Vivendi Environnement: fed and watered

The write-off is nowhere near as bad as it looks: Vivendi had to book the non-cash charge in preparation for a shift to new US accounting standards. The French utilities group's operating figures, meanwhile, look good - growth is up, particularly in deals with private sector firms. Vivendi looks poised to win still more services contracts in 2002.

Home Services: next stop France

Home Services has been offering home insurance in the UK since 1994 through various partners. Moving into France in alliance with major shareholder Vivendi should allow Home Services to take a slice of a E37 million market, without much short term opposition. In the medium term, however, the opportunity may be too attractive for other major European utilities to ignore.

French water market: walking on thin ice

The French water market could be facing one of its biggest crises. If Vivendi Environnement and la Saur are sold to foreign companies by their respective owners, the local municipalities may take action to leave the companies high and dry. Parents Bouygues and Vivendi Universal must take care to ensure that whatever action they take keeps the authorities happy.

Vivendi Universal: between a rock and hard place

Vivendi Universal, the French media and utility group, is going through its biggest crisis ever. It needs to reduce its debt exposure and raise cash to survive, but it must comply with political pressure not to sell its environmental arm to a foreign entity, casting serious doubt over Vivendi's hope of raising much cash.

Vivendi Universal: to sell or not to sell

According to the French press, Vivendi's CEO is considering reducing his company's stake in Vivendi Environnement. This is a reversal of his view a month ago that selling the share was "not on the agenda". The move would re-orientate the group while also cutting its excessive debts. However, Vivendi will need to convince politicians it is a good idea.
