By Robert Simmons
ing testing and assessment provider GLI Group has today announced the acquisition of fellow testing and compliance provider NMi Metrology & Gaming Limited for an undisclosed fee.
Under the terms of the deal, NMi Gaming, which has offices in the UK, the Netherlands, Italy , Spain and Canada will continue to operate under NMi Gaming branding for the immediate future, with customers assured that it will be “business as usual” for the operator.
The company will receive access to a more global audience through access to GLI’s 475 accredited jurisdictions, operating in locations such as Australia, South Africa, Argentina and China.
NMi Gaming was founded after the privatisation of the Dutch Legal Metrology Service in 1989, and its gaming division has substantially grown in size since commencing international expansion in 2010. In recent years, NMi Gaming has become a major force in the areas of iGaming, land-based certification and auditing in key European markets.
In a statement confirming the deal on the GLI website, President and CEO James Maida said: “Over the last two years, the GLI Group has completed multiple strategic acquisitions, such as Bulletproof, Kobetron Inc. and Gaming Informatics LLC., which further enhance our business offerings and increase the level of customer service that the GLI Group provides to our gaming clients globally.
Now, with the acquisition of NMi Gaming, we have created synergies that are beneficial to both NMi and GLI clients and provides additional bandwidth for even greater customer service.”
NMi Gaming’s Andrew Rosewarne added: “This is an excellent opportunity for our customers, as this allows us to leverage GLI’s worldwide coverage while retaining the dynamism of our independent operations.”
