The offering is expected to consist of the sale of existing shares, primarily by the firm’s major shareholder Oboronprom, as well as up to $250m of primary shares in the form of Global Depository Receipts. It will begin an initial public offering (IPO) roadshow in the week of 25 April, and says it will use the proceeds to pay off existing debt and to “fund certain mandatory tender offers for shares in its subsidiaries” which it does not already own.Chief executive Dmitri Petrov said: “The IPO will help us to increase further our global market share and to continue to meet the needs of our customers around the world.”Russian Helicopters is the latest in a string of Russian firms looking to London to float as market volatility, heightened by the Japan nuclear disaster, begins to dissipate.Mid-size bank Nomos confirmed plans to float 20 per cent of its stock, and mobile phone retailer Euroset said this month it is seeking up to $1.52bn. Real estate developer Etalon began roadshows for a $650m float last week. Tuesday 12 April 2011 8:11 pm whatsapp KCS-content last_img read more

first_imgAnalysing its performance, Evolution said revenue development mainly derived from increased commission income from existing customers. “Exceptionally high” activity leads to strong Q3 gains for Evolution 22nd October 2020 | By Robert Fletcher AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter North America’s contribution increased 50.8% to €9.2m, while revenue in other markets increased 62.4% to €15.1m. Evolution paid €10.6m in tax during the first nine months of the year, leaving it with a total profit of €204.0m, some 98.3% more than €102.9m at the end of September last year, with EBITDA also rising 85.7% to €236.0m. Finance Regions: Asia Europe UK & Ireland US “Regardless of the timing for regulation in additional states we know that Evolution is well positioned and that the US market is a long-term project with very high potential,” Carlesund said. Topics: Finance Tags: Evolution Finance Evolution paid €4.2m in taxes during the quarter, leaving it with a total profit of €79.4m, representing an increase of 99.5% on the €39.8m recorded last year. Personnel expenses were Evolution’s main outgoing in Q3, despite falling 6.5% to €31.5m. However, other operating costs were up 41.3% to €17.8m, while depreciation, amortisation and impairment expenses climbed 10.8% to €7.2m. “Our new game show style game – Crazy Time – was launched globally on 1 July and has been a great success; it is our most successful game launch to date,” chief executive Martin Carlesund said. During the third quarter, Evolution signed several new customers in the US, including BetMGM and PointsBet. Shortly after Q3 ended, the supplier also brokered agreements with William Hill and Wynn Interactive. “We see a fantastic potential in combining the two companies and continuing to deliver the best playing experiences for players across the globe,” he said. Revenue from regulated markets accounted for 45.2% of total revenue in Q3. Turning attention to spending in Q3, total operating expenses came to €56.4m, a 7.0% year-on-year rise, that resulted from investment in its expansion efforts. Operating profit for Q3 almost doubled from €42.0m last year to €83.6m, and after taking into account financial items, profit before tax was €83.5m, some 99.3% more than in 2019.center_img “Instant roulette was also launched during the quarter and coming up in Q4 is the launch of craps. We continue to build our portfolio of unique innovative games both within traditional table games as well as game shows.” Carlesund highlighted growth in the US in particular, with the supplier having recently launched in Pennsylvania and has plans in place to further expand its presence in the wider US market. “The past quarter has also been a period of exceptionally high activity operationally within Evolution and after the end of the quarter we are live with our first tables in both Pennsylvania in the US, and Kaunas in Lithuania,” Carlesund said. Expenses for the period were up 11.7% to €168.6m, and after financial items, tax before profit in the nine months was €241.7m, an increase of 122.6% on 2019. NetEnt also posted its Q3 results today (22 October), posting a 119.6% year-on-year rise in third quarter profit, in a period that also saw revenue increase 17.5%. Carlesund also provided a short update on Evolution’s proposed acquisition of NetEnt, whereby it has agreed a deal worth SEK19.6bn to purchase the slots giant. Demand for live casino games continued to grow during the quarter, it added, thanks to its continuous launch of new titles and variations on traditional tables games. “Exceptionally high” activity levels in the third quarter of 2020 saw live dealer giant Evolution report strong growth in revenue and earnings for the period. In terms of how Evolution’s performance impacted its year-to-date results, the supplier said that for the nine months to the end of September, revenue stood at €383.5m, up 47.6% from €259.3m at the same point last year. Email Address Earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA) also jumped 86.4% to €90.4m. Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter “We are still dealing with the limitations imposed by novel coronavirus (Covid-19) but we are slowly coming back towards pre-Covid levels in number of tables.” According to Carlesund, Evolution hopes to close the deal before the end of 2020. Last week, Evolution extended the period for shareholders of NetEnt to accept its acquisition offer until 20 November, in order to allow the UK’s Competition and Markets Authority to investigate the deal. Total operating revenue for the three months to 30 September reached €140.2m (£126.6m/$166.3m), up 47.8% from €94.7m in the third quarter of 2019. “With increased studio capacity together with a continuous development of the very best products and services, we are well positioned to increase our market leadership within live casino going forward,” Carlesund said. In terms of geographical performance, Evolution saw significant growth in Asia, where revenue rocketed 150.4% year-on-year to €34.8m. Revenue from the Nordics slipped 4.9% to €5.8m and UK revenue fell 25.8% to €9.5m, but revenue from the rest of Europe jumped 41.1% to €65.6m.last_img read more

