The only thing that stops the dust is the rain. It’s a sweet reprieve, but there is no middle ground. The land is either as dry as the Betty Ford clinic, or as wet as the ocean floor. Everything can be seen from the ridge overlooking Armadillo as John Marston gently bounces along atop...

US Trustee And Creditors File Objections Against Sale Of THQ

Posted on Friday, January 4 @ 12:00:15 PST by Alex_Osborn


After filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy a few weeks ago, the plan was for THQ to be scooped up by Clearlake Capital Group. In this way, the publisher's stable of studios would remain unharmed and business could continue as usual. Now, that may no longer be the case.

US Trustee Roberta DeAngelis has filed an objection against the sale of THQ to Clearlake Capital, taking issue with the 30-day purchase window. According to DeAngelis, the timeframe was not long enough to allow for other interested parties to bid on the publisher.

In addition, a number of THQ's creditors have found the sale to be problematic, filing an objection against the sale of the publisher. The objection claims that the process seems like it was "designed specifically to thwart any potential bidders from stepping forward to compete with Clearlake's bid." They also found the "requirement that prospective purchasers bid on the Debtors 'as a whole' rather than on a 'piecemeal' or 'title-by-title' basis" to be problematic as well.

A hearing is set to take place today, so be sure to check back very soon for an update on THQ's situation.
