Initially, the  partners  of  February  will  have  a  majority  stake  in  the  venture,  with  M&C  Saatchi Worldwide taking over the majority stake over an agreed timescale.

 

Krishnan said,  “We're  delighted  to be  joining  forces  with  M&C Saatchi  as we embark  on the next phase  of February’s  exciting  journey.  We’ve been doing some great work for some wonderful clients over the last couple of years, and this new partnership will help us play on an even bigger stage going forward.”

 

Pulickal added, “When we launched February two years ago we had a simple goal – to create great work that works for our clients’ business.  It’s great to find a partner in M&C Saatchi who shares our vision entirely. We’re very excited about the future of M&C Saatchi February.”
