Our story

About
MGG

Mogul Games Group is an ASX-listed gaming holding company building a family of studios with a clear potential for growth. 

We aim not only to provide funding but to add value through an in-house infrastructure focused on the game developers’ true needs. 

To achieve this, we need like-minded people on board. People who value integrity and quality instead of chasing fad trends, keeping their focus on what matters most: games and gamers.

As one of the few globally-focused listed gaming companies in Australia, we believe we are in a unique position to capitalise on the current consolidation trends happening in our industry. 

Our management team has developed a proven “buy-and-build” thesis through their professional tenure & successful track record of acquiring, integrating, realising synergies, and growing acquired businesses.

Mogul Games Group’s

Buy & Build
Strategy

BE A PART OF SOMETHING BIGGER

  • A buy and build strategy provides the acquired company with a platform for expansion and growth.
  • Value is added to both firms by means of synergies.

Multiple Arbitrage

  • Multiple arbitrage emanates from private and public companies being valued differently which means that a public company can acquire a private company and immediately arbitrage from the differences in valuation.
  • Multiple arbitrage increases the value of a company without making any operational changes to it.
