The Federal Trade Commission is taking more time to review Nielsen’s planned acquisition of Arbitron.

The latest 30-day review period ran out last week. Nielsen says it’s agreed to extend the regulatory review period of the $1.26 billion Arbitron deal into September.

The transaction was first announced last December.

Nielsen says the regulatory process “continues to progress” and the media ratings firm “continues to be confident in the ultimate outcome.”
