Notes: Media Square is a publicly held community of marketing services and marketing communications companies, stretching across Europe, the Far East, Africa and America. The main U.S. entity is the network office for The Gate, an integrated advertising agency network with offices in New York, London, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Singapore and Johannesburg. Formerly known as Citigate Albert Frank, the financial agency, The Gate rebranded in May 2005. U.K.-based Media Square, servicing more than 2,500 clients and employing 1,800 people worldwide, was founded in 2000 to tap into the then booming e-market. It made its big move into the broader marketing communications field in November 2005 by buying 17 marketing communications, advertising, research, on-line and marketing services businesses from Huntsworth, all but one (Homes & Marchant) previously owned by advertising organization Incepta Group prior to its acquisition early in 2005 by Huntsworth. Revenue tallies in this report are Ad Age estimates based on first-half interim results and management's analysis of expectations in the second half. Prior-year figures were adjusted to reflect Media Square's shift from a fiscal closing in October 2005 (for fiscal 2006) to February 2007.
