Acquisitions power record quarter for Better Collective

first_img Affiliate marketing giant Better Collective reported record revenue of €17.1m (£14.7m/$19.0m) for the third quarter of 2019, a 53.9% year-on-year increase which the business said was largely attributable to acquisitions in the US and Sweden.In December 2018, Better Collective agreed to acquire Swedish affiliate marketing company the Ribacka Group, which runs sports betting and casino marketing sites in Sweden, including Speltips.se, for €30m.In May, the company increased its US presence with the acquisition of Rical LLC, operator of the RotoGrinders and SportsHandle portals, for $21m. Rical LLC’s brands started out in the fantasy sports sector, but now also provide affiliate marketing for online betting and casino.Meanwhile, Better Collective also said that strong growth of new depositing customers (NDCs) to more than 85,000, up 27%, contributed to revenue growth.Revenue share income made up 69% of the company’s revenue, or €11.8m. Cost per acquisition (CPA) revenue brought in €2.4m, while subscription sales in the US contributed €1.4m of revenue. Other sources contributed €1.5m of revenue.However, the acquisitions also led to increased costs. Direct costs relating to revenue rose 40.4% year-on-year to €1.7m, while staff costs rose 70.2% to €5.5m. Depreciation costs increased almost four-fold to €202,000, while other external expenses rose 55.4% to €2.9m.Better Collective’s operating profit before amortisation and special items rose 42.9% to €6.8m. Amortisation costs rose 24.3% to €1.3m, bringing operating profit before special items to €5.5m, up 48%.After a €421,000 expenditure on special items, Better Collective’s operating profit totalled €5.1m, 41.1% more than in 2018.The affiliate group made €412,000 from financial income, but incurred €1m of financial expenses, leading to a pre-tax profit of €4.5m, up 31.7%.After paying €1.2m in tax, Better Collective posted an overall profit of €3.3m, 32.2% more than in 2018.The third quarter also saw Better Collective agree a new media partnership with British newspaper the Daily Telegraph, as well as with New Jersey-based news site NJ.com.“Q3 is normally a seasonally weak quarter with lower player activity and with most major sports leagues pausing in July and part of August,” Better Collective chief executive Jesper Søgaard said. “With that in mind, I am happy to see such strong business performance with the highest quarterly revenue in the company’s history.”“I am very proud of Better Collective being the chosen partner of such prominent media brands. I have high expectations that these partnerships will become an important part of our business in the future.” Finance AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Topics: Finance Marketing & affiliates Affiliate marketing giant Better Collective reported record revenue of €17.1m for the third quarter of 2019, a 53.9% year-on-year increase, which the business said was largely attributable to acquisitions in the US and Sweden.

