Vivendi arranges early refinancing of a €1 billion credit line

Vivendi has just completed the refinancing of a 3-year credit line for €1 billion, which would normally have matured on 29 February 2011. This credit line will be replaced in September 2010 by new financing for the same amount and for a 5 year term (maturing in September 2015).
This refinancing has been set up on excellent terms with more than ten banks. It will enable Vivendi to reinforce its financial security.
