Gaming - Capital Markets

Over the next several years, the gaming industry is expected to undergo significant growth, particularly in the online and social gaming segments.

However, keeping up with the industry’s rapid pace of change requires financing. Legacy companies will need funding to develop more digital offerings, while new entrants may need to raise money from investors to help them scale up. Having a proper strategy is crucial for long-term success.

At Osler, our team of gaming and capital markets experts can help you find the right financing partners to work with. We’ve helped companies in the sector raise money from venture capital and private equity investors, as well as advised businesses on initial public offerings. We can also help operations issue debt and seek other kinds of financing arrangements. We’ve worked with leading financial institutions, gaming operators and provincial gaming authorities to help companies in this market.

It’s important to work with a team that understands the sector’s challenges and has the depth of legal expertise needed to help you secure financing for your growth plans.
