NEW YORK, Dec. 18, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Pomerantz Grossman Hufford Dahlstrom & Gross LLP is investigating claims on behalf of investors of Arbitron, Inc. ("Arbitron" or the "Company") (ISIN: US03875Q1085) (CUSIP: 03875Q108) concerning the proposed acquisition of Arbitron, Inc. by Nielsen Holdings N.V. in a transaction valued at approximately $1.26 billion in cash.
The investigation concerns whether the Arbitron directors are breaching their fiduciary duties by failing to adequately shop the Company and maximize shareholder value. Under the terms of the agreement, Arbitron shareholders will be entitled to receive $48.00 per share in cash for each share of Arbitron common stock. However, the price to EBITDA multiples for the Company are below comparable transactions.
Arbitron shareholders seeking more information about this acquisition are advised to contact Robert Willoughby at email@example.com or 212-661-1100 or 888-476-6529, ext. 237.
