Finance William Hill tables £242m offer for MRG Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Tags: Mobile Online Gambling MRG chair says ‘size matters’ as board recommends bid is accepted 31st October 2018 | By contenteditor Topics: Finance Strategy AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Email Address William Hill has tabled an offer of SEK2.82bn (£241.8m/€270.9m/$307.4m) to acquire Mr Green & Co (MRG) in a move that CEO Philip Bowcock believes will allow the company to become “a more digital and more international business”.The offer on the table is for SEK69 in cash per share in MRG, with the board of directors at MRG recommending that shareholders accept the bid. MRG said that 40.4% of shareholders have already signed irrevocable agreements backing the bid.Speaking to iGamingBusiness.com about the offer this (Wednesday) morning, MRG chairman Kent Sander said that the final decision will come down to the shareholders, but he realises the benefits of having a larger business in the modern market.“We believe that size matters in the globalisation of the iGaming industry,” he said. “But the decision is up to the shareholders; 40.04% of the shareholders have already signed irrevocable agreements.”Hills, which does not currently hold any shares in MRG, has made the offer via its William Hill Holdings-controlled affiliate.Both companies expect to publish an official document offer at the beginning of December, with the acceptance period to run from December 10 to January 11, in the hope of completing the deal shortly after.Ulrik Bengtsson, chief digital officer at William Hill, will be responsible for leading the integration of MRG within the group, due to his background in working with Nordic online gaming businesses during his time at Betsson.Bowcock (pictured) added in a statement: “This proposed acquisition accelerates the diversification of William Hill – immediately making us a more digital and more international business.“MRG will provide William Hill with an international hub in Malta with market entry expertise and strong growth momentum in a number of European countries. William Hill will move from a single brand to a suite of brands that can maximise growth opportunities moving forward in new and existing markets.”The offer comes after MRG last week posted a very healthy trading update in which it announced a 50.9% year-on-year increase in revenue to SEK445.2m for the three months to the end of September. Organic growth of 36.4% was partly driven by a 72.3% rise in customer deposits, with earnings before interest and deductions rocketing by 49.4% to SEK75.5m.In recent months, Hills has been focusing on expanding its business in the US, striking a series of deals in the wake of the Supreme Court ruling on PASPA that has opened up legal sports betting to more states as a result. However, the offer for Sweden-headquartered MRG demonstrates Hill’s desire to also grow its European business, particularly in the digital sector.In a statement outlining the offer, Hills highlights a number of “core attributes” at MRG that it believes will “enhance the William Hill business and strategy”.These include combining MRG’s existing international hub in Malta with its own operational expertise in establishing a presence in new markets, which it said will increase its online international footprint and growth potential.Hills also said MRG’s online-only business will increase its share of online and international revenue and profits, as well as reduce its exposure to the UK market.The bookmaker expects online revenues to climb from 42% of total revenue to around 47%, while the proportion of international revenues will rise from 14% to 21%.Hills also moved to allay any initial fears over job losses as a result of the pending deal, saying “prior to completion of the offer, no decision will be taken on any material changes to MRG’s employees and management or to the existing organisation and operations, including the terms of employment and locations of the business”.The bookmaker added: “Following completion of the offer, a careful review of the capabilities and needs of the new combined operations will be undertaken in order to determine the optimal management and employee structure for future success of the group.”However, analyst Regulus raised doubts over the deal, questioning whether MRG as a “largely grey market operator” would help Hills.Regulus said: “Since WH is facing the cash flow and structural impact of B2 loss combined with increased RGD, the lack of growth in underlying retail, the struggle to regain online market share in the UK in a slowing growth and tougher regulatory environment, the inability to gain traction in Italy and Spain, and the retreat from Australia, management had to do something (other than promise in the US).“However, we are not sure that material additional exposure to grey markets, with significant and visible operating pressures, at a double digit multiple of pre-impact cash flow is the right something…”

