2016 is off to a great start for Nielsen. CEO, Mitch Barns, and CFO, Jamere Jackson, reported the company’s first-quarter 2016 earnings this week.
“Nielsen’s strong first-quarter results were underpinned by our steady and resilient business model,” said Barns. “This drove constant currency revenue growth, continued margin expansion and strong earnings growth.”
Nielsen’s solid financial performance in the first quarter was fueled by growth in both the Watch and Buy segments with the increasing adoption of Total Audience, as well as significant momentum from emerging markets and retailers.
“The year is off to a strong start and our results are indicative of the consistency and resiliency of the Nielsen model, which continues to deliver solid results through the cycles,” said Jackson. “Coming out of first quarter, we have a lot of confidence and momentum in both of our segments.”
