Email Address Topics: Legal & compliance Sports betting Tech & innovation BHA talks up racing’s future amid FOBT changes 18th May 2018 | By contenteditor Legal & compliance The British Horseracing Association (BHA) has said the sport looks set to play a more vital role for gambling operators after the government cut the maximum stake on fixed-odd betting terminals (FOBTs) AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Tags: OTB and Betting Shops The British Horseracing Association (BHA) has said the sport looks set to play a more vital role for gambling operators after the government cut the maximum stake on fixed-odd betting terminals (FOBTs).Yesterday (Thursday), the government confirmed that the top stake on FOBTs will be lowered to £2 (€2.29/$2.70), with Remote Gaming Duty raised to fill the resulting hole in the pubic finances. Campaign groups have long been pushing for changes in regulation for FOBTs, which currently allow punters to bet up to £100 per spin, and the government had been expected to take major action. Operators had warned of the impact that the move could have on the gambling industry in the UK, claiming that a cut in the top stake could lead to widespread joblosses and a decline in tax income for the government. However, the BHA has backed the move, saying the changes in FOBT regulations could lead to a brighter future for racing, talking up the sport’s future role in the gambling market. BHA chief executive Nick Rust said: “British racing has a strong social conscience and we support measures announced by the government today to reduce the harm caused by problem gambling. “We are also an industry that generates significant employment, provides education and training and funds charitable work, particularly in rural areas. “Throughout this consultation process, we have aimed to protect these valuable social contributions from any potential adverse impacts from wider policy changes. “We are pleased that government has acknowledged the reasonable arguments we have made in the consultation process that jobs and revenues in the racing industry should not be adversely affected by changes to wider gambling policy.” Rust added: “British racing shares a unique interdependency with the betting industry and we recognise that this decision will affect jobs in the betting industry, with which we work closely in partnership. “We want betting on horseracing – on the High Street, at racecourses and online – to continue to be accepted as legitimate and socially responsible. “Recreational betting has been a part of racing for centuries and is an accepted entertainment pursuit during a day at the races or on the High Street.” “Our industry’s leaders – who have worked together throughout this consultation – will now work with the betting industry and government as to how we can grow such legitimate, socially responsible betting activity on racing and take measures to address problem gambling wherever we can.”Related articles: UK to cut FOBT stake to £2 and raise remote tax BHA aims to maximise revenues with new strategy Regions: UK & Ireland
Upfront payments contributed 42.8% of overall revenue in the quarter, ahead of revenue-share agreements on 40.5% and flat fees with 16.7% of total share. Q1 results 2020 Acquisitions drive Raketech to revenue and profit growth in Q1 Online affiliate and content marketing provider Raketech put a year-on-year rise in revenue and net profit during the first quarter of its financial year down to the impact of its ongoing acquisitions strategy. Looking at costs for the quarter, operating expenses were up 23.1% to €6.4m. This was mainly due to higher direct costs – up 81.3% to €2.9m – which Raketech said was driven by paid media via its new product offering following the acquisitions of Lead Republik and American Gambler. In terms of geographical performance, the Nordics remain Raketech’s core operating area, accounting for 64.9% of all revenue in Q1. Revenue from other markets made up 35.1% of the quarterly total. Raketech said this was driven by its acquisitions of igaming affiliate network Lead Republik in March last year, as well as US-facing affiliate website American Gambler in November. However, the affiliate said this was partially offset by a reduction in revenue following the disposal of the consumer finance assets to ROI Media UK in Q4 of 2020.