Russia has implemented none of the undertakings it gave during the 2013 review. As a result, the level of press freedom in Russia has fallen to a level not seen since the Soviet Union’s collapse in 1991.“It is time to end the downward spiral of freedoms in Russia,” said Johann Bihr, the head of RSF’s Eastern Europe and Central Asia desk. “This Universal Periodic Review must be used to press Russia to overhaul all laws that unduly restrict press freedom, stop harassing independent media and the Internet, immediately free imprisoned journalists and bloggers and end impunity for violence against journalists.”The harassment of journalists has intensified in tandem with a growing atmosphere of hate and paranoia fuelled by the war in Ukraine and by Russia’s increasing isolation. The state-controlled national TV channels project a new patriotic, neo-conservative discourse deliberately infused with conspiracy theory. Independent media that continue remarkably to do their job are confined to an ever-narrower niche. As soon as they manage to reach a significant public, they are quickly curbed, as shown when the editors were fired at Lenta.ru and RBC, and cable TV operators dropped Dozhd TV. Chechnya and Crimea, which was annexed in 2014, have become media no-go zones where, with the Kremlin’s blessing, no pluralism survives.As described in RSF’s submission, the many draconian laws adopted since 2012 have reduced the space for free speech, criminalized civil society, undermined the economic bases of independent media outlets and reined in the Internet. More and more people are being jailed for comments they post on online social networks or even just for “likes.” Regardless of the massive collateral damage, Moscow is persisting in its blocking of the encrypted messaging app Telegram.According to RSF’s tally, at least seven journalists and bloggers are currently detained in Russia in connection with their reporting, more than at any time since 1991. They include the investigative reporter Alexander Sokolov, the Kaliningrad newspaper editor Igor Rudnikov and the Chechnya-based correspondent Zhalaudi Geriyev.Those who physically attack or murder journalists almost always go unpunished. At least 34 media professionals have been killed in connection with their reporting in Russia since 2000. In most cases, the investigations drew a blank and the instigators were never identified. Recent cases include investigative reporter Nikolai Andrushchenko’s murder in April 2017 and an attack on a group of journalists and human rights defenders travelling together in Ingushetia in March 2016.Read RSF’s contributionRussia is ranked 148th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2018 World Press Freedom Index.

Organisation Reporters Without Borders voiced alarm today at a resurgence in curbs on press freedom in Morocco following four cases in the past two weeks that have shown which sensitive issues journalists may not cover without paying a price.”Moroccan journalists are free to work as long as they do not cross the lines set down by the royal palace,” the press freedom organization said. “Three subjects have been clearly identified as off-limits in three recent cases – internal affairs at the palace, the issue of Western Sahara and the various kinds of trafficking in which senior officials are sometimes implicated. Journalists who do not censor themselves are severely punished.”Reporters Without Borders said the Moroccan authorities last year gave a few encouraging signs as regards press freedom, but now they have backed away by clearly adopting a policy aimed at reining journalists in.The organization added: “We firstly call for an end to the use of the courts to silence critical journalists, secondly for the police and judicial authorities to find and punish those who physically attacked journalist Abderrahmane Bensfaia, and finally for the palace to stop displaying such extreme irritability, most often in the form of threats.”In the most recent of the four cases, a Rabat court yesterday sentenced Ali Lmrabet to a ten-year ban on working as a journalist and a fine of 50,000 dirhams (about 4,500 euros) over a defamation suit prompted by remarks he made about the Sahrawi refugees living in camps in Tindouf, in southwestern Algeria.Hamid Naimi, the editor of the weekly Kawaliss Rif (Stories of the Rif), was last month convicted on several libel counts in Nador (550 km northeast of Rabat) in cases dating back to 1998 that had been closed but were reactivated after he published an article in November about the embezzlement of public funds by a number of Nador officials. A Nador court heard around 40 of these renewed complaints within a week and sentenced him to a cumulative sentence of three years in prison and a fine of around 40,000 euros.Since creating his newspaper in 1996, Naimi has often incurred the wrath of the authorities, especially by his calls for independence for the Rif region.Abderrahmane Bensfaia, the correspondent of the Arabic-language national daily Annahar Al Maghribiya (Moroccan days) in El Jadida (200 km south of Rabat), was slapped and kicked by thugs employed by the owner of several local restaurants and bars on 22 March while researching a report on tourism, especially sex tourism. He filed a complaint the same day but, when reached by telephone, he said the investigation was stalled as the authorities had not questioned the perpetrators.The Arabic-language weekly Al Jarida Al Oukhra (The Other Newspaper) received a “warning” from Abdelhak El Mrini, the director of protocol at the ministry