Maurice Levy, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Publicis Groupe, commented:
"The figures speak for themselves: organic growth of 8.3% for the year as a whole with a marked acceleration in the fourth quarter (12.5%), taking the Groupe's annual revenue to well above the five billion euro mark (5,418 million). The operating margin has improved by 80bp to 15.8%, compared to 2009 and net profit has risen to 526 million euro (+30.5%).
My first reaction to this remarkable performance is to address my warmest thanks to our clients for their trust in us, and to our staff for the talent they have displayed in doing their jobs, their tireless efforts, and their devotion to our clients.
Our financial situation is extremely robust and enables us to look ahead to the future with serenity. Investment will be aimed first and foremost at consolidating our two growth pillars: the digital sector in which we intend to strengthen our leadership position, and high-growth countries in which we must increase our presence even more rapidly.
For some years now we have regularly out-performed the market, and I am convinced that we shall continue to forge ahead in the years to come. There are several reasons for this: our asset profile perfectly matches the needs of advertisers, particularly in the field of digital communication (the Internet, social networks, mobile communication, etc.), our well-balanced business portfolio, our culture based on client service and cost control, and - though I hardly need to say it - the exceptional motivation of all our staff. Publicis Groupe's excellent 2010 annual results have put an end to the impact of the global financial crisis, and the Groupe has emerged from this difficult context considerably stronger."
The Supervisory Board of Publicis Groupe, at its meeting on February 9, 2011, chaired by Mrs Elisabeth Badinter, examined the accounts for the 2010 financial period presented by Mr Maurice Levy, Chairman and CEO.

Business in 2010: Performance of all sectors in all regions
During this year of stabilization and then of recovery, Publicis Groupe achieved very good results in all sectors of business in all parts of the world.
- 2010 Revenue
Consolidated revenue totaled 5,418 million euro in 2010, up 19.8% from 4,524 million euro in 2009. The exchange rate impact was +242 million euro.
Organic growth was 8.3% for the year, with very strong growth in the last quarter. This is to be compared with 6.5% decrease in 2009. Razorfish is only factored into the calculation of organic growth from October 13, 2010.
All activities posted growth in 2010. Digital activities accounted for 28.0% of total revenue, compared with 22.4% during the previous period, and achieved much higher growth than the overall market.
Fast growing economies represented 22.7% of total revenue (if we factor out Razorfish, which contributed to the increase in revenue in the North America, high-growth economies accounted for 23.8% of total revenue).
The breakdown of consolidated revenue in 2010 is as follows: 32.6% from advertising (35% in 2009), 20.0% from media (21% in 2009), 47.4% from SAMS which included all digital activities (44% in 2009).
- Breakdown of 2010 revenue by geography (million euro) Revenue Organic growth 2010/2009 2010 2009 Europe 1,761 1,579 +6.0% +11.5% North America 2,606 2,094 +9.9% +24.4% Asia-Pacific 617 498 +7.0% +23.8% Latin America 284 218 +13.7% +30.4% Africa and 150 135 +4.8% +12.3% Middle East Total 5,418 4,524 +8.3% +19.8%
All regions without exception posted growth in 2010.
Europe, after being severely affected in 2009, especially in the south, returned to growth at a rate of 6.0%. Almost every country in Western Europe achieved positive figures, with France turning in the best performance at +11.2%. Northern Europe improved but was still slightly negative, while southern Europe is back posting positive growth. Eastern Europe and Russia posted 7.2% growth.
North America achieved a remarkable turnaround, posting growth of 9.9% in 2010, after strong resilience in 2009 thanks to the high contribution of digital services to the region's revenue. This growth was largely shored up by the strong performance of digital business which accounted for 42.6% of the region's revenue in 2010.
Asia-Pacific also posted a significant recovery, and while the performances of individual countries are quite contrasted, the vast majority of countries achieved positive growth.
All the Latin American countries generated strong growth in 2010 (e.g. Mexico, Argentina, Venezuela, Colombia).
The Africa and Middle East region was back to positive growth in 2010 after being severely affected by the financial crisis in Dubai.
- Q4 2010 Revenue : Exceptional Organic Growth of 12.5%
Consolidated revenue in Q4 2010 was 1,560 million euro, i.e. a 23.0% increase over the 1,268 million for the corresponding period in 2009 (the exchange rate impact was +97 million euro). For the record, organic growth was 3.1%, 7.1% and 9.2% in the 1st, 2nd and 3rd quarters, respectively.
