Altice reconfirms its offer to combine SFR and Numericable
Paris - March 11, 2014: As previously announced on March 6th, Altice S.A.
(Euronext: ATC) confirms that, on March 5th 2014, it made a fully financed cash
and share offer to Vivendi for a combination of Vivendi's subsidiary SFR and
Numericable. Pursuant to the offer, this combination would involve a payment to
Vivendi in the form of 10.9 billion euros in cash and Numericable shares
representing 32% of the share capital of new Numericable-SFR group.
Our offer remains valid until Friday March 14th 2014.
We believe that this is the most compelling offer for Vivendi and the French
telecommunications market. An SFR/Numericable combination is the only credible
project to bring fibre and very high speed broadband to the entire country,
delivering credible and realizable advantages for employees, consumers and
suppliers in France.
