BetBright closes after 888 acquisition

first_img Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Irish sports betting operator BetBright has shut down its customer-facing site following its acquisition by 888 Holdings. Topics: Sports betting Strategy Tech & innovation Email Address Sports betting Tags: Online Gamblingcenter_img AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter BetBright closes after 888 acquisition Irish sports betting operator BetBright has ceased gambling operations following its acquisition by 888 Holdings. The London-listed online gaming operator will pay £15m (€17.4m/$19.7m) to purchase certain assets of Dedsert Limited, Dedsert Ireland Limited and its affiliates, which together operate as BetBright. 888 has yet to confirm when it expects the deal to be finalised, but it has now been revealed that Dedsert Ireland Limited, trading as BetBright, has shut down operations. In a message posted on its website, BetBright has said that it will cease offering gambling services to customers “on a permanent basis”. Customers will be able to access their BetBright accounts for a period of 30 days from today (March 5) to withdraw any funds or winnings in full. Responding to the news, analysts from Regulus have issued a damning verdict on BetBright and its business plan. Analysts said that since 2013, some £60m has been invested in BetBright, but the fact it was only sold for £15m suggests a “complete business failure rather strategic realignment”. Regulus said the brand’s demise in could be due in part to tax rises in the UK and Ireland, as well as an underlying market slowdown affecting its early-stage growth projections. Regulus also said high investment in marketing can help businesses such as BetBright create an illusion of scale, but said the operator’s low sale price showed that such an approach can collapse if there is no return in this marketing spend. “A big question for the industry now is whether increasing maturity will slow down the rate at which ‘disruptive’ entrants perennially upset the economics of heavy user monetisation (driving organic consolidation), or whether regulatory-technology change will create a new wave of business disruption (pushing the risk of business failure up the food-chain),” Regulus said.Image: Bryan Mills 5th March 2019 | By contenteditorlast_img read more

FTSE 100 crash: 3 reasons why I’d buy dividend stocks in an ISA today

first_img Peter Stephens has no position in any of the shares mentioned. The Motley Fool UK has no position in any of the shares mentioned. Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro. Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. Peter Stephens | Sunday, 19th April, 2020 Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Buying FTSE 100 dividend stocks after the market crash could be a worthwhile long-term decision for income-seeking investors. Certainly, many of the index’s members have reduced, or even cancelled, their dividend payments.But a number of large-cap shares could produce a higher income return in 2020 than other mainstream assets.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…Furthermore, FTSE 100 income stocks could deliver dividend growth in the coming years. They may also produce higher net returns than other asset classes when purchased through a Stocks and Shares ISA.Income returnsThe world economy is facing a highly uncertain future. So it’s perhaps unsurprising many FTSE 100 companies have changed their dividend policies. This trend was seen in the financial crisis, and in previous recessions. It’s a normal response from companies suddenly faced with challenging operating conditions.However, not all FTSE 100 companies are experiencing financial disruption from coronavirus. Therefore, it may still be possible to purchase a range of stocks that offer higher yields than other mainstream assets.For example, cash and bonds are set to yield less than inflation in many cases. Meanwhile, it could be possible to obtain a much higher income return from a basket of FTSE 100 stocks.FTSE 100 dividend growthThe potential for dividend growth across the FTSE 100 is limited in the short run, of course. And those companies that maintain their dividends during what appears to be a likely recession, may adopt a cautious stance towards raising their shareholder payouts.However, over the long run, dividend growth seems highly likely. The world economy has always recovered from its various recessions and downturns to post positive GDP growth. Central banks and governments across the world have already announced major stimulus policies, so the economic outlook could improve over the coming years.This may boost the profitability of FTSE 100 companies and allow them to pay rising dividends that beat inflation. At a time when interest rates are set to remain low, this could make FTSE 100 shares even more appealing. Certainly more than other interest-producing assets such as cash and bonds.Net returnsInvesting in FTSE 100 shares through a Stocks and Shares ISA offers a significant amount of tax efficiency. No tax is charged on amounts invested within an ISA. This could make FTSE 100 income shares more attractive than assets such as a buy-to-let property. Here, recent tax changes mean the net return available to landlords may be substantially below their gross return.Over the long run, avoiding unnecessary taxes on dividends and capital growth could lead to significantly higher returns for investors.Stocks and Shares ISAs are simple and cost-effective to open. I think now could be the right time to buy a range of FTSE 100 dividend shares. They could help you generate a relatively high and rising passive income over the long run.

