Take-Two shareholder sues over EA bid

A shareholder of Take-Two Interactive Software has sued the company over its rejection of Electronic Arts' takeover bid.

A shareholder of Take-Two Interactive Software has sued the company for rejecting Electronic Arts' $2 billion takeover bid , The Wall Street Journal reported Monday (subscription required to read entire article).

The suit was filed Friday in a Wilmington, Del., court. According to the Journal, the suit charges that Take-Two executives sought to enrich themselves at the expense of shareholders through a compensation agreement, amended in February after EA made a private offer for the company, that could grant them a big pay-out if Take-Two is acquired.

Two law firms--Prickett, Jones & Elliott, and Schiffrin, Barroway, Topaz & Kessler--filed the suit, which names Take-Two Chairman Strauss Zelnick and CEO Benjamin Feder as defendants.
