Finnplay Group subsidiary Viral Interactive has opted to cease offering its white label solutions from regulated markets, including Sweden and the UK.Martin Prantner, chief executive of the business, told iGaming Business that the deals would be phased out “in accordance with the notice periods” provided in the agreements.In a press release, Prantner said the decision had been taken as a result of tightening regulations in these territories.“We regret the decision to close our white label operations in these markets, especially after having successfully co-launched many exciting brands over the years,” Prantner explained. “However, being realistic, market conditions are not favorable for smaller operators in an ever-tightening regulatory framework resulting in diminishing profitability,” Prantner said.“In the months to come, we will review our strategic options and restructure our business accordingly.”One white label partner, Global Gaming said its white label agreement with Viral has been terminated with immediate effect. Prantner told iGaming Business that the contract between the two parties gave Viral the option to end the deal without notice. In July 2019, the operator teamed up with Viral to return to the market via the Nano Casino white label brand after Swedish gambling regulator Spelinspektionen revoked its licence in June. However, Spelinspektionen then rejected an application to relaunch its original brand, Ninja Casino, in the market in February 2020, criticising Viral for what it called a “highly inappropriate” collaboration with Global Gaming.Chief executive Tobias Fagerlund said Viral’s decision would not have a major impact on Global Gaming’s revenue.“Of course, it is sad that Viral Interactive chooses to discontinue their B2B operation on regulated markets,” Fagerlund said. “It is important for us to emphasise that it has only a minor impact on Global Gaming’s revenue and our assessment is that the decision does not affect our previously communicated goals.”Viral becomes the latest white label provider to withdraw from regulated markets over increased licensing pressure. In September 2019, EveryMatrix withdrew from the UK white label market after the GB Gambling Commission suspended its operating licence in August.EveryMatrix said in a statement at the time that its white label business is “irreparably damaged, despite its best efforts to swiftly prove the ability to operate in a safe, responsible, and compliant manner”.Following the EveryMatrix licence suspension, the Gambling Commission warned white label solutions providers that they will ultimately be held responsible for any wrongdoing by clients.“Licensees must know their customers and be able to demonstrate knowledge, oversight and proactive interactions where appropriate,” the Commission said. “Any interventions must be completed in a timely manner.” Legal & compliance Regions: Europe UK & Ireland Nordics Sweden Tags: Online Gambling Viral pulls white label offering from regulated markets Email Address

The Motley Fool UK has recommended Kainos. Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro. Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. FTSE 250 stock Kainos Group (LSE:KNOS) has been riding the tech stock wave of 2020 and as yet shows no sign of slowing down. The company is a leading IT provider with strength in cloud -ased digital services and its Workday operation.The bull run on tech stocks has been exhilarating for some retail investors, but many now worry it’s coming to an end. With this in mind, sky-high price-to-earnings ratios (P/E) could be a warning sign that the price is unsustainable at this level. It makes me nervous. But then again, I can understand why some companies are simply better positioned to ride out the Covid-19 storm.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…Strength and resilienceKainos Group has the makings of one such company. Its half-year trading update was very positive, noting strength across all aspects of the business. Accordingly, the Kainos share price has risen 146% in the past year and over 31% in the past month. However, it now has a P/E of 82 and even with public sector revenues projected to grow by 18% in FY21, I think that would still leave an adjusted forward P/E higher than desirable.Nevertheless, as Covid-19 shows no signs of slowing down, and rolling out vaccines seems like it’s going to be a slow process, Kainos remains in a position to grow. The government is keen to continue to invest in cloud-based infrastructure, and Kainos has been building relations with the Government in order to provide that. This is likely the start of a long-term relationship that could extend its market share throughout the next year or two.Recurring revenue streamsPeople are still shifting to working from home or adapting their workplace practices to be more digitally savvy. Kainos helps these customers, along with its Digital Services customers in the NHS and Public Sector. Transformation across these areas is vital and long term, bringing in recurring revenue for the group.As well as the British Government and NHS on its books, notable clients include Netflix, Booking.com and TomTom. Its Workday Practice benefits from having an international presence and has been continually winning new contracts. Workday is actually an American software vendor that provides on demand financial management and human capital management software. Kainos is Workday’s leading European partner. It implements the Workday Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) platform for both its enterprise and government customers. Again, providing a service that generates repeat custom and recurring revenue. It also supports Smart, which is an automated testing platform for its Workday customers.Money in the cloudOne area of demand in the NHS is digitising patient notes, to assist with a transition to telemedicine. Kainos has been working with the NHS for the past decade. It’s been rolling out the implementation of Evolve Electronic Medical Records and is now serving this as a cloud-managed service to over 30 NHS Trusts.The Kainos share price has been building momentum because investors love quality and in uncertain times, quality wins hands down. Kainos pledged to pay a one-off dividend of 6.7p per share in July. If I already owned shares in this FTSE 250 stock, I would not consider selling them just now. I’m tempted to invest, but would prefer to buy in a dip.

