Adbrands Weekly Update 10th Dec 2015: Interpublic made changes to its 20-year partnership with Russian affiliate ADV Group, which has traditionally owned and managed all local outposts of IPG agencies, and also has a similar partnership with Havas. Now IPG has bought back from ADV a majority stake in the local McCann, FCB and Lowe creative agencies, and established a dedicated IPG Russia unit to lead those businesses. ADV retains a minority stake in these three agencies, but will continue to control Interpublic's other Russian affiliates, including local offices of UM and Initiative. No price was disclosed for the deal.
