Nielson (NLSN) disclosed in a regulatory filing that on March 8 Nielsen Holdings received a request for additional information and documentary materials from the Federal Trade Commission regarding the proposed merger of TNC Sub I Corporation, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Nielsen, with and into Arbitron (ARB). Arbitron also received a similar request. The requests were issued under the notification requirements of the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976. Nielsen intends to respond expeditiously to the request and continue to work cooperatively with the FTC in connection with this review. Completion of the acquisition remains subject to the expiration or termination of the waiting period under the HSR Act, customary closing conditions and approval by Arbitronís stockholders.

08:25 EDTNLSNNetflix on pace to have larger audience than all networks, FBR says
FBR Capital analyst Barton Crockett says that while Netflix (NFLX) is not rated by Nielsen (NLSN), the 10B hours streamed in Q1 reported by the company are equivalent to having a 24-hour rating of 2.6, on par with Disney's (DIS) ABC and Comcast's (CMCSA) NBC. And while ratings at broadcasters are falling on average, Netflix is growing its ratings at a 40%-plus compound annual rate, Crockett tells investors this morning in a research note. At this pace, Netflix in a year will have a larger 24-hour audience than all broadcast networks, he contends. Regarding last night's 7-for-1 stock split announcement, Crockett says the move reflects management's confidence in the "durability of the recent stock surge." For perspective, three years ago Netflix shares were around $60. This morning they are trading up $18.69 to $699.88 in the pre-market. Crockett has an Outperform rating on the streaming service with a $900 price target.
