Catena Media reports record revenue and earnings in first quarter

first_imgGeographically, Europe remained Catena’s primary market for this segment, while South-East Asia continued to emerge as a market of interest for the affiliate. Revenue from casino operations climbed 53.7% year-on-year to €25.2m, helped by positive developments in the US, Italy and Japan. In the US in particular, the opening of Michigan’s legal online casino market contributed to revenue growth, while new operator launches in Pennsylvania during Q4 of 2020 also drove growth. Catena said it experienced a strong start to the year, helped by increased client appetite for crypto-related trading, while organic traffic was stable across its portfolio. Performance marketing conversions dropped in response to a move by Google to reduce paid revenue possibilities for unlicensed content providers, of which Catena, as an affiliate, is one. Catena said it also performed well in Italy in Q1, though operations in Germany continued to face performance issues due to ongoing regulation issues. Meanwhile, in Japan, Catena said its business showed strong double-digit revenue growth, driven by a strong product offering that performed well organically and via social channels. Revenue for the three months to 31 March amounted to €40.7m (£35.1m/$49.8m), which was 52.4% higher than the €26.7m generated in the opening quarter of last year. Affiliate business Catena posted record revenue and earnings in the first quarter of its 2021 financial year after what it described as an “exceptional” performance in North America and other key global markets. Looking at spending and operating costs for Q1 reached €19.8m, up 12.5% year-on-year. Direct costs increased 37.5% to €3.3m due to higher spend on pay-per-click costs, while expansion in the US saw personnel expenses climb 15.2% to €7.6m. AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Email Address Catena also noted €1.1m in further costs, primarily from interest payable on hybrid capital securities, which meant it ended the quarter with a comprehensive profit of €17.0m, up 84.8% on last year. Operating profit for the quarter amounted to €21.0m, up 130.8% on last year, while Catena also said that adjusted earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA) rocketed 94.6% to €25.1m. “Change can easily disrupt an organisation, so I was especially cheered to see our teams deliver an exceptional performance in Q1 in spite of transformation-related distractions.” Tags: Revenue Catena Media Proifit Meanwhile, financial trading revenue declined 26.7% to €1.1m, though on a like-for-like basis, and excluding the sale of Catena Media Financials US Inc. in Q4 of 2020, revenue was only down 2.0% year-on-year. “We still have a way to go to realise our full potential, but the outlook is bright and I see clear promise for a prolonged upward trajectory for Catena Media in the next five to 10 years and beyond,” Daly said. Turning to sports betting, revenue was up 65.5% to €14.4m in Q1. Catena again put this down to growth in the US market, helped by the launch of legal sports wagering in Michigan and Virginia, as well as the easing of the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic, with the sports calendar returning to normal.center_img “The excellent performance reflects our teams’ focus on driving our global portfolio of affiliation brands,” Catena chief executive Michael Daly said. “Special credit goes to North America, where year-on-year revenue jumped more than 200%, supported by the successful launch of operations in Michigan and Virginia during January.  “Several other US states are moving towards opening their markets and we see potential for one or more of these to go live later this year. Likewise, the Canadian market is opening up and Ontario is projected to come online later this year or at the start of 2022.” “From an internal perspective, we continue to optimise our ability to maximise growth through onward expansion in our North America while also making inroads into frontier markets in Latin America, Asia and Africa,” Daly said.  Outside of the US, revenue in Italy reached a new quarterly record high, though revenue in Germany continued to decline due to product restrictions, regulatory uncertainty and changes in player behaviour.  Q1 results 2021 Daly also provided an update of Catena’s Q2 performance, with organic growth in April reaching 15.0%, or 24.0% when excluding Germany, compared to average monthly revenue in Q2 last year. Topics: Marketing & affiliates Q1 results 2021 Affiliates In terms of business segment, casino remained by far the primary source of income for Catena in Q1, accounting for 62% of all revenue, ahead of sports betting on 35% and financial trading at 3%. Catena Media reports record revenue and earnings in first quarter Search revenue in Q1 totalled €38.4m, up 60.7% on last year, though paid revenue was down 3.0% to €2.3m, while Catena did not generate any revenue from subscriptions in Q1 of 2021.  Sweden revenue fell as a result of continued bonus and deposit limits – introduced as part of the country’s gambling harm protection methods during Covid-19 – while the UK market developed favourably, helped by the Cheltenham Festival horse racing event. After taking into account €1.1m in interest on borrowings, €1.2m in financial liability losses and €707,000 in other finance income, profit before tax was 104.2% higher at €19.4m. The affiliate paid €1.4m in tax, leaving a profit of €18.0m, up 93.6% year-on-year. Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter 19th May 2021 | By Robert Fletcherlast_img read more

