SCi has released an interim management statement that discusses the company's first fiscal quarter results and specifies that it has no new information to release regarding any possible takeover.

"We have nothing to add to this earlier statement at this point but confirm that we continue to be in discussions," read the statement.

The release also noted that unit sales increased by 14 per cent year on year, despite no major product launches, and success was spurred on by Pony Friends for the DS - although the higher numbers of games sold were at generally lower price points.

The company stated that early sales of Kane and Lynch: Dead Men in the US were positive, and that it would issue an updated statement in January.

It had been previously speculated that Ubisoft and Warner Bros were interested in acquiring SCi, but Ubisoft subsequently ruled itself out of the running, while Warner Bros added Traveller's Tales to its books instead.

Electronic Arts, Sony and an unnamed Chinese company have also been touted as possible bidders.
