Data corrections to deficit figures offer hope for Osborne

whatsapp KCS-content DOWNWARD revisions to government deficit figures for November, and a fall in the deficit for December, will reassure chancellor George Osborne that he is on course to hit his targets for the financial year.Government borrowing dropped to £16.8bn in December, it was revealed yesterday, considerably below the forecasts of economists who expected a figure closer to £20bn.And public sector net borrowing (PSNB) for November was revised down by £2.2bn, to £21.1bn.“If current trends are replicated over the whole fiscal year the deficit would come in around £146bn, meaning that chancellor Osborne would modestly undershoot his target of £149bn,” said Howard Archer of IHS Global Insight.The figures suggested that government finances might be gradually coming under control; December’s PSNB was down by £4.2bn against the same time in 2009.Excluding financial interventions, the deficit for the financial year up to December is £118.4bn, down from £126.8bn in the final year of the Labour administration.However, government borrowing levels are “still hefty,” Archer said. In November the Office for Budget Responsibility (OBR) slightly reduced its forecast for the year’s deficit to £148.5bn, on the back of improved economic data.“This should at least provide the Treasury with a crumb of comfort on a very difficult day,” commented Nida Ali of the Ernst and Young Item club. “November’s surge in government spending appears to have been a one-off,” she said.Government revenues were boosted by a year on year increase in VAT receipts of nearly nine per cent. Even allowing for the VAT rise, this “suggests greater consumer activity in December than other sources have reported,” Ali added.Yesterday also marked the first time that the government’s investment in banking groups RBS and Lloyds TSB were included in the data. by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStorySerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeautooverload.comDeclassified Vietnam War Photos The Public Wasn’t Meant To Seeautooverload.comElite HeraldExperts Discover Girl Born From Two Different SpeciesElite HeraldDrivepedia20 Of The Most Underrated Vintage CarsDrivepedia Data corrections to deficit figures offer hope for Osborne Sharecenter_img Show Comments ▼ Tags: NULL Tuesday 25 January 2011 9:28 pm whatsapp More From Our Partners A ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgBiden received funds from top Russia lobbyist before Nord Stream 2 giveawaynypost.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgUK teen died on school trip after teachers allegedly refused her pleasnypost.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years read more

