Q3 2013 Revenue
3rd Quarter 2013
At September 30, 2013 (first 9 months)
Maurice LÃ©vy, Chairman and CEO of Publicis Groupe:
"Our third quarter was in line with our internal forecasts despite tensions stemming from Brazil and the situation in Syria. Europe, for the first time this year posted moderate growth.
As for the good news, let's emphasize our performance in digital activities which grew by 12.3%. As the analog market shrinks, our strategy of focusing development in the digital sector has continued to prove being right.
I would like to pay tribute to our teams, as attuned as ever to our clients, while pursuing efforts to win over new accounts. In the first nine months of the year, we totaled 3.4 billion dollars of new business.
During this third quarter, we also started the merger process of Publicis Groupe and Omnicom announced on July 28. Everything is going to plan, with special mention regarding the filing with the competition authorities, an arduous task well handled by the teams of both groups. Â
For the purposes of the merger and to simplify our balance sheet, we proposed an early redemption to the holders of Orane bonds.
At their general meeting of October 10, they gave us great support by unanimously approving the entire set of resolutions put before them.
I have to say that their unanimous approval of the proposed merger is an extremely interesting and positive indication of their support for this project.
We will, of course, have to reach crucial milestones in the weeks and months to come, but we are on the right track.
For 2013, we are maintaining our internal objectives of organic growth above the 2.9% achieved in 2012, in the region of 3.5 to 3.6%. Â However, as is the case every year, the fourth quarter is always somewhat unpredictable given volatility levels at year-end. Â Caution is required particularly since the global economic situation has come under the threat of government shutdown in the USA. Â We are nonetheless confident about 2013, confident about our growth and margin performance, and confident about the new page of history we will be writing with our merger of equals alongside Omnicom."
3rd quarter 2013Â
Publicis Groupe reported consolidated revenue of 1,675 million euro for Q3 2013, i.e. a 3.0% increase on Q3 2012.
Exchange rates had a negative impact of 95 million euro between Q3 2012 and Q3 2013. Reported growth would stand at 9.3% if exchange rates had remained constant.
Organic growth reached 3.5%, up from 2.0% for the same period in 2012 (when September stood at -1.6%). Despite the lackluster geopolitical and economic environment, this third-quarter performance is satisfactory by comparison with in-house expectations. It is also a reflection on the temporary slowdown in China and continued weakness in Europe, though performance has improved here. The quarter has also been marked by a sharp increase in digital activities.
Q3 2013 revenue by region
|(EUR million)||Revenue||Organic growth||Reported growth|
|Q3 2013||Q3 2012||Q3 2013||Q3 2013/Q32012|
|Europe*||Â 469||Â 429||Â +0.4%||+9.3%|
|North America||Â 825||Â 805||Â +4.5%||+2.5%|
|BRIC+MISSAT**||Â 217||Â 220||Â +1.5%||-1.4%|
|Rest of the world||Â 164||Â 173||+10.1%||-5.2%|
|Total||Â 1,675||Â 1,627||Â +3.5%||+3.0%|
** Â MISSAT: Mexico, Indonesia, Singapore, South Africa and Turkey
Europe posted moderately positive growth (+0.4%), though France continued to report negative growth, even if somewhat improved.The UK returned strong growth of +7.1%, while southern Europe continued to perform very poorly. The eastern European countries reported high growth rates (Poland +14.4% and Hungary +8.6%).Â
North America achieved good growth (+4.5%), though slightly down on the second quarter due to the weak performance of PR activities. Â Healthcare activities have improved, though remain unstable.Â
The BRIC and MISSAT countries achieved combined organic growth of +1.5% as a result of contrasting situations from one country to another, e.g. a temporary slowdown in Greater China (+2.4%), economic difficulties in India that adversely affected investment, and underperformance in Russia. Brazil's +3.1% growth, despite an environment that has become more difficult since the start of the year, remains satisfactory as do the good achievements of Mexico (+6.2%), South Africa (+10.5%) and Turkey (+17.1%).Â
The Rest of the world grew by +10.1% (Australia +13.8%, Korea +5.9%, Argentina +11.7%).Â
At September 30, 2013Â
Publicis Groupe's consolidated revenue rose +6.7% to 5,026 million euro over the first nine months of 2013.
Exchange rates had a negative impact of 148 million euro between 2012 and 2013. Â Reported growth would stand at 10.1% if exchange rates had remained constant.
At September 30, 2013, organic growth was +3.3% for the first nine months of the year, up from +2.5% at September 30, 2012. Â Furthermore, growth is in line with our plans.
Revenue at September 30, 2013 (9 months) by region
|(EUR million)||Revenue||Organic Growth||Reported growth|
|Sept. 30, 2013||Sept. 30, 2012||Sept. 30, 2013||2013/2012|
|Europe*||Â 1,439||Â 1,308||Â -2.3%||Â +10.0%|
|North America||Â 2,455||Â 2,312||Â +5.5%||Â +6.2%|
|BRIC+MISSAT**||Â 651||Â 605||Â +4.1%||Â +7.6%|
|Rest of the world||Â 481||Â 486||Â +7.6%||Â -1.0%|
|Total||Â 5,026||Â 4,711||Â +3.3%||Â +6.7%|
** Â MISSAT: Mexico, Indonesia, Singapore, South Africa and Turkey
For the record, revenue was 1,563 million euro in Q1 2013 and 1,788 million euro in Q2 2013 (compared with 1,452 million euro and 1,632 million euro respectively in Q1 and Q2 2012). Organic growth was 1.3% and 5.0% in the first two quarters, compared with 4.1% and 1.6% respectively in Q1 and Q2 2012.
As of September 30, 2013, digital activities accounted for 37.6% of the Groupe's revenue, up from 33.3% in 2012. Digital activities recorded organic growth of 12.3% in Q3 only, and 11.5% for the first nine months of 2013.
Digital has shown strong momentum with double-digit growth everywhere except in Europe which does not take into account the LBi business acquired in January 2013. This has offset the 0.8% decline in the analog business (-5.1% in Europe excluding Russia and Turkey). This strongly supports the relevance of Publicis Groupe's digital strategy.
|Europe*||North America||BRIC+MISSAT||Rest of the world||Total|
* Europe: excluding Russia and Turkey
Revenue generated in the high-growth countries accounted for 24.1% of total revenue.
II - Net debt

