Last Trade: 25.83
Trade Time: 10:41AM ET
Change: 8.47 (48.79%)
Prev Close: 17.36
Open: 25.75
Bid: 25.82 x 300
Ask: 25.83 x 2500
1y Target Est: 21.46

I would say they made a fair offer at 2 billion 8 million more than the value of the company based on the value today, which has risen 8.47 cents a share today!! If they offered this on Friday it was 16.00 a share the value of Take Two would have been about 1.7 billion and 2 billion is 300 million profit for those shareholders

share prices don't mean everything. Most often intagiable assets are not considered, and also stock prices are manipulated big time. They could authorize more shares and have dilute a bit at a time and the price would recover - making the company 'worth' more.
I mean there are more ways to determine what the value of a company is.

how much would EA have offered if TakeTwo was a privately held company??

Well said.

It seems like everyone picked up a finance degree and/or an MBA overnight. Valuation of a company is a far more nuanced process than just looking at stock prices. I've been exposed to the academic side of that nonsense enough- I lived with finance majors throughout college and valuations of a company is a long and tedious process.

Activision may step up. They are the #1 3rd party publisher right now.

*crossing my fingers*

So when TT gives up and sells to EA. How long before Microsoft buys EA?

Hopefully Backbreaker is a hit and Ubisoft, Activision or Sony grabs them because PS3's sports library will be pretty small if EA goes to Microsoft.
