Vivendi (VIVHY), as previously disclosed, received binding offers from Telefonica (TEF) on August 4 and 28 and Telecom Italia (TI) on August 28 to acquire GVT. "In the light of the Groupís strategy and in the best interests of its shareholders, the Supervisory Board decided to enter into exclusive negotiations with Telefonica while emphasizing the relevance and quality of the Telecom Italia offer. The divestment from GVT would allow selling the last telecom company wholly-owned by Vivendi after the disposals of Maroc Telecom and SFR. Telefonicaís offer is considered particularly attractive, generating a capital gain of more than EUR 3B. The other conditions of the offer, limiting to a strict minimum the risk of executing the operation as well as Vivendiís commitments after the sale, are totally in line with Vivendiís objectives. The agreement between Telefonica and Vivendi would allow the development of joint projects in ​​content and media. In addition, if it so wish, Vivendi could become a shareholder in Telecom Italia by exchanging its Brazilian shares for Italian ones. The Telefonica offer best meets the Groupís strategic and financial objectives," Vivendi stated.
