Sportnco drives France Pari Group growth in Q1

first_img French betting operator France Pari Group has cited the success of its Sportnco B2B arm as the main driver behind a year-on-year increase in both revenue and earnings during the first quarter of 2019.Group revenue for the three months to March 31, 2019, amounted to €3.5m (£3.0m/$3.9m), up 13% on €3.1m in the corresponding period last year.France Pari said B2B activities driven by Sportnco were the main reason for this increase, highlighting particular success across regulated markets in Belgium, France and Spain.This growth also helped drive earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA) up 18% from €840,000 to €1m.“Our B2B strategy in France and Spain is reaping rewards and we are now looking at acquiring profitable companies with whom we could develop commercial and financial synergies in order to accelerate our growth in B2B,” France Pari founder and CEO, Hervé Schlosser (pictured), said.France Pari expects both revenue EBITDA to increase further throughout the course of 2019, boosted by the launch of bespoke sportsbooks for new clients such as Sisal in Spain and ZeBet in Portugal.The operator has forecast full-year revenue of approximately €15.5m, which would represent an increase of 20% on the €13m reported in 2018.In terms of earnings, France Pari expects full-year EBITDA to reach between €4.5m to €5m, meaning potential year-on-year growth of 33% on €3.7m last year.France Pari has also noted that by the end of 2019, it will have reimbursed the largest part of its debt relating to the acquisition of Spanish operator Seurtia in July 2016. The French operator said Suertia has been highly successful and exceeded initial expectations.As a result, France Pari is now looking at potential new acquisitions to accelerate its growth in the B2B sector.

Forget the airlines! A FTSE 100 stock I think will never be the same after Covid-19

first_img Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. The FTSE 100 finds itself back on the defensive on Monday. It’s not a reflection of fresh fears over US-Chinese relations though, and concerns over new deadlock on the trade front. This start-of-week reversal instead reflects bearish comments on the aviation industry by Warren Buffett.Airlines easyJet and IAG, along with plane engine-builder Rolls-Royce lead today’s board of biggest Footsie losers. It follows news at the weekend that Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway had sold all of its holdings in four major US airlines.  “The world [has] changed for airlines” following the Covid-19 outbreak, Buffett said.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…When the so-called ‘Sage of Omaha’ speaks, financial markets take note. It’s not difficult to subscribe to his school of thought either. Planes remain grounded as countries across the world remain on lockdown. The picture is clear as mud as to when airlines will be able to take to the skies en masse again. And even when they get the go-ahead, a tough economic environment could weigh on demand from both holidaymakers and business passengers.Ah, but…Not everyone is holding their head in their hands when pondering the fate of the UK operators. Ryanair chief executive Michael O’Leary expects significant fare-slashing to help traveller numbers rebound in the near-term as quarantine measures are gradually unwound.The Irish airline’s head honcho actually expects 2021 to prove a fruitful year for the industry. He’s commented that “2021 has every prospect of being a bumper year in terms of earnings,” noting lower ticket prices will be offset by cheaper fuel values.Provided that the biggest airlines like easyJet and IAG have the balance sheets to survive the current crisis then they could still thrive over the medium- to long-term. The likely extinction of rivals (like FlyBe) could provide these Footsie firms with an extra sales boost too. But, of course, don’t rule out those recent comments from Buffett. You don’t become a stock market billionaire without a sound view on events!A FTSE 100 stock I’d avoidThe jury may be out on IAG et al. But there are several FTSE 100 shares whose long-term outlook has definitely worsened following the coronavirus outbreak. British American Tobacco is one, as I recently described. Luxury fashion giant Burberry Group (LSE: BRBY) is another.Shares in Burberry’s business dropped to their cheapest for almost four years earlier this month, reflecting the impact that the coronavirus outbreak will have on its sales. The slump followed its guidance that retail sales in the three months to March would be down almost a third, and down between 70% and 80% in the final weeks in the period.Clearly, the mass closure of its stores was going to hammer sales. Things, however, are likely to remain difficult long after the shutters have gone up. Data today showed the economy in its critical Hong Kong marketplace fell 8.9% in quarter one, the biggest dive in history. And conditions there are likely to remain difficult as mass protests persist and US-Chinese trade relations come under pressure.At current prices, Burberry trades on a forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio around 21 times. This is far too high, given the severe economic fallout of the Covid-19 crisis in all its global markets. It’s a scenario that’s hit the Footsie firm’s turnaround plan significantly.So I’d rather put my money in other FTSE 100 stocks today. Forget the airlines!

