PR measurement giants Cision and Meltwater are planning to merge, reports Business Insider, “and the Justice Department’s antitrust division has probed the potential tie-up of the two biggest PR software companies, asking how the deal might affect competition and pricing in PR software, multiple sources said.

“Three people said the Justice Department contacted them in early summer, asking about the PR software industry, how a potential merger of Cision and Meltwater would affect their competitors, and if they believed it would raise prices for their customers.

“Cision declined to comment. Meltwater and the Justice Department didn’t respond to requests for comment by press time.”
