Law Firm Kirby McInerney LLP Investigating Potential Claims On Behalf Of Arbitron Inc. Shareholders

Kirby McInerney LLP is investigating potential claims against the Board of Directors of Arbitron Inc. (“Arbitron” or the “Company”) (NYSE: ARB) related to the proposed acquisition of the Company by Nielsen Holdings N.V. (NYSE: NLSN) (“Nielsen”). Under the terms of the agreement, Nielsen will acquire all of the shares of Arbitron that it does not already own for $48.00 per share for a total transaction value of $1.26 billion.

The investigation concerns whether the Arbitron Board of Directors violated its fiduciary duties by agreeing to this transaction and whether the proposed $48.00 per share consideration adequately values Arbitron common shares.
