I'm in another residential part of town
about a mile from the city center trying to find Audiofina. It's
principal asset is a 49% stake in CLT-UFA, Europe's largest broadcaster.
Revenues in 1998 were 1.5 billion euros (which is about $1.3
billion in US dollars). I see the company's name on a mailbox
in an apartment complex and buzz the appropriate number. A woman
opens the door of a ground floor apartment and invites me in.
I'm informed CEO Bruno Chauvat had seen my introductory letter
but the main offices are in Brussels. Two women run the two-bedroom
office here, which is mainly taking care of paper work.
