Take-Two CEO discusses acquisition rumours

Strauss Zelnick says he’s delighted with Take-Two’s ability to turn a profit in non-Grand Theft Auto years, but that doesn’t necessarily mean the CEO’s in a rush to cash in on the LA Noire publisher’s recently elevated stock. “I’m proud of what we’ve delivered,” he says. “I’m proud of the value we’ve created for shareholders in the past few years. I’m proud the team has had precious few missteps. But, we’re there for the shareholders. All public companies are potentially available. Every time something has come up we’ve considered it. All that said, we enjoy being an independent company.”
