Also in its first quarter, Take-Two completed the acquisition of TDK Mediactive, Inc., a California based publisher of videogames based on popular licensed properties, including The Haunted Mansion, Pirates of the Caribbean, The Land Before Time, Robotech, The Muppets and Corvette. Upon closing, TDK Mediactive was renamed Take-Two Licensing. Products planned for the first quarter from TDK's portfolio include Star Trek(TM): Shattered Universe for PlayStation(R)2 and Xbox(TM).

To streamline Take-Two's publishing operations, the Company has reorganized and consolidated its publishing business into the following three labels: Rockstar Games, Gathering and Global Star. Rockstar will continue to focus on premium priced, groundbreaking entertainment. Gathering, which has historically focused on PC titles, with only a small selection of console products, will now serve as the publisher of all mid-priced and non-Rockstar premium priced products on the PC, console and handheld platforms. Global Star will publish PC, console and handheld titles that retail for $19.99 and below. The Gotham Games label has been phased out. Gotham's catalog of products, along with TDK's licensed product portfolio, will be published by either Gathering or Global Star, depending upon the price point of the title. Global Star's products will be sold exclusively through our Jack of All Games' sales force, further strengthening Jack of All Games' dominant position in the value-priced product category. In addition, Jack of All Games' United States and Canadian distribution operations will be consolidated operationally to extend the reach of our domestic value console business into Canada.
