Omnicom Group Inc. OMC is scheduled to report third-quarter 2021 results on Oct 19, after the bell.

The company has an impressive earnings surprise history. It surpassed the Zacks Consensus Estimate in all of the trailing four quarters, delivering an earnings surprise of 12.2%, on average.

Q3 Expectations

The Zacks Consensus Estimate for revenues is pegged at $3.41 billion, indicating 6.5% growth from the year-ago quarter’s actual figure. The top line is expected to predominantly reflect the impact of increase in organic revenues as a result of the revival in business activities from the coronavirus-induced lows. Favorable foreign-exchange movements are also expected to have positively impacted the top line.

The Zacks Consensus Estimate for earnings is pegged at $1.37 per share and calls for year-over-year increase of 13.2%, expectedly attributable to increase in operating profit. Prudent management of discretionary addressable spend cost categories and benefits from repositioning actions taken back in the second quarter of 2020 are likely to have benefited the company’s operating performance in the to-be-reported quarter.