Playtech sees ‘viable’ future in Asia despite profit slump

first_img Regions: Asia Topics: Finance Tags: Online Gambling Playtech sees ‘viable’ future in Asia despite profit slump 23rd August 2018 | By contenteditor Finance CEO is optimistic market has stabilised as company increases focus on regulated revenues AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Playtech CEO Mor Weizer insisted this (Thursday) morning that Asia remains a “commercially viable and attractive market” for the company despite a surge in competition across the continent having led to a fall in profit for the first half of 2018.Playtech’s adjusted net profit on a constant currency basis slumped by 38% year-on-year to €83.3m (£75m/$96m) from €125.5m and earnings before interest and deductions fell by 13% to €145m from €170.9m.Playtech sources told at the start of July that a price war in China was the primary reason behind the Isle of Man-based company issuing a profit warning, and although Weizer said today that the outlook in Asia had “stabilised” since then, the impact of the region’s competitive environment on the company’s bottom line was clear.Total sales excluding Asia were up 35% on a reported basis, but with Asia included in overall revenue figures, a modest 6% increase was registered to €436.5m from €421.6m. Additionally, whilst the B2B Gaming Division’s average daily revenue for the first 52 days of the third quarter was down 13%, excluding Asia would have led to the division posting a 6% increase.“Asia is not going to disappear,” said Weizer, who highlighted the content provider-led structure of the region as having presented a unique challenge to the company.“It is still a growing market; perhaps not at the levels of previous years, but still in the high single digits, I have been told. However, a year ago there were only five companies operating in the market and now there are 30-plus.”Weizer said that Playtech would maintain its pricing structure in Asia whilst focusing on premium services as the company’s management does not believe the pricing models adopted by some competitors in the region are sustainable.Weizer added in an earnings call that low barriers to entry in Asia and a “very price sensitive” environment had led to headwinds, with an influx of newcomers introducing a “highly competitive pricing environment”.“As the market has developed it has become increasingly competitive at an operator level, but also at a content provider level,” he said. “Things have stabilised broadly in Asia and we don’t see as many coming into market now.”Playtech chairman Alan Jackson acknowledged “disappointing” market conditions in Asia, but added that they are “not reflective of the core strength of the Playtech model as the regulated segment continues to report organic growth and encouraging momentum”.Jackson added that Playtech’s increasing focus on regulated markets – leading to a rise in the proportion of the group’s regulated revenue from 50% to 69% year-on-year – had represented “progress”. Regulated revenue at the current run rate is expected to be at between 80% and 90% for the full year.Weizer said: “Playtech has identified key markets in Europe and Latin America which have the potential to increase their online penetration of gaming revenue and where Playtech’s regulated markets focused capabilities have an advantage. These markets are the focus for increasing Playtech’s scale and distribution through signing new licensees.“Looking towards 2019, licensing regimes are expected to be introduced in major European countries including the Netherlands, Sweden, Switzerland and some commentators expect significant steps forward in Germany.“Playtech already has an agreement in place with national operator Holland Casino in the Netherlands and remains in discussions with potential customers in others.”Weizer added that Playtech would continue to consider “small-size, bolt-on acquisitions” after finalising a $1bn takeover of Snaitech earlier this month.Referring to Snaitech, he also believes that Italy’s biggest sports betting firm’s position in the market will be strengthened following the country’s ban on gambling advertising, which is expected to hurt smaller players who are less well established.Analysts at Regulus Partners reacted to Playtech’s financial update by saying: “In a more complex, mobile-first, increasingly regulated and disaggregated world, the extent to which Playtech can continue to adapt and thrive, especially at the margin level, remains to be seen in our view, with Snaitech adding significant legacy and regulatory risks, as well as scale and diversification.”Earlier this week, Playtech confirmed the appointment of Ian Penrose as a non-executive director amid reports that he has been lined up to take over as chairman.Playtech’s share price on the London Stock Exchange improved by nearly 10% this morning before settling back to a 3.5% rise by midday.

UK greyhound racing receives £3m boost from bookmakers

first_img Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Tags: OTB and Betting Shops Race Track and Racino Horse racing Regions: UK & Ireland 14th January 2019 | By contenteditor UK greyhound racing receives £3m boost from bookmakers Topics: Sports betting Horse racing The UK greyhound racing industry is to receive up to £3m in additional funding from betting operators through a new voluntary agreement that will see the British Greyhound Racing Fund’s 2019 income grow to £10m. The UK greyhound racing industry is to receive up to £3m in additional funding from betting operators through a new voluntary agreement that will see the British Greyhound Racing Fund’s income grow to £10m in 2019.The agreement will see Betfred, William Hill, The Stars Group-owned Sky Betting and Gaming and Paddy Power Betfair provide funding to improve greyhound welfare standards across the industry.This includes dedicated training programmes for veterinary staff, the expansion of an injury recovery scheme for dogs, and increased funding for the Greyhound Trust, the charity responsible for homing retired greyhounds.The extra funding will also be used to improve the safety of the UK’s 21 licensed racetracks, improving kennels and providing air conditioning for trainers’ vehicles.Negotiations between industry bodies and the bookmakers were chaired by the Department of Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, and follows GVC Holdings’ Ladbrokes Coral, Bet365 and Ireland’s JenningsBet making voluntary commitments to increase industry funding. This underpins the Greyhound Commitment, a long-term strategic plan developed by the Greyhound Board of Great Britain designed to improve animal welfare and protect the sport’s integrity.“I am delighted to have reached an agreement with leading operators to ensure the welfare of our greyhounds is protected and improved through this fund,” Minister for Sport and Civil Society Mims Davies said of the deal.“As the sixth most watched sport in Britain, it is clear that the welfare and care of all racing greyhounds, from registration to retirement, must be a fundamental part of its successful future,” she explained.Davies also urged all bookmakers yet to sign up to the voluntary funding agreement and Greyhound Commitment to do so to prove their support for the sport.Greyhound Board of Great Britain (GBGB) managing director Mark Bird said he was extremely grateful to the bookmakers for agreeing to provide additional funding to the sector.“The GBGB has outlined clear ambitions, within our Greyhound Commitment as to where this new income will be spent, with the majority supporting greyhound welfare standards and initiatives, both throughout their racing careers but also as part their homing process following retirement from the sport,” he said.British Greyhound Racing Fund (BGRF) chair Joe Scanlon said with income rising to around £10m in 2019 as a result of the deal, the body was close to meeting its funding targets for the year.“This agreement would not have been possible without the support of the Minister and her team at DCMS, Lord Lipsey who has worked tirelessly to improve the welfare of greyhounds over many years and of course the major bookmakers for their continued support of the Fund,” Scanlon said.

