Bragg names new CFO as Q3 net loss narrows

first_img Tags: Mobile Online Gambling Slot Machines Topics: Casino & games Finance Strategy Slots AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter 12th November 2019 | By contenteditor Bragg Gaming Group has reported revenue of CAD$10.0m for the third quarter of 2019, while starting tomorrow, the business will have a new finance chief as bwin.party veteran Stephen Prowse takes over the role from Ashkay Kumar. Bragg Gaming Group has reported revenue of CAD$10.0m (£5.9m/€6.9m/US$7.6m) for the third quarter of 2019, while starting tomorrow (November 13), the business will have a new finance chief as bwin.party veteran Stephen Prowse takes over the role from Ashkay Kumar.Revenue for the three months to 30 September would have come in at $10.6m, were it not for the online media division, comprising the GiveMeSport (GMS) assets, being listed as a discontinued operation.Following the publication of Bragg’s first half results in August, it announced that it had initiated a strategic review of the division, with a view to selling it off in order to focus on B2B gaming.This strategic review is expected to be completed in the first quarter of 2020, and in the interim, Bragg said, it would continue to enhance the offering. This has seen the GMS site relaunched in July, which resulted in a 46% increase in site visitors in October, to 23.3m.The B2B gaming division, meanwhile, generated revenue of $10.0m, of which $1.8m came from the US market, with a further $8.2m coming from European markets, excluding the UK. While Bragg did not provide year-on-year comparisons, chief executive Dominic Mansour noted that Oryx’s revenue was up 30% from Q3 2018.Revenue-related costs came in at $5.7m in Q3, leaving a gross profit of $4.3m for the quarter. After general and administrative expenses of $4.2m, and sales and marketing outgoings of $220,832, Bragg posted an operating loss of $117,479 for the period.After income tax, and factoring in a $129,507 loss from GMS, plus a $12,260 foreign exchange gain, Bragg’s net loss for the quarter stood at $316,513 – a marked improvement on the $11.3m loss reported for Q3 2018.“I am extremely pleased with the company’s progression over the past quarter,” Mansour said. “We’ve proven that, with our modern technology and seamless integration process, we are able to expand our operator base at a significantly faster rate than the competition.“I am particularly pleased that the strong momentum of operator launches experienced in the first half of the year continued into Q3 with the successful launch of 10 new operators,” he continued. “We expect this momentum to further accelerate throughout Q4 with more than 14 launches in the pipeline.”Following the end of the quarter, Bragg agreed a partnership with sportsbook technology provider Kambi Group to provide casino services and player account management solution to operators, initially focusing on the US.The partners have already struck a deal with New York’s Seneca Gaming Corporation, a tribal operator with three casinos in the state. This will see Bragg and Kambi provide a combination of products and services to the business.Mansour described the partnership, and the Seneca deal, as “huge stepping stones” for Bragg as it looked to expand its international reach. “Our strategic focus in the US is to partner with tier-1 casinos and operators,” he explained. “I believe that this Seneca deal will be the first of many in the coming years, particularly as the legal landscape continues to mature.”From tomorrow, the company will have a new finance director, with Ashkay Kumar stepping down for personal reasons.“I would like to thank Akshay for his hard work and contributions to Bragg,” Mansour said. “Our team wishes him all the best for the future.”Kumar’s replacement, Stephen Prowse, previously served as group finance director for PartyGaming, and continued in the same position following its merger with bwin in 2011.During his time with PartyGaming, Bragg said, Prowse was “instrumental” in the acquisition of Foxy Bingo and the €2.1bn bwin merger. Mansour noted that his M&A expertise would be “extremely valuable” to the business.Prowse added: “I am delighted to join Bragg at such an early and exciting point in its growth trajectory.  Bragg has market-leading technology, products and people. “As such, I see enormous potential for this business and am very much looking forward to being a part of that growth.”center_img Regions: US New York Email Address Bragg names new CFO as Q3 net loss narrows Casino & games Subscribe to the iGaming newsletterlast_img read more

