HAARLEM, The Netherlands (5 July, 2017) – The GLI Group has acquired NMi Metrology & Gaming Ltd. and related gaming assets (“NMi Gaming”) from NMi Certin, B.V. and related parties.
The acquisition benefits NMi Gaming’s clients by providing them with instant global reach through GLI’s accredited 475 jurisdictions. Additionally, the transaction benefits GLI’s clients by allowing the firm to provide even greater levels of service and attention.
NMi Gaming has offices in the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Italy, Spain and Canada and will continue to operate under the NMi Gaming brand name for the foreseeable future. Customers can expect a “business-as-usual” approach while also being able to leverage GLI’s global presence to grow and enhance NMi Gaming’s services.
GLI President and CEO James Maida said, “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.”
NMi Gaming was founded after the privatization of the Dutch Legal Metrology Service in 1989, and its gaming division has substantially grown in size and prominence since it commenced an international expansion in 2010. In recent years, NMi Gaming has become a major force in the areas of iGaming, land-based certification and auditing while retaining its strong presence in key European markets.
