Publicis Chief executive Levy and Omnicom Group head Wren react during a joint news conference in ParisBy Tom Bergin and Pamela Barbaglia LONDON (Reuters) - International pressure to curb corporate tax avoidance is behind delays to a $35 billion merger of French advertising group Publicis and U.S. rival Omnicom, and could even scupper the deal, tax advisers and sources close to the deal said. Last July, Paris-based Publicis and New York-headquartered Omnicom announced plans to create the world's biggest advertising group. The new company would be registered in the Netherlands and tax resident in the UK. However, on Wednesday Omnicom Chief Executive John Wren said the Dutch and British tax authorities had, "unexpectedly" so far failed to approve the arrangements, which Omnicom said last year would save $80 million a year in taxes.
