The following corrections and clarifications are from Agency Report 2008 (AA, May 5):

• Estimated 2007 revenue for Interpublic Group's Reprise Media was $12 million (not $7.8 million).
• Estimated 2007 revenue for Omnicom Group-backed Critical Mass was $73.5 million (not $67 million).
• Estimated 2007 U.S. revenue for Havas' Euro RSCG Worldwide network was $404 million in 2007 and $393 million in 2006. (The "Top 15 Consolidated Agency Networks" chart incorrectly listed Euro RSCG's worldwide revenue as U.S. revenue.)
• International Marketing & Sales Group is an agency holding company operating in Russia and other markets. It was incorrectly listed as an independent agency network.
• The 2006 ranking of IBM Corp. (IBM Interactive) among the world's top 25 agency companies should have been marked "NA" (not 73).
• Interpublic's Berenter Greenhouse & Webster is a general-market ad agency. The Agency Report poster incorrectly described it as a health-care agency.

Updated rankings based on the data revisions are in the charts and graphics listed above.
