NRT Sightline: NRT Technology Completes Acquisition of VisuaLimits, One of the Fastest Growing Gaming Supplier Companies in the US

by September 26, 2017 General
Acquisition of VisuaLimits Strengthens NRT’s Ability to Connect the Guest
Experience™ Across the Entire Casino Resort

LAS VEGAS, 2017-09-26 16:00 CEST (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) —
NRT Technologies, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of NRT Technology Corp.
(together, “NRT”) today announced the successful completion of its acquisition
of VisuaLimits, LLC (“VL”). On September 20 2017, NRT and Sightline Payments
announced an agreement to merge, with the combined entity to be called NRT
Sightline (the “Transaction”). Following close of the Transaction, which
remains subject to gaming regulatory approvals, Sightline’s CEO and Founder,
Kirk Sanford, will assume the role of CEO of NRT Sightline. NRT’s current
Founder, President and CEO, John Dominelli, will become Chairman of NRT
Sightline and will remain active in leading the overall company strategy with a
keen focus on driving the technology roadmap.

The acquisition of VL complements NRT’s innovative and expansive payment
product vision for casinos, which now includes VL’s unique 12-in-1 solution.

The VL-Focus and VL-Flex, with their highly adaptive hardware and software,
delivers a multitude of services to casino operators and patrons alike,
including cashless payments through integration with Sightline’s Play+, an HD
display for gaming, TV, sports score and advertising messaging, dealer
performance (automated hands per hour) and game utilization (automated
headcounts), labor savings with time and attendance through Kronos integration,
sophisticated surveillance, and 2-way communication functionality which allows
dealers to easily contact security, place food and drink orders, and make
dinner or club reservation for players. And because casino operators can
easily integrate VL platforms into their existing table rating system, VL
offers the added benefit of eliminating the clutter and extra price of
redundant hardware. Casino operators can often realize their ROI on VL-Focus
and VL-Flex purchases in less than 3 months.

VL’s newest product, the VL-EYE, interfaces with the VL-Focus to provide a full
surveillance system, including facial, chip, and card recognition capabilities.
Casinos are lining up to be beta sites prior to the VL-EYE’s launch next month
at G2E.

“Just in the last year alone VL has tripled its installed base and will finish
this year with over 4000 ‘intelligent’ VL-Focus devices, adding some well
recognized names to its roster of casino customers, including 8 of the top 10
Global casino operators,” said Dominelli. “And we couldn’t be happier with the
people that will be joining NRT as part of this acquisition. They bring a real
passion and unparalleled expertise to our organization that will truly enable
NRT to Connect the Guest Experience across the entire casino resort.”

“The VL platform is like nothing else out there. We deliver actionable insights
to operators, delivering tangible business improvements, transactional lift
from payments, automated workflows, operational performance improvements and
dynamic regulatory compliance. And operators love VL because our solutions
consolidate the typical array of table games hardware to de-clutter and improve
the overall ‘look and feel’ of gaming tables,” said Ryan McClellan, VL’s
Co-Founder and former COO who now takes on the role of SVP Table Game
Solutions for NRT.

“We have received such overwhelmingly positive feedback from operators about
the VL product and this, coupled with the excitement of the recently announced
VL integration with Sightline’s Play+ solution, convinced us that acquiring VL
made more sense than continuing under a partnership arrangement,” said Michael
Dominelli, VP Product and Marketing for NRT. “Ryan McClellan and his team have
built a truly amazing product suite. The VL platform, along with our slot
machine and redemption kiosk integrations, and pending merger with Sightline,
will allow the combined entity to provide a frictionless payment experience
throughout the entire casino ecosystem.”

Financing for the VL acquisition was provided by Fifth Third Bank
