Orange Buckled to Government Pressure On Dailymotion

Orange (ENXTPA:ORA) had agreed to sell a minority stake in Dailymotion SA to PCCW Limited (SEHK:8); before deciding to sell a majority stake to its compatriot Vivendi Société Anonyme (ENXTPA:VIV), Charles Brown, the head of Lake House Group, told the Financial Times. Charles Brown and PCCW chairman Richard Li considered sweetening their offer to €280 million from €250 million to reflect the controlling stake, but when they were told that a April 17, 2015 deadline for final bids had been brought forward by ten days, they stepped away. Vivendi won with an offer that valued Dailymotion at €265 million.

Vivendi Confirms Interest In Buying Orange’s Dailymotion

Vivendi Société Anonyme (ENXTPA:VIV) has confirmed that it wants to acquire Dailymotion SA currently owned by Orange (ENXTPA:ORA). Vivendi entered into exclusive negotiations to acquire 80% Dailymotion for €217 million. Orange will retain a 20% stake. This is subject to the necessary information consultation meetings with employee representative organizations. Orange will use the proceeds of this transaction to finance and reinforce its efforts in the digital ecosystem. Lazard Ltd. acted as the financial advisor to Orange.

Vivendi Reportedly Offers €250 Million For Dailymotion

Vivendi Société Anonyme (ENXTPA:VIV) has offered €250 million ($275.80 million) to acquire Dailymotion SA from Orange (ENXTPA:ORA), Le Monde reported. PCCW Limited (SEHK:8) has ended talks to form an alliance with Dailymotion. "The French government's preferred search for a European solution discourages international companies' participation," PCCW said. The report stated that Vivendi's offer would be discussed at a board meeting on April 7, 2015. "Vivendi's ambition is to make Dailymotion a world size player," Le Monde quoted an unidentified source as saying.
