Tilting Point Acquisition of Budge

KO Helps Tilting Point Expand into Kids Entertainment with Acquisition of Budge Studios

Budge Studio’s app portfolio includes titles featuring leading brands like Barbie, Paw Patrol, Transformers, Hot Wheels and more

Tilting Point, a leading free-to-play games publisher and KO client, has acquired Budge Studios. The KO team, led by partner Jon Taylor, represented Tilting Point in the acquisition.

Budge Studios is one of the world’s biggest mobile developers within the children’s entertainment and education category. This acquisition marks Tilting Point’s expansion into kids entertainment, as Budge Studio’s app portfolio includes titles featuring the likes of Barbie, Paw Patrol, Transformers, Hot Wheels and more.

This comes on the heels of KO’s representation of Tilting Point in its acquisition of leading Korea-based game developer AN Games, which elevated the company’s presence in Korea.

“We love what Budge has built in the kids space,” said Kevin Segalla, founder and Co-CEO of Tilting Point. “Budge’s decade-long laser focus on the children’s audience, with over 50 successful apps, is very impressive and is a great addition to our catalog. We look forward to merging our publishing expertise with their great content to truly amplify Budge’s potential.”

KO partners Charles Ciaccio and Matt McKinney; of counsel Melissa Mellen; and attorneys John Kyed, Liz Ho, Matt Burns and Erin Locker also worked with Taylor to represent Tilting Point on these transactions.
