Groupe Express-Roularta SA Key Developments

Express-Roularta Attracts Bidders

Roularta Media Group NV (ENXTBR:ROU) intends to sell Groupe Express-Roularta SA. Vivendi Société Anonyme (ENXTPA:VIV) and a team comprising Patrick Drahi, Marc Laufer and Le Figaro are interested in the acquisition, Le Monde wrote on December 17, 2014. “Media rumors have evoked the notion in other groups that we are and they contacted us. We shall study the proposals to find out if there are serious ones among them but we exclude nothing, including the option to go on alone”, Le Monde quoted Roularta Rik de Nolf saying. None from the group of individuals targets to buy the whole business, according to a source close to the matter. In fact, Drahi and Laufer are bidding for L'Express and L'Expansion, while Le Figaro would take the rest of the group’s businesses, including L'Etudiant, Point de vue, Studio Cine Live, Cote Maison, Mieux vivre votre argent. According to de Nolf, there are other groups that have also shown interest in acquiring the business but for the time being Vivendi and the Drahi-Laufer-Le Figaro team seem to be the most serious candidates, according to Le Monde. The daily cites de Nolf defining media leakage that the business is being sold for around €25 million as “ridiculous rumors”.

Roularta Media Group NV (ENXTBR:ROU) is looking to sell Groupe Express-Roularta SA, including magazines L'Express, L'Expansion, L'Etudiant and Point de Vue, for dozens of million of euro and four or five candidates are on the list.
