Implementation of previously announced distributions following the closing of the GVT sale

The closing of the sale of GVT and of the 20% interest in Numericable-SFR enables the Vivendi Management Board to authorize in principle the payment of two interim ordinary dividends, each in the amount of €1 per share, in respect of 2015.

The first interim dividend of €1 per share, to be paid out of the retained earnings available on May 31, 2015, will be paid on June 29, 2015 (ex-distribution date of Thursday, June 25, 2015).

The second interim dividend, which would be taken from distributable income thanks to the positive impact resulting from the GVT and SFR disposals, subject to verification by the Group’s auditors, is expected to be paid on February 3, 2016 (ex-distribution date of Monday, February 1, 2016).

 These distributions are to be added to Vivendi’s existing commitment to pay out a €1 ordinary dividend per share, in both financial years 2016 and 2017.
