Reference is made to the Form 8-K filed by GameStop Corp. (the “Company”) on November 14, 2017 reporting the reassignment of the principal executive officer responsibilities of the Company from J. Paul Raines to Daniel A. DeMatteo in light of a medical event experienced by Mr. Raines.
On January 31, 2018, Mr. Raines notified the Company that, in order to focus on his health and family, he has decided to resign as a director, effective immediately. Mr. Raines’ resignation was not the result of any disagreement with the Company or the Board of Directors on any matter relating to the Company’s operations, policies or practices. Mr. Raines’ employment with the Company will end in mid-March 2018.
Mr. Raines and the Company are parties to an employment agreement, which is an exhibit to a Current Report on Form 8-K filed by the Company on November 15, 2013. At this time, certain entitlements upon termination for Mr. Raines under the employment agreement have not been determined. The Company will file an amendment to this Form 8-K when such entitlements have been determined.
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.
