Simon Fiduciaria has registered stake to vote at Mediaset shareholder meeting-source

MILAN, Aug 30 (Reuters) - The Simon Fiduciaria trust, which holds most of French media giant Vivendi’s stake in Mediaset, has registered its shares in the Italian broadcaster with a view to being able to vote at a key Sept. 4 shareholder meeting, a source said on Friday.

Two-thirds of Vivendi’s 29% stake in Mediaset is held by the trust which Mediaset has to date excluded from taking part at shareholder meetings.

Mediaset shareholders will vote on a proposal to merge the group’s Italian and Spanish businesses into a Dutch holding company.

Vivendi has publicly declared its opposition to the deal.

A Simon Fiduciaria spokesman was not immediately available for a comment.
