Electronic Arts Inc. ("EA") announces that, further to the completion of its recommended cash acquisition of the entire issued and to be issued share capital of Codemasters Group Holdings plc ("Codemasters"), which was effected by way of a scheme of arrangement under Part 26 of the Companies Act 2006 on 18 February 2021 (the "Acquisition"), Frank Sagnier and Rashid Varachia, the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer of Codemasters, respectively, have decided to step down from their roles at Codemasters.

Accordingly, this announcement is required under Rule 19.6(b) of the Code.
