Games Global announced that it has launched its Initial Public Offering (IPO) with the availability of 14,5 million ordinary shares.

The price for the IPO will be set between 16.00 dollars (PS12.74/EUR14.89), and 18.00 dollars per share. Games Global applied to list its shares at the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol GGL.

Games Global sold six million shares of ordinary stock and existing shareholders sold 8.5 millions shares. Games Global won’t receive any proceeds from the shares that are sold by current shareholders.

The underwriters have the option of purchasing up to 2,175,000 additional ordinary shares. The price will be the same as for the IPO minus any underwriting discounts or commissions.

JP Morgan Jefferies, and Macquarie Capital will act as the joint book-running manager for this IPO. Barclays, BTIG and other book-running managers will also be involved.

The launch was confirmed just a few weeks after Games Global filed for an IPO at the NYSE.

Games Global described itself in a Securities and Exchange Commission filing as a “foreign issuer” and an “emerging company”. According to SEC regulations, Games Global must comply with certain reporting requirements both for its IPO and any future filings.

Games Global says that it also has “broad discretion over” how it uses the net proceeds of the IPO. It plans to put any leftover net proceeds in interest-bearing account.
