Additionally, iR announced the $450 million acquisition of Landvault, a tech company specializing in immersive technology and digital twins for Fortune 500 companies and government organizations. This all-stock transaction solidifies iR’s foundation to lead the revolution in immersive digital environments. The proceeds from the significant investment and the integration of Landvault’s cutting-edge tools and expertise in crafting high-fidelity virtual worlds support Infinite Reality’s aim to be the leader in delivering innovative spatial computing and AI-powered capabilities that empower brands to better engage and monetize their audiences. Today’s deals, coupled with the Company’s previously announced acquisitions of The Drone Racing League ($250 million), Ethereal Engine ($75 million), Action Face ($10 million), and Stakes ($8 million), bring Infinite Reality’s total year-to-date transaction value to $800 million.

“Now, having joined forces with Landvault and secured this $350 million fundraise, we possess robust capitalization, financial flexibility, and a fortified position from which to successfully execute our global go-to-market strategy,” said John Acunto, co-founder and CEO of Infinite Reality. “Adding Landvault, with their substantial presence in the Middle East and Europe, supports our plans for market expansion and helps establish the Infinite Reality brand as a global leader in immersive tech. We look forward to integrating Landvault’s hundreds of clients into the Infinite Reality family, further enhancing our reach and capabilities.”

Following the acquisition, Landvault’s existing employees and creative teams will join the iR team, ensuring continuity and the retention of top talent. Landvault’s presence across the Middle East will also remain operational, expanding iR’s global footprint and supporting ongoing projects and client relationships. Sam Huber, Founder & CEO of Landvault, will take on the new role of Global President of Enterprise and CEO of MENA Region (Middle East and Northern Africa), further strengthening Infinite Reality’s presence and strategic initiatives in the region. As iR continues its go-public strategy in the U.S., the Company’s newly-expanded global structure also paves a path towards additional capital markets initiatives, including in Europe and the Middle East.

“Joining forces with Infinite Reality allows us to leverage their extensive resources and expertise to scale our vision to build the future of the internet even further,” said Sam Huber, Founder and CEO of Landvault. “Together, we will continue to push the boundaries of what is possible today, creating unparalleled experiences for business and consumers worldwide.”

The acquisition also includes Landvault’s innovative tools, such as the ability to offer local and custom hosting solutions to its clients, empowering business owners to capture and manage unique first party data and giving them direct control. Additionally, Landvault provides a comprehensive monetization SDK including in-game advertising and ecommerce modules to drive revenue from their immersive experiences. These capabilities have been pivotal in establishing Landvault as a category-defining company in the space, enabling clients to build, deploy, and monetize high-fidelity digital experiences efficiently.

“With this $350 million fundraise and Landvault’s impressive project pipeline, we are more bullish than ever about the future of our business,” said Amish Shah, Co-Founder and Chief Business Officer of Infinite Reality. “The funding gives iR further ammunition to continue to make bold investments and pursue our ongoing strategy.”</strong