British Airways parent company IAG (LSE: IAG) saw its share price lose altitude rapidly last year, before recovering partially. Vaccines could open up demand for air traffic again, boosting the IAG share price. However, for now I won’t be buckling in for the ride. While the IAG share price may look like a bargain, the uncertainty in its business prospects for 2021 makes it unattractive to me.More rough skies aheadThe aviation sector in general is taking its time to recover from the impact of the pandemic. The second wave of lockdowns has stunted the initial traffic recovery seen over the summer for many airlines. That is not specific to IAG, but it is set to continue making it hard for the sprawling airline group to recover any time soon.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…Ryanair announced that it would cut most and maybe all flights from the British Isles until travel restrictions are lifted. Wizz Air only flew 20% as many passengers last month as it did the year before.The IAG share price reflects this difficult trading environment. It hasn’t updated on demand as recently, but passenger revenue in the third quarter fell by over 70%. IAG does have some cargo revenue to fall back on, but it isn’t enough to offset the losses in its passenger operations.The IAG share price reflects uncertaintyBritish Airways has secured a five-year loan guarantee backed by the UK government, for a handy £2bn. That helps strengthen the balance sheet, so cash outflow is less of an immediate concern for investors. But one of the conditions restricts dividend payments the airline makes to IAG. Technically that doesn’t mean IAG can’t pay out dividends. But with no dividends from its golden goose British Airways, and the political need to show restraint, I think this means IAG won’t pay dividends for the next year or two at least.Dividends aren’t the only way for investors to make money. Capital gains can also mean an investment grows. IAG has more than doubled from its lows on anticipation of recovery. But it still trades well below where it sat before the pandemic – adjusted for a rights issue – so value investors may see an opportunity.However, I think there are too many unknowns clouding the airline’s prospects to feel confident about any share price movement. We don’t know when passenger numbers will get even close to normal again. We don’t know what impact the lockdowns will have had on travel patterns. While some people may be desperate to fly again, a lot of people have discovered leisure opportunities closer to home and may never step foot on an aeroplane again. Meanwhile, the full impact of Brexit on British Airways and fellow IAG company Aer Lingus remains to be seen. See all posts by Christopher Ruanelast_img read more

(Even its operating margins are rising every year!)Quite simply, we believe it’s a fantastic Foolish growth pick.What’s more, it deserves your attention today.So please don’t wait another moment. UK share markets moved lower on Thursday as concerns over interest rate hikes gathered pace. The FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 are down around 0.5% after the US Federal Reserve signalled earlier-than-expected rate rises. The Record (LSE: REC) share price has fared even worse however, following the release of full-year financials.The currency and derivatives manager has struggled for momentum after closing at its most expensive for more than a decade in early May, at 95p per share. And a chilly reception to today’s trading statement has sent the Record share price to 86.5p per share, down 6% on the day.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…It’s worth remembering though that Record is still up around 140% over the past 12 months. Does this represent a great dip buying opportunity for UK share investors like me?Record records record AUMERecord’s share price has slipped after the business announced a meaty fall in full-year profits. For the 12 months to March, profit before tax clocked in at £6.2m. This was down 20% year-on-year.The company’s revenues dropped fractionally in financial 2021, to £25.4m from £25.6m previously. Management fees increased 8% year-on-year to £24.9m. But gains here were more or less wiped out by a sharp drop in performance fees. For the full year, these slumped to £100,000 from £1.8m in fiscal 2020.Last year was far from a washout for Record however. Assets under management equivalents (or AUME) hit all-time highs of $80.1bn in fiscal 2021, up 37% from the prior 12-month period. This included net inflows of $9.7bn, soaring from $4.6bn previously.Record paid a 2.3p per share dividend for the full year, unchanged from the previous 12 months. However it paid a special dividend of 0.45p, up from 0.41p in financial 2020.Time to buy the UK share?Looking ahead, chairman Neil Record said: “We start the year on our highest ever level of AUME, which is more diversified across our higher-margin products and provides us with an excellent platform for growth in financial 2022.”Record noted that the company has been developing products in collaboration with its clients, one of which — the Record EM Sustainable Finance Fund — is set for launch later in June.He also said: “The group continues to be self-financing, cash-generative and completely independent with no external debt,” adding that “the board remains confident that its change in strategic direction is the correct way forward for the long-term growth and success of the business.”These changes include a greater emphasis on product diversification and modernising its IT infrastructure.City analysts believe Record will bounce back into earnings growth in financial 2022. A 63% bottom-line rise is currently forecast, leaving the business trading on a forward price-to-earnings growth (PEG) ratio of 0.3.It’s true that Record faces significant competitive and regulatory pressures that cloud its long-term earnings outlook. Still, I think its recent change of direction — allied with Record’s dirt-cheap share price — make the business an attractive stock to buy today.last_img read more

HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series: Las Vegas Sevens Day one

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS WHO’S FASTER THAN YOU? 11.16 seconds for an actual length of the field try for @speedstick11! #USA7s @usainbolthttps://t.co/cTyv8t5lIo— World Rugby Sevens (@WorldRugby7s) March 5, 2016The other try to grab some headlines was that of Springboks legend Bryan Habana. The HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series is now in Las Vegas, where fans have been spoilt already in one day out of three. There have been two pool games so far – with day two hosting one more pool match for all, and then the quarter-finals – and we’ve already seen a few intriguing results thrown up.Samoa defeated last season’s series champions Fiji, who have struggled with a bug doing the rounds in the squad, pipping them 28-24. England, meanwhile, drew with Japan 19-19 and then lost to Scotland, 24-14. Indeed it was a day for draws, as hosts USA drew with Canada 26-26.However, a lot of the headlines from day one will have been taken up by stand-out tries.The first one to be aware of is this “coast-to-coast” score from Eagles flying machine Perry Baker. The man known as ‘Speed Stick’ went from one in-goal are to the other to take a magnificent try against North American rivals Canada. It is clear to see that the veteran winger is enjoying his bow at the Las Vegas Sevens, playing for the abbreviated side for the first time. Day 1 done & dusted. Honoured to be a part of this band of brothers #TodayIsAGift #Blessed #USA7s pic.twitter.com/CeKdsNr7Fx— Bryan Habana (@BryanHabana) March 5, 2016And he is not the only Toulon Test star to be taking his first steps on a sevens field. Wallaby fly-half Quade Cooper had a trot around for Australia, who, like South Africa are two from two. He is enjoying himself, he says, but added on later in the day: “If you find a set of lungs at ‪Sam Boyd Stadium they are mine…” — World Rugby Sevens (@WorldRugby7s) March 5, 2016Keep up with @WorldRugby7s for all the latest action from the HSBC Sevens Series FIRST IMPRESSIONS: @QuadeCooper on his first time playing #Rugby7s #USA7s pic.twitter.com/w064XuhU3xlast_img read more

Capt. Richard Mayabi, told ACNS that they plan to achieve the goal through a program called Heal Africa. Said to be holistic it ensures each church offers “healing through health care education, access to justice and leveraging wealth creation.”“HEAL – which stands for Health, Education, Access to Justice and Leveraging wealth creation – was launched with a view to re-branding and empowering Church Army both at the training level and grassroots level to re-engineer the church to become a beacon of hope for the African people,” said Mayabi.Since its establishment in 2009, Church Army Africa has persuaded more than 12,000 clergy and evangelists to consider HEAL as a model for mission. “We have seen a number of HEAL Africa projects initiated such as nursery schools, clinics, village micro-finance programs, peace and reconciliation initiatives and, above all, 350 new churches planted across the continent.”“The overall goal of this program is to promote church planting movements and also the sending of African missionaries to Africa and beyond. We have initiated church planting on the street with hawkers and touts who are even undergoing a course and exploring Christianity.The program has become so popular on the continent such that the Church of the Province of the Indian Ocean has agreed also to adopt the Church Army training.“The HEAL Africa vision was spawned by the 2007 post-elections in Kenya where Church Army seriously questioned the impact of Christian discipleship on its members on one hand and the training of church ministers on the other,” explained Mayabi.“Two things stood out. Firstly, it was Christians who went about killing each other, even those who belonged to the same church. Secondly, the entire church leadership in Kenya became tribal supporting their tribal leaders at the cost of standing for truth and preaching love, and we observed that what was happening in Kenya was a common trend in the whole of Africa. ““We want to use this program as a vehicle to mobilize the church towards creating transformation in Africa and, so far, this is being realized but the challenge is how to grow this vision to the whole of Africa.”He said that their dream is to see the whole of Africa evangelized through the recruiting of students from every African country to train at Church Army and “carry this fire back home.”“Currently, we have students from twelve countries in Africa and soon more are are coming on board.”Mayabi explained that Church Army Africa is also setting up a radio station as a platform for addressing emerging issues in communities in Africa, and to allow church leaders to speak hope to people in their countries.The original Church Army was started in 1882 by a tough London businessman, Wilson Carlile, who was “transformed by Christ and resolving to share the love of Christ with both the rich and the poor.”More than 130 years on, and Church Army Africa are asking for the support and prayers of Christians around the world to achieve the dream of a transformed Africa.

