sparks & honey Takes Its Proprietary Culture Briefings Live for the First Time

The Agency Will Now Deliver Its Daily Dose of Culture and Dynamic Discussion on Trends To a Live Audience Through Facebook

NEW YORK, NY — (Marketwired) — 07/26/17 — sparks & honey, a New York-based agency part of the DAS Group of Companies, announced today the official launch of its Live Culture Briefings, an extension of the agency’s daily discussion of trends, which helps the team to identify patterns across industries and culture. Known for synchronizing brands with culture, this proprietary practice has become a cornerstone of the agency’s unique, real-time trend tracking process. This launch will now expose a global audience to the way the agency exercises its cultural muscles every day; offering a fast paced view into the first 20 minutes of the hour-long briefing through Facebook Live. 

In 2016, sparks & honey welcomed over 5,000 guests to participate in briefings at their headquarters in New York City, from astronauts and scientists to CEOs, students and celebrities, plus countless other renowned thinkers. The daily sessions are fueled by signals that are collected through the agency’s trademarked cultural intelligence system, Q. Coupled with data sciences and human insights from the agency’s global network of scouts and one-of-a-kind Influencer Advisory Board, a brain trust of niche, industry experts across 33 sectors. In each briefing, the team and their guests examine 30 to 40 trending signals ranging from fast culture, such as viral videos and memes, to slow culture, such as patents and long-term innovation, and ultimately connect each trend to sparks & honey’s proprietary taxonomy of trends, the Elements of Culture. 

“Our Live Daily Culture Briefing is a snapshot of what the sparks & honey team does every single day, a pattern recognition exercise that blends structured data with human insights. This new, 20-minute live conversation is part of a much larger system that can steer any business, from a small startup to a Fortune 500 brand, toward a preferred future, new business model or relevant marketing communications,” said Terry Young, Founder and CEO of sparks & honey. “The fact that we’re now opening up this one-of-a-kind experience, that was once limited to our agency and a select group of guests, is the next step in our becoming a truly ‘open agency’.” 

For the last five years, sparks & honey’s open agency philosophy has been about bringing the outside in, a belief that grounds all the work it does for its high profile list of clients. The daily briefings act as a work session for the team to connect trending signals and patterns to clients’ work streams and cultural foresight projects, including Culture Forecast reports, which unpack culture around specific trending topics. 

“With the live streaming of the Daily Culture Briefing, clients, partners and curious individuals alike can now tune-in from anywhere to stay informed on the changes in culture that are shaping our world — from new product launches and trending ideas to technology developments, design philosophies and much more,” said Rita Rodriguez, Executive Vice President, Omnicom. 

The Live Daily Culture Briefings will be recorded at sparks & honey headquarters in New York City each Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, and can be viewed from 12 PM to 12:20 PM ET via Facebook Live at www.facebook.com/sparksandhoney. sparks & honey will also continue to host guests in-house on Mondays and Friday for full length briefings.

For the second quarter of 2017, our income tax rate was 32.0% compared to 32.5% for the same period in 2016.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We use certain non-GAAP financial measures in describing our performance. We use EBITA (defined as earnings before interest, taxes and amortization of intangibles) and EBITA margin (defined as EBITA divided by revenue) as additional operating performance measures, which exclude the non-cash amortization expense of intangible assets (primarily consisting of amortization arising from acquisitions). Accordingly, we believe they are useful measures for investors to evaluate the performance of our businesses. The financial tables at the end of this document reconcile the GAAP financial measure of net income to EBITA for the periods presented.

For the second quarter of 2017, EBITA increased $3.7 million, or 0.6%, to $594.0 million from $590.3 million in the second quarter of 2016.  Our EBITA margin increased to 15.7% for the second quarter of 2017 versus 15.2% in the second quarter of 2016.

