It's gone through quite a few owners. After Warner Bros bought it from Nolan Bushnell, they sold it to Commodore founder Jack Tramiel (on $240 million in promissory notes and many loans from Warner to keep Atari afloat and$50 cash (yes, FIFTY BUCKS) from Tramiel. They basically paid HIM to take the company!). After he couldn't beat Nintendo, he then traded it to a disk drive company (JTG, I believe but I may be off a letter) in exchange for stock and a seat on their board). They in turn sold it to Hasbro for 5 million and then Hasbro got taken over by Infogrames who then took the Atari name for the company.
