US and Australia drive PPB revenue growth in Q1

first_img Paddy Power Betfair has reported a 17% year-on-year increase in revenue for the first quarter of 2019, with strong growth in its US and Australian operations offsetting a decline in online sports betting revenue.Revenue for the three months ended March 31, 2019, rose to £478m (€557.0m/$624.6m). This comprised £366m in sports revenue, up 15% year-on-year, and revenue of £113m from gaming, a 26% increase.Growth was driven by the operator’s Australian and US businesses, which saw revenue rise 20% and 47% respectively.The Australian division, comprising the Sportsbet brand, saw revenue rise to £96m, driven by a 17% increase in customer stakes for the quarter. The business was hit by adverse racing results, though Paddy Power Betfair noted that while this meant net revenue margin fell below expectations, it was still 0.2 percentage points above Q1, 2018 at 9.2%.US revenue, meanwhile, came in at £78m, with a 12% growth in the operator’s non-sportsbook businesses supplemented by $24m in sports betting revenue. This has had a positive effect on the New Jersey-licensed Betfair Casino, which saw revenue jump 83% due to sportsbook cross-sell, helping the brand increase its market share in the state to 14%.Sports betting stakes for Q1 amounted to $598m, aided by FanDuel leading the New Jersey sports betting market over the period, generating 50% of market revenue. Further US growth is expected with FanDuel’s retail sportsbook going live in Boyd Gaming’s Valley Forge Casino Resort in Pennsylvania during March, and online wagering set to launch in the coming weeks.The online division accounted for the majority (£228m) of group revenue in Q1, with a strong performance from gaming offset by a decline in sports revenue. The division benefitted significantly from the acquisition of Georgian igaming operator Adjarabet in February this year, which contributed 5 percentage points to online growth in Q1. Excluding the impact of Adjarabet, revenue for the division would have been down 1% year-on-year.This, Paddy Power Betfair said, was due to a £6% decline in sports revenue to £152m, with 1% growth in exchange and B2B revenue offset by a 10% decline in sportsbook’s contribution. This was blamed on unfavourable horse racing results in February and football results in March, as well as the temporary suspension of UK horse racing fixtures in February as a result of an equine flu outbreak.Online gaming revenue, on the other hand, was up 31% to £76m. Excluding Adjarabet, revenue would have been up 14%, driven by strong growth in the Paddy Power brand.The operator said it remained focused on growing its recreational customer base and enhancing anti-money laundering procedures, as well as developing responsible gambling interventions. This, it said, was impacting revenue from higher value customers, particularly for the Betfair brnad.Retail was the only division to post an overall decline in revenue for the period, with 2% gaming machine growth offset by a 5% decrease in sports revenue. This saw retail revenue decline 2% year-on-year to £77m. While sportsbook stakes were up 4%, revenue was impacted by margin declining to 11.4%, as a result of adverse racing results in February.“Q1 was a good quarter for the Group with revenues up 17%, notwithstanding customer friendly sports results in the UK,” Paddy Power Betfair chief executive Peter Jackson said. “Underlying momentum remains good for Paddy Power with 22% growth in average daily actives.“For Betfair, we continue to make good progress on the technology development work to enhance our global customer propositions which will enable us to accelerate international growth,” Jackson continued. “Meanwhile, the geographical diversification of our online business has been further enhanced by the addition of Adjarabet in February, with integration progressing well.”Jackson added that trading in April was in line with company expectations, with FanDuel expected to generate good returns on its US sports betting investment.“[For] rest of the Group we remain on track to meet our full year profit expectations despite the adverse sports results in Q1,” he added. “We remain excited about the growth opportunities that lie ahead for the Group.” 2nd May 2019 | By contenteditor Regions: UK & Ireland US New Jersey Pennsylvania Topics: Casino & games Finance Sports betting Strategy Slots Paddy Power Betfair has reported a 17% year-on-year increase in revenue for the first quarter of 2019, with strong growth in its US and Australian operations offsetting a decline in online sports betting revenue.

