Christoph Gerlinger, founder and CEO of Frogster
Interactive Pictures AG, will resign from the executive
board and his other roles at the Frogster Group as mutually
agreed per year end 2011 after almost 7 years at the top of
the company to take on new entrepreneurial challenges.

Gerlinger will stay closely connected with both Frogster
and Gameforge and remain available as a consultant.
Gerhard Koning, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of
Frogster: "Christoph Gerlinger founded Frogster in 2005 and
took it public the very next year. He established Frogster
as one of the leading European online games publishers with
foreign subsidiaries and over 200 employees and conducted
its recent integration into the company group of its new
main shareholder constructively. We thank him in the name
of the Supervisory Board and the employees for his
entrepreneurial achievements and the value added for the
shareholders." Alexander Rösner, CEO of the main
shareholder Gameforge and Member of the Supervisory Board
of Frogster, adds: "We would like to express our heartfelt
thanks to Christoph Gerlinger for his dedicated work, the
trustful cooperation and his substantial contributions to
Frogster's success also after the takeover by Gameforge."
