MARKET OVERVIEW

Online Gaming is the future of industry

The online gambling industry is one of the biggest and most rapidly expanding global markets at this time. With a net worth of $35 billion in 2013, this growth is forecast to accelerate for at least the next five years across all sectors of the market and expected to peak after 2018. Technology continues to play a pivotal role in developing the industry, with internet and mobile gaming reaching an ever-expanding global customer base.

Sports betting represents the leading market segment in terms of revenue and accounting for more than 40% of the market. Digital gambling, which includes mobile, TV-based and online services, attracts a rising number of customers with some gambling sites reporting that as much as half of their traffic now comes from mobile. Operators are focusing on M&A to boost revenue and secure market share. Established gambling operators are concentrating on moving into the digital arena, offering their services online and in new territories.

Online and mobile gambling is an unprecedented game-changer for the industry. The market will perform strongly benefitting from a recovering economy and expansion into emerging markets like Asia and Latin America. The games that dominate are wagering, casino and poker. Currently, Europe and Asia appear to be the fastest growing online gambling markets followed closely by the US with endless choices of games, websites and apps on offer to the consumer.

About 55% of the world's population takes part in some form of gambling every year, creating obvious opportunities and financial benefits in the primary and secondary markets. As the market matures, iGamers become more demanding and expect a more sophisticated online gaming experience. Software development, innovative customer interfaces, security and reliability are essential for gaming operators to stay ahead of the competition.

The evolution of the online and mobile gambling industry has had a particular positive impact on companies supplying Technology, Financial and Systems services to an increasing number of gaming operators and aggregators. Power Eight International (Power 8) is one such company, producing consistent year-on-year growth, servicing iGaming operators and intermediaries across the globe in one of the most exciting and fastest growing industries.

OUR STRATEGY

The key to our success is to
think about our client's goals

Power8 has a great number of shareholders in every continent across the globe. Some of our largest shareholders are our long-term clients. Investment funds are deployed to strengthen the company’s capital base, to fund on-going expansion, technology development and market capitalization so that Power8 can become the market leader in the provision of online gaming and sports betting technology. Our corporate investment strategies optimize the individual objectives of our shareholders for yield and capital growth while benefiting the Company as a whole.

 

OUR AIM

The longest journey starts with knowing where you want to go

With the proliferation of online gaming set to gather pace globally, we aim to be the online and mobile gaming industry leader by 2020, when we anticipate a public listing of the company’s shares on a major international stock exchange. A public listing of the company’s shares will generate the funds required to secure Power8’s market leading position and provide shareholders with consistent and significant return on their investment.

 

POWER8 ADVANTAGES

Price is what you pay. Value is what you get.

At Power8, we understand the three key factors to success. The first is lowering the cost of customer acquisition for our clients. This focuses on driving visitors to our affiliate’s site and most importantly converting them into active players, with promotions and gaming experiences that excite and engage even the most demanding iGamers.

The second ingredient is the ability to maximise life time player values, by retaining players on our affiliate’s site. We achieve this with innovative products to create any virtual experience from the thrill of a trip to the lively casinos of Las Vegas or Macau and in contrast buying that potentially life changing lottery ticket from the comfort of home. At Power8 we have it all with cutting edge products and industry leading managed services.

The third factor is our unrivalled knowledge of local market demands and interests. What appeals in Europe may not attract players in Asia and vice versa. The strategic acquisition of a portfolio of companies serving the various local markets, from the US to Europe and Asia, enables Power8 to draw on an unrivalled pool of talent and resources to create tailored and relevant solutions for our clients in all territories.

While the gaming operators are the known face of online and mobile gaming, gambling equipment and technology vendors, such as Power8, provide the real backbone to the industry. Our market leading position has made us the go-to trusted partner in online gaming and sports betting.

 

LEGACY BRAND

A company cannot leave a better legacy to
the world than a profitable company with
happy shareholders

Power8 in its aim to become a legacy brand is delighted to announce that with effect from 1st January 2014 it became an official sponsor of Fulham FC which is playing its 13th consecutive season in the Barclays’ English Premier League (http://www.fulhamfc.com/sponsorship/sponsors). Additionally, the company has with effect from the same date joined an EPL-endorsed affiliate program which provides for Power8’s logo to be displayed by way of LED pitch side advertising at all home games of a further 10 Premier League clubs.

January 2014 - Fulham FC

This combined initiative means that between 1st of January 2014 and the end of the current Premier League season in May, the Power8 logo will be featured very prominently at around 100 English Premier League games and be seen by an estimated audience of 2 billion people across the globe.

Power8 is already negotiating with a few football teams across Europe to take up a bigger sponsorship role for the next few years. Such move will seal the legacy of Power8 brand as a gaming technology & financial provider.

