Vivendi has 'significant' means to reward shareholders: CFO
[Reuters] - Vivendi will have "significant" means to reward shareholders with buy-backs or dividends after it receives the proceeds from selling its stakes in video games publisher Activision Blizzard and Maroc Telecom, its finance chief said on Thursday. Speaking at a Morgan Stanley investor conference in Barcelona, Chief Financial Officer Philippe Capron said the board had not yet decided on the exact size or form of the return to shareholders, which will come amid a broader revamp at the group as it seeks to exit telecoms to focus more on media. The board's decision will also be affected by Vivendi's plan to split into two companies next year by publicly listing its largest unit, the French mobile telecoms network operator SFR, in the middle of the year. The remaining businesses - Universal Music Group, pay-television operator Canal Plus and its Brazilian telecoms firm GVT - will be in the media-focused company, according to the plan.

Activision Blizzard lowers outlook for fourth quarter
[Reuters] - Video game publisher Activision Blizzard Inc, known for its "Call of Duty" franchise, said it raised its 2013 forecast but lowered its revenue estimates for the current quarter after warning that it could face a challenging holiday period.

For the fourth-quarter, which is its crucial holiday period, Activision lowered its non-GAAP revenue forecast to $2.22 billion from its prior expectation of $2.25 billion. This fell short of Wall Steet's estimate of $2.29 billion, according to Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S.

[Reuters] - Video game publisher Activision Blizzard Inc, known for its "Call of Duty" franchise, said it slightly raised its 2013 outlook driven by better-than-expected third-quarter earnings.
