Judge gives Mediaset, Vivendi until 29 November to reach settlement

Monday 25 November 2019 | 09:11 CET | News
Mediaset confirmed that a Milan judge has given the Italian broadcaster and its shareholder Vivendi another week to end a longstanding legal conflict over plans to set up a Dutch-based entity called MediaForEurope (MFE). "At the request of the parties [the court] has postponed the hearing to 29 November 2019 to further examine the possibilities for conciliation of the issue," said Mediaset in a statement. France's Vivendi has asked the court to freeze Mediaset's plans to merge its domestic and Spanish businesses into MFE to give the companies more time to reach a possible settlement.
