TGS Esports has completed the acquisition of Pepper Esports, a next-generation competitive esports platform.
As part of the acquisition, the Pepper executive team, Guy Halford-Thompson, Jackson Warren, and Ben Hoffman, who have a decade of combined experience in growing early-stage companies in the public markets, joined the TGS executive team, and Guy Halford-Thompson will join the TGS board of directors.
“The Pepper platform is a core component of our 2021 growth strategy. Organizers and communities previously had to utilize multiple third-party applications to put on a successful event, including TGS, and we are esports event experts. With the addition of Pepper, the entire experience can be brought under one roof. This provides tremendous value for our team and any of our partners,” Spiro Khouri, CEO of TGS, said.
“Now the acquisition is complete we can accelerate our development of the Pepper platform to address the increased interest we are seeing from clients. As a single, unified team, we are able to offer a full suite of services from integrated streaming to full event management sets us apart from other platforms,” Guy Halford-Thompson, CEO of Pepper Esports, said.