Journalist arrested on provincial governor’s orders

first_img February 18, 2021 Find out more Organisation Rebel militia threats against two radio journalists in eastern DRC Reporters Without Borders (RSF) joins Journalist in Danger (JED), its partner organization in Democratic Republic of Congo, in condemning the high-handed methods that the interim governor of the northwestern province of Mongala has been using to silence local media outlets. Receive email alerts News Radio Liberté Lisala director Erick Ngunde had just hosted a programme about political tension and conflicts in the province on 13 February when interim governor Clémentine Sole stormed into the radio station with about 20 policemen and had him arrested.When reached by RSF, Sole said she had been obliged to take this action because Ngunde had interviewed a politician “who sows trouble in the province” and because his radio station continues to “insult the authorities” despite her repeated “warnings.”“It is unacceptable for a governor to take the law into her own hands by going to a radio station and arresting a journalist simply because she doesn’t like what a guest said on the air,” said Arnaud Froger, the head of RSF’s Africa desk. “We call for the release of this journalist, who should not be in prison, and we urge the local authorities to stop using such high-handed methods to settle any differences they may have with some of the province’s media.”Ngunde was arrested less than 24 hours after Radio Liberté Lisala had been given permission to resume broadcasting. Like Radio Mwana Mboka, which is also owned by former governor Crispin Ngbundu, it had been closed for a week on the interim governor’s orders for urging people to go to the airport in the province’s capital, Lisala, to greet Ngbundu on his return to the province for the first time since his removal as governor in December.Accompanied by policemen, the interim governor also went to the local branch of the national radio and TV broadcaster, RTNC, on 5 February to order it to cut short a programme about Ngbundu’s imminent return to the province.Journalists and media have suffered because of the political rivalry in Mongala in recent months and have often been the direct targets of reprisals between the rival factions. In a press release last June, when Ngbundu was still governor, RSF reported that the provincial authorities had ordered the suspension of several radio programmes of a political nature and the dismissal of at least six journalists.RSF has been actively advocating for a moratorium on arrests of journalists in the DRC pending a complete overhaul of the very repressive 1996 law regulating journalism. President Félix Tshisekedi said he supported the proposal when he met with RSF and JED in November 2019 but has taken no action since then.The DRC is ranked 150th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2020 World Press Freedom Index.

‘Matter Is Under Consideration Of Concerned Authority”: SG Tells SC On J&K HC Bar Association President Mian Abdul Qayoom’s Habeas Plea Against Detention Order

