Catena Media posts full-year loss of €10.5m for 2019

first_img20th February 2020 | By contenteditor Tags: Online Gambling Affiliate marketing giant Catena Media has reported a full-year loss of €10.5m (£8.8m/$11.3m) for 2019, primarily due to impairment charges related to assets acquired between 2016 and 2018, while all core business units struggled in the period. Catena Media posts full-year loss of €10.5m for 2019 Topics: Finance Marketing & affiliates Email Addresscenter_img AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Affiliate marketing giant Catena Media has reported a full-year loss of €10.5m (£8.8m/$11.3m) for 2019, primarily due to impairment charges related to assets acquired between 2016 and 2018, while all core business units struggled in the period.Revenue for the 12-month period through to 31 December 2019 amounted to €102.8m, down 2.1% from €105.0m in the previous year.Catena noted a 1.8% year-on-year decline in search revenue from €89.9m to €88.3m, while paid revenue also dropped 15.0% to €11.9m and subscription revenue 57.7% to €2.6m.The affiliate giant said revenue share arrangements were responsible for 43% of total revenue for the year, with 40% attribute to cost per acquisition revenue, 15% from fixed fees and 2% from subscriptions. Catena also noted that around 81% of revenue was generated in locally regulated or taxed markets.In terms of spending, Catena has issued a warning earlier this week that higher costs related to certain areas of the business would likely impact its full-year financial performance.Total operating expenses amounted to €108.5m, an increase of 64.9% on 2018 as Catena felt the impact of various additional costs. Direct costs were up 4.6% to €13.6m, while personnel expenses climbed 18.8% to €22.8m, and depreciation and amortisation spend jumped 62.1% to €14.1m.However, Catena said impairment costs on intangible assets totalled €32.1m. As the business noted earlier this week, this write-down was related to assets acquired between 2016 and 2018.These impairment costs included a write-down of €17.9m related to intangible financial assets that are primarily focused on the European Union, as well as €13.2m related to casino assets acquired in 2016, and €900,000 in reference to assets in the sports market.Exceptional costs also included €2.7m for loss allowances on trade receivables, as well as €2.0m for a refinanced bond, and further spending on credit facility and reorganisation costs.Significantly higher operating costs, coupled with the decline in revenue, meant Catena posted an operating loss of €5.7m for the year, compared to a profit of €39.1m in 2018.Loss before tax amounted to €10.3m, down from a profit of €33.1m in 2018, and after paying €178,000 in taxes, loss for the year stood at €10.5m, a stark contrast to €30.8m in profit in the previous year.“As the efforts we have put into our products now show a positive growth trend, we also saw challenges with some of our previously acquired assets not performing as planned,” Catena’s chief executive Per Hellberg said.“In our strategic review, operational efficiency programmes and evaluations of previously acquired products, we are writing down the value of certain assets acquired in the period 2016-2018, which simply can’t perform under today’s market conditions.“Now, with only two earn-out commitment to be settled, and with a strong operating refinancing of the company; we will communicate further details as soon as we have information to give.”In terms of the fourth quarter, during which most of the additional spending took place, revenue was down 2.6% to €26.6m, with year-on-year declines across search revenue, paid revenue and subscription revenue.Q4 operating expenses amounted to €53.8m, up 200.6% on the previous year, which contributed to an operating loss of €27.3m, compared to a profit of €9.4m in 2018. Loss before tax totalled €32.2, in contrast to a profit of €13.1m last year, while loss after tax stood at €31.1m, down from a profit of €12.4m in 2018.“We will continue to execute on our strategy to focus on few brands, invest in new markets, and continue our focus on cost control,” Hellberg said. “We are prepared for continued improvements in 2020 and beyond.” Finance Subscribe to the iGaming newsletterlast_img read more

