Global Daily Fantasy Sports set to rebrand as Playgon

23 July 2020

Software supplier Global Daily Fantasy Sports has announced plans to change its name to Playgon Games Inc., following its acquisition of Playgon Interactive last month.

The proposed rebrand is subject to a number of regulatory approvals, including authorisation from the TSX Venture Exchange stock exchange in Canada.

However, as per rules set out under the Business Corporations Act in British Columbia, shareholder approval is not required to proceed with the name change.

The announcement comes after Global last month finalised its acquisition of supplier Playgon Interactive.

First announced in December last year, Global said the deal would see it expand its footprint out of the daily fantasy sports sector and into the live casino market.
