Spanish mobile content firm Zed to buy Player X

Plans to expand business-to-operator services to cost £10 million

Spanish mobile content firm Zed to buy Player X
Player X was launched five years ago as a mobile content aggregator, and has established itself as a diverse supplier of mobile gaming and content to a variety of operators and portals - working closely with companies such as O2 and Pocket Gamer.

The London-based firm is expected to officially announced its acquisition by Spanish mobile content provider Zed for an expected £10 million. The deal comes as Zed reportedly aims to break into business-to-operator services, which Player X’s strong relationships with operators will facilitate.

Alongside the business expansion, Player X also sports a catalogue of original gaming IPs and has begun working with high profile partners such as NBA, Universal and Lionsgate - all of which will be of significant interest to Zed as it attempts to cement its position in the mobile market.

Yes. Spanner's his real name. And, yes, he's heard that joke before.
