Liberty advises the management team of Outright Games on its investment from EMK Capital

Mid-market private equity investor EMK Capital has backed the management buyout of Outright Games, partnering with the management team led by founder Terry Malham.

Outright Games is a market leading children’s and family video games publisher headquartered in the UK, with offices in Spain and the US.  The company has built an impressive portfolio of IP-based kids and family content with titles including renowned franchises such as PAW Patrol, Jumanji, Ben10 and How to Train your Dragon.

With rapid growth seen across the global gaming industry over the past decade, Outright Games has cemented its position as the leading publisher of licensed video games for kids and families, publishing titles from some of the biggest names in entertainment including Nickelodeon, Sony Pictures, NBC Universal and Cartoon Network.

Rockpool Investments invested in Outright Games in 2016 providing growth capital to an already successful and ambitious team. Since then, it has expanded its global presence with offices in Los Angeles, London and Madrid.

The management team is delighted with the outcome and we look forward to working with EMK as our new financial partner. We are very grateful to Tim and the Liberty team for all their support throughout the transaction. Their deep transaction experience and hands on support were crucial in helping all stakeholders achieve such a great result.

Terry Malham
CEO of Outright Games

Terry and the team have achieved fantastic growth with Outright Games and we look forward to seeing them continue to rapidly expand the business in this dynamic and growing market. We thoroughly enjoyed working with them and are delighted to have played our part in making the transaction happen.
