Management to conduct conference call on Thursday, September 3, 2015 at 10:00 am EST

TORONTO, CANADA--(Marketwired - Sept. 2, 2015) - TransGaming Inc. (TSX VENTURE:TNG) ("TransGaming" or the "Company") today reported its fourth quarter and fiscal 2015 results after the close of markets. Tomorrow it will send notice of its Annual General Meeting of Shareholders, to be held September 24, 2015, at 4:00 p.m. at the offices of Norton Rose Fulbright Canada, LLP, Royal Bank Plaza, South Tower, Suite 3800, Toronto. The Company's audited consolidated financial statements for the year ended May 31, 2015 and Management's Discussion and Analysis together with Notice of Meeting and Information Circular have been filed and are available on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.

Highlights

2015 saw a number of transformative changes, most notably, the sale of the Company's cross-platform portability technology to NVIDIA subsequent to year-end for $3.75 million. With the proceeds from the NVIDIA transaction, the Company repaid its CA$1.8 million debt to BEST Funds in full and meaningfully improved its financial position.

The Company's other highlights for the 2015 fiscal year included:

  • Announced the monetization of GameTree TV across its Smart TV's globally in partnership with leading digital payments platform Paymentwall
  • Confirmed launch of its subscription-based cloud gaming service, GameTree TV GOLD, with various Smart TV partners beginning in early September
  • Announced a partnership with Liberty Global, the largest international cable company with over 27 million customers in 14 countries to bring GameTree TV content to Liberty Global's next generation Horizon set-top-boxes
  • Announced the availability of GameTree TV to pay-TV operators worldwide in partnership with CloudTV software platform ActiveVideo
  • Reported revenue of $2.7 million, compared to $3.4 million in prior year

As a result of NVIDIA's acquisition, the Company has presented the financial results of its former Graphics and Portability Group (excluding SwiftShader) as discontinued operations in the consolidated statements of operations for both fiscal years 2015 and 2014. Therefore the revenue presented above reflects the financial results of the continuing operations only.

Commenting on the results, Dennis Ensing, CEO of TransGaming stated:

"We believe the addressable market for family fun video games delivered directly to TV is growing at a rapid rate. So, we are now only focused on expanding our GameTree TV distribution footprint directly and through strategic partnerships, supported by an ever-growing catalogue of games people will love to play and enjoy together. We are also extremely excited about the upcoming launch of GameTree TV GOLD that will bring us a new and scalable subscription-based revenue stream from more than 100 million Smart TVs worldwide. "

In other news, effective August 25, 2015, the Company appointed Dennis Ensing as Chief Executive Officer, removing the "Interim" status. Tamir Goren, who had been leading the GameTree TV efforts as Vice President of the Digital Media Group, was appointed the Company's Chief Operating Officer.
