According to the Canadian paper The Globe and Mail, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot has met with the premier of Quebec to discuss investment from the Quebec government, while other Ubisoft officials are meeting up this week with "a dozen potential investors" across Montreal and Toronto.
The Assassin's Creed publisher wants to stay independent in the face of a potential takeover from Vivendi, the mass media organisation which began to purchase shares in the company late last year.
“We want to increase the number of Canadian shareholders in Ubisoft to have better control over the capital", Guillemot told the paper.Vivendi recently began a mandatory takeover bid of mobile publisher Gameloft after purchasing over 30% of its stock. However, Guillemot has said similar plans regarding Ubisoft were "unsolicited," and in leaked emails claimed he did not want the company to be "managed by people who don't understand our expertise and what it takes to succeed in this industry."
