Unibet Group plc: Bulletin from Unibet Group plc's Annual General Meeting

Today, at the Annual General Meeting, shareholders approved the
proposed cash dividend of GBP 0.235 (equivalent to SEK 2.70 on 8
April 2016 exchange rates and payable in SEK). This will be paid to
owners of shares/SDRs, on the register on the Euroclear Sweden AB
record date of 19 May 2016. The dividend is expected to be
distributed by Euroclear Sweden AB on 24 May 2016 and the exact
amount in SEK will be determined by the exchange rate on 19 May 2016.

The ex-dividend date of the cash dividend is 18 May 2016.

Kristofer Arwin, Sophia Bendz, Peter Boggs, Nigel Cooper, Peter Friis,
Therese Hillman, Stefan Lundborg and Anders Ström were re-elected as
Directors of the Company.

In addition, at the Annual General Meeting, the resolution to pay a
total fee of GBP 687,000 to Directors elected at the AGM, who are not
employed by the Company, was also approved by Shareholders.

The Annual General Meeting also resolved that, until the general
meeting of the shareholders decides otherwise, the Nomination
Committee shall consist of not less than four and not more than five
members, of which one shall be the Chairman of the Board of
Directors. The members of the Nomination Committee shall represent
all shareholders and be appointed by the four largest shareholders at
the end of August 2016 having expressed their willingness to
participate in the Nomination Committee. Should one of these
shareholders appoint the Chairman of the Board of Directors as its
member, the Nomination Committee shall consist of four members. The
other three members shall be appointed by each of the other three of
the four largest shareholders expressing their willingness to
participate in the Nomination Committee within one week from that
they are asked. The appointment of a member of the Nomination
Committee shall state which shareholder has appointed that member.
Should one of the four largest shareholders waive its right to
appoint a member of the Nomination Committee, the opportunity to
appoint a member shall be offered to the largest shareholder who not
already have a member in the Nomination Committee. The opportunity to
appoint a member of the Nomination Committee shall thereafter be
passed on in order of the largest shareholding. The members of the
Nomination Committee shall appoint the committee chair among
themselves. The names of the members of the Nomination Committee
shall be announced not later than the date of the publication of the
Company's interim report for the third quarter of 2016.

Should the ownership in the Company change, after the announcement of
the Nomination Committee but before the end of the fourth quarter of
2016, to such extent that the members of the Nomination Committee no
longer reflect the shareholding as stipulated above, then the member
of the Nomination Committee representing the shareholder with the
lesser number of shares in the Company shall resign from the
committee and the shareholder who has become the larger shareholder
in the Company shall, in the order corresponding to its shareholding
in the Company, be offered to appoint a new member of the Nomination
Committee. Minor changes in the shareholding of the Company shall not
be taken into account. Shareholders who have appointed a member in
the Nomination Committee have the right to dismiss that member and
appoint a new member.

Should a member of the Nomination Committee leave his/her assignment
prematurely and if the Nomination Committee deems it appropriate, a
new member shall be appointed by the shareholder who appointed the
resigning member or that other shareholder who at that point of time
has the larger shareholding in the Company.

The meeting also authorised the directors to buy back shares and to
issue new shares in accordance with the Notice.
