LOS ANGELES, April 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Mandalay Digital Group, Inc.

"Our acquisition of mia enables us to expand the Digital Turbine footprint into the Asia Pacific region while also allowing us to leverage key synergies between the companies including distribution channels, content, product offerings, services and personnel," stated Peter Adderton, chief executive officer of Mandalay Digital Group. "mia is a proven company with an established and profitable business model that we expect to add approximately $13 million to Mandalay Digital Group revenues over the next 12 months and enhance our cash flow profile.

The Digital Turbine technology platform allows media companies, mobile carriers and their OEM handset partners to take advantage of multiple mobile operating systems across multiple networks, while maintaining their own branding and personalized, one-to-one relationships with each end-user.
