Paris, August 4, 2008

The general management of Lagardère Active’s French Magazine Publishing division and union organizations have reached an interim “dual-media” agreement for the purpose of facilitating the contribution of text, photos, videos and sound to magazine websites, with a view to responding to journalists’ questions and concerns regarding future developments in their profession.

While awaiting the implementation of a definitive agreement – expected by the end of September – on dual-media cooperation conditions, Lagardère Active’s management and union organizations agreed to devise and sign an interim dual-media agreement.

This interim agreement will remain in effect until 30 September 2008. The parties have made a good-faith commitment to employ their best efforts to reach a definitive agreement by that date.

The future agreement is expected to rely on the voluntary participation of journalists who wish to work on Internet sites, with the consent of the editorial directors concerned.
