PARIS (Reuters) – French video games maker Ubisoft is not aware of media giant Vivendi requesting a seat on the company’s board, Chief Financial Officer Alain Martinez said on Thursday.

“Nobody is forbidden from proposing management figures be it Vivendi or another shareholder,” Martinez told a group of shareholders. “Unless there’s been a proposal that’s been made today, as far as I know there hasn’t been.”
