WMS (Australia)—On August 15, 2007, the Company filed suit in New South Wales, Australia alleging a breach of contract by WMS relating to its failure in 2006 to provide certain software game masters to Stargames in accordance with the terms of the contract and seeking damages related thereto.

On August 23, 2007, the Company sought and obtained an ex parte order enjoining WMS from seeking to enjoin the Australia case.

On September 7, 2007, Pirelli Armstrong Tire Corporation Retiree Medical Benefits Trust filed a shareholder derivative complaint against our CEO, Mark Yoseloff, our President, Paul Meyer, our CFO, Richard Baldwin, our General Counsel, Jerome Smith, and the current members of our Board of Directors. The Company was also named as a nominal defendant. The complaint was filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Nevada. The complaint, on behalf of the Company alleges breach of fiduciary duty and related causes of action against the defendants. The allegations generally relate to the restatement of the Company’s Fiscal 2006 annual results, and are very similar to the allegations in the three class actions suits described above. There are also allegations relating to our acquisition of Stargames. The complaint seeks an unspecified amount of damages. None of the defendants have yet been served with the complaint.
