Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc. (NASDAQ:TTWO) today responded to Electronic Arts Inc.'s (NASDAQ:ERTS) announcement that it does not intend to pursue an acquisition of Take-Two at this time.
Strauss Zelnick, Chairman of the Board of Take-Two, commented, "We remain focused on creating value for our stockholders and our consumers. This has been our goal since EA launched its conditional and unsolicited bid six months ago, a bid which was repeatedly rejected by our stockholders. As part of that commitment, we remain actively engaged in discussions with other parties in the context of our formal process to consider strategic alternatives. We're especially proud of the success we've enjoyed over the past eighteen months and we remain confident in our ability to generate value for stockholders."
