SHAREHOLDER NOTICE: Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP Encourages Investors Who Suffered Losses in Excess of $100,000 Investing in MDC Partners, Inc. to Contact the Firm

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - August 14, 2015) - Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities law firm, reminds investors in MDC Partners, Inc. ("MDC" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: MDCA) of the September 29, 2015 deadline to seek the role of lead plaintiff in a federal securities class action lawsuit filed against the Company and certain officers.

The lawsuit has been filed in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York on behalf of a class consisting of all persons or entities who purchased MDC securities between September 24, 2013, and April 27, 2015 ("Class Period").

The complaint alleges that MDC's SEC filings materially understated the Company's executive compensation while its financial statements failed to disclose certain related party transactions. The complaint also claims that the Company's reported goodwill was materially overstated.

Specifically, on April 27, 2015, MDC announced its financial results for the period ended March 31, 2015 and disclosed that the SEC had been conducting a formal investigation into the Company's reporting of executive compensation and goodwill. The Company also announced the creation of a Special Committee to conduct an internal investigation in regards to the reimbursement of expenses purportedly incurred by defendant Miles Nadal, MDC's Chairman, Chief Executive Officer, and President during the Class Period.

After this announcement, the MDC share price fell from a closing price of $27.98 per share on April 27, 2015 to a closing price of $20.20 on August 8, 2015 -- $7.78, or a 27.9% drop.
