Approval of Nielsen/Advent merger by Commission now published

Publication has been made of the Commission’s approval, on the basis of Article 6(1)(b) of the EU Merger Regulation, of the acquisition of Nielsen Global Connect of the UK (which provides market research services consisting of retail transactional data and related analytics) by Advent International of the U.S. (a global private equity investor in business and financial services, healthcare, industrial, retail consumer and leisure, and technology).

The Commission approved the proposed concentration on 21 December 2020, after concluding that the proposed acquisition would raise no competition concerns given the lack of horizontal overlaps and vertical links between the activities of the companies.

The case number is M.10065.<
