    Fast facts: Publicly traded Aegis Group is a U.K.-based holding company with two segments: Aegis Media, its media-agency operation, and Synovate, its market-research unit.

    Revenue figures shown for the U.S. are Ad Age estimates.

    Aegis Group said its Aegis Media operation generated 31% of 2009 revenue from digital, up from 29% in 2008.

    Jerry Bulhmann in March 2010 became CEO of Aegis Group. He had been CEO of Aegis Media since June 2008.

    Vincent Bollore, who as of early 2010 owned 29.9% of Aegis Group, is chairman of French ad firm Havas as well as a major shareholder, and Bollore has tried unsuccessfully in recent years to get his representatives on the Aegis board. Aegis Chairman John Napier in March 2010 confirmed that Aegis was not in talks with French rival Havas. Napier said the "love affair" Bollore once promised between the two companies had been played out only in the newspapers. Napier said: "I haven't even had my hand held yet, let alone anything else. I'm getting rather disappointed."
