Bob Mobile AG (WKN A0HHJR, ISIN DE000A0HHJR3), 16 March 2011 – Bob Mobile
AG, a dynamically growing holding company in the mobile added-value
services and online games sector, is strengthening its games subsidiary,
Just A Game GmbH, with the acquisition of the Berlin-based online games
publisher, Capital Games GmbH. With the online role-play game, ‘9 Empires’,
which is currently in the open beta phase, and the strategy/build game,
‘Impasse War’, which is intended to be launched in April 2011, Capital
Games has two promising browser games, which will make a crucial
contribution to the Just A Game product offensive during the coming months.

‘With the acquisition of 100% of the shares of Capital Games GmbH, we
finalised a real lucky buy. In addition to an earn-out component, we will
finance the acquisition with 8.000 Bob Mobile shares from our own share
holdings’, comments Bob Mobile Chief Executive Officer, Remco Westermann.
‘With ‘9 Empires’ and ‘Impasse War’, Capital Games has two potential
blockbusters that ideally complement the Just A Game product range. With
this, we have laid the foundation for the next growth spurt of our games
subsidiary’, says Westermann.

In addition to ‘9 Empires’ and ‘Impasse War’, Just A Games will launch
‘Kingdom of Gondal – The Dark Empire’, another online browser game, in the
second quarter 2011, which has the potential to follow on from the
successes of the War2Glory flagship game. Kingdom of Gondal is the
successor of the successful role-play Gondal, with around 1.5 million
registered players. The launch in the German-speaking region is planned for
May 2011. Furthermore, Just A Game is planning to publish three social
games in the second half-year, which will go online from September and are
intended to appeal to new customer groups.

In the meantime, War2Glory continues its successful course. Thanks to the
successful internationalisation of the game, the number of registered
players has now climbed to more than 800,000. Just A Game is developing
additional markets with the start of the Polish language version in March,
the start of the Italian language version in April, as well as the French
language version in June 2011. ‘In order to further increase the
attractiveness of the game and keep up with the rapid growth, we are
continuously investing in software and technology. Among other things, we
have now replaced the initially used virtual servers with physical servers.
Overall we are well on track for exceeding the envisaged sales of ten
million euro with Just A Game for 2011, says a confident Remco Westermann.
‘As we also see a positive development in the licence trading sector, I
view the coming months with optimism.’
