first_img Affiliate giant Catena Media has reported a year-on-year increase in profit for the third quarter, despite also experiencing a decline in revenue during the period.Total revenue for the three months thought to 30 September came in at €26.4m (£22.5m/$29.2m), down 5% from €27.7m in the corresponding period last year. Organic growth excluding paid revenue also slowed down by 10% in Q3. However, the Q3 figure represented an 11.4% improvement on the second quarter of the year.Catena noted year-on-year declines across all areas of the business, with search revenue, its primary source of income, slipping from €23.7m on Q3 of 2018 to €23.1m this year. Paid revenue also fell 22.2% from €3.6m to €2.8m, while subscription revenue slipped 25.0% from €400,000 to €500,000.Revenue from revenue sharing arrangements accounted for 42% of overall revenue in the period, while revenue from cost per acquisition comprised 43%, fixed fees 13% and subscription revenue 2%.Catena saw an increase in cost per acquisition due to the growth in the US, which involved mainly cost per acquisition deals. The business also noted that 82% of all revenue in Q3 was generated from locally regulated or taxed markets.In terms of overall operating expenses for the quarter, spending was up 12.7% year-on-year from €16.6m to €18.7m. Personnel costs were the main outgoing for Catena, with this rising 23.9% to €5.7m, primarily as a result of investment in the US market to support growth plans.Direct costs related to paid revenue were up 19.4% to €3.7m, due to more spend in pay-per-click (PPC) in the US market, while depreciation and amortisation costs were up 56.5% to €3.6m. However, other operating costs were down from €6.4m to €5.6m.Despite lower revenue and higher spending in Q3, profit before tax was up by 47.1% from €8.7m to €12.8m. This rise was primarily due to higher gains on financial liability, with this amounting to €6.8m, compared to just €750,000 in Q3 of last year.After paying €920,000 in taxes, profit after tax climbed from €8.1m to €11.9m. However, earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA) slipped 11% from €35.9m to €32.0m, while adjusted EBITDA excluding non-recurring costs also down 15% to €32.2m.“After three consecutive quarters of decline, I am happy to announce a trend shift in third-quarter revenues, which increased by 11% compared to the second quarter, making it the third-best quarter in the history of the company,” Catena’s chief executive Per Hellberg said.“Major growth came from the United States, now representing 17% of our total revenues year to date. Strong performance from our core product AskGamblers and Japan also contributed positively to this quarter’s development.“The European Casino segment, which has been in decline since the third quarter last year, levelled out this quarter and several products started to show positive growth in traffic and revenues.”Looking ahead to Q4 and beyond, Hellberg added: “With growth supported by our products in the United States, AskGamblers and Japan, I’m confident that the efforts we have taken are pointing us towards a bright future. But first we need to close this year.“With the current momentum, the product improvements we have made, together with the market expansion, it looks promising for the fourth quarter.” Profit up at Catena Media despite revenue decline in Q3 Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter 18th November 2019 | By contenteditor AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Financecenter_img Tags: Online Gambling Affiliate giant Catena Media has reported a year-on-year increase in profit for the third quarter, despite also experiencing a decline in revenue during the period.

first_img Image source: Getty Images. Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Enter Your Email Address “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” 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. See all posts by Kevin Godbold Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge!center_img These stock market headlines caught my eye yesterday:“The DOW is now negative under Trump’s presidency”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…“US jobs market could face record damage, industries ask for aid”“DOW drops 1,500, S&P 500 down 6%, virus cases jump”And America’s Dow Jones Industrial Average did indeed lurch lower on Wednesday. It was last at these levels at the end of 2016. But the stock market won’t fall forever and I’m buying shares.Speculative stock market froth has blown awayI think it’s safe to say, much of the speculative froth is being blown from the American stock market in this down-move. And I hesitate to describe it as a bear market because those things go on and on. Indeed, this one may do that. But, right now, it feels like more of a violent shock than a bear market.The stock market can be quite a clever beast, which isn’t surprising when you consider it’s made up of all the individual investors and fund managers participating in it. That’s a lot of brainpower trying to predict the future.But the coronavirus pandemic has been a bit of a wildcard for the markets. As every day rolls into the next, it becomes ever more apparent that the actions governments are taking to try to control the outbreak will cause severe general economic damage. As will the effect of mass illness, even if it’s only for a few days in many individual cases.The forward-looking stock market is trying to predict the economic cost and how it will affect company profits. But, of course, there can be no precision in anyone’s assumptions.How markets can overshootBut markets tend to overshoot in both directions. That means raging bull markets can top out at ridiculous, nose-bleed valuations. And it means stampeding bear markets can plunge to levels way below the intrinsic value of companies and their businesses.On top of that, the overshoot effect can sometimes be exaggerated even more by a total disconnect between stock prices and the underlying fundamentals of a company. We saw that on the upside in the dot-com boom near the turn of the century. Maybe we’ll see it on the downside with the coronavirus-induced panic of 2020. It’s a possibility I’m bearing in mind and by no means a certainty.We could be in for a rough ride yet in the markets. But if we do see an overshoot to the downside, or even a turbo-charged over-shoot as I described above, it will likely correct.But I reckon, in the end, even after it corrects up a bit, the stock market will rebase lower than it was at the start of this panic. It’ll take real macroeconomic progress to prod the bull back into action. So I’d handle it now by holding on to my stocks and investments, and drip-feeding money gradually into high-quality shares, managed and tracker funds.I reckon the bounce-back from any overshoot will come, and the bull will gallop in again in the end.

