Are non-exclusive licenses for mobile games worth it?

I received a proposal to purchase a non-exclusive license for a pretty popular game I made for Android (G-Switch 3). The company purchasing the license would have a "premium" version of my game on their platform (i.e. without ads and extra content unlocked without in-app purchase).

At first it seemed interesting, but then I wonder how many users I may potentially lose due to this. After reading the contract, it says that they may sublicense the game to any other platforms as they see fit.

On one hand, I don't imagine that many users making the switch to use other app platforms to get the premium version of the game. On the other, who knows what will happen in the next years; maybe alternate app stores will become more popular since they offer premium apps for free.

Any ideas on this? Thanks.