Six Nations postponements through the years

first_img France’s game against Ireland in 2012 was postponed just minutes before kick off (Getty Images) 1985 Bad weather sweeping across Western Europe caused three fixtures postponements in 1985. Postponements meant Ireland faced England and France faced Wales in late March instead, while Wales waited until April to play England after a frozen Cardiff pitch postponed their fixture.1987 England v Scotland and Wales v Ireland were both postponed on January 17 due to poor travelling conditions. The pitches in London and Cardiff were both deemed perfectly playable, but the decision was made to postpone the fixtures until April after it was determined too dangerous for Scottish, Irish and northern English fans to travel for the games.2001The outbreak of Foot & Mouth disease at the start of the millennium caused Ireland to postpone all three of their fixtures against the other home nations, amid concerns for their population and livestock. First detected in February, Ireland had already played France and Italy before the outbreak. Postponing the three fixtures until September and October allowed Ireland to scupper England’s hopes of a Grand Slam after winning 20-14, although they still won the championship. 2012 Just ten minutes before kick-off, officials deemed France’s pitch for their second round game against Ireland unplayable, moving the fixture from 11 February to 4 March with the temperature well below freezing, at -5. Not since the 1980s had bad weather postponed a game.2020 All it took to halt an entire round of Six Nations fixtures was a global pandemic, as Covid-19 caused four postponements in the championship. The championship was still undecided as Italy’s penultimate match against Ireland, and all three of the final round fixtures, moved from March until October. England eventually emerged victorious after dispatching Italy in Rome, although they were unable to lift the trophy in front of fans as the virus continues to spread. Six Nations postponements are not that much of a common occurrence. However, from time to time they still happen. Over the Five Nations into the Six Nations years, there have been a number of different reasons for postponed games, or in some cases, complete cancellations.Covid-19 is perhaps the most high-profile recent reason for fixture cancellations at the championship, but here are some other instances where teams had to play at a later date below.Five and Six Nations postponements1914The first postponed fixture in the championship was Scotland v France. A riot the year before in Paris caused relations between the two nations’ unions to fracture, cancelling their 1914 encounter as a result. Consequently, the teams refused to play each other in Scotland, despite the championship proceeding as normal.1952England were due to play Ireland at the beginning of February, but King George VI’s death days before the intended fixture postponed the game until late March due to King George VI’s passing days before the intended fixture. 1962A smallpox epidemic breaking out in South Wales caused the postponement of Ireland’s home fixture against Wales, moving from March until November later that year.1972At the height of ‘The Troubles’, the IRA threatened to bomb Ireland’s match against Scotland, which was due to take place just days after Bloody Sunday. Instead, officials left the championship incomplete after cancelling Ireland’s home fixtures against Scotland and Wales.1982 Heavy snow at Landsdowne Road postponed Ireland’s game against Wales, although play resumed just a week later due to a free week for teams.

Founder of Fundraising Camp and co-founder of Researching massive growth in giving. Half of US Internet users plan to give online to a political candidate online The Kintera/Luth Nonprofit Trend Report, the first to produce in-depth research about the online population’s donation habits, was administered in December 2003 to the Luth Research SurveySavvy Panel, a widely recognized online sample source with 2.4 million individuals. A total of 1,751 respondents in the United States completed the survey, which included six questions and yielded a +/-2.3% margin of error. Political Giving HighlightsRespondents were asked a variety of questions about their political giving, including what motivates them to give and what method they plan to use to make donations. * When asked, “How likely are you in 2004 to make a financial contribution to a political candidate or party?” results showed 70% of those surveyed were unlikely; 17% were likely; and 13% were neither likely nor unlikely to make a political contribution. * Of those respondents likely to make a financial donation to a political candidate or party in 2004, nearly half reported they would be inclined to do so through an online donation method. * The Kintera/Luth Nonprofit Trend Report found that respondents more likely to donate to a political party or candidate in 2004 are also active in online and offline philanthropy activities. A comparison between respondents likely to donate and those not likely to donate found: – 38% have been involved in “donating to a nonprofit organization online” – versus 19% for those unlikely to donate for political causes. – 61% have participated in a walk, ride or bike type of fundraising event – versus 49% for those unlikely to donate for political causes. – 39% have solicited funds on behalf of an organization – versus 27% for those unlikely to donate for political causes.“The Kintera/Luth Nonprofit Trend Report offers amazing insight into how Internet users are changing the political process,” said Harry Gruber, co-founder and CEO of Kintera. “As more and more candidates take their message to the online population, they must also understand the spirit and demographics of that population.”Added Roseanne Luth, president and CEO of Luth Research, “We found that among those likely to donate online to a political cause, more than a quarter of the respondents indicated they would react positively to either an email or website content. Based on consumer response to our Luth Research SurveySavvy Panel, a candidate in the 2004 election must reach supporters in ways most convenient to the supporters ¦ including the Internet.” The Kintera/Luth Nonprofit Trend Report, offering in-depth research about the online population’s donation habits, can be downloaded free by clicking on: Kintera Inc.

