Snaitech boosts Playtech revenue but hits profit in H1

first_img Tags: Card Rooms and Poker Mobile Online Gambling OTB and Betting Shops Increased B2C revenue resulting from Playtech’s 2018 acquisition of Italy’s Snaitech offset a decline in B2B revenue for the gaming solutions giant in H1, though the deal also resulted in increased depreciation and amortisation and financial costs, which hit profits.Group revenue for the six months to 30 June 2019 amounted to €736.1m, a 69% year-on-year increase from H1 2018, when the supplier reported revenue of €436.5m. Growth was largely down to increased B2C revenue, which soared 345% to €438.2m.This was driven by the Snaitech acquisition, which was agreed in April last year, and completed in August. The operator contributed €395.8m in revenue for H1, a significant increase on the €61.3m generated from Playtech’s stake in the business in 2018.However on a pro forma basis, comparing Snaitech’s figures as if it had been part of the group for the first six months of 2018, revenue was down 11% year-on-year. This was caused by an 18% drop in gaming machine revenue, something Playtech credited to increased gaming taxes, offset by strong online growth. Total online revenue for the period was up 22%.Elsewhere in Playtech’s B2C division, white label revenue, including Sun Bingo, fell 2% year-on-year to €24.3m. Sun Bingo was the unit’s standout performer, though not by enough to stop other white label brands’ declines hitting revenue. However many of these brands have been consolidated or ceased operating, as part of a ‘housekeeping exercise’ to thin out the number of white label sites.Financials division TradeTech group also struggled in H1, with revenue falling 25%, while casual gaming remained flat with no improvement in revenue for the period.However the B2C retail division grew strongly, albeit from a low base. Revenue was up 114% to €9.9m, as a result of the expansion of the Germany-facing HPYBET betting shop franchise.The Snaitech-driven B2C growth was not matched by Playtech’s core B2B operations, with revenue down 9% year-on-year at €265.5m. The decline was due in part to a 24% drop in casino revenue to €129.8m, offset by growth in B2B sports revenue, which rose 27% to €60.6m.Casino struggled in H1 as a result of a 42% year-on-year decline in revenue from Asia, though its impact was mitigated slightly by a 9% increase in revenue from regulated markets. Regulated market revenue grew to represent 49% of total casino income, compared to 40% in H1 2018.Services revenue, meanwhile, grew 12% to €46.2m, aided by the continued growth of OPAP in Greece and Caliente in Mexico and underpinned by increased machine hardware sales. Bingo, on the other hand, was down 10% at €11.8m, with poker declining to €4.3m. As with casino, poker has seen unregulated market revenue fall, dropping 18% in H1, and the regulated market contribution increase. Revenue from licensed jurisdictions now accounts for 71% of the vertical’s total.Playtech’s significant growth in size and scale prompted by the Snaitech deal contributed to a sharp increase in distribution costs, which almost doubled to €492.8m, and administrative expenses, which grew to €78.9m.A further charge of €4.6m relating to the impairment of other receivables, which left earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation of €159.8m, up 32.7% year-on-year.However Playtech was then hit by significantly increased depreciation and amortisation, as a result of the acquisition of Snaitech. Depreciation increased by 52% to €24.9m, of which €8.8m was incurred through Snaitech. Excluding acquired assets, underlying depreciation increased by 6%.Amortisation shot up 89% to €83.6m, due to the acquisition of Snaitech and a €10.5m impact from adopting the International Financial Reporting Standard 16. Excluding the amortisation within acquisitions, amortisation increased by 32% to €25.7 million.Finance costs, meanwhile, increased 36% to €27.4m on a reported basis. On an adjusted basis this rise was even steeper, up 237% from the prior year, driven by a €12.5m rise in interest related to bond loans, including €10.5m on the €530.0m bond raised in October 2018.Though a 43% increase in finance income to €8.9m offset this in part, it saw Playtech’s operating profit for the half plummet to €28.0m, compared to €124.2m for the prior year. After income taxes, Playtech’s net profit for the period stood at €18.0m, down from €118.0m, though the business did record a foreign exchange gain of €2.2m, taking total income for the period to €20.2m.Had numbers been adjusted to strip out non-cash and one-off items such as amortisation of intangibles, professional and finance costs, deferred tax and unrealised fair value changes, profit for the quarter would have been €72.0m.Playtech’s directors noted that this figure, representing a 19.0% year-on-year decline, more closely represented Playtech’s trading performance for the period.In current trading, regulated B2B revenue, excluding acquisitions and the impact of increased Remote Gaming Duty in the UK, was up 4% for the first 51 days of H2 2019. Snaitech, it said, had shown strong underlying growth, and had not yet been impacted by the Italian advertising ban.As a result, and based on the H1 figures, Playtech has reiterated its adjusted EBITDA projection for the year of between €390m and €415m, and expected B2B and Snaitech to perform well for the remainder of 2019. However, it added, Asia would continue to struggle – at the current run rate, the region is expected to contribute €115m in annual revenue, down from the €150m projection issued earlier in the year.

