PARIS, April 25 French tycoon Vincent Bollore
said on Tuesday that he had received the go-ahead from European
authorities on the fact that he now has 'sole control', via his
family-run conglomerate, of media giant Vivendi.
This means that Bollore, who is Vivendi's biggest
shareholder and chairman, is in place to get a majority position
at the group's shareholder meetings.
"Group Bollore... received yesterday from Brussels the
authorization to assert that majority," Bollore said, speaking
at Vivendi's annual general meeting in Paris.
