EA-Take 2 merger passes important FTC hurdle, Take 2 still playing shy


EA still wants to buy Take 2, it’s true, and Take 2 is still playing shy. That, even though EA’s offer of $25.74 per share is now more than what Take 2 is currently trading at, $24.47. But that’s only part of the story, this on-going blah-blah-fest.

Apparently Electronic Arts has passed some sort of Federal Trade Commission test, paving the way for a possible merger.

What’ll get done first, this merger or the XM-Sirius merger, which Eric Logan, Executive Vice President of Programming at XM, said on today’s Opie and Anthony is exactly where it was when it was first announced?
