Nuvei’s SafeCharge deal: a hint of what’s to come

first_img24th May 2019 | By Joanne Christie This week’s acquisition is likely to kick off a wave of consolidation among payment service providers in the US and northern Europe, says Julian Buhagiar, co-founder of RB Capital.News of Nuvei’s SafeCharge acquisition must have lifted the spirits (not to mention aspirations) of quite a few PSP players in the market.A full cash transaction, backed by a leading Canadian payments firm with plans to enter the US market, signals a possible emerging trend to solidify payment-based positions in the North American markets at a time when the medium-term interstate gambling payment prospects are yet to settle. To be clear, this is not a gambling-specific acquisition. With customers such as McDonald’s, Domino’s, El Al and Nespresso, SafeCharge has a significantly diversified customer base, particularly as an alternative payment processor.Nonetheless, with clients such as GVC/Ladbrokes already on board, this acquisition is expected to kickstart a drive to consolidate PSPs in the US and northern Europe. The longer-term play here is clear; the payments market is heavily saturated, and increasing regulation will squeeze out the smaller players sooner rather than later. Thus there will be a short-term land grab to acquire the larger cash-generating businesses. And this is a good time to buy, if larger players are willing to hedge their bets as to where the US (and EU) PSP markets will be heading. One immediate question to ask is what role Nuvei will now play in its new European deal flow? It would be a quick win to tap into the northern markets with a view to upselling. The opportunity here is significant, not least in the alternative payments sector, but also in ensuring newly acquired clients can benefit from the plethora of services on offer.More pertinently though, what does this mean for other payment providers in these territories? Will this incentivise the likes of Trustly and Skrill to make a move, or will they wait and see how the first movers consolidate their acquisitions?The money seems to be on the former; there are already rumours of other (larger) sale discussions being had, and another significant acquisition will likely happen in the coming months, if not weeks. A rapid set of acquisitions will quickly increase the value of these players, so we will likely see a significant amount of first-movers this year. Perhaps though, the question on most gaming investors’ minds is, with SafeCharge sold, is this truly the end of Teddy Sagi’s involvement in gaming? Probably not. While the move into other markets has been a key strategy of Sagi’s, his increase in wealth (as can be evidenced from the recent Sunday Times Rich List 2019) has been mostly through gaming-related asset ventures.It is thus not unreasonable to expect more gaming-based enterprises in the medium term to have some form of his involvement, at least at arm’s length. Julian Buhagiar is an investor, CEO & board director to multiple ventures in gaming, fintech & media markets. He has lead investments, M&As and exits to date in excess of $370m.

Takeover: Why the Codemasters share price just surged 20%

first_img The Codemasters (LSE:CDM) share price has been rising steadily this year, but it soared 20% in a single day on Monday.  The AIM-listed video game developer has had a stellar 2020. Shareholders have seen a brilliant  115% return this year, despite everything that has happened in the world.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…So what specifically happened to light a rocket under the Codemasters share price? Codemasters racing aheadThe share price jumped 108p, from 532p to 640p, in little under an hour on Monday 14 December. It’s a stunning surge for the racing-focused video game publisher.The stock market reacted strongly to news that Codemasters had accepted a takeover bid from Electronic Arts. It means a potentially huge payday for existing investors. There has been a bidding war for the Warwickshire-based publisher, with the world’s biggest video game companies duking it out. In November, Take-Two Interactive put forward a cash and shares deal worth £750m ($980m). At the time, Codemasters said it had reached a formal agreement with the American giant. But Electronic Arts swooped in with a 604p cash offer for every Codemasters share. That values the company at £945m or $1.2 billion.And the Codemasters board has changed its recommendation from accepting Take Two’s offer to Electronic Arts instead. Take-Two could still come back with a better offer, matching the Electronic Arts valuation. So there could still be value in looking at the Codemasters shares even at this elevated level.Big profits, big valueThat there’s value in buying AIM-listed gaming firms should come as no surprise. Video games, playable both online and offline, have soared in popularity during lockdown. They provide spectacular entertainment and easy escapism for the bored among us.As Hargreaves Lansdown analyst Susannah Streeter said: “The pandemic has caused another major surge in the popularity of gaming.”So there is a massive growing audience for video game producers. Alongside a new army of followers, changes to the way games are distributed has produced incredible money-making opportunities.Codemasters going digitalOver the last five to 10 years there has been a strategic shift away from boxed games to digital downloads.Distribution has switched away from brick-and-mortar video games stores to hugely popular platforms like Steam, Xbox Live, and Playstation Now. This lower cost of production means margins for video game publishers are increasing. In turn, the lack of physical game copies means ever improving profit figures for small producers, allowing for easier earnings growth.Warren Buffett would be a fan of these companies for their economic moat. That means they have high margins and protected IP that no other company is legally allowed to sell.As highly-profitable enterprises with stonking margins, these UK video game developers have become potential takeover targets.More to come?We have seen some major acquisitions in the video games industry recently. Most notable is the Microsoft $7.5bn takeover of Fallout and Elder Scrolls developer Bethesda and its parent company Zenimax.I expect more mergers and acquisitions to come in future.

