Eidos Profit Warning

LONDON -- Eidos PLC, the British computer-games company that created virtual heroine Lara Croft, said its year results would be well below last year's after product delays and poorer than expected Christmas trading. The profits warning hammered its shares, which have been popular with the growing ranks of private investors, many of whom have so far experienced only booming prices.

"The combination of product delays and in some instances disappointing performance has led the board to revise downward its expectations for the quarter and full year," Eidos said Tuesday.
