Malaysian gaming machine distributor RGB International Bhd has broadened its horizons by supplying social distancing products to gaming outlets as the industry starts the long road to recovery from COVID-19.
While RGB is one of a number of companies to have temporarily suspended operations as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, it revealed in its 2019 annual report, published last week, that the resumption of business in some countries has provided the opportunity to explore new opportunities.
“Beginning from May 2020, the gaming industry in Vietnam has resumed operation and we expect other countries to follow suit in the near future,” the company said by way of a business outlook.
“In view of the requirement for social distancing measures in the respective countries, the Group is exploring the possibility of remote gaming solutions as an alternative for land-based gaming operators. We are also distributing social distancing products such as machine partitions and cashless payment solutions for gaming outlets.
“The situation will remain fluid as governments worldwide adapt to the evolving response to contain the COVID-19 pandemic. Despite the dampened outlook in first half of 2020, we at RGB are positioning ourselves to be ready for the gradual upturn once the uncertainties subside.”
RGB recently announced it has been granted an extension by Bursa Malaysia until 30 June 2020 for the release of its 1Q20 financial results due to Malaysia’s Movement Control Order.
