SANDPIPER Digital Payments AG: PlayPass, a portfolio company, wins

prestigious 'Entrepeneur of the Year' award

St. Gallen, Switzerland / Brussels, October 2017: SANDPIPER Digital Payments

AG ("SANDPIPER", ISIN: CH0033050961, Ticker: SDP,, a

leading company in Europe for cashless payment systems and services

announces, that PlayPass has won the prestigious 'Entrepreneur of the Year'

award, presented by the Flemish government. This award is a recognition for

fast growing innovative and promising companies, excelling in their

development phase.

PlayPass provides event organizers with platform solutions that enable them

to increase revenue, operate more efficiently and deliver a better visitor

experience. Founded in December 2012, the company has 30 employees, and is

active in 16 countries on 5 continents. PlayPass has grown organically, with

headquarters in Belgium and satellite offices in New York and Singapore. In

addition, it is setting up offices in the UK and Spain and will invest

heavily in Germany as a hub for central Europe.

David De Wever, founder and CEO of PlayPass: "We are honored to have

received this prestigious award. It is a thankful recognition for the

massive effort of our team over the past years."

This young enterprise is an example of how new digital business models are

expanded, based on existing competences in the area: the cluster of

concerts, events and music business. The jury praises the company for its

courage to keep focusing on this niche market and to roll it out globally,

before distributing its products and services in other sectors as well. The

payment solutions that PlayPass offers have a lot of growth potential. But

technology of course evolves rapidly, meaning this company will have to keep

adjusting. Management however is aware of that. With this recognition, we

want to encourage other entrepreneurs in Flanders to realize their dream,

with a healthy dose of realism and knowledge that is often acquired in more

traditional activities. This way PlayPass is the perfect ambassador for the

new entrepreneurship in Flanders ", says Geert Noels, president of the jury.

PlayPass is expanding rapidly and is hiring 20 employees in 4 countries in

the next few months. For more information, please visit
