WPP To Spend Almost £300m To Reboot World's Biggest Ad Group

WPP will spend £300 million (€332 million) over three years and cut 2,500 jobs as new boss Mark Read seeks to return the world's biggest advertising group to growth.

The British company, owner of the JWT and Ogilvy agencies, lost its founder Martin Sorrell and 40% of its value in the last year. It has been forced to cut sales and profit forecasts after it lost some major clients and others cut their spending.
