Exhibit A

The Registrant has re-evaluated its accounting methodology surrounding its advances to and contractual relationships with Indian tribes. Management has determined, as is becoming the dominant practice in the industry, to retroactively account for the advances to Indian tribes as in-substance structured notes pursuant to Emerging Issues Task Force (EITF) Issue No. 96-12 Recognition of Interest Income and Balance Sheet Classification of Structured Notes and give separate accounting recognition to the contractual notes receivable and the related contract rights when advances are made pursuant to the agreements. Historically, the Registrant recorded its advances to Indian tribes as development expenses or notes receivable that were carried at cost, subject to allowances for doubtful collectibility, and deferred recognition of interest income, if any, due to the contingent repayment terms of the notes.

The Registrant has determined that a portion of such advances should be capitalized as receivables or interests in management contracts that are acquired as part of development agreements. Accordingly, recognized expenses will be decreased, resulting in increased net income. While the precise effect has not been determined, it is expected that long-term assets related to Indian casino projects, retained earnings at December 31, 2004 and net income for 2004 and 2005 will increase. There will be no effect on cash flows for either annual period.

The Registrant anticipates filing its Form 10-KSB no later than April 14, 2006 and the filing of a Form 8-K explaining the re-evaluation of this accounting methodology next week. The Registrant will also file amended Forms 10-QSB for the quarterly periods ended March 31, June 30 and September 30, 2005.
