Timing:  The stock price has fallen a bit recently, although it is still near the high end of its six month range
Reason:  Activision is in the process of acquiring Blizzard. The combined company will have strong products in both the console market and in the on-line subscription market. The latter market provides a stable source of income between releases of new games or new consoles.

Reason:  The stock price has been deteriorating slowly. The managers did not believe there would be a rebound in the near future, and would like to invest the money in some areas that appear more attractive.
