The above graphs compare WPP’s 20-year TSR performance relative to our primary peers and the major indices in both the US and Europe. Over this period, a £100 investment in January 1994 in WPP ADRs would be worth £1,940 in January 2014 and a £100 investment in January 1994 in WPP ordinary shares would be worth £1,898 in January 2014, with both investments out-performing our competitors and the local indices. An identical investment in either the S&P 500 or the FTSE 100 would be worth £518 or £413 respectively.
