Lagardère is a French-based multinational conglomerate. The group once covered a broad range of industries but is now largely focused on the media sector, in which it is one of the world’s leading companies. Headed by Arnaud Lagardère, the firm does business in more than 40 countries and is structured around four main business lines: its book and electronic publishing division (Lagardère Publishing) includes the major imprint Hachette Livre; while the Lagardère Active unit encompasses newspaper, digital media and magazine publishing (including Hachette Filipacchi Médias), radio and television broadcasting and production and advertising sales. The Lagardère Services unit includes store retail, largely in airports and railway stations, and Lagardère Unlimited engages in sports marketing, event management and sports and talent management.

The company also holds a 7.5% stake in the aerospace and defence firm EADS, which was originally created from, amongst other entities, the Lagardère subsidiary Aérospatiale-Matra.
