Mad Catz Reports on Results of Annual and Special Meeting of Shareholders

    - Intends to Modify Proposed Employee Stock Option Plan for Shareholder
Vote on October 2, 2007 -

    SAN DIEGO, September 10 /CNW/ - Mad Catz Interactive, Inc. (AMEX/TSX:
MCZ), a leading third-party interactive entertainment accessory provider,
today reported on the results of its September 7, 2007 Annual and Special
Meeting of Shareholders.

    At the meeting, each of the five director nominees -- Geofrey Myers,
Darren Richardson, Thomas R. Brown, Robert J. Molyneaux and William Woodward
-- was elected to the Company's Board of Directors for a one-year term until
the 2008 Annual Meeting of Shareholders. The five member board includes four
directors who are considered independent under the corporate governance
standards of the American Stock Exchange. Shareholders also appointed KPMG,
LLP as the Company's Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm and Auditor
with authorization to the Company's Board of Directors to fix the remuneration
of the auditor. The Company adjourned the meeting until October 2, 2007, at
which time the proposal relating to the adoption of the Mad Catz Interactive,
Inc. Stock Option Plan - 2007 and the grant under that plan of options to
purchase 1,000,000 shares of common stock will be considered. Additionally,
the Company has withdrawn the proposal to extend the term of exercise for
certain outstanding stock options previously granted by the Company.

    Geofrey Myers, Non-Executive Chairman of the Board commented, "The Mad
Catz Interactive, Inc. Stock Option Plan - 2007, as initially proposed, was
conditionally approved by the Toronto Stock Exchange. However, prior to the
meeting, an independent proxy advisory firm made recommendations against the
proposed plan. By adjourning the meeting until October 2, the Company and the
Board will have the opportunity to evaluate and modify, as needed, the
proposed employee stock option plan to address the proxy advisory firm's
objections. We are hopeful that in doing so, the new, revised plan will be
approved by our shareholders. We believe approval of the plan is important to
promote the long-term success of the Company and creation of additional
shareholder value by incentivizing key employees and using option grants under
the plan as a component of the overall compensation package."
