Nielsen and NetRatings Friday completed their previously announced merger -- a deal in which the ratings giant will buy the remaining 40% of NetRatings it doesn’t already own for an estimated $327 million.
The merger was approved by the stockholders of NetRatings at a special meeting held Friday. As a result of the merger, NetRatings became a privately held company, wholly owned by Nielsen and its subsidiaries. Shares of NetRatings’ common stock -- which, prior to the merger, traded on the NASDAQ Global Market under the symbol “NTRT” -- were delisted from trading as of the close of the market.
