Better Collective posts growth despite Covid-19 impact in Q1

first_img15th May 2020 | By contenteditor Topics: Finance Marketing & affiliates Sports betting Affiliate marketing giant Better Collective has reported a year-on-year increase in revenue and profit for the first quarter, despite growth slowing towards the end of the period due to the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic. Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Affiliate marketing giant Better Collective has reported a year-on-year increase in revenue and profit for the first quarter, despite growth slowing towards the end of the period due to the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.Revenue for the three months to 31 March totalled €20.9m (£18.5m/$22.6m), up 40.3% from €14.9m in the same period in 2019 and higher than the group had initially anticipated.Better Collective put this increase primarily down to strong sports win margins and high activity, up until when sports events worldwide were cancelled or suspended in mid-March due to the Covid-19, which in turn stunted further growth.The outbreak also meant the number of new depositing customers remained level year-on-year at 116,000, with Better Collective saying the reduction in sporting activity in the latter part of March deterred players from signing up.In terms of spending during the quarter, total costs excluding special items and amortisations amounted to €12.3m, an increase of 46.4% from €8.4m last year. Staffing costs were the main outgoing in Q1, with total spend up 59.5% to €6.7m, as the average number of employees increased from 268 to 416.Direct cost relating to revenue also jumped 42.1% year-on-year to €2.7m, while other external spending was up 9.9% to €2.4m. Depreciation and amortisation costs increased by 50.5% to €2.1m, with this mainly attributable to acquisitions.Better Collective also noted €1.6m in amortisation costs and €401,000 in special items spend during the period.However, despite the rise in spending, such was the impact of revenue growth in Q1 that operating profit was up 26.9% from €5.2m in 2019 to €6.6m this year.After accounting for an additional €675,000 in financial income and €897,000 in financial expenses, profit before tax stood at €6.4m, up by 30.6% year-on-year. Better Collective paid €1.7m in taxes, leaving it with €4.7m in profit for Q1, up 27.0% from €4.7m last year.Reflecting on the results, chief executive Jesper Søgaard said growth in Q1 was strong compared to the same quarter last year, despite the impact of the coronavirus outbreak.“Despite the lack of major sports events during the second half of March, the quarterly performance was highly satisfactory,” he said. “During the second half of March, sports betting activity was reduced to approximately half of normal levels while esports and casino activities performed stronger than usual.”Søgaard also noted how Better Collective has taken a number of actions to help mitigate the impact of coronavirus in Q2 and beyond. Last month, the group said its financial targets remains despite the outbreak and had rolled out a series of measures to support these aims.A new cost saving program has been in effect since 1 April comprising more than 50 individual initiatives, including making over 50 employees redundant or having their salaries partly or fully covered by government support programmes.Better Collective’s board of directors and founder management have also agreed to waive their fees and salary in Q2, while management and all staff will reduce their salaries for Q2, in combination with national compensation programmes. In addition, both variable and fixed costs will be temporarily reduced through cost avoidance or price reduction measures.“The situation calls for flexibility and we have redistributed resources internally to focus on business areas that have remained active,” Søgaard said.“We expect low sports activity throughout most of Q2, though some of the major European sports leagues may resume without physical spectators sometime in the quarter, like the German Bundesliga confirmed to start on May 16, 2020.“Our Q2 performance is likely to be the exception in an otherwise strong growth story. However, we expect high activity during the second half of 2020.”center_img Finance Tags: Online Gambling Better Collective posts growth despite Covid-19 impact in Q1 Email Addresslast_img read more

Six Nations 2010 Highlights Montage

first_imgMonday Mar 29, 2010 Six Nations 2010 Highlights Montage It’s been over a week since the 2010 RBS Six Nations came to an end in Paris with France taking the Grand Slam. Many of you felt there should be some kind of compilation montage to relive the action, so here it is.As it got off to a less than spectacular start, this years Championship later hit it’s stride as we saw a handful of great matches and one or two spectacular upsets. At times it was edge of your seat stuff, no more so than when Wales scored in the dying seconds to upset Scotland.The theme of the tournament though was if Ireland, reigning champions from last year, could do enough to retain their title as bookies favourites France looked to be the stronger side.In the end, the predictions were correct as France beat all before them and went on to lift the trophy in Paris, having won the tournament before their final game even kicked off.So here’s your chance to look back on what was an entertaining, and at times dramatic, few weeks of Six Nations rugby. Please let us know your thoughts on the video. Rugbydump covered every match from the tournament within days of them being played.

