No IPO plans ‘at the moment’ for booming Cherry unit

first_img No IPO plans ‘at the moment’ for booming Cherry unit Topics: Finance Finance Tags: Online Gambling Cherry has played down the likelihood of an IPO for its Yggdrasil game development unit in the near future after the Swedish company’s online gaming brand, ComeOn, drove a 58% increase in group revenue to SEK899m (£77m/€86m/$98m) in the third quarter.Across the group, organic growth improved by 46%, helping to generate quarterly earnings before interest and deductions of SEK258m – a 130% increase.Marketing as a share of revenue dropped to a record low of 31%, even though the company spent more on activations in Q3 than ever before, according to executive chairman Morten Klein (pictured).Yggdrasil – which recently signed agreements with Paf and Veikkaus in Finland, and Svenska Spel and ATG in Sweden – posted a 62% rise in operating revenues to SEK71.5m and a 26% increase in earnings before tax to SEK19.3m.When asked directly in a conference call this (Wednesday) morning about the possibility of floating Yggdrasil, Klein said that there are currently “no plans”, although he added: “Potentially, yes – maybe in the future.”He added: “All companies have a high value by being part of Cherry at the moment, but at the same time, we know from history that we have companies that can stand alone.“Doing an IPO for a company takes a lot of focus. At the moment it’s good for the companies to have a focus on growth and being No.1 in their markets.“We’re looking at all companies in the portfolio to see if there will be that possibility [of flotation].“At the moment we have no plans on doing that and we think it creates higher shareholder value to keep it as it is.”Acting CEO Gunnar Lind added that Cherry’s game development units, Yggdrasil and Highlight Games, “had a good quarter”. Cherry acquired a majority stake in Highlight Games in August.He said: “The companies are run by strong entrepreneurs and skilled employees who understand what works in the market.”ComeOn, which applied for eight Swedish gaming licences in September ahead of the re-regulation of the market at the start of 2019, accounted for a whopping 81% of the group’s sales after posting a 63% rise in Q3 revenue from SEK448m to SEK732m.The mobile share of ComeOn’s net game win improved from 58% to 70%, with 83% of the online gaming brand’s revenues generated by casino games.“ComeOn has succeeded very well with the broad plan of action that was brought into effect just over a year ago,” Lind said. “All employees are making a tremendous effort and the company is now able to use more of its time and energy to establish even stronger positions in existing and new markets like in Poland, as well as with new brands such as Blitzino and PZBuk.”Just days ago, Cherry seized full control of affiliate company Game Lounge, which registered a 54% rise in revenue in the third quarter from SEK45m to SEK69m. 31st October 2018 | By contenteditor Executive chairman stresses benefits to shareholders of status quo Regions: Europe Nordics Sweden AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Email Addresslast_img read more

Kicking the coffee habit

first_imgGetting out of the officeWhen rushed off your feet or working to a dead line it’s incredibly tempting to grab lunch at your desk but this can in fact be counterproductive. Getting away from your desk and even better out of the office gives your mind a break helping you become all the more efficient and effective to handle the task in hand upon your return. Taking a ten minute stroll around the block might not excite the mind but it can increase the heart rate and get the blood pumping  to the brain. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS There are a number of caffeine replacements that claim to help us ditch the coffee habit and get us back on track to moderate rather than bucket load consumption. Derived from the native Brazilian herb Guarana it can be purchased and consumed in both tablet and liquid form and is said to replicate the caffeine kick. One tablet before breakfast or a few drops in water should have you cutting your coffee consumption without cutting your workload.Cold shower wake up callsA cold shower may be more closely associated with a boiler malfunction than a way to wake up feeling fresh and happy in the morning but there’s no denying the benefits of a cold water wake up. It may be hard to take the plunge into the ice water territory but it’s an age old trick to increasing energy levels helping you start the day refreshed and invigorated. Perhaps ironically, cold water showers have long been linked with helping strengthen immunity levels against colds and flu and may also be able to promote weight loss by increasing normal metabolism levels. What’s more to complement those sparkly whites you’ve got from drinking less coffee cold water can help keep skin and hair healthier – an all-around confidence boost!center_img FUNCTIONING WITHOUT the morning coffee hit may seem like a distant memory but is it really as difficult as it seems to feel human in the morning pre latte, cappuccino or double espresso?Whether it’s the taste or the energy boost that has us hooked there’s no denying we could all benefit from a little less coffee in our lives. It’s been reported that too much coffee can lead to a whole host of unpleasant side effects from the obvious sleeplessness to headaches and irritability not to mention the not so desirable tooth staining. However, experiment with a caffeine free, busy day at work and if you’re not snoring at your desk before noon you are likely to be caught by the claws of the post lunch lull.So if not coffee, what else can we do to give us an energy boost and help power us through the day?Caffeine replacementslast_img read more

