Tencent is believed to be pursuing a majority stakeholder in Ubisoft

Tencent is likely to fill its wallet for major shares.

Tencent is reportedly interested in becoming a majority shareholder for Ubisoft, a developer and publishing company. According to a new report, the holding company, which is already a minority stakeholder, is considering making a significant investment in the developer in the near future.

Tencent has expressed a desire to become Ubisoft''s primary shareholder, and is allegedly willing to pay an astounding premium of over $100 USD per share in order to increase Ubisoft''s share prices from $43.03 to $48.33.

The possibility of a Ubisoft sale has been heard for a while, with speculation that the Guillemot family, some of whom are the company''s initial founders, might have purchased it completely themselves. However, it seems quite unlikely that anyone would meet its recommendation of a 130% share price. Perhaps the holding company is willing to offer such a premium for this reason.

Tencent, however, is already holding minority and majority ownership in several large players in the gaming business. Tencent, along with holding several internal development studios, is also holding a variety of participation in companies such as Activision, Supercell, Epic Games, Remedy, Riot Games, PlatinumGames, Bohemia Interactive, Dontnod Entertainment, Klei Entertainment, Inflexion, and Funcom.
