Aegis sale to Dentsu agreed by shareholders
The acquisition of Aegis Group by Dentsu has been agreed by 97 percent of the company’s shareholders.
The proposed £3.2bn deal, announced last month, will see the owner of agencies such as Carat, iProspect and Isobar, become part of the Japanese advertising group.
Aegis shareholders have now approved the sale, expected to be concluded in the fourth quarter of 2012.
Discussing the deal in a video to shareholders, Aegis Group CEO Jerry Buhlmann said that it would offer continuity and stability for all staff within the group as being a key factor.
