first_img Email Address William Hill has reported a 31.7% year-on-year decline in revenue for the first half of its financial year, though a £230.7m value added tax (VAT) refund allowed the operator to post a £115.6m net profit for the period. Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter William Hill has reported a 31.7% year-on-year decline in revenue for the first half of its financial year, though a £230.7m (€255.8m/$302.3m) value added tax (VAT) refund allowed the operator to post a £115.6m net profit for the period.Revenue for the six months ended 30 June declined to £554.4m, in a period that saw the operator’s retail business shuttered, and sports betting disrupted by cancellations and suspensions, as a result of the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.The online division provided the bulk of first half revenue, and actually grew marginally year-on-year, thanks to the strong performance of igaming, which was unaffected by Covid-19. Total online revenue rose 1% to £369.3m, with a 13.1% drop in sports’ contribution to £132.4m offset by a 10.2% improvement in gaming revenue to £236.9m.Online international net revenue benefitted from product developments launched in late 2019, and a general customer shift from retail to online, with some substitution from sports betting. It noted that after a year of struggles in 2019, Sweden returned to growth, while Danish net revenue nearly doubled.Sportsbook stakes declined 28.5% to £1.63bn, though in non-UK markets, had recovered thanks to the return of top-flight football from mid-May. UK staking, on the other hand, was boosted by the return of horse racing and the English Premier League and Championship from mid-June.Retail, meanwhile, saw revenue fall 61.4% to £432.2m. On a like-for-like basis, taking out the 713 shops closed in September 2019 following the introduction of the £2 fixed odds betting terminal (FOBT) stake, and 119 shops that did not reopen following the Covid-19 lockdown, this decline was reduced to 48%.During the first half, 35 shops in Northern Ireland and the Isle of Man were sold to Boylesports, meaning the retail estate was reduced by 33.2%, to 1,541 venues.While this remodelling of the retail estate led to an £81.9m impairment charge, William Hill stressed that retail still had an important role to play in the operator’s future.“With the potential for regulations around advertising to get tighter, the retail estate will play a key role in keeping the William Hill brand in the forefront of customers’ minds,” it explained. “A dynamic approach to the shopfronts, including digital content, has the potential to reach a wider audience.“When combined with the opportunity to train our shop colleagues in the online product offering, the shops have the potential to become support centres for the entire UK customer base,” William Hill continued. “The merger of retail and UK online [divisions], with a single view of our UK customer, is thus the next step in the development of the UK business.”Turning to the US, revenue was down 27.8% at £38.2m, with amounts wagered declining 29.3% to £550.0m. The operator is live in 12 states, but following the completion of Eldorado Resorts’ mega-merger with Caesars Entertainment, has access to 25 jurisdictions in total, as regulation permits.It will look to grow this presence further through its partnership with CBS Sports, which launched after the half year’s end in July with the return of Major League Baseball, the National Basketball Association and National Hockey League.The operator is also rolling out proprietary technology across a number of states, with a new retail platform live in West Virginia, and an igaming offering in New Jersey to follow.“I am delighted with William Hill’s performance in these extraordinary times,” William Hill chief executive Ulrik Bengtsson said. “Our team has been remarkable, supporting each other and our customers throughout the pandemic, and I would like to thank them for their continuing efforts.“We are pleased with the moves we have taken to further strengthen customer protection, sending over 1.2 million player safety messages, and we are fully supportive of an evidence-based approach to the review of the Gambling Act, as suggested by the recent House of Lords report.”Looking at costs in H1, the operator saw cost of sales decline 28.9% to £140.2m, while its cross profit was boosted by a £230.3m VAT refund, after a UK court concluded the tax was incorrectly applied to revenue earned from certain gaming machines prior to 2013. The sum awarded is significantly above the £150m it had initially suggested it was owed.This resulted in gross profit actually rising year-on-year, to £644.5m.The business then recorded £4.4m in other operating income, and operating expenses of £406.6m, down from £547.9m in the prior year. It then recorded a number of exceptional items totalling £93.6m, including an £81.9m impairment charge related to the shop closures, as well as a £1.1m benefit from shop sales, and £9.8m of amortisation charges related to acquired assets.This left a profit before interest and tax of £148.5m, compared to a £38.1m loss in the first half of 2019. Without these exceptional items, profit before interest and tax would have amounted to £11.8m.After £20.5m in investment income – including a further £18.6m in exceptional items – and finance costs of £27.9m, pre-tax profit stood at £141.1m. Once taxes of £25.5m were paid, including a £3.1m benefit from the loss-making operating business and a £28.6m charge on exceptional items, William Hill’s net profit for the first half of the year was £115.6m. Were it not for the exceptional items, it would have posted an £11.1m loss for the period.Bengtsson commented that the first half performance showed its strategy of focusing on customer, team and execution, outlined in February, is working.“Our trading was strong before Covid-19, we controlled costs effectively during lockdown and we have recovered well post-lockdown with good performances in our online businesses throughout the first half,” he said. “The furlough scheme provided welcome and timely support and meant we could protect the jobs of our 7,000 UK retail colleagues. Therefore, given the strength of our recovery post-lockdown, we have decided to repay the furlough funds.”This will see the operator pay back £24.5m to the UK government.