Affiliate giant Catena Media has amended the terms of the second and final earn-out payment for its purchase of BayBets, the German sports betting affiliate it agreed to acquire in December 2017. This will see Catena take full control of the business earlier than expected, and for a lower price. 9th July 2019 | By contenteditor Catena Media amends earn-out for BayBets acquisition Tags: Online Gambling Affiliate giant Catena Media has amended the terms of the second and final earn-out payment for its purchase of BayBets, the German sports betting affiliate it agreed to acquire in December 2017.Catena has agreed to pay a fixed sum of €13m (£11.7m/$14.6m) for the final earn-out payment. This will be paid in three cash installments, by October 1 this year.The amendment means that the final sum paid to acquire BayBets will be lower than the initial agreement, with Catena also taking full control of the German assets earlier than expected.Under the original deal, Catena made an upfront payment of €26.5m for BayBets, which operates a network of 50 sports betting affiliate sites, primarily focused on the German market.Catena then made its first earn-out payment of €13.5m, of which 35% was paid in shares. In February this year, Catena issued 468,132 shares at a subscription price of SEK103.67 per share to make up this 35%.As a result of the amendment, and taking into account the earlier payments, the final total consideration for the BayBets acquisition is €53m, lower than the original maximum consideration of €63.5m.“By amending the final earn-out terms we are both obtaining full operational control at an earlier stage as well as lowering the final and total cost of the BayBets acquisition,” Catena chief executive Per Hellberg explained. “We are thereby avoiding further dilution as well as strengthening our balance sheet.” Finance Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Regions: Europe Central and Eastern Europe Germany Topics: Finance Sports betting Strategy Email Address AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter

urbazon / iStockBy Bill Hutchinson, ABC News(ST. LOUIS) — St. Louis police confirmed on Monday that they are investigating a confrontation caught on cellphone video of some white neighbors of Mayor Lyda Krewson pointing guns at protesters marching by their mansion on the way to the mayor’s home.The episode occurred Sunday afternoon, when hundreds of demonstrators entered the gated Central West End neighborhood of St. Louis, banging drums and chanting for Krewson to resign and “take your cops with you.”Cellphone video that went viral on social media showed a white couple—a man armed with what appeared to be a semiautomatic rifle and a woman wielding a silver-plated pistol with her finger on the trigger—emerging from their five-story limestone home. They were pointing the weapons at the protesters and yelling at them that they were on a private street. Demonstrators are heard in the videos telling other protesters to keep moving toward Krewson’s home and to ignore the couple.The St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department [SLMPD] told ABC News on Monday that the couple, who police described as the victims, placed a “call for help” at 7:23 p.m. and that they are investigating the confrontation as a “trespassing/assault 4th intimidation” case.“The victims stated they were on their property when they heard a loud commotion coming from the street,” according to an incident summary of the ongoing investigation provided to ABC News by the SLMPD. “When the victims went to investigate the commotion, they observed a large group of subjects forcefully break an iron gate marked with ‘No Trespassing’ and ‘Private Street’ signs.“Once through the gate, the victims advised the group that they were on a private street and trespassing and told them to leave,” according to the couple’s statement to the police included in the summary. “The group began yelling obscenities and threats of harm to both victims. When the victims observed multiple subjects who were armed, they then armed themselves and contacted police.”No one was injured in the incident.Videos of the encounter did not show any armed protesters and police officials told ABC News, “We do not have anything further to provide at this time.”The couple released a statement Monday afternoon identifying themselves as lawyers, Mark McCloskey, 63, and Patricia McCloskey, 61. They said they wanted to set the record straight that they support the Black Lives Matter movement and that the “actions of a few individuals who chose to exploit the otherwise peaceful protest” put them “in fear of imminent harm,” according to the couple’s statement.“The peaceful protesters were not the subject of scorn or disdain by the McCloskeys,” the statement reads. “To the contrary, they were expecting and supportive of the message of the protesters. The actions of violence, destruction of property and acts of threatening aggression by a few individuals commingling with the peaceful protesters, gave rise to trepidation and fear of imminent and grave harm.“Both Mr. and Mrs. McCloskey acted lawfully on their property which sits on a private gated lane in the City of St. Louis,” the statement reads. “Their actions were borne solely of fear and apprehension, the genesis of which was not race related. In fact, the agitators responsible for the trepidation were white.”The couple said they’ve held a “long-standing commitment to protecting the civil rights of clients victimized at the hands of law enforcement.”Albert S. Watkins, a lawyer for the couple, added, “The McCloskeys want to make sure no one thinks less of BLM, its message and the means it is employing to get its message out because of the actions of a few white individuals who tarnished a peaceful protest.”Several videos of the incident posted on social media by protestors and journalists who witnessed the standoff had been viewed millions of times by Monday morning.President Trump retweeted one of the videos on Monday shot by Daniel Shular, a graduate student at the University of Missouri School of Journalism, without explanation.The demonstrators continued on to Krewson’s home, where they painted the word “resign” on the street outside her residence.Krewson, a first-term Democratic mayor, sparked an angry backlash from demonstrators last week when, during her regular public coronavirus briefing on Friday, she read aloud the names and addresses of protesters who sent her petitions calling for the city to defund the police department. The briefing was broadcast by the mayor’s office on Facebook Live.