Paris, 12 February 2008

The creation of Lagardère Entertainment, a subsidiary of Lagardère Active, was announced by the Lagardère group’s chief executive, Arnaud Lagardère, and Didier Quillot, head of Lagardère Active. The creation of the new subsidiary stemmed from a decision to consolidate and develop Lagardère Active’s audiovisual production and distribution activities within this new entity, which will also include activities related to live entertainment, audiovisual rights management and the management of artists.

Responsibility for the new unit was entrusted to Arnaud Molinié, who was named president of Lagardère Entertainment.

Arnaud Molinié will continue in his position as Arnaud Lagardère’s director of strategy and development, but will relinquish his operational responsibilities at the Jean-Luc Lagardère Foundation.

According to Arnaud Lagardère, “The creation of Lagardere Entertainment, a new motor for growth, reinforces our strategy to make Lagardere a world leader in audiovisual content and rights for all types of media, including digital.”
