‘Candy Crush’ Maker King Said to File for Public Offering

King.com, maker of the popular “Candy Crush Saga” puzzle game on Facebook Inc. and Apple Inc. products, made a confidential filing for an initial public offering, a person familiar with the matter said.

The company, part of Midasplayer.com Ltd., according to its website, hasn’t set a date for the sale, said the person, who asked not to be named because the plans are private. Alex Dale, a spokesman for London-based King, didn’t respond to a request for comment. The company was founded in 2003.
