Caribbean Casino Gaming Corp. Issues Shareholder Update and Ultimatum(February 21, 2012)
MIAMI, FL -- (Marketwire) -- 02/21/12 -- Caribbean Casino Gaming Corp. (PINKSHEETS: CGAQ) ("the Company") is pleased to update its shareholders and supporters of recent activity. The Company's CEO, Steven Swank, reports that he has been working non-stop on 6 major projects for the past two months. He recently returned from a highly productive trip to the Dominican Republic and Costa Rica.
The Company would like to emphasize that these projects are "in the works" and in no way wishes to represent that they will come to fruition without further negotiation, due diligence and good faith by all parties involved. This report is intended as a "business activity update" only.
1. The Sosua Bay Casino & Disco reports its two most profitable quarters since the opening. The recently added "VIP" lounge in the disco seems to have had the desired effect. "This Casino is the busiest and most profitable on the entire North Coast of DR," stated Swank. Financial reports will be released in April 2012.
2. Acquisition of Casino & Disco in San Francisco, DR. This establishment has been recently expanded and is profitable.
3. Acquisition of Casino & Disco in Santo Domingo, DR. Brand new construction on Disco is complete. Casino is still being finished.
4. Acquisition of Casino & Disco in Puerto Plata, DR. This is part of 13 acre beach front resort containing 200 condos with a hotel, pool, and restaurant. It is currently valued at $25M and includes engineered plans for expansion. It has been recently remodeled and reopened. The Company has had two attorneys performing due diligence on this property for the last two months. It is the Company's goal to acquire the entire complex. Early profit projections indicators are very favorable. "This project has great potential for us, we are pursuing every avenue to make this deal work," said Swank. Funding for this project will come from a mortgage and accredit investors who would acquire CGAQ stock. Debt service and expenses look to be easily covered by current and projected revenues.
5. The Company has issued an ultimatum to the DR Track Commission, stating that either the track be granted to the Company or it will rescind its offer. "That track is deteriorating every day," said Swank, "so with all these exciting deals on the table, we need to utilize the track funds where we know we can make some money. They told us we would have a decision at the end of last year. We can't afford to wait around any longer."
And last, but not least,
6. Joint Venture fine tuning has been underway with Global Gaming Labs in Costa Rica. A deal is being crafted whereby the two companies will join forces to market the Gamebase Kiosk aggressively. The deal will stipulate the use of GGL's interface built into the Company's kiosk. "I'm very pleased with our arrangement so far," stated Swank, "I look forward to reporting a definitive deal that will benefit us both."
Again, the Company wishes to express that this is a "business activity report" only. It is intended to keep shareholders informed of the Company's direction and strategy, but in no way does it guarantee any of these deals will come to fruition. "I have an obligation to my loyal shareholders," said Swank. "I would prefer to announce completed acquisitions, but until that happens, I thought it best to let everyone know what we are working on."
