Game shares take a fresh fall

Game shares crashed a further 10 per cent yesterday, leaving the stock worth a shade over a penny and the firm with a market cap of £4.5m, as it fights for its survival on the high street. The group warned on Monday that it was “uncertain” whether discussions with lenders and suppliers would succeed, and that the stock could be left worthless, just weeks after securing a new loan facility from its banks. Rival Gamestop, restructuring group Hilco and private equity firm OpCapita have all been touted as likely suitors for the firm.
