Last week, Mediaset invited Vivendi, which had said it was available to discuss the Italian television group’s European growth plans, to submit concrete proposals to boost activity abroad, as part of a settlement. wider.
In a subsequent letter to the members of the Mediaset board of directors, Vivendi requested a meeting with the group’s executives.
The letter does not, however, offer any plan for a possible agreement between the two groups, two sources said on Tuesday. One of the sources said Vivendi asked Mediaset to come up with a proposal.
Mediaset and Vivendi declined to comment.
Following the failure of the pay-TV operation four years ago, Vivendi took a 29% stake in Mediaset, a decision deemed hostile by the Italian group.
A court case has been pending since, and attempts to reach a broader settlement have so far proved unsuccessful.
