Major Market Digital Billboard Campaign Alerts Public to Impact of $13 Billion Annual Industrial Espionage Problem

Clear Channel Outdoor Americas (NYSE: CCO) is committing its resources and support to a Federal Bureau of Investigation campaign to bring nationwide attention to the impact of industrial espionage, a crime that costs the country $13 billion a year and does irreparable harm to U.S. business and the public at large.

A series of stark and striking digital billboards and bus shelters have gone on display for a two-week period that began Friday, May 11, in cities and major markets including: New York/New Jersey, Washington D.C./Baltimore; Chicago; Boston; San Francisco; Miami; Salisbury, Maryland; and Columbus, Ohio. These regions of the country were specifically chosen due to their concentration of high-tech research and development companies, laboratories, major industries, and national defense contractors.

This campaign is the most recent demonstration of the ways in which Clear Channel Outdoor regularly partners with local and national law enforcement agencies to support emergency situations such as amber alerts and their public service campaigns to fight crime. Clear Channel Outdoor’s partnership with the FBI began in 2007. As of February 2012, there have been at least 42 dangerous and violent fugitives apprehended or turned in as a result of a photograph on a CCO digital billboard. In addition, dozens of missing children have either been found, or a tip has been generated to help find them, as a direct result of support provided on CCO digital billboards. Clear Channel Outdoor Holdings, Inc. is the parent company of Clear Channel Outdoor Americas.

“Clear Channel is proud to support the FBI’s effort to stem trade secret theft which is a serious and growing threat to our country’s economic health and security,” says Bryan Parker, Clear Channel Outdoor Executive VP of Real Estate and Public Affairs. “Outdoor advertising, and especially digital billboards, are committed to supporting national and local law enforcement because we command the public’s attention in singular ways that makes it ideally suited to these kinds of public service campaigns.”
