M6 eyes pact for Cyrealis


PARIS -- French audiovisual group M6 is in negotiations to buy high-tech video game and e-business group Cyrealis, M6 said Monday.

M6's group sites, including the group's thematic network sites and e-commerce site Mistergooddeal, attract more than 5.7 million unique visitors per month.

Cyrealis sites attract 5.5 million unique visitors per month, primarily males 15-35. The merger would see M6's site jump into the top 15 most frequently visited Web sites in France. While no deal has officially been signed to date, M6 hopes to acquire 100% of Cyrealis.
