How Hard Will Coronavirus Hit Omnicom's (OMC) Q3 Earnings?

Omnicom Group Inc. OMC is scheduled to report third-quarter 2020 results on Oct 27, before the bell.

Expectations in Detail

The Zacks Consensus Estimate for revenues is pegged at $3.14 billion, indicating a 13.5% decline from the year-ago quarter’s actual figure. The top line is expected to predominantly reflect the impact of decline in organic revenues, resulting from drop in business activities due to the coronavirus pandemic. 

Decline in acquisition revenues, net of disposition revenues, and unfavorable foreign-exchange movements are also expected to have weighed on the top line. In second-quarter 2020, total revenues of $2.8 billion decreased 24.7% year over year.

The Zacks Consensus Estimate for earnings calls for a pandemic-led year-over-year decline of 15.2%. In second-quarter 2020, adjusted earnings of 92 cents per share decreased 45.2% on a year-over-year basis.
