NEW YORK, Jan. 16, 2014

NEW YORK, Jan. 16, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- CBS Corporation (NYSE: CBS.A and CBS)
today announced that its CBS Outdoor advertising subsidiaries have priced an
$800 million offering of senior unsecured notes in two tranches—$400 million
of 5.25% notes due 2022, and $400 million of 5.625% notes due 2024. The notes
are being issued as part of the Company's plans to separate the outdoor
business, and the offering is expected to close on January 31, 2014, subject
to customary closing conditions.

CBS also announced today that the CBS Outdoor subsidiaries have established
pricing for an $800 million term loan B facility maturing in 2021, at a rate
of LIBOR plus 2.25% with a LIBOR floor of 0.75%. The term loan is expected to
be entered into contemporaneously with the issuance of the notes, subject to
completion of documentation and customary closing conditions. The Company
expects CBS Outdoor to use the net proceeds from both the notes and the term
loan to pay CBS as partial consideration for the contribution of the Outdoor
business entities. CBS Outdoor will use any remaining net proceeds for
corporate purposes and ongoing cash needs.

The notes were offered and will be sold in a private placement to qualified
institutional buyers in the United States pursuant to Rule 144A under the
Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"), and to non-U.S.
persons in transactions outside the United States pursuant to Regulation S
under the Securities Act. The notes have not been registered under the
Securities Act and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent
registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements of
the Securities Act.

This press release does not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of
an offer to buy the notes, nor shall there be any sale of the notes in any
state or other jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be
unlawful prior to the registration or qualification under the securities laws
of any such state or other jurisdiction.
