Caesars chief executive Tom Reeg said the operator will begin the process of selling William Hill’s non-US assets in the next two months, with the aim of finding a buyer in 2021 closing the deal within a year. “I can tell you that there are almost certainly people out there that will do it better than us and see opportunity there. In addition, Reeg said Caesars did not seriously consider holding onto the entire William Hill business. 5th May 2021 | By Daniel O’Boyle AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Tags: William Hill Caesars Entertainment Tom Reeg However, Caesars made it clear that the target of the acquisition was William Hill’s US betting business and technology, with the remainder of the operator’s assets, including its UK arm, now set to be sold. Reeg said Caesars will launch the sale process before the end of Q2 on 30 June. It then hopes to announce a buyer towards the end of Q3 or the start of Q4, and plans to close the deal by this point (5 May) in 2022. Email Address Topics: Sports betting Strategy Online sports betting Retail sports betting M&A “One of my pet peeves when I was an investor was companies that didn’t know what they were good at,” he said. “And I can’t tell you we’re good at running a non-U.S. digital business. M&A Reeg added that Caesars will be “aggressive” with investment in the newly acquired operator, noting that one reason for the deal was that William Hill’s British investors were more likely to be conservative regarding leverage. While Reeg did not mention an anticipated sale price for William Hill’s non-US business, chief financial officer Bret Yunker said Caesars planned to pay down $2bn of debt in the next 12 months, with the sale contributing to this. He said the $2bn target assumed a conservative sale price for the William Hill assets. Caesars agreed to acquire William Hill in September 2020 and closed the deal last month (22 April), after three weeks’ delay due to a legal challenge, for £2.9bn (€3.35bn/$4.04bn). While the Caesars chief executive noted that the operator is typically “disciplined” in spending, he said it was also “also sober enough to realize we have to invest considerably more than has been invested historically”, and that now the deal has closed, Caesars can fully focus on marketing the product. Caesars plans to complete sale of William Hill non-US assets within a year Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Regions: Europe UK & Ireland US “And I can deploy that capital into businesses that I know will drive better returns to shareholders. So, no, we’ve not had a moment’s pause in terms of selling the non-U.S. business.” Caesars will also rebrand the William Hill business as part of the Caesars brand.

I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. UK train ticket seller Trainline (LSE: TRN) shares have had a rollercoaster year. The company limped into the sidings, with the share price dropping from over 500p to under 200p in just a few months. Then, boosted by hopes that a vaccine could get commuters back on the rails, shares have rallied to over 450p.Despite the recent surge in share price, I don’t share many investors’ apparent confidence in Trainline. Here is why I do not plan to buy the company’s shares any time soon.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…The CEO sold some of her Trainline shares below today’s priceThe company’s chief executive announced last month that she would be stepping down. A new chief executive would be in place early next year. The outgoing chief executive also sold 800,000 shares in the company in August, at 400p. I find it interesting that she apparently thought 400p was a good price for those shares. Given that their current value is higher than that, I wonder whether the share price has got ahead of itself. I also don’t think that the management transition is necessarily a good sign. Changing bosses in the middle of what is a very difficult time for the company does not inspire confidence in the outlook for Trainline shares.Trainline has had a difficult 2020 partly because of its business model. Whereas train companies have received substantial subsidies from the government to sustain services, Trainline is simply a ticket seller. If it doesn’t sell tickets, it doesn’t make much money. Unlike train operating companies, it has not received taxpayer funded bailouts to cover reduced passenger demand.In its most recently reported six-month period, revenue fell more than three-quarters. Net ticket sales were even worse, at just 19% of what they had been in the equivalent prior period. Meanwhile, with the revenue decline causing a financial crunch, net debt had increased markedly from £59m to £166m. The company is hurting badly from the pandemic, so I don’t see why their share price has rebounded so stronglyI don’t see an easy recovery for Trainline’s businessThe sharp upward movement in Trainline shares seems to be based on the idea that as a vaccine is rolled out, train passenger numbers will return to normal. I am not so sure about that.First, we don’t know how long it will be before an effective vaccine is widely deployed. In the coming months, at least, I don’t expect Trainline’s revenues to return anywhere near normal levels. More worryingly, I wonder whether many train passengers will return at all. The pandemic has switched many businesses over to full-time remote working. Employers are happy to cut office rent bills and workers are happy not to spend thousands of pounds a year on uncomfortable commutes. I suspect that a lot of previous commuters won’t go back to their previous level of train usage, ever.On the leisure side, I also have doubts. Many people have been frightened by the pandemic and feel vulnerable being in a confined space with other people. I think some leisure travellers will also no longer book train trips through Trainline with the frequency they once did.Trainline’s revenue prospects look significantly damaged to me. Yet the share price continues to rise. I think the rally is overdone. I won’t be buying Trainline shares at current prices.

