Zelnick shrugs off EA talk, says Take-Two has "independent" future

Speaking here, Take-Two boss Strauss Zelnick has dismissed EA's $2 billion bid for the firm, saying that Take-Two's future remains as an "independent" company.

"We are here for our shareholders," he said. "[EA] made a proposal, we rejected it. Next!"

Zelnick added: "We've been at Take-Two only for ten months and are really proud of the progress we've made. And we think this company has a really bright future as an independent company. In the absence of an opportunity that our shareholders value more than this approach, that's our business model."

Take-Two is to deliver Q1 financials next week, so expect plenty more on the EA offer in the coming days.
