Gordon Yuen, CEO of Elixir Gaming, commented, "With gaming machines now in operation throughout 14 venues on a revenue share basis in the Asia-Pacific region, Elixir Gaming's primary focus is on driving continued improvements in the net win per day per machine as this will increase our return on investment in each of our markets. We are already achieving notable growth across many venues since initiating the operational improvement plan in the second quarter and we remain confident in the long-term effectiveness of this strategy.
"Our venue operating improvement plans are comprehensive and highlight the strength of our customer relationships. In addition to slot floor reconfigurations and changes to the game mix we are providing additional services and technical support at each venue. With recently renegotiated contracts for 9 Cambodian venues, Elixir Gaming is generating substantially higher revenue share on the net win per machine at these properties compared with levels based on the initial agreements in this market. These initiatives are helping to drive cash flow improvements."
