Stuart Rose set to join Bridgepoint

first_img Stuart Rose set to join Bridgepoint The controversial M&S chairman will take a place on the Bridgepoint advisory committee, which is chaired by former chief secretary to the treasury Alan Milburn.A Bridgepoint spokesman told City A.M. Rose is joining “an interesting group of other distinguished personalities” on the committee, including a former French finance minister.The move will surprise analysts who expected the colourful figure to return to a top job at a listed company.He attracted criticism for accepting a role as both chairman and chief executive, as well as for his £4.3m pay package. He will leave the retailer on 4 January next year. M&S last month named veteran City heavyweight Robert Swannell as Rose’s successor as chairman. He will join the board on 4 October as a non-executive director and become non-executive chairman on 4 January.Former boss of Wm Morrison Marc Bolland succeeded Rose as chief executive in May.

Flutter to migrate all betting brands to PPB platform

first_imgCasino & games Email Address Flutter Entertainment’s integration of The Stars Group business will see it migrate all sports betting brands to the solution powering its Paddy Power Betfair division, while it aims to significantly ramp up investment in PokerStars going forward. Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Flutter to migrate all betting brands to PPB platform Flutter Entertainment’s integration of The Stars Group business will see it migrate all sports betting brands to the solution powering its Paddy Power Betfair division, while it aims to significantly ramp up investment in PokerStars going forward.The combination with The Stars Group completed on 5 May, and saw the operator take change of a range of new brands, such as Sky Bet, Sky Vegas and PokerStars.“It also strengthened the breadth of the group’s technology capabilities, with our task now to develop and expand our range of innovative products while delivering the best player protection framework to our customers,” Flutter said.In the three and half months since the deal was finalised, it continued, it had made a number of important decisions over the operation of the expanded business. As outlined in April, it will move to a decentralised – or federal – operating model, with a central group function supporting four regional teams.This will see Sky Betting and Gaming, Paddy Power and Betfair consolidated into a UK and Ireland segment, and PokerStars, Betfair International, Adjarabet and the B2B risk and trading operations merged into the International division.Australia, comprising BetEasy and Sportsbet, will continue as a single unit, while the US division will incorporate FanDuel, Fox Bet, TVG and PokerStars’ US operations. Four divisional chief executives have been appointed – but not yet named – and key leadership roles filled, with financial results to be broken into these segments from 2021 onwards.Technology integration, meanwhile, will be driven by protecting the momentum in each division going forward. Following a review of the available options, Flutter has concluded the business will be best served by using Paddy Power Betfair’s online sportsbook platform as its global platform.This will result FanDuel being migrated to the solution, which incorporates proprietary technology and SG Digital’s OpenBet.This would suggest the Fox Bet and BetStars sportsbooks operated by The Stars Group, which have been powered by Amelco since 2015, will shift to the platform, while FanDuel will migrate away from GAN and International Game Technology. FanDuel’s deal with IGT was expanded earlier this month, to cover all regulated US states.The integration of the business is most advanced in Australia, where Flutter has opted to pursue a single-brand strategy, with BetEasy customers migrated to Sportsbet as a result.“Across the remaining divisions, detailed reviews are well advanced to determine our brand, product and technology strategies,” it said. “Once completed we will move swiftly to execute on our plans, just as we have in Australia.”Efforts will also be taken to improve the quality and sustainability of the business.“We said at the time of the merger announcement that we would review the compliance standards and market exposures of the combined group once the transaction was complete,” Flutter said. “Where standards differed from those of Flutter, we aimed to adopt the higher of the two.”This review fell into two broad categories; assessing the quality of The Stars Group’s responsible gambling and anti-money laundering procedures, and the legal, regulatory and tax risk associated with each international market. The review is ongoing, though Flutter has already flagged a number of areas in which improvements are necessary.This has seen its enhanced protocols implemented across Stars’ brands, while it has withdrawn the acquired brands from “a small number” of jurisdictions that Flutter had previously determined it would stay out of. These withdrawals will reduce annual income by around £65m, it noted.Looking ahead, a particularly focus will be investing in PokerStars. Flutter said that prior to the combination with Stars, it believed that the business’ high profit margins were driven, at least in part by underinvestment. Having worked to better understand the business post-acquisition, ti has now set out three key areas for additional investment.This will see sales and marketing investment ramped up. As a percentage of Stars’ revenue, this amounted to just 14% in 2019, compared to an industry average of around 25%, while casino revenue growth had been driven entirely through cross-sell form poker.Promotions, such as free bets, are also likely to be ramped up, following five years in which these rewards have been reduced. While Flutter acknowledged that this was done to focus on customers that enhanced the liquidity of its poker ecosystem, it said it would look to strike a balance between effective promotions that drove sustainable customer growth.Finally, Flutter said it would look to overhaul PokerStars’ product, technology and customer experience.“It is clear that the customer perception of the PokerStars product lags behind competitors in a number of jurisdictions and we have work to do to address this,” the operator explained. “We are looking at ways in which we may be able to accelerate development work on product and operational improvements to address these gaps and to build increased flexibility into the technology stack.The sportsbook product was also in need of a refresh, it added, something that would be addressed through the migration to the Paddy Power Betfair platform.The business may also look for additional M&A opportunities going forward, provided they “further enhance the growth profile and diversification of the group”.“Given the strength of our presence in our core markets (e.g. UK, Ireland and Australia), it is more likely that such transactions will be pursued by our International division,” it added.
The strategy update was published alongside the operator’s results for the first half of 2020, which revealed a 49% year-on-year rise in reported revenue to £1.52bn, with the business’ expansion and diversification offsetting the impact of novel coronavirus (Covid-19).Image: Flutter Entertainmentcenter_img Topics: Casino & games Sports betting Strategy Tech & innovation Poker Tags: Card Rooms and Poker Mobile Online Gambling 27th August 2020 | By contenteditor AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterlast_img read more

