STOCKHOLM, Sept 18 (Reuters) - Swedish gaming company Stillfront SFRG.ST said on Friday has agreed to buy Croatia-based mobile games developer Nanobit for about $100 million as it looked to broaden its gaming audience.
Stillfront will buy Nanobit in two separate transactions, both consisting of payments that are 70% in cash and 30% in newly issued shares.
"With the acquisition of Nanobit, Stillfront expands our footprint into the narrative lifestyle role playing games (RPG) genre," Stillfront CEO Jorgen Larsson said in a statement.
Stillfront said the deal would yield "attractive earnings" with Nanobit expected to make around 620 million Swedish crowns ($70.68 million) in revenue in 2020 and reach an EBIT margin of 17-22%.
The Swedish company will purchase 78% of Nanobit at the end of this month with the remainder of the deal expected to conclude in 2023, it said.
