Publicis Groupe : Conseil du 27 novembre 2012

PARIS, November 28, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

Le Conseil de Surveillance de Publicis Groupe [EURONEXT Paris : FR0000130577] réuni le 27 novembre 2012, sous la présidence de Madame Elisabeth Badinter a examiné les comptes du troisième trimestre 2012 dont les chiffres de revenus ont déjà été publiés. Il a également examiné les chiffres du mois d'octobre dont il s'est déclaré très satisfait et a pris note des travaux en cours pour la clôture de l'exercice 2012 et pour le budget de l'année 2013.

Par ailleurs, le Conseil de Surveillance a décidé de soumettre à l'Assemblée générale extraordinaire des actionnaires qui se tiendra au cours du premier semestre 2013 une proposition de modification des  statuts visant à ramener la durée des mandats des membres du Conseil de Surveillance à quatre ans. Il sera également demandé aux actionnaires de se prononcer à titre consultatif sur les rémunérations des principaux dirigeants. Cette solution avait déjà été utilisée de façon satisfaisante à l’occasion de la fixation de la rémunération différée du Président du Directoire.

A l'occasion de l'arrêté des comptes 2012 et conformément aux engagements pris lors de la dernière Assemblée générale de Publicis Groupe, la politique de dividendes sera revue pour amener progressivement et sur quelques années le taux de distribution des bénéfices à un niveau plus conforme avec la moyenne du secteur autour de 35% en fonction des programmes d'investissements et de l'environnement économique et social.

Enfin, le Conseil a tenu à remercier vivement et unanimement Jack Klues qui a souhaité cesser ses fonctions au service du Groupe à la fin 2012. Il a remis ses mandats de membre du Directoire et de Chief Executive Officer de VivaKi à la disposition du Conseil de Surveillance. Le Conseil, avec regret, a pris acte de sa demande de départ à la retraite et l'a remercié pour son engagement total et sa contribution au succès du Groupe. Madame Elisabeth Badinter a rendu hommage aux qualités humaines et professionnelles de Jack Klues et à ses efforts incessants pour aider à faire de la transformation media et digitale de Publicis Groupe un succès total.

Son départ du Directoire prendra effet le 31 décembre 2012. Il restera cependant au sein de Publicis Groupe à la demande de Maurice Lévy, durant le premier semestre 2013, pour parachever la mise en place de la nouvelle organisation de VivaKi et son ouverture au marché annoncée début novembre.

« Depuis que Jack a rejoint le Groupe, il a été une force motrice et d'innovation avec le succès que l'on sait. J'ai construit avec Jack une relation de confiance et d'amitié. C'est ensemble que nous avons travaillé étroitement au développement de VivaKi et c'est grâce à sa vision du métier et son implication constante que Publicis Groupe s'est hissé au tout premier rang mondial dans son offre media et numérique. Après 35 années consacrées à relever de nombreux défis et à contribuer à bien des réussites, d'abord chez Leo Burnett, puis chez Bcom3 et au sein de Publicis Groupe, je lui suis très reconnaissant d'avoir contribué à la transformation du Groupe et tiens à le remercier chaleureusement. Il laisse une organisation en parfait état, avec des outils performants et des équipes dirigeantes de grand talent. » a déclaré Maurice Lévy Président du Directoire de Publicis Groupe.
