Since late last year rumors circulated within the digital realm that Microsoft is planning another acquisition. Microsoft is reportedly eying one of the biggest polish studios but which one? Among others, The Farm 51 is rumored to be the studio Microsoft is interesting in and to make matters interesting, it looks like The Farm 51 is preparing for a new investor to join the party.
The Farm 51 is hosting its shareholder’s meeting on June 29 and plans to introduce a capital increase for a new “strategic investor.” The management board will be authorized to increase the company’s share capital, in total by no more than PLN 470,510.85. This authorization granted to the company’s management to increase the share capital will enable the board to immediately issue new company shares after establishing its terms with a potential investor.
A strategic investor usually invests to acquire a company at a later date. They invest to get an “under the hood” look at the company’s progress. If things go well the investor doesn’t take long to acquire the company, in this case, The Farm 51. What this means is, at the very least, The Farm 51 is one of the companies Microsoft is possibly close to acquiring. An “investor” coming in right when reports of Microsoft’s interest in Polish studios are flying doesn’t seem like a coincidence.
