Osborne Clarke advised the South Korean game developer Com2uS on its acquisition of Out of the Park Developments GmbH & Co. KG (OOTP) based near Hamburg.
The game developer Com2uS is best known for Summoners War, one of the top-selling mobile games worldwide, which is also very popular in German-speaking countries. With OOTP, Com2uS secures development resources on site in Germany. Founded in 1999, the medium-sized company OOTP is a specialist in sports simulations, known for its PC games Out of the Park Baseball and Franchise Hockey Manager.
“I am very pleased that Com2uS successfully completed its first international M&A deal acquiring a German company. This is a strong signal for our future strategic commitment in Europe”, says David Mohr, managing director of the European Com2uS branch.
“The game developer market is developing rapidly and is becoming increasingly international. That makes this complex transaction particularly exciting and important for us,” says Osborne Clarke partner Robin Eyben.
Osborne Clarke’s team, led by Maximilian Vocke and Robin Eyben (both Corporate / M & A), consisted of Dana Alpar (Corporate / M & A), Konstantin Ewald, Arne Ruhwinkel, Adrian Schneider, Christian Woger, Vera Eickhoff, Philipp Sümmermann (all IT , IP, Data Protection), Florian Merkle (Tax), Robert Rentsch, Kamissa Kruse, Alexander Schlicht (all Employment), Philipp-Gerald Hammes and Sonja Böhmer (both Real Estate).