Should I buy Oatly shares today? Nadia Yaqub | Tuesday, 25th May, 2021 | More on: OTLY center_img Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Image source: Getty Images Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! Oatly (NASDAQ: OTLY) shares made their NASDAQ debut last week through an initial public offering (IPO). With all the buzz surrounding the stock, I think it’s worth taking a closer look at the company.But as always with IPOs, I’ll be sitting this one out for now and watching how investors respond to the shares in the coming weeks. I certainly don’t want to over-pay.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…Oatly shares: an overviewOatly is the world’s largest oat milk company. It was founded in the 1990s in Sweden, where a group of scientists at Lund University were exploring the mechanisms and effects of lactose intolerance.It launched its first oat milk product in 2001 under the Oatly brand and the rest is history. The company has grown phenomenally and its plant-based products are stocked around the world in more than 20 markets in some 60,000 retail doors and 32,200 coffee shops.Oatly shares listed at an IPO price of $17 giving the company an initial valuation of $10bn. Not bad for a plant-based company.Bull caseThere are a few things that I like about Oatly shares. The first one is that it’s an easy company to understand. It sells plant-based products globally. And that’s it. Pretty simple.The IPO proceeds will be used to expand into new markets, offer new products and increase manufacturing capabilities. It already sells oat-based yoghurt and ice cream. I like that the brand is at the forefront of plant-based products and is recognised by many consumers.It’s also worth noting that it always helps when a newly-listed company has a raft of celebrity investors. Oprah Winfrey, Natalie Portman and former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz are some of the well-known names who have already backed Oatly. This should help with brand awareness going forward.I also like that the plant-based industry is a fast-growing one. According to Oatly, the overall global dairy market totalled approximately $600bn in retail value as of 2020. In other words, if the company can even have a small share of this total addressable market, then it’s onto a winner.There’s a seismic shift happening right now. The company has successfully created a new generation of plant-based consumers by converting traditional dairy milk drinkers. And I expect this trend to continue.This is already demonstrated by Oatly’s rapidly increasing revenue. In 2020, it generated sales of $421m versus $204m in 2019. That’s a staggering growth of 106% in one year.  Bear caseBut I do have some concerns regarding Oatly shares. The first being that the company is unprofitable. It incurred losses of $60m in 2020 and $36m in 2019.I understand that it’s ramping up expansion and so profits will take a hit. But I’m unclear about its road to profitability. Also there’s a lack of financial data available in the IPO prospectus. So I don’t have enough information on the company’s finances to make an informed decision on Oatly shares.My other concern is competition. I expect this to be fierce going forward as large companies move into the plant-based sector. As my fellow Fool, Edward Sheldon highlighted, consumers giant such as Unilever and Nestlé pose a threat too.So for now, I’ll only be monitoring Oatly shares closely. Nadia Yaqub has no position in any of the shares mentioned. The Motley Fool UK has recommended Unilever.

