The Wall Street Journal is reporting Vivendi is looking for bankers to help broker a deal with parties interested in acquiring its 61% share in Activision. According to the report, Vivendi is in talks with Goldman Sachs and Barclays. It was revealed last week that if a buyer isn’t found, the firm may have to post its shares on the open market.
