WPP has shortlisted a series of U.S. buyout funds to submit binding bids for a majority stake in its data analytics unit Kantar as it wants to finalise the sale in late June, four sources familiar with the matter told Reuters. Private equity firms Bain Capital, Apollo and Platinum have made it through to the final stages of the auction along with a fourth undisclosed bidder, the sources said. The world's biggest advertising company held management presentations with the bidders on May 15, one of the sources said, and aims to wrap up the process towards the end of June.
WPP (NYSE: WPP) has been awarded VodafoneZiggo’s strategic marketing and communications brief, following a competitive pitch process. The newly established bespoke multi-disciplinary team, WPP Go One, will work together with VodafoneZiggo and act as the core leadership team for the company’s operations in the Netherlands as it continues to put customer experience at the centre of its marketing and communications activity. This creative, strategic partnership will be partly based onsite at the client and at Amsteldok, WPP’s recently opened campus in Amsterdam, which brings 15 agencies under one roof, giving clients easier access to the breadth and depth of WPP’s talent and expertise.

The world's biggest advertising company WPP suffered a sharp drop in first-quarter underlying sales in North America as the loss of work from clients such as Ford took a toll on its most important market. WPP, led by company veteran Mark Read following last year's departure of founder Martin Sorrell, said its U.S. performance was disappointing but in line with expectations. WPP, the owner of agencies including JWT and Ogilvy, is in the middle of an overhaul following several profit warnings in 2017 and 2018 and the turmoil linked to Sorrell's abrupt departure over a complaint of misconduct, which he denied.
ADVERTISING giant WPP today posted falling sales after suffering blue-chip client losses, while ousted former CEO Sir Martin Sorrell stepped up his wheeller-dealing. The ad giant — now describing itself as a “creative transformation company” — saw sales in the first quarter down 8.5% in the first quarter. The loss of accounts from Ford, American Express, HSBC and some big pharma companies were behind the falls, leaving chief executive Mark Read facing “a challenging year”.
