Subj: The Future of FaZe Clan: Our Biggest Announcement Yet


To the FaZe Clan family,


2021 has been an astounding year for FaZe Clan. We’ve broken new ground in so many ways, by growing and innovating through the pandemic and believe we have established ourselves as the voice of Gen Z. In this year alone, we made history as the first gaming team to grace the cover of Sports Illustrated; Takashi Murakami compared the significance of our collaboration (which generated over $1 million in sales on the first day) to the iconic collaborations between Warhol and Basquiat; we hit a staggering 11 million followers on Instagram; we entered the DC Universe with our own Batman comic book; Daniel Craig dropped into our livestream to promote “No Time to Die”; and just last week alone, we had Nate Hill and Mongraal on the red carpet at the Dune premiere, livestreaming with Timothee Chalamet and Zendaya, while Swagg is seen repping FaZe in a nationally televised trailer for the new Scream movie.


We’re a young company, but we have more than a decade of history behind us. We’ve transformed from a group of kids doing trickshots into a global lifestyle and media platform, rooted in gaming and driving youth culture. We are in high-growth mode, impacting the transformations taking place in sports and entertainment in a meaningful way. It’s in our DNA to disrupt and show up in ways people don’t expect, and today, I’m thrilled to share with you the biggest announcement in our history -- FaZe Clan is going to become a public company.


This is a natural next step in the growth of FaZe Clan. There is no gaming organization, entertainment company or media brand quite like FaZe Clan. We have a tremendous opportunity ahead of us.


In the first quarter of 2022, we plan to close the deal and have our common stock listed on NASDAQ, more resources to further accelerate our growth, bringing our biggest ideas to life. None of this would have been possible without all of your diehard passion, creativity and dedication to FaZe. We’ve worked tirelessly, and we should all be immensely proud of what we’ve accomplished together.


I want to give some extremely important recognition to the brilliant minds and talented individuals who created and developed this brand in its early stages and have continued to grow it day-in and day-out for over a decade... our founders Apex, Banks, CBass, Rain and Temperrr. As my brothers and partners for life, I can't wait to continue on this journey with you.


As for the future of FaZe Clan, we’re going to invest in the brand, our talent and our community:


Our brand: The FaZe Clan brand is our biggest asset, built by world-renowned talent who create some of the most entertaining and cutting-edge content produced today. We will continue to invest in that talent (both current members and future recruits) and keep our fans deeply engaged as we express our brand in new and exciting ways.


Our content: We are experienced in creating content that not only resonates with our fans, but shows up in the formats and on the latest tech platforms our fans care about. Our focus is to expand our presence and venture into new platforms, as well as curate longer-form content.


Consumer products: FaZe Clan has now moved into both apparel and non-apparel products with early success. We also see a real opportunity to accelerate our presence in consumer products via acquisitions.


Gaming: Gaming is an important part of our global brand presence, and we will utilize our leadership in esports to further include more gaming communities and expand internationally. Our incredible teams will continue to be a major force in global competitions and we plan to enter new markets in the near future.


International: And as we move into new markets, we’ll leverage our proven playbook, taking a localized approach to finding new talent to help grow our presence as we continue to cement ourselves as a truly global brand.





FaZe is evolving from a digital publisher into an intellectual property engine, which we believe will unlock new ways to diversify our revenue. We’ll look at new growth opportunities across the creator economy and emerging technologies such as digital goods and the metaverse.


As a public company, we’ll continue to innovate and disrupt while always staying authentic to our roots. It’s critical that we stay true to who we are, and always remember that everything we do is for the FaZe Clan community and fans. We could never have arrived at this day without them and their support.


To learn more about our announcement today, you can read our press release [] and check out this presentation for investors []. If you have any questions, you can always reach out to me, Amit or Tammy, who have been with me at the forefront through this entire process.


There’s still a lot of work to be done before we go public and I’m incredibly excited for what’s to come. Again, none of this would be possible without the immense dedication and hard work from every single one of you. Thank you for everything that you do.


Here’s to a new beginning. FaZe Up!
