Media: Ubisoft may team up with private investors to keep its independence

A couple of weeks ago it became known that two investment groups were looking at buying Ubisoft.
Negotiations haven't started then - and may not.
Or it could go somewhat differently, as the company appears to be planning to remain independent.According to the website Seeking Alpha, citing analysts from Dealreporter, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot and his family want to enter into an agreement with a private equity firm.
This is necessary to maintain operational control over the publisher and avoid a takeover.Guillemot's family owns 15.9% of Ubisoft and has 22.3% of the votes in the company.Recall that from 2015 to 2018, the French publisher tried to acquire Vivendi.
At that time Yves Guillemot called independence a key factor of Ubisoft's success, so the deal did not take place.
However, in February 2022, he allowed the possibility of a merger with another company.After the publication of information Dealreporter share price Ubisoft rose by 10%.