You can also catch the live updates on insidesport.coIPL 2021 Remaining Matches: Status of overseas players for September windowIPL Dates & Schedule: Expanding to 10-team IPL on the cards  With the BCCI approving the expansion of IPL from 8 to 10 teams from IPL 2022, the Indian board needed to increase the window from the current 54 days to at least 76 days to accommodate at least 76 matches. That extra 15-day window has been a problem as it needs the ICC to free a chunk of the calendar as during the period, not many countries play cricket for the sake of IPL.However, the additional window will be required only if the BCCI manages to get its two teams by the end of 2021. For that, the BCCI was expected to call a tender in May but due to the 2nd wave of COVID-19 pandemic, the plans had to be delayed. At present, the BCCI still aims to induct two new teams with a tender process that it expects to call after the IPL 2021 is completed.Also Read: IPL 2021 Phase 2: BCCI’s Rajeev Shukla says all sorted for IPL 2021, ‘will be played between Sep 19 to Oct 15’Current IPL window is for 52-54 daysFor the additional two teams, the window required is of 76 daysBCCI yet to decide on the expanded format whether it will be round-robin or five teams in two groupsFor round-robin format, 94 matches will be played including the playoffs and the finalFor 62 days or less, BCCI will need to have a lot more doubleheaders – which will not go down well with most of the commercial stakeholdersIPL 2021 Dates & Schedule: Bigger question is completing IPL 2021 and foreign players’ availabilityHowever, more than calling a tender and inducting two new teams, the Sourav Ganguly-led board is focused on completing the IPL 2021. BCCI had to move 31 matches of IPL 2021 to the UAE after the tournament was suspended midway through the season due COVID-19 outbreak.The BCCI’s Vice President Rajeev Shukla has said that the board plans to host the remaining IPL 2021 in UAE between September 19 to October 15. However, the dates and schedule for IPL 2021 Phase 2 have not been announced officially yet.Furthermore, the other headache the board has is the foreign players’ availability. During the September-October window, England, Bangladesh and New Zealand will be busy playing bilateral series and warm-up matches for the ICC T20 World Cup and thus players’ availability will be a concern.Also Read: IPL 2021 Phase 2: आईपीएल के आयोजन को लेकर बढ़ सकती हैं BCCI की मुश्किलें, ICC टूर्नामेंट को 15 अक्टूबर तक बढ़ाने की अनुमति देने से कर सकता है मनाWhile Cricket Australia is yet to comment on the players’ availability, most of the cricketers including Steve Smith, Glenn Maxwell and David Warner are likely to be rested, ruling them out of IPL 2021 Phase 2. Furthermore, with Caribbean Premier League (CPL 2021) set to finish only on September 19, at least nine West Indian cricketers could be unavailable for the first week.BCCI will need to sort that out while also convince ECB to release at least a few players, who might not be picked for their tour of Bangladesh.IPL 2021 Teams Points Table 5 Rajasthan Royals734-0.196 Cricket Cricket WTC Final 2021 LIVE: 5 Ways to watch India vs New Zealand World Test Championship LIVE Streaming for free by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May Like247 Sports50 Best College Football Players Of All Time247 SportsPhotoStickHow To Back Up All Your Old Photos In SecondsPhotoStickcio.comUnlocking the Success of Digital Transformation with Active Intelligencecio.comIPL 2021 Phase 2 moved to UAE, confirms BCCI Vice-President Rajiv Shukla- The remainder of IPL 2021 has been shifted to the United Arab Emirates, BCCI Vice-President Rajiv Shukla told ANI on Saturday.

This will mean a longer window would be required to complete the season. According to reports, BCCI has got informal approval from ICC on the same.Earlier, BCCI, ECB (England and Wales Cricket Board) and CA (Cricket Australia) opposed ICC’s proposal of increasing ICC tournaments and bringing back the ICC Champions Trophy. However, all three have agreed as per a Cricbuzz report.IPL Dates & Schedule – BCCI’s tradeoff with ICC? This is a clear change of stance for the earlier stand of the board. Sourav Ganguly, BCCI’s president said that ICC should follow FIFA’ World Cup model and stick to the “less is more” mantra. But things have changed since.“Sometimes less is more in life. So, we have got to be careful with that. And the football World Cup happens every four years and you see the madness.

