The SportsHub Games Network is a Robust Player Activation and
Monetization Platform Delivering Premium Games and Contests to Devoted
Sports Fans

As part of its ongoing commitment to build and grow sports products
enjoyed by hundreds of thousands of sports fans every day, SportsHub
Games Network, Inc. ("SportsHub") has announced today the launch of
their player activation and monetization platform, SportsHub Games
Network ("SHGN"). SHGN is a completely reimagined network of sites
bundled with promotion, monetization and compliance services designed to
serve the $7 billion fantasy sports market.

"The regulatory environment for the fantasy sports industry has changed
drastically over the course of the past two years," said Rob Phythian,
Founder and CEO of SportsHub. "Companies are now required to be licensed
in many states, and the cost and requirements of compliance have become
burdensome and prohibitive for companies with limited resources. With
our integrated platform that manages user identity, monetization, and
compliance, we can bring even more compelling experiences and an
unparalleled breadth and quality of gaming services and content to our

SHGN will provide SportsHub and its partners the ability to easily
integrate player activation and monetization technology to their
existing portfolio of games and contests, including utilizing
SportsHub's expertise in real money gaming and compliance to increase
player liquidity and financial performance. The SHGN foundation is built
on five core components:

  • Accounting: A shared electronic system that provides
    transactional oversight and transparency, facilitates entry fee
    payments and prize payouts, and allows users to participate in
    contests across the SportsHub Games Network;
  • Compliance: A compliance engine that includes meticulous
    administration and reporting procedures to comply with Federal and
    state laws and regulations;
  • User Identity: An identity server that manages a single
    registration and authentication process across our network;
  • Marketing: A suite of marketing tools like banner ads, e-mail
    announcements, push notifications, and integrated marketing to
    cross-promote products and services;
  • Reporting: The platform also provides all of the needed
    analytical tools and reports required for the sports gaming industry
    to measure and optimize funnels and increase profits by redistributing
    advertising channels.

In addition, veteran technology executive Krish Dasgupta has joined
SportsHub from ESPN, where he was the Vice President of Advanced
Development, to serve as the Company's CTO and oversee SHGN.

"As SportsHub continues to develop new products and diversifies its
portfolio, we're excited to bring on an engineering leader in Krish who
can evolve our platform and help capture the immense opportunity in the
sports gaming sector," said Phythian. "Krish's experience leading global
engineering teams, building world-class software and deserved reputation
as an innovative thinker make him a tremendous fit to help lead
SportsHub's next phase of accelerated growth. I'm delighted to
officially welcome Krish on board and look forward to his contributions
to SportsHub's continued success."

"We're incredibly excited to be sharing these details about the
SportsHub Games Network," said Dasgupta. "I left ESPN to join a company
that would fundamentally change the way we create, network, promote, and
monetize sports games and content. SportsHub's rapidly evolving
marketplace presents unique opportunities, and the long-term potential
for the company is impressive. The talent across the organization --
particularly the commitment to excellence on the product and engineering
teams -- will allow us to build even more amazing experiences for
customers and partners."

SportsHub will continue to grow through both organic growth and M&A and
anticipates several additional announcements in the future. Dasgupta's
hire is the latest in a string of senior leaders joining SportsHub to
help create products and services for all sports fans. SportsHub
previously added top talent to its roster through the acquisitions CDM
Sports and Sports Technologies in 2016. It followed those initial deals
with the acquisitions of LeagueSafe, National Fantasy Championships,
WhatIfSports and MFL10s in 2017.