- Breakdown of Q4 2010 Revenue by Geography (million euro) Revenue Organic growth 2010/2009 Q4 2010 Q4 2009 Europe 556 483 +11.3% +15.1% North America 683 545 +14.0% +25.2% Asia-Pacific 180 146 +6.4% +23.1% Latin America 87 51 +22.1% +70.9% Africa and Middle East 54 43 +15.3% +26.4% Total 1.560 1.268 12.5% 23.0%
Growth in Q4 2010 was outstanding in almost every country and region of the world. This performance is consistent with the ongoing improvement observed quarter after quarter, and reflects the strength of the Groupe's activities in all market sectors throughout the whole world.
Operating margin before depreciation and amortization was 967 million euro in 2010, a 25.3% increase from 772 million euro in 2009.
Operating margin was 856 million euro, up 25.9% by comparison with 2009.
Personnel expenses rose 19.0% from 2,812 million in 2009 to 3,346 million euro in 2010 representing 61.8% of consolidated revenue. Given the return of growth, the pace of recruitment had to be stepped up. Serious efforts were made to limit the fixed component of personnel costs, and this was successfully achieved during this year of redeployment and growth.
Thanks to the results posted by the Groupe and the efforts made by staff, it will be possible to pay performance-related bonuses normally.
Other operating expenses totaled 1,105 million euro, up 17.6% from 2009, mainly due to higher commercial costs, increased travel expenses and higher depreciation and amortization, though administrative costs fell as a result of the continued emphasis on cost optimization in line with the Shared Services Centers program.
Operating margin rate was 15.8% in 2010. This improved percentage margin compared to 2009 is a reflection of the Groupe's strong revenue growth, especially in the last quarter and more particularly in December, and does factor in Razorfish integration costs.
In addition, the cost of restructuring and other structural operations in 2010 alone stood at 49 million euro, i.e. 31 million euro less than in 2009.
Rigorous cost management across the Groupe, irrespective of revenue fluctuations, is undeniably a competitive strength and enables us to simultaneously absorb the cost of integrating various acquisitions and speed up the roll-out of digital services throughout the world.
After net financial expenses of 76 million euros, tax charges of 216 million, profits of entities accounted for by the equity method totaling 8 million and minority interests of 25 million, net income attributable to the Groupe amounted to 526 million euros for 2010 compared with 403 million in 2009 i.e. a 30.5% increase.
Free Cash Flow
The Groupe's free cash flow, excluding changes in working capital requirements, rose 23% to 646 million euro.
Net financial debt was reduced by 499 million euro, with the situation moving from net debt of 393 million euro at year-end 2009 to a positive cash situation of 106 million euro at year-end 2010. This demonstrates the marked improvement in cash flow from operations.
This debt reduction completely wiped out the net debt, compared with a Debt/Equity ratio of 0.14 at the end of 2009. The Groupe's average net debt in 2010 was reduced by over 300 million euro, i.e. down from 929 million euro in 2009 to 608 million euro in 2010.
Importantly, the Groupe's available liquidity position was further improved by comparison with December 31, 2009, rising from 3,968 million euro to 4,531 million euro at the end of 2010 (4,319 million when only committed facilities were taken into account).
Consolidated shareholders' equity, including minority interests, rose from 2, 838 million euros on December 31, 2009 to 3,382 million euros on December 31, 2010.
A dividend of 0.70 euro per share will be proposed and -subject to Shareholders' approval at the June 7, 2011 AGM- payable on July 5, 2011.

In addition, Publicis Groupe extended the reach of the "50 free shares" program by rolling out the plan in the USA following the French roll-out in 2009. Furthermore, the LTIP (Long-Term Incentive Plan) resumed in 2010 after a two-year break.
Social responsibility and sustainable development
Publicis Groupe has demonstrated its continuing commitment to social and environmental responsibility by publishing a CSR report compliant with GRI standards and carrying out a carbon audit at the Groupe level. For the record, the action plan is organized along 4 major lines with the aim of bringing about simultaneous improvements in all these sectors:
- Corporate: strengthen concrete actions in favor of employees: training, diversity, incentives. The Publicis Groupe Diversity Council in the United States has continued to promote and co-ordinate the actions undertaken by the networks to encourage all forms of diversity. - Social: continue to participate actively in the community, with schools, universities and professional organizations. Continue to support worthwhile causes through pro bono campaigns. - Governance/Economy: strengthen the application of the "Janus" Corporate Policy Code, take account of new ethical issues in our professions, improve our CSR reporting, etc. - Environment: reduce the Groupe's footprint.