Six Nations: Club v country battle in France

first_imgAs for Clermont, vice-president Jean-Marc Lhermet said they intended to play Domingo against Grenoble, warning the FFR that they risk “initiating tensions between the clubs and the France coaching staff because I believe that, on this subject, the clubs stand together”.Saint-André recognises he must tread carefully in the days ahead, doing what’s best for France without antagonising the clubs. As usual when rugby goes to war it is the players caught in the crossfire. Huget returns to training with Toulouse today but asked if he expected to make the trip to Biarritz on Saturday he replied: “I don’t know anything…it’s a difficult period for them (the Toulouse coaches) and for us, but it’s not for me to pass judgement on the situation.” NOT FOR FEATURED In all probability PSA had his coffee and croissants on Monday morning while reading the latest edition of Midi Olympique. The reports and analysis of Sunday’s victory over Italy would have gladdened his heart (Rabah Slimani’s red card and creaking scrum apart), but PSA must have shuddered when he turned to page four. Under the heading ‘La grogne de clubs’ (the rumbling discontent of the clubs), Toulouse, Clermont and Stade Francais all made clear their opposition to the idea of resting players this weekend.Time to rest? Stade fly-half Jules PlissonFor Toulouse, in particular, the issue has become a bête noire with club president René Bouscatel resigning his seat on the LNR board in December in protest at the FFR-LNR agreement over player release. The passage of time hasn’t diluted his anger; quite the reverse in fact, judging by his latest rant. “I really have a lot of anger against the connivance of the league and federation,” fumed Bouscatel. “It’s going to take time, but they’re going to have a war.”On Monday evening L’Equipe reported that despite phone calls from Saint-André and FFR president Pierre Camou, Bouscatel was refusing to stand down Nyanga, Picamoles, and Huget from club duty this weekend.The words of Stade Francais coach Gonzalo Quesada were more temperate, the former Argentina fly-half saying he wanted all his players back for the trip to Brive because “one has to understand that we also have our objectives”. In demand: Yoann Huget breaks against Italy – but will he be wearing Toulouse colours this weekend?By Gavin MortimerONE WOULD have thought there would be a smile on the face of French rugby this week. Two wins out of two in the Six Nations, already one more than they managed last season. In fact, less than six weeks into 2014 and Les Bleus have already equalled their win tally for the previous calendar year.But the atmosphere within French rugby is fractious when it should be felicitous. For despite the fact the French are level on points with Ireland at the top of the Six Nations table, the clubs aren’t happy – and as they wield most of the power in France, they’re threatening to flex their muscles.Eye of storm: Philippe Saint-AndréThe reason for their chagrin is simple. This weekend sees a full programme of Top 14 fixtures with leaders Clermont facing a tricky trip to Grenoble and second-placed Stade Francais venturing into the back of beyond to play Brive. Toulouse, meanwhile, who lost at home to Montpellier on Saturday and dropped out of the top six as a result, are in Biarritz while reigning champs Castres take on Toulon. Big fixtures, and the clubs want their big players.But France coach Philippe Saint-André, in accordance with the agreement signed between the LNR and the FFR in December, submitted on Monday a request that 12 players be rested this weekend. The drained dozen are those players who started both the England and Italy matches: Yannick Nyanga, Louis Picamoles, Yoann Huget and Jean-Marc Doussain (all Toulouse), Thomas Domingo and Wesley Fofana (Clermont), Nicolas Mas of Montpellier, Toulon’s Mathieu Bastareaud, Bernard Le Roux of Racing, Castres’ Brice Dulin and the Stade Francais pair of Pascal Papé and Jules Plisson.In submitting the request, PSA explained: “We’ve opened a dialogue with the clubs as stipulated in the FFR-LNR agreement, at the heart of which is the players’ welfare…the idea is to try to conserve the players who started both matches.” LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALSlast_img read more

The USA outgun Russia in the Churchill Cup

first_imgWednesday Jun 9, 2010 The USA outgun Russia in the Churchill Cup Amongst the internationals taking place around the world currently, the Churchill Cup got under way in Denver this past weekend with Canada beating Uruguay, and the USA overcoming Russia 39-22 in this featured sports betting match.The Russians looked the stronger side in the first half, but the USA got things going in the second as they stretched the lead after the scores had changed hands numerous times throughout the game.Coached by former Ireland coach Eddie OSullivan, the USA team is steadily building in stature and featured Saracens back Chris Wyles, and Biarritz winger Zee Ngwenya. Both crossed for tries as their side strung together some impressive pieces of play.“We struggled with the pace of the game early out,” said O’Sullivan. “Having not played for over six months, it was expected we’d be a bit rusty. We were happy with the win, but it’s clear we still have a lot of work going forward.“We had a proper patch in the second half, I think a lot of our guys dug deep and our replacements were fast off the bench. They all worked hard for this result.”Despite coming off second best, the Russians were equally impressive with their home grown talent and physical approach to the game, and are definitely going to be an interesting side to keep an eye on at next years World Cup, where the two sides will meet in their opening games.It was an enjoyable match and the standard of play was good to see. Russia face the England Saxons next, today, followed by France A against Uruguay. The USA Eagles will play England next on Sunday.

