TELECOM ITALIA, VIVENDI

Vivendi notified the Italian government on Friday about its holding in Telecom Italia as required by the authorities, a source close to the matter said.

According to Il Sole 24 Ore on Sunday, a plan being studied to end the standoff between Vivendi and the government would include dividing TIM in two companies: one owning TIM’s network, Sparkle and Telsi and the other offering TIM’s commercial services. State holding CDP would take a stake in the network company.
