The acquisition will help Nodwin “enhance the company’s existing capabilities to offer solutions to publishers and brands in the Middle East and the Turkey region,” the firm said in a statement. On October 6, Nodwin had fully acquired game marketing agency Publishme, which focuses on West Asia and Turkey, for $2 million.

The latest acquisition “also readies Nodwin Gaming to expand to Central Asia, where the mobile games market is experiencing rapid growth,” the firm added in a statement.

Nodwin is a subsidiary of listed gaming and media firm Nazara Technologies, where it is the largest revenue driver of the parent firm. For the quarter ended December, Nodwin brought in Rs 134 crore in revenue. However, the division registered a negative earnings before tax, depreciation and amortisation (Ebitda) of Rs 2 crore, said Nitish Mittersain, cofounder and chief executive of Nazara Technologies.

At the time, Mittersain had told ET that the parent firm was “not pushing for margins for Nodwin” as the firm believes that “it is a business with a very large growth opportunity, and we would prefer an aggressive growth stance for the near future for this division”.
