From @Breakingviews: Vivendi may hand 60% of Universal Music to investors. Eliminating a discount on the French group’s shares could unlock 7 billion euros of value. But controlling shareholder Vincent Bolloré benefits most, writes @LiamWardProud https://t.co/3cXVDDXr8a

From @Breakingviews: The only surprising thing about Vincent Bolloré’s plan to spin off a chunk of Universal Music is that he didn’t think of it sooner, writes @LiamWardProud https://t.co/7KNNromO0f

Marketplace middlemen like $6 billion Virtu Financial seemed like the main winners as Reddit-using punters poured cash into shorted stocks like GameStop. But appearances can be deceptive, writes @LiamWardProud: https://t.co/QgXIzSadT0 https://t.co/4KQZ4KcUQd

From @Breakingviews: Ex-finance minister George Osborne is in many ways an odd hire for the advisory firm boutique Robey Warshaw. Yet political savvy is ever more critical in M&A given state meddling, @LiamWardProud writes https://t.co/u7YPslLDCh

Here it is: the crucial table showing Germany's calculations on the AstraZeneca vaccine's efficacy in over-65s. And good God, look at that confidence interval! For over-65s there was only one infection in the treatment group and one in the placebo group. https://t.co/edUPhaL7sS

How small can Jack Ma's Ant get? On a bank-like valuation, barely a tenth of its previous $300 bln-plus price tag. My latest via @breakingviews https://t.co/zBfoxcFGDU
