Koch Media Denies Reports That It Is ‘For Sale’

Koch Media, the publisher responsible for Deep Silver – who publishes Dead Island and owns Saints Row maker Volition – has denied reports in a German paper that the company is up for sale.

German business newspaper Handelsblatt reported that Koch Media has brought in investment bank UBS to the company to find a suitable buyer, with multiple sources claiming a sale was in the works.

But in a statement posted today on Deep Silver's Twitter account, Koch Media says that that there is no truth to the rumors, and that the company is "stable and growing."

"Independent companies like us understandably attract interest," reads the statement. "As a matter of fact, we ourselves are always on the lookout for responsible acquisition opportunities in the fields of publishing and distribution to accelerate our growth. But we are not for sale."

From that statement, it sounds like Koch Media isn't "actively" for sale but would entertain the idea of it if the right offer came along…
