The Marketing Group (TMG)

Business description

The Marketing Group is building a global full-service marketing network. Each company within the group provides specialist marketing services brought together, within communities of practice, to form an international network that can address a global market.

Investment summary

The Marketing Group’s (TMG) Q118 update shows the group delivering sales broadly in line and EBITDA a little ahead of expectations through good cost control. This discipline should stand TMG in good stead as it builds its business both within the existing agencies and in potential further acquisitions. Our forecasts are unchanged on this update. With the TRUTH blockchain-enabled media agency continuing to garner high levels of industry interest, the scale of the discount of the rating to the peer group is looking increasingly anomalous.

Industry outlook

The level of disruption to the media sector status quo has reached new heights, exacerbated by the dominance of Google and Facebook within the (digital) market, along with some of the largest consumer clients taking marketing communications in-house or setting zero-based budgets. This unsettled backdrop may throw up some interesting opportunities for M&A at all scale levels.
