The Group has outlined a “business-as-usual” approach, whilst GLI’s global presence will allow NMi’s Gaming services to be enhanced and grow.
GLI President and CEO James Maida commneted, “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 said, “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.”
NMi Gaming’s Dr. Richard Edwards added, “GLI’s unrivalled jurisdictional expertise, coupled with our team’s technological, problem-solving mindset promise to make this an exciting new chapter in the ongoing development of the business.”
GLI Managing Director of EMEA Martin Britton said, “The gaming compliance industry has come to know Richard Edwards and Andrew Rosewarne as outstanding leaders in their field. Adding their expertise and the NMi Gaming team to the GLI Group is an alliance that affords complementary services that clients of both companies can leverage.”
