Nektan’s full-year financials boosted by increasingly “sophisticated” Asian market Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Finance Topics: Finance Nektan CEO hails Asia progress after record results AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Tags: Online Gambling Email Address Regions: Asia Nektan is benefiting from Asia’s transition from a single-solution to “sophisticated” multi-vendor market for operators, according to the B2B and white label gaming software provider’s interim chief executive, Gary Shaw.In a trading update this (Wednesday) morning, Nektan confirmed that it had posted a sharp 48.1% increase in net gaming revenue for the 12 months through to June 30 to £19.4m (€22m/$25.7m) after an 18.5% rise in first-time depositors in the final quarter, with “rapidly accelerating demand… especially in Asia”.Shaw told iGamingBusiness.com that Nektan is building on the momentum of its record results by launching its bonus and CRM tools in Asia “in the next couple of weeks” and revealed that the company is targeting 16 site launches this quarter in its home market of the UK and internationally through existing and new partners.However, Nektan’s positive outlook for Asia contrasts with that of Playtech, which issued a profit warning on Monday after revealing that its full-year revenue from the continent is on course to be about €70m lower than expected due to an “increasingly competitive backdrop” and “a particularly aggressive pricing environment from new entrants” towards the end of the first half of the year.According to Shaw, operators in Asia are becoming less reliant on turnkey solutions, with other “sub-set” options now on the table.“There are new entrants in Asia and we are one of them, and our focus is on operators across Southeast Asia, where there are 650 million people,” Shaw (pictured) said.“As we are new to the market and the market is so large, it’s a fantastic opportunity for us. If you’ve already scaled your operation in Asia, it’s going to get harder.“Rather than just using turnkey solutions, as was the case for several years, operators are now interested in new entrants that are coming in with better sub-set products, so people with niche game content layers and data analytics tools are benefiting.“There are still turnkey solutions, but now there are also additional products and that’s why you’re seeing some margins drop away.“The market is shifting from a single-solution approach to a multi-vendor approach with most operators, who want to go with the best-in-class option. It’s just a sign of the market becoming more sophisticated.”Nektan’s bonus and CRM tools will be switched on in Asia imminently via “a couple of operators”, Shaw added. “We been testing with them for about a month,” he said. “That’s going to be very exciting for us in Asia.”In March, Nektan started offering its B2B gaming platform, Evolve Lite, in Asia for the first time through a partnership with Tyche Digital Malta Limited. Nektan said in its trading update that it is in talks with a number of industry partners to integrate the solution on a platform-to-platform basis in the next two quarters.Closer to home, Nektan is seeking expansion in Eastern Europe, as well as Scandinavia and, in particular, Germany.In May, Nektan announced that it had linked up with Metric Gaming to provide a racing and sportsbook offering in the US.Nektan is also in discussions with five studios with the aim of making its proprietary remote gaming server available to them. The studios are spread across Australia, Japan, India and the US.“We will make co-operation announcements in the next quarter,” Shaw said. “They will use our RGS solution in Europe and Asia in the first instance as those markets have scaled.” 4th July 2018 | By contenteditor

Image: N Brown “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Christopher Ruane | Monday, 17th May, 2021 A side hustle is a way of earning extra income. It’s not a full-time job, but it’s how some people generate additional income.But as “hustle” implies, earning that income still takes effort. That’s why I prefer to buy dividend paying shares instead. That way I can try to set up regular passive income streams, without having to work for it.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…Here are three side hustle ideas I would adapt to use as investment ideas for my passive income list.Online retailA popular side hustle is online retail. From crocheting baby clothes to clearing out the loft on Ebay, lockdown has provided an opportunity for a new generation of digital sellers.Rather than getting dusty sifting through boxes of old possessions, I’d rather just buy shares in a retailer that already has an online success model.Retailer Next, for example, has long succeeded on the high street. Its online sales have more than doubled over the past decade, to £2.4bn. They now represent 65% of the company’s revenue.But with a dividend below 1%, Next’s online sales success wouldn’t translate into a strong passive income stream for me. Instead I’d look to a share like Tesco. The company’s online sales surged last year. The shares currently yield 4.3%. So if I invested £1,000 now I’d hope for a passive income stream of £43 each year.Dividends are never guaranteed, however. One risk to Tesco is that lower profitability of online sales compared to instore ones could hit future earnings.Educational side hustleA longstanding side hustle for many people is tutoring. The pandemic has accelerated the shift to online educational delivery.A beneficiary of such a move is Pearson. The company has refocussed in recent years on education. It has reoriented its delivery methods to increase the role of digital platforms. In the first quarter, sales at its global online learning division grew 25%.With a dividend yield of 2.2%, I would consider investing in the company instead of getting into online education myself.But the company did dramatically trim its dividend in 2017. One risk I see is further dividend cuts if profit margins aren’t sustained. Online education is highly competitive and barriers to entry are very low.Party onAnother popular side hustle is throwing parties. As lockdowns ease, I expect that to come back with vigour.But instead of managing the logistical hassles of planning a party myself, I’d rather invest in a company that profits from them. Take Diageo as an example. With its portfolio of drinks brands ranging from Guinness to Johnnie Walker, the company does well from a lot of parties. Diageo’s yield is currently 2.1%. The company has grown its dividend annually for over three decades.That is partly because of its cash generative business. The company revenue is in growth mode, with it reporting this month that performance in its largest region of North America has been “particularly strong”.Many younger, health conscious consumers are partying without alcohol, however. One of the risks I see investing in Diageo is the possible negative impact on sales and profits that shifting alcohol consumption trends might cause. 3 side hustle ideas I’d consider – without the hustle! christopherruane has no position in any of the shares mentioned.

The site is in the outskirts of Paphos, with panoramic views – mountains to the north, town of Paphos and sea to the south–The above parameters played an important role in the design of the house. Three dimensional elements – simple cubic volumes are creating playful puzzle of the “framed views”. Interconnection between internal and external spaces brings different pictures of surrounded environment to all the rooms of the house. The juxtaposition of solid mass to large expanses of transparency is transitioned with wooden cladding, which softens strict cubic composition.

Open plan living room areas are arranged to allow seamless connection to the garden, covered terrace and pool. Panoramic town and sea views area mostly emphasized from the living room. The path through vertical connector – staircase (connecting basement – ground floor – first floor) creates the highest emotional experience – views open to all different sides.

A bright and open living room spreads out when going up to the second floor through the dark and long corridor on the first floor. By putting crazy paving on the wall that connects the living room to the terrace, and by fully opening the wooden sliding windows between the terrace and living room to create an integrated space for the indoor and outdoor areas, the blue sky and sea that penetrates forever can be seen. You can feel deeply.Save this picture!© Norio NumaguchiSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Norio NumaguchiThe study room on the 1st floor is open on sunny days with a large sliding door that makes it easy for multi-hobby client to do whatever they want. The space is as simple as possible due to the complicated structure that is bent in many ways. By making the first and second floors the same volume, it has a neat appearance.
