Therefore neither GVT nor SFR, nor Maroc Telecom group, nor Activision Blizzard were included in revenues, income from operations, EBIT, EBITA, and adjusted net income. Their respective contributions to earnings attributable to Vivendi SA shareowners as well as any capital gains were recorded under the line “Earnings from discontinued operations”.
