Mondadori Group: Antitrust authorizes acquisition of 50% of DeA Planeta Libri

The Mondadori Group announces that it has received notice from the Antitrust Authority of the authorization to acquire from De Agostini Editore S.p.A. a 50% stake in the share capital of DeA Planeta Libri S.r.l., a transaction disclosed last 22 November 2021.

The Authority’s go-ahead triggers the fulfilment of the suspensive condition attached to the agreement on the sale of the stake; the sale will therefore be fully implemented on the closing date, scheduled by March, as from which the company will be known as De Agostini Libri S.r.l..
