NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / December 15, 2021 / Focus Financial Partners Inc. (NASDAQ:FOCS) (“Focus”) announced today that it has launched an underwritten offering (the “Offering”) of 3,204,448 shares of its Class A common stock. This amount includes 2,500,000 shares being offered by Focus for its own account and 704,448 shares being offered by Focus on behalf of certain of the existing unitholders of Focus Financial Partners, LLC (“Focus LLC”), its operating subsidiary. Focus intends to grant the underwriters a 30-day option to purchase up to an additional 480,667 shares of Focus’ Class A common stock.

Focus intends to contribute the net proceeds from the sale of the shares of Class A common stock that it is offering to Focus LLC in exchange for newly issued common units in Focus LLC.
