12 / 1 / 2017 PRESS RELEASE

Colleagues,

The future of our industry has reached a limiting point. Since yesterday. After the OPAP-POIPPP meeting, the rupture in the company's relations with the agents is given as OPAP SA wants to unilaterally impose new contracts and change-lower our commission.

In particular, on Wednesday, 11 / 1 / 2017, the Board of Directors of OPAPP visited the offices of OPAP SA, at the invitation of the company's management, where the Managing Director Damian Cope presented the OPAP SA's decision to change the way calculating the commission of the games played in our agencies, which will bring about a significant reduction, as well as its decision to abolish the existing agency contract and replace it with new ones.

Today, Thursday, 12 / 1 / 2017, the Board of Directors of the WIPO meets at the Federation's offices for a first assessment of the situation. We will follow the next days of the IPPC's announcements in detail.

ATTENTION: ANY PROVIDER SHOULD NOT SUBMIT A CONTRACT UNTIL A FURTHER NOTIFICATION BY THE POLICE.

Joint announcement of nine unions of agents
17/1/2017

Colleagues,

As you already know, the new OPAP Agents' Regulation has been published and a new brokerage agreement is planned to abolish the existing agency agreement.

Unfortunately, the data so far only positively can not be characterized in our future.

In the last GA. of the WIPO, it was decided by the body of the representatives to make every effort to make changes to the text of the new regulation in order to maintain the existing contract, which provided us with important issues.

So far, we have been confronted with the OPAP's intransigence and the cooperation of the EERP with the Agency's business plans.

Through this announcement, the Associations are committed to proclaiming in all respects how they are aligned with the efforts of the Federation and we look forward to the results of the meetings with both the Company and the above-mentioned independent gaming supervisor.

We are ready to assert dynamically and in every possible way, whether it is trade union or judicial, our achievements and the future of our business.
Difficult moments require dynamic decisions.

Associations are the primary organs of the industry and virtually its heart.

They will always be next to the Federation's claims but will always give their matches whenever necessary.

Colleagues, all we ask of you is to remain calm and not to make hasty decisions and actions under any pressure you will accept.
The briefing will be continuous and will be intensified after the contacts and negotiations are completed in order to give you the final directions and the context within which our claims will move.

THE COMPANIES OF THESSALONIKI AND CHALKIDIKI PREFECTURES, DRAMAS, KAVALAS, PELLAS, SERRES, IMATHIAS, KILKIS, EVROS AND PIERIAS.

Dear gentlemen,

I hereby attach a Memorandum relating to the "New OPAP Agents Regulations" and the contracts between OPAP and agents.

Please, after careful reading of the above note, please reply to the following:

1. Why should contracts between our agents and OPAP already signed be replaced by new ones and not simply be amended to bring them into line with the new regulation and the principles of the EYD?

2. What is your Independent Authority's (EERP) interest in controlling and supervising gambling, removing the existing contract and signing a completely new contract?

Looking forward to your immediate response to my questions or my personal mail: [Email protected], or in the mail of "EPOTH": [Email protected].

Thank you in advance for your interest.

Sincerely,


Anastasia Tzampazli
OPAP agent




MEMORANDUM


Anastasia Tzampazli, OPAP agent (code 229064), resident of Thessaloniki, Oreokastrou street 91, bc. 56491, Stavroupoli.

TO

The independent administrative authority with the "Supervision and Control Committee" (EEEP), headquartered in Athens (Acharnes 17), is legally represented.

Thessaloniki 17-1-2016

As is well known, it has been published in the Official Gazette Issue B no. 3923 / 7-12-2016 decision no. 229 / 2 / 18-11-2016 of the EYEP entitled "OPAP SA's ".

In its Article 11 under the heading TRANSITIONAL PROVISIONS the following are foreseen:

'11.1 The operator must comply with the provisions of this Decision within ninety (90) days of its publication in the Government Gazette.

