NYX Chief Executive Officer Matt Davey stated, "I am pleased to see the strong support from our shareholders. We continue to be excited about the market opportunity in front of us. With the recent acquisition of OpenBet, the Company has never been better placed to exploit these opportunities as we execute on our strategic plan".

Filing of Prospectus

The Company is also pleased to announce today that it has filed a final short form prospectus in all the provinces and territories of Canada (the "Prospectus") qualifying the distribution of 54,550,000 ordinary shares (the "Ordinary Shares") and 13,637,500 ordinary share purchase warrants of the Company issuable for no additional consideration upon the deemed exercise of 54,550,000 issued and outstanding special warrants of the Company (the "Special Warrants"). Each Special Warrant entitles the holder thereof to receive one (1) equity unit in the capital of the Company comprised of one (1) Ordinary Share and one-quarter (1/4) of one (1) ordinary share purchase warrant of the Company (each whole warrant, a "Warrant"), subject to adjustment and acceleration in certain circumstances in accordance with the indentures which govern the Special Warrants and the Warrants. The Special Warrants are not available for purchase pursuant to the Prospectus and no additional funds are to be received by NYX from the distribution of the Ordinary Shares and Warrants. The Special Warrants will be automatically exercised without payment of additional consideration at 5:00 p.m. (Toronto time) on the third business day after a receipt has been issued, or deemed issued, as applicable, for the Prospectus by the securities regulators in each of the provinces and territories of Canada, which automatic exercise will occur at 5:00 pm (EST) on July 20, 2016. The Ordinary Shares and Warrants will also be freely tradable at this time.

Update on Fiscal 2015 MD&A

The Company also announces that it has refiled its management's discussion and analysis for the three months ended and year ended December 31, 2015 (the "MD&A"). The refiling was in connection with updating certain disclosure regarding financing and foreign currency charges with respect to a change in accounting treatment which reclassified $40 million of preferred shares as equity rather than debt.  The change in accounting treatment was a non-cash adjustment to the fair value of derivatives and foreign currency expense which were properly disclosed in the financials, notes to the financials, and the adjusted EBITDA reconciliation.
