Tiga has dismissed reports of a merger talk with UKIE, a spokesman has told Develop. Tiga remains committed to being a separate entity despite being “flattered by [UKIE’s] continued admiration” of the trade body. Last weekduring UKIE AGM, chairman Andy Payne said he was “extending a hand” to Tiga CEO Richard Wilson and the board in order to see how the two trade bodies could collaborate. Payne said a merger would be preferable because as it stands now, each only represents “half our voice, half our power – we should be one because we are a new industry.” Thanks, MCV.
