Gross revenue increased in the third quarter by 16% to EUR 16.8 million from EUR 14.5 million in the second quarter. Compared to the third quarter of 2018 (EUR 14.1 million), the growth is 18%. The increase in gross and net revenue was driven by the rise in marketing spend from EUR 4.8 million in the second quarter to EUR 6.5 million in Q3 2019, combined with an improved CLIQ factor of 1.46 in Q2 2019 versus 1.53 in Q3 2019.

The CLIQ Digital Group increased its total marketing spend for the third quarter by 59% to EUR 6.5 million compared to EUR 4.1 million in the prior-year period. Marketing spend in the third quarter also increased significantly by 37% compared to EUR 4.8 million in the previous quarter of 2019. The increase in marketing spend is mainly attributable to the successful direct media buy strategy.

EBITDA for the third quarter of 2019 came in at EUR 1.9 million. This represents an increase of 39% compared to the EBITDA for the second quarter of 2019 (EUR 1.4 million) and 128% compared to the third quarter of 2018 (EUR 0.8 million). The EBITDA is also positively influenced by the result of the restructuring during the first quarter of 2019.

Development of KPIs

All key performance indicators show a clear improvement compared to previous periods. The CLIQ factor represents the ratio of revenue to costs per customer and is a key indicator for measuring the profitability of new customers. The CLIQ factor increased above expectations to 1.53 in Q3 2019, compared with 1.46 in the previous quarter. The increase compared to the CLIQ factor of 2018 (1.32) shows the successful integration of the direct media buy strategy by the CLIQ Digital group.

In the first nine months of 2019, the average CLIQ factor increased to 1.45, compared with 1.38 in the prior-year period.

The customer base value, an important indicator for estimating the expected cash inflow based on existing customers, came in at EUR 25.5 million at the end of the third quarter of 2019 compared to EUR 24.5 million at the end of the second quarter of 2019 and also up on the prior-year quarter (Q3 2018: EUR 22.0 million).

CLIQ Digital AG publishes audited consolidated financial statements for 2018 – return to growth path in 2019

– Audited Group figures 2018 correspond to the preliminary figures of 14 February 2019
– Forecast 2019: organic growth through rising marketing expenses

Düsseldorf, 4 April 2019 – CLIQ Digital AG (ISIN DE000A0HHJR3, WKN A0HHJR), a leading direct marketing and distribution organization for digital products with its own global payment and distribution platform, today publishes its audited consolidated financial statements for fiscal year 2018 and forecast for 2019.

Revenue and earnings development (in EUR million)

2018  2017
Revenue 58.2 70.5
Net revenue 39.1 42.5
EBITDA (adjusted) 3.9 5.5
EBIT 3.0 5.2
Net profit 3.0 3.4
     
Non-Controlling Interest 0.8 0.1
Attributable to the shareholders 2.2 3.3

 

Following the impressive financial performance in the year 2017 the financial year 2018 proved to be challenging for the CLIQ Digital Group. 2018 was characterized by the integration of the acquisitions in the United Kingdom (2017) and France as well as the newly incorporated office in the United States into the CLIQ Digital Group.

The Group generated in 2018 revenues of EUR 58.2 million (2017: EUR 70.5 million) representing a decrease of 17.4% compared to the previous year. Net revenues (revenues after deduction of costs for payment service providers) decreased with 8% from EUR 42.5 million last year to 39.1 million in the period under review.  The decrease in revenues can be allocated to a slow start in 2018 due to lower marketing spend in the fourth quarter of 2017 related to temporary delays in new product launches and the lower CLIQ-factor of 1.36 (2017: 1.47). The CLIQ factor represents the ratio of revenue to costs per customer and is a key indicator for measuring the profitability of new customers. The decrease in CLIQ-factor is caused by the shift from affiliate marketing to direct media buying which provides more control over the advertisement campaigns.

EBITDA adjusted for amortization of capitalized customer acquisition costs decreased in 2018 to EUR 3.9 million compared to EUR 5.5 million in the previous year caused by the lower revenues. Net profit decreased from EUR 3.4 million last year to EUR 3.0 million in the year under review. Cumulative earnings per share (EPS diluted) came in at EUR 0.34 in 2018 compared to EUR 0.52 in the previous year.

Development of KPI’s

The customer base value – an important indicator for estimating the expected net revenue of existing customers – increased by 9% to EUR 24 million in the fourth quarter of 2018 from EUR 22 million at the end of the third quarter as a result of increased marketing expenses (Q4/2018: EUR 4.7 million compared to Q3/2018: EUR 4.1 million). For the full year 2018, marketing expenses totaled EUR 18.8 million, slightly above the previous year’s level of EUR 18.6 million.

Outlook 2019

Following a successful start to 2019, the CLIQ Digital Group is aiming for steady organic growth in the current financial year through (slightly) rising marketing expenses and a CLIQ factor at the 2018 level. In conjunction with the focus on synergies and cost reductions in the individual business areas of the Group, CLIQ Digital expects EBITDA to be (slightly) higher than in 2018. Overall, the Management Board is confident that CLIQ Digital will return to its growth path in the current financial year.

CLIQ Digital AG announces figures for the first 9-months of 2018 – Cumulative Net Result before non-controlling interest at EUR 2.2 million, slightly higher cumulative marketing spend

– Cumulative net revenues decreased by 10% to EUR 29.9 million (9-months 2017: EUR 33.1 million) due to a weaker summer period and lower CLIQ factor

– Cumulative marketing spend slightly higher 9M/2018 (+1.4%)

– Net result for the first 9-months at EUR 2.2 million before non-controlling interest compared to EUR 2.5 million for the same period in 2017

 

Dusseldorf, November 21, 2018– CLIQ Digital AG (ISIN DE000A0HHJR3, GSIN A0HHJR), a leading direct marketing and sales organization for digital products with its own global payment and distribution platform, today announces its business development for the first 9-months of 2018.

Revenue and earnings development

In the period from 1 January to 30 September 2018, the CLIQ Digital Group generated net revenues (revenue after deduction of the cost for the payment service providers) of EUR 29.9 million (2017: EUR 33.1 million). The decline in revenues in the reporting period 2018 was due to a lower CLIQ factor of 1.36 (9-months 2017:1.47) and less than anticipated sales due to the long warm summer period. Marketing spend for the first nine months of 2018 is slightly higher (+1,4%) compared to the same period in 2017, not taking into account the realized margin from our acquired media buy company Affimobiz.

EBITDA adjusted for depreciation, amortization and impairment losses on capitalized customer acquisition costs amounted to EUR 2.9 million (9-months 2017: EUR 4.2 million) due to the lower revenue level and CLIQ factor. Net Result before non-controlling interest came in at EUR 2.2 million compared to EUR 2.5 million during the same period of 2017. Accumulated earnings per share (EPS) amounted to EUR 0.27 (9-months 2017: EUR 0.39).

Development of KPI’s

At 1.36, the CLIQ factor in the first nine months of 2018 was below the prior-year figure of 1.47. The CLIQ factor represents the ratio of sales to costs per customer and is a decisive indicator for measuring the profitability of new customers. The lower CLIQ factor is caused by new learnings with direct media buy in several countries (versus media buy via affiliate partners). Management expects to capitalize on these learnings going forward. The customer base value, an important indicator for estimating the expected cash inflow based on current customer relationships, was EUR 22.0 million at the end of the third quarter 2018 compared to EUR 25.0 million at June 30, 2018.

Given the current developments management expects an increase in marketing spend for the 4th quarter of approximately 20% compared to the previous low quarter(s), they do not see the results ending by a growth as expected at the beginning of this year.

With the current developments, management is confident to grow the company again in 2019.

The 9-months figures for 2018 are unaudited and were not subject to review.

CLIQ Digital AG announces figures for the second quarter and first half year 2018 – Net result increased in the first half year by 19% (before non-controlling interest)

 

– Revenues in Q2 2018 slightly increased to EUR 15.3 million compared to Q1 2018 (EUR 15.2 million)

– Adjusted EBITDA in H1 2018 amounts to EUR 2.0 million (H1 2017: EUR 2.5 million), influenced by lower CLIQ factor (H1 2018: 1.38 / H1 2017: 1.48)

– Marketing expenses in Q2 2018 significantly increased compared to Q1 2018 (+ 16%)

– Strong net result (+ 19%) to EUR 1.8 million despite lower revenues (H1 2017: EUR 1.5 million)

 

Dusseldorf, August 16, 2018 – CLIQ Digital AG (ISIN DE000A0HHJR3, GSIN A0HHJR), a leading direct marketing and sales organization for digital products with its own global payment and distribution platform, today announces its business development for the first half year and the second quarter of 2018.

Revenue and earnings development

In the period from 1 January to 30 June 2018, the CLIQ Digital Group generated revenues of EUR 30.5 million (H1 2017: EUR 34.9 million). The decline in revenues in the first half of 2018 was due to lower marketing expenses in the fourth quarter of 2017 mainly caused by temporary delays in new product launches, which were reversed in the reporting period. CLIQ Digital Group is continuously investing in its product portfolio to further increase revenue and results. Revenues already showed a slight increase (+1%) to EUR 15.3 million in the second quarter compared to the previous quarter (Q1 2018: EUR 15.2 million). However, the revenues after deduction of payment provider costs showed an increase of 7% to EUR 10.6 million for the same period. CLIQ Digital Group increased its total marketing expenses by 16% to EUR 5.3 million in Q2 2018 compared to EUR 4.6 million in the first quarter of 2018.

EBITDA adjusted for depreciation, amortization and impairment losses on capitalized customer acquisition costs amounted to EUR 2.0 million (H1 2017: EUR 2.5 million) due to the lower revenue level and CLIQ factor. However, in the second quarter of 2018 adjusted EBITDA amounted to EUR 1.05 million, thus 8% above the previous quarter (Q1 2018: EUR 0.97 million). Net Result before non-controlling interest, increased significantly to EUR 1.8 million compared to EUR 1.5 million in the first half of 2017, due to an incidental financial result. Accumulated earnings per share (EPS) amounted to EUR 0.23 (H1 2017: EUR 0.24).

 

 

Development in the first half year 2018:

Amounts in million Euros H1/2018 H1/2017
Revenues 30.55 34.92
Revenues after deduction of payment provider costs 20.49 21.35
Marketing spend 9.96 9.62
EBITDA (adjusted) 2.02 2.54
Net result (before non-controlling interest) 1.81 1.52

 

Development of KPIs

At 1.38, the CLIQ factor in the first half of 2018 was below the prior-year figure of 1.48. The CLIQ factor represents the ratio of sales to costs per customer and is a decisive indicator for measuring the profitability of new customers. The customer base value, an important indicator for estimating the expected cash inflow based on current customer relationships, was EUR 25.0 million at the end of the second quarter 2018 compared to EUR 26.5 million at March 31, 2018. Management expects the CLIQ factor to grow again to 1.44 by the end of the year 2018 with a positive effect on the value of the customer base value.

The 6-month figures for 2018 are unaudited and were not subject to review. The complete interim report will be available on the CLIQ Digital AG website in the Investor Relations section at the end of September 2018.

CLIQ Digital AG announces figures for the first quarter 2018 – Intensified marketing activities lay the foundation for a successful 2018 financial year

– Revenue in first quarter 2018 at EUR 15.2 million (Q1 2017: EUR 17.6 million)

– Revenue after deduction of payment provider costs increased by 5% compared to Q4 2017

– Adjusted EBIT stable at EUR 1.1 million (Q1 2017: EUR 1.1 million)

– Marketing spend in Q1 2018 significantly higher compared to Q4 2017

– US activities started

Dusseldorf, May 8, 2018 – CLIQ Digital AG (ISIN DE000A0HHJR3, GSIN A0HHJR), a leading direct marketing and sales organization for digital products with its own global payment and distribution platform, today announced its business development for the first three months in 2018.

Revenue and earnings development

In the period January to March 2018, the CLIQ Digital Group generated revenues of EUR 15.2 million (Q1 2017: EUR 17.6 million). As expected and already communicated with the publication of the audited consolidated financial statements on April 9, 2018, revenues of the company were below the same period of the previous year. The decline in revenues in the first quarter of 2018 was due to lower marketing spend in the fourth quarter of 2017 related to temporary delays in new product launches. These delays were successfully resolved during the reporting period. The revenue generated after payment provider costs increased to EUR 9.9 million (Q4 2017: EUR 9.4 million). The CLIQ Digital Group increased its total marketing spend by approximately 30% to EUR 4.6 million (of which EUR 3.9 million have been capitalized) in the first quarter of 2018 compared to EUR 3.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2017, which will already have a positive impact on revenues in the second quarter of 2018.

EBITDA adjusted for depreciation, amortization and impairment losses on capitalized customer acquisition costs – a key indicator for the success of CLIQ Digital AG – was at EUR 1.0 million in the reporting period, almost at the level of the previous year (Q1 2017: EUR 1.1 million) despite the lower level of revenues. Earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT) of EUR 0.9 million were below the figure of the previous year of EUR 1.1 million due to the acquisition costs of the French media buying specialist AffiMobiz. Net profit in the first quarter of 2018 was EUR 0.5 million after EUR 0.6 million in the first quarter of 2017. Cumulative earnings per share (EPS) amounted to EUR 0.08 in the reporting period (Q1 2017: EUR 0.09).

Adjusted for the acquisition costs, the view on the earnings side is more positive: the adjusted EBIT in the first quarter of 2018, at EUR 1.1 million, was at the level of the previous year (Q1 2017: EUR 1.1 million). The adjusted EBIT margin rose to 7.2% (Q1 2017: 6.0%). Net profit before non-controlling interests (adjusted for acquisition costs) increased by 26% to EUR 0.8 million (Q1 2017: EUR 0.6 million). After non-controlling interests and adjusted for acquisition costs, CLIQ Digital generated a net profit of EUR 0.6 million in the first quarter of 2018 (Q1 2017: EUR 0.6 million).

Development of KPI’s

The CLIQ factor declined slightly by around 1% to 1.42 in the first quarter of 2018, compared with 1.44 in the same quarter of the prior year. The CLIQ factor represents the ratio of revenue to costs per customer and is a key indicator for measuring the profitability of new customers. At the same time, the customer base value, an important indicator for estimating the expected cash inflow based on existing customers, increased year-on-year, amounting to EUR 26.5 million at the end of the first quarter of 2018 after EUR 20.5 million as of March 31, 2017.

Foundation of a subsidiary in the USA

CLIQ Digital is continuing its internationalization and founded a new subsidiary in the US during the reporting period. With Netacy Inc., the Group is particularly pursuing the expansion of its business in the US. For the US market, CLIQ Digital has also exclusively licensed the rights for specific concepts and content from the US company Hippo Investments, a long-standing partner of CLIQ Digital. In addition to the start of these licensed concepts, CLIQ Digital will soon launch its streaming content portals in the US, which will be marketed through the licensed alliances and other media channels.

The 3-month figures for 2018 are unaudited and were not subject to review.

CLIQ Digital AG publishes audited consolidated financial statements for 2017 – ambitious double-digit increase in earnings for 2018

– Audited group figures for 2017 are in line with preliminary figures as of February 15, 2018

– Net profit (before non-controlling interests) rises by 23% to EUR 3.4 million (2016: EUR 2.7 million)

– Customer base value grows by 24% to EUR 26 million (2016: EUR 21 million)

– Outlook 2018: ambitious double-digit increase in earnings and (slightly) higher revenues over the previous year

Dusseldorf, April 9, 2018 – CLIQ Digital AG (ISIN DE000A0HHJR3, WKN A0HHJR), a leading direct marketing and sales organization for digital products with its own global payment and distribution platform, today publishes its audited consolidated financial statements for fiscal 2017 and its outlook for 2018.

Revenue and earnings development (in EUR million)

2017  2016
Revenue 70.5 65.3
EBITDA (adjusted) 5.5 5.1
EBIT 5.2 4.5
Net profit (before non-controlling interests) 3.4 2.7
Net profit (after non-controlling interests) 3.3 2.7

 

CLIQ Digital AG continued its international growth in the year under review. With a local presence in one of its main markets (UK), the group succeeded in significantly boosting its sales power. Revenue increased by 8% to EUR 70.5 million (2016: EUR 65.3 million) due to a higher CLIQ factor of 1.47 (2016: 1.41). The higher CLIQ factor compensated lower marketing spend, which amounted to EUR 18.6 million in the year under review (2016: EUR 21.6 million).

In the year under review, CLIQ Digital focused on increasing the quality of traffic with a higher CLIQ factor and reduced the number of media partners. This resulted in an 8% revenue increase (instead of a double-digit growth in revenue as originally envisaged) and led to a very pleasing development in earnings. As expected, CLIQ Digital achieved double-digit growth rates in EBIT, which rose strongly by 15% from EUR 4.5 million to EUR 5.2 million in the year under review. As a result, the EBIT margin (EBIT/Gross Revenue) improved from 6.9% in the previous year to 7.3%. Net profit before non-controlling interests rose significantly to EUR 3.4 million after EUR 2.7 million in the previous year (+23%). Cumulative earnings per share (EPS diluted) improved from EUR 0.43 in the previous year to EUR 0.53 in 2017.

Development of KPI’s in 2017

The profitability of CLIQ Digital improved significantly in the year under review due to higher-margin marketing campaigns and a higher ARPU (average revenue per user) in Europe. In 2017, the European market accounted for 76% of total revenues (2016: 82%). Thanks to the concentration on high-margin markets, the ARPU rose by 12% to EUR 13.16 (2016: EUR 11.73). The company recorded an 8% increase in costs per customer acquisition (CPA). As a result, the ratio of ARPU to CPA (CLIQ factor) increased from EUR 1.41 in 2016 to EUR 1.47 in 2017, clearly underlining the increased customer profitability. The customer base value – an important indicator for estimating the expected net revenue of existing customers – rose by 24% to EUR 26 million in 2017 compared to EUR 21 million in the previous year.

Balance sheet 2017

CLIQ Digital generated a cash flow from its operating business of EUR 5.1 million (2016: EUR 0.5 million). The successful business performance in the financial year 2017 also enabled CLIQ Digital AG to further reduce its liabilities with its financial institution, which were EUR 5.7 million as of December 31, 2017, around 46% below the previous year’s figure of EUR 10.6 million as of December 31, 2016. Payments on corporate income tax of approximately EUR 2 million during the first half year of 2018 have to be considered. Consolidated equity amounted to EUR 46.5 million as of the 2017 balance sheet date, compared to EUR 43.4 million in the previous year. CLIQ Digital thus has a solid financial foundation to keep on pursuing its ambitious expansion targets in the future.

Outlook 2018

After a successful year in 2017 and a challenging start to the current fiscal year (due to lower marketing expenses during the last quarter of 2017), the CLIQ Digital Group is aiming for an ambitious double-digit increase in earnings in 2018. We expect the first quarter results to be lower compared to what we achieved in the previous year, this is due to delays in our product and market offerings.  This was resolved by the end of the 1st quarter. The first quarter marketing spend of 2018 increased compared to the last quarter of 2017. The expected increase in marketing spend for 2018 will again lead to higher revenues, compared to the previous year.

