Serco profit rises but warns over UK headwinds

first_img British outsourcing group Serco posted a 21 per cent rise in full-year profit, helped by strong revenue growth in the Americas, while it admitted government cuts were hitting the UK market.Serco, which runs London’s cycle-hire scheme, several prisons in Britain and Dubai’s metro, said pre-tax profit rose to £214m.Shares in the FTSE 100 listed company, which raised its total dividend 17.6 per cent to 7.35 pence, were up 2.2 per cent after the announcement.“We expect limited changes to our estimates following the results meeting. We do anticipate a post-results relief rally following the recent trauma seen in the UK public sector services market which these results demonstrate Serco has been unaffected by,” Evolution Securities analyst Graham Brown said.Serco, which has targeted an increase in revenues to about £5bn by the end of 2012, said 2010 revenue rose nine per cent to £4.33bn on strong performances in the Americas.In Britain, Serco said austerity measures were being felt particularly in the defence and local government markets, causing headwinds, while other markets were thriving.“We have seen tremendous growth in the international business, much of the success has been underpinned by our success in new markets,” chief executive Chris Hyman said.“We are continuing to focus on building the business in New Zealand, Australia, India and the Middle East and the US is a huge market.” whatsapp Wednesday 2 March 2011 7:00 am Tags: NULL Share John Dunne whatsapp Serco profit rises but warns over UK headwinds Read This NextRicky Schroder Calls Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl ‘Ignorant Punk’ forThe WrapCNN’s Brian Stelter Draws Criticism for Asking Jen Psaki: ‘What Does theThe WrapDid Donald Trump Wear His Pants Backwards?

Twin River sets targets with Dover Downs merger

first_imgCasino & games Topics: Casino & games Finance Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter 24th July 2018 | By contenteditor The executive chairman of Twin River has claimed that a proposed merger with rival casino operator Dover Downs in the US will allow the combined entity to fix its spotlight on online gaming sector opportunities, as well as sports betting.John Taylor Jr. was speaking after the deal was announced, pending regulatory approvals, with Twin River set to switch from being a privately-held entity to a publicly-traded company on the New York Stock Exchange or the Nasdaq.Under the deal, Twin River – which already has a presence in the south, west and north-east of the US through venues in Mississippi, Colorado and Rhode Island, respectively – would take control of Dover Downs Hotel & Casino in Delaware, expanding the operator’s portfolio into the mid-Atlantic region.“We’re excited about the many benefits we believe we will realise from the combination,” Taylor said.“Dover Downs and its team are experienced in not only brick and mortar casino operations, but in sports betting, which we think will be helpful as we introduce that amenity at our properties, and in the online gaming sector which continues to evolve nationwide.”Dover Downs’ president and CEO, Denis McGlynn, added: “We believe this transaction will help us grow our business, invest in our people and our facilities and compete more effectively given changes in gaming on the horizon. We expect to see many positive benefits for the state, the Delaware Lottery and our employees and stockholders.”Dover Downs was one of Delaware’s three casinos to start offering full-scale sports betting in the state in June after the Supreme Court overturned the 1992 Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (PASPA) in May.GVC Holdings-owner Stadium Technology Group’s propriety sports betting platform is supporting the sportsbooks across Delaware’s casinos.

