|buy and keep hold , one for the future|
|Lots of buying the last couple of days. Could be the fact that all 3 of their investments are making strong progress. Gfinity just signed a deal with Microsoft and Simplestream a deal with Viacom who own the likes of Paramount pictures, Nickelodeon and MTV. Chart says 1.8p short term but any good news and 3p is possible IMHO.|
|Cssh was raised earlier this year at 1.5p and directors took part so must be worth at least that.|
|Interesting, I cant buy these on line at the moment.
Topped up last week to average right down and wanted some more.|
|Viacom multi year agreement, now that's a good piece of business!!|
|28%? must be something.|

("Gfinity" or "the Company")
First major eSports partnership agreement signed with News Corp UK & Ireland Limited ("News UK") owner of The Sun
Gfinity (AIM: GFIN), a leading eSports business and News UK, part of the global media group News Corp, are pleased to announce they have signed a major sponsorship agreement for The Sun to become Gfinity's official newspaper and on-line news partner in the UK and Ireland.
The two-year commercial partnership is the first such major agreement signed by Gfinity and will contribute significantly towards the Company achieving its revenue targets this year and in 2016. The deal is exclusive to the publishing and on-line media industry in the UK and Ireland, however, it does not block Gfinity from negotiating a separate deal for the rights to broadcast its content and tournaments on television.
The partnership contract enables The Sun to become:
-- Official partner for 2015 and 2016 Gfinity Championship Series
-- Title sponsors of 2015 and 2016 Gfinity UK Championship Series
-- Lead sponsor of Gfinity's High Performance Programme, an initiative that helps develop world class eSports players in the UK (for the second year of the contract)
-- Title sponsor of Gfinity's weekly on-line tournaments, the Gfinity Community Gaming Series (for second year of the contract)
The agreement signals the growing popularity of eSports in the UK and Gfinity hopes it will lead to an increase in audience figures, create new revenue streams and provide an opportunity to uncover the next generation of eSport stars.
Furthermore, The Sun will benefit from a suite of rights including broadcast advertising, in-game branding, digital advertising, venue branding, content, and direct marketing. The sponsorship package will establish News UK and its brands, such as The Sun, as the biggest supporters of eSports in the UK.
Readers of The Sun will get priority ticket purchase rights and exclusive access to feature footage and interviews from Gfinity events. Both parties are working together on the development of an e-commerce platform, through which they intend to sell eSports related merchandise.
Neville Upton, Co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of Gfinity, said: "We are delighted to have signed this agreement with News UK, one of the largest media companies in the UK. Their faith in what Gfinity are doing is a testament to the exceptional quality of product we already have on offer. The backing of such a large organisation is not only great news for us but also a huge boost to the UK's growing eSports sector."
"This is not a simple sponsorship agreement but a strategic partnership that will enable both parties to improve, develop and grow the UK's evolving eSports sector."
Mike Darcey, CEO of News UK, said: "Through our new partnership with Gfinity, we are proud to have become the first newspaper group to break into the expanding eSports market. Producing world-class journalism is at the heart of what News UK does, but as part of our business development strategy we actively seek out opportunities to reach new audiences through different media. We now look forward to uncovering new commercial opportunities and relationships in this exciting new sector."|
