Earlier this month, Eilers & Krejcik Gaming acquired assets of Dover-based Fantini Research including all of its existing gaming-related news publications and its virtual trade show business.
Terms were not disclosed.
Fantini Research was founded in 2000 by long-time Delaware journalist Frank Fantini and grew into a source of business and investing news for the gaming industry.
Fantini Research publications include the daily Fantini’s Gaming Report, weekly Public Policy Review, monthly National Revenue Report, and monthly Sports Betting & iCasino Revenue Report.
“We are very excited about the opportunity to add Fantini Research publications as well as the company’s virtual trade show to the list of services we can provide to our customers,” said Todd Eilers, principal of Eilers & Krejcik Gaming. “We have been partnered with Fantini for over 10 years and we have been a consumer of their reports for over 20 years. Frank Fantini has assembled an outstanding team that is truly dedicated to covering the gaming industry better than any other news outlet,” said Todd Eilers.
“We are equally excited to have achieved this transaction with Eilers & Krejcik Gaming. Todd has proven to be an excellent businessman as well as an analyst and consultant. This sale is both a great opportunity for our team members and assures the continuation of the outstanding services that Fantini Research has provided to its target market of investors and C-suite executives,” Frank Fantini said.
Fantini Research will continue to operate under the Fantini Research brand and will be a separate division of Eilers & Krejcik Gaming. Ashley Diem will assume the role of Executive Editor and Publisher of Fantini Research and will manage the day-to-day operations. Frank Fantini will remain in a consulting capacity and will assist in the integration of Fantini Research. Fantini and Eilers will continue to co-publish the Eilers-Fantini Slot Survey and Eilers-Fantini Game Performance reports.
