Trading Statement & Notice of Results

London & Dublin | September 18, 2018: GAN plc ("GAN" or the "Company"), an award-winning developer and supplier of enterprise-level B2B Internet gambling software and services in the United States and Europe, today provides an update on trading for the half-year ended June 30, 2018.

GAN performed in line with market expectations during the first half of 2018.

The outlook for the second half year period and full calendar year 2018 is contingent on (a) the market size, share and growth rate of Internet sports gambling in New Jersey; (b) the timing with which Pennsylvania's regulator the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board ("PGCB") permits the launch of Internet real money gambling for residents of the State of Pennsylvania; and (c) the speed with which efficient marketing of the Overseas Internet Casino is conducted in European regulated markets by GAN.

By way of outlook on 2019, the recent launch of Internet sports betting, the Company's current sales pipeline and existing contracted clients are projected to propel GAN to record revenues, revenue growth, and EBITDA.

GAN is due to release its half year result for the period ended 30 June 2018 on September 28, 2018.

PASPA / Regulatory Developments

With respect to online sports betting in the US, GAN welcomed the repeal of the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act 1992 ("PASPA") by the US Supreme Court on May 14, 2018. GAN has subsequently integrated a leading B2B sports betting system into GAN's Platform and delivered Internet sports betting in New Jersey to its client PaddyPower Betfair plc ("PPB"), branded 'FanDuel', on September 1, 2018.

The reported success of the Internet sports betting market in the first operating month of August 2018 may result in an increase in the speed of regulation of intra-State Internet gambling going forwards. It is believed that additional US States are now considering the regulation of Internet gambling.

New Jersey Internet Gambling

Internet sports betting's growth since launch on September 1, 2018 has exceeded initial expectations in the first 17 day operating period. Continued growth is contingent on the speed with which our client PPB phases in marketing investment and the competitive dynamics within this emerging market.

GAN's second client in New Jersey, Ocean Resort Casino ("ORC") opened the land-based casino in Atlantic City on June 28, 2018 and the Internet casino delivered to ORC by GAN commenced operations of its desktop-only website on July 10, 2018. The secondary launch of mobile apps to enable end users to engage with ORC's Internet casino via their personal mobile devices has been delayed by the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement ("DGE") technical certification division due to the demand for certification of new Internet sports betting systems.

Mobile apps are required to be downloaded by end users in order for their physical location to be accurately determined in compliance with New Jersey Internet gambling regulations. Mobile casino gaming represents the substantial majority of Internet casino gaming revenues in New Jersey. The mobile apps were approved by the DGE on September 4, 2018.

Pennsylvania Internet Gambling

Pennsylvania's real money Internet gambling market is now expected to commence in early 2019. This delay, due to a slower-than-expected issuance of regulations by the PGCB, impacts GAN's ability to recognise revenues derived from professional services fees already generated by GAN year-to-date and similar incremental professional service fees expected to be generated in H2 2018 as preparations to launch our client Parx Casino's Internet gambling operations continue.

Such fee-based revenues from the professional services rendered by GAN to its clients are recognised following the client's commercial launch of Internet gambling. Accordingly, revenue from professional services delivered to Parx Casino in 2018 will now be recognized in H1 2019.

This regulatory delay will also negatively impact GAN's H2 2018 Net Revenue from the revenue-sharing aspect of GAN's commercial relationship with Parx Casino, the market-leading casino property in Pennsylvania.

GAN has been a registered gaming services provider in Pennsylvania since 2014 and successfully submitted its Pennsylvanian Internet gambling software vendor license application to the PGCB on September 17, 2018.

Italian Internet Gaming

GAN notes the recent legislative ban on advertising of gambling in Italy which comes into effect in January 2019. GAN's clients in Italy are predominantly land-based operators of retail betting shops as well as Internet gambling. Following consultation with selected Italian clients and specialised gaming research firm Eilers & Krejcik Gaming LLC1, Italian Internet gambling operators supported by significant retail operations are not expected to be materially impacted by the ban on advertising and may benefit from reduced competition from Internet-only operators.

