Lazard Ltd (NYSE:LAZ) announced today the Total Consideration as set forth in the table below in respect of the previously announced cash tender offer (the “Tender Offer”) of its subsidiary Lazard Group LLC (“Lazard Group”) for any and all of its outstanding 7.125% Senior Notes due May 15, 2015 (the “Notes”).

The Tender Offer is being made upon the terms and conditions in the Offer to Purchase and related Letter of Transmittal dated November 6, 2013.

Holders of the Notes are urged to carefully read the Offer to Purchase and related Letter of Transmittal before making any decision with respect to the Tender Offer.

As previously announced, holders must validly tender and not subsequently validly withdraw their Notes on or prior to the Expiration Time to be eligible to receive the Total Consideration.