Prisons and class war

first_imgThis is a slightly edited version of a talk given during the “What Road To Socialism?” webinar held by Workers World Party on May 16.Abolitionist Ruth Wilson Gilmore lays out in her book, “Golden Gulag,” the political climate in the state of California that gave rise to prison expansion. California had an incredibly huge and diverse economy preceding its prison boom, in which the number of people behind bars increased 450 percent between the 1980s and early 2000s.Prior to this prison boom, California in the 1970s saw heavy policing and the end of the Vietnam war. There was high unemployment and high inflation. The series of crises coming out of this period produced all kinds of surpluses — of workers, land, finance capital, as well as a surplus of state capacity that was rapidly shifting from social welfare to domestic warfare.Even as crime began to slow, societal production was being arranged around prison expansion. Republicans and Democrats alike were being elected on the false premise that they could keep people safe by locking up criminals. But we know that just exacerbates existing inequalities, disappears people and destroys communities.According to the Sentencing Project, 70 million people in the U.S. are living with criminal convictions. Simply because they’ve been convicted of a crime, the majority of these people are barred from holding most jobs. Added to this are the 10 million workers, estimated by Pew Research, who are not documented to work in the U.S. because they are migrants. The sum total, 80 million people, is nearly half of the U.S. labor force, mostly people of color, but also one-third white, who are criminalized in ways that are detrimental to all working people.New Orleans: historic strikeIn New Orleans, sanitation workers are now on a historic strike asking for hazard pay and protective gear. Instead of having their demands met, they have been replaced by incarcerated workers who will be paid at most 13 percent of the sanitation workers’ hourly pay of $10.25, or $1.33 per hour under state law, and will likely not receive adequate protection either. (Payday Report, May 9) This effectively pits already exploited sectors of our class against one another.Wilson Gilmore describes the structure of racism as vulnerability to premature death, which we see so starkly in this period of the global pandemic. Those with access to centuries of stolen resources are generally able to skirt spaces where they would come into contact with the virus and other life-shortening mechanisms like lack of access to health care.In our organizing as the Texas Death Penalty Abolition Movement, one of the only groups in our state that opposes the use of capital punishment on the political grounds that its use is structurally both racist and anti-poor, this phrase often comes up: “Those who don’t have the capital, get the punishment!”In places like Texas, the killing capital of the country, which leads in the number of legal lynchings, we feel the afterlives of enslavement embedded into the social order of control known as mass criminalization. From the plantations during slavery to convict leasing of labor to modern-day prisons, this oppression has existed.While we acknowledge that people of color are disproportionately affected by these institutions, Wilson Gilmore said, “[A]nti-criminalization and effects of perpetual punishment have to be central to any kind of political, economic change that benefits working people and their communities, or benefits poor people, whether or not they’re working, and their communities.” (“Prisons and Class Warfare,” interview, historicalmaterialism.org, Aug. 2, 2018)What has happened in California is different from what has occurred in Illinois, Georgia, Louisiana, New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Texas and elsewhere. And in the 38 countries where the U.S. has had its hand in shaping policing and prisons. These differences mean local assessments are needed.Revolution and abolition are ongoing processes. We must not stop remaking ourselves and the world. Otherwise, we risk shifting or mutating the means of colonial and capitalist world-making further into the future. Abolition of these institutions is about presence and the connections and structures we build with one another along the way. Abolition is a theory of social change; it is a strategy, and it’s about making things.Abolitionists use tactics like divestment campaigns, prison moratoriums and building a caring community, by shifting the fruits of our labor to address the root causes of harm and suffering.United struggle blocks new prisonsOne of the many ways California abolitionists were able to halt the state’s self-described “biggest [prison system] in the history of the world” was by aligning against powerful governors and prison guard unions and by organizing the California State Employees Association, which is part of an enormous public sector union in the state.Together abolitionists and workers slowed down a state that had opened a prison every year for 23 years almost to a halt — where it only opened one prison between 1999 and 2011. They made it impossible for new jails and prisons to be constructed.All the different sectors of our collective class are bound to one another. Our liberation lives on in our ability to use all levers and all tactics to work across and with the things that make us different. Our liberation is bound to unemployed people, undocumented workers, incarcerated workers and to each other.A broad understanding of class and the myriad interlocking oppressions working against us is necessary in our fight to resist mass criminalization and the further categorizing of people into more easily conquerable sectors. An injury to one is an injury to all.As Audre Lorde said, “Revolution is not a one-time event. It is becoming always vigilant for the smallest opportunity to make a genuine change in established, outgrown responses; for instance, it is learning to address each other’s differences with respect.” (“Learning from the ’60s,” speech, Malcolm X commemoration weekend, Harvard University, February 1982)Crissman (they/them) is a member of the WWP Houston branch and a co-editor of “Tear Down the Walls,” the prisoner page of WW newspaper. They write and organize around prison abolition, anti-imperialism and the environment.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
