Court postpones Vivendi's appeal against order to cut Mediaset or TIM stake

Monday 22 January 2018 | 08:43 CET | News
An Italian regional court has announced its intention to postpone the initial hearing of an appeal filed by France's Vivendi against the decision by communications regulator Agcom to reduce its stakes in Telecom Italia and Mediaset. Last April the watchdog told Vivendi to reduce its stake in Telecom Italia or Mediaset to below 10 percent within 12 months or face a fine equivalent to between 2 and 5 percent of its revenues. The regional court's website said the appeal hearing would now be held on 04 July rather than 07 February.
