Home to ad agencies Leo Burnett and Saatchi & Saatchi, the French company posted net revenue of 2.80 billion euros ($3.05 billion), up 10.5% organically, against a 6.3% increase forecast by analysts in a consensus compiled by Publicis. "We started the year very strongly, both financially and commercially," Chief Executive Officer Arthur Sadoun said in a statement as he shared his confidence in coming in at the upper end of an unchanged 4%-5% full-year organic growth target.
Michelin and BMW were among the latest companies on Wednesday to warn of disruption to their businesses from Russia's invasion of Ukraine, while ad group Publicis said it had handed over control of its Russian subsidiary to protect its staff. The list of Western companies that have suspended operations or pulled out of Russia is growing by the day after the West imposed sanctions aimed at curbing Moscow's access to funding. Germany's BMW joined other carmakers in detailing the impact of the unfolding crisis in Ukraine on its operations as it downgraded its profit margin forecast.
The firm is handing over control of its Russian operations to Sergey Koptev, founding chairman of Publicis in Russia, with the clear contractual condition of ensuring a future for employees there, the French company said.
