Commenting on the move, Mikael Rönnblad, vice president of Elisa's consumer services business said, "Elisa has had an ownership in Sulake from the beginning and has supported the international expansion of the Habbo Hotel service.

"The global client base, brand, community platform and solid business competence of Sulake, combined with Elisa's expertise, provide new future opportunities."
