Growth continued to be strong in the first quarter. Revenues increased by 41.0
percent in local currency compared to the first quarter 2009 and 7.7 percent
compared to the previous quarter. The strengthened Swedish currency has held
back revenue growth in SEK and has had a significant effect on financial items.

Gioco Digitale, a wholly owned subsidiary of bwin, the world’s largest listed
online operator, signed an agreement for delivery of CasinoModule to both
Gioco Digitale and to bwin’s Italian site

The regulatory frame work for the Italian market was published in late March,
which is later than expected. The integration has been ongoing during the
quarter and continues together with the licensing process for existing games.

Despite that no large operators were launched during the first quarter,
revenues have increased significantly compared to the previous quarter which
emphasizes the continued strong underlying market growth. The weakened Euro
towards the Swedish Krona had a negative impact on the increase in local
currency during the same period. The increased gaming activity has continued
during the second quarter which together with a number of not yet launched Tier
1 operators creates good conditions for future strong growth.

The sales success of several new Tier 1 operators is very pleasing. It is the
result of our focus on quality and high entertainment value. In order to manage
the increase of new operators, we continue to develop the company and
strengthen the organization, which creates room to focus on business
opportunities and at the same time meet the increased demands as the market

The increased development pace of both the games and the platform has resulted
in an increase in capitalized development costs. These are also affected by the
development process of adjusting CasinoModule to meet the regulation
requirements in Italy, a market that is expected to be important to us in the
future. In addition, the games are becoming more complex and require a more
intense development cycle. Games such as “Gonzo’s Quest”, which was launched
during the first quarter are important to secure our position as a premium
supplier. The higher development costs for this type of game are however
compensated by higher revenues.

While regulation of the Italian gaming market continues, it is somewhat delayed
by the pace of the Italian gaming authority (AAMS). Net Entertainment is well
positioned and the procedure of meeting the authorities requirements are
commencing according to plan. We have so far signed agreements with the two
largest gaming operators in Italy, who together control approximately half the
market. The casino operation is expected to launch after the first half of the

During the quarter the agreement with Bonnier was extended, who launched its
online casino “”. Bonnier’s entry onto the market for online gaming
is interesting and we will likely see more media companies and other operators
enter as further markets are regulated.
