    Telecom Italia keen to discuss fiber-to-the-home tie-up with Open Fiber

    Telecom Italia (TIM) is keen to discuss combining the Italian phone group's fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) broadband assets with those of smaller rival Open Fiber, Chief Executive Amos Genish said on Wednesday. In a briefing, Genish said he saw clear economic benefits of such a tie-up, especially given the long timeframe for recouping the costs of multibillion euro investments to bring ultrafast internet to homes in Italy, where demand for speeds of up to 1 gigabyte per second is still very low. A source familiar with the matter later added that TIM had spoken about the idea to the shareholders of Open Fiber, which is jointly owned by state lender Cassa Depositi e Prestiti (CDP) and state-controlled utility Enel.

    Vivendi's ad unit Havas to beef up corporate PR arm

    LONDON/PARIS (Reuters) - Vivendi's advertising division Havas plans to bolster its corporate public relations arm in response to increasing difficulties in the advertising industry, chief executive Yannick Bollore said on Thursday. The company will invest 100 million euros (87.7 million pounds) over the next five years, mostly on acquisitions to strengthen Havas's advisory network AMO, notably in the United States, Spain, Italy and Southeast Asia, he said. Along with bigger European rivals WPP and Publicis, Havas has tried to reposition itself in an advertising environment marked by smaller budgets from big advertisers and the dominance of Facebook and Google on targeted ads online.

    [$$] Telecom Italia Tug-of-War Explained

    SA and activist investor Elliott Management Corp. have been exchanging blows in a prickly battle for influence at the telecommunications company since early 2018. Elliott Advisors, the U.K. arm of Elliott Management, began building a minority stake in Telecom Italia to push for changes to the board and strategy, including a call for the operator to sell part of its network operation and dispose or sell part of subsea cable unit Sparkle. Vivendi, however, said it supported the strategy put forward by Telecom Italia’s chief executive, Amos Genish, and criticized Elliott as taking a short-term view.

    Tycoon Bollore predicts his group will suffer from Africa graft allegations

    French tycoon Vincent Bollore warned investors on Friday that his conglomerate will suffer from the current judicial investigations over allegations of corruption in West Africa - allegations which are denied by his company. Bollore himself, 66, was put under formal investigation in April over those same allegations. Asked about the issue at the Groupe Bollore (BOLL.PA) annual general meeting, Vincent Bollore predicted the legal proceedings will be tedious and detrimental to his company, likening them to France's version of U.S. reality show "Survivor".

Chinese-owned Mediapro won on Tuesday the rights for the top matches of France's main soccer competition for the seasons extending from 2020/2021 to 2023/2024, leaving Vivendi's (VIV.PA)'s pay-TV Canal Plus arm empty-handed.

    Italian stocks stage comeback in recovering European market

    A robust bounceback in Italian stocks helped lift European equities on Wednesday as investors recovered from the previous day's sharp selloff and digested the possibility of a new Italian election as early as July. Italy's FTSE MIB (.FTMIB) index came back from the previous day's losses with a 2.1 percent rise, but the market was still down 2.7 percent so far this week and had given up all the gains made in 2018. Worries that a repeat election could become a de facto referendum on the euro have hit European stocks this week, with Italy's benchmark FTSE MIB (.FTMIB) touching its lowest level since July 2017 on Tuesday.

    Vivendi May Try to Claw Back French Soccer After Upset: Analysts

    The outlook for Vivendi SA’s pay-TV unit Canal+ was dented by the unexpected loss of French soccer league rights from 2020 after Chinese-backed competitor Mediapro took home most of the packages, following an auction that saw prices rise by 60 percent. Canal+ is likely to bid for sub-licensing rights from Mediapro, analysts said, given the importance of the rights to keep customer churn in check and the latter’s lack of a distribution network. The surprise result of the auction may lead to negative sentiment toward French telcos overall, according to Berenberg, while Goldman notes a possibility of a new tender if Mediapro fails to provide necessary guarantees, a similar outcome as in Italy recently.

    Norway's $1 trillion (£748.91 billion) wealth fund voted against a motion at Shell's (RDSa.L) annual meeting urging the energy giant to set climate targets, despite a push the fund is making for more firms to do so. Long-term investors with $10.4 trillion of assets under management, including banks BNP Paribas (BNPP.PA) and HSBC (HSBA.L), had called on Shell to set firm carbon emission targets in line with the 2015 Paris Agreement on climate change. Tuesday's motion was opposed by 95 percent of the company's investors on Tuesday, including the Norwegian fund, whose spokesman said it believed companies were in a better position to set their own targets.

Late on Thursday, Vivendi reported higher first-quarter sales and said it would review a possible change in the shareholding structure of its UMG music division, following two years of speculation about a potential listing.
