Snaitech enters Spain as Playtech deal nears completion

first_img Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Snaitech managing director Fabio Schiavolin is targeting a swift rollout of the company’s ‘Smart Technology’ offering across Spain “in the coming months” after securing a licence to make its first move outside its home market of Italy.Snaitech is set to have a retail betting presence in Spain through the BetSmart platform by the end of this summer after linking up with operator Apuestas de España to launch Apuestas by Snai in the country.Snaitech will ultimately offer various online and mobile app sports betting products, as well as betting terminals and payment processing services.Having secured a B2B supplier licence from the country’s gaming regulator, the DGOJ, Snaitech is now confident of meeting the “challenge of internationalisation,” Schiavolin (pictured) said.“The Snaitech universe is being transformed and is driving the company beyond its position as an Italian market leader,” he said. “After launching in July, in the following months we want to expand our presence in the Spanish gaming sector in different autonomous communities.”Schiavolin will continue to serve as managing director of the company until 2021, while it has been confirmed that Playtech chief executive Mor Weizer will become Snaitech’s chairman.Playtech chief financial officer Andrew Smith will also join the board to serve alongside Snaitech’s Andrea Nappa, Chiara Palmeri, Mara Vanzetta and Raffaella Viscardi.In other news, Playtech confirmed this (Thursday) morning that it is set to complete its full takeover of Snaitech on August 3 after confirming that it now owns 96.5 per cent of the Italian gaming company’s shareholding following the conclusion of the mandatory takeover offer period.A spokesperson for Playtech told iGamingBusiness.com today that the timing of Snaitech’s launch in Spain and the impending completion of the buy-out was coincidental, with “the takeover running to its own timetable while it has been business as usual at Snaitech” since the transaction was announced.“There is obviously an opportunity for Playtech in Spain in the future, but the priority right now is to focus on the Italian business,” the spokesperson added.In its market announcement this morning, Playtech confirmed that its Italian subsidiary, Pluto, would initiate a so-called ‘squeeze-out’ period in which the remaining stake will be acquired from minority shareholders at a set price of €2.19 per share.Snaitech’s shares will be suspended from trading on August 1 and, following the conclusion of the squeeze-out period, the company will be delisted from the Borsa Italiana’s Mercato Telematico Azionario on August 3.In April, Playtech announced an initial acquisition of 70.6 per cent of Snaitech in a €846m ($1bn) deal funded by cash and new debt.Having secured approval for the transaction last month from Consob, Italy’s financial regulator, Playtech was required to make an offer for the remaining shares.Weizer said at the time of the takeover announcement that the transaction would “improve the quality and diversification of group revenue, whilst delivering exposure to high growth end markets”.

Photo: The Upper Room, via Facebook[Episcopal News Service] As an Episcopalian, Brian Ide has been fixated recently on the passage in the New Testament that describes the brief period – estimated to have been about 10 days – between Jesus’ ascension and the Pentecost, during which the apostles were alone and uncertain about their path forward, praying together in “a room upstairs” in Jerusalem.As a filmmaker, Ide wants to share that story and its spiritual implications with movie audiences. The tentative title of his film-to-be: “The Upper Room.”“We can see ourselves in those unique 10 days,” Ide told Episcopal News Service by phone. “It’s that challenge of stepping into faith, even when we’re burdened by fear and uncertainty.”Ide, a member of All Saints’ Episcopal Church in Beverly Hills, California, drew on his career as a movie director to help form a ministry at the church with other parishioners who work in the Hollywood film industry. In 2018, their efforts culminated in “This Day Forward,” a feature-length film about an Iowa family’s struggles with cancer and faith, for which they took a grassroots approach to finding audiences, hosting individual showings at theaters and churches around the country.For “The Upper Room,” Ide envisions something bigger, both for the movie and the underlying ministry. His filmmaking team traveled to the Holy Land last year to flesh out a story for the new movie, for which they are budgeting nearly $3 million with hopes for a wider theatrical release. And Ide has overseen the creation of Grace Based Films, a nonprofit with a long-term plan for turning spiritually rich stories into thought-provoking movies.“I can’t wait to see how it all comes out,” said the Rev. Anne Mallonee, who serves as chief ecclesiastical officer at Church Pension Group. Mallonee was among a handful of clergy members who joined the filmmakers on their Holy Land trip last July. She said in an interview with ENS that Ide’s energetic work mirrors a trend she has noticed: lay Christians finding creative ways of putting their talents and abilities in service of “the ministry that comes from being baptized.”