Paris-based Publicis Groupe’s revenue was more than $1bn (£566m) for the quarter, down 4.3 per cent on last year.
Publicis didn’t break down revenue from its PR agencies – Publicis Dialog, Publicis Consultants, Manning Selvage & Lee and Rowland Communications.
Interpublic’s revenue was $1.4bn (£792m) for the quarter, a six per cent increase on the same period last year, although net losses almost doubled to $16.9m (£9.57m).
IPG’s PR firms, led by Weber Shandwick, had their best quarter in two years based on revenue, CEO David Bell said.
Omnicom’s PR agencies – which include Fleishman-Hillard – accounted for almost 11 per cent of revenues.
