“It is total brainwashing. It has never been in the group’s plans to part with Le Figaro,” Rudi Roussilon, a representative for the Dassault group told Reuters when asked about the Mediapart report.

A Bollore spokesman declined to comment.

The Dassault group notably controls Dassault Aviation, maker of the Rafale war planes, as well as Le Figaro.

Bollore controls media group Vivendi (OTC:VIVHY), the top shareholder in Lagardere, which in turns owns assets such as Paris Match magazine, Europe 1 radio and the Journal du Dimanche newspaper.

In September Vivendi, which already owns 27% of Lagardere, said it had agreed to buy Amber Capital’s 17.9% holding in the company, paving the way for a full takeover.
