It’s Toyota’s biggest recall in six years and its second-biggest ever for a single defect. whatsapp Tags: NULL Toyota recalls 1.7m vehicles worldwide whatsapp Wednesday 26 January 2011 7:10 pm Show Comments ▼last_img read more

The e-zine looks into the challenges and potential in one of Europe’s most controversial markets.Regulatory restrictions have limited the involvement of online gambling operators from outside of the country. This report will delve into why strict regimes fail to encourage true competition, effective channelisation of players to locally regulated offerings and ask what lessons the industry can learn.There are certainly valid concerns about consumer protection that can be addressed by a higher rate of channelisation to regulated offerings. It is, moreover, a well-trodden route for regulators across Europe and hopes that the Portuguese authorities will eventually see it in the same light are shared by the whole igaming industry.Those operators and suppliers which have taken the brave decision to enter early and establish themselves will be hoping that an improved economic backdrop to the time of the liberalisation, as well as awareness of the experience in neighbouring Spain, will spur authorities to overhaul or revise the tax regime, acting as a catalyst for the regulated market.E-zine contentsIntroduction: Playing the long game Part 1: The regulatory backdrop Part 2: Portugal by numbers Part 3: Channelisation and the offshore market Part 4: The futureThe e-zine can also be downloaded as a PDF from the reader below.Related content: Sweden e-zine Denmark e-zine Tags: Card Rooms and Poker Online Gambling Portugal e-zine Email Addresslast_img read more

Swedish restrictions slow LeoVegas growth in Q3

first_img“With a positive start to the fourth quarter, a record-large customer base and many exciting initiatives, I am looking forward to a strong end to the full year,” he said. In contrast, returning depositing customers continued to climb on both year-on-year and quarter-on-quarter, reaching a record 259,696 in Q3. This was 28.2% more than last year and 8.6% up on Q2. Swedish restrictions slow LeoVegas growth in Q3 Tags: Financial LeoVegas iGaming operator LeoVegas said growth was slowed by Sweden’s online casino restrictions in the third quarter, and warned the temporary controls had created space for unlicensed operators to grow in the market. The operator said its sportsbook rebounded from a difficult Q2 in which the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic saw sporting events cancelled or suspended. LeoVegas president and chief executive Gustaf Hagman warned that with licensed operators subject to an SEK5,000 monthly deposit limit, this was creating room for offshore competitors to take market share. “At the same time, we estimate that yearly net savings from these measures will amount to roughly €1.5m starting with next year. Our efficiency improvement work equips us for continued profitable growth and makes us – combined with greater diversification of the revenue base – more resilient to rapid fluctuations in individual markets.” Total revenue in the three months through to 30 September reached €88.9m (£80.2m/$104.4m), up 0.8% from the third quarter of last year. Q3 results 2020 However, LeoVegas noted new regulations in Germany have had a slightly negative impact on revenue. It has moved quickly to adjust its offering to comply with the terms of the online casino transition period, Hagman noted. “During the quarter, among other measures we realised synergies from previous acquisitions and instituted a clearer organisational and group structure. This has led to a slight level of staff redundancy, and operating profit was charged with €500,000 for measures coupled to this. “In Sweden we are seeing a troubling development in which the unlicensed market continues to grow unhindered,” he explained. “A growing number of operators without licences are actively targeting Swedish players, including those who have been barred by the self-exclusion tool Spelpaus.” After accounting for €422,000 in finance costs, profit before tax was €4.7m, a fall of 14.6% on last year. Once €607,000 in income tax, and foreign exchange adjustments were factored in, net profit for Q3 was €4.1m, down 19.6% year-on-year. Looking at the operator’s year-to-date performance, revenue for the nine months to the end of September reached €289.1m, up by 7.5% on €269.0m at the same point in 2019. Topics: Casino & games Finance Sports betting Live dealer Online casino Q3 results 2020 Online sports betting LeoVegas said NGR in the Nordics was down 20.0% year-on-year, primarily due to temporary Covid-19 restrictions in Sweden, including new deposit limits. In comparison, rest of Europe NGR climbed 13%, while rest of world NGR was also up 21% on Q3 last year. Earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA) amounted to €11.9m, down 6.3%. Depreciation and amortisation costs came to €2.7m, while amortisation and impairment of acquired intangible assets (including goodwill) expenses reached €4.1m, leaving an operating profit of €5.2m, down 15.0%. Revenue from locally regulated markets accounted for 44% of total revenue in Q3, down from 50% in Q3 last year, with the operator blaming this on the performance of its Swedish division, which was impacted by Covid-19 measures. Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Regions: Nordics Sweden “During the quarter we maintained a high pace of innovation and investment, which is strengthening our long-term position and growth prospects,” Hagman said. Gross profit was 8.5% higher at €195.4m, while EBITDA also increased by 25.4% to €43.9m. Operating profit was up 55.3% to €23.6m, and after accounting for finance costs, profit before tax was €23.0m, some 70.4% more than at the same point last year. The operator also provided a short update on its performance in Q4, saying preliminary revenue for the month of October amounted to €33.0m, up 26.9% on last year. Other operating costs were down by 14.9% to €7.4m, while capital development costs climbed 33.3% to €2.4m. However, marketing expenses, the operator’s main outgoing in Q3, increased 14.8% year-on-year to €31.8m, though this was slightly lower than planned due to the timing of new campaigns and launches of new brands. Looking at geographical performance, Europe outside of the Nordic region was the main driver of revenue in Q3, accounting for 47% of total revenue. The Nordic region – in which LeoVegas launched Royal Panda in Finland – brought in 35%, and other markets 18%. LeoVegas’ core casino product accounted for 77% of total revenue in the period, ahead of live casino on 16% and sports betting with 7%. LeoVegas paid a total of €1.7m in income tax in the nine-month period, and after also accounting for the impact of exchange difference on translations of foreign operators, this left a total comprehensive profit of €21.2m, up 69.6% on 2019. AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Personnel costs edged up 9.7% to €12.4m, though LeoVegas at the end of Q3 put in place an efficiency improvement programme, which will see a number of staff being made redundant as it seeks to cut costs. LeoVegas was helped in Q3 by a 23.6% year-on-year increase in new depositing customers (NDCs) to 178,995, though this was lower than both the first and second quarters. In terms of spending in Q3, cost of sales were down 10.3% to €15.7m, though gaming duties remained level at €12.4m for the quarter, leaving a gross profit of €60.9m, up from €58.4m last year. 5th November 2020 | By Robert Fletcher Email Addresslast_img read more

