The FTSE 250-listed landlord now owns properties worth £1.55bn, which the firm said has been boosted by strong demand for leasing and investments in central London. Office rental values rose by 3.3 per cent in the quarter across GPE’s portfolio, compared with the 2.9 per cent increase recorded for the previous three months. Retail rents in its West End sites gained 1.3 per cent.“With the supply of available space to let falling and rents now rising, we expect these supportive conditions to persist throughout 2011,” said chief executive Toby Courtauld. whatsapplast_img read more

GVC raises earnings guidance following strong Q3

first_img Topics: Casino & games Sports betting Q3 results 2020 GVC Holdings has reported a 12% year-on-year rise in net gaming revenue for the third quarter of 2020, strong growth from its offline business offsetting a weaker performance from its retail operations. GVC raises earnings guidance following strong Q3 In New Jersey, BetMGM’s market share for igaming grew to 22% in August, meaning it has doubled since the start of the year. Its online betting market share in the Garden State grew to 10% for the same month, and its share of the retail market to 24%. Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter In a trading update for the three months ended 30 September, GVC said online gaming revenue was up 26% from the prior year, or 28% on a constant currency business. Q3 results 2020 8th October 2020 | By Robin Harrison GVC picked out Australia as a particularly strong performer, noting that revenue was up 64% on a constant currency basis. “GVC is primed for further growth. In the US, BetMGM continues to go from strength to strength as we roll out into new states, integrate further with our partners’ customer propositions and deliver innovative products and features,” Segev said. “With a market share of approximately 17% across our live markets, we are making great progress towards being the leading operator in the US.” Gaming, meanwhile, saw revenue grow 27%, remaining ahead of pre-pandemic levels, ensuring the online division recorded its nineteenth consecutive quarter of online growth. This will be strengthened further by its acquisition of Portuguese operator Bet.pt, announced today. Regions: Europe US Australia In Q3 the brand significantly expanded its partner roster, adding deals with the likes of the Denver Broncos, Detroit Lions and Las Vegas Raiders, and became the first sports betting partner of the National Football League’s Tennessee Titans. Having launched online betting in Indiana, Colorado and West Virginia in the first half, before adding igaming in West Virginia during Q3, it has grown market share to between 15% and 20% of revenue across these three markets.  While GVC did not break out figures for its BetMGM joint venture with MGM Resorts, it said the business continued to make “great progress” in the quarter. It was on track to be the market leader in sports betting and igaming states, the operator added.center_img As a result the operator has raised its earnings guidance for the year, which it now expects to come in £50m ahead of prior expectations. “The momentum that we are seeing across the group is a clear testament to the resilience of our highly diversified business model, the attractiveness of our brands and products, the power of our proprietary technology platform, and the hard work and dedication of our teams around the world.” “This has been another strong period for GVC,” chief executive Shay Segev said. “We have delivered our nineteenth consecutive quarter of double-digit online growth, along with market share gains in all our major territories.  “While the risk of further restrictions as a result of Covid-19 mean that we remain cautious on the short-term outlook, in the longer term we are confident of being able to continue delivering sustainable growth for all our stakeholders,” Segev added. This strategic progress, GVC said, meant that BetMGM was on track to deliver revenue of between $150m and $160m for the current financial year. Its share of the joint venture’s loss, meanwhile, is expected to be approximately £60m, which considering its 50% stake, suggests BetMGM is on track to post a £120m loss in 2020. This week will also see the brand’s single app launched, combing its betting and – where possible – igaming products in a single solution, with awareness to be driven by its King of Sportsbooks campaign, fronted by Oscar winner Jamie Foxx.  The operator’s performance in the year to date means revenue is only down 2% year-on-year, with a 21% rise in online revenue largely offsetting a 36% decline in GB retail, and a 32% drop in European shop revenue. As a result the operator now expects earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation for the year to come in the range of £770m to £790m, or £50m above previous expectations. This, however, assumes the business faces no more material disruptions in the remainder of the year.  European retail, on the other hand, saw revenue rise 2% from Q3 2019, with a strong performance in Italy offset by slower recoveries in Belgium and the Republic of Ireland. Staking for the European estate was up 3% year-on-year.

