All speed, no risk

first_img iGaming Business speaks to Gamingtec’s chief executive to better understand the company’s approach to delivering speed and mitigating risk for clients All speed, no risk Email Address Topics: Tech & innovation Sapar Karyagdyyev, the chief executive of Gamingtec, is targeting a series of acquisitions and investments as he seeks to bolster the supplier’s offering to clients.Gamingtec, the London-based company with its headquarter in Kyiv, offers full turnkey software solutions for the igaming industry. Founded in 2013 by Karyagdyyev, a British businessman of Turkmenistan origin, Gamingtec collaborates with game and payment system developers to provide a full service to partners looking to launch in the casino and sports betting business.Gamingtec’s main goal is to increase the speed of services through the use of new technologies and to minimise risks providing high-quality legal expertise to its partners.One of the primary methods of boosting its offering to clients is the identification of promising external suppliers that it can help to develop. Karyagdyyev noted Gamingtec’s investment in sports betting solutions Betby as an example of its strategy.“Because we are in the middle between the B2B client and the B2B suppliers sometimes it makes it difficult for us to improve the product we offer to our clients,” Karyagdyyev said.“So, for example, with sportsbook we work with several providers and offer that to our B2B clients. We are not a sportsbook technology developer and we have limited control of what providers do with their product – they’ll have their own roadmap and plans, perhaps especially when they have their own B2C operation. So perhaps their requirements and goals are different to ours.“To solve that problem we have become one of the largest shareholders in Betby, a very young, exciting and dynamic sports betting company. We just decided that it was the best way to have a say in the development of a sports betting product and its roadmap.“We are also one of founding investors in Plank Gaming. A fast growing and ambitious game development start-up that started developing exciting slot games and their titles are already live with several Tier 1 operators. We expect it to create and integrate innovative solutions to Gamingtec so they will become a competitive advantage of our company.”“We are trying to go upstream to help us solve our problem where we offer our products downstream.”Further investment opportunities are also being assessed.Karyagdyyev added: “We are also looking at the CRM area. We believe all the options out there are out-of-the-box solutions, but that don’t quite offer we want to offer. We are in talks with another CRM company with a view to understanding their roadmap and how we might be able to influence their roadmap so that we can work towards a product that does exactly what we are looking for.” Making it workWhile Gamingtec is patiently assessing the market to identify the best suppliers it can work and associate with, it is also ensuring its client partners are the right fit.Karyagdyyev is keen to differentiate Gamingtec from some of its rivals, who often put the quantity of deals ahead of quality. Gamingtec’s confidence in its partners and its own abilities is proven by its decision to only work on a revenue-sharing basis, meaning it is in both sides’ interests to pursue a symbiotic relationship.“It’s important to be agile and swift in servicing clients in any industry,” he said. “With that comes a trade-off: do we try to serve and launch customers all to be the same so that we achieve efficiency and speed, or do we try to serve fewer customers and achieve efficiency and speed by focusing more narrowly.“We consciously, from an early stage, went down the route of going with fewer partners. We are not trying to launch 10 to 15 white labels each year, instead we’ll look at developing two or three, but do it properly and quickly.“Selecting partners is absolutely key for us. If we work with the wrong partners we’ll spend time and effort on developing something that has less chance of succeeding. We turn more clients down than we work with. If I don’t think we’re a good fit, I’ll tell them straight away.“What are we looking for in a client? Firstly, is knowledge of the specific market they want to work in. We want to know they understand the nuances of the market, any particular complications and how they will attract customers.“Secondly, we want to see evidence that they know how to build and run an ecommerce business. It doesn’t have to be in igaming.” Designed for successBut what is the appeal of Gamingtec for partners?“Most potential clients come to us via referrals – we don’t spend a huge amount on advertising – so they already know about us,” Karyagdyyev said. “Then we start talking to them about our work and processes, and they begin to understand the value of what we offer and that we are not their average B2B supplier.“Because we work on a revenue-sharing basis, and not set-up fees, they can be confident that we will invest our time, money and efforts in building a system designed for success.“We are not the cheapest option, but our clients know that we are investing for future success.”As well as developing its B2B product and selecting further new ambitious clients. Gamingtec is also looking at creating its first B2C project in Portugal, where it is applying for its first operator licence.“When we reviewed Europe in general, Portugal sounded interesting for us,” Karyagdyyev said.“There is a limited number of operators there at the moment and it seems to be set up to protect the existing market. However, we have assessed the current operators’ proposition and product line to consumers and believe we can do a better job and take on the big boys there.” AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Tech & innovation 27th September 2019 | By Josephine Watson Subscribe to the iGaming newsletterlast_img read more

