Unity Technologies raises $400 million

Commentary

After raising a round of $181 million in 2016, Unity Technologies, whose software tools are at the heart of Pokémon Go and other video games, announced that it had raised $400 million in a new funding round led by Silver Lake. The deal valued the company at a whopping $2.8 billion. So why is Unity Technologies attracting so much funding? Unity is one of the fastest growing game engine developers in the world today. According to the company, more than 30% of the current 1,000 top-grossing free mobile games were built with Unity software. The company boasts other impressive metrics including having 5 billion game downloads in the third quarter of 2016. Unity has also become one of the most popular platforms for creating VR worlds for both mobile and PC devices. Unity’s dominance in the VR space is one of the reasons why investors are bullish on the company.

Softbank invests $1.4 billion in Paytm

Commentary

After suffering a $350-million loss on its investments in Indian startups Snapdeal and Ola, Softbank, Japan’s telecom and internet giant, remains undeterred. Last week, the company announced it has invested $1.4 billion in Paytm, India’s leading digital payments and commerce company. The funding round values Paytm at $9 billion. The investment was made through Paytm’s parent company One97 Communications. According to analysts, the investment will reinforce Softbank’s status as a lead investor in India’s robust ecommerce ecosystem. For Paytm, the funding will help the company expand its user base by providing consumers with digital access to a wider array of financial services.
