New York City comptroller John Liu has renewed a previous call for Omnicom Group and Publicis Groupe to disclose the numbers of minorities and women in their ranks, amid the planned merger of the two holding companies.

Liu justified the call by noting that New York City pension funds hold 653,928 shares of Omnicom stock and 175,786 shares of Publicis Groupe stock. Collectively those shares represent a combined value of $61 million, Liu added, in a letter he sent to Omnicom chairman Bruce Crawford and Publicis Groupe CEO Maurice Lévy.
