PARIS May 15 French media and telecoms group
Vivendi said on Thursday it was positioned for growth
focusing on media and content after the sale of its SFR telecoms
unit as it reported first-quarter sales in line with forecasts.
Sales for the first three months of the year came in at
2.722 billion euros, up 2 percent organically and at constant
currencies, in line with a Thomson Reuters consensus forecast.
EBITA was 268 million euros, up 2.8 percent from a year ago
on a constant currency and continuing businesses basis -
excluding SFR activities and euro weakness. Including those
factors, it was down 11.2 percent.
