Welcome to the website of NACON, the integrated pure-play in video gaming.
NACON is a new company created to house the Bigben Group’s gaming assets. As an independent entity, we can raise the funds we need to address new uses and trends, offering gamers the best games and accessories in the market. For more than 20 years, NACON has been a world-renowned producer of accessories such as console controllers and gaming headsets. We have also developed our reputation by positioning ourselves in the “AA” segment of the gaming market which comprises, based on our segmentation, games selling 0.2-3.0 million copies and with budgets of €1-20 million1. This niche market, which we regard as a less competitive environment, is growing rapidly and attracting a larger community of gamers every year.
With this IPO, NACON wants to finance its rapid growth and eventually become a world leader in AA games. Achieving critical mass through further studio acquisitions and stepping up the creation of proprietary and licensed content are central to NACON’s strategy.
The funds raised will also enable us to expand internationally, both by distributing premium accessories and rolling out our games across new digital platforms.
On behalf of all our team, thank you for the interest you have shown in NACON. We would be delighted to have you among our future shareholders.
