Ipsos sees dip in Q3 revenues

Europe Financials

FRANCE — Ipsos recorded a 3.7% increase in revenue to €428m during the third quarter of 2015, but at constant scope and exchange rates, this equalled a fall of 2.2%.

For the first nine months of 2015, the company’s revenues grew by 7.9% to €1.3bn, with currency effects accounting for 8.6%. The effect of change in scope was 0.3%, meaning that at constant scope and exchange rates, revenues for the year-to-date were down 1%.

By business line, Ipsos Connect — the result of the merger between media measurement and advertising effectiveness businesses Ipsos ASI and Ipsos MediaCT — has so far had a negative impact on financials, but positive effects are expected from it in coming years.

Ipsos Loyalty will reportedly end the year showing growth, Ipsos Marketing is expected to do better than the Group average, and Ipsos Public Affairs is also experiencing a good year.
