Softbank Considers Selling Stake in Supercell at More than $5 Billion
SoftBank bought a majority of Supercell's stake in 2013 for $1.5 billion and then it increased its stake to 73 percent in May last year. The rest of the company is owned by Supercell’s management and employees.
Though Clash of Clans is very popular in many countries, it found some difficulties entering into Softbank's home country - Japan. Buddy Marini, the head of Supercell’s Japan operations, has called the country "the toughest market in the world."
