As I said before (when my thread was unceremoniously deleted) Funcom is being bought out by EA or Activision.
Following completion and launch of the modern-day,
massively multiplayer online game, 'The Secret
World', Funcom N.V. has retained ABG Sundal Collier
and GP Bullhound to undertake a broad review of the
strategic options available to the company. Funcom
will update shareholders and other stakeholders about
the outcome of the review and potential other
developments in due course.
GP Bullhound is the merger firm, and Sundal Collier is probably the financing catalyst.
Should not less than a year for the buyout to happen, as I reported earlier.
Edit: For those less familiar with mergers and acquisitions, you would not bring on both the bank and the merger company unless you had serious buyers. If you were merely scoping the market out, Funcom would have only hired GP Bullhound. This means a buyout is imminent.
And on that note, Funcom is priced at an all-time low of 1.36 today (25 cents U.S. per share). There should be no question that the company will be purchased for more than this: makes its purchase a no brainer as a stock.
And this is from someone who has shorted the company twice in 4.5 years (wow time flies).
