Outgoing ADM chief criticises government over departure

A political cleansing spoils system.”The change comes after the Italian government last week also signed off on the Lega-5Star ‘Dignity Degree’, which includes new laws that will ban gambling advertising in the country.The changes will not come into full effect until January 1, 2019, and operators will have until June 30 next year to comply with changes, but the move has led to widespread criticism.Maarten Haijer, the secretary general of the European Gaming and Betting Association, branded the ban on gambling advertising as impractical and “counterproductive”.Paddy Power Betfair has also spoken out against the ban.Speaking after the bookmaker last week unveiled its first-half results, chief executive Peter Jackson said the firm is seeking to achieve “podium position” in all regulated markets where it is active, including Italy.Although Jackson said while this could be possible through organic growth and mergers and acquisitions, the ad ban could hamper progress and it could be forced to pull out of the region.“I guess, as a last resort, if you couldn’t make any of those things happen, then you might choose to exit the market,” Jackson said, according to The Times. “It’s quite tough in Italy when you can’t advertise to grow.” Tags: Card Rooms and Poker Online Gambling OTB and Betting Shopslast_img read more

Optimove iGaming Pulse – April 2019

first_img Tags: Mobile Online Gambling AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter iGamingBusiness.com has agreed a new partnership with marketing and customer retention specialist Optimove to bring readers exclusive insights into player habits from a range of different markets, across all igaming verticals. In April’s edition, research lab team leader lead Omer Liss reports on an uptick in player activity and investigates the impact of the first leg of Tottenham Hotspur’s Champions League semi final against Ajax Amsterdam.The below data is available here exclusively before being made publicly available next week.Looking at Optimove’s iGaming Pulse for April, we see that just in time for Spring, bettors are waking up from their winter slumber.Following a slower March, sports and casino operators are showing monthly revenue per player numbers up 17% on average (from €76 to €88.) There’s also a steadily rising trend in the new players retention rate from the beginning of January 2019 from 37% to 40%.Putting seasonality aside, monthly deposits show a year-on-year lift of 27% from April 2018 to April 2019, and the new retention rate shows a 39% uplift compared to April last year. Conversion is up 47% year-on-year.In sports, monthly revenue per player shows an increase from €61 to €73 on average: a 20% uplift per player, which may be explained by players’ activities around the quarter finals and one semi-final game in the Champions League which occurred during April.When comparing all countries’ average deposit amount to the Netherlands’ average deposit amount, we see that in the Netherlands, the average deposit amount is almost 60% higher than the total average for all countries.That staggering figure pales in comparison to the UK’s average deposit amount which was 130% (!) higher than the total average for all countries. Both of these metrics can be explained by the Champions League semi-finals game between Ajax and Tottenham, which occurred on the very last day of April.Another interesting sports insight shows a continuously rising trend in new retention rate following a drop in August 2018 due to the aftermath of the World Cup. The rise is steady at 48% since August 2018, and 13% year-on-year.In Casino, we see the average number of monthly deposits per player is up 16% year-on-year.The monthly revenue per player is showing a rising trend in general, going up to €100 per player in April 2019, compared to €77 in April 2018. There’s a rising trend in monthly revenue per player, and at the same time, a steady average deposit amount. One explanation for this could be that players are making smaller deposits more often, meaning they are more active and engaged with brands.Another interesting observation is the mobile bet rate which shows an overall rising trend of 8% year-on-year, and 2% month-on-month. Over all, more than half of the bets (52%) made this month were made via mobile. The mobile bettors ratio is showing the same rising trend.KPI Close-up: Margins: Margins are determined by calculating the following:Margin = 1 – (win amount divided by bet amount)Simply explained, the margin is the profit an operator makes from any bet a customer places. A 10% margin means that for every 100 the bettor places, the operator makes 10.  While the margin for sports betting is higher, casino betting has higher rollover, so in fact, operators profit more from their casino players than their sports players.Omer Liss: Omer Liss leads the Strategic Services research team at Optimove, helping leading marketers optimize their customer retention strategy.

