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.

We have heard that the best interface is no interface. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, Co-Founder & CTO at Octoblu, Inc., will discuss how thes...
Last week, while in San Francisco, I used the Uber app and service four times. All four experiences were great, although one of the drivers stopped for 30 seconds and then left as I was walking up to the car. He must have realized I was a blogger. None the less, the next car was just a minute away and I suffered no pain. In this article, my colleague, Ved Sen, Global Head, Advisory Services Social, Mobile and Sensors at Cognizant shares his experiences and insights.
We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) ir...
Can call centers hang up the phones for good? Intuitive Solutions did. WebRTC enabled this contact center provider to eliminate antiquated telephony and desktop phone infrastructure with a pure web-based solution, allowing them to expand beyond brick-and-mortar confines to a home-based agent model. It also ensured scalability and better service for customers, including MUY! Companies, one of the country's largest franchise restaurant companies with 232 Pizza Hut locations. This is one example of WebRTC adoption today, but the potential is limitless when powered by IoT. Attendees will learn rea...

While great strides have been made relative to the video aspects of remote collaboration, audio technology has basically stagnated. Typically all audio is mixed to a single monaural stream and emanates from a single point, such as a speakerphone or a speaker associated with a video monitor. This leads to confusion and lack of understanding among participants especially regarding who is actually speaking. Spatial teleconferencing introduces the concept of acoustic spatial separation between conference participants in three dimensional space. This has been shown to significantly improve comprehe...
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, will discuss single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example...