EGBA unveils first pan-European igaming advertising code

first_img28th April 2020 | By contenteditor EGBA unveils first pan-European igaming advertising code The European Gaming and Betting Association (EGBA) has published the first pan-European code of conduct for responsible advertising for online gambling, with a particular focus on the protection of minors.The ‘Code of Conduct on Responsible Advertising for Online Gambling’ pledges to both complement and strengthen existing legal and self-regulatory frameworks for online gambling advertising in place across Europe.Developed in the context of the EU Audio Visual Media Services Directive, which emphasises the role of self- and co-regulation in protecting minors from exposure to gambling advertising, the new code features a range of specific measures.These include a section on content moderation and how gambling advertising should look, as well as a focus on minor protection, whereby adverts should not be shown during broadcasts dedicated to minors, while also setting out details regarding age screening tools on social media to protect minors.The code also covers first-of-their-kind measures for social media marketing, in terms of age-gating on the social media profiles of gambling brands to ensure minors do not have access.Other measures include sponsorship arrangements, whereby operators agree not to sponsor any activities that have a predominant appeal to minors, as well as a section on responsible gambling messaging and campaigns.The new code will apply to all EGBA members and is open for signature by online gambling companies licensed in the European Union, European Economic Area and the UK, as well as other gambling associations and representation bodies of the media sector.The EGBA also said it is its intention to ensure that compliance with the code is monitored and enforced by an independent third-party, adding that the code will support its ongoing efforts to promote responsible gambling advertising during the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) crisis.“We’re very pleased to present EGBA’s Code of Conduct for responsible gambling advertising, which promotes high standards for minor protection and socially responsible advertising content,” EGBA secretary general Maarten Haijer said.“Advertising is essential to inform the consumer of the websites which are regulated and steer them away from rogue black-market websites. But advertising should be responsible and protect consumers, particularly minors.“We encourage other gambling companies to sign up to the code and look forward to engaging with Europe’s authorities to ensure its success.”Publication of the code comes after the EGBA earlier this month disputed claims that national lockdowns as a result of the coronavirus pandemic will lead to an increase in online gambling, claiming instead that activity will in fact decline.However, it also warned that with additional scrutiny on operators, it was particularly important to take a lead in protecting players, rather than leaving it to individuals to police their own behaviour. The European Gaming and Betting Association (EGBA) has published the first pan-European code of conduct for responsible advertising for online gambling, with a particular focus on the protection of minors.

Photo: Reuters[Episcopal News Service] Episcopal bishops are speaking out in the aftermath of back-to-back mass shootings in Texas and Ohio, offering prayers, conveying the grief of their dioceses and hoping for a future when American life will no longer be plagued by such sudden bursts of deadly gun violence.“Jesus said blessed are the peacemakers, and we in the church are called to make peace in our neighborhoods and with our young people,” Diocese of the Rio Grande Bishop Michael Hunn said in an online video reacting to the Aug. 3 massacre of 20 people at a Walmart in El Paso, Texas.A 21-year-old man has been arrested in the killings and is suspected of posting a racist, anti-immigrant manifesto online before opening fire.“My heart is heavy this morning with the tragic shootings yesterday in El Paso and last night in Dayton,” Southern Ohio Bishop Tom Breidenthal said in a Facebook post on Aug. 4, hours after a gunman opened fire in an entertainment district in Dayton. Police shot and killed the gunman, a 25-year-old man, whose motive wasn’t immediately clear.Breidenthal, while offering prayers for the victims and those affected by the shootings, lamented that this was the second time in a year that his diocese was in mourning after a mass shooting in one of its cities. An attack in September left three victims dead and two others wounded in Cincinnati.“Please join me in praying for an end to the epidemic of hate and violence that is sweeping our country,” he said.Hunn and Breidenthal are part of Bishops United Against Gun Violence, a network of nearly 100 Episcopal bishops that formed in the wake of two high-profile mass shootings in 2012, at a Sikh temple in Wisconsin and at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut. The bishops’ mission has taken on a greater sense of urgency amid the growing national alarm at subsequent tragedies.The Bishops United’s Litany in the Wake of a Mass Shooting was updated on Aug. 4 and now remembers the victims of 43 shootings since 2012.Connecticut Bishop Ian Douglas read the litany in a Facebook video after the El Paso and Dayton shootings, noting that Aug. 5 marks seven years since the Sikh temple shooting.“This litany is a prayer offered for all the mass shootings, all the victims of mass shootings since Bishops United Against Gun Violence has come together,” Douglas said.Douglas and other leaders of Bishops United planned to discuss a further response to the recent shootings later Aug. 5, after attention was focused in the morning on a statement read by President Donald Trump from the White House.“We ask God in heaven to ease the anguish of those who suffer, and we vow to act with urgent resolve,” Trump said in his 10-minute remarks.The president also forcefully denounced racism and hatred, saying neither has a place in America, and he enumerated four potential policy responses – their focuses included violent video games and mental illness – that could reduce the “barbaric slaughters” he said were carried out by “mentally ill monsters.”Trump avoided calling for any substantial gun safety reforms, and it remains to be seen whether the shock of the recent violence will push the needle in Washington further toward such legislation. As the list of mass shootings has increased, legislative remedies have gone nowhere in Congress.The Episcopal Church’s General Convention has passed numerous resolutions over the years calling for tighter gun laws. A resolution passed in 2015 included calls for universal criminal background checks for gun purchases, a ban on military-style assault weapons and high-capacity magazines, tougher enforcement against gun trafficking and requirements that gun owners be trained in gun safety. In 2018, bishops and deputies passed a new resolution recognizing gun violence as a public health issue.With the recent focus on tragedies in El Paso and Dayton, Episcopalians churchwide have joined in mourning the victims of the recent shootings. Chicago Bishop Jeffrey Lee issued a statement on Facebook in which he prayed “for the strength and commitment to stand up against the corrosive power of hateful speech and the insanity of all too available guns.” Bishop Sean Rowe, who leads the dioceses of Northwestern Pennsylvania and Western New York, sent a letter to both urging Episcopalians not to give up hope.“I invite you to pray in response to these evil acts – not as a substitute for action, but as a precursor to it,” Rowe said.Arizona Bishop Jennifer Reddall was among the speakers Aug. 4 at a vigil for gun violence victims in Phoenix.“You cannot be a white supremacist and be a Christian,” Reddall said, according to the Arizona Republic’s coverage of the event. “You cannot love Jesus and hate your neighbor. And if you say you do, you’re wrong.”And while people of faith pray, Reddall called on politicians to do more than pray. “I want you to do your job, which is to act,” she said.– David Paulsen is an editor and reporter for Episcopal News Service.