It is a simple volume, monochrome, with smooth front, and sharp edges. In the light, the slate cladding reacts to the changing skies of Normandy, and settles the house in its landscape. Nearby façades from the Port of Honfleur are then brought to mind.Inside, one discovers a hollow volume, free from frame until the roof. A series of load-bearing walls, made of wooden panels, carve the space. Openings, cut in their thickness, create ways, frame interior views or invite the nearby landscape in. By using the effects of superimpositions and gaps, these picture windows give a kaleidoscopic vision of the home and its inhabitants. In the middle of the plan, the living-room extends with a terrace, which benefits the shade from a big cherry tree. Glass partitions of large dimensions join the two spaces together , and insure solar supply. On the roof, a series of reflective conduits, complement the light supply from the North side. The longitudinal organisation of the house, highlighting the load-bearing walls, allows  a transversal management of the luminescence, allowing the home to find it’s place within the cycle of days and seasons Save this picture!© Daniel MoulinetEnvironmental approach:The intermittent use of the house, built as a holiday home, strongly influenced the environmental choices of the project. The challenge was here to give priority to passive devices and architecture, offering a gain in terms of energy performance, but also for the comfort of the occupants.The exposure has been a main priority : East-West orientation, oversized opening to the South, natural shades and solar control strategy, North side blind. Great attention has been given to thermal insulation. Choosing wood slab, and a wood panelling structure insulated from the outside, has allowed us to obtain good levels of insulation and air tightness. Furthermore, the low-thermal-mass building, offered by the wooden structure is interesting in the context of a weekend home, that needs to heat up quickly, for short periods. A wood stove thus is sufficient to heat the home.Finally, the building is based on the dry process framework, with the benefits of prefabrication : quality building, swift assembly, and site protection. Save this picture!© Daniel MoulinetTechnical description:The structure uses wooden slabs, stacked on top of each other in order to create the three levels of the ground floor, following the slope of the land. These floors rest on shallow foundations, which insure ventilation from below, and does not impede the draining of rainwater. Above these floors, the whole structure was made in solid wood panels, that entirely cover the 12 meter length of the house. The load-bearing walls were made in two pieces, with a median joint. All the left over pieces of woods were used, as doors, steps, or fixed furniture. In order to highlight the structure, and to allow the passage of utilities, the side walls and the roof ceilings were plastered, unlike the load-bearing walls that show both their wooden sides. This arrangement required coring in the panels for the electrical distribution. Save this picture!PlanOutside, in order to obtain a more direct expression of the original plan, the cladding required specific implementations : flush windows, drip profile and  details on the roof were adapted. The extensive use of slate with a continuous layout, matches up criteria of durability, aesthetic, and a desire to remain anchored to local building traditions.Project gallerySee allShow lessCincinnati Live/Make Competition ResultsCompetition ResultsFocal Point Community Campus Proposal / HDR ArchitectureUnbuilt Project Share Architects: Lode Architecture Area Area of this architecture project ArchDaily G house / Lode ArchitectureSave this projectSaveG house / Lode Architecture G house / Lode Architecture 2011 Houses Photographs Area:  100 m² Area:  100 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project CopyHouses•Normandy, France ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/337459/g-house-lode-architecture Clipboard Year: last_img read more

16 fundraising insights from Amanda Palmer at #IFC2016

first_img5. What people want is to be seen Singer songwriter and successful crowdfunder Amanda Palmer delivered the opening plenary at the International Fundraising Congress. In under an hour she shared a string of insights and ideas about asking for money, based on her experience as an artist and performer.She is not a professional fundraiser, and apparently took some persuading before agreeing to present in front of an international audience of professional fundraisers.But her experience and insight into making connections with people and asking them for money or help, showed she was a worth plenary speaker at the event. And of course she has form: she was the first artist to raise more than $1m on crowdfunding site Kickstarter.  Palmer said that she was often asked what her trick was in raising $1m in 24 hours. The trick is – there is no trick. It’s a long-term approach of give and take, as explained by Rainier Spruit on 101fundraising.“You can’t go about crowdfunding if you don’t already have a crowd to raise funds from. People asked me what my trick was? The answer is, there was no trick. A relationship is never a trick, that’s why it’s a real relationship and real relationships can withstand an incredible amount of asking”. 1. Be a street performer 12.

