Integration of TNS

Following the acquisition of TNS in October 2008, the custom business of TNS has been combined with Research International and its 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 and, as a result of actions taken since acquisition, as at 31 December 2010, the Group achieved the revised merger benefits target of an annualised £60 million, as opposed to the original commitment of £52 million.