The London Stock Exchange’s Alternative Investment Market (AIM) can be a great place to look for growth stocks. In this area of the market, many companies are growing at a phenomenal speed.Here, I’m going to highlight three AIM growth stocks I like the look of right now. All three have pulled back recently so I think it’s a great time to buy.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…A star AIM stockOne that strikes me as a buy today is online fashion retailer ASOS (LSE: ASC). It share price has climbed higher over the last year as the company has benefited from increased spending online. However, I think the growth potential here remains substantial. Realistically, online shopping is still in its early days.ASOS posted an excellent trading update last week. For the four months to 31 December, total retail sales increased 24%. The company also advised that full-year profit before tax is likely to be at the upper end of market expectations.However, in a classic case of ‘buy the rumour, sell the news’ the stock has fallen over 10% since this update. I view this pull back as an excellent buying opportunity. The forward-looking P/E ratio is now just 35, which I see as a very attractive valuation.A cybersecurity playA second AIM stock I like right now is GB Group (LSE: GBG). It’s a leading provider of identity management and fraud prevention solutions. In today’s world, in which online fraud is increasing at an alarming rate, I see GBG well-placed for success.The group posted a good set of half-year results in December. For the six months ended 30 September, revenue was up 10% while adjusted operating profit jumped 25%. Meanwhile, the company said it has a “significant market opportunity” supported by accelerating structural growth drivers.“GBG is well-positioned as digital acceleration is now even more a necessity for all companies. For the consumer-facing businesses we serve, key to their success will be making sure they know who and where their customers are,” commented CEO Chris Clark.However, its shares aren’t cheap. Currently, the forward-looking P/E ratio is about 44. That lofty valuation does add risk.  But, overall, I think the long-term risk/reward profile here is attractive.An AIM video game championFinally, Keywords Studios (LSE: KWS) is another AIM growth stock I’d buy right now. It’s a leading provider of technical services to the video game industry.Video gaming has come a long way over the last few decades. Not so long ago, it was a niche hobby. Today, it’s one of the most dominant forms of entertainment across the world. Believe it or not, gaming now brings in more revenue globally than movies and music combined.Looking ahead, the gaming industry is predicted to keep expanding rapidly due to advances in technology and the growth of e-sports. The industry growth should benefit Keyword Studios. This year, revenue is forecast to climb about 20%.I last wrote about Keywords Studios in mid-November. After that article, the stock rose about 40% in the next six weeks. However, this year, it’s given back some of those gains. After the recent pull back, the forward-looking P/E ratio is about 43, which is expensive but not outrageous, in my view. I’d buy this AIM growth stock today. 3 AIM growth stocks I’d buy today Image source: Getty Images last_img read more

