17:06 EDTARB, NLSNNielsen discloses receipt of FTC request for more information in Arbitron deal
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.

06:28 EDTNLSNBillboard 200 chart to include on-demand streaming in rankings
The Billboard 200 albums chart will premiere its biggest upgrade in more than 23 years, transforming from a pure sales-based ranking to one measuring multi-metric consumption. Beginning with the top 10 revealed on Wednesday, Dec. 3, on Billboard.com, the chart, which currently tracks the top 200 albums of the week by sales alone, will be the first to include on-demand streaming and digital track sales -- as measured by Nielsen Entertainment (NLSN) -- by way of a new algorithm. It is the most substantial methodology update since May 1991, when Billboard first used Nielsen's point-of-sale data -- SoundScan -- to measure album sales. The updated Billboard 200 will utilize accepted industry benchmarks for digital and streaming data, equating 10 digital track sales from an album to one equivalent album sale, and 1,500 song streams from an album to one equivalent album sale. All of the major on-demand audio subscription services are considered, including Spotify, Beats Music (AAPL), Google Play (GOOG) and Xbox Music (MSFT). Reference Link