– Significant reduction of net debt of around 48% to EUR 5.5 million (2016: EUR 10.6 million)

 

Dusseldorf, February 15, 2018 – CLIQ Digital AG (ISIN DE000A0HHJR3, WKN A0HHJR), a leading direct marketing and sales organization for digital products with its own global payment and distribution platform, today announces its preliminary financial figures for the financial year 2017. In the year under review, the company was able to continue its international growth once again, posting a double-digit increase in earnings.

EBITDA (adjusted) 5.5 5.1
EBIT 5.2 4.5
Net profit (before non-controlling interests) 3.4 2.7
Net profit (after non-controlling interests) 3.3 2.7

 

According to preliminary calculations, the CLIQ Digital Group generated revenues of EUR 70.5 million (2016: EUR 65.3 million) in the financial year 2017, representing an increase of 8%, caused by a higher CLIQ Factor of 1.47 (2016: 1.41). The higher CLIQ factor compensated the lower marketing spend, which amounted to EUR 18.6 million in the year under review, compared with EUR 21.6 million in the previous year.

The profitability of the CLIQ Digital Group improved significantly in the reporting period compared to the previous year. According to preliminary calculations, EBITDA adjusted for amortization and impairments of capitalized customer acquisition costs (+9%) and EBIT (+15%) increased both compared to the previous year. EBIT climbed strongly from EUR 4.5 million to EUR 5.2 million. This represents an increase in the EBIT margin (EBIT/Gross Revenue) compared with the prior year from 6.9% to 7.3%.

Net profit before non-controlling interest rose significantly in the reporting period to EUR 3.4 million, compared with EUR 2.7 million in the previous year (+23%). Cumulative earnings per share (EPS diluted) improved from EUR 0.43 in the previous year to EUR 0.53 in 2017.

The customer base value grew by 24% to EUR 26 million in 2017, compared to EUR 21 million in the previous year. The customer base value is an important indicator for estimating the expected net revenues of existing customers.

The successful business development in the financial year 2017 also enabled CLIQ Digital AG to further reduce its liabilities to its financial institution, which were EUR 5.5 million as of December 31, 2017, around 48% below the previous year’s figure of EUR 10.6 million as of December 31, 2016. Payments on Corporate Income Tax of approximately EUR 2 million during the first half year of 2018 have to be considered.

The business figures for 2017 are preliminary and have not yet been audited.

CLIQ Digital AG publishes emoji app of the social celebrity Senna Gammour

Dusseldorf, September 1, 2017 – CLIQ Digital AG (ISIN DE000A0HHJR3, GSIN A0HHJR) is releasing the next offspring of its “CLIQMOJI” apps, after the exclusive emoji app produced for Formula 1 World Champion Lewis Hamilton. We now introduce: “Miss Gammour Emojis”.

“Miss Gammour Emojis” was realized in cooperation with the former Monrose singer Senna Gammour, known from Popstars, and TubeOne Networks, who has already been successfully cooperating with social influencers and brands since 2012. The emojis are picture characters, which are mainly used by young customers in the everyday communication via smartphones.

“Miss Gammour Emojis” offers iOS and Android users more than a hundred unique emojis created in close cooperation with the charismatic entertainer. The predominantly female target group will receive a broad portfolio of illustrations of Senna – better known in the social networks as “Miss Gammour” – including provocative gestures, trendy lifestyle items or funny facial expressions. The emojis can be easily shared with friends via WhatsApp, Twitter, Snapchat, Facebook and other instant messengers as well as social networks. The recipient does not necessarily need to have the emoji app installed.

“I am delighted to be the first German celebrity to have an own emoji app,” comments Senna Gammour. “The creative work with CLIQ Digital has been a lot of fun, and I am sure my fans will enjoy using my emojis as much as I do.”

“Miss Gammour Emojis” is available as of today in the official App Stores. The latest set of emojis is a very good example to underline the expansion of CLIQ Digital in the social media area. Senna Gammour has more than a million followers on social networks and is marketed exclusively by TubeOne Networks. The German social influencer network TubeOne combines 500+ channels on social platforms such as Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, YouTube and Facebook with 600 million video videos per month and 50 million social media fans.

“That we have reached an agreement with Senna Gammour for the distribution of an emoji app is great. Emojis are fun to use and cheeky and make the daily communication of the users via smartphone more colorful and simple. As a (self) marketing tool for celebrities and companies, we see great potential for personalized emojis. They are small, digital brand ambassadors of the publisher, symbolically illustrating the lifestyle of the user in his everyday communication,” according to the Management Board of CLIQ Digital AG.

New emoji-App with Formula 1 world champion Lewis Hamilton – CLIQ Digital AG distributes Emojis with the world-renowned racing driver

Dusseldorf, July 17, 2017 – CLIQ Digital AG (ISIN DE000A0HHJR3, WKN A0HHJR), a leading sales and marketing company for digital products with its own payment platform, distributes a unique Emoji app with graphical images of the three-time Formula 1 world champion driver Lewis Hamilton.

Lewis Hamilton adds “I’m using emojis to communicate every day and it’s been pretty cool to put my own packs together. It turned out great and hope you guys have fun with the Hamoji’s!”

Emojis have long been an established form of communication replacing longer terms in digital and mobile communication. Emoji’s iconographic and emotionally nuanced form of expression overcomes language barriers not only in the everyday language but has also found its way into professional correspondence. Hence, the targeted use of emojis in dealing with communication partners is perceived as empathic. CLIQ Digital AG also contributes decisively to this rapid development through the official emoji app of British racing driver Lewis Hamilton.

To corporate customers and their brands, CLIQ Digital offers the “CLIQMOJI” apps on iOS and Android as turnkey full-service solutions for their brands. This includes, besides its release on the App Store, the related marketing, and development of the emoji designs. The apps then contain hundreds of unique brand-specific emojis that can be shared with other people via instant messengers such as WhatsApp, Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook Messenger. With the innovative “CLIQMOJI” apps brands can target the monetization of the communication of social media followers.

– Double-digit growth rates in revenue and results- Forecast 2017 confirmed: double-digit growth in revenue, EBITDA, and net profit
– Expansion of CLIQ’s social media services with CLIQMOJI

Dusseldorf, April 11, 2017 – CLIQ Digital AG (ISIN DE000A0HHJR3, WKN A0HHJR), a leading sales and marketing organization for digital products with its own payment platform, today publishes its audited consolidated financial statements for the 2016 fiscal year and confirms the 2017 forecast.

Revenue and earnings development in 2016

The 2016 fiscal year was again a very successful year for CLIQ Digital AG. The group increased revenue by 17.2% to EUR 65.3 million in 2016 (2015: EUR 55.7 million). The company’s substantial rise in marketing spend of 23.4% compared to the previous year resulted overall in a very positive business performance. Marketing spend amounted to EUR21.6million in the period from January to December 2016 (2015: EUR 17.5 million).

Also, CLIQ Digital achieved double-digit growth rates in the consolidated results. Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) increased by 30.5% to EUR26.1million in 2016 (2015:EUR20.0 million). Accordingly, the EBITDA margin rose to 40.0% in the year under review (2015:35.9%). EBITDA adjusted for amortization and impairment charges on capitalized customer acquisition costs amounted to EUR 5.1 million (2015: EUR 4.6 million). EBIT rose even stronger, up 73.1% to EUR 4.5 million (2015: EUR 2.6 million). As a result, the EBIT margin improved year-on-year to 6.9% (2015: 4.7%). The increase in depreciation and amortization is directly attributable to the rise in marketing spend. After minority interests, the net profit in the reporting year rose by 92.9% to EUR 2.7 million (2015: EUR 1.4 million). The cumulative earnings per share (EPS) doubled to EUR 0.44 in 2016 (2015: EUR 0.22).

Development of KPI’s in 2016

CLIQ Digital AG succeeded in further expanding its strong position in the European market in 2016 and growing in this region significantly stronger than in previous years. In addition, CLIQ Digital benefits from higher margins in Europe. The share of the European market in total revenues was 82% in 2016, compared to 69% in the previous year 2015. Through the concentration on high-margin markets, the ARPU (the average net sales per user in the first six months) rose to EUR 11.73 (2015: EUR 10.80).

In 2016, the company also recorded an increase to EUR 8.32 (2015: EUR 7.74) regarding the cost per customer acquisition (CPA). The CLIQ factor, the ratio of ARPU to CPA, as a key indicator of the profitability of new customers, improved in 2016 to 1.41 (2015: 1.40). At the same time, the customer base value, a key figure for estimating the expected net revenue generated by existing customers, increased by 8.9% to EUR 20.9 million in the period under review (2015: EUR 19.2 million).

Balance sheet 2016

In 2016, CLIQ Digital generated a cash flow from its operating business of EUR25.9million (2015:EUR18.2million). The successful business performance in 2016 also allowed the company to reduce its debt with its financing institution significantly. Liabilities to banks amounted to EUR 10.6 million as at 31 December 2016, which is 29% below the previous year’s figure (2015: EUR 14.9 million). At the balance sheet date 2016, the consolidated equity amounted to EUR 43.4 million (2015: EUR 40.7 million). CLIQ Digital AG thus has a solid financial foundation to keep on pursuing its ambitious expansion targets in the future.

Outlook 2017

After a very successful 2016 fiscal year, CLIQ Digital AG started with strong momentum into the current year. For the full year 2017, CLIQ Digital AG targets a rise in marketing spend compared to the previous year. As a result, the Management Board of CLIQ Digital AG expects a double-digit percentage growth compared to the previous year for revenue, EBITDA, and net profit.

CLIQ Digital is setting another strong new trend: Emojis – small images that use symbols to express feelings in chat applications on smartphones or tablet PCs. To its business clients CLIQ Digital offers the “CLIQMOJI” apps on iOS and Android as turnkey full-service solutions for their brands.

The apps then contain hundreds of unique brand-specific Emojis that can be shared with other people via instant messengers such as WhatsApp, Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook Messenger. “With our CLIQMOJIs, we want to offer customers the opportunity to use personalized Emojis. For example, we are working with the Dutch musician/rapper Lil` Kleine (Jorik Scholten), who now also has a growing fan base in Germany. Furthermore, we signed the German pop star and the former member of the renowned girl group Monrose, Senna Gammour”, according the Management Board of CLIQ Digital AG.

Düsseldorf, June 30, 2016 – CLIQ Digital AG (ISIN DE000A0HHJR3, WKN A0HHJR), a leading sales and marketing organization for digital products with its own payment platform, today publishes its audited consolidated annual financial statements for the 2015 fiscal year and information on the 2016 forecast.

Revenue and earnings development in 2015
Thanks to clearly increased marketing expenses, CLIQ Digital Group succeeded in raising revenue by 17.7% to EUR 55.7 million in the 2015 fiscal year (2014: EUR 47.3 million). Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) rose significantly by 73.5% year-on-year to EUR 20.0 million in 2015 (2014: EUR 11.5 million). Adjusted EBITDA (EBITDA -/- Amortization and Impairment of Capitalized Customer Acquisition Costs) increased from EUR 2.2 million in 2014 to EUR 4.6 million in 2015. Net result increased by 30.4% to EUR 1.4 million in 2015 (2014: EUR 1.0 million). The lesser increase in net result compared to EBITDA in 2015 is primarily due to a one-off depreciation of current assets. Cumulative earnings per share (EPS) improved in 2015 to EUR 0.22 (2014: EUR 0.17). EUR 17.5 million was invested in marketing during 2015, representing an increase of 28.3% compared to 2014. The positive overall development of the CLIQ Digital Group is particularly pleasing considering the uncertainties in the Mexico region, which in 2015 led to the discontinuation of the Group’s local business activities.

Development of KPI’s in 2015
Due to the shift to a stronger focus on the markets where relatively high ARPU’s (average net revenue per user) can be generated, the profitability of the Group increased significantly in 2015. The ARPU rose significantly to EUR 10.80 in 2015 (2014: EUR 5.91). Also, the CPA indicator (costs per acquisition) recorded a significant increase from EUR 4.37 in 2014 to EUR 7.74 in 2015. The ARPU to CPA ratio, one of the key factors in assessing the profitability of new customer business, improved further from 1.35 in 2014 to 1.40 in 2015. At the same time, there was also an increase in the customer base value of 28.0% to EUR 19 million compared to EUR 15 million by the end of 2014. The customer base value is an important figure for the expected net revenue that will be generated by the existing customers.

Balance sheet 2015
In 2015 CLIQ Digital generated a cash flow from its operating business of EUR 18.2 million (2014: EUR 9.2 million). As of 31 December 2015, the Group reported consolidated equity of EUR 40.7 million (2014: EUR 39.2 million). The company’s share capital amounts to EUR 6,188,714.00, which consists of 6,188,714 listed shares.

Outlook 2016
CLIQ Digital AG made a good start in the current fiscal year and kept marketing spend in the first quarter of 2016 at the level of the traditionally strong fourth quarter of the previous year. For the whole year 2016 CLIQ Digital AG expects an increase in marketing spend compared to the period under review. Furthermore, the positive development in the past financial year shows that the CLIQ Digital Group has implemented a strategy to enable double-digit growth, but is also capable of dealing with setbacks as seen in 2015, by anticipating on such market developments. Geographically CLIQ Digital is focused on regions with a high ARPU and attractive margins. “This gives us confidence with regard to the further development of the Group. For the current financial year, we once again anticipate a double-digit growth rates for revenue and profits”, commented the Management Board.

CLIQ Digital AG announces preliminary figures for 2015 and business development of the first quarter 2016 – significant increase in profitability

– Revenue climbs 17.7% to EUR 55.7 million in 2015 (2014: EUR 47.3 million)
– EBITDA up more strongly, by 74.8% to EUR 20.1 million in 2015 (2014: EUR 11.5 million)
– Q1 2016: EBITDA rises by 8.8% to EUR 6.4 million (Q1 2015: EUR 5.9 million) with revenue of EUR 15.8 million (Q1 2015: EUR 18.0 million)
– Outlook 2016: double digit percentage growth in revenue, EBITDA and net income expected for the full year

Düsseldorf, May 9, 2016 – CLIQ Digital AG (ISIN DE000A0HHJR3, WKN A0HHJR), a leading sales and marketing organization for digital products with it’s own payment platform, reports the results for the preliminary figures of the 2015 financial year and the business development of the first three months in 2016.

Development in revenue in 2015
The CLIQ Digital Group increased its revenue by 17.7% to EUR 55.7 million in 2015 (2014: EUR 47.3 million). The substantial rise in the company’s marketing spend in the past financial year (+28.3% compared to 2014) resulted in a good business performance overall. In the financial year 2015, marketing spend amounted to EUR 17.5 million as against EUR 13.7 million in the previous year.

Development in earnings in 2015
EBITDA increased in 2015 to EUR 20.1 million (2014: EUR 11.5 million), which corresponds to a year-on-year growth of 74.8%. CLIQ Digital generated, according to preliminary results, a net result of EUR 1.4 million in the past financial year (2014: EUR 1.0 million). This equates to a 30.7% rise. The lower relative growth of net income compared to EBITDA in 2015 is mainly caused by one time depreciations of current assets. In 2015, earnings per share (EPS) improved to EUR 0.22 (2014: EUR 0.17).

Development of KPI’s in 2015
ARPU (the average net revenue per user in the first 6 months) exceeded expectations of the business year 2015, increasing from EUR 5.91 in the 2014 financial year to EUR 10.80 in 2015. CPA (the cost per acquisition) registered also an increase to EUR 7.74 in 2015 compared to EUR 4.37 in the 2014 financial year. The ratio of ARPU to CPA, one of the most determining factors for the profitability of the new acquired customer, improved from 1.35 in the year 2014 to 1.40 in 2015. At the same time, the customer base value, an important figure for estimating expected cash inflow on the basis of the current customer base, increased by 28% from EUR 15.0 million as of December 31, 2014 to EUR 19.2 million as of December 31, 2015.

Development in the first quarter of 2016
With revenue of EUR 15.8 million (Q1 2015: EUR 18.0 million), CLIQ Digital AG realized an increase of 8.8% in EBITDA to EUR 6.4 million in the first quarter of the current financial year compared to last year (Q1 2015: EUR 5.9 million). The revenue of CLIQ Digital has seen a constant quarter over quarter growth since Q2 2015 (Q2 2015: EUR 11.3 million; Q3 2015: EUR 12.0 million; Q4 2015: EUR 14.3 million; Q1 2016: EUR 15.8 million). In the first three months of the current financial year, marketing spend amounted to EUR 5.8 million after EUR 4.7 million in the same period of the previous year. In the first quarter of 2016, the net result was EUR 0.4 million (Q1 2015: EUR 0.6 million). The ARPU to CPA ratio further improved from 1.40 in 2015 to 1.41 in the first quarter of 2016.

Outlook 2016
In the first quarter of 2016 CLIQ Digital AG was able to keep the marketing spend at the same level as the traditionally strong fourth quarter of the previous year. For the coming quarters CLIQ Digital AG expects to show an increase in marketing spend compared to the same period last year. Therefore, the Management Board of CLIQ Digital AG anticipates double-digit percentage growth in revenue, EBITDA and net income for the 2016 financial year compared to the previous year.

The 2015 business figures are preliminary figures that have not been audited yet. The 3-month figures for 2016 are unaudited and were not subject to a review. CLIQ Digital AG will issue detailed information on its business and earnings performance in the final audited annual financial statements for 2015 prepared in accordance with IFRS when the 2015 annual report is published on 30 June 2016.

The company increased its marketing expenditure significantly in the third quarter 2015 which lays the foundation for a strong year-end business.

Development in revenue
Revenues of the CLIQ Digital group showed an increase to EUR 41.4 million in the first 9 months of 2015 compared to the EUR 34.4 million in the prior year period. The 20% growth in revenue results largely from increased marketing expenditure in the period under review, although revenue in Q3/2015 came in at EUR 12.0 million and was therefore slightly lower than in the prior year period (Q3/2014: EUR 12.4 million). Marketing expenditure amounted to EUR 11.6 million in the period January to September 2015 compared to EUR 9.3 million in the same period of the previous year. Marketing expenditure in the third quarter of 2015 grew to EUR 4.0 million, an increase of 50% compared to the same period last year (Q3/2014: EUR 2.6 million).

Development of earnings
Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) increased significantly in the first 9 months of the current financial year, due to the increase in revenue, to EUR 13.9 million in (9 months 2014: EUR 8.5 million), an increase of 63% compared to previous year. EBITDA for the third quarter of 2015 increased to EUR 4.3 million (Q3/2014: EUR 3.4 million).
In the period January to September 2015 CLIQ Digital realised net earnings of EUR 1.2 million (9 months 2014: EUR 0.9 million). Net earnings for the third quarter of 2015 amounted to EUR 0.3 million (Q3/2014: EUR 0.3 million). Cumulative earnings per share (EPS undiluted) for the first nine months of 2015 stood at EUR 0.19.

Development of KPI’s
ARPU (the average net revenue per user in the first 6 months) exceeded expectations, increasing from EUR 5.91 in the 2014 financial year to EUR 10.32 in the first 9 months of 2015. CPA (the cost per acquisition) registered also an increase to EUR 7.49 in the first 9 months of 2015 compared to EUR 4.37 in the 2014 financial year. The ratio of ARPU to CPA, one of the most determining factors for the profitability of the new acquired customer, improved from 1.35 in the full year 2014 to 1.38 during the first 9 months of 2015. In the first nine month of 2015 the customer base value, an important figure for estimating expected cash inflow on the basis of the current customer base, increased from EUR 15.0 million as of December 31, 2014 to EUR 15.6 million as of September 30, 2015.

