PR Newswire/Les Echos/

Record Fourth Quarter Sales of EUR47.0 million, Up 18%
Full-Year Sales Reach EUR164.4 million, Up 17%

Paris (France), February 1, 2012 - Gameloft achieved consolidated sales of
EUR47.0 million during the fourth quarter of 2011, up by 18% from the previous
year. On a constant exchange rate basis, the fourth-quarter growth was 20%.

The significant success enjoyed by recently launched games such as Modern 
Combat 3: Fallen Nation, Gangstar Rio: City of Saints, Six-Guns and Dungeon 
Hunter 3 has resulted in solid sequential growth in the fourth quarter of 2011.

In EUR millions         FY2011      FY2010     Variation

1st Quarter              39.5        33.0        +20%

2nd Quarter              37.4        33.6        +11%

3rd Quarter              40.6        34.7        +17%

4th Quarter              47.0        39.7        +18%

12-Month Total          164.4       141.0        +17%

In 2011, Gameloft consolidated sales reached EUR164.4 million, up by 17% year 
on year. Europe represented 30% of the company's sales, North America 29% and 
the rest of the world 41%. On a constant exchange rate basis, full-year growth 
was 19% compared with 13% in 2010.

This growth continues to be driven by sales in emerging countries and by the
massive success of Gameloft games on smartphones and tablets around the world.
Gameloft's fourth-quarter sales on smartphones and tablets grew by 64% year on
year and represented 41% of total sales.

The dynamism of the smartphone and tablet market, driven by the success of 
Apple and Android, should continue sustaining Gameloft's growth in the upcoming
quarters. Therefore, Gameloft is expecting solid top-line growth in 2012.

In the long term, the company appears to be in an ideal position to benefit 
from the rapid growth of the digital distribution of video games on mobile 
phones, tablets, next-generation set-top boxes and smart TVs.

Gameloft's 2011 annual results will be published on March 21, 2012, after the
market closes.
