performance in the last year and a half,” said Lewis Rose, CryptoLogic’s President and CEO. “We’re
making meaningful strides in what continues to be a challenging market. At CryptoLogic, we’ve been
focusing on the fundamentals, and diversifying both our products and our geographic markets. Our

Stronger-Than-Expected Q2 Performance (All financial figures are expressed in U.S. dollars)

In the second quarter, CryptoLogic surpassed expectations by recording $10.8 million in revenue, net income of $2.6 million and diluted earnings per share of $0.21. This also compared strongly to second quarter results in 2002, in which the company posted revenue of $8.9 million and net income of $2.0 million or $0.16 per diluted share before a non-recurring special charge, and a net loss of $7.8 million or $0.65 per diluted share after the special charge.

CryptoLogic continued to execute well on its strategic imperatives as reflected in the strength of its 2003 second quarter results. This better-than-expected performance was evidence of increased deposits driven by a stabilized base business, increased international penetration with existing and new customers, and marketing initiatives including the continued success of the company’s recently introduced poker and
bingo products.
