Altice reconfirms its offer to combine SFR and Numericable

(Thomson Reuters ONE Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) 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.
