Mediaset bars Vivendi holding from AGM, receives interest in MFE project

Monday 29 June 2020 | 09:30 CET | News
Mediaset has once again prevented the trust that holds the majority of Vivendi's stake in the Italian broadcaster to vote at its annual shareholder meeting. Over 19 percent of Vivendi's 29 percent stake in Mediaset is held in a trust called Simon Fiduciaria following a decision from Italian communications watchdog Agcom that excluded the holding from voting at several shareholder meetings, including those held to approve plans to merge its Italian and Spanish units under the MediaforEurope (MFE) entity.
