WPP has attracted at least five of the world's biggest private equity firms into an auction for a majority stake in its data analytics unit Kantar ahead of a deadline for indicative bids on Apr. 17, sources told Reuters. U.S. private equity funds Bain Capital and Apollo are putting the finishing touches to their rival bids and will compete with European funds CVC Capital Partners, Permira and Apax. The bidding field includes two other private equity investors, one of the sources said, without naming them.
Three of the world’s largest private equity groups have pulled out of the auction to acquire a majority stake in WPP’s market research arm due to concerns over the threat of technology giants to its business model and the seller’s high-expectations on pricing.

A series of buyout funds including U.S. firms Advent and Blackstone are in talks with advertising group WPP to explore bids for a majority stake in its data analytics unit Kantar, four sources familiar with the matter told Reuters. The sale, led by Goldman Sachs, may value Kantar at up to 3.5 billion pounds, but some private equity investors are fretting over the decline in profits and revenues that the business has suffered in recent years. Hellman & Friedman and CVC Capital Partners are also working on the deal, the sources said, while industry players have so far shied away from the process.
Former WPP chief Sir Martin Sorrell today declared his new digital-only business was in the “sweet spot” of the advertising world as the companies he has bought reported surging revenues. Sir Martin left WPP under a cloud last year but launched a start-up focusing solely on online ads, buying content producer MediaMonks and automated “programmatic” ad-space buying firm MightyHive. Sir Martin said the digital market was growing at 20-30% while the market for the big holding companies such as WPP, Publicis and others was only growing at 2-3%.
WPP PLC said it would pay its former Chief Executive Martin Sorrell shares worth more than 2 million pounds, or $2.65 million, as part of his long-term bonus, despite having threatened to withhold the payment following his departure from the firm. The decline of WPP’s shares over the past two years left Mr. Sorrell with about a third of the maximum payment granted under the company’s long-term bonus program. The decision to pay Mr. Sorrell marks a potential detente in the feud between the high-profile ad executive and the company he founded decades ago, building it into an advertising behemoth.
