Revenue is defined as revenue generated by all regions excluding the region in which your agency is headquartered. 4% decrease How has international staffing changed from one year ago? 7% decrease Did performance meet or exceed expectations, or not? Please explain why. What external factors such as the war in Iraq, political issues, cultural issues, affected performance? It is important to remember that we are primarily a specialist financial and corporate PR agency and therefore our revenues are directly affected by levels of global corporate activity. 2003 was definitely a year of two halves for us with the first half affected by global markets' reaction to the war in Iraq which meant that companies carried out fewer transactions and spent less on corporate positioning. However, in the second half confidence began to grow and so did spend. What business have you won, or lost, in the past year due to a global consolidation of PR business by the client? Please list: We do not see this as an issue as yet although we are seeing an increasing number of clients who are seeking to use the same agency to communicate to their global shareholder base. What regions are performing best right now and why? What regions are under-performing? Citigate has a leading presence in all key financial markets worldwide. We have already experienced encouraging signs of corporate activity picking up across the US and Europe. The Far East and Asia are major growth regions right now and Incepta is well positioned there with our agencies picking up a significant number of the key briefs, including the Housing Authority (retail and car parking facilities) and the Airport Authority in Hong Kong. What region do you plan to invest more resources in this year than you did one year ago and why? What region are you decreasing investment in and why? Not supplied What new region/country will you consider entering this year and why? Are you considering international acquisitions or organic growth? None, as we already have representation in all the major markets Please describe some of the pro bono activities that you undertake internationally, or other ways that your firm connects with the international regions in which you operate.
