Report: Omnicom, Publicis facing ad probe

The U.S. Department of Justice sent subpoenas to units of Omnicom Group Inc. and Publicis Groupe SA as part of a probe into potential price fixing in video-advertising production, The Wall Street Journal reported Dec. 16.

The probe is reportedly seeking to determine whether the companies "inappropriately" secured contracts for their in-house production divisions, while hurting the independent companies.

Earlier this month, the DOJ's Antitrust Division approached one of Interpublic Group of Cos. Inc.'s stand-alone domestic agencies for documents regarding video production practices.
