What is being said?

Commenting on the COVID pandemic and its impact on the business, Lai stated: “When we look at COVID in general and how the world has changed, one thing we’ve found is that there’s been a lot of acceleration of trends that I think we always thought were going to happen. 

“For instance, retail. I don’t know if anyone’s going to go back to the mall but everyone’s got pretty comfortable shopping online. All of these things in other industries have been accelerated by COVID. I think when you look into the gaming sector it’s no different, and actually if anything it’s been even more apparent.”
