Ubisoft founding family likely to oppose full takeover, report suggests

Ubisoft looks to be readying itself to fight off a potential future takeover bid, according to a new report.

Recent details suggested Ubisoft was being circled by several private equity firms, and Ubisoft itself has addressed the possibility it will be bought during a recent investor briefing.

Now, mergers and acquisitions site Dealreporter (via SeekingAlpha) has suggested Ubisoft’s founding Guillemot family is looking to partner with one of these private equity firms while retaining control of the company – a move designed to see off a full-scale takeover attempt by another party.
