    A lot of work and effort has gone into this transaction over the last 8 or so months – and we would like to thank you all for the effort in getting to this point. We could not have done it without your support.

    I’d like to thank Simon and your extended team for all your hard work and dedication to enable us to complete the acquisition deal with Saatchi/Publicis Groupe. As we discussed on Friday night it has been a long time in the making with a number of false starts. But it is completed and signed and your wise counsel and advice has been significant in helping us achieve this deal.
