Cambodian and Vietnamese casino operator Donaco International announced the appointment of Joan Dabon as company secretary, effective immediately.
The information was disclosed by filling in the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX).
‘Ms. Dabon is a Chartered Secretary with Source Governance and has over 7 years’ experience in providing company secretarial and corporate advisory services to ASX and NSX listed companies across a variety of sectors, including mining, property development, logistics and distribution, manufacturing, and agriculture,’ the company stated.
‘She has also acted as a company secretary for public unlisted and proprietary companies, monitoring and managing their corporate governance and compliance frameworks.’
In August Donaco International reported a revenue of AU$24.33 million ($15.8 million) for the fiscal year 2023, marking an increase of 897 percent from the previous year.
The company has achieved a positive EBITDA of AU$9.61 million ($6.2 million), a reversal from the negative EBITDA of AU$4.4 million ($2.9 million) in FY22. China’s reopening has directly benefited Donaco International‘s performance.
Donaco notes that both casinos, DNA Star Vegas and Aristo, have reached their full operational capacity, with Aristo also nearing a return to full operations.
