JCDecaux: “2009 was undoubtedly the most difficult year that JCDecaux has experienced...Reduced advertising budgets and strong pricing pressure led to a global advertising revenue decline - including online advertising - expected to be around 10% in 2009...JCDecaux performed relatively in line with the market in 2009 with an organic revenue decline of 10.9%, ahead of our most recent guidance thanks to late money spent in 4Q2009 and increased exposure to emerging markets,” Jean-François Decaux, Chairman and Co-CEO.
