Philippe Krakowsky, CEO of IPG:

"Our focus remains on mitigating the impact of the health crisis on our clients, our business, and most important, our people. Their achievements have been remarkable, and I want to express our admiration for their resilience, and our appreciation for their ongoing commitment and effort.”

“As expected, our results this quarter continue to reflect the effect of the pandemic. Under challenging conditions, we reported a solid fourth quarter, especially in the U.S., and full year performance that once again should place us at the top of our sector. We continued to be disciplined with respect to expenses, proactive and strategic in our approach to structural cost actions, while simultaneously investing in our business during the year to accelerate areas of strongest opportunity and growth. That investment continues to result in differentiated capabilities and forward-looking offerings, which are in demand and driving success in the marketplace.”

sheet and financial flexibility remains a key priority, and the action by our Board announced today to increase our dividend further speaks to confidence in the forward trajectory of our company. While visibility into the full year remains challenging, due to exceptional macroeconomic circumstances, we fully expect to return to positive organic growth over the course of the year, and to post full-year 2021 growth consistent with the industry, on top of IPG’s 2020 outperformance relative to our peer group. Along with that growth, we expect to continue to build on our long-term record of improving profitability and sustained value creation.”

Fourth quarter 2020 net income available to IPG common stockholders was $112.3 million, resulting in earnings of $0.29 per basic share and $0.28 per diluted share, compared to $0.85 and $0.84, respectively, for the same period in 2019.

This compares to adjusted earnings of $0.88 per diluted share a year ago.
Income tax provision for the full year 2020 was $8.0 million on income before income taxes of $361.3 million, primarily driven by an income tax benefit of $136.2 million related to the finalization and settlement of the U.S. Federal income tax audit of the years 2006 through 2016.

For the full year 2020, net revenue of $8.06 billion decreased 6.5% compared to the same period in 2019. During the year, the effect of foreign currency translation was negative 0.8%, the impact of net divestitures was negative 0.9%, and the resulting organic revenue decrease was 4.8%. Total revenue of $9.06 billion decreased 11.4% during the full year 2020 compared to 2019.

Operating Expenses
For the fourth quarter of 2020, total operating expenses, excluding billable expenses and including restructuring charges, increased by 6.1%, and excluding restructuring charges decreased by 6.9%, compared to a net revenue decrease of 6.1% for the same period. For the full year 2020, total operating expenses, excluding billable expenses and including restructuring charges, decreased by 0.8%, and excluding restructuring charges decreased by 5.9%, compared to a net revenue decrease of 6.5% from a year ago.

Staff cost ratio, which is total salaries and related expenses as a percentage of net revenue, was 58.9% in the fourth quarter of 2020, which remained flat compared to the same period in 2019. For the full year 2020, staff cost ratio was 66.3%, compared to 64.6% in the same period in 2019. During the fourth quarter of 2020, salaries and related expenses were $1.35 billion, a decrease of 6.0% compared to the same period in 2019. For the full year 2020, salaries and related expenses were $5.35 billion, a decrease of 4.0% compared to 2019. The decrease was primarily driven by reductions in base salaries, benefits and tax and lower incentive and temporary help expenses in response to the declines in net revenue, which were primarily due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on economic conditions. The decreases were partially offset by increased severance expense.

For the fourth quarter and full year 2020, office and other direct expenses as a percentage of net revenue decreased to 16.0% and 17.0%, respectively, from 17.3% and 18.1%, respectively, for the same periods in 2019. During the fourth quarter of 2020, office and other direct expenses were $364.8 million, a decrease of 13.1% compared to the same period in 2019. For the full year 2020, office and other direct expenses were $1.37 billion, a decrease of 12.5% compared to 2019. The decrease in office and other direct expenses was mainly due to decreases in travel and entertainment expenses and new business and promotion expenses as well as lower occupancy expense and professional consulting fees, partially offset by an increase in bad debt expense.

For the fourth quarter of 2020, selling, general and administrative expenses as a percentage of net revenue was 1.0%, which remained flat compared to the same period in 2019. For the full year 2020 selling, general and administrative expenses as a percentage of net revenue decreased to 0.7%, from 1.1% in 2019. During the fourth quarter of 2020, selling, general and administrative expenses were $22.4 million, a decrease of 8.6% compared to the same period in

2019. For the full year 2020, selling, general and administrative expenses were $58.8 million, a decrease of 37.3% compared to 2019. The decrease was primarily attributable to a decrease in employee insurance expense, resulting from fewer insurance claims as well as lower incentive expense and travel and entertainment expenses.

For the fourth quarter and full year 2020, depreciation and amortization as a percentage of net revenue was 3.2% and 3.6%, respectively, compared to 2.7% and 3.2%, respectively, for the same periods in 2019. During the fourth quarter of 2020, depreciation and amortization was $73.7 million, an increase of 12.7% compared to the same period in 2019. For the full year 2020, depreciation and amortization was $290.6 million, an increase of 4.3% compared to 2019.

During the fourth quarter and full year 2020, restructuring charges were $253.9 million and $413.8 million, respectively, due to actions taken, with the objective of lowering our operating expenses structurally and permanently relative to revenue and accelerating the transformation of our business. The non-cash component of these charges was $169.9 million and $265.6 million for the fourth quarter and full year 2020, respectively. The majority of our charges reflect our actions to exit leased space totaling approximately 1.7 million square feet over the course of the year, in approximately 120 locations around the world.

Non-Operating Results and Tax
Net interest expense increased by $1.3 million to $40.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2020 from a year ago. Full year 2020 net interest expense decreased by $2.1 million to $162.7 million from a year ago.

Other expense, net was $9.8 million for the fourth quarter of 2020 and $64.4 million for the full year 2020, which primarily included losses on the sales of certain small, non-strategic businesses.

The income tax provision in the fourth quarter of 2020 was $58.1 million on income before income taxes of $173.6 million, compared to a provision of $86.1 million on income before income taxes of $427.8 million in the same period in 2019. The income tax provision for the full year 2020 was $8.0 million on income before income taxes of $361.3 million, compared to a provision of $204.8 million on income before income taxes of $878.3 million in 2019. The decrease in the provision for the full year 2020 is primarily due to an income tax benefit related to the finalization and settlement of the U.S. Federal income tax audit of the years 2006 through 2016.

The effective tax rate for the fourth quarter of 2020 was 33.5% compared to 20.1% for the same period in 2019. Excluding the impacts of amortization of acquired intangibles, restructuring charges, and losses on the sales of businesses, the effective tax rate for the fourth quarter of

2020 was 26.1% compared to 24.5% in 2019 as similarly adjusted. The effective tax rate for the full year 2020 was 2.2% compared to 23.3% for the same period in 2019.

1 In the second, third and fourth quarters of 2020, the Company took restructuring actions to lower our operating expenses structurally and permanently relative to revenue and to accelerate the transformation of our business. The adjustment of $31.8 for restructuring charges for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 only includes restructuring charges during the first quarter of 2019, which relate to a cost initiative to better align our cost structure with our revenue due to client losses occurring in 2018.
