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. Sky News has learnt that Ruigang Li, founder of the prolific media and entertainment investor China Media Capital, has told colleagues that he will not stand for re-election at the marketing services giant's next annual meeting in June. Mr Li's departure from the board will come less than a year after Hugo Shong, WPP's other Chinese director, resigned.

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.
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 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.
WPP (NYSE:WPP) today announces the appointment of Cindy Rose OBE to its Board as a non-executive director.

Prior to joining Microsoft, Rose was Managing Director of the UK Consumer division at Vodafone where she led the expansion of its retail store estate from 350 to over 500 stores.

Royston Wild discusses a FTSE 100 (INDEXFTSE: UKX) income stock that could help you avoid pensioner poverty.
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.
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. "I think the market is progressively anticipating a compromise (on Brexit) ... I remain optimistic regarding the pound and more domestic UK shares," Raymond James analyst Chris Bailey said. WPP, the world's biggest advertising company, jumped 5 percent on its best day in nearly a year after results showed that although underlying net sales fell 0.4 percent in 2018, it was better than a forecast of a 0.5 percent dip.
PLC jumped 8% Friday after the advertising giant reported better-than-expected fourth-quarter results and said its performance should improve toward the end of 2019. The London-based company, whose agencies include Ogilvy & Mather and Group M, is wrestling with a shift to digital ads from print and TV, as well as tighter spending by clients and demand for new services such as data analytics.
