Catalis Group to expand into Asia with £2.96m funding package

Curve and Testronic parent company will use HSBC money to grow in 2018

Catalis Group has secured a £2.96 million "funding package" from HSBC, which will help to drive the company into the Asian market this year.

In a statement released yesterday, Catalis Group said that the money would fund growth in both of its gaming divisions: Testronic Labs and Curve Digital. In particular, it will allow the company to expand into new international markets.

"Continuing our international expansion, including into the Asian market, is an exciting next step for Catalis Group - something that wouldn't have been possible without the help and support from HSBC's funding and the bank's international reach," said CEO Dominic Wheatley.

Catalis Group will expand into Thailand this year, which HSBC described as, "an important strategic gateway into the Asian market."

Catalis Group acquired Curve Digital in in January 2016, and the UK indie publisher had a very strong 2017 thanks to hits like Bomber Crew and Human Fall Flat. You can read our recent interview with Curve's management team here.
