The surge prompted the Bank to forecast growth of 0.8 per cent for the first quarter of this year.Such an expansion in GDP would be the fastest quarterly growth rate in seven years and more than double what many analysts are forecasting. The index for French industry morale, gathered for the Bank, jumped to 110, from 107 in January. In services, the indicator rose above the 100 mark to 101, from December’s score of 99.“These numbers confirm that the recovery is still on track in the second largest economy of the Eurozone,” responded ING’s Oscar Bernal.“We expect GDP growth in France to remain just below two per cent this year,” he added. Although some economists consider this too ambitious, president Nicolas Sarkozy’s conservative government has based its 2011 budget on a growth rate of two per cent.Meanwhile, the Eurozone’s largest economy, Germany, suffered a severe knock from the December snow. Industrial production fell by 1.5 per cent compared to November, largely due to a devastating 24.1 per cent crash in construction – a “weather-related” shock, according to Ben May of Capital Economics.“Despite this disappointment, the industry was the backbone of the German recovery last year, growing by almost 10 per cent,” added ING’s Carsten Brzeski.

Intralot losses widen in Q1 as B2C revenue plummets

first_img Topics: Finance Lottery Sports betting Intralot’s losses drastically widened in Q1 of 2020, as B2C operations and management contract turnover fell by almost two thirds, leading to sharp drops in turnover and gross gaming revenue.Because of the collapse of revenue in other divisions, technology and support services made up the majority of Intralot’s turnover in the three months to 31 March, at €52.3m, up 5.4%. This increase was mostly due to new contracts in the US and Canada.Management contract revenue had the steepest fall at 66.4% to €8.1m. Intralot said a major reason for this decline was the loss of the rights to operate Turkey’s sports betting monopoly iddaa, which continues to weigh on results, as well as the global impact of novel coronavirus (Covid-19).Turnover from licensed (B2C) operations was down 65.1% to €41.6m, with revenue (turnover minus payouts to players) fell 53.4% to €16.6m.The business said the decrease in operating revenue and turnover was mostly due to discontinued contracts with local operator Eurobet and a change in reporting methods for Eurofootball in Bulgaria. Bulgarian  turnover alone, across all verticals declined by €71.4m. Eurofootball’s licence was suspended by the Bulgarian Gambling Commission in March. Revenue from Malta also declined due to the suspension of sports from mid-March, while the loss of iddaa also reduced Turkish revenue.As a result, Intralot’s overall turnover came to €101.9m, down 47.1% year-on-year. Of this figure, €49.6m came from the Americas, up 2.5%. However, turnover from Europe fell 66.6% to €47.9m, while turnover from other markets fell 52.4% to €14.0m. The business processed €3.72bn of wagers during the quarter, of which €1.93bn came from North America, up 22.6%, while €834m (down 19.5%) came from Western Europe.Looking at turnover by vertical, sportsbook’s contribution plummeted 85.0% from its largest contributor to just €13.7m. Lottery turnover fell 15.4% to €66.4m. IT product and service turnover grew 2.7% to €13.2m and video lottery terminal (VLT) turnover declined 0.2% to €7.9m.Gross gaming revenue – comprising management contract and technology sales, plus B2C turnover minus winnings – was down 29.5% to €76.9m. Intralot paid costs of sales – including €25.0m in winnings paid out via its B2C operations – of €81.8m, down 47.5%, for a gross profit of €20.2m. Of this gross profit, €9.1m came from the Americas, down 4.2% year-on-year. Just €3.7m came from Europe, down 64.8%, while €9.7m came from other countries, down 56.9%. A further €2.3m was removed from profits through eliminations.The business made a further €3.7m in  other operating income, almost entirely from rents, down 25.1%. However it paid selling expenses of €6.8m, down 37.7%, and administrative expenses of €18.5m, down 7.0%. Intralot’s research and development expenses declined 41.1% while its other operating expenses fell 18.5% to €468,000.As a result, Intralot’s earnings before interest and tax (EBIT) came to a loss of €2.6m, compared with €12.3m profit in 2019. With depreciation and amortisation costs amounting to €18.4m, down 6.2%, Intralot’s earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA) came to €15.8m, down 50.3%.Intralot made €200,000 from investment income, up from €8,000 in 2019, and an additional €54,000 through asset disposal, impairment and write-offs of assets, compared to a €2.3m loss in this area the prior year. This profit was mostly due to the write-off of lease liabilities, which outweigh the cost of writing off right-of-use assets.The business paid interest expenses of €12.7m, down 3.8% and earned interest income of €691,000, down 