The comments attributed to Arnaud Lagardère in the Nouvel Observateur of this date concerning Canal + are inaccurate and inadmissible.

As he has consistently stated, Arnaud Lagardère reaffirms his support for and his confidence in the teams of Canal +.

Furthermore, he affirms that the amount of the group’s capital stake in Canal + France is 6.7 billion euros, and not 9 billion euros.

He also affirms that the suppositions alluded to by the Nouvel Observateur concerning football rights are pure speculation.
