Progress of Medium-Term Management Plan “Dentsu 2017 and Beyond”

Initiatives for establishing a foundation for sustainable growth1

  • Now I will talk about M&A to establish a foundation for sustainable growth.
  • M&A is an important means for this and we executed M&As aggressively outside Japan.
  • In recent years, we have aggressively carried out M&A as the top-priority issue in capital allocation. After the acquisition of Aegis in March 2013, we carried out 76 M&A transactions, which totaled about 760 million pounds in value terms.
  • Contribution of past M&A to profit has reached the level of 90 million pounds or higher in 2015.
  • M&A in the fast-growing digital domain accounts for 43% of total transactions.
