Net Gaming suffers due to regulation and competition in Q2

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Finance iGaming affiliate business Net Gaming Europe has reported a 24% year-on-year decline in revenue over second quarter of the year, blaming tighter regulations in a number of European markets and increased competition in North America for its struggles. iGaming affiliate business Net Gaming Europe has reported a 24% year-on-year decline in revenue over second quarter of the year, blaming tighter regulations in a number of European markets for its struggles.Revenue for the three months to 30 June, 2019 fell to €3.5m (£3.2m/$3.9m), with the decline offset in part by the acquisition of the BettingGuide.se site. Excluding new acquisitions, legacy brands saw revenue decline 27% from the prior year.Chief executive Marcus Teilman blamed “political regulation effects” in Europe for the decline, having cited the launch of Sweden’s igaming market and Italy’s gambling advertising ban as key headwinds following the publication of the operator’s Q1 results. This contributed to revenue from Europe falling to 69% of the group total, down seven percentage points. Sweden, which accounted for 4% of revenue in Q2 2018, saw its contribution decline to 2% of the group total. While North America accounted for 18% of revenue – down from 19% in the prior year – Net Gaming said market openings had led to a significant increase in competition. This resulted in a 32% year-on-year fall in North American revenue. As a result the share from other regions grew to 13%, up from 5% in Q2 2018.Going forward, Teilmann said, the business would look to increase its geographic reach, partly through acquisitons, and partly through organic growth.“Continuous minimisation of the company’s risk by spreading political risk over several geographical markets is a strategy we will be pursuing going forward,” he said.To aid these efforts, the business upgraded its proprietary technology platform in Q2, while its CasinoGuide and CasinoSpielen brands were relaunched in the UK, US and Germany.The business also suffered some short-term pain due to its transition from a cost per acquisition (CPA) to revenue share-focused business. With paid media advertising being phased out, new depositing customer numbers fell 29%, something that Net Gaming said had also been affected by European regulatory changes and increased North American competition.CPA still accounted for 51% of revenue, compared to 47% from revenue share deals (up 17 percentage points).Costs for the quarter rose as a result of higher personnel expenses, which increased to €1.0m, after which earnings before, interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation was down 32% at €2.0m. Once financial items and taxes were stripped out, net profit for the quarter was down 41% to €1.2m. “I am not satisfied with our performance in Q2, but I am hopeful that that we will show improved EBITDA levels in the future,” Teilman noted.For the six months to 30 June, revenue was down 15% year-on-year at €7.6m. External expenses were cut from €1.6m to €1.3m, but Net Gaming spent more on staffing in the period, with personnel costs rising from €1.6m to €2.0m. Other operating expenses also climbed from €1,000 to €33,000, with EBITDA dropping 22% to €4.6m this year.Lower revenue and higher costs also pushed operating profit for the first half down from €5.9m to €4.2m, while net profit for the half fell to €3.2m.Despite a difficult first half, Teilman said remained positive about the future, noting Net Gaming would continue to pursue acquistions. This saw the business acquire the UK-facing MaxFreeBets.co.uk after the period end.“Ahead of us, we see attractive business opportunities in a highly fragmented market to make disciplined and reasonably valued acquisitions that meet our investment criteria,” he said. “Our starting point is that the acquisitions will be primarily financed through our relatively large existing cash resources and our strong operating cash flows.“I am convinced that using existing cash and cash flows in this way creates good value for Net Gaming’s shareholders over time, as our overall financial target is earnings per share growth.” Email Address 16th August 2019 | By contenteditorcenter_img Topics: Finance Marketing & affiliates Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Tags: Online Gambling Net Gaming suffers due to regulation and competition in Q2last_img read more

A further 298,607 receipts were then issued, for a further $125,430.This far exceeded the company’s target of raising between CAD$2m and CAD$3m.“Esports has been one of the few industries to thrive during the Covid-19 outbreak and its enormous potential has been brought into sharper focus,” Luckbox chief executive Quentin Martin (pictured), who took over from Lars Lien in February, commented.“Investors have clearly taken note and their support for us puts us in an even stronger position to accelerate our growth plans.”Money raised through the financing is to be used for general corporate and working capital purposes, and has been completed ahead of its listing on Toronto’s TSX Venture Exchange.This is being facilitated through Elephant Hill, a capital pool company with which it will merge to secure a stock market listing.“As evidenced by the oversubscribed subscription receipts offering, we continue to be enthusiastic about our proposed business combination with Luckbox,” Elephant Hill president and chief executive said of the second tranche.“The esports market continues to expand with each passing month and Luckbox is positioned to be one of the leading esports betting companies in an exciting growth industry.” Tags: Video Gaming Esports betting operator Luckbox has completed a second tranche of funding, raising a further CAD$627,650 from investors, and taking the total sum raised through its current round to $4.5m.