“The Spirit really does seem to be inspiring all kinds of people to be thinking in terms of mission,” she said.Director Brian Ide, left, and cinematographer, Kyle Ramsey Moe discuss production design ideas while looking at a first-century model of Jerusalem during a Holy Land trip in July 2019. Photo: The Upper Room, via FacebookThat inspiration was evident in “This Day Forward,” which is heading toward an official release June 1 on streaming services and DVD. The movie was backed by donations, and Ide and his team from All Saints’ kept the production on a modest scale.“We didn’t have the resources of a big studio to just throw money at it. Instead, it was just sweat equity for us,” Ide said.They worked hard not just making the movie, but also promoting it during a 53-city tour in fall 2018. Ide estimates he and his team drove 17,000 miles to introduce the movie to audiences, and they embarked on another limited tour with the film last year, through south Australia.The filmmakers have planned a few additional showings of “This Day Forward” in the coming months, prior to its digital release, and with this distribution deal, Ide thinks the movie “will have a long life, which is great.”His primary focus, meanwhile, has shifted to development of “The Upper Room.” The initial idea came to Ide while he was with a group from All Saints’ on a pilgrimage to the Holy Land. Toward the end of the trip, he started thinking about how the experience might shape his next film project, and he was particularly intrigued by a passage in the first chapter of Acts of the Apostles: “When they had entered the city, they went to the room upstairs where they were staying.”The chapter continues by relaying that, after Jesus ascended to heaven, his apostles “were constantly devoting themselves to prayer,” but they had yet to receive the Holy Spirit and begin their ministry in the world.“You can’t help but imagine that there would be a range of emotions, of fear and anticipation and imagination,” Ide said.He began sketching narrative outlines for a possible script, and in April 2019, Virginia Theological Seminary hosted a sort of theological focus group for Ide and his fellow filmmakers that provided them with input from Mallonee, the seminary’s dean the Rev. Ian Markham, and a range of other Episcopal leaders.With that group’s encouragement, Ide recruited Mallonee and a few others to join his filmmaking team on their own trip to the Holy Land, with the goal of developing ideas and supplying inspiration, accuracy and depth to the ultimate work of the writer and filmmakers.It was Mallonee’s first trip to the Holy Land, and she said she was particularly moved by the group’s visit to an archeological dig where researchers were uncovering a temple where Jesus was thought to have taught.“It helped to envision life there,” she said, and she also felt a direct connection between past and present. “Jesus is here, God is here, we are here. God’s love is here now, and we’re a part of it. It was really powerful.”The Rev. Greg Millikin, rector at Grace Episcopal Church in New Lenox, Illinois, also joined the pilgrimage, his second to the Holy Land, and he described it as different from the overly scheduled tours that many pilgrims experience. This was more contemplative, particularly during the two days they spent in the garden of Gethsemane, he said.“It really kind of zaps you back 2,000 years, and you can feel it,” he said.Millikin has known Ide for about 20 years, since both attended All Saints’ in Beverly Hills, and Millikin has professional roots in the film business. He worked in studio marketing for 10 years before leaving his job in 2012 to attend Virginia Theological Seminary. He was ordained in 2016 and has served at Grace Episcopal Church for two years.Now, as an informal adviser on “The Upper Room,” he sees himself as part of Ide’s theological “think tank,” and he thinks Ide’s story is mining fertile spiritual ground. “What does it mean for these disciples to have a leader leave, and that they have to kind of find a voice amongst them or some kind of direction or path forward that would end up becoming the church?”While Grace Based Films is raising the money needed to turn “The Upper Room” into a high-caliber professional production, the writer on Ide’s team, Nick Schober, is working on finalizing a script that will draw on the pilgrimage experience and input from participants. Half of the movie will be set in the apostles’ time, and the other half will be set in the present, though all of it will be filmed on sets in the United States, due to the prohibitive costs of shooting in the Holy Land, Ide said.He would like to begin filming this year if the financing comes through by then. The film’s success would enable more projects like it.Churches of all denominations supported “This Day Forward,” and Ide’s nonprofit film company will continue to take an ecumenical approach to its mission. He sees a receptive audience in “people that are really hungry for honest stories about faith journeys.”– David Paulsen is an editor and reporter for Episcopal News Service.

