Appointment of Ed McDermott to the Board of Leap Gaming

FastForward Innovations Ltd, the AIM quoted company focusing on making investments in fast growing and industry leading businesses, is pleased to announce that Ed McDermott, CEO of FastForward, has been appointed to the Board of Leap Gaming ('Leap') as a Non-Executive Director with immediate effect. Lorne Abony, former Chairman of FFWD, will remain as a board observer of Leap. The board of Leap is currently exploring its options to list the company during 2021. FastForward has a 43.4% interest in Leap Gaming.

Leap is one of the top virtual sports providers, with extensive experience in creating ultra-realistic 3D games, deployable on multiple platforms. Leap's commitment to excellence has led it one step further, enabling it to extend its expertise into offering a multitude of other casino games, alongside 3D slots and virtual sports officialised content.

Ian Burns, Chairman of FastForward, commented: "We are delighted that Ed has been appointed to the Board of Leap Gaming as a Non-Executive Director. Leap is an extremely exciting asset for FastForward and has seen significant growth, continually expanding its extensive list of partnerships and agreements with the addition of major gaming clients such as 888 and Every Matrix among others. Ed's wealth of financial and London markets experience will be invaluable to Yariv and the team as they begin the IPO process in 2021. I look forward to providing further updates on the next steps for Leap Gaming."
