French stock market regulator AMF (Autorite des Marches Financiers) has ruled against Altice's public exchange offer for its subsidiary SFR Group, which was announced in early September.

In a statement, Altice acknowledged the ruling, stating that it reserves the right to file an appeal against the decision with the Paris Court of Appeal.
