Nielsen Holdings is breaking apart—a huge step for the company, known for tracking TV shows’ popularity—yet investors aren’t impressed.
Moody's Investors Service ("Moody's") said Nielsen Holdings plc's Ba3 Corporate Family Rating (CFR), existing debt ratings and negative outlook are not immediately impacted by today's announcement that it intends to spin off its Global Connect business ("Connect") into a new publicly traded entity to Nielsen's shareholders. The spin-off is credit positive because: (i) Nielsen would be divesting a lower margin asset that has historically experienced flat to negative organic revenue growth trends (on a constant currency basis), though recent trends have demonstrated modest improvement; (ii) Nielsen reduced its quarterly cash dividend, which will improve its free cash flow generation for debt reduction (free cash flow defined as cash flow from operations less capex less dividends); and (iii) Connect plans to raise new debt upon separation, with proceeds to be distributed to Nielsen RemainCo, which it plans to use for debt repayment.

Shares of Nielsen Holdings PLC surged 4.5% in premarket trading Thursday, after the media measurement company reported third-quarter earnings that topped expectations, but also said it was slashing its dividend by 83% and plans to spin off its Global Connect business to create two independent publicly traded companies. Nielsen swung to a net loss of $472 million, or $1.33 a share, from net income of $96 million, or 27 cents a share, in the year-ago period.
