So the deal is now done: VNU has bought CMP’s lossmaking French and UK businesses from United News & Media for the pathetic sum of $4 million. The divestiture of these businesses will "also result in considerable savings for CMP", according to United News & Media. It is shutting down Windows Magazine in the States, and integrating certain CMP back office functions with its Miller Freeman sub(this is a euphemism for clerical lay-offs), as part of its move to save $40 million annually from the profligate American publisher.
