    Ousted WPP Boss Sorrell Is Out for ‘Revenge’ With New Venture

    After resigning from the world’s largest advertising group WPP Plc in April following allegations of misconduct, Sorrell said his new venture S4 Capital Plc intends to challenge the company he founded three decades ago. “The best form of revenge would be building a significant and successful new-era, new-format, new-approach agency,” Sorrell said at a Campaign magazine breakfast event in London, after criticizing WPP’s handling of the misconduct probe that led to his resignation. Sorrell has denied the misconduct allegations and questioned strategic decisions at WPP since he left.

    [$$] WPP Dives After World's No. 1 Ad Group Cuts Guidance

    Like much of the advertising world, WPP is wrestling with a shift to digital ads from print and TV, as well as tighter spending by clients with ad agencies and demand for new services such as data analytics. The British company, which owns agencies including J. Walter Thompson and Group M, said like-for-like net sales—a key measure of its operating performance—fell 1.5% for the quarter ended Sept. 30. Mr. Read had nudged up full-year net sales guidance last month only to lower it again Thursday, saying the measure would fall as much as 1%, rather than rise modestly.

Predecessor Martin Sorrell left him with a business that’s been far slower than competitors to adapt to the new realities of the ad world, where most new dollars are spent with Facebook Inc. and Google. Clients also want a business that’s better suited to their needs. WPP, with its sprawl of ad agencies, media-buying companies, marketers and public relations firms doesn’t yet seem as able as its peers to offer something coherent.

    WPP Shares Plunge To Six-Year Low After Ad Giant Slashes Profit Outlook

    shares fell to a six-year low Thursday after it slashed its full-year profit outlook following a dismal third quarter as the world's biggest advertising group attempts to regroup following the ouster of its founder and former CEO Sir Martin Sorrell. WPP said full year operating margins would slide 100 basis points to 1.5% as net sales decline by 1% from 2017 following the loss of big-brand clients such as Ford Motor Co. F earlier this year. WPP also said long-serving finance direction Paul Richardson would step down and that the group would look to the sale of a stake in data analytics group Kantar while retrenching its merger ambitions in order to focus on organic growth.
