Sales continue to be driven by the worldwide success of Gameloft games on
smartphones and tablets. Gameloft's first-half sales on smartphones and tablets
grew by 45% year on year. They represented 61% of total Group sales compared
with 48% in the first half of 2012.

Gameloft's rapid growth is also driven by the success of virtual goods and
advertising which currently account for 80% of the company's smartphone
revenues.

This business model increases the longevity of the company's products. Games
dating from 2011 and 2012 such as Ice Age Village, Modern Combat 4: Zero Hour,
World at Arms, MY LITTLE PONY, Order & Chaos Online, and Six-Guns have
contributed to the solid performance of the company in the first six months of
2013.

The free-to-play model enables Gameloft to reach much larger audiences as well.
In the last 30 days, no less than 125 million people have played a Gameloft 
game on their smartphone or tablet.

The recent and upcoming launches of several potential blockbusters should allow
company sales to continue to grow in the coming quarters. Gameloft's latest
release, Despicable Me: Minion Rush, is a major success worldwide. With more
than 65 million downloads since its launch last June, Despicable Me: Minion 
Rush is currently ranked in the Top 10 Grossing of 41 countries on iOS, 
including the US and the UK.

The company targets between EUR235 million and EUR240 million in sales for the
full year of 2013, as well as an increase of profitability and net cash.

The Group's consolidated first-half results will be published on September 10,
2013, after the market closes.
