Korean Valve Bid?

"Will Asian online game publishers Nexon and NCsoft buy blockbuster publisher Valve?" asks VentureBeat in an article based on a rumor in a "major" Korean publication. Joongang News reports Nexon and Valve met in Hawaii yesterday to discuss a possible merger. Nexon was also involved in acquisition rumors earlier this year when reports emerged it was bidding on EA. Valve's Gabe Newell has expressed no interest in selling the company when previous such rumors have emerged, but neither company has commented on this report yet.

Does anyone know what the actual ownership picture is at Valve? Is it just Gabe and a few other guys that own everything, or have they allowed their long-time employees to get part ownership? Does Valve even HAVE shares?

According to that Gabe owns over half of Valve, but I couldn't find any mention anywhere else of who owns what because they're private. They have zero need to sell - and probably even less desire to do so. If anything this sort of announcement is usually a ploy to give the purchasing corps some attention and a little stock bounce - by whom is another matter but I'm sure their shares probably saw a small flurry of trading today.
