Mobile analytics firm Kontagent has secured $4.8 million in financing, according to an SEC form filed today. 

Kontagent provides analytics for game developers, so they can gather data on player behavior and use it to tweak games and apps and produce better results.

Kontagent merged with mobile monetization firm PlayHaven last month in an effort to become a “one-stop shop” for game developers. The merger was in response to the increasingly crowded and fragmented mobile market — when it comes to both analytics and monetization. The consolidation of the two companies means they can offer customers a more complete, integrated set of tools.

The combined company will reach 400 million monthly users across 22,000 apps and 1 billion devices.

Hany Nada of GGV Capital and Eric Kim of Maverick Capital are listed as investors on the filing. GGV Capital invested in PlayHaven’s November 2012 round of funding. Maverick Capital invested in Kontagent’s November 2011 round of funding.

PlayHaven’s CEO Andy Yang is the CEO of the combined company and Kontagent’s CEO Josh Williams will serve as CTO and chairman of the board. The two companies plan to remain separate, and merge over time.

This brings Kontagent’s total capital raised to $17 million. Together, PlayHaven and Kontagent have raised $26 million.
