Poor Markets May Delay Zynga IPO Until November

Written on August 30, 2011 by Avlya Jaie

Zynga, the popular social games creator, might postpone its plans for an Initial Public Offering (IPO) due to poor market conditions.

Due to some poor market condition issues, people might not see Zynga’s plans for an IPO until November of this year.

According to the sources of The New York Post, the social gaming company is facing hindrances because of several “rocky stock markets” affairs, making them unable to release its IPO next month as originally scheduled.

If you could remember, Zynga – the company behind such popular social games, including FarmVille, CityVille and Mafia Wars – confirmed last June that they wanted to go public. They even aimed to raise $1.5 billion to $2 billion in its IPO. But after encountering a debt ceiling debate in summer, Zynga became incapable of fulfilling their plans.

Zynga is just one of the many social media IPOs that is slated to be launched in the upcoming months. Groupon, another renowned social media IPO, has also faced series of delays due to SEC accounting concerns. Up to now, the social games’ maker remains silent with regards to this matter.

Written on July 26, 2011 by Avlya Jaie

Comments Off

As part of their partnership with Chinese Internet giant Tencent, Zynga will be launching a localized Chinese beta version of CityVille - the Zynga City.

Facebook is not accessible in China, thus, Zynga is not as well capable of launching such social games in the area. However, the developer announced recently that they signed a partnership with Tencent – an Internet company in China – in order to produce the beta version of the popular CityVille which will be named as “Zynga City.”

According to Zynga, this partnership is indeed vital for them, as they are aiming to enter new markets and broaden the numbers of their partner companies. The largest social games developer on Facebook first invaded the markets of China by attaining the XPD Media, another game developer, way back in May 2010. Perhaps that is the time when Zynga begins to grow and produced new social games in some Asian countries, such as Hong Kong and Taiwan.
