Shares in Publicis slide by as much as 14% after 4Q disappoints

--Competitor WPP's stock is also hit by Publicis miss, falling as much as 8%

--Deutsche Bank cuts Publicis rating to hold from buy

Shares in Publicis Groupe SA (PUB.FR) dropped Thursday after the company reported earnings that analysts described as lackluster, with negative news spilling over to one of its competitors.

At 0924GMT, shares in Publicis traded 12% lower at EUR48.57 after losing as much as 14% in early trading. Its competitor WPP PLC (WPP.LN) was down 6% at GBP8.23 after shedding as much as 8%.

The French advertising group said Wednesday that a higher-than-expected retreat in traditional ad spending had affected business by 150 million euros ($171.3 million) in 2018. The majority of these clients are U.S.-based consumer-goods companies.

Analysts at Citi said Publicis missed revenue consensus but was ahead in operating profit.

"Publicis has done it again, and not in a good way," they said in a note. "As with 1H18, the group has put together a miss on organic revenue and a handsome beat on margins and earnings. Although we expect consensus earnings to move up by 3% to 5% on a combination of a higher profit base/margin and the impact of the EUR400 million buyback, we would nevertheless expect the shares to trade down as what Publicis gains on [earnings per share] is lost on the multiple."

Separately, Deutsche Bank analysts said the miss in the fourth quarter was greater than they had expected, and that they were looking "for a broad sign that growth was accelerating from the nine-month rate of 0.2%, driven by account wins and a shift to providing higher value services."

"However, the scale of the miss in 4Q took us by surprise, with attrition among existing accounts negating new business gains," they said.

They said the trend seemed set to continue into the first quarter of 2019, and moved the rating on the stock to hold from buy.

"We think the weak operating environment and further evidence of the challenges of turning around agency conglomerates will weigh on Publicis and its peer, WPP," they said.

WPP PLC shares tumbled 13% Thursday after the company logged its worst year since the financial crisis and forecast no growth for 2018, a further sign of the heavy toll of advertising's digital revolution.

The world's largest ad company said it is setting budgets this year on the assumption that both revenue and net sales will be flat. For 2017, net sales were down 0.9% on a like-for-like basis, against a forecast they would be "broadly flat."

The company also said it is simplifying its unwieldy structure, accelerating its development from a group of individual companies to a "cohesive global team."

Like other big ad firms, WPP is grappling with the slowest revenue growth since the financial crisis as previously big-spending consumer-goods companies keep a tight lid on marketing budgets.

That slowdown in growth has pressured agency holding companies to revamp an organizational structure that is out of step with a digital age that favors relentless consumer targeting over the internet rather than traditional print and television ads.

"There are two things going on: technological change, and the second is short term pressures, whether it be zero-based budgeting, activists or private equity," Mr. Sorrell said in an interview with The Wall Street Journal.

"We're clear on the destination," Mr. Sorrell said. "The changes that are taking place are pushing us to do it faster."

Big ad firms built their businesses over the years by acquiring different specialists with their own ways of working and separate finances. Now there has been a move across the industry to align the different agencies closer together to allow clients to better access resources across their groups and cut costs. WPP executives often refer to its approach as "horizontality."

The company, which owns creative and media agencies such as J. Walter Thompson and Ogilvy & Mather, reported a 1.3% decline in fourth-quarter organic net sales, a closely watched metric in the industry that excludes currency effects and acquisitions. That growth rate was below analysts' expectations of a roughly 0.7% rise.

In the fourth quarter, organic net sales were down 3.4% in North America, declined 2.6% in Western Continental Europe and dropped 3% in Asia Pacific. The bright spot was the U.K., which rose 9.1%.

WPP's closest competitors have been facing similar headwinds. France's Publicis Groupe SA posted organic growth of just 0.8% last year, while Omnicom Group Inc. posted lackluster fourth-quarter revenue, blaming a pullback by marketers on project work, losses at some independent-branded agencies and softness in its programmatic business.

Omnicom's longtime CEO, John Wren, said he expects the company to post softer organic growth this year compared with 2017 because of challenges in the marketplace like changes in technology, shareholder activism and new competitors.

The overall outlook for Madison Avenue remains cloudy. Ad companies are dealing with major slowdowns in industries that they have long relied upon for growth, such as consumer-goods giants and retailers. Those sectors are putting additional pressure on ad firms to reduce the fees they pay for services.

The slowdown in advertising spend has affected agency sector organic growth, which has slowed from 4.5% in 2015 to 1.9% in 2016 and to an expected 1.1% in 2017, UBS analysts wrote in a note this week.

In their note, the analysts cited a long list of challenges that the sector is facing, including marketers experiencing slower growth, companies continuing to cut the fees they pay agencies, and growing competition from consulting firms. Another challenge has been brands cracking down on nontransparent practices in the ad-buying sector, which industry observers say has squeezed holding company margins.

If the £380,000 is converted at 0.09p this equates to 422m shares. Add this to 743m shares already in issue makes 1.165m . If this is to represent 64% of the new total equity a further 655m shares need to be issued. To raise £200,000 minimum means a price of a fraction over 0.03p.

Knigel - there is a caveat. The caveat is what level will the dirs. convert their warrants + prefs. If they did it at 0.90p AFTER the capital reorganisation then £380k would = 68.4% and 36% which is clearly over 100% so I reckon it will be done higher - but that then leaves ADS shareholders with virtually nothing. (The caveat will dictate that)

£380k worth of pref warrants on the same scale as £200k for 36% equates to 68.4% which is above 100% - this leads me to believe that pref/warrant value conversions will be @ a higher level than 0.90p -

However - whatever value is left in ADS in its current state looks fairly minimal. Unless someone else can offer another explanation -

The prefs / warrant have taken any value left here once the capital is reorganised hence I will take a small tax loss (which will be useful) for the coming year -

King lost me now - ADS MK is £1.3m - operating profit £98k hardly valuations

My interest is potential ADS "private client" has proved a strong back bone allowing the shop time to restructure the "corporate client" business. Turnover in corporates is now rapidly increasing - the last 6 months performance beat the whole of the previous year etc - if that rate continues ADS could show a £250 / £300k operating profit for the finals

£1.3m MK very cheap - reason why I hold - share price could double easily once a broker starts following the stock

No wonder there is possible interest from PMR
