The Company is addressing each property’s COVID-19 ticket sales protocols, coupled with their timing and availability of ticket inventory. We are continually monitoring the Las Vegas entertainment marketplace to determine when and if we will be able to commence viable operations again.We plan to seek additional available disaster assistance, as well as other forms of financing to help with liquidity during this disruption to our business.Financial Summary Results:With the closure of entertainment on the Las Vegas Strip due to COVID-19, and therefore the cessation of revenue for our business, the Company’s generated no revenues in the third quarter of 2020, and first nine months 2020 revenues decreased to $1,957,000, or 80%, as compared to $9,703,000 in the first nine months of 2019.
