IPG chairman and CEO Michael Roth said, "Our organic revenue growth, which was 0.8% in the second quarter and 1.7% in the first half, reflects strength in high-growth international markets, digital and marketing services, as well as revenue headwinds that we‘d previously indentified."

The global economic situation remains uncertain, which will require vigilance as we move through the balance of the year, Roth said. "We are nonetheless targeting stronger growth in the second half, in order to achieve our full year 2012 objective of 3 per cent organic revenue growth."
