Vivendi's Mediaset trust fails in bid to suspend AGM decisions

Wednesday 28 November 2018 | 08:52 CET | News
Italian broadcaster Mediaset has announced that a Milan court has dismissed a request to suspend two resolutions passed at its shareholder meeting in June. The request was filed by the Simon Fiduciaria trust that holds the majority of Vivendi's stake in Mediaset after it was barred from voting at the Italian broadcaster's 27 June 2018 AGM. As a result, the trust subsequently lodged a complaint requesting that decisions related to stock options and an incentive and retention plan be suspended.
