Raketech boosts global network with Lead Republik acquisition March 11, 2020 Raketech Group has decreased the dependency of its affiliate publishing network on Swedish coverage, stating that the ‘volatility’ of the market due to the re-regulations has made it ‘challenging to navigate’.This story featured in today’s SBC News 90. To view the latest round-up, watch today’s edition here.Publishing its 2020 interim results (period ending 30 June), Raketech revealed that its geographical split has reduced its dependency on the Nordic region – with 81% of its operations focused on the region, down from 96.8% in Q2 2019.Q2 revenues grew by 24.1% during the period, from €5.7 million to €7.02 million. Casino was the key driver for revenue growth, accounting for 89% of total revenues, followed by sports which made up 8% and the remaining 3% made up by ‘other’.Operating profit for the quarter dropped by 22.8%, down from €1.98 million to €1.53 million. In addition, adjusted EBITDA also fell, down 2.3% from €2.89 million to €2.82 million.Oskar Mühlbach, Raketech CEO, commented: “As expected, we witnessed a significant drop within our sports related products due to COVID-19 and we experienced decreased traffic to these assets as an effect of cancelled sport events. This is something we expect, and to some extent already are able to witness, will regain traction again once sports return back to normal.“In addition, we could see that June slowed down even for our casino assets, mainly due to seasonality but also to some extent due to hesitance towards marketing investments from the operators, awaiting the new temporary Swedish regulations coming into force on July 2.”For the first half of the year trading, Raketech revenues amounted to €13.5 million, up from €12.1 million, a 12% increase on the corresponding period last year.Adjusted EBITDA for the period fell by 14.5% from €6.38 million in 2019 to €5.45 million. Meanwhile, operating profits also dropped by 39.4% to €2.89 million, down from €4.78 million.Mühlbach concluded his CEO address by outlining the group’s future outlook: “Despite us significantly increasing our revenues from outside the Nordics to close to 20 per cent, the volatility on the Swedish market due to the re regulations makes it challenging to navigate. The unpredictability mentioned in the previous report is still very much present even though our dependency on this market is lower.“And depending on the market development on our existing markets, it is worth mentioning that our US organic investments could have a slightly negative effect on our margins in the short to midterm.“Although volatility might be high, I am excited by the combination of Raketech being both debt free and operationally stronger than ever. This allows us to continue our efforts to deliver on our strategic goals within product development and diversification as well as geographical expansion, organically and through M&A.” Raketech names Karlsten as new COO May 27, 2020 Share Submit Related Articles Share StumbleUpon Oskar Mühlbach chosen as Raketech CEO December 12, 2019
“He brought it each and every night on both ends of the floor,” Woods told CBS. “Not too many guys can say that throughout NBA history.”He locked up on D [defense], obviously he was dominant on the offensive side, but anytime he was in the game he’d take on their best player and just shut him down for all 48 minutes and that was one of the more impressive things I think in his entire career.”When he ruptured his Achilles (in 2013) and went to the foul line and made his shots, that’s tough.” Bryant reportedly was one of nine people on board a helicopter that crashed at approximately 10 a.m. local time in Calabasas, Calif. Local authorities said that there were no survivors. Bryant’s 13-year-old daughter, Gianna, also died in the crash, the NBA announced.MORE: Rest of sports world reacts to Bryant’s deathBryant, who won five NBA championships with the Lakers and earned scores of personal accolades, was nicknamed “Mamba,” and golf fans were urging an oblivious Woods to produce a magical round in the basketball great’s memory.”I didn’t really understand why the people were saying, ‘Do it for Mamba’,” Woods, an ardent Lakers fan and a Bryant admirer, told CBS Sports in a postround interview. “But now I understand.

City businessman Mohamed Din has been charged for threatening behaviour; to wit, pointing his firearm at a man with whom he had had a confrontation. He appeared on Friday before Georgetown Magistrate Leron Daly and pleaded not guilty to the charge after it was read to him by the magistrate. The charge stated that on July 10, 2018, while being a licensed firearm holder, he pointed his firearm at Patrick Williams. Din told the court that he and Williams were involved in a minor motor vehicle accident, and Williams got out of his car and knocked on his vehicle window. Din contends that he placed his hand on his firearm, which was in the middle compartment of his vehicle, because he was scared. He noted that the altercation happened in the Albouystown area, which he described as where a lot of crimes occur. After listening to Din’s explanation, Magistrate Daly placed him on bail in the sum of $10,000, and adjourned the matter to July 16.
The Big 5 gets under way this week, and the big question everyone is wondering is whether anyone can stop Eureka?The defending champion Loggers are loaded with senior talent, have great pitching, offense and defense, and are a perfect 9-0 in their pre-league schedule.So it would seem fair to assume they are the heavy favorites.In sports, however, anything can happen, and about the only thing we can say with any certainty at this stage is that the rest of the Big 5 is not going to roll over …

The Blackberry just doesn’t seem to have the luster it once did. Today, it had another nationwide outage.According to Data Outage News:“A number of users are reporting and an escalated RIM tech support call has confirmed data issues affecting WiFi devices NOT connected to a WiFi network. The outage is sporadic and issues are confirmed on at least on Verizon and T-Mobile on both US east and west coasts. Again, if you are connected to WiFi, you likely won’t notice any problems until you are out of WiFi range. This is not affecting ALL WiFi users, the reports are sporadic, but across all carriers, BIS and BES included.”What’s going in with the Blackberry? Once the enterprise stalwart, it is now looking like a struggling behemoth. Its interface almost seems antiquated. An analyst group is now saying the iPhone is expected to beat out the Blackberry in 2011 for the number one spot. And now we have another outage.Twitter users are all over today’s outage.

