U.K. media buying firm Aegis said on Friday trading had been in line with expectations as organic revenue growth across the group remained very healthy.
"Although reported results will reflect the current strength of sterling, we expect to deliver a good underlying improvement in pre-tax profit at constant currencies for the first half of 2007," it said.
The company said the fastest growth within its media business continues to be in Europe, the Middle East and Africa, the Asia-Pacific region and digital services. The strongest growth in Synovate, its research arm, was in the Americas, Asia-Pacific and from global clients.
Shares in Aegis were up 1.5% in early trading.
