Approval for Mediaset European plan

18


Mediaset has received shareholder backing for the merger of its Italian and Spanish interests.

Shareholders voted in favour of the plan that would combine the two centres of operations into a Dutch holding company known as Media for Europe that the Berlusconi family hopes will later see the participation of other European broadcasters.

It already owns 9.9% in the German network ProSiebenSat.1 following a friendly acquisition in June.

Around a fifth of the available votes went against Mediaset, which continues to do battle with the French media concern Vivendi. However, Vivendi was only able to exercise 9.6% of its holding that is directly held in Mediaset by the company and not another 19.4% held in an arm’s length trust following one of many court rulings.

Vivendi has now built an additional 1% share in Mediaset Espana.
