Vivendi Considering Corporate RestructuringPosted 30 April 2012 by Flux
Bloomberg provides financial news about Activision/Blizzard’s parent company, Vivendi.
One option under discussion is to split the Paris-based company into two, with one part incorporating media assets such as Universal Music Group and video-game maker Activision Blizzard Inc. (ATVI), said the people, who asked not to be identified because the deliberations are private. The other would include Vivendi’s telecommunications and content distribution units, they said, adding that the internal review is at an early stage.
This hypothetical restructuring wouldn’t seem likely to have much (if any) impact on Blizzard’s operations, as ATVI operates more or less independently of the French parent company, and its numerous other holdings.
