Copyright 2008 Eidos plc Press Release

[ November 13th 2008 ]

SCi Entertainment Group plc, the holding Company of Eidos Interactive Limited, is publishing its Interim Management Statement for the period from 1 July 2008 to 11 November 2008, in accordance with the UK Listing Authority's Disclosure and Transparency Rules.

The financial year has commenced in line with our expectations. As planned, no major products were launched in this period with the majority of revenues derived from the continued sell through of back catalogue titles and distribution of third party products.

Tomb Raider Underworld will be released to plan on 18 November in North America and 21 November in Europe on the major platforms of Xbox 360, PLAYSTATION 3, Nintendo Wii, Nintendo DS and PC Games for Windows. A PlayStation 2 version is also due for release in the New Year.

The much anticipated eighth instalment in the Lara Croft franchise is the first to be led by development on current generation technology and is the first Christmas release since the year 2000.

Despite the challenging economic environment we believe the game will perform to our expectations and we are pleased with the initial feedback. As we move through the launch of Tomb Raider Underworld our level of working capital will increase, covered by our 25m committed debt facility, before decreasing as we receive income from the game.

We shall be updating the market on trading in January when we will have information on the performance of Tomb Raider Underworld.