first_imgMonday Nov 3, 2008 Jason Spice coathangers Joe Maddock Cardiff Blues progressed to the EDF Energy Cup semi-finals after a well deserved 24-18 home win over Bath in Cardiff on Friday night.In the second half Bath were awarded a penalty try after wing Joe Maddock was prevented from scoring a try. The resultant kick conversion was pretty interesting too.It all came about from a fantastic passage of play, sparked by the ever impressive kiwi winger Joe Maddock who streaked through the line of defence and looked set to score a fairly simple looking try.As he stepped inside the covering defence though, it was another kiwi, Jason Spice, who stuck out an arm and caught Maddock around the neck, sending him spiralling to the ground.The referee, Nigel Owens, awarded a penalty try but decided against the yellow card as he felt the tackle from Spice was accidental.Maddock, who was probably still a bit dazed following the incident, had his kick charged down from directly in front of the posts, as Richard Mustoe shot off the line. An interesting clip, with some perhaps thinking that Spice should have been yellow carded too. Opinions will vary no doubt.

This urban residence is located in a residential district in downtown Sendai. Constructed out of wood without the use of any pilotis or other supporting structures, the building features an upper floor that protrudes dramatically outward in order to ensure adequate parking space for two cars on a lot with restricted frontage.Save this picture!© Masao NishikawaRecommended ProductsWoodGustafsWood Veneered Wall & Ceiling PanelsWoodEGGERLaminatesWoodSculptformTimber Click-on BattensEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesAlucoilStructural Honeycomb Panels – LarcoreThe size of the windows and other openings on the closed facade of the building have been kept to an absolute minimum as a precaution against crime, as well as a privacy feature. In contrast, the interior of the house, which centers on the internal courtyard, is an open, generous and well-lit expanse of space.The first floor houses several small, comfortable private spaces, such as a bedroom and audio room. Save this picture!© Masao NishikawaThe second floor has been conceived as a single, continuous space filled with natural light, allowing unobstructed lines of sight and free-flowing ventilation. The tatami-floored living room enjoys the “borrowed landscape” (shakkei) of maple trees in the courtyard, creating a tranquil atmosphere that allows the inhabitants to forget the fact that they are in the city. Save this picture!© Masao NishikawaLight reflected by the louvers on the slanted facade help to create a bright interior. The louvers also serve to obstruct lines of sight into the house from the outside while allowing the residents clear, unobstructed views of the exterior from inside the building. Save this picture!© Masao NishikawaThe children’s room that straddles the central courtyard was designed in such a way as to separate it from the “womb” of the main building. The variety of scenery provided by each of these spaces is a particular perk of living in urban residences located in the heart of the city. Save this picture!© Masao NishikawaThe notion of the urban residential building can no longer be confined just to Tokyo: it has now become firmly established as a sensible, intelligent concept that can be applied to all cities. For modern urbanites, the lifestyles resulting from these small spaces offer them a more comfortable living environment than residences that are larger than necessary.Save this picture!SectionProject gallerySee allShow lessArchitecture City Guide: DenverArticlesUpdate: High Line 23 / Neil M.

