The Directors are pleased to provide the following trading updates:
Ganapati Plc’s wholly-owned subsidiary, Ganapati (Malta) Limited, has been awarded a Class 4 licence by the Malta Gaming Authority. This allows Ganapati (Malta) Limited to offer the Group’s Japanese-themed online casino games to Malta-licenced operators. These would include existing titles such as CrypBattle and She Ninja Suzu.

The office will supplement the existing tech office in Tallinn, Estonia which has also recently undergone an expansion doubling its office size. Ganalogics OU was a sponsor at the recent GameDev Days in Tallinn where it was able to attract more talent.
Mistuya Fujimoto, CEO of Ganapati Malta and COO of Ganapati Plc holding company commented, “We are delighted and excited to welcome our new teams in Europe as part of our global network. This move to Bucharest and expansion of the Tallinn studio were part of our immediate plan to strengthen our own branded game productions in Europe which would enable us to provide a wider range of content to our customers.”
Richard Hogg, Director of Ganapati Malta and recently appointed CEO of Ganalogics OU added, “We are delighted to be in Bucharest, having identified it as a “tech hub” of the future. The talent we have been able to attract thus far will enable us to create even more great games for Ganapati Malta.
