Tipp24 has been trading as Tipp24 SE, since 28 December 2009, the date on
which the Hamburg registrar of companies registered the merger of Egela
Beteiligungsverwaltungs AG and Tipp24 AG for the purpose of establishing a
European Public Company (Societas Europaea, SE) as approved at this year's
Annual General Meeting.

The conversion to an SE underscores the development from a company
primarily active in the German market to a holding company with a broad
portfolio of investments in neighbouring European countries.

The headquarters in Hamburg and the listing of Tipp24 stock in the
Frankfurt Stock Exchange's Prime Standard market segment are not affected
by the change in legal form.

About Tipp24 SE: Tipp24 SE holds equity interests in a number of companies
in Spain, Italy and the UK, which enable participation in lottery-based
games via the Internet, especially via the websites www.ventura24.es,
www.giochi24.it, www.mylotto24.co.uk and www.tipp24.com. In Germany, the
subsidiary Tipp24 Entertainment GmbH operates the games platform
www.tipp24games.de. Since its foundation, Tipp24 SE has brokered tickets
worth over 1.5 billion euros to state lottery companies - in recent years
over 330 million euros annually. Shares in Tipp24 SE have been traded at
the Frankfurt Stock Exchange since 2005. In June 2009, the company was
admitted to the SDAX index.
