HITACHI, JAPAN -- (Marketwire) -- 01/22/13 -- Kinbasha Gaming International, Inc. (OTCQB: KNBA), owner and operator of retail pachinko gaming centers nationally in Japan, today released a letter to shareholders from Masatoshi Takahama, Chief Executive Officer, providing investors with corporate highlights of 2012 and management's vision for the company in 2013.
As Chief Executive Officer of Kinbasha Gaming International, it is my extreme pleasure to speak with you today and bring you details of our corporate growth initiatives and discuss our plans for the future. Our intent is to regularly inform current and potential investors of our progress as Kinbasha capitalizes on the enormous opportunities in Japan's retail gaming space, which is a $227 billion gaming industry and ranked as the country's largest leisure activity.
If you've been following our company, you will certainly appreciate how much we have achieved in the past year. We completed the audits of our financial statements for fiscal 2010, 2011 and 2012 and became a reporting company with the SEC. As a result, the trading of our common stock has moved from the "pink sheets" to the OTCQB.
In the past quarter, we engaged Brean Capital, LLC, a leading New York-based investment banking, securities and investment management firm, to provide strategic corporate finance and investment banking services. This is a major achievement as we begin to utilize Brean Capital's expertise to assist us in our expansion strategies and raising capital in the United States.
In addition to its investment banking services, Brean has agreed to act as Kinbasha's Designated Advisor for Disclosure ("DAD") for enabling the Company to join the OTCQX, the highest marketplace financial platform operated by OTC Markets, Inc. The OTCQX is designed to offer investors transparent trading, superior information and easy access through US registered broker dealers as compared to other over the counter markets.
Needless to say, we are thrilled to have achieved these milestones and we look forward to continuing our momentum in 2013.
Major Highlights of 2012
Strategic Vision for 2013
As we move into 2013, we look forward to continuing this string of positive news and business updates while simultaneously improving our financial position. We anticipate that our top-line revenue in 2013 will continue to build on our progress in 2012 due to our organic growth and consumer demand at our gaming centers and establishments. As we continue to realize new operational milestones, we remain highly focused on improving our financial metrics, with an unequivocal commitment to building shareholder value.
