BENSALEM, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep 14, 2018--Law Offices of Howard G. Smith announces that a class action lawsuit has been filed on behalf of investors that purchased Nielsen Holdings plc (“Nielsen” or the “Company”) (NYSE:  NLSN ) securities between  February 8, 2018 and July 25, 2018, inclusive (the “Class Period”). Nielsen investors have until  October 9, 2018,  to file a lead plaintiff motion.

The Complaint filed in this class action alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) Nielsen recklessly disregarded its readiness for, and the true risks of, privacy-related regulations and policies, including the European General Data Protection Regulation, on its current and future financial and growth prospects; (2) Nielsen’s financial performance was far more dependent on Facebook and other third-party large data set providers than previously disclosed, and privacy policy changes affected the scope and terms of access Nielsen would have to third-party data; (3) access to Facebook and other third-party provider data was becoming increasingly restricted for Nielsen and its clients; and (4) as a result, defendants’ public statements were materially false and/or misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis.
