Vivendi signs definitive agreement on SFR sale after union talks
PARIS (Reuters) - France's Vivendi (VIV.PA) said on Friday it had signed a definitive agreement to sell its telecom unit SFR to cable company Numericable (NUME.PA) after "constructive" talks with labour unions.
The deal, signed between Vivendi, Numericable and Numericable's parent company Altice, would give Vivendi at least 13.5 billion euros ($18.33 billion) in cash plus a 20-percent stake in the new entity.
The closing of the agreement is subject to other conditions, in particular, French antitrust regulator approval.