II. Cost control
Operational management within the Groupe continued to focus on growth and enhanced profitability, with special emphasis as usual on costs:
- on one hand to rigorously manage the need for extra talent arising from the advertising sector's return to growth and the development of digital services, - on the other hand to continue with the implementation of the Horizon plan. The Shared-Services Centers (SSC) deployment plan continued throughout the year on all continents and the establishment of regional platforms (commenced in America and South-East Asia in 2009) has been a source of satisfaction. The Americas platform, which will serve the American continent, is nearing completion. The property consolidation programs were implemented very actively in the Groupe's main markets in 2010 (USA, UK, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Poland, Australia, Argentina, etc.) as were the global and regional procurement programs aimed at Groupe expense items and production costs.
The Groupe continues to implement its ERP system, thanks to the integration of a large number of agencies using the Shared-Services Centers and the standardization of common processes. Once this project is up and running, it will substantially reduce operating costs in the years to come.
III. New Business: Net gains of 5.9 billion dollars
Publicis Groupe made net gains of New Business worth 5.9 billion US dollars during the year: clear proof of the attractiveness of its offering (see list in appendix).
During the year, Publicis Groupe made several acquisitions in various parts of the world and took a minority stake in Taterka Comunicacoes, a Brazilian advertising agency based in Sao Paulo and covering 18 countries in Latin America. All these transactions fall under Publicis Groupe's policy of continuing to expand its digital business while reinforcing its presence in high-growth countries, healthcare and public relations.
- Acquisition in the digital sector: AG2, one of Brazil's top digital and interactive agencies, specialized in economic intelligence and bringing new skills in the field of interactive brand management. - Acquisitions in the healthcare communications field: - In-Sync, based in Toronto, an agency specialized in healthcare communications and market surveys; - Resolute Communications, a London-based healthcare communications agency with operations in New York as well. Resolute Communications provides healthcare communications programs that encompass strategic advisory services, medical training and public relations. Resolute joined Publicis Life Brands in London; - Digital District, a German-based agency with specialized skills in the definition and roll-out of communication strategies; - Healthcare Consulting, acquired in December. Now Publicis Healthcare Consulting, this Paris-based agency with operations in New York offers a broad range of advisory solutions in several fields of expertise such as access to markets, promotions, distribution, new technologies, the emerging markets, capitalizing on research, industrial transfers and new industry players. - Acquisitions in the public relations business, targeting essentially high-growth economies: - 20:20 Media and 2020Social, two agencies specialized in public relations and social media in India. 20:20 Media is the leading agency for clients in the field of technology communications, an area in which it has played a pioneering role. 2020Social brings us the expertise of India's first agency to specialize in strategic advisory services in social media. This acquisition enabled the Groupe to launch MSLGROUP India which is now the leading communications network specializing in public relations and the social media. - Eastwei Relations in China. This PR and strategic consulting business - which boasts tools, processes and proprietary software packages that are specific to the management of strategic communications campaigns in the Chinese market - has been renamed Eastwei MSL and is now part of the MSLGROUP network.
These two acquisitions should re-energize the know-how of MSLGROUP, which is the main specialized communications, PR and events network in Asia.
- Still in the PR field, Publicis Groupe consolidated its stake in Andreoli MS&L in Brazil, thus becoming the majority shareholder in one of the five biggest multidisciplinary PR agencies in Brazil, setting up a reference platform for MSLGROUP in South America. - Acquisitions in the domain of integrated communications - the G4 agency: Beijing-headquartered G4 provides integrated communications solutions including advertising, design and consulting services on behalf of Nestle in China. This agency, now known as Publicis G4, has taken on Publicis Beijing's Nestle team to accompany this major client more extensively throughout China. - W&K Beijing Advertising Co., in China: The Groupe has acquired the remainder of the capital, and this subsidiary is now wholly-owned. It has been renamed Leo Burnett Beijing Communications Co. Ltd., and contributes to Leo Burnett's expansion in the Beijing market. - Talent Group, in Brazil: acquisition of a 49% stake in Talent Group, one of the country's biggest advertising firms, with the option of becoming majority shareholder at a later stage. Talent Group comprises two Sao-Paulo-based agencies: Talent and QG. The group provides the full range of media and below-the-line communications services, offers training courses for sales teams and field staff, operates in incentive programs, promotion and activation, and is committed to developing its digital communications. - Finally, in late November, Publicis Groupe acquired three agencies in Romania. These long-standing affiliates (Publicis Roumanie, Focus Advertising and Publicis Events) will be merged into Grupul Publicis Communication Services Bucarest. The new entity will be a full-services company in communications, advertising, brand strategy, creation, sales promotion, events marketing and digital services.
