Simplicity Esports already has the largest footprint of esports gaming center in the U.S.
Boca Raton, Florida, May 24, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Simplicity Esports and Gaming Company (OTCQB:WINR) (“Simplicity Esports”), announced today that it intends to continue the expansion of its corporate owned esports gaming center footprint through the buildout of at least 30 new esports gaming centers over the next 18 to 24 months. The disruptions in commercial real estate caused by COVID-19 lockdowns have allowed Simplicity Esports to strengthen its existing relationships with national landlords by signing new locations with percentage rent leases. The locations will range between 2,000 and 4,000 sq ft and be primarily located inside of shopping malls.
Roman Franklin, CEO of Simplicity Esports, stated, “I believe the disruptions in commercial real estate caused by COVID-19 lockdowns have created a once in a lifetime opportunity to more than double the size of our gaming center footprint with percentage rent leases. We are seizing that opportunity by securing many attractive spaces while some COVID-19 restrictions are still in place. I expect the opening of these locations to result in significant revenue growth, and profitability once they are operating at full capacity.”
Simplicity Esports previously announced that its recent esports gaming center acquisitions generated over $3,000,000 in revenue in 2019.
Additionally, Simplicity Esports intends to list its common stock and warrants on The NASDAQ Capital Market or the NYSE American. There is no guarantee that the listing application will be approved by The Nasdaq Capital Market or the NYSE American.
