SiGMA Group acquires majority stake in iGaming Academy

SiGMA Group has announced it has acquired a majority stake in iGaming Academy,
which offers vocational and compliance training in over 25 jurisdictions, to more than 60,000 gaming professionals yearly, for an undisclosed figure.

This acquisition is set to greatly complement their current portfolio by embedding
various forms of industry education throughout SiGMA’s global event schedule and
online network.

In the words of Eman Pulis, SiGMA Group founder, “The acquisition comes at a perfect
time for us. We’ve been working closely with iGaming Academy for many years now. I
love what Jaime and the Conexus Group have built and look forward to supporting this
growth with new initiatives and a wider offering of educational programs globally. The industry is crying out for more talent and regulatory insight, with new markets
continuing to regulate. As a result, we want to be very active in this business.”
Robert Dowling from Conexus Group commented that, “Conexus will remain actively
involved in the iGaming Academy and our clients will continue to receive the
outstanding training they expect from this brand,” said Rob Dowling, CEO of The
Conexus Group. “We are confident that this strategic acquisition by SiGMA will allow
the iGaming Academy to expand and improve its services offering to better serve the
evolving training needs of the iGaming industry.”

Jaime Debono went on to elaborate, “This acquisition marks a major milestone for
iGaming Academy – our mission has also been to educate the industry – both on key
regulatory compliance topics as well as vocational training for existing and new
markets. With the support of SiGMA Group, we will be able to accelerate this strategy
through their global event calendar, enrich both training and event content and reach a much wider audience than ever before”

“The acquisition of IGA is another important milestone for SiGMA’s vision. IGA’s
extensive training library rounds up our offer of services for the igaming industry by allowing us to be at the forefront of educational and regulatory tools for the market.
We have strong confidence in Jaime and his team and are thrilled about the next
chapters,” added Vinicius Moraes de Carvalho, Investment Partner at Ikigai Ventures.

iGaming Academy will continue to work in their current organisational structure with
Jaime Debono remaining as company CEO and continuing to work alongside his team.
The deal will continue to see the management at iGaming Academy at the helm, with
SiGMA’s corporate governance and marketing arm supporting the business to go from
strength to strength.

Following the acquisition, the iGaming Academy is setting up an office in Cyprus to
build its online offering and content development. In addition, its revenue streams will also be bolstered through new affiliate partner deals. More courses will also be made available in multiple languages, thus meeting the global demand for training.
