DeNA restructuring leads to Ngmoco layoffs
: Mobile developer Ngmoco confirmed today that there has been a number of layoffs in the company as part of a corporate restructuring in parent company DeNA.
DeNA bought Ngmoco
back in 2010 for $400 million. While the company has not stated a specific figure for the layoffs, Inside Mobile Apps reports that
the number is "around 30."
These layoffs come as DeNA posted a drop in profits
year-over-year for its third quarter, putting it down to a "temporary setback" in virtual currency consumption.
