GE, Vivendi, Agree on Price for NBCU Stake

Dec 1, 2009  •  Post A Comment

General Electric reached a tentative deal with Vivendi to buy Vivendi’s 20 percent stake in NBC Universal for $5.8 billion, The New York Times reports.

The tentative agreement removes one more obstacle to Comcast acquiring a controlling stake in NBCU, under a $30 billion deal that Comcast and GE have already been hammering out.

There’s a tentative plan to announce that deal on Thursday, the Times says.
