GAME Acquires Gamestation

2 05 2007

UK retailer GAME has acquired Gamestation for £74M. MCV reports:

“The two brands will be kept separate within the newly-expanded business as GAME looks to increase its appeal to the mainstream consumer, with Gamestation very much focused on the core gamer.

The total investment includes £300,000 which will be set aside for new stores, and an assumed working capital figure of £7.5 million.

The financial statement also reveals that Gamestation’s gross assets total £60.9 million.”
