Interpublic (IPG) to Report Q2 Earnings: What's in Store?
The Interpublic Group of Companies, Inc. IPG is scheduled to report second-quarter 2020 results on Jul 29, before the opening bell.

What to Expect This Time Around
Unfavorable impact of foreign currency movements is likely to have partially offset the positive impact of organic growth.

Decline in operating margins is likely to have weighed on the bottom line. The Zacks Consensus Estimate for earnings is pegged at 20 cents, indicating a massive decline of 56.5% from the year-ago reported figure.