I’d like to know if the builder is just going to dump this problem in the City’s lap and leave it to the taxpayers to fix. Wendover brings affordable housing to communityWendover Housing Partners, a privately held real estate development, investment and management company, today announces it is breaking ground on a new affordable, family apartment community in Apopka, Wellington Park. Located at the corner of Thompson Road and East 1st Street, construction on the 120-unit development will be completed in November 2017.“As with all of Wendover’s family affordable communities, we took time to find the perfect location for Wellington Park—which is close to public transportation, major highways, schools, health care facilities and entertainment options,” said President and Founder of Wendover Housing Partners, Jonathan L. Wolf. “We’ve enlisted Roger B. Kennedy Inc. to build the property, which features the same high quality materials and exciting amenities found in other communities.”Once completed, Wellington Park amenities will include a swimming pool, fitness center, playground, car care facility and a business center. The community offers one, two and three bedroom apartment homes with open floor plans designed for everyday comfort and convenience. Each unit features energy efficient appliances, walk-in closets and spacious galley kitchens with eating bars, as well as window coverings and washer/dryer connections.“Our goal is to provide economically viable residences that families are proud to call home—and Wellington Park is another great example of Wendover’s commitment to creating quality housing at affordable prices,” adds Wolf. “In addition to taking advantage of the amenities and green space residents will have at their disposal, Wellington Park residents can engage even more through free enrichment programs and events. We’re building more than apartments, we’re fostering a tight-knit community.”Wendover will begin accepting rental applications for Wellington Park in August 2017.

Homeless charity helped 300 Limerick people in 2013

first_imgNewsHomeless charity helped 300 Limerick people in 2013By John Keogh – August 7, 2014 571 Previous articleStories sounding across riverNext articleLimerick suicide patrol home and dry John Keoghhttp://www.limerickpost.ie Politicians should work together to end homeless crisis Facebook WhatsApp TAGSFocus IrelandGer Spillanehomelessness Linkedin  FOCUS Ireland provided support to 229 people in Limerick in 2013 who were homeless or at risk of losing their homes, according to figures from the charity’s annual report.In addition, a total of 70 households were also either prevented from losing their home or settled into a new home as part of Focus Ireland’s prevention and tenancy sustainment services, available at its advice and information centre on Catherine Street.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Focus Ireland’s service manager for Limerick Ger Spillane said: “There was a sharp 25 per cent increase in the number of people we supported last year as more people than ever were at risk of losing their home and the housing and homeless crisis deepened. Focus Ireland responded directly to this growing need by expanding our key advice and information services across the country to help prevent many families and people from losing their homes.”Mr Spillane warned: “The rising demand for support is continuing as we have supported 8,000 people up to the end of June this year. We have families coming to us every day who have lost their home and in many cases the best we can do is get them into a B&B or hotel so they are off the streets.“This is not acceptable. The government has said we have reached the limits of austerity and I believe the growing homeless crisis proves this. There must be urgent investment in building social housing now. Focus Ireland has called for an investment of €500 million in the budget to provide at least 3,000 homes and also much-needed jobs to help boost the economy.”Nationally, the charity supported more than 10,000 people last year – an increase of 25 per cent on 2012.Focus Ireland says that there are still up to 5,000 people who are homeless, while just under 100,000 households remain on housing waiting listings nationwide.

