Vivendi Seeking Activision Buyers

There's more on recent rumors that Vivendi SA is considering selling off its stake in Activision Blizzard on Reuters, where they say that the French telecom giant had decided it will divest itself of the gaming unit. The report indicates that they are gauging interest from those with suitably deep pocketbooks: "Although a formal process has not started, bankers close to Vivendi are sounding out cash-rich trade players, including China's Tencent and U.S. duo Time Warner and Microsoft, as well as private-equity heavyweights KKR, Providence and Blackstone, banking sources said." Reuters got no comment responses about this from Microsoft and Time Warner. Thanks VG247.

I wonder if Acti-Blizz will just buy itself out, or at least the majority of outstanding shares. Oh, wait, I forgot who the CEO is.

Anyone who says that the crash of '83 is going to happen all over again has a very limited knowledge of business and finance. The circumstances are only similar in the vaguest, most stretched reality sense ever.


Guess you have no idea about the causes of the 83 crash then.

Wow, great comeback. In fact, I know a good deal about it, but I refuse to have any sort of discussion with a person who accuses everyone of being a shill when he disagrees with them. You are clearly not worth the time it took me to type this.

Wow, great comeback. Exaggerate much, you wannabe dramaqueen? Me accusing anyone of being a shill for disagreeing? What? Only Beamer and Krovven got that distinction and for good reason. Then again, anyone who goes out full guns like this isn't worth anyone's time at all.

And guess this proved you really know nothing about the crash if this is your best you have to reply. In the future please refrain from talking about stuff you know shit about if all you are going to do is troll.

*snicker*

Its more simple than one can see.. There comes a point in time where you see no more future of growth... Vivendi has always been a buy and sell company.. They see no long term future growth in these products, so sell as quick as possible to those looking for growth and control to get what you can from them.. Take that money and buy other things you do see $$ in

Whats more scary is what would happen to these products if these other companies actually bought them out?

TENCENT running WOW? MICROSOFT? lol kinda want to see that happen just for giggle sake
