Games Global has made the decision to postpone its initial public offering (IPO) in the United States. The company, which recently entered the U.S. igaming market, has seen strong investor interest due to its positive business performance. However, the Board of Directors has determined that it is in the best interest of stakeholders to delay the offering for now.

Walking it back

Although the registration statement for the IPO has been filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, it has not yet become effective. This means that the securities cannot be sold, and offers to buy them cannot be accepted until the registration statement is deemed effective.

The decision to postpone the IPO comes as the company continues to evaluate strategic opportunities that align with its long-term strategy. Despite the delay, Games Global Limited remains committed to monitoring the timing for the proposed offering and will assess when it is most advantageous to proceed.

US growth

The company’s entry into the U.S. gaming market earlier this year has positioned it for growth and expansion. With its underlying business performing well, Games Global Limited aims to capitalize on the opportunities presented in the gaming industry.

While the specific reasons for the postponement have not been disclosed, it is not uncommon for companies to adjust their IPO plans based on market conditions and other factors.

Investors who have shown interest in the IPO will need to wait for the registration statement to become effective before any further action can be taken. In the meantime, Games Global Limited will continue to explore strategic opportunities to further enhance its position in the gaming market.

As the company evaluates the timing for its proposed IPO, it remains focused on its long-term strategy and aims to deliver value to its stakeholders.

“While we are disappointed not to be entering the public markets in the near term, meeting with investors during this IPO process has further cemented our confidence in our strategy and that what we are building at Games Global is unique,” said Walter Bugno, CEO of Games Global.

“With a strong balance sheet, healthy margins, and meaningful growth, an IPO at this point in time was an accelerator, not an absolute necessity, for our business strategy,” continued Bugno.

“Our team remains committed to delivering the most innovative games on the market. We will continue to monitor the capital markets going forward and make the appropriate reconsiderations as to an IPO in the future.”
