St. Julian's, Malta--(Newsfile Corp. - July 9, 2024) - Esports Entertainment Group, Inc. (OTCQB: GMBL) (OTCQB: GMBLP) (OTC Pink: GMBLW) (OTC Pink: GMBLZ) ("Esports Entertainment", "EEG", or the "Company"), a global iGaming company and business-to-business (B2B) esports content and solutions provider, today announced that it filed a Form 15 with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") to deregister its common stock, common purchase warrants and 10% Series A Cumulative Redeemable Convertible Preferred Stock under Section 12(g) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the "Exchange Act"), and to suspend its reporting obligations under Section 15(d) of the Exchange Act. The Company's obligation to file periodic reports with the SEC, including reports on Forms 10-K, 10-Q and 8-K, will be suspended immediately upon filing of the Form 15. Once the Form 15 is effective, which is expected to occur within 90 days of filing, the Company will no longer be a public reporting company and its obligations to file other reports with the SEC will also be suspended.

The deregistration is aimed at further reducing the complexity and costs of public reporting following the recent voluntary delisting of its securities from the Nasdaq Stock Exchange, and allowing the management team to focus their efforts on the Company's core business activities. The deregistration does not otherwise impact the Company's business operations.
