  1. Revenue growth in the Group's Costa Rica operations is continuing to be impacted by the recession, higher unemployment and a soft gaming market.
  2. Peru gaming properties was impacted by a smoking ban that went into effect on 29 March 2011 in Lima, Peru. Management believes that the impact of the smoking ban will be diminished over time but there are no assurances.
  3. Revenue growth in the Group's Poro Point property in the Philippines was impacted by a smoking ban, where we also believe that the impact will be short term but cannot offer assurances. In Rizal, revenue has been temporarily impacted by ongoing construction that closed certain gaming areas.
