Message from Maurice Lévy, Chairman and CEO of Publicis Groupe:

"2012 was to be the year of recovery, but turned out to be difficult, uncertain and disappointing as regards growth and employment, especially in Europe. Yet it was a record year for Publicis Groupe in terms of revenue, margin, income and the strength of its balance sheet.

The global advertising market had been expected to grow by 4.7%, but actual growth will fell below the 3% mark with advertising income from Euro 2012 and the London Olympics well below expectations.

We owe our good performance to the trust our clients have in us, but also to the talent, passion and outstanding professionalism of our people whose agility and speed of response enabled us to bring our clients original, innovative and creative solutions.  I would like to express my thanks to our clients and employees, and tell the latter how proud I am of what they have accomplished.
