First it said it would bid for CSC on the precondition it did not purchase the Trafford Centre (providing all sorts of reasons for why it was a bad purchase); then it offered to finance the acquisition of the mall instead of Peel (destroying its own arguments against the purchase); now it is back with an indicative offer of 425p – again providing management does not purchase the Manchester shopping centre. But CSC knows it has to at least consider Simon’s offer, which represents a 21 per cent premium over the stock’s closing price in the past six months. That would allow shareholders to exit their investment at a 13 per cent premium to the last reported Net Asset Value of 377p. Simon’s advances will provide support for the share price in the near term, but we think its flip-flopping speaks volumes about the probability of an eventual deal. This is less holy matrimony and more transatlantic teenage crush. Savvy investors will get out while the going is good.

Safer Gambling Week: A platform to reach millions

first_imgOne key initiative we are promoting this week is our Safer Gambling Training for operators. We’ve joined up with the team at Betknowmore UK to launch a digital learning programme to provide gambling industry employees with specialist online training to strengthen player protection standards and effectively safeguard consumers from gambling-related harm. The resources have been developed using a methodology known as ‘flipped learning’ derived from Neuroscience studies on how the brain learns. Football Index will also be supporting YGAM’s work with a £5,000 donation. This follows Football Index’s earlier initiative this year, which saw it launch a new Gambling Awareness Initiative with Nottingham Forest Football Club, highlighting the importance of safer gambling and helping to educate football supporters within local communities. We’re enormously grateful to both clubs and Football Index for their fantastic support. The YGAM charity was founded by people with lived experience and we now employ numerous people who use their negative experience with gambling to make a positive difference. When utilised correctly, their unique insight can inform the approach to prevent others experiencing similar harms. Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter It is more important than ever that all stakeholders connected to the sector work together to support initiatives that raise awareness of the potential risks associated with gambling. Keeping consumers safe, especially during these unprecedented times, should rightly be a priority for everyone including the industry, Government and the regulator, writes YGAM’s Daniel Bliss. Daniel Bliss is director of external affairs at the Young Gamers and Gamblers Education Trust (YGAM) and is responsible for the charity’s communications, marketing and public affairs. Daniel joined YGAM this year having previously worked for the Gambling Commission for 3 years in several roles within their communications team. He has also held roles in politics and regional press. Alongside his role, Daniel is working with iGB to produce and co-host the Gambling Review Podcast with guests including Michael Dugher, Carolyn Harris MP and Lord Foster. DCMS Daniel Bliss, YGAM It is also fantastic to see the mainstream media taking an interest in Safer Gambling Week and the purposeful work that some charities are doing to help people. The British gambling industry is full of house-hold brands that have the marketing power to get people’s attention and get people talking about an issue.  We know the vast majority of people can enjoy gambling safely however we must provide effective support to people who do experience problems. It is vital that we bring people’s attention to the expert advice and support available to them.  As our work continues to get positive recognition, we will continue to engage with organisations from all sectors to ensure work has a positive influence on the lives of young people. A collaborative approach is the most effective way to reduce gambling-related harm.  Safer gambling training for operators  We’re also working closely with the National Union for Students (NUS). The NUS represents around seven million students amounting to more than 95% of all higher and further education unions in the UK. Student life has changed dramatically this year due to Covid-19, and this could have a detrimental impact on student wellbeing and increase the risks associated with gaming and gambling at university. Regions: UK & Ireland Education programme We are working across all regions to deliver the national ‘Young People’s Gambling Harm Prevention Programme’ in partnership with GamCare and supported by members of the Betting & Gaming Council.  Our key message for Safer Gambling Week is to highlight the importance of education. Evidence-led education is essential if we are to prevent gambling-related harms and safeguard future generations. I’m extremely proud to work with a talented team at YGAM made up of mainly teachers, parents and people with lived experience. There are some fantastic support networks and resources, many established and informed by people with lived experience, to help all ages better understand the risks and the wider impact it can have someone’s mental health, lifestyle and relationships.   Football Index has this year donated its shirt sponsorship for Nottingham Forest and Queens Park Rangers football clubs to YGAM for their games this week. Queens Park Rangers will be wearing special edition shirts for their London derby against Watford this Saturday, 21 November, while Nottingham Forest will be sporting the shirts for their game against Bournemouth on Tuesday, 24 November. This is an incredible opportunity to raise the profile of the charity especially as the Nottingham Forest match will be shown live on Sky Sports to an audience of millions.

