GIG: Gaming Innovation Group completes acquisition of KaFe Rocks, solidifying leadership in Casino affiliation

08:11 / 21 December 2023 Gaming Innovation Group Press release

Gaming Innovation Group Inc. (GiG) is pleased to announce the successful
completion of its acquisition of KaFe Rocks Ltd., a prominent affiliate leader
in the iGaming industry, ref. announcement from GiG on 7 November 2023. This
strategic move positions GiG's media division, GiG Media, as the dominant force
in online casino affiliation and reinforces the business' foothold in the
lucrative North American market.

Building on the success of the AskGamblers acquisition, GiG Media is poised to
drive substantial growth for KaFe Rocks assets post-acquisition, leveraging its
proprietary media and marketing technology. The synergies between the two
entities are expected to result in a minimum revenue of MEUR 23 in 2024 for the
acquired KaFe Rocks assets, with an EBITDA margin exceeding 45%, translating to
a 2024 EV/EBITDA multiple of approximately 3.6x for the acquisition.

Jonas Warrer, Group CEO of GiG, expressed his satisfaction with the completion
of the acquisition, stating, "Our goal is to maintain our position as the
leading casino affiliate in the industry and to expand further in the North
American market. The inclusion of KaFe Rocks aligns perfectly with these
objectives. We've identified a thriving business led by an exceptionally skilled
team. We eagerly anticipate integrating KaFe Rocks into the GiG family,
unlocking additional business value to benefit our partners and investors."

The acquisition will further accelerate the diversification of GiG Media's
business, a key strategic goal for the company, mitigating overall risk by
having more customers, websites, and markets to drive revenue growth going
forward.

The transaction, valued at MEUR 35, includes a MEUR 15 upfront cash payment and
MEUR 20 distributed in four semi-annual payments over 24 months. Additionally,
GiG may issue MEUR 2.5 in GiG shares to the sellers in Q1 2024, subject to
specific operational cost savings targets being met by year-end 2023, where the
number of shares to be issued shall be based on a 30-day VWAP of the GiG share
at the time of closing. KaFe Rocks' assets will be consolidated as of today.