Therefore, argues Dwivedi, the private sector must also be roped in and “all health care facilities, all 36 institutes, all companies and all entities related to health care sector” must be nationalized to defeat the pandemic.To buttress his point, the petitioner highlights the poor state of affairs of India’s public health care system, and attributes it primarily to the lack of expenditure on the same.”In the budget of 2020, India chose to allocate only 1.6% of its total estimated budget expenditure on public health…For years expenditure on public health facilities has been low and as a result of which India’s public health infrastructure is substandard and inadequate, more peculiar in the time of pandemics like COVID-19, in comparison to the world and unfortunately we could not see much development in this front.”On the other hand, he states that private healthcare facilities in India are world class which is evidenced through the steady growth of our medical tourism. These facilities have percolated down to small towns and are not only limited to metropolises, he adds. In this light, “it is factually incorrect and misleading that India does not have equipped hospitals and health care related facilities”, submits Dwivedi.However, the concern is that “private facilities remain out of bound for the majority of Indians as the likely cost to be incurred is prohibitive in the nature and acts as a barrier.”The petitioner goes on to iterate that the Central government is responsible for the overall well-being of India and has a duty to protect Indians during this crisis presented by the global outbreak of Corona virus. Along with the Union, States and Union Territories are also responsible for the health of their population and it is the collective obligation of these Governments to mitigate the ill effects of the pandemic.Thus, invoking Articles 21 and 47 of the Constitution, it is argued that the right to get treatment is part of the Fundamental Right to life and that improvement of public health is amongst the primary duties of the State respectively.The petitioner also refers to Article 38 of the Constitution, which requires the State to eliminate inequalities related to status, facilities and opportunities. Apropos this, it is emphasized that “nothing would weaken status and dignity of a person more than the inability to get himself/herself and its family tested, if need be, and treated of this deadly disease due to financial constraints and lack of public health care system”.With reference to measures taken by India currently, like the nationwide lockdown and social distancing, Dwivedi claims that we have been learning from the experience of other countries who dealt with an advanced or worst stage of the pandemic. Furthering the same logic, it is submitted that many countries have opted to nationalize their health care system, which has paid dividends. Thus, in the Indian context, it is urged that “once nationalization of the health care facilities and related institutions happen, then the struggle against COVID-19 would become effective.As an alternative to nationalization of the healthcare sector, the petitioner has prayed for an order directing all the healthcare related entities to conduct tests, all subsequent tests, procedures and treatments in relation to COVID-19 disease free of cost for all citizens of India till the pandemic COVID-19 is contained.Click Here To Download Petition[Read Petition] Next Storylast_img read more

Other Cases following Sulamérica’s Case U.K. Cases Following the Court of Appeal’s Judgment in Sul América’s Case, in Arsanovia’s Case[2], the Queen’s Bench Division (Commercial Court) accepted the law of contract (Indian) as the implied choice of the law of arbitration despite the parties having expressly choosing England as the “seat”. The Court thereafter applied the substantive law provisions in the Indian Arbitration and Conciliation Act, 1996 to decide the disputes arising out of the arbitration agreement, by taking assistance of expert witnesses on Indian Arbitration Law on existence of arbitration agreement between the parties. In Habas Sinai’s Case[3], Hemblen J interpreted Sul America’s Case as prescribing that the choice of the seat of arbitration is likely to be overwhelmingly significant in a situation where no substantive law is expressed in the main contract; but where the substantive law is expressed in the main contract, this is a “strong indication” in relation to the parties’ intention as to the proper law governing the arbitration agreement, so much so that parties’ choice of the seat may not in itself be sufficient to displace the indication of choice implicit in the express choice of substantive law. The Judgment of the Court of Appeal on 2nd January, 2020 in Kabab- Ji SAL’s Case[4] is also a recent development of case law on the subject. Art. 1 of the main contract provides that ‘This Agreement consists of’ all the terms listed therein. Art. 14 provides that the