I don't blame them. The mobile market is crazy profitable right now.

I understand why Vivendi is interested in gaming right now, but, Gameloft? You know, back on 2009 - 2013, they're the big thing, but today?

The CEOs of Ubi and GL are brothers

Gameloft own something like 15% of Ubi, they are probably going for that more than anything.

When did they buy ubisoft?

IIFloodyII2543d ago

They haven't. Though people think once they get Gameloft, Ubisoft are next.

They are worried enough that they have growth plans to try and fend them off.
The reason is, they'll most likely take a lot more than they'll give.

I'm confused... How can a company like Vivendi buy another company like Ubisoft if the said company doesn't want to be bought or doesn't agree to being bought? You can't just buy something from someone if they don't agree to it. That's almost like someone putting a gun to my head and forcing me to sell my motor bike to them. Isn't that illegal? lol

They can because Ubisoft are on the stock market, and not privately owned. So they'd just need to have the majority stake, and from there will just force the rest to either sell over or play along, as they would pretty much have full control.

Think if Ubi Ceo wants to avoid issues with vivendi, they start buying back majority of Share before share holders get wind or market starts BS evaluations.
