Third Uk Pr Agencies Are Running Loss

Friday, 20 January 2012

A third of UK PR agencies are running at a loss according to the latest report on the UK PR industry by Plimsoll Analysis.

Beattie Communications, which is continuing to expand, is offering to throw a financial lifeline to good agencies struggling in the current economic environment.

"According to Plimsoll, 244 PR agencies are in financial danger," said Laurna Woods, group managing director of Beattie Communications, the London-headquartered PR and marketing firm.

"We don't want to see any agency go out of business and we believe it is important we do our bit to support the PR sector. 

"We are financially robust and in a strong position to reach out to good PR agencies that are swimming against the economic tide.

"We would, therefore, urge the owners of vibrant, but troubled, PR agencies to get in touch to see if we can work out a deal to avoid their businesses from going under."
