Publicis Groupe reported net revenues grew 8.8 percent to $13.3B in 2021 due to robust growth in its data management, digital media, commerce and business transformation offerings.
CEO Arthur Sadoun noted organic revenues jumped 10 percent for 2021, which topped the three percent increase from pre-pandemic 2019.
He said Publicis Groupe “is emerging from the pandemic as a strong company and a better one,” and cited progress across its environmental, social and governance strategy.
The firm has rewarded “everybody who has been with us for the past 24 months” a bonus in recognition for their "outstanding efforts" during the worst of the pandemic.
The 35K staffers salaried staffers will receive an additional week’s pay.
Sadoun forecasted 2022 organic growth will fall in the four percent to five percent range.
