Item 2.06 Material Impairments
On January 10, 2018, GameStop Corp. concluded that a non-cash, pre-tax impairment charge in the range of $350 million to $400 million will be recorded in the fourth quarter of the fiscal year ending February 3, 2018, primarily associated with acquired dealer agreement intangible assets and goodwill in its Technology Brands segment. The conclusion was made in connection with GameStop Corp.’s annual impairment testing of goodwill and intangible assets, which is not yet finalized. While the Technology Brands segment remains profitable, recent financial performance measures indicate that future sales and profitability no longer support the entire carrying value of its goodwill and intangible assets. No cash expenditures are anticipated as a result of the impairment charge.

On January 12, 2018, GameStop Corp. issued a press release announcing its sales results for the nine-week holiday period ended December 30, 2017. A copy of the press release is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1.

Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
