NYX Gaming Group Limited Announces New Shareholder Meeting Date, Provides Update on William Hill Matters and Announces New Commercial Partnership with Scientific Games

LAS VEGAS, November 10, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --

NYX Filed Anti-Trust Lawsuit Against William Hill in New Jersey Court  

NYX Gaming Group Limited (TSXV: NYX) (NYX.V)("NYX") today announced a change in the previously set date for the special meeting of shareholders of NYX to consider and approve the proposed acquisition ("Acquisition") of NYX by Scientific Games Corporation ("Scientific Games"). The shareholder meeting will now be held in Las Vegas, Nevada on December 20, 2017 and the record date and time for voting at the meeting will be December 18, 2017 at 5:00 p.m. (Pacific time).

NYX also announced that it has filed an action in the Chancery Division of the Superior Court of New Jersey, Atlantic County against William Hill Steeplechase Limited and William Hill Plc (together, "William Hill") and certain of William Hill's officers and directors. NYX alleges that its shareholder William Hill has engaged in wrongful conduct in violation of the New Jersey Antitrust Act in attempting to block the Acquisition, which will bring great benefits to the nascent regulated sports betting industry. The complaint seeks injunctive relief, treble damages and attorney's fees for violations of the New Jersey Antitrust Act, and also alleges tortious interference with economic advantage, and tortious interference with contract, and seeks punitive damages.

In addition, NYX announced today that it has entered into an exclusive agreement with Scientific Games regarding the development and distribution of a new sports betting platform in the United States. The agreement sets forth, on a legally binding basis, the key terms of a proposed commercial partnership to be agreed between NYX and Scientific Games to be incorporated into a new commercial agreement between the parties (the "Commercial Agreement").

Pursuant to the terms of the Commercial Agreement, Scientific Games will commit to make an investment of US$30 million in the aggregate (of which $1 million is immediately due and payable to NYX, with the remaining sums to be paid on a timetable to be mutually agreed by the parties) to fund the development of a new sports betting platform by NYX for use in the U.S. (the "U.S. Platform"). The U.S. Platform would include the betting engine, trading tools and other features to be mutually agreed upon.

Scientific Games will be granted the right to be the exclusive third-party distributor with respect to the U.S. Platform in all territories within the U.S. where sports betting is legalized for a term of ten years commencing upon the first commercial deployment of the U.S. Platform in the U.S. NYX would continue to own all of its existing and newly developed technology under the terms of the Commercial Agreement. Given that Scientific Games is the largest lottery and gaming supplier in the U.S., is licensed in every significant jurisdiction in the U.S., and has relationships with virtually every major operator, partnering with NYX on a mutually exclusive basis will enhance and accelerate NYX's distribution capability in the U.S. and would represent a highly value-creating opportunity for both parties.

"This agreement represents an important step forward for NYX as we continue to position ourselves for greater expansion in the North American market," said Matt Davey, Chief Executive Officer of NYX. "As evidenced by the recent positive legislation for online gaming in Pennsylvania, the market potential continues to grow, and Scientific Games provides a fantastic partner to take advantage of these opportunities. We are excited to move forward at pace in this market."

This agreement with Scientific Games may be terminated (i) by mutual agreement of Scientific Games and NYX, (ii) by either Scientific Games or NYX if the arrangement agreement dated September 20, 2017 in respect of the Acquisition (the "Arrangement Agreement") is terminated in connection with NYX entering into a superior proposal or the board of NYX making a change in recommendation and in either case the superior proposal is consummated, or (iii) by NYX if the Arrangement Agreement is terminated in circumstances where the Acquisition is not approved by at least 51% of the votes of NYX shareholders (excluding William Hill and its affiliates) at the shareholders meeting.

