The makers of “Candy Crush Saga” are reportedly considering what may be a sweet treat for investors.
According to rumblings reaching as far as The Wall Street Journal on Tuesday, Midasplayer International Holding Co., the publisher of some of the biggest online and mobile games in the world, is planning to go public.
Midasplayer, better known as King, has tapped banks including J.P. Morgan Chase & Co., Credit Suisse Group AG, and Bank of America Corp. to handle a potential offering, these people said. They cautioned that the pricing and timing of any deal had not yet been completed.
For now, the company isn’t publicly committing to an IPO, but a spokesperson confirmed that the prospect is certainly on the table.
“King’s success and growth presents numerous opportunities for the business to develop further, and one option would be to take the company public. However, while it’s an option for the future, we would not comment on when we could consider making such a decision,” a company rep said today.
