Vivendi: Improved Revenue Growth in the Third Quarter Of 2020

VIV

SHARE BUYBACK PROGRAM. Since January 1, 2020, Vivendi repurchased 58.4 million of its own shares (i.e., 4.92% of its share capital), representing €1,368 million, including 23.02 million shares under the previous buyback program and 35.35 million shares under the current program. As of October 19, 2020, Vivendi holds 62.3 million treasury shares, representing 5.25% of the share capital, of which 46.2 million shares are allocated to cancellation, 7.5 million shares allocated to covering performance share plans, and 8.6 million shares are held to back sales to employees and corporate officers (under employee shareholding plans). Havas Group is stepping up its efforts, initiated at the outset of the crisis, to adjust its organization and cost structure to limit the impact of falling revenues on EBITA. As a result of this agility, the pay-off from the cost- adjustment plan will enable Havas Group to absorb over half of the decline in its revenues over full-year. The strength of the market’s recovery has helped mitigate much of the negative impact of the containment and closure of a large part of the publishing sector's points of sale on sales. Since June 2020, the market has been growing every month compared to 2019.

Vivendi plans to keep buying Lagardere shares

VIV

Oct 2 (Reuters) - Vivendi plans to keep buying shares in Lagardere and is open to acquiring activist fund Amber Capital's stake in the company, which could trigger a tender offer for the rest of the Lagardere's stock, Vivendi said in a filing on Friday. Amber and Vivendi are seeking board representation at Lagardere and are calling for a shareholders' meeting, which Lagardere, led by the founder's heir Arnaud Lagardere, has so far flatly refused. "Vivendi intends to continue its purchases (of shares) ... including through the exercise ... of the rights of first offer and pre-emption granted by Amber Capital," the Paris-based group said in a statement to French markets regulator AMF. "Vivendi doesn't intend to take control of Lagardere," the group said in the same statement, but added that if it were in a position to be able to buy Amber's shares, it would fulfil the obligation of making a bid for all Lagardere's shares.

Mediaset, Vivendi seek compromise to revive European growth plan - sources

VIV

MILAN (Reuters) - Mediaset <MS.MI> and its second largest investor Vivendi <VIV.PA> are working on a potential deal to end a long-running legal row and revive the Italian broadcaster's European growth strategy, two sources close to the matter said. Controlled by the family of former Italian prime minister Silvio Berlusconi, Mediaset had been targeting expansion in Europe to cope with stiffer competition in the industry from streaming services such as Netflix <NFLX.O>. But Vivendi's opposition has forced Mediaset to freeze plans to create a Dutch holding company to pursue alliances in Europe. The two groups have been locked in a fight since 2016 when Vivendi ditched an accord to buy Mediaset's pay-TV unit and built a 29% stake which Mediaset considers hostile. Mediaset Espana shares were also up 3%, while shares in ProSieben gained as much as 7% on Tuesday after Italian daily Il Messaggero reported that a potential deal may entail Mediaset raising its stake in the German group, which has so far shunned the prospect of closer integration.

Italian watchdog needs more time to review decision on Vivendi's stake in Mediaset

VIV

U.S. Italian watchdog needs more time to review decision on Vivendi's stake in Mediaset. (Reuters) - Italy's communication watchdog AGCOM needs more time to complete a review of a decision it made forcing France's Vivendi (VIV.PA) to forfeit most of its stake in Italy's top commercial broadcaster Mediaset (MS.MI), two sources said on Wednesday. The EU court decision prompted AGCOM to start a review of its decision to curb Vivendi's stake in Mediaset, which is controlled by the family of former Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi. Last week the authority asked the Italian state lawyer's office for an opinion on the case which was then discussed during a meeting on Wednesday, sources said. But the authority did not reach a conclusion yet as it needs more time to evaluate the opinion given the complexity of the case, the sources said, adding a decision could come as soon as next week.

Timeline: Twists and turns in Mediaset vs Vivendi TV drama

VIV

(Reuters) - Mediaset (MS.MI) was ready to discuss ideas to develop its business with France's Vivendi, a top executive at the Italian broadcaster said on Wednesday, a sign that an end may be in sight to a dispute with its second largest investor. Mediaset and Vivendi have been at odds since 2016 when the French conglomerate pulled out of an 800 million euro agreement to buy Mediaset's loss-making pay-TV unit. April 2016 - Vivendi agrees to buy Mediaset's Premium pay-TV business, billed as a major step in billionaire businessman Vincent Bollore's plan to build a southern European content and video-on-demand powerhouse. Italy's communication regulator orders Vivendi, which is also the top shareholder in Telecom Italia (TLIT.MI), to cut its stake in either the telecoms group or Mediaset within a year to comply with rules designed to prevent a concentration of power.
