Moritz Schwenkow appointed Member of the Executive Board and Chief Ticketing Officer of DEAG

Berlin, 27 March 2020 - The Supervisory Board of DEAG Deutsche Entertainment Aktiengesellschaft (Prime Standard, ISIN: DE000A0Z23G6, stock exchange symbol: LOUD, "DEAG") has appointed Moritz Schwenkow, 38, to the Executive Board with effect from 1 April 2020. As Chief Ticketing Officer (CTO), he will be responsible for DEAG's entire ticketing business in the future and will develop synergies between the ticketing platforms,, and the UK ticketing platform, which was acquired in December 2019. As CTO, he is also responsible for the expansion into further European countries and, in the long term, also for the consolidation of all ticketing activities.

Moritz Schwenkow has 15 years of experience in the live entertainment industry and has held many management positions at DEAG and various Group companies in recent years. Among his other positions, he has been CEO of mytic myticket AG since 2015.

By appointing Moritz Schwenkow Chief Ticketing Officer (CTO), DEAG underscores the great and constantly growing importance of ticketing for its integrated business model. DEAG currently sells more than 5 million tickets internationally every year. A significant share of sales is handled via DEAG's own ticketing platforms. With the acquisition of the UK ticketing platform in December 2019, DEAG has further strengthened its ticketing division quite significantly and expanded the share of third-party content for non-Group events. In the years to come, the company hopes to expand further into other European countries and plans to at least double the number of tickets sold via its own platforms in the medium term. This will make ticketing DEAG's fastest-growing business area in the years to come and an important driver of earnings.

Moritz Schwenkow, CTO of DEAG: "I am very much looking forward to working together with my colleagues on the Board. The DEAG Group is already excellently positioned internationally in the area of ticketing through MyTicket and Gigantic. On this strong basis and as a result of increasing digitalisation, we want to continue to grow, provide impulses for other business areas and further expand our earnings power in the years to come."

Wolf-Dieter Gramatke, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of DEAG: "Moritz Schwenkow has extensive know-how in the live entertainment industry. With his expertise and market knowledge, he will continue to drive our successful expansion of the ticketing business and further strengthen our position in the market."

Moritz Schwenkow complements the Executive Board of DEAG, which previously consisted of Prof. Peter Schwenkow (CEO), Christian Diekmann (COO & CDO), Detlef Kornett (CMO & International Business Affairs) and Roman Velke (CFO).
