Dentsu’s international revenues rise but group profit falls

Dentsu’s US and South American operations provided a major fillip to its revenue and gross income in the nine months to 30 September, but gross income from domestic business declined by 2.4% and the group’s post-tax profit fell by 12.6% to ¥44.5 billion ($338 million).

Revenue growth was helped by the acquisition of Merkle in the autumn of 2016 and a further decline in the yen.  Gross income from the Americas increased by 45.6% during the period.
