MILAN (Reuters) – Italian broadcaster Mediaset <MS.MI> said on Thursday it had reached an agreement with Peninsula Holding to limit the impact of the exercise of withdrawal rights in its deal to create a pan-European TV platform (MFE).

In a statement Mediaset said Peninsula Holding would, at the broadcaster’s request, buy up to 355 million shares of the new MFE entity.
