[ March 7th 2002 ]

London-based videogame publisher Eidos Interactive has been dropped from the Financial Times Share Index 250 following recent circuit turmoil's which culminated fourth quarter 2001 with a 55m investment acquisition from its shareholders. The changes will take effect March 18th 2002.

Despite riding a financial rollercoaster during the past twelve months, Eidos is confident a series of anticipated videogame titles due to make their commercial debuts later this year and the launch of Microsoft Corp's XBOX console will restore the company's stature. The company has also received an orchestra of positive notes from investment brokers Goldman Sachs during first quarter 2002.

Eidos Interactive Inc. is a leading developer and publisher of interactive entertainment products for the PC, PlayStation game console, PlayStation2 computer entertainment system, Nintendo, Game Boy Color and the Xbox video game system from Microsoft. Eidos Interactive is part of London-based Eidos plc with additional offices in San Francisco, Paris, Hamburg, Tokyo and Singapore.

Other companies relegated from the FTSE top 250 performers are office space firm Regus, biotech firm Oxford Glycosciences and Henderson Small Companies Investment Trust. Moving up into the FTSE 250 index are Northgate, Acambis, Westbury, SIG, New Look, Medisys, and Paragon.
