Michael Roth, Chairman and CEO, IPG:

“At IPG, we continue to stay focused on the safety, health and well-being of our employees, clients, and key partners. In light of the very challenging environment, we are proud of our results in the quarter, and the work our people are doing under such challenging and extraordinary circumstances. This level of performance demonstrates how effectively our companies and our people have adjusted to new ways of working.”

“During the quarter, we continued to stay close to clients, and invest in our offerings, while managing operating expenses to revenue. Unquestionably, there will be enduring consumer changes because of the pandemic, including the mass shift to ecommerce, the emergence of digital consumer experience, and a deeper accountability for brand authenticity and purpose. At IPG, we are distinctively well-resourced with outstanding talent and tools to help marketers re-think and re-imagine their brands. Our new business pipeline continues to be active, and has begun to recover relative to earlier this year. We continue our program of structural operating cost reduction to lower our expense base, and raise our margin potential going forward. Our balance sheet and liquidity continue to be further areas of strength.”

“Looking forward to our important fourth quarter, visibility remains unclear for as long as COVID-19 is disrupting everyday life and macroeconomic conditions. As always, we will be disciplined in how we manage the business, aligning expenses closely to any changes in revenue. We look forward to returning to our strong trajectory of organic revenue and profit growth as a macro recovery takes hold. We are thankful for the continued close partnership with our clients, and proud of our employees around the world for their outstanding work and productivity despite all the challenges brought by the pandemic.”

Operating Results

Revenue
Net revenue of $1.95 billion in the third quarter of 2020 decreased 5.2% compared with the same period in 2019. During the quarter, the effect of foreign currency translation was negative 0.3%, the impact of net dispositions was negative 1.2%, and the resulting organic net revenue decrease was 3.7%. Total revenue, which includes billable expenses, was $2.13 billion in the third quarter of 2020, compared to $2.44 billion in 2019.

Net revenue of $5.78 billion in the first nine months of 2020 decreased 6.7% compared with the same period in 2019. During the first nine months of 2020, the effect of foreign currency translation was negative 1.2%, the impact of net dispositions was negative 1.0%, and the resulting organic net revenue decrease was 4.5%. Total revenue, which includes billable expenses, was $6.51 billion in the first nine months of 2020, compared to $7.32 billion in 2019.

Operating Expenses
For the third quarter and first nine months of 2020, total operating expenses, excluding billable expenses, decreased by 4.2% and 3.3%, respectively, and excluding 2020 and first-quarter 2019 restructuring charges, 6.9% and 5.6%, respectively.

Salaries and related expenses decreased 4.8% to $1.27 billion during the third quarter of 2020, compared to $1.33 billion for the same period in 2019. The decrease was primarily driven by reductions in base salaries, benefits and tax and lower temporary help in response to the declines in net revenue, primarily due to the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on economic conditions. The cumulative decreases were partially offset by increased severance and incentive expenses. The increase in incentive expense for the quarter is related to better than projected performance in the quarter as well as timing related adjustments in the comparable prior-year quarter. During the first nine months of 2020, salaries and related expenses decreased 3.3% to $4.00 billion, compared to $4.14 billion for the same period in 2019, primarily driven by factors similar to those noted above for the third quarter of 2020. 

Office and other direct expenses decreased as a percentage of net revenue to 15.8% during the third quarter of 2020, compared to 17.8% a year ago, and decreased as a percentage of net revenue to 17.4% during the first nine months of 2020, compared to 18.5% a year ago. The decreases were mainly due to decreases in travel and entertainment expenses and new business and promotion expenses as well as lower occupancy expense and professional consulting fees, partially offset by an increase in bad debt expense and a year-over-year change in contingent acquisition obligations.

Selling, general and administrative expenses remained flat as a percentage of net revenue for the third quarter of 2020, compared to the same period in 2019. For the first nine months of 2020, selling, general and administrative expenses decreased as a percentage of net revenue to 0.6%, compared to 1.1% a year ago, primarily attributable to a decrease in employee insurance expense, as well as a decrease in travel and entertainment expenses.

Depreciation and amortization slightly increased as a percentage of net revenue to 3.6% during the third quarter of 2020, compared to 3.3% a year ago, and increased as a percentage of net revenue to 3.8% during the first nine months of 2020, compared to 3.4% a year ago. 

Restructuring charges in the third quarter and first nine months of 2020 were $47.3 million and $159.9 million, respectively, related to actions taken, with the objective of lowering our operating expenses structurally and permanently relative to revenue and accelerating the transformation of our business. With these actions, the Company is exiting approximately 900,000 square feet of leased space in approximately 60 locations around the world and reducing its global workforce by approximately 2%.

Most of these actions are based on our recent experience and learning in the COVID-19 pandemic and a resulting review of our operations, which continues, to address certain operating expenses such as occupancy expense and salaries and related expenses. This compares to restructuring charges of $33.9 million in the first nine months of 2019.

Non-Operating Results and Tax
Net interest expense increased by $4.5 million to $44.7 million in the third quarter of 2020 from a year ago, and decreased by $3.4 million to $122.7 million in the first nine months of 2020 from a year ago.

Other expense, net was $11.3 million in the third quarter of 2020 and $54.6 million in the first nine months of 2020, which primarily included losses on the sales of certain small, non-strategic businesses.

The income tax benefit in the third quarter of 2020 was $86.3 million on income before income taxes of $192.6 million, primarily due to an income tax benefit of $136.2 million related to the finalization and settlement of the U.S. Federal income tax audit from years 2006 through 2016. This compares to an income tax provision of $64.6 million for the third quarter of 2019 on income before income taxes of $232.7 million.

The income tax benefit in the first nine months of 2020 was $50.1 million on income before income taxes of $187.7 million, primarily driven by the same factor noted above for the third quarter of 2020. This compares to an income tax provision of $118.7 million in the first nine months of 2019 on income before income taxes of $450.5 million.

Balance Sheet
At September 30, 2020, cash and cash equivalents totaled $1.63 billion, compared to $1.19 billion at December 31, 2019 and $520.5 million on September 30, 2019. Total debt was $3.96 billion at September 30, 2020, compared to $3.33 billion at December 31, 2019. The increase in debt is primarily due to our issuance of $650.0 million in aggregate principal amount of senior notes on March 30, 2020.

Common Stock Dividend
During the third quarter of 2020, the Company declared and paid a common stock cash dividend of $0.255 per share, for a total of $99.4 million.

1 In the second and third quarters of 2020, the Company took restructuring actions to lower our operating expenses structurally and permanently relative to revenue and to accelerate the transformation of our business. The adjustment of $31.8 for restructuring charges for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 only includes restructuring charges from the the first quarter of 2019, which relate to a cost initiative to better align our cost structure with our revenue due to client losses occurred in 2018.
