Shares have lagged recently on concerns about growth for its Insights business(primarily discretionary analyses looking at advertising vs. buying trends) in light of weakness in Europe and regulatory hurdles for its proposed acquisition of Arbitron – a deal to integrate measurement of radio alongside its core TV and internet offerings that we believe makes strategic sense, as it increases NLSN's ability to compare advertising effectiveness across more mediums."