In Great Britain, on a like-for-like basis, revenue was down 5% year-on-year, with staking across its British estate down 9%. GVC said its stores opened as soon as government regulations permitted, and volumes had returned to “within 10%” of pre-Covid-19 levels, aided by strong volumes on self-service betting terminals.  During the period, sports recovered strongly from the disruption caused by the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic, with customer stakes up 25%, and revenue rising 24%. This was credited to a busy sporting calendar, with a number of football leagues and competitions completing their 2019-20 seasons during the quarter.last_img read more

The last time I covered ITV (LSE: ITV) shares was in April, shortly after the stock market crash. At the time, the FTSE 100 stock was about 60% below its 52-week high and I said that, in my view, it potentially had 50% upside.For a while my prediction was looking pretty good. In the following six weeks, ITV’s share price rose from around 72p to 91p, a gain of about 26%. However, recently, ITV shares have lost their momentum and fallen back to 64p. This is disappointing for shareholders, myself included. So, why has ITV’s share price fallen? Let’s take a closer look.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…Why have ITV shares fallen?I can think of a few reasons why they’ve fallen since early June. Firstly, it seems a lot of investors are concerned about the threat of streaming services, such as Netflix and Amazon Prime. This is certainly a legitimate concern.Indeed, my colleague Karl Loomes believes that, as a result of the increased popularity of streaming services, many businesses may not spend as much on TV advertising as they did. Karl thinks we could be seeing the start of a fundamental shift in the industry.The fact that ITV hasn’t provided any clarity over advertising revenues since its first-quarter results in early May won’t have helped investor sentiment.Institutional sellingSecondly, one institutional investor has recently offloaded a significant number of ITV shares. According to regulatory filings, The Capital Group has recently dumped around 205m shares. This selling activity reduced the investment management group’s stake in ITV from 9.99% to 4.91% as of 15 July.That kind of heavy selling is likely to have put pressure on ITV shares. It could definitely help to explain why its share price has fallen recently.Earnings downgradesAnother reason is that analysts have continued to lower their earnings forecasts for this year and next. Over the last month, for example, the consensus earnings per share (EPS) forecast for FY2020 has fallen from around 8.8p to 8.5p. Earnings downgrades can impact a company’s share price negatively.ITV may exit the FTSE 100Finally, it’s worth pointing out that ITV’s current market capitalisation is just £2.6bn. That makes it one of the smallest companies in the FTSE 100. If ITV’s share price doesn’t increase, it won’t be long until the stock is dumped from the FTSE 100 index. This could also be impacting sentiment towards the stock.What’s next for ITV’s share price?Can ITV’s share price recover? I still believe it can. First-quarter results in May weren’t great, but they weren’t terrible either. There were definitely some positives.For example, the company said ITV Studios was seeing “good demand” for its library content internationally. Meanwhile, it said that it was seeing “good growth” for BritBox free trial starts and subscriptions.Of course, there are plenty of risks here. However, if ITV can execute on its strategy to become a digitally-led media and entertainment company that creates brilliant content, there should be rewards for patient long-term investors.

