Electronic Gaming Development Company Purchases 96.18% Stake In SNK
According to a recent transaction report, Electronic Gaming Development Company (EGDC) now holds a 96.18% stake in the gaming company SNK as of February 15th, 2022. This comes almost a year-and-a-half after EGDC purchased 33.3% of all SNK Shares.
“As for the impact of this move from EGDC, which is a subsidiary of Saudi Arabia’s Mohammed bin Salman Foundation (MiSK Foundation), will have on the company, that is yet to be seen,” writes Cale Michael of Dot Esports. “Salman is likely best known internationally for several controversies, including the murder of Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi in Istanbul, Turkey.”
