In reporting its 2010 First Quarterly Results yesterday, 4Kids Entertainment revealed that it has “received a non-binding indication of interest from a third party to acquire 4Kids for a price representing a premium over the recent closing prices for the Company’s common stock…” 4Kids underlined that there is no assurance that the deal with the potential buyer will go through. Additionally, 4Kids market capitalization has declined below the minimum $15 million market capitalization and thus the company’s shares could be delisted soon.
