VNU extends buyout offer for Nielsen Media Research

Published on .

Haarlem, Netherlands--VNU N.V. announced Monday that its subsidiary, Niner Acquisition, is extending its offer to purchase all of Nielsen Media Research's outstanding shares of common stock. The offer has been extended until midnight Oct. 1, because both VNU and Nielsen Media Research received an additional request for information from the Federal Trade Commission. By law, the tendered shares cannot be purchased earlier than 10 days after VNU complies with the request from the FTC. VNU's offer for Nielsen Media Research remains identical to the original offer, and the company still expects to complete the acquisition this fall.
