Take-Two Disses EA's Latest Deadline Extension

May 19, 2008 -

Take-Two Interactive is urging stockholders to reject today's extension by EA of its deadline to tender T2 shares at the $25.74 offering price.

Of the extension, Take Two chairman Strauss Zelnick said:

This is the same highly conditional proposal that EA offered Take-Two stockholders on March 13, 2008, which our Board of Directors thoroughly reviewed and unanimously determined to be inadequate and contrary to the best interests of Take-Two’s stockholders. As such, the recommendation of our Board of Directors that stockholders not tender their shares to EA remains unchanged...

Take Two CEO Ben Feder added:

EA’s highly conditional offer fails to compensate our stockholders for our exceptional portfolio of intellectual property... In the last several weeks, our strategy and Take-Two’s value have been vividly demonstrated by... The record-breaking sales performance of Grand Theft Auto IV... We have also just announced an agreement with Universal Pictures to make BioShock, the universally acclaimed hit video game, into a feature film... EA’s proposal undervalues our Company.

GP: The operative phrase around T2 HQ seems to be "highly conditional..."

That's the spirit T2! Show Unicron-I mean EA that you're no pushover!

Re: Take-Two Disses EA's Latest Deadline Extension

Well said, Zelnick. Well said, Feder.

Now, I've said something like this before, and I'll say it now: What if Paul Eibeler were still Take-Two CEO? Would he have decided the same way Zelnick did?

Re: Take-Two Disses EA's Latest Deadline Extension

Let them have it T2, let them have it.

Re: Take-Two Disses EA's Latest Deadline Extension

Yeah...sucks for you EA, that's what you get for sucking so much...

T2 ftw!

"EA’s proposal undervalues our Company."

Same for any other studio EA ever purchased.

Not much to add here, we just sit, watch, and wait for EA to either win as Darth Vader, or to see Take Two to survive as one of the last remaining Jedi. (LucasArts is gonna sue me.)

 give it up EA your balls are being handed to you

Re: Take-Two Disses EA's Latest Deadline Extension

Does anyone know what those "conditions" are?

Good for them

To me those comments read as close to spitting in EA's face as they can get and still sound professional. Good to see.

MechaTama31I mean, of the groups being bullied here, which of the two would you refer to collectively as "nerds"?10/19/2014 - 11:30pm
MechaTama31But that's the thing, it doesn't sound to me like he is advocating bullying, it sounds like he is accusing the SJWs of bullying the "nerds", who I can only assume refers to the GGers.10/19/2014 - 11:21pm
Andrew EisenInteresting read. Unfortunately, too vague to form an opinion on but at least now I know what faefrost was talking about in James' editorial.10/19/2014 - 10:39pm
Neo_DrKefkaBreaking GameJournoPros organized a blacklist of former Destructoid writer Allistar Pinsof for investigating fraud in IndieGoGo campaign http://blogjob.com/oneangrygamer/2014/10/gamergate-destructoid-corruption-and-ruined-careers/10/19/2014 - 8:57pm
Neo_DrKefkaOnly good thing I seen come out of the Biddle incident was the fact a professional fighter offered to give 10k to an anti bullying charity for a round in the ring with Biddle.10/19/2014 - 7:49pm
Neo_DrKefkaEven after all the interviews she is still on twitter making fun of people with disabilities (Autism) yet she is a part of the crowd that is on the so called right side of history...10/19/2014 - 7:48pm
Neo_DrKefkaWhich #GameGate supports are constantly being harassed and bullied. Brianna Wu who I told everyone she was trolling GamerGate weeks ago with her passive aggressive threats was looking for that crazy person in the crowd.10/19/2014 - 7:47pm
Neo_DrKefkaI believe the problem #GamerGate has with Sam Biddle is he is apart of this blogging group that in a way hates or detests its readers. Also being apart of the crowd that claims its on the right side of history isn't helping when he is advocating bullying10/19/2014 - 7:45pm
MechaTama31Of course, I'm looking at these tweets in isolation, I don't know a thing about the guy.10/19/2014 - 7:06pm
MechaTama31If anything, the sarcastic implication seems to be that the SJW crowd is bringing back the bullying of nerds. But it's the GGers who are out for his blood? I'm lost...10/19/2014 - 7:01pm
MechaTama31I don't really get this Sam Biddle thing. The reaction to his tweets seems to be taking them at face value, but... they're tongue in cheek. Right?10/19/2014 - 7:00pm
Andrew EisenI have it. The problem, so far as I can tell, is neither of them allow me to overlay my webcam feed or text links to my Extra-Life fundraising page.10/19/2014 - 4:08pm