The Division Bench of Justice Hima Kohli and Justice Subramonium Prasad has further directed the University to collate the information on how many students are seeking early declaration of results on account of pursuing graduate programmes at foreign universities. The order has come in an application moved by a student of Campus Law Centre, Delhi University, seeking early declaration of her LL.B. results in order to secure her LL.M seat at the University of Cambridge. The acting Dean of Exams informed the court today the University is willing to offer ‘comfort letters’ to all such students who are facing difficulty in securing admissions in foreign universities due to delay in declaration of results. The court was also informed by Senior Advocate BB Gupta, who’s also a member of the court constituted the Grievance Redressal Committee, that results can be declared on priority basis in a confidential manner for students who are seeking admissions abroad. Mr Gupta also informed the court that there’s some confusion regarding the evaluation system of the University. There’s a lack of clarity as to whether the University follows a cumulative system of grade evaluation or the comparative system. The court was of the opinion that if the University doesn’t follow the comparative grading system for evaluating undergraduate courses, then there should be no reason for denying priority results in a confidential manner for students seeking admissions abroad. Senior Advocate Saurav Datta, who appeared for the Delhi University, also suggested that the University shall identify the number of students who are seeking priority declaration of results, and the streams these students belong to, so that the courses having maximum number of students seeking comfort letters can get priority for declaration of results. In light of these submissions, the court directed the Dean of Exams to collate information on the total number of students seeking comfort letters, and the courses they are enrolled in, and submit a status report before the next date of hearing. The court will next take up this matter on September 11.  Next Storylast_img read more

April Child Abuse Prevention Month

first_img Lunsford said effective child abuse prevention programs succeed because of partnerships created among social service agencies, schools, faith communities, civic organizations, law enforcement agencies and the business community.“The Pike Regional Child Advocacy Center is the result of such a partnership,” Lunsford said.Mona Watson, Pike Regional CAC director, said, in its five years of operation, the CAC has served 983 alleged victims of child abuse, children who have gone through abusive crisis situations or are at-risk because of problems at home or at school. April has been proclaimed Child Abuse Prevention Month in Pike County.At a ceremony at the Pike Regional Child Advocacy Center in Troy Monday afternoon, Brundidge Mayor Jimmy Ramage, Troy Mayor Jimmy Lunsford and Pike County Commissioner Robin Sullivan presented a proclamation designating April Child Abuse Prevention Month and encouraging the people of Pike County to become involved in supporting families in raising their children in safe, nurturing environments.“Preventing child abuse and neglect is a community problem that depends on involvement among people throughout the community, Lunsford said. “The majority of child abuse cases stem from situations and conditions that are preventable in an engaged and supportive community.” Published 7:27 pm Monday, April 5, 2010 Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Sponsored Content “This year has been a tough one for us because of proration but, with the support of our community and our representatives in the Alabama Legislature, we are making it,” Watson said.A special presentation was planned for Sen. Wendell Mitchell but, due to illness, he was unable to attend the ceremony.“Five years ago when we needed seed money, Sen. Mitchell was instrumental in helping get extra allocations through the Legislature to bring our agency and several others into the funding network,” she said. “Government funding has been a tremendous help to us. Sen. Mitchell and Rep. Alan Boothe have continued to work to help us stay funded and we are so appreciative of them and what they do for children who are crisis situations.”Boothe said there is no greater return on funds than those invested in children.“Children are most important,” he said. “They are so precious that I can’t imagine how anyone could abuse them. But it happens and the people here at the Pike Regional Child Advocacy Center deal with child abuse on a daily basis. If funding were twice as much, the need is there.”Boothe said he can forgive those who abuse children but he cannot forget what they have done.“As long as I’m in Montgomery, I’ll do everything that I can to make sure that the doors of the Pike Regional Child Advocacy Center stay open,” he said.Scherryl Harrison, chair of the CAC board of directors, expressed appreciation to all of the supporters of the CAC on behalf of board members.The Center opened in 2005, but Harrison, who is an assistant district attorney, said the need for such a center was recognized as early as 1987.Although it was evident that children were victims of abuse, the intervention efforts were disjointed.“It has taken a village for us to come together and, to as my mother would say, ‘put our money where our mouth is,” Harrison said. “Now we have it all. We are a ministry. We have a mission, and we are making a difference.” Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson Print Article Penny Hoarder Issues “Urgent” Alert: 6 Companies Are… By The Penny Hoarder Book Nook to reopen By Jaine Treadwell Latest Stories You Might Like Sisters supports ‘Relay’ tonight An elderly gentleman rolled down the car window. “What’s going on here?” he asked. “A Sunday buffet?
