WPP AUNZ chief executive Michael Connaghan said the group was pleased with its progress in 2016.

“Our business model continues to deliver organic growth as well as future expansion opportunities through the global WPP group,” he said.

“In particular, the merger provides exciting pathways for our talented people and generates market-leading services for our clients.

“While we remain cautious on the outlook, given a flat media market, restrained client spend and a subdued macro-economic environment, we saw significant momentum in new client wins in the final months of the year. At this stage, we expect to deliver mid-single digit growth in earnings per share for the full year 2017.”
