14th October 2019 | By Daniel O’Boyle British-based operators will have to ensure they are “established in the European Economic Area” if they wish to hold a Maltese license after Brexit, the Malta Gaming Authority has reminded stakeholders.The UK is currently set to leave the European Union (EU) on 31 October, and while talks are continuing over a deal, none has currently been agreed by both parties. UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson has pledged to leave the EU on 31 October even if no deal is agreed.In a guidance document on the UK’s exit from the European Union, the Malta Gaming Authority explained how the UK’s exit may affect regulatory matters for licensees.Regulation 10 of the country’s Gaming Authorisation Regulations establishes that a licence-holder “must be a person established within the European Economic Area.” If the UK does not remain part of the area after leaving the EU, the document states that UK-based operators are therefore “required to take the necessary measures in order to ensure that the entity that holds the licence meets this pre-requisite.”The MGA said options available to a licence-holder that needs to establish itself in the EU include transferring its license to another company within the same corporate group, or re-domiciliation.A transition period of 12 months will be available for licensees to establish themselves in the European Economic Area.The UK’s withdrawal from the EU may also affect Regulation 22, which calls for EU-licensed operators and suppliers not licensed in Malta, but providing a service in or from the country, to apply for a recognition notice with the MGA.Recognition notice applications sent before the UK leaves the EU will be valid for the full 12 months, but after this period, the notices would not be valid. Operators must then take actions such as applying for a licence with the MGA or applying for a recognition notice based on an EU license from another nation.The MGA added that Brexit should not affect its recognition of random number generator or game certificates issued according to UK standards; its acceptance of UK licensed and regulated payment methods or its acceptance of “essential components located in UK territory.”Licensees may also continue to have having offices, including key function holders performing their duties, in the UK.Last week, the British government published an eight-point checklist to help those working in the gambling industry prepare for a potential no-deal Brexit.

The Internet success story that no one knew about On Tuesday 8th of June, the Internet went dark. Or at least, it did if you were reading the Guardian, Reddit, the New York Times, CNN, or the Financial Times. It also went dark if you were wanting to buy online from several major e-commerce sites — think Amazon and Shopify, for instance — or stream music from Spotify.Personally, I didn’t notice the outage. It was quickly fixed, and websites were back online within an hour. Some sites didn’t even go dark, I gather: instead, they just slowed down. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Customer retention levels are 99%, according to the company’s latest investor presentation, and revenues grew 45% last year. Average spend per enterprise-class customer is US$782,000 — up 46% from the level at first flotation. Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Image source: Getty Images. That’s right — instead of heading down, as one might imagine, Fastly’s shares spiked sharply upwards.Why? Investor appealTo me, the answer is fairly obvious. Coming to market in 2019, Fastly’s market capitalisation is now double what it was when it was floated. That’s quite some share price appreciation. It went up, by 11%. Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you.

And as I say, Fastly has hundreds of such customers, and is gaining more all the time. Check out the investor presentation for some very interesting charts.Yet plenty of investors won’t have heard of the company, until the outage occurred.When all of a sudden, it became obvious that here was a fast-growing business with an impressive blue-chip customer base.Hiding in plain viewNow, Fastly isn’t (yet) profitable. And free cash flow is negative. But losses are slowing, and cash burn is reducing.Even so, I won’t be buying Fastly’s shares — as an income investor, I prefer shares offering decent dividends.But I can see the appeal. And evidently, so can others.The real lesson here is the value of information. Fastly was hiding in plain view: the investor presentation I mentioned above, for instance, was published back in March. Malcolm Wheatley | Saturday, 19th June, 2021 | More on: FSLY The cause?

