GiG CEO Richard Brown on Germany, Netherlands and US expansion

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter “The team completed some really important product milestones over the past year, and we have reduced the cost base significantly,” he says. “We have clients [ready to go] live, and longer-term we have a really good product that will fit an array of client types and markets, and we will do so in a pragmatic and controlled manner, to build the business slowly but surely.  Its sportsbook strategy, meanwhile, has undergone something of a “reset”, Brown continues, supported by a strategic partnership with Genius Sports Group in September 2020.  Email Address “We have a lot of exciting opportunities and the guys have worked very hard to push us forward month-on-month.” Topics: Casino & games Finance Marketing & affiliates Sports betting Strategy Land-based casino Online casino Product & technology Q1 results 2021 Affiliates Marketing Online sports betting Product & technology Retail sports betting Management “We see really strong growth mechanics within the media business,” he explains. “The work put in by the team in 2019 and 2020 has pushed a lot of new market entries, and the results have started to come in. Key to Gaming Innovation Group’s (GiG) €18.3m (£15.8m/$21.9m) first quarter revenue was a record performance from its media services arm. The division’s €10.0m revenue for the three months to 31 March was the result of two years’ work by the team to facilitate moves into new markets, and refine its offering, according to chief executive Richard Brown.  Companies: GiG After reporting a 64.0% increase in Q1 revenue, Gaming Innovation Group (GiG) chief executive Richard Brown discusses the business’ European growth strategy, and its casino-led expansion plans for the US. Management Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter However, with industry enthusiasm for German regulation tempered by criticism of restrictive operating conditions and high tax rates, Brown admits it has been a “difficult” situation.  “We have a positive outlook regarding the efforts that have been put in [to date] and we’re continuing to build for the future with new markets, new website launches. We’re confident we have a good strategy.” GiG CEO Richard Brown on Germany, Netherlands and US expansion Tags: Gaming Innovation Group This, he believes, will result in year-on-year growth continuing throughout 2021. “We have a very exciting onboarding platform; we have three brands live, two in development complete phase, then a pipeline of approximately ten brands that will go live.  “When we look at the official figures coming out, it’s going to be a very strong market, though with a very high tax range. But the player values, and the size of the market, will be very attractive for operators.”center_img Further growth could come from less mature markets across Eastern Europe such as Romania, where GiG launched in Q1, and Croatia. Much of this will be driven by partnerships with land-based brands moving online, such as Casino Win in Hungary; North Macedonia’s K.A.K. DOO Skopje, and Irish operator Slotbox.“A lot of it comes down to demand for that product,” Brown explains. “We have an omni-channel solution that provides a lot of value to the customers.  “It’s a good fit for us and we see obvious financial value, in terms of how we can sustainably build the business.” This is driven predominantly by online casino, something that Brown believes sets GiG up for expansion in the US. While it made some inroads to the sports betting market, he sees igaming as the core focus for the time being. The US opportunity, he explains, should be split between sports betting and casino. “We have a strong track record in the casino space; we’ve been live in New Jersey for a couple of years, powering a brand that took market share in a mature state, that grew faster than anyone else in 2020. However, he adds, that downward trend had “bottomed out”, allowing clients to grow going forward. Furthermore, Brown points out that a number of recent contracts were only possibly as a result of the changing regulatory situation.  This, he adds, may be complemented by further M&A activity. At a time when affiliate deals are once again accelerating, most notably with Better Collective’s $240m Action Network acquisition, Brown notes that the business carried out a “tremendous” round of acquisitions around 2016. The following years were spent building these into a cohesive unit.  5th May 2021 | By Robin Harrison “It’s a really strong supplementary product to our existing client base, and it’s an important part of the business, and one we will support for the long-term, but we need to make sure we do it in a controlled and pragmatic approach to get to the ultimate goal.” “Based on what we can do with casino, we are now looking towards more states launching online casino, and not only the sports betting roll-out,” he says. “I think that can be a highly rewarding focal point for GiG, if we focus on the casino development.” “We see a lot of work being done throughout the company. The media business continues to grow, and we are very excited about a lot of the new markets we’ve entered, and the paid segment continues to do well.  “We have experience there and have been transparent about the numbers we were generating for Germany,” he explains. In Q1, Software-as-a-Service revenue from the market declined by €600,000. “We continue to look at the M&A landscape, and will continue to look for opportunities,” he continues. “We will continue to remain disciplined, and evaluate whether the move is right for us.” “Tipwin has around a thousand betting shops [throughout Germany] and bringing that online casino segment live wouldn’t have occurred without regulation,” he says. “I think it’s still a huge market, though the tax rates are somewhat prohibitive for operators. “They will continue to work to improve that to make it an attractive market, and hopefully take preventative measures to stop the rise of the black market.” Regions: Europe US Central and Eastern Europe Western Europe Germany Netherlands New Jersey Richard Brown, GiG Looking beyond Germany, Brown describes the Netherlands as “a market that is underestimated”.  The platform business, meanwhile, continues to expand, with Q1 revenue rising 88.4% to €8.1m, or 36.8% to €5.2m on a normalised basis. This has been aided by new deals in Germany, to power an online casino for betting shop operator Tipwin, signed in September 2020, followed by a similar agreement with an as-yet unnamed operator in February this year. last_img read more

