HAVAS Q1 Revenue Increases - Quick Facts

HAVAS (HAVSF.PK) said its revenue for the first quarter rose 7.2% to 387 million euros from 361 million euros in the year-ago quarter. Growth at constant exchange rates was 5.3%.

David Jones, Global CEO Havas, stated, "The Group achieved good growth in the first quarter of 2012, despite a high comparative benchmark. A particular highlight was the strong performance in France given what remains an uncertain economic environment in Europe. North America continued its performance in line with the 4(th) quarter of 2011 and the very strong growth in the emerging markets was maintained with double digit growth in Asia Pacific and Latin America. All disciplines contributed to our performance including a continued acceleration in digital. These results are an endorsement of the relevance of our business model, based on putting digital at the core of all our activities."

A recommendation to revise the British manufacturing growth eased further in August to its lowest level in 14 months as output and demand increased at slower rates, survey results from Markit Economics showed Monday. The Markit/CIPS Purchasing Managers' Index dropped to 52.5 from a revised 54.8 in July. Economists had expected the score to fall to 55.1 from July's original figure of 55.4. Consumers spent less in July than in the previous month, a surprise retreat that complicates the prevailing belief that the U.S. economic situation is improving. Along with the unexpected drop in spending, government figures released on Friday showed that incomes rose at a slower pace in July than in the previous month.
