gaming firm MTG acquires India’s PlaySimple for $360 million”,”content”:”rendered”:”

Swedish gaming giant Modern Times Group (MTG) has acquired Indian startup PlaySimple for at least $360 million, the two firms said Friday.n

MTG said it will pay 77% of the acquisition sum to Indian game developer and publisher in cash and the rest in company shares. Thereu2019s also another $150 million reward put aside if certain undisclosed performance metrics are hit, the two firms said.n

Fridayu2019s deal marks one of the largest exits in the Indian startup ecosystem. PlaySimple had raised $4 million Series A at a valuation of about $16 million from Elevation Capital and Chiratae Ventures in 2016. (The startup, which began its journey in Bangalore, raised just $4.5 million in total from external investors.)

And itu2019s clear why: the revenues of PlaySimple — which operates nine word games including u201cDaily Themed Crossword,u201d u201cWord Trip,u201d u201cWord Jam,u201d and u201cWord Warsu201d — grew by 144% y-o-y to $83 million last year and it was on track to hit over $60 million revenue in the first half of 2021.n

u201cWeu2019re very proud of the games weu2019ve developed over the years, and of the infrastructure and scale that weu2019ve achieved with our team,” saidu00a0PlaySimple co-founders and management team members — Siddhanth Jain, Suraj Nalin and Preeti Reddy — in a joint statement.n

“As we join the MTG family, we look forward to leveraging our proprietary technology across MTGu2019s gaming portfolio, expanding into the European market, investing in cutting-edge technology and building exciting new games.u201dn

PlaySimple, which says its free-to-play games have amassed over 75 million installs and maintain nearly 2 million daily active users, plans to launch a number of games later this year and also expand into the card games genre.n

“PlaySimple is a rapidly growing and highly profitable games studio that quickly has established itself as one of the leading global developers of free-to-play word games, an exciting new genre for MTG,” said Maria Redin, MTG Group President and CEO, said in a statement.n

The Stockholm-headquartered firm, which has also acquired Hutch and Ninja Kiwi in recent quarters, said PlaySimple will help it build a diversified gaming vertical. “Scaling and diversifying the GamingCo [an MTG subsidiary] helps to accelerate the operational performance while at the same time creating a more stable business,” the firm said.n”,”protected”:false,”excerpt”:”rendered”:”
