Casino and US growth balance Catena’s European and sports headwinds in 2020 Looking just at the fourth quarter of the year, Catena made €26.6m in revenue, of which €23.7m came from organic search, €375,000 subscriptions and €2.6m paid search. This resulted in an operating profit of €38.5m, compared to a €5.7m operating loss in 2019. The affiliate’s operating expenses totalled €16.6m, down 69.2%, again due to the €32.1m impairment cost from 2019. Breaking this organic search figure down further, €68.2m came from casino, €23.5m sports and €4.2m financial services. After financial costs and taxes, Catena’s final profit was €7.7m, after having made a loss of €31.1m in 2019. This left a €10.0m operating profit, compared to a €27.3m operating loss in 2019.  Organic search brought in most of Catena’s revenue, at €95.9m, up 8.6%. However, results in Europe were less positive, including what Blomberg called “considerable headwinds” in Germany as the country introduced a new transition period for online casino. Catena paid €10.1m in direct costs related to revenue, down 25.9% while staff costs were up 2.4% to €23.6m, depreciation and amortisation costs declined 18.5% to €11.6m and other operating expenses were down 11.3% to €22.8m. The affiliate’s operating costs, meanwhile, declined by 38.8% to €67.5m. This drop in expenses was almost entirely due to the fact that in 2019, Catena incurred a €32.1m expense for the impairment of intangible assets Across all channels, casino revenue came to €69.6m, sports €30.6m and financial services €5.8m. Paid search revenue declined by 29.0% to €8.5m, and mostly came from sports betting, while subscription revenue was down 39.5% to €1.6m.

Blomberg added that the business experienced a very strong January, thanks in part to the opening of the Michigan and Virginia markets in the US. Revenue was up 58% year-on-year for the month. By gaming vertical, €16.0m of Catena’s revenue came from casino games, €9.3m sports and €11.4m financial services. Acting chief executive Göran Blomberg said declines in Catena’s sports segment with events suspended were outweighed by growth in casino. He added that much of Catena’s growth came from the US and Japan, while the affiliate’s flagship AskGamblers brand also experienced 23% growth. Direct costs of revenue made up €3.0m of these costs, personnel expenses €5.0m, depreciation and amortisation €2.4m and other operating expenses €6.8m. After paying €7.4m in interest costs and €13.2m in losses on businesses in which Catena holds equity. The business paid an additional €3.1m in other financial income. Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Affiliates Tags: Catena Media “Catena Media has a very strong market position and good momentum in most business areas. The transformation programme within our legacy business will increase efficiency and enable future revenue growth,” Blomberg said. “After a very good start to 2021, I have every reason to believe in positive developments for the entire year.” Last month, Catena announced that Michael Daly, currently head of its US business, would take over as chief executive on 1 March. Blomberg will then resume his position as chairman of the board. Affiliate group Catena media saw revenue grow 3.1% to €106.0m (£91.1m/$128.8m), as the impact of sports suspensions and declines in many European markets were balanced out by growth in igaming and new markets such as the US.last_img read more

