Zenimax raised $105 million to buy id

Best put that receipt in a safe place. 

Newly published financial documents have revealed ZeniMax raised USD 105 million to buy id Software last month.

As reported by Venturebeat, the money was raised "in connection with the acquisition of substantially all of the assets of id Software". However, the documents don't say whether USD 105 million was the final cost of buying the studio.

It has been confirmed though that id president Todd Hollenshead now sits on ZeniMax's board, probably on a throne made of diamonds and caviar.
