Games for Mobile Phones (LDC)
Seeing an opportunity in the UK telecomms industry, 3 partners secured options on Korean mobile games. Needing funding to secure licences, they came to CMR in London.
Several CMR Angels saw the potential, and one invested £150k for 13% equity with options on more. The games were then taken up by G2.5, G3 operators hungry for content.
To expand the portfolio, the original investor and a 2nd CMR Angel put in a further £110k, and a CMR client raised a further £230k by PPM. LDC was subsequently acquired by a larger (ring-tones) player.
