The lawsuit has been filed in the U.S. District Court for the Southern
District of New York on behalf of all those who purchased Nielsen common
stock between February 8, 2018 and July 25, 2018 (the "Class Period").
The case, Gordon v. Nielsen Holdings PLC et al., No. 18-cv-07143
was filed on August 8, 2018, and has been assigned to Judge John
Fontaine Keenan.

The lawsuit focuses on whether the Company and its executives violated
federal securities laws by: (i) recklessly disregarding its readiness
for and the true risks of privacy related regulations and policies
including the European General Data Protection Regulation ("GDPR") on
its current and future financial and growth prospects; (ii) failing to
disclose that its financial performance was far more dependent on
Facebook and other third-party large data set providers than previously
revealed and that privacy policy changes affected the scope and terms of
access Nielsen would have to third-party data; and (iii), failing to
disclose that access to Facebook and other third-party provider data was
becoming increasingly restricted for Nielsen and Nielsen clients.

Specifically, on July 26, 2018, the Company announced disappointing
financial results for the second quarter 2018. Nielsen blamed the
results, in part, on the negative impact that the GDPR had on the
Company's access to large data sets provided by partners like Facebook
and stated further that "[o]ur results are significantly below our
expectations as revenues were impacted by GDPR and changes to the
consumer data privacy landscape."

Following this announcement, Nielsen's share price fell from $29.57 on
July 25, 2018 to $22.11 on July 26, 2018—a $7.46 or 25.23% drop.

The court-appointed lead plaintiff is the investor with the largest
financial interest in the relief sought by the class who is adequate and
typical of class members who directs and oversees the litigation on
behalf of the putative class. Any member of the putative class may move
the Court to serve as lead plaintiff through counsel of their choice, or
may choose to do nothing and remain an absent class member. Your ability
to share in any recovery is not affected by the decision to serve as a
lead plaintiff or not.

Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP also encourages anyone with information regarding
Nielsen's conduct to contact the firm, including whistleblowers, former
employees, shareholders and others.