Can it recover? Back in February, shares in Argo Blockchain (LSE: ARB) were changing hands at over 280p. The Argo Blockchain share price is less than half of that now. Yet it still shows growth in excess of 2,600% over the last year.I’ve been considering whether the Argo Blockchain share price could reach its February highs again and looking at two reasons it might (plus a couple of less positive factors).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…Bull factor 1: crypto pricesA key driver for the Argo share price has been cryptocurrency prices. Argo, as a Bitcoin owner, has seen its share price gyrate alongside the cryptocurrency. With key influencer Elon Musk sending out seemingly conflicting messages on crypto lately, Bitcoin prices have moved around sharply.That’s a continuing risk for Argo. If crypto falls, its share price could follow. But the flipside also holds. If Bitcoin prices recover, the Argo Blockchain share price could recover too — maybe even back to February prices, or beyond.Bull factor 2: strong managementArgo’s current management is ambitious about growing the company. That has been shown this month, with two Canadian properties added to its portfolio. A plan to build a new data centre in Texas also shows management foresight. The lean environmental footprint could help reduce costs. It could also help insulate the company from criticism about the heavy energy consumption of crypto mining, although I think that critique extends far beyond any one miner.Unusually, management provides shareholders with straightforward monthly updates. This openness has helped highlight the speed and thoughtfulness of the current executive team. That could help boost the share price in future.Bear factor 1: valuation concernsOf course, there are downsides too. What are investor in Argo paying for? The company has a market cap of £487m. But at the end of April, it only held 936 Bitcoin or equivalent. At today’s valuation, that’s worth under £30m. What accounts for the rest of the market cap?The balance sheet doesn’t explain the gap. The company ended last year with total debt of £7.4m. The data centre business and management may merit some premium. But can they justify a valuation close to half a billion pounds? I don’t see the financial logic in such a price so I worry that the share price could be vulnerable.Bear factor 2: speculationA share price that increased over 2,600% in a year sounds incredible. But such an astounding performance can reflect a speculative frenzy. It may well not just be about investors valuing a company on its underlying performance.I do think the business is performing well. Its triple-digit revenue growth impresses me. But I think the Argo Blockchain share price has been driven up partly by speculation.That can work both ways – while it could push the share price up to its former highs again, it could also bring it crashing down. The strong business performance may not offer enough support against determined sellers.As an investor, I prefer to stay away from shares that are subject to heavy speculation. Instead I would rather focus on shares where I see strong business prospects and an attractive entry level. So while I do think the Argo Blockchain share price could recover, I also reckon it could crash further, even after the recent fall. I won’t be touching it.

The greatest centres of all time: Mike Gibson

first_imgIreland’s Mike Gibson was perhaps one of the most complete midfield players of a generation Ireland’s Mike Gibson representing the Lions It was that remarkable perception that made Gibson as dangerous a player in defence as he was in attack. Everything about his game bore the hallmark of genius. His speed off the mark and sparkling sidestep proved just as valuable as his off-the-ball running when covering threatening situations.Later in his career, Gibson the centre was even better than Gibson the out-half because the new position offered him greater scope to choose his options. His finest hours were with the Lions, with whom he made a record five tours. In New Zealand in 1966 he was the standout player in a modest side, playing centre to accommodate Dai Watkins at fly-half in the Test series.But his biggest contribution came in 1971 when, for the only time to date, the Lions took a rubber off the All Blacks. He started at centre outside Barry John throughout that series and his performances particularly impressed Colin Meads, the New Zealand captain, who paid the Irishman the highest compliment by saying: “Gibson’s presence in the Lions back-line was the most frustrating influence of all.” LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS TAGS: The Greatest Players Major teams: North of Ireland, Cambridge University Country: IrelandTest span: 1964-79Ireland caps: 69 (69 starts)Lions caps: 12 (11 starts)Test points: 112 (9T, 7C, 16P, 6DG)He filled the lead role for Ireland and the Lions in one of the game’s longest-running shows, his representative act embracing a then-world record 69 caps and dozen Lions Tests between 1964 and 1979.Gibson’s vision reading the game was first revealed playing outside-half. He was an elusive runner who used a convincing dummy to unlock defences for Cambridge in the 1963 Varsity Match and was fast-tracked into Ireland’s side for the Five Nations.On his debut he spurred them to a convincing 18-5 win against England at Twickenham, where his uncanny instinct to anticipate complex moves several phases before they unwound led critics to describe him as rugby’s equivalent of a chess grandmaster.last_img read more

Implanted on a large agricultural estate, the house is built in the middle of the property’s vineyard on an almost flat terrain adjacent to a cork oak forest. The calm and serenity of the surroundings welcomes the one storey building which tries to interfere as little as possible with the landscape by aligning alongside the natural elements that compose the peaceful backdrop.Save this picture!© João MorgadoThe different functions of the house are organized into three rectangular volumes of similar sizes, each one possessing a flat roof.

