Integration of TNS

Following the acquisition of TNS in October 2008, the Custom business of TNS has been combined with Research International and other operations merged with several of the Kantar businesses to form Kantar Media, Kantar Worldpanel, Kantar Retail and Kantar Health. The integration has gone well so far and, although not complete, our increased estimates of synergy benefits are being met and in fact being added to. As a result of actions taken since acquisition, as at 31 December 2009, gross synergies (annualised synergy benefits before costs of achieving these benefits) exceeded £40 million. The Group is on track to achieve the revised merger benefits target of an annualised £60 million or more in 2011, as opposed to the original commitment of £52 million.
