Live dealer In June, Evolution tabled a SEK19.6bn ($2.11bn/€1.87bn) offer for the casino game developer, which it said showed its intent to become “the world leader in the online gaming industry”.The offer works out at SEK79.93 per share and Evolution said at the time that 20% of NetEnt shareholders had already indicated they will accept the offer, while NetEnt’s board of directors unanimously recommended other shareholders approve the bid.The acceptance period for this offer was initially scheduled to expire on 30 October, allowing the deal to be finalised by 2 November. However, this period has now been pushed back by just under four weeks, with settlement of the deal expected to begin on 1 December.The extension will allow the CMA to examine whether the deal could lead to a “substantial lessening of competition” in the British igaming market.The CMA announced on 22 September that it had opened the investigation and closed its invitation for interested parties to give comment on 5 October. The Authority will analyse these responses and announce whether the investigation will proceed to a second phase on or before 16 November.“As a result of the timing for the CMA process, the board of directors of Evolution has resolved to extend the acceptance period for the offer up to and including 20 November 2020,” the Evolution board said. Other than the extension of the acceptance period, the terms and conditions of the offer remain unchanged.”Malta’s Competition and Consumer Affairs Authority has already approved the deal, giving it the green light on 29 September.

Elys revenue grows but slips to Q1 loss amid US expansion costs

first_imgAfter paying $3.3m in tax to the Agenzia delle dogane e dei Monopoli (ADM) and receiving $92,000 in betting platform service fees, it was left with $14.1m in net gaming revenues, up 39.2%. “We are more encouraged than ever by the outlook for the business both in Europe and as we plan our expansion into North America, especially as and when the pandemic begins to wane and land-based operations resume,” executive chairman Michele Ciavarella said. “Given the successful track record in Italy, we believe that we are ideally positioned to become a competitive player as regulations evolve, opening up new markets across North America and Europe.” The business then paid $225.8m in winnings for gross gaming revenue of $17.4m, up 48.8%. Of this total, $15.7m was made online, up 149.0%, while land-based revenue declined 69.7% to $1.7m. 14th May 2021 | By Daniel O’Boyle Operator and supplier Elys Game Technology – formerly Newgioco – brought in $14.1m (£10.0/€11.6m) in revenue, up 39.1%, but slipped to a loss due to its expansion in the US and the effects of low margins on expenses. Elys’ revenue came on turnover of $243.2m, up 109.4%. Of this total, the vast majority, $231.3m, up 148.6%, was from online betting. The remaining $11.8m, down almost exactly 50%, came from retail bets. “As illustrated by record revenue of $14.2 million for the first quarter of 2021, a 39% increase in revenue over the same period last year and on a combined record quarterly wager turnover of approximately $243 million in Q1 2021, the disciplined growth strategy we previously set out has been executed extremely well,” chief executive Matteo Monteverdi, appointed in November 2020, said. Topics: Sports betting Tech & innovation Online sports betting Product & technology Retail sports betting Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Elys then paid $339,000 in tax for a $610,000 net loss, compared to a profit of $158,000 the year prior. A further $4.1m of costs were classed as general and administrative expenses, with a 47.1% growth largely reflecting an increase in stock-based compensation and corporate salaries, many of these related to expansion in the US.center_img However, the business incurred costs and expenses of $14.8m, up 64.4%. Of this total, $10.7m were selling expenses such as commissions to sales agents. As this commission is based on handle rather than revenue, lower margins made these expenses more significant.

The residential development project Les Terrasses Cap-à-l’Aigle was born from a passion for the great open spaces and natural beauty of the Charlevoix region in 2009. Florent Moser and Alain Rajotte, both entrepreneurs as well as ardent lovers of the region, have created a unique residential development project that unites nature and architecture to provide a haven of peace and rejuvenation for its future owners and tenants. Save this picture!© Ulysse Lemerise BouchardRecommended ProductsDoorsGorter HatchesRoof Hatch – RHT AluminiumWindowsAir-LuxSliding Window – CurvedDoorsRabel Aluminium SystemsMinimal Sliding Door – Rabel 62 Slim Super ThermalDoorsStudcoAccess Panels – AccessDorWith respect for the environment and the desire to harmonize with nature as the driving forces behind the project, the developers conceived modern, luxury homes that blend seamlessly into the landscape. This major residential development offers hillside lots with panoramic views, surrounding mature forest, privacy, tranquility, abundant natural light, and quality infrastructures. It is a two-phase project, with 60 and 40 lots respectively. Close to half of the lots in the first phase were sold in less than two years. Save this picture!Plan“We have developed a concept that corresponds with our vision of the modern home. In our opinion, every house should be customized in such a way so as to satisfy the needs of the clients while perfectly integrating into its environment. As such, we wanted to create a haven of peace that puts nature at the forefront by playing with natural assets such as slope, sunshine, and panoramic view. Furthermore, our houses are designed by the architectural firm MU Architecture, who share our philosophy,” explains Florent Moser, developer and general contractor of the Terrasses Cap-à-l’Aigle project. Save this picture!RenderingNature: A one-of-a-kind canvas Located in the very heart of nature on a vast wooded hillside, houses in the Terrasses Cap-à-l’Aigle are veritable sanctuaries of rejuvenation. Their simple, minimalist design, in direct contrast with the surrounding wilderness, enhances the beauty of the physical landscape. Save this picture!© Ulysse Lemerise BouchardArchitecturally speaking, the south-west orientation of the houses, in conjunction with their large, bay windows, maximizes the amount of sunshine for optimal energy efficiency as well as affords breathtaking views of the surrounding countryside. In addition to harmonizing with nature, the green roofs serve as natural air conditioning by absorbing heat waves. Save this picture!© Ulysse Lemerise BouchardA “made in Quebec” construction The houses in the Terrasses Cap-à-l’Aigle project are truly “made in Quebec”. With a vast majority of the materials and labour utilized in their construction hailing from the four corners of the province, these houses showcase the superb quality of local workmanship and products. For example, all windows are made of Quebec aluminum assembled in Montreal by the firm Alumilex. The granite used in the Marée Basse kitchen design comes from the Eastern Townships, while the bathroom vanities are made of Laurentian concrete. The Phare residence features machined steel from La Malbaie throughout, including the kitchen décor, the staircases and banisters, some furniture, the bathroom vanities and the central fireplace. Furthermore, the exterior siding of each house in this residential complex is made of wood from Quebec.

