- Higher spending for lobbying activities and legal consultancy
- Increased investment in other European countries

With the approval of the Supervisory Board, the Management Board of FLUXX
AG (ISIN DE000A0JRU67) today passed a supplementary budget of up to one
million euros that was not previously included in the plans for the 2006
financial year. The purpose of the additional budget is to support a
campaign by the Federation of Lottery Agents against the planned
ratification of the State Treaty on gaming by the Prime Ministers of the
German federal states.

The Management Board confirms its forecast of revenue growth of between 110
and 130 percent. The consolidated earnings for 2006 as a whole will,
however, be clearly negative, in the region of EUR –2.5 million to EUR –3.5
million. The original aim had been to break even.

In the light of the current political and legal debate on the future shape
of the German gaming market, from now on FLUXX AG will furthermore be
investing increasingly in those EU countries whose gaming markets are
already liberalised.

According to provisional calculations, the increased expenditure for
lobbying activities and legal consultancy already diminished earnings in
the recently completed third quarter of 2006: with revenue amounting to EUR
11.8 million, the consolidated earnings for the third quarter were EUR –1.0
million. Cumulatively the FLUXX Group was able to boost its revenue by 114
percent to EUR 35.3 million in the first nine months of 2006, but the
nine-month earnings fell from EUR 1.0 million in 2005 to EUR –1.8 million
in 2006 due to the increased costs.
