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. Despite a bump in its 2013 forecast, Activision "cautioned that there is some execution risk in Q4," Benchmark Company analyst Mike Hickey said. 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.

"Our overall comfort with the market" before the launch of Sony Corp's PlayStation4 Microsoft' s Xbox One consoles in coming weeks moved the company to raise its 2013 forecast, Chief Executive Bobby Kotick said in an interview.

Noriega-Activision Fight Likened to Rock Band’s Lawsuit
[at Bloomberg] - Activision Blizzard Inc. told a judge that former Panamanian dictator Manuel Noriega can’t rely on a case brought by the rock band No Doubt in his lawsuit over the depiction of him as a man on the run in a video game. Activision, represented by former New York Mayor Rudolph Giuliani, argued today in court that Noriega’s lawsuit, seeking damages for his portrayal in “Call of Duty: Black Ops II,” is fundamentally different from the complaint filed against the video-game publisher in 2009 by No Doubt, which convinced two courts that its portrayal in “Band Hero” wasn’t protected as free speech. “Noriega was a major part of or history in the 1980s,” Giuliani said at a hearing in California state court in Los Angeles . Activision, based in Santa Monica, California, is asking Superior Court Judge William Fahey to throw out Noriega’s lawsuit under a state law that allows for quick dismissal of meritless claims that stifle free speech.