As previously announced2, the Company will launch its 9th Italian client GOLDBET in Q4 2018 which operates more than 1,000 land-based betting shops in Italy.

Overseas Internet Casino

Operational marketing of the Overseas Internet Casino in Europe commenced on September 12 2018. This followed an extended period in Q3 restructuring certain operational and financial arrangements to ensure an efficient deployment of the previously-reported $10m in user acquisition marketing provided to GAN by our client, the Chickasaw Nation, to develop their Internet gambling business in European regulated markets.

Simulated Gaming™

The acquisition of new US casinos as clients for GAN's US-facing Simulated Gaming business has been impacted by the increased allocation of internal technical engineering resources towards real money Internet gambling in H1 2018, which will continue to delay incremental client acquisition until the previously announced expansion of the Company's software engineering team in Sofia, Bulgaria has completed in H1 2019.

GAN's client of Simulated Gaming, the Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians, was announced on April 30, 20183 and is now anticipated to launch Simulated Gaming in Q4 2018.

As on June 30, 2018 GAN operated Simulated Gaming for 13 major US casinos coast-to-coast together representing in excess of $8bn in annual land-based gaming revenues as well as for a consortium of land-based gaming venues in Queensland, Australia identified as 'Club8Casino'.

Notice of Results

The Company will release its results for the half year period ended June 30, 2018 on September 28, 2018.

FAQ's about GAN's Internet Gambling 'Platform' & US Patent

· For investors and Industry analysts: The core of a "Platform" from both a technical and regulatory standpoint is the Player Account Management System i.e. where highly sensitive customer and player activity data is stored and processed. Other elements of Platform can include a sportsbook transaction engine, gaming content integrations, payment services, marketing services, trading services and other ancillary activities. However, the core functionality to describe B2B systems and services as a 'Platform' is the Player Account Management System. This is also the layer of B2B activity which tends to require regulatory approval as a 'Platform' since it is the focal point of data and player security. Therefore, without the Player Account Management System, a service provider might be offering very valuable B2B functionality but not in the strictest sense a 'Platform' (source: Regulus Partners, an international gambling advisory group).

· All US casinos operate an on-property rewards program (also called 'loyalty programs') where visitors to the land-based casino can enrol in a loyalty program, collect a rewards card and accumulate reward points from real money gambling on-property. Typically, US casinos have more than half of their active on-property patrons enrolled in these reward programs.

· GAN's US-patented technology principally permits US casino operators' carded patrons to link their reward card to their online gambling account in order to identify themselves as a patron of the land-based casino and a member of their retail rewards program.

· The Patent was awarded to GAN plc in September 2014 by the US Patent & Trademark Office ("USPTO") with the Patent reissued under the same Patent number by the USPTO on March 17, 2017 following an unsuccessful ex parte challenge brought by an anonymous US Industry actor.

Notes:

1 "The Italian gambling advertising ban is unlikely to impact operators equally with online only firms expected to be more significantly impacted by the blanket ban on all gambling advertising in the country. As can be seen from the market share in CY17 five of the seven largest operators in the iGaming market have a substantial land-based presence and will look to use that brand recognition along with cross- sell from land-based to online to continue to grow their share post-ban."

THIS ANNOUNCEMENT CONTAINS INSIDE INFORMATION FOR THE PURPOSES OF ARTICLE 7 OF THE MARKET ABUSE REGULATION (EU) 596/2014

GAN Announces Appointment of Leading Intellectual Property Litigation Firm to Drive Licensing & Enforcement of US Patent

London & Dublin | September 14, 2018: GAN plc ("GAN" or the "Company"), an award-winning developer and supplier of enterprise-level B2B Internet gambling software and services in the United States, today announces the Company has awarded a mandate to specialist intellectual property litigation firm Irwin IP LLP ("Irwin IP") in Chicago, IL to implement a US patent licensing and enforcement program principally targeting operators in the regulated intra-State Internet gambling markets of New Jersey, Nevada, Delaware and Pennsylvania which are currently infringing upon the Company's US-patented intellectual property rights.

