Other notable announcements and developments today…

• Vivendi had its big meeting about a possible Universal Music IPO yesterday. “Vivendi’s supervisory board approved the management board’s proposal notably to examine and carry out the necessary preliminary legal operations required for a potential change in the Universal Music Group’s shareholder structure”, says a statement. So not much to report, other than that a thing that might happen still might happen.