The Anatomy of Fear Dr. Peralta: “Big things can grow from tiny seeds”From UCF TodayA UCF collaboration that provides free healthcare to uninsured farmworkers in Apopka has received an inaugural national award from the U.S. Public Health Service and Interprofessional Education Collaborative.The two organizations selected UCF as the recipient of their first Public Health Excellence in Interprofessional Education Collaboration Award that honors interdisciplinary healthcare teams that significantly impact the community they serve.Since last summer, students and faculty from UCF’s medical, nursing, physical therapy and social work schools and the University of Florida’s pharmacy school have worked together to provide free care in internal medicine, pediatrics, OB-GYN, dermatology, ophthalmology and occupational medicine. At each of the four clinics held so far, teams have treated 40 to 80 patients ranging from 2 months to more than 70 years in a makeshift clinic at the Farmworker Association of Florida office in Apopka.Dr. Heather Peralta, a UCF nursing faculty member who lives in Apopka, helped organize the interprofessional effort. “Watching all of the students work seamlessly together for the good of this under-served population is something that I will treasure as an instructor, as a nurse, and as an Apopkan,” she said. “Big things can grow from tiny seeds.”National officials said they selected UCF’s program because it exemplified excellence in teamwork to serve a medically underserved community. “Interprofessional health care practice is achievable and it works,” said Dr. Richard W. Valachovic, president of IPEC and president and CEO of the American Dental Education Association. “We applaud the students and faculty of the University of Central Florida… for showing that if we educate health professionals together, patients and the entire healthcare system benefit.”Dr. Heather Peralta (center): “We created a bond with the people of Apopka.”Dr. Judy Simms-Cendan, director of international experiences, and associate professor of obstetrics and gynecology at the College of Medicine helped organize the farmworker clinics after leading medical mission trips to the Dominican Republic for the last several years.“It was a great teaching opportunity and a really rich environment to learn in for all the students involved,” Dr. Simms-Cendan said of the Apopka effort.   “Students got to see, for example, how the social workers knew how to refer people for resources, learned how to do assessments, how to triage, and how to take vitals. You learn so much in a real environment like this where everyone is pitched in with the same goal of caring for people.”Jeannie Economos, the Farmworker Association’s pesticide safety, and environmental health project coordinator said the clinics helped farmworkers deal with chronic conditions like hypertension and diabetes and treat health issues related to their exposure to pesticides and other chemicals.“This award is indeed an honor to everyone who worked with such compassion and dedication to pull it all together to make the clinics happen and to build the partnership to bring this important service and benefit to the community,” she said.”Farmworkers and their families received medications dispensed by UF pharmacy students who worked to find the most effective, lowest-cost drugs for those with limited incomes. Dr. Erin St. Onge, UF’s assistant dean, and campus director, said she hopes the collaboration will be a model for others.“Receiving this award in its inaugural year makes the honor feel extra special,” she said. “We are excited to share our experiences with others so that this concept may be duplicated elsewhere as there are so many patients who don’t receive adequate health care in the U.S. for various reasons.”UCF project members will be recognized June 7 at the headquarters of the Association of American Medical Colleges in Washington, DC.To see a video story on the farmworkers clinic, please visit: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8eqDCI4ECWU Please enter your comment!last_img read more

Farm Equipment Dealers Learning to Serve Farmers in the Age of…

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News Farm Equipment Dealers Learning to Serve Farmers in the Age of COVID-19 Farm Equipment Dealers Learning to Serve Farmers in the Age of COVID-19 Facebook Twitter SHARE By Gary Truitt – Mar 30, 2020 Facebook Twitter SHARE Farm Equipment Dealers Learning to Serve Farmers in the Age of COVID-19With restrictions remaining in place for another month, farm equipment dealers are having to be creative as they work to serve farmers ahead of planting.  While the doors are locked and the showroom lights off, Bane Welker Equipment stores are still open for business. “We are open for business; we are answering the phones; we are taking orders for parts,” says Coy Patton, Complex Parts Director with Bane Welker. He says they are encouraging customers to use the phone or their online parts system to get what they need, “We are encouraging our customers to call into their store, talk to the parts team, get their lists together of things they need or even things they might need over the next few weeks.” BWE will then get the parts needed and place them in a drop box outside each store location.Patton, says they will still deliver to the farm, but staff will employ social distancing while there. BWE employees are also cleaning their store locations and even the parts before they send them out. He said so far their staff is in good health and most customers have been understanding of the need for the rather extreme measures.Mitch Frazier, CEO of Reynolds Farm Equipment, told HAT they have also closed their showrooms, “This has then the longest period the showrooms have been closed to the public in the firm’s 65 year history.”  Their parts and service departments are still operating and customers can call in for help with parts and service.Frazier admits doing business this way is a real challenge but necessary, “As a farm community, it is important that we all come together to help stop the spread of COVID-19 yet, at the same time, help farmers get prepared for this planting season. It is vital that we get this right.” Reynolds has imposed over 20 steps to maintain service to farmers while protecting their employees and the public.Other equipment dealers around the state contacted by HAT have reported similar actions being taken until the end of April. Farmers are encouraged to check with their local dealer for exact details and procedures.

