InvestGame has prepared the Global Gaming Deals Activity Report Q1-Q3’21. For the first 9 months of 2021, we saw more deals than for 2020FY. Together, these deals bring 72% more in value, than that of 2020. Here are some of the major insights:
Q1-Q3’21 shows a 2.5x growth YoY in terms of the cumulative deal value ($57.7B vs. $22.7B), and a 46% growth YoY in the number of deals (667 vs. 457), with substantial upsurge in all categories, including M&As ($27.9B vs. $8.4B), public offerings ($21.2B vs. $9.6B) and private investments ($8.6B vs. $4.7B)
224 M&As provided for nearly half (48%) of the closed deal value. Public offerings saw 59 transactions, accounting for around 37% of the total value. Private investments contributed 15% with 384 closed deals
Blockchain gaming section (which we’ve covered together with our friends at Naavik) is truly on fire: Q3’21 alone got an outstanding $1B+ deal value across 16 deals, while the cumulative Q1-Q3’21 deal value of $1.56B represents an overwhelming 34x growth YoY. The biggest rounds of Q1-Q3’21 are Sorare Series B ($680m), Dapper Labs Series B+ ($250m), and Forte Series A ($185m)
