Take 2 have reported their financial results for Q1 Fiscal 2005, attributing good performance in part to GTA: San Andreas. The company has stated that sales of the game have exceeded 12 million units since launch.

The expected launch date accouncement for GTA: PSP was not made, with the company planning release in the "3rd Quarter" of Fiscal 2005, around the same time as GTA San Andreas is released on PC and Xbox (June 7th/10th).

Nothing new was announced during the conference call which took place shortly after the press release was issued.

Fiscal - means the year (quarter) for the company, it's different from the real year quarter.
for example: Q1 2005 (is JAN FEB MAR) but Q1 Fiscal 2005 for Take2 (is NOV DEC of 2004 JAN of 2005).
2 Neil: listening - is that possible?
Oh I see: http://ir.take2games.com/medialist.cfm

My grammar is based on education in UK English, which differs from American English.

I see Take 2 as a group of people, rather than a single entity. You may choose to see it differently, and it seems that American English is like this.

International Business principles states that corporations are seperate single entitys in their entirity, and as such are referred to as their own being. So no, it's not the American way or whatever. It's the worlds way. ;)

anywho....

Fiscal Year defined. Let's say a company needs major financial reports due, in July. They very well can't just report half a years worth of data can they? No. So for them, they start keeping track of new data in July, instead of January. So first quarter of a CALENDAR year would be January to March. First quarter for this companies FISCAL year would be July to September.

Also....

For the data they show, they have a suprisingly bad P/E ratio. Well, that's not their fault I suppose, can always blame the stagnant economy.

Simple enough.
