Jørgen Madsen Lindemann, MTG President and CEO: “Our MTGx division is now present in three complementary digital storytelling verticals, each of which offers truly global potential. InnoGames is a perfect fit for our strategy of investing in relevant, complementary and scalable digital brands, content and communities. We are looking forward to working with the talented InnoGames team to build on their successful track record.”

MTG has the right to acquire a further 16% of the company at the same valuation up until the end of September 2017, as well as options to increase the shareholding further over time.