These 5 Warren Buffett tips can make you rich from today’s stock market crash Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you.

Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” A stock market crash like this one is a great opportunity to buy bargain FTSE 100 stocks and build wealth for your future, provided you stay calm. So do not panic, do not sell. Instead, listen to the greatest investor of all time, Warren Buffett.He has faced a host of market crashes since the 1960s, and emerged richer every time. He did this by picking up top companies at bargain prices. You now have the opportunity to do likewise, as the FTSE 100 crashes due to the coronavirus.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…These five Buffett quotes could help you profit from the stock market crash and build the wealth you need to retire early.Interruptions“There will be interruptions, and I don’t know when they will occur, and I don’t how deep they will occur, I do know they will occur from time to time, and I also know that we’ll come out better on the other end.”This isn’t his snappiest quote, but it makes sense. We are in one of those “interruptions” now. Nobody knows how deep the stock market crash will be. However, it will pass, and we will come out better at the other end. Stay optimistic and continue to believe in the long-term wealth-building ability of the stock market.Opportunities“Opportunities come infrequently. When it rains gold, put out the bucket, not the thimble.”The last big opportunity was more than a decade ago, during the financial crisis in 2008. If you put out the bucket then, it would be overflowing today. Today’s stock market crash is another of those infrequent opportunities.Long term“We’re buying businesses to own for 20 or 30 years. We think the 20- and 30-year outlook is not changed by the coronavirus.”That should be your outlook too. Only buy shares you would like to hold for decades. In other words, top companies, with competitive advantages, strong balance sheets, and no major debt worries. Today they are cheap. In 20 or 30 years, they could be worth a lot more.Cash?“Today people who hold cash equivalents feel comfortable. They shouldn’t. They have opted for a terrible long-term asset, one that pays virtually nothing and is certain to depreciate in value.”Cash looks nice and safe as stock markets crash, but over the longer run it is truly “terrible”. Its real value will fall due to inflation, especially given today’s near-zero interest rates.Patience“The stock market is designed to transfer money from the active to the patient.”Do not race about, buying and selling shares, in today’s overheated market. You will make bad decisions and squander money on trading charges. Choose your targets carefully, with the aim of holding them for the long term.That is what Warren Buffett has done, and it turned out well for him.center_img Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.

Andrew Sheridan extends his contract with Sale Sharks

first_img“This is a massive statement of intent by the club and Andrew. Steve Diamond signed Sherri back in 2003 and once Andrew knew about Steve’s return, he was delighted to put pen to paper. Inevitably there was a lot of interest in his signature and I do know that he has turned down some big offers from a number of other clubs. He is one of the best prop forwards in the world and we are thrilled he has made this commitment to stay with us.” LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Sale Sharks, England and British Lions International Andrew Sheridan has ended speculation about his future by extending his existing contract to stay at Sale Sharks for a further season.Andrew joined Sale Sharks from Bristol Shoguns in 2003 and has played 100 games for the club. He made the first of his 36 England appearances v Canada in 2004. He played in the 2007 Rugby World Cup Final and also toured with the British Lions in 2005 and 2009. He is renowned for his destructive scrummaging displays and powerful ball carrying in the loose.CEO Mick Hogan said, Steve Diamond speaking from New Zealand said, “ I am very pleased Andrew has re-signed for the club. I remember watching him develop as a player and knew he was going to be one of the best as his career progressed. I have followed his progress with interest and am looking to build a team around Sherri and Mark Cueto who has also been a loyal servant to the club down the years.” TAGS: Sale Sharks last_img read more

Hurricane Michael recovery will require long, expensive, ‘sustained effort’

Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter The Anatomy of Fear The Florida Division of Emergency Management (FDEM) has awarded a $1.1 million grant to cover salaries and other emergency costs accrued by fire and police departments in Mexico Beach, the Bay County town hammered into near-oblivion by Category 5 Michael last October.The grant is the initial distribution from a $25 million FDEM fund included in a $220.9 million hurricane relief package approved by lawmakers during the 2019 legislative session.In announcing the grant, Gov. Ron DeSantis called the money a “lifeline” for Mexico Beach, a town of about 1,100 people with an annual $3.5 million budget.“After the devastating impact Hurricane Michael had on this city, and especially it’s budget, it is vital we do whatever we can to help,” DeSantis said during a news conference at Mexico Beach City Hall. “By providing funding to support the Mexico Beach Fire Department and law enforcement officers, we are helping the city make sure its residents are safe, while also ensuring our hard-working first responders can support their families.”“The strain on local budgets we saw after Hurricane Michael, especially in fiscally constrained areas like Mexico Beach, was something our state had never experienced before, which is why today’s announcement is absolutely critical for their recovery,” FDEM Director Jared Moskowitz said. “Providing the necessary funding to Mexico Beach helps them immensely as they begin their fiscal year.”Moskowitz thanked the Legislature, noting the state has “so far totaled more than $250 million” in emergency assistance grants to the Panhandle since January.That doesn’t include the $1.26 billion Florida has spent responding to the storm, primarily for debris collection, in anticipation of federal reimbursements that are trickling in piecemeal.Hurricane Michael, the most powerful storm to make landfall in Florida since 1992’s Hurricane Andrew, scoured a 90-mile long, 60-mile wide swath of devastation across the Panhandle when it came ashore with a 14-foot storm surge on Mexico Beach.The storm killed 26 people, left 1.1 million businesses/homes without electricity, damaged or destroyed more than 144,000 homes and wrecked 2.8 million acres of agricultural and forest land in North Florida, causing nearly $1.48 billion in agricultural damage, including $1.3 billion in destroyed timber.As of Friday, 148,347 insurance claims totaling $6.9 billion in damage had been filed with the state’s Office of Insurance Regulation (OIR). Nearly 14 percent of those claims remain open.Economists estimate that by the time the storm’s ultimate cost is tallied, including diminished incomes, production, and uninsured losses, Micheal’s price tag will exceed $12 billion.Through July, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) had contributed $1.3 billion in Hurricane Michael disaster aid, including $146 million in individual assistance, $217 million in National Flood Insurance Program claims, $642 million in Small Business Administration disaster loans and $225.7 million in public assistance grants to local governments to cover debris removal, infrastructure repair and emergency protective measures, according to the agency.Other federal agencies have paid $117 million in response and recovery, including 27,000 household repair grants and 7,800 “blue roofs” – the tarps used for temporary roof repair; temporary housing for 971 households; lodging for another 2,000 households in hotels; and rent for 21,000 people.In June, Congress approved a long-delayed $19.1 billion disaster aid bill with billions eventually bound for Florida. The 70-page bill includes $1.67 billion to repair Tyndall Air Force Base, $2.4 billion in Community Development Block Grants disaster relief funding, $1.65 billion to rebuild damaged highways, $600 in economic assistance programs, $480 million for timber restoration and $150 million for fishery losses that Panhandle residents, businesses and governments can tap into.U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, Florida’s senior Republican senator, said he was backing the “Hurricanes Florence and Michael and California Wildfire Tax Relief Act,” which would allow taxpayers to use earned income from the preceding year when claiming the Earned Income Tax Credit and Child Tax Credit.The bill would also allow more taxpayers to claim a deduction for personal casualty losses by removing the requirement to itemize and encourage employers in hard-hit areas to retain employees.“Providing tax relief so Floridians can use their money to recover would further help those who are still rebuilding their lives and communities,” Rubio said in a statement.center_img Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate Please enter your comment!