See all posts by Matthew Dumigan Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Matthew Dumigan | Saturday, 4th July, 2020 Matthew Dumigan has no position in any of the shares mentioned. The Motley Fool UK owns shares of and has recommended GlaxoSmithKline and Unilever. The Motley Fool UK has recommended Tesco. Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro. Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors.center_img Unsurprisingly, the March stock market sell-off triggered a mass exodus from equities to alternative assets such as gold and Bitcoin. As market sentiment rapidly deteriorated, investors became spooked by volatile share prices and economic uncertainty. Nevertheless, I think investing in the best UK shares available on the market today still remains a superior way of building capital.The problem with BitcoinThe price of Bitcoin surged in the wake of the market crash. In fact, the virtual currency has vastly outperformed many stock market indexes around the world. What’s more, this could feasibly continue in the short term. Global equities look set to continue to grapple with the implications of the wider macroeconomic uncertainty.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, let’s not forget that the price of Bitcoin plunged in tandem with UK shares in early March. From mid-February to mid-March, the cryptocurrency shed around 50% of its value. What’s more, wild downswings like this are not a rare occurrence for Bitcoin investors. Simply observing the virtual currency’s price chart tells you everything you need to know.On top of this, I’m not convinced that Bitcoin’s future prospects are the brightest. After 11 years in circulation, the cryptocurrency is still not widely used or accepted. It seems that for now and the foreseeable future, its valuation must continue to be derived from sheer investor speculation.Don’t get me wrong, I’m not ruling out a small allocation to Bitcoin in a diversified investment portfolio. Rather, I believe that buying a handful of the best UK shares is a superior way to build wealth. Especially over the long term.A better alternative: Buying the best UK sharesThe buy-and-hold investment strategy is a tried and tested way of building capital. Just look at the success of investing titans such as Warren Buffett, who have utilised this approach throughout their time in the market.Here at The Motley Fool, we echo the words of Buffett in that “our favourite stock holding period is forever”. In other words, the longer you hold your investments for, the larger you can expect your gains to be. This is thanks to the wonders of compound returns, which is the snowballing effect that turns a relatively small investment into a huge sum over time. Given the average annual return of the FTSE 100 is around 8%, you have the potential to realise some pretty serious gains.In my view, the best way to implement this strategy is by selecting a handful of the best UK shares that you’d be comfortable holding forever. For me, that means taking a closer look at companies such as Unilever, GlaxoSmithKline, and Tesco. All three of these companies have well-established market positions, stable earnings growth, and boast healthy dividend yields.Alternatively, you may think the best investment for you would be to gain exposure to a larger amount of UK shares. If so, I recommend taking a look at a cheap UK tracker fund, such as the Vanguard FTSE UK All Share Index.Whichever you choose, investing in equities and holding them for the long term is a far safer and superior way to build capital in my eyes. As such, I’d ensure that buying some of the best UK shares remains the top priority when it comes to growing a bulky Stocks and Shares ISA.

Below we have some names to look out for.England – Owen FarrellAfter their Rugby World Cup exploits England are one of the favourites to win the Grand Slam at the moment and if they perform at the level they showed in Japan, then Owen Farrell is almost certain to collect a lot of points across the five matches.Wales – Dan BiggarBiggar has made the kicking role his own for wales and if they collect another Grand Slam then it would not be a surprise to see the 30-year-old top of the pile.Ireland – Jonathan SextonHaving been top points scorer back in 2014, we expect Sexton to contend once again in 2020.France – Romain NtamackThe question here is if he Ntamack starts. He has shown his kicking ability in the past and he pops up with tries often, but with a new coach it is difficult to predict who will have start and who will have the kicking duties.Scotland – Finn RussellWith the retirement of Greig Laidlaw, Russell is expected to take over the kicking duties for Scotland.Italy – Tomasso AllanHe is an accurate kicker no doubt but Italy always struggle to score points so Allan may struggle to get to the top of the leaderboard.Top Point-Scorer In The 2020 Six NationsUpdated Standings Jonathan Sexton – 23 points Collapse Six Nations Fixtures 2022 Who is leading the way in the Six… Follow our Six Nations homepage which we update regularly with news and features.Also make sure you know about the Fixtures, Injuries, Table, Venues, TV Coverage by clicking on the highlighted links.Finally, don’t forget to follow Rugby World on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram Six Nations Table 2021 Six Nations Bonus Points Explained Six Nations Fixtures 2022 The 2022 Six Nations… Expandlast_img read more