Enter Your Email Address See all posts by Malcolm Wheatley There were no secrets. Everything was in the public domain — even all (or at least most) of the impressive names on Fastly’s customer roster.And yet it obviously came as news to enough investors for the share price to spike as they bought in.Knowledge has valueThink of it as information asymmetry. There’s value in knowing something — but often, the cost of not knowing something can be greater.Put another way, the investors who bought into Fastly after the outage have paid a premium for doing so. As have all those who failed to buy in the months that followed Fastly’s flotation, when the share price was broadly flat, yet bought since.In short, the smart money — and the well-informed money — got there first.In investing, information is a competitive differentiator.
Doing it for the kids: ER 2015 ambassador Lawrence Dallaglio hopes the World Cup will inspire a new generationBy Owain JonesAMID GREAT fanfare in the cavernous Live Room at Twickenham, Debbie Jevans, CEO of ER2015, and assembled rugby dignitaries, sat at the raised top table to announce the fixtures and venues for the 2015 Rugby World Cup.Amid the usual platitudes and soundbites on a sun-soaked morning at Twickenham, it was the eye-watering numbers that stood out, showing how far the games has progressed since England last hosted the Rugby World Cup in 1991.Brett Gosper, the IRB Chief Executive announced that the competition would be viewed by a global audience of 4 billion across 207 ‘territories’ with the proceeds from the 44-day tournament represent 92 per cent of the IRB’s revenue to inject into the game. They project revenue from the tournament will reach a none-too-shabby £300mTop table: Assembled dignitaries explain ER2015’s visionThere will be 2.65 million tickets released to the public, most likely in early 2014 – which is a reduction of 300,000 on previous estimates, mainly due to Old Trafford withdrawing last month.This last fact has raised real concerns of ticket price hikes, in order for the ER2015 to meet targets set by the IRB, including an £80m staging fee.In all, there will be 48-games crammed into an exhaustive six-week schedule that will take rugby around England at 13 stadiums, nine of which are at football stadiums, or as Jevans tactfully put it, ‘multi-sport venues’.The organisers were proud to announce that 92 per cent of the population would be within 50 miles of one of the stadiums. It will still be a testament to the organizers if they can mobilise the casual fan to games and reach the 2.3m ticket sales needed to break-even, especially when the behemoth that is the Premier League is in full flow.Tournament ambassador Lawrence Dallaglio started the call-to-arms by asking for ‘the whole country to be up on its feet.’The geographic spread is all part of a wider vision to spread the game in non-traditional rugby areas, with the North East (St James’ Park), North-West (Etihad, Elland Road) selected. However, with 16 matches taking place within London, at Wembley, Twickenham or the Olympic Stadium, there have already been claims that the tournament is too ‘London-centric’. These claims were swiftly and politely rejected.Work to do: Olympic Stadium has five matchesTraditionalists will also be smarting, pointing to the fact that only two Aviva Premiership grounds, Sandy Park and Kingsholm, will host games, with those at Franklins’ Gardens and Welford Road, upset to have been overlooked.The Tigers, who this week have provided six Lions to the squad, have found it especially difficult to reconcile the fact that their atmospheric old ground has been overlooked for the newer Leicester City Stadium, which lies just half-a-mile away, and houses 6,000 more seats.Dallaglio was quick to point out that the Tigers had already used the stadium for larger Heineken Cup matches.One winner from the fixture schedule appears to be the WRU and the Welsh economy who were quick to trumpet a £100m boost to the economy after securing eight games, but crucially, not the key England and Australia games. This despite a tongue-in-cheek invitation from WRU Chief Executive Roger Lewis.Those mouth-watering tests will take place at Twickenham, as RFU Chief Executive was keen to point out, ‘it’s our World Cup’.Despite expected gripes given by fans and the media over ticketing and location, by October 31, 2015, when the final whistle blows on the tournament, ER2015 will hope they can look back on the most (commercially) successful tournament in rugby history. We wish them luck. LONDON, ENGLAND – MAY 02: A general view of The Olympic Stadium, one of the Venues for the IRB Rugby World Cup 2015 at Olympic Stadium on May 2, 2013 in London, England. The 13 Match Venues and Host Cities selected are: Twickenham Stadium (London), Wembley Stadium (London), Olympic Stadium (London), Millennium Stadium (Cardiff), Manchester City Stadium (Manchester), St James?

An enhanced grip pattern on the match ball will facilitate handling at next year’s World Cup in Japan. Ian Savage, the brains behind Gilbert’s shiny new Sirius, explains more Four years ago, the Match-XV had a softer feel and repelled water more efficiently, aiding grip, but the number of changes to a rugby ball are shrinking as we get closer to perfection.“It’s a fine-tuning process really,” concedes Savage. “I think there will always be scope to improve (a ball) just with the way technology has moved forward. But there are certain things defined by World Rugby that we can’t change, and therefore the areas in which we can, we’re always trying to push those boundaries.“Ultimately the improvements are going to be smaller as we continue to move forward, because we’ve made some pretty incredible jumps in the last 12 years.”All in order: Gilbert Match XV balls lined up at an Argentina training session in 2015 (Sportsfile/Getty)The Sirius will be used in anger for the first time in this weekend’s Japan-New Zealand match in Tokyo, and thereafter will be on view across the autumn Test programme.Gilbert officially supply 16 of the 19 teams that have qualified for Japan 2019 – one of the exceptions being New Zealand – and that will become 17 out of 20 should Canada or Germany clinch the remaining spot via the repêchage.Handling is one thing, kicking is another. Goalkicking success rates typically hover around the early to mid 70% bracket, and while past masters like Wilkinson and Carter are no longer around, Owen Farrell, Leigh Halfpenny and Greig Laidlaw are at the forefront of an equally impressive current generation.KICK SUCCESS AT THE PREVIOUS FOUR WORLD CUPS2003 – 72.5%2007 – 73.4%2011 – 63.6%2015 – 74.9%“There are some fantastic kickers around but there are some elements they’ll have to adjust to playing in Japan,” says Savage. “Most players have played in England and New Zealand and France, they’re established international venues. But Japan will be new for a lot of players. The longer the players have got exposure to the (Sirius) ball, the better the scenario.” New star: the Sirius has the largest total surface area of any international match ball produced to date Gilbert launch the 2019 Rugby World Cup ball – the SiriusAnother piece of the 2019 World Cup jigsaw has slotted in with the launch of the official match ball for the tournament – the Sirius. Named after the brightest star in the night sky, it has been two years in the making and is the seventh World Cup ball to be created by Gilbert.Almost all of the features present in the Match-XV ball used at RWC 2015 remain, with the one notable difference being the use of a sharper pimple to provide better grip, especially in wet conditions.“Due to different manufacturing techniques that we’ve developed over the last two to three years, we’ve been able to get much more definition on the pimple. That’s the technical difference,” explains Ian Savage, Gilbert’s ball engineer.“You have to balance how the aerodynamics work with the pimples. You could make a ball really grippy by making the pimples a lot higher, but you wouldn’t be able to kick the ball in the same manner; it would be too aerodynamically unstable.“It’s a balancing act, so what we’ve done with the Sirius is to change the definition of the pimples without changing the height; that’s why the aerodynamics are maintained whilst improving the grip.”THE WORLD CUP BALLS1987 Mitre Multiplex 1991 Adidas Webb Ellis 1995 Gilbert Barbarian 1999 Gilbert Revolution 2003 Gilbert Xact 2007 Gilbert Synergie 2011 Gilbert Virtuo 2015 Gilbert Match-XV 2019 Gilbert SiriusAt the 2003 World Cup in Australia, Fiji blamed the “slippery” silicon ball covering for their error-strewn display against USA, while four years later New Zealand expressed criticism after Dan Carter missed five out of nine kicks against Scotland.Jonny Wilkinson also struggled off the tee in 2007 and it emerged that match officials had over-inflated the balls, despite being given clear instructions.Fast but loose: Fiji criticised the ball after their 2003 win over USA in Brisbane (AFP/Getty)For France 2007, Gilbert addressed the issue of slipperiness by creating a dual-height pimple and switching from a round pimple to a star-shaped one. Then, in 2011, they changed the shape of the valve to enhance the rotational consistency as the ball travelled through the air.

