June 1 (Reuters) - Zynga Inc has agreed to buy Turkish mobile-game maker Peak for $1.8 billion, Bloomberg News reported on Monday, citing Chief Executive Officer Frank Gibeau.
The deal, slated to be Zynga’s biggest yet, will comprise $900 million in cash and $900 million in stock, and will be completed in the third quarter, Gibeau said in an interview, Bloomberg reported.
Zynga did not immediately respond to a Reuters request for comment.
The company, once known for its Facebook-based desktop games such as “FarmVille”, has been focusing on mobile-centric games and acquisitions of smaller studios such as Gram Games, Small Giant Games and the card and board games studio of Peak Games to fuel growth.
