The acquisition of the loss-making hard disk drive (HDD) business pits it head-to-head with Western Digital Corp in an industry that has been dogged by price wars. The sector is battling persistent sales growth declines and faces a longer-term threat from wireless tablet devices such as Apple’s iPad that use more power-efficient flash drives.
Finance Topics: Finance Strategy 5th February 2019 | By contenteditor Tags: Mobile Online Gambling Email Address AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter William Hill has increased its stake in MRG to approximately 98.5% ahead of its complete takeover of the online gambling company. The bookmaker expects to finalise the purchase of MRG and assume full control of the business this month, having now initiated compulsory acquisition of the remaining shares in MRG. In accordance with the acquisition agreement, Mr Green operator MRG is due to cease trading on the Nasdaq Stockholm exchange on February 15. William Hill first revealed plans to acquire MRG in October last year, when it tabled a bid of SEK2.82bn (£237m/€271m/$309m) for the business. The offer represented SEK69 in cash per share in MRG. At the time, William Hill CEO Philip Bowcock said that the deal would enable the bookmaker to become “a more digital and more international business”. Last month, William Hill was given the green light from regulators to complete the deal and the bookmaker had hoped to finalise the acquisition by January 25. MRG holds remote gambling licences in Denmark, Italy, Latvia, Malta, Sweden, the UK and Ireland. Ulrik Bengtsson, chief digital officer at William Hill, will be responsible for leading the integration of MRG within the group. Last month, William Hill warned that its adjusted operating profit for 2018 is set to be 15% lower than in the previous year. The bookmaker expects this figure to amount to £234m, which is in line with guidance of between £225m and £245m. Speaking at the time, Bowcock said the acquisition of MRG would help to boost the business. He said: “With rapid expansion underway in the US, building on profitable foundations, and the acquisition of Mr Green nearing completion, we look forward to making further progress this year.” William Hill has increased its stake in MRG to approximately 98.5% ahead of its complete takeover of the online gambling company.

The agreement will see Parx Casino pay a total licensing fee of $3m, implying a patent license of roughly $75 per reward card. A further amendment to the existing contract with Parx Casino sees the operator released from exclusivity moving forward. Tags: GAN Parx Casino GAN delivers record 14.6m Super Bowl bets and expands Parx deal The patent licensing deal with Parx Casino further validates GAN’s intellectual property, he said, and sets a new bar for its value per reward card. B2B online gaming supplier GAN announced that it delivered a record 14.6m settled online bets on the day of the Super Bowl LV last week, up 186% on last year’s event. AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Topics: Sports betting Online sports betting Dermot Smurfit, chief executive of GAN, said the supplier delivered uninterrupted performance for all of its US clients during last week’s Super Bowl, experiencing record transaction volumes before, during and after the event. “As a result, we believe we are on track to license our iBridge patent to additional U.S. casino operator groups in 2021 and throughout the patent’s remaining 13-year duration, which should help us drive long-term value for our shareholders,” Smurfit concluded.

The supplier has also reached an agreement with existing customer Greenwood Gaming & Entertainment (trading as Parx Casino), to license its iBridge integration framework, which integrates operators’ online and offline loyalty reward schemes, for a period of 10 years. “We continue to be engaged in numerous conversations with both large and small casino-operators to partner with GAN in order to seamlessly connect their loyal reward-card carrying customers to their various online offerings.” 9th February 2021 | By Conor Mulheir Email Address

Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you. Because we’re offering a full 33% off your first year of membership to our flagship share-tipping service, backed by our ‘no quibbles’ 30-day subscription fee refund guarantee. Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares As we head into a second lockdown, the risks to UK shares are growing. A second stock market crash could be just around the corner, although at this stage, it is impossible to tell. This is the big problem investors face right now. It is impossible to predict the outlook for UK shares over the medium term. 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…That’s why I’m preparing for all eventualities. Rather than trying to gamble on what might happen, I’ve positioned my portfolio for the worst. That means I’ve been attempting to divest any shares that might suffer in a second stock market crash or extended economic slump. UK shares to avoid The firms I’ve tried to avoid are those companies with lots of debt and thin profit margins.A great example is Cineworld. This business built up a tremendous amount of debt before the crisis and was then forced to shut in the pandemic. Even if the company does manage to reopen at the beginning of next year, it will still have more than $8bn of debt to repay. I think the group will find it tough to meet these obligations, even if profits ever return to 2019 levels. Airline companies are an example of the sorts of UK shares with tight margins that I want to avoid. Most airlines only make money if their flights are fully booked. Profit margins are so slim that even a slight drop in capacity can lead to a significant slump in profitability. That’s why I’ve always tended to avoid airlines like IAG and easyJet. There’s just too much that can go wrong. It may also be sensible to avoid financial firms, in my opinion. Some initial forecasts suggest that some banks, such as Barclays and Lloyds, may be able to ride out the economic storm, but others may not be so lucky.Operations like Virgin Money and OneSavings could struggle to continue to attract customers in the current interest rate and economic environment.That’s why I think the best decision may be to avoid them altogether. In my view, there are plenty of other UK shares that may perform better in another stock market crash. Companies I’d buy So, those are the sorts of companies I’m trying to avoid. On the other hand, I’m buying high-quality blue-chip UK shares to hold for the long term. Some organisations, such as Unilever and Diageo, continue to trade at what I believe are highly attractive valuations.As such, I’ve been focusing on these stocks rather than trying to guess what the future holds for weaker businesses. That’s the great thing about investing, one does not have to own every stock. It’s possible to pick and choose individual equities that appear to have brighter outlooks than the rest of the market.I’m taking full advantage of this benefit to position myself for a second stock market crash.

An abandoned plot in Shoreditch, East London has been transformed into a 220sqm new build family home by architects Urban Mesh Design ltd. Designed by and for practice director, Oliver Lazarus, and his family, Volcano House is complete with four bedrooms, ground floor studio, a series of home offices and garden terraces and a stunning facade of bespoke ‘Black Volcano’ brickwork.Save this picture!© Charles HoseaPreviously an open yard to the rear of a grocery shop, the site had been vacant since 2008. Urban Mesh saw potential in a site shunned by other developers and designed a house to transcend the narrow geometry of the plot and complement an already colourful street.Save this picture!SectionVolcano House sits on Coate Street E2, a pedestrian thoroughfare that runs east west between the burgeoning Oval Space and the tranquillity of Haggerston Park. Sited in a conservation area, the locale is also blessed with a number of modern house gems and given this heritage and the increasing foot traffic through the area, Urban Mesh were keen to add to this East London landscape.Save this picture!© Charles HoseaGiven the relative small layout of the exterior and its prominence on the street, Urban Mesh were able to focus on quality over quantity and deliver something unique. Working closely with brick supplier Erkan Nihat of EBM and brick maestro Ian Peper of HG Matthews they developed an entirely bespoke and innovative ‘Black Volcano’ brick specifically for the project.Save this picture!© Charles HoseaConsisting of three bands of differing brick treatment and throwing mirror polish slips into the mix creates a surface that is as reflective as it is enveloping: by day a semi transparent elevation and by night a reflective beacon of the bright lights of the East End.Save this picture!© Charles HoseaThe interiors of the home were playfully designed to suit the desires and personalities of Lazarus and his family. As a result, the home is filled with colourful and individual touches throughout. In the main dining space sliding pastel green kitchen units are complemented by a cantilevered sea-blue wrap-around leather banquette and reclaimed peach church pew. Glass doors disappear into walls, neon hearts glow, stairs become periscopes. In the 3r d floor master bathroom a well placed step puts the 6’3” and 4’11” couple at equal heights at double stone sinks as well as providing access to a secluded street facing bamboo terrace.Save this picture!© Charles HoseaAt upper levels circulation areas expand to become music, games and homework spaces – as much a salute to creative space planning as a reaction to the family’s previous corridored Victorian maisonette.The Ground floor provides a calm refuge arranged around a large pear tree planted within a glazed courtyard containing guest accommodation and an airy open ceilinged studio space for Lazarus’ yoga and health practitioner wifeSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!First Floor PlanSave this picture!Second Floor PlanSave this picture!Third Floor PlanDespite the plot size, 3.7m wide at front, and 20m in depth, the home is filled with natural light from generous glazing in recesses that resulted from extensive party wall and rights of light negotiations. Even the plot shape formed part of the design process as negotiations with a neighbouring development resulted in a widened rear and a beguiling wedge shaped footprint to the building that subtly opens up as you pass from front to back.Oliver Lazarus, Director of Urban Mesh and occupant of Volcano House said “The project has been a labour of love from purchase and planning through to construction and fit out but, given the opportunity, what architect could resist the opportunity to build their own house, especially so close to home in London. The nature of the site pushed us as architects to create something engaging in the streetscape and internally to create a generous home with functional, beautifully proportioned and well connected spaces. As a family it gave us the incredible opportunity to build a lifetime home in an area we lived and loved.Save this picture!© Charles HoseaVolcano House is shortlisted for two awards at the 2019 Brick Awards: Innovation and Architects’ Choice.Save this picture!© Charles HoseaProject gallerySee allShow lessCristopher Cichocki’s Places Art in Architecture to Spark a Discussion About Environ…Architecture NewsA Month After the Fire, The National Museum Receives Emergency Repair and Demands a …Architecture News Share Save this picture!© Charles Hosea+ 25Curated by María Francisca González Share Photographs: Charles Hosea Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Shell contractor: ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/903688/black-volcano-urban-mesh-design Clipboard “COPY” Houses Year: Photographs Architects: Urban Mesh Design Area Area of this architecture project Structural Engineers: CopyAbout this officeUrban Mesh DesignOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlassBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentRenovationEnglandLondonUnited KingdomPublished on October 20, 2018Cite: “Black Volcano / Urban Mesh Design” 20 Oct 2018.

