    Italy moves to rein in Vivendi's influence over Telecom Italia

    ROME/MILAN (Reuters) - Italy told Telecom Italia (TLIT.MI) on Monday that it wants to have a say in all its strategic decisions, in the strongest sign so far that Rome intends to rein in the growing influence of French group Vivendi over the former state monopoly. Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni signed a decree activating the so-called "golden power" on Telecom Italia (TIM) after Vivendi (VIV.PA), now TIM's biggest investor with a 24 percent stake, tightened its grip on the company.

The new rules on takeovers signals protectionist sentiment is on the rise in Italy after years of relatively open approach to foreign acquisitions which French companies, in particular, have taken advantage of.

    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.

    Vivendi offers compensation to settle dispute with Mediaset: sources

    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.

    Mediaset and Vivendi in contact over pay-TV dispute - source

    Italian broadcaster Mediaset and French media group Vivendi (VIV.PA) have opened lines of communication to find a solution to a bitter legal dispute, a source close to the matter said on Monday, as shares in the Italian company rose sharply. The two companies have been at loggerheads since Vivendi backtracked last year on a deal to buy Mediaset's (MS.MI) pay-TV unit Premium. The rift deepened when Vivendi built up a 28.8 percent stake in Mediaset last December in a move which the French group said was not hostile but a sign of long-term interest.

Vivendi said Thursday's raid was the result of an "unfounded and unjust complaint" by former Italian prime minister Silvio Berlusconi, whose holding company Fininvest lodged a criminal complaint last December alleging market manipulation against Vivendi.

    Telecom Italia chairman keeps open mind about possible network spin-off

    Telecom Italia (TIM) (TLIT.MI) chairman Arnaud de Puyfontaine is keeping an open mind about possibly separating its fixed-line network, he said on Thursday, a move favoured by some Italian government officials. The strategy of Italy's biggest phone group has become a hot topic among investors after French media company Vivendi (VIV.PA), TIM's largest shareholder, tightened its grip on the firm and appointed one of its top executives as TIM's CEO. Politicians in Rome have also become increasingly concerned about Vivendi's influence over TIM, which is considered a strategic company.

    'Spinal Tap' lawsuit against Vivendi can proceed, U.S. court says

    The creators of the 1984 cult mockumentary "This is Spinal Tap" can proceed with their lawsuit against Vivendi after the media giant's motion to dismiss the case was partially rejected, a U.S. court said on Thursday. Harry Shearer, best known for his voiceovers in "The Simpsons", sued Vivendi in February for $125 million (93.48 million pounds)of profits from the movie that he alleges he is owed. The three other co-creators, Christopher Guest, Michael McKean and Rob Reiner, then joined the complaint, bringing the total claim to $400 million.

    GLOBAL MARKETS-Stocks rise as U.S. jobs data seen denting rate hike chances

    Wall Street stocks rose on Friday, boosting an index of global equity markets close to a record high, after data showed U.S. job growth slowed more than expected in August, which could make the Federal Reserve cautious about raising interest rates again this year. Traders in currency and bond markets, however, viewed the data as not soft enough to completely rule out another rate hike by the U.S. central bank this year. The dollar climbed and Treasury yields rose.

    GLOBAL MARKETS-Dollar, Wall Street futures make quick recovery from soft U.S. jobs data

    The dollar, Wall Street futures and benchmark bond yields were quick to recover from an initial flinch on Friday, after weaker-than-expected U.S. jobs data disappointed on a number of fronts. Headline jobs growth slowed more than expected in August, the data showed after two straight months of strong gains, while average hourly earnings rose three cents, or 0.1 percent, versus forecasts of 0.2 percent. The pace of the headline increase should still be enough, though, to keep the Federal Reserve on course to start reducing the massive portfolio of bonds it bought up to help the U.S. economy through the financial crisis, analysts said.

    France's Havas (LSE: 0MGT.L - news) said on Friday it could not confirm its forecast of organic growth of 2-3 percent for 2017, as declining investment from advertisers, increasing margin pressure and a downturn in high-growth markets weighed on first-half revenue. "Havas' financial performance in the first half of 2017 suffered a slowdown which affected the industry as a whole and led to revenue and profitability below our expectations," Chief (Taiwan OTC: 3345.TWO - news) Executive Yannick Bollore said in a statement. Havas has not only seen spending decrease in the consumer goods sector, but also in the telecoms and automotive sectors, Yannick Bollore said during a call.

    Open Fiber head says well-placed to buy Telecom Italia's network

Italian politicians have been calling on and off since 2006 for the 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.

    Publicis reports underlying sales growth in Q2, beating expectations

    France's Publicis (Paris: FR0000130577 - news) said on Thursday it regained a little traction in the second quarter, driven by a surge in revenue in its biggest regional market, North America. The Paris-based group has gone through an internal reorganisation over the last 18 months, dubbed "The Power of One", aimed at fostering greater cooperation between its myriad agencies and is strongly backed by the newly-appointed chief executive Arthur Sadoun. Sadoun, 46, replaced company veteran Maurice Levy last month and shocked the industry by announcing Publicis would skip all major ad award events for a year to focus on the creation of a sophisticated internal network, built by Sapient, the ad firm it acquired for $3.7 billion.