11.2 Within a reasonable time from the publication of this decision and in any case within twenty four (24) months, and subject to the provisions of paragraph 11.1, agents already operating agencies must relocate to a site meeting the requirements of Article 6. 24 of the present, according to the operator's specific timetables and commercial policy. For this purpose and in compliance with this provision, the operator will provide for such a provision with the obligation to relocate the agent to the agency agreement. If the agent fails to comply, the operator will be required to terminate the brokerage agreement after the expiry of the twenty-four (11.3) months, otherwise the relevant brokerage agreement is automatically terminated and ceases to have any effect. XNUMX Until the termination in any way of the existing contracts, when the contract is published, the operator and the agent may exercise the rights arising from the existing contracts.

11.4 Issues not covered by this Regulation will be governed by the brokerage agreement between the operator and the agent. "

From the above it becomes clear that there is provision in the above decision β ???? New OPAP Agents Regulations to abolish otherwise termination of "already existing contracts", ie by 28-9-2009 Individual Contracts signed by each OPAP agent with OPAP SA and the text of which is common to all agents and has come, following consultations and joint agreement between OPAP SA and Agents.

It should not be overlooked that existing contracts have been in force for seven years and have fully covered every emerging issue in relations between OPAP and OPAP SA and have produced both legal rights and results.

However, it is clear from the text of the Regulation that the OPAP acting agents will be required to sign a new contract with OPAP SA. , with content unknown to them so far and which will contain at least the provisions of the new regulation.

It is understandable that these new contracts will be accession treaties, as their text and the agreements contained therein will be exclusively defined by OPAP SA. and none of the OPAP agents of both current and future prospective agents will have the option of signing new contracts or not.

However, the existing 28-9-2009 Individual Agreement between OPAP SA and Agents should form the basis for new contracts after the necessary amendments to bring its text into line with the changes to the new Rules of Agents.

And this is self-evident as it has already been successfully operating for many years and a legal status has already been established between OPAP and Agents, which can neither, nor must, be forcibly overthrown. On the contrary, the aim is to harmonize the text of the existing Individual Convention in the spirit of the new Regulation.

Thus, briefly, briefly and briefly in Article 1, under the heading 'Subject of the Convention', the four types of agency can be included; in Article 3 under the heading 'Declarations and Assurance Certificates', the agency responsible may be added and the text specified the conditions that must be fulfilled for the persons of both (agent and agency responsible) to have these properties, in Article 4 under the heading "Branch of operation" can be added the new distances depending on the type the agencies and the region that operate in Article 20 under "Transfer or conversion agent business" may include new data on legal entities and recommendation remain the firm position of the agents on the transferability of the agency and so on.

Besides, the already existing contract in its article 2 entitled "Fundamental Principles" already explicitly provides for the protection of Greek society from addiction to gambling, the prevention of fraud, the suppression of money laundering and the laundering of money laundering, the protection of minors and consumer protection, principles and concepts preserved by the independent administrative authority in the decisions it adopts.

It follows from the above that there is no need to draw up new contracts from the outset, but it is sufficient to amend the already existing one that will include in its text and the provisions of the new regulation.

Lastly, with regard to the new regulation, there are at least four points to be amended, which are as follows:

Article 1: Delete the words "as indicative of the commercial and financial terms of cooperation with the agents" from the definition of commercial policy of OPAP SA, as the main subject of the Regulation is not to refer to the commercial policy of OPAP SA but mainly to protect consumers from addiction to gambling. Especially for supplies it is proper to predict the already existing contract.

Article 5.2: Clarify the concept of co-location and internal linking of agencies with regard to Type A and C agencies with the adoption of a new directive.

