PARIS, June 09, 2023--Regulatory News: Vivendi today announced that it received approval from the European Commission to proceed with its proposed transaction with Lagardère.
BRUSSELS (Reuters) -Vivendi, the French media conglomerate controlled by billionaire Vincent Bollore, on Friday won conditional EU antitrust approval for its acquisition of France's largest publisher Lagardere. Vivendi last year announced the deal which would give it control of Lagardere's flagship weekly publications Journal du Dimanche (JDD) and Paris Match. The European Commission, which acts as the competition enforcer in the 27-country European Union, said Vivendi agreed to sell its publishing unit Editis and celebrity magazine Gala to address regulatory concerns about the deal.
U.S. fund KKR and a rival consortium comprising state lender CDP and Australian fund Macquarie are readying to submit slightly improved bids for Telecom Italia's (TIM) network ahead of a June 9 deadline, sources said.

KKR and the CDP-led consortium offered 21 billion euros($22.5 billion) and 19 billion euros, respectively, for TIM's domestic landline grid and its submarine unit Sparkle, sources have previously said.

Some TIM directors sent a letter on Friday to urge the company to call a meeting as early as next week to select Luciano Carta to fill a vacant seat on the board, the sources said.

A person close to the French media group said the vote over TIM's pay policy was a clear sign of opposition to Labriola's strategy, adding a change of step as well as a different governance set-up were needed.

Bidders for Telecom Italia's (TIM) landline grid are preparing to raise their offers of around 20 billion euros ($22 billion) by between 1 and 2 billion euros ahead of a Tuesday deadline, three sources close to the matter told Reuters. The sale of Italy's main fixed telecoms network pits U.S. fund KKR, which is already an investor in TIM's grid, against Italian state lender CDP, which has teamed up with infrastructure fund Macquarie. TIM is looking to sell its largest asset as CEO Pietro Labriola seeks to restructure the group, whose debt is rated as "junk" and which faces a steady revenue decline in its hyper-competitive home market.

The pledged sale of Gala would be the latest remedy offered by Vivendi, controlled by billionaire Vincent Bollore, as it seeks to secure the takeover of Lagardere's flagship weekly publications Journal du Dimanche (JDD) and Paris Match.
Telecom Italia's top investor Vivendi has criticised the mechanism to award salary bonus payments for the chief executive and the top management of Italy's biggest phone group, two sources familiar with the matter said on Friday.

The EU competition enforcer last year warned that the deal may reduce competition across the entire book value chain in French-speaking countries in Europe, and also hurt a segment of magazine publishing in France. The Commission, which did not publish details of the remedies in line with its policy, will seek feedback from customers and rivals before deciding whether to accept Vivendi's proposal.
