Brokerage pivot hits Zeal Network revenue in 2019

first_img19th February 2020 | By Daniel O’Boyle Regions: Europe Central and Eastern Europe Germany German lottery broker Zeal Network’s revenue and earnings declined in 2019, but the business said the year was still a success despite the acquisition of Lotto24 and move away from lottery betting affecting its financial performance.In May 2019, Zeal completed the acquisition of its former subsidiary Lotto24 and moved its registered office from the UK to Germany. This came as part of a change in business model to focus on lottery brokerage services, rather than lottery betting.The business said its 26.7% revenue decrease to €113.5m was due to a high prize pay-out owed to the old secondary lottery business and revenue dis-synergies resulting from the business model change.The business’s revenue came on billings – comprising all stakes from customers, including brokerage stakes and associated VAT, net of bets – of €466.7m, up 57.5% year-on-year.Other operating revenue came to €8.1m, meaning total operating performance (TOP), or the sum of revenue and other operating income, came to €121.6m, down 23.9% year-on-year.Zeal’s personnel expenses came to €23.0m, down 20.1%. This was largely due to a planned reduction in the number of employees at Zeal from 350 after the takeover, to 190. Absorbed employees from the Lotto24 takeover cost Zeal €22.0m.Other operating expenses decreased 17.0% to €69.5m, of which €22.1m were marketing expenses, up 12.2%. Direct operating expenses fell 33.6% to €29.4m, while indirect operating expenses declined 8.1% to €18.1m.This resulted in adjusted earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA) of €28.8m, down 39.6%.The business incurred amortisation and depreciation costs of €8.8m, eight times the cost in 2018, and non-recurring expenses of €11.1m, up 33.7%. These non-recurring expenses were mostly due to the business model change, at €9.1m, plus a further €2.0m from the Lotto24 takeover.Zeal’s earnings before interest and tax came to €8.8m, down 77.0%.Zeal did not disclose its final result after interest and tax.Jonas Mattsson, chief financial officer of ZEAL Network, said that although Zeal’s final result was lower than in 2018, it still represented a success due to the business model change and the costs of integrating Lotto24.“We are aware that we could only reach the latest milestones in the history of ZEAL Group with the support of our customers, employees and shareholders,” Mattsson said. “After leaving behind a long period of legal uncertainties and significantly improving our risk profile with the end of the secondary lottery business as the leading online provider of state lottery products, we can now fully focus on the continuously growing and socially valuable German online lottery business with two strong brands.“Knowing the great value and high loyalty of our customers, we look forward to setting out on this exciting journey.”For the fourth quarter of 2019, revenue came to €20.3m, down 53.5% year-on-year. This came on billings of €134.2mThe operator’s total operating performance fell to €20.4m, down 55.3%.Personnel expenses came to €5.8m, while other operating expenses totalled €14.5m. Marketing expenses came to €6.0m, direct operating expenses €2.6m and indirect costs of operations €5.1m.This resulted in fourth-quarter EBITDA of €500,000, less than one-thirtieth of EBITDA in Q4 of 2018.Zeal’s net result before interest and tax for the fourth quarter came to a net loss of €4.1m, down from a €9.2m profit in 2018.Zeal Network also issued its guidance for 2020, with billings projected in the range of €550-570m. Revenue for the year is expected to come in between €70m and €73m, with EBITDA to fall between €5m and €8m.

I think the market crash has thrown up a FTSE 100 bargain!

