Young & Rubicam Mulls Acquisitions

Young & Rubicam, Inc. plans to make acquisitions. David Sable, Global Chief Executive of Young & Rubicam, said, “Acquisitions are something we don't rule out. But the fit has to be right. We would, for instance, look at acquisitions in social media. But not in areas such as digital, where we have a unit (VML Qais) in operation. We have the wherewithal to grow this operation organically, which is where our attention will be focused. While acquiring scale is fine, we are trying to position ourselves as a global boutique, where we can be true partners to our clients. Bits and pieces of this have been unveiled in India and other parts of the world; you will see more of it now.”