As affordable land is getting scarce in cosmopolitan cities of India, development has spread to their fringes. This move towards the suburbs has resulted in extensive developments including vast residential zones and commissioning of new private houses. Save this picture!© Lightzone; Ranjan SharmaThis new family house with three independent floors is such an example spread over 350 Sq.mt. plot of land. While the upper floors are living areas for architect couples, the basement houses their studio. Save this picture!© Lightzone; Ranjan SharmaDesigned around a courtyard, the house incorporates hierarchy of zones with formal living spaces in front and private areas at the back. The bedrooms and toilets are in the rear along the north south axis while the drawing, living and kitchen areas are grouped together in the front arranged along a linear east-west axis forming the spine of the house. The courtyard that forms center of the house faces south and is overlooked by living and bedroom areas on the ground and first floors. Adjacent to the courtyard is a steel staircase connecting the upper floors. On the ground and first floors, rooms at front and rear are connected by ‘bridge-like’ spaces that run along the courtyard. Also running in parallel is a two feet deep wall that at places acts as a shading device for large windows or incorporates built-in timber benches overlooking the open courts. Save this picture!© Lightzone; Ranjan SharmaCourtyards have been an inherent design feature of Indian architecture serving as a climate modifier, a social gathering space and are referred to as ‘Brahmasthana’ (sacred center) of a house. Architects have used this idea and organized the functions around the central courtyard on both floors. There are a series of smaller courts/ voids punctuated on all levels bringing in light and ventilation to the spaces and serving as lungs of the house and simultaneously providing views out from every room. The cross-section through the courtyard illustrates this idea with the ‘benching’ form towards the north creating south facing courts on upper levels as well. Save this picture!© Lightzone; Ranjan SharmaThe double-height entrance area is connected with a precariously placed staircase that forms the focus of the house. One is awestruck entering this space. This three-storey high stair zone forms a connection between the basement void, ground floor entrance and the first floor. The staircase custom-designed and fabricated out of steel and timber feels as if it is hung in middle of this lofty volume filled with light, facing a full height transparent wall. This glass and steel skin turns horizontal at the top and becomes part of the roof. Save this picture!© Lightzone; Ranjan SharmaAnother unique architectural move was to highlight the southwest corner of the house that forms the carport and the main entrance. This corner houses a study cum library on the first floor. The slit window to this room- referred to as the ‘eye’ of the house- faces south. The west wall of the study, overlooking the street, faces the fierce afternoon western sun, which prompted the architects to use motorized louvers that could be adjusted to block off the undesired glare into the room. Moreover, these louvers make an elegant veiled box hovering over the virtually transparent ground floor corner that opens to the front with views to the water body. Also adding to the drama is the ‘V’ shaped steel column that supports this corner reinforcing the impression of weightlessness. Save this picture!© Lightzone; Ranjan SharmaGround and first floors are predominantly masonry while the second storey is lighter mainly clad in timber. The composition of the architectural form required timber cladding on the second level. The west facing area on this floor is protected with the use of an extended steel and aluminium parasol. Save this picture!© Lightzone; Ranjan SharmaFurther, the architects have applied green strategies to make the house sustainable. Save this picture!© Lightzone; Ranjan SharmaThe architectural design, with series of inter-connected voids, facilitates natural ventilation generated during summers by using stack effect, thus resulting in cooler spaces. South facing solar collectors have been installed to heat water in winters to be used in toilets and kitchens. This has reduced electric costs significantly as the system does not involve any electric geysers. Also, large window openings allow abundant natural light inside the spaces reducing the use of artificial light sources during the day. Other systems used in construction are eco-friendly as well. Timber and aluminium are some of the recyclable materials used that add towards sustainability. Also, with the idea to operate as a live-work unit from the lower ground floor, the architects have indeed played their role in reducing their carbon footprint. This space being half sunk requires virtually no heating system in winters and very little air conditioning in summers. Save this picture!Exploded AxoEssentially modernist in spirit, the intrinsic idea was to create a house that would be an exemplar of fusion between the traditional and modern values of architecture. As a result, the architectural vocabulary effortlessly integrates the principles of modernism with traditional responses to this particular climate. Further, use of clean lines and white expanses enhance the contemporary aspect of the house. The house is a true visual and architectural delight that appropriately caters to the needs of younger generation looking to break away from conventional house designs without losing the essence of their traditions.Project gallerySee allShow lessHelix Spire / Erich Remash + Chris ThomasArticlesLibrary in Kharkiv / Roman Pomazan and Eugene VashchenkoArticles Share Houses Photographs ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/79206/b-99-house-dada-partners Clipboard Save this picture!© Lightzone; Ranjan Sharma+ 20 Share CopyHouses•Gurgaon, India 2006 B-99 House / DADA & Partners Year:  Projects Architects: DADA & Partners Area Area of this architecture project “COPY”last_img read more
