Tipp24 SE: Executive Board expanded to three members

Marcus Geiss and Petra von Strombeck return to Executive Board 

(Hamburg, 6 April 2011) The Supervisory Board of Tipp24 SE has resolved to
expand the Executive Board as of 1 July 2011 with the addition of two extra
members. The former Executive Board members Marcus Geiss (40) and Petra von
Strombeck (41) will return to Tipp24 SE in their old positions. They left
the Executive Board at the end of March 2009 due to regulatory
restrictions.

Geiss, currently CEO of Giochi24, will be responsible in future for the
Corporate Development and New Markets divisions. Von Strombeck, currently
working as a business consultant, will take over the Sales, Marketing and
Brand Management divisions. 'In Marcus Geiss and Petra von Strombeck, two
former Executive Board members are returning to the company who already
worked very successfully for Tipp24 in the past. We are now ideally
prepared for the national and international challenges that lie ahead,'
states Dr. Cornehl. By expanding its Executive Board, Tipp24 is laying the
foundation for further sustainable growth.

Dr. Hans Cornehl will be Chairman of the expanded Executive Board. He has
been leading Tipp24 SE as the sole member of the Executive Board since 1
October 2009. He remains responsible for Strategy, Investor Relations,
Communication, HR and Finance.
