July 2nd, 2013 — gamigo AG acquires 100% of the Austrian company Airwin Entertainment GmbH from A1 Telekom Austria AG. The company hereby expands its Online games portfolio to mobile games. Airwin Entertainment was founded in 2011 and has a platform for the distribution and billing of games for mobile telephones. This is scalable and offers a wide range of mobile games: from casual and skill games to complex games and real-time betting. This platform is usable as an own brand as well as white label or B2B platform for feature and smart phones.
Remco Westermann, Chairman of the Board at gamigo, says the following about the meaning of the mobile sector: “Studies show that the mobile sector has the highest percentage of growth. Both the supply and demand are growing constantly and the market distinguishes itself with an extreme dynamic.”
Airwin Entertainment will use the synergies from gamigo, but will also keep its own separate location in Vienna. Cooperation with A1 Telekom Austria AG will thereby continue in the future. Furthermore, Online games shall be made available via other networks from international mobile providers.
gamigo AG’s company goal is to encourage both organic growth, for example by expanding the games portfolio, as well as inorganic growth by acquisitions in the area of Online and mobile multiplayer games. In order to be able to use the chances of the fast-growing market of multiplayer Online games, gamigo successfully placed a company bond a short while ago. gamigo AG consequently implements its strategy with the acquisition of Airwin Entertainment GmbH.
