In our last issue, Leasing News stated that it was surprising no other media has been covering the sale of this company, and further, there has been no “press release” from DSI.
The entire board of directors has resigned, we are told by a highly reliable source.
It is time for a press release. Will it answer what monies they have left to
invest in IDS after spending close to $50 million, it appears, or how the cash flow
will repay the original investment, is not known. IDS competitors and their
sales staff surely wait eagerly for the news.

DVI has been the kind of financial risk-taker that partnered closely with
captives in the healthcare leasing industry, and helped their
entrepreneurial growth. Lessors have been reluctant to comment on the
potential impact on the leasing industry of DVI filing Chapter 11, though
Edward Dahlka, President, LaSalle National Leasing Corporation, said, “It’s
a shame to lose another publicly-held leasing company that analysts on Wall
Street have been following.”
“We regret the fact that DVI has had to file for Chapter 11 and our hope is
that this enables them a quick resolution for all the people involved,”
said ELA President Michael Fleming.
John Deane, a principal of The Alta Group who had managed and participated
in preparing the Equipment Leasing and Finance Foundation study, The
Perfect Storm Why Successful Lease Financing Companies Have Exited The
Marketplace, believes there are two reasons why DVI’s bankruptcy filing
affects the lease financing industry. “This is yet another publicly-owned
leasing company that is having significant difficulties, and if, in fact,
the improprieties rise to the level of dishonesty and breaking the law,
then there is an even greater negative impact on the industry.”
DVI is an independent specialty finance company for healthcare providers
worldwide with $2.8 billion of managed assets.

### Press Release ###############################################
LAS VEGAS--3--PDS Gaming Corporation (Nasdaq:PDSG), a company that finances, leases and sells gaming equipment for the casino industry and operates Rocky's Casino & Sports Bar in Reno, Nevada, today reported its operating results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2003.
For the three months ended June 30, 2003, the Company reported net income of $182,000, or $0.05 per diluted share, compared with a net loss of $(513,000), or $(0.14) per diluted share, for the three months ended June 30, 2002. The prior year quarter included a loss from discontinued operations of $(484,000), or $(0.13) per diluted share. Revenues from continuing operations were $9.8 million in the second quarter of 2003 and $8.8 million in the second quarter of 2002. Operating lease rentals increased from $3.1 million in the 2002 quarter to $6.1 million in the 2003 quarter, reflecting higher levels of operating lease originations. Fee income for the second quarter 2003 increased to $668,000 compared to $43,000 in the year-earlier quarter. The increase primarily reflects a large engagement to provide advisory services. The Company completed $42.6 million in originations during the second quarter 2003, compared with $20.4 million in the second quarter 2002. Originations in the second quarter 2003 included $23.0 million sourced through a single customer, including a $20.8 million note syndicated by the Company, of which $1.0 million was retained by the Company for its portfolio.
Revenues from equipment sales and sales-type leases decreased to $1.6 million for the second quarter of 2003, compared to $4.1 million for the year-earlier quarter, due primarily to lower sales of equipment coming off lease and lower revenues from sales-type leases. Interest expense increased by $613,000 to $2.4 million for the second quarter of 2003, compared to $1.8 million for the year-earlier period, as a result of higher debt levels which financed growth in the portfolio and a higher weighted average cost of funds in the second quarter of 2003.
Casino operations resulted in a pre-tax loss, before depreciation, of $105,000 in the second quarter 2003, compared to a pre-tax loss of $197,000 in the second quarter 2002. The reduced loss reflects efforts to reduce costs in light of the continued weakness of the Reno, Nevada gaming market as well as strong competition from Native American casinos operating in Northern California.
For the six month period ended June 30, 2003, the Company reported net income of $443,000, or $0.12 per diluted share, compared with a net loss of $2.4 million, or $(0.63) per diluted share, for the six months ended June 30, 2002. The prior year period included a loss from discontinued operations of $1.9 million, or $(0.50) per diluted share. Revenues from continuing operations were $19.3 million in the first six months of 2003 compared with $18.2 million in the same period last year. The higher level of revenues in 2003 is primarily the result of significantly higher operating lease rental revenue in the current year, partially offset by lower revenues from equipment sales and sales-type leases. The Company completed $74.1 million in originations in the first six months of 2003, compared with $29.9 million in the same period of 2002.
Interest expense increased by $951,000 to $4.6 million for the six months ended June 30, 2003, compared to $3.7 million for the year-earlier period, as a result of higher debt levels and a higher weighted average cost of funds in the first six months of 2003.
Casino operations resulted in a pre-tax loss, before depreciation, of $253,000 in the six months ended June 30, 2003, compared to a pre-tax loss of $564,000 in the first six months of 2003. Casino costs in the year-earlier period included one-time pre-opening expenses of $238,000.
PDS Gaming Corporation provides customized finance and leasing solutions to the casino industry in the United States. The Company also operates Rocky's Casino & Sports Bar in Reno, Nevada. PDS Gaming Corporation is headquartered in Las Vegas, Nevada, and its common stock trades on The Nasdaq Stock Market under the symbol "PDSG".

