MILAN (Reuters) – France’s Vivendi <VIV.PA> has dropped summary proceedings filed in an Amsterdam court against a Mediaset <MS.MI> plan to merge its Italian and Spanish businesses into a new Dutch holding company, two sources close to the matter said on Monday.

Last week a Spanish court suspended Mediaset’s plan, which Vivendi – the second largest investor in the Italian broadcaster – considers detrimental for minority shareholders.

A court hearing on the case was scheduled in Amsterdam on Wednesday.