68.2%.Intralot lost a further €460,000 through foreign exchange, compared to a €3.5m gain in 2019, and made a loss of €154,000 through businesses in which it holds a noncontrolling stake, down 77.8% from 2019’s loss. It gained a further €188,000 through changes in the fair value of monetary assets, down 18.3%.As a result, the business made a €14.8m pre-tax loss, compared to a €2.0m profit in 2019.After paying €2.0m in tax,  Intralot lost €16.8m in the quarter, up 329.6% from 2019’s loss.The business made a €15.1m loss from the European Union, up more than 800% from 2019. It made a €1.4m profit from other European countries, compared to an €800,000 loss in 2019. Intralot lost €5.9m in the Americas, compared to a €2.7m profit the year prior, and lost €30,000 elsewhere, after making an €8.8m profit in these countries in 2019. Intralot, however, recoreded a €3.1m gain through adjustments.With a €768,000 profit attributable to noncontrolling interests, total losses attributable to Intralot’s equity holders came to €17.6m, up 44.3% year-on-year.Despite the results, Intralot Group chief executive Christos K. Dimitriadis said he remains confident about the long term, which he said will be built around a new strategy focused on five pillars: digital technology, an advanced service delivery model, partnerships for B2C Licenses, growth in key jurisdictions, and optimisation of capital structure.“During the first quarter of the year, we have kept witnessing an increase in the handled wagers and an improvement of the performance of technology contracts in North America, demonstrating the dynamics of the region,” Dimitriadis said. “Group revenue and EBITDA were mainly impacted by the regulatory changes in Bulgaria, the developments in Turkey and the impact of the pandemic in non-US jurisdictions.“Going forward, we expect that our new strategy, as presented during the AGM and as already being implemented, will return the company to growth.”The business says it continues to expect EBITDA of €25m for 2020.Last month (5 May), Intralot released its financial results for the 2019 full year. Its net loss from continuing operations grew to €111.9m after what the business described as a “transition year” in which group turnover and gross revenue both fell. Later that month (29 May), the DC Lottery’s sports betting platform, developed in partnership with Intralot, launched.However, Covid-19 is expected to continue to affect operations, with Intralot saying in April that it does not expect to return to normal levels of activity until November this year. Intralot’s losses drastically widened in Q1 of 2020, as B2C operations and management contract turnover fell by almost two thirds, leading to sharp drops in turnover and gross gaming revenue.

Oklahoma tornado clean-up shows ‘miraculous’ outpouring of support

first_imgOklahoma tornado clean-up shows ‘miraculous’ outpouring of support Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC [Episcopal News Service] Barely a week into the cleanup after a string of tornadoes killed dozens and devastated parts of Oklahoma, the Rev. Paul Snyder’s role had shifted from first responder to “helping people try to get order back into their lives.”Snyder, a 35-year sheriff’s deputy, an 18-year police chaplain and a deacon for three years at St. Christopher’s Episcopal Church in suburban Oklahoma City, was the guy some diocesan clergy called initially to help locate missing parishioners.“I could pretty much tell by the address if the home was in the tornado path. Some were pretty close,” Snyder said during a May 30 interview with the Episcopal News Service. “I’d go by their homes to make sure they were still there, and knock on the door and say ‘hey, you need to call your priest’.”By Thursday (May 30), like many others in the community, his focus had shifted to “digging through stuff” as Moore City residents continued to sift through debris that had once been their homes and neighborhoods.St. Christopher’s rector, the Rev. Emily Schnabl, said that two of four parish families living near the tornado’s path had sustained damage to their homes. A day earlier (May 29), a team of church volunteers had gone to assist them and wound up helping others as well.“There’s no introductions; you just walk into somebody’s yard and just start cleaning,” said Schnabl who on Facebook called the devastation “a 17-mile open wound, naked to the sky … There is no space to take it all in.”Schnabl said the immensity of the devastation felt “unspeakable, the contents of homes open, all the rubble, stuff’s just pulverized … I’m just not able to put it into words today.”Snyder, an Oklahoma native who also responded during the 1997 bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building and the 1999 tornado outbreak that killed dozens and caused billions of dollars of damage, said that not just the sights and sounds, but smells also, brought it all back to him.