Transcript

Mark. Johnston,

Hello, once again everyone I'm Mark. Johnston, your host at vid conferences and vid TV, we have a remarkable opportunity for our very first inaugural vidcast. And we have the great pleasure of walking welcoming Konrad Wasiela, CEO and founder of ESE Entertainment. How are you Konrad? 

Konrad Wasiela

I'm fantastic and really excited to chat with you today. 

Mark. Johnston,

Likewise likewise always a great journey with you. The company itself is so interesting, and I know there's some pretty fantastic news that's coming out of the company as well. So I really want to open the floor for you, but let's just start with an overall. We're ending order one here. I know we have operations in North America over in Europe as well. It's a busy company, a great team from what we've seen in the past, with some of the introductions to who's on your board and who works the inner workings of the company. But let's cut right to the chase. I'm gonna step aside because my understanding is that you have some pretty special news coming out of the company

Konrad Wasiela

Numbers, don't lie, 4,069% growth year over year 8.03 million dollars on the quarter. Just a phenomenal quarter for us. And the reason I'm smiling is because you too are just around the corner and we anticipate similar type growth for you too. All the hard work, all the dedication. Long hours are really shining now and you can't deny numbers. I mean these are official numbers and it just motivates me so much. Now, we're just even more excited to get our Q2 numbers out because we anticipate them being even stronger. So it's just a phenomenal time in the company and it's really special to see the growth really shine now. 

Mark. Johnston,

Excellent, I appreciate that insight, comrade and congratulations on the happy news, coming out of the company, I will ask you for some more specific detailed information on where the numbers are your percentage of year to year? That was recently shared pretty impressively. I just want to understand exactly where that is number wise for you and the company. And then also, How did you get there? I know there's been a lot of strategic moves by the company. 

Konrad Wasiela

Yeah. Absolutely. I mean it's mind-boggling but you know 4,000 plus percent growth year over year on the quarter over eight million plus for the quarter as I mentioned. And you know how we get there? This is the exciting part. A lot of that. Organic. Coming from the acquisitions, we did, but we also just completed another acquisition, that has an additional 24 million of revenue and over four million of profit. So we're going to be able to now take those revenues and put that on our books for Q2. So, I mean, it's just unbelievable. I mean, Q2 is gonna be massive for us, our acquisition strategy, our game plan from day one has been executed perfectly and now it's all coming out. We're unlocking. The synergies. And the vision is now a reality. Fantastic convert. 

Mark. Johnston,

Thank you for that. I certainly understand that at the helm of a company such as this that you have your eyes and your hands on many pieces of a lot of moving parts inside the machine and you know M&A certainly a growth opportunity for companies that see that opportunity. I want to just get a little more details from you. If I can talk about the acquisition of game addict, what that means to the company and how they're particular customers and existing clients, how that takes you further into the realm of igaming.

Konrad Wasiela

 Yeah, absolutely. I mean, game addict. It was not just a tremendous acquisition from a revenue standpoint but we were able to bring on a tier one group of operators and that was very important for us and it's been important for us since day one, not only acquiring a great company but great people and these guys are ready to scale. They bring a whole new set of clients that we haven't worked with in the past. And we also have a bunch of clients that they haven't worked through the past. So it's just unlocking, you know, synergies making those connections, incorporating our operations together and we're really gonna accelerate both of our businesses. They're just such a great fit for us. There's scalable technology within their business and technology that we could utilize internally across all our assets. So that's the exciting part, you know. Now we're scaling. Now, we have the tech to scale a massive new client base. You know, they've worked with groups like roblox, they work with Game of Thrones, You know, these phenomenal games that we're gonna start working with hopefully in the future, too. And it is just like I said, it just unlocks those synergies, which is the exciting part.

Mark. Johnston,

 Fantastic. Thank you. Konrad  that gives us more insight into recent acquisitions and what it does. For the company. Overall, I'm always curious and we've done this before because of some great conversations you and I had in the past and here's this remarkable human being who drove into the CFL. How has time as a football player moved into gaming? Move into e-sports and here you are sitting on top of the pile of success and growth and opportunity with the team inside that really believes in your vision. It seems Where do you go from here? I know there's been some comments around Metaverse and some really interesting buzzwords lately as ESE. Entertainment evolves, We have some remarkable footage, I'll say that you provided of the studios. I believe it's over in Poland, where you've got the activity of studio energy. Which of course, those of us in production still love to this day. It's in our blood. But looking forward, you've done all that now. And, the next turning point seems like it's taking you to new heights. Tell me more about that. 

Konrad Wasiela

Yeah, this is what I love about gaming in general. I mean, the sky is really the limit. I mean it's just constantly evolving, there's new opportunities and real opportunities. I mean, look at the, you know, the Metaverse opportunity coming in,  NFTs Oh, all these things culminating. But, you know, the foundation is laid with gaming, and we're right in the thick of it. So for us, to enter into those new spaces is seamless, but that's the exciting part, you know, there's literally no limit to this industry. We're starting to make money and metaverse or securing contracts. Our gaming developers and partners are now getting into this space and hiring us for new projects. I mean, it's just phenomenal. That's really the beauty of this sector. The sky is really the limit and we're seeing it internally. I mean, look at our numbers, it's all proof is in the pudding, right? And it's just it's exciting to be in this space right now. 

