“The funds will be utilized in two areas crucial to our expansion plans. One is, marketing / user acquisition, as we plan to double our active users from 25 mn to 50 mn this year. The second is to increase our developers/talent pool as we go about introducing new games and providing even better gaming experience. Both these investments will give a major boost to the sustainability of our business model,” said Singh about rationale behind the company’s potential fund raise.
