The asset will be directly managed by GIG affiliate marketing division ‘Innovation Labs’ and sees the company expand its geographical footprint for industry player acquisition services.
GIG governance informs that the acquisition will be settled through the funds gained from its recent SEK 400 million (£35 million) bond issuance credited last February to strengthen the firms continued M&A strategy.
Commenting on the firm’s acquisition note, Robin Reed, CEO of GIG.
“We aim to make Innovation Labs the largest lead generation business in iGaming. Through this acquisition, we are entering the DACH markets whom are likely to be re-regulated in the future, and are therefore markets we are increasingly focusing on. This acquisition will enable Innovation Labs to refer more German speaking customers to our B2B partners and thus benefit all parties engaged in the expanding GIG iGaming eco-system”