The commencement of GAN's Patent licensing program was announced on May 30, 2017 following an unsuccessful 'ex parte' (anonymous) legal challenge to GAN's US patent number 8,821,296, reinforcing the value of GAN's US-patented technology for linking land-based casino reward cards to online gambling accounts.

Following the completion of the £7.5M Equity Placing in June 2018 and the appointment of Irwin IP LLP, the Company will now proceed to assert its rights over US-patented intellectual property and seek commercial settlements for prior and continuing infringements by regulated Internet gambling operators and/or relevant technology vendors, who have been substantially and progressively placed on notice of the Company's US intellectual property rights.

A further update will be provided at GAN's H1 2018 interim results on September 28, 2018.

Highlights

· GAN's US Patent was awarded in September 2014 and this US-patented technology has been licensed by GAN to many of the largest US casino operators including Station Casinos, Chickasaw Nation, MGM Resorts, Ocean Resort Casino and Parx Casino for both Simulated Gaming (social casino gaming) and regulated real money Internet gambling in both New Jersey and Pennsylvania

· Irwin IP is an experienced intellectual property litigation firm in Chicago, Illinois with a substantial track record in the US casino gaming Industry securing injunctions and/or commercial licensing agreements with major US casino equipment manufacturers and/or US casino operators

· Irwin IP's accomplishments include representing a mid-sized software company in a three-week jury trial culminating in a $16 million jury verdict; helping a small, disruptive start-up defeat patent infringement and false advertising claims asserted by a large, multi-national company; and securing a permanent injunction and $7.3 million jury award in an offensive gaming patent infringement matter protecting a $100-million-dollar-a-year product line

Patent licensing and/or settlement awards represent a potentially high-margin incremental income stream for GAN.

Update on Legalization of US Internet Sports Betting

Re-confirms H2 launch of Internet sports betting in the US

London & Dublin | June 6, 2018: GAN plc ("GAN" or the "Company"), an award-winning developer and supplier of enterprise-level B2B Internet gaming software, services and online gaming content in the United States, today provides an update following the decision of the Supreme Court of the United States ("SCOTUS") to overturn the previous Federal US prohibition on sports betting enshrined with the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act 1992 ("PASPA").

Management CommentaryDermot Smurfit, CEO of GAN commented:“Five successive quarters of growth more recently driven by Simulated Gaming in the Company’s key market of the US. Overall ‘GAN-enabled revenue’ in which GAN participates increased +5% in Q3 2017 over Q2 2017. Moving ‘bricks & mortar’ US casinos online with GAN’s Simulated Gaming continued to deliver growth quarter on quarter despite the full impact of Summer seasonality which generally reduces players’ levels of online engagement and propensity to spend money.”

GAN Positioned for Strong Revenue Growth Commencing in 2018 as Bill to Legalize Real Money Internet Gaming in Pennsylvania Becomes Law

London & Dublin | October 31, 2017: GAN plc ("GAN" or the "Company") a leading B2B supplier of Internet gaming enterprise software-as-a-service solutions to the US land-based casino Industry, today announces that HB 271, a bill that includes provisions for the legalisation of full real money Internet gaming in Pennsylvania, was signed into law by the Governor of Pennsylvania yesterday. HB 271 was passed by the Senate in Pennsylvania on October 25, by the House of Representatives on October 26 and signed into law by Governor Tom Wolf on October 30.

Pennsylvania is the second largest casino market in the United States and becomes the fourth State where Americans will be permitted to undertake Internet gaming. The Pennsylvanian regulated Internet gaming market is now expected to commence in H1 2018 and GAN is positioned for strong revenue growth from that market commencing in 2018.

Management Commentary

Dermot Smurfit, CEO of GAN commented:

"The signing into law yesterday of House Bill 271 provides full certainty that real money Internet gaming is coming to Pennsylvania in 2018. Governor Tom Wolf elected to sign this major gaming expansion bill in order to start the clock ticking as soon as possible. GAN is positioned for strong revenue growth in 2018 both prior to and following the commencement of the new Pennsylvanian Internet gaming market in H1 2018 as the first land-based casino operators 'ready to go' are likely permitted to move online first. GAN is very well prepared for Pennsylvania to regulate. We have a full Internet gaming system already deployed inside a leading Pennsylvania casino, hold a full gaming license in New Jersey as well as being a registered authorized gaming services provider in Pennsylvania since 2014."