first_img Image source: Getty Images. Jabran Khan | Friday, 17th April, 2020 | More on: RR See all posts by Jabran Khan Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Everybody loves a bargain, I know I do. A bargain in the form of a blue chip stock is no different in my eyes. This is exactly what I feel Rolls-Royce (LSE:RR) represents right now due to the FTSE 100 market crash.The COVID-19 pandemic has seen the FTSE 100 lose approximately 25% of its value. Rolls-Royce itself saw near 60% wiped off its share price value. 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…The announcement of full year results at the end of February saw RR’s share price trading at close to 620p per share. Fast forward to the first Friday in April and a low of 250p per share was RR’s position. This drop off is where I feel the opportunity lies. These shares look mighty cheap to me. RR is the world’s second-largest maker of aircraft engines. In 2018, RR was named in the top 20 defence contractors in the world.  Full year resultsAt the end of February, RR announced full year results with some interesting takeaways. The first piece of information that struck me was the 25% increase in underlying core profit, to £810m. A healthy improvement in net cash position to £1.4bn is always good to hear, in case operations cease and you need cash reserves. But how often does that happen, you say? It pleased me to read there was a reduction in debt level, of £1.1bn. Debt generally makes me uneasy. However, a company managing its debt does make me feel better. COVID-19Last week, CEO Warren East announced a trading update relating to the Covid-19 pandemic and its impact. It revealed that RR is joining the Ventilator Challenge UK consortium. There was also mention of salary cuts for executives during this time.RR announced its decision to draw down fully on a £2.5bn revolving credit facility (RCF). Along with an additional RCF of £1.5bn and existing cash, RR’s liquidity stands at an almighty £6.7bn. The final dividend payment of 7.1p per share has been scrapped, saving a further £137m. Its 2020 forecasted financial guidance has also been scrapped. Year to date, there has been a 25% reduction in flying hours for its engines as planes are grounded worldwide. This reduction was approximately 50% in March overall. Next stepsI anticipate orders for new engines will be affected over the coming months and perhaps even a year or two. Rolls-Royce’s saving grace is that it is only one of two major suppliers of jet engines for wide body aircraft. For that reason, I do not imagine that RR will encounter any fatal problems. It also helps that the company possesses lucrative and trusted relationships with Boeing and Airbus. It is worth noting that the lockdowns and aircraft groundings will not last forever. There has already been easing of restrictions in some European and Asian countries. The world will fly again!Rolls-Royce is critical to the world’s airline industry, in my opinion. Further short-term pain is expected. But do not be surprised to see these cheap shares soaring high in the months and years to come. I think the market crash has thrown up a FTSE 100 bargain!

So if your team has made waves this season, send in your nomination now TAGS: Highlight Pride of Scotland: Heriot’s took the trophy north last year after a magnificent treble (Robert Perry) LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS “We can score from all areas of the pitch, which can make opponents feel uncomfortable,” their head coach Phil Smith told us.Now we need a team worthy of following in their footsteps. So, have you swept all opponents aside? Have you worked tirelessly to boost playing numbers, or even just survive?

The winning club will receive some training gear and two cases of Crabbie’s with which to celebrate. The British & Irish Lions can wait a little longer – there’s some important business at hand. The Rugby World Team of the Year – sponsored by our friends at Crabbie’s – will be decided in the coming days and we’re inviting amateur or semi-pro sides from across Europe to send in their nominations.We’re looking for teams who have chalked up a hatful of wins and in all likelihood claimed silverware, but success comes in many forms.For example, our 2012 winners Old Bristolians not only swept to a league and vase double but used the tragic death of second-team captain Robbie Stuart as a catalyst for rapid growth and selfless charity work. The club had raised nearly £140,000 for CLIC Sargent at the time of their Rugby World award.Sale captain Josh Beaumont got his hands on the trophy in 2013 as captain of Durham University before it stayed in Surrey in successive years. Farnham, the club where Jonny Wilkinson started his amazing rugby journey, enjoyed success at both ends of the scale in 2014, with their thriving mini section – they took 300 youngsters to a beach rugby festival in Devon – evidence of their rounded approach.Past winner: Josh Beaumont lifted our Team of the Year trophy whilst at Durham University (Getty)And then Battersea Ironsides, where new Lions tourist Kyle Sinckler rocked up as an eight-year-old to try rugby for the first time, were able to add our coveted cup to their cabinet.Ironsides won an historic treble that year, a feat matched by our current Team of the Year Heriot’s. The Edinburgh club won the Premiership, Scottish Cup and Charity Shield, playing with a panache that lit up the game north of the border.last_img read more

