L$4,485,600 remains in Restricted Assets, part of the L$44,854,544 total Shareholder Equity.
Overall, steadily increasing revenue in all sectors and continued development and opportunities related to Linden Lab’s Skill Gaming polices place FUN at the forefront of the Skill Gaming sector as it enters an exciting new phase. Reflecting its positive long-term outlook and the momentum associated with growth and expansion initiatives, Shareholder dividends rose 11% from L$406,894 to L$450,785. The dividend will be paid today to all Shareholders of record, to continue the intention that dividends will be paid on the 7th of each month.
KariAnne Starsmith, FUN President, commented, “We are thrilled that we had a great month of revenue and traffic during the lazy days of Summer, and that we we’re able to increase dividends to our valued Shareholders. Our hard work is paying off as our Skill Game Operator application is moving along smoothly, we were converted to a Skill Gaming Region, and our attorney is preparing our Reasoned Legal Opinions (“RLOs”). We are grateful that our Shareholders have stayed with us, and happy to say that more good news is coming. We’re looking forward to it and and thank our Shareholders, Team, Partners and friends!”