dispute is to be settled by arbitration in Paris. Art. 15 provides that ‘This Agreement’ shall be governed by English law. Parties dis not specify any law governing the arbitration agreement. The arbitrators concluded that the governing law of arbitration is French Law (Paris being Seat), and found that the defendant (‘KFG’) was a party to the arbitration agreement. Under section 103(2)(a) and (b) of the English Arbitration Act 1996, KFG challenged the enforcement of the award in England and Wales. The Court cited Sul America’s case and concluded that Articles 1 and 15 of the FDA provided for an express choice of English law to govern the arbitration agreement and applied English law to hold that KFG is not a party to the contract or the arbitration agreement. The Court therefore refused enforcement and recognition of the award. It is interesting to note that the Court of Appeal refused to stay the English proceedings while proceedings challenging the Award at the seat before Paris Cour d’appel are pending setting stage for a potentially conflicting judgments in in England and Wales and France. Singapore Cases The Singapore High Court in BCY’s case[5], followed the decision of the Court of Appeal in Sul America’s case. It is noteworthy that BCY was a departure from First Link Investment Corp. Ltd. Vs. GT Payment Pte. Ltd. (First Link)[6], a decision of Assistant Registrar, Singapore just two year’s prior. In BCY’s Case the parties simply chose Singapore to be the Seat of Arbitration and for the main Contract to be governed in accordance with New York Law. Chong J noted that “the doctrine of separability would not be used to justify preferring the Seat law over the substantive law. This is because separability is a limited doctrine which goes no further then saying that any challenge that the Arbitration agreement is invalid does not in itself effect the validity of the Arbitration agreement. It does not mean that the Arbitration agreement is distinct from the main Contract for all intense and purposes, once the main contract has been framed”. Interestingly, Chong J referred to how Arts 34(2)(a)(i) and 36(1)(a)(i) of the Model Law merely “give effect to any express or implied choice-of-law by the parties and, failing such agreement, prescribing a default rule, select the law of the arbitral seat” citing Gary B Born, International Commercial Arbitration (Wolters Kluwer Law & Business, 2nd Ed, 2014) at p. 526.]. The Judgment in BCY’s Case was followed later by Singapore High Court in BMO Vs. BMP[7]. 4. Scheme of the English and Indian Arbitration Law English Arbitration Act, 1996 The scheme of the English Arbitration Act, 1996, allows parties the freedom to choose both the proper and procedural law applicable to the dispute except for certain express mandatory provisions[8] which mandatorily applies to London seated arbitrations. These relate primarily to the powers of the English Courts to intervene in an arbitral dispute, the immunity of the arbitrator, and enforcement. The Arsanovia’s Case noticed above is an example where English Court (London being the Seat of Arbitration) has applied the proper or substantive law provisions of Indian Arbitration and Conciliation Act, 1996 to decide the disputes. It may not be out of place to mention here that in National Iranian Oil Company v Crescent Petroleum Company International Ltd v. Crescent Gas Corporation Ltd [9], the parties had agreed to refer the dispute to arbitration seated in London but Contract to be governed by Iranian Law. In a challenge to the Award it was argued that section 7 of the English Arbitration Act, 1996 (which provides for separability of arbitration agreement), being a non-mandatory substantive provision and not a procedural one, would not apply as the proper law of the contract is Iranian Law. The Court rejected this argument holding that since arbitration was seated in London, s7 of the Act applied unless it was disapplied by the parties by “agreement to the contrary”. While s7 is not a mandatory provision, the Court held that an “agreement to the contrary” in relation to the specific provision is required to disapply it and that the choice of Iranian law as the proper law of the contract was not an agreement to the contrary in relation to separability . The Arbitration and Conciliation Act, 1996 Unlike in England, if the seat is held or found to be in India, the three-stage enquiry in Sul America’s Case may not be consistent with the scheme of the Indian Arbitration and Conciliation Act, 1996 (‘the Act, 1996’). The Act,1996 ensures party autonomy in respect of most curial matters but proper law provisions, in contrast, are made non-derogable, even though the Act, 1996 does not use the expression “mandatory”. The wording of Section 2(2) suggests that the intention of the Legislature was to make provisions of Part I compulsorily applicable to an arbitration, including an international commercial arbitration, which takes place in India. Parties