Nielsen Accussed of PEU Ethics

Courthouse News Service reported:

Nielsen, a "once-noble company," colluded with a former competitor to publish ratings data that had been corrupted by a bribery scheme, a New Delhi-based broadcaster claims in a $580 million lawsuit.

Corrupted, bribery, collusion...those are historical PEU attributes.   Nielsen's PEU owners included KKR, The Blackstone Group, The Carlyle Group, Thomas H. Lee Partners, Alpinvest Partners, Hellman & Friedman and Centerview Partners.
