Swedish regulation slashes Svenska Spel profits in H1 Casino & games 19th July 2019 | By contenteditor Swedish state-owned gaming business Svenska Spel has seen profits hit by increased regulatory costs in the first half of the year, though the operator noted that customer growth and revenue had recovered during the second quarter.Revenue for the six months ended June 30, 2019 was down 4% year-on-year at SEK4.1bn (£349.1m/€389.4m/$437.0m), with Svenska Spel’s online division, Sport & Casino, the only one to post revenue growth in the period.Sport & Casino revenue rose to SEK1.0bn, up 5% from H1 2018, with growth driven by the new online casino and horse race betting products. Sports betting, on the other hand, saw net gaming revenue fall during the period.The lottery division Tur remained Svenska Spel’s main source of revenue, despite reporting a 3% drop to SEK2.2bn. Draw-based games performed strongly, reporting an SEK13m increase in revenue, which was offset by declines in instant win games.The land-based casino and gaming machine division Casino Cosmopol & Vegas saw revenue decline 14% to SEK849m. This was largely down to an SEK86m drop in the Vegas gaming machine revenue.“Svenska Spel’s operations have stabilized following the transition to the new gaming market and we see a recovery in customer growth and revenue,” the operator’s president and chief executive Patrik Hofbauer (pictured) said.“The customers we lost at the end of the year as a result of splitting the group into new divisions, and the transition to separate customer accounts for each have found their way back to us,” he explained. “We are pleased that customers choose Svenska Spel, because they appreciate our products, and because it is safe and secure to gamble with us.”While direct costs were down 9% at SEK595m, Svenska Spel paid a total of SEK783m in gaming taxes as a result of the opening of Sweden’s regulated igaming market. Once operating costs such as personnel expenses, depreciation and amortisation were stripped out, operating profit was down 50% at SEK1.1bn.After finance-related costs and corporate tax were removed, Svenska Spel’s net profit was SEK825m, down from SEK2.1bn in the prior year.For the second quarter of 2019, revenue was down 2% at SEK2.0bn. The operator paid SEK381m in Swedish gaming tax during the three months to June 30, 2019, with sales-related costs falling to SEK294m.After operating expenses, operating profit dropped 45% to SEK534m. Net profit after financial costs and tax came in at SEK417m, less than half the SEK973m reported in Q2 2018.Hofbauer said the second quarter had been “intensive” as a result of “vigorous” enforcement action from Swedish gambling regulator Spelinspektionen. However, he added, this was a positive development for Swedish consumers, as it was evidence of consumer protection standards in the market being raised.“As Sweden’s gaming company, our vision is that games should be for everyone’s entertainment,” he added. “This that while we will look to grow aggressively, we will continue to consider our customers’ safety.” Regions: Europe Nordics Sweden Topics: Casino & games Finance Lottery Sports betting Swedish state-owned gaming business Svenska Spel has seen profits hit by increased regulatory costs in the first half of the year, though the operator noted that customer growth and revenue had recovered during the second quarter.

Investors have been buying the yellow metal as uncertainty about the state of the economy has grown. In the past, gold has shown itself to be a good hedge against uncertainty. The price of the precious metal tends to increase when uncertainty rises, offsetting the decline in value of other assets. 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…However, while I do have some gold in my portfolio, I think it would be a mistake to only rely on this asset in the long run. I reckon I have a much higher chance of building a substantial financial nest egg using stocks and shares. Forget gold Gold is an interesting investment proposition. The asset does not provide any cash flow. What’s more, it usually costs money to store. This means the price of gold needs to increase by a certain percentage every year to cover costs. And as it does not produce any cash flow, it isn’t easy to place a value on the asset. It is only worth as much as other investors are willing to pay. Despite these drawbacks, the gold price has increased steadily over the past few decades. But its returns have paled in comparison to some stocks and shares. From 2000 to 2020, the price of gold increased by around 7.8% per annum. Over the same period, the FTSE 250 returned about 9%, although that has risen to 10% after the recent performance. The small difference could make a significant impact in the long run. For example, it would take roughly 50 years to turn £20k into £1m at an annual rate of 7.8%. It would take just 40 years to hit this target at a 10% annual return rate. Buying stocks and shares That’s why I’ve been buying stocks and shares for my portfolio over gold. The kind of corporations I’ve been focusing on are high-quality growth stocks, as well as blue chips and passive index funds — companies like Future and Reckitt Benckiser.I’m also avoiding businesses that may continue to struggle in the near term. This list includes IAG (although that’s not the only company I’m staying away from in the current environment). I think the stocks I’ve been buying can outperform gold in the long run, based on past trends. My calculations also suggest that by investing in these businesses, I can turn an investment of £20k into £1m in the long run. With small contributions along the way, I believe it’s possible to hit this target faster than the figures above detail. By adding an extra £200 a month, it could be possible to hit £1m in around 30 years by using stocks and shares. So, that’s why I’m relying on stocks and shares to make a million. While gold has yielded large returns in the past, I think shares are the better buy for the long term.

Ollie Linch, the returning officer of the 2010 Statuatory Annual Elections, has admitted that his computer has suffered a “technical gllitch” and thus the lists have not been e-mailed or put on the OUSU website until the next day.This means that the vast majority of students will still be unaware who is running for the elections.Joseph Renzullo, a second year student at St John’s admitted, “I have no idea who’s running for the OUSU elections.”However, students have accessed the information through facebook, where groups in support of candidates have appeared. Renzullo confirmed, “I have just seen on facebook that Daniel Lowe is running for VP Charities and Communities.”Last year, OUSU elections were plagued by technical issues. The manifesto of one presidential candidate was omitted from the Joint Manifesto Booklet and many students did not receive their online voting code until the last few hours of voting time.Current OUSU President Stefan Baskerville stressed the importance of OUSU’s engagement with students. He said to Cherwell, “Engaging with the process is crucial in making sure it leads to the best outcome. Students should read candidates’ manifestos, attend a hustings, and make an informed choice about who they want to lead their student union.”Cherwell has obtained the full list of candidates for OUSU elections. There are three main slates with David Barclay and Jake Leeper competing for the position of OUSU president. The third slate is named Another Education Is Possible (AEISP) and comprises students linked to the Social Workers’ Party.
