    (a) On January 1, 2009, we retrospectively adopted revisions to ASC
        Topic 810 Consolidation - Noncontrolling Interest in a Subsidiary.
        In accordance with the presentation requirements of ASC Topic 810,
        we modified the format of our consolidated statement of income to
        conform to the disclosure requirements of the revised guidance.
    (b) On January 1, 2009, we adopted revisions to ASC Topic 260 Earnings
        per Share - Participating Securities and the Two-Class Method, which
        provides that all outstanding unvested share-based payments that
        contain rights to non-forfeitable dividends participate in the
        undistributed earnings with the common shareholders and are therefore
        participating securities.  Companies with participating securities
        are required to apply the two-class method in calculating basic and
        diluted earnings per share.  On adoption of the revised guidance, we
        retrospectively restated basic and diluted Net Income per Common Share
        - Omnicom Group Inc. for each period presented.  The adoption reduced
        Net Income, for the purposes of the basic and diluted net income per
        common share for the three months ended September 30, 2009 and 2008,
        by $1.8 million and $3.1 million, respectively.
