Is Ubisoft for sale?

The rumor keeps on going. Bloomberg reports that Ubisoft is talking to potential buyers about a sale of the company. It all doesn't seem entirely unreasonable given all the problems Ubisoft has faced lately, with declining share prices, sales that didn't meet expectations and internal personnel issues that have received a lot of negative attention.

According to Bloomberg, it is private equity firms that are currently feeling Ubisoft on the pulse, two of which are named: Blackstone and KKR & Co. According to Kotaku, Ubisoft has been questioning potential buyers and their intentions for a year.

However, the big boss Yves Guillemot has relatively recently stated that the company can remain independent of other owners:

Quote

We have always taken our decisions in the interest of our stakeholders, which are our players, employees and shareholders. So Ubisoft can remain independent. We have the talent, the industrial and the financial scale, and a large portfolio of powerful IP.

At the same time, he left the door open:

Quote

Having said that, if there were an offer to buy us, the board of directors would of course review it in the interest of all stakeholders.

Given what the recent past has delivered in the form of unexpected takeovers, perhaps a Ubisoft deal wouldn't raise too many eyebrows.
