Nielsen Holdings is boosting its presence in emerging countries as it announced increasing the scope of its contract with TCS in India. The deal was earlier valued at $1 billion and now has been raised to $2.5 billion. The term of the contract has also been extended by three years.

Nielsen Holdings N.V. announced the secondary offering of its shares. The company will be issuing a minimum of 35 million shares under the offer and expects to generate $1.2 billion in cash from it. However, the funds will not accrue to the company but will instead go to its existing shareholders. The issue priced at $32.55 failed to generate much buzz. However, the company still has strong fundamentals, a good track record and its stock is expected to keep performing well.

Thomson Reuters Announces Layoffs

Thomson Reuters had an unexpected problem to deal with as it inadvertently leaked out the details about Office Max and Office Depot deal. The glitch, though embarrassing, is not likely to have material impact on the company's reputation. Thomson Reuters Corporation, however, is not going to be very popular with its employees either as it plans to slash 2,500 jobs. The step is being taken to curtail costs and boost profitability. The layoffs would cost $100 million in severance costs but will be accretive in the long-term. Register now to download the free research on Thomson Reuters Corp. at  

Thomson Reuters reported its fourth quarter EPS at 60 cents per share, up 11.11 percent from 54 cents per share EPS it had reported for the corresponding quarter of the last year. It also beat consensus estimate of 55 cents per share. Thomson Reuters, however, missed the projection for revenue and reported 6.12 percent decline to $3.36 billion. However, the stock is in good swing and gained 2.5 percent so far this year. The company also offers good dividend yield of 4.30 percent and is a good candidate for an income portfolio.
