The Week: City news - Bollore in new control bid

Vincent Bollore is to make his fifth attempt to secure representation on the board of Aegis, the company in which he is the biggest single shareholder.

Shareholders will be asked to vote at the company's annual general meeting on 23 May on whether Bollore Group's Philippe Germond and Roger Hatchuel should be appointed to the board. Each of the four previous requests has been rejected by more than 90 per cent of shareholders.
