John Rogers Comments on Interpublic Group of Cos. Inc.

July 25, 2013 | About:

Advertising holding company Interpublic Group of Cos., Inc. (IPG) gained +12.27% after reporting a solid earnings quarter. The company's reported loss of -$0.13 per share was in line with analyst estimates, and contained significant good news below the headline. Specifically, organic revenue rose +2.3% globally and much better in Latin America and other key growth geographies. Crucially, the company retired its entire $200 million in 4.75% convertible senior notes, thereby bolstering the firm's capital structure. In addition, IPG repurchased 6.2 million shares of stock over the course of the quarter and increased the dividend by 25 percent. In other words, we were pleased with the way management made the key decisions under its control.
