Nazara Technologies also holds a 54% stake in esports firm Nodwin Gaming, which organises events and tournaments, primarily earning revenues via advertising, sponsorships, and media rights. PublishME works as a marketing agency with a number of publishers and brands in the gaming industry. Its website lists firms such as Activision, Garena, Supercell,Ubisoft, and Nvidia among its clientele.
“The synergies between Nodwin and PublishME were extremely evident to us, and Nodwin was also looking to expand their footprint in the Middle East. This deal makes perfect sense if we want to exploit these synergies,” Nitish Mittersain, chief executive of Nazara Technologies told ET in an interaction.
Following the sale, PublishME founder Ozalp will transition to become the chief executive of Nodwin Gaming Dubai. PublishME will also rename itself to Nodwin Gaming in West Asia, but will retain the PublishME name in its original market, Turkey.
“As Nodwin Gaming continues to expand its presence across the globe, with particular emphasis on pivotal emerging markets, i.e., the new BRICS global network, the inclusion of PublishME stands as a natural and integral progression to allow us to help publishers and brands understand and access this emerging market,” said Akshat Rathee, Co-Founder and Managing Director, Nodwin Gaming.