Could now be the time to buy in?After striking out at 21-year lows in March, BP has soared a whopping 40% in value. Still, at 325p per share, the FTSE 100 oilie’s still trading at a meaty discount to its pre-plunge levels above 450p.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…Buyers would argue that it now reflects the near-term storm facing the oil market. And what a storm the world’s oil majors face. According to the International Energy Agency, worldwide oil demand will slump by 8.1m barrels per day in 2020, the biggest annual drop on record.What’s more, consumption will only return to pre-coronavirus levels in 2022 at the earliest, the body estimates. No wonder BP slashed the valuation of its oil and gas assets by up to $17.5bn earlier today.Price questionsHowever, BP’s fans would argue that the recent share price correction fully reflects these near-term challenges. They might say, too, that according to conventional wisdom, the key to successful investing is to buy shares with a view to holding them for a decade or more. And this FTSE 100 share will be in great shape to ride the gradual oil price recovery and enjoy mighty profits growth over that time span, right?I’m afraid I’m not so sure. First of all I’m worried about the possibility of prolonged oversupply in the oil market through the 2020s and possibly beyond.Major producers (like the OPEC+ group) have been axing production following the Covid-19 outbreak on fears over a prolonged demand slump. The danger is, though, that the taps will start to be switched on again as the Brent price recovers, keeping global inventories chock-full and limiting any price rises. Countries that have invested large amounts in their oil industries like the US, Brazil, Norway, and Guyana will certainly be getting itchy trigger fingers.It’s possible that BP might not be in as strong a position to capitalise on any sustained recovery in black gold prices. The Footsie firm also announced today that it was “reviewing its intent to develop some of its exploration prospects” in a move that could seriously damage its profits-making potential later down the line.The BP dividend questionBut let’s look at the positives to BP at current prices. City analysts are expecting the oilie’s bottom line to surge next year, leading them to predict that it will have the confidence to keep its ultra-generous dividend policy in play too. This means that dividend yields sit north of 9% for both 2020 and 2021.I have severe reservations about whether BP will be able to meet brokers’s lofty expectations, though. With earnings expected to crumble to around 2.5 US cents per share in 2020, for instance, will it really be able to afford to pay another 41-cent annual dividend? Call me a stick in the mud, but the fact that its colossal net debt pile sits at $51.4bn and continues to grow suggests to me that the answer is ‘no.’So forget about the BP share price, I say. It’s a share that’s loaded with risk, and one whose forward P/E ratio of 17.5 times fails to reflect this. I’d prefer to buy other FTSE 100 dividend stocks today.

Restaurants are still allowed to serve food to customer via delivery, take-out or drive-thru.“The new health officer order allows more sectors to reopen, adhering to strict distancing and infection control directives,” Ferrer said. “Since none of us wants the recovery to lead to many more deaths, we need to do our part to take care of each other. This means being diligent about physical distancing and wearing cloth face coverings whenever you are around people who are not from your household.

‘Dignity Will Not Be Lost When Witnessed From Home’: Kerala High Court Says COVID Norms Should Not Be Diluted For Government’s Swearing-in

