Havas buys shares in Creston: Interpublic stock also leaps

Havas has acquired a 5% shareholding in the UK listed group Creston, just as all the industry talk had been about a possible marriage between Havas and Interpublic.

And no sooner had Creston disclosed the Havas investment than Interpublic became the focus of unattributed share buying too, prompting the statement: “We are aware of the activity in our stock today. It is our policy not to comment on market rumours or speculation.”