For the six months ended June 30, 2017, EBITA increased 2.3%, or $23.7 million, to $1,034.4 million from $1,010.7 million for the same period in 2016. Our EBITA margin for the six months ended June 30, 2017 increased to 14.0% versus 13.7% for the same period in 2016.

Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information presented in compliance with U.S. GAAP. Non-GAAP financial measures reported by us may not be comparable to similarly titled amounts reported by other companies.

Definitions – Components of Revenue Change

We use certain terms in describing the components of the change in revenue above.

Foreign exchange rate impact: calculated by translating the current period’s local currency revenue using the prior period average exchange rates to derive current period constant currency revenue. The foreign exchange rate impact is the difference between the current period revenue in U.S. Dollars and the current period constant currency revenue.

Acquisition revenue, net of disposition revenue: Acquisition revenue is calculated as if the acquisition occurred twelve months prior to the acquisition date by aggregating the comparable prior period revenue of acquisitions through the acquisition date. As a result, acquisition revenue excludes the positive or negative difference between our current period revenue subsequent to the acquisition date and the comparable prior period revenue and the positive or negative growth after the acquisition date is attributed to organic growth. Disposition revenue is calculated as if the disposition occurred twelve months prior to the disposition date by aggregating the comparable prior period revenue of disposals through the disposition date. The acquisition revenue and disposition revenue amounts are netted in the presentation above.

Organic growth: calculated by subtracting the foreign exchange rate impact component and the acquisition revenue, net of disposition revenue component from total revenue growth.

The larger tax deduction is primarily due to the increase in the intrinsic value of these awards that resulted from an increase in the price of our common stock since the grant date of the awards.

Gracia Martore Joins Omnicom’s Board of Directors

NEW YORK, July 18, 2017—The Board of Directors of Omnicom Group Inc. (NYSE: OMC) today announced the appointment of Gracia Martore as an independent director, effective immediately. Ms. Martore recently retired as President and CEO of TEGNA Inc. (NYSE:TGNA), formerly known as Gannett Co.

 Ms. Martore’s appointment expands the Board to 13 directors, 11 of whom are independent. She will be a member of the audit committee.

 “We conducted an exhaustive search for someone who would further strengthen our board’s breadth of talent and background, and we are delighted to have identified such an outstanding leader,” said Bruce Crawford, Chairman of the Omnicom Board of Directors. “Gracia’s expertise in business transformation, as well as running a leading media company, will be of great benefit to Omnicom.”

 Ms. Martore, 65, served as CEO, TEGNA Inc., the nation’s largest local media company since 2011. She stepped down last May as part of the company’s spin off of Cars.com, the top online destination for the digital automotive marketplace. Ms. Martore held various leadership roles over her 30-year career at both TEGNA and the Gannett Company, including Chief Financial Officer before being named CEO. Prior to joining Gannett, she worked for 12 years in the banking industry.

 Ms. Martore serves on the Boards of Directors of The Associated Press, FM Global, United Rentals and WestRock Company. Ms. Martore is a graduate of Wellesley College where she was a Wellesley Scholar. She is also a member of Wellesley College’s Board of Trustees.

 Ms. Martore now joins Debbie Kissire and Valerie Williams who have been appointed to the Board since the Company began its Board Refreshment process in early 2016.  Since then, three long-serving board members have stepped down.  The company continues to take meaningful steps towards adding Board members with a wealth of experience and diverse points of view.

 “As a former Fortune 500 CEO, Gracia knows how important it is for corporations today to be diverse in every aspect and we are thrilled to welcome her as Omnicom’s newest independent director,” said John Wren, President and CEO, Omnicom Group. “Our commitment to a diverse and inclusive workforce starts at the top with Omnicom’s independent Board of Directors now including six women and three African Americans. I look forward to working with this outstanding group as we enter our third decade as a leader in the marketing and communications business.”