I think this is one of the best FTSE shares to buy now

first_img Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Kevin Godbold | Tuesday, 16th March, 2021 | More on: STVG I think this is one of the best FTSE shares to buy now FTSE SmallCap company STV (LSE: STVG) operates as a digital media and broadcasting business. The firm has a “refreshed” three-year strategic plan to accelerate the diversification of its trading. And the target is to achieve “at least” 50% of operating profit from business lines other than traditional broadcasting by the end of 2023.Why I reckon STV is a FTSE share to buy nowAnd despite the coronavirus crisis, today’s full-year results report demonstrates progress towards that goal. However, the five-year financial and trading record shows advertising earnings have been patchy. There’s no escaping the large cyclical element in the business. On top of that, the sector is competitive. And the reason STV needs to diversify is to catch up with an audience that is migrating to digital channels leaving the traditional broadcasting operations behind. I see such trends as negatives regarding the case for investing in the shares now.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…Nevertheless, today’s figures encourage me. Revenue dipped by 14% compared to the prior year. And adjusted earnings per share plunged 18%. But the net-debt number dropped by 53%. And the directors restored shareholder dividends, saying the move is “a measure of the Board’s confidence in STV’s future growth.”In 2020, STV managed to generate a third of its operating profit from new revenue streams, so it’s well on the way to the 50% target. Digital revenue rose by 5%. And online viewing rose 68% with revenue via video-on-demand (VOD) lifting 12% during the year. However, total advertising revenue dropped by 10%.The company also announced new content deals with Sony and eOne. And the studio division won 19 new commissions in the year, despite the pandemic. Meanwhile, in one measure of progress, audiences grew by 14% for STV broadcasting operations and by 83% on the STV Player.Robust financesThe strong operational and financial performance enabled the company to pay back in full its furlough grant of £1.6m. Happily, STV is one of many publicly listed companies that have been sending coronavirus-related monies back to the nation’s coffers.Adjusted operating profit came in “well ahead of initial expectations” at just over £18m. But that was still a year-on-year decline of 19%, although there was a “significant” improvement in the second half of the year.Nevertheless, STV needed to strengthen its balance sheet in the summer of 2020 with a placing raising a gross sum of around £16m. And in early March, the company agreed to a new £60m revolving credit facility.Looking ahead, the directors reckon the outlook for the business is positive and improving. And I see the stock as one with further to recover following the Covid crisis with the potential for further growth after that if the business can keep on winning digital market share. Although that outcome is not certain.And I’m not expecting progress to shoot the lights out in the years ahead. STV has been struggling for several years. And the share price has essentially travelled nowhere in the past decade.But I’m prepared to embrace the risks in the hope the firm will keep hold of its newly discovered growth mojo. With the share price near 335p, the forward-looking earnings multiple for 2021 is just over nine and the anticipated dividend yield is around 3.7%.Given that forward growth will likely be quite slow, I see the valuation as fair rather than cheap.