The 100 Best Players In The World: 2 Beauden Barrett

He will kick the ball back but once there’s a poor kick return, he’ll use his speed to ghost in and out of the line.”Would it be a surprise if he inspired New Zealand to a third straight World Cup in the autumn? No. That’s what wondrous players can do. Barrett is only 28 and has many fine years ahead of him. There’s uncertainty about what he does after Japan – home comforts or wanderlust? Wherever he ends up, we’ll be fascinated by him.Cup Leader?: Will Barrett lead NZ to World Cup glory in Japan (Getty Images)Barrett has more of an understated confidence than any hint of arrogance. Press him about his standing within the game and he is modest, saying: “It’s a privilege to be talked about as one of the world’s best players, but personally I don’t really want to be put on a pedestal because ultimately it’s a team sport. I’m only as good as the ball the forwards give me and the service I get from my scrummie. Then it’s down to the options I’m getting from the backs outside me.”As for career ambitions, Barrett admits an obsession to be the best will lead to him scrutinising his own game. “When you sit back and set yourself goals, you want to be the best player you can be in your position and, quite often, what stems from that is being coveted as the best in the world. I would say there’s always room for improvement. I’m never satisfied with what I’ve done.” The 100 Best Players In The World: 100-91 Collapse Our next section of the 100 best players… The 100 Best Players In The World: 20-11 We kick off our list of the 100… The 100 Best Players In The World: 10-4 The 100 Best Players In The World: 90-81 Expand Beauden Barrett narrowly misses out on top spot in our list of the Top 100 Players In The World Our next section of the 100 best players… The 100 Best Players In The World: 80-71 The 100 Best Players In The World: 70-61 Expand LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS The 100 Best Players In The World: 80-71 The 100 Best Players In The World: 70-61 Don’t forget to follow Rugby World on Facebook and Twitter.

DeSantis says new moment-of-silence law in public schools protects religious freedom LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply On this day in 1939, German forces bombard Poland on land and from the air. World War II had begun.The German invasion of Poland was a primer on how Hitler intended to wage war–what would become the “blitzkrieg” strategy. This was characterized by extensive bombing early on to destroy the enemy’s air capacity, railroads, communication lines, and munitions dumps, followed by a massive land invasion with overwhelming numbers of troops, tanks, and artillery. Once the German forces had plowed their way through, devastating a swath of territory, infantry moved in, picking off any remaining resistance.Once Hitler had a base of operations within the target country, he immediately began setting up “security” forces to annihilate all enemies of his Nazi ideology, whether racial, religious, or political. Concentration camps for slave laborers and the extermination of civilians went hand in hand with German rule of a conquered nation. For example, within one day of the German invasion of Poland, Hitler was already setting up SS “Death’s Head” regiments to terrorize the populace.Although 1 million strong, the Polish forces were severely under-equipped and attempted to take the Germans head-on with horsed cavaliers in a forward concentration, rather than falling back to more natural defensive positions. The outmoded thinking of the Polish commanders coupled with the antiquated state of its military was simply no match for the overwhelming and modern mechanized German forces.About 65,000 Polish troops were killed in the fighting, with 420,000 others being captured by the Germans and 240,000 more by the Soviets (for a total of 660,000 prisoners). Up to 120,000 Polish troops escaped to neutral Romania, and another 20,000 to Latvia and Lithuania, with the majority eventually making their way to France or Britain.Great Britain would respond with bombing raids over Germany three days later.

