Italian judge postpones decision on Mediaset merger plan until 21 Jan

Tuesday 10 December 2019 | 08:56 CET | News
A Milan judge will not be issuing a decision on Vivendi's request to block Mediaset's pan-European television project until 21 January 2020, confirmed the two companies in separate statements. They had been given until the end of November to reach an agreement over the Italian broadcaster's plan to set up a Dutch-based entity called MediaForEurope (MFE) but failed, with Mediaset subsequently requesting a postponement until after a shareholders' meeting scheduled for 10 January to vote on a number of proposed amendments proposed by the court to respond to Vivendi's claims.
