Newgioco Provides Update on Impact of Coronavirus

Newgioco Group, Inc. ("Newgioco” or the "Company”) (Nasdaq: NWGI), a global sports betting and interactive gaming technology company providing fully integrated, omni-channel sports betting software solutions, today provided an update on the impact of the COVID-19 virus on its operations.

As result of the global outbreak of the COVID-19 virus, on March 8, 2020 the Italian government imposed certain restrictions on public gatherings and travel until April 3, 2020. Accordingly, the Company has temporarily closed approximately 150 betting shop locations throughout Italy. Subsequently, on March 10, 2020 the Italian government imposed further restrictions on travel throughout Italy as well as transborder crossings that may negatively impact the Company’s operating results and hamper our efforts to meet filing deadlines. The closing of physical locations does not affect the Company’s online and mobile business operations; however, most professional sports events have been either postponed or cancelled which may have an effect on our overall sports betting handle and revenues. The impact, extent and duration of the government imposed restrictions on travel, public gatherings and sports events as well as the overall effect of the COVID-19 virus is presently unknown.

"We are closely monitoring the active circumstances and the impact of COVID-19 on our product demand and business. Our priority is protecting our employees, supporting our customers and providing timely information to our investors and stockholders,” stated Company Chairman and CEO, Michele Ciavarella. "Along with our management teams in Italy and Austria, we remain in close contact with local and national health authorities and have implemented notification and prevention procedures at our administration offices and physical locations. Also, the Company is pro-actively taking the health and safety of our employees very seriously by implementing smart-work initiatives by encouraging, when and where possible, work from home options.”

Ciavarella continued, "although we have been directly affected by government directives to close all non-essential public gathering venues, which includes all betting shops and bingo halls throughout Italy, the Company has recently taken significant steps to expand our global distribution in over 13 countries and have diversified our product offerings as well as fostering the omni-channel features of our Elys betting platform. While uncertainty remains around our ability to implement cost containment, the severity and pace of recovery strategies on our business and the market price of our common stock following the COVID-19 outbreak, our long-term fundamentals remain strong. We are continuing with planned investments, particularly in developing our U.S. betting platform and products to drive long-term growth and profitability for our shareholders.”

The Company will provide further updates to our financial reports, including earnings and cash flow from operations, during the second quarter of fiscal 2020 based on information available at that time.
