    Ruling delays Telecom Italia board showdown with Elliott

    A judge ruled in favour of an appeal by Telecom Italia (TIM) and its leading investor Vivendi to block a vote on some board director replacements proposed by activist fund Elliott at an April 24 shareholders meeting, a court document showed. The activist fund has built a stake of 9 percent in TIM to try to shake up the way Vivendi has been running Italy's biggest phone group. Elliott and the French investor were meant to face off for the first time at the Tuesday shareholder meeting, although the two have been in a heated exchange for weeks.

    Elliott stops proxy solicitation for Telecom Italia AGM given uncertainty caused by legal action

    Elliott said it had stopped soliciting proxies for Telecom Italia's (TIM) (TLIT.MI) April 24 shareholder meeting due to the uncertainty that arose after the phone group asked a judge to rule on additions to the AGM proposed by the activist investor. Elliott, now TIM's second-largest investor with a 9 percent stake, is pushing for a shake-up of the way Vivendi has been running the Italian phone incumbent. It is seeking to replace six of Vivendi-nominated board members at a shareholder meeting on Tuesday to improve governance, valuation and strategy.

    Vivendi SA's annual meeting lasted two hours, 26 minutes and 31 seconds. To find the moment where chairman Vincent Bollore anoints son Yannick his successor, you have to fast forward to the final 30 seconds. After a brief preamble where Bollore Pere announces it would be his last AGM, and recounts an anecdote about Louis XIV waiting too long to pass control to his son, he revealed the board and corporate governance committee would vote on the nomination shortly.

    Hedge fund Elliott turns up heat on Vivendi over Telecom Italia

    Activist fund Elliott turned up the volume in its war of words with Vivendi (VIV.PA) over the French media group's defence of its strategy for Telecom Italia (TIM) (TLIT.MI), only days before a fight for board seats at Italy's biggest phone group.

    Billionaire Bollore anoints son Yannick as new Vivendi chairman

    Vivendi (VIV.PA)'s top investor Vincent Bollore stunned shareholders and board members on Thursday by anointing his son Yannick as chairman only days before the company faces a crucial showdown in Italy. The 66-year-old billionaire, chairman since 2014, made the announcement at the end of the French media giant's annual general meeting, capping a tumultuous period in which he launched an acquisition spree in France and Italy before becoming embroiled in a shareholder battle with U.S. activist fund Elliott over the leadership of Telecom Italia (TLIT.IT). Bollore, who remains on Vivendi's board, has repeatedly said he would hand over the different activities of his conglomerate in 2022, 200 years after the foundation of the family-run group.