European Champions Cup player analysis: Henry Pyrgos, Glasgow Warriors

first_imgAs the below screenshot demonstrates, Pyrgos achives this exactly. Tommy Seymour can storm forward to snare the catch ahead of Semesa Rokoduguni with Duncan Weir is following up to secure the ensuing ruck.From here, everything is about quick thinking and identifying space. Aware of the opportunity out wide, Pyrgos tells a support runner to take the ball from the base of the breakdown and pop it to him, allowing a faster, stronger pass from the hip rather than the floor:Though the ball drifts slightly behind first receiver Mark Bennett on its 20-metre trajectory, Bath’s two defenders Jonathan Joseph and Anthony Watson (circled in white) are isolated and facing a classic three-on-two. Latching onto Stuart Hogg’s fine offload, Maitland can squeeze over.Pyrgos’ role in the Warriors’ next try was all about decision-making:It feels slightly wrong to call this a quick-tap penalty. Pyrgos does not set off until about three seconds after referee Jerome Garces has awarded the free-kick. Rather than instinct, this is more a measured piece of pragmatism. Walking back through his forwards is quite stealthy, but Pyrgos is clearly convinced by a call from Hogg on the blindside – as this glance suggests:Confidence and trust in his teammate’s communication are pivotal aspects here, both attributes of a man in form. Glasgow’s European campaign, which next encompasses a trip to Montpellier, and Scotland’s autumn will benefit from a Pyrgos in this sort of mood. TAGS: Glasgow WarriorsHighlight As Paul Ackford pointed out in his typically forthright column in Saturday’s Times, three of the five men to captain their country to a Rugby World Cup victory have been forwards. That much is hardly surprising – where better than the trenches to brave mud and bullets and set an example?More interesting is the fact that the remaining two figures to hold aloft the Webb Ellis trophy were scrum-halves – Antipodean pair David Kirk and Nick Farr-Jones won the World Cup in 1987 and 1991 respectively. Number nines often become the heartbeat of their team regardless of any official role. Still, this provides a striking illustration of how the position breeds leadership.National service: Pyrgos on Scotland duty in 2013Henry Pyrgos skippered Glasgow Warriors on Saturday in European Champions Cup the absence of talisman Josh Strauss, and embodied everything that went right in an exceptional 37-10 thumping of Bath. Sparky and accurate, he sent a compelling message to Vern Cotter ahead of the autumn.The former Loughborough University student was strangely deemed surplus to requirements for Scotland’s latest Six Nations campaign, but should certainly build on an impressive summer tour and see game-time against Argentina, New Zealand and Tonga this November.A more incisive running threat than Greig Laidlaw, he has developed his distribution and ability to mobilise the pack as well. With South Africa and Samoa lurking in a beastly World Cup pool – as well Japan and USA, who can no longer be written off as merely plucky underdogs – Scotland could use Pyrgos to inject pace and off-the-cuff invention into phase-play.This weekend, his all-round effort was accomplished and assured – the performance of someone thriving in added responsibility. Indeed, Pyrgos’ contribution to Glasgow’s second and third tries encapsulated exactly what he can offer in terms of game-breaking verve. Bath’s starting side contained no fewer than seven full internationals, so the notion that such effectiveness might be replicated at Test level is hardly farfetched.First, watch this passage of play leading up to Sean Maitland’s score close to the right-hand touchline:Touching the ball twice in the movement, first executing an inch-perfect box kick and then delivering a long pass off his left hand, Pyrgos is instrumental in this smash-and-grab try. That said, we can learn a great deal from breaking down the processes.For example, watch how the scrum-half organises a blocker in Pat MacArthur (blue circle) to shield his right-footed kick. With this man in place, the possibility of a charge-down from defensive guard Dominic Day is nullified and Pyrgos can make contact without being put under pressure.The next step is the weight and height of the kick. The aim is to land the ball just outside of the 22 – stopping the chance of a defensive mark – and, crucially, to make possession contestable for his chasers.