Itoje will be next Lions captain says Warburton, who thinks AWJ’s starting place isn’t certain

first_imgThursday Apr 22, 2021 Itoje will be next Lions captain says Warburton, who thinks AWJ’s starting place isn’t certain Sam Warburton believes Maro Itoje has the edge over Alun Wyn Jones in the race to become British and Irish Lions captain for the summer tour to South Africa.ADVERTISEMENTA week after another former Lions skipper in Paul O’Connell endorsed the credentials of Owen Farrell, Warburton claimed that Itoje’s status as a certainty for the Test team is a major factor in his favour.The Saracens second row was one of England’s better performers in a poor Six Nations, but his high penalty count appeared to dent his chances of being chosen for the role by Warren Gatland.But Warburton, Lions captain in 2017 and 2019, does not see that as an obstacle for a player who excelled in New Zealand four years ago and offers more than Wales talisman Jones.“I’ve gone back and forth, but I’ll go with who I thought at the very beginning and that’s Maro Itoje,” Warburton said.“Anybody who looked at the first game of the Six Nations against Scotland where he conceded four or five penalties would say ‘oh you can’t do that’, but that was a bit of rustiness.“Warren will want him primed and ready to go as he’s one of the players who will be a guaranteed Test starter. I was extremely impressed with him in 2017 and Warren would have seen all that as well.ADVERTISEMENT“The other captaincy candidates are a little bit older. You question whether it would be a bit too much pressure for them to go through a tour like this at the end of the season.“I’ve gone back and forth with him and Alun Wyn Jones. Alun Wyn will be up there and I’m sure will captain games on tour, but I would probably go with Maro Itoje.“The reason I say Maro as captain is because I think he’s a dead cert and it’s between Alun Wyn and James Ryan to battle it out for that number five shirt.“Warren knows the pressure on the captain if they are not a guaranteed starter and I think there are six bankers to start a Test – Tadhg Furlong, Maro Itoje, Taulupe Faletau, Tom Curry, Anthony Watson and Stuart Hogg.ADVERTISEMENT“I don’t think he will pick a back as captain, so the other player who has the leadership experience he will want is Maro. If Alun Wyn is captain, though, you know you will be in safe hands.”Warburton excelled as a flanker in 74 Tests for Wales and five for the Lions and he sees the competition for back row places when Gatland names his squad on May 6 as ferocious with big-name casualties certain.“I don’t know who will miss out and it will be incredibly cruel, but I think Hamish Watson and Tom Curry will go. I think Sam Simmonds will go” he said.“Then you’ve also got people who can cover six like Maro Itoje, Courtney Lawes and Tadhg Beirne. All of those players plus the Welsh boys Justin Tipuric, Josh Navidi and Faletau don’t fit. There’s going to be some big, big omissions.“If Sam Underhill keeps playing well for Bath, he could go. England missed him and Lawes massively in the Six Nations. You can’t overlook them just because they missed the Six Nations.“All these brilliant back-rows aren’t going to go. Unfortunately, I’d love to see them all go and they’re all worthy of going, but I think there’s going to be a Welsh casualty.”Watson was named player of the 2021 Six Nations and Warburton rubbishes the claim that the powerful Scotland flanker, who stands 6’0 and is 16 stones, is too small to face the Springboks.“Hamish Watson is never too small. Power trumps size every day of the week. I think that Warren Gatland would be purring watching Hamish Watson over the Six Nations,” he said.“As things are right now he’s a Test starter and I can’t wait to see how he goes in the warm-up games.”Sam Warburton was speaking as Canterbury launched the British & Irish Lions Test Jersey.

