Vivendi: Press release
Following a request from Ms. Colette Neuville, heading an association defending the rights of minority shareholders, a Bailiff attempted to enter into Vivendi’s offices to gain access to certain documents relating to the SFR sale.
After considering the extravagant nature of this procedure, Vivendi’s lawyers have decided to oppose this intrusion and will apply to a judge for a summary judgment.
Vivendi groups together leaders in content, media and telecommunications. Canal+ Group is the French leader in pay-TV, also operating in French-speaking Africa, Poland and Vietnam; its subsidiary Studiocanal is a leading European player in production, acquisition, distribution and international film sales. Universal Music Group is the world leader in music. GVT is a telecoms and media/content distribution in Brazil. In addition, Vivendi owns SFR, a French leader in alternative telecoms.
