This is primarily as a result of the relative small size of the gaming operation being sensitive to the volatility in the gaming industry. In addition to this, the focus for management has been to acquire the Tusk Group to give the company the critical size required to withstand this volatility. Casino operations in particular are subject to volatility resulting from large player wins and losses that affect overall profitability. Poker is not subject to the same volatility as casinos due to the percentage of play revenue model. The Tusk Group have a more balanced mix of Poker and Casinos than the current GLO mix.   Tusk Group Performance As part of the final Due Diligence carried out by the Board of GLO, directors today have been advised by the Tusk Group that the expected NPAT (Net profit after tax) for the full year to 30th June 2006 will be in line with the A$1.61 million reported in Section 4.6 of the Independent Expert’s Report prepared on the 23rd May 2006. Tusk management have further confirmed that the EBITDA forecast of $3.07 million and $4.92 million remain unchanged for the full years ending June 2007 and June 2008. “Operation size is paramount to running a profitable gaming enterprise”, said Mr David Barwick, Chairman of GLO. “This demonstrates the importance of acquiring the Tusk Group to increase our size, provide a balanced mix between Poker and Casinos and have complete control of the management of our gaming properties”. The board has made this announcement today having reviewed results for May and June to date which have been subject to gaming volatility as previously explained. Furthermore directors felt it prudent to provide this information to shareholders ahead of the closing of proxies today for the acquisition of the Tusk Group.   For further enquiries, please contact: David Barwick, Executive Chairman Ph: (07) 3221 9850 Fax: (07) 3221 9838 Email: davidb@globalapproach.com.au
