Tags: Fantasy Sports Online Gambling AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Daily fantasy sports provider Scout Gaming Group has revealed that a 148.6% year-on-year increase in revenue during the first quarter helped to reduce its losses for the period.Total revenue for the three months through to 31 March amounted to SEK8.7m (£734,998/€823,280/$900,810), up from SEK3.5m in the same period last year.Scout’s revenue primarily relates to gaming related services that it provides to clients, and the group said the rise was down to launching with new partners in Q1 and higher activity within its existing client base compared to 2019.Scout’s chief executive Andreas Ternstrom said revenue would have been higher for the quarter, but progress was slightly stunted by the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic, with the cancellation of sporting events slowing revenue growth.However, with the sports calendar set to return to normal later in the year, Ternstrom does not expect the virus to have a long-term impact on the business.“We had previously stated that the reduced sports calendar was expected to have had a negative impact on revenue in the first quarter, estimated between SEK1m to SEK1.5m, he said.“However, with the recent week’s positive signals from most of the European football leagues, our assessment remains that the sports calendar will be gradually normalised during the summer, hence we do not expect any long-term negative effects of Covid-19.Spending in the quarter was up 6.3% year-on-year to SEK21.8m, despite Scout lowering personnel costs – its main outgoing – from SEK11.5 in Q1 of 2019 to SEK10.7m this year.Other external expenses jumped 44.8% from SEK6.7m to SEK9.7m, which Scout said was mainly due to guaranteed prize pools and associated marketing costs, but spend related to depreciation, amortisation and impairment of property, plant and equipment was down 39.1% to SEK1.4m.Such was the impact of the revenue increase that, despite higher spending in the quarter, Scout’s operating loss fell from SEK17.0m to SEK13.1m.After taking into account SEK3.3m worth of financial items, loss before tax stood at SEK9.8m, compared to SEK 16.1m last year, while loss after tax was reduced from SEK16.1m to SEK9.8m.“Since we control the entire production chain ourselves, from the technical platform, statistics, pricing to graphic design, we have succeeded in providing a competitive product even though the sports calendar has appeared very different in recent months,” Ternstrom said.“In addition, with a dedicated team, we have continued to deliver lots of playable events where most of our volume since the beginning of April originates from esports-related markets.”Since the end of the quarter, Scout announced number of esports developments, including the launch of a new esports wagering offering across its network of partners. Scout also agreed a B2B esports deal with the GLHF.gg platform.Ternstrom also referenced some of the measures Scout took to help limit the impact of coronavirus on the business. These included employee furloughs and wage reductions, as well as renegotiating supplier agreements, as well as cancelling all business travel.“The balance between saving and investing is carefully made, as retained partners, business-critical employees and functionality are a prerequisite for a long- term successful company,” Ternstrom said.In addition, Ternstrom noted two heavily oversubscribed directed share issues in Q2, through which Scout was able to generate a total of SEK36m, bolstering its financial position as a result.“As Scout is currently in a strong growth phase, we expect to maintain higher revenues at group level during the second quarter compared to the previous year,” Ternstrom said.“However, due to some uncertainties regarding the restart of sports, it is too early to make any further commitments, as about half of the second quarter remains.”center_img Topics: Finance Sports betting DFS DFS Revenue growth helps Scout reduce first quarter loss Email Addresslast_img read more

first_img The Royal Mail (LSE: RMG) share price is down 35% over the past 12 months, and down 70% since a peak in May 2018.Earnings per share slumped by 33% in the year to March 2019, and forecasts suggest a further 30% drop for the current year. That puts the shares on a forward price-to-earnings ratio of 8.5, which is low. But before you start thinking it’s a bargain, I have more bad news.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…Analysts are predicting a further 40% EPS fall in the 2020–21 year, which would price the shares on a P/E of 14, so maybe not so cheap after all. What would it take to reverse the slump and give Royal Mail shares a boost?Industrial actionThe obvious thing is an end to the threat of industrial action. Without wanting to comment on the fairness (or otherwise) of modern employment practices, it’s a simple fact that Royal Mail in a very competitive environment these days.The old days of state monopolies and jobs for life are gone. Firms that remain stuck in the same old sixties union-dominated culture will not be able to compete, and will not survive.Right now, the company and the Communication Workers Union (CWU) are at each other’s throats, with a strike threat in the balance. But with the union having dismissed the RM’s latest offer as an “absolute disgrace,” I’m not optimistic.In the short term, we need a settlement and an end to the strike threat. In the longer term, we need a change of culture.Customer experienceRoyal Mail has, for years, been falling behind the competition in the service it offers. When I receive parcels from competitors, I’m usually informed of a delivery slot of a few hours at the most. Often it’s just a one-hour window. And increasingly I can watch the delivery on map, and count down how many drops before I get my goodies.The most recent notification I got from Royal Mail, last week, was effectively “Sometime Wednesday, stay in all day if you want it.”The company knows it needs to improve, and has plans to do it. But the strike threat is holding it back. Shareholders need to see some progress, and soon.Big investmentRM needs to invest big and obviously knows it, as its February trading update made clear.CEO Rico Back said: “We stand ready to invest £1.8 billion to modernise and grow in the UK.” And after suggesting frustration with the CWU, he added that “we cannot afford to delay this essential transformation any longer.”The trouble is, I see a clash with the company’s cash management and dividend culture here. At the interim stage at 29 September, net debt had ballooned. From £470m a year previously, the total stood towering at £1,372m (though partly due to the introduction of IFRS 16).At least the company has revised its dividend policy. After a very generous 25p per share last year, shareholders can only expect around 14.4p this year. But earnings continue to fall, and even the slashed payment would still yield 8%.I think RM’s dividend action is too little too late, and I think it needs to get serious about stemming the haemorrhage of cash.Will these changes happen in 2020? I’m not so sure, and I’m staying away.

