Interview: Aspiring for greatness

first_img Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Topics: Strategy Strategy AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Dima Reiderman provides insight on the benefits of focusing on regulated markets and practical experience in growing a white label business 3rd January 2019 | By contenteditor Aspire Global chief operating officer Dima Reiderman reflects on the company’s rapid growth, highlighting regulated markets and practical experience as crucial Founded in 2005, igaming platform provider Aspire Global has established a strong presence in the notoriously competitive market by carving its own niche segment since going public a year ago. The company employs 180 staff, working with over 60 igaming brands, as well as powering and operating its proprietary casino and sports brand Karamba. Currently, it holds seven dot.country licences, most recently securing approval to enter Sweden’s re-regulated iGaming market. The fundamentals of its white label solution, says Reiderman, lie in removing some of the challenges which today’s igaming businesses face: “We can just add operators on top of what we have, and this is how [our platform has] been designed from the start. To be successful with us, all you need to be is excellent in marketing, because we handle all the day-to-day operations.” So how have they achieved such rapid progression within the highly competitive online casino market?“We’ve had the solution out there for a while, but we’ve been under the radar, traditionally. It requires knowledge and expertise – not a lot of gaming companies have 12 years under their belts,” Reiderman explains. “In igaming, that makes us a veteran.” One of the issues Aspire directly addresses through its offering is providing partners with the ability to operate under their multiple licences. What Reiderman feels gives Aspire an edge is their long-term strategy focusing on regulated markets, with the company constantly seeking to increase revenue from such territories: “We believe there’s stability in that – an unregulated market always has a certain level of risk because of the level of uncertainty. “You know regulated markets are there to stay, and you have the government to back them up with their own strategy. You can build on a long-term revenue stream in those territories.”Reiderman says that by focusing on regulated territories, copmanies can leverage the expertise of major media businesses, such as Google and Facebook.“Media companies who already have the capability and knowledge in generating a significant amount of traffic can now monetise on it with a completely new revenue stream from igaming.”The sheer size of this opportunity, coupled with the fact that multiple clients operate under its licence, makes it all the more crucial to maintain this whiter-than-white focus. “As a general guideline, we like to stay above board, and we guide our partners on where to go and where not to go,” he says. “We control the platform and the licenses are ours, so if someone does something risky it’s our licenses that are at risk. “ Additionally, Aspire manages players when it comes to CRM, payments and risk, fraud prevention and analysis, as well as the operations, which Reiderman sees as a “huge” undertaking to do alone. One way to reassure potential concerns is through Aspire’s commercial structure, which Reiderman feels is unique from others.“The vast majority of our income from the partners comes as a revenue share deal. In simple terms, we only make money when they do. So interests are really aligned as of day one. A fundamental difference Reiderman sees between Aspire and traditional platform providers is the B2C experience, which was the original focus before the company expanded into B2B solutions.He says: “We have B2C experience, so we know what it takes to be a successful operator just by doing it with our own brands, and Karamba is an example of that – it’s a well-known brand. We know how to replicate success to a partner of ours, and it is easier for them to trust us. It’s the same platform behind the scenes, the same games as well as the same operational backbone.” This expansion from B2C to B2B has led to what he calls “one vast knowledge base” where learnings from both business arms feed into one another. He does, however, note a clear segregation within the company to ensure there is no conflict of interest between competitors. As the company continues to grow and develop, Reiderman notes brand awareness will be the next challenge to overcome: “Traditionally our approach has been more hear-say, and most of our partnerships were referrals over the years. We’ve been changing that over the last year or two.” “We’re not interested in working with operators that are too small to succeed, so we find ourselves saying no more often than we’re saying yes! Trust runs through our DNA, and the commercial model is built to support that.” Additionally, Reiderman shared plans to continue adding further licences to the platform. In 2018, the company introduced two new verticals; sports betting and bingo, having operated as a casino company for 12 years previously. Further developments include the potential for future mergers and acquisitions. While Reiderman stated nothing significant has been executed as of yet, a “very good cash position” is spurring a search for the “right company.” With recent figures showing Aspire Global expects to meet its financial targets for 2020 one year ahead of schedule, the company is updating the new financial targets for 2021 to revenues of €200m and an EBITDA of €32m, excluding material acquisitions, with a raised target for the EBITDA-margin from 15% to 16%. Based on what we’ve seen from the company in recent years and the promising financial developments, the future seems bright for Aspire.

