PRESS RELEASE: KSE & Sentinels Update

LOS ANGELES (August 13, 2019) -- Rob Moore, P1 Esports LLC, and KSE have always maintained a wonderful relationship and today we reached a settlement of the recently reported lawsuit between the parties.  Rob and his Sentinels management team have been integral to the success of the LA Gladiators of the Overwatch League, and this settlement is a reflection of their hard work and dedication on behalf of KSE. This is an exciting time for the esports industry, and many organizations are evaluating how to best move forward efficiently.  At this point, we have determined that now is not the right time for us to be engaged in the Echo Fox transaction regardless of our excitement about the opportunity and how successful Riot Games has been and will remain into the future. Rob, KSE, and our entire group are focused on completing the 2019 OWL season on a successful note and growing beyond our strong finish last year.  Once the 2019 season is complete, we will then each make determinations regarding where we want to focus our esports efforts in the future. Let’s go Gladiators!!! #ShieldsUP
