Nielsen Holdings' Management Presents At 40th Annual J.P. Morgan Global Technology, Media And Telecom Conference (Transcript)

Nielsen Holdings N.V. (NLSN)

40 th Annual J.P. Morgan Global Technology, Media and Telecom Conference

May 15, 2012 10:40 AM ET


Andrew Steinerman – JP Morgan

Brian West – CFO

Steve Hasker – President, Global Media Products and Advertiser Solutions


Andrew Steinerman

All right, let’s settle down. This is the info-services track of the TMT Conference. Thanks for joining us. I’m Andrew Steinerman, your business information services analyst. I’m pleased to be with my colleague Dave Lewis on your left here. This is the Nielsen presentation. Thanks for joining us. I think we have a great line up here of the top management of Nielsen. On my left is CFO, Brian West. After him is Steve Hasker, he heads up the Watch product; and Liz Zale of IR is on my right here.

So why don’t we just start, if it’s okay, Brian. For people who are less familiar with Nielsen or might just think Nielsen is just Watch, could you give an overall view, profile of the company, the mix of business and then transition to what are the longer-term growth ambitions, organic, and what are your margin ambitions over the intermediate term?

Brian West

Sure, great. Is this on, we good? All right. Thank you and thanks for having us here. Nielsen is all about being wrapped around two fundamental engagements with the consumer; what they watch, what they buy. And no one else has those two fundamental engagements, and believe it or not, they work together. So one, we’re unique in that front, and two, we do it all over the world, 100 countries.