The site is located at Pohegaon in Ahmednagar district of Maharashtra. The client approached us to design a shelter where one could have food and rest for a while. Evolution of this design started with understanding and evaluating various contemporary ideas for dwellings with multiple activities in the region. As this shelter is rendered to derive a unique identity for the dwelling and it is to be associated with multiple activities like storing, packing and selling goods cultivated in farmland, cooking facilities and providing temporary shelter for laborers working in farms with needful services. Save this picture!© Rajeshwar Singh, Tanishq OstwalSave this picture!Pavilion Uses PlansIn the beginning, a survey was conducted to find the house form of the region. This resulted in us to understand the evolution of house form from Dhaba (mud slab) house with verandah to Present day gated bungalows (exclusive artifacts) and low-cost shelter typology built in concrete and tin roof.   After this survey of existing houses and their technology of construction, it resulted in us to make use of thin concrete wall with metal pre-fab skeleton lined with the galvanized roof.Save this picture!© Rajeshwar Singh, Tanishq OstwalTalking about these shelters, currently, they consist of a dwelling (to stay) with semi-open space attached to it. But there is no connection between both spac­es. This resulted in disintegration in terms of activities in these houses. The whole process of design started with the question: What should be the nature of the design assembly, which will accommodate a temporal character and will occupy various numbers of people?Save this picture!© Rajeshwar Singh, Tanishq OstwalSave this picture!East and West FacadesSave this picture!© Rajeshwar Singh, Tanishq OstwalIn search of a typological prototype, the key elements of buildings like a base (platform), skeleton (metal framework), roof (corrugated GI sheet) and skin (concrete envelope) are generic materials, which formed, in a way as a design tool and design regulatory principle. While executing the idea of dwelling for tomorrow, the envelope is separated from the skin, which has created a gap to form the visual connection and physical connection with the surrounding. The security is taken care of by the perforated gate, which allows an uninterrupted visual connection. A utility and cooking space is accommodated in the center of the shelter, which separated the living and resting area. Where living space function as multiple spaces, dynamic in nature with the activities. It further extends to the court formed by the separation of the concrete envelope. While in the resting area court function as a connector between resting space and washroom.Save this picture!Longitudinal Section v2Save this picture!North FacadeThis place is influenced by old regional typology proposed on land parcel availed by the demise of trees. Manifestation began with the proposed block, which houses two spaces- living and resting which extends in court with concrete envelope around and a pantry in the center. Design evolved contains a narrow linear space, where verandah wraps around living block, which connects farm on both sides. This forms an identity of an assembly of house form termed as, ‘living –verandah’.Project gallerySee allShow lessMuseum of Troy / Yalin Architectural DesignSelected ProjectsThe Noor e Mobin G2 Primery School / FEA StudioSelected Projects Share Save this picture!© Rajeshwar Singh, Tanishq Ostwal+ 28Curated by María Francisca González Share Year:  ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/911408/assembly-and-rural-house-form-atelier-shantanu-autade Clipboard CopyAbout this officeAtelier Shantanu AutadeOfficeFollowProductsSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesPohegaonIndiaPublished on February 15, 2019Cite: “Assembly and Rural House Form / Atelier Shantanu Autade” 15 Feb 2019.

Improve or reinvent to overcome donor fatigue?