This patio is aligned with a larger patio to the south, enhancing a visual crossing that marks the transition to the more private area of the house.Save this picture!© João MorgadoThe demand for sustainable and more ecological solutions were the drive behind the introduction of a Rammed Earth volume, a vernacular building technique still recurrent in some areas of Portugal. The natural beauty of the earth is left visible on the exterior configuring the common areas that include a living room, a dinning area and a kitchen. This materiality also ensures greater thermal and acoustic comfort inside the house, providing a cool environment in the summer and mild in the winter with the indoor humidity constant throughout the year. It is also an ecological construction method that enables a strong fusion with the surrounding environment.Save this picture!© João MorgadoThe remaining volumes consist of a concrete structure, brick masonry walls with external insulation which are plastered and painted white, giving continuity to the existing buildings on the estate.Save this picture!© João MorgadoTECHNICAL DESCRIPTIONThe option to build part of the design in Rammed Earth was due to the confidence in the added value that the technique represents both environmentally and aesthetically.Save this picture!© João MorgadoThe intention was to combine tradition and modernity, seeking to take advantage of the best of each.Save this picture!SectionUsing both earth from the estate as well as earth located 50km away, due to the presence of soil with a high sand content on site, the freestanding walls were erected using continuous wooden formwork and mechanical compression to compact the earth. Two buttresses were introduced on the longer walls in order to improve structural behaviour; to ensure the resistance of the construction against tensile stress. The Rammed Earth was reinforced with fibreglass mesh in-between layers and overlapped in all corners of the polygon.Save this picture!© João MorgadoThe introduction of a fibreglass mesh allowed the construction of continuous earth layers without vertical joints, enhancing the beauty of the material. The building team was knowledgeable of the material and the building technique, although it was the first time that they would leave it visible on the exterior, protected by a flat roof.Save this picture!© João MorgadoThe roof consists of laminated wooden beams that are attached to the upper lintel and covered with a sandwich panel made on site and finished with a clear colour impermeable screen.Save this picture!© João MorgadoCombined with architectural option of a flat roof, the presence of generous openings required solutions that would overcome these constraints. This was achieved using the actual doorframes made of laminated wood which act as a bracing element and as part of the formwork for the Rammed Earth. Finally, to preserve the earth’s appearance in the best possible way, a protective coating of water glass and casein was applied.Save this picture!© João MorgadoProject gallerySee allShow lessCape Horn Illustration Creates Detailed Ink Drawings of Chicago ResidencesArchitecture NewsV Factory Export Division / Zemberek DesignSelected Projects Share Architects: Blaanc Area Area of this architecture project Photographs Area:  319 m² Area:  319 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Vineyard House / Blaanc CopyHouses•Montijo, Portugal “COPY” Save this picture!© João Morgado+ 34 Sharelast_img read more

We expanded a traditional shingled cottage home by marrying a new addition and a renovation project together.  The design reorients the house to the garden, an existing swimming pool, and the bucolic views of the neighboring farm in order to reinforce the relationships between outdoor activities and the surrounding landscape.Save this picture!© Paul WarcholSave this picture!© Paul WarcholSave this picture!© Paul WarcholThe living area, dining area and kitchen were moved from the old cottage into the new addition to establish clear connections to the garden and pool.  The addition creates a new main entrance to the house, drawing guests directly into the most socially vibrant part of the home.Save this picture!© Paul WarcholThe first floor of the cottage was renovated and converted into a family room, home office and guest bedroom suite.  The upper floor was renovated to provide larger bedrooms, a shared bathroom, and a sitting area that overlooks the neighboring farm.Save this picture!Courtesy of Desai Chia ArchitectureSave this picture!Courtesy of Desai Chia ArchitectureOur concept for the addition included a bold interpretation of vernacular forms and materials.  The new addition offers an expressive counterpoint to the old cottage; its form is defined by a powerful, undulating, vaulted ceiling of structural framing that celebrates the living areas.  The architectural language of the original cottage was refined and simplified with a new palette of details and lighting concepts to enhance the flow of light and space. Save this picture!© Paul WarcholSave this picture!© Paul WarcholSave this picture!© Paul WarcholThe clients are thrilled with the design and also the fact that the renovation/addition approach reduced their construction time frame, kept costs down, and met their sustainability goals of reducing demolition waste.Save this picture!© Paul WarcholProject gallerySee allShow lessNow You Can Assemble Your Own Tiny House for Outdoor RecreationArchitecture NewsSoar over Paris, Madrid, Mexico City and More With These Incredible 360-Degree Panor…Articles Share Houses New York Building Technologies Contractor: Watermill House / Desai Chia Architecturelast_img read more
