    Vivendi's music unit UMG worth more than $40 billion, CEO says

    BARCELONA/LONDON (Reuters) - Vivendi's (VIV.PA) Universal Music Group (UMG) could be worth more than $40 billion (£30.3 billion), Chief Executive Arnaud de Puyfontaine said on Friday, helping to buoy shares in the French media group after third-quarter results in which UMG was a highlight. Vivendi has floated the idea that UMG, the world's biggest music label, could be ripe for a stock market listing, boosting the group's shares in recent months amid concerns about its investments in Italy.

    Vivendi misses third-quarter estimates, rules out Ubisoft takeover for now

    LONDON/PARIS (Reuters) - Acquisitive French media conglomerate Vivendi (VIV.PA) missed analysts estimates in third-quarter earnings and ruled out a hostile takeover of Ubisoft for the next six months after the video games maker beat forecasts, pushing its shares to a record high. Vivendi however kept its 2017 outlook for revenue to increase more than 5 percent and for a rise of around 25 percent in its EBITA, prior to its integration of the Havas business. Vivendi's third-quarter EBITA (earnings before interest, tax and amortisation) rose 5.7 percent from a year ago to 293 million euros ($345 million), while its revenue increased by 19.3 percent to 3.18 billion euros.

    Mediaset's directors propose governance changes in battle with Vivendi

    Italian broadcaster Mediaset's (MS.MI) directors proposed on Friday a change in the size of its board and in the way its members are appointed, in a move that could restrict French shareholder Vivendi's (VIV.PA) influence. The Milan-based group, owned by the family of former prime minister Silvio Berlusconi, is suing Vivendi in court after the French media giant last year backtracked on a deal to buy Mediaset's Italian pay-TV unit Premium. The rift between the two groups deepened when Vivendi became Mediaset's second largest shareholder in December last year after quickly amassing a stake of 28.8 percent.

    Telecom Italia earnings hit by litigation, severance costs

    Telecom Italia's (TIM) (TLIT.MI) quarterly results fell short of forecasts, dragged lower by litigation costs and severance payments in a tumultuous year for the former state monopoly. TIM lost its chief executive in July as top shareholder Vivendi (VIV.PA) tightened its grip on the company. Then last month Italy's government, alarmed at the French company's growing influence, activated a "golden power" to have a say in TIM's strategic decisions.

    Telecom Italia's network should be spun off and listed - minister

    Italian Industry Minister Carlo Calenda said on Friday that Telecom Italia's (TIM) (TLIT.MI) fixed-line network should be spun off from the rest of the company and listed. Italian politicians have been calling off and on since 2006 for TIM's network to be transferred to a state-controlled entity as Rome considers it a strategic asset that should be a neutral platform open to all phone companies. The network issue returned to the forefront of political debate when French media group Vivendi (VIV.PA) built a 24 percent stake in TIM, becoming its top investor and increasingly calling the shots at Italy's biggest phone group.

    Italy regulator explores forced Telecom Italia network split: sources

    MILAN/ROME (Reuters) - Italy's communications regulator is considering whether it could force Telecom Italia (TIM) (TLIT.MI) to put its fixed-line network into a separate company to address competition concerns, three sources close to the matter said. Such a move would result in the network becoming a legal entity in its own right, with its own governance and management structure although the company would still be fully controlled by TIM, the sources told Reuters on Friday. Politicians and rival phone companies have long called for TIM to separate its network, but pressure has increased since Rome took issue with the growing influence of French media group Vivendi (VIV.PA), which is its top investor with a 24 percent stake and recently appointed two of TIM's top managers.

    Italy ruling party proposes state role for T.Italia network

    Italy should play a role in resolving the gridlock over Telecom Italia's (TIM) (TLIT.MI) network assets, possibly by involving state lender Cassa Depositi e Prestiti (CDP), the president of the ruling PD party said in a position paper. Italian politicians have been calling on and off since 2006 for TIM's network to be transferred to a state-controlled entity as Rome considers it a strategic asset that should be a neutral platform open to all phone companies. The heavily-indebted company has been criticised for putting off costly upgrades to its ageing copper network and is now facing competition from Open Fiber, jointly controlled by utility Enel (ENEI.MI) and CDP.

    MILAN/PARIS (Reuters) - French media group Vivendi has offered to pay compensation to Mediaset to settle a dispute with the Italian broadcaster over a soured pay-TV deal, three sources close to the matter said on Tuesday. The two companies have been at loggerheads since July last year when Vivendi, in an unexpected U-turn, pulled out of a 800 million euro ($945 million) contract that would have given it full control of Mediaset's pay-TV arm Premium, saying the unit's business plan was unrealistic. One of the sources said Vivendi would pay a first tranche of 250 million euros as part of a wider tentative agreement.