first_img Howard Lake | 22 November 2005 | News Improve or reinvent to overcome donor fatigue? AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis  30 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Reinvention is perhaps slightly more daunting. It involves going back to the drawing board, overhauling your brand and the way you present your cause, how you connect with donors, and what support means to you. Before I go into detail about how to approach each broad course of action, you first need to know when it’s time to pursue which course? Common sense might suggest that smaller charities trying to grow should focus on improvement, whilst larger charities should look towards reinvention, but this is not the case. Even the UK’s largest charities have found that something as simple as a change in creative tone can open up a floodgate of donations. Broadly speaking, whilst you are still seeing growth as you test new messages, channels, processes or products, it’s clear that you haven’t yet reached a point of saturation and there’s still room for improvement. In contrast, when you find that you are putting more money into the same way of doing things and yet your overall efficiencies are falling, it’s time to go back to the drawing boardroom and start the process of reinvention.An example of reinvention in process is WWF, which started as a charity that aimed to protect endangered species. In recent times it has widened this remit to include environmental issues to bring in new supporters. The new, broader remit represents a smooth transition rather than a messy or complex relaunch as it is clear that without a sustainable environment, no species would survive.As charities tend to be relatively conservative in response to change, reinvention is certainly daunting. But remember, someone had to run the first regular giving programme, someone had to make the first DRTV appeal, and once upon a time there was no such thing as a charity fun run.In reality, however, it is never a case where you have to choose one route exclusive to the other. At any one time, charities should be focusing seventy per cent on improvement and thirty per cent on testing new ground.But let the improvements commence. In the next column I will focus in detail on making the most of media channels.Leo Rayman is planning partner at marketing communications consultancy Zalpha.center_img In the second in a series of columns for UK Fundraising, Leo Rayman of Zalpha, looks at two responses to combating donor fatigure.In my previous column I suggested that charities concerned with apparent donor fatigue faced two possible courses of action – improvement or reinvention. Improvement means sticking to the knitting – overhauling your current strategy to ensure that you are maximising the use of media channels, creative execution, processes and products.

Court imposes “unjust and dangerous” prison sentence on provincial newspaper correspondent

first_img EcuadorAmericas News News April 10, 2020 Find out more RSF_en Two months before Assange’s extradition hearing, RSF calls for his release on humanitarian grounds and for US Espionage Act charges to be dropped The 60-day prison sentence passed by the high court of the central province of Cotopaxi on Nelson Fueltala, the correspondent of the La Gaceta daily newspaper and Radio Latacunga, for insulting the mayor of Pujilí was disproportionate and liable to encourage self-censorship, Reporters Without Borders said today.“This court’s ruling is both grossly unjust and dangerous,” the press freedom organisation said. “It is unjust because prison sentences should never be passed in this kind of case. It is dangerous because it poses a threat to free expression for the Ecuadorean press and, as a result, fosters self-censorship. We hope the supreme court will overturn this decision and, in the process, establish a legal precedent.”A report Fueltala wrote for the 2 June 2006 issue of La Gaceta quoted comments by then municipal commissioner Ricardo Estrella criticising Pujilí mayor Marcelo Arroyo Ruiz. The mayor brought a complaint before a local court, which acquitted Fueltala.His acquittal was overturned on 6 March by the high court, which ordered Fueltala to pay 70 dollars in damages and sentenced him to 60 days in prison. The ruling has triggered an outcry in the Ecuadorean media. The municipal commission called it “a violation of human rights in a democratic country.”Fueltala’s lawyer, Luis Carrillo, immediately appealed to the supreme court in Quito, which agreed on 13 March to consider the case although it has not yet set a date. Fueltala does not have to begin serving the sentence as long as the appeal is pending.Journalists demonstrated in support of press freedom outside the town hall on 28 March. They were joined by police, and together they continued the protest outside the Cotopaxi provincial high court building.

