Candy Crush creator King unlocks new achievement: IPO filing

After spending the summer at the top of both the iTunes and Android app stores, UK games company King may be riding that success to cash in on a timely IPO. Telegraph reports that the company has secretly filed its pre-IPO S-1 with the SEC, although very few details about the paperwork (as well as King’s current financial standing) are known. It could be the right time for the decade-old company to go public, but it’s hard to not consider the cautionary tale of Zynga’s own IPO efforts. Will history repeat itself?