Two imprisoned TV journalists consigned to oblivion in runup to elections

first_img Organisation March 15, 2005 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Two imprisoned TV journalists consigned to oblivion in runup to elections Reporters Without Borders voiced “great concern” today that, although general elections are due in exactly two months (on 15 May), two journalists with the Oromo-language service of the state-owned Ethiopian Television (ETV), Shiferraw Insermu and Dhabassa Wakjira, continue to be subjected to prolonged detention on suspicion of links with an Oromo separatist group. News Receive email alerts News RSF condemns NYT reporter’s unprecedented expulsion from Ethiopia News Journalist attacked, threatened in her Addis Ababa home RSF_en May 21, 2021 Find out more to go further February 10, 2021 Find out more Reporters Without Borders voiced “great concern” today that, although general elections are due in exactly two months (on 15 May), two journalists with the Oromo-language service of the state-owned Ethiopian Television (ETV), Shiferraw Insermu and Dhabassa Wakjira, continue to be subjected to prolonged detention on suspicion of links with an Oromo separatist group.”As Ethiopians get ready to vote, two journalists continue to languish in a prison where cases of torture and mistreatment are regularly reported by international organizations,” Reporters Without Borders said.”Ethiopia is violating the African Charter on Human and Peoples’ Rights just a few kilometres away from the Addis Ababa headquarters of the African Union,” the press freedom organization continued. “Whatever the charges against them, these two journalists have rights, and these have been clearly flouted by authorities who have defied the decisions of the federal high court. Insermu and Wakjira should have been released immediately under Ethiopian law. Reporters Without Borders added: “The circumstances in which they were thrown in prison leads us to suspect that there is absolutely no basis for the charge of terrorism that has been brought against them.”Insermu and Wakjira were initially arrested at home in Addis Ababa on 22 April 2004. The federal high court ordered their release on bail on 9 August but only Insermu was freed. He was re-arrested eight days later and released again on the federal high court’s orders in mid-October. As ETV refused to rehire him, he was seeking work as a journalist elsewhere when he was arrested for the third time on 11 January.Wakjira has meanwhile been held without interruption for nearly a year as the prison authorities ignored the various court orders to free him. According to the information obtained in Addis Ababa by Reporters Without Borders, both journalists were taken before a court on 2 March but the hearing was postponed. They are both currently held in the main Addis Ababa prison, known as Kerchiele.According to our information, they are charged under articles 32, 252 and 522 of the criminal code with passing government information to the leadership of the Oromo Liberation Front (OLF), planning attacks, criminal association of a terrorist nature and raising funds with a view to carrying out acts of terrorism. Insermu, in particular, is accused of sending government information to the OLF’s radio station Sagalee Bilisummaa Oromoo (the Voice of Oromo Liberation – SBO) “by e-mail or other means.”A former colleague now living in exile said Insermu and Wakjira were detained along with other Oromo employees of ETV who have since been released. Their arrests followed the broadcasting of a report about the use of violence by police to disperse an Oromo student demonstration on the Addis Ababa university campus on 4 January. The police arrested many demonstrators, especially members of the Macha Tulema social aid group who were protesting against the government’s decision to move Oromo regional bodies from Addis Ababa (called Finfinne by the Oromos) to Adama (also known as Nazret), 100 km east of the capital.Founded in 1974, the OLF is an armed movement that is opposed to Amhara and Tigrean dominance in Ethiopia and proposes that the Oromos of southern Ethiopia should form a separate country together with the Oromos of northern Kenya. The OLF is back by Eritrea, the former Ethiopian province where a guerrilla coalition waged an independence war against Addis Ababa from 1962 to 1991. Following Eritrean independence in 1993, the two countries fought a deadly territorial war from 1998 to 2000.Oromo community organizations and Oromo state employees are often the targets of government repression on the accusation of being OLF spies. The human rights report issued on 28 February by the US State Department, which has in the past tended to favour Ethiopia, was very critical of human rights violations “especially against persons suspected of being OLF members.”The difficulties encountered by Reporters Without Borders in obtaining information in Ethiopia about these two journalists indicate how sensitive the issue had become. After cross-checking, the organization has established that at least 12 Oromo journalists have fled to neighbouring countries since the start of 2004 to escape the repression in Ethiopia.Garuma Bekele, the managing editor of the weekly Urji, Tesfaye Deressa, its editor, and Solomon Nemera, one of its reporters, spent nearly four years in prison, from 1997 to 2001, for allegedly “participating in terrorist activities” and “publishing inaccurate news.” They had simply raised questions about an official statement that three men killed by the security forces were OLF members.

The additional victims include residents of Arcadia, Pasadena, Santa Monica, and West Covina in Los Angeles County, as well as Redlands and Ontario in San Bernardino County.Sheriff’s investigators have contacted many people whose identifications were found in the stolen property but who have not yet had the time to review the stolen property in person. Sheriff’s investigators are also still returning calls to the hundreds of people inquiring about their stolen property.Due to the overwhelming response from the public, investigators may be working to identify victims and return their property to them for months.Those who were burglarized after calling the Los Angeles to place a vacation stop on their paper delivery and have a police report detailing the stolen property are encouraged to call the Sheriff’s Major Crimes Bureau at (562) 946-7893.
