Back in October, DesignRush reported that M&C Saatchi investors would regather to vote on the Next 15 Communications holding group’s acquisition of the agency. The special session happened on October 31st.

DesignRush, a B2B marketplace connecting businesses with agencies, followed the situation and shared the details.

In the past six months, Next 15 Communications has lost a third of its value, which was one of the major concerns.

Next 15 Communications also offered an unfavorable per-share value for M&C Saatchi.