“The smell of everything is different,” he said. “There’s so much dust and dirt on everything that even later when you watch it on television, the smell comes back to you. It just seems to hang around.”For first responders and others seeing the devastation it “gets pretty emotional at times,” he said. Like seeing livestock impaled by flying debris and that had to be destroyed.And the officer who discovered the bodies of a mother and infant child. “He came to talk to me about it the next day. It was still working him pretty good,” he said. “He couldn’t go to bed for awhile. He just kept working; he felt he didn’t get to the baby in time so I got to keep going, I’ve got to get to somebody.”Ultimately, “it’s all a matter of being there for people in a crisis situation,” Snyder said. “Sometimes, it’s a spiritual crisis, sometimes it’s physical, but it’s about being there when people are in need or hit bottom and trying to lift them back up.”Jera Kiespert and her family know what that’s like.The Kiesperts home in Moore was destroyed by the May 20 tornado.Their home in Moore was destroyed but within a few days’ time, St. Mary’s Episcopal Church in Edmond gave them a place to live, and much, much more, she said during a May 30 telephone interview with ENS.Kiespert, a teacher who also directs several childrens’ choirs, said the first thing she saw when she emerged from a storm shelter after the May 21 tornado, was a neighbor, trying to dig his wife out of the splintered remains of their home.“I was not prepared for that sight,” she said. “I was in shock; I saw other neighbors climbing out of rubble, people were texting me, the phone was ringing.”Within a few days, after moving between hotels and the homes of family and friends, they received an amazing invitation: use of a home owned St. Mary’s Church, where she and Jason had previously served as choir members and where their children had been baptized.“It’s a great stewardship story,” said the Rev. Mark Story, St. Mary’s rector. “We received the house as a bequest” from a parishioner who died about two years ago. “His gift was really quite amazing to the church and made it possible for Jera and Jason and their children to have a place to stay. We’re really thankful.”For Jera Kiespert, 35, it was nothing short of miraculous.“We got a call from a friend about the house” who met them the next day with the key.“It’s a beautiful home and what was even more amazing was, we walked in and the church ladies had been there,” she said. “There were beds with fresh linens, and clean towels, there were supplies in the kitchen. It felt so good to walk into a home and feel it is home,” she added, breaking into tears.“When you think about it, it is all just stuff, but it’s important too. They gave us gift cards, money for groceries, there were clothes and toys for the kids. It is so relieving as a mom to see your kids go through something like this and then be in a new place and run for the toys and to feel like we’re good, we’re going to be OK,” she said.“People have been lifting us up so much, with help, and with prayers, phone calls, we’ve felt so much love and support, it’s really amazing. It’s really hard when you’re so used to being on the giving end; when you have to be on the receiving end, it’s so humbling.”Story said equipping the four-bedroom home for living “was a blessing to the church.“Lots of people want to do something physical and cleaning up the house and getting it ready gave lots of parishioners an opportunity to do something that connected them physically with the tragedy in Moore. It was a blessing for the family, a blessing for the parish, it was just a good thing.”The church had been planning to lease the home but offered it rent-free to the Kiesperts; their insurance policy has provided for some temporary housing expense, he said.St. Mary’s school children also sent three truckloads of food and other items to collection centers, Story said. “They also made prayer squares out of fabric and sent them to children as comfort blankets.“The children prayed over them as they were making them,” Story said. “That was where they had shifted their focus after they sent the relief items down.”The Rev. Canon José McLoughlin, canon to the ordinary at the Diocese of Oklahoma, said May 30 that the clean-up and recovery efforts are still very much in initial stages and that financial contributions, prayers and other assistance is welcomed.“A large part of what we are doing is sharing information and continuing to provide resources for short-term needs, for people who need clothes, gift cards, and assistance for housing,” he said.The American Red Cross and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), have established drop-off centers for donations throughout the city as well as coordinating volunteer efforts. He continues to consult with Episcopal Relief & Development and others as the relief and recovery efforts continue to unfold.