GAN Announces Definitive Agreement to be Acquired by SEGA SAMMY CREATION
Total acquisition price is $107.6m and expected to close at the end of 2024.




Quote
Seamus McGill, Chairman and Interim Chief Executive Officer of GAN, commented:

"After a thoughtful review of value creation opportunities available to us, we are pleased to have reached this agreement with SSC. Market share concentration in the U.S. B2C space, a slower than expected adoption of regulated online gaming in the U.S., along with changes to key customer contracts make the near-term operating environment challenging without ample capital resources. Sega Sammy has those resources and GAN is a strategic complement to their existing gaming portfolio. We believe this all-cash offer, at a substantial premium to recent trading prices, is the value-maximizing path for our shareholders.”

The proposed merger is subject to the approval of GAN shareholders. The Company will ask its ...

No, SEGA Sammy Creation has been already operating in overseas countries, mostly in United States and Hong Kong.
GAN Limited is a fallen-from-grace backend software provider for casino operators in the United States and B2C online gaming operator in Europe and South America.
They are now kinda struggling and the question is .. Why would a $5bn market cap Japanese conglomerate be interested in making a distressed debt investment into a struggling US-listed nanocap?
It seems that the most likely reason is the potential full buyout and more time required to perform the due diligence.

No idea what I just watched... some Fist of the North Star thing I guess.

But what bothers me is Sammy ripping off Sega's classic jingle.

I still prefer the word "acquired".

Dr. Curien was bored... so he made his zombies race.

Not his first time being bored.



Those are some generic-ass names ever!

Tentative names, kinda like generic RPG character's job / class (paladin, monk, archer, warlock, cleric, etc).
Character's name is our name that we typed before we played the game.

It's a tribute to SEGA's game version.

And sidekicks prefer the word "assistant" but we know what's up.

I know Curien died, but it would had been a cool concept if Thornheart knew a guy on his payroll that did zombie outbreaks not for some philosophical world order like Goldman wanted on about... but because he was bored.

Yeah but I think those are the ski'ers actual names.

Not really, most young superheroes feel honoured if they could be / to be named "sidekick" by their heroes.
Captain America's Bucky, Batman's Robin (Tim Drake), Wonder Woman's Wonder Girl (Cassie), and even Powerpuff Girls.

I think I remember some TV series who had a villain doing something because he's bored while the protagonists thought some crazy and believable conspiracy theories but turned out no ... he's just bored.
I forget what series, She-Wolf of London may be.

Yeah but I think those are the ski'ers actual names.

What kind of parents named their kid Diva Diver.

Well, latest episode of Invincible, the "new Darkwing" was a bit touchy on the subject.

I'll look into it. Sounds fun. Protagonist trying to figure out the villains big end game, conspiracies and what-not when really... they were just bored.

What kind of parents name their kids "Band Girl" or "The Fighter"?
I bet these characters came up with their own names because they thought it sounded cool but just sounded ridiculous.
