According to one source close to the firm, the agency has already been
sold, although partner Jack Agnew denied that report. ’It’s premature to
say the deal is done,’ said Agnew.
ACM admitted several weeks ago (PRWeek, July 26) that it had received an
offer within the past year, and conceded last week that it is in serious
talks with one suitor. However, Agnew said both agencies have pledged
not to discuss a deal until a decision is made.
While ACM would not disclose what agencies have extended offers, several
international firms lack a Boston presence, including Ruder Finn, Cohn &
Wolfe and Rowland Worldwide. RF had admitted to talking to several
Boston firms, although chairman of the executive committee Peter Finn
has not commented on the agency’s interest in ACM.