first_img Enter Your Email Address I think these Warren Buffett tips can help you identify great businesses Click here to claim your free copy of this special investing report now! Warren Buffett is widely considered to be one of the greatest investors of all time. During his eight-decades-long investing career, the investor and businessman has built a considerable fortune in the stock market. And there’s a tremendous amount we can learn from him. His investing tips can help anyone identify great businesses to buy and hold for the long term. 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…Warren Buffett’s tips “Never invest in a business you cannot understand.” This is one of the billionaire’s best pieces of advice and it’s advice he follows himself. For a long time, he avoided technology companies. He’s changed his opinion on the sector recently, but he always said he wanted to avoid tech stocks because he didn’t understand the industry. Therefore, he didn’t know if he was buying a good business or a failing enterprise. He has had the same opinion about pharmaceutical companies.This could be a good tip for investors to follow. Buying something you don’t understand can be a fast way to lose money. If you don’t know what you are buying, you can’t be sure you’ll get a good return. That’s the method that’s helped Warren Buffett avoid big losses over the years. As such, by sticking to the businesses you understand, you too may be able to avoid taking significant losses.If you want to invest in a sector like tech, but don’t know where to start, buying an investment fund managed by experts could be a better option. Stay away from start-ups“We make no attempt to pick the few winners that will emerge from an ocean of unproven enterprises. We’re not smart enough to do that, and we know it.”Warren Buffett also stays away from start-ups. He knows that trying to find winners in booming sectors is very difficult, and there’s no guarantee of success. The investor has no edge in this market, and he knows it. So he’ll stay away.Instead, he prefers established, high-quality, highly profitable businesses. It may be best for other investors to follow suit.Quality is key“It’s far better to buy a wonderful company at a fair price than a fair company at a wonderful price.”The investing legend has built a fortune buying quality. This last point is vital for patient investors. Historically, high-quality companies with a definite competitive advantage have provided the best returns over the long term. These competitive advantages can be anything from a world-leading brand (Coca-Cola) to the profit margin benefits that come with size (Bunzl).Having an advantage makes it harder for peers to take market share from a business. It’s also easier for the company with a competitive advantage to grow and produce large profits for investors. These high-quality businesses are usually more expensive to buy than cheaper stocks. However, as Warren Buffett says above, it’s better to buy an excellent company at a fair price.  Markets around the world are reeling from the coronavirus pandemic…And with so many great companies trading at what look to be ‘discount-bin’ prices, now could be the time for savvy investors to snap up some potential bargains.But whether you’re a newbie investor or a seasoned pro, deciding which stocks to add to your shopping list can be daunting prospect during such unprecedented times.Fortunately, The Motley Fool is here to help: our UK Chief Investment Officer and his analyst team have short-listed five companies that they believe STILL boast significant long-term growth prospects despite the global lock-down…You see, here at The Motley Fool we don’t believe “over-trading” is the right path to financial freedom in retirement; instead, we advocate buying and holding (for AT LEAST three to five years) 15 or more quality companies, with shareholder-focused management teams at the helm.That’s why we’re sharing the names of all five of these companies in a special investing report that you can download today for FREE.

first_imgEducators and allies protest a ruling against school funding at the Arizona Supreme Court in Phoenix on Aug. 31.Arizona education workers are once again in motion, following a stunning, reactionary decision on Aug. 29 by the state’s corporate-backed Supreme Court to remove Proposition 207, the Invest in Education Act, from the November ballot. The initiative would have increased school funding by $690 million. The ruling cannot be appealed.Following the Arizona #RedForEd school workers’ strike in April and May, education employees initiated a petition campaign to collect the signatures required to get the proposal on the ballot for the upcoming general election.  They worked hard all summer and got 270,000 signatures, many more than the 151,000 legally required. The signatures were certified, and the measure was officially on the Nov. 6 ballot.State officials had promised education workers a pay raise, as well as money for school supplies, materials and support staff.  The funding would specifically be used to reduce the overcrowded class sizes in a state where a majority of the student population is Latinx, Indigenous and African-American. Smaller class sizes have been proven to create a more productive learning environment, especially important for oppressed youth.The Invest in Education Act would have imposed a progressive tax increase on wealthy Arizonans. However, the ballot measure was nixed as a result of intense pressure from a union-busting front group for the state’s Chamber of Commerce called Arizona for Great Schools and a Strong Economy.Both the state Supreme Court and the pro-business, anti-worker Chamber of Commerce have the blessings of the far-right Republican-led Legislature, as well as Gov. Doug Ducey. Ducey once served as the CEO of Cold Stone Creamery, notorious for paying its workers low wages. He also served as state treasurer under his openly racist predecessor, former Gov. Jan Brewer. Most notably, the fascistic former sheriff of Maricopa County in Arizona, Joe Arpaio, endorsed Ducey.Ducey and his legislative cronies did everything they could to defeat funding for public schools before, during and after the strike. Arizona is a haven of for-profit charter schools.  The state’s leaders would like to keep it that way.More school employee actions …Comments and posts flooded the Arizona Educators United (AEU) Facebook page on the evening of Aug. 29, calling for immediate action. Arizona Education Association (AEA) President Joe Thomas invoked words attributed to labor activist Joe Hill: “Don’t mourn.  Organize!” (An immigrant from Sweden and later organizer for the Industrial Workers of the World, Hill was executed by the state of Utah in 1915.)In the days after the state Supreme Court ruling, education workers rallied at the state capital in Phoenix.Thomas encouraged AEA members to wear red to school to show strength in numbers and express solidarity.  In the spring, education strikers had donned red in West Virginia and Oklahoma, while Arizona school employees created the #RedforEd movement.The National Education Association called on all its members to wear red at least one day a week, and declared Tuesday, Sept. 4, national #RedforEd day. On that day, thousands of education workers across the country wore red in solidarity with their Arizona colleagues.The next day, education workers and their supporters picketed the Chamber of Commerce in Phoenix for funding the legal challenge that got the #InvestinEd Act removed from the ballot. An action also took place in Tucson.… and more on the horizonThe wave of education worker walkouts has spread into the 2018-2019 school year. Thousands of education workers walked out on the first day of school in Washington state. Some 98 percent of teachers in Los Angeles, the majority of them African-American and Latinx, voted to authorize a strike for the first time in 30 years. While labor leaders are focusing on the November elections, promoting the pro-capitalist Democratic Party, rank-and-file education union members are weighing all options.Despite the state of Arizona’s broken promises to fund public schools,  educators are not giving up their struggle. In fact, the AEA and AEU are now using the phrase #StillInvestedInEducation. Arizona’s education workers are using the betrayal as a teachable moment to build the fightback.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

