Modern Times Group MTG AB (publ) (“MTG”) is happy to announce that it has signed an agreement that enables US studio Monumental to acquire its USA and Chilean-based studio Kongregate.

The deal brings together two gaming companies that share a strong vision of the future of gaming. Led by Monty Kerr, both studios have extensive experience in traditional mobile gaming, and the expertise to deepen and enrich the combined portfolio of more than 40 titles.

MTG’s Group President and CEO Maria Redin comments:

“We are happy to have found the right home for the next chapter in Kongregate’s journey. Monumental has a strong track record of managing and growing games and we are convinced that combining the two portfolios is the right step forward. I wish the teams the best of luck as they now begin their journey together.”

CEO of Monumental Monty Kerr comments:

“We are overjoyed to welcome Kongregate into the Monumental family. We can’t wait to see what comes next, and we’re incredibly excited to be part of Kongregate’s future.”

The transaction has been closed and will be reported in MTG’s financial results for the first quarter of 2024. MTG will be part of Monumental’s ongoing journey thanks to its fully diluted 30% shareholding. The group’s stake represents less than 20% of the votes in the company and will be reported as a financial asset within the “Shares and participations in associated and other companies” line on MTG’s balance sheet.

With the acquisition, Kongregate will be fully integrated into Monumental.
