    [$$] WPP’s Struggles in North America Send Shares Lower

    Shares in WPP PLC dropped Tuesday as the ad industry’s upheaval took a heavy toll on the world’s largest advertising company, underscoring the challenges facing new chief executive Mark Read. The advertising giant’s second-quarter results showed a weak performance in North America as the company’s stable of creative agencies—from J. Walter Thompson, Ogilvy & Mather and Young & Rubicam—struggled. Like-for-like net sales—a figure closely watched by analysts to measure the company’s underlying performance—dropped 3.3% in North America over a three-month period ending June 30.

    [$$] Ad Giant WPP Taps Company Veteran Mark Read for CEO

In an interview, Mr. Read said he doesn’t plan to merge or sell any of WPP’s marquee creative agencies, such as Young & Rubicam and J. Walter Thompson, focusing instead on how to make them work more closely with the company’s stable of digital-advertising and data-science firms.
