STATEMENT ON FTC ANNOUNCEMENT FROM DRAFTKINGS CEO JASON ROBINS AND FANDUEL CEO NIGEL ECCLES

New York and Boston, June 19, 2017 – Today, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) announced it will attempt to block the proposed merger between DraftKings and FanDuel.

We are disappointed by this decision and continue to believe that a merger is in the best interests of our players, our companies, our employees and the fantasy sports industry. We are considering all our options at this time.

As we work together to determine our next steps, we would like to thank DraftKings and FanDuel players, partners and employees for their patience, support and continued loyalty.