MAL\FOR GOOD Writes Next Chapter Social Impact Marketing Agency Founded By Creative Legend Lee Clow Ramps-Up Leadership, Mission And Profile

TBWA Shop Names Julia Plowman Managing Director Releases Manifesto and Launches New Web Presence

LOS ANGELES, July 17, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — TBWA\Media Arts Lab social impact agency MAL\FOR GOOD (MFG), which was launched in 2014 and is dedicated to purpose based work, is ramping-up its leadership team by naming Julia Porter Plowman as Managing Director. The agency today also released a manifesto outlining its “Be Good. Do Good” philosophy and launched its first website: www.malforgood.com. Building on MFG’s three years of proven success within the social purpose marketplace, these moves elevate the TBWA shop’s profile and accelerate its mission to solve big, bold social issues.

“As a social impact agency with an extraordinary pedigree in serious brand building and culture creation, MFG has been in a class of its own,” said MFG Global Creative President Duncan Milner, who joined the shop in October last year from TBWA\Media Arts Lab where he was the Chief Creative Officer. “Today we proudly announce that we are stepping out with a reinforced leadership team, a stronger vision, a new look and naturally, a new website. We’re here to be good and do good, and do it differently.”

As a former Wieden + Kennedy Global Group Account Director, Plowman created world famous, award winning campaigns for Nike, Microsoft, Coca-Cola, Old Spice, Electronic Arts and Audi. She has worked with Wieden + Kennedy in Portland and Amsterdam, and helped launch the agency’s office in Tokyo. Since leaving that agency a decade ago, she has pursued a commitment to social enterprise and innovation, starting with the Nike Foundation where she helped launch “The Girl Effect,” a multiplatform campaign promoting investment in adolescent girls in the developing world to break the cycle of global poverty.  

After the Nike Foundation, Plowman was named COO of the non-profit World Pulse, which she helped turn into a social media network that supports and advocates for grassroots women leaders. Later, she became Managing Director of the social innovation design startup Context Partners, working closely with consumer brands and foundations including Vulcan, John D. Rockefeller Foundation, David and Lucille Packard Foundation, Walton Foundation, Knight Foundation and Ecotrust. Finally, before joining MFG, Plowman was Director of Integration and Communications at Providence Health & Services, the third largest not-for-profit health system in the country. At MFG, Plowman will be working alongside Milner, guiding next steps in the evolution of this unique social impact agency.

“Our working model is to offer world class creative focused on social impact,” said Plowman. “We’ve got a clear vision, the social enterprise climate is ripe and we’re backed by TBWA, a global network. MFG is all about helping brands and organizations find and spread their good in an authentic way in order to make the impact they want.”

“Julia’s career has been about innovation, purpose and making a difference,” said Troy Ruhanen, president and CEO, TBWA Worldwide. “She also has an incredible resume working for some of the world’s top consumer brands. She is a perfect fit for MFG. We’re building an agency that is staffed with some of the best, smartest and most talented people in the industry and we’re bringing all that to service causes and organizations that do good in the world. Our super powers are creativity and strategic thinking, and if we can use those to make positive change, that’s a good thing.”

TBWA/Media Arts Lab Chairman and Global Director Lee Clow launched MFG as a division of the TBWA Apple dedicated agency Media Arts Lab in March 2014. Since then the agency has created impactful campaigns as well as social movements; for example, MFG conceived and launched the nationwide XQ Super School bus tour, a grassroots community initiative now in its third year that challenges the nation’s largest public institution, the public school system, to change and better itself. In 2015, MFG won a Cannes Gold Lion award for film craft for the film The Ocean, created for Conservation International’s “Nature Is Speaking” campaign and narrated by actor Harrison Ford.

“Today, brands need to have more than just a point of view on what’s happening in the world,” said Clow. “A brand’s values need to be part of their brand behavior and message. Julia and Duncan leading MFG, uniquely positions us. They combine a deep understanding of “Social Impact” marketing with a world-class history of brand building and storytelling. They’ll do good.”
