Motopia acquires AFL app developer

Motopia (ASX:MOT) has announced the acquisition of Pro Fantasy Sports, a mobile app developer with exclusive agreements with several professional AFL players

Mobile marketing and content company, Motopia (ASX:MOT), has arranged to acquire a sports mobile apps developer in an all-stock deal worth $1 million.

Motopia has agreed to pay two million Motopia shares at $0.50 per share for the purchase of Pro Fantasy Sports Pty Ltd.

As well as the shares, Motopia and Pro Fantasy Sports shareholders will share the proceeds of sales, sponsorship and advertising from apps developed by the company, with Motopia to receive the lion's share of 60 per cent.

Pro Fantasy Sports currently has the exclusive mobile rights with four AFL players, Carlton's Chris Judd, Geelong's Jimmy Bartel, Hawthorn's Luke Hodge and Collingwood's Luke Ball. Judd and former players Shane Crawford and Steve Greene are among Pro Fantasy Sports' current owners.

The players plan to participate in future app development, including a fantasy AFL competition app.

Motopia chief executive, Matthew Gerard, said he viewed the acquisition as an “opportunity for Motopia to break into the sports sector in Australia.”

MOT shares declined 2.41 per cent during Thursday's trading to $0.083.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
