riviera1069: From HL todayWPP is one of the world's leading marketing business' and makes lots of its money from traditional marketing agency work. To give an idea of scale, as at April last year, the giant employed over 106,000 people across 112 countries. Its clients include 348 members of the Fortune Global 500 and 69 companies from the FTSE100.But giants feel pain too, and the pandemic took a hammer blow to profits. Operating profit of £1.3bn in 2019 swung to a £2.3bn loss for the last financial year. That reflects the revenue decline as blue-chip clients reined in marketing spending. WPP was forced to recognise some of its assets were simply worth less than they had once been.Its huge size is both WPP's biggest asset, and biggest challenge. We'll go with the difficult stuff first.Pre-pandemic, WPP was grappling with the changing face of marketing – namely the rapid increase in demand for digital analytics and platforms. And the group's sprawling size means progress was slow and messy. This risk of losing market share will still exist when the pandemic's over.But the pandemic has actually injected some hope into the mix. It's kickstarted more extreme efforts to refocus the business and streamline. The accelerated shift to online shopping also means e-commerce advertising is a huge opportunity – WPP is expecting double digit ecommerce growth in all but one region for 2021.We're also intrigued by the group's assertion that demand for its PR and reputation products are on the up. The current climate of cancel-culture and increased environmental and social pressures, means this could be a long-term growth opportunity.A hoard of hefty existing clients, including HSBC and Unilever, gives the group a good base on which to build. Especially as these large customers tend to change direction slowly, giving the group a reasonably sticky customer base. A much healthier balance sheet – net debt (readily available assets minus debt) of £0.7bn is the lowest it's been since 2004 – also gives the group some breathing room to get its house in order.Overall, WPP has a genuine opportunity to come out of the pandemic thriving. Its existing scale and accelerated transformation efforts means it has all the right tools to execute its so called "pivot to digital". But the speed of that spin is what's crucial – take too long and new business wins will fatally falter.For now, analysts predict a 3.2% yield over the next 12 months, so investors are being paid for their patience. Remember, yields are variable and are not a reliable indicator of future income

nortic 007: WPP Shares Climb as It Says the Worst of the Crisis Is Likely OverSource: Dow Jones NewsBy Alexandra Bruell WPP PLC shares jumped Thursday after the ad holding company reinstated its dividend and said the impact of the coronavirus crisis in the second quarter wasn't as bad as it had feared.WPP, which owns GroupM and VMLY&R, reported global revenue of GBP2.3 billion ($3 billion) in the second quarter. Like-for-like revenue, which strips out the effects of acquisitions and disposals, fell 15% in the quarter. Like-for-like revenue was down just under 10% in the U.S., compared with declines of over 23% in the U.K. and India."We had a resilient performance in a challenging environment," WPP Chief Executive Officer Mark Read said on an earnings call. "The second quarter was slightly better than we had expected, and significantly better than some of the worst-case scenarios we had looked at back in March."WPP restarted its dividend program with an interim payment of 10 pence a share. The company had suspended dividend payments and withdrew its financial guidance for the year in March, citing the uncertainty caused by the pandemic.WPP said it is cautiously optimistic that the worst of the crisis is over."Assuming there is no second wave nor major lockdowns, the second quarter is expected to be the toughest period of the year, although we remain cautious on the speed of recovery," Mr. Read said in a statement.Shares in WPP were up 6% at $43.75 in morning U.S. trade.For the entire first half, profit before tax was down 44% at GBP276 million. Diluted earnings per share were down 45% at 15.4 pence. Goodwill impairments and other write-downs for the first half totaled GBP2.74 billion, driven by impairments at agencies Wunderman Thompson and VMLY&R, as Covid-19 led to higher discount rates used to value future cash flows, a lower profit base in 2020 and a lower industry growth rate, the company said.WPP won a significant amount of business in the first half, including work from Intel Corp., HSBC Holdings PLC and Unilever in China, Mr. Read said.GroupM underperformed other parts of WPP's business as many large advertisers reduced their media spending in the quarter. Compared with public-relations firms, for example, the ad-buying group's revenue is highly dependent on how much clients spend on media.Before the pandemic, WPP had embarked on a three-year turnaround plan after taking large account losses and concluding that the business had become unwieldy. The company merged a number of agencies and completed the sale of 60% of data unit Kantar last year.Write to Alexandra Bruell at (END) Dow Jones NewswiresAugust 27, 2020 12:07 ET (16:07 GMT)Copyright (c) 2020 Dow Jones & Company, Inc.
