We are pleased to be able to put this matter to rest.” Other terms of the settlement include the addition of two unaffiliated company directors, payment of reasonable and customary fees and costs of plaintiff’s attorneys by the Company, an adjustment of voting rights and a global release of all claims against the defendants. The October 2013 transaction was approved by Vivendi SA and the company’s board following a recommendation of a Special Committee of independent directors formed by the board to negotiate the transaction on behalf of the company.
