The transaction, which is subject to regulatory approvals, is set to be completed by Dec. 15, 2022.

If the acquisition goes through, Vivendi will hold 45.1% of Lagardere's share capital and a mandatory proposal for a public offer for all of the company's remaining shares will be filed with the French market authority.
