Peter Jackson: PPB’s FanDuel to maintain DFS focus in US expansion

first_img Related Articles StumbleUpon Share Share Paddy Power raises awareness of Missing People with Motherwell ‘silhouette’ stand August 7, 2020 Submit Flutter moves to refine merger benefits against 2020 trading realities August 27, 2020 US expansion was a key theme of Paddy Power Betfair’s (PPB) corporate update on Wednesday, with the FTSE100 firm outlining its mandate to maximise the FanDuel merger and develop as a household proposition for the US sports scene.Facing increased US competition, PPB detailed that it won’t disregard the fantasy sports element of FanDuel’s offering, as the vertical enhances the merger to ensure customer acquisition targets are met during the operator’s period of expansion.The DFS focus comes in spite of Paddy Power’s previous fantasy investment, PlayDraft experiencing a period of continued turbulence with PPB governance revealing that PlayDraft has suffered £3m in losses. Nonetheless, with FOBT regulations and the Italian advertising ban limiting options within the European betting sector, PPB will be hoping that DFS will be the gatekeeper to a profitable US market it so desperately seeks.   Updating investors, PPB Group Chief Executive Peter Jackson reaffirmed the importance of maintaining a key focus on FanDuel’s core offering.“A huge part of the DFS market is the NFL season, which is not many weeks long and last year I think they had four weeks before the season started where they found out that the planned merger with Draftkings had been called off. So actually, the plans and preparations that FanDuel had done, were pretty poor because they hadn’t expected to be operating as a standalone business at that stage.”Jackson further emphasises that DFS and building on the FanDuel product can aide PPB’s growth into States that are yet to legalise sports betting: “In terms of what’s going to happen going forward with fantasy and how important it will be, there are going to be a lot of States that sports betting isn’t allowed, and we will continue to be able to offer our TVG services and fantasy services in those markets.”He added: “I think where sports betting will be legalised and it will be fascinating to see what happens in New Jersey, I do think we are going to see a different market construct in the US to the ones that we see in Europe or around the world, there is going to be a bigger balance between free to play games, fantasy and sports betting. Things will work different to how they do in other parts of the world, the fantasy stuff will continue to be important even in States where sports betting is legalised, and of course, it will allow us to acquire customers in those States in advance of it becoming legalise.”Further affirming the idea that PPB has ambitions of utilising the already strong FanDuel footprint within US States, the operator also detailed that marketing expenditure in the US will be “significantly lower” than the £50-£60m that had been touted by many analysts. A move that further strengthens the firm’s faith in the FanDuel brand, especially given that its heightened marketing approach during the World Cup saw it report £45m revenue throughout the tournament, as well making the Paddy Power brand amongst the most popular brand in UK conversation for the duration of the tournament. ‘Deal maker’ Rafi Ashkenazi ends Flutter tenure  August 27, 2020last_img read more

Court clears way for commercial Indigenous fishery in BC

first_imgKathleen MartensAPTN NewsAnother legal victory has affirmed fishing rights for Indigenous peoples off Canada’s west coast.The decision delivered by the B.C. Supreme Court Thursday found Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) wrongly obstructed the fishing rights of five First Nations collectively known as the Nuu-chah-nulth (NCN).DFO Regional Director-General Rebecca Reid welcomed the 400-page ruling explaining it outlined needed details to negotiate fishing policy in Indigenous territories.“We think it’s extremely important,” she said in a telephone interview Friday. “It’s largely positive…because it provides some clarification.”The other side declared it a clear victory.“This is a win for all First Nations in B.C.,” said Hugh Braker, vice-president of the First Nations Fisheries Council of British Columbia.Braker said the ruling would help the Ahousaht, Ehattesaht/Chinekintaht, Hesquiaht, Tla-o-qui-aht and Mowachaht/Muchalat First Nations establish a commercial fishery.He said DFO spent $19.1 million on the court battle – even after the Supreme Court ruled First Nations had the right to catch and sell fish in their own territories.But Reid described it more as instructions Canada needed to write policy.It “provides some very helpful clarification on areas that we simply couldn’t come to an agreement on,” she said, noting it even specified the fishing area and types of boats.Reid said fishing policy “was complex” but Canada was committed to doing it “in reconciliation” with affected nations.She said the two parties would likely go back to court to hammer out a timeframe for implementing new policy. She said a decision on an appeal had not yet been made.However, NCN president Judith Sayers said the government should let the bands begin fishing immediately.“NCN must have (a) moderate living,” she said on Twitter.The ruling by Justice Mary Humphries applies to a variety of salmon, groundfish, crab, prawn and shellfish.Indigenous groups say they spent about $14 million defending their rights in the case that began in 2006.last_img read more

You will be in trouble if anything is done to Aravalli, SC warns Haryana government

first_imgNew Delhi: The Supreme Court warned the Haryana government Friday that it will be in “trouble” if it has done “anything” with Aravalli hills or forest area by passing amendments to an Act to allow construction there.A bench of Justices Arun Mishra and Deepak Gupta observed this after Solicitor General Tushar Mehta, who was appearing for Haryana, said he will satisfy the court that amendments in the Punjab Land Preservation Act (PLPA), 1900 were not done to “help somebody”. “We are concerned with Aravalli. If you are doing anything with Aravalli or Kant Enclave (where the top court had ordered demolition of buildings due to illegal constructions in forest area) you will be in trouble. If you are doing anything with the forest, you will be in trouble. We are telling you,” the bench told Mehta. On March 1, the bench had come down heavily on the Haryana government for passing amendments to the law and said the state would not act on it without the court’s permission. On February 27, the Haryana Assembly had passed amendments to the Act opening up thousands of acres of land to real estate and other non-forest activity in the area that was protected under it for over a century. The amendments to the Act were passed by the state assembly amid vociferous protests and a walkout by opposition parties. Haryana Chief Minister M L Khattar had said that the Punjab Land Preservation (Haryana Amendment) Bill, 2019, was the “need of the hour”, and had added that it was a “very old” Act and much has changed over a period of time. This issue has cropped up in the court which is dealing with a matter in which it had earlier directed demolition of illegal constructions in the forest area of Aravalli hills in Haryana. During the brief hearing on Friday, Mehta told the bench that the Assembly has passed the bill but it has not become an Act yet. He also said that media reports which claimed the amendments was passed by the state government to favour real estate developers were not correct.last_img read more
