Puma forced into writedowns after fraud claims at Greek joint venture

first_img GERMAN sporting goods maker Puma said yesterday it would bring criminal charges against its partners in a Greek joint venture after discovering an alleged swindle that could cost it as much as €130m (£115.3m).Puma said it suspected that its “Greek joint venture partner, along with members of the Greek local management, has committed a series of criminal acts” based on the preliminary findings of an audit.“This is about systematic evasion and embezzlement,” said Puma chief executive Jochen Zeitz.He said it was not yet clear how much Puma would seek in damages from its partners, brothers Georgious Glou and Antonius Glou, who own 15 per cent each of the Puma Hellas venture.Officials at Glou, a non-listed Greek clothing retailer, declined to comment. The two brothers did not immediately return a phone call to their office seeking comment. Greece is one of Puma’s ten biggest European markets, with annual sales in the tens of millions of euros.“In the long term, Greece is an important market for us,” Zeitz said, but added that Puma would shrink its Greek business — under new management – to reflect tough economic conditions in the southeastern European country. Greece’s economy has been pummeled as the debt-choked country tightens its belt to slash its sky-high budget deficit. The unemployment rate there has risen to 12 per cent and is set to head to more than 14 per cent next year. Zeitz said Puma, which is controlled by France’s PPR will exercise an option to take over the Glou brothers’ 30 per cent of Puma Hellas and gain full control of the business.

It is the latest sign of a resurgence of acquisitions by private equity firms, which are under pressure to invest billions of dollars of capital raised in the past few years.Private equity takeovers – known as leveraged buyouts – plummeted after the credit crisis limited access to debt financing. But the financing markets have since improved enough for large deals to be struck again. In July, Carlyle announced a $3.8bn deal to buy US nutritional supplements maker NBTY.Under the terms of a what CommScope called a “potential agreement,” Carlyle would buy CommScope for $31.50 per share in cash, a premium of 36 per cent to the shares’ Friday’s closing price, CommScope said.“We consider a deal price of $31.50 fair,” UBS analysts said in a research note. But they added that their “own internal analysis had produced scenarios with a potential take-out value 5-10 per cent higher.”The UBS analysts said they did not foresee any rival telecommunications companies or other logical strategic buyers emerging to counter Carlyle’s bid.Corning, and possibly 3M and Huawei, would be the most likely strategic buyers that would consider a deal, the analysts said. But “we believe either price, size of deal, cultural and regulatory hurdles, would make it difficult to consummate any deal,” they wrote.The deal values CommScope at $2.98bn, based on 94.72m shares outstanding as of 21 July.

Mississippi wagering market sees revenue soar in December

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Email Address Mississippi’s regulated sports betting market enjoyed its strongest month since launching in August, with revenue for December rising to $6.2m, with American football by far the most popular sport in terms of wagering. 18th January 2019 | By contenteditor Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Mississippi’s regulated sports betting market enjoyed its strongest month since launching in August, with revenue for December rising to $6.2m (£4.8m/€5.4m).Revenue soared from November’s total of $1.7m, despite handle falling 6.1% month-on-month to $41.8m, according to figures released by the Mississippi Gaming Commission. The state’s win percentage for the month rose sharply to 14.78%, lower than the highest total of 17.3% reported in September, but far higher than average hold in other US sports betting markets. The market only permits in-person wagering at the state’s land-based casinos.The strong monthly performance was driven primarily by the state’s coastal casinos, which accounted for $3.8m of revenue (61.4% of the market total), and $27.3 (65.4%) of amounts wagered.The vast majority of bets in this region were placed on American football, with $15.3m wagered on the sport, from which the casinos generated revenue of $1.9m.Coastal casino patrons wagered a further $7.3m on basketball, though won heavily, meaning the venues generated revenue of $405,202.66 on the sport, a win percentage of 5.54%.Sports parlay cards also proved popular in the region, with customers wagering $3.2m, and the casinos accruing $1.3m in revenue from the segment. With a win percentage of 40.01% for this product, it was the most lucrative for operators in the state.Misssissippi’s northern casinos, meanwhile, generated revenue of $1.5m from handle of $9.1m, with football again the most popular betting sport. Customers wagered $4.4m on American football at the northern venues, generating $5584,048.76 in taxable revenue.Parlay cards again proved popular, accounting for $2.7m of regional handle and $698,060.14 of revenue.The central region was the smallest in terms of handle and revenue, but still grew significantly from November. Customers wagered $5.4m, with central casinos’ win percentage of 16.79% allowing them to accumulate revenue of $906,129.83.

