The Lagardère group announces that it has proceeded with the partial repurchase of the bond maturing in October 2014.
A total of €215 million was tendered in the offer made to bond holders, reducing the amount maturing in 2014 accordingly. This now amounts to €660 million.
As announced, the Group has used part of the proceeds from the disposal of its stake in EADS to reduce its debt. This partial repurchase operation also enables the Group to improve its liquidity profile.