of the royal family, after it ran a story on 6 April about the daily activities of Princess Lalla Selma, the wife of King Mohammed VI. Mrini accused the newspaper of “meddling in the princess’s private life” and added, “any information or news about the private life of members of the royal family fall strictly within the domain of the ministry of the royal family and protocol.”Ali Anouzla, the weekly’s editor, told Reporters Without Borders he did not think they wrote anything negative about the princess. On the contrary, he said, the story portrayed a woman close to her people who perfectly combined tradition with modernity. “This letter has no legal basis,” he said. “Royal protocol is not qualified to judge the work of journalists, which is regulated by the law, not ancestral customs. This is the difference between the rule of law and a state of exception,” he added. to go further April 13, 2005 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Western Sahara, government corruption and palace life are all off-limits for the press Morocco / Western SaharaMiddle East – North Africa News Hunger strike is last resort for some imprisoned Moroccan journalists June 8, 2021 Find out more News Receive email alerts Help by sharing this information April 15, 2021 Find out more RSF joins Middle East and North Africa coalition to combat digital surveillance NSO Group hasn’t kept its promises on human rights, RSF and other NGOs say News Follow the news on Morocco / Western Sahara April 28, 2021 Find out more Morocco / Western SaharaMiddle East – North Africa News RSF_en
Record fine for Malaysian news site over readers’ comments It was if they had committed an act of lèse-majesté. Reporter Linton Besser and camera operator Louie Eroglu, who work for Australian TV broadcaster ABC, were arrested on a street in Kuching, on the island of Borneo, on 12 March shortly after approaching Prime Minister Najib Razak.When they were released the next day, their passports were briefly confiscated and they were told not to leave the country pending a decision as to whether they would be prosecuted. The police said they had crossed a “security line and aggressively tried to approach the prime minister.” The two journalists had wanted to interview Razak for the ABC investigative programme Four Corners about the “Althantuya affair,” a highly sensitive case of alleged corruption that has been the subject of repeated acts of censorship in the past. (See the arrest of blogger Raja Petra Kamarudin in 2011) The Malaysian Insider, a news website owned by the Edge Media Group, meanwhile announced today that it was closing as a result of a loss of income caused by the government’s decision to block it.“The Malaysian Insider suffered from the block and an already softening advertising market in Malaysia,” Jahabar Sadiq, Chief Executive Officer/Editor told RSF. “It’s a sad day as Malaysia needs more news portals to provide an unvarnished view of the nation.”Anyone trying to access the site since 25 February has found a notice announcing that it is being blocked for violating Section 233 of the 1998 Communications and Multimedia Act, penalizing “improper use of network services.”The Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission issued a statement the same day announcing that the decision to block the website was “based on complaints and information received from the public.” The statement added a reminder to news sites “not to distribute or publish articles that have not been verified.”“ We caution the authorities against any attempt to prosecute the two journalists,” said Benjamin Ismaïl, the head of RSF’s Asia-Pacific desk. “It is an understatement to say that censorship is growing in Malaysia. What with Sarawak Report, Asia Sentinel and Medium, and other news sites that are sometimes subject too temporary censorship, it is the entire independent and critical press that is being targeted.“This cannot continue forever. The international community must react in a concrete way and not just limit itself to statements. The United States must condition implementation of the Trans Pacific Partnership on respect for democratic freedoms, starting with freedom of the media and information.”In response to Malaysian government censorship, RSF recently created a “mirror” copy of the Sarawak Report news website, which is blocked in Malaysia because of its coverage of an alleged corruption case involving the prime minister.To deter the government from blocking access to the mirror, RSF is using the “Collateral Freedom” method pioneered by Greatfire.org as a way of unblocking access to sites censored in China. Internet users in Malaysia can now access the Sarawak Report at https://swk.global.ssl.fastly.net/.RSF plans to add to the list of sites that is it unblocking under Operation Collateral Freedom and will continue the operation for as long as the resources are available to cover the cost of the servers and the bandwidth consumed by the visitors to the mirror sites.To learn more about Operation Collateral Freedom and to see the list of sites that were unblocked to mark World Day Against Cyber-Censorship, go to: https://12mars.rsf.org/2016-en/#sitesMalaysia is ranked 147th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2015 World Press Freedom Index.