The Groupe's acquisitions have been very focused in terms of business area and geographic region in order to meet customers' new needs, while devising the solutions expected by consumers and boosting the Groupe's growth.
A noteworthy event early in 2010 was the accelerated redemption, in January, of part of the Oceane 2018 issue still in circulation. According to the Oceane 2018 contract, all bond-holders could request early redemption of all or part of their Oceanes at a unit price of 45.19 euro. On January 18, 2010, 617,985 Oceanes were redeemed in this way for a total sum of 28 million euro.
The number of these Oceane bonds still in circulation after that date is 2,624,538, i.e. 14.9% of the original issue which totaled 17,624,521.
Furthermore, on January 8, 2010, following the authorization granted by the Combined Ordinary and Extraordinary General Meeting held on June 9, 2009, Publicis Groupe SA signed a contract with an accredited intermediary with a view to acquiring 2.7 million Publicis Groupe shares. The program was authorized for a period of eighteen months starting from June 9, 2009; i.e. until December 8, 2010. 2,487,959 shares have been acquired through this program.
On May 10, 2010, Publicis Groupe repurchased from Dentsu Inc a block of 7,500,000 of its own shares held by SEP Dentsu-Badinter, for a total price of 218 million euro, i.e. 29 euro per share. These shares were immediately canceled.
VI. 2011: Recent events
Publicis Groupe has announced its intention to purchase, through a public takeover bid, all the shares in Chemistry, an independent integrated communications agency, for a consideration of approximately 14.45 million pounds Sterling. Chemistry's Board of Directors recently recommended that its shareholders tender their shares at a price of 37p per share, to be paid in cash.
Chemistry is one of the UK's leading agencies, and is specialized in integrated marketing services, particularly in digital. Its offering includes advertising communications, strategic consulting and digital marketing, direct marketing and promotional marketing.
Chemistry's Board of Directors has recommended that its shareholders tender their shares at a price of 37p per share, to be paid in cash.
The start of the year has been very active in terms of new business gains.
Since January 1, the Groupe is proud to count ADP, C&A China, Carl Zeiss Sports Optic, FNAC, Guerlain, Lenovo, Pages Jaunes and Sonic among its new clients.
The market trends anticipated since late 2009 materialized in 2010, and were then confirmed by the sharp recovery of the advertising market in all regions in the second half of the year, and more notably during an exceptional last quarter.
In this more buoyant market, Publicis Groupe achieved excellent results thanks to its positioning in digital services and its ever-increasing exposure in high-growth countries, these two growth drivers already accounting for close to half the Groupe's revenue.
The Groupe intends to continue to roll out its now well-established strategy based on two components: digital services, which continue to grow strongly thanks to the social networks and mobility, and high-growth markets.
The fact that the merits of this strategy have been proven suggests the Groupe should continue to invest in digital services, taking care to accelerate this expansion outside the USA. Another priority is to expand in high-growth countries as the Groupe plans to double the size of its business in China, while reinforcing its positions in India and Latin America.
Thanks to a very good volume of business and strict cost control, the Groupe succeeded in ending the year with a very robust financial situation.
The very satisfactory level of new business wins in 2010 bears witness to the Groupe's dynamic approach and strong presence alongside its clients, thus confirming its ability to reach its market-share targets. All these factors authorize the Groupe to envisage growth in excess of the current market estimations while continuing to improve its operating margins.
In the medium term the Groupe's goal is to derive 35% of its revenue from digital activities and 30% from high-growth markets. Publicis Groupe intends to focus its actions so as to reach these targets both by internal growth and targeted acquisitions. Almost two-thirds of its revenue will then be generated in high-growth sectors or countries.
