    Telecom Italia CEO calls for talks on network governance with watchdog

    Telecom Italia (TLIT.MI) has called for talks to be tabled with Italian regulators to assess possible governance improvements in the running of its fixed line network, CEO Amos Genish said on Wednesday. The proposal came after a series of meetings between Genish, the heads of Italy's communications and competition watchdogs and the Italian industry minister. Telecom Italia (TIM), whose top shareholder is France's Vivendi (VIV.PA), is under pressure from Italian politicians, regulators and rival firms to separate and upgrade its network.

    Mediaset hopes truce with Vivendi to come with content deal with Telecom Italia - media

    Mediaset's (MS.MI) chief executive said he hoped the shared interest over TV content with Telecom Italia (TIM) (TLIT.MI) could pave the way to a truce with France's Vivendi (VIV.PA), speaking in a interview published late on Sunday. "TIM needs our content, it is very interested in an agreement, but there is a pending matter with their controlling shareholder Vivendi," CEO Pier Silvio Berlusconi told Italian daily Corriere della Sera. Mediaset and Vivendi have engaged in a legal battle since the French group last year unexpectedly backed out of a deal handing it control of the Milan group's pay-TV unit Premium.

    The board of Telecom Italia (TIM) (TLIT.MI) will this week discuss options for its fixed-line network, including possibly splitting it off, although no decision is expected to be made, a source close to the company said on Sunday. The pressure has intensified since French media group Vivendi (VIV.PA), TIM's biggest shareholder with a 24 percent stake, began to exert greater influence, raising concerns within the Italian government, which considers the network a strategic national asset. The source said recently appointed CEO Amos Genish, a former Vivendi top executive, would give an outline of his 2018-2020 business plan to the board on Dec. 5.

    Mediaset shares jump on hopes of Vivendi settlement

    MILAN/PARIS (Reuters) - Hopes for a settlement in a legal dispute between Mediaset (MS.MI) and France's Vivendi (VIV.PA) over a soured pay-TV deal drove shares in the Italian broadcaster as much as 7.5 percent higher on Friday. The two companies have been at loggerheads since last year after Vivendi backtracked on a deal to buy Mediaset Premium, the pay-TV business of a group controlled by the family of former Italian prime minister Silvio Berlusconi. Sources close to the matter have said the two sides are in talks over a possible deal, with Vivendi hoping to reach an agreement before a Dec. 19 court hearing in Milan on the case.

    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.

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.
