NMR looks good except for the huge Short Term Debt balance of 225 million. This compares to total current assets of 225 million. Who knows something about this?

This is what's left of $300 million that Nielsen borrowed and then gave to IMS Health (RX) as part of the spin off deal. This left NMR with the debt, and hopefully the cash flow to pay it off. Despite the debt, NMR is in a great position as the only major player in TV ratings. In addition, they have an alliance with NetRatings to measure Internet usage. They said recently that they are on schedule for a next month launch of Nielsen NetRatings Internet measurement panel. This is a potential new revenue source for NMR.
P.S. I am long NMR.
