Capcom has announced that at a recent investor meeting, shareholders voted to end its takeover defense. That leaves the publisher open to an acquisition, assuming another company buys enough stock to take it.
Gamasutra reports that Capcom originally put its takeover defense measures in place in 2008. Shareholders voted for the countermeasures then, but have now reversed course. It said in a statement that management will still "react to make necessary measures within the admissible limits of applicable laws and regulations."
