Following the approval of the transaction by BBI's shareholders at the Combined General Meeting on July 22, 2022, the exceptional distribution in kind of Nacon shares to BBI's shareholders is effective as of today, the date of the payment.

Following this transaction, BBI will hold 56,616,004 Nacon shares, i.e. 65.59 % of the share capital and 75.15 % of the voting rights.

The distribution of Nacon shares to BBI shareholders is made on the basis of one (1) Nacon share for every four (4) Bigben Interactive shares held, in accordance with the terms and conditions of the transaction announced by the Company in the press release published on 17 June 2022.

Based on the opening price of Nacon shares on the regulated market of Euronext Paris on July 29 2022, i.e. EUR 5.66, and the number of Nacon shares distributed (excluding treasury shares), equal to 4,628,662 the total amount of the exceptional distribution in kind amounts to EUR 25,735,360.72 i.e. EUR 1.39 per Bigben share.

As a result, the amount of the distribution in kind of EUR 1,39 per share of the Company includes:

- EUR 1.10 of distributed income, and
