[ August 3rd 2004 ]

In response to recent press speculation and following the announcement of a strategic review on 17 June 2004 the Board of Eidos confirms that, whilst it continues to keep all options under review, it is in preliminary discussions with a small number of parties in relation to possible business combinations. These discussions are at a preliminary stage and there can be no certainty as to whether or not they will lead to an offer being made for the Company in due course. The Board does not expect to be in a position to make a further announcement ahead of the Company's full year results.
