06:52 EDTOMCOmnicom reports Q2 EPS$1.23, consensus $1.17
Reports Q2 revenue $3.87B, consensus $3.8B. Q2 results include $1.8M of pre-tax charges in connection with the proposed merger with Publicis, which are primarily comprised of professional fees. In addition, the effective tax rate for the second quarter reflects the recognition of an income tax benefit of $11.2M related to previously incurred expenses for the proposed merger with Publicis. On May 8, the proposed merger with Publicis was terminated. Prior to the termination of the merger, the majority of the merger costs were capitalized for income tax purposes and the related tax benefits were not recorded. Because the merger was terminated, the merger costs were no longer required to be capitalized for income tax purposes. The net impact of these items on net income available to common shareholders in the second quarter was $9.2M. The impact on diluted EPS was 3c per common share.

12:21 EDTAMCXCable ad upfront volumes may drop 4% or more, WSJ says
Two of the U.S.'s biggest marketers, Procter & Gamble (PG) and General Motors (GM), have pulled back on their TV network advertising commitments in advance of the "upfront" selling season for cable networks, said The Wall Street Journal, citing people familiar with the matter. The overall volume of ad dollars committed to cable networks during the upfront, which is still under way, could be down 4% or more from last year, people familiar with the situation said. Notable owners of cable television stations include 21st Century Fox (FOXA), Time Warner (TWX), Disney (DIS), CBS (CBS), Comcast (CMCSA), Discovery (DISCA), Viacom (VIAB), and AMC Networks (AMCX). The report added that cutbacks partly reflect a shift of tv ad budgets to digital media, including online video. Google (GOOG) has a large presence in online video with YouTube and Facebook (FB) is taking steps to grow in the area. Reference Link
