Publicis Groupe has beat its own projections of a second-quarter recovery by posting a 3.1% increase in organic sales for the first quarter. The holding company performed best in France, where its sales rose organically by 8.4%, while the U.S. showed an increase of 5.6% and emerging markets 6.2%. Publicis' new acquisition, Razorfish, increased sales by 8.6%, but its figures were not included with its organic sales increase.