Special Tribunal for Lebanon finds journalist guilty of contempt

The fine must be paid by 30 October. Khayat can appeal against her conviction.——–In its 18 September verdict, the STL acquitted Al Jadeed of corporate responsibility. It also acquitted both the journalist and the station on a separate charge of endangering supposedly confidential witnesses by filming them for a series of reports broadcast from 6 to 10 August 2012. The trial began in April.The STL, which is investigating Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri’s 2005 assassination, convicted Khayat on the contempt charge for failing to comply with orders to remove the reports from the station’s website and YouTube page after they had been broadcast.Al-Jadeed’s deputy news editor and vice-president of its board, Khayat is facing a possible seven years jail sentence or fine of 100,000 euros, or both. The tribunal is scheduled to pass sentence on 28 September. Khayat plans to appeal.According to Khayat, the reports just aimed to highlight the leak of confidential information from the STL and did not expose witnesses, who were readily available to the media.“Karma Khayat should have been acquitted,” said Alexandra El Khazen, the head of the Reporters Without Borders Middle East and Maghreb desk. “The conviction is absurd because it’s not the broadcasting of reports that is being punished, it’s the failure to take down content that had already been broadcast.“Khayat was doing her job by investigating and informing the public about an issue of national importance. She did not obstruct the STL’s work. We therefore invite the STL to reverse this decision because the penalty she is facing is not proportionate to the objective pursued.”The outcome of the trial is decisive for journalism in Lebanon as it could set a precedent for restricting the right to information. When Al Jadeed received the STL’s request to stop broadcasting the reports, it referred the request to Lebanon’s National Council for Broadcasting, which said they did not violate Lebanon’s laws.No evidence was produced to support claims that the reports endangered witnesses or undermined public confidence in the STL.STL spokesman Wajed Ramadan told Reporters Without Borders that the judge determined that Khayad had been notified of the tribunal’s request by various channels and could therefore have withdrawn the reports but instead “deliberately” chose to ignore the request. The reports were posted on the TV station’s website and on YouTube and remained online at least until 2 October 2013.Reporters Without Borders submitted an amicus brief on the Khayat case to the STL when a preliminary hearing was held on 13 May 2014.Set up by the United Nations at Lebanon’s request, the STL is the first international tribunal to be created to investigate and try a specific act of terrorist violence (the Hariri assassination).Lebanon is ranked 98th out of 180 countries in the 2015 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.

Police urged to investigate journalist’s murder in Tarlac

first_img Filipina journalist still held although court dismissed case eleven days ago April 5, 2006 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Police urged to investigate journalist’s murder in Tarlac PhilippinesAsia – Pacific Philippines: RSF and the #HoldTheLine Coalition welcome reprieve for Maria Ressa, demand all other charges and cases be dropped News Mass international solidarity campaign launched in support of Maria Ressa Reporters Without Borders today called on the Philippine National Police (PNP) to thoroughly investigate the murder of newspaper columnist and municipal consultant Orlando Mendoza, who was gunned down near his home in the city of Tarlac, 100 km north of Manila, on 2 April.“Even if Mendoza handled land conflicts for the Tarlac municipal government, the authorities should not rule out the possibility that he was killed because of his work as a journalist,” the press freedom organisations said, urging the PNP to deploy investigators to establish the motives for the murder and identify those responsible.Reporters Without Borders also noted that there has been no word of journalist and environmental activist Joey Estriber since he was kidnapped on 3 March in Aurora province.Mendoza, 58, was a columnist for the Tarlac Profile and the chief editor of another local newspaper, the Tarlac Patrol. He was also secretary of the Tarlac radio and press club. Central Luzon Media Association president Abel Pablo said Mendoza also worked for the Tarlac municipal council as a consultant on land disputes.Before getting into journalism in 1998, Mendoza worked for the agrarian reform department. Pablo said a journalist had accused him of forging papers to help peasants and landowners involved in property disputes.Tarlac Patrol publisher Pacifico Guevarra told the Inquirer News Service he thought the Mendoza’s murder was more likely linked to his work on land disputes than his journalistic activities. Nonetheless, libel actions were brought against Guevarra and Mendoza last month by the Philippine Guardian Brotherhood (military fraternity) that was criticised in their articles. The courts ruled in their favour.The police never identified any suspects in the July 2003 murder in Tarlac of columnist Bonifacio Gregorio of the Diaryo Banat.