FREE REPORT: Why this £5 stock could be set to surge See all posts by Rupert Hargreaves The Centrica (LSE: CNA) share price has been a challenging FTSE 100 investment to own over the past few years. The British Gas owner has struggled to retain customers in the viciously competitive UK utility market. It’s also lost money from overseas ventures and its energy generation business.These headwinds have hurt the company’s profitability and weighed on its share price. Over the past decade, the group has lost 80% of its market value and 3m customers. 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…However, over the past 12 months, under the guidance of a new management team, the company has embarked on a transition programme. It has sold off non-core assets and used the funds received to reduce debt. Management is also planning to increase its role in the transition to green energy and boost investment in its connected homes business.Unfortunately, I think it’s unlikely these efforts will lead to an immediate turnaround. Nevertheless, it’s clear to me the company has changed direction, which could be a big positive for the Centrica share price. FTSE 100 investment In a recent interview, the energy giant’s boss admitted the business wasn’t particularly well organised. He outlined excess layers of bureaucracy in a complex corporate structure as the key factors holding back its return to growth.In the past, Centrica’s spending on consultants has averaged £1m a week. It also has 80 different contracts with its employees. These are just two of the complications the new boss wants to eradicate of over the next few years. If the strategy works, I think the Centrica share price could be undervalued at current levels. As well as streamlining its business model, the company wants to invest in its connected home business. This allows consumers and businesses to streamline their energy use. I think this kind of technology will become increasingly in demand as the world transitions towards a lower carbon future. Centrica is also investing in green energy technology. It’s looking into turning the UK’s largest natural gas storage unit into a carbon capture facility. Once again, I think these initiatives will help the company succeed in the green energy future. Centrica share price risksCentrica has plenty of opportunities ahead of it, but I think there are also lots of risks to consider as well. Management’s efforts to change employment contracts has lead to worker disputes.What’s more, while the business is trying to develop its green ambitions, it still owns a share of an oil and gas joint venture. This has been up for sale for some time with no buyers emerging. The organisation could face high costs as it tries to exit this business. Other headwinds such as the government’s energy price cap and regulatory demands may also hurt profitability. As such, while I am optimistic about the outlook for the Centrica share price, I’m not a buyer of the stock today. I think the company needs to prove it’s well on the way to recovery before I buy. That could take some time. The Centrica share price: FTSE 100 bargain or value trap? Get the full details on this £5 stock now – while your report is free.

Each sits effortlessly on the land, totally in keeping with existing elevations.

The sculpted volumes snake over the site and interlock to create a sizable green space, the real planted centerpiece of the plot.Save this picture!© Luc BoeglyThe end walls with their staggered terraces create tiers, echoing the mountainous topography nearby. To the north, along the Chemin du Roy d’Espagne, the building’s line has been interrupted, creating thereby an “inlet”, reminiscent of the calanques and revealing a landscaped garden of Mediterranean garrigue. Access to the hallways of the two buildings is set in the center of the plot, slightly below the private road, allowing residents daily enjoyment of the greenery.Save this picture!© Luc BoeglyAlso in line with the hills, the north-facing terraces which guarantee superb luminosity all year round are adorned with plant pots containing trees, and gain gradually in depth from the ground up to the roof.

Ticketpass is currently focusing on the UK market, with plans to expand to Europe and then globally in 2020. Its future plans also include launching a ticket marketplace to help combat ticket touting. 275 total views, 2 views today Melanie May | 22 July 2019 | News A ticketing platform has launched that has pledged to give 50% of its revenue to charities.Ticketpass, a London-based Tech for Good social enterprise, launched its ethical ticketing and event creation platform with the aim of allowing people to make a social impact when creating and booking events. Under its “Give Back 50” promise, Ticketpass pledges to donate 50% of its booking fee revenues to charities across the world. It is free for event organisers to use.Ticketpass has partnered with GlobalGiving to offer event organisers and ticket buyers a choice to donate to over 4,000 vetted community projects, in over 170 countries and keep up to date with the impact of their donations through the project reports uploaded to the platform. Event organisers using Ticketpass will be able to decide which charity they want their event to support.

