20 December 2004 By Johnny Minkley
Shockwaves were sent through the games industry this morning, with the stunning revelation that Electronic Arts plans to purchase nearly 20 per cent of shares in French outfit Ubisoft.
The 19.9 per cent stake is being purchased from Dutch investment company Talpa Beheer BV, headed by TV billionaire Jon de Mol.
A report on the Wall Street Journal suggested a fee of between $85 million and $100 million had been offered for the shares, the purchase of which will require the ratification of US regulators.