Soñando en Miami

first_imgEntre 1993 y 2013 Alarcón fue Presidente de la Asamblea Nacional del Poder Popular de Cuba. Este artículo fue publicado el 19 de abril al sitio poresto.net.Luego de tres meses de amagos y amenazas y en un escenario doble -el Departamento de Estado en Washington DC y un teatro de Miami- finalmente la Administración yanqui anunció lo que se propone hacer para intensificar su guerra económica contra Cuba.El día 17, a media mañana en breve ceremonia, apenas unos minutos, en la capital, el Secretario de Estado Mike Pompeo hizo saber que aplicarán completamente el Título III de la Ley Helms-Burton. No ofreció mayores explicaciones aunque sí dijo que a partir del dos de mayo los “cubanoamericanos” podrán actuar ante los tribunales de Estados Unidos contra quienes utilicen de algún modo las propiedades que, alegan, fueron suyas o de sus familias.No hubo preguntas ni fue entregado algún texto que respondiese a las interrogantes que semejante decisión debía provocar entre quienes recuerden que durante veintitrés años –Clinton, W. Bush, Obama y el propio Trump– habían adoptado una posición contraria a lo que ahora se anuncia.Se produjeron inmediatamente declaraciones oficiales de España, Canadá, México y de las autoridades de la Unión Europea que, además de protestar advirtieron que adoptarán las medidas que sean necesarias para neutralizar cualquier intento de dañar sus legítimos intereses y recordaron que están en capacidad de hacerlo tomando en cuenta que no son pocas las inversiones norteamericanas en sus países.El espectáculo más notorio fue reservado para Miami y John Bolton, Asesor Nacional de Seguridad, desempeñó la función principal. Su auditorio eran los integrantes de lo que queda de quienes fueron parte de la Brigada 2506, o sea, los restos del grupo invasor que 58 años atrás fue derrotado por el pueblo cubano en 66 horas.Bolton repitió lo antes dicho por Pompeo respecto a las demandas judiciales y anunció asimismo la reimposición de severas restricciones a los viajes de los cubanoamericanos a su país de origen y a las remesas que envían a sus familiares en la isla, medidas estas que antes aplicó W. Bush y generaron el rechazo de la inmensa mayoría de esa comunidad lo cual ha sido reflejado desde entonces en las elecciones del Condado Miami-Dade.El show miamense fue tan patético como grotesco.Los viejos y cansados veteranos fracasaron cuando eran jóvenes, y organizados por la CIA y con el apoyo de las fuerzas armadas yanquis fueron a Cuba a recuperar “sus” latifundios, “sus” fábricas y “sus” mansiones. Ahora Bolton les promete que, finalmente, la quimera será realidad.El espectáculo lo resumió Nicolás Gutierrez Castaño: “Ni en nuestros sueños más febriles pudimos concebir que un gobierno de Estados Unidos lo haría. Ninguno lo hizo nunca. Olvídense de Reagan. Olvídense de Bush”.Emocionado, el habilidoso abogado gestor de la Helms-Burton, cree llegado el momento de “recuperar” las cuantiosas propiedades que robó su bisabuelo.Soñador desaforado, Bolton, por su parte, invitó a hacer un brindis por la Doctrina Monroe que, según él, está viva y saludable.Embriagados, “celebrando” su fulminante derrota, los invitados al extraño banquete, lo aplaudieron con delirio.Es hora de hacerlos despertar.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Security agency raids Shabelle Media Network again, two held

first_img RSF requests urgent adoption of moratorium on arrests of journalists RSF_en Follow the news on Somalia SomaliaAfrica January 8, 2021 Find out more Reporters Without Borders condemns the latest raid by Somalia’s National Security and Intelligence Agency (NISA) on Radio Shabelle and Sky FM, two Mogadishu-based radio stations owned by Shabelle Media Network. Both stations have again been closed and two of their journalists are still being held.The NISA’s third raid on the stations in the space of 18 months was carried out on 3 April by five heavily-armed teams that stormed Shabelle Media Network’s headquarters, seized all of their broadcasting equipment and arrested a total of 25 people, including 23 journalists and media workers.Most were released after being questioned but Radio Shabelle director Mohamed Muse and editor-in-chief Ahmed Abdi Hassan are still being held and the NISA is actively looking for Shabelle Media Network president Abdimalik Yusuf.Radio Shabelle broadcast a recording by Sheikh Ali Dheere, the spokesman of the Islamist rebel group Al-Shabaab, claiming responsible for the 2 April massacre of students in Garissa University, in neighbouring Kenya.The NISA said this violated a verbal instruction it issued in September 2014 banning the broadcasting of Al-Shabaab statements – an instruction that was never confirmed by any written government order.“The Somali government’s harassment of Radio Shabelle’s personnel is turning this media outlet into a martyr of its censorship policies,” said Cléa Kahn-Sriber, the head of the Reporters Without Borders Africa desk.“We call for the immediate reopening of these two radio stations and the immediate release of Mohamed Muse and Ahmed Abdi Hassan, who just relayed information about a news development of particular interest to the Somali population. This is what journalists are supposed to do.”The NISA filed a complaint against Muse and Hassan with the prosecutor-general’s office on 6 April, requesting their detention for an initial 20 days. The prosecutor-general refused to accept the complaint until the two journalists appear before him and, on the face of it, does not seem to support their arrests, which were not carried out under any law.Radio Shabelle and Sky FM had only resumed broadcasting in mid-March after being closed since the last NISA raid on 15 August 2014, which resulted in the prolonged detention of several of their journalists.These two radio stations are unfortunately not the only media outlets being targeted by Somali authorities.Radio Goobjoog reporter Abdifatah Hassan Ahmed was arrested by police in Wadajir on 31 March and was held for seven days without any reason being given. His arrest was widely commented by fellow journalists as he is Somalia’s only blind journalist.In Berbera, in the breakaway northwestern territory of Somaliland, Kalsan TV correspondent Ahmed Said Mohamed was arrested on 1 April while doing a report on a financial dispute between the regional authorities and the port authorities. He was given an arbitrary seven-day sentence the next day and is still being held by the police.Somalia is ranked 172nd out of 180 countries in the 2015 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.
