Quebecor calls on regulator to reject Bell acquisition of V

Thursday 13 February 2020 | 14:04 CET | News
The company repeated the deal would have a negative impact on an "already fragile broadcasting system." Quebecor CEO Pierre Karl Peladeau said V was the "missing piece" in Bell's portfolio of media properties and that it would strengthen the company's dominance on the Canadian media market and on advertising revenues. Peladeau said Bell would control more than 48 percent of private conventional TV advertising revenues and 43 percent of total ad revenues should the deal go through.
