Shares in France's Lagardere surged 20% on Thursday after media group Vivendi said it would buy another stake in the company, paving the way for a full takeover. Canal+ owner Vivendi, which already owns 27% of Lagardere, said it had agreed to buy Amber Capital's 17.9% holding for 24.10 euros per share, or about 610 million euros ($718.95 million).