first_imgRead full article Previous Article Next Article So as most already know, this year Linkedin changed their InMail policy. Instead of getting back all the InMails that didn’t get a response, Linkedin now only credit back InMails that are replied to. They also implemented their new policy around a commercial search limit in which in any given month you can only run a limited amount of searches as beyond a certain number they deem that it is being used for commercial purposes. I’ve seen a number of posts for and against the changes and for what it’s worth, I say bring it on!Here’s why…Sometimes, just sometimes, I shudder when I see some of the activities that are being passed off as “recruiting”. In the last month I have received a number of batch messages that not only are not personalised to me, but have zero relevance to me at all. E.g. I’m an IT/software development sourcing specialist/recruiter and therefore, I have a few technologies listed on my profile. In the greater context of my profile, this is clearly in reference to positions I regularly find myself recruiting and not related to my personal IT experience, YET – I still get messages asking about my interest levels in an exciting and fantabulous open position as a Developer. I’m all for looking at ways to find efficiencies but sending a batch message to anyone with a specific technology(ies) listed on their profile (due to a standard keyword search) is just plain lazy and is certainly not what the vast majority of the recruitment world would identify as effective, solid recruitment/sourcing practice. To date, given the limited InMails available per month on different subscriptions, recruiters were almost incentivised to not be engaging in their InMails and just throw buzzwords in the hope of either a) Quickly engaging a professional who might be actively on the market; or b) being completely ignored, as opposed to opening up conversations with candidates who are not “active” but may be open to discussing other opportunities. If by LinkedIn changing its policies it encourages the careful  and more considered use of InMails as a tool of value and as the medium that could be used to open doors to new networks/candidates/business partners/leads, then I’m all for it and can only see it having a positive effect on the industry.Link to info on new InMail policy: http://sales.linkedin.com/blog/linkedin-changes-inmail-policy-to-improve-quality-of-messages-and-response-rates/On commercial search limits. I believe that the impact on this will be minimal to any recruiter who considers themselves to be somewhat social media savvy as most will be well versed in other online sourcing techniques and know e.g. know how to run x-ray searches via search engines, should they reach their search threshold. The knock-on effect of this is that recruiter who is perhaps not quite as used to other online search methods will have to begin to increase their knowledge of online sourcing methods which surely can only positively affect the recruitment industry?.Link to info on new “commercial use limit”: https://help.linkedin.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/52950/~/commercial-use-limit-on-search LinkedIn policy changes – Good, Bad or Ugly?Shared from missc on 20 Jan 2015 in Personnel Todaycenter_img Related posts:No related photos.

first_imgIn the 2016 referendum, Oxford voted to remain by 70%. The menu was picked up by a journalist from The Spectator, who wrote “perhaps unsurprisingly, Britain’s departure from the EU isn’t going down well in Oxford.” The sides continued the theme, offering “Human rights… peas” and “Free movement of people… mushy peas.” Mansfield College had a topical Brexit themed menu for lunch on the day the UK left the EU. A candlelit vigil was held in the city centre to say goodbye to the EU on Brexit Day. The menu is one of many examples of Oxford’s dismay at leaving the EU. The main courses included highlights such as “Where’s David Cameron now?… Squash and mixed bean casserole” and “Russia’s manipulation of Facebook data… Salted beef on bagels.” “We now have no choice but to make the best of the situation in which we find ourselves. “It is, perhaps, worth remembering that this University thrived long before we joined the EU and we will continue to thrive after our departure, however reluctantly we leave.” Entitled “We didn’t vote for it lunch”, the menu prefaced every menu item with a pro-EU comment. The Vice Chancellor of Oxford sent an email to all students on the day the UK left the EU saying: “Many of us hoped this day would never come but the majority of those who voted in the 2016 Referendum felt otherwise.last_img read more
