Entertainment Gaming Asia Announces Plans To Develop And Operate A Slot Hall In Poipet Near The Cambodia-Thailand Border

Capital expenditures for the Poipet Project, which principally include the development and construction of the facility and gaming equipment, are projected to be approximately $7.5 million. The Company intends to use not more than $5.0 million of the $7.5 million to source top of the line gaming machines in order to enhance its competitive edge. It is expected that this will primarily be done through the purchase of new and used machines as well as machines from its inventory. The capital expenditures for the slot hall will be funded by the Company's internal cash resources.

Clarence Chung, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Entertainment Gaming Asia, commented, “We are making solid progress in expanding our gaming operations in emerging and growing gaming markets in the Indo-China region. This strategic new project in the desirable Poipet market near the Thailand border offers attractive potential returns and expands our footprint and awareness of the “Dreamworld” brand in our target markets. We believe that our expertise in operating slot halls, planned marketing efforts, and focus on providing high-quality machines and superior customer service will afford us the opportunity to garner a meaningful share of this attractive market.”