Appeal court recommends a year’s imprisonment for director of El Watan

first_img News In a letter addressed to the Justice Minister, Ahmed Ouyahia, Reporters Sans Frontières (Reporters without Borders – RSF) protested against the sentence recommended by the prosecutor of the Court of Appeal in Algiers for the director of the private daily newspaper El Watan, Omar Belhouchet, for “attacking official bodies”. Reporters Sans Frontières reiterates that in a document dated January 18, 2000, Abid Hussain, UN Special Rapporteur on the Promotion and Protection of the Right to Freedom of Opinion and Expression asked “all governments to ensure that those committing press offences no longer risked prison unless they involved offences such as racist comments or incitement to violence (…) imprisonment to condemn the peaceful expression of opinion constitutes a serious violation of human rights”. “It is obvious that this case has been brought up again in the context of the recent campaign against journalists”, stated Robert Ménard, Secretary-General of the organization. Algeria : Reporter jailed after covering Tuareg protests in southern Algeria Organisation Algeria pressures reporters by delaying renewal of accreditation AlgeriaMiddle East – North Africa AlgeriaMiddle East – North Africa According to information obtained by RSF, on February 17, the prosecutor of the Appeal Court of Algiers demanded a year’s imprisonment for the director of the private daily newspaper El Watan, Omar Belhouchet, charged with “attacking official bodies”. The case has been taken under advisement and judgment will be rendered on March 4. Omar Belhouchet was sentenced at the court of first instance on November 5, 1997. He was charged by the public prosecutor for opinions expressed in September 1995 on the French television channels TF1 and Canal Plus. Questioning the assassination of Algerian journalists, the director of El Watan had not excluded the involvement of the “power elite”. When he was questioned on February 18, Belhouchet stated that his views were “not aimed at any official body or State institution”, but he did not exclude the “political and financial mafia’s involvement in some assassinations of journalists”. According to RSF, fifty-seven journalists were assassinated between 1993 and 1996 along with around forty other people employed in the media. Responsibility for most of these assassinations was claimed by various armed Islamic groups. Nevertheless, as far as RSF is concerned, the circumstances surrounding some of these assassinations remain unclear and raise numerous questions.

However, your pledge is contradicted by the suspended sentences of six months in prison passed on 6 February on two Al-Ayyam journalists on a charge of defamation in connection with a cartoon that members of your party regarded as offensive.Those sentenced were the daily newspaper’s editor, Akram Haniyeh, and his cartoonist, Bahaa Al-Boukhari, while the newspaper itself has been banned from distribution in the Gaza Strip. We urge you to have these sentences overturned as they could make it even more difficult for journalists to work in the Gaza Strip. We are worried by the fact that, according to our figures, 22 journalists have been arrested since June of last year, 14 have been threatened in the course of their work, 14 news media have been ransacked and three have been censored.We are writing to you about this situation, Mr. Prime Minister, because we consider it to be critical for the future of the Palestinian press. Aside from the fact that a cartoon should be regarded as a matter of free expression and not an as an offence to you or your party, we believe that the differences between Palestinians should not be allowed to restrict the work of journalists.We trust you will give this matter your careful consideration.Sincerely, June 3, 2021 Find out more May 16, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more

Kid size me for better eating out

first_imgI HAVE said it often and for long enough and thankfully the facts figures are now presenting themselves in the format to support it. Children will eat smaller portions from the adult menu!Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up A recent survey by Nutrition & Health Foundation and Restaurants Association of Ireland shows that almost every parent wants their child to eat what they are having. Backing the claim that many “kids menu” offerings are just not good enough. The two groups came together recently to launch ‘Kid Size Me’ Nationwide initiative.Provision of child size portions of adult meals in restaurants is an important step forward in tackling Ireland’s childhood obesity levels and is at the heart of a new joint initiative called ‘Kid Size Me’ from the Nutrition & Health Foundation (NHF) and the Restaurants Association of Ireland (RAI). The initiative aims to ensure children have access to healthier food options when dining out by making child size portions of adult meals available as an alternative to ordering from the standard children’s menu.  Participating restaurants will carry the new ‘Kids Size Me’ symbol on their menus and over the coming weeks consumers can log on to www.wheretoeat.ie to see a list of participating venues. New research entitled ‘Eating Out With Children’, commissioned by the NHF, indicates the scale of demand for child size portions of adult meals with 98% of parents surveyed supporting the move.  80% of parents state they have dined in a restaurant or café where child size portions of adult meals were available in addition to the standard children’s menu.  However, 3 out of 5 (58%) of those surveyed only became aware of this option by requesting it from restaurant staff as the offering was not advertised.    Linkedin Previous articleIrish firms warned cybercrime is viralNext articleComedy, concerts and drama at Terryglass admin Facebook NewsKid size me for better eating outBy admin – August 4, 2011 707 WhatsAppcenter_img Advertisement Email Print Twitterlast_img read more
