VNU to shareholders: Take buyout offer

VNU is looking to sell but it has to convince its shareholders to do so. The company is more well known in Europe than it is here but they are publishers of a number of trade magazines and also controls the plug the powers the servers running popular blog Silicon Valley Sleuth.

VNU has made a number of acquisitions of its own in the past few months buying up such IT titles as “Inquirer” and some healthcare titles as well.

Just fattening themselves up before the slaughter, perhaps?