In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. Investment trusts can be a great way to invest in the stock market. Not only do trusts provide an investor with exposure to a range of different companies, but they’re also very cost-effective.Here, I’m going to highlight five investment trusts I like for 2021. These are my preferred plays for exposure to global equities and UK shares.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…Global investment trusts for 2021In the past, Baillie Gifford’s Scottish Mortgage was one of my favourite investment trusts. However, right now, I’ve concerns over the valuations of many of its holdings. Tesla and NIO, for example, which made up nearly 20% of the trust at 30 November, are very much in bubble territory, in my view.For this reason, my preferred play in the global equity space for 2021 is Monks Investment Trust, Baillie Gifford’s more under-the-radar offering. Like SMT, this trust focuses on growth companies. However, it doesn’t make the same kind of large bets on higher-risk companies in the way that SMT does.Tesla, for example, is a much smaller holding at less than 2% of the portfolio. It also offers exposure to more stable growth companies such as Microsoft, Mastercard, and Estée Lauder. Long-term performance here has still been very good. Over the last five years, it has returned about 220%, according to Trustnet. All things considered, I think it offers an attractive risk-reward proposition.Also in the global equities space, I like Smithson. This investment trust, which is Fundsmith’s mid-cap/small-cap offering, is run with a similar approach to that of Fundsmith Equity. Smithson has performed well since its launch in October 2018, returning 23% per year (to 30 November). Currently, its top holdings include the likes of Rightmove, data company Equifax, and machine reading specialist Cognex.Finally, for a pure technology play, I like the Allianz Technology Trust. To my mind, this trust is a good way to play the technology boom. Its top holdings include Alphabet (Google), Amazon, and Apple. It has returned about 370% over the last five years, which is a very impressive performance.UK investment trusts for 2021In the UK equities space, one of my preferred plays is Murray Income. This is an equity income investment trust that has a focus on higher quality companies. Its top holdings currently include Diageo, Unilever, and AstraZeneca. It’s been a pretty solid investment over the last five years, returning nearly 50%, and comfortably beating the FTSE All-Share index (22%). It also has a five-star rating from Morningstar.Finally, in the UK smaller companies area, I like Blackrock Throgmorton. This is a high-conviction, growth-focused investment trust that aims to invest in the UK’s most differentiated and exciting emerging companies.It looks for businesses with strong and dominant market positions and strong management teams. Top holdings at 31 October were Games Workshop, YouGov, and Gamma Communications. This trust has been a strong performer, returning nearly 120% over the last five years. It’s worth noting it does have a performance fee. That’s one downside. However, overall, I see it as a good way to get small-cap exposure.

Quade Cooper will not be playing 7s for Australia at the Olympics

first_imgThursday May 5, 2016 Quade Cooper will not be playing 7s for Australia at the Olympics Quade Cooper will not be going to the 2016 Rio Olympics, an Australian Sevens statement announced today. He will also not be considered for the final two rounds of the HSBC Sevens World Series.Wallaby Cooper is one of a handful of fifteens stars who took up 7s with the aim of playing at the biggest sporting event in the world. He represented Australia at the Las Vegas and Vancouver 7s, but didn’t set the world alight, and ultimately hasn’t had enough time to prove himself.“There’s no doubt Quade is a quality player, but put simply, we just haven’t had the opportunity to work with him as much as we would have liked over the past five months,” explained Australian Sevens Head Coach Andy Friend.“Each day I have a group of 20-plus players working on different structures and patterns of play and I don’t think we would have got the very best out of Quade had we just thrown him into a tournament with limited preparation – particularly for an event as momentous as the Olympics.“As many players have found out throughout this season’s World Series, it is no easy task to transition from fifteens to the Sevens form of the game. Although we are still a few months out from the Games, I think it offers the fairest outcome for everyone by making the call now.“Quade can channel his energies into Toulon while we can enter the next phase of our preparations for Rio knowing the direction we want to take.“I have complete faith in the players we currently have in the Sevens program and their ability to perform on the big stage. We have two big tournaments coming up in the next couple of weeks in Paris and London and I’m confident we have given ourselves the best possible chance to perform in those events.”Australia are currently fourth in the World Series standings. The squad will travel to Europe on Friday ahead of the ninth leg of the series in Paris, kicking off on Saturday.Coach Andy Friend explained in this video reportcredit: rugby.com.auADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

