Online activity pushes Galaxy to record revenue in Q1

first_img Tags: Online Gambling Online activity pushes Galaxy to record revenue in Q1 16th May 2019 | By contenteditor Casino & games Independent table games provider Galaxy Gaming has cited its internet-based operations as one of the main drivers behind a 23% year-on-year increase to record revenue during the first quarter of the year. Independent table games provider Galaxy Gaming has cited its internet-based operations as one of the main drivers behind a 23% year-on-year increase to record revenue during the first quarter of the year.Revenue for the three months through to March 31, 2019 amounted to $5.3m (£4.1m/€4.7m), up from $4.4m in the same period last year. This was the first time Galaxy surpassed $5m in revenue in the first quarter.Galaxy put this increase primarily down to higher revenue from three areas of the business: its internet-based gaming activities, premium games and the Bonus Jackpot System due to additional game placements.The majority of revenue was generated within North America and the Caribbean, with this total up from $3.5m in Q1 of 2018 to $3.8m this year, while there was significant growth in Europe, with revenue jumping from $857,885 to $1.5m.Galaxy also noted an increase in costs and expenses for Q1, with this amount up from $3.4m to $4.6m. This was primarily due to a $955,800 year-on-year rise in selling, general and administrative expenses, with this figure up from $2.6m to $3.5m.The provider said this was a result of higher costs associated with the strategic alternatives review for the quarter, as well as higher compensation and related expense due to higher revenue and continued investment in personnel.Research and development expenses were also up from $193,402 to $299,180, while stock-based compensation costs climbed from $166,478 to $223,604.Although adjusted earnings before interest, tax, deprecation and amortisation (EBITDA) increased 30% year-on-year to $2.0m, higher costs in Q1 hit net income, with this slipping from $536,708 to $460,664.Income before provision for income taxes also fell from $681,577 to $561,678.Todd Cravens, president and CEO of Galaxy, praised the provider’s performance in the three-month period, citing growth across all continuing product segments and “very strong increases” in its progressives and in our igaming business“We hope that this momentum will continue in 2019 as we move forward in seeking licenses to sell in jurisdictions where we have not previously been able to do so,” he said.CFO Harry Hagerty added: “Q1 showed a continuation of recent trends: year-over-year increases in revenue and adjusted EBITDA, an increase in cash and a decrease in debt.“We were very comfortably in compliance with the financial covenants in our bank credit agreement. Our balance sheet will change significantly as a result of the share redemption we completed in May 2019, but we believe the company has several options to help it manage the significant increase in leverage.”center_img Topics: Casino & games Finance Table games Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Email Address AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterlast_img read more

This project is a renovation and extension of a 30 years old wooden house. We tried to see this dense neighborhood of wooden houses as a “compact cluster of the wooden frames”, which then seemed to us like an editable landscape. Save this picture!Courtesy of miCo.The wooden frame structure made it possible to add or subtract beams and columns, setting free the renewal of the building. The wooden frame structure allows for the addition and subtraction of beams and columns to fit the composition of the family and its current purpose, letting us freely renew the house. The issues of the old wooden house were solved by altering the framework without depending on the site or the existing building. Rather than creating a brand-new view, we tried to make an aged building which changes slowly with the landscape. Save this picture!Courtesy of miCo.The site has very narrow access to the street and is surrounded by similar houses. The neighbor on the back side of the house is currently a small field, but it will be built up in near future, which might make the site shaded and poorly ventilated. Save this picture!© Koichi TorimuraIn response to this we decided to make three small separate units. One of which is an addition and the other two were created with a division of the existing house. These gestures made the scale of building smaller and reduced tightness with the neighboring buildings. The spacing created from the separate units gave each volume an adjacent exterior, as to solve the shading and ventilation problems. Save this picture!© Koichi TorimuraIn contrast to each unit there is a connecting transparent volume, as a result the three separated units become one spacious room. However this large room is hard to imagine from the exterior of the building due to its fragmented appearance. We hope this “renewal of the wooden framework”provides some motivation to make change in dense residential landscape of the big city.

Journalist gunned down in San Pablo City

first_imgNews August 22, 2002 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Journalist gunned down in San Pablo City PhilippinesAsia – Pacific to go further Organisation News Reporters Without Borders (Reporters Sans Frontières) today protested the murder earlier in the day of TV presenter and magazine editor Sonny Alcantara, who was killed by a bullet to the head in San Pablo City (80 kilometers south of Manila) in a continuing climate of impunity for those who attack journalists. Persons close to the victim said he had felt under threat because of articles criticising the city’s former mayor.”Sonny Alcantara is the third Philippine journalist to be murdered since the beginning of 2002″, Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Robert Ménard said in a letter to Interior Minister José D. Lina. “The predators of press freedom act with such impunity in certain regions of the Philippines that they show no inhibitions about attacking those who dare to denounce their crimes and corruption”, Ménard said.Referring to the investigations into the murders of journalists Benjaline Hernandez and Edgar Damalerio, which are blocked despite abundant evidence implicating military and police personnel, the letter urged the minister to intervene in order to ensure that both those behind this latest killing and those who carried it out are identified. It also asked that Reporters Without Borders be kept informed of the progress of the police enquiry.Alcantara was the editor of the local bimonthly newspaper Kokus and presented a political affairs programme called “Quo Vadis San Pablo” on the private cable TV channel Celestron Cable. He was killed as he was leaving his home in the morning of 22 August. According to a San Pablo journalist questioned by Reporters Without Borders, an unidentified person called out to Alcantara as he was leaving his home, then pulled out a pistol and shot him in the head at point-blank range. Alcantara died on the spot while the assailant made off.The shooting was witnessed by several persons who have so far refused to testify publicly for fear of reprisals. The police have opened an enquiry under the authority of the San Pablo City chief of police, Colonel Ernesto Cuison.According to his widow, Alcantara had been receiving threats by telephone and letter for the past several weeks. In both his magazine and his TV programme, he had regularly criticised the municipal opposition, especially former mayor Vicente Amante, a very influential businessman in the region who is reputedly close to certain criminal organisations. A person close to Alcantara voiced the suspicion to Reporters Without Borders that Amante could have been behind this killing. At least 15 people have been murdered in San Pablo City since the start of 2000.