Mark. Johnston,

Beautiful, thanks for that comment. I do want to ask a bit more from the investor side because of course at VID Conferences and VID TV and our role here is to bring investors and companies like yourself together. So investors really get a deep dive into a company to make their own informed decisions on their investment opportunities. So with that in mind, the timing of the recent acquisition and the growth, I think it's five subsidiaries  that you have now with ESE entertainment. I mean it's quite an ecosystem is the word I would use. How can investors take this opportunity now based on where the business structure is in terms of these other companies reporting under  the umbrella of ESE 

Konrad Wasiela

It's a tremendous opportunity for investors and potential shareholders to take a closer look at the company because Q2 is gonna be the first quarter of a fully consolidated group. So all the five subsidiaries will be fully reported in Q2. So you'll see the whole spectrum pertains to the revenue of how well we're doing as a company and how fast we're growing. You're also going to get a unique insight into the organic growth that's happening in the company, which is very important. But it's just you know, you're getting in on day one, basically of a company that has just locked in their five core pieces and ready to scale. So it's a tremendous opportunity to get in and to follow the story and watch us grow because we're unlocking some really cool synergies internally and, you know,  it could be a great opportunity for shareholders.

Mark. Johnston,

 I hear that. Thank you, as always good to hear from the source inside the company, where your thoughts are for the investor's interests. So appreciate that, curious as well about the people. You have on your team at this point Konrad. As you move through mergers and acquisitions, you build the company to a stronger and larger ecosystem who are the key players, who are the stars that really attracted you to a certain Gamatic. For example, the management how they've run that brand and as it comes under your umbrella ESE, entertainment, I'm curious about some of the names and stars out there that are now moving into your brand. 

Konrad Wasiela

Yeah, I mean, I have to give credit to the management team. We have great directors. We're very lucky to have some of the best gaming, lawyers in the world that help with our M&A process, you know, Rick Brace, former president of Rogers Media, you know, these are guys with uncanny experience and they've been helping coach me, and, and help strategize with the whole team. And it's working. And it's working very well with how everything is kind of played out with our strategy as it pertains to M&a's. And  basically we're just gonna continue that same strategy. I mean it's working and it's working well so we're gonna stick to it.

Mark. Johnston,

Okay this makes sense, I appreciate that insight as well Konrad in terms of where things go from here we're just ending quarter one, you're moving into quarter two obviously a lot of energy's moved already and you can see in your face you're quite excited about where 2022 is taking ESE Entertainment. I'll say congratulations on the effort and the legwork. I know a lot of decision making goes into these moments for a company to evolve to the next level, I'm just curious for you as investors. What should we be watching for say in the next three to six months from ESE Entertainment 

Konrad Wasiela

Yeah, like I said, buckle up for the release of the Q2 financials and just follow the news. I mean this is tremendous news. Today, we signed a massive partnership with a group out of Germany we're entering into that market, the biggest market in all of Europe. And just work very consistent with the news. We like to tell the story. I'm always eager to get on camera to tell the story because I love the company and really enjoy what I do. So we try to be as consistent as possible telling the story and just take the extra minute, or two to read and dive into our news releases. I mean, we're partnering with some of the biggest players in the world and I try my best to be, you know, on camera as much as possible. I buy my own shares and I just bought 10,000 more shares. I haven't sold one share since we launched. So, I mean, I'm leading by example and the team is executing at the highest level. And I think that should be the most important thing for potential shareholders, to look at who's leading the company. He continues to buy his, the shares he continues to deliver, they're putting up tremendous numbers. You know, give us that extra five minutes, do some research on us and I think you'll be blown away. 

Mark. Johnston,

Terrific, Thank you. And always it's, it's an opportunity for investors to really dig into a company. Do their own research and make informed decisions. That's why we're here as a brand at VID Conferences and VID TV. So I appreciate that. Let's imagine, we're teaming up again, say a year from now on, right. Just dream into that moment for a second and say, a year later where things might have gone. I mean, you've clearly made some strategic moves of late. I'm just wondering into 2023, we look back in an interview at the end of March 2022, one other area or points of development. You think we might be talking about that time? Is it possible to share anything you have in your dream? 

Konrad Wasiela

Yeah. We made a very conscious decision to plant our flag in North America with our gamematic acquisition. So we know the very substantial office out of Montreal we want to continue to scale and grow in North America, you know, fast forward a year. I haven't been shy from day one. I really believe this is a billion plus market cap company and we will get there. It's just, everyone is so dedicated to this project and this company and we have the roadmap to do it. So I think in a year he's gonna change significantly. I think we're gonna continue to grow but based on how fast we're growing, it's gonna be exciting. I'm excited to come back in a year. Let's put it that way. 

Mark. Johnston,

Well, we'll look forward to hosting you again at VIDcast and VIDTV as well. Konrad, you're always  a delight  to talk to. The energy comes through your smile but where the company is and I think investors around the world really appreciate hearing from the source, what's happening inside the company. So this works well for us at this point is our inaugural vidcast to get out to the world. I know that you'll be doing new and exciting things as you move forward as a company and of course, we will be watching here at VID Conferences to share that message with the world. So I wish you and your team all the best. We always appreciate your open, honest, input, and congratulations on where things are and we look forward to seeing where things go. 

Konrad Wasiela

Absolutely, I love being on. I love sharing the story. So, let's stay in touch. And I know, we'll, we'll have a nice chuckle, one day, when we look back at where we're at now, because we're heading in a specific direction and it's going up. 


 

Beautiful. Beautiful. Only way up. I appreciate that Konrad.. Thanks for your time and all the best. We'll talk to you soon. Fantastic.
