Vivendi: 2011, a record year for employee capital increase

On July 21 Vivendi completed a capital increase exclusively for employees, as it does every year.

Nearly 11,000 employees took part, both in France and the main countries in which Vivendi operates. The participation rate was 28% globally and 57% in France.

2011 is a record year. There were 25% more participants than in 2010 and the amount subscribed was up by 45% on the previous record, also dating from 2010.

The total contribution amounted to €143 million and 9.38 million new shares were therefore subscribed to, representing 0.75% of the authorized share capital.

Following this operation, employees own about 2.75% of Vivendi’s capital.
