Next 15 Communications wanted to acquire M&C Saatchi. DesignRush looked into the potential acquisition and shared the details of the takeover attempt.


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.

Hence, with 89% voting against it, the deal fell and M&C Saatchi still remains the largest independent agency in the world.
