PARIS, May 3 (Reuters) - Italian broadcaster Mediaset and its second-largest investor, Vivendi, on Monday announced a deal that will see the French company sell the entire Mediaset equity stake held through Simon Fiduciaria.
The agreement ends a long-running dispute and waives all litigation and claims between them, the two companies said in a joint statement.
Vivendi and Mediaset had entered a good neighborhood agreement in free-to-air television and standstill commitments for a five-year term, they added.
The closing of the settlement is due on July 22. (Reporting by Benoit Van Overstraeten; Editing by Richard Lough and Leslie Adler)
