Asmodee Group has entered into exclusive discussions to acquire Galápagos Jogos, one of the main distributors in Brazil.
Established in 2009, Galápagos is currently one of the leading Brazilian board game companies. Since 2013 – after starting dealing of its first big international board games – Galápagos’s success follows the board game and puzzle market’s growth worldwide, one of the most dynamic in the entertainment industry.
“Our purpose of getting people together through a fantastic entertainment experience will be strengthened as we become part of Asmodee. The passion for telling incredible stories is mutual. We are very happy and proud to be joining such a great and experienced team, and willing to continue writing history in Brazil,” said Yuri Fang, Galápagos Jogos’s CEO.
With the acquisition of long-time partner Galápagos Jogos, Asmodee opens a direct presence in South America, strengthening its international presence alongside its offices in 14 countries across Europe, North America and China. The Group also relies on 13 publishing studios spread around the world.
“After more than five years of successful distribution partnership we are delighted to have Galápagos Jogos joining the Asmodee family. We fully trust the Galápagos Jogos team to increase our catalogue presence on the market and to build our Brazilian platform,” said Stéphane Carville, CEO of Asmodee Group.
