Recall that at the end of April, the portals Bloomberg and Kotaku, citing their own sources, reported that investment groups were beginning to carefully consider the takeover of a French publishing house.

According to Seeking Alpha, Ubisoft wants to fight back against the takeover. To this end, the Guillemot family can purchase an additional stake in their company’s securities through a private investment firm and retain full control.

    The Guillemot family has a 15.9% stake in Ubisoft and 22.3% of the vote.

Seeking Alpha also noted that after the announcement of Ubisoft’s independence struggle, the company’s shares have jumped in value by 10% (to $49 per unit). However, the record highs of 2018 ($110) are still a long way off.

According to unconfirmed information, the next full-fledged parts of the franchises Far Cry, Ghost Recon and Assassin’s Creed (Rift does not count) will go on sale later than planned by Ubisoft.
