Angry Birds the massively successful cell phone game will likely move their world headquarters to Dublin from Finland the company Chief Executive has stated.
The game has been downloaded by over a billion people last year and the Rovio group is anxious to capitalize on Ireland’s low tax rate, 12.5 percent compared to Finland’s 24 percent says CEO Mikael Hed.
He told the Irish Times that Rovio employs 400 people in Finland and that Ireland could also end up manufacturing the game and other new games they have created.
“The Irish authorities have been very active and we have been promoting that. We are considering it. It is something that we need to look at. For now we have stayed in Finland. But it is on top of our minds.”