“We have continued to develop both our technology platform and our product offerings, with more significant enhancements to come in the second half,” Bengtsson added. “The balance sheet has been strengthened by the prompt actions we took to keep cash in the business, the successful placing, and the recognition of the VAT refund.“As a result, we have the financial strength to confidently pursue our growth agenda, taking advantage of our market leading position in sports betting in the US, and the terrific opportunity that Eldorado’s merger with Caesars brings.”      VAT refund boosts William Hill profit after H1 Covid-19 hit AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Tags: Mobile Online Gambling OTB and Betting Shops Topics: Finance Sports betting Strategy 5th August 2020 | By contenteditor Finance Regions: Europe UK & Ireland Nordics Denmark Swedenlast_img read more

Sam Carriere, director of Communications and Information Resources and Resources for Mission, shared this news with General Synod staff on Dec. 13.Editor since 2009, Ms. Jenkins will leave the Anglican Journal on Jan. 7, 2013 to become director of advancement at Albert College in Belleville, Ont.“It is my feeling, supported by advice I have sought and received, that I should not engage in a formal search and hiring process for an editor of the Anglican Journal until next year’s restructuring work is behind us, at the earliest,” said Mr. Carriere in an email to staff.In November, the Council of General Synod passed a transitional budget for 2013 and agreed to establish a more conservative budget for 2014 in response to declining revenues. Throughout the next year, General Synod leadership will consider ways to restructure the national office, including the Anglican Journal.In the meantime, the Journal will be led by three staff:Archdeacon Paul Feheley will serve as managing editor, assuming overall responsibilities for staff management, assignments, newspaper content, and day-to-day activities. Mr. Feheley will continue in his current position as the Primate’s principal secretary. He has previously served on Anglican Communion communication teams at the Lambeth Conference, the Primates’ Meeting and the Anglican Consultative Council.Bev Murphy will become the Anglican Journal’s business manager. Ms. Murphy will continue as General Synod’s senior manager of communications and now also oversee all aspects of the newspaper’s finances, including revenues, advertising, and liaising with Heritage Canada, which provides a major grant to the newspaper.Sam Carriere’s role will be at arm’s length, serving as a consultant for the managing editor and business manager, as needed.“I considered a number of temporary or interim possibilities to provide the Journal and its staff with leadership, direction and support. I also took as a given that existing Journal staff are quite capable of producing the newspaper within the present configuration,” said Mr. Carriere in his email to staff.“The skills needed for the interim period, in other words, are more management and leadership skills than traditional journalistic skills, though some of the latter is, of course, essential.”The Anglican Journal is the Anglican Church of Canada’s editorially independent newspaper, founded in 1875.– Ali Symons is General Synod senior editor.

When she is not out reporting she is most likely at a Krispy Kreme drive-through or in an aisle at Barnes & Noble. Emily Laffhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/emily-laff/ Emily Laffhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/emily-laff/ printTCU got a taste of Vietnam Friday evening as its largest group of international students shared parts of their culture on campus.The Vietnamese Student Association (VSA) allows people to experience Vietnamese culture through fun games, Vietnamese dress and traditional Vietnamese snacks, especially boba tea or “bubble tea,” a Taiwanese tea-based drink popular in Vietnam.VSA President Tu Huynh said the club’s mission is to represent the Vietnamese students’ voices on campus and enhance TCU’s student unity.“We want to improve the cultural awareness of TCU,  so we are here to introduce our culture to other people,” Huynh said.According to the 2014 TCU Fact Book, five percent of TCU students are international. The majority of international students at TCU come from Vietnam –more than 97 students this year alone.VSA is also made up primarily of international Vietnamese students.Phat Do, a first-year member of VSA, said events like Friday’s Vietnamese Game Day are important to raise cultural awareness, especially because of the number of Vietnamese students on campus.“Personally, our organization believes that cultural competency is very important, especially when Vietnam is increasingly popular in Fort Worth and Texas,” said Do. “Because of the rise of population and influx of Vietnamese students here, we believe that spreading awareness will help TCU students a lot.”Students walked around each booth in the commons and dressed up in traditional, silky Vietnamese garments, posing for pictures in front of Frog Fountain. They also played a game of hitting a row of balloons while wearing a blindfold.Huynh said the balloon game was a modification of a game in Vietnam called “Dap Nieu” where people use bats to hit ceramic pots, somewhat like hitting a piñata.“We have games that are kind of like versions of traditional games because we don’t have the tools here to make it super traditional, but they are similar,” Huynh said.Faculty and staff members mingled with students in attendance at the event.Kayli Burnett, the Robert Carr Chapel Events Coordinator, is a member of Beyond Borders, which helps international students acclimate to life in America. Burnett said she was attending the event to support her “mentee,” Phat Do, and immerse herself in Vietnamese culture.With Do’s help, Burnett sampled different Vietnamese drinks.Burnett also said  it has been a nice exchange learning about Do’s culture.