In the wake of shareholder interest in replacing the board and CEO
, it's little wonder that Take-Two's future is in question. Gamespot is reporting on the possibility of the company being sold
to an outside party. Analysts from Wedbush Morgan and Nollenberger Capital offer up opinions on possible interested investors, and the likelihood of the company being sold. "Pachter said a sale was unlikely, noting that a prospective buyer could have picked up the publisher during its stock slump last year for about half what it would have to pay now. In last month's note, Pachter pegged a purchase price of $2 billion (including a premium on the stock price and restructuring costs) on the publisher."
