“We intend to capitalize on this amazing growth through existing advertising arrangements under which we receive revenues based on the number of times an advertisement is displayed throughout our site, commonly referred to as cost per thousand impressions, or CPMs,” said Shane Murphy, CEO of Bingo.com. “We will also leverage this explosive growth into new relationships with potential sponsorship arrangements under which advertisers sponsor a game or portion of one on our Web site in exchange for which we receive a fixed payment. In addition, we will attempt to elevate our brand through strategic partnership arrangements under which our potential strategic partners will offer co-branded versions of our games on their Web sites and display advertising in connection with the use of our games, in return for which we receive revenues from the related advertising. Bingo.com is experiencing an extraordinary popularity, which should prove extremely profitable for us if we can manage to keep up with demand.”
