Vivendi now holds over 95% of Gameloft
Vivendi now owns 95.94% of the share capital and 95.77% of the voting rights of Gameloft SE following the closing of the public tender offer reopened from June 2 to 15.
The Autorité des Marchés Financiers (the French market authority, the “AMF”) published the final results of the offer today, indicating that 25,783,122 shares were tendered during the reopening period.