Private press victim of deteriorating political climate

first_img ZambiaAfrica News June 17, 2005 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Private press victim of deteriorating political climate “Unless this happens, suspicion which would undoubtedly fall on the Zambian police, could aggravate a situation that is already quite unstable.” March 12, 2019 Find out more Zambia : Outspoken Zambian TV channel suspended for 30 days November 27, 2020 Find out more to go further Reports News Help by sharing this information March 29, 2020 Find out more Follow the news on Zambia Reporters Without Borders has expressed concerned about growing tension engulfing opposition media after a radio journalist was questioned for reading a listener’s fax on air and newspaper sellers were brutally attacked by presidential party activists.The press freedom organisation urged the Lusaka police chief, in a letter, not to allow the press to become a scapegoat.Anthony Mukwita, a freelance journalist, presenter on privately-owned Radio Phoenix and correspondent for Reporters Without Borders, was questioned by state police for one hour on 15 June 2005 for having read out live on 10 June a fax sent by an anonymous listener. Its message was a warning to the government of Levy Mwanawasa against the possibility of a reappearance of the same discontent that motivated a coup attempt in 1997.An officer from the Lusaka division, accompanied by two detectives, questioned Anthony Mukwita at the offices of the organisation, the Media Institute of Southern Africa (MISA). They asked the journalist to give them the fax that had been read out on air and to reveal where it came from. The journalist refused and only agreed to make a written statement in the presence of his lawyer.On 15 June, Radio Phoenix listeners were particularly stirred by the withdrawal of charges against a former minister in a corruption case. This decision caused a public outcry, all the more so, since from 2002 the government had officially made the struggle against corruption a priority.This same news was picked up by The Post, a Lusaka-based privately-owned weekly that said in its editorial, “Mr. Levy is a liar and everything linked to his presidency is nothing but fraud, fabrication and lies”. On the same day the newspaper was the target of government supporters. The newspaper’s sellers were attacked by a group apparently close to the ruling Multi-Party Democracy party (MDD). The assailants, wielding machetes, seized more than 2,000 copies of the 15 June issue while others shouted out that the weekly had insulted the president.”The press are often a convenient scapegoat when the political climate in a country deteriorates”, Reporters Without Borders said in a letter to the regional police chief in Lusaka, Chendela Musonda.”The two recent incidents reported in Zambia seem to us worrying in this context. The interrogation of a journalist and the assault on newspaper sellers are signals that we would not like to see repeated. That is why we are asking you, on one hand to ensure that the services that you are in charge of observe the strictest legality in dealings with the press and respect the principle of protection of sources of information. On the other hand, we have noted your actions aimed at punishing the perpetrators of the assaults on the sellers of the Post. We nevertheless ask you to see to it that these investigations are thorough and independent.

Donegal. NeuroCONCISE is a cutting edge neurotechnology research & innovation company, based at the Magee Campus in Ulster University in Derry. NeuroCONCISE provide high quality assistive neurotechnology related services and products such as movement-free diagnostics, communication and control processes which address the rehabilitation needs of millions of patients, who are severely physically impaired due to disease or brain injury.Renowned, award winning, global contemporary Irish Artist, Sharon McDaid from Silver Birch Gallery & Studio, based in Carndonagh will also travel to Boston with the delegation.

She has had a passion for the study and practice of art therapy and her art forms part of many collections in hospitals, medical and rehabilitation clinics providing therapy to patients.Sharon McDaid and Professor Damien Coyle’s research and future visions have already identified links. Combining Sharon McDaid’s Art Therapy techniques and creativity with NeuroCONCISE’s cutting edge neurotechnology products and assistive technology, they believe that they can can collaborate to creative expression and art expression technologies that enable people with restricted movement to benefit from the therapeutic benefits of art.It is widely known that art therapy and assistive technologies have helped with post traumatic stress disorders and patients who have suffered brain injuries and physical injuries causing disability.  Patients with psychiatric and neurological disorders have experienced stress reduction and wellness through art therapies.Sharon McDaid is really excited to be travelling to Boston with this delegation from the North West of Ireland, not only with the hope of developing her own contacts in the creative and artistic sector in Boston and throughout the US, but to network with a wider network of entrepreneurs.Professor Damien Coyle is CEO of NeuroCONCISE Ltd, the company he founded in 2016 to build wearable neurotechnology that is underpinned by award winning research and development that he conducted over 15 years at Ulster University. NeuroCONCISE’s technology non-invasively measures and translates brainwaves into control signals using advanced algorithms to enable people to interact with technology and communicate without moving and has applications in rehabilitation, diagnostics, augmentative and assistive communication devices and entertainment.Damien is also Professor of Neurotechnology at Ulster University, where he is currently Director of the Intelligent Systems Research Centre and Research Director in the School of Computing, Engineering and Intelligent Systems. Damien has published over 100 research papers in areas such as computational intelligence/AI, bio-signal processing, computational neuroscience, neuroimaging and brain-computer interface (BCI) applications and has won a number of prestigious international awards for his research.NeuroCONCISE has established partnerships with clinics providing assistive technology and have partners with distribution networks across a number of countries but is very keen to make links with key stakeholders in the USA.
