WPP’s Kantar acquires Press Index (USA)

WPP announces that its wholly-owned operating network Kantar, the information, insight and consultancy group, has completed its acquisition of 1,446,139 shares, representing 87.76% of the share capital of Press Index (NYSE Alternext: ALPRI) (“Press Index”).

As a next step, Kantar will launch a simplified cash public tender offer to purchase the remaining outstanding shares of Press Index.