I’d follow Warren Buffett to find the best UK shares to buy now Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! Identifying the best UK shares to buy now is clearly a very subjective task. Some investors may feel defensive companies are the most attractive option, given the uncertain outlook for the economy. By contrast, other investors could decide to focus on growth stocks in a fast-changing world economy.Warren Buffett has a long track record of identifying sound companies and purchasing them at opportune moments. Following the billionaire investor’s lead could produce higher returns in the long run that increase an investor’s chances of making a million.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…Finding the best UK shares by listening to Warren BuffettFortunately for investors seeking the best UK shares to buy now, Buffett has always been open about what he looks for when investing money in stocks. For example, he aims to buy companies with a dominant market position. That means they can be leveraged to produce higher profitability over the long run.For example, a business may be a dominant brand within its industry. This may lead to a more loyal customer base that’s less likely to trade down to cheaper alternatives during present economic challenges. It may also allow the company in question to more easily generate higher margins. And also expand into new product areas over the coming years.Industries with established growth opportunitiesThe best UK shares to buy now could be those companies that are well-established in industries that have long histories of strong growth. For Buffett, investing in technology companies has never been a central focus. This has meant missing out on several growth opportunities. But it has also allowed him to avoid potential pitfalls in sectors that fail to deliver on their potential.Although many tech stocks may be popular at the present time, their valuations could be void of margins of safety in many instances. Buffett has also always sought to purchase high-quality businesses at low prices to maximise capital returns and limit risks. So a similar strategy could prove useful in today’s stock market. Therefore, the best shares to buy now could be those companies that face uncertain near-term outlooks within industries that have solid track records of growth.Making a million from UK stocksThe recent stock market rally may mean investors are less interested in finding the best UK shares to buy now. For example, they may simply seek to purchase a basket of stocks, rather than follow Buffett’s lead in terms of being selective about their holdings.This strategy could produce a £1m portfolio in the long run. For example, a £100,000 investment today could be worth in excess of £1m by equalling the stock market’s historic 8% annual total returns over a 30-year time period.However, through finding the best UK shares to buy now, an investor could follow in Buffett’s footsteps and outperform the stock market. This may reduce the amount of time it takes to make a million through increasing potential rewards and reducing overall risks. 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.

Joe Saxton on benefits to charities of the Internet

Joe explains why the Internet is significant to charities. “The real benefit to charities is that many of these technologies allow them to compete on a more level playing field than before.”Joe Saxton, director of communications at the Royal National Institute for Deaf People, writes about the Internet in the 22 July issue of ThirdSector. “My life has changed dramatically over the last year. I have become a 50 e-mails a day man,” he says. Joe explains why the Internet is significant to charities. “The real benefit to charities is that many of these technologies allow them to compete on a more level playing field than before.”However, Saxton points out that the biggest hindrance to charities’ effective use of the Internet is the lack of technological staff. “The biggest problem for many charities is not spotting the technological opportunities but being able to attract and retain the staff to bring them to reality.” This is largely true, but it could be argued that it is not the technological skills that are lacking but the very ability to spot the technological opportunities. Using the Internet to fundraise, for example, requires little technical skill: instead it requires fundraising expertise and personal experience of using the Internet. Charities would do well to ensure they provide such access and experience to their staff. Advertisement About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Hernandez followed his lead-off homer with a solo shot in the third inning, eventually driving in four runs.Some-timer Charlie Culberson also had a productive night, bring in three runs with a two-run single in the fourth and adding another RBI single in the sixth.The win was Clayton Kershaw’s second, against no losses, allowing three runs on five hits in seven hits. He also threw two wild pitches which allowed two of the Giant runs.The third consecutive win puts the Dodgers (7-4)  in first place in the NL West. They are also now 3-2 against the Giants this season.The two teams will battle again tomorrow evening and Sunday afternoon.Here’s how we blogged it.                         — Your email address will not be published.