“It is shocking and misguided for Mayor Lyda Krewson of St. Louis, to broadcast the addresses of those who dare to express a different viewpoint on an issue of public concern,” the ACLU of Missouri said in a statement. “It serves no apparent purpose beyond intimidation. We are stronger when we foster open dialogue. The chilling of debate should bother everyone, no matter whether they agree or disagree with the mayor on this particular issue.”In the Facebook Live video, which has been taken down, Krewson said the petitions were given to her when she met with protesters outside City Hall.“The conversation really wasn’t a conversation, I’ll be honest with you, because there was a very loud response from the demonstrators. So they gave me some papers about how they thought,” Krewson said in the Facebook Live video viewed by ABC News. She then went to her desk, got the petitions and proceeded to read some of them.After reading the petitions, Krewson said, “We’re not going to take all the money away from the police. I think we need our police department.”The mayor responded to the criticism in a statement she tweeted on Friday, in which she apologized while explaining that the petitions and the names and addresses she read are public information.“I’d like to apologize for identifying individuals who presented letters to me at City Hall today,” Krewson wrote. “This was during one of my Facebook updates as I was answering routine questions. Never did I intend to harm anyone or cause distress. The update is removed and again, I apologize.”Meanwhile, petitioners, including the ACLU, are collecting signatures on a Change.org petition calling for Krewson’s resignation. As of Monday, the petition had collected more than 46,000 signatures.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.
Divergent foraging strategies may emerge within a population due to a combination of physiological and environmental factors; yet to persist, neither strategy should offer a consistent selective advantage over the alternative in the long term. Murphy’s petrels Pterodroma ultima from Henderson Island (24°20′S, 128°20′W) in the South Pacific Ocean are highly vagile, and exhibit two distinct foraging trip types during incubation; similar proportions of birds undertake either looping trips around the South Pacific Gyre to waters off Peru (hereafter “East”) or trips south-west of the colony towards the Subtropical Front (“South”) (mean maximum ranges of c. 3800 or 2000 km from the colony, respectively). However, the relative benefits of the distinct trip types remain unclear. Through tracking birds with GPS and salt-water immersion loggers in 2015, the fine-scale foraging behaviour was examined for East (trip durations: 14.1–19.8 days, maximum ranges 2387–4823 km) and South trips (12.9–25.8 days, 1565–1991 km). Data on behaviour classified from GPS tracks, the number of wet bouts per hour (a proxy for landing rates) and wind speeds, were used to distinguish two distinct foraging modes: birds on East trips spent more time in directed movement, whereas those on South trips spent a greater proportion of time in area-restricted search (ARS) behaviour. East trips were associated with higher overall mass gain, and wet bouts occurred in equal proportions during directed movement and ARS behaviour. This suggests that in unproductive marine environments, it may be more profitable to maximise area covered to increase the chances of encountering prey. Analysis of lower-resolution geolocator data (collected from 2011 to 2014) indicated that individuals were largely consistent in trip type between years. Since birds that conducted East trips were 19% lighter on departure from the colony and experienced more frequent tailwinds on foraging trips, we speculate that these birds may benefit from reduced movement costs, whilst also experiencing reduced competition for foraging opportunities.
Nearly 900 estate agency branches have closed over the past six months, or 4% of the UK’s 22,270 branches.The claim is made by BestAgent, which says its unique market-wide industry database enables it to monitor estate agency branches as they close.BestAgent manages all the UK’s property listings on a daily basis and claims ‘near 100%’ coverage of the property market and industry, although some of the agents on its list could also be property consultants who only list properties occasionally on the portals.“From this monitoring we are able to see which agents appear to have closed, which we measure by counting 30 days of no listings since the last detected live property listing,” says founder Charlie Lamdin.BestAgent was launched in September 2019 and offers estate agents a much richer level of data about their local market and competitors than even the big portals are able to offer.“On the back of the closure of so many agent branches, there is a wave of mostly self-employed new agent businesses appearing,” says Lamdin.“We even have one-man-band agents using BestAgent BackOffice as a website and portal uploading platform at no cost, who seem to be doing brisk trade.But he says that even before Covid there was severe pressure on many agencies who were laying off staff.“The uncertainty created during the first lockdown in March 2020 will have led to a larger wave of closures in the second half of 2020 than was already happening,” he says.“But to lose 4% of all companies in six months is a deep cut. It’s fascinating to see the growth in the self-employed model.”estate agency branch closures Charlie Lamdin Best Agent February 3, 2021Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?
