Zynga's latest acquisition is mobile enterprise and services outfit Five Mobile
After all, even pre-IPO, it has almost $1 billion in cash and equivalents, and had pointed to expansion of its mobile expertise as a key future strategy.
In this context, Zynga's 15th acquisition in 13 months is Toronto-based app developer Five Mobile, now known as Zynga Toronto.
Terms of the deal weren't revealed, but as well as the team, including the four co-founders - Ameet Shah, Jeff Zakrzewski, Oliver Tabay, and Troy Hubman - Zynga is acquiring some of the company's assets and IP.
Zynga says it's bought the company because of its work across a multitude of platforms and handsets for 'some of the largest media and technology companies in North America'.
"As a key component of our mobile efforts moving forward, Zynga Toronto will help position us in a hotbed of mobile development talent," it explained.
