Notice Regarding the Stock Acquisition of Metaps Entertainment Limited

(Conversion into a Consolidated Subsidiary)

DIGITAL HEARTS HOLDINGS Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as the "Company") announces that it passed a resolution at its Board of Directors' Meeting held today to convert Metaps Entertainment Limited (hereinafter referred to as "ME") to a subsidiary through the acquisition of shares of ME. As a result, ME and all group companies of ME (hereinafter referred to as the "ME Group", total eight companies including ME itself, its subsidiary Metaps Pte. Ltd., and others) will also become the Company's subsidiaries. Details are as follows:

1. Reason for stock acquisition

The Company's group, considering that it is in the 'Second Founding' period since the fiscal year ended March 31, 2018, is working on expanding the Enterprise Business to create its second pillar of profit in addition to the mainstay Entertainment Business. In the Enterprise Business, we worked aggressively to strengthen human resources and technologies and expand services. As a result, the Enterprise Business has grown rapidly and reached to the enough sales seize which makes stable profit and the company has started to see its next target of this segment as ¥10 billion. In this way, we have established a business foundation that served as a second pillar of earnings. On the other hands, as for the mainstay Entertainment Business, the global market continues to expand including the worldwide popularity of battle royale games originated in the Asian market. In particular, Chinese-made games have grown rapidly, with a five-year CAGR of outside-China sales exceeding 20% (*1). For this reason, the Company's group have strengthened its business operation in China and established bases in Korea and Taiwan as well. Through these efforts, we have grown our overseas business to approximately ¥1.5 billion at present by strengthening various services that our clients, global game makers, need when expanding their game titles to overseas markets, such as translation and LQA(*2) services to provide suitable image of the worldview for each game title, 2D/3D graphics production, audio recording, and other cultural characterization services tailored to local needs.

Meanwhile, ME Group provides marketing support when Chinese game makers expand their game titles to overseas markets. It utilizes diverse media resources, such as online advertising, TV commercials, and influencer marketing using SNS, to provide services tailored to the lifecycle of clients' game titles. ME Group has bases in Tokyo, Shanghai, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Singapore. The ME Group has been supporting the promotion of some top game titles in China with the advantage that local staff who are familiar with local culture and business practices can propose optimal strategy and promotion plan to each local market. In FY2020, ME Group had approximately ¥2.0 billion in sales.

Now, the Company's group has decided to acquire ME Group because it will enable us to provide one-stop comprehensive localization services that are indispensable when game makers launch their titles to overseas markets. This is due to the collaboration of our group, which has strengths in culturalization, such as translating, LQA, and 2D/3D graphics and video material creation, and ME Group, which has strengthsin marketing support for Chinese game clients for entering to other Asian markets.

Going forward, we will leverage the knowledge and customer base of both groups' strong business domains and will support the overseas expansion of client companies in the digital entertainment industry in Asia, including global game makers in China. We aim to become a group of specialists in comprehensive localization.
