Total gaming participation revenues for the third quarter of 2011 was $4.4 million, this represent 7% growth from the same period last year. This growth was driven by consolidated average net win of $145 proceeds due primarily by our operations at NagaWorld, which achieved average net wins of $233 for the quarter.

Adjusted EBITDA was $2.8 million for the third quarter, essentially in line with our current run rate of approximately $1 million for the month. We achieved another quarter of positive GAAP earnings with net income of $647,000. We have stronger flow from operations. We have maintained a cash possessions of approximately 14 million as of September 30, 2011, up from $10.2 million as of December 31, 2010, while we are using our debt and investing in our growth trend.
