Interpublic Group of Companies (IPG) - statistics & facts
Headquartered in New York City, the Interpublic Group of Companies (IPG) is one of the world’s “big five” advertising companies – alongside other heavy-hitters such as WPP, Omnicom Group, Dentsu, and Publicis. In 2021, IPG maintained its spot as the fifth-largest advertising agency group worldwide, based on the revenue generated that year. Additionally, IPG’s McCann ad agency network ranked fifth among leading ad agencies in the United States, while IPG-owned Universal McCann (UM) made the top 10 of the most effective media agencies both in Europe and the Asia Pacific.
Revenue surge slightly damped by decreased tech spending
IPG’s global revenue increased by seven percent in 2022. At the same time, the company’s net income slightly decreased, following a post-pandemic surge the previous year. Over the past decade, the company’s total assets (192541) strongly developed, peaking at a net worth of almost 20 billion dollars in 2021. IPG’s revenue has been growing at a slightly slower pace between the end of 2022 and the first quarter of 2023, amid decreased spending among tech companies in the U.S.
On top of that, IPG’s profitability reached a new high, with a reported earnings per share (EPS) ratio of 2.39 U.S. dollars per share that same year.
Regional operations, global restructuring
With global operations spread across more than 90 operating units, IPG’s leading networks included companies like FCB, IPG Mediabrands, McCann Worldgroup, MullenLowe Group, and Marketing Specialists. The United States was IPG’s largest market in 2022, with Asia Pacific and Continental Europe nabbing second and third place. As of the second quarter of 2022, IPG enjoyed its highest revenue growth in Latin America, closely followed by the U.S. and Continental Europe.
In April 2022, the company announced the restructuring of its holdings in three new reporting segments - media, data, and engagement solutions (MD&E), integrated advertising and creativity led solutions (IA&C), and specialized communications and experiential solutions (SC&E).
Keeping up with trends, exploring AI, striving towards sustainability goals
Aside from an increasingly diffused international footprint and robust financial growth, IPG has been receiving praise in the realms of innovation and enterprise. The company was awarded the bronze medal for the most creative media holding groups worldwide in 2022, following fellow big fivers WPP and Omnicom Group. In March 2023, IPG’s public relations agency Golin unveiled an artificial intelligence (AI) incubator called SPARK, a model designed to explore AI platforms including ChatGPT and Midjourney as a starting point for creative ideation in the Asia Pacific region. Furthermore, IPG has announced a commitment to addressing environmental, social, and governance concerns. The company has formally affiliated with The Climate Pledge, a commitment to attaining net-zero carbon across the advertising business by 2040, and has pledged to source 100 percent renewable electricity for its operations by 2030.
