We achieved record EGM participation revenue and consolidated average net win which along with strict cost control resulted in the generation of meaningful adjusted EBITDA and positive GAAP earnings. With a sound base of solid recurring cash flow and a growing cash position, which has reached approximately $13 million as of May 6, 2011, we are well positioned to expand our business model and execute on our casino development plans within emerging gaming markets in the Indo-China region.”