Outlook 2015
Upon completion of the third quarter of 2015, CLIQ Digital AG announced the renewal of its financing agreement with Commerzbank. The renewed loan agreement combined with a new overdraft facility at attractive conditions gives the company the financial flexibility to follow its growth strategy.
The Management Board of CLIQ Digital AG comments on the current business development: “The figures in the first 9 months of the current financial year show that CLIQ Digital is on the right path to further expand its customer acquisition. We expect the fourth quarter, which is traditionally the strongest, to give us another boost”. Therefore, Management confirms its guidance for 2015 and expects a clear double digit growth in revenue.

The 9-months figures have not been audited.

CLIQ Digital AG: Strong first half of the year lays basis for successful 2015 financial year

– Revenue climbs 33.5 % in the first half of 2015 to EUR 29.3 million (H1 2014: EUR 22.0 million)
– EBITDA increases at a faster rate to EUR 9.6 million (H1 2014: EUR 5.0 million)
– Forecast for 2015 confirmed: double-digit percentage growth in revenue compared to previous year

 

Düsseldorf, August 10, 2015 – CLIQ Digital AG (ISIN DE000A0HHJR3, WKN A0HHJR), a leading provider of games, apps, entertainment and software for smartphones, feature phones, tablets and desktops, has today announced its financial figures for the first half of 2015. The company’s increased marketing expenditure has resulted in significant growth in revenue and earnings compared to the first half of 2014.

 

Development in revenue

In the period under review, CLIQ Digital AG generated revenue of EUR 29.3 million compared to EUR 22.0 million in the first half of 2014. This 33.5 % growth in revenue results largely from increased marketing expenditure in the first months of 2015, although revenue in Q2 2015 came in at EUR 11.3 million and was therefore lower than in the prior year period (Q2 2014: EUR 12.1 million). Marketing expenditure in the first half of 2015 amounted to EUR 7.7 million compared to EUR 6.7 million in the same period of the previous year.

 

Development of earnings

Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) improved in the first six months of the current financial year due to the increase in revenue to EUR 9.6 million in (H1 2014: EUR 5.0 million).

Depreciations, amortization and impairment charges increased from EUR 4.2 million in H1 2014 to EUR 7.7 million in H1 2015. Most of the increase is caused by the increased amortization on the customer acquisition costs. These costs are being capitalized since January 1, 2014.

Because of the tax-rate mix of the different countries in the CLIQ Digital Group, the effective tax-rate in H1 2015 was 37%, compared to 33% in H1 2014.

In the first half of 2015 net profit increased to EUR 0.93 million (H1 2014: EUR 0.62 million).

 

Development of KPI’s

ARPU (the average net revenue per user in the first six months) developed positively in the first six months, increasing from EUR 5.91 in the 2014 financial year to EUR 9.32 and thus considerably exceeding expectations. CPA (the cost per acquisition) registered also an increase to EUR 6.80 in the first half of 2015 compared to EUR 4.37 in the 2014 financial year. The ratio of ARPU to CPA, one of the most determining factors for the profitability of the new acquired customer, improved from 1.35 in the full year 2014 to 1.37 during the first half of 2015. In the first half of 2015 the customer base value, an important figure for estimating expected cash inflow on the basis of the current customer base, increased from EUR 15.0 million as of December 31, 2014 to EUR 15.5 million as of June 30, 2015.

 

Outlook for 2015

The CLIQ Digital Group has raised its marketing expenditure in the first half of 2015 and will continue intensifying its marketing activities over the remaining course of the year. For the 2015 financial year, the Management Board continues to expect a double-digit growth in revenue compared to the previous year.

In April 2015, CLIQ Digital AG informed its shareholders that the Mexican mobile service provider Telcel had removed the service provider used by CLIQ Digital from its network. It was therefore not possible to provide services to the network operator’s customers in the second quarter of 2015. The Management Board is trying to resolve the situation by looking at alternative sales opportunities to minimise the financial impact.

To further increase the transparency and to strengthen the confidence of the shareholders in the CLIQ Digital AG, the Management Board has decided to bring forward the publication of the half-year report to August 10, 2015 (originally scheduled for release on August 20, 2015).

The half-year figures have not been audited. The complete half-year report 2015 of the CLIQ Digital AG is now available in English for download under http://www.cliqdigital.com/front-IR/annual-reports/.

CLIQ Digital AG: significant growth in revenue and earnings in the first quarter of 2015

– Revenue rises considerably to EUR 18.0 million (Q1 2014: EUR 9.9 million/Q4 2014: EUR 12.9 million)
– EBITDA improves to EUR 5.9 million (Q1 2014: EUR 0.4 million/Q4 2014: EUR 3.1 million)
– Forecast for 2015 confirmed: double-digit percentage growth in revenue compared to previous year

Düsseldorf, 21 May 2015 – CLIQ Digital AG (ISIN DE000A0HHJR3, WKN A0HHJR), a leading provider of games, apps, software and entertainment for smartphones, tablets and desktops, has today announced its financial figures for the first quarter of 2015. The company’s increased marketing spend has resulted in significant growth in revenue and earnings compared to the comparable quarters of the previous year.

Development in revenue
In the period under review, CLIQ Digital AG generated revenue of EUR 18.0 million compared to EUR 9.9 million in the same period of the previous year. This corresponds to a rise of around 82% against the first quarter of 2014 and of around 40% compared to the fourth quarter of 2014 (EUR 12.9 million). This growth in revenue largely results from increased marketing spend in the last quarter of 2014 and the first quarter of 2015. Marketing spend in the reporting period amounted to EUR 4.7 million compared to EUR 3.3 million in the same period of the previous year. In the first quarter of 2015, marketing spend rose by around 9% compared to the fourth quarter of 2014.

Development of earnings
In the period under review, EBITDA amounted to EUR 5.9 million (Q1 2014: EUR 0.4 million/Q4 2014: EUR 3.1 million). Net profit in the first three months of the current financial year amounted to EUR 0.6 million (Q1 2014: EUR 0.1 million/Q4 2014: EUR 0.1 million).

Following a change in accounting estimates in 2014, the marketing costs for customer acquisition have been accounted for as an intangible asset and amortised over the customer’s revenue lifecycle. As a side effect, marketing spend is better assigned, in terms of timing, to the revenue that results from it. For this reason, a comparison of EBITDA and net profit with the same quarter of the previous year (Q1 2014) is only partially informative.

In April 2015, CLIQ Digital AG informed its shareholders that the Mexican mobile service provider Telcel had disconnected the technical service provider used by CLIQ Digital from its network. It is therefore not possible to provide services to the network operator’s customers at present. In order to come to a clarification of the situation the Management Board is also making use of their rights to audit the books of the technical service provider. An impairment loss was expensed for the intangible asset “customer acquisition” accordingly by the company in the quarterly financial statements to 31 March 2015 in order to take account of this situation. This had a negative effect of EUR 0.4 million on the net result for the first quarter of 2015.

Outlook for 2015
The CLIQ Digital Group has raised its marketing spend considerably in the first quarter. CLIQ Digital AG will intensify its marketing activities further in the current financial year, although due to the unsettled situation in Mexico, this will not result in an increase in revenue in the second quarter. Nevertheless, the Management Board confirms its forecast for the 2015 financial year. Driven by a double-digit rise in sales, CLIQ Digital anticipates double-digit percentage growth in revenue compared to the previous year.

CLIQ Digital AG publishes audited consolidated figures for 2014

  • – Total annual revenue at EUR 47.3 million (previous year: EUR 51.8 million)
  • – EBITDA increased by 91.7 percent to EUR 11.5 million (previous year: EUR 6.0 million)
  • – Forecast 2015: double-digit increase in sales and double-digit growth in revenue expected

 

Düsseldorf, April 21, 2015 – Die CLIQ Digital AG (ISIN DE000A0HHJR3, WKN A0HHJR), a leading provider of games, apps, software and entertainment for smartphones, tablets and desktops, has today announced its audited consolidated financial results for the fiscal year 2014.

Development in revenue

In 2014, the company generated revenue of EUR 47.3 million (previous year: EUR 51.8 million). Lower marketing spend in the final quarter of 2013 led to a temporary decline in revenue in the first half of 2014. An increase in marketing spend in the first half of 2014 not only halted this decline in revenue, but also had resulted in a quarter over quarter increasing revenues since the beginning of 2014. In the fourth quarter of 2014, revenue increased compared to the previous quarter (Q3 2014: EUR 12.4 million) as well as against the fourth quarter of 2013 (Q4 2013: EUR 9.4 million) to EUR 12.9 million.

Development of earnings

Marketing spend increased by 9 percent in the 2014 financial year compared to the previous year. Following changes in accounting estimates in 2014, marketing spend for customer acquisition is recognised as an intangible asset and amortised over the useful life of the customer relationship. As a result, marketing spend is better assigned, in terms of timing, to the revenue that results from it. Due to higher-margin marketing campaigns, the restructuring of debt and optimisation of the Group’s structure as well as the changes in accounting estimates, EBITDA rose by 91.7 percent to EUR 11.5 million in 2014 (previous year: EUR 6.0 million). In the fourth quarter of 2014 EBITDA amounted to EUR 3.1 million (Q4 2013: EUR 0.5 million).

In the past financial year net profit amounted to EUR 1.0 million (previous year: EUR 1.0 million) and not EUR 1.9 million as originally stated when the preliminary figures were published on 23 March 2015.In March 2015, the Company was informed, that CLIQ Digital’s technical service provider in Mexico was disconnected by leading mobile operator Telcel. Consequently CLIQ Digital is no longer able to provide services to Telcel’s customers. The Management Board seeks clarification for the situation and examines alternative opportunities for providing services in Mexico. However, since the Management Board cannot oversee whether the technical service provider in Mexico will be re-connected, the decision was taken to set an impairment loss on the full marketing asset related to the customer acquisition in 2014 in Mexico, with a negative effect on Net Income for 2014 of EUR 0.8 million.

Balance sheet

CLIQ Digital AG’s equity amounted to EUR 39.2 million as of 31 December 2014 (previous year: EUR 35.8 million), while its share capital was EUR 6,188,714.00 (previous year: EUR 4,445,699.00).

 

Outlook for 2015

The reorganisation of financing and capital measures implemented in the fourth quarter of 2014 substantially increased the company’s financial strengths. In the year under review, CLIQ Digital also optimised its corporate structures significantly, reducing the number of companies in the Group from 30 to 16 including CLIQ Digital AG. The Group created a solid foundation for sustainable profitable growth. The Management Board is now in a position to focus fully on its core business. The CLIQ Digital Group already began to intensify its marketing activities considerably in the fourth quarter of 2014. In the current financial year, the company plans a further increase of its marketing spend. As a result, CLIQ Digital expects a double-digit increase in sales as well as double-digit growth in revenue compared to previous year.

CLIQ Digital AG: Adjustment of its preliminary results published on 23 February 2015 due to post balance sheet date event (December 31, 2014)

 
– Revenue and EBITDA 2014 unaffected
– Negative effect on Net Income 2014 EUR 0.8 million.
– Delay of publishing the final annual accounts with 8 days
– Positive start into financial year 2015: increase in revenues expected

Düsseldorf, April 13, 2015 – CLIQ Digital AG (ISIN DE000A0HHJR3, WKN A0HHJR), a leading provider of games, apps, software and entertainment for smartphones, tablets and desktops, has today announced that her technical service provider in Mexico was disconnected by leading mobile operator Telcel. Consequently CLIQ Digital is no longer able to provide its customers with services in Mexico. The separation of the technical service provider was done entirely unexpected for all customers of the service provider. The Management Board seeks to clarify the current situation and examines alternative sales opportunities.

Although the auditors of CLIQ Digital AG were about to finalize their audit work on 2014 financials, this event (after balance sheet date) could not be ignored. Since the Management Board cannot oversee whether the technical service provider in Mexico will be re-connected, the decision was taken to set an impairment loss on the full marketing asset related to the customer acquisition in 2014 in Mexico. The negative effect on Net Income for 2014, compared to the preliminary figures communicated on 23/2/2015, is expected to be EUR 0.8 million. Therefore, the expected net profit in the past financial year amounts to EUR 1.0 million (previous year: EUR 1.0 million). Revenue and EBITDA figures for 2014 remain unaffected from this event. According to preliminary figures CLIQ Digital generated revenues of EUR 47.3 million (2013: EUR 51.8 million), EBITA increased by 91.7% to EUR 11.5 million (2013: EUR 6.0 million). The auditors are currently reviewing the adjusted accounts 2014.

The disconnection of the technical facilitator will also have an impact on the 2015 figures. CLIQ Digital strives to publish the 1st quarter 2015 figures sooner than the originally scheduled date May 21, 2015 in order to inform the market about the financial impact of the disconnection. Despite the negative development on the Mexican market CLIQ Digital expects to increase its revenues in the first quarter of 2015 compared to the previous quarter.

Due to this unexpected event, the publication of the annual final figures for the 2014 financial year and further information on guidance for 2015 with its full 2014 annual report is delayed from 13 April 2015 to 21 April 2015.

CLIQ Digital AG publishes preliminary figures for 2014: Significant boost in profitability

 

– Revenue increase continues in Q4 2014
– Total revenue for year of EUR 47.3 million (previous year: EUR 51.8 million)
– EBITDA growth of 91.7% to EUR 11.5 million (previous year: EUR 6.0 million)
– Profitability of the CLIQ Digital Group significantly enhanced: net profit rises to EUR 1.9 million (previous year: EUR 1.0 million)

 

Düsseldorf, 23 February 2015 – CLIQ Digital AG (ISIN DE000A0HHJR3, WKN A0HHJR), a leading provider of games, apps, software and entertainment for smartphones, tablets and desktops, has today announced its preliminary results for the 2014 financial year. In the reporting period the company generated revenue of EUR 47.3 million (previous year: EUR 51.8 million). The decline in revenue for 2014 as a whole compared to 2013 is essentially due to lower marketing spending in the second half of 2013. In the fourth quarter of 2014 CLIQ Digital AG increased its revenue versus the previous quarter as well as versus the fourth quarter of 2013 to EUR 12.9 million (Q3 2014: EUR 12.4 million; Q4 2013: EUR 9.4 million).
 

Marketing expenditure increased significantly in the 2014 financial year compared to the 2013 financial year. Following a change in accounting estimate, the costs for customer acquisition have been accounted for as an intangible asset and amortised over the useful life of the customer of 18 months. As a result, marketing expenses are better assigned, in terms of timing, to the revenue that results from them. In light of the change in accounting estimates EBITDA improved significantly in the 2014 financial year. EBITDA rose by 91.7% to EUR 11.5 million (previous year: EUR 6.0 million). In the fourth quarter of 2014 EBITDA amounted to EUR 3.1 million (Q4 2013: EUR 0.5 million). According to preliminary figures, the net profit in the past financial year was EUR 1.9 million (previous year: EUR 1.0 million). The net profit in the fourth quarter of 2014 amounted to EUR 0.9 million (Q4 2013: EUR 0.6 million).
 

The Management Board of CLIQ Digital AG is pleased with this business performance: “Despite consolidated revenue falling short of the original forecast for the 2014 financial year, we had a strong final quarter (higher than the adjusted forecast) and significantly raised our profitability thanks to higher-margin marketing campaigns. In the past financial year we expanded our leading market positioning as reseller for a series of premium security products for mobile devices. Our strategy of internationalisation is also beginning to pay off; in particular in North America (including Mid America) growth was stronger than expected in 2014. Thanks to the optimisation of our corporate structure and the strengthening of our financial situation by restructuring our debt, we have created a solid foundation for a lasting return to profitable growth. The intensification of our marketing activities, which we already began in the fourth quarter of 2014, will make a significant contribution towards this”.

The figures shown in this Corporate News are preliminary and unaudited. CLIQ Digital AG will publish the final figures for the 2014 financial year and further information on guidance for 2015 with its full 2014 annual report on 13 April 2015.

In the third quarter, the company generated an EBITDA of EUR 3.4 million (Q3 2013: EUR 1.1 million).

Revenues of the CLIQ Digital group showed a further increase in the third quarter of 2014 compared to the previous two quarters and was with EUR 12.4 million for the first time this year above the previous year (Q3 2013: EUR 11.9 million). In the period January to September 2014, the company generated revenues of EUR 34.4 million (9 months 2013: EUR 42.4 million). Reduced marketing expenses in the second half of 2013 led to a temporary decline in revenues in the first half of 2014, which has now been stopped in the third quarter.

In the first nine months of the current fiscal year CLIQ Digital realised net earnings of EUR 0.9 million (9 months 2013: EUR 1.9 million / fiscal year 2013: EUR 1.1 million).

Cumulative earnings per share (EPS undiluted) for the first nine months of 2014 stood at EUR 0.21 (9 months 2013: EUR 0.46 / fiscal year 2013: EUR 0.25). Taking the October 2014 capital increase into account the EPS amounts to EUR 0.16.

Upon completion of the third quarter of 2014, CLIQ Digital AG successfully placed a capital increase and convertible bonds with total gross proceeds of approximately EUR 2.6 million. A significant part of the gross proceeds was used to reduce the company’s liabilities.

After the end of the third quarter of 2014 the Supervisory Board also agreed to a settlement agreement resulting in a repayment of the vendor loans and loans of existing shareholders.

Ben Bos, member of the Management Board of CLIQ Digital AG, comments on the current business development: “The fact that we were able to report further revenue growth and earnings in the traditionally weaker third quarter shows that our strategy is working. With the remaining proceeds from the capital measures, we will fund additional marketing activities to further accelerate our customer growth. I am convinced that after completion of the reorganization of our financing we can now return to sustainable growth. For this reason, I have increased my stake in CLIQ Digital AG in connection with the capital increase and on the market by a further 67,000 shares. ”

Cliq Digital AG reports preliminary figures for the first six months of 2014

* H1/2014 revenues of EUR 22.0 million (H1/2013: EUR 30.5 million)
* Q2/2014 revenues up 22% against Q1/2014 to EUR 12.1 million
* H1/2014 EBITDA of EUR 5.1 million (H1/2013: EUR 4.7 million)
* Net earnings of EUR 0.6 million (H1/2013: EUR 1.4 million)

Dusseldorf, August 21, 2014 – Cliq Digital AG, a leading provider of mobile games, apps, software and entertainment, reports the preliminary results for the first six months of the 2014 financial year. EBITDA (earnings before interests, taxes, depreciation and amortization) as a key performance indicator of the company increased to EUR 5.1 million in the first half 2014 (H1/2013: EUR 4.7 million).

Net earnings amounted to EUR 0.6 million in H1/2014 (H1/2013: EUR 1.4 million). Second quarter earnings (Q2/2014: EUR 0.5 million) showed a strong improvement in comparison to the first three months (Q1/2014: EUR 0.1 million), driven by the higher revenues and also lowered overhead costs.

Revenues recovered during the second quarter in comparison to the first three months 2014, positively affected by higher first quarter marketing spending. Second quarter revenues came in at EUR 12.1 million, an increase of 22% quarter-on-quarter (Q1/2014: EUR 9.9 million). Therefore revenues reached EUR 22.0 million in the first half year 2014, compared to EUR 30.5 million in the same period of 2013. The decline in H1/2014 revenues is mainly due to lower marketing spending in the second half of 2013. Management continues to be relatively optimistic for the full year 2014 and to reach its objectives with regards to stable EBITDA level in comparison to last year (taking into consideration the change in accounting estimate described below).

