Major Shareholders Call for VNU Breakup

“Dutch publisher VNU NV is facing calls from its biggest investors to break up the company rather than be bought up for over 7 billion euros ($8.3 billion) by private equity firms.

“The world’s biggest market research company would be broken up into three segments — Media and Measurement, Marketing Information and Business Information.”
