Publicis Groupe: 2012 Annual Results

The goals we have set ourselves are very reasonably ambitious, namely higher growth than market average in 2012, as well as a (moderate) improvement of our margin.

We have commenced 2013 with confidence and determination."

Publicis Groupe's Supervisory Board met on February 13, 2013, under the chairmanship of Elisabeth Badinter, to examine the annual accounts for 2012 presented by Maurice Lévy, Chairman of the Management Board.
