(Reuters) - Canadian private equity company Onex Corp OCX.TO said it will buy TV ratings firm Nielsen Holdings N.V.'s (NLSN.N: Quote) expositions business for $950 million.

Nielsen Expositions is an operator of large, business-to-business tradeshows in the United States.

In March, Reuters reported Nielsen Holdings was in the early stages of selling its expositions business.
