fft: Yes, remember Bougafer well. Shame when it closed. It is odd to think that there is now no UK computer games industry. Are we really that bad ? Made a lot of money on paper with Sci first time round. sold 40k+ at about 500p just before the rights issue - think that was the only time i ever timed things right ! Lost 100k + when the price crashed down to 25p (i think that was the low). remember that horrible day when Sci announced the FY results would be postponed 1 month due to a whole load of porkies.... made money again after CDS/CDS 2 came out - oh happy days logging the sales progress accross the Europe and USA and waiting for the share price to catch up. And then they bought Eidos. A deal too far i thought - strangely, at the AGM before i had asked Jane whether she thought the company had grown to far for the existing management team and had they considered bring in people who had experience of running larger organisations (lead balloon sort of question really). After announcing the Eidos purchase without changing the management team, i was out,and not back in til the price hit 23p as i thought a deal may happen.

damac: "The Offer will be put to Eidos Shareholders at the Court Meeting and at the Extraordinary General Meeting. In order to become effective, the Scheme must be approved by a majority in number of the holders of Eidos Shares present and voting, either in person or by proxy, representing at least 75 per cent. in value of the Eidos Shares held by such Eidos Shareholders. In addition, a special resolution implementing the Scheme and approving the related Capital Reduction must be passed by Eidos Shareholders representing 75 per cent. of the votes cast at the Extraordinary General Meeting. The special resolution will also approve amendments to the articles of association of Eidos and, if necessary, to certain Eidos Share Schemes." "It is expected that the Court Meeting and the Extraordinary General Meeting will be held in March 2009 and that the Scheme will become effective before the end of April 2009." IMO, unless you desperately need the money out for something else, it is pointless selling up just now. Effectively TW have until the meetings in March to put in an offer, until then the price will stay very close to the 32p mark if no further bid is forthcoming. Been through all this lately with C&W takeover of Thus, the offer bid was £1.80 per share and the Thus shareprice shot up from around £1.35 to £1.79p, very rarely falling below the £1.79 mark before C&W got the required percentage acceptance for the takeover. Unless a bid comes in from someone else, the Edios share price will stay around this current level until the meetings in March, bailing out now when TW have so much time to counter it is not an option for me. Each to their own though!

cocorico2009: FYI Expanding publishers begin to circle struggling Britsoft firm – with an eye on key development assets, say insiders A battle between East and West looks set to decide the future of Eidos. MCV understands that both Warner Bros and Square Enix are ready to mount rival acquisition bids this month for the ailing British publisher. Although national press reports have fingered EA and Ubisoft as potential buyers, nose-tappers are backing Warner as the victor. It already owns 20 per cent of the Britsoft firm, and would only have to spend around $30m for a controlling interest. A spend of around $80m would give it total control, putting Eidos' current market value at around $120m. Eidos last month relaxed restrictions on Warner that would otherwise stop it buying more shares. However, Square is making clear signals of serious interest. Global president Yoichi Wada has already visited Denmark's IO Studio – Eidos' developer of the Hitman franchise – and is set to return to the UK shortly to move the deal forward. Our source said: "I think Warners will still win, but it's very interesting that Square have expressed this late interest. They are clearly looking for Western talent." Square Enix could opt to buy single assets – perhaps just IO and the Hitman brand. But shareholders looking to maximise value might prefer an all-or-nothing swoop. The Tokyo firm has made no secret of its global aspirations. Just last week the company told MCV that this strategy is being driven by a new business development unit established by Western boss John Yamamoto. And whilst it has made significant in-roads with titles like Final Fantasy XII, the firm acknowledges it has few titles with Western appeal. Eidos, on the other hand, has suffered significantly in the past 12 months, with its rocky year including a management cull, global studio restructuring and financial upheaval – with losses quadrupling and its share price losing over 90 per cent of its value. Its key Q4 release, Lara Croft Tomb Raider: Underworld, currently nestles at number seven in the GFK- ChartTrack All Formats Top 10. Eidos products, however, cover a raft of genres with Western appeal. Its slate of studios and IP could well complement Square's activity and plug the gaps in its line-up. SOURCE :- http://www.mcvuk.com/news/32578/Square-makes-late-Eidos-bid-but-Warner-in-pole-position ??? Any comments on which would be best for Eidos ???

darrens: dealy, I'm saying that I would be amazed if any bidder would pay a premium to todays share price, i.e. I think Eidos will be very lucky to agree a bid at over 13p/share. It's not impossible, bid situations are a bit of a lottery, but you don't have to look very hard to see to see why the share price is where it is.

