25. June 2024 by Valentin Pasetti

NIP Group, the parent company of the esports organization Ninjas in Pyjamas (NIP) and ESV5, has announced its intention to launch an Initial Public Offering (IPO) on the NASDAQ stock exchange. The group aims to raise $5 million through this move.

Strategic Move into the Stock Market

NIP Group, which operates in both Europe and China, has officially filed for an IPO, marking a significant step towards expanding its financial base.

According to Renaissance Capital, a research and investment firm specializing in IPOs, the actual amount raised could reach up to $50 million. An IPO allows a company to offer its shares to the public, providing an opportunity for investors to buy into the company.

Expansion and Financial Growth

NIP Group, established in January 2023, encompasses the renowned Swedish esports organization Ninjas in Pyjamas and the Chinese esports entity ESV5.

Ninjas in Pyjamas, originally known for its dominance in Counter-Strike, has a storied history in esports, holding the record for the most consecutive map wins (87). The organization has since expanded into other competitive games such as Dota 2, EA Sports FC, and Rainbow Six: Siege.

Following its merger with ESV5, NIP has extended its reach into the Chinese esports market, participating in games like VALORANT, League of Legends, and Honor of Kings. ESV5 also owns MAG Studio, an event production company, and eStar Entertainment, an esports talent agency.


Financial Performance

NIP Group has released notable financial records for 2022 and 2023, showing significant growth. The company’s total net income increased from $65.8 million in 2022 to $83.7 million in 2023, while gross profit rose from $3.7 million to $7.2 million. These figures highlight NIP Group’s expanding financial health and market presence.

Future Prospects

The success of this IPO remains uncertain, but it follows the pattern of other recent esports IPOs, such as FaZe Clan and Astralis. The initial public offering of NIP Group is still awaiting approval, but with backing from insurers like Deutsche Bank, it is expected to proceed successfully.



NIP Group’s IPO represents a bold step into the public market, aiming to leverage increased investment to fuel further growth and expansion. As the esports industry continues to flourish, this move could position Ninjas in Pyjamas as a leading player both competitively and financially.
