Preserving our independence,
investing in our people.
Becoming employee-owned means that we will preserve our culture and values for the long run. By making our employees partners, we will unlock their entrepreneurial potential to take ustwo studios to places that we could have never imagined.
As of April 2022, our founders Mills and Sinx, and shareholder Marcus Woxneryd reduced their equity in ustwo studios and transferred the majority ownership of the business to all current and future employees.
This means everyone who works at ustwo studios is now a partner. Together we own 62% of ustwo as part of an Employee Ownership Trust (EOT).
Transitioning to an EOT delivers on the promise and vision set by Mills and Sinx. It allows us to remain fiercely independent and in control of our future—empowering all ustwobies to influence the direction of the business.
Here’s why becoming employee-owned matters
- We can deepen our shared purpose and welcome more like-minded people to ustwo
- We can preserve our independence, maintain our high quality of work, and protect our values and culture
- As partners, we’re represented on the board by ustwobies, giving us a say in the future of ustwo
It really feels like the future, being able to maintain our values and culture and drive our destiny as a collective.