The digital training content is all relevant to the Gambling Commission’s latest LCCP requirements and has received funding from regulatory settlements to support the delivery of the National Strategy to Reduce Gambling-related Harms. The Canada-based Responsible Gambling Council (RGC) is also involved in the alliance acting as independent evaluation partners. Our new Student Hub website (www.students.ygam.org) is the first of its kind; supporting students to enjoy a university experience free from gaming and gambling-related harm. Created with input from current students, the website features interactive elements along with lived-experience case studies to further highlight the real issues of gambling and gaming harms on university campuses. We will use this online portal to gather insights and share findings with our partners at other universities and students unions. Looking ahead, I believe we are moving in the right direction and the awareness campaigns must continue to grow and reach more people. There will always be a wide spectrum of opinions on what needs to be done to reduce gambling harms and all these views should be welcomed.  A ministerial team that is well-briefed and has engaged to acquire the knowledge needed to drive meaningful policy changes can only be a positive for everyone.   The Government review will be an opportunity to raise standards and improve public trust in the sector. We need a diverse spread of perspectives to engage respectfully in the debate.  We believe there needs to be a recognised standard that colleagues within the sector can take with them throughout their career, and which includes regular mandatory updates and refresher courses. A consistent high level of customer service is needed and would really build trust with regulators and it would encompass all consumer facing staff working across every sector.  The Safer Gambling Week campaign provides small organisations like YGAM with a unique platform to reach millions of people through a variety of platforms which is just not achievable during other weeks of the year. In the build up to this year’s campaign, we’ve had media requests from countless mainstream outlets leading to further opportunities to raise awareness of the impactful work we do.  As a harm-prevention charity, we are pleased to be supporting Safer Gambling Week and we are committed to collaborating with anyone who shares our vision.  We are still a small organisation with very ambitious plans so our partnerships and collaborations help us reach thousands of young people across all regions of the country. The profile and calibre of organisations who are enthusiastic to work with us really highlights the quality of our programmes and the importance of our social purpose.  Football Index Responsible gambling The YGAM team has risen to the challenges of lockdown by accelerating the digital transformation of our education resources and using virtual classrooms to deliver interactive sessions.  Despite Covid-19, we’re now reaching more teachers, more parents, more students, more communities and therefore more young people.  NUS Safer Gambling Week: A platform to reach millions Looking ahead 20th November 2020 | By Robin Harrison I believe there are some talented people in the sector who are genuinely working hard to improve player protection and safer gambling initiatives. But I do think the customer facing teams in gambling operators can improve by understanding gambling-related harm through the powerful lens of lived-experience.  It was particularly encouraging to see DCMS Minister Nigel Huddleston publicly supporting what Safer Gambling Week is trying to achieve. We need the Government and all parliamentarians to engage properly with the topic and understand the evidence and issues to deliver what is needed in the upcoming review of the Gambling Act.  Email Addresslast_img read more

Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. Adventurous investors like you won’t want to miss out on what could be a truly astonishing opportunity…You see, over the past three years, this AIM-listed company has been quietly powering ahead… rewarding its shareholders with generous share price growth thanks to a carefully orchestrated ‘buy and build’ strategy.And with a first-class management team at the helm, a proven, well-executed business model, plus market-leading positions in high-margin, niche products… our analysts believe there’s still plenty more potential growth in the pipeline.Here’s your chance to discover exactly what has got our Motley Fool UK investment team all hot-under-the-collar about this tiny £350+ million enterprise… inside a specially prepared free investment report.But here’s the really exciting part… right now, we believe many UK investors have quite simply never heard of this company before! If I had to buy just one small-cap growth stock today, I would acquire professional services firm RPS Group (LSE: RPS). This business certainly isn’t for the faint-hearted and risk-averse though.With a market capitalisation of only £275m at the time of writing, the firm is one of the market’s smaller companies.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…Smaller companies tend to be riskier than large blue-chips because they lack the checks and balances that are in place at larger enterprises. These organisations may also find it harder to access financing in times of stress, leading to problems. However, these risks can be offset, to a certain extent, by the higher returns small-cap growth stocks can produce. And that’s why I would buy high-risk, high-reward growth stock RPS. Growth stock to buy I can see the risks of investing in this business clearly in its past share price performance. For example, at the beginning of February 2020, the stock was trading at 180p. However, by the end of March, shares in the company had fallen to 30p, a decline of 83%. Still, past performance should never be used as a guide to future potential. It looks to me as if this global professional services firm has tremendous potential as a growth stock. Revenues plunged last year as the coronavirus pandemic decimated RPS’s end markets. In the second quarter of 2020, fee revenue fell 18% year-on-year. That was the low point for the business. By the fourth quarter, the year-on-year decline had improved to just 12%. In the first quarter of 2021, fee revenue was £117.5m, just 8% lower than 2020’s figure. Based on this performance, management announced that the company expects to see revenue growth continue into the second quarter at the end of April. Profit margins are also expected to improve substantially.The company also believes it is well-placed to benefit from the growing renewable energy market. Consulting revenue from RPS’s UK & Ireland business is already benefiting from a significant pipeline of carbon Net Zero and Data Centre projects.Risks and challengesDespite the company’s opportunities and growth potential, it faces significant risks and challenges as well. The pandemic has clearly had a substantial impact on growth. This suggests another global wave of coronavirus could hurt RPS’s recovery.At the same time, consulting is an incredibly competitive market. RPS is a relatively small player in the sector, which could mean it misses out on large deals and has to spend more to compete with larger competitors. Despite these risks, I’m encouraged by the group’s recovery over the past 12 months. Therefore, I think this is a growth stock that I would be happy to buy for my portfolio. If RPS’s revenues and profits continue to improve and return to 2018/19 levels, the stock looks cheap. In 2018, the group earned nearly £30m after tax.There’s no guarantee the company will return to this level of profitability, but I think this figure illustrates its potential.  The high-calibre small-cap stock flying under the City’s radar Click here to claim your copy of this special investment report — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top Small-Cap Stock… free of charge!last_img read more
