By Joe Ciarallo Comment


Publicis Groupe, owner of global PR network MS&L Group, reported second quarter organic growth of slightly more than 7 percent today.

The company also said that 47% of first half of 2010 revenue came from its specialized agencies and marketing services division, of which MS&L Group is a part.

“Without lapsing into the euphoria that these halfyear results for our Groupe might warrant, I remain firmly convinced that Publicis Groupe will succeed in outperforming the market in terms of both growth and margin,” said Publicis CEO Maurice Levy in a statement.

In a press release, MS&L Group highlighted key client wins including What’s on (India), World Gold Council (China), Central agency for national insurance (France) and National Defense Ministry (France). No key wins were listed for the United States. Overall, Publicis said it added $2.1 billion in net new business during the first half of 2010.