South Padre Island PD(NEW YORK) — The woman wanted in an alleged multistate crime spree has been apprehended in Texas, near the U.S.-Mexico border.Lois Riess, 56, was wanted for allegedly fatally shooting her husband in Minnesota and then killing and stealing the identity of 59-year-old Pamela Hutchinson in Florida.Two deputies with the U.S. Marshals service arrested Riess around 8:30 p.m. local time Thursday on South Padre Island, John Kinsey, a U.S. Marshals spokesman, told ABC News.Kinsey said Riess was sitting at a restaurant by herself when the deputies arrested her.The case began last month in Blooming Prairie, Minnesota. David Reiss, 54, hadn’t been seen in more than two weeks as of March 23, the Dodge County Sheriff’s Office in Minnesota said, and his business partner requested that authorities go to his home.There, officers found David Riess’ body. He had been shot multiple times, the sheriff’s office said.It was unclear how long he had been dead, and his wife, Lois Riess, was missing, the sheriff’s office said.After Lois Riess allegedly killed her husband in Minnesota, she allegedly stole his money and then drove to Fort Myers Beach, Florida, authorities said. There, Lois Riess met Hutchinson and then allegedly killed her and stole her ID, credit cards and car, said the Lee County, Florida, Sheriff’s Office.Officials had feared Lois Riess would continue targeting women who look like her.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

San Joaquin County Sheriffs Office(STOCKTON, Calif.) — (STOCKTON, Calif.) — A week after a 16-year-old girl went missing with her former high school wrestling coach, the two were found together early Thursday at a home in Stockton, California, the same town where the teen goes to school, according to the San Joaquin County Sheriff’s Office.The 16-year-old, who had been reported missing on Aug. 22, was believed to be in a “romantic relationship” with Phillip Maglaya, 26, according to the sheriff’s office.The teen and coach were found after an anonymous caller reported a possible sighting of them about 1 a.m., the sheriff’s office said.The girl, a junior at Franklin High School, was “physically unharmed” and “in good condition” and brought back to her family, authorities said.Maglaya, a former volunteer wrestling coach at Franklin High School, was taken into custody.He was booked Thursday on charges including unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor, willful cruelty to a child and child stealing, according to records. Bail was set at $2,705,000 and he is due in court on Friday.One day before the two were found, the teen’s parents opened up to ABC News in an emotional interview.“This is a father’s worst nightmare,” father Ron Arther said.“We trusted him,” mother Iris Arther added of the coach.When the teen went missing, her distraught parents found a note from her left behind.“The first page says, ‘I love you Mom and Dad, very much, nothing that you guys did was your fault,’” Iris Arther recalled, crying.Ron Arther said he went through his daughter’s phone log and saw numerous calls to coach Maglaya — so he called him.Ron Arther said he asked the coach if he’d seen his daughter, and that the coach replied, “I talked to her yesterday, she was asking about dieting and nutrition and workout programs.”“On the day that she left she sent us an email at like 4:54 a.m., saying, ‘I’m safe, please don’t worry, I love you guys I’ll keep in touch.’”“I feel so helpless,” her distraught father said.Ron Arther said he then received a text from his daughter Tuesday that read, “Don’t worry about me I’m safe I’m at a friend’s house. I’ll talk to you guys again soon I love you, Mom and Dad.”Maglaya was an unpaid volunteer who “worked at the high school for several weeks last winter,” “but did pass background checks,” the Stockton Unified School District said in a statement.“He had advised the school he would not be returning this year,” the school district said.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.