Image source: Getty Images. center_img A FTSE 100 dividend growth stock I’d buy to protect myself from market volatility The Federal Reserve’s decision to cut interest rates on Tuesday has helped share markets to bounce. Great news for stressed-out share investors, sure. But loading up on safe-haven stocks remains a great idea as the threat of the coronavirus remains significant.Healthcare is one of those go-to sectors for share investors as medicines and health-related services, of course, remain essential, irrespective of broader social, economic and political troubles.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…And so I reckon Hikma Pharmaceuticals (LSE: HIK) is a brilliant company to load into your stocks portfolio. The FTSE 100 pharmaceuticals giant certainly impressed with full-year trading numbers released in late February. Then it said that group revenue rose 6% in 2019, to $2.2bn. It’s a result that powered operating profit 33% higher to $493m.Good news!Demand is strong across all of Hikma’s businesses too. Sales across its Generics division leapt 33% year on year while revenues from its Injectables and Branded products rose 7% and 8% respectively.Hikma launched 108 new products across its markets and signed a further 18 licensing agreements in the US and the Middle East and North Africa (or MENA) regions to bolster its worldwide product portfolio. It’s no wonder City analysts expect Hikma to keep growing the bottom line for the foreseeable future. Profits rises of 4% and 10% are forecast for 2020 and 2021.Bright growth forecastsThe pharma ace’s profits outlook got even better with news of a blockbuster agreement with Glenmark Pharmaceuticals. The deal will see the former take care of the commercialisation of the Ryaltris nasal spray in the US, while its partner sorts things on the development and regulatory approval side. The move significantly bolsters Hikma’s position in the American nasal spray market, an area in which it is already the market leader by volume.That’s not the only good news to come out in recent days. Thanks to its strong balance sheet the Footsie firm has the financial strength to keep developing its pipeline and build on the 169 approvals that it received last year. Hikma cut its net debt (excluding co-development agreements and contingent liabilities) to $242m in 2019 from $361m in the prior 12-month period. This means that its net debt-to-core-EBITDA ratio sits at a rock-bottom 0.4 times.This impressive financial position means that annual dividends continue to sprint higher too. The business hiked last year’s total dividend to 44 US cents per share from 38 cents in 2018.A brilliant buy todayAt current prices, Hikma trades on a forward P/E ratio of 15.5 times. I consider this reading far too low given the strength of demand for its products and its brilliant pipeline.The healthcare giant’s share price has performed much more resiliently than the broader market as the coronavirus has shaken market sentiment. That aforementioned trading statement illustrates why, Hikma commenting that “as we do not have extensive operations or manufacturing in China, nor are we directly dependent on Chinese-manufactured goods or services, we do not currently anticipate any material impact.”Hikma’s low valuation and defensive qualities make it a brilliant buy for today, I feel. I’d happily buy it and hold on for years to come.  Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners.

Based in Cheltenham, Polly Symondson Recruitment (PSR) covers all UK locations outside of London.Polly Symondson has more than ten years experience working in the charity sector. She started her career as a fundraising coordinator before working up to senior management level in both international and national charities.She explained why she set up the company: “Whichever side of the recruitment process you find yourself on,” she said, “there are always obstacles to overcome. There can be drawbacks for candidates trying to find regional roles using London based consultancies; from my own experience, I often found myself short-listed for unsuitable roles purely on the basis of geography.“Too often recruitment consultants are great at delivering large numbers of candidates but not necessarily the right candidate for the job – a career in recruitment does not automatically mean you have an understanding of how complex the charity sector is.

Savané is director general of Cyclone, a company that publishes the opposition dailies Le Temps and LG Info. “If the DST, an interior ministry offshoot, is holding Savané then it should acknowledge this and should publicly say what he is accused of. Was he arrested for a common crime or was he arrested for a press offence? We call on the authorities to release this journalist, who is the second media executive to be arrested by the DST in less than two months, following Le Patriote managing editor Charles Sanga at the start of February.”Savané was arrested at around 1 p.m. yesterday at Cyclone’s offices in the Abidjan neighbourhood of Riviera Deux by police officers who removed computer equipment belonging to the company.This morning, the DST denied holding Savané, but his car is parked in the DST building’s courtyard and several sources say he was taken there after his arrest.Reporters Without Borders today reached a DST superintendent who said he was not available to answer questions. The organization also spoke to interior ministry spokesperson Nina Bintou Touré, who promised to contact senior DST and police officials in order to shed light on the matter.Savané is a member of the Côte d’Ivoire press owners association.

Credit: Kunal MukherjeePostdoctoral scholar Reid Van Lehn has been named to Forbes’s annual 30 Under 30 list in the science category. The list honors 30 outstanding individuals under 30 years old in 20 different categories, from venture capital to sports to science. Van Lehn was recognized for his research on chemically engineered nanoparticles and their interactions with cell membranes.“I’m honored to be included amongst this impressive list of scientists—both those named this year and in prior years,” Van Lehn says. “I know many dedicated researchers both at Caltech and elsewhere who are deserving of such accolades, and I feel very fortunate to have been recognized for my contributions. I would especially like to thank my colleagues and advisors, who have had a profound effect on my education and research and have been immensely supportive throughout my career.”Van Lehn uses molecular simulation to study what happens when synthetic molecules—engineered nanoparticles injected into the body—and biological molecules interact with cell membranes. During his graduate work at MIT, he discovered a mechanism by which certain kinds of nanoparticles insert themselves into cell membranes, a finding that could have implications in novel drug delivery pathways. As a postdoc in Professor of Chemistry Tom Miller’s group at Caltech, Van Lehn uses simulations to study how membrane proteins integrate into cell membranes via a protein-conducting channel called the Sec translocon.This fall, Van Lehn will join the faculty at the University of Wisconsin–Madison, in its Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering. His research will focus on developing and utilizing new simulation methods to understand the interactions of bioactive materials and engineer novel nanoparticles for therapeutic applications.When not in the lab, Van Lehn can be found avidly playing or watching sports. “I hail from Pittsburgh, so I primarily follow the Pittsburgh Steelers, Penguins, and Pirates,” he says. “I also play pickup Ultimate Frisbee, and I can occasionally be seen being horribly outplayed in pickup basketball.” Education Caltech Scholar Van Lehn Named to Forbes’s 30 Under 30 List By LORI DAJOSE Published on Thursday, January 14, 2016 | 1:07 pm Name (required)  Mail (required) (not be published)  Website  faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,PCC – EducationVirtual Schools PasadenaDarrell Done EducationHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyCitizen Service CenterPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimes Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box.
