Third-Quarter Smartphone Sales Up 124% 
Full-Year Sales expected overEUR205M in 2012

Paris (France), November 5, 2012 - Gameloft achieved record revenues of EUR55.4
million in the third quarter of 2012. Growth remained very strong in the third
quarter, reaching 37%. On a constant exchange rate basis, growth for the third
quarter was 33%. North America represented 32% of the company's quarterly sales;
EMEA, 26%; APAC, 22%; and LATAM, 19%.

Over the first nine months of 2012, Gameloft achieved consolidated sales 
of EUR150.6 million, up 28% year on year. On a constant exchange rate basis, 
growth for the first nine months was 26%.

In million EUR         2012    2011    Variation
1st Quarter           44.8     39.5      +14%
2nd Quarter           50.4     37.4      +35%
3rd Quarter           55.4     40.6      +37%
First Nine Months    150.6    117.4      +28%

Third-quarter sales were driven by the massive success of Gameloft games on
smartphones and tablets. Gameloft's third-quarter sales on smartphones and
tablets grew by 124% year on year and represented 56% of total sales compared 
to only 34% in the same period in 2011.

The strong acceleration of growth enjoyed by Gameloft's smartphone activity 
in the last two quarters is related to the success of the freemium and paymium
models put in place by the company in March 2011. Gameloft's number of monthly
active users currently stands at 56 million and 60% of the company's smartphone
revenues derive from in-app purchases and advertising revenues.

The strong growth of smartphone and tablet shipments around the world should
continue to sustain Gameloft's growth in the coming quarters. In addition, the
upcoming release of many new high-profile games such as Modern Combat 4: Zero
Hour, Zombiewood, Heroes of Order & Chaos, My Little Pony, PLAYMOBIL Pirates,
UNO(tm) & Friends should allow solid top-line growth in the final quarter of 
the year. Therefore the company now targets a little over EUR205 million in 
sales for the full year of 2012, up more than 25% year on year.

The Group's fourth-quarter sales will be published on January 29, 2013, after
the market closes.
