Game Over for Ubisoft?

Ubisoft’s September 29 shareholder Ubisoft meeting looks set to be a fraught affair due to the entrance of Vivendi on the company’s share register. Vivendi, under the direction of its chairman, Vincent Bolloré, has been building its stake up in the French gaming company over the past year, amassing a 22.8% holding by July of 2016. The actions of Vivendi have been the source of significant concern for the Guillemot brothers, the executive directors who founded Ubisoft in the 1980s and currently hold approximately 9% of its share capital, prompting them to announce the purchase of additional shares to bolster their position in the face of a potential takeover.
