    WPP objects to Bain's offer for Japan's Asatsu-DK

    LONDON, Oct (Shenzhen: 000069.SZ - news) 12 (Reuters) - WPP (Frankfurt: A1J2BZ - news) , the world's biggest advertising agency, on Thursday stepped up its efforts to stop U.S. private equity firm Bain Capital from buying Japan's Asatsu-DK Inc, saying the offer significantly undervalued its stake in the firm. Bain announced an agreed deal to buy Japan's third-largest advertising agency this month for $1.35 billion, marking a 15.4 percent premium over the day before it was announced. On Thursday it questioned whether Asatsu-DK had considered any other offer for the company and said it had concerns about the group's overall strategy in terms of its approach to improving overseas operations and developing digital services.

    North America ad spending growth tops Europe amid slowdown in UK - Zenith

    Growth in North American advertising spending in 2017 is being lifted by Canada's buoyant economy and is outpacing growth in Western and Central Europe where Britain's political and economic uncertainty has weighed, a leading forecaster said. A slowdown in Britain would drag down spending growth in Western and Central Europe to 2 percent in 2017 from 3.9 percent last year, Zenith said, adding it expected average annual growth in the region of 2.6 percent to 2019.

    France's Havas says will not meet 2017 organic growth target

    France's Havas (LSE: 0MGT.L - news) said on Friday it could not confirm its forecast of organic growth of 2-3 percent for 2017, as declining investment from advertisers, increasing margin pressure and a downturn in high-growth markets weighed on first-half revenue. "Havas' financial performance in the first half of 2017 suffered a slowdown which affected the industry as a whole and led to revenue and profitability below our expectations," Chief (Taiwan OTC: 3345.TWO - news) Executive Yannick Bollore said in a statement. Havas has not only seen spending decrease in the consumer goods sector, but also in the telecoms and automotive sectors, Yannick Bollore said during a call.

    Pay for FTSE 100 bosses down almost 20% in a year

    The median pay for a FTSE 100 chief executive has fallen by almost 20% over the past year, according to audit firm Deloitte. The figures, which are included in a preview of Deloitte's annual FTSE 100 remuneration report, come after a number of high-profile companies faced shareholder revolts over their levels of executive pay. Perhaps the most notable of these has been WPP (Frankfurt: A1J2BZ - news) , the global advertising agency, whose top boss Sir Martin Sorrell has received the highest pay packet of any FTSE 100 boss for the past several years.

    '160 years' to earn average pay of top bosses, says High Pay Centre

    It would now take the typical UK worker 160 years to rake in the average annual amount handed to a FTSE 100 boss, according to a study. The report, by the High Pay Centre pressure group and the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD), said it represented an increase of 20 years on the pay gap in 2015. It blamed the largely stagnant nature of pay growth for the rise, with its analysis suggesting the gulf was widening despite a marked fall in the total awards received by the chief executives as boardrooms come under pressure.