Change in accounting estimate

Due to a significant improvement and harmonization in Cliq Digital’s Business Intelligence (BI) system, which was accomplished this year, the Group is in a position to precisely determine the useful life of a customer acquired from its marketing partners. As a consequence, the costs for the acquisition of its customers qualify as an intangible asset under IAS 38. The costs for customer acquisition have been accounted for as intangible assets and are depreciated over the customer’s life-cycle, usually between 12 and 24 months. Therefore amortization of intangible assets has also risen significantly. Net Intangibles for this specific customer acquisition amounted to approx. EUR 3.3 million for the six months ended June 30, 2014.

The half-year financial statements and the interim management report 2014 will be published at the end of September 2014 and will be available on www.cliqdigital.com.

  • 17 Jun 2014

Cliq Digital AG publishes Annual Report 2013

* EBITDA of EUR 6.0 million, net earnings of EUR 1.0 million
* Final results burdened by additional provisions for legacy issues, as already announced earlier, of about EUR 1.0 million
* Guidance 2014 with expected growth in revenues

Dusseldorf, June 17, 2014 – Cliq Digital AG, a leading provider of mobile games, apps, software and entertainment, today publishes its Annual Report 2013 with the final audited consolidated financial statements according to IFRS. Accordingly, gross revenues amounted to EUR 51.8 million (2012: EUR 66.2 milion), EBITDA (earnings before interests, taxes, depreciation and amortization) came in at EUR 6.0 million (2012: EUR 8.5 million), EBIT (earnings before interests and taxes) stood at EUR 2.0 million (2012: EUR -1.8 million). Net earnings increased to EUR 1.0 million (2012: EUR -3.6 million).

The deviation of the final results from the reported preliminary figures is due to provisions for legacy issues, which have been included in the annual financial statements 2013. A provision for the estimated risk for the tax audit and a fine from the Greek telecom regulators (Bob Mobile 2007-2011) have been taken into account. Both issues were announced in the publication of the preliminary figures on April 3, 2014, as a potential burden of the 2013 results and have a final impact of about EUR 1.0 million on the final results 2013.

Outlook 2014

The reorganization of the financing, including a lower monthly redemption on the term loan and a notable reduction of the administrative expenses, have increased the available funds for marketing. By increasing its marketing spend, CLIQ expects to increase the number of sales in 2014 financial year. As a result the company expects a double-digit growth in revenues. The higher marketing investments will result in EBITDA only growing in the next year.

The Annual Report 2013 is available for download at www.cliqdigital.com in the course of the day.

Cliq Digital AG reports results for 1st quarter of 2014 financial year

– Q1 revenues of EUR 9.9 million
– Q1 EBITDA of EUR 397k, positive net earnings of EUR 124k
– Successful reorganization of financing
– Subscriptions increased by 30% in Q1 2014 compared to Q4 2013

Dusseldorf, May 21, 2014 – Cliq Digital AG, a leading provider of mobile games, apps, software and entertainment, reports its financial figures for the first quarter of 2014 financial year. Group revenues amounted to EUR 9.9 million (Q1 2013: EUR 14.6 million). Overhead is further reduced by 20% (Q1 2013: EUR 2.5 million vs. Q1 2014: EUR 2.0 million). EBITDA (earnings before interests, taxes, depreciation and amortization) reached EUR 397k (Q1 2013: EUR 2.5 million). Net earnings came in at EUR 124k (Q1 2013: EUR 674k).

First quarter 2014 showed a strong upward trend in marketing spend in comparison to previous fourth quarter 2013. To normalize this effect the company decided to change the accounting policy on how to account for marketing spend. By this, the marketing costs are more aligned with the future revenue. Due to the stronger marketing spend, subscriptions increased by about 30% to 1.3 million (Q4 2013: 1.0 million).

The new financing agreement with Commerzbank was concluded at the End of March. With effect from April 2014 onwards, monthly redemption for the term loan has been lowered from EUR 750,000 to EUR 187,500. The company realized a one time positive effect on its financing structure (bank debt) of EUR 0.5 million after deduction of costs related to the new financing agreement.

Cliq Digital AG releases preliminary figures for 2013 financial year

– Revenues of EUR 51 million and EBITDA of EUR 6.8 million

– Net income turned positive to EUR 2.0 million, before possible legacy issues

– Successful reorganization of financing in first Quarter 2014

Dusseldorf, April 3, 2014 – Cliq Digital AG, a leading provider of mobile games, apps, software and entertainment, announces its preliminary figures for the 2013 financial year. The EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization) as the main performance indicator is expected at EUR 6.8 million (2012: EUR 8.5 million). Full year revenues will amount to EUR 51 million (2012: EUR 66.2 million).

Marketing activities were reduced due to less organic growth. Furthermore revenues were hit by new regulations or disruption in some countries (UK, Singapore and Spain), and not being able to enter the US market due to new regulations. Additionally the divestment of the online browser games division caused a reduction in revenue of EUR 2.7 million. Low financial flexibility because of the repayment obligations of the term loan with ABN AMRO caused further delays in the organic as well as non-organic growth of the company and lead to reduced marketing activities.

In 2013 financial year net income turned positive to EUR 2.0 million (2012: net loss of EUR 3.6 million). These results were slightly below the adjusted guidance with re-forecasted revenues of EUR 53 million and a net income of EUR 2.3 million. This was mainly caused by the above mentioned limited funds for marketing.

Currently a general tax audit is conducted by the German tax auditors regarding the business years 2007 to 2011 (former Bob Mobile AG and its subsidiaries). A possible additional provision has to be made on a Greek fine out of 2011, related to a former subsidiary in Greece. Both outcomes are not yet foreseeable, but can still have a substantial extraordinary effect on the above mentioned net results for 2013. We foresee the organization can leave this legacy behind and concentrate on the future once these issues are finally cleared.

New financing agreement

During the first quarter of 2014 Cliq Digital reorganized its financing resulting in an agreement with Commerzbank replacing ABN AMRO Bank as new house bank. The term loan and the credit facility of ABN AMRO have been fully repaid by new financing of Commerzbank. In this context monthly redemption has been lowered from EUR 750,000 (ABN AMRO) to EUR 187,500 with Commerzbank.

Cliq Digital AG reports preliminary Q3 results 2013

– Positive net earnings of EUR 0.5 million in Q3, net revenues declined by EUR 1.3 million q-o-q
– Games represent already 30% of the revenue mix, what is above expectations
– Good progress is made on implementation of new product lines apps and software
– Change in guidance: net earnings 2013 re-forecasted at EUR 2.3 million (previously EUR 3.0 million)

Dusseldorf, November 21, 2013 – Cliq Digital, a leading provider of mobile games, apps, software and entertainment, today announces preliminary results for the first nine months of 2013 financial year. The Group achieved net earnings of EUR 1.9 million (9M 2012: EUR -3.4 million) and gross revenues of EUR 42.4 million (9M 2012: EUR 52.5 million) during the first nine months 2013. Q3 net result amounted to EUR 0.5 million. Net earnings have the tendency to be lower during the third quarter but were especially hit by the lower net revenues (EUR -1.3 million q-o-q) realized. Those were affected by changes in regulations especially in the UK, Spain and Singapore and more in general by the country mix during the third quarter. This situation will last also during the greater part of Q4, however is not expected ongoing afterwards. Without this negative effect the revenue would have come in at the same level as Q2 whereby the net result would have been even higher. Cumulative earnings per share (EPS undiluted) stood at EUR 0.46; taken the October capital increase in consideration the EPS is EUR 0.43.

CLIQ’s renewed strategy, presented end of March this year, is purely concentrated on the mobile business. Within the four product pillars: entertainment, mobile games, apps and software, CLIQ intensified the business for smartphones. The mobile games product portfolio currently contributes 30% of the revenues generated.

In the last two product pillars apps and software CLIQ has implemented products ready to market. Appsdorado and play2win, both (all you can eat) app products have shown good test results. After further optimizations the company will launch these products in the UK, Spain, Germany and Poland by the end of November. Flirtease, CLIQ’s dating app, will also be live in the App stores of Apple and Google for the US by the end of the year. Concerning the software pillar CLIQ has seen good results on the G-Data product (mobile security) by selling 40.000 packages in two-month time. Furthermore, as previously announced, CLIQ will start selling Kaspersky security software for Android mobile phones during December.

Cliq Ditgital foresees somewhat lower revenues for Q4; however stabilized net earnings during the same period. As a result the company expects net earnings of EUR 2.3 million (previously EUR 3.0 million) and gross revenue of approx. EUR 53 million for the full year 2013 (previously EUR 70 million). The change in outlook/ guidance is mainly caused by less organic growth (activities in existing countries and delay in entering new markets) and not realizing some minor acquisitions and smart partnerships. The latter are generally subject to certain risks with respect to their implementation period. CLIQ has already put a lot of effort on identified clear targets with revenues around EUR 15 million annually; however the management does not expect those being realized this year. Cliq Digital is currently investigating attracting further finance facilities in order to have the necessary liquidity in place to grow the business via small acquisitions and partly use it for the redemption of the current term-loan.

The Cliq Digital management remains committed and confident to the Mobile focused strategy and will continue to invest in growth, in both existing and new markets.

All figures in this Corporate News are unaudited. 2012 figures are on pro forma basis. Compared to IFRS figures reported in annual report 2012, herein the Cliq B.V. is consolidated since February 2012.

Cliq Digital AG reports results for H1/2013

– Positive net earnings of EUR 1.4 million in H1/2013 (H1/2012: EUR -3.2
million)
– H1 revenues of EUR 30.5 million compared to EUR 37.2 million in H1/2012
– Q2 revenues +8.9% compared to Q1
– EBITDA of EUR 4.7 million during first six months 2013 (H1/2012: EUR 5.2
million)

Dusseldorf, August 21, 2013 – Cliq Digital, a leading provider of mobile
games, apps, software and entertainment, today announces preliminary
results for the first six months of 2013 financial year. The Group achieved
highly improved net earnings of EUR 1.4 million during the first six months
2013 (H1/2012: EUR -3.2 million). Q2 net result amounted to EUR 768
thousand (+15.7% compared to Q1). Net earnings especially benefitted from
significantly lower scheduled amortization on intangible assets and the
absence of merger costs. Earnings per share (EPS undiluted) came in at EUR
0.36; Q2 EPS reached EUR 0.19.

Cliq Digital generated total revenues of EUR 30.5 million from January to
June (H1/2012: EUR 37.2 million). The former ‘Bob Mobile activities’, were
responsible for more than 80% percent of the downturn in revenues (compared
to the first half of 2012). Nevertheless, the second quarter 2013 showed
increased revenues for Cliq Digital compared to the previous quarter of EUR
15.9 million (Q1/2013: EUR 14.6 million, +8.9%).

EBITDA (earnings before interests, taxes, depreciation and amortization)
came in at EUR 4.7 million in H1/2013 (H1/2012: EUR 5.2 million including
EUR 1.1 million merger costs). Besides the lower revenues, also higher
direct costs caused by a different country mix with higher shares for
operator, gateway and content costs, had a dampening effect on the EBITDA.
Due to this lower EBITDA and the increased revenue Cliq Digital is
concentrating on improving the liquidity situation with respect to the
redemption payments on the term loan. A positive factor is the
significantly reduced operational expenditures. In this context personnel
costs were lowered to EUR 3.3 million (H1/2012: EUR 4.2 million); total
OPEX savings add up to EUR 1.3 million during the first six months 2013.

Luc Voncken, CEO of Cliq Digital, comments on the half year results: ‘CLIQ
is generating good net results especially since the balance sheet impacts
of the Cliq B.V. acquisition are ceasing. The increased revenues in the
second quarter compared to the previous are encouraging, particularly
because sales related to former Bob Mobile business were rapidly declining.
Nevertheless market environment remains challenging and thus we should not
be over enthusiastic. We see the roll out of our new markets taking more
time and tougher regulations in existing countries. On the other hand
especially in those regulated markets higher margins can be reached.’

Luc Voncken continues: ‘I am confident we can compensate those negative
effects in the coming years with our growing smartphone business. The
acquisition of Grumbl Media, announced last week, is an important step on
the way to gather leading knowhow for the monetization of smartphones
within the CLIQ group.’

In the 2013 financial year Cliq Digital expects to reach revenues of EUR 70
million and an EBITDA of approximately EUR 11.5 million and further
reducing of the debt. The negative net effect on the result of the
amortization on the customer base will be reduced to EUR 2.2 million in
2013. CLIQ expects a positive net result of approx. EUR 3.0 million in
2013. The company still expects to realize organic growth through
activities in existing countries, by entering new markets and by
introducing new products for mobile devices however it will be challenging.
The guidance includes some minor acquisition opportunities as well as new
smart partnerships, although these are generally subject to certain risks
with respect to their implementation period.

All figures in this Corporate News are unaudited. 2012 figures are on pro
forma basis. Compared to IFRS figures reported in annual report 2012,
herein the Cliq B.V. is consolidated since January 2012.

The semi-annual accounts statement 2013 will be published in the upcoming
four weeks and will be made available for download at
www.cliqdigital.com/investors.

(Grumblmedia.com), consists of monetizing possibilities in the following
segments: Behavioral CRM, AD Optimization, Sponsored signup and billing.

Cliq Digital AG publishes 2012 Annual Report

– Pro forma revenues for full year 2012 EUR 69 million and an operative
EBITDA of EUR 11 million (in accordance with the preliminary published
figures)
– Net result at EUR -3.6 million mainly due to amortizations on customer
base and a positive operational cash flow of EUR 7.2 million
– 2013 guidance with expected EBITDA of EUR 11.5 million and expected net
result of EUR 3.0 million

Dusseldorf, July 1, 2013 – Cliq Digital AG, a leading provider of mobile
games, apps, software and entertainment content, has published its Annual
Report 2012 and the audited group consolidated financial statements, in
accordance with the announced preliminary pro forma figures.

On February 21, 2013 we announced a preliminary pro forma operative EBITDA
of EUR 11 million. In accordance with IFRS, Cliq B.V. is consolidated for
eleven months from February to December 2012. Excluding the EBITDA of Cliq
B.V. in January 2012 of EUR 0.9 million it is in line with the final EBITDA
of EUR 8.5 million, taking into account EUR 1.6 million one-off costs.
Reported preliminary pro forma revenues amounted to EUR 69 million, which
includes the revenues of Cliq B.V. in January 2012 of EUR 3 million.

The revenues stated in the annual report amounted to EUR 66 million in 2012
which is an increase of 89% over the previous year. Amortizations on the
Cliq B.V. customer database, with a negative net impact of EUR 6.1 million,
led to a negative net result of EUR -3.6 million. The amortizations
significantly lowered in the course of 2012 resulting in a positive net
result of EUR 0.4 million in the fourth quarter. Operational cash flow for
2012 amounted up to EUR 7.2 million.

Luc Voncken, CEO of Cliq Digital, explains: ‘Most of the expected
advantages, which were major reasons for our merger with Cliq B.V. have
already proven to be essential for the company. We can even say that
without the merger the company would have faced challenging times. By Bob
doing the merger with Cliq B.V. the internationalization of sales made a
big step forward. The better risk distribution has mitigated the revenue
declines in some countries by growing on other international – especially
non-European – markets.’

In the 2013 financial year Cliq Digital expects to reach revenues of EUR 70
million and an EBITDA of approximately EUR 11.5 million and further
reducing of the debt. The negative net effect on the result of the
amortization on the customer base will be reduced to EUR 2.2 million in
2013. CLIQ expects a positive net result of approx. EUR 3.0 million in
2013. The company is well positioned to realize organic growth through
activities in existing countries, by entering new markets and by
introducing new products for mobile devices. The guidance includes some
minor acquisition opportunities as well as new smart partnerships, although
these are generally subject to certain risks with respect to their
implementation period.

Cliq Digital AG reports preliminary results for Q1 2013

– Q1 revenues of EUR 14.6 million
– Q1 EBITDA of EUR 2.5 million
– Positive net earnings already show impact of adjusted strategy
– Debt reduced and term loan with ABN AMRO renegotiated

Dusseldorf, May 21, 2013 – Cliq Digital, a leading provider of mobile
games, apps, software and entertainment content, today announces
preliminary results for the first quarter of 2013 financial year. The group
generated revenues of EUR 14.6 million (Q1 2012: EUR 19.4 million), while
EBITDA (earnings before interests, taxes, depreciation and amortization)
reached EUR 2.5 million (Q1 2012: EUR 3.0 million). The decline in revenues
is mainly due to a strong downturn of the former Bob Mobile business (EUR
-4.3 million). Moreover, the declined revenues show the challenges in the
feature phone business.

Cliq Digital Group’s EBIT (earnings before interests and taxes) benefited
from considerably lower scheduled amortization and amounted to EUR 1.2
million. Net earnings came in at EUR 0.7 million (EPS EUR 0.16) and
exceeded Q4 2012 net earnings of EUR 0.4 million.

In February 2012 Cliq Digital attracted a term loan of EUR 25 million (of
which terms have been recently renegotiated, amongst other a lower monthly
redemption) to finance the takeover of Cliq B.V. By the end of 2012 the
term loan has been reduced to EUR 15 million. The company expects the loan
to be at the level of EUR 6.7 million at the end of 2013.

In 2013, Cliq Digital expects to reach revenues of approx. EUR 70 million
with an EBITDA of EUR 11.5 million and net earnings of approx. EUR 3.0
million. The company is well positioned to realize organic growth through
activities in existing countries, by entering new markets and by
introducing new products for the mobile devices (phones, tablets etc). The
guidance also includes some minor acquisition opportunities as well as new
smart partnerships.

Cliq Digital AG concentrates on mobile business

– Announced withdrawal from online browser games (MMOG) business largely

Dusseldorf, March 12th, 2013 – Cliq Digital AG, a leading mobile provider
of games, apps, software and entertainment content, focuses entirely on its

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

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

– 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.

Cliq Digital AG reports its interim IFRS balance sheet and results as of June 30, 2012 – Second half year shows significantly improved net results

– IFRS figures confirm preliminary results on pro forma basis (operating
EBITDA at EUR 6.3 million)
– Scheduled non-cash depreciation and amortization lead to pro forma net
income of EUR -3.2 million in the first six months 2012
– Depreciation on intangible assets of EUR 7.1 million primarily due to
IFRS
– Strong equity ratio of 42.7% as of June 30, 2012

Dusseldorf, December 3, 2012 – Cliq Digital AG – the former Bob Mobile AG
-, a leading provider of mobile games, apps and entertainment content,
reports its consolidated financial results according to IFRS (International
Financial Reporting Standards) for the first six months of the 2012
financial year. Herein Dutch company Cliq BV is consolidated since February
2012, the month of the closing of the acquisition by former Bob Mobile AG.

On a pro forma basis – consolidating Cliq BV for the six months from
January to June – the operating EBITDA amounted to EUR 6.3 million
(adjusted for restructuring costs and merger costs of EUR 1.1 million).
These figures confirm the preliminary results published in August.

Depreciation and amortization in the first half of 2012 amounted to EUR 7.1
million leading to an EBIT (earnings before interest and taxes) of EUR -1,9
million, financing costs were EUR 0.7 million and tax expenses stood at EUR
0.6 million. Net results thereby came in at
EUR -3.2 million. These figures are again on pro forma basis.

