    Second Chinese director to quit board of WPP Group

    WPP Group has begun approaching senior Chinese business figures about joining its board, as its last-remaining director from the world's second-largest economy prepares to step down after nearly nine years.

    Exclusive: Advent and Blackstone among bidders for WPP market research arm Kantar - sources

    A series of buyout funds including U.S. firms Advent and Blackstone are in talks with advertising group WPP to explore bids for a majority stake in its data analytics unit Kantar, four sources familiar with the matter told Reuters. The sale, led by Goldman Sachs, may value Kantar at up to 3.5 billion pounds, but some private equity investors are fretting over the decline in profits and revenues that the business has suffered in recent years. Hellman & Friedman and CVC Capital Partners are also working on the deal, the sources said, while industry players have so far shied away from the process.

    Sir Martin Sorrell hails surging revenues at his new advertising business

    Former WPP chief Sir Martin Sorrell today declared his new digital-only business was in the “sweet spot” of the advertising world as the companies he has bought reported surging revenues. Sir Martin left WPP under a cloud last year but launched a start-up focusing solely on online ads, buying content producer MediaMonks and automated “programmatic” ad-space buying firm MightyHive. Sir Martin said the digital market was growing at 20-30% while the market for the big holding companies such as WPP, Publicis and others was only growing at 2-3%.

    [$$] WPP Will Pay Martin Sorrell More Than $2 Million in Shares as Part of Long-Term Bonus

    WPP PLC said it would pay its former Chief Executive Martin Sorrell shares worth more than 2 million pounds, or $2.65 million, as part of his long-term bonus, despite having threatened to withhold the payment following his departure from the firm. The decline of WPP’s shares over the past two years left Mr. Sorrell with about a third of the maximum payment granted under the company’s long-term bonus program. The decision to pay Mr. Sorrell marks a potential detente in the feud between the high-profile ad executive and the company he founded decades ago, building it into an advertising behemoth.

    European shares start March higher as Moncler, WPP shine

    European shares rose to five-month highs on Friday, starting the month on a strong footing, as a fresh batch of corporate updates fuelled risk appetite, even after U.S. President Donald Trump raised some concerns over trade talks with China. "Momentum has flagged slightly in recent sessions and concrete news of an agreement between the U.S. and China is now needed to prolong the rally in risk assets," wrote Peel Hunt analyst Ian Williams. In the meantime it was up to corporate earnings to maintain morale, he added.

    UK main index bounces back on WPP strength; Relx tumbles

    The FTSE 100 added 0.5 percent, as a steep fall in information and analytics provider Relx curbed gains in the index, while the FTSE 250 bounced 1.1 percent to levels not seen since early November.