Organising and ticketing free events incur no costs to organisers or attendees, with Ticketpass charging attendees a 10% booking fee, capped at £5, for paid tickets.Rodrigo Bautista, Founder and CEO of Ticketpass, said:“There are more than 1.3 million events per year in the UK alone, but current ticketing options are limited – the fees attendees and event organisers have to pay are often unfair, and sometimes even a rip off.

Facebook Pinterest Pinterest Local NewsCrime Twitter By admin – April 10, 2018 WhatsApp Sheriff’s Office receives new ballistic vests WhatsApp Twitter Bryan Mackay talks about Young Professionals of Odessa. The Ector County Sheriff’s Office received 60 ballistic vests through a grant from the Attorney General’s Office Tuesday designed to protect against rifle fire.Ector County Sheriff Mike Griffis said these vests, apart from the deputies’ normal vests, will protect against rifle fire, as opposed to just fired rounds from pistols.“Rifle rounds have a lot more velocity and travel many more feet per second than pistol rounds,” Griffis said. “Therefore, these vests have thicker plates and they’re much heavier.”Griffis added that every deputy received a vest, but they would still be using their normal vests for the most part. These new vests would mainly be used in extreme situations where it is believed an individual may be carrying a rifle.“These things are probably going to weigh three times more than normal,” Griffis said.Each of the vests weighs in excess of 20 pounds, an ECSO news release stated, and has a life expectancy of around five years.These vests will be distributed to patrol officers, as well as the special investigative and civil and warrant units and mental health officers, the release detailed.The 60 vests have a value of about $24,500, about $410 per vest, the release detailed.

Twitter Airlines push White House to reject testing for US flights Twitter Pinterest Local NewsBusinessStateUS News By Digital AIM Web Support – February 12, 2021 Facebook Facebook TAGS Previous articleSOL Global Investments Corp. Finalizes Divestitures of Securities in Bluma Wellness Inc.Next articleLG Energy Solution Responds to GA Governor’s Comments on USITC Trade Secret Decision Digital AIM Web Support WASHINGTON (AP) — Leaders of several major U.S. airlines met online Friday with White House officials to press their case against requiring coronavirus tests for passengers on domestic flights, saying it would undermine the already fragile industry. White House press secretary Jen Psaki downplayed speculation that the Biden administration could soon impose a requirement that passengers on domestic flights first pass a COVID-19 test. But she stopped short of taking the idea off the table. “Reports that there is an intention to put in place new requirements such as testing are not accurate,” Psaki said. She described the meeting with CEOs as “brief.” A person familiar with the discussions said the airline CEOs talked with White House coronavirus-response coordinator Jeff Zients, according to the person, who spoke anonymously to discuss a private meeting. The CEOs of American, United, Southwest, Alaska and JetBlue all took part in the meeting, according to industry officials. The meeting was arranged after Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg and Rochelle Walensky, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said that a testing requirement before domestic flights was under consideration. “We had a very positive, constructive conversation focused on our shared commitment to science-based policies as we work together to end the pandemic, restore air travel and lead our nation toward recovery,” Nick Calio, head of the trade group Airlines for America, said in a statement. Since late January, the CDC has required that international travelers show a negative COVID-19 test or recovery from the virus before they board a flight to the U.S. The airline industry generally supports that rule, believing that testing could eventually replace tougher international travel restrictions, such as quarantines. Airlines reacted with alarm, however, when CDC officials raised the possibility of testing the much larger number of passengers on domestic flights. Airlines officials say that would further devastate air travel, which has still not returned even to half its pre-pandemic level. They worry that the additional cost of a test would discourage people from taking shorter trips. The airlines also argue that there isn’t enough testing capacity to test every passenger. More than 1 million people went through checkpoints at U.S. airports on Thursday, according to figures from the Transportation Security Administration. They also say that requiring people to take a coronavirus test before flights would cause more people to drive — merely shifting the risk of spreading the virus from planes to cars. Airline unions have joined the push against testing domestic passengers. On Friday, the Southwest Airlines pilots’ union said a testing mandate “would decimate domestic air travel demand, put aviation jobs at risk, and create serious unintended consequences.” ——— Koenig reported from Dallas.
