GAME DIGITAL PLC

Notification and public disclosure of transactions by persons discharging managerial responsibilities and persons closely associated with them in accordance with the Market Abuse Regulation.

Game Digital plc (the "Company") announces the exercise of nil cost option awards (the "Awards") granted under the rules of Game Digital plc Performance Share plan (the "PSP") on 15 July 2019.

On 5 June 2019, Sports Direct International plc ("Sports Direct") announced, pursuant to Rule 2.7 of the City Code on Takeovers and Mergers (the "Takeover Code"), that it had unconditionally agreed to acquire 14,869,666 ordinary shares of 1 pence each in the capital of the Company and as a result was required under Rule 9 of the Takeover Code to make a mandatory cash offer to acquire the entire issued ordinary share capital of the Company other than shares already held by Sports Direct (or any persons acting in concert with it) (the "Offer").

In accordance with the rules of the PSP, the Remuneration Committee and the Board met and determined the extent to which any outstanding Awards would vest in the event of a change of control as a result of the Offer. 

Certain of the outstanding Awards subsequently vested and became exercisable on 9 July 2019, following an announcement by Sports Direct earlier the same day declaring the Offer for the Company unconditional in all respects.

Below details the exercise of the Awards to acquire ordinary shares of 1 pence each in the capital of the Company, made under the PSP, on the London Stock Exchange on 15 July 2019 and notified to GAME Digital plc on 15 July 2019.

The relevant notifications set out below are provided in accordance with the requirements of Article 19 of the EU Market Abuse Regulation.
