We released the new cabinet called Podium and also Advantage 5. These are the two new products of Konami, which we released now in Europe. We are already approved in several jurisdictions, because we are really ready to enter in this market. This products are well accepted in Latin America and in North America, so we are pretty confident that these products will have a very good performance in Europe, too”.

The customers acceptance was very good, our distributors brought many customers to see the new products and everyone is quite interested in starting businesses with Konami and its distributors.

With regards to Latin America, How do you see the market after a difficult year as 2009, with regards to the international economic crisis?
For us, we could say that this year was not difficult. We are very happy with the results in Latin America and believe that next year we will be at the same level,  or even better. Due to the crisis, we agree that all the countries are suffering, but, as we introduced products with positive results for the operators, it was an excellent year for us, really.

Regarding the position and the perspectivas for 2010, Which are the main countries in which you expect to have more growth this year?
In Latin America, now we have our network of servers 100% ready. We signed a contract two weeks ago with a distributor for Peru and Ecuador, and shortly we will do the official release of this server and the products in Peru. In other countries such as Argentina, Chile, Uruguay and Colombia, we are already well established and I think business will now grow more.