Within the above mentioned depreciation and amortization EUR 6.7 million of
non-cash depreciation on intangible assets (such as the customer database)
have been accounted for. This is an effect of applying IFRS; shown in the
full IFRS figures for the first half year of 2012 which will be published
along with this corporate news today on the homepage of the company
(www.cliqdigital.com).

The development in the second half of the year shows a significant
improvement of the net result, due to a significant lower depreciation on
the customer database (EUR 2.9 million). The company expects net results in
the second half of 2012 between EUR -1.3 million and EUR 0,2 million,
representing the latest operating EBITDA guidance EUR 10.5 million to EUR
12.5 million, which we hereby reconfirm.

Cliq Digitals Chief Executive Officer Luc Voncken comments: ‘With the
preparation of the first consolidated IFRS figures following the
acquisition of Cliq BV we completed the transaction also in terms of
accounting. This is an important step for the further improvement of the
transparency towards the market. I have full confidence in the strategy of
Cliq Digital as a powerful provider of mobile games, apps and entertainment
– as the CEO of the company and also as a major shareholder.’ Grupa Media
Holding II BV, owned by Luc Voncken and his business partners, is holding
40% of the Cliq Digital AG shares.

The group reported equity as of June 30, 2012 of EUR 32.3 million, (the
equity ratio amounts to 42.7%, in relation to total assets). Furthermore,
it recognizes not to be fully aligned with its self imposed financial
covenants, caused primarily due to lowering its EBITDA guidance during the
summer. The company will strive for a balance between a prudent financial
framework and investments in our business. The cash position as of June 30
amounted to EUR 7.6 million.

Following the decision of the annual general meeting in August 2012, the
renaming of Bob Mobile AG into Cliq Digital AG is entered in the commercial
register since November 20, 2012. Likewise, the legal seat was transferred
from Straelen to Dusseldorf.

All figures have not been audited and have not undergone an audit review.

– Third quarter operative EBITDA of EUR 2.7 million

Straelen, November 21, 2012 – During the first nine month of the 2012
financial year, Bob Mobile AG – the future Cliq Digital AG -, a leading

in the upcoming months will occur from ten quality games we have signed to
launch on thumbr. The highly anticipated ‘Dragons vs. Unicorns’ and the
award-winning ‘Skyrise Runner’ are amongst the first games to launch and
will be supported by dedicated Marketing and PR campaigns which focus on
the territories that have proven to be the most profitable.’ In the third
quarter the Premium mobile business launched new countries such as United
Arab Emirates, Qatar, Singapore, Columbia and Hungary. In these countries
the Premium mobile services are now offered via online and mobile marketing
to consumers and do already contribute to revenue and margin. Cliq is in
the sweet spot for mobile games, apps and entertainment on feature- and
smartphones.

financial year will be published by the end of November. All figures have

New management of Bob Mobile concentrates on mobile business and confirms outlook for 2012 financial year

– Fokus liegt auf mobiler Unterhaltung – insbesondere Spiele
– Management bestätigt Prognose für das Geschäftsjahr 2012
– Konsolidierter Halbjahresabschluss gemäß IFRS für Ende November erwartet

Straelen, 7. November 2012 – Der neue Vorstand (CEO) der Bob Mobile AG –
künftig Cliq Digital AG – treibt die Neujustierung des Geschäftsmodells
voran. ‘Wir haben Maßnahmen ergriffen, um die Aufstellung der künftigen
Cliq Digital AG in den attraktivsten Geschäftsfeldern zu verbessern’,
erläutert Luc Voncken, der seit Anfang Oktober das Unternehmen als CEO
leitet. Dazu gehört insbesondere die stärkere Fokussierung der Gruppe auf
den Bereich mobile Unterhaltung (Spiele), während die Aktivitäten im
Online-Segment (Online-PC-Spiele) reduziert werden.

Unabhängig von der Anpassung des Geschäftsmodells bestätigt das neue
Management die Prognose: ‘Wir liegen mit der Anfang September gegebenen
Prognose im Plan. Daher bekräftigen wir unseren Ausblick für das
Geschäftsjahr 2012’, sagt Luc Voncken. Das Unternehmen erwartet Umsätze
zwischen EUR 64 und 74 Mio. und ein bereinigtes Ergebnis vor Zinsen,
Steuern und Abschreibungen (EBITDA) von EUR 10,5 bis 12,5 Mio. Das EBITDA
ist um die Einmalaufwendungen im Zusammenhang mit der Übernahme und
Integration der Cliq B.V. bereinigt.

Die Erstellung des konsolidierten IFRS-Abschlusses der Bob Mobile AG, der
erstmalig die Cliq B.V. konsolidiert, benötigt länger als zunächst
erwartet. Der Vorstand geht davon aus, dass die Anwendung der IFRS Ende
November endgültig abgeschlossen werden kann und der IFRS-Konzernabschluss
für das erste Halbjahr 2012 veröffentlicht wird. Weiterhin wird das
Unternehmen am 21. November 2012, gemäß Finanzkalender, die Kennzahlen für
das dritte Quartal 2012 (auf EBITDA-Level) veröffentlichen.

Die künftige Zusammensetzung des Aufsichtsrats steht unterdessen fest. Dem
Gremium gehören weiterhin Dr. Andreas Hoynigg (Vorsitzender), Cornelis
Herman van der Steenstraten und Karel Gustaaf Tempelaar an. Dr. Andreas
Hoynigg erläutert: ‘Als langjähriger Aufsichtsratsvorsitzender unterstütze
ich Luc Voncken als neuen CEO von Cliq Digital und seine Strategie. Ich bin
darüber hinaus überzeugt, dass unser Unternehmen mit der Fokussierung auf
mobile Unterhaltung erfolgreich sein wird.’

Opinion of the Management Board of Bob Mobile AG concerning the purchase offer submitted by Bigstep Capital Ltd

Straelen, September 28, 2012 – In early September, Bigstep Capital Ltd.,
London, submitted a voluntary public purchase offer to the shareholders of
Bob Mobile AG (in future to be renamed: Cliq Digital AG). The offer runs
until October 1, 2012, and is subject to several conditions. The offer is
not to come into force if acceptance declarations amount to less than 75%
of the outstanding shares of Bob Mobile AG, if the DAX equity index lies
below 6,500 points at the end of the acceptance period, or if Bob Mobile AG
refuses to conduct due diligence concerning the business development of the
2012 financial year. If these conditions are satisfied, Bigstep Capital
Ltd. is offering a purchase price of EUR 7.00 per share, according to the
offer. The full offer was published in the Bundesanzeiger (German Federal
Gazette) on September 7, 2012.

Although Bob Mobile AG has made several attempts to get in contact with the
bidder Bigstep Capital Ltd., no further-reaching discussions have been held
with the bidder. In the opinion of Bob Mobile AG, such discussions comprise
a significant precondition for assessing the offer, and for approval of a
due diligence review which the bidder has formulated as a condition.

Irrespective of this, Bob Mobile AG notes that the average price of Bob
Mobile shares stood at EUR 12.00 in the period between June 5, 2012 and
September 5, 2012, being the period of the three months before the
publication of the offer.

Due to the offer terms, and the lack of preparedness on the part of the
bidder to engage in an exchange of information, Bob Mobile AG is currently
unable to gauge whether the voluntary offer is actually serious. If new
facts emerge, the Management Board of Bob Mobile AG will publish a renewed
opinion.

Bob Mobile AG becomes Cliq Digital AG – Announcement of forecast 2012

– Umsatzerwartung für Geschäftsjahr auf Euro 64 – 74 Mio. aktualisiert
– Bereinigtes EBITDA in Höhe von Euro 10,5 – 12,5 Mio. erwartet
– Namensänderung: Bob Mobile AG firmiert künftig unter Cliq Digital AG

Straelen, 3. September 2012 – Die Bob Mobile AG, ein führender Anbieter von
Games und Mobile Entertainment, gibt heute den aktualisierten Ausblick für
das Geschäftsjahr 2012 bekannt. Demnach erwartet der Vorstand Umsatzerlöse
in Höhe von Euro 64 – 74 Mio. Euro (vormals Euro 95 Mio.). Gleichzeitig
wird ein bereinigtes EBITDA von Euro 10,5 – 12,5 Mio. erwartet (vormals
Euro 18 Mio.). Hierin sind einmalige Aufwendungen für die Übernahme und
Integration der Cliq B.V. in Höhe von rund Euro 1,1 Mio. nicht
berücksichtigt. Grund für die reduzierte Prognose sind die sich deutlich
schlechter als erwartet entwickelnden Absatzmärkte. Insbesondere im
südeuropäischen Raum, etwa in Spanien und Italien, reduzieren sich die
Umsätze und stehen die Margen unter Druck. Darüber hinaus führt die
Verzögerung bei der Einführung der neuen Freemium Technikplattform zu
geringeren Umsatz- und Ergebnisbeiträgen als erwartet. Die Bandbreiten der
Prognosen tragen dem unsicheren wirtschaftlichen Umfeld Rechnung.

Die Gesellschaft treibt die Ausrichtung auf das Freemium Geschäftsmodell
weiter voran, um auch zukünftig gut aufgestellt zu sein. Im Außenauftritt
zeigt sich diese Entwicklung in der Namensänderung der Bob Mobile AG in
Cliq Digital AG, die auf der ordentlichen Hauptversammlung am 24. August
2012 beschlossen wurde. ‘Wir sind davon überzeugt, dass der Name Cliq
Digital AG zu unseren heutigen wie zukünftigen Produkten noch idealer
passt. Während Bob Mobile eng mit den Handys der zweiten Generation
verknüpft war, ist die neue Cliq Digital AG nun plattformübergreifend
online ebenso wie auf Smartphones und Tablets zu Hause’, so der
Vorstandsvorsitzende Remco Westermann. Zudem wurde die Corporate Website
überarbeitet und neu gelauncht: www.cliqdigital.com.

Cliq Digital sieht sich sowohl im Premium Bereich wie auch im Freemium
Bereich hervorragend aufgestellt. Im zweiten Halbjahr 2012 (Juli bis
Dezember 2012) werden insbesondere unter der Marke thumbr viele neue
Produkte gelauncht. Eine weitere Konkretisierung der Geschäftserwartungen
2012 wird im Rahmen des Halbjahresberichts Ende September 2012
bekanntgegeben.

Straelen, August 21, 2012 – Bob Mobile AG, a leading provider of games and

2012: EUR 19.4 million). Operating EBITDA stood at EUR 3.0 million in the
second quarter (Q1 2012: EUR 3.3 million). Including the takeover and
restructuring costs, EBITDA amounted to EUR 2.2 million for the April to
June months (Q1 2012: EUR 3.0 million).

‘Having successfully integrated Cliq and Bob Mobile, we are now
concentrating fully again on the further development of our products and
market positions in the freemium and premium areas. The market environment
has worsened considerably in some countries over the last months – whereby
Bob Mobile’s positioning in currently more than 50 countries has mitigated
the effects,’ commented Remco Westermann, CEO of Bob Mobile AG. ‘Based on
trends in the second quarter and the first few weeks of the second half of
the year, we will publish an update to our FY 2012 forecast before the end
of September. Until then, the application of IFRS in connection with the
Cliq acquisition is completely recognized in income statement and thus a
more accurate forecast of the annual result is possible,’ Remco Westermann
went on to comment.

Having reported EUR 34.9 million of revenue in the first half year, and EUR
9.1 million of operating EBITDA, the premium division is slightly below
prognosis. Pressure on revenue is also evident at the start of the second
half of the year. This is due, firstly, to weak economic growth combined
with lower consumption spending, particularly in Southern Europe. For the
first time, this is having significant negative effects on revenue and
earnings with new and existing customers in these countries. Secondly, the
regulatory environment, especially concerning the billing of premium
services, is intensifying further in some countries. Regulatory changes
were already implemented at the end of the second quarter, and are also
announced for the second half of the year. The company continues to drive
further ahead with its internationalization to offset revenue pressure on
traditional markets. The special focus in this context is on the growth
markets of Africa and South America. Premium services were launched in
Kenya and Columbia in the second quarter.

The strategically important freemium games area, which is currently being
established, generated EUR 1.5 million of revenue in the first half of the
year. This business unit concentrated on optimizing and expanding their
games portfolio in the first half of 2012, and the further development of
the technical platform. In particular, additional features are being
developed to generate revenue along with items sales. With costs in line
with budget, revenue of EUR 1.5 million in the first half-year fell short
of planning, feeding through to EUR -1.4 million of operating EBITDA.

Just A Game GmbH is concentrating on four online games in 2012. The
War2Glory online strategy game, which had already been launched by the end
of 2010, and also the fussballcup.de football manager game which was
published in June 2012, continue to report a positive trend. Delays
occurred to the mobile version of War2Glory, and the Myfarmland online
game, as a result of which they were not launched until the second half
year, thereby delaying revenue growth. In addition, the Call Of Kings
online card game was contractually secured in the third quarter, and is
also set to be launched in the second half of the year. Due to the more
efficient organization, additional games were launched with only a minimal
increase in staff numbers in the case of Just A Game. Just A Game will make
a positive earnings contribution following the revenue growth connected
with the additional games.

The sub-area, mobile freemium games under the thumbr brand, which is still
in the development and establishment phase, made major progress in the
first half of the year. This cross-platform gaming and entertainment portal
licensed nine high-quality mobile games during the first six months of the
financial year 2012. The company also worked intensively on the further
development of the thumbr mobile and online portals, including completing
the thumbr iOS app, and launching the thumbr.com website. In overall terms,
however, thumbr fell short of the company’s own targets due to the
difficulty of securing specialist staff, as a consequence of which
substantial revenue is not expected until the third quarter. The thumbr
technology platform (Software Development Kit SDK) – which serves
independent software developers as the basis for developing their own games
– was completed and actively marketed among developers in the third
quarter. Active marketing of mobile games on thumbr will then also start
from September.

In addition, Bob Mobile has reached agreement with the owners of UK company
Gorillabox Ltd. concerning a takeover of this software firm. Gorillabox has
developed very flexible technology to reproduce videos on mobile
telephones. A video stream can be optimized live for different screen sizes
and transfer speeds, for example. This technology is particularly valuable
when utilizing video advertising on mobile devices – one of the
fastest-growing advertising markets. Gorillabox is to be integrated into
thumbr in this context. Along with revenue from items sales and traditional
online advertising formats, video advertising plays a special role in the
thumbr strategy. The aim is to provide a special direct response video
format for advertising customers, which makes (advertising) videos
available both through streaming and as a one click download, and which can
be deployed as a pre-, mid-and post-roll solution. The purchase price for
Gorillabox amounts to between 20,000 and up to a maximum of 45,000 Bob
Mobile shares, depending on the attainment of certain earnout conditions.
The acquisition is to be completed by the end of the third quarter 2012.

All results for the first half of 2012 are preliminary. The application of
IFRS may still result in changes to the results for the first half of 2012
due to the merger. Complete final figures for the first half of 2012,
including balance sheet and the outlook, will be published before the end
of September 2012.

– Fully fledged thumbr portal will be available from mid of August

– Games offensive, a.o. ‘Rise to Fame,’ ‘War2Glory Mobile’, ‘Football Cup’, ‘Whacky Escape’, ‘Skyrise Runner’ and ‘Sheep Shack’

– Annual report 2011 published – positive Outlook

– Extraordinary effects due to withdrawal from Greece and selling Pink Adventure

– Positive outlook for 2012 and 2013

– Annual general shareholder meeting 24th August 2012

Bob Mobile AG (WKN A0HHJR, ISIN DE000A0HHJR3) 03.07.2012 – Bob Mobile continues its freemium games offensive with the launch of the new portal ‘thumbr.com’. Under the new freemium-umbrella brand ‘thumbr – The Gaming Experience’ a games offensive started in July 2012. The games will be ‘freemium’ games, that will be provided to the users for free either online or to be downloaded from the Apple Store or the Google Play Store. Revenues are generated by the company by item sale, upgrades and advertising.

‘We expect that the ,freemium’ area in addition to the successful ,premium’ model will become increasingly important. Bob Mobile AG is successfully developing from being a supplier of simple mobile products to a provider of attractive mobile and online games. Meanwhile ringtones have no longer relevance to our business and games already quantifies for over 55 percent of new customer sales, while other revenues are mainly generated by fun apps and quiz-games. More than 50 percent of the sales on mobile devices are for smartphones – which continue to increase strongly’, explains Remco Westermann, Chairman of the executive board of Bob Mobile AG. ‘Under the new umbrella brand ,thumbr’ we intend to expand our games offerings much further. The umbrella brand has the advantage of better marketability with a higher recognition value. It also provides additional cross-selling effects, thus increasing efficiency. All new releases in the freemium gaming area from now on will be launched under the new umbrella brand. As of mid August, the full fledge ,thumbr’ portal will be available with a wide choice of games as well as additional functionalities in the community area. Already successfully marketed games such as ,Ski Jump’ and ,War2Glory’ are gradually being integrated into ,thumbr’. In addition, Bob Mobile has several other mobile games in the pipeline to be launched soon under the brand ,thumbr”, Mr. Westermann continued.

The game-offensive started in July: A few days ago, the new iPhone music role-play game ‘Rise to Fame’ was launched and ‘War2Glory Mobile’, the mobile version of the successful online game will follow in August. In addition to the online football management game ‘Football Cup’ also following Mobile Games for iPhone resp. Android will be launched in the second half of 2012: the casual skill game ‘Whacky Escape’, the Jump & Run Distance Game ‘Skyrise Runner’ and the casual arcade game ‘Sheep Shack’.

Annual Report published in 2011, preliminary data confirmed, positive outlook

Bob Mobile AG has published its final audited consolidated financial results according to full IFRS for the full fiscal year 2011. The final figures fully match the preliminary figures that were published on 14 June. The past business year 2011 of the company was dedicated to important decisions in order to grow into a new dimension and gear the business model towards the attractive market segments. The Bob Mobile Group generated revenues of Euro 35.1 million in the business year 2011 (2010: Euro 40.7 million). This development was largely influenced by an almost full withdrawal from the Greek market and the exit from the activities of the adult entertainment subsidiary Pink Adventure AG. Excluding these extraordinary one-off effects Bob Mobile showed a revenue increase.

The adjusted consolidated group EBITDA, excluding merger costs of Euro 0.65 million amounts to EUR 0.35 million (2010: EUR 3.1 million). Due to write-offs of EUR 2.2 million the net result was EUR -2.5 million (2010: EUR 1.8 million). In addition to normal depreciation charges of EUR 0.8 million (2010: EUR 0.4 million) especially extraordinary write-offs of EUR 1.4 million influenced the result. The net profit after minority interests amounted to EUR -3.8 million (2010: EUR 1.3 million). The profit shares of the minorities (esp. Guerilla Mobile Berlin GmbH) cease in the business year 2012 as a result of the purchase of the respective minority shares.

Due to the good positioning in the fast-growing segment of mobile & online entertainment with a focus on (mobile) games in combination with the complete takeover of Cliq B.V. and the increase of the equity stake in Guerilla Mobile Berlin GmbH to 100%, the Bob Mobile executive board expects a substantial increase in revenues and earnings. The organizational and technical integration of Cliq B.V. was completed on schedule by the end of June 2012. From the second half of 2012 the acquisition related synergies will fully materialize and be reflected accordingly in the result. By the merger with Cliq B.V. and the establishment of the ‘freemium’ business unit, the Bob Mobile Group has achieved a strong market position, especially in Europe, and is from today’s perspective well positioned for profitable growth in 2012 and 2013.