On a prominent corner in Surry Hills, Crown 515 presents a dynamic form to the street, reinterpreting the traditional terrace in a contemporary design of angular shapes and shimmering tessellated tiles. Save this picture!Courtesy of Smart Design StudioA large ground-floor commercial space is envisioned as a restaurant, destined to be part of the local food scene, while five apartments on the upper two floors offer bespoke residences. Save this picture!Courtesy of Smart Design StudioThe character of the building is formed by two distinct but related architectural gestures that create a dialogue on either side of an existing free-standing terrace house, making use of an empty block to one side and a small triangular parcel of land on the other. Save this picture!East ElevationDerived from the pitched roof forms of the surrounding structures and with a conscious nod to the vertical portals of the adjoining terrace typology, the architectural language of the building represents a challenge to the conventional terrace row. Viewed from Crown Street, the acute angles of the southern facade exaggerate the perspective of the corner site, lifting up to reveal an active public corner. Save this picture!Courtesy of Smart Design StudioThis facade is clad in gloss white tessellated mosaic tiles that reflect and refract their surroundings, catching and amplifying the southern light. Along the row, in the new infill terrace, the same tiles line the internal reveals of the portals, offering a consistent yet distinctive character to the external finish of the building. Save this picture!Exterior DetailThe design ‘gives back’ to the street by creating an outdoor dining terrace, raised comfortably above street level but still very much a public zone. Paired with the promenade along Crown Street, this creates a social space the transitions smoothly into the Surry Hills context. Save this picture!Courtesy of Smart Design StudioThe restaurant is accessible from both Crown Street and Miles Street to the rear, allowing flexibility of use, while the tiled southern facade lifts up at the corner to reveal a secondary entry point, subtly activating this corner of the site. This portion of the building recognises the scale of its neighbours with a tall street wall, punctuated by only one strip window above ground floor. The two facades to High Holborn Street are unpunctuated by openings, with strong, graphic elevations that offer the strength of form required to balance prominent architectural neighbours Hiscoes Gym and St Peters Church. Save this picture!Courtesy of Smart Design StudioAn infill terrace to the north of the site connects the heritage building to its northern neighbours, continuing the familiar vertical rhythm of rectangular forms cut with residential balconies. Infused with the Surry Hills character, this bespoke, contemporary interpretation of a classic building type features proportions and function driven by the terrace typology. Save this picture!Courtesy of Smart Design StudioThe residential entry to the building is completely removed from the site’s commercial activity and is located at the rear of the development on High Holborn Street. Residents access each of the five apartments over two floors via a central stair and lift. Save this picture!Courtesy of Smart Design StudioThe apartments make clever use of the existing terrace, retaining its key structural walls and weaving space around them. Apartments to the west feature large north-facing balconies with the privacy of a rear lane aspect, while the more lively Crown Street-facing apartments make use of existing and new terrace balconies. Individual apartments also boast design features: apartment three has a large window revealing the tall raked ceiling of the dining room, and the upper-level eastern apartment features a very large deck, set back to avoid street presence and offer acoustic privacy. Save this picture!Ground FloorSave this picture!First FloorSave this picture!Second FloorThe building observes the fundamental principles of energy efficiency and sustainable design. Thick composite walls provide insulation from outside temperatures, while windows with recessed reveals provide natural light without excessive heat gain. Generous ceiling heights permit plenty of solar access in winter and exclude hot sun in summer. The strategic placement of operable windows reduces the reliance of interior spaces on air conditioning, and further engages the building with its site.
