Feds OK With Golden Gate Purchase of NeuStar

WASHINGTON — The federal government has no antitrust issues with the acquisition of marketing information services company NeuStar by Golden Gate Capital for approximately $2.9 billion.

That came in a notice from the Federal Trade Commission that either it or the Justice Department (they don't reveal which) had concluded the Hart-Scott-Rodino antitrust review and found no reason to condition or sue to block the deal.

On Dec. 14, NeuStar announced it had a deal to be bought by the investment group.

NeuStar last summer partnered with satellite-TV provider Dish Network to provide targeted TV advertising.
