Miniclip makes strategic investment in leading Romanian studio, Green Horse Games
Miniclip, a world leader of market-defining mobile titles, announced today a strategic investment through which it has become the majority shareholder in Green Horse Games.
Founded in 2013 by George Lemnaru, Green Horse Games is the studio behind the highly successful Football Rivals. This deal provides the perfect opportunity for Miniclip to step into the Romanian gaming eco system and is further evidence of their strong presence and continued growth within mobile sports.
George Lemnaru, CEO of Green Horse Games said “Green Horse Games has had a long- stated mission to build amazing games based on group collaboration. Welcoming Miniclip as a strategic investor is an exciting moment for us as a company and for the growing game development scene in Romania. We, as a team, are very excited to have this opportunity to work closely with our friends at Miniclip to create world class games together”. He went on to say “I would also like to take this opportunity to thank our investors and supporters who are no longer going to be involved in the business. They have been instrumental in our success so far and, without them, we would not have been able to get to this point”.
“We are delighted to have this opportunity to work more closely with George, his Co-Founder Alexandru Stroe and the great team at Green Horse Games.” said Jurgen Post, CEO of Miniclip. “We have admired their work from afar for a long time and are very excited about the opportunities that this new partnership provides.”
