19:14 EDTVIVHYVivendi selects the Altice/Numericable offer for SFR
The company said in a press release on its web site: "On its meetings of April 4 and 5, Vivendiís Supervisory Board reviewed the results of the negotiations with Altice/Numericable regarding a combination with SFR as part of a mutually-agreed exclusive period signed on March 14. It also carefully reviewed the offers, as well as letters and documents that the Bouygues Group decided to send to the Supervisory Board during this exclusive period, up until today, in connection with a combination between SFR and Bouygues Telecom. The Supervisory Board was presented with the report from the Special Committee created to examine the different options available to Vivendi. This Committee, assisted by its own advisers, analyzed the Altice/Numericable offers as well as those from the Bouygues Group over eight working sessions held both behind closed doors and in the presence of its advisers . After thorough discussions, the Supervisory Board decided unanimously to select the Altice/Numericable offer which corresponds to the industrial project offering the highest growth potential, generating the highest value for its customers, employees and shareholders, while best meeting Vivendiís objectives... Vivendi selected the most balanced offer between cash upfront and stock participation allowing the group to benefit from the highest total valuation. While pursuing its announced strategy to focus on media, Vivendi wants to support SFR, its 27 year-long subsidiary, by strengthening its industrial and social structure. The Vivendi Supervisory Board has therefore chosen to receive EUR13.5B at closing of the transaction as well as a potential earn-out of EUR750M, with a possibility to sell its 20% stake at a later stage. This should represent a total value in excess of EUR17B. This balance between cash upfront and future upside from industrial value creation fits with Vivendiís philosophy, an industrial and financial group concerned about creating long term value in the interest of shareholders, employees and consumers."
