In an update to the Agency.com saga, Adweek reprots that Agency.com has taken itself out of the running for the Subway interactive pitch.
A representative of the Omnicom Group agency here said it withdrew from consideration when it reached the finals of a pitch for a conflicting account, which he declined to name. Subway's account selection process was taking longer than anticipated, and Agency.com decided to take itself out of the running, he said.
The Agency.com rep said the negative reactions had no impact on its withdrawal.
"Our decision was based solely on this conflict of interest," he said.