FREE REPORT: Why this £5 stock could be set to surge The FTSE 100 protective technology and equipment provider, Halma (LSE: HLMA), released its full-year numbers today. But its share price has barely moved. This, to me, is a perfect example of a stock whose results are ‘priced in’, a term we often hear in investing commentary.I think this is a good sign, because it indicates that the company’s performance is predictable. In this case, it was predictably good, which is even better. 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…A robust FTSE 100 stockHalma’s statutory pre-tax profits are up 13% and dividends per share are up 7% for the year ending 31 March 2021. Statutory numbers are those reported for government purposes. Because they use a standardised method, they are also helpful in making comparisons across companies. This marks another successful year for the company, even with a 2% decline in revenue. I am not worried about this decline though, because it is limited. Moreover, the pandemic impacted Halma’s first-half performance, though revenues were up in the second-half.As I see it, the fact that it is a pricey stock, with a price-to-earnings ratio of 57 times, could be its real downside. I still think it is a good stock to hold for the long term, however. The last time I wrote about it, its P/E was 46 times. As I said then, you pay a premium for a high-quality stock, and I still would for Halma. FTSE 250 stock with potentialIn sharp contrast to Halma, the stock markets have reacted sharply to annual results from Mitie Group (LSE: MTO), also released earlier today. The FTSE 250 provider of cleaning and facilities management services has seen a 5% jump in share price.I reckon this is because of its robust outlook for the next year. In his comment on the results, CEO Phil Bentley says that next year “will be materially ahead of our prior expectations”. As an investor, I am particularly encouraged by the trends in contracts. At 96%, the contract renewal rate is at an all-time high. New contracts are described as both “significant” and “high quality”. Moreover, these are expected to be a reason for the company’s improved performance next year. Going by this, I am hopeful about Mitie’s future. On the flipside, the latest numbers are not entirely strong. Its revenue grew by a robust 19% for the year ending 31 March 2021, but its operating profit is down by a huge 26% because of the pandemic. The pandemic is not yet over, so I am not ruling out some continued impact on its profits. My takeaway for Mitie GroupKeeping in mind both the latest results and the outlook, I think the share price can rise more. It seems to have been impacted far more than what is visible in its financials. Its share price is actually down by 13% from the year before. And it is way below its pre-pandemic levels too.It is a buy for me. But if I was being really risk averse, I would wait for another update before buying the stock.

