(“Playtika”) regarding its non-binding indicative proposal to acquire all issued and outstanding shares of Rovio at a proposed price of EUR 9.05 per share (the “Indicative Proposal”), corresponding to a premium of approximately 60% to the closing price of Rovio share on Nasdaq Helsinki on 19 January 2023.

The Indicative Proposal that contemplates the making of a cash tender offer by Playtika is subject to a number of pre-conditions including, but not limited to, satisfactory completion of due diligence, final approval from Playtika’s Board of Directors, a unanimous and unqualified recommendation from the Board of Rovio as well as negotiation and entry into a combination agreement between Rovio and Playtika. Completion of any such cash tender offer would pursuant to the Indicative Proposal be subject to further conditions, including, but not limited to, approval by Rovio shareholders holding at least 90% of the shares of Rovio, and receipt of all necessary regulatory approvals.

At this time, Rovio is not engaged in any negotiations with Playtika. The Board of Rovio is evaluating the Indicative Proposal and will determine whether and how to proceed with it.
