Lazaruswatch: Is RBS ready to buy up GAME?
It could be good news for GAME over the next 24 hours, with strong rumours abound that the wrecked retail chain is about to exit administration after only a few days. The potential buyer – why it’s only state-owned bank RBS!
Gaming website MCV has been told that a deal to save what’s left of GAME is incredibly close with things being sorted as soon as tomorrow if all goes well. There were reports that RBS were keen to buy the company before administration kicked in and 277 stores were closed.
An offer from OpCapita (which supposedly would have kept ALL the stores open for now) was rejected last weekend… erm, by RBS, who were also owed a truckload of money by GAME. Hmmm…
Watch this space though – it looks as though GAME may live to fight another day – part-owned by ALL OF US!
