Nielsen Holdings N.V. has reported its fiscal results for the first quarter of 2014. Revenue in the first three months of the year was up by 12.9 percent to $1.489 billion. Revenue, excluding the impacts of the Arbitron and Harris acquisitions, was up by 2.8 percent.
"Nielsen delivered a solid first quarter," said Mitch Barns, CEO of Nielsen. "Our underlying business performance, which was marked by broad-based revenue growth and strong profitability, was enhanced by the ongoing successful integration of Arbitron. Our clear focus on the key business priorities of our diverse global client base continues to produce steady and consistent results while delivering long-term value for our shareholders."