### Press Release ###############################################
1099- The armies of the First Crusade defeated the Saracens at the Battle of Ascalon (an historic Palestinian city on the Mediterranean), one month after they had captured Jerusalem. As they did in the Holy City, they killed all “non-believers,” including men, women, and children. And you wonder why Caucasians are
not liked in the middle east.
1791-African-American Benjamin Banneker published his first Almanac.
1812- Lucy Brewer, alias George Baker and Louisa Baker, concealed her sex and served on board the Constitution as a US Marine in its battle with the Guerriere. She thus became the first woman to serve as a US Marine. This also was considered by historians to be the most important Naval action of the war that took place in the Atlantic Ocean about 750 miles east of Boston. The American loss was 14 killed or wounded; the British, 79 killed or wounded and Congress awarded $50,000 to
Captain Isaac Hull and his crew for the victory over the Guerriere.
1814-The British land in Maryland to invade Washington, DC. http://memory.loc.gov/ammem/today/aug19.html
1814- Mary Ellen "Mammy" Pleasant birthday - Afro-American activist. She is often called the mother of black civil rights in California. Much of her life is clouded in legend which says that she freed slaves who were being held illegally in free California. She worked to win the rights at African Americans to have their testimony accepted in court (1863) and helped to end discrimination on California streetcars with Pleasant v North Beach and Mission Railroad Company (January 1868). Her civil rights actions are part of the black folklore of California in which some claim she worked as a stop on the underground railway before moving to California while others say she helped financed John Brown's raid on Harper's Ferry.
1871-Birthday of Orville Wright, aviation pioneer, born at Dayton, OH, and died there
January 30, 1948. There has been controversy as to who launched the first air plane flight in the United States, but he certainly is the one he made flying famous.
1871- Florine Stettheimer birthday - U.S. artist. After failing to sell a single painting in her first showing, she never offered for sale a single painting in her lifetime although in her maturity, her work was sought after. At her death, her sister Ettie mounted a memorial show at the Museum of Modern Art that received rave reviews and Columbia University established a room for her work. Her refusal to sell was backed by a substantial fortune which she shared with her two sisters. At an early age, the three sisters decided they would never marry (forming what has been called a "cult of virginity" and do creative things. One sister became a novelist under the name "Henrie Waste." The sisters were described by contemporaries as having "exquisite taste." They opened the memorable Stettheimer gallery which drew many of the top artists of the day. The sisters themselves were works of art as they dressed in old-fashioned Bohemian styles.
1873- Mt Whitney, the second highest peak in the US, was conquered for the first time by a trio of American climbers, Charles D. Begole, A.H. Johnson and John Lucas. http://www.tsha.utexas.edu/handbook/online/articles/view/DD/fduqk.html
1886 -The Christian Union was founded by Baptist clergyman Richard G. Spurling (1858-1935) in Monroe County, Tennessee. In 1923, this Pentecostal denomination changed its name to the Church of God. Headquartered today in Cleveland, Tennessee, its current membership is nearly 500,000.
1893- Frank J. Wisner, owner of Cripple Creek Brewing, served the first “Black Cow” root beer float in Cripple Creek, CO. Inspired by the moon-lit view of the snow-capped Cow Mountain which reminded him of vanilla ice cream floating on top of the pitch-black mountain, he added a scoop of ice cream to his Myers Avenue Red root beer and began serving it as the “Black Cow Mountain Ice Cream Root Beer Float.” Kids loved it and shortened the name to “Black Cow.” Cripple Creek Brewing, now located in Warrenville, IL, celebrating its 107th anniversary, sells beverages based on the original formulas, including Myers Avenue Red root beer.lbartl64lS@aol.com.

1896---In the Klondike region of the Yukon, at Bonanza Creek (formerly known as Rabbit Creek), George Washington Carmack discovered gold August 16 or 17 ( it is considered the 16 as an anniversary date in Canada ).

was a regular performer on the CBC from 1948 until his retirement in 1964.

1934- Roberto Walker Clemente, Baseball Hall of Fame outfielder born at Carolina, Puerto Rico.

1958-The production of the elegant Packard line came to a halt on this day. Studebaker-Packard attributed the decision to lagging luxury car sales, but many Packard fans were disgruntled by the decision, which came shortly after Packard’s acquisition of Studebaker. Many wondered why Packard, with its reputation for high-quality cars and knowledgeable management, would buy the debt-ridden Studebaker Company. Studebaker management assumed the company reins after the merger, not Packard. It was common to call the new car a “stupid-baker.”
