WPP plc Announces Trading Results for the First Quarter of 2015; Provides Revenue Guidance for the Year 2015

WPP plc announced trading results for the first quarter of 2015. For the quarter, the company reported revenue was up 8.3% at £2.783 billion. Revenue in constant currency was up 7.4%, reflecting the slight currency tailwinds in the first quarter, principally reflecting the weakness of sterling against the US dollar, partly offset by the strength of sterling against the euro. On a like-for-like basis, excluding the impact of acquisitions and currency fluctuations, revenue was up 5.2%. Reported net sales were up 6.0%, up 5.0% in constant currency and up 2.5% like-for-like. As outlined in both the 2013 and 2014 preliminary announcements, due to the increasing scale of digital media purchases within the Group's media investment management businesses and of direct costs in data investment management, net sales is the more meaningful and accurate reflection of top line growth, although currently none of competitors report net sales. At the point-to-point with of March 31, 2015 versus 2014, net debt was at GBP 3.175 billion, up GBP 218 million compared to a year ago, reflecting improvements in the working capital, offset by higher spend over the last 12 months on share buybacks and acquisitions. So in terms of revenue growth, reported revenue growth was 8.3%, with like-for-like growth of 5.2%, 2.2% coming from acquisition and 0.9% coming from currency. On a reported basis, if it is a euro-reporting company, revenues would have grown almost 21%. And if it is a dollar-reporting company, revenues would have declined 1%, reflecting the relative strength of the currency. The company provided revenue guidance for the year 2015. For the year, the pattern of net sales growth in 2015 has started similarly to the final quarter of 2014, with both constant currency and like-for-like growth showing continuing improvement across all geographies and sectors. On a like-for-like basis, advertising and media investment management and branding & identity, healthcare and specialist communications (including direct, digital and interactive), were the strongest sectors, with data investment management showing significant improvement compared with the final quarter of 2014. A preliminary look at quarter one revised forecasts for the full year, again, indicates revenue growth and net sales growth up over 3%.
