AC Nielsen Netherlands, engaged in information and measurement services, has acquired a 51% stake in Czech media agency Mediaresearch, the Czech company said in a statement on its website. The value of the deal was not announced.

The remaining 49% stake in Mediaresearch is owned by UK-based Admosphere Ltd and controlled by Iain Nils Hessey Ruegheimer, Vladimir Komar, Tereza Simeckova and Michal Jordan.