Article 5.3.4: Replace the paragraph as follows: "5.3.4. The above limitations of paragraphs 5.3.2.1 to 5.3.2.5 and paragraph 5.3.3 do not apply to agencies that operate at the time of publication of the present and have a distance less than the minimum above than other agencies of the same type. For these agencies, existing shorter distances than other similar agencies apply, even in the case of the first since the publication of their present relocation, subject to the prior approval of their relocation by the operator. "

Article 11.2. Replace the paragraph as follows: "Within twenty-four (24) months of publication of this decision and subject to the provisions of paragraph 11.1, agents already operating agencies must be relocated to a site meeting the conditions of Article 6 of this. In the event that this period of time expires, non-relocation agents will not apply the provisions of 9.3.17 and 9.3.18. '

Finally, according to paragraph 9.3.16, "the rights deriving from the brokerage agreement are not transferable", ie the transfers are abolished except for the ones mentioned in the following paragraph 9.3.17 (spouse, descendants, etc.) and even in article 12 the validity of the Regulation starts from the publication in the Gazette of 7-12-2016. Pursuant to para. 11.3, "until the termination in any way of the existing contracts, the agent and the agent may exercise the rights resulting from the existing contracts", ie as long as the existing contracts are not terminated or terminated apply. So OPAP's position is that the 7-12-2016 is not in the spirit and the letter of the new regulation and then the transfers are forbidden.

The aforementioned amendments of the new Regulation in conjunction with the amendment of the already existing contracts and not the signing of new ones with the text that will be imposed by OPAP SA to the agent and will not be the result of a negotiation between them, are deemed necessary in order to smoothly transition from the legal regime up to now to the new that is attempted by the adoption of the Agents' Regulation.


RESOLUTION CG

A. SETTLEMENT-CONVENTIONS.

(a) Intervention to the EWC with a meeting and a memorandum to change unfavorable provisions in the Agent Regulation with a predetermined date for the changes.

Answer: IPPPP contrasts with OPAP

OPAP Contractors - Agents for Reducing Supplies

In opposition to OPAP, his agents are moving. The reason is the new individual contract they are invited to sign in the next two months, but above all the new reduced commissions that OPAP seeks to impose.

According to a trade unionist, the new agency contract is worse for agents than the previous 2009 signed by the then state OPAP.
The new contract is the result of the new operating rules of OPAP agencies, recently presented by the Committee on Supervision and Control.

The new regulation was published in the Official Gazette at the beginning of December 2016 and gives scope for OPAP and its agents to comply three months. New contracts must be finalized by the beginning of March.

Currently OPAP is in consultation with the trade union organizations of the agents in order to finalize the final text of the contract.

Two are friction points.

The first concerns the right of co-decision between the two sides on any changes made to the Convention. In particular, the agents are denied the right to approve any attempted changes, whether imposed by the EIO, as is the case in this case, or by OPAP. The second and most important point of friction is the change in commissions.

For OPAP came the moment of cuts in commission to agents. The latter have not experienced a change in the percentage of their commissions, which remains at 8% on the turnover or about 24% of the gross earnings of the organization.

However, 2013 was charged with 30% on its Gross Gaming Revenue Tax (GGR Tax), which was increased by 1 / 1 / 2016 to 35%. This tax will give the State for 2016 more than 400 million.

OPAP now proposes a new way of calculating agents' commissions. This calculation is based on the net income of the organization. In particular, it is suggested that agents receive about 33% of Net Gaming Revenues (NGR). Net revenue arises from bets, minus earnings to players and less income tax (GGR Tax).

In the end, OPAP agents are advised to receive a commission of approximately 7,2% of the turnover, ie betting, instead of 8% that is still valid today. Over and over, the total of commissions received by the agents amounted to approximately 313 million. If the new proposed method of calculating commissions had been applied, agents' revenues would have been around 282 million.

PRESS RELEASE

We informed 12-01-2017 in the press release of 11-01-2017 about the intention of OPAP SA to change the way our commission is calculated on all games, as well as its will to conclude new contracts that will include amendments to our existing Conventions, which are not limited to matters for which there is a need to adapt to the rules of the Agents' Regulations. These positions of OPAP SA, which were announced to us at a meeting held on Wednesday, XNUMX-XNUMX-XNUMX, find us vertically opposed. In particular, we are opposed to the issue of reducing our commission in such a difficult economic juncture, where many agencies already have problems of sustainability.

