"We like to think of Sturgis () as our laboratory for Monkey Rock research and development," stated Monkey Rock CEO John Dent. "Over the last two years, we have launched and polished our model for adult-themed entertainment at this event, and both the response and evolution has been extraordinary. As new participants in 2009, we achieved gross margins of 25%. In 2010, the Company achieved gross margins of 77%, more than tripling our margins from the prior year. We feel strongly that we have built and refined a brand positioned to succeed on a much broader scale. We intend to grow our business through the acquisition or creation of destination properties at motorcycle enthusiast hotspots across the country, and complement those brick-and-mortar assets with dynamic social media products. During the week of December 6, 2010, we plan on issuing an open letter to shareholders describing in detail our model and anticipated rollout timeline."
