San Francisco has benefited from the most creative minds in the gaming industry. GREE International is serving up social network games and multiplayer mobile games that will motivate the novice gamer to the expert player to be the best. Offered on Google Play and iTunes App Store, my list of games brings hours of gameplay for all ages.
Scanning the headlines brings mixed reports on GREE International. The verdict is still out on the success of the young founder and CEO of GREE International but it is for certain that in five years, Yoshikazu Tanaka became Japan’s youngest billionaire as investors piled into Gree Inc. (3632), valuing his controlling stake in the early maker of phone-based games at $4 billion. In just over a year, assets have shrunk to about $1.4 billion according to Bloomberg.com.
What caught my eye in this Bloomberg read is what a financial forecaster said: “Gree is investing aggressively for future growth,” said Keiichi Yoneshima, a Tokyo-based analyst at Barclays Plc., who expects the shares to climb to 1,600 yen, the fourth-highest of estimates compiled by Bloomberg. “The valuation of the company’s shares is very cheap.”
The article also remarked on the company’s acquisitions. Since 2009, Gree has been on a shopping spree where the company has acquired stakes in 17 enterprises, including Pokelabo Inc. and Funzio Inc., according to data compiled by Bloomberg. And most recently, Gree formed a mobile-game partnership with Yahoo Japan Corp, Japan’s biggest Web portal. The game developer also tied up with Pac-Man creator Namco Bandai, Toei Animation Co. and broadcaster TV Tokyo Holdings Corp. last month to start an animated program and sell related merchandise.
Establishing and expanding studio infrastructure is inauspicious. What may be lies below the headlines and journalist prose is a smart CEO with a long term vision: a gaming entertainment conglomerate. For me and other gamers, we just want to have our eyeballs glued to the adventure of interactive mobile game.
