– Red Herring’s editorial team selects CLIQ Digital from hundreds of
companies to compete for the European Red Herring Award

Dusseldorf, March 21, 2013 – CLIQ Digital, a leading provider of mobile
games, apps, software and entertainment content, announced today it has
been selected as a finalist for Red Herring’s Top 100 Europe award, a
prestigious list honoring the year’s most promising technology ventures
from the European business region.

The Red Herring editorial team selected the most innovative companies from
a pool of hundreds from across Europe. The nominees are evaluated on 20
main quantitative and qualitative criterions: they include disruptive
impact, market footprint, proof of concept, financial performance,
technology innovation, social value, quality of management, execution of
strategy and integration into their respective industries.

This unique assessment of potential is complemented by a review of the
actual track record and standing of a company, which allows Red Herring to
see past the ‘buzz’ and make the list a valuable instrument for discovering
and advocating the greatest business opportunities in the industry.

‘This year was rewarding, beyond all expectations’ says Alex Vieux,
publisher and CEO of Red Herring. ‘The global economic situation has abated
and there are many great companies producing really innovative and amazing
products. We had a very difficult time narrowing the pool and selecting the
finalists. CLIQ Digital shows great promise and therefore deserves to be
among the finalists. Now we’re faced with the difficult task of selecting
the Top 100 winners of Red Herring Europe. We know that the 2013 crop will
grow into some amazing companies that are sure to make an impact.’

CLIQ Digital’s CEO Luc Voncken says: ‘We are immensely proud to be
nominated for the Red Herring 100 Award. The Red Herring Top 100 Europe
Awards are seen as one of our industry’s most prestigious recognitions and
it complements our recent achievements in innovation and business growth.’

CLIQ Digital AG recently announced it decided to focus on mobile games,
apps, entertainment and software which fits the core competences of the
company. CLIQ Digital released its positive outlook for 2013 with an
expected EBITDA of at least EUR 11.5 million.

Luc Voncken continues: ‘CLIQ has successfully monetized the mobile market
for many years and with our current and future product line-up we will
continue to wow audiences around the globe, focusing on consumers with
internet connected devices, feature phones to smart phones.’

Finalists for the 2013 edition of the Red Herring 100 Europe award are
selected based upon their technological innovation, management strength,
market size, investor record, customer acquisition, and financial health.
During the months leading up to the announcement, hundreds of companies in
the telecommunications, security, Web 2.0, software, hardware, biotech,
mobile and other industries completed their submissions to qualify for the
award.

The Finalists are invited to present their winning strategies at the Red
Herring Europe Forum in Amsterdam, April 8-10, 2013. The Top 100 winners
will be announced at a special awards ceremony the evening of April 10 at
the event.

Cliq Digital AG concentrates on mobile business

  • 12/03/2013

– Announced withdrawal from online browser games (MMOG) business largely
completed
– Sole focus now on mobile, as announced in November 2012
– Just A Game’s mobile activities remain with Cliq Digital

Dusseldorf, March 12th, 2013 – Cliq Digital AG, a leading mobile provider
of games, apps, software and entertainment content, focuses entirely on its
mobile strategy. This renewed focus on mobile complements Cliq Digital’s
core competences.

MMOG activities sold

The Cliq Digital subsidiary Just A Game GmbH has sold its Browser Games
division. The intellectual property in so called Massive Multiplayer Online
Games (MMOG) for PC browsers have been acquired by a German company already
engaged in this area. Both parties have agreed not to disclose any
transaction details.

Financial consequences taken into account in 2012 results

The decision to sell Just a Game’s assets was already made last year and
therefore financial consequences were taken into account at the same time.
The divesture of the assets is already included in the 2012 preliminary
figures published on February, 21st.

Continued cooperation on mobile games

Cliq Digital will continue publishing new games for mobile devices. For the
sold PC browser games that also exist in mobile form, Cliq Digital will
cooperate with the buyer and continues to publish these games.

Luc Voncken, CEO of Cliq Digital, explains: ‘I am pleased that we were
promptly able to complete the divestment of our online PC games activities.
The experiences within the online PC browser games sector were valuable for
the development of our mobile strategy, but there are also key differences
in operating and developing PC titles. We believe there is more growth in
mobile and therefore we decided to focus on mobile games, apps,
entertainment and software. This also fits the core competences of our
company.’

Cliq Digital AG releases preliminary figures for 2012 and outlook for 2013

  • 21/02/2013

– Revenues of EUR 69 million and operative EBITDA of EUR 11 million in 2012
both in line with guidance
– Net income improved strongly in the course of the year, up to EUR 0.4
million
in Q4 2012
– Positive outlook for 2013 with expected EBITDA of at least EUR 11.5
million

Dusseldorf, February 21, 2013 – Cliq Digital AG, a leading provider of
mobile games, apps, software and entertainment content, announces its
preliminary figures for the 2012 financial year. The operative EBITDA
(earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization; excluding
merger and restructuring costs) as the main performance indicator came in
at EUR 11 million in line with guidance (between EUR 10.5 million and EUR
12.5 million). Full year revenues amounted to EUR 69 million (guidance
between EUR 64 million and EUR 74 million). This reflects an increase in
revenues of 98% in comparison to 2011, mainly due to the successful
takeover of Cliq BV in February 2012.

Improved net income
Cliq Digital also turned positive for the first time in Q4 2012 with a net
income of EUR 0.4 million – up strongly compared to Q3 2012 (EUR -0.2
million). Hence, net income strongly improved in the course of 2012
totaling EUR 0.2 million in H2 2012 (H1 2012: -3.2 million) at the upper
end of the guidance of EUR -1.3 million to EUR 0.2 million.

Luc Voncken, CEO of Cliq Digital AG, is very pleased with the preliminary
figures: ‘Our strategy has developed positively with improved revenues and
earnings from our core business. Due to these successful developments,
management is optimistic for the current financial year and expects an
EBITDA of at least EUR 11.5 million.’

Revenues in the fourth quarter 2012 increased to EUR 17 million (Q3 2012:
EUR 15 million). In the same period operative EBITDA came in at EUR 2.0
million (Q3 2012: EUR 2.7 million). The decrease is mainly due to
additional marketing expenses of EUR 0.7 million in Q4 2012 – building a
strong base for improved earnings in the 2013 financial year.

All figures are on a pro forma basis, consolidating Cliq BV for full 12
months of the 2012 financial year. On IFRS basis, Cliq BV is consolidated
since February 2012. All figures are unaudited.
