Platinum Equity recently announced it signed an agreement to acquire the mobile gaming platform Game Taco. As part of this deal, Game Taco will also acquire WorldWinner, a pioneer skill-based title developed by GSN Games.
The two companies will now be merged into one to create a premium skills competition platform. Media executive David Nathanson will serve as a minority co-investor and as Executive Chairman of the combined businesses while Game Taco founder Joshua Barrow will be the organization’s CEO.
“This investment brings together two complementary businesses under a powerful leadership team with an exciting vision for growth,” said Platinum Equity Partner Jacob Kotzubei. “Platinum’s carve-out experience and operational expertise will help ensure a seamless transition and integration, maximizing the talents and technology of both companies.”
The financial details of this deal have not been disclosed at this time.
