The acquisition of 100% control of telecom operator SFR will bring Vivendi some Â2 billion in supplementary profits in four years, according to chief executive Jean-Bernard LÃ©vy, interviewed at the end of last week by Le Figaro newspaper.
LÃ©vy said that Vivendi had not reopened talks with LagardÃ¨re over the possible purchase of its stake in Canal Plus France, following the latterÂs interruption of its proposed IPO of the 20% stake. LÃ©vy also said that Vivendi did not intend to become a Âdumb pipeÂ provider, but to be an actor in all parts of the digital content and delivery chain. He pointed out that Vivendi was well-placed to deliver content to the digital consumer via World of Warcraft in the case of video games, Vevo in digital music and Canalsat in TV.