The PLAY-TIME apartments is a project of seven units for short term rental in Ciudad Lineal, Madrid. The developer chose the place because he was looking for an oasis in the city. As architects , we proposed to intensify that condition. The movement of the building gives each housing with its own terrace and the construction system provides its own garden in the perimeter. The units, two per floor , are independently assembled on a vertical core -with elevator and services- so they can be oriented freely, limited only by urban conditions and the spiral staircase that climbs around the perimeter, to which they turn their backs.Save this picture!DiagramThe result is seven tree houses, surrounded by more than forty different species of climbing plants, chosen according to the orientation, whether they are evergreen or deciduous, their leaves and fruit color, flowering period, smells and textures. Thus the green tapestry provides the main architectural features of the envelope (solar and hygrothermal control, vision and intimacy adjustments) and a catalog of sensorial experiences.Save this picture!© Jesús GranadaSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Jesús GranadaAs a result, the building collects the aspirations of the developer as well as disciplinary obsessions (the vertical garden, the spiral organization, typological subversions, and the apparently free and in-formal envelope shape) but it does so in a way we had to learn everything along the way and we now feel that we could not do without any of the elements without sacrificing the entire project.Save this picture!DiagramProject gallerySee allShow lessHow to Create Animated GIFs in RevitArticlesRepurposed Material Creates Distinct Felt Tile Patterns that Provide Sound ControlArchitecture NewsProject locationAddress:Calle De Fernández Caro, 35, 28027 Madrid, SpainLocation to be used only as a reference.

The form of Cedar House is a simple gesture toward the proportion and profiles of the existing streetscape, allowing the new building to merge with the surrounding array of early 20th century stone houses. The resulting building mass is ‘split’ and manipulated to create a wide central corridor extending from the front gate, through the main house and across the backyard, to finish as a diving platform for the pool at the rear of the property. This central circulation path encompasses the entirely of the site both inside and out, acting as a ‘spine’ that separates the children’s bedroom and bathrooms from the parent’s bedroom and study as well as spatially organising the larger open plan living spaces.Save this picture!© Sam NoonanSave this picture!PlansSave this picture!© Sam NoonanA reserved palette of materials creates a serene minimalist aesthetic. Rendered white plaster on blockwork, exposed off-form concrete, polished concrete floors and bagged white brickwork emphasise the simplicity of the building’s form and internal volumes. Externally is the distinctive charred cedar cladding, selected for its unique aesthetic and texture, longevity, flexibility and sustainability. The cedar boards, which were charred by hand on site work to soften the hard lines of the geometric building mass and allow the house to settle within the surrounding context while still accentuating it’s striking contemporary appearance.Save this picture!© Sam NoonanThe needs of our client’s growing young family were carefully considered in the programming of spaces. A series of smaller, secluded spaces join and overlook the larger open living areas. A mezzanine reading platform accessed via an oak stair creates an inspiring, secluded space, private but with views and connection to the main living spaces and external landscaping beyond. To the side of the lounge room, two custom made timber cavity sliding doors can be utilised to divide the children’s play/study space, providing an ability to adapt to cater for the family’s changing needs.Save this picture!© Sam NoonanThe landscape design plays a key role in creating a connection between internal and external spaces. The custom formed, raised concrete path is the physical and visual continuation of the internal corridor concept and as with the internal spaces acts to divide and organise larger portions of space.

It has received matched investment of £6,650 towards its community share offer, which saw 396 local people come together raise over £53,000 to set up a co-operative grocery store after their local greengrocers closed.Fiona Russell, Chair of Marsden Grocery Community Benefit Society, said:“Marsden can feel a long way away from anywhere, particularly for older people and those struggling to make ends meet. Losing our greengrocers felt like a real moment of threat in our community. We were seriously worried that other retail businesses would follow and that our self-sufficiency, which is a village hallmark, would be lost.”“Support from the Community Shares Booster programme has been so important to the development of the shop. It gave us much-needed hope when we felt daunted by how much we had to raise. And the process of assessment itself was really helpful. It made us really think through the choices we were making and our business plan is far stronger for having to go through such a rigorous procedure. All in all, it’s strengthened our planning, built our confidence.”Matthew Mckeague, CEO at the Architectural Heritage Fund, said: Advertisement Tagged with: Funding heritage About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

The ultimate goal is to come up with a new generation of solar power technologies that will improve mission performance, increase solar array life, and ultimately allow solar-powered vehicles to explore deeper into space than ever before.NASA’s Langley Research Center in Hampton, Virginia, manages the GCD program for the agency’s Space Technology Mission Directorate in Washington.For more information about NASA’s Space Technology Mission Directorate, the Game Changing Development Program and cross-cutting space technologies of interest to the agency, visit www.nasa.gov/spacetech.