Average net debt for the period was 584 million euro, down from 764 million euro in 2012.
At September 30, 2013, the Groupe's had 2,562 million euro in available liquidities.

On September 24, Publicis Groupe announced that all the brands of its production platforms were being renamed "Prodigious". By bringing all its activities under the Prodigious brand, the Groupe has endowed itself with a major player in a sector perceived by clients as important in terms of quality control and production costs.

Further to the proposal put forward by Dentsu, Publicis Groupe bought back close to 3.9 million of its own shares, in the form of a block transaction before the market opened for trading on February 15, 2013, for a total of 181 million euro, i.e. 46.82 euro per share.
IV - The Publicis - Omnicom merger
On July 28, 2013, Omnicom Inc. and Publicis Groupe announced their agreement for a merger of equals. This project is set against a backdrop of rapid transformation since the sharp rise of digital services in our businesses, not to mention the emergence of newcomers posting exponential growth rates. The work performed by advertising agencies has undergone a deep transformation, and is now the result of a complex equation combining strategic intelligence, science and technology, and that emotional creative link (IQ+TQ+EQ).
This merger will enable us to provide our clients with the means to conduct their marketing and communications campaigns in a completely integrated manner, thus achieving cutting edge performance while containing costs. It also entails granting clients access to digital innovation in all areas, including data management, mobile or e-commerce, and the social media.
This merger will offer to all our people new and exciting professional opportunities thanks to superb training programs and the diversity of assets in an enlarged group.
V - Recent events
Acquisition of majority holdings in long-standing partner agencies (associates) in Romania: Leo Burnet & Target, Starcom MediaVest Group, Optimedia, The Practice, and iLeo.
Mandatory early redemption of Orane bonds (bonds redeemable in new or existing shares) in order to simplify the structure of Publicis Groupe's balance sheet prior to the merger with Omnicom.
The holders of Orane bonds issued on September 24, 2002 (issuance brochure approved by the COB on May 16, 2002 under No. 02-564, ISIN code FR0000187783) were convened to a general meeting on October 10, 2013. The Orane bondholders unanimously approved the proposed merger of Publicis with the new entity Publicis Omnicom Group, as part of the proposed combination of Publicis and Omnicom announced on July 28, 2013.
They further approved certain terms and conditions of the above-mentioned Orane bonds in order to (a) provide for the early redemption of said bonds subsequent to the extraordinary general meeting of Publicis shareholders to be convened to vote on the merger (this particular case of redemption shall not affect Orane holders entitlement to early redemption prior to this general meeting , by virtue of article 22.214.171.124 of the issuance brochure), and (b) decide that the coupon accrued at the time of this early redemption shall be calculated at a rate of 3.2946% per annum.
Publicis wishes to point out that the redemption parity has been adjusted by a multiple of 1.015 in order to take account of the portion of dividends paid in 2003 and 2004 out of the company's reserve and premium accounts. As a result of this adjustment, each Orane bond is entitled to 9.135 Publicis shares (as opposed to 9 shares). It ensues that Publicis will offer current and former Orane bondholders - who can provide evidence of holding Orane bonds at the time of amortization and payment of the coupons corresponding to the period of entitlement, i.e. from September 1, 2009 to September 1, 2013 - compensation equivalent to the additional shares and coupons they should have received between these dates.
VI - Outlook
In a global economic environment in which the economies of developed countries are gradually gaining ground, with signs of recovery in the heart of the euro zone but a slowing of growth in the emerging markets, ZenithOptimedia has not modified its growth forecasts for the advertising market in 2013. After its initial forecast of 4.1% growth for 2013 back in December 2012, which was subsequently revised downwards to 3.9% in April and again to 3.5% in June, ZenithOptimedia has since maintained its 3.5% growth forecast for 2013.
Publicis Groupe confirms its expectation that organic growth in 2013 will be higher than the 2.9% achieved in 2012. Nine months into 2013, organic growth stands at 3.3%, in line with our internal objectives. As is the case every year, the fourth quarter comprises a number of possible adjustments especially towards year-end. We should be able to reach our goals in terms of margin enhancement. As regards organic growth the 2014 vintage holds greater promise.
