ARBITRON INC. announced that its Q4 net income drop from $14.1 million to $13.4 million, due to consulting, legal and other expenses related to its pending acquisition to NIELSEN HOLDINGS N.V. On the bright side, net income for the full year 2012 increased 6.8% to $56.9 million.
Meanwhile, ARBITRON informed its BOSTON and PROVIDENCE radio station clients the following:
In light of the snowstorm that struck your markets starting on FEBRUARY 8th, ARBITRON has reviewed In-Tab and other performance metrics for Week 2 of the FEBRUARY PPM report period (FEBRUARY 7th-13th).
We have determined that these metrics support the release of Week 2 Weeklies data. We, therefore, plan to release PPM Weeklies data for FEBRUARY Week 2 for all markets as scheduled. Week 2 will also be included in all PPM FEBRUARY 2013 monthly reports.
