LONDON (Brand Republic) - French advertising group Havas Advertising is expected to confirm its purchase of US advertising agency McKinney & Silver this week in a deal believed be worth $20-$25m (£13.84m-£17.31m).

McKinney & Silver is owned by US internet services group marchFIRST and based in Raleigh, Northern Carolina. Founded 30 years ago, it is expected that McKinney will remain a separate entity under the Havas umbrella. The agency reported revenues last year of $26m (£18m).

The agency includes Audi of America, Bacardi USA and Ben & Jerry’s among its clients.

marchFIRST’s need for cash may mean the agency is sold for less than the expected amount, which was widely held to be a fair market value based on its revenues for last year.