“Money is still the best thing to give at this point,” he said. “We are being contacted by people from out of state who want to come in and help, and we’re making sure we coordinate with them … but we have not even had a week yet of clean-up.”He emphasized that the need will continue for a long time, especially once the media spotlight is gone. “We want to do things smartly and not duplicate efforts and make sure people know they are not being forgotten, both in the short-term and the long-term,” he said.“We want to be part of the solution, whoever is doing the necessary work of recovery,” he added. “Once people get a better idea of what their insurance companies are going to do we will know better where gaps in services and housing are and we’ll be able to assist with those.”The outpouring of support has been overwhelming both from inside and outside of Oklahoma, he added. “There’s a tremendous spirit here,” he said. “Oklahomans are half-full kind of people … and they’ve just really stepped up to help.”Kiespert agreed. “There’s been so much support. People have offered to do the laundry, to babysit, whatever the need is. I can’t describe it, it’s so amazing, just the selflessness of people to pitch in and to try to get somebody else’s life back in order.”In the midst of the devastation, Kiespert experienced many more signs of hope. Although their home was destroyed, their bedroom was still standing, and she was able to recover a few furniture items, photo albums and a ceramic doll, made in the 1800s, that her grandmother had given her.She also couldn’t get the dog to go into the shelter with her, and she assumed he’d been killed. But her husband Jason found the dog unharmed later in the driveway.They celebrated May 29 when Jason turned 37, she said.“I told him I have to cook because that’s our tradition so I was trying to fiddle round in this new kitchen and I baked some chicken and our new neighbor brought over this wonderful chocolate cake. We ate cake and sang happy birthday to Dad and watched TV and it was normal, and it was wonderful.“I’m just taking it one day at a time and putting the pieces back together. My biggest priority was making sure my kids felt safe and had a home and, once we were able to come here, their attitude changed, their demeanor changed, they knew this is where we’re going to be and it’s OK. As a mom, that was incredibly gratifying.”–The Rev. Pat McCaughan is a correspondent for the Episcopal News Service. She is based in Los Angeles.

The solid, loadbearing wall slices give shape and form to the open structure without subdividing it. The lighting and the views through the house keep changing thanks to the open floor plan. There is no hierarchy or distinction between the different uses of the flat. They are all the same in construction and material.Save this picture!First Floor PlanThe green of the trees and the daylight are reflected in the smooth formwork of the seamless concrete walls, reaching all the way into the most introverted areas of the flats. The austere wall slices fuse the varying impressions into a single architectural entity. The rigour and stringency of the architectural treatment of space is not the goal of the design but the means that lend cohesion to the many different spatial impressions.Save this picture!© Walter MairThe concrete wall slices are placed one above the other, suspended under each other or cantilevered. They form the loadbearing structure. Shifting a wall on one floor would have repercussions on all the other floors. Their exact placement, their structurally essential organization remains hidden behind the appearance of a free, open-ended design.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanThe closed underground garage forms the base of the open and visible structure of floor slabs and wall slices, which characterizes the building above. Hidden in the earth, the foundation frames the garage, which therefore requires no loadbearing columns. The flats, with their structure of wall slices, span the garage like a bridge. The structurally bend-proof combination of wall, floor and ceiling remains visible in the flats as the building shell and gives the space a distinctly monolithic appearance.Save this picture!© Walter MairThe same wall slices that enclose the introverted zones inside the flats also generate completely glazed, extroverted living areas with no other visible supports. Hence, contradictory properties – cave and pavilion, open and closed, heavy and light – blend into an inseparable whole. They are mutually dependent as different manifestations of a single spatial concept. The architecture of the building seeks to preclude a clear cut, associative reading and the short half-life to which that inevitably leads.Save this picture!© Walter MairProject gallerySee allShow lessArchiculture Interviews: Ted LandsmarkVideosCubic Buildings by NADAAA and Himma Studio Redefine the Office SpaceUnbuilt ProjectProject locationAddress:Zurich, SwitzerlandLocation to be used only as a reference.

