•           We have expanded our successful brand identity unit, RE from Sydney to London.

•           We are taking our research agency, the Source, on its first expansion from London, to  Melbourne.

•           We have spread Sports and Entertainment's wings to cover LA.

•           We are also taking our strategic consultancy Clear to LA, as well as opening in Berlin.

•           We are looking at expanding the advertising network to Mexico City.


"In terms of New Business, group companies have made a good start:

•           The LA office won Pacific Life, the American mutual insurance company.

•           Our French colleagues won Haribo Candy.

•           SS+K NY, in whom we have increased our stake from 51% to 67%, have won some Samsung and Airbnb.

•           And M&C Saatchi PR won Virgin.


"All of this gives the Board confidence of another successful year for the company."
