France's Lagardere says future of Elle magazine "a question"
Arnaud Lagardere, the principal managing partner of the company, said in November last year assets divestments could be envisaged to boost cashflow.
"I'm not very pleased with the cashflow generation. This is why we are going to modify the group's profile with divestments but also acquisitions," the executive told journalists following the publication of the group's full-year results.
Asked about the future of its lifestyle and fashion Elle magazine, Lagardere said: "It is a question", without elaborating.
Lagardere added some deals were on the verge of being announced but did not give details, citing the need to consult first with staff representatives.