Accordingly, the plea has been adjourned to July 27th. Senior Advocate Dushyant Dave and Advocate Vrinda Grover, along with Advocate Soutik Banerjee, appeared on behalf of the Petitioner. The SG further submitted to the Court that there may not be any need to go into the merits of the case. However, this contention was vehemently opposed by Dave, who yet again reiterated that any adjournment at this stage should not be given, specifically in habeas corpus matters. Dave also stated that, if required, the SG could secure instructions within 24 hours and the matter could be listed tomorrow. He expressed an inclination to the Court that he was willing to argue on the merits as the case was squarely covered by the precedents of the Supreme Court itself. The Court, however, adjourned the matter to coming Monday, i.e. July 27th. On the previous date of hearing, the Supreme Court had adjourned the matter and allowed the SG to seek instructions on the issue and to respond with the reasons for prolonging Qayoom’s detention. SG had informed the Court that Qayoom’s ideology went against national interests, and he accordingly sought for 10 days’ time to seek instructions. This request had been opposed by Dave. To this, Justice Kaul noted, “They are trying to sort it out, and there are sometimes compulsions that we have to comply with.” The Bench then, taking into consideration that the COVID-19 pandemic demanded sympathy on behalf of the State, stated, “He is 73 years old. We want to know on what basis you would like to retain him in Delhi’s Tihar. Moreover, his detention period as per order is about to expire.” The petition, filed by Advocate-on-Record Aakarsh Kamra on behalf of Qayoom, states that the Petitioner is “Senior Advocate with more than 40 years’ standing at the Bar, havingserved as President of the J&K High Court Bar Association for many terms, including from 2014 till the present”. It further contends that the Respondents had detained Qayoom on the intervening night of 4th and 5th August, 2019, under the provisions of Sections 107 read with 151 of the Jammu and Kashmir Code of Criminal Procedure. His detention had then been prolonged by invoking provisions of the J&K PSA, 1978. “Thereafter, an order of detention under the Public Safety Act was passed against the detenu on 07.08.2019, and on 08.08.2019, the Petitioner was taken to Central Jail, Agra, Uttar Pradesh, without any prior notice of intimation, where he was kept in solitary confinement.” The order of the Respondents had been challenged by Qayoom before the Jammu and Kashmir High Court, which had been dismissed on 07.02.2020. Subsequently, an appeal filed before the HC was also dismissed on 28.05.2020. The instant Special Leave Petition before the Apex Court states that “the impugned common judgement and order dated 28.05.2020 is ex facie unsustainable in law as it is premised on stale, irrelevant, remote vague, imprecise and deficient grounds of detention. The impugned judgement and order concluded that most of the grounds in the detention order ‘somewhat clumsy’ which implies that the High Court too found them wanting”. The plea further comments on the fragility of Qayoom’s health on account of him being more than 70 years of age and suffering from life threatening heart ailments showing blockade of artery to the extent of 55-60%, with uncontrolled blood sugar and surviving on one functioning kidney. Furthermore, he sustained a bullet injury in 1995 due to which he suffered cervical vertebral column injury. “In such conditions, the Petitioner is a high risk vulnerable to COVID-19 due to several co-morbid conditions. Yet, the impugned judgment and order rejects the request for transfer of the Petitioner to a jail closer to home in Srinagar conditional on grounds that are repugnant to the constitutional jurisprudence of Article 19 and 21, and cannot be sustained in law.” In light of the above, the Petitioner had filed the instant petition for special leave to appeal against the “illegal, untenable and unconstitutional findings and observations made in the impugned judgement and order.” The matter is now listed on July 27th.

Man arrested for stuffing razor blades into consumers’ pizza dough

first_imgSaco Police DepartmentBy JON HAWORTH, ABC News(SACO, Maine) — A man has been arrested after he was reportedly caught putting razor blades into pizza dough that was then sold to customers, according to the Saco Police Department in Maine.The incident occurred on Oct. 6 when the Saco Hannaford Supermarket, located in Saco, Maine, near to both Kennebunkport and Portland, notified the Saco Police Department regarding a suspected food tampering incident.The customer had reportedly purchased a Portland Pizza Pie Dough and then later found an undisclosed number of razor blades inside the product, according to a statement by the Saco Police Department.The grocery store launched their own investigation and reviewed store security surveillance footage which led them to Nicholas R. Mitchell whom they allegedly caught tampering with the packaging of several Portland Pizza Pie Doughs.“Nicholas Mitchell is a former associate of “It’ll be Pizza company” who manufactures product for Portland Pie,” said the Saco Police Department.Authorities immediately released a physical description of Mitchell as well as a description of his car in an appeal to the public to help them track down the suspect as quickly as possible. They were able to arrest him within about two hours approximately 50 miles away in Dover, New Hampshire, according to a separate police statement announcing his arrest.“This evening the Dover, NH Police Department located Nicholas Mitchell and took him into custody on the outstanding warrant for his arrest in the Hannaford’s Portland Pie pizza dough razor blade case,” the Saco Police Department announced in a statement.It is unclear what Mitchell’s motivations were in this case or if he was targeting anybody specifically.According to Hannaford, customers who purchased Portland Pie pizza dough and Portland Pie cheese sold in the deli at any Hannaford store between Aug. 1, 2020, and Oct. 11, 2020, should not consume the products and may return it to the store for a full refund.Customers are also urged to also check storage areas including freezers for products that may have been purchased and frozen during this timeframe.“Hannaford Supermarkets has issued a recall for all Portland Pie cheese and Portland Pie fresh dough sold in the deli department,” read the statement from Hannaford. “After what is believed to be further malicious tampering incidents involving metal objects inserted into Portland Pie products, Hannaford has removed all Portland Pie products from all store shelves and has paused replenishment of the products indefinitely.”No injuries or illnesses have been reported in connection with this recall and the case currently remains under investigation.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.
