We get a new and interesting message that is indirectly related to Nintendo. We are talking in this case about information about Square Enix.
Specifically, a recent report from Eurogamer indicates that the company “seeks to improve capital efficiency” by selling shares in their studios. This is believed after the recent sale of several Square Enix studios to Embracer Group: this would be the first phase of the plans to diversify its capital.
It has also been confirmed that the resources would focus “on games developed in Japan, with European and American studios being the most affected”. Analysts believe that companies like Sony, Tencent y Nexon they would be interested in buying part of the Square Enix studios.
In any case, this report has caused Square Enix shares to increase 11% today. We will have to be attentive to see if purchases and sales finally take place in your environment.
7) Phase 2 = So SE is looking to sell stakes in its studios to others to improve capital efficiency. Right when others like Sony etc are buyers. I would expect Sony, Tencent, Nexon etc would be interested.