Trump’s budget would change student loan process, rates

first_imgLinkedin Griffin Conboyhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/griffin-conboy/ TCU’s University Union early voting location for Texas primary elections Previous articleLive coverage: SGA Meeting Feb. 20Next articleSurvivors of Florida school shooting organize student march on Washington Griffin Conboy RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR printPresident Donald Trump released his new budget plan for the 2019 fiscal year and it highlights increases in military spending, infrastructure and the opioid crisis while cutting the budgets of the EPA, the State Department and funding for Medicaid. And while all of that is important, there’s another element of Trump’s budget that will likely catch many student’s eyes: his plan for student loans.The new budget would eliminate loan forgiveness for those who enter into public service, end subsidized Stafford loans and set up a new, unified income-based repayment plan for student loans. This new system would have students pay 12.5 percent of their discretionary income every month, instead of the average of 10 percent many pay now, but would have loans forgiven after 15 years, instead of the 20 it is now.However, changes to loans would apply to those borrowing after July 1, 2019, and does not include loans provided to borrowers to finish their current education.According to a 2012 study done by the U.S. Department of Education, 71 percent of college seniors graduated with student loans. That number had increased seven percent since 2000.According to the TCU Common Data Set for 2017-2018, 64.4 percent of undergraduate students have need-based aid granted to them.Several TCU students have already expressed concern about Trump’s new budget plan. Nick McDevitt, a sophomore engineering major, is on a federal subsidized loan plan.“My parents wanted me to learn the value of a dollar,” McDevitt said. “So I took out a loan. If the budget plan was to come to fruition, it definitely wouldn’t help.”However, some TCU students aren’t as worried. Junior Sean Connors feels as though it won’t be as much of a problem as people think it is.“I feel the impact won’t be that big of a deal,” Connors said. “Students will just have to go through other means in order to obtain the loans. I know I looked at refinancing because the federal loans have very high interest rates.”However, student loans aren’t the only part of education being cut in Trump’s budget. In the Department of Education section, the budget calls for “a $7.1 billion or 10.5-percent decrease from the 2017 enacted level.”The White House estimated that if Trump’s plan was enacted it would save taxpayers $600 million compared to last year.All of this is just a wish-list for Trump however and not actual policy. It would have to be passed by Congress before any actual challenges were made. Considering the budget has always drawn criticism from both parties it’s unlikely the budget would be passed in an unaltered form.
