The UK retailer has also named "MJA Jervis and SD Maddison" as Joint Administrators of The GAME Group plc to manage their affairs business and property as their agents and without personal liability.
The struggle and hide and seek game that UK retailer GAME was playing has finally come to an end. The firm has submitted an application to removed it from stock exchange since there is no "equity value left in the Group".
The retailer just issued a press statement which reads, "Further to the announcements of 12 March 2012 and 14 March 2012, the board of GAME has assessed the status of the ongoing and regular discussions between GAME and its lending banks and between its lending banks and a potential third party provider of finance to the business.
"The Board now considers itself to be unable to assess the business's financial position, and is of the opinion that there is no equity value left in the Group. Therefore the Company has requested that the listing of its securities on the Main Market of London Stock Exchange plc be suspended from trading with effect from 7:30am today.
"The Company will provide a further update in due course."
All rescue door for retailer GAME seems to have closed now. According to reports from Reuters, GAME management team has told investors, "It is uncertain whether any of the solutions currently being explored by the board will be successful or will result in any value being attributed to the shares of the company."
This was always on the card as things got worst for GAME earlier today as its shares fall below 1p level putting it into a "Trash Stock" category, which implies that GAME is not worth anything now.
For GAME now there is only two possible outcome, first is either it will shup all its shop, or other retail gaint like GAMESTOP will jump in any buy out GAME.
It has been officially confirmed that UK retailer GAME will not stock EA's upcoming game Mass Effect 3, not only this, the retailer has confirmed that after SSX launch they won't stock any EA titles.