US — #WeeklyAddress: March 26—April 1: Second whistleblower faces charges under Trump administration

first_img Help by sharing this information NSO Group hasn’t kept its promises on human rights, RSF and other NGOs say United StatesAmericas RSF_en June 7, 2021 Find out more June 3, 2021 Find out more Below are the most notable incidents regarding threats to press freedom in the US during the week of March 26-April 1: News News United StatesAmericas Department of Justice charges FBI whistleblower under Espionage ActThe Department of Justice (DOJ) indicted Terry Albury, a former Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) agent, on March 27 for allegedly leaking secret documents to a national media organization. Though the media outlet was not specified, The Intercept released a set of classified FBI guidelines for assessing confidential informants in January 2017 that correlated with the dates of Albury’s alleged leak. He has been charged under the Espionage Act with two counts related to the unauthorized disclosure and retention of national security information. In a statement, Albury’s attorneys said he “accepts full responsibility for the conduct set forth in the Information.” The Trump administration has made it a priority to prosecute government employees who leak classified information to the media. At a press conference in August 2017, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced that the DOJ will review policies on media subpoenas in leak cases. Sessions said at the conference, “We are taking a stand. This culture of leaking must stop.” Albury is the second whistleblower to be charged under the Espionage Act during Trump’s presidency, following the indictment of former NSA contractor Reality Winner in June 2017. Reporter arrested by New York State Police at lobby of the State Senate On March 28, New York Daily News Albany bureau chief and state Capitol reporter Ken Lovett was arrested in the state Senate for openly talking on his cellphone in the lobby. Lovett claimed he was asked to leave the lobby by the Senate sergeant-at-arms, but refused on the grounds that Senate was not in session. Senate regulations typically prohibit the use of cellphones in the lobby, but this rule is not regularly enforced. Lovett was held in custody for approximately 45 minutes on charges of trespassing until New York Governor Andrew Cuomo bailed him out. Governor Cuomo told reporters: “We don’t believe any charges will be filed. Freedom of the press is alive and well in the city of Albany.” Lovett is the first journalist to be arrested in the United States this year. According to the US Press Freedom Tracker, there were 34 arrests of journalists in 2017. Trump tweets that The Washington Post should register as “lobbyist” On March 31, President Donald Trump falsely stated on Twiter that The Washington Post is acting as a lobbyist for online retailer Amazon and should therefore register as one. This is not the first time President Trump has made this accusation; in a July 2017 tweet, he first expressed his concern that the paper was being used as a “lobbyist weapon” for Amazon’s advantage. While Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos has owned the newspaper since 2013, the company has no stake in The Washington Post and the news outlet operates independently. However, Trump has linked the two together multiple times, referring to the “Amazon Washington Post” in past tweets, and has made The Washington Post the subject of numerous other Twitter tirades. Release of Sinclair’s media-bashing promos draws backlash On March 31, Sinclair Broadcast Group’s anti “fake news” promos went viral after Deadspin, an online media outlet, released a video montage showing dozens of Sinclair anchors reading the same mandated script. Last month, CNN anchor Brian Stelter reported on leaked scripts for Sinclair’s promotional campaign, in which anchors on local affiliates for the broadcasting company denounced the media by using disparaging rhetoric such as “fake news,” a term commonly used by President Donald Trump to discredit major news outlets. At one point in the script, anchors are told to recite: “Unfortunately, some members of the national media are using their platforms to push their own personal bias and agenda to control ‘exactly what people think’ … This is extremely dangerous to our democracy.” CNN Money reported that the new mandate made many staffers feel “uncomfortable.” The edited video elicited negative responses from both the entertainment and media industries, which accused the company of spreading “pro-Trump propaganda.” Sinclair is the country’s largest broadcasting company, owning and operating almost 200 television channels throughout the United States. The United States ranks 43rd out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2017 World Press Freedom Index after falling 2 places in the last year. For the latest updates, follow RSF on twitter @RSF_en.

