Paris (France), November 4, 2013 - Gameloft achieved record revenues of 
EUR61.7 million during the third quarter of 2013, up by 11% from the previous 
year. On a constant-exchange-rate basis, the thirdquarter growth was 17%. EMEA 
represented 31% of third-quarter sales; North America, 32%; LATAM, 20%; 
and APAC, 16%.

Over the first nine months of 2013, Gameloft achieved consolidated sales of 
EUR171.0 million, up 14% year on year. On a constant-exchange-rate basis, 
growth for the first nine months was 17%.

Sales (EUR million)            2013     2012    Variation

First Nine Months             171.0    150.6      +14%

Sales continue to be driven by the worldwide success of Gameloft games on
smartphones and tablets. Gameloft's third quarter sales on smartphones and
tablets grew by 31% year on year. They represented 69% of total Group sales
compared with 58% in the third quarter of 2012.

Gameloft's rapid growth is also driven by the success of the free-to-play
business model: sales of virtual goods and advertising currently account for 
80% of the company's smartphone revenues. This free-toplay model enables 
Gameloft to reach very large audiences. In the last 30 days, no less than 140 
million people have played a Gameloft game on their smartphone or tablet. This 
model also increases the longevity of the company's products. Games launched 
prior to 2013 accounted for more than 80% of the company's revenues in the 
first nine months of 2013.

The company therefore confirms its target to reach 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 2013 annual sales will be published on January 28, 2014, after the
market closes.
