Swedish Tax Agency announces decision on additional tax – Net Entertainment appeals

In line with previous communication, the Swedish Tax Agency has now announced
its decision to impose additional taxes on Net Entertainment NE AB. Net
Entertainment maintains that the Swedish Tax Agency’s decision is unfounded and
will appeal the decision.

After a tax audit in Net Entertainment NE AB concerning fiscal years 2007-2010,
the Swedish Tax Agency has announced its decision to impose additional taxes on
Net Entertainment in the amount of approximately 92.1 MSEK. The amount that was
previously announced was 88.1 MSEK. The difference is due to an error in the
previous audit memorandum from the Swedish Tax Agency and imposed interest.

The Swedish Tax Agency states in its’ decision that the transfer pricing that
has been applied between the Swedish based parent company Net Entertainment NE
AB and the Malta-based operations is not motivated. Thus, the Swedish Tax
Agency gives certain agreements between companies within the Net Entertainment
Group a different legal interpretation and economic substance than what Net
Entertainment and it’s expert advisors PwC and the law firm Lindahl do.

As has been communicated previously, Net Entertainment disputes the assessment
that the Swedish Tax Agency has done and consequently also the amounts as it
relates to the income tax adjustment and the tax surcharges. Net Entertainment
insists that it has followed applicable laws for taxation of its operations,
which is also supported by the experts that the Company has consulted on the

Net Entertainment has its sales, market and product strategic functions as well
as customer support and hosting located mainly in Malta, where the Company has
a license to conduct its business, while the Groups function for mainly
development is based in Sweden. Net Entertainment pays taxes according to the
applicable laws and based on the operations that are conducted in each country

The Company will appeal the Swedish Tax Agency’s decision. Net Entertainment
does not currently see grounds to make a provision in the accounts for possible
additional taxes related to this matter.
