The teams throughout Ubisoft's worldwide network of studios and business offices are committed to delivering original and memorable gaming experiences across all popular platforms.
With over 500m games sold, a community of fans of more than 70m players, and more than 90% of its revenues coming from international sales, Ubisoft is the 3rd largest video game publisher in the world. With significant value creation potential ahead, the company is today delivering on its strategic plan, presented in February 2016.
Over the past 20 years, the value of Ubisoft has been multiplied by 28. Over the past 10 years, Ubisoft’s revenue has doubled, and net results have been multiplied by almost 8. Ubisoft built this success through determination and with consistency, leveraging its core strengths: agility and responsiveness, independence, and its unique capability to foster both creativity and technological innovation.
It's in this context that in 2016, a new shareholder bought Ubisoft stock, became its largest shareholder, and expressed its potential intention to take control of the company, without paying the premium that other shareholders should be entitled to. This control over Ubisoft could create conflicts of interest, disrupt existing or future partnerships, jeopardising Ubisoft's strong growth momentum and hurting shareholder value.