Embedded in hillside rural village of Kigutu, the 18-bed Kigutu Staff Housing connects East African elemental aesthetics with inventive off-the grid sustainability. Cutting a skewed line in the hillside, the 6000 square foot dormitory captures magnificent mountain views. Currently rebuilding after many years of horrific civil strife, the villagers, in conjunction with an indigenous non-profit, hope that this housing for their medical staff will create a model for the sustainable future of both the community and the country.Save this picture!First Floor PlanThe PorchesThe oversized porch doors in the public space seamlessly connect inside and out, reflecting the typical Kigutu indoor/outdoor communal culture. Similarly the vividly colored entry porches adjacent to each private sleeping room reinforce this semi-permeable sensibility. The porosity of the porches encourages sociability, enhances airflow into the adjacent sleeping rooms, and frames unobstructed romantic transverse views of the landscape.Save this picture!© Iwan BaanThe necessity for SustainabilitySustainability is not an added benefit in Kigutu. It is a necessity. Hence, the same elemental design strategies that establish its aesthetics must also advance energy saving. Since the village is 100% off the municipal grid, a nearby solar array and local solar water heaters, sited in the rear of the building, exclusively power the housing.Save this picture!© Iwan BaanThe location of the building, partially below grade, both reduced excavation costs and takes advantage of the earth’s natural insulation for temperature control. Likewise, the extended roof overhangs provide solar protection to optimize the use of natural daylight, while French drains distribute runoff rainwater for irrigation. The personal porches also create three-sided natural ventilation within the bedrooms, eliminating the need for air conditioning. The position of the windows within these rooms, in both low and high locations, also creates a natural stack effect that amplifies airflow. Yet the greatest accomplishment is the human accomplishment.Save this picture!© Iwan BaanThe villagers, using local bricks, manually built the housing, eliminating the need for fuel consuming machines and creating transferrable job training skills for the Kigutu community.Project gallerySee allShow lessTicollage City / Costa Rica Pavilion at the Venice Biennale 2014Architecture NewsCritical Round-Up: The 2014 RIBA Stirling Prize ShortlistArchitecture NewsProject locationAddress:BurundiLocation to be used only as a reference.

first_img Help by sharing this information Tunisia : RSF asks Tunisian president’s office to respect journalists November 11, 2020 Find out more RSF_en to go further News Reporters Without Borders called today on Tunisian justice and human rights minister Beshir Tekkari to improve the prison conditions of jailed journalist Slim Boukhdir and to review his trial and year-long prison sentence. “His conditions of detention in Sfax prison are not up to international standards,” it said. “He shared a dirty cell with two prisoners who constantly harassed him and has since been put in solitary confinement, which is against Tunisian law and could also seriously damage his mental health.“He has done nothing to justify being put in solitary confinement (under prison regulations), but the authorities may be determined to punish him for what he has written and for his outspokenness. His family is allowed to see him once a week but only briefly (the last time was only for five minutes) and in the presence of the prison governor and several guards who listen to the conversation. The family was not allowed to see him on 24 January, when guards told his wife he did not want to see her, which Boukhdir said later was a lie.“We also deplore his unfair trial by a court in Sakiet Ezzit,” the worldwide press freedom organisation said. “The charges against him must be dropped.” Boukhdir, correspondent of the London-based Al Quds Al Arabi newspaper and the Al-Arabiya TV station’s website, was arrested on 26 November last year and sentenced to a year in prison on 4 December for “insulting a public official,” “offensive behaviour” and “refusing to show identity papers.” He has also written articles for several websites, including Tunisnews and Kantara.

Before being imprisoned he was taken to his home for a search to be carried out and the family computer and his working papers were seized.The cameraman said the intelligence agents wanted to obtain footage of a meeting with the families of two Hamas parliamentarians, held in Israeli jails for two years, whom he had filmed in June 2008.“Palestinian law allows me to do my job without obstruction, but as a result of this signature, the intelligence services have denied me my rights,” he told Reporters Without Borders. “There is nothing to stop them arresting me every time my work displeases them.” “The hounding of this journalist by the Palestinian authority must stop”, the worldwide press freedom organisation said. “He has already been imprisoned three times in the last year for working for a media owned by Hamas.
