FunRock AB (under name change to Fragbite Group AB) has today entered into an agreement to acquire all shares in a European games publisher (“the Target Company”), which is an established games publisher that publishes indie games mainly for mobile phones, tablets and consoles.

The Target Company currently employs 15 people.

The Target Company will be acquired at an initial purchase price of EUR 5 million on a cash- and debt-free basis, where EUR 3 million will be paid in cash upon closing and the remaining EUR 2 million will be paid with newly issued shares that will be issued at a price of SEK 4 per share. The shares will be subject to a lock-up in 12 months from Fragbite Group's planned listing. In addition to the initial purchase price, the Seller of the Target Company may receive an additional earn-out of maximum of EUR 3.5 million:
