Fuse Powered buys Corona Labs to offer a one-stop shop for mobile development and monetisation

Continuing the consolidation that's been ripping through the mobile analytics, advertising and development space during 2014, Canada monetisation outfit Fuse Powered has announced it's bought Corona Labs.

The terms of the deal weren't announced.

The Palo Alto-based Corona Labs offers cross-platform development tools for iOS, Android, Kindle and Windows Phone ranging from its signature Corona SDK to the simpler CoronaCards, and fully-featured Corona Enterprise.

The combined outfit - which has a reach of over 10,000 developers and 200 million monthly active users - will provide developers with everything they need to make, operate and monetise their mobile games and apps.

Combined audience

"Corona helps publishers make great games. Fuse helps publishers understand their audiences and make more money in their games. In our industry today, it's critical to have a smart monetization strategy built in with an intuitive, market-leading toolset and telemetry," said Fuse Powered's CEO Jon Walsh.

"I'm thrilled to have Walter and his incredible team combine forces with Fuse to extend our vision of providing an integrated platform that allows mobile publishers to be more successful with less hassle."

"In Fuse, we've found another company with the same vision to help mobile publishers make more successful games more easily," echoed Walter Luh, CEO of Corona Labs.

The acquisition is also important for Fuse Powered as it expands its existing presence in the key San Francisco/Silicon Valley location.