FAQ's about US regulation & GAN's real money online Regulated Gaming

GAN Chief Financial Officer Transition

Desmond Glass to Depart in Q4 2017 as CFO role relocates to Las Vegas

GAN plc (“GAN” or the “Company”) a leading B2B supplier of Internet gaming enterprise software-as-a-service solutions to the US land-based casino Industry, today announces the Group’s Chief Financial Officer (“CFO”) role will relocate from London to GAN’s US operations in Las Vegas commencing in Q4 2017 following interim H1 2017 results in September.

The CFO role transition better reflects GAN’s continued growth in the North American market. This follows the relocation of the CEO’s role to Las Vegas in Summer 2015; the relocation of the Chief Information Officer role to Las Vegas in Summer 2016; and the appointment of Las Vegas-resident Mr Seamus McGill as Chairman in April 2017, all of which have proven instrumental in accelerating growth of Simulated Gaming for GAN’s thirteen US casino clients coast-to-coast as well as GAN’s New Jersey real money Internet casino gaming services delivered to PaddyPower Betfair plc.

GAN’s CFO and Company Secretary Desmond Glass has decided not to transition to the United States at this time in order to pursue UK-based opportunities.

Management Commentary

Dermot Smurfit, CEO of GAN commented:

“After a successful multi-year period with GAN, and having been instrumental in preparing the Group for its successful public listing in November 2013, Desmond leaves behind a strong legacy best represented by GAN’s growing business in the US and selected regulated Internet gaming markets in Europe. We wish Desmond every success in the future. The relocation of the CFO role from London to Las Vegas aligns with GAN’s medium term strategy to seek admission to the US capital markets. Desmond will remain CFO in London until October and I expect that the new US-based CFO will be announced with our interim results on or before September 30, 2017. I look forward to working with Desmond closely in the coming months to prepare for the transition of his responsibilities.”

GAN Releases Quarterly Key Performance Indicators for its 2017 Second Quarter

Continued Strong Growth from its core US market and Simulated Gaming

London & Dublin | July 5, 2017: GAN plc ("GAN" or the "Company"), an award-winning developer and supplier of enterprise-level B2B Internet gaming software, services and online gaming content in the United States, today announced the release of quarterly key performance indicators for the second quarter of 2017. This allows the US and global institutional investment community to properly track progress of GAN's diverse business on a quarterly basis.

Over the past twelve months, GAN has begun to increase its institutional outreach to the United States, where the Company conducts the predominate portion of its business activities. The expanded financial information flow supports the increasing number of suitably-qualified US institutional investors who engaged with GAN's equity story in late 2016 and 2017 to date. This third Quarterly publication discloses the Active Player-Days and Average Revenue Per Active Player-Day (ARPDAU), in which GAN participates worldwide in regulated real money Internet gaming markets and Simulated Gaming™. Q3 2017 Key Performance Indicators will be released in October 2017.

Second Quarter 2017 Highlights

  • Fourth successive Quarter of growth in Active Player-Days.
  • +16.7% Quarter-on-Quarter growth in Active Player-Days in Q2 2017 over Q1 2017 to 2,600,842 Active Player-Days.

Management Commentary

Dermot Smurfit, CEO of GAN commented:

"GAN has now reported four successive quarters of growth more recently driven by Simulated Gaming in the Company's key market of the US. Overall 'GAN-enabled revenue' in which GAN participates increased +6% in Q2 2017 over Q1 2017. Moving 'bricks & mortar' US casinos online with GAN's Simulated Gaming continued to deliver growth quarter on quarter despite the onset of Summer seasonality which generally reduces players' levels of online engagement and propensity to spend money. GAN, like all Internet gaming companies with players principally located in the Northern Hemisphere, experiences Summer-related seasonality in both calendar Q2 and Q3 each year."
