Schachter: EA likely to win Take-Two battle

By Patrick Garratt, Tuesday, 20 May 2008 18:14 GMT

UBS analyst Benjamin Schachter said this morning that EA is likely to succeed in acquiring Take-Two and that a bid in the $26-$28 range should seal the deal.

The analyst added, however, that “the timing may be protracted,” and while the stock is trading above the current bid price of $25.74 a share, “this is based more on deal speculation than underlying value.”

EA has now extended its tender offer on Take-Two after it’s previous bid ran out of time on Friday.
