Fantex, Inc. Files Registration Statement for First-Ever Bundled Unit Linked to Earnings of Ten Separate Professional Athletes

UBS Investment Bank To Serve As Lead Underwriter With Intention To
List Security On NASDAQ

SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Fantex, Inc. announced today it has filed a registration statement on
Form S-1 with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) relating
to a proposed initial public offering of Fantex Sports Portfolio 1
Units. For the first time, Fantex, Inc. will offer an individual
security tied to contracts with multiple professional athletes. This
offering will provide an opportunity to invest in the earnings of ten
players, across two sports and at a variety of career stages through a
single, NASDAQ-listed security. UBS Investment Bank will act as the sole
book-running manager for the proposed offering, with Fantex Brokerage
Services, LLC acting as co-manager. Fantex, Inc. intends to list the
security on the NASDAQ Capital Market under the ticker “FXSP.”


“Our six completed IPOs paved the way to unlocking an asset class
previously closed to the capital markets,” said Fantex, Inc. CEO and
co-founder Buck French. “By bundling multiple tracking stocks into a
single, NASDAQ-listed security, we believe Fantex is providing the next
evolution for those looking to invest in the business of professional
sports.”

Fantex Sports Portfolio 1 Units are linked to cash flows acquired by
Fantex, Inc. – including income generated by current and future playing
contracts, certain endorsements and appearance fees, as well as
potential post-career activities such as broadcasting. Specifically, the
Fantex Sports Portfolio 1 Units are linked to the income generated by
Michael Brockers, Vernon Davis, Andrew Heaney, Alshon Jeffery, EJ
Manuel, Jack Mewhort, Mohamed Sanu, Ryan Shazier, Terrance Williams and
Kendall Wright.

The Fantex Sports Portfolio 1 Units will contain the Fantex Series
Kendall Wright Tracking Stock and, as such, Fantex, Inc. intends to file
an application with the SEC to withdraw its previously filed
registration statement for the Fantex Series Kendall Wright offering.

Fantex, Inc. has filed a registration statement (including a prospectus)
with the SEC for the offering to which this communication relates.

statement and other documents Fantex, Inc. has filed with the SEC for
