Zynga expects more acquisitions on the scale of OMGPop within the next three to five years, according to company executives. Speaking with Bloomberg, the firm said the $180 million it doled out for the Draw Something developer wasn’t a one-off, as “a few” more deals are planned for the future. “We love finding great, accomplished teams that share our mission and vision,” said CEO Mark Pincus. “If we ever see breakout opportunities that massively accelerate social gaming at Zynga, we’ll aggressively pursue those, too.” Over the last two years, the firm has spent $147.2 million on acquiring 22 companies in addition to OMGPop.
