Ubisoft CEO Responds to Acquisition Rumors: “We have everything we need to remain independent”
“There has been a lot of talk around consolidation in the industry, and Ubisoft in particular. Our overall position is clear and well known: As we said last February, we have everything we need to remain independent. We have the talent, the industrial and the financial scale, and a large portfolio of powerful IPs to create massive value in the coming years.“
However, the acquisition rumors are not without merit, Yves Guillemot believes that this “is putting in plain sight the real appeal and value of our assets and our value creation potential.” Yves Guillemot said the same thing in February this year. He also mentioned several times at the time that he would consider any acquisition or merger proposal, but he also emphasized that the main reason was that the company had to do it.
