On January 11, Eilers & Krejcik Gaming announced that it has acquired the assets of Fantini Research including its existing portfolio of gaming-related news publications and its virtual trade show business.
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.
“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.
Fantini Research was founded in 2000 by Frank Fantini. Fantini Research publications include the daily Fantini’s Gaming Report, the weekly Public Policy Review, and monthly National Revenue Report and monthly Sports Betting & iCasino Revenue Report.
“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 and Eilers will continue to co-publish the Eilers-Fantini Slot Survey and Game Performance reports, and Fantini will continue to pen his Fantini’s Finance columns for GGB Magazine and GGB News.
