PartyGaming founders quit board

Two of PartyGaming’s founders, Anurag Dikshit and Vikrant Bhargava, have
stepped down from the online gaming giant’s board to improve compliance with the
combined code.

PartyGaming said the decision by Dikshit and Bhargava would re-establish ‘the
balance between independent and non-independent directors in compliance with the
Combined Code’.

Dikshit, the technological mastermind behind the company’s online gaming
system, will stay on at PartyGaming to work exclusively on developing
technology. Bhargava is expected to leave the company at the end of the year.

Dikshit and Bhargava are among the largest shareholders in PartyGaming, with
stakes of 31% and 8.5% respectively.