 

Everton Football Club was formed in 1878 and has throughout its time been one of the most recognized football clubs in England, Europe and Asia. It was one of the founding members of The Football League in England in 1888 and has played in the top division of English Football for more than 110 seasons!

Everton FC is followed by millions of fans across the world and in recent years has produced great football talents such as Alan Ball, Howard Kendall, Neville Southall, Wayne Rooney, Jack Rodwell and Ross Barkley, just to name a few.

The club has been well managed throughout its history and its motto, "Nil Satis Nisi Optimum", meaning "Nothing but the best is good enough” is indeed very similar to the business philosophy of Power8.

In May 2014, Power8 entered into a commercial partnership agreement with Everton FC. This partnership designates Power8 as the Exclusive Official IT Solutions Partner and one of the Official Club Partners of Everton Football Club.

Among the highlights of this partnership are:

  1. The rights for Power8 to use Everton F.C., Manager and Players’ Intellectual Properties and Image Rights.
  2. 8 minutes of LED digital perimeter board advertising at every Premier League, FA Cup and Carling Cup home games (Goodison Park) displaying Power8 logo and message.
  3. Pre and Post-Match Interview Backdrop display of Power8 logo.
  4. The use of Everton F.C. digital media platform for Power8 promotion and advertising.
  5. Match-Day Advertising for Power8 on Match-Day Program & Scoreboard.
  6. Other non-commercial benefits.

The management of Power8 is fully confident that this multi-year partnership effective 2014/15 season will continue indefinitely and the benefit it brings to both parties will be mutual and fully in line with Power8’s long term vision to create a Legacy Brand.

 

Barcelona

Barcelona was founded around 2000 years ago and today, it is one of the world’s most impressive cities and one of the principal tourist, economic, trade fair, exhibition and cultural-sports centres in the world. With a population of nearly 5 million, it is the largest Metropolis on the Mediterranean Sea, and was visited by over 8 million tourists in 2013.

Barcelona has a long sporting tradition. The city hosted the 1992 Summer Olympics and has since become an influential city in commerce, education, entertainment, media, fashion, science and the arts. Over 2 billion people watched, learnt and had their perception of Barcelona changed forever.

There is no doubt that most Barcelonians love sports. Sailing, basketball, tennis and most of all, football. Two of the largest football clubs in Barcelona are RCD Espanyol and FC Barcelona. The Catalan derby between RCD Espanyol and FC Barcelona is one of the most widely watched football games in Europe & Asia.

RCD Espanyol

Reial Club Deportiu Espanyol de Barcelona, better known as RCD Espanyol was founded in 1900. Since the founding of the Spanish premier league, “La Liga”, in 1929, Espanyol has been one of the most consistent teams playing in the top division. Espanyol’s home games are currently played at Estadi Cornellà-El Prat which seats 40,500 spectators. Completed in the summer of 2009, this 4 star category stadium in accordance with UEFA catalogue is one of the most modern in Spain.

 

RCD Espanyol

Power8

Power8 is very proud to be the new PRINCIPAL SPONSOR OF RCD ESPANYOL and THE OFFICIAL SPONSOR OF RCD ESPANYOL STADIUM. This Sponsorship Agreement is for a period of 7 Sporting Seasons (7 years), from mid 2014 until mid of 2021.

As the principal sponsor of Espanyol, the Power8 Logo will appear on the front of the team’s jerseys starting with the 2014/15 season and continuing until the 2020/21 season, a total of 7 consecutive years.

As the Official Sponsor of RCD Espanyol Stadium, the stadium will be renamed as Power8 Stadium during the 7 years from 2014/15 until 2020/2021.

This naming agreement is not only a great honor and achievement for Power8 but it also places the company among the leading Gaming Technology provider. A very similar and renowned sponsorship agreement was signed between Emirates and Arsenal FC in England.

Power8’s Legacy & Brand Penetration

This sponsorship deal with RCD Espanyol in addition to the agreement with Everton FC will secure and firmly establish Power8’s global branding strategy. With live telecast matches in Spain and England (two of the most widely watched football leagues in Europe), the Power8 brand will be seen by millions of global viewers every week.

Over the weeks, months and years, the Power8 brand will become very well-known and accepted in our business sector. In fact, this strategy is very much in line with our long-term goal of penetrating the online non-gambling gaming market. While the global gambling market is estimated at 40 billion USD annually, the non-gambling market turnover is almost twice this amount.

Management estimates that the commercial return from this sponsorship cum partnerships arrangement will be in the range of hundreds of millions of dollars a year. These deals have definitely secured the financial return of Power8’s shareholders in terms of dividends and share value appreciation for years to come.
