BALA CYNWYD, Pa.--(Business Wire)--
Law office of Brodsky & Smith, LLC announces that it is investigating potential
claims against the Board of Directors of Arbitron, Inc. ("Arbitron" or the
"Company") (NYSE: ARB) relating to the proposed acquisition by Nielsen Holdings
N.V.A. ("Nielsen"). 

Under the terms of the transaction, Arbitron shareholders will receive only
$48.00 in cash for each share of Arbitron stock they own. The investigation
concerns possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of state law
by the Board of Directors of Arbitron for not acting in the Company`s
shareholders' best interests in connection with the sale process to Nielsen. The
focus of the investigation is whether the Arbitron Board of Directors breached
their fiduciary duties by failing to conduct an adequate and fair sales process
prior to agreeing to this proposed transaction. The transaction includes various
deal protections including a $32.7 million termination fee, which may prevent a
superior offer from being made. 

If you own shares of Arbitron stock and wish to discuss the legal ramifications
of the proposed transaction, or have any questions, you may e-mail or call the
law office of Brodsky & Smith, LLC who will, without obligation or cost to you,
