    Sales (EURm)              2011          2010      Variation
    First Quarter             39,5          33,0        +20%

The company’s growth remained strong during the first three months of
2011. This growth was driven by sales in emerging countries and by the
massive success of Gameloft games on smartphones and tablets around the
world. Gameloft first quarter sales on all smartphones and tablets grew by
56% year on year and represented 28% of total consolidated sales.

Recent and future releases of high-performance smartphones and tablets,
from such companies as Apple, Google, Samsung, Nokia, LG, Sony-Ericsson
should continue sustaining Gameloft’s growth in the upcoming quarters.
Additionally, the release of new gaming platforms, such as social networks,
Smart TVs and next generation set top boxes allows Gameloft to continue its
diversification on other devices and provides the company with strong growth
opportunities. Gameloft just released one of its flagship franchises in an
original Facebook version titled N.O.V.A. Near Orbit Vanguard Alliance:
Elite. This game is the first FPS franchise from the video games industry to
be developed specifically for this social network.

Therefore, Gameloft is expecting continued revenue and profitability
growth in 2011. In the long term, the company appears to be in an ideal
position to benefit from the rapid emergence of the digital distribution of
video games on mobile phones, tablets, social networks, TVs and consoles.

The Group’s consolidated second quarter sales will be published on August
1st, 2011
, after the market closes.
