‘Candy Crush Saga’ Maker King.com Said to Enlist Bankers for IPO

King.com, maker of the “Candy Crush Saga” games, has hired JPMorgan Chase & Co., Credit Suisse Group AG and Bank of America Corp. to prepare for an initial public offering, two people familiar with the matter said.

The software developer, whose official name is Midasplayer.com Ltd., hasn’t decided on the size or timing of a share sale, said the people, who asked not to be identified because the plans are private. The Wall Street Journal reported on June 18 that the banks had been hired.
