Mr. Levy commented, "I am very excited to be involved in the early stages of what clearly will become a very large business opportunity.  The Fanthrowdown technology platform is impressive, and I look forward to working closely with management to formulate strong marketing and sales plans, and also to help structure meaningful strategic partnerships."  

SportsLine,com was founded in 1994 and went public in 1997 on NASDAQ, where it traded until 2004 when CBS acquired the company.  In addition to CBS Sports, Mr. Levy forged alliances with AOL, the NFL, the NBA, MLB, various players' associations and many superstar athletes.  Mr. Levy has also been the subject of numerous articles in Fortune, Business Week and Forbes, including being featured in a Forbes cover story.  He was also named as one of Sporting News 100 most powerful people in sports for three consecutive years.

From 2008 through 2010, Mr. Levy was CEO of OPEN Sports Network, Inc., a next-generation Internet service offering advanced fantasy sports applications. OPEN Sports entered into an agreement with FOX Sports to provide fantasy football products on FOXSports.com for the 2008 and 2009 NFL seasons.

Robert Ladd, President and Chief Executive Officer of MGT, summarized, "Mike is among the original trailblazers in online sports, with broad experience and unparalleled contacts.  In the past several months, we have seen large media/entertainment companies such as Comcast and IAC/Interactive Corporation make investments in the daily fantasy space, and we are thrilled to have someone of Mike's stature overseeing this exciting opportunity for MGT."
