    Exclusive-Vivendi-Lagardere deal faces full-scale EU antitrust probe -sources

    Media group Vivendi's proposed acquisition of rival Lagardere is likely to face a full-scale EU antitrust investigation, people close to the matter said on Tuesday. The proposed deal would combine France's two biggest publishing groups, Lagardere's Hachette and Vivendi's Editis, and has come in for criticism from rivals including Gallimard. To resolve European Union antitrust concerns, Vivendi's top investor - billionaire Vincent Bollore - would sell all Editis shares he would receive after the transaction, which would consist of a simultaneous distribution of the publishing unit's shares to Vivendi shareholders and its listing.
