Growing number of Eidos shareholders support Square Enix buyout

The percentage keeps on growing as Eidos stockholders get in line to support a takeover by Square Enix. MCV reports that Pioneer Investment Management, a ten percent shareholder in the house of Hitman and Croft, is supporting the $120 million buyout.

Warner Bros., which controls 20 percent of the stock, has already agreed that a purchase by the powerhouse publisher of androgyny would be best for the ailing British company. Square Enix now has public approval from 45 percent of shareholder, and an Eidos vote on the acquisition will occur at the company board meeting in late March. Soon after, Agent 47 will prefer an over-sized sword to his Silverballers, and Lady Croft will wake up with a bad case of anime hair.
