Although the closing purchase price of the deal amounts to $50m, additional earn-out payments of up to $50m will be made depending on whether DiWip reaches certain closing financial targets.

In a statement confirming the deal, Imperus said that the acquisition of DiWip would provide it with immediate access to the US and a number of other major markets as the social game developer is currently active in about 220 countries.

The acquisition remains subject to a number of conditions and approvals.