These two decisions of OPAP SA considered actions that could lead to a break in the relations between the two parties, mainly from the positions that emerged from OPAP SA, as we have said at the time. In the same bulletin we had written that we will deal with our next-minute announcement, something that did not happen, as the new meeting with OPAP SA emerged. discussing the organization's claim for new contracts and a new way of calculating our commission. We thought it was a stand of responsibility and temper of the IPCC, but also a sign of goodwill in view of the new meeting.

This new meeting was held on Thursday 19-01-2017 in the presence of Chief Executive Officer Damian Cope, while the IPCC included the entire Board. of the Federation. In this case, OPAP SA has reaffirmed its intentions for procurement and for new contracts, and for our part we have emphasized our position - as recorded in the 12-12-2016 General Assembly - to harmonize 2009's contracts with the new Agency Rules. At the same time, because it was sent to us two days before the proposed draft contract by OPAP SA, we have referred to some points that are extremely burdensome for the agents, as well as, in our opinion, the intentions of OPAP SA For this reason, it was agreed that there should be a meeting of legal counselors on both sides.

In the procurement issue, we have stressed our standing to keep commissions as they are, especially at this time, and given the upcoming tax and insurance creep that will hit the industry by making thousands of agencies unsustainable. This is what OPAP SA knows very well, as we have sent the relevant study data that prove it. We stressed to OPAP's CEO that OPEC could discuss a possible change in the way the commission is calculated for Pame Betting, so that the product gets better and more competitive. We committed ourselves in the coming days to a meeting with our proposal on this issue.


Colleagues,

In both procurement and contract matters, the positions of PPOC are the ones recorded in previous decisions of the Board of Directors and the General Meetings. We are still discussing with OPAP SA in order to avoid any unilateral actions and to find commonly accepted solutions. It is understandable that we can not announce anything unless the discussions are completed.

Moreover, any agreements and decisions that will arise will be approved by the General Assembly of Delegates.

Athens, 30 January 2017


PRESS RELEASE


It was held on Thursday, 26 / 1 / 2017, an extraordinary Board of Directors of POIPP where it discussed the hot issues of the sector at that time, which is the decision of OPAP SA to change the way the toys are calculated and its claim for signing new individual contracts with agents - with the simultaneous removal of this 2009.


The meeting of the Board of Directors was deemed necessary because of the invitation of OPAP SA to the POIPP for talks on Friday 27 / 1 / 2017 on the above issues. OPAP SA had sent its PPPP proposal to the commission, which includes all the games and refers to a percentage on the NGR - which a proposal was made - to elaborate the committee set up by the WIPO and to inform the members of D. Σ. At the same time, the same committee formed a counter-proposal presented by the Board of Directors, where it was discussed.


Also OPAP SA has sent the draft contract β ???? which she intends to propose to agents - which has already been dealt with by the PPPP and its Legal Service, the results of which were analyzed by the members of the Board, with particular reference to some important negative provisions, some of which these are abusive. From the process of discussion, our attitude was determined and decided at the meeting with OPAP SA the next day.


At the next day's meeting, OPAP SA raised the issue of changing the way of supply - using NGR - as a prerequisite for the development of the company's business planning with the involvement of the existing network. The opinion of the OPOCP as submitted to OPAP SA was, and is, that any agreement on the issue of supply is interrelated with the agreement and the subject of the contract. Each side submitted its views during the discussion, clarifications were given, while approaches and differences of positions were recorded. However, both parties agreed to have another meeting in the coming days, with the promise of making similar efforts to mitigate the differences.


The Board of Directors of POIPP once again assures its fellow agents that any agreement with OPAP SA will be taken into consideration by the General Assembly of Delegates who will decide.
