Publicis Groupe

Publicis Groupe, which will release its first-quarter financials on April 23, has decided not to issue guidance "due to the "uncertain, volatile and unprecedented economic situation."

Noting the COVID-19 pandemic has been the "source of great suffering," which "has forced a third of the global population to restrict its movements," CEO Arthur Sadoun said its "difficult to accurately predict the evolution of advertising and marketing spend."

He did say revenues at the end of February were in line with Publicis' 2020 roadmap.
