The company's stock fell 73 percent today to finish at $0.35 cents.

Clearlake will acquire all of THQ's studios and all games in development. Additionally, the bankruptcy and sale will let the company "shed certain legacy obligations and emerge with the strong financial backing of a new owner with substantial experience in software and technology."
