The company also reported its Q4 results, with organic growth coming in even higher at 12.5 percent. Revenue was up 23 percent for the quarter to €1.56 billion (nearly $2.13 billion).

The earnings release attributed a good deal of the company’s success to the digital space.

There was also growth across all regions, with North America posting 9.9 percent organic growth.
In a statement, Publicis CEO and chairman Maurice Lévy said:
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.