Casino revenue accounted for 82.5% of total revenue in the quarter, compared to 78.3% last year. Sports betting revenue represented 17.0% of the quarterly total, while other revenue was responsible for just 0.5% of all revenue in Q1. Tags: Revenue Raketech Profit Email Address “The first quarter of 2021 was a solid quarter for Raketech,” Raketech’s chief executive Oskar Mühlbach said. “Despite Q1 traditionally being a slower quarter, revenues came in in line with Q4, totalling €8.3m. This equals an annual growth rate of 27%, whereof 5% was organic.” Publication of the results comes after Raketech last month proposed appointing William Hill chief executive Ulrik Bengtsson as its new chairman, after Christian Lundberg declined re-election to the role. Operating profit amounted to €1.6m, up 14.3% year-on-year, while earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA) also increased 22.0% to €3.2m. 12th May 2021 | By Robert Fletcher “I am pleased to be able to conclude that the positive momentum we showed in Q4 continued into Q1 and resulted in yet another stable quarter,” Mühlbach said. After taking into account €307,000 in finance costs and also €61,000 from the revaluation of financial liabilities, this left a €1.2m profit before tax, up 5.3% on last year. Raketech paid €61,000 in income tax during Q1, meaning it ended the period with €1.1m in comprehensive profit, an increase of 6.6% on Q1 of 2020.

I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. I’ve recently been looking at some AIM shares to add more rapid growth to a portfolio that has, until recently, mainly been about large-caps. I’ll outline one or two shares from AIM that I think show initial promise, along with a share that has kept paying a dividend. An AIM share with great long-term potentialDiscoverIE (LSE: DSCV), formerly known as Acal, is a manufacturer of electrical components. It has a market cap at the time of writing of around £540m. It’s a share I’ve had my eye on for a long time, but I think it could well be added to my portfolio soon. The group is developing new five-year targets and wants to expand in North America and Asia.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…Financially I think it looks good and it has a return on capital employed (ROCE) of 16%. Profit margins have been rising steadily and were at 8.5% at the end of March.It intends to reinstate the dividend, which before Covid was growing at around 6% per annum, with cover between two to three times earnings.An AIM listed and undervalued tech shareIMImobile (LSE: IMO) is a little bit smaller than DiscoverIE. It has a market cap of around £340m. I think it might be undervalued for a technology company on a trailing P/E of around 24.The group is in cloud communications and personalised mobile messaging. It’s well aligned therefore with a growing trend for more and more mobile devices and data.The technology company has 46 clients that pay over £500,000 per annum for its services so it’s not a small player. It provides a service customers are willing to pay for – the basic hallmark of a good company.A positive September trading update shows that the company has the ability to grow at pace as gross profits rose 46%.As the tech group targets growth in the US, I’m looking more into the company with a view to adding the shares to my portfolio. Its best days could well be ahead of it and as such, I feel it might become a future growth star and a dividend-payer.The big FTSE 100 dividend stockLegal & General (LSE: LGEN) is very different to my first two shares. It’s more in the value and income category of shares. The share price has fallen by 40% this year. The result of that is the dividend yield is now around 9%.That would often be a warning to investors. I’m not sure in this instance it is as Legal & General has always paid out a high amount to shareholders. I think it’s more a consequence of the pandemic, rather than something to worry about.Indeed, I feel the high yield on offer is an opportunity. I think buying the shares much more cheaply now gives me a future income. Also, when we return to more normal conditions, and the economy and stock market recover, the shares could grow much quicker than the wider market. That’s because they’ve been out of favour. I already hold these shares and they’re quite a large part of my portfolio already, so I’ll probably only add a small amount.