These included a concert performance by Britain’s Got Talent string quartet Escala, an evening with Captain Guy Disney and a sponsored mistletoe ball. Every employee also nominated a charity of their choice to receive a £125 donation through MyGiving. The initiative, a staff-led programme run by parent company Ecclesiastical Insurance Group, generated £19,500 for 106 different fundraising organisations. [youtube][/youtube]T.M. Lewin & British Red CrossT.M. Lewin has launched a Shirt Swap campaign with British Red Cross, fronted by Gary Lineker. The two are asking people to donate their old shirts in a T.M. Lewin or British Red Cross store. In return they will be given £10 off when they next buy four or more shirts, or £5 off any single shirt purchase. The donated shirts will be sold in a British Red Cross shop. PMP Recruitment & UnseenPMP Recruitment, part of Cordant Group, has launched a partnership with leading charity Unseen that will help to raise funds and supplies for the victims of modern slavery. The firm will be promoting one fundraising event each month during 2018, whilst also offering support to victims who may be seeking employment opportunities as they look to rebuild their lives. The first campaign of the year saw PMP employees, with the help of clients and suppliers, put together 400 survivor kits for people who have been subjected to modern slavery with a combined value of £8,000. Petplan & Cats ProtectionPetplan has now given over £5 million to Cats Protection since the beginning of their partnership in 2001. Whenever a Cats Protection adopter continues their cover onto a full policy from their four weeks’ free insurance, Petplan gives 10% of the premium back to the charity and a further 10% each year the policy is renewed. In addition, supporters can get a quote via a special Petplan link, which will also trigger 10% of the premium to be donated when the policy is taken out. Advertisement EY graduate team & Children 1stA team of graduate accountants from EY has launched a recipe book to raise funds for Scotland’s national children’s charity, Children 1st. A Taste of Glasgow provides a collection of the city’s best recipes, with contributions from some of Glasgow’s most celebrated restaurants including Martin Wishart, Brian Maule and Master Chef winner Gary Maclean, the book also contains recipes from local favourites such as Bilson Eleven, the Hillhead Bookclub and Finnieston restaurant Chelsea Market. The seven employees from EY’s Glasgow office are competing against teams from across Scotland to see who can raise the most money for the charity as part of Dragons’ Glen, Scotland’s entrepreneurial challenge for businesses, where groups are tasked with turning an investment of £500 into a profit of £5,000 in five months. Alpha FMC & The Lucy Faithfull FoundationAlpha FMC has raised over £17,000 and donated consultancy skills to The Lucy Faithfull Foundation in a year-long partnership. Alpha’s approximately 275 employees wanted to use their year-long partnership with the The Lucy Faithfull Foundation, to provide more than money so the company donated the time and expertise of its employees to work on flagship projects that are transforming the way the charity manages its internal communications and information-flow systems. And as well as providing the charity with the sort of pro bono consultancy services  normally out of reach to small and medium-sized charities, Alpha employees worldwide have also pedalled, run, baked (main image) and  quizzed their way to raising over £17,000 for the charity. SSP UK & MacmillanSSP UK has named Macmillan Cancer Support as its new charity of the year. Throughout 2018, SSP staff across the company’s near 700 UK outlets will take part in fundraising for the charity. This includes four dedicated fundraising events such as Macmillan’s well-known annual Coffee Morning, at locations including its London and Birmingham offices. Macmillan will also receive a third of the donations raised in till-point collection tins for the SSP Foundation. A £100,000 (US$139,000) grant from the SSP Foundation will add a further boost to the fundraising.
