Just last year we reported that Reggie Fils-Aimé would be joining the GameStop board of directors alongside Bill Simon and J.K. Symancyk in order to help the company “make a ‘turnaround.’” Now it seems the trio will all be retiring from the board of directors, among five other directors, at the GameStop annual meeting in June, according to the 10-K form from the GameStop investor’s meeting that occurred yesterday.

The retirements of Fils-Aimé, Simon, Symancyk, and the other directors come after a turbulent year for GameStop due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the recent unpredictability of GameStop’s stock price thanks to r/wallstreetbets taking a zealous interest in the stock earlier this year.

 

 

There’s no telling exactly what GameStop’s plan is from here, as the retirements will leave them with a board of directors consisting of just three people and, as they stated in their 10-K form, their stock price fluctuations “have often been unrelated or disproportionate to the operating performance.”
