mybet Holding SE / Key word(s): Miscellaneous 02.09.2014 17:33 Dissemination of an Ad hoc announcement according to 15 WpHG, transmitted by DGAP - a service of EQS Group AG. The issuer is solely responsible for the content of this announcement. --------------------------------------------------------------------------- Kiel, September 2, 2014 - The Hesse Ministry of the Interior and for Sport has today announced its intention to award a licence for the conducting of sports betting in Germany to Personal Exchange International Ltd., a group company of mybet Holding SE. The licence will not be issued until September 18, 2014 at the earliest. This delay is intended to give parties whose licence applications were rejected an opportunity for legal recourse, potentially with an impact on the granting of the licence to Personal Exchange International Ltd.

It will necessitate adjustments within the company that present both opportunities and risks for our business operations. We also need to bear in mind that those parties whose applications for a licence have been turned down may appeal against the decision of the Hesse Ministry of the Interior by way of interim proceedings. That makes it uncertain whether the licences will be issued straight away in two weeks' time or only once any such proceedings have been concluded. It is also unclear whether and subject to what conditions the competitors whose applications have been rejected may continue to operate their sports betting range in Germany while court proceedings are still in progress. We will prepare thoroughly for every scenario.' 02.09.2014 The DGAP Distribution Services include Regulatory Announcements, Financial/Corporate News and Press Releases.
