Take-Two Rejects EA's $2 Billion Offer

Publisher response to purchase offer is quick and to the point.

by Jeremy Dunham

US, February 24, 2008 - Only hours after Electronic Arts proposed a $26/ share (approximately $2 billion in total) offer to acquire Take-Two Interactive, Take-Two officials have responded with an absolute "No."


According to Reuters, Take Two has said that the offer was at a significant discount to its peers and that it came at "absolutely the wrong time."


Additionally, Take-Two called the bid "highly opportunistic" on the heels of the upcoming release of Grand Theft Auto IV on April 29.


Take-Two has offered to enter discussions with EA the day after GTA IV's release, on April 30.


Thought i'd post for those worried about EAs takeover bid.

Do we really need 10 threads about this?

YAY! Number 12!


Anyway, it was a smart move to wait until the release of GTA. Obviously EA wants a cut.