Single Member Districts: Does Size Matter?

first_img Reply Please enter your comment! Florida gas prices jump 12 cents; most expensive since 2014 One of the arguments against Single Member Districts has been, “Apopka is not big enough.”To evaluate the argument The Apopka Voice compiled a list of 33 Florida cities ranked by population with Apopka being in the middle of the list.  Thus we evaluated 16 cities that are just above Apopka in population and 16 cities that are just below Apopka in population.  These 32 cities comprise what we are calling Apopka’s Peer Group.We then used information on each city’s website to determine the methods used to elect City Council members.The results were as follows:For the peer cities with slightly more population than Apopka:9 used Single Member Districts6 used At-Large Voting1 used a hybrid methodFor the peer cities with slightly less population than Apopka:7 used Single Member Districts8 used At-Large Voting1 used a hybrid methodFor the total Peer Group:16 used Single Member Districts14 used At-Large Voting2 used hybrid methodsThe average population of the cities:Single Member Districts:  44,732At-Large Voting:  42,423Here is a link to an interactive map showing the location of the Peer Group cities:  Peer Group City MapHere is the list of the Peer Group cities:Show 102550100 entriesSearch:City2010 CensusMethod Ms. Reid, good question! I am curious as well. Also, I would be interested in how the percentage of the population as per the census breaks out. Is there an underrepresented population that warrants the need for representation? What is the concern? Is there any information on why now? How is it that city officials are not at least educating us on the pros and cons of this issue, rather than pitting one group against another? Is there a public forum to discuss this issue?

Former Wallaby Wendell Sailor breaks opponents arm in charity arm wrestle

first_imgThursday Jun 11, 2015 Former Wallaby Wendell Sailor breaks opponents arm in charity arm wrestle Former Wallabies winger Wendell Sailor has broken the arm of fellow former NRL player, Ben Ross, on live TV during the rugby league show, The Footy Show. It took place as part of the Iron Arm Challenge, an arm wrestling challenge that was set up for charity. ADVERTISEMENTBeau Ryan, funny man and former player himself, was on hand to call the event, but was clearly shocked at what happened, as Ross appeared to have his elbow dislocated, or possibly ripped the bicep off the bone. It only just happened, so details are scarce at this stage.Now 40-years-old, Sailor switched from Rugby League to Union and went on to play 37 Tests for the Wallabies before making his return to the NRL in 2007.Channel Nine’s Ben Fordham wrote in a tweet that Ross’s injury “looks like a busted bicep”.“Ben Ross is going to be OK, thankfully,” he said. “Just a freak accident nobody could have predicted. Hope he’s better ASAP.”Ross was taken to hospital immediately, and the Nine Network cut to an ad break.It’s safe to say that Sailor was the winner. We wish Ross all the best with his recovery.ADVERTISEMENTSince it happened, Sailor has spoken about what went through his mind at the time.“After he got the start on me, I’ve pushed back. And as I’ve pushed I saw him use his bodyweight a little bit, which you do anyway, to try and stop me coming back to that point,” Sailor explained.“At that stage, that sound, the look on his face, what just happened. It was just gut-wrenching. I thought he might have pulled a biceps muscle. But just to see his arm hanging there, I felt so helpless. I didn’t know whether to pick him up or what to do. There’s so many emotions running through your head.“I’ll never arm wrestle again now. Not even for fun, not even with mates. I used to like to do it for fun but I’ll never arm wrestle again after seeing what just transpired there.”ADVERTISEMENTWarning: graphic content and language Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error See it to Believe it Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Experts explain what actually happens… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Leigh Halfpenny makes yet another… 26 WEEKS AGO Parisse alley-oop magic sets up brilliant… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

House in Leiria / ARX Portugal

first_imgCopyHouses•Portugal Photographs House in Leiria / ARX Portugal Portugal Projects ArchDaily Architects: ARX PORTUGAL Area Area of this architecture project House in Leiria / ARX PortugalSave this projectSaveHouse in Leiria / ARX Portugal Photographs:  Fernando Guerra | FG+SGText description provided by the architects. The house is located in a “typical” peripheral urbanization of Pousos, a parish of the municipality of Leiria. Situated east of the city and at high ground, it works as a sort of panoramic belvedere over Leiria. Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGSo as to assure for more space and complete access to the faraway view, the owners also bought the three lots ahead, over the “cliff”, that were later gathered in a single lot. Although each lot allowed for the construction of a basement and two more stories, usually compacted and isolated in the center of the lot, this assemblage allowed the possibility of having a lower house, which “embraced” flatter portions, with garden space. Save this picture!Floor PlanWhen we went to the place the first time, the streets surrounding the lot had already been made and, because of the earth displacement necessary for the street making, the land rose suddenly, starting from the sidewalk, like a suggestive construction of a topographic nature. On the surroundings, all the neighbor houses were already built and “circled” the lot in an “L” shape. The conception of the house emerges directly from the way we observed this reality. Dealing with a single-family house of large dimensions for local standards, we chose to divide the construction volume in two parts. Half of the construction is buried, like a negative of the land, and assumed as being a part of it. Over that half-land, a second volume is placed, long and flattened, in apparent white concrete. In the inferior volume are located the technical areas, the less used areas or those of support. In the upper volume the socials areas gather around a main courtyard, and the bedrooms around a private second one. Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGAfter all, the main characteristic of this house is the way its dialectical feature comes about: the underground, “natural” half of the building, its upper half, floating and “artificial”, and the life flowing between the two. One face, introverted, intimate, of shadow or reflected light; another, open, glowing, transparent, from where it is possible to enjoy the distant horizon. In the end, all that matters, as always in this kind of project, is to understand the life and personality of those who come to us in need of a house design, and try to give them a new meaning for everyday life.Save this picture!SectionProject gallerySee allShow lessKunshan Huaqiao Forum and Hotel Proposal / Ojanen_Chiou ArchitectsArticlesPeripheries 2011 – 9th International Conference of the Architectural Humanities Rese…Articles Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/172490/house-in-leiria-arx Clipboard Houses Year:  Area:  1010 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project 2011 “COPY” CopyAbout this officeARX PORTUGALOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesHousesPortugalPublished on September 29, 2011Cite: “House in Leiria / ARX Portugal” 29 Sep 2011.