Screenshot House is located on a Parian hill with a panoramic view of the eastern Cyclades. The main axes of the house are deformed and rotated, so every space has its own unique view through a variety of openings and volume voids. The result is a distorted composition of stone and white volumes, which is harmonically integrated into the Cycladic rocky and rigid landscape. A central, larger scaled volume contains the living room, the dining room, and the kitchen in an open plan layout and it is directly connected to the main bedroom, which forms another distorted volume. All the other bedrooms are located on the sides of the central composition, having independent entrances and facilities.Save this picture!© Yiorgis YerolymbosSave this picture!AxoSave this picture!© Yiorgis YerolymbosThe difference in the heights of the interior, the orientation of the openings, and the different materials give not only unique views towards the exterior but also a unique character in the interior of every volume.

He was due to be brought before prosecutors.Al Araby TV, an Algiers-based Arabic-language TV channel was ordered to stop working on 22 September after it broadcast a report about the 20 September protests showing placards criticizing Gen.

The prosecution opposed his plea contending that the post shared by him has created disturbance in the said locality and unrest to the administrative wing and the society and that there was commotion in which, two police stations and 57 police vehicles have been burnt and many more properties and vehicles have been damaged. It was further submitted that there are 7 cases registered against him and he is a habitual offender. There is a threat to the life of the petitioner himself if he is released on bail, the state contended.The court noted that the maximum punishment prescribed for the offences under Sections 153(A) and 295(A) of IPC is three years and that investigation is completed and charge sheet has been filed.  While granting him bail by imposing stringent conditions, the court said: “I am of the considered opinion that the apprehension of the learned Special Public Prosecutor that if he is released on bail there is a threat to the life of petitioner himself and it may create unrest in the society can be taken care off by imposing some stringent conditions. Merely on the ground that there is threat to the life of petitioner if the bail application of the petitioner is rejected, it would indirectly affect the fundamental right of the petitioner, when the only allegation against the petitioner is that he has posted some derogatory remarks against Prophet Mohammed in his facebook account and subsequently, the same has been withdrawn. Under such circumstances, by imposing some stringent conditions, if the petitioner- accused is ordered to be released on bail, it would meet the ends of justice.”Case: Naveen P vs State Of Karnataka [CRIMINAL PETITION No.4819 OF 2020]Coram: Justice BA PatilCounsel: Adv N.Padmavathi, Spl.

Latest Quaternary dinoflagellate cyst climatostratigraphy for three cores from the Falkland Trough, Scotia and Weddell seas, Southern Ocean

first_imgDinoflagellate cyst analysis has been undertaken on three Kasten cores taken from the Falkland Trough, Scotia Sea and Weddell Sea in the area of the Antarctic Peninsula. Two of these cores are situated to the north of the maximum sea-ice limit and one, from the Weddell Sea, is sited within the maximum sea-ice limit. The recovered dinoflagellate cyst assemblages underscore the importance of the maximum sea-ice limit as a basic biogeographic boundary for dinoflagellate cyst distributions. Our results also demonstrate that in general the palaeoceanography of the Holocene and Late Pleistocene has remained reasonably constant and reflects present conditions to a large extent. The relatively constant environments, as evidenced within these latest Quaternary sequences, is in marked contrast to the situation within the North Atlantic Ocean where, during the same time span, marked climatic and oceanographic change has been documented from marine, terrestrial and ice-core records. The stability of the Southern Ocean circulation undoubtedly has important consequences on the maintenance of the global thermohaline circulation system over the period since the last deglaciation until the present time.last_img read more
