Naspers owned Tencent buys stake in Kim Kardashian game developer Glu Mobile

Chinese internet company Tencent – of which Naspers owns 34 percent – has bought 14.6 percent of US mobile game developer Glu Mobile for R1.5 billion.

Glu Mobile reported a R25 million profit in the first quarter of 2015.

About 71 percent of Glu Mobile’s revenue originates in North America with just 14 percent coming from Asia.

This deal, arguably, makes Tencent the largest gaming company on Earth.

Glu Mobile is famous for its hit game entitled "Kim Kardashian: Hollywood”.