UPDATED: EPA Announces Changes To Dicamba Registration

first_img Facebook Twitter SHARE Home Indiana Agriculture News UPDATED: EPA Announces Changes To Dicamba Registration By Hoosier Ag Today – Nov 1, 2018 Source: EPA The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced that it is extending the registration of dicamba for two years for “over-the-top” use (application to growing plants) to control weeds in fields for cotton and soybean plants genetically engineered to resist dicamba. This action was informed by input from and extensive collaboration between EPA, state regulators, farmers, academic researchers, pesticide manufacturers, and other stakeholders.“EPA understands that dicamba is a valuable pest control tool for America’s farmers,” said EPA Acting Administrator Andrew Wheeler. “By extending the registration for another two years with important new label updates that place additional restrictions on the product, we are providing certainty to all stakeholders for the upcoming growing season.”Ryan Rubischko, Bayer’s dicamba portfolio lead said that getting this decision from the EPA was much needed.“First and foremost, we’re excited with the fact that the EPA announcement gave farmers and customers awareness that they are extending the label for XtendiMax® Herbicide with VaporGrip® Technology over the next 2 years. We know farmers are making important decisions now for their operations for next season. That’s a critical milestone. In my conversations with growers directly it is the most important one.”State Chemist Dr. Bob Waltz says there are many unknowns right now until EPA releases the actual label.“They’ve kind of talked about things that they are going to change. They’re going to go ahead and make the label use language that is more easily enforceable that means that it can actually be measured and you can say well this is compliance or not. Rather than saying, ‘go forth and do good works’, they are actually going to say, ‘do x and y’.”The following label changes were made to ensure that these products can continue to be used effectively while addressing potential concerns to surrounding crops and plants:Dicamba registration decisions for 2019-2020 growing seasonTwo-year registration (until December 20, 2020)Only certified applicators may apply dicamba over the top (those working under the supervision of a certified applicator may no longer make applications)Prohibit over-the-top application of dicamba on soybeans 45 days after planting and cotton 60 days after plantingFor cotton, limit the number of over-the-top applications from 4 to 2 (soybeans remain at 2 OTT applications)Applications will be allowed only from 1 hour after sunrise to 2 hours before sunsetIn counties where endangered species may exist, the downwind buffer will remain at 110 feet and there will be a new 57-foot buffer around the other sides of the field (the 110-foot downwind buffer applies to all applications, not just in counties where endangered species may exist)Clarify training period for 2019 and beyond, ensuring consistency across all three productsEnhanced tank clean out instructions for the entire systemEnhanced label to improve applicator awareness on the impact of low pH’s on the potential volatility of dicambaLabel clean up and consistency to improve compliance and enforceabilityThe registration for all dicamba products will automatically expire on December 20, 2020, unless EPA further extends it.EPA has reviewed substantial amounts of new information and concluded that the continued registration of these dicamba products meets FIFRA’s registration standards. The Agency has also determined that extending these registrations with the new safety measures will not affect endangered species.Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue released the following statement in response of the EPA’s decision:“It is important that the EPA has decided to renew the registration of over-the-top use of this important weed control technology on dicamba-resistant cotton and soybeans, because it presents farmers with options. This represents the conclusion of a very thorough scientific review, in conjunction with stakeholders, involving site visits and careful consideration of facts. Producers who use this weed control method should review the label, understand why changes have been made, and ensure that all requirements of the label are met when the 2019 use season begins.”Learn more: SHARE Facebook Twitter Previous articleMcKinney Looking for Trade Possibilities in Southern AfricaNext articleRyan Martin’s Indiana Ag Forecast for November 2, 2018 Hoosier Ag Today UPDATED: EPA Announces Changes To Dicamba Registrationlast_img read more
