EA Buys Into Ubisoft Posted by: Jeff on Monday, December 20th, 2004 Type: News Source: http://www.totalvideogames.com The ever expanding tentacles of EA reached across to France today as the US firm have announced that they have bought 19.9% of Ubisoft Entertainment. The terms of the agreement are yet to be disclosed, with the deal waiting for U.S. Antitrust clearance before it gets signed. Ubisoft has an approximate market value of 300 million, which means that the deal is worth somewhere in the region of around 59.7 million although this is unconfirmed. Whether EA has its sights on the rest of Ubisoft is of course anybodys guess, but it is a development that further increases EAs strength within the industry. Well have more news on this story when the details are disclosed. IF ONLY THE TALIBAN HAD BLOWN UP EA'S HEADQUARTERS ON 9/11/01. *EDIT* I JUST REALIZED THAT THIS WAS THE TOPIC OF AN OLDER THREAD, , EVEN THOUGH THIS STORY WAS DATED FOR TODAY. EVEN SO..........MOTHERPHUCKERRRRRRS!
