Toronto - September 21, 2012 - Vivendi and Universal Music Group are very satisfied with the announcements from the European Commission and the Federal Trade Commission in the United States approving the acquisition of EMI Recorded Music. Today’s clearance brings to an end an extensive regulatory review. This transaction will benefit both the artistic community and the cultural industry.

With EMI, Universal Music Group will strengthen its presence in countries such as Japan, the world’s second largest music market, increase its market share and develop its presence on all the digital platforms.

With a broad array of EMI artists from Katy Perry, Emeli Sandé, Robbie Williams, Herbert Grönemeyer, Lady Antebellum and Norah Jones, to icons like The Beatles, the Beach Boys, Genesis and Bob Seger, Universal Music Group remains true to its vision: to invest in talent and grow the company to offer consumers more music and more choice.

This acquisition will also enable Vivendi to significantly strengthen its ownership of exclusive content.