150 charities sign up to online charity Christmas card service

first_img150 charities sign up to online charity Christmas card service Jax Devonshire, development manager at West Suffolk Mind, believes Studio51 will open up a new opportunity to fundraise online for smaller charities such as hers. “I like the idea of Christmas cards for our supporters,” she said, “but I don’t like the idea of having to buy the cards up front, store them, sell them ourselves, and incur the costs for all of this. We are a charity, not a shop front.“This way we can still provide cards for our donors but we are not tied into up-front stock and neither are we left with cards that we can’t sell, which look more and more tired as years go buy.”She was optimistic that online Christmas cards could expand local charities’ reach to potential supporters nationwide.Charities signing up to the Studio51 scheme are provided with their own landing page on the Studio51 website. Charities are then responsible for directing their own donors to the site. West Suffolk Mind, for example, is putting information about Studio51 on its own website, on the home page and the affinity partners links page, as well as running an article in the printed donor newsletter.Studio51’s founder Alan Hawkes, a former vice-president of the Greetings Card Association, was very pleased with the response to his new venture at its launch at the Institute of Fundraising’s National Convention.“We’ve already got 157 sign-ups and applications are coming in at the rate of 10 a day. Now that our website is live, we’re expecting the number of partner charities to really take off.”The company pays 51% of the sale price into a protected trust account, so the money is not held by Studio51. The trust account pays accrued income to the charity every three months. By the time that new online charity Christmas card venture Studio51 launched its website this month, over 150 charities had signed up to use its service, which donates 51% of the sale price to charities.The service has attracted both national charities like Marie Curie Cancer Care, Macmillan Cancer Support, and the Civil Service Benevolent Fund, and local charities such as Kent Scout Council and West Suffolk Mind.In addition to these charities, users can also search Studio51’s database for any one of 4,500 registered charities (from information supplied by online charity database GuideStar UK) or nominate their own charity to receive funds.

Electrical Workers BDS solidarity upheld

first_imgLast August the United Electrical Workers took a brave stand for international solidarity at their national convention by adopting a resolution endorsing the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions Movement to pressure Israel to end the occupation of Palestine and negotiate a peace agreement.Last October the Israeli law firm Shurat Hadin filed a charge with the National Labor Relations Board claiming that the resolution violated U.S. labor law against “secondary boycotts.” The union countered the charge as a violation of its First Amendment rights.On Jan. 12, the NLRB dismissed the charge, but Shurat Hadin appealed. On May 26 the appeal was denied.In a press release issued July 23, UE National President Peter Knowlton said the union, the first in the U.S. to join the BDS movement, welcomed the labor board’s decision. He noted in the past UE had “withstood attempts by the U.S. government to silence us during the McCarthy era in the 1950s” and was “unbowed by the latest attempt … to stifle our call for justice for Palestinian and Israeli workers.”Knowlton added, “The NLRB’s decision is a victory for the growing BDS movement across the U.S., which faces increasing political attempts to silence and intimidate critics of the Israeli government. As Americans who have a constitutional right to criticize our own government, we certainly have a right to criticize and, if we choose, boycott a foreign government that is heavily subsidized by U.S. taxpayers.” (UEunion.org, July 23)FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
