Nielsen Board OK’s Big Cash Dividend


Its stock is trading close to five-year lows established in late July 2018.

A strategic review of its assets continues, with Blackstone Group and Apollo Group supposedly still in the mix, depending on which Wall Street rumors you believe.

It’s been a bumpy 12 months for Nielsen Holdings plc, but that’s not stopping its Board of Directors from declaring a healthy cash dividend.

The company’s board on Friday (4/19) approved a quarterly cash dividend of 35 cents per share of common stock.

The dividend is payable on June 19, to shareholders of record at the close of business on June 5.

U.S. and Canadian financial markets are closed April 19 in observance of Good Friday and the first night of Passover.