Taquinho Apartment / Lez Arquitetura

first_img Project Team:Marianna ResendeCountry:BrazilMore SpecsLess SpecsSave this picture!© Júlia TótoliRecommended ProductsPartitionsFlorenseDividing Doors – PrismaPartitionsSky-FrameGlass Balustrade System – LitefrontWoodLunawoodThermowood FacadesSofasFlexformSofa – Victor LargeText description provided by the architects. The owners of the “Taquinho Apartment” love Brasilia and found an excellent apartment in one of the first superblocks built in the modernist city. With an original wooden parquet floor, large windows and generous ceilings, the apartment had imminent potential, but needed a good renovation with reorganization of the flows and room divisions to accommodate the new family needs. As they often receive visits, the residents needed a large social area that would fit family and friends together. The starting point was the integration of the living room with the dining room and kitchen by demolishing the main wall, transforming the whole area into one space.Save this picture!© Júlia TótoliSave this picture!PlanSave this picture!© Júlia TótoliThe granite countertop allows communication between rooms and meets the family’s dynamics. The central countertop supports the suspended bench finished with blue hydraulic tiles that serves as a seat for the dining table, designed to fit up to 12 people. The laundry was relocated as well and allowed the kitchen to grow even more. The Brazilian northeastern culture was also considered in the project. We seek to create relationships between these different regions through finishings, decoration items and furniture. We prioritized artisanal and natural materials, creating a cozy “house” atmosphere  inside an apartment.Save this picture!© Júlia TótoliExposed concrete benches were executed during the reconstruction, both in the living room and in the toilet, which received a purple “açaí” color painting that contrasts with the black, gray and white floor. The existing slab was treated and received a concrete finish to be a characteristic element of the project, contrasting with the walls that are mostly covered with white elements such as crude texture, brick and painting. The original parquet floor was revitalized, bringing warmth to the space.Save this picture!© Júlia TótoliSave this picture!© Júlia TótoliThe children’s room was designed to serve several functions. We designed the bunk bed with lateral access through the stairs or through the climbing wall. The upper closure was made with manually braided ropes. Next to the bed is a chest for toys and a cocoon swing. A colorful mural tells a story and brings the theme of the city in a playful and fun way. During the briefing, the owners asked us to add the feeling of resort to the apartment, with spaces to stretch out on a hammock and relax at the end of a day. We also conducted this request for the master suite, which originally housed a large, dysfunctional bathroom. We reduced the bathroom and inserted a large closet with a mirror wall to reflect the exterior landscape.Save this picture!© Júlia TótoliThe windows open to the treetops view. This feeling inspired us to enrich this relationship with the vegetation. So, plants were located in every room possible and helped make the apartment relaxing, light and welcoming.Save this picture!© Júlia TótoliSave this picture!© Júlia TótoliProject gallerySee allShow lessCall for Submissions: Interiors of Isolation BookCall for SubmissionsRe-think Dupont Circle Design CompetitionBuilt Projects & MasterplansProject locationAddress:Brasilia – Distrito Federal, BrazilLocation to be used only as a reference.

Sustainable Rain Garden to Replace Vacant Eyesore

first_img 9 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it Top of the News Sustainability and civic improvement are high priorities in Pasadena, and city government works hard to put them into practice together whenever possible. That’s why Pasadena’s departments of Water and Power (PWP), Public Works, and the Planning Department’s Cultural Arts Division are partnering with local businesses to design and build a rain garden on a small piece of vacant, city-owned property at the southwest corner of Union and Catalina streets. The garden will be aesthetically pleasing and instructive at the same time.What is currently an unused parcel of land soon will be transformed into a beautiful and self-sustaining garden incorporating rock swales and basins designed to hold rain water on site for drought-tolerant native plants. Drip irrigation will be installed to minimize water use during the summer months. Colorful, ornamental Red Bud trees and a new fence, benches, trash bins and picnic table will be added, and a colorful artwork, part of the city’s Rotating Public Art Exhibition program, will serve as a focal point for the beautiful new garden.On Saturday, April 28, PWP will host a Rain Garden Workshop on the site from 9 a.m to 3 p.m. Work on the new garden will begin that morning, and Pamela Berstler of G3-Green Gardens Group will use the project to show how anyone can build a rain garden of sustainable native plants. Artist Christie Beniston will also be on hand to discuss her creation “Topiaries,” which is installed at the rain garden site. The rain garden concept is so popular with Pasadena homeowners that registration for this hands-on educational clinic is already filled.The garden should be about half complete by the end of the day. The remainder of the planting and irrigation will be finished shortly thereafter by the city and its contractors. Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box.