Danske Spil sees H1 revenue fall after CEGO sale

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter 4th September 2019 | By contenteditor Danske Spil sees H1 revenue fall after CEGO sale Danske Spil has put a slight year-on-year decline in gross gaming income in the first half down to its decision to divest its stake in games development studio CEGO, while rising costs saw the Danish state-controlled operator’s net profit decline. Regions: Europe Nordics Denmark Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Finance Danske Spil has put a slight year-on-year decline in gross gaming income in the first half down to its decision to divest its stake in games development studio CEGO, while rising costs saw the Danish state-controlled operator’s net profit decline.Gross gaming revenue for the six months to 30 June, 2019 amounted to DKK2.49bn (£301.3m/€333.9m/$367.6m), down from DKK2.54m in the same period last year.Danske Spil said that this was primarily due to the sale of its stake in CEGO to the studio’s original owners and the private equity fund Via Equity III. This took place before the end of June, with Danske Spil offloading the 60% stake it acquired in 2014 for an undisclosed sum.In terms of continuing operations, income from Danske Lotteri Spil lottery division slipped from DKK1.37bn to DKK1.24bn, but remains the main source of income for the business.Income from the Danske Licens Spil online gaming division climbed from DKK977m to DKK1.06bn, while the gaming hall and slot manufacturer business Elite Gaming provided an additional DKK188.9m in revenue, flat year-on-year.However, the operator did see revenue from its Swush fantasy sports business fall from DKK8.5m to DKK3.9m.Reflecting on the results, Danske Spil’s chief executive, Susanne Mørch Koch, said she was pleased with the performance in H1, adding that the operator remains committed to enhancing its digital offering. Koch also pointed to the acquisition of Tivoli Casino, the online casino named for the Copenhagen amusement park, as a key highlight in the period.“We have succeeded in maintaining the healthy operation of the company and at the same time continuing and intensifying our digital development, which further strengthens Danske Spil’s position with our customers and helps to grow Danske Spil’s market share,” Koch said.“At the same time, we have completed two large transactions and thus strengthened our core business. Danske Spil took over Tivoli Casino and sold its share of CEGO; a sale that took place on terms that were very satisfactory for Danske Spil and our owners.”Spending at Danke Spil was down from DKK1.78bn in the first half of 2018 to DKK1.67bn this year. Personnel costs were up from DKK136.7m to DKK148.9m, while depreciation and write-downs climbed from DKK81.5m to DKK126.1mDanske Spil was able to make savings elsewhere, with other external costs cut from DKK399.7m to DKK359.9m.However, despite reduced spending overall, profit before tax was down from DKK1.16bn to DKK1.05bn, while net profit for the period slipped from DKK928.0m to DKK872.8m.The opeartor’s chairman Peter Gæmelke described the results as “quite satisfactory”.“We have succeeded in having a solid operation while also making significant changes in the way we do things in Danske Spil,” he explained. “We on the board would like to emphasise that the business has continued its digital transformation, while at the same time focusing on our core business, and remaining the best and most available gaming company in Denmark.“I am pleased that we have also taken significant steps in 2019 to ensure that we live up to these goals.” Topics: Finance Lottery Tags: Online Gambling Email Addresslast_img read more

