Largest Shareholder of Enthusiast Gaming Holdings Inc. Demands Upgrade of Company Leadership to Deliver on Tremendous Value Creation Opportunity


NEW YORK, May 24, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- A longstanding shareholder of Enthusiast Gaming Holdings Inc. (NASDAQ:EGLX; TSX:EGLX) ("Enthusiast" or the "Company"), Greywood Investments, LLC, which, together with its associates and affiliates ("Greywood"), currently owns over 9.3% of the Company's shares and is its largest shareholder, today sent a letter to Enthusiast's Board of Directors (the "Board"), notifying it of Greywood's intention to upgrade the Company by changing the composition of the Board.

Greywood is optimistic about Enthusiast's exceptional talent and enormous potential but believes this is not reflected in the Company's current value. To unlock Enthusiast's true value, Greywood intends to lead shareholders in upgrading Enthusiast's Board and leadership. In contemplation of Enthusiast's annual general meeting of shareholders to be held on June 29, 2022, Greywood plans to nominate several highly qualified individuals with a strong and diverse range of experiences, expertise, and credentials to enhance the Board of Directors significantly.

As an investor in the Company since 2018, Greywood has repeatedly expressed its concerns regarding the performance of Enthusiast's Board and CEO and has offered solutions on multiple occasions over the last few months. Despite the constructive nature of Greywood's analysis and proposed solutions, its efforts have been met with transparent delay tactics by what appears to have become an entrenched Board and CEO, who have been unwilling or unable to make the requisite changes.

The industry is moving fast and time is of the essence for Enthusiast. The urgency of this situation is highlighted by the Company's share price, which has declined from a high of US$8.64 on April 20, 2021, to US$2.10 per share as of the close of business on May 23, 2022, almost a 76% loss. This compares quite unfavorably to a drop of approximately 16% for the Nasdaq Stock Market and less than 4% for the S&P 500 Index during the same period.

The full text of Greywood's letter to Enthusiast's Board is available at www.UpgradeEGLX.com. Shareholders who would like to stay up to date on Greywood's campaign to "Upgrade Enthusiast" are invited to sign-up for updates via the website.