first_imgiStock/Thinkstock(TOLEDO, Ohio) — The four Ohio teens who pleaded guilty to dropping a sandbag off a freeway overpass that killed a 22-year-old man were given a suspended sentence and ordered to a treatment center on Friday.Marquis Byrd was the passenger in a vehicle that was hit by the sandbag dropped onto Interstate 75 in Toledo last December. Byrd was left in critical condition and died three days later in the hospital.The four teens, all aged 13 or 14, pleaded guilty to either murder or manslaughter. The boy who dropped the sandbag pleaded guilty to murder while the other three pleaded to involuntary manslaughter, the Toledo Blade reported. The teen who pleaded guilty to murder was sentenced to the Department of Youth Services until he turns 21, while the teens who pleaded guilty to manslaughter were sentenced to three years in the Department of Youth Services.All four sentences were suspended by the judge in favor of being sent to Toledo’s Lucas County Youth Treatment Center.“It’s a treatment facility, for certain services, to provide so these boys change their behavior and can become productive members of our community,” Judge Denise Navarre Cubbon said.The decision to suspend the teens’ sentences and send them to the treatment facility drew outrage from Lillian Diallo, the Byrd family’s lawyer, who called the decision “outrageous.”“Suspended what? If you do what? So eight months you get to go home?” Diallo told Toledo ABC station WTVG outside the courtroom following the sentencing. “This child will never be at home. His son will never see him. His mother will never be able to say, ‘Hey son, how are you? How’s your day?’ Touch his face, see his face. This is outrageous.”There were 30 letters written on behalf of Byrd, asking for a strong punishment for the boys. The four convicted teens apologized in court to the victim’s family.“I pray for him and his family every single day and night and cannot imagine what they are going through and how they feel right now,” one of the boys said Friday, reading from a letter.The four teens initially pleaded not guilty to the charges of murder and vehicular vandalism, the Lucas County Prosecutor’s Office said.“Let me tell you something — at the age of 10 you know if you take something and put it in a moving lane of traffic, you should know what the consequence will be,” Diallo said. “You didn’t take the sandbag and throw it on the side. You took that sandbag and you threw it down there to that boy’s death.”Diallo, who knew Byrd, told ABC News in January that Byrd, a father to a 2-year-old boy, was planning a surprise proposal for his girlfriend, the mother of his child.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

first_imgScott Olson/Getty Images(CHICAGO) — Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx referred to Empire actor Jussie Smollett as a “washed up celeb who lied to cops,” according to newly revealed text messages.Foxx made the comment to her top deputy, Joseph Magats, on March 8, just as news surfaced that the actor had been indicted on 16 counts for allegedly lying to Chicago police about being attacked in a hate crime.  “Sooo……I’m recused, but when people accuse us of overcharging cases…16 counts on a class 4 (felony) becomes exhibit A,” Foxx texted Magats, according to documents released on Tuesday.She also compared the case against Smollett, 36, to her office’s sexual abuse case against embattled R&B singer R. Kelly, to whom she referred as a “pedophile.”“Pedophile with 4 victims 10 counts. Washed up celeb who lied to cops, 16. On a case eligible for deferred prosecution I think it’s indicative of something we should be looking at generally,” Foxx wrote. “Just because we can charge something doesn’t mean we should. … it’s not who we want to be.”The Cook County State’s Attorney Office released the messages on Tuesday in response to a Freedom of Information Act request by media outlets including ABC News. The office released 178 pages of text messages and 3,655 pages of emails connected to the case, including communication among staffers and some of their interactions with the media.Some of the correspondence was redacted due to a court order sealing Smollett’s criminal case.The messages offer a glimpse into the state’s attorney’s private thoughts on a high-profile case from which she ultimately recused herself. The newly revealed correspondence between Foxx and her employees raises questions about the role she may have played in the case after said recusal.Her office declined to comment on the specifics of the case, citing an ongoing review.“As the case is currently under review, we are not in a position to comment on specificities related to this topic,” the office said in a statement Tuesday. “We look forward to the findings of the Cook County Independent Inspector General’s Office’s review of how we handled this case.”Foxx faced fierce backlash from the Chicago Police Department and Mayor Rahm Emanuel when her office announced it was dropping criminal charges against Smollett in an effort to focus its resources on violent crimes.Emanuel said dropping the charges against Smollett “is without a doubt a whitewash of justice.” And city officials sued the actor for $130,000 last week, seeking reimbursement for funds spent investigating what they called bogus hate crime allegations.The lawsuit laid out a detailed account of the allegations against Smollett, who told police he was attacked on Jan. 29 by two men who shouted homophobic slurs at him, wrapped a noose around his neck and poured an unknown liquid on him. The timeline includes a 41-point, blow-by-blow description, from when Smollett first met the Osundario brothers — the purported attackers — in the fall of 2017 until the final allegation that Smollett continued to be in contact with the brothers days after the alleged attack.A lawyer for Smollett, who portrays a gay musician on Fox’s Empire, said the actor “vehemently denies” accusations of making false statements to police and “will not be intimidated into paying the demanded sum.”Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.
