The Company is being represented in this matter by Morgan Chu of Irell & Manella, LLP and Thomas R. Curtin of McElroy, Deutsch, Mulvaney & Carpenter, LLP.

The action seeks the recovery of damages and other appropriate relief.

Tom Rogers, Executive Chairman of Engine Media, stated, "This action, which follows our recent action against DraftKings, is a continuation of our efforts to enforce our extensive portfolio of patents, many of which relate to mobile sports betting and online gaming technologies. We will continue assessing how we can protect our intellectual property."