first_imgNews Updates’Dignity Will Not Be Lost When Witnessed From Home’: Kerala High Court Says COVID Norms Should Not Be Diluted For Government’s Swearing-in Lydia Suzanne Thomas19 May 2021 8:02 AMShare This – xWhile disposing of petitions challenging the Kerala Government’s decision to conduct the swearing-in ceremony of the newly-elected LDF government at Chandrasekharan Nair Stadium in Thiruvananthapuram on May 20, with 500 people in attendance, the Kerala High Court made crucial observations relating to the necessity of requiring the attendance of so many people for a constitutional function.Disposing of the petition and imposing restrictions on the swearing-in ceremony, Chief Justice S Manikumar and Justice Shaji P Chaly stated,”…the present Pandemic situation would not permit any authority to conduct a Government function much less, even a Swearing-in Ceremony of the new Council of Ministers, with such a large gathering of 500 persons”The Court also said,”We observe that dignity will not be lost when the swearing-in ceremony is witnessed from home. and not a political function of a party/parties, such function can be conducted, in a dignified manner, even in the absence of many, who are not part and parcel of the performance of the ceremony but only to witness the ceremony.”The Court went on to opine that save for the persons who were actually being administered the Oath of Office, other persons were not to be allowed to participate in the Ceremony.”Though Mr. K.V.Sohan, learned State Attorney described the function as a constitutional function and, therefore, to be conducted in a dignified manner, we observe that except His Excellency, the officials attached to his office, Hon’ble Ministers, who are to be administered the Oath of office, and the required Government officials to assist the performance of the programme, His Excellency the Governor, no other persons have to be allowed to participate in the swearing-in ceremony.”Interestingly, after the State Attorney submitted that the Government had taken necessary precautions to stop the spread of the virus, the Bench proceeded to draw parallels between the swearing-in ceremony and a wedding with 500 persons in attendance organised during the surge of Covid cases.With the remark that a Government function cannot be converted into a public or political function, the Bench comments,”If such a contention is accepted, then even marriages can be performed with the participation of 500 people with RT-PCR test conducted 48 hours before solemnisation of the marriage in any big Marriage Hall or open place, which can accommodate people more than 500. So also, the final rites and obsequies ceremonies, in the case of death. We do not see any difference as to whether it is a Government function or family function or ceremony, in relation to death and the contentions of the learned State Attorney as regards the nature of the function or ceremony, as the case may be, cannot be countenanced in entirely.” The Court went on to say,”Even going by the restrictions imposed in the Government Order dated 06.05.2021 and 14.05.2021 respectively, though it is described as a constitutional function as per the version of learned State Attorney, such large gathering cannot be permitted.”On this note, the Court drew attention to Kerala’s Covid statistics and why the lockdowns/triple lockdowns were declared in the first place.Since the government knew why the lockdowns were declared, along with the restrictions, these could not be diluted solely for the swearing-in.Surge of Covid-19 pandemic is reflected in the statistics of the Government of Kerala. Purpose of lock down/triple lock down known to the Government. That is why, such stringent conditions are imposed on the public, applicable to all citizens. The restrictions should not be diluted, or in other words, altered, by the Government, solely for the swearing-in-ceremony.The Bench also remarked that the Government Order made no reference to the opinion of any expert, including a medical expert before the decision to conduct the ceremony was taken, despite the State Attorney’s assertion that the decision was taken after consultation.”Though the learned State Attorney submitted that the Chairperson, State Executive Committee, State Disaster Management Authority has issued the abovesaid Government order dated 17.05.2021, after consulting with the experts, perusal of the said Government order does not indicate even a reference to the opinion of any expert, particularly medical experts. Besides, when COVID-19 Pandemic situation is worsening in all the parts of the country, including Kerala, though claimed to be one of the defenders, at some point of time, the present Pandemic situation would not permit any authority to conduct a Government function much less, even a Swearing-in Ceremony of the new Council of Ministers, with such a large gathering of 500 persons”As the judgment progresses, the Court points out that Kerala’s Covid cases showed no substantial change between May 6 and May 17, and that on the other hand, there was a rise in the number of deaths.”Though the learned State Attorney submitted that all the invitees would be subjected to RT-PCR test, we are not inclined to accept the said submission also, for the reason that there is no substantial change in the number of infected in active cases from 06.05.2021 to 17.05.2021. Needless to say, the increase in the number of death, warranting the Chairperson, State Executive Committee, State Disaster Management Authority, to come to the conclusion that Swearing-in Ceremony can be performed with the restrictions stated in the impugned Government order dated 17.05.2021, the Court observed.In the tail end of the judgment, the Court makes reference to the Government of Kerala’s standing as a forerunner in Covid-19 management, and therefore urges for restrictions “to the maximum” to avoid the spread of the virus.
