(ADSs) 
NEW YORK, Dec. 10, 2012 /CNW/ - The following statement is being issued by 
Abbey Spanier Rodd & Abrams, LLP regarding the Vivendi Universal, S.A. 
Securities Litigation. 
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT, SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF NEW YORK 
IN RE VIVENDI UNIVERSAL, S.A. SECURITIES LITIGATION, Civil Action, No. 02 Civ. 
5571, (SAS/HBP) ECF Case 
SUMMARY NOTICE TO CLASS MEMBERS 
To:  All persons from the United States, France, England and the Netherlands 
who purchased or otherwise acquired American Depositary Shares ("ADSs" or 
"ADRs") of Vivendi Universal, S.A., ("Vivendi") between October 30, 2000 and 
August 14, 2002 ("Class Members"). 
This is a Court-approved notification of the jury verdict holding defendant 
Vivendi liable in this case.  The jury verdict also found that two former 
senior officers of Vivendi, Jean-Marie Messier and Guillaume Hannezo, did not 
violate the securities laws and are not liable on any of the claims asserted 
against them.  If you are a Class Member, you are entitled to file a claim for 
damages.  The deadline for filing of claims is May 9, 2013.  You may obtain a 
Claim Form and other information at www.vivendiclassaction.com or by calling 
1-800-767-2840 toll-free.  Vivendi will appeal the jury verdict and other 
aspects of the case, and the result is not final. 
Attorneys for the plaintiffs ("Class Counsel") intend to file an application 
for an award of attorneys' fees and reimbursement of their nontaxable costs 
and expenses, to be paid out of the damages awarded to Class Members.  Only 
amounts approved by the Court will be awarded.  Class Counsel will request an 
award of attorneys' fees of up to one-third of the amount of any damages and 
prejudgment interest payable to the Class.  The Court will set a hearing on 
the application after the conclusion of the claims procedure.  Relevant 
deadlines, the hearing date, and other documents will be posted at 
www.vivendiclassaction.com.
