Dentsu’s profit falls by 14.4% despite revenue growth

Dentsu improved its gross income by 6.3% in 2018 but its post-tax profit for the year fell by 14.4% to $810 million.

The disproportionate increase in operating costs was attributed by the company to “planned investments in the working environment reforms” in Japan and to a slowdown in revenue elsewhere towards the end of the year.
