You Are Here:Vivendi sells entire stake in Ubisoft for EUR 2 bln

(Telecompaper) Vivendi has announced that it has entered into agreements to sell its 27.27 percent stake in games developer Ubisoft, amounting to 30,489,300 shares, for EUR 2 billion. This interest was acquired over the past three years for EUR 794 million. As part of the deal, Vivendi will no longer be a Ubisoft shareholder and has committed to refrain from purchasing Ubisoft shares for a period of five years. The move follows speculation last year that the company could face a possible hostile bid from Vivendi, despite opposition from the Guillemot family (founder and minority shareholder of Ubisoft).
