During the class period Defendants repeatedly assured investors that Nielsen’s measurement and analytics services were continuously viable and strong. They also downplayed the effect of the European General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) on the Company’s business.
Then, on July 26, 2018, Defendants announced disappointing financial results for Nielsen’s second quarter of 2018 and that the GDPR negatively impacted its growth rates.
This news drove the price of Nielsen shares down $7.46, or over 25%, to close at $22.11 that day.
“The generally-anticipated and far-reaching effects of the GDPR, which became effective in May 2018, have now reverberated far beyond the European Union,” said Hagens Berman partner Reed Kathrein. “We’re focused on Nielsen investors’ losses and Defendants’ assurances about their preparedness for the new law.”
