Instead of selling its shares in Activision, Vivendi is instead considering selling Brazilian telecommunications giant Global Village Telecom instead, which would bring the firm somewhere between $8.59 to $10.42 billion in change. Apparently, there are more interested buyers for Brazilian GVT than Activision, which is deemed too expensive for the open market, according to Reuters. Yesterday, a WSJ report claimed Vivendi has enlisted the help of Barclays and Goldman Sachs in order to find a buyer for its 61% stake in Activision.