3D Systems to Demonstrate Aerospace Manufacturing Leadership with End-to-End Solutions at Dubai Airshow 2017

- End-to-end manufacturing solutions accelerate supply chain processes and reduce time of aircraft on ground

- New DuraForm® ProX® FR1200 material delivers FAR 25.853 compliance, meeting the flame retardancy thresholds required by the Aerospace market

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates, Nov. 10, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- 3D Systems (NYSE: DDD) announced today that it is showcasing its additive manufacturing expertise for the Aerospace and Defense industry, in conjunction with select customers, next week at the Dubai Airshow. As the inventor of 3D printing, the company offers industry-leading end-to-end manufacturing solutions designed for the Aerospace and Defense industry, which are comprised of the broadest portfolio of software, technology, materials, and services capabilities. These solutions help customers produce parts more quickly at significantly lighter weight while retaining tensile strength with lower total cost of operation (TCO) as compared to traditional manufacturing processes.

Video Monitor Shroud 3D Printed with DuraForm® ProX®  FR1200

Dubai Airshow attendees will be able to see 3D production solutions developed with Aerospace customers at the 3D Systems booth, stand 1560.

3D Systems' Bryan Hodgson, advanced aerospace applications for 3D Systems, will be leading a keynote presentation at this year's event discussing the benefits of industrializing 3D printing for Aerospace. The keynote will be held at the air show's conference on Unmanned Aircraft Systems on November 15 at 12:40pm local time.

SLS and New Flame Retardant Material for Interior Cabin Parts
3D Systems' new DuraForm® ProX® FR1200 nylon material delivers FAR 25.853 compliance, meeting the flame retardancy thresholds required by the Aerospace market for interior cabin parts. The material meets AITM Smoke Density and Toxicity Requirements, and its non-halogenated formulation has a favorable health profile. Parts produced with DuraForm ProX FR1200 possess excellent surface quality and a vibrant white color that cannot be attained with competitive materials making it ideal for post-processing and painting. Using this material in conjunction with 3D Systems' SLS additive technology enables very fast, tool-free, on-demand production that accelerates supply chains while reducing inventory and time of aircraft on ground (AOG). The material is currently being certified by a major international airline.

Investment Casting for Dramatically Reduced Time and Cost
3D Systems is the leader in technologies and services for 3D printed investment casting patterns. The combination of its SLA additive manufacturing platforms, QuickCast® methodology, and materials delivers perfect surface finish with a lightweight, zero-ash burnout process. Customers, including Vaupell, use the Accura® CastPro? Free material to produce antimony-free SLA casting patterns for Aerospace customers, delivering unprecedented speed and quality at a fraction of the cost of traditional methodologies. Andy Reeves, a Vaupell sales engineer for new business development, estimates that a specific 26-inch diameter part pattern can be produced with QuickCast on a 3D Systems ProX® 800 SLA 3D printer in two to three days for approximately $6,000 to $15,000. A traditionally produced tool for the same part could take anywhere from several months to more than a year at a cost of $200,000 to $300,000.

Direct Metal Printing for Mission-Critical, Risk-Averse Applications
3D Systems partners closely with many Aerospace companies to research, design and certify metal additive parts for the industry. A major European satellite-based system manufacturer is one such partner that is aggressively researching the technology with an aim to transform satellite design with 3D printed metal parts. 3D Systems' Direct Metal Printing (DMP) is now qualified and fully available for titanium in this manufacturer's applications enabling parts to be significantly lighter and noticeably more compact, with equal or superior tensile strength to traditionally manufactured parts. Today, for certain products like the satellites, 80 percent of metal parts are produced using 3D printing, replacing traditionally manufactured parts.

"3D Systems has a long history in the Aerospace and Defense industry, and many successful collaborations with our customers," said Bryan Hodgson, advanced aerospace applications, 3D Systems. "At this event, we're very excited to be showcasing several that deliver productivity, repeatability, durability, and effective total cost of operation for our customers."

Software Accelerates Progression from Prototyping to Production
In addition to providing technology, materials and professional services, 3D Systems has a complete software portfolio to support the digital manufacturing workflow, from Digitize, Design & Simulation to Manufacture, Inspect and Manage.
