Eidos in Play?

Bonnier linked to 'raid' on Lara Croft publisher Eidos (thanks Mike Martinez) reports some action surrounding Eidos' stock that has lead to speculation that investor Robert Bonnier is making some sort of move on the company:

Eidos, the computer-games publisher best known in the City for its "Lara Croft" game, has demanded that a leading broker reveal the identity of a secretive investor who has amassed a 12m stake in the firm.

Rumours of an imminent takeover bid for Eidos are widespread, as is speculation that Robert Bonnier, the controversial former chief executive of, is building a stake.

Last week GNI, the London-based derivatives broker, announced that it had acquired 7.2m shares shares [sic] in the computer-games company.
Brokers say that GNI may have bought the shares to hedge a position possibly taken by Bonnier via a so-called "contract for difference" (CFD).
