Tomb Raider publisher wants to know who has amassed 5 percent of its stock.
Eidos, publishers of the Tomb Raider, Hitman, and Deus Ex franchises, wants to unmask the mystery person who has been investing heavily in the company. Last week, London brokerage firm GNI announced it had acquired 7.2 million shares of Eidos. The firm, however, didn't say on whose behalf it held the shares, which equate to a 5 percent of the publisher. According to an article in London's Daily Telegraph, Eidos has since filed an official request to unmask the investor.
The story cites rumors that Robert Bonnier, a former investment banker who was once the CEO of European directory Scoot.com, might be the one behind the move. Bonnier apparently has a history of using his financial influence to take important positions in several companies, including Regus, a property company, and financial software maker The Innovation Group.