Howard Lake | 1 December 2013 | News Other major donationsThe Campaign has already received a number of other large donations:• A £2.5 million gift from Bacteriology and Biochemistry graduate Peter Cheney and his wife Susan has established a programme of fellowships• A donation from Economics and Politics graduate Michael Beverley enabled the University to build a Super Resolution Light Microscope• The Liz and Terry Bramall Foundation is funding the University’s Reach for Excellence programme for five years, supporting work in local schools and communities to encourage more local young people to aim high and achieve their full potential.University Chancellor Melvyn Bragg explained how these donations revive a tradition of philanthropic support for universities:“In the post-war era, state funding for universities grew and the need for philanthropy declined. But now the state is pulling back, and I don’t see how we can be an ambitious university, creating inspirational opportunities for our students and growing our research to tackle the major challenges of the modern world, without the support of our donors”. 42 total views, 1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis2 Tagged with: alumni AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis2 University of Leeds launches £60m fundraising campaign The University of Leeds is embarking on a £60 million fundraising campaign, its first major fundraising campaign since 1925. The funds will be used to create new student , push forward its research and support its vision of a place among the world’s leading universities.The Making a World of Difference Campaign is structured around five key areas of the university’s people and research – Arts & Culture, Climate Change, Global Society & Business, Human Health, and Students.First stage of the campaignThe first stage of the Campaign has already attracted over 10,000 gifts so far, and these are already helping hundreds of students and supporting research.The University has also received its biggest ever donation, a gift of £9 million which will support the creation of its new library on its city centre campus. The library will be named after the donor, Irvine Laidlaw, who studied economics at Leeds in the early 1960.The four-storey building, due to open in the spring of 2015, will also provide a new home for some of the University’s outreach work with the local community.Lord Laidlaw has been a donor to the University for some time, providing scholarships for students from less privileged backgrounds and supporting the brightest undergraduates to join major research projects.He said:“I came from a quite privileged background and at that time Leeds was very much a working class university. As Grants and Welfare Secretary for the students’ union I was able to help people who were facing serious money issues – and I found out about deprivation in a way I’d not experienced before.“This experience showed me how privileged I was and it stayed with me. I have been very fortunate; my business has been a great success, but success is not just about talent or ability. It’s also about encouragement, whether from the family, school or University, and we need to do more to nurture people’s ability”.
