GameStop disclosed in a regulatory filing that late last week Paul Raines, its CEO, underwent unexpected surgery during which a "very small, cancerous tumor was identified and successfully removed from an easily accessible part of the brain." The company added, "Because it was found very early, his doctors have advised him that his prognosis for a full and complete recovery is very good. The next step is for Paul to undergo preventive chemotherapy. Recovery from this process is expected to take about six weeks. This regimen will restrict his travel during that period, but will not interfere with his continued leadership of the Company." Daniel DeMatteo, Executive Chairman, said, "Speaking for the Board, we have every confidence in Paulís continued leadership and wish him a speedy recovery. While he recovers, our highly-tenured executive team will ensure that our business continues without interruption."