Therefore, the Courts at the changed venue/place of arbitration will be having jurisdiction over the arbitral proceedings.A bench comprising Justices Rohinton Fali Nariman and Hrishikesh Roy gave this significant ruling in the case M/s Inox Renewables Ltd v Jayesh Electricals Ltd. The bench followed the precedent in BGS SGS Soma JV vs NHPC Ltd, which held that the venue of arbitration will be the juridical seat of arbitration in the absence of contrary intention of the parties.Background FactsGujarat Fluorochemicals Ltd [“GFL”] and Jayesh Electricals Ltd had an agreement for manufacture and supply of power transformers. This agreement had an arbitration clause, which fixed the venue of arbitration at Jaipur, Rajasthan and gave courts in Rajasthan exclusive jurisdiction over disputes arising out of the agreement.Later, GFL sold its entire business to Inox Renewables Ltd. The business transfer agreement between GFL and Inox also had an arbitration clause, which fixed the venue at Vadodara, Gujarat, and gave Courts at Vadodara exclusive jurisdiction.When disputes arose between Inox and Jayesh Electricals, the latter approached the Gujarat High Court under Section 11 of the Arbitration and Conciliation Act, 1996 for the appointment of an arbitrator. The High Court appointed a retired HC judge as an arbitrator.Before the arbitrator, both the parties mutually agreed to have Ahmedabad as the venue of arbitration, despite the clause in the agreement which had fixed Jaipur as the venue. The arbitrator proceeded with the arbitration at Ahmedabad, recording the consent of both the parties to hold the proceedings there.The arbitrator passed an award in favour of Jayesh Electricals. This was challenged by Inox before a Commercial Court at Ahmedabad under Section 34 of the Act. The Ahmedabad Court dismissed the appeal holding that exclusive jurisdiction is vested with Vadodara Court as per the business transfer agreement.Inox challenged this further before the Gujarat High Court. The High Court affirmed the finding of the Ahmedabad Court that it had no jurisdiction to deal with the appeal. However, the High Court observed that it was the court at Jaipur which had jurisdiction, instead of Vadodara Court.Inox made a further appeal to the Supreme Court against the High Court decision.Arguments in Supreme CourtSenior Advocate Sachin Dutta, appearing for Inox, argued that Ahmedabad had become the juridical seat of the arbitration as the parties changed the venue to there by mutual consent. Therefore, the Ahmedabad court will have jurisdiction, as per the precedent in BGS SGS Soma, he argued.Senior Advocate Purvish Jitendra Malkan, appearing for Jayesh Electricals, argued that place of arbitration can be changed only on the basis of a written agreement. Therefore, the exclusive jurisdiction of the Jaipur court was not affected by the continuation of proceedings in Ahmedabad. He also argued that the arbitrator’s finding that the venue was shifted by mutual consent from Jaipur to Ahmedabad has reference only to Section 20(3) of the Arbitration and Conciliation Act,1996 as Ahmedabad was in reality a convenient place for the arbitration to take place,the seat of the arbitration always remaining at Jaipur.Findings of the Supreme CourtAt the outset, the Court rejected the argument that a written agreement was necessary to shift the venue of the arbitration. The Court noted that the arbitrator had recorded the consent of both the parties to change the venue to Ahmedabad, and the same has not been disputed or challenged.”…the parties may mutually arrive at a seat of arbitration and may change the seat of arbitration by mutual agreement which is recorded by the arbitrator in his award to which no challenge is made by either part”, the Court observed.Further, referring to BGS SGS Soma, the Court held that the moment Ahmedabad was chosen as the venue, the Courts at Ahmedabad acquired exclusive jurisdiction as the seat of the arbitration.”This case would show that the moment the seat is chosen as Ahmedabad, it is akin to an exclusive jurisdiction clause, thereby vesting the courts at Ahmedabad with exclusive jurisdiction to deal with the arbitration…….it is clear that the parties have, by mutual agreement, entered into an agreement to substitute the venue at Jaipur with Ahmedabad as the place/seat of arbitration under Section 20(1) of the Arbitration and Conciliation Act, 1996″. Referring to the precedent in Indus Mobile Distribution Private Limited vs. Datawind Innovations Private Limited, (2017) 7 SCC 678, the Court observed that “the “venue” being shifted from Jaipur to Ahmedabad is really a shifting of the venue/place of arbitration with reference to Section 20(1), and not with reference to Section 20(3) of the Arbitration and Conciliation Act, 1996, as it has been made clear that Jaipur does not continue to be the seat of arbitration and Ahmedabad is now the seat designated by the parties, and not a venue to hold meetings””Once the seat of arbitration is replaced by mutual agreement to be at Ahmedabad, the Courts at Rajasthan are no longer vested with jurisdiction as exclusive jurisdiction is now vested in the Courts at Ahmedabad, given the change in the seat of arbitration”, the Top Court said in conclusion.The appeal was allowed holding that Ahmedabad Court had jurisdiction to deal with the Section 34 petition.For further reading :The Conundrum Of The “Seat” And “Venue” Of Arbitration: When Is “Venue” A “Seat”?
