DOVER, Del., Jan. 9, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Gaming industry veterans Frank Fantini and Todd Eilers have joined in a strategic alliance to provide the best, most current market information to investors and corporate executives.

Eilers and his newly founded equity research firm Eilers Research, and long-time financial media publisher and investor Frank Fantini, CEO of Fantini Research, have crafted an agreement to create and distribute proprietary and customized gaming market research reports.

Fantini Research, the publisher of Fantini's Gaming Report and a state-by-state report of monthly gaming revenue, has collaborated with Eilers for years on the industry's premier slots distribution survey.

In addition, Fantini Research conducts custom market research and provides incorporating and registered agent services. Fantini Research also markets proprietary Spectrumetix research that is not competitive with Eilers Research.

"We are excited to begin this relationship with Todd Eilers, with whom we have partnered on the gaming industry's leading slot survey," Fantini said.

"This alliance will allow Fantini Research to expand our service to institutional investors and corporate level executives who rely upon us daily for actionable information, and it will be fun helping Todd grow his new business," he said.
