We are delighted with the partnership we have with Zeta Retail and we look forward to further expansion in Kazakhstan over the course of the next 12 months. Kazakhstan represents the first of at least three new market launches for The Entertainer in 2018, and we look forward to finding further partners to grow The Entertainer brand globally.”
