If you think it's been too long since we reported on the financial state of Interplay you'll be mildly pleased to hear that they just filed a Form 8-K about settling a debt with Atari. Fallout connection: tenuous.
On July 24, 2008, the Company entered into an Option Exercise Agreement (the "Agreement") with Atari Interactive, Inc. ("Atari Interactive"). Under the Agreement, Atari Interactive and the Company settled outstanding disputes among them, including in connection with an existing Promissory Note dated August 19, 2004 of the Company in favor of Atari Interactive (the "Note"). Pursuant to the Agreement, Atari Interactive exercised an existing option to purchase, and purchased, from the Company intellectual property rights developed by the Company in connection with the Dungeons & Dragons games and the balance of all amounts due from the Company to Atari Interactive under the Note of approximately $1,050,000.00 was cancelled and terminated.So away goes the Dark Alliance IP and the result is not more money to fund FOOL, but less debt, which may or may not amount to the same thing.
