The deal will strengthen 888’s UK presence, its CEO claims, while JPJ says the sale will allow it to pursue a single-brand strategy focused around Jackpotjoy. center_img 888 Holdings has agreed a deal to acquire JPJ Group’s Mandalay operating business, including the Costa Bingo brand, for a cash consideration of £18m (€20.6m/$23.3m).The London-listed operator will acquire a range of bingo assets from Jet Management Group and Jet Media. These holding companies form the Mandalay operating unit, named after Mandalay Media, from which JPJ, trading under the Intertain brand, acquired the bingo assets in 2014. 888 has worked closely with the Mandalay brands since 2009, supplying its Dragonfish bingo platform to Mandalay Media, then JPJ Group. For the twelve months to December 31, 2018, the Mandalay operating unit generated revenue of £11m, and profit before tax of £3.7m. Itai Pazner, chief executive of 888, said the acquisition of the brands will further strengthen the group’s position in the UK online bingo market.“The group continues to deliver its stated strategy of expanding across global regulated markets,” said Pazner, who was last month confirmed as 888’s new CEO after Itai Freiberger stepped down from the London-listed operator. “This expansion is underpinned by organic growth initiatives supported by exploring value-enhancing M&A.“Having been developed on Dragonfish, the Group’s first-class B2B platform, we are confident that consolidating these brands into our existing B2C portfolio will deliver synergies and growth opportunities by applying the full extent of 888’s core capabilities in product, marketing and customer relationship management to their operations.”888 will pay an initial £12m in cash on closing of the acquisition, followed by a further £6m in cash by September of this year.JPJ Group said the sale would allow it to develop a single-brand strategy in its core UK market, based around its flagship Jackpotjoy brand, which would optimise returns on marketing investment.However, analysts at Regulus Partners have questioned the acquisition, citing Mandalay’s underperformance in recent JPJ results, with revenue down 24% per year since 2015 in what they describe as a “relatively buoyant” bingo market.Regulus identifies the purchase as a “principally defensive on 888’s part”, noting that JPJ has got rid of an underperforming asset “it had little control over and little hope of turning around”.The deal is expected to close by the end of March, once an employee consultation process is concluded.Image: Digby Fire Department Tags: Online Gambling 19th February 2019 | By contenteditor Email Addresslast_img read more

Mohamed Haouas sent off against Scotland

first_img Mohamed Haouas sent off against ScotlandFrance prop Mohamed Haouas was sent off in the 37th minute of the 28-17 Six Nations defeat by Scotland at BT Murrayfield.The incident came late in the first half as Scotland attacked in the French 22. When referee Paul Williams blew for a Scotland penalty, a scuffle broke out between several players from both teams.A TMO review showed Haouas tussling with Jamie Ritchie and then that he had landed a punch to the head of the Scotland flanker. It was a clear red-card offence and Haouas was sent off. You can watch the incident below. The April issue of Rugby World magazine – focusing on a new generation of Six Nations stars – is out now.Follow Rugby World on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. France arrived in Edinburgh on the back of victories over England, Italy and Wales, but they were unable to maintain their Grand Slam bid having been reduced to 14 men for more than 40 minutes.Scotland led 14-7 at half-time after Sean Maitland scored a try just before the break and had performed well in the opening 40 minutes, limiting France’s opportunities with a forceful defensive effort. Flash point: Mohamed Haouas punches Jamie Ritchie (Getty Images) LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS France’s Six Nations Grand Slam bid over as they lose 28-17 at BT Murrayfield France’s first-half points came from a Damian Penaud try created beautifully by Antoine Dupont. Watch it here…France, who also lost fly-half Romain Ntamack after less than ten minutes when he went for an HIA and didn’t return, actually showed more intensity in attack in the second half but were unable to overcome that numerical disadvantage.Maitland crossed for a second try shortly after the break and Stuart McInally added another around the hour mark to give Scotland a 28-10 lead.A try from France captain Charles Ollivon did narrow the gap but they could not secure the losing bonus point that would have allowed them to win the championship if they beat Ireland in their final game next weekend.With all the postponements due to the coronavirus outbreak it is unclear when we will know the winner of the 2020 Six Nations.Haouas’s red card follows the sending off of England centre Manu Tuilagi against Wales at Twickenham yesterday.He is the 14th France player to be sent off in a Test match and the second in less than sixth months. Sebastian Vahaamahina was dismissed in the World Cup quarter-final against Wales for elbowing Aaron Wainwright in a maul. Ill-discipline again proved costly for France.last_img read more

FBI arrests ‘Traveling Bandit’ wanted for allegedly robbing 7 banks in 6 states

first_imgFBI(FRUITA, Colorado) — The FBI has arrested a man who allegedly robbed seven banks in six different states in less than a month.According to a tweet from FBI Louisville, 49-year-old Jason Lee Robinson of Pikeville, Kentucky, was arrested Thursday without incident in Fruita, Colorado. Robinson was nicknamed the “Traveling Bandit” during the search.Robinson’s string of robberies began Dec. 28, 2018, at Capital Bank in Aventura, Florida. According to an affidavit, Robinson took approximately $1,900 from the bank after giving the teller a note demanding the money and indicating he had a weapon. Robinson then took the money and note and left the bank, the affidavit said.The FBI said that between Jan. 2 and Jan. 17, Robinson allegedly committed six more robberies at banks in North Carolina, Tennessee, Alabama, Illinois and Utah. The FBI’s wanted poster for Robinson said he usually gave a note when committing the robberies. According to the affidavit, officials reviewed surveillance video from nearby locations before and after the robbery in Florida, leading investigators to recover a sweatshirt that Robinson had worn. Investigators also spoke with a teller of a different bank Robinson was seen entering before the robbery. Robinson had a “country accent,” according to the teller, and was told by Robinson that he was from Kentucky. The affidavit said the FBI linked the robberies together after determining the suspect had the same physical appearance and Robinson was seen as a possible match “after law enforcement reviewed recent federal prison inmate releases of males similar in description to the robbery suspect.” The affidavit also said the suspect in the video surveillance images resembled Robinson based on photographs of him as well as tattoos that were visible on his arms.Robinson’s probation officer said images she was shown from a robbery in Illinois on Jan. 14 appeared to look like him but she was not 100 percent sure, according to the affidavit. Robinson’s family also described the vehicle he was driving, which the affidavit said matched the getaway vehicle seen in surveillance video, and a woman identifying herself as Robinson’s ex-wife called the FBI tip line after seeing the photograph in the FBI news release about him. The affidavit said Robinson had been convicted in 2009 on various charges in the Eastern District of Kentucky. It also said that according to U.S. Bureau of Prison records, Robinson was on supervised release as of November 2018 and was supposed to be restricted from leaving the state of Kentucky.Robinson is currently being held in the Mesa County Detention Facility. He was charged in the criminal complaint with bank robbery for the Dec. 28 robbery. It was unclear if he had a lawyer.The FBI said no one was injured in any of the incidents.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more
