The parent company THQ Nordic AB would like to confirm this distribution strategy and clarify the back-ground and business rationale of the partnership.
THQ Nordic AB (publ) is the Swedish parent company listed on the Stockholm Stock exchange that owns three independently operating sub-groups;
Lars Wingefors, co-founder and group CEO of THQ Nordic AB (publ), commented:
“I fully support our sub-groups’ autonomy to run their respective businesses. I believe it’s in the group’s, and ultimately the consumers’, best interest that business decisions are made close to the market and this is the group’s consistent business model."
“I firmly believe that Deep Silver and Koch Media have carefully considered the advantages and disadvantages, opportunities and risks in their decision to go solely with Epic Games Store. The decision has my full support.”
“I have noted that there is some confusion about the two different THQ Nordic entities, the parent company and the operating entity in Vienna. As already communicated to shareholders last year, the parent company will change its name to better reflect its status”.
