Casual Connect Europe 2017 – Triple Threats & the Most Active Acquirers in Europe
Fenwick & West partner and corporate attorney, Mark Stevens, moderates this panel of three of the four largest European game companies and the U.S. publisher with the highest-ticket acquisition of 2014. The past several months were hot for gaming M&A, yielding history's three largest mobile gaming acquisitions–all of which Stevens led. This panel of billion-dollar global game publisher-investors discuss how they play across three dimensions: equity investment, M&A, and delivery of business value (such as top game IP). Panelists include Jaakko Harlas, Strategic Finance, Supercell; Sean Lee, Chief Corporate Development Officer, Wargaming.net; Chris Petrovic, SVP, Corporate & Business Development, Zynga Inc; and Oscar Navarro, VP Mergers & Acquisitions, Ubisoft.
