Read MoreHide Full Article

Omnicom Group Inc. (OMC - Free Report) is scheduled to report fourth-quarter 2021 results on Feb 8, after the bell.

The company has an impressive earnings surprise history. It surpassed the Zacks Consensus Estimate in all of the trailing four quarters, delivering an earnings surprise of 15.3 %, on average.

Q4 Expectations

The Zacks Consensus Estimate for revenues for the to-be-reported quarter is pegged at $3.69 billion, indicating a 1.9% decline from the year-ago quarter’s reported figure. The top line is expected to predominantly reflect the impact of the decrease in acquisition revenues, net of disposition revenue.

The Zacks Consensus Estimate for earnings is pegged at $1.72 per share and implies a year-over-year decrease of 9.5%. Higher selling, general and administrative expenses are likely to have weighed on the bottom line in the quarter.
