    Last month, activist hedge fund Elliott Management said it had taken an 8.4% stake in Nielsen, valued at around $660 million at the time, and would push the company to look into strategic options including a sale, The Wall Street Journal reported. Nielsen’s board said Wednesday that it had expanded the scope of its previously announced strategic review and would consider a broader range of options, including whether to take the company private, separate its “buy” or “watch” segments or explore a sale of the company. Nielsen’s “buy” segment has become a particularly sore spot.