Tuvo complicaciones cardíacas después de una caída. Sus restos fueron enviados a Ginebra, Suiza, donde residen sus dos hijos. Su esposa falleció hace algún tiempo. Entre 1984 y 1902 Castro fue secretario general del Consejo Mundial de Iglesias después de haber ocupado varios cargos a nivel local y regional.  Escribió unos 14 libros sobre temas ecuménicos, teológicos y bíblicos.Marco Antonio Feliciano, político brasileño de 41 años, es diputado federal y presidente de la Comisión de Derechos Humanos y Minorías del parlamento brasileño. Es además pastor evangélico de las Asambleas de Dios, un poderoso grupo de orientación pentecostal. Ha escrito18 libros. Sus colegas lo han presionado para que renuncie a la presidencia de la Comisión de Derechos Humanos acusándolo de “homofóbico, racista y misógino” por oponerse al matrimonio de personas del mismo sexo. Dice que su formación cristiana no le permite pensar de otra manera. En la prensa se comenta que Feliciano pudiera ser candidato a la presidencia de Brasil por el Partido Demócrata Cristiano en 2014.La larga lucha por una reforma migratoria que admitiría a 11 millones de indocumentados de varios países en Estados Unidos, sigue estancada por la oposición de legisladores republicanos y algunos demócratas. El jueves pasado se celebró en Washington una magna concentración con el objeto de presionar al Congreso para que formule la legislación necesaria que “sacaría de la sombra” a millones de personas que viven sin documentos, escondiéndose de la policía sin derechos. El New York Times informó que los republicanos votarían a favor de la ley si se cumplieran cuatro condiciones pero éstas son consideradas por líderes hispanos como “injustas, abusivas y muy difíciles de cumplir”.Hace 34 años la Madre Teresa de Calcuta visitó la ciudad de Miami y dio los primeros pasos para “servir a los más pobres de los pobres”. Desde entonces ha estado funcionando un comedor que alimenta a más de 300 personas. Las Misioneras viven un pequeño convento sin aire acondicionado, sin lavadora, ni televisión. Aparentemente, las monjas nunca obtuvieron permiso para alimentar a los necesitados de la calle. Lo irritante es que la Ciudad de Miami ha puesto en un poste del alumbrado un anuncio acusando a las dedicadas monjas de “violación de los códigos municipales”.Matthew, hijo menor de 27 años de Rick Warren, autor del libro Una vida con propósito y pastor de una mega iglesia en California, se ha quitado la vida de un disparo.

La decisión, dijo el juez, está basada en pruebas científicas que no considera el fármaco como un abortivo porque no termina un embarazo ya existente, ni interviene en el desarrollo del feto. Añadió que su función es solamente “evitar el embarazo interviniendo con la fecundación del óvulo”.Dos damas que hicieron historia en el siglo pasado han fallecido. Una es Margaret Thatcher, 87, primera ministra inglesa, la “Dama de Hierro”, que jugó un papel clave en la guerra fría apoyando a Estados Unidos y la otra es Sarita Montiel, diva española que trabajó en Hollywood y popularizó canciones como “Nena” y “El último cuplé”.

