I read in The Globe & Mail newspaper today that Indigo kept their 51% share in Kobo and sold only the remaining outstanding shares to the Japanese company. Kobo is STILL majority-owned by Indigo. Let's face it, they needed the deep pockets of a larger company with access to Asian and other markets where they could not otherwise compete with the giants out there!
