About the "TOP 50 game developers in Poland 2022" ranking
The ranking, compiled by Forbes Poland journalists Piotr Karnaszewski and Filip Kowalik, ranks a total of 50 (including 33 listed on the Stock Exchange and 17 non-public) significant Polish gaming companies, based on the estimated value of a given enterprise. In this ranking, RedDeer.Games debuted among the leading Polish game developers in 40th place with a valuation of PLN 56 million.
- Valuing private assets was a challenge due to limited access to public information and the inability to account for future profits. However, we decided to provide estimated company valuations to reflect an accurate picture of the industry best, thanks to which we were able to pick out several "game dev gems," explains Paweł Sugalski, CFA and founder of Smart Money FIZ, which assisted "Forbes" in creating the ranking. - Sugalski adds that it is essential to present even estimated data, especially nowadays when private market valuations are better than those on the stock market and more foreign investors are entering Poland.

- Our studio’s debut in the above ranking coincided with completing the third Pre-A investment round. The roadshow, which has been running since February this year, has been a real challenge due to the political situation beyond our eastern border. The ongoing war, as well as the exaggeratedly high inflation, have been factors that hampered investment sentiment. Despite the unfavorable circumstances, we successfully completed the third financing round through our own efforts. Thanks to the trust of our investors, we gained PLN 2 million on a valuation of PLN 56 million - says Michał M. Lisiecki, CEO and co-founder of RedDeer.Games.

As previously announced, despite the challenging global situation, the ability to adapt to current conditions is fundamental in the startup world. Therefore, in an effort to overcome the deteriorating political situation in Central Europe, the Management Board, in consultation with the Boardof Directors, has taken steps to accelerate the implementation of the company's growth strategy by expanding the current operations of the studio in Poland (Szczecin, Warsaw) with an additional office in Spain (Barcelona) in order to make RedDeerGames more attractive as an employer and obtain the status of an international company.
Assuming an optimistic stabilization scenario in the region, the Warsaw office will become a Job Hub for Poles and Ukrainians. At the same time, the new Barcelona studio will be the headquarters for attracting more international talent. At the moment, our team is enriched by specialists from Korea, Turkey, Macedonia, Italy and Spain.
