Me too but i don't think it will be what i am hoping for!!! Bluefocus make a further acquisition "Peter Mao, president of BlueFocus Communication, said acquisitions are at the centre of its business strategy." 28/03/2014 Fri 17:46 in Hong Kongby Jennifer Chan BlueFocus takes full ownership of Metta Metta Communications has been acquired by BlueFocus Communication Group, a China-based ad group offering branding, digital and public relations services. In a statement on its website, BlueFocus said it paid HK$178 million for full equity ownership of Metta. Andrew Lee, founder of Metta Communications, told Marketing BlueFocus has been reaching out to Metta for more than a year, among many other firms. "BlueFocus runs quality PR events but its advertising sector can be strengthened further," said Lee, who added the cooperation between Metta and BlueFocus was significant for both parties. "Our business model, markets and client resource will be an excellent coordination. Through the new partnership, we will jointly provide more quality communication services to clients and business opportunity." He added that stretching out to the mainland would be "one option" looking ahead. Peter Mao, president of BlueFocus Communication, said acquisitions are at the centre of its business strategy. BlueFocus Communication Group is split into five business units including advertising, PR, event management and digital marketing. The group is looking to boost revenues in its advertising unit by 40% and more into the near future. Metta's expertise in creative and strategic planning could greatly complement the group's performance, Mao added. hxxp://www.marketing-interactive.com/bluefocus-takes-ownership-metta/

Yes TOM111 you are more than likely correct - but why not nail their flag to the mast now - they have to report by the end of April so why not the 30th (it's not a Friday!!). Additionally in the Chadlington interview published above this comment seems odd " I ask Chadlington how the merger was going and he batted me away – Huntsworth's results are due in April." - my interpretation being that the timing of the results is linked in some way to China and/or Bluefocus - could just be contract awards in China. Anyway we will find out in a months time so no long now!!!

Hutsworth IR confirmed to me last week final results end of April - having been in here for 7/8 years it is a little strange and inconsistent with previous policy/process that they still have not committed to a date - for some reason the date/timing of the next announcement appears to be critical/sensitive. Given the improving economy,improving IPO market for Citigate,peers announcing good results,number of high profile/significant appointments and the number of vacancies being advertised within the group i can only assume that any significant news would be positive. Can't help but think it is related to China/Asia Pacific/Bluefocus - maybe that is me just being hopeful!!! I believe Bluefocus results due out 15th April maybe that will give us a steer!

Intersesting recent interview (6th March 2014) with Chadlington - it does appear that for whatever reason we will not be getting an update until April Challenges of China Huntsworth's merger with Oscar Yhao's Blue Focus seemed to reinvigorate the group. Strategically, it's difficult to argue that this merger is anything other than a shrewd move. I ask Chadlington how the merger was going and he batted me away – Huntsworth's results are due in April. I ask him whether this could ever be repeated: "We're doing it differently this time around. We've got many more start-up offices now. We've got 1,800 people, we're doing $350m in fees and the business feels like it's in a very strong place – having had a difficult couple of years, because 60 per cent of our business was in Europe."

Website has now been updated with Year End Results date TBD - the hiring of staff particularly in Asia Pacific and particularly with a "digital" background appears to continue at pace - can't help but assume that at least some of these hires are Oscar Zhaos troops and with him being 44 and Chadlington in his 70s surely that has to be his (Chadlingtons) exit strategy???