The 2011’s consolidated results of Bob Mobile AG are based on first-time adoption of Full IFRS and have been certified by the auditing firm Mazars. The complete annual report 2011 is available in German for download on www.bobmobile.ag or can be ordered as a printed version from the Bob Mobile AG. An English version of the annual report will be made available soon.

2012 Annual General Meeting of Shareholders
The Annual General Shareholders Meeting of Bob Mobile AG will take place on 24 August 2012 in Düsseldorf. Executive Board and Supervisory Board will propose to the Annual General Meeting, to carry forward the balance sheet profit to new account. ‘Bob Mobile is primarily a growth company. Due to the high investments in the build-up of the Games- & Freemium-area and taking into account the loan for the acquisition of the Cliq B.V., we refrain from paying dividends for fiscal year 2011, in order to strengthen the substance of company. We trust that it is in the interest of the shareholders to strengthen the company in the long-term and invest in further growth.’, said CEO Remco Westermann.

Excluding extraordinary one-off items (sale of the adult business and withdrawal from the Greek market) revenues increased by 3 percent

Adjusted EBITDA 2011 amounts to Euro +0.35 million (EBITDA including merger costs Euro -0.30 million)
Net income before minority interests of Euro -2.5 million due to extraordinary one-offs (esp. impairments related to selling adult entertainment activities and impairments games licenses)
Annual results 2011 of the Cliq BV (Consolidated as from 2012)
Revenues of Euro 58 million on target
Adjusted EBITDA (excluding merger costs) of Euro 16 million
Net income of Euro 6.6 million

First quarter 2012: positive performance, projected figures for 2012 confirmed

Bob Mobile AG had a good start to the 2012 fiscal year. In the first quarter of 2012, group revenues increased by 92 percent to Euro 19.4 million (Q1 2011: Euro 10.1 million). The main reason for the sharp revenue increase is the first time consolidation of the new subsidiary Cliq B.V. from January 1st, 2012.

The Bob Mobile Group realized an adjusted EBITDA of Euro 3.3 million in the first quarter 2012, representing an increase of Euro 3.6 million compared to the previous year quarter (Q1 2011: Euro – 0.3 million). The Q1 adjusted EBITDA excludes merger and integration costs of Euro 0.3 million. The organizational and technical integration of Cliq BV will be completed on schedule by the end of June 2012. From the second half of 2012, all cost synergies that are related to the acquisition will be fully reflected in the results. For fiscal year 2012, the executive board expects a revenue increase to approximately Euro 95 million with an EBITDA of approximately Euro 18 million.

The business unit ‘Freemium’, which is still in the build-up phase, generated Euro 0.9 million, being about 5 percent, of group revenues in the first quarter 2012. The ‘Freemium’ business unit and its brand ‘thumbr’ will play an important role in the future strategy of Bob Mobile AG. The freemium model games are basically free to play for the user and available online as well as available as downloads from the Apple Store and the Google Play Store. The company generates revenues through item-sales, upgrades and advertising. While item-sales and upgrades already show appealing results (eg within ‘War2Glory’ and ‘Ski Jump’), the advertising part, consisting of lead generation, banner and video advertising, currently is being implemented and tested (eg. Apple just recently approved ‘thumbr’s new registration flow). In the first two quarters of 2012, the focus for the ‘Freemium’ unit was on the technical optimization and on increasing the revenue per player (ARPU), and – alongside the online freemium PC games – the build-up of the mobile freemium games area. It is planned to focus the ‘Freemium’ Unit on generating strong growth in the second half of 2012. This includes increased marketing activities as well as investments in a significant growth of the customer base and game assets (titles).

The business unit ‘Premium’ generated Euro 18.5 million, about 95 percent of group revenues in the first quarter 2012, while the surge in growth was primarily due to the consolidation of the Cliq BV from January 2012 onwards. The focus of the ‘Premium’ unit has further shifted in favor of the growth area games. The proportion of gaming customers rose from 45 percent at the end of 2011 to 55 percent at 31 March 2012. While the mobile premium services are available and advertised online in more than 40 countries, the focus of internationalization lies on the launch of new mobile portals. In the first quarter of 2012, the launch of the mobile portals in Ireland, Singapore, Spain, UK and Thailand has been realized, increasing the number of countries where the new mobile portals have been launched to a total of 15.

Consolidated group EBITDA showed a positive development: the ‘Premium’ unit contributes substantially, while the ‘Freemium’ unit was just under break-even with Euro -0.5 million in the first quarter. In the first quarter of 2012, no positive cost synergies from the Cliq acquisition are materializing yet. The synergies will only apply from the third quarter 2012 onwards, while the first two quarters still include additional merger and integration costs. Due to the fact that the IFRS handling (particularly purchase price allocation, goodwill amortization and depreciation) has not yet been finalized, the final Q1-2012 balance sheet figures will be released within the next month.

The fiscal year 2011 was focused on the acquisition of Cliq B.V. and the build-up of the business unit freemium games

Bob Mobile AG has, according to preliminary figures 2011, generated consolidated group revenues of Euro 35.1 million. This is a revenue decline of 14 percent compared to 2010 (Euro 40.7 million). Excluding extraordinary one-off elements, there was however a revenue increase of 3.0 percent. Extraordinary elements were the almost complete withdrawal from the Greek market due to a negative assessment of country risk (decline in revenues of Euro 5.7 million) and the exit from the adult entertainment area through the sale of the activities of the subsidiary Pink Adventure AG as of 1 August 2011 (decline in revenues of Euro 1.0 million). A 300-percent growth in online games and the freemium business area, as well as an increase in sales of mobile activities in other countries, could only partly offset the revenue decline.

The adjusted consolidated EBITDA for the full year 2011 amounts to Euro +0.35 million (2010: Euro 3.1 million). This adjusted EBITDA excludes merger costs of Euro 0.65 million. The EBITDA for the full year 2011 amounts to Euro – 0.30 million, including merger costs. In the first three quarters of 2011, there was a negative EBITDA as the positive EBITDA of the mobile activities didn’t fully compensate the negative EBITDA of the games activities. In the fourth quarter the improved EBITDA in the games unit lead to a positive EBITDA (Euro 0.2 million including and Euro 0.6 million excluding merger cost) for the total company.

The unit Freemium & Online Games (specifically Just A Game GmbH) showed a revenue growth of 300 percent (from Euro 1.0 million in 2010 to Euro 4.0 million in 2011) in the 2011 fiscal year. The lower than expected growth was caused by a delay in internationalization of the unit. The main reasons for this were technical delays, which have been overcome since then. The Executive Board anticipates a further significant growth of this promising business area in 2012.

The consolidated total after tax income for 2011 amounts to Euro -2.5 million before minority interests (2010: Euro +1.8 million). In addition to normal depreciation charges of Euro 0.8 million (2010: Euro 0.4 million) especially extraordinary write-offs, totaling Euro 1.4 million lead to this result. The write-offs resulted from extraordinary depreciations related to the sale of the Adult activities and media (Euro 1.0 million) as well as revaluations of licenses, particularly regarding the games license trading sector (Euro 0.4 million). After minority interests, the net result is Euro -3.8 million. The profit shares of the minorities (esp. Guerilla Mobile Berlin GmbH) cease in 2012 as a result of the purchase of the minority shares.

The 2011 results of Bob Mobile AG are based on first time full IFRS. The appointed auditor is currently finalizing the audit of the figures. The final figures and the full 2011 annual report will be published before 2nd July 2012. The Annual General Meeting of Bob Mobile AG will take place on 24 August 2012 in Düsseldorf.

Annual results 2011 of the acquired Cliq BV on plan

Cliq B.V., which has been acquired by Bob Mobile AG, has completed the fiscal year 2011 as planned. Cliq B.V. realized Euro 58 million revenues in the business year 2011 (corresponding to reported net sales excluding mobile operator share of Euro 41.5 million). The adjusted EBITDA (excluding merger costs) was at Euro 16 million according to plan. The net result amounted to Euro 6.6 million. The net result includes goodwill amortization of Euro 2.8 million. From fiscal year 2012 onwards Cliq B.V. will be fully consolidated within the Bob Mobile AG.

All figures for the first quarter of 2012 and for fiscal year 2011 are preliminary and unaudited. The IFRS implementation can still lead to changes in the Q1 2012 figures due to the acquisition of Cliq B.V. The balance sheet of Q1 2012 will be made available after finalizing the IFRS implementation.

Bob Mobile AG: announces extension of the executive board and launch of War2Glory mobile

– Executive board will be extended to 3 persons. Ben Bos will be responsible for Corporate

Finance and Mergers & Acquisitions

– Clear business strategy and focus on ‘Premium’ & ‘Freemium’ Games and Applications

– Full operational and technical Integration of Cliq B.V. to be completed by end of June 2012

– ‘War2Glory Mobile’ being launched for iPhone and Android

– Two more new mobile games being launched: ‘Rise to Fame’ and ‘Dragons vs. Unicorns’

– Outlook for the business year 2012 confirmed

Ben Bos joining the executive board of Bob Mobile AG

Ben Bos (50) has been appointed as the third member of the Bob Mobile executive board (Vorstand) and will be responsible for corporate finance and mergers & acquisitions. The appointment is a reflection of the agreed strategy to further continue Bob Mobile’s growth story based on organic as well as on non-organic growth. The other executive board members are the chairman Remco Westermann (finance and investor relations) and Luc Voncken (operations). Mr. Bos is an expert in the mobile telecoms and content business. Previously, he was Chairman of the supervisory board of Cliq B.V. and has over 10 years of experience as a corporate finance advisor. Earlier he has worked in leading positions in the media industry ( ID&T & Arcade Entertainment) as well as holding positions within the Jardine Matheson Group.

Integration of Cliq B.V. progressing according to plan: focus on two core business areas

The acquisition of 100% of the shares of Dutch mobile specialist Cliq B.V. and the acquisition of the remaining shares of Guerilla Mobile Berlin GmbH that were announced on November 14, 2011 were closed successfully in February 2012.

With the full operational integration almost completed, the business operations are now structured in two primary business units: ‘Freemium’ and ‘Premium’. Whereas in both business units games are the central growth driver, the business models are different. The ‘Premium’ business area concentrates on consumers who pay from day one, paying either for a single sale or achieving improved value for money with a subscription service. In the ‘Freemium’ business area, customers can, conversely, play for free after registering. The commercial returns in this ‘Freemium’ business model are based on a combination of item sales and advertising (e.g. lead generation, banner and video advertising). This operational split enables a clear focus of each of the two business units, while using synergies between the two business units and ensuring a consumer-centric approach.

The integration and optimization of the operational units as well as the integration of the technical infrastructure and platforms will be concluded before the end of June 2012 and enable substantial future cost savings whilst delivering a very strong operational and technical platform for growth. While Bob Mobile and Cliq together employed approx. 165 employees by the end of 2011, the strategic combination of Bob Mobile and Cliq being structured into two business units will reduce the number of FTE’s significantly to approx. 135 employees by the end of June 2012, proving already the substantial cost synergies of the combined companies. With the timing of the closing in mid February, the commercial integration of the companies started from that time and is on target.

Extension of the games portfolio: War2Glory Mobile, Dragons vs. Unicorns & Rise to Fame

The successful Freemium online game, ‘War2Glory’ currently available in 7 language versions, with over 3 million registered users is developing well. ‘War2Glory’ will by the end of June 2012 also be available on iPhone, iPod and iPad (German language version). ‘War2Glory Mobile’ for Android Phones will also follow soon in Q3 2012. ‘War2Glory Mobile’ is expected to become as successful as the PC version. The combination between the PC and the mobile versions is expected to give an additional impulse to growth.

The mobile game ‘SkiJump’ that is available for iPhone, iPod, iPad and was recently launched for Android Phones is also performing well and has so far accomplished over 1 million downloads, including over 100.000 paid downloads and item sales (including selling virtual ski wax).

There are also several new games in the pipeline, in June the music RPG ‘Rise to Fame’ will be launched, a role play game where the gamer manages a rock band. ‘Rise to Fame’ will be made available for iPhone, iPad and Android in English and German. The game was signed as a revenue share deal with worldwide exclusivity. Additionally, in September the game ‘Dragons vs. Unicorns’ will be launched, the game will be made available for Apple, Android and PC.

Outlook business year 2012 confirmed, Annual figures 2011 and Q1 figures will be reported beginning of June

Final figures for 2011 are expected to be presented latest by the beginning of June 2012, as will the Q1 2012 figures. The company, with advice from the auditors, has decided to consolidate Cliq only from 2012 onwards, as a consolidation from November 2011 would have resulted in disproportional extra efforts and costs.

With the acquisition of Cliq B.V., Bob Mobile has substantially strengthened its market position. Clear cost savings are expected from the end of the second quarter onwards that will have a positive impact on the operational margin further in the year. The Executive Board of Bob Mobile confirms the targets for the business year 2012; while increasing revenues expectation to Euro 95 million, the Ebitda is expected to reach app. Euro 18 million.

Bob Mobile AG announces the planned acquisition of mobile specialist Cliq BV

Expansion of international presence into over 40 countries, annual revenues increase to over € 95 million with an EBITDA of more than € 18 million post acquisition

• Complete takeover of Cliq BV planned as a milestone against the strategic plan of becoming a leading international provider of online games and mobile games
• Purchase price of Cliq BV is € 20 million in cash and 1.9 million new shares in Bob-Mobile
• Combined customer base of over 9 million customers in over 40 countries
• Strengthening of the management team: Cliq-CEO Luc Voncken will join the Bob Mobile executive Board
• In Parallel: increase of stake in Mobile Guerrilla Berlin to 100 percent
• Q3 results influenced by merger costs
• Outlook confirms growth track of Bob Mobile AG
• Extraordinary General Meeting on 22 December 2011

Bob Mobile AG (WKN A0HHJR, ISIN DE000A0HHJR3), 14.11.2011 – Bob Mobile AG, an international provider of
online games and value-added mobile phone services, continues the logic of its dynamic growth strategy with the
acquisition of Dutch mobile specialists Cliq BV. The planned acquisition of Amsterdam-based Cliq BV enables the
Bob Mobile Group to expand its international presence significantly. With an expected combined annual turnover
of over € 95 million, an EBITDA of over € 18 million and earnings per share of at least € 1.95 in fiscal 2012, the
Group progresses to a new dimension of sales and earnings. The complete takeover of its Dutch competitor
represents a significant step on the road to becoming a world leader in online games and mobile games.

Acceleration of international sales for Games
The intended acquisition of Cliq BV, which specializes in the sales and marketing of mobile phone
products, also represents another important milestone in Bob Mobile AG’s strategic focus. With its
foundation of Just A Game GmbH in 2010, Bob Mobile has created a second pillar in the gaming sector
and particularly in online games. Roll-out of games via mobile phone customers and service subscribers
is of special significance within this strategy. With support from the new subsidiary Cliq, the
international distribution of games will be accelerated considerably in the future.

Acquisition of 100 percent
Bob Mobile will consolidate Cliq BV -which is aiming for a turnover of approximately € 60 million (€ 43
million net sales) and EBITDA of € 16.5 million for the full year 2011- with backdated consolidation from
1 October 2011. The purchase price for 100 percent of Cliq BV’s shares consists of € 20 million in cash
and 1.9 million new Bob Mobile shares. Taking into account Cliq’s indebtedness of € 9.8 million (€ 6.8
million expected at closing) Bob Mobile will pay less than the 3.5 times 2011 EBITDA for the Dutch based
company. To finance the acquisition, Bob Mobile has secured a bank loan. The issue of new Bob-
Mobile’s shares is subject to approval in the Extraordinary General Meeting on 22 December 2011.

More than 9 million customers
“Cliq has excellent marketing expertise; immediately from day one, this unlocks new marketing
opportunities for Bob Mobile – especially in relation to mobile phone games via marketing to this large
customer base” says Bob Mobile board, Remco Westermann. “In addition, the country and geographic
portfolios fit together perfectly, since there is hardly any overlap between them. Despite our strong
organic growth in recent years, the majority of Bob Mobile sales are achieved in the German-speaking
countries. Now including Cliq, Bob Mobile will have over 9 million customers per year, consisting of over
2.5 million active subscriptions, more than 2.5 million registered online players and more than 4 million
other customers. This means that we will be able to offer a combined product portfolio with a potential
reach of over 2 billion potential customers in over 40 markets, including all the major European
countries; as well as Brazil, Canada and Russia” Westermann continues. In addition to a significant
acceleration of growth, Westermann expects significant synergies on the costs side.

New Bob Mobile board
Luc Voncken, CEO of Cliq BV and future board member of Bob Mobile AG is looking forward to the
merger of the two mobile specialists: “I am confident that together we will be able to play a significant
role in the games market – in both the mobile phone and the online sectors.” As CEO of Cliq and
designated CEO of the Just A Game GmbH, Luc Voncken will direct the two Bob-Mobile subsidiaries. The
new Bob-Mobile’s Executive Board will consist of Remco Westermann as Chairman and Luc Voncken.

Increase in holdings at Guerilla Mobile
In parallel with the Cliq transaction, Bob will increase its stake in Guerrilla Mobile Berlin GmbH from 50.2
percent to 100 percent. Since its founding in 2008, Guerrilla Mobile Berlin GmbH has grown dynamically
year-on-year and has since successfully established itself as a leader in the mobile content business, with
an expected annual turnover of € 27 million. The underlying minority participation will be sold by the
two co-founders and managing directors of Guerilla Mobile, Maurice Reimer and Oliver Thiel. Besides
362,500 new Bob-Mobile’s shares, the purchase price includes a performance-based cash component.
Just A Game developing well, however progressing below its high expectations.
With currently more than 2.7 million registered players, the Bob Mobile subsidiary, Just A Game GmbH,
continues to develop and grow well. After a promising start to the year, in the third quarter of 2011, Just
A Game was not fully able to realize the high sales growth expectations. This was caused by delays in the
internationalization process and lower sales from the game licences division. On the positive side, the
development of the online game “Operation Gamma 41” that, besides the existing flagship “War2Glory”,
is developing very positively. Moreover, the increased international presence, the full integration of
Guerrilla Mobile Berlin and the financial strength of the new Bob-Mobile Group’s will speed up the
strategic realignment, with its focus on online games, and as from the fourth quarter of 2011 have a
positive impact on the business development of Just A game. In the third quarter of 2011, Bob Mobile
achieved sales of € 10 million (previous year: € 10 million). The EBITDA of € -0.3 million (previous year: €
1.2 million) was adversely affected by extraordinary expenses incurred in connection with the takeover
of Cliq.

Outlook
Taking into account the impact of Cliq BV, which is planned to be consolidated from 1 October 2011, Bob
Mobile expects significant revenue and EBITDA growth for the full year 2011. Following the full
integration of Cliq BV and Mobile Guerrilla Berlin, revenues in fiscal 2012 are expected to rise to over €
95 million, with an EBITDA of over € 18 million. With an increased number of shares -totaling
approximately 3.95 million shares- following the completion of the transactions, earnings per share of at
least € 1.95 are expected for 2012.
Implementation of the transaction requires the approval of the shareholders of Bob Mobile AG. An
Extraordinary General Meeting is taking place on 22 December 2011. The general outlook is based on
the assumption that there will be no unexpected adverse events of major significance and that the
turbulent developments in the financial markets will not have a negative impact on operations.
The figures for the third quarter of 2011 are preliminary, unaudited and have not been subject to audit
review.

