London & Dublin | July 13, 2016: 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, is pleased to announce that it has raised £450,000 (before expenses) through a non-pre-emptive placing (the “Placing”) of 1,500,000 new ordinary shares of £0.01 each per share ("Ordinary Shares") at an issue price of 30p per Ordinary Share (“Placing Shares”) to David Capital Partners, LLC and certain of its associates ("David Capital"). The Placing Shares will represent 2.2 per cent of the enlarged issued share capital of GAN.

 

The Company plans to use the net proceeds of the Placing to continue the expansion of both real-money Regulated Gaming and Simulated Gaming™ opportunities in the US, particularly in light of recent regulatory developments in Pennsylvania announced by GAN on June 29 where Internet gaming legislation is approved in principle and reasonably anticipated to become law in Autumn/Fall of this year.

 

The Placing was effected using the Company's existing authorities to allot shares on a non-pre-emptive basis which were obtained from shareholders at the Company's General Meeting on June 30, 2016. The Placing is conditional upon admission of the Placing Shares to trading on AIM and ESM. The Placing Shares will rank pari passu with the existing Ordinary Shares and application has been made to the London Stock Exchange and the Irish Stock Exchange for the Placing Shares to be admitted to trading on AIM and ESM respectively (“Admission”) and Admission is expected to become effective on 14 July 2016. Upon Admission, GAN’s enlarged issued share capital will consist of 66,801,924 Ordinary Shares.

 

Dermot Smurfit, CEO of GAN commented on the development:

 

This placing brings GAN the support of Chicago-based David Capital Partners and actively raises awareness of GAN’s investment case among the US technology investment community whom we believe are natural investors for our business. We have a strong and unique product offering, a growing client base and sufficient capital for our current and expected business needs. The directors of GAN do not anticipate any further capital requirements at this time.”