Premiership player watch: Semesa Rokoduguni, Bath

first_imgAnother scintillating performance against Saracens on Friday evening enhanced Semesa Rokoduguni’s credentials for a full England debut this autumn. We take a look at his showings so far this season. In May, we may well look back on this Aviva Premiership weekend as a watershed for Bath – three days that encapsulated a newfound edge and dogged durability. No longer will they be bullied or pushed around. Mike Ford’s West Country side has found a bit of bite.A 21-11 victory over Saracens on Friday evening spoke for itself. It was a triumph founded on old-fashioned tenacity. Bath outhunted Paul Gustard’s self-styled wolf pack, suffocated them and stormed the Premiership summit.Then Sunday saw a portrait of incoming Sam Burgess’s considerable qualities. Having crunched his cheekbone with his opening carry of the NRL final, the high-profile code-hopper allayed sickening pain and guided South Sydney Rabbitohs to glory on a tsunami of emotion.Burgess racked up an incredible individual tally of 225 running metres and 35 tackles. More than anything though, this game demonstrated intangible attributes – immense charisma, dogged desire, an innate aura of leadership – that he will bring to Bath.Remember, Ford senior still has Carl Fearns and Francois Louw to return. It is tough to imagine them taking a backward step from here; such is the spikiness about the squad.Incoming: Bath are soon to be bolstered by BurgessThe knock-on effect from this abrasive muscle is more eye-catching. A blockbuster backline, led by gain-line slicer George Ford, is positively purring.Kyle Eastmond and Jonathan Joseph are impressing in a sparky midfield partnership  – each snared a try and an assist each against Saracens. Even so, neither managed to snatch the official man-of-the-match award away from a Fijian-born firecracker.In Semesa Rokoduguni, Bath have a diamond. More than that, they have a Test-quality wing who could easily be the wildcard to energise England’s Rugby World Cup bid. While relentless work-rate without the ball paved the way for Friday’s victory, Rokoduguni’s ambitious bursts on the counter catalysed momentum.All told, his fleet feet and deceptive power beat the challenge of nine Saracens defenders. Staggeringly, he only carried the ball eight times. Those figures boosted his overall total for the campaign so far to 22 tackle-busts from 37 runs. That ratio puts him firmly in the category of what Stuart Lancaster calls a “something from nothing player.” You can factor in nine clean breaks in four matches too. That said, while Rokoduguni may need some iffy defensive habits ironed out, he is spectacularly good with ball in hand. From the June series in New Zealand, Lancaster knows one of the final pieces in his jigsaw is a ruthless, clinical attacker. Bath’s bright-eyed wide-man is an outstanding candidate.Read what the experts have to say about Sam Burgess’s switch to union in the November issue of Rugby World – in shops from Tuesday 5 October! Click here for all the latest deals, or find out how to download the digital edition here. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS A reconnaissance tank soldier who toured Afghanistan seven years ago, Rokoduguni is a hugely humble, God-fearing figure. More than half of his post-match interview the other night constituted of him pointing skyward and thanking the big man upstairs. Still, modesty won’t stop what seems an inexorable surge towards a full international debut.Blooded by the Saxons in Scotland this January, the 27 year-old feature for an England XV in June’s Barbarians fixture. Hulking opposite number Hosea Gear caused some problems, but Rokoduguni certainly held his own. And this term, he has hit the ground sprinting.His haul of four tries underlines valuable predatory instincts, no better illustrated by this opportunistic interception for the second score of a brace in Bath’s 53-26 thrashing of London Welsh last month.Hunting the shoulder of fly-half Ford is also proving fruitful, and this short-range effort – just escaping the clutches of Danny Cipriani to skate over in the corner – set up an opening-day triumph over Sale Sharks.However, just as attractive as formidable finishing to Lancaster will be Rokoduguni’s footballing skill, unsurprisingly honed in sevens. As England strive towards an all-court approach played at pace, decision-making such as this, in the lead-up to Peter Stringer’s try against Leicester Tigers, stands out.Not content with searing 60 metres upfield, Rokoduguni remains calm enough to link up with Alafoti Faosiliva, who in turn delivers the scoring pass.Now into the groove for new club Harlequins, Marland Yarde is very likely to be trusted in England’s first autumn clash with the All Blacks on November 8. The second wing slot is up for grabs. Jack Nowell, Christian Wade and Jonny May have youth and time in the set-up on their side. They must be considered front runners.last_img read more

