Online games publishers Gamigo and Aeria are undergoing a ‘strategic merger’

If you buy all of this sight unseen, I believe there's an expression about fools and money that pertains.

Gamigo and Aeria are swapping keys and moving in together, the companies announced today. The European online and mobile games publishers

“[…] have agreed [upon] a strategic merger of their companies and are together taking the next step toward creating a leading platform on the consolidation of the European games market. The merger is a logical move for both firms, which have successfully acquired, integrated, and consolidated several games companies and assets in recent years.

“Combining the two complementary online and mobile games portfolios will make it possible to tap substantial synergy potential. The joint company has a wide reach, marketing its games in over 40 countries, with a focus on Europe and North America. The new publisher has offices in Berlin, Hamburg, Münster, Seoul, Chicago, and San Francisco. The company boasts numerous strong and popular client and browser games (including Echo of Soul, Fiesta Online, Aura Kingdom, and Desert Operations) as well as titles in the fast-growing mobile segment (including Goal One and Dawn of Gods) and already has various new games in the pipeline (including Diddl and Bless) for the coming years.

“[…] As part of the transaction, ProSiebenSat.1 is contributing its 100% holding in Aeria Games to gamigo AG and will become a minority shareholder in the merged publisher with a 33 percent stake. ProSiebenSat.1 acquired Aeria Games Europe in February 2014, since when it has pushed ahead with the mobile side of the publisher’s business in particular.”