Millonarios estadounidenses sancionan a Venezuela

first_imgMientras que la mayor parte de las ganancias de petróleo de Venezuela fueron sustraídas por los Rockefeller, había suficiente para enriquecer a una clase alta de venezolanos leales al imperio. Fueron los antecesores de la “oposición” de hoy, que ha utilizado tácticas cada vez más violentas para intentar derribar al gobierno bolivariano. Llamada así en honor a Simón Bolívar, que luchó para liberar a América Latina del colonialismo español.Pero mientras que Venezuela, antes de Chávez, era controlada por una clase burguesa acomodada, tenía, a pesar de su riqueza petrolera, una mayoría del pueblo terriblemente pobre, tan empobrecido y hambriento que en 1989 decenas de miles se rebelaron por los altos precios de los alimentos en lo que llegó a ser llamado el Caracazo.Fue ese levantamiento lo que hizo que Chávez, entonces oficial del Ejército venezolano, dirigiera un intento de golpe de estado contra el gobierno corrupto. Fue encarcelado pero se hizo tan popular que después de su liberación fue elegido presidente.Los imperialistas estadounidenses están usando la comida como un arma en sus esfuerzos por devolver a Venezuela al estatus neocolonial que la mayoría de su gente una vez sufrió. Mientras el presidente Trump amenaza al gobierno bolivariano con la intervención militar, sus colaboradores, la burguesía dentro de Venezuela, que anteriormente intentaron pero no lograron cerrar la industria petrolera, ahora están saboteando la distribución de alimentos.Las nuevas sanciones estadounidenses han cortado el acceso de Venezuela a fondos en un momento en que la caída de los precios mundiales del petróleo ha afectado profundamente al país, que obtiene el 95 por ciento de sus ingresos de la exportación del petróleo.El presidente Maduro califica estas sanciones de guerra económica contra Venezuela y promete que no tendrán éxito. La nueva Asamblea Constituyente tendrá sus manos llenas al frenar a aquellos que intentan someter al pueblo mediante el hambre.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this 31 de agosto de 2017Después de que unos 8 millones de venezolanas/os ejercieran su derecho a votar por una Asamblea Constituyente el 30 de julio, Estados Unidos respondió imponiendo las sanciones económicas más duras contra el país sudamericano.Sí, así es — sólo porque el pueblo venezolano votó de una manera que desagrada al imperio estadounidense, Washington ejerció su “derecho” a intentar someterlos por medio del hambre.Esto de un gobierno que consiguió su puesto con elecciones el año pasado que costaron $6.8 miles de millones, según el Centro para Política Responsiva. En otras palabras, el precio para comprar las elecciones en EUA, que dio lugar a que Trump se convirtiera en presidente –incluyendo todo el dinero gastado por candidatos, partidos políticos y grupos de intereses independientes– fue de $6.800 millones. Se aseguró de que los elegidos paguen muy bien a sus patrocinadores reduciendo impuestos a los ricos, permitiendo a las empresas contaminantes a salirse con la suya, y recortando los servicios sociales y muchos otros regalos a los súper-ricos.Fue un tipo diferente de elección la que se llevó a cabo en Venezuela. Las/os candidatos no tenían mucho dinero detrás de ellos. Las 545 personas elegidas para la Asamblea Constituyente incluyen 364 escogidos en base regional y 181 cuyos escaños se asignan para representar a diferentes grupos sociales: 79 de asociaciones de trabajadoras/es, 28 jubiladas/os, 24 miembros de consejos comunales, 24 estudiantes, 8 agricultoras/es, 8 pescadoras/es, 5 con discapacidades y 5 de negocios.Las/os miembros de la Asamblea Constituyente están encargados de redactar una nueva Constitución para el país. Los grandes empresarios estadounidenses temen que esto fortalezca aún más a las/os trabajadores, campesinos y jóvenes que han sido el pilar de la Revolución Bolivariana, iniciada bajo el presidente Hugo Chávez y continuada desde su muerte por el presidente Nicolás Maduro.Rockefeller quiere ‘su’ petróleoLas sanciones de EUA contra Venezuela están dirigidas a su industria petrolera, la principal exportación del país. Durante décadas, la riqueza petrolera de Venezuela fue una bonanza para el imperio Standard Oil de Rockefeller. Es interesante que hoy, la política exterior estadounidense está en manos de Rex Tillerson, ex jefe de ExxonMobil — el descendiente directo de Standard, que se transformó en Esso y luego en Exxon.last_img read more
