Q&A

What is your M&A strategy going forward?

Although acqusitive growth has been an important part of creating Embracer Group, we do not need acquisitions to grow in the future. However, we want to continue on the M&A path and add more publishers, studios and IP’s. Apart from achieving further diversification, and thus lowering the operational risk in the group, we believe we can create value by acquiring the right companies at the right price. We believe we can make acquired companies more valuable by enabling them to make more and better games. In other words, we buy to build.
