JAXX SE, Kiel, has entered into firm negotiations with a group of investors
on the sale of the investment holdings and assets of its lottery business.
A corresponding letter of intent was signed today between the Management
Board of JAXX SE and the group of investors.

The lottery operations, which comprise the companies JAXX GmbH (Hamburg),
JAXX GmbH (Lustenau, Austria), Vendo Spielsysteme GmbH (Lustenau, Austria),
fluxx.com Telewette GmbH (Hamburg), JAXX UK Ltd. (London, GB) as well as
certain assets of other group companies, are to be sold to the group of
investors with economic effect from January 1, 2012. The target is to
complete the transaction by the end of February 2012. The sale also
includes the JAXX domains, JAXX brands and rights relating to the name
JAXX, though the change in the name of the disposing parent company JAXX SE
is subject to the approval of its Shareholders' Meeting. Spanish lottery
business, which is operated by the 70 percent owned subsidiary DIGIDIS
S.L., Madrid, is not part of the transaction.

The price being targeted is EUR 12.5 million. It is subject to the findings
of due diligence, which will now start. The cash inflows from the
transaction are largely earmarked for financing the capital expenditure
plans for the next few years for sports betting, casino and poker business,
on which the JAXX Group has focused.