A journalist’s family threatened

The press freedom watchdog also asked the president to do everything in her power to ensure that the investigation by the Wattala police succeeds in discovering those who ordered these threats.According to information obtained by RSF, an attack was made by three armed individuals against the home of Sarath Chinthaka, correspondent in Wattala (north of Colombo) with the English-language newspaper Daily Mirror and the Sinhala daily Lankadeepa, on the night of 30 March 2002. The three masked men entered the house and threatened his wife, who was alone with their child, demanding that she give them a tape containing a controversial speech made by president Chandrika Kumaratunga. Even though the woman denied the existence of such a tape, the intruders broke open a cabinet and stole seven or eight cassettes and a tape recorder. They then threatened to wait in front of the house for Chinthaka to return. His wife managed to get to a police station and file a complaint. Even though Sarath Chinthaka says he does not have a copy of this speech, he has received several telephone threats.President Chandrika Kumaratunga made a speech in January 2002, in Jaela (a town near Wattala), in which she said she could end the cease-fire between the government and the Tamil Tigers by just saying so. This statement was widely criticized in Sri Lanka and in other countries.

Five children shot, one dead, outside dance party in suburban Baltimore

first_imgkali9/iStock(BALTIMORE) — A 13-year-old boy was killed and four other children, including two 12-year-olds, were wounded when several assailants let loose a barrage of gunfire on a group of young people exiting a dance party in suburban Baltimore, authorities said.A 19-year-old man was also wounded in the shooting early Sunday that broke out in the parking lot of a shopping mall in Rosedale, about six miles northeast of Baltimore, prompting outrage from community leaders.“This incident of gun violence in our community is shocking and horrifying. It has no place in our community, and we refuse to allow it to become normalized,” said Baltimore County Executive John Olszewski Jr.Gunfire erupted just after midnight as people were leaving a dance party at the Triple Threat Elite Dance studio in the Kenwood Shopping Mall, according to police.Investigators, working Monday morning to identify those responsible for the carnage, were interviewing witnesses and combing through surveillance video in hopes of finding footage of the shooting.“As the victims left the event they were approached by several suspects in the parking lot. An altercation ensued and multiple shots were fired towards the group,” the Baltimore County Police Department said in a statement.Killed in the shooting was 13-year-old Rickie Forehand, police said. Two 12-year-old boys, a 14-year-old boy and a 14-year-old girl were also hit by bullets and were being treated at a local hospital, police said.“All loss of life is a tragedy … but having a 13-year-old victim is both devastating and absolutely unspeakable,” Baltimore County Police Chief Melissa Hyatt said at an emotional news conference Sunday afternoon. “This level of violence is unacceptable. An adolescent lost his life for some senseless and unknown reason.”Investigators have not commented on a motive for the shooting, but they do not believe it was a random attack, officials saidA $2,000 reward for information leading to an arrest in the case is being offered by Metro Crime Stoppers of Maryland.Witnesses said the theme of the packed dance party that preceded the gunfire was March Madness. As people were leaving, shots were fired without warning, witnesses said.“I just heard ‘boom, boom, boom,’ and then I turned the corner and I see Rickie on the floor,” one witness, who would only identify himself as Mailaki, told ABC affiliate station WMAR-TV in Baltimore.Mailaki said he and his friends ran into the nearby woods to seek cover as shots shattered the front window of a Goodwill thrift store near the Triple Threat Elite Dance studios.“It was scary,” Mailaki said. “I thought I was going to get shot.” Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.
