INSPIRED ANNOUNCES CREDIT RATING UPGRADE FROM MOODY'S

Moody's Upgrades Rating to B2 with a Positive Outlook from B3 with a Stable Outlook

NEW YORK, July 14, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Inspired Entertainment, Inc. ("Inspired" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: INSE), a leading B2B provider of gaming content, systems and solutions, announced today that Moody's Investors Services ("Moody's") has upgraded Inspired's corporate rating to B2 with a positive outlook from a previous rating of B3 with a stable outlook.

According to the report from Moody's, its positive rating outlook reflects Moody's view that, in the next 12-18 months, Inspired's quality content and the increasing penetration of its online products will continue to attract players and gamblers, driving top-line growth and its leverage will rapidly trend downwards.

"Inspired has experienced a strong rebound in revenues since the lifting of Covid restrictions related to betting shops especially in the UK. Despite the trends towards online gaming and betting, the Company's gaming machines remain an appealing form of entertainment. Additionally, the Company's good growth in its online offering demonstrate Inspired's ability to generate high quality content, which is a key differentiator for the company," according to Moody's.

In addition to upgrading the Company's corporate rating, Moody's upgraded Inspired's senior secured global notes rating to B2 from B3 and upgraded the company's probability of default rating to B2-PD from B3-PD. The outlook for both of these has also changed from stable to positive.
