Change in Executive Board

Tipp24 AG: Jens Schumann retires from Executive Board

Jens Schumann (36), joint founder and Chairman of the Executive Board of
Tipp24 AG, is to leave the company for personal reasons as of 30 September
2009. He will continue to assist Tipp24 in an advisory capacity. Schumann
took the decision in coordination with the Supervisory Board and Executive
Board, and leaves on amicable terms.

From the beginning of the fourth quarter, and until further notice, Dr.
Hans Cornehl (41) will be the sole Executive Board member of Tipp24 AG. He
has already served on the Executive Board for over seven years.

Jens Schumann: 'Since the foundation of Tipp24 as a classic Internet
start-up ten years ago, my colleagues and I have led the company through
highs and lows prior to our admission to the SDAX index. Despite the legal
uncertainties of the past few years, Tipp24 is now well equipped for the
future - as demonstrated, for example, by the positive development of our
business in the first half of 2009. I thus feel I have achieved my personal
targets for Tipp24. However, I will continue to be available for advice and
will remain in close contact, not least in my capacity as a major
shareholder.'

Since 2006, Schumann has devoted much of his time to lobbying and the legal
disputes of Tipp24 AG in connection with the new State Treaty on Gaming in
Germany. These responsibilities were already taken over by Magnus von
Zitzewitz (41) as of 1 May 2009.

The Supervisory Board and Dr. Hans Cornehl would like to thank Jens
Schumann for his outstanding commitment to the company. 'Since the
foundation of Tipp24 in September 1999, Jens Schumann has successfully led
and shaped the company. We wish him all the best in his private life and as
much success with his future business ventures as he enjoyed with Tipp24,'
states Klaus Jaenecke, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of Tipp24 AG.