Photo: St. Paul’s Cathedral[Episcopal News Service] Last month’s consecration and installation of the first black female bishop in the Church of England were celebrated by a wide array of Anglican Communion leaders, including numerous leaders from The Episcopal Church.The Rev. Gay Clark Jennings, The Episcopal Church’s House of Deputies president, was joined by West Tennessee Bishop Phoebe Roaf and Connecticut Bishop Ian Douglas, among others, in attendance at the Nov. 19 consecrations of Dover Bishop Rose Hudson-Wilkin and Reading Bishop Olivia Graham at St. Paul’s Cathedral in London. A reception followed at Lambeth Palace, hosted by Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby. Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS Hudson-Wilkin, a native of Jamaica, previously served as chaplain to members of the British Parliament and as priest-in-charge of St. Mary-at-Hill Church in London. Her appointment to succeed Bishop Trevor Willmott was announced in June.The bishop of Dover is technically a suffragan role in the Diocese of Canterbury, though it effectively entails oversight of the diocese, freeing the archbishop of Canterbury to focus on his responsibilities with the Anglican Communion and as head of the Church of England, according to the Anglican Communion News Service.

The outer part of 1st floor is a Patisserie and the inner part is a Cuisine, 2nd and 3rd floor is a Dwelling for a family of four peoples. This house has an aerial wedge in between 1st and 3rd floor, so that upper part of dwelling is looks like floating above a patisserie as a view on street. This aerial wedge will be changing its character as the photic layer with different times – During the daytime it will be a light-well for a patisserie, and the nighttime the lights leaking from this aperture like a treasure box is opened. And we can see a sole of dwelling volume in a patisserie based on its transparent glass roof. The wall of shop along the street is planed to 1.8 meters height and it is gradually being higher toward the inside. That is based on our intention to create a familiar open space like an empty-lot where is just surrounded by low wall.Save this picture!© Daici AnoThis house has an inter-observing relationship between a shop and a floating dwelling space that makes different independent existence in a single building simultaneously. Each space has a particular sense of distance to the surrounding environment. A shop space is a kind of continuous exterior with the streetscape where is only surrounded by low wall. And a dwelling space is more separated form the surroundings where is floating above the street and has non-openings along the street, so that dwellers cannot see other houses directly and vice versa. Additionally, we put a kind of wind-path in a dwelling part that brings the wind and the sounds form the outside to the inside space, and then dwellers can be feel an atmosphere of the street. When we went their previous house for the first time (1st floor was a shop and 2nd floor was a dwelling), a curtain is closed due to concerning about the eyes from street, and they also troubled with the noise of their child’s footstep form upstairs to patisserie. Therefore, we also attempted a solution of those problems in the schematic design.The approach is planed to have an attractive appearance with long length to change the mood between a shop and a dwelling. We intended to change a sense of distance to the surroundings with the situations – such as high public patisserie space and more independent dwelling space, and those senses of distance change the flow of time between the spaces in their life.Project gallerySee allShow lessArdeko / be baumschlager eberleSelected ProjectsBricks Grown From BacteriaArchitecture News Share 2013 Year:  Save this picture!© Daici Ano+ 15 Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/472491/katsutadai-house-yuko-nagayama-and-associates Clipboard ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/472491/katsutadai-house-yuko-nagayama-and-associates Clipboard Houses 2013 Katsutadai House / Yuko Nagayama & AssociatesSave this projectSaveKatsutadai House / Yuko Nagayama & Associates “COPY” CopyHouses, Store•Yachiyo, Japan ArchDaily Area:  80 m² Area:  80 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Photographs Katsutadai House / Yuko Nagayama & Associates Japan Architects: Yuko Nagayama & Associates Area Area of this architecture project Year:  “COPY” Projects CopyAbout this officeYuko Nagayama & AssociatesOfficeFollowProductSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesCommercial ArchitectureRetailStoreYachiyoRetailHousesMixed UseJapanPublished on February 02, 2014Cite: “Katsutadai House / Yuko Nagayama & Associates” 02 Feb 2014.
