In diesem geleakten Dokument erfahren Sie einiges über die 2020 geplante Akquisition der Sega Gaming Studios durch Microsoft.
In einer E-Mail dazu schreibt Phil Spencer:
I’m writing to request Strategy Approval to approach Sega Sammy regarding a potential acquisition of their Sega gaming studios. For context, Bill and I have reviewed the business case for acquiring Sega and are both supportive. We believe that Sega has built a well-balanced portfolio of games across segments with global
geographic appeal, and will help us accelerate Xbox Game Pass both on and off-console. Please find the attached
memo and bullets below for additional detail on our strategy to prioritize our next acquisition target, a brief
overview of Sega’s gaming portfolio, and the value drivers for the potential acquisition.
As the Sega gaming studios are owned by Sega Sammy, a publicly-traded Japanese company, we have called out a few deal complexities in the memo. Sega’s gaming has represented roughly half of Sega Sammy’s revenue and operating income, or -$900M of revenue and $60-90M of operating income, in each of Sega Sammy’s last three
fiscal years. The team is coordinating closely with CELA on next steps, if we were to receive SA.
Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns, or would like us to schedule time to discuss live.