Positive development in the second quarter – full year outlook confirmed

* Half year revenues increase by 24,5% to 17.3 million Euro.
* Break even EBIT in second quarter even though still investing
substantially in the games sector.
* Games unit furthermore developing positively and reaching break even on
monthly bases in the third quarter.
* Sale of Pink Adventure leads to book profit.
* Full year outlook confirmed.

Bob Mobile AG (WKN A0HHJR, ISIN DE000A0HHJR3), 22.08.2011 – The Bob Mobile
AG, a leading provider of mobile value added services and online games, has
continued the positive trend from the first quarter in the second quarter
2011. The revenue in the second quarter was at 8.7 million Euro
approximately 13 percent above last year (7.7 million Euro) and exceeded
also the first quarter 2011 (8.6 million Euro). While the Mobile activities
showed a slight decline in revenues versus the first quarter due to market
changes and seasonal effects, the games activities however were able to
more then compensate this decline. From the end of the second quarter the
mobile activities picked up their growth path again. The revenue of the
full first half year 2011 was at 17.3 million Euro, 24.5% above the first
half year 2010 (13.9 million Euro).

Also the operational results developed positively. Even though still
heavily investing in marketing and build-up of the Games Unit, the
consolidated Group EBIT in the second quarter was at 0.0 million Euro
break even, after a negative EBIT in the first Quarter 2011
(-0.2 million Euro). In the first half year 2011 the EBIT was at -0.2
million Euro and due to the high increase in investments as well as
start-up cost of the Games activities according to plan were lower than the
previous first half year EBIT (1.5 million Euro). The EBIT is showing a
positive trend. Already in the third quarter the games activities will,
based on the current trend reach break even on a monthly bases and add to
profits thereafter.

The Games Unit is furthermore developing well. By June 30, 2011 the total
number of registrations for the games amounted to 1.8 million, currently
this figure is over 2.5 million. Altogether four Online-Browsergames have
been launched until now. Especially the first game, ‘War2Glory’, has by now
proven that higher than average returns can be generated in this segment.
‘War2Glory’ has by now been launched in more then 10 countries. Based on
the learnings so far, the game has been further optimized by the developer
as well as the team of the Bob Mobile subsidiary Just A Game, leading to
even better returns.
The online games ‘9Empires’ and ‘Gondal World’ were not able to show a
similar success, active marketing of these games has been stopped due to
the low returns. While ‘Gondal World’ has been ceased altogether,
‘9Empires’ will be further optimized to be able to get a better return from
the game in the future. The fourth browser game ‘Operation Gamma 41’ is
after recent improvements showing a very promising development and could in
the mid-term even exceed the success of ‘War2Glory’.

In the second half year 2011 the first social games will be launched,
contrary to the more complex strategy and build games like eg ‘War2Glory’,
this type of games attracts a broader audience of gameplayers. The Beta
testing of ‘MyFarmland’ – a realistic social online-game simulating the
running of a farm – will be launched soon. Further social games are being
in preparation.

Also the mobile area shows promising developments. The internationalization
strategy is adding to the positive development, by now the mobile services
are on offer in 18 countries. The revenues in the second quarter were based
on optimizations and lower marketing expenditures were lower than in the
previous quarter, but showed by the end of the second quarter a clear
growth trend. While the activities in Greece have been further reduced, the
expansion into new markets was in focus. The corrections based on balance
sheet deferrals and accruals in 2010 lead to a positive effect of the
revenues and results
(+ 0.4 million Euro) in the first half year of 2011.

The negotiations regarding the sale of Pink Adventure AG have lead to an
agreement. The sale of the subsidiary leads to a book profit of minimum
0.2 million Euro, that will be included in the third quarter 2011 results.

Based on the positive developments in the first half year as well as on the
first weeks of the third quarter 2011, the executive board of Bob Mobile
expects a two digit percentage growth of revenues in 2011, the sale of the
subsidiary Pink Adventure leads to a loss of 1.5 million Euro of revenues
in the second half year. Also the EBIT is expected to develop positive.
Even though the first half year showed a negative EBIT due to the strong
invest in the online games segment, the executive board is expecting an
operational result at or above the previous years result. Based on the
current trend a strong increase in revenues and returns is expected for
2012.

This outlook is based on the assumption that there will be no unexpected
negative events of major impact that affect the Group and the assumption
that the turbulent developments at the financial markets will not have a
negative impact on the operational business.

Please note, the figures of the first half year are preliminary and have
not been testified.

Final figures for the business year 2010

* Revenue increase in 2010 to 40.7 million Euro (2009: 34,5 million Euro),
an 18% increase
* Annual net profit remains positive at 1.2 million Euro, even with
substantial investments in new subsidiaries
* Increasing focus in the online games segment – equity ownership in games
subsidiary Just A Game GmbH increased to 100 percent
* Currently over 2.4 million online players already registered – the
latest online game ‘Operation Gamma 41’ launched successfully
* Sale of subsidiary Pink Adventure AG (mobile adult services)

Bob Mobile AG (WKN A0HHJR, ISIN DE000A0HHJR3), 25.07.2011 – The executive
board of the Bob Mobile AG has, based on the positive developments in the
online games units, decided to further increase company focus in this
business area. In addition to online games for internet-PC’s, there will be
an increased offering for smartphones and tablet-PCs in the near future.

The Bob Mobile AG today published its final IFRS figures for the business
year 2010, the figures have been certified by the accountant. The group
revenues increased by 18,0 percent versus the previous year, totalling 40.7
million Euro (2009: 34.5 million Euro). The group EBIT for the business
year 2010 amounted to 2.7 million Euro, lower then in the previous year
(2009; 4.3 million Euro). Despite the substantial investments, the net
group profit, excluding third party interests, was positive at 1.2 million
Euro, although below the record level of the previous year (2009: 1.7
million Euro), but above the results from 2008 (0.6 million Euro).

In the business year 2010, there was substantial investment in the
build-up, growth and technical capability of the online games segment. The
expected start-up costs of the new segment online games had a negative
effect on the results. ‘By now it is clearly visible, that the expansion
into the games segment, by founding the ,Just A Game GmbH’ was a good
decision: as the number of players as well as the financial KPI’s show
positive development’, Bob Mobile-CEO Remco Westermann, commented on the
latest developments. The results in 2010 were further under pressure due
to investments in international expansion of the mobile segment, by the
mobile subsidiary Guerilla Mobile Berlin GmbH. Versus the previously
announced preliminary figures, an amount of 0.9 million Euro has been
corrected in the Guerilla Mobile Berlin GmbH subsidiary, in agreement with
the accountant, with the main reason being balance sheet deferrals and
accruals.

The Bob Mobile AG has positioned itself well in the fast growing market for
browser games. The games subsidiary Just A Game GmbH is growing faster
than planned with currently over 2.4 million registered players. After
‘War2Glory’ and ‘9Empires’ in the beginning of July, the third online game
‘Operation Gamma 41’ has been commercially launched. Two weeks after launch
more then 50,000 players have already registered. Currently War2Glory is
being played in more then 10 countries. Some weeks ago ‘War2Glory’ has,
after the Italian language version, also launched a French language
version. In addition, the first social game will be launched in August
2011.

Based on the positive developments in the online games segment, the
executive board has decided to focus the Bob Mobile AG even stronger at the
games segment. Currently Bob Mobile AG is negotiating further games
licences for mobile phones (iPhone, Android) and tablet-PCs. In line with
increasing the focus towards the online games segment, Bob Mobile AG has
increased its equity participation in Just A Game GmbH from 84 to 100
percent. The Just A Game management, being the previous minority
shareholder, has been compensated by 8.000 Bob Mobile shares and stock
options for a further maximum of 20.000 Bob Mobile shares. As a further
step towards focus, the executive board has decided to sell its
participation Pink Adventure AG (adult-services). The transaction is
expected to be closed within the third quarter.

shareholder meeting will take place at August 31, 2011.

Successful start to the business year 2011 – Revenue growth of 35% in the first quarter

* Revenue growth from 6.2 million to 8.4 million Euro
* EBIT only slightly negative at -0.4 million Euro, though investing
heavily in the games sector
* Full year outlook confirmed
* Number of registered players of the online games increased to over 1.75
million
* New online-games launched: in addition to ‘War2Glory’ now also ‘9Empires’
(RPG) and ‘Operation Gamma 41’ (build & strategy) have been launched
* Strategic partnership with EuroVideo

Bob Mobile AG (WKN A0HHJR, ISIN DE000A0HHJR3), 23.05.2011 – Bob Mobile AG,
a leading provider of mobile value added services and online games, had a
successful start to the business year 2011. In the first quarter the group
continued its dynamic growth, increasing revenues by 35 percent reaching
8.4 million Euro (Q1/2009: 6.2 million Euro). The EBIT was -despite
investing heavily as planned in the Games subsidiary Just A Game that was
founded in 2010- only slightly negative at -0.4 million Euro. Excluding the
start-up costs in the games area, the EBIT increased by 17% at 0.7 million
Euro (Q1/2009: 0.6 million Euro). Bob Mobile also confirms its targets for
the business year 2011. Whereas revenues are expected to increase with a
two digit percentage, the EBIT for the business year 2011 shall be over the
3.6 million Euro of the previous year despite the substantial investments
in growth.

‘We have been able to strengthen our market position substantially in the
first quarter. Despite our investment of several millions for growth and
internationalization, we have accomplished an only slightly negative
operational result, while we again increased the revenues substantially’,
Bob-Mobile-CEO Remco Westermann commented, being satisfied with the start
into the new business year. ‘As Just A Game is again showing fast growth, I
am optimistic about our Games-Unit reaching break-even level already in the
third quarter and closing the full year with a slight profit. At group
level we will already be back into profitability in the second quarter’,
Westermann commented further.

The Games subsidiary Just A Game continues to develop above plan. The
number of the players that have registered for the online-games ‘War2Glory’
and ‘9Empires’ showed further strong growth and is already at over 1.75
million. Next to the core markets Germany and Greece, there was positive
development in the UK and the USA which has contributed to the strong
growth. Also the Polish version of the browser game ‘War2Glory’ had a
promising start, already reaching over 100.000 registrations in it’s first
month. After the recent launch of the Italian language version, the French
version of ‘War2Glory’ will be launched in June. Additionally with the
launch of ‘Operation Gamma 41’, previously known under the working title
‘Impasse War’, an additional high quality strategy and build game was
launched in a Beta version. The commercial launch for Germany is scheduled
for June, while the UK/US version is scheduled for launch in July 2011.

Just A Game will also, in addition to the online games, distribute it’s
games portfolio digitally. The basis for this has been built by closing
distribution agreements with relevant distribution platforms eg. Steam and
PSN. Utilising the platform of the marketleader Steam -with over 30 million
active customers- various titles, ao. ‘NavalWarfare’ and ‘Storm: Frontline
Nation’ will be launched in the coming weeks. Just A Game has won a further
strategic cooperation partner; the EuroVideo Bildprogramm GmbH. EuroVideo
signed the exclusive distribution rights for Germany, Austria and
Switserland for the titles ‘Deep Black’, ‘Storm: Frontline Nation’,
‘Anomaly: Warzone Earth’ and ‘Garshasp’ from the Just A Game Line-Up. For
both companies this is the start of a long term strategic partnership.

Also the team of Just A Game has been extended for further expansion. The
games-unit has strengthened the management team with the addition of Volker
Dressel, former director marketing and communications of the Axel-Springer
subsidiary Gamigo AG. Volker Dressel has long term experience in all
marketing fields and has substantial contacts into the publishing and media
environment. Previously he worked for several years as responsible media
person with AOL Deutschland and Alice/Telekom Italia.

Preliminary financials for the businessyear 2010: increased investments providing a strong base for a further growth increase in 2011 – higher forecast for the online games division

* Revenue increased to 40 Million EUR in 2010
* EBIT slightly lower due to higher investments – normalized EBIT growth at
4.5 Million EUR.
* Net result at same level as in the previous year, 2009
* Online Game War2Glory shows further strong growth, now reaching over 1.35
million registered players
* Online games furthermore developing very positive, increasing the revenue
forecast for 2011 to 12 million EUR.

Bob Mobile AG (WKN A0HHJR, ISIN DE000A0HHJR3), 02.05.2011 – Bob Mobile AG,
a leading provider of mobile value added services and online games, has in
the business year 2010 further continued its path of dynamic growth.
According to preliminary figures the consolidate group revenues increased
more than expected to the level of 40 million EUR (2009: 34.5 million EUR).
The EBIT of 3.6 million EUR. was, due to the start-up cost of the newly
founded (2010) games subsidiary Just A Game GmbH as well as extra
investments for the international growth in the mobile area from the
subsidiary Guerilla Mobile Berlin GmbH, lower than the EUR 4.1 million from
the previous year. The normalized 2010 EBIT of EUR. 4.5 million however,
that excludes the start-up costs of Just A Game, clearly exceeds the
previous 2009 business years EBIT. The net result at group level amounted
to EUR 2.5 million in the business year 2010. If excluding the third party
minority interests the profit for 2010 amounted to 1.7 million EUR (2009:
1.7 Mio. EUR).

‘For the year 2010, we have deliberately chosen the option to invest in
growth, even though the implementation due to start-up cost as well as the
costs for faster growth, lowered our EBIT in the short term. In the fourth
quarter, we even managed more growth than expected and so for the first
time reached the EUR 40 million annual revenue mark.’ commented
Bob-Mobile-CEO Remco Westermann who presents the figures. ‘Our investment
in the rapidly growing market for online-games will already show results in
the current year. Additionally, by opening new foreign markets and by extra
expenditures to assist growth, we have also substantially strengthened our
Mobile Unit in the business year 2010’, Westermann continued.

‘The Games subsidiary Just A Game GmbH in its’ founding year added to the
group result with a revenue of one million and a negative EBIT of 0.9 Mio.
EUR. Currently, the games unit is, due to the strong growth in recent
months as well as the successful integration of the publisher ‘Capital
Games’, running well over plan. The number of cumulatively registered
players is now well over 1.35 million. Also the Polish language version of
the browsergame War2Glory was successfully launched, reaching already more
than 45.000 registrations within the first ten days. Before the end of June
the Just A Game unit will also launch the Italian, French, Spanish,
Portuguese and Turkish language versions of War2Glory. In addition, the
launch of the English language version for the strategy game ,impasse war’
is scheduled for May.

‘Based on the very positive development from the beginning of this year we
have increase the revenue forecast for the games unit from 10 to 12 million
for the full year 2011.’, Remco Westermann gives a positive outlook. ‘I
expect additional growth impulses from our first social game to be launched
in September. This game, with the preliminary internal title ,Real Farm’
simulates the life of a farmer. ‘Real Farm’ distinguishes itself by its top
gameplay and makes -in contrary to several successful comic based online
farm games, eg Farmerama and Farmville- use of realistic graphics. With
this game we will be filling an empty space in the area of browser games,
by being the first mover into this category ‘, Westermann continues.

Altogether Bob Mobile expects for the business year 2011 a two digit
percentage revenue growth. Subsequently the EBIT shall increase, even
though there are further significant investments into growth. The
investments are building the base for further strong growth in the coming
years. Based on the scalability effects in the online games area, Bob
Mobile expects from 2012 onwards higher EBIT yields.

All figures for the business year 2010 are preliminary and have not yet
been testified. Final figures for the business year 2010 are expected to be
published for mid-June.

Acquisition of Capital Games strengthens games subsidiary, Just A game

* Acquisition of the online games publisher, Capital Games GmbH, Berlin
* Product offensive of Bob Mobile subsidiary Just A Game
* Three new browser games in the first half-year 2011
* Social games intended to develop new customer groups
* More than 800,000 registrations for War2Glory

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.’

  • 01 Feb 2011

New online-game “Kingdom of Gondal” to be launched in April

* Worldwide licence for ,Kingdom of Gondal’ secured
* The successor to the successful RPG Gondal
* War2Glory has achieved over 400.000 registrations
* Strategic sales co-operations
* Positive outlook on revenues and earnings
* Capital increase successfully concluded

Bob Mobile AG (WKN A0HHJR, ISIN DE000A0HHJR3), 1. February 2011 – Bob
Mobile AG, a rapidly growing provider of mobile value added services and
online games have pushed their expansion in the gaming sector. After the
successful launch of the game War2Glory, Bob Mobile’s subsidiary Just A
Game, has now secured the worldwide rights to the online browser game
‘Kingdom of Gondal – The Dark Empire’. Kingdom of Gondal is the successor
to the highly successful RPG Gondal, which has about 1.5 million players.
The launch in the German-speaking countries is expected in April and will
be quickly followed by the publication of other language versions.

‘The success of its predecessor Gondal is an excellent reference for,
Kingdom of Gondal’. I am confident that we can herewith continue the
successes of War2Glory’ said Bob Mobile CEO Remco Westermann. ‘In parallel,
we are working intensively on the further development of our games offer.
This year, we want to launch and bring to market at least six online games.
We are aiming at both social games as well as MMOGs, which currently enjoy
a high demand. The negotiations concerning additional new games are already
well underway, so we expect that we can present the full 2011 line-up
soon’, continued Westermann.

The success of War2Glory continued into the new year. After the successful
launch in the German speaking countries, as well as the launch of the
English and Greek language version in December 2010, Just A Game has now
signed up it’s 400,000th registration. Further growth impulses are expected
from the launch of the Polish language version in February and the Italian
language version in April.

Next to the online games business, the classic games license-trading
business has also started the year quite successfully. In recent weeks,
global strategic alliances have been concluded with distribution companies,
which will distribute the products of Just A Game locally, having clear six
figure sales volumes. In addition to a variety of closings in the main
European markets, sales agreements were also signed with companies from
Russia, Australia, USA, Canada, Japan and the Middle East. Based on these
co-operations Just A Game -within six months from starting operations- has
coverage in all the major sales markets of Europe, North America, Asia and
Oceania.

Also in the company’s Mobile Value Added Services area, the international
expansion is progressing well. Besides the launch of services in Poland, a
new subsidiary was founded in the U.S.A. with the plan to enter the U.S.
market in the first half of 2011. Bob Mobile expects these new markets to
provide strong demand and drive impetus for further growth. Despite an
expected decline in sales in the Greek market due to the difficult economic
situation, the area of mobile value-added services is expected to grow
profitably in the current fiscal year.

Overall, Bob Mobile expects fiscal 2011 revenues to increase in a
double-digit percentage range. Additionally, the EBIT is -despite high
investment in growth and internationalization- expected to grow. The
investments being made are laying the foundation for further strong sales
growth in the coming years. Due to scaling effects, Bob Mobile expects from
2012 onward structurally higher EBIT yields.

The capital increase agreed and invoked on the 7th December 2010 with
subscription rights in the ratio 6:1, has been fully completed with the
successful entry and registration in the trade register. The share capital,
after placement of the 241,171 new shares, now amounts to EUR1,688,199. The
gross proceeds from the capital increase amounted to approximately EUR4.04
million. The brokerage Lang & Schwarz GmbH, Düsseldorf, oversaw the
transaction as sole leadmanager and sole bookrunner.