Light, intimacy, balance and contemplation of the outdoor spaces are some of Casa RCR’s striking features – a haven located in a residential area of Anadia, in central Portugal. This exercise in balance and volume distribution designed spaces to be fully experienced, some of them more private and intimate and others in affinity with the outside, all while maintaining the intimate and refuge-like character in relationship with its surroundings. In addition to creating a particular spatial dynamic, the coordination of two overlapping and perpendicular spaces also created different visual relationships between empty and full spaces, between light and dark caused by the play of shadows, between private and semi-private areas and the view of the surrounding Serra do Caramulo in the background.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGSave this picture!Plan – Ground floorSave this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGThe functional programme is distributed over two floors: garden, barbecue area, living and dining room with a strong connection to the outside, sanitary facilities, kitchen, three bedrooms, office and garage.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGThe circulation area features a linear staircase under a skylight next to the office, which illuminates both the interior of the house on the upper floor as well as the office/library, favoured by a double-height ceiling and a visual relationship with the outside garden.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGThe spaces are developed to create constant and distinct relationships between interior and exterior, with light entering where they merge. The bedrooms on the first floor overlook the landscape featuring Serra do Caramulo, in a structure that projects to the front of the lower floor boundary. Natural light is a constant presence, as seen in the bedrooms, with slatted side openings and metal shutters that filter the light without eliminating the view of the surrounding landscape from the inside.A balanced volume frames the house’s main entrance on one side, and on the other, the structure rests on a concrete slab that covers the living room and the outdoor dining and barbecue area.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGIn standing with Casa RCR’s imposing scale, the house’s main entrance is served by a large door.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGWalls lined with lacquered aluminium slats on the ground floor and in the structure containing the office as well as large sheets of black lacquered matt glass in the upper structure of the bedrooms both create a great colour contrast, reinforce the horizontal shapes and reduce the apparent volumetric weight. At the back of the house, the living room sprawls over a single ground floor covered by an exposed concrete slab and wood beam stereotomy resulting from the pairing of pine formwork, which seeks to introduce a nod to nature in a purely contemporary material, thus creating a poetic relationship with the outdoor gardens, occasionally split by wooden slat pathways and pine bark.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGThis work fosters deeply connected relationships: between interior/exterior, between user/surrounding space and also between surrounding space/created volume – an exercise in contemporary rigour where nature and poetry take centre-stage.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGProject gallerySee allShow lessGridgrounds Square / Openfabric + DmauSelected ProjectsAnthology Festival 2021Festival Biennial Share Architects: Visioarq Arquitectos Area Area of this architecture project CopyHouses•Anadia, Portugal CopyAbout this officeVisioarq ArquitectosOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesPortugalPublished on February 04, 2021Cite: “RCR House / Visioarq Arquitectos” [Casa RCR / Visioarq Arquitectos] 04 Feb 2021.

Facebook Twitter SHARE Home Indiana Agriculture News Farm Mom Contests Regional Winners Announced By Andy Eubank – Apr 27, 2014 SHARE Monsanto and the American Agri-Women announce the regional winners in the 2014 America’s Farmers Mom of the Year Contest late last week. The five farm moms have significantly and positively impacted their communities. Now they need America’s support through online voting to determine who will be named “National Farm Mom of the Year.”“There are so many tremendous stories of strength, perseverance, dedication and leadership that it makes it difficult to narrow it down to just a few winners,” says Jessica Simmons, Corporate Marketing for Monsanto. “Every farm mom deserves to be recognized for the work she does. But with the help of the American Agri-Women, we are proud to present this year’s five regional winners.” The 2014 regional winners of the America’s Farmers Mom of the Year contest, include:Northwest Region: Jennifer Holle (Mandan, N.D.)Southwest Region: Heather Dineen (Waxahachie, Texas)Midwest Region: Stephanie Essick (Dickens, Iowa)Northeast Region: Kristen Nickerson (Worton, Md.)Southeast Region: Bethany Pugh (Engelhard, N.C.)Each regional winner will receive a $5,000 award. Their biographical information and original nomination is currently posted online at AmericasFarmers.com, where visitors can click to vote for their favorite farm mom. The woman who receives the most votes between April 25 and May 6, will be named the “National Farm Mom of the Year” — just in time for Mother’s Day. As a bonus, she will also receive an additional $5,000 prize.“Although these women come from vastly different parts of the country and specialize in varied types of farming, it’s clear they have many more common interests that bind them together — their love of family, community and agriculture,” says Kris Zilliox, of American Agri-Women. “Each one of them represent today’s women in agriculture so well, we have no doubt that we’ll have a fantastic 2014 national farm mom, no matter who America chooses.”For a list of winners, past or present winner profiles or official contest rules, visit AmericasFarmers.com.Source: Monsanto Farm Mom Contests Regional Winners Announced Previous articleUS v.
