The Elkann-Agnelli family, which owns Britain's The Economist, will become the main shareholder of the publisher GEDI, a group that includes leading Italian dailies La Stampa and La Repubblica, in a deal announced late Monday. The family's holding firm Exor will buy the 43.78 percent of Gedi held by the De Benedetti family for 102.4 million euros ($113.4 million) and will then launch a takeover offer for the rest of the company via a new firm, they said in a joint statement.