Capital Increase clearly oversubscribed

* Significant over-subscription of the capital increase
* Additional liquidity of 4.04 million euros to finance growth in
the games unit
* More than 200,000 registrations for War2Glory
* Strategic cooperation with SimBin Studios
* Significant Milestone in North America expansion
* IPhone / iPad Game ‘Retro Table Soccer’ launched successfully

Bob Mobile AG (WKN A0HHJR, ISIN DE000A0HHJR3), Jan 03, 2011 – Bob Mobile
AG, a rapidly growing provider of mobile value-added services and online
games, has successfully completed the capital increase with subscription
rights in the ratio 6:1 that was approved by the board on December 7. All
241,171 new shares were subscribed at a subscription price of 16.75 Euro,
by existing shareholders via the subscription rights as well as by
institutional investors via private placement. The issue was clearly
oversubscribed.

The company’s share capital will be increased to 1,688,200 Euro, following
the registration of the capital increase in the trade register. The gross
proceeds of the increase amount to approximately Euro 4.04 million. The
Lang & Schwarz Broker GmbH, Düsseldorf, oversaw the transaction as sole
lead manager and sole bookrunner.

The proceeds from the capital increase are intended to finance accelerated
growth in the games unit. Just A Game GmbH, that was founded in July 2010,
continues to develop well above plan. The online building strategy game
War2Glory continues to penetrate the market and grow above expectations,
despite reduced marketing expenditures at year end. The cumulative number
of registrations has increased to over 200,000 only seven weeks after
market launch. The Greek and English language versions of War2Glory, which
were launched in the past few days, should contribute to accelerated growth
from January 2011 onwards.

Additional growth momentum should come from the cooperation of the
licensing unit of Just A Game with the renowned Swedish development studio
SimBin Studios AB. The first title of the cooperation is the strategy game
‘Storm Front Line Nation’. Just A Game has secured the worldwide
distribution rights for this PC title, that is set in modern Europe and
North Africa and cleverly combines strategic and tactical combat elements.
The game is scheduled to be available from March 2011.

In addition, the licensing arm of Just A Game can announce a significant
milestone in international expansion. The Bob-Mobile subsidiary has won
Strategy First Inc., Montreal/Canada, as strategic distribution partner for
the important North American games market. The first title for the planned,
long term cooperation between Strategy First and Just A Game is the
acclaimed underwater shooter ‘Deep Black’. Strategy First will release the
Just A Game titles in North America. The distribution agreement includes in
the first stage a total of five products from the Just A Game games
catalogue.

Success is also being achieved in the Apple world – the first
iPhone-/iPad-Game that is offered by Just A Game has been met with high
demand. Just days after publication, the versions ‘Retro Table Soccer’ and
‘Retro Table Soccer HD’ for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad have made the top
20 in the sports category of Apple’s German App Store. This game is so far
the only original implementation of the internationally popular table
soccer principle.

Bob Mobile AG: Online Game War2Glory grows faster than expected, Increase of capital to facilitate further growth in the games sector.

* Increase of capital with subscription right in the proportion of 6 to 1
in order to fund quicker growth in the games sector
* War2Glory growth exceeds expectations; more than 50,000 users already
* Plans for further growth with additional language versions of War2Glory
and new games
* Dividend payments will be paused for one year to facilitate growth in the
games sector
* Increasing targets 2011: clear two digit growth of revenues

The Bob Mobile AG (WKN A0HHJR, ISIN DE000A0HHJR3), 6th December 2010 – Just
A Game GmbH, founded in July 2010, is evolving even better than expected.
Within a very short period of time, more than 50,000 users have registered
for the building strategy game War2Glory, which has only been released a
few weeks ago. Currently growth continues with more than 5,000
registrations per day. Following the release of the Greek (beginning of
December) and the English (planned for mid-December) language versions,
War2Glory is expected to grow even faster. Revenue development exceeds
plan. In addition there are two more online games in the works, one a
social game and the other a free-to-play massive multiplayer online game
similar to War2Glory. Trading activities in the field of games licenses are
also developing well. Meanwhile contracts have been concluded exceeding the
sum of 650,000 Euros. As a whole the gaming unit is well on the way to
exceed the target of 1 million Euros aimed at in 2010.

Due to the success of War2Glory, Bob Mobile AG has decided to maintain the
current speed of growth and even increase it with the launch of the
additional language versions. The sales target for the games sector will be
raised to 10 million Euros for the business year 2011 (previous 5 million
Euros). In the mobile value added services unit further profitable growth
is planned. Therefore Bob Mobile expects to grow turnover again with a two
digit percentage in the business year 2011. Due to investments into
facilitating faster growth, profits will only marginally increase compared
to 2010. From 2012 onwards it is however planned to achieve structurally
higher rates of return.

For funding the faster growth, the executive board of Bob Mobile AG has,
with the approval of the supervisory board today decided, to utilize the
available allowed capital according to § 7, section 1, of the articles of
the company, to increase the capital, with subscription rights for the
shareholders, amounting up to 241,171 new shares against cash
contributions, carrying full dividend rights from the financial year 2010
onwards. The share capital of the company shall be increased from 1,447,028
Euros to up to 1,688,199 Euros by issuing up to 241,171 new bearer shares.
The shareholders will be granted a subscription right in the proportion of
6 to 1. The two weeks subscription period starts on 10.12.2010. The
subscription price of the new shares will be 16.75 Euros per share. The
shareholders will be permitted to oversubcribe, subscription rights will
not be traded and there will be no compensation for unused subscription
rights. The management and institutional investors will subscribe on a
private placement basis for shares which are not placed to the shareholder
by the rights issue.

Lang & Schwarz Broker GmbH, Düsseldorf, Germany, will accompany the
increase of capital as a sole lead manager and sole bookrunner. Afterwards
the new shares will be listed into the open market (entry standard) at the
Frankfurt Stock Exchange. Additionally the executive board and the
supervisory board of Bob Mobile AG have decided to pause dividend payments
for a year, to invest these means in growing the games unit, putting mid
term goals over short term goals.

The chairman of the board Remco Westermann commented theone time omission
of the dividend as follows: ‘We can achieve a growth rate in the gaming
unit that we never had expected. In order to realize this we now have to
focus on strengthening the financial position of the company. We assume
that the temporary omission of the dividend is the right way to strengthen
the internal structure as well as the future growth of Bob Mobile. ‘

With the new capital Bob Mobile AG will be able to strengthen its market
position in mobile value added services and finance fast growth in the
online games unit.

  • 22 Nov 2010

Group EBIT and revenue increase of 30% in Q3/2010

* Revenue increased from 7.7 to 10.0 million Euro
* EBIT increased from 0.9 to 1.2 million Euro
* Growth in core markets as well as in new markets
* First Browsergame ,War2Glory’ is live and promising
* License and distribution rights secured for more than 20 games
* Positive outlook of revenue and EBIT for full year 2010 as well as 2011

The Bob Mobile AG (WKN A0HHJR, ISIN DE000A0HHJR3) again showed strong
growth in the third quarter of 2010 and has thus further continued its
growth trend from the previous quarters. The consolidated group revenue in
the third quarter 2010 amounted to Euro 10.0 million (Euro 7.7 million in
Q2 2010), a plus of 30%. The Group revenue for the first three quarters
amounts to Euro 23.9 million (Euro 22.6 million in the first three quarters
2009). Growth was foremost generated from selling mobile services in
Germany as well as in newly launched countries. Only the Greek market
showed a revenue decline due to the depressed economic climate. It is
expected that the strong growth trend from the third quarter will be
continued in the fourth quarter 2010 as well.

The group EBIT also showed clear growth amounting to Euro 1.2 million in
the third quarter 2010 (Euro 0.9 in Q2 2010), a plus of 33%. The total
group EBIT for the first three quarters amounted to Euro 2.7 million (Euro
2.3 million in 2009). This is an increase of 17% even though the EBIT in
the third quarter was under pressure from increasing media budgets,
additional costs from launching new markets for the mobile value added
services and start-up cost of the newly founded games unit Just A Game
GmbH.

The group earnings before taxes (EBT) is with Euro 2.7 million almost
identical to the EBIT as costs for interest payments are very low. The
earnings per share for the first three quarters 2010 amount to 87 cent. All
figures are preliminary and are subject to validation by a certified
accountant.

Within the group especially the subsidiary Guerilla Mobile Berlin GmbH
(participation 50.2%) showed strong growth and consequently continued its
internationalization strategy: Israel and Hungary have been launched as new
territories and by the end of 2010 Guerilla Mobile will be active in 14
countries. Some of the newly launched countries are already adding to
growth. The Pink Adventure AG also focussed on growth in the third quarter,
via TV as well as via internet, while still concentrating on the German
market.

The in July 2010 newly founded subsidiary Just A Game GmbH has successfully
launched its first browsergame ,War2Glory’ -a free to play build & strategy
game. The technical implementation and the localization, as well as the
beta-phase of the game could be completed faster than expected so that the
game was commercially launched on November 10, 2010. ,War2Glory’ has been
developed in China and is already quite successful in the USA. Also the
first results in Germany are promising. Already in 2010 ,War2Glory’ will be
launched in further languages and markets. Also the license trading has
started well; over 20 titles have been contractually secured, a.o. strong
titles like ,Afterfall’, ,Hegemony’, ,GM Rally’ and ,Deep Black’. The Just
A Game GmbH is well on track to realize Euro 1 million revenues for 2010
according to plan and then show further strong growth in 2011.

Altogether the Bob Mobile group is well on track to realize the two digit
growth of revenue and earnings compared to the previous year, as planned.
Based on the first three quarters as well as on the first weeks of the
fourth quarter the group revenues for the full year 2010 are expected to
amount to more than Euro 37 million, the group EBIT is expected to amount
to more than Euro 4.5 million.

During the business year 2010 many activities have been optimized and
several have been prepared, causing start-up cost and having only little
impact on revenue growth. In 2011 these investments in new markets as well
as in the new area of browsergames shall according to plan lead to further
strong growth of revenues as well as of the EBIT.

Bob Mobile AG: EBIT-increase and revenue growth of 24% in Q2/2010

* Group-revenue increased from 6.2 to 7.7 million Euro
* Group-EBIT increased from 0.6 to 0.9 million Euro
* Growth in core markets as well as in new markets
* Newly founded games unit closes first contracts
* Two digit revenue and EBIT increase expected fort he full business year
2010

The Bob Mobile AG (WKN A0HHJR, ISIN DE000A0HHJR3) has further continued
it’s growth in the second quarter 2010 continuing the trend that was
already visible in the first quarter 2010. The consolidated group revenue
in the second quarter 2010 amounted to Euro 7.7 million (7.0 in Q2 2009).
In all business segments have been expanding, even the new business
segments that were launched this year were able to grow.

The group EBIT in the second quarter 2010 amounted to Euro 0.9 million,
clearly higher than EBIT in the second quarter of 2009 and well over the
first quarter 2010 (Ebit Q2 2009: Euro 0.0 million, Q1 2010: Euro 0.6
million). This is an even better result than the EBIT numbers reflect as
the media expenditures for customer acquisition have been increased during
this period as an investment in further growth. Overall an EBIT of 1.5
million Euro has been generated in the first halfyear. The Group Earnings
before taxes (EBT) is almost identical to the EBIT as cost for interest
payments are very low. The Earnings Per Share for H1 2010 amount to 70 Cent
(previous year: 0 Cent). All figures are preliminary and are subject to
validation by a certified accountant.

Within the group, the subsidiary Guerilla Mobile Berlin GmbH (participation
50,2%) consequently continued it’s internationalisation strategy. Newly
launched countries include a.o. Slowenia, Australia and Indonesia. Also
growth was generated in the existing markets Germany, Greece, Switzerland
and Austria, even though growth suffered from the good weather and the
world championship in the period mid until end of June. In the first half
of the year, the Pink Adventure AG further focused on digital as well as TV
related growth opportunities in the German market.

The Bob Mobile Group of companies expects to further continue it’s
profitable growth in the seasonally stronger second half of the year. Next
to current activities the newly founded Just A Game GmbH will also generate
first revenues in the third quarter 2010. At the gamescon in Cologne, the
Just A Game GmbH secured some promising licences in the previous week.

A reliable revenue and earnings outlook for the business year 2010 is
currently difficult to predict due to continued economic uncertainty as
well as the unpredictable developments on the financial markets. The Bob
Mobile Group of Companies expects however, based on the good H1 2010
figures, as well as the positive trend in the first weeks of the third
quarter 2010, for the full business year 2010, to realize a two digit
growth of revenue and earnings versus the previous year. This expectation
is based on the assumption that there will be no unexpected negative events
of major impact that affect the Group.

Bob Mobile AG: Entry into the growth market of online browser games

* Formation of the company ‘Just A Game GmbH’
* Entry into the growth market of online browser games
* Experienced management team
* Optimal use of synergies of Bob Mobile’s core competences in a new field
of business with a promising future
* Sales cooperation with Browsergames.de
* Substantial contribution to growth in sales and earnings planned
from 2011

Bob Mobile AG (WKN A0HHJR, ISIN DE000A0HHJR3), July 5, 2010 – With setting
up Just A Game GmbH, Bob Mobile AG opens up a new field of business in the
growth market of online browser games. The newly founded company, will
further complete Bob Mobile’s portfolio by the sales and marketing of
games, placing a special focus on the segment of multiplayer and social
games on the Internet and for mobile phones.

The market of online games including browser and social games is a strong
growth market where an average annual growth of 10.6 per cent is expected
for the coming years (source: PriceWaterhouseCoopers: Global Entertainment
and Media Outlook 2009 – 2013). Companies like Bigpoint, Gameforge and
Zynga operate very successfully already in the field of online games.
Presently, growth is mainly taking place on the internet, but owing to
convergence a strong growth may also be expected on the mobile Internet.

Just A Game GmbH concentrates on the sales and marketing of multiplayer and
social games, applying the proven free-to-play and item-selling business
model, already successfully used in this branch of business. High user
numbers are expected because the games will be easily accessible via the
browser and use will be offered free of charge. Monetarization will take
place by the sale of items in the game as well as subscriptions. The first
games are planned to be launched commercially in October 2010, and license
negotiations will soon be completed. What is more, the company will run a
license trade with games that will serve for the procurement of strong
online licenses for the company’s own end consumer distribution and for
marketing over a global network of partners.

By expanding its portfolio to a related field, an opportunity opens up for
Bob Mobile AG to use synergy effects and to utilize the established core
competence areas of online marketing as well as micropayment and technology
also in this field. An experienced team of about fifteen games experts is
striving to establish Just A Game GmbH successfully in the market of online
browser games within a short time. In addition, a strategic distribution
cooperation has been agreed with Covus GmbH & Co. KG who operates
www.Browsergames.de, one of the leading German online games portals.

Bob Mobile AG holds 68 per cent of the shares in Just A Game GmbH and will
fully consolidate the company. The remaining 32 per cent are reserved for
staff members and partners. For the business year 2010, Just A Game GmbH
will have a limited contribution to sales growth, with sales of less than
one million Euros. Yet it is planned that from the business year 2011 Just
A Game GmbH will make a substantial contribution to the sales growth of the
Bob Mobile group with a minimum sale of 5 million Euros annually. Growth
target for the net result of the Bob Mobile group in 2010 remain positive
as funds for start-up losses from new activities are contained in the
budget for the business year 2010. For 2010, the Bob Mobile group
continues to expect a two digit growth of revenue and earnings versus the
previous year. This expectation is based on the assumption that there will
be no unexpected negative events of major impact that affect the Group.

EBIT-increase and revenue growth of 22% in Q1/2010

* Group-EBIT-increased from 0 to 0,6 million Euro
* Very positive Group revenue development: +22 %
* New markets UK and Slovenia show substantial potential
* Two digit revenue and EBIT increase expected for the full business year
2010

The Bob Mobile AG, Straelen (WKN A0HHJR, ISIN DE000A0HHJR3) has further
strengthened it’s market position in the first quarter 2010 and continued
growth in line with the very successful business year 2009. The
consolidated group revenue in the first quarter amounted to Euro 6,2
million (5,1 in Q1 2009).

In all major markets there was growth. Also the new markets UK and Slovenia
added to growth and show great potential.

The group EBIT amounted to Euro 0,6 million, clearly higher than EBIT in
the first quarter of 2009 (Ebit Q1 2009: Euro 0,0 million). This is an even
better result than the EBIT numbers reflect as the media expenditures for
customer acquisition have been increased during this period as an
investment in further growth. The Group Earnings before taxes (EBT) is
almost identical to the EBIT as cost for interest payments are very low.
The Earnings Per Share for Q1 2010 amount to 30 Cent (previous year: 0
Cent). This shows the strong earning power of the business model that is
mostly based on subscriptions. The increased media expenditures for
customer acquisition as well as the cost for build-up of new markets, was
financed out of the cash flow. All figures are preliminary and are subject
to validation by a certified accountant

BOB MOBILE AG: Preliminary figures for 2009: strong increase of earnings to EUR 1.7 million with sales increasing to EUR 33 million. Positive outlook for 2010

Bob Mobile AG, Straelen (WKN A0HHJR, ISIN DE000A0HHJR3) significantly
exceeded its own expectations in the business year 2009. According to
preliminary figures sales and earnings have grown substantially at group
level with consolidated group sales of EUR 33 million (2008: EUR 12.6
million, +162%) in fiscal 2009, EBIT amounts to EUR 4.4 million. Net income
at Group level amounted to EUR 3.0 million. Excluding minority interests,
net consolidated group earnings at Group level amount to EUR 1.7 million
(2008: EUR 0.5 million, +240%). All subsidiaries have been fully included
in the group results for the fiscal year 2009 based on full consolidation
methodology. All figures are preliminary and have not yet been testified.
Final figures for the business year 2009 are expected in early June.

Within the group, in particular, the subsidiary Guerrilla Mobile Berlin
GmbH (50.2% participation) developed very positively and represented with
EUR 19 million for nearly 2/3 of total Group sales (fiscal year 2008: EUR
0.46 million sales, non consolidated). From 01 September 2009 all sales and
marketing of mobile entertainment products have been bundled within this
subsidiary. The Pink Adventure AG (100% participation) showed strong
revenue growth and realized in the business year 2009 for the first time a
positive result. The Venga Mobile GmbH (100% participation) has further
developed as a service company and contributed through improvements in the
technical area substantially to the group’s growth. imobic GmbH (100%
participation), a new subsidiary founded in 2009 managed to organize its
first competition; nevertheless an initial loss has been generated,
resulting in a loss of EUR 0.6 million for the business year 2009.

While during 2008, the growth has been strongly negative affected by the
economic crisis and by the in-sourcing of technology, in 2009 synergetic
effects had a positive effect. The group proprietary technical platform
proved it’s scalability at high volumes and internationalisation. The
demand for mobile products increased significantly and Bob Mobile was able
to gain significant market shares from less successful and less flexible
competitors.

Thanks to the favourable developments, it is expected that a similar level
of dividends will be proposed to the annual shareholder meeting as in the
previous year. The Group had a headcount of 60 at 31 December 2009.

Outlook 2010: The Bob Mobile Group is well positioned and will continue to
consistently pursue its internationalization strategy. For the business
year 2010 Bob Mobile expects a 10% minimum growth of revenue and earnings.
