In 1997, Bozell was listed by Advertising Age as the 8th-largest US agency, when it was acquired by True North, holding company for FCB.[citation needed]

In 2001, the remaining largest offices of Bozell Worldwide were merged with Lowe Worldwide as part of the Interpublic Group of Companies. The managing partners of the Bozell office in Omaha then bought themselves out from the holding company and began as an independent shop again.[clarification needed][citation needed]