The project consisted on transforming an unused service area of a big rambling house located in the limits of the historic center zone of Cuernavaca city into a studio-dwelling for a young historian. The main objective was to cover all specified necessities assigned to the project with the least possible operations taking full advantage of the existing building and the client’s budget.Save this picture!© Luis GordoaThe studio-dwelling, located over a garage that covers all the front of the lot, has views towards the street on the east side and views towards a garden that leads to the main house on the west side.Save this picture!© Luis GordoaThe transformation lied in the definition of three basic elements: the access tunnel, the integrated carpentry work of plywood and the mosaic of handmade paste. Each of these elements were highlighted by their materiality and contrast with the white used to cover all the walls and original roofs.Save this picture!© Luis GordoaThe access tunnel is an exposed concrete element that serves as a hall to the studio-dwelling, it goes across the studio and it turns into a viewpoint towards the garden of the main house. The access tunnel is a structure that evidences the transformation performed in this space and, because of its apparent finishing touch, will grow old as times goes by, writing a new history of habitability.Save this picture!SectionOne specific necessity to be accomplished within the project, due to the client’s activities, was to have a bookcase that could storage a big collection of books, in addition to flexibility for study and work places. For this reason, a big space was delimited for this task where the bookcase was developed in a perimetral manner, integrating the existing windows in a way that the free space remained. Hidden desks were generated in the zone of the windows to allow multiple uses. Plywood with pronounced grains was the chosen material to emphasize the area and to bring warmth to the space. All the carpentry work of the studio-dwelling was done with the same material using the same height to unify the furniture.Save this picture!© Luis GordoaFor the interior floors a mosaic of handmade paste was chosen. Material that was originally present in a bad state under a vinyl floor in the service rooms. The new mosaics that were chosen have the same yellow color as the original but with a handmade design, thus recovering an old technique and a tradition of this kind of coatings widely used previously in the downtown of Cuernavaca.Save this picture!© Luis GordoaLyeva 506 is an exercise of dialogue between the past and present in one of the most ancient neighborhoods of the city of Cuernavaca, an opportunity to relight and revive the historic center of the city taking advantage of the preexistings and starting from them.

No Local Pasadena Coronaviruis Deaths, But 30 New Cases Reported on Tuesday

first_imgCity officials reported 30 new COVID-19 cases on Tuesday and no new deaths.Increases in the cases are due to back-logged results and more care facility mandatory staff testing.The numbers were reported as the state continued to ramp up the reopening process.Gov. Gavin Newsom cleared the way for barbershops and hair salons to open in counties cleared to move deeper into California’s reopening roadmap, but not Pasadena and the rest of Los Angeles County.LA County — home to roughly half of the state’s coronavirus cases and deaths — has not yet been granted the “regional variance” needed to open more types of businesses. As of Tuesday, 47 of the state’s 58 counties, including Orange County, have been granted those variances, which are based on criteria such as the rate of coronavirus infections and deaths, and availability of testing and contact-tracing.The variances allow counties to move deeper into Stage 2 of the state’s reopening roadmap, most notably allowing the resumption of limited dine-in service at restaurants and in-person retail shopping.“Along those lines, they (counties) will be able to add in barber shops and hair salons to those regional variations starting today,” Newsom said, adding that the businesses will have to operate with substantial safety modifications, such as “appropriate protective gear, particularly face coverings.”Newsom warned again, however, that as more businesses reopen, the danger of COVID-19 spreading will be heightened. 19 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it Home of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadena Make a comment Subscribe Community News HerbeautyBohemian Summer: How To Wear The Boho Trend RightHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyStop Eating Read Meat (Before It’s Too Late)HerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty8 Simple Steps To Catch Your Crush’s Eye On InstagramHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyWant To Seriously Cut On Sugar?