Tiffany wrote to ask me how she might set herself apart. She asked whether training and certifications might help her distinguish herself, especially as it pertains to becoming a leader in a few years.Many of the best salespeople in the world would be judged to have been poorly trained, if you look only at their formal classroom training. All who have been trained would say they enjoyed training, learned something useful, and they will tell you what part they apply to their work today. They will also describe how they were taught in more informal ways every day.Very few of the best salespeople credit certifications as being what sets them apart from their peers, even while telling you they are happy they had a chance to go through the process and that they learned a lot they still use.Distinguishing yourself isn’t a matter of formal training, even though it is still worth your time. This recipe will serve you whether you have the formal training and certifications or not.Outwork Them: This is nowhere near as difficult as it sounds. Most people aren’t willing to work hard. They count their hours instead of their outcomes. They are “clock punchers” who try to keep busy between normal business hours, even if being busy isn’t productive. Being out-hustled is a choice, as is out-hustling everyone else.Out-Study Them: There are all kinds of statistics about how few sales books salespeople read. Some suggest that 95 percent of salespeople have never read a single book on sales in their life. Assuming that number is correct, or close enough, that means reading a single book is more than almost any of your peers. Reading, especially non-fiction, will help you develop faster than your non-reading peer group.Learn Faster: This is different than studying. Like most human endeavors, sales isn’t something you can learn to do by reading a book. You can’t learn to swim or ride a bike by reading a book, and you can’t learn to sell that way either. Books are what provide you with a framework to understand what you are doing and what you might do while you are actually selling. They multiply the speed at which you learn, but only if you take time to reflect on what you are doing, make meaningful adjustments, and apply new ideas.Get Coaching: The performers in almost any field have coaches, or they had someone that coached them as they developed. Some had different coaches at different stages of their development, even if the person wasn’t a formal, professional coach. A good coach can help you see areas for improvement that you haven’t recognized. They can also tell you directly how to do some things that will literally compress your learning curve by decades.Be Better with People: The more effective you are with more people, the better your results in sales (and in life). The more you develop empathy, the ability to take someone else’s perspective, the more you will differentiate yourself from the crowd. The more willing you are to commit to helping others, especially when it comes to dealing with difficult challenges and situations, the more you set yourself apart from others. Even though very few people are willing to talk about these issues, choosing to believe that sales is a science, this is where the action is.The intention to be the best, when followed with consistent action, will propel you to the top of your field. Ambition is a powerful force, especially when coupled with a willingness to put in the time and effort.If you want to be a leader, then you have to lead. You have to take accountability for outcomes, and then you have to lead others in helping you to achieve those outcomes. You never have to wait for someone to make you a leader. You just have to do the things that allow them to recognize it in you. Essential Reading!

Sherwin Ganga shone with a late blitzkrieg as Trinidad and Tobago defeated debutants Ruhunu Eleven by five wickets in a low-scoring inaugural Champions League Twenty20 qualifier clash here on Monday. Score Ganga (39 not out) smashed two sixes and a four as T & T collected 21 runs from the penultimate over and chased down the target of 139 with seven balls to spare after their top-order batsmen, except for Darren Bravo, failed to contribute substantially.Bravo contributed a 49-ball 44 not out and shared 53 runs in just 26 balls for the unfinished sixth wicket stand to see Trinidad opened their campaign on a winning note at the Rajiv Gandhi International cricket stadium.Trinidad struggled in their run chase initially with three key wickets falling inside the first six overs before Bravo and Ganga took over.While Bravo played cautiously, his partner Ganga had other ideas in mind as he clobbered Ruhunu bowlers all over the park. His 15-ball unbeaten 39 had four fours and two sixes.Requiring 19 off last two overs, Ganga hoisted spinner Arosh Janoda for two sixes and a four to settle the issue in his team’s favour.After the early loss of Lendl Simmons, Adrian Barath and Daren Ganga, Bravo and Denesh Ramdin (18) added 28 runs for the fourth wicket to put their side back on track. Bravo then added another crucial 25 runs for the fifth wicket with Jason Mohammad (17) to give the perfect platform for Ganga’s final flourish.For Ruhunu, Janaka Gunaratne grabbed two wickets while Sanath Jayasuriya, Janoda and Perera took one wicket each.advertisementEarlier, electing to bat, Dinesh Chandimal rescued Ruhunu from a precarious situation to help his team post a modest 138 all out with a patient 50.Ruhunu were done in by five run outs as lack of discretion on their part towards the end undid Chandimal’s good work. Chandimal revived the team after a top-order collapse which saw them tottering at 26 for three at one stage.Chandimal struck two fours and equal number of sixes in his 48-ball stay, and was ably supported by Janaka Gunaratne (20) as the duo put on 67 for the fourth wicket.But the Sri Lankan domestic side’s lack of international experience came to fore as five of their batsmen ran themselves out. From 132 for six, they slumped to 138 all out.Ruhunu captain Mahela Udawatte’s decision to bat after winning the toss on a green-top backfired as they lost three wickets, including Jayasuriya, inside the fourth over.While Jayasuriya was trapped by Badree, Udawatte ran himself out as Adrian Barath’s quick throw found him well short of the crease.Their miseries were further compounded when Milinda Siriwardana (1) took off for a non-existent single, resulting in another run-out.Chandimal and Gunaratne then played cautiously while keeping the scoreboard tickling with occasional boundaries.However, as they were settling into a nice position, Gunaratne was bowled by Kevon Cooper, and Chandimal was caught by Rampaul off his own bowling.After the fall of both the batsmen, Ruhunu’s lower-order failed to put up any resistance.For Trinidad, Rampaul was the most successful bowler picking up two wickets for 17 runs.
