Bragg to embark on strategic review of the overall organization

TORONTO, Nov. 15, 2021 /CNW/ - Global gaming technology and content provider Bragg Gaming Group (NASDAQ: BRAG) (TSXV: BRAG), ("Bragg" or the "Company") announces today that Paul Godfrey, Chair of the Board of Directors, has been appointed to the role of Interim CEO of Bragg Gaming, effective November 15, 2021. Bragg founder and former Interim CEO Adam Arviv will take on the role of Special Advisor to the Chair and CEO. Oryx founder and Vice Chair of the Board of Directors of Bragg Matevž Mazij will also play an integral role in the organization. Richard Carter will step down from the CEO role, effective immediately.

The Board of Bragg Gaming has made the decision to embark upon a strategic review of the overall Company, including the immediate restructuring of the CEO role. The Company's exceptional performance over the past six quarters includes consistently exceeding revenue and growth targets. While peers continue to trade and transact at significantly higher multiples, Bragg's continued strong growth has yet to be reflected in the Company's public market performance, and the Board has determined that a search for new CEO is required.

Paul Godfrey, Chair of the Board of Bragg, has agreed to take on the role of CEO until a replacement is named. Mr. Godfrey is a renowned business leader and Canadian politician, recently holding the role of President and CEO of Postmedia Network and continuing to act as Chair of Postmedia, a company he founded. Mr. Godfrey also previously held the roles of Publisher and CEO of Sun Media and President and CEO of the Toronto Blue Jays. He is a recipient of the Order of Canada and of the Order of Ontario.

"While the global online gaming industry continues to grow exponentially, the North American opportunity is a game changer," said Mr. Godfrey. "Bragg's technology and content is well-positioned to take advantage of this new market's potential and although Bragg's operations have continued to outperform over recent quarters, the capital markets strategy has not translated into shareholder value. Developing this alignment will be our top priority and absolutely requires a strategic review."