Arab League urged to press for release of prisoners of conscience

Independent investigations must be conducted into their claims that they have been tortured while in detention. We call for their immediate release and the withdrawal of the charges against them.”Humaidan was arrested on 29 December 2012 on a charge of participating in an attack on a police station in Sitra on 8 April 2012, when in fact he was at the scene to cover police abuses.His trial has made little progress since it began on 12 February, with the prosecution repeatedly postponing hearings because of its failure to produce witnesses. When the main prosecution witness was finally cross-examined on 10 June, his testimony contradicted his earlier statements. Humaidan’s lawyer argues that the inconsistencies in his testimony are sufficient to invalidate his client’s arrest and the prosecution’s case against him.At the same time, his lawyer has repeatedly requested an independent investigation into his client’s torture allegations and has in vain asked the prison authorities to let a doctor examine him.Blogger Mohamed Hassan and photographer Hussain Hubail have been held since 31 July. They were charged on 21 August with “managing (electronic) accounts calling for the government’s overthrow,” promoting and inciting hatred against the government, inciting others to disobey the law, and calling for illegal demonstrations.Hassan and Hubail, who are still awaiting trial, are also charged with “contributing to the Twitter account of the 14 February media network (@Feb14Media).”Their lawyer, Abdul Aziz Mousa, was arrested on 7 August on a charge of “publishing the names of defendants without permission” and divulging confidential information about an investigation. After being released on bail on 21 August, he is due to go on trial tomorrow.Freelance cameraman Qassim Zain Aldeen has been held at Dry Dock detention centre ever since police arrested him at his home on 13 August, on the eve of the “Tamarod” demonstrations. No charges have been brought against him.Finally, Hasan Ma’atooq, a nurse who was arrested on 24 March 2011 for posting photos of injured demonstrators online, is still serving a three-year jail sentence. The Bahrain Centre for Human Rights told Reporters Without Borders that, as he has served more than half of his sentence, he could now request early release.

Two Congolese reporters arrested at presidential palace, held by intelligence agency

They were then taken to the headquarters of the National Intelligence Agency (ANR), where they are still being held.“We are absolutely appalled by these arrests and the use of such disgraceful methods,” said Arnaud Froger, the head of RSF’s Africa desk. “How is it that journalists, who just filmed what was happening, were arrested and taken to an intelligence agency whose normal duties are supposed to consist of investigating armed groups and threats to the safety of Congolese citizens?”. Froger added: “This is a serious press freedom violation, one committed in the presidential palace, at the very heart of the government. These arrests send a terrible image. The president’s encouraging promises to promote press freedom sound very hollow after this. We ask him to intercede to obtain the release of these journalists, who did absolutely nothing wrong, and to restore their full status and presidential accreditation.”In its latest annual report on the state of press freedom in the DRC, published on 2 November, JED voices concern about the return of “predators” – people who use their power and authority to persecute journalists and media outlets that annoy them. JED says that it has registered 116 press freedom violation in 2020, including 40 arrests, and that the ANR is responsible for 70% of the violations.In a meeting with President Tshisekedi in Paris a year ago, a joint RSF-JED delegation urged him to decree a moratorium on arrests of journalists, to amend the repressive and obsolete media law, which dates back to the Mobutu dictatorship, and to create a national mechanism dedicated to protecting and securing journalists.The DRC is ranked 150th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2020 World Press Freedom Index.

Tompkins remains youngest county in graying NYS

first_imgOnly five of New York’s 62 counties have a lower median age in 2018 than they did in 2010 – Albany, Broome, Erie, Montgomery and Rockland counties. More than 80% of counties across the country report higher median ages in 2018 than they did in 2010, as the birth rate continues to decline and those already walking on this Earth are hanging around longer than they used to (though life expectancy has started to decline in the past couple years thanks to “diseases of despair,” like the opioid epidemic and a significant rise in the suicide rate). According to analyses from the U.S. Census Bureau and first noted by the Albany Times-Union, Tompkins County’s median age of 31.5 years old is the youngest median in New York State, well below the state median of 39 years old, and the U.S. national median of 38.2 years. A quick refresher: median age means 50% of people are younger than that age, and 50% are older than that age. Tompkins has a comfortable lead over the next youngest county in the state, Jefferson County up in the North Country – the presence of thousands of young soldiers at Fort Drum brings their median age down to about 32.7 years old, followed by the Bronx at 34.4 years old. The oldest county by median age in New York State is Hamilton County in the Adirondacks, with a median age of 56 years old, though one should note it also has the fewest people in the state, with fewer residents than the Town of Newfield and not a single traffic light in the county. These trends show up in national statistics as well. The birth rate is the lowest it’s been since detailed records began in 1940, and the Baby Boomers, until recently the largest generation in population, aren’t getting any younger. As a result, the average median age nationwide has grown from 37.1 years old, to 38.2 years old. ITHACA, N.Y. — Young people get blamed for a lot of things, merited or not. File this one under the former. As the state and national median age tick upward, Tompkins, with its ever-replenishing supply of college students, is still the youngest county in the state. While still young overall, Tompkins qualifies as a “rapidly aging” county. In 2010, the median age for a county resident was only 29.6 years old. There are more college students in Tompkins County in 2018 than there were in 2010, according to enrollment factbooks from Ithaca College, Cornell and Tompkins Cortland Community College, the large majority of which are college-aged (18-22).