The house is an integration of the old and the new, a house within a house.Save this picture!© Jeremy SanSave this picture!First Storey PlanSave this picture!© Jeremy SanIntegrating the old and newThe existing house was a house from the development project in the sixties. Its walls are finished by classic red bricks and dark solid timber strips. The timber floor and stairs are also very well preserved. It was evident that the previous owner loved and cared for this house; it would be a shame to demolish such a charming building. However, its existing size could not meet the space requirements of the client. Thus the strategy of enveloping the existing house with a larger concrete shell was formulated.Save this picture!© Jeremy SanMaterialityThe new enveloping structure is made from board marked off-form reinforced concrete, grafted partially over the preserved brick walls. The board marked texture echoes the existing timber façade. The rustic combination produced an architectonic richness. The concrete structure layers over original parts of the house to create new tactile spaces in the form of a sheltered patio, balconies, and a semi-outdoor shower. Spaces flow from one into another, revealing glimpses of the old and the new, of contrasting materiality. A walk through the house is an endless journey of delightful surprises.Save this picture!© Jeremy SanProject gallerySee allShow lessRobin Hood Gardens, Once Again, Looks Set to be DemolishedArchitecture NewsUrban Renovation Lormont / LAN ArchitectureSelected Projects Share 19 Sunset Place / ipli architects 2011 Year:  Photographs 19 Sunset Place / ipli architectsSave this projectSave19 Sunset Place / ipli architects CopyHouses, Renovation•Singaporecenter_img ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/771365/19-sunset-place-ipli-architects Clipboard “COPY” CopyAbout this officeipli architectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcreteBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentRenovationSingaporePublished on August 10, 2015Cite: “19 Sunset Place / ipli architects” 10 Aug 2015.

Casa de la Brisa is a holiday house situated in a typical village of the Costa Brava, Spain. The strong, expressive volume is anchored on a plot with steep slopes that offer views onto the bay and the open sea. Save this picture!© Joan GuillamatThe client wanted a flexible house that offers him privacy but equally celebrates the unique views of the plot.Save this picture!SectionTherefore the house is simultaneously introverted and extroverted, granting privacy and accentuating the stunning views. From the hill and side of access it presents itself closed like a defence tower, a fortress. On the other side, where it faces the sea, it is completely open and transparent. Continuous spaces predominate, with no visual barriers between the interior and the exterior.Save this picture!© Joan GuillamatThe building is composed of two floors sitting on a pedestal: Its first floor, where the bedrooms are situated, can be understood as suspended binoculars. Reinforced concrete walls and beams create a 14mx13m space with a 5m cantilever. This generous structure permits a completely open floor plan on all floors. The cantilever has a double function: For the first floor it forms private patios with a hanging garden for each bedroom, providing shade and diffused light. For the main floor, it acts as a double height pergola. The main floor appears as a surface sheltered by the hovering volume of the first floor, vertically connected by the cantilever. It is composed of differently materialized volumes that contain the kitchen, bathroom and other serving programme, hereby generating a continuous open space and enabling the continuity between the interior and exterior. The pedestal contains the 120m2 open garage and a covered recessed living room / loggia for the pool. A tunnel gives access to the garage where a window connects the three spaces garage, loggia and pool. The pool is a carpet reflecting the sky, as it overflows on all four sides.Save this picture!© Joan GuillamatCasa de la Brisa is a highly flexible building with all the contemporary gadgets such as solar panels, photovoltaic, 5G internet, KNX for all its features, high performance insulation, motorized windows, electrical emergency generator, osmosis water preparation, interior elevator, fully automatic irrigation system with 18 zones, electrolysis and UV filter system for the pool and the latest technology in house security. Save this picture!© Joan GuillamatThe building’s smartness is counterbalanced by its raw materiality: Exposed concrete, stone, and plaster. The furniture and doors are tailor-made out of oak and Corten Steel. There was no paint used in this house. The interior embodies the signature of the crafts that shaped it: The blacksmith, carpenter, stonemason and plasterer.Hereby the building will acquire a natural and authentic patina over time. Save this picture!© Joan GuillamatProject gallerySee allShow lessAD Classics: Arts United Center / Louis KahnArchitecture ClassicsSprzeczna 4 / BBGK ArchitekciSelected Projects Share Architects: buchmeiervilā Area Area of this architecture project “COPY” De la Brisa House / buchmeiervilā ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/892520/de-la-brisa-house-buchmeiervila Clipboardlast_img read more
