Shareholders welcome Vivendi plans for Telecom Italia

Thursday 21 January 2016 | 11:27 CET | News
Telecom Italia's minority investors association Asati has sent a letter to the Italian government welcoming the assurances given by Vivendi CEO Arnaud de Puyfontaine to the Italian Senate regarding the French media group's plans for the Italian operator, reports Corriere delle Comunicazioni. "The CEO has in fact dispelled some of the concerns raised in the past by Asati, confirming that Telecom Italia has great potential, that Vivendi is a long-term investor and that it's acting in accordance with the government and not on behalf of third parties," said Asati in the letter.
