Take-Two Takes Itself Off The Table (TTWO)

Last month EA dropped its $2 billion bid for Take-Two, which left the company wide open for the “various interested parties” that Take-Two says it’s been talking to since May to swoop in and make an offer. Now it looks like that won’t happen either — Take-Two announced this morning that it would stay independent.

So who were those interested parties, and what kind of deals were they considering? Take-Two still won’t say. Meanwhile, TTWO is now trading at $15.29 — $10 below EA’s bid.
