At its foundation in 1970, Saatchi & Saatchi was financed with £100,000 of capital from the brothers and some backers including the designer Mary Quant and her husband.The initial shareholding was 15% Cannon Holdings (Quant & friends); 42% Charles; 38% Maurice; 2.5% John Hegarty; 2.5% Tim Bell. To achieve the first large merger (Garland Compton in 1975) the brothers sold their interest in their business for shares, receiving 0% of the enlarged group, while Compton U. A owned 26% and 38% was held by public shareholders.This was a successful decade for Saatchi: a time when the agency produced admired creative work, and had an appetite for global business expansion.

Between 19 over 35 marketing services businesses were acquired, including four significant ad agency networks.

The agency was seen as producing breakthrough creative work with a bold attitude and employed people who went on to be stars of their industry including Sir John Hegarty, Lord Tim Bell and Sir Martin Sorrell.

Colgate-Palmolive assignments were also pulled from Bates at the same time as their direct competitor Procter & Gamble were pulling business from Saatchi & Saatchi Compton and DFS Dorland due to their conflict concerns.

However the London ad agency was still the number one in the profits in the UK in 1987 and the Worldwide Group was performing financially with Saatchi & Saatchi Company PLC recording its seventeenth year of consecutive growth with profits of £124.1M up from the 1986's £70.1M.

In 1975, the Saatchi brothers set upon a ferocious course of business acquisitions.

With the reverse takeover of the Garland Compton agency in 1975, they achieved a public company listing and were thereafter able to make rights issues to raise the capital required for their acquisition drive.Once the financial press became aware of the moves the brothers became the subject of unprecedented ridicule with the criticisms focused on the notion that bank customers, staff and shareholders would be able to make no sense of their bank being part of an ad agency group.The City's reaction was swift and in mid-September 1987 the Saatchi & Saatchi share price fell 6.2% in two days.Garland Compton was also a top 10 agency with big spending clients including Bass, British Caledonian, Gillette, New Zealand Dairy Board, Procter & Gamble, Schweppes and United Biscuits.They had also established a regional network of agencies and, of course, had access to the global Compton network.From June 1988 (see next section), the company began to use redeemable preference shares to raise capital.