first_img Previous: HOPE NOW Completes 768,000 Modifications Next: Consumer Survey Reveals Positive Outlook for Coming Year  Print This Post The New York regulator who put a hold on Ocwen’s latest mortgage servicing rights (MSR) deal with Wells Fargo expressed on Wednesday his concerns about the rapid growth of non-bank servicers in the industry—and his belief that regulators should step in when necessary.Benjamin Lawsky, superintendent of financial services for New York, outlined his worries before an audience at the New York Bankers Association Annual Meeting and Economic Forum.”In 2011, all of the ten largest mortgage servicers were traditional banks. Today, four of the top ten are non-banks,” Lawsky said. “And those four non-bank firms alone service more than a trillion dollars of loans—10 percent of the residential mortgage market, and climbing.”With much of this growth coming from distressed loans unloaded from large banks burdened by greater regulatory pressure, Lawsky said his concerns lie with the homeowners struggling on those mortgages.”There are real people at the other ends of these loans, and the ability to work with those homeowners is not something that these non-bank firms can build up overnight,” he remarked.The regulator also said watchdogs should maintain a healthy dose of skepticism when these companies tout their abilities to operate at a lower cost, saying such boasts merit a closer examination.”[W]hen we take that closer look at the non-bank mortgage servicing industry, we see corners being cut. And, as a result of those cut corners, we are seeing far too many struggling homeowners getting caught in a vortex of lost paperwork, unexplained fees, and avoidable foreclosures,” he said.Lawsky’s remarks cast a little more light on his move to slow portfolio growth at Ocwen, which has expanded dramatically in the last year. He referenced the company—albeit without naming it—in his speech, pointing to the $300 billion growth in its servicing portfolio from 2012 to November 2013.In the next two to three years, Ocwen sees more than $1 trillion in growth opportunities in bank divestiture and servicer acquisitions, according to a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission.Ocwen did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Lawsky’s remarks, though the company said in a release in early February that it intends to work closely with New York’s Department of Financial Services “to resolve its concerns about Ocwen’s servicing portfolio growth.” Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Home / Daily Dose / Regulator Voices Worries on Growth of Non-Bank Servicers Benjamin Lawsky Ocwen Servicers 2014-02-13 Tory Barringer The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago February 13, 2014 631 Views Tagged with: Benjamin Lawsky Ocwen Servicers Related Articles Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days agocenter_img Share Save Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, Headlines, News Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Sign up for DS News Daily Regulator Voices Worries on Growth of Non-Bank Servicers Subscribelast_img read more

first_imgAntarctica is an ice-dominated continent and all its terrestrial and freshwater habitats are fragmented, which leads to genetic divergence and, eventually, speciation. Acutuncus antarcticus is the most common Antarctic tardigrade and its cryptobiotic capabilities, small size and parthenogenetic reproduction present a high potential for dispersal and colonisation. Morphological (light and electron microscopy, karyology) and molecular (18S rRNA and cytochrome c oxidase subunit I (COI) genes) analyses on seven populations of A. antarcticus elucidated the genetic diversity and distribution of this species. All analysed populations were morphologically indistinguishable and made up of diploid females. All specimens presented the same 18S rRNA sequence. In contrast, COI analysis showed higher variability, with most Victoria Land populations presenting up to five different haplotypes. Genetic distances between Victoria Land specimens and those found elsewhere in Antarctica were low, while distances between Dronning Maud Land and specimens from elsewhere were high. Our analyses show that A. antarcticus can still be considered a pan-Antarctic species, although the moderately high genetic diversity within Victoria Land indicates the potential for speciation events. Regions of Victoria Land are considered to have been possible refugia during the last glacial maximum and a current biodiversity hotspot, which the populations of A. antarcticus mirror with a higher diversity than in other regions of Antarctica.last_img read more
