According to the Complaint, the Company made false and misleading statements to the market. Nielsen demonstrated a reckless disregard towards its readiness for and risks of new privacy rules and regulations such as the EU’s GDPR, as they impact growth prospects. The Company’s ability to maintain financial performance was much more dependent on Facebook and other third-party data providers than it had disclosed, and as a result, would be seriously impacted by privacy rule changes by these firms. Over time, Facebook and other data set providers did become more and more restrictive with access to the data Nielsen relied on. As a result of these facts, the Company’s public statements were false and materially misleading throughout the class period. When the market learned the truth about Nielsen, investors suffered damages.

Join the case to recover your losses.
