Leif Gram: Mr. Fix

Капитал и регулирование

gamesindustry.biz -- GameStop could have paid off hundreds of millions of dollars in debt by capitalising on the short squeeze of its shares -- but US regulations restricted it from doing so. That's according to sources close to the matter speaking to Reuters, who said the retail chain examined the possibility of selling some of its stock during the rush. It had even registered with the US Securities and Exchange Commission in December to sell $100 million worth of stock, but decided not to exercise this option. GameStop reportedly decided that financial regulations prevented the company from selling shares because it had not informed investors of its latest earnings.
