Overview Gaming Corps is a company with a skilled team who have solid experience of the two sides of the sector, i.e. gaming and gambling. The Company will capitalise on the contacts it has made in the sector, with the aim of rapidly establishing the next major games-oriented enterprise, based in Uppsala, Sweden. The first product will be Air, a game tie-in to the upcoming film from the creators of the TV success The Walk-ing Dead. Gaming Corps has an explicit focus on consistently working with some of the world’s largest brands and intellectual property (IP) rights, particularly in Hollywood. With well-known li-censed IP rights, Gaming Corps has good prospects of creating revenue streams both from gam-ing and (through cooperation with casino platform suppliers and gambling operators) from gam-bling, based on the same rights. company will also develop and market mobile games in other genres to reduce business risk and build the largest possible user base. Gaming Corps has good prospects of entering into additional agreements with major game pub-lishers and platform owners to engage in pre-financed commissions to develop games. The com-pany sees this as an excellent way of reducing business risk, since commissions of this kind nor-mally provide a stable cash flow over 18– 24 months and simultaneously generate potential for attracting top elite Swedish games developers as employers. Successful social casino apps are commonly found among the bestsellers in app stores (Apple, Android) and, in many cases, have millions of users. Although a player’s ‘lifetime value’ (LTV) averages only a couple of dollars, the massive volume generates good income streams for suc-cessful titles. In some markets, casino players who play for real money and make deposits may have an LTV of well over USD 1,000. Gaming Corps’s own game titles cater mainly for PC, console and mobile platforms. Alongside social casino apps for app stores, the Current projects Gaming Corps is in partnership with Skybound, with the ambition of creating games from sever-al of their IP rights. Skybound, based in Los Angeles, is best known as the creator of The Walking Dead. Gambling Mobile IPR PC/ STEAM AAA AIR Gaming Corps has licensed game rights to Skybound’s (The Walking Dead etc.) upcoming major film AIR. This adventure game is currently being produced in Uppsala, entirely under Gaming Corps management. However, there is an opportunity for a co-publisher to buy into the project along the way, for shared risk and upside. In pure business terms, the game will be sold as epi-sodes. This is a concept with which Skybound has previously achieved great successes jointly with the Telltale games studio. EEDAR, the renowned game research company, has drawn up a sales forecast for the game that, in an intermediate sales scenario, gives it some USD 13 million in sales revenues for the PC ver-sion alone (with additional console income) for the first six episodes. These will be released monthly, starting in August 2015. Riddick Gaming Corps has publishing rights to the mobile game Riddick: The Merc Files. This game, re-launched with improved graphics and playing experience in January 2015, is expected to be one of the launch titles in the graphics card producer Nvidia’s range of gaming tablets and its own app store. The actor Vin Diesel has done voice-overs and the game is thought to be transferable, with only a small outlay, to PCs for launch on Steam. Casino games Gaming Corps has begun work on the proof of concept for the title, with shared IP rights, on so-cial casino apps (mobile platforms, the Web and Facebook) and a real-money slot. Negotiations are under way with casino platform suppliers for development, and inclusion in their product range for casino operators, based on graphics and IP rights provided by Gaming Corps. After the launch, Gaming Corps will have revenue streams from three different sources: play money, real money and super affiliates. Gaming Corps’s long-term strategy in PC and console games (and also mobile games) is to own and publish the games in-house for optimal upside. Collaboration with Skybound is an important piece of the puzzle of how to successfully build a profitable portfolio of game titles over time. The gaming markets The global gaming market was worth some USD 70 billion in 2013 and is expected to grow to a value of USD 86bn by 2016. Mobile platforms account for the most rapid growth and are fore-cast to make up roughly 28% of the market in 2016. The global market for online gambling was worth an estimated EUR 26bn in 2013 and is ex-pected to grow by around 10% a year between now and 2016, when its value will thus be about EUR 35bn. Casino games and especially slots (one-armed bandits) are well suited for playing on mobile platforms and are a growth segment of the gambling market.

Foto: Angelica Klang CEO’s review Nicklas Dunham, CEO, is probably Sweden’s most successful person in terms of both the number of his commissions to develop video games and their aggregate development budgets, for companies like Starbreeze, Grin and Stillfront (10 titles with a total value of some USD 80 million). In a short time, Gaming Corps AB has generated stunning opportunities. We are in partnership with Skybound in the US and have already embarked on the first joint development project for a game tie-in entitled AIR. It is a tremendous thrill to have Robert Kirkman, creator of The Walking Dead, involved in the process. The initial launch of the game AIR is planned to take place via the STEAM distribution platform and reach app stores via mobile platforms. AIR will also be a fea-ture film with Sony Pictures as its distributor, which will facilitate marketing and sale of the game. What is more, AIR is Gaming Corps’s first reference project in which a licensed brand (IP right) also provides a bridge to the part of the gaming industry in which playing for money is the cen-tral element. AIR will therefore also be launched as a slot (one-armed bandit) game online, through a casino platform supplier who, in turn, delivers the game to affiliated game operators. It feels wrong to describe this future income stream as passive, but from a legal point of view it is important to emphasise that this is so. Gaming Corps needs no gaming licences and will receive a percentage of the net gaming profits. In the course of my career in the gaming industry, I have accumulated a large contact network. It used to be a matter of helping other companies to capitalise on the contacts I made as an em-ployee or hired consultant for Starbreeze, Stillfront or Grin, for example. (The people behind Grin then started Overkill, and became the new principal owners of Starbreeze after acquiring Overkill: the industry is gigantic, but sometimes feels like a small world.) With Gaming Corps I am, if anything, even keener to be able to deliver, which is obviously in line with creating share-holder value for all the shareholders in Gaming Corps AB. We welcome you as a shareholder in Uppsala’s next major gaming company.