cannot, by agreement, override or exclude the non-derogable provisions of Part I in such arbitrations[10]. Broadly speaking (barring few exceptions), the curial law is contained in Chapters III to VI, whereas proper law of the contract is covered in large measure in the other Chapters of Part I[11]. In BALCO’s Case [12], the Supreme Court of India held that the Arbitration and Conciliation Act, 1996 has accepted the territoriality principle which has been adopted in the Uncitral Model Law and further that Part I of the Arbitration Act, 1996 would have no application to international commercial arbitration held outside India. Section 2(2) makes a declaration that Part I of the Act, 1996 shall apply to all arbitrations which take place within India. Consequently therefore, once the seat is held or found to be within India, even the non-derogable substantive provisions of the Act, 1996 shall mandatorily govern the arbitration agreement which would include questions relating to existence, legality and validity of the Arbitration Agreement. But where the arbitration agreement is silent on both the law of arbitration and the seat/place of arbitration, implied choice of the law governing the underlying contract as the law of arbitration may play a crucial role in determining the Court’s supervisory jurisdiction. However, in two cases which were decided earlier under the Bhatia Principle [13] namely Indtel Technical Services Private Ltd. v. W.S. Atkins Rail Limited [14] and Citation Infowares Ltd. v. Equinox Corpn[15], the Supreme Court of India rejected the plea of implied choice of law of contract to apply as the law of arbitration. The said plea was raised relying on the judgment of the Supreme Court in NTPC v. Singer[16] (a judgment under the old arbitration law regime before the Act, 1996), where the Court held that where the proper law of the contract is expressly chosen by the parties, such law must, in the absence of an unmistakable intention to the contrary, govern the arbitration agreement which, though collateral or ancillary to the main contract, is nevertheless a part of such contract. It is desirable that there is clarity in law and a uniform approach in deciding the choice of applicable laws in international commercial arbitrations as divergent approaches may set the stage for potentially rival conflicting judgments across different jurisdictions and create hurdles in recognition or enforcement of awards.

The Division Bench comprising of Justices Siddhartha Varma and Ajit Kumar has thus ordered the Nagar Nigam, Prayagraj, to come up with proposals to establish at least one (Covid) clinic per two Wards in the city. “After the clinics are established, the State shall provide regular staff/doctors for the clinics,” it added. The Court has also asked the authorities to ensure proper fogging and santization of the city, to prevent the spread of Covid infection. Inter alia, the Court ordered for appointment of Advocate Commissioners to oversee implementation of Covid 19 Guidelines in the Wards assigned to them. This is in addition to the 24 Advocate Commissioners who were appointed earlier. They have been asked to file a collective report on the following aspects: Whether the residents in the Ward in which the Advocate Commissioners have been appointed as Commissioners are maintaining social distancing and are wearing their masks;If any social distancing norm is violated or if it is found that any individual in a particular Ward is not wearing mask then the Advocate Commissioner may submit a report in this regard to the Zonal Officers of the Ward who in their turn shall communicate to the Municipal Commissioner and the Municipal Commissioner in his turn shall submit a report to the Senior Superintendent of Police and thereafter the said report shall also be placed before this Court. These reports, needless to say, should be supported by evidence;The Advocate Commissioners shall, with the help of their Corporators, go around their Wards and also submit a report with regard to the bad drainage, if it is found. If the Corporators do not cooperate, a report to that effect may also be submitted;If the surface of any road in the Ward is found to be bad, then the Advocate Commissioners shall report about the same to the Municipal Commissioner and also to this Court;The Advocate Commissioners shall also see that the Nagar Nigam chalks out plans for opening public clinics in every Ward for the purposes of initial first-aid, checking of Blood Sugar and checking of Blood-Pressure etc. In the present times, these clinics may also be used as Sample Collection Centres for COVID-19. The learned Additional Advocate General and the counsel for the Nagar Nigam agreed that a concerted effort would be made to have within ten days a clinic for every two Wards after getting suitable premises. Learned Additional Advocate General also agreed that as and when clinics are opened, doctors from the Provincial Medical Services shall be appointed.
