Moody's Investors Service ("Moody's") has today changed to negative from stable the outlook on the ratings of Publicis Groupe S.A. ("Publicis" or "the company"). Concurrently, Moody's has affirmed the Baa2 issuer and instrument ratings on the senior unsecured notes issued by Publicis.

Epsilon collects data including transactions, location and web activity, and is less exposed to consumer-goods companies, Publicis Chief Executive Officer Arthur Sadoun said on a call with analysts on Monday.