togglebrush: A year ago the board of directors changed. Their recent forecast of sales for the current year is £160 to £180 million. In 3 weeks we should receive first half year Interims. But it would appear that sales revenue stream has been restored. Forecast ____________________Actual____Actual______Actual Yr 8/9_____in £ millions_____Yr 7/8____Yr 6/7______Yr 5/6 180.00____Revenue____________118.90____144.00______179.10 The share price has been hammered by the current state of the market and the 10% overhang of the company's shares in the market. This was caused by the failure of the Icelandic banks in Mid October and the placing of 43 million of Robert T's backing of his CFD holding on the market. Until this is cleared the share price is unlikely to succeed. There are multiple video game projects at various states of progress in several studios world wide (see header). Software projects are notoriously difficult to get the timing right. Even Microsoft has well published troubles. But after one year the revenue stream appears to be coming right. Company is vulnerable to take over because of its size, especially in this growth market sector. Key to the share price remains in that market overhang as the 10% dominates the free floating share market. The suggestion of a take over may help absorb some of the overhang and IF the Interims are positive we may see some share price movement latter in February or March.

kooba: TimeWarner Could Marry Lara Croft Lionel Laurent, 01.16.09, 11:58 AM EST Time Warner Inc. 01/16/2009 4:00PM It seems to be a marriage made in heaven: media conglomerate Time Warner, with its finger in all sorts of pies from movies to music, and videogame hottie Lara Croft, whose Tomb Raider series has already spawned two big-screen movies. And now that Tomb Raider creator Eidos is officially in play, after confirming it had received a preliminary takeover approach on Thursday, Time Warner could end up as the victorious buyer. Time Warner already owns a 20.0% stake in Britain's Eidos, which would give it an obvious advantage in takeover talks, and it has the right to acquire an extra 10.0% as part of an agreement with the games maker. Warner first bought into Eidos back in 2006, with a 10.0% stake, as part of a wider deal to license and distribute games based on Time Warner-owned characters like Batman and Bugs Bunny. "Time Warner is the most likely bidder," said Robert Jakobsen, an analyst with Jyske Bank. He estimated a takeover price of around 20 to 30 pence (30 to 45 cents) per share, a premium of about 50.0% to the current share price. Shares of Eidos jumped by 31.3%, or 3.75 pence (6 cents), to 15.75 pence ($2.33), during afternoon trading in London Friday. The company would not say who had approached it regarding a possible takeover, while a representative of TimeWarner was not available for comment. Eidos is vulnerable to a takeover because of its debt levels, which stand at 25 million pounds ($37.0 million), and growing pressure from the consumer downturn on its ability to meet loan agreements. Although videogames are still selling like hotcakes, prices are coming down to lure buyers out of their shell, and Eidos warned earlier this month that it might breach its loan covenants in June of this year. If the company were to be taken over, it would be a repeat of what happened three years ago. In 2005, Eidos was bought by SCi Entertainment after struggling to meet its loan covenants. The company decided to keep the name "Eidos," only to face circumstances in which it may suffer the same fate as its predecessor.

kooba: ft lex column. Eidos video games Published: January 9 2009 09:47 | Last updated: January 9 2009 19:31 Not even Lara Croft can fend off this mutant economy. Eidos, the London-based video game publisher, had been relying on the buxom, pistol-toting archaeologist – star of its Tomb Raider games – to carry it through the holiday season. That was before consumer demand collapsed faster than the Great Pyramid of Atlantis in the original hit Tomb Raider game. As a smaller video games publisher, Eidos is particularly vulnerable to the cyclical, hit-driven nature of the business. After a series of duds, Tomb Raider: Underworld, eighth in the series, has been generally well received by critics. But a weak performance in north America, where sputtering sales led retailers to cut orders and extract concessions from gamemakers in the Christmas run-up, left the company exposed. It has warned it may be forced into talks with banks over its £25m credit line if conditions do not improve. Eidos is a frequent subject of takeover rumours and the 26 per cent drop in its share price that followed yesterday's news could tempt bigger rivals to bite. With a market capitalisation of just £34m compared with an industry average of $2.7bn, Eidos is small. Even so, it punches above its weight thanks to Tomb Raider. Eidos is also working with Time Warner, which owns 20 per cent of the group, on a new Batman game, scheduled to launch later this year. There are only so many good story lines. A company such as Electronic Arts, which abandoned a bid to buy fellow industry heavyweight Take Two last year, might relish the opportunity to scoop up some high-profile characters at knockdown prices. The problem is that Eidos is aware of the value of its intellectual property, and has walked away from suitors before. Eidos should not be so picky this time. After all, if Lara can't save them, who says Batman can?

darrens: kooba, well, firstly ignore any buyout talks. There's never going to be a premium in the price for a buyout unless there are specific rumours/news indicating something. And given the times we live in I don't think a buyout is particularly likely anyway. In terms of the current price then it is simply drifting on incredibly low volumes so you can almost ignore the price on these sort of volumes unless you're looking to buy/sell. Looking wider, then valuations for VG publishers are in the toilet. Perhaps rightly. I won't bore everybody but I think the publishers are under a lot of pressure some of it self-inflicted and some because of external factors. This is going to weigh on Eidos to some degree. Also, while I think TRU has done okay, that's still subject to confirmation from Eidos. There's still a lot of uncertainty about exactly how many it sold worldwide (and at what price) so I can't see any of that being factored into the share price without confirmation from Eidos. I'm expressing a personal opinion (as one who saw this as life and death for Eidos) that I think it looks like they're still alive.