Taking into account the city’s urban tissue, the project is the renovation of a Brussels typical terraced-house. Originally inhabited by a single family, the house appeared too big and difficult to take care of after the children grew up and left. The owner of the house then decided to sell the last two floors to a friend, in order for him to convert them into his own appartement. The architectural project consists in renovating and turning the existing single family terraced houseinto a building of two separate flats. Architects Edouard Brunet and François Martens teamed up in order to complete this relatively small yet ambitious project.Save this picture!Diagram – NowIn addition to 5 floors of approximately 45m2 each, the house has a rear facade looking towards the East, while the front facade looks towards the West. The two architects suggested to install the upper flat’s living area on the top floor of the house, as to limit nuisances between neighbours (bedrooms are placed on top of each other) but also to benefit from the light and open view that this floor offers. Because of the limited total surface area of each floor and the top floor being set up in the attic, it was decided to tear down the rear part of the roof. This allowed to build a terrace and a new cantilever space right where the former staircase lead to the top floor. The new staircase is set in the centre of the building.Save this picture!© Dennis De SmetThis setting allowed to upgrade the living area: direct access to the terrace, more daylight reaching further into the flat, new kitchen with an open view on the back gardens and yards, the sky and Brussels’ skyline. Besides providing an intimate outdoor area, the new terrace built in the existing house volume gives a new facade looking towards the South, letting daylight enter the kitchen for a large portion of the day.Save this picture!© Dennis De SmetThe new cantilever space’s style is purposely and visibly contemporary as well as uncluttered to distinguish it from the existing building: the city becomes the expression of various periods, such as a palimpsest would be. This frank intervention was made possible thanks to the existing rear facade’s lack of cultural heritage interest and its relative poor state. Building regulations were taken into account in the design of the project: direct views on neighbouring houses were avoided, distances and alignments were respected, etc.)Save this picture!© Dennis De SmetIn order to stress the sense of space, the top floor’s walls were torn down; the new mezzanine was suspended, to allow the overall attic volume to be seen. Each and every inch of the space is maximised, such as in Japanese or Dutch projects that the new owner presented as references to the architects. All necessary functions for the new flat are organised in one single piece of furniture set up throughout the floors and the rooms.Save this picture!© Dennis De SmetThe kitchen, the staircase, the toilets and the shower are put together to compose this piece of furniture, which circulate between the floors and the rooms, allowing for fluidity and thus alleviating the small surface areasinconvenience. Birchwood, a pale colour wood, was chosen to make this piece of furniture and create a warm atmosphere in the entire apartment. In comparison, the lower part of the house saw minor work which consisted in wood, iron and fitting works. To make the flats independent, a new suspended staircase was drawn and designed alongside the craftsperson who manufactured it. The bathroom was also entirely redesigned. The combination of bamboo and iron gives this part of the house a unique atmosphere.Save this picture!© Dennis De SmetThis project is the first collaboration between the two architects. It is the best example of their great attention to details as well as their constant search for clever solutions, regardless of any preconception yet within limited budgets. Their aim is to create spaces that offer light, views and noble material.Originally published on November 11, 2015Save this picture!© Dennis De SmetProject gallerySee allShow lessThe End of Sitting / RAAAFSelected ProjectsDA House / Bernardo Bustamante ArquitectosSelected Projects Share CopyAbout this officeEdouard BrunetOfficeFollowFrançois MartensOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteelBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentRenovationExtensionSchaerbeekIcebergBelgiumPublished on January 26, 2020Cite: “Terraced-House Renovation / Edouard Brunet + François Martens” 26 Jan 2020.

Among the activities, music, and food being offered, The Pasadena Human Services & Recreation Department (HSRD) was there, planting the seed for their 27th Annual Michael Bryant Haircut and Back to School event that takes place in August and where backpacks and school supplies are distributed to kids in need. “Michael Bryant was a local barber here in Pasadena”, explains Horace Wormely, Deputy Director of HSRD, “who year after year offered free haircuts to local residents returning to school, from his shop on Lincoln Avenue.”Twenty-seven years later, the tradition not only lives on, but also continues to grow. Joining the Pasadena Police Department, Pasadena Unified School District, Target, and other non-profits that support the back to school event, is Sydney Paige® Inc., a Buy One | Give One company, where for each backpack purchased, Sydney Paige® will donate an identical bag, filled with school supplies, to a child in need. “We are so excited about the additional kids in need this will allow us to reach,” says Courtney Brockmeyer, Founder & CEO of the backpack company, “as well as being able to work with passionate groups and individuals who share our goal of helping underserved children learn and thrive in school.”Maricela Galvez, Program Coordinator, who spearheaded the weekend effort for HSRD, wanted to get the word out about purchasing Sydney Paige® backpacks, so that Robinson Park Center can reach its goal of donating 300 backpacks filled with school supplies to children in need in the Northwest Pasadena communities.Both HSRD and Sydney Paige® are passionate about these children starting the school year off prepared and confident. Brockmeyer states, “The top reasons for kids dropping out of school are simply lack of confidence and the lack of tools to do their work.