“Phat has been introducing me to some new restaurants and culture and I’ve been helping them get adjusted to Fort Worth and Texas culture, it’s rewarding.” said Burnett.Jeff Waite, the director of marketing and communications in the Neeley School of Business, also volunteers with Beyond Borders and said he believes in the importance of learning about new cultures.“It’s learning and having an appreciation, we are all the same but we all have some unique differences so it’s fun to find out what those differences are,” said Waite.Waite said he hoped students would take the event as an opportunity to break barriers with people unlike themselves.“It would be nice to break any barriers,” Waite said. “I hope that the international students become more welcomed, and that there will be an openness between the international students and the American students to get to know each other — not just as fellow students but to get to know their other cultures.”Jeff Waite tried on traditional Vietnamese clothing.For many international students, TCU is their first experience of America. First-year student Xuan Quach is majoring in business and is originally from Vietnam.“I’m missing the people around me and traditions like this, in America we usually don’t have this,” Quach said. “It reminds me of my hometown and makes me feel like homesick.”“I hope that for Vietnamese students they will find themselves in the games and each of the activities, and for the Americans or other international students, they will learn more about Vietnamese traditions that we want everyone to know about.”Junior Crichelle Brice said stumbling upon the VSA event turned out to be an eye-opening experience.“It’s definitely a cultural experience,” Brice said. “I’m terrified of balloons and I hit the balloon. I also liked trying the drinks and the taste testing.”VSA even reached members of the Fort Worth community who do not attend TCU.Chris Kiris came with Charissa Macdonald, a TCU senior speech pathology major.“It’s kind of cool to see how American culture and Vietnamese culture are not different at all, but at the same time they have just a little bit of differences to make it really cool,” said Kiris.It is events like Vietnamese Game Day and the Amazing Vietnam program, which VSA holds in the spring, that earned VSA the “Most Innovative Program” title during the Annual Intercultural Banquet in April.For former VSA president and current senior Huy Le, these events are meant to bring students out and re-define the way Vietnamese students are viewed on TCU’s campus.“A lot of people think that we are really passive and think we don’t  want to get involved on campus but we are totally different,” Le said. “We really want to make an impact, we want to tell people about our culture so people know and then welcome them to join us.”Students took pictures in front of Frog Fountain wearing Vietnamese clothing.

first_imgLimerickNewsAdvice from ifac for Limerick pension fund investors: COVID-19 impact on pension fundsBy Staff Reporter – March 16, 2020 361 Donal Ryan names Limerick Ladies Football team for League opener Limerick’s National Camogie League double header to be streamed live Investors are spooked and so far, any emergency fiscal and monetary packages have not been enough to stop the large sell-off. But what impact has this had on Pension funds?Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up What effect has COVID 19 had on my pension funds?Pension funds, clearly, have been affected by these sharp falls in share prices. The extent of the impact will be largely down to the risk level of the fund/s you are invested in. Most pension funds are invested into a mix of assets, and some may have as little as 20%-30% invested in stock markets.A key point to note is that stock market returns over the last 10 years have been very good to investors. Despite the sudden drop this week, the S&P 500 has grown by 7.8% per annum. Since August 2016, the S&P 500 has returned 8.2% per annum. Remember, sharp drops make the news, steady growth doesn’t.Should I switch to a Cash fund?What your current fund value is telling you is that if you sell your assets today, this is the price that you will receive for these assets. At this point, it is a paper loss. The loss will only crystallise if you panic and switch to cash. If you are worried about this, you can talk to our experienced Advisors.Could things get worse?Some feel that it will be harder to control the virus in western economies (compared to China). That it’s still too early to gauge the effect on businesses and that firms will be stretched financially, which could lead to job losses or closures.Conversely, history has shown that this type of sharp sell-off involves a heavy dose of fear and an over-reaction by investors. Central Banks have cut interest rates and governments are providing significant fiscal supports. So yes, prices could fall further but it is also possible that the worst has been priced in.How long could this last?Confidence levels that the virus is being contained will be key. If the number of cases being identified daily, reduces, then fear levels should subside and normal stock market valuations return.Is there an opportunity here?Unless you are approaching retirement age, a pension investor should see themselves as a buyer of assets. As such, you want a reduction in the price you are paying for these assets. You want more for your money. The sudden drop in stock market prices provides a discount.If you were planning to make a pension contribution this year to reduce last year’s tax bill, perhaps now is the time to act.As quoted by Warren Buffett, one of the most successful investors of all time; “Widespread fear is your friend as an investor because it serves up bargain purchases.” Summary: Print TAGSCoronaviruscover 19Keeping Limerick PostedlimerickLimerick Postpension funds Facebook Initial reactions of worry to the recent headlines are normal. Closer inspection for many pension plan holders will show that the impact on their plans is not as severe. The advice at these times is, don’t panic. Your pension plans are long term investments and deserve a long-term approach. If you want to review the impact on your Pension plan, we’d love to help.
