Games tech giant Keywords has announced its intention to purchase US quality assurance company VMC.
The deal, which is said to close on October 30th, will set Keywords back $66.4m, and will be funded through a placement of £75m-worth of shares.
This news comes just one week after Keywords acquiring d3t for £3m.
“VMC is an organisation we’ve admired for several years for its reputation, scale and high-quality service as well as its attractive embedded technical services and crowd-based testing services,” Keywords CEO Andrew Day said.
“We look forward to working with the team at VMC to support their growth as part of a group providing similar services, as we realise the benefits of combining our complementary services and locations. We strongly believe that this will result in a compelling offering for our broadened client base, not only in North America but also internationally.”
