comScore strengthens audit committee ahead of filing revised accounts

comScore, the US audience measurement company in which WPP has a 19.5% shareholding, has added three recently appointed non–executive directors to the board’s audit committee, one of whom will succeed Rob Korn as chair.

The appointments will be interpreted as a further attempt to reassure investors in advance of publishing embarrassing financial news that is anticipated from a review of past accounting practices. The results of that review have been awaited for some time and most recently have been promised by the latter part of the summer.
