Regions: Europe Southern Europe Greece AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Lottery Tags: Online Gambling Houst to depart as financial chief at OPAP Email Address Greek gaming operator OPAP has confirmed that Michal Houst is to step down as chief financial officer and deputy chief executive by the end of September.Houst, who will also leave his role as an executive board member with OPAP, is exiting the operator in order to pursue other opportunities.He has served as CFO at OPAP since 2013, shortly after joining EMMA Group as an investment director and playing a key role in the privatisation of OPAP.In January of this year, Houst expanded his responsibilities by becoming deputy CEO of OPAP.“I have genuinely enjoyed the last six years at OPAP and feel really proud to have had the opportunity to impact the radical transformation that the company has undergone over this period,” Houst said.“I am confident that the already set foundations will allow OPAP to continue its successful path, adding value and further solidifying its unique position in the gaming spectrum in Greece and in general.”OPAP’s CEO, Damian Cope, added: “I want to thank Michal for his major contribution to OPAP Group during the past six years. His relentless focus and personal dedication have played a critical part in OPAP’s development during this time.”Houst began his professional career as a financial manager at JM Engineering before moving to PPF Group as a financial analyst. In 2010, he became chief banking analyst at PPF Russia, with a focus on Nomos Bank, and later went on to serve as project manager for the bank.OPAP has already commenced the search to identify and appoint a successor to Houst and expects to provide further details in the near future.Confirmation of Houst’s departure comes after it was revealed last week that Czech gaming and lottery giant Sazka Group has put forward an offer of €2.06bn (£1.86bn/$2.31bn) to gain full control of OPAP.Sazka is seeking to acquire 67% of the shares in OPAP as it already indirectly holds a 33% stake in OPAP via Emma Delta, a business of which it is the majority shareholder, with a 66.7% stake.In its offer, Sazka has set out how it would not intend to change OPAP’s current strategy and would continue to focus on maintaining the operator’s presence in the Greek market.Sazka has said that should the deal go through the acquisition would represent the largest all-cash voluntary offer in Greece for more than a decade.last_img read more

In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool.center_img Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares T Sligo | Wednesday, 26th February, 2020 | More on: IAG LGEN Image source: Getty Images. Both the FTSE 100 and the FTSE 250 have shown plenty of signs of turbulence of late but I believe this could open up some great buying opportunities.A market crash can cause panic among investors and it might be tempting to withdraw all of your holdings and cash them in.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…But I would think twice before doing this as by selling your shares, you will be turning a paper loss into an actual loss.Think about why you chose to invest in these stocks in the first place. Are the fundamentals still the same? If nothing has changed, then why not continue holding them?And you could even buy into new-to-your portfolio companies that have become more affordable due to a share price fall. Here are a couple of shares that might be undervalued in today’s markets.International Consolidated AirlinesInternational Consolidated Airlines (LSE: IAG) is perhaps the most undervalued FTSE 100 stock, I feel.The owner of British Airways and Iberia is one of the largest airline groups in the world. Understandably, with the global economy wobbling and the coronavirus outbreak, the IAG share price has taken a hammering of late. In the past month, it has fallen by 7%.Despite this, over three years its stock price is up 12%.From operating its airlines, IAG understandably has a large fixed-cost-base. Therefore, issues on the horizon like Brexit, the coronavirus outbreak, industrial action, the rising fuel price and a global recession make evaluating the company a challenge.But it’s now trading at an ultra-low price-to-earnings ratio of 5.5, and has a prospective dividend yield of 4.7%. Buying the shares might be tempting for investors considering a second income stream.For now, it might be best to sit tight and to watch before pouncing. But do your research and if you believe in its ability to bounce back after the current crisis, this could be a strong buy.Legal & GeneralUnusually for a FTSE 100 stock, Legal & General (LSE: LGEN) has offered recent investors growth potential and a chunky dividend yield.Over the past three years, the share price has grown by 22%.The financial giant is also offering a prospective dividend yield of 5.4%. This is much larger than the FTSE 100 average, which is closer to 4.3%.Despite this, the stock is trading at a price-to-earnings ratio of just 10. It’s now firmly in the bargain-buy category for me.I believe Legal & General is well-protected against the competition. It’s one of the UK’s leading pensions players and continues to dominate the market. In its half-yearly report, released in August 2019, it reported that operating profit was up 11% to £1bn.At the time, group chief executive Nigel Wilson stated that Legal & General has “a depth of management, track record and opportunities that mean all five of our businesses should contribute to future growth.” I tend to agree with him.To find a company on the FTSE 100 that has the potential for substantial growth, while offering a larger than average dividend, is unusual. I’d buy.Hopefully, opportunities like these might become even more frequent in a turbulent market! See all posts by T Sligo Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you.

The new prestigious building project, which has been named ‘Canal Houses,’ will be situated right next to ADEPT and Luplau & Poulsen’s other project, the ‘Harbour Houses’, which just started construction. The two projects will together form a full perimeter block. The project’s subdivisions into smaller buildings are underlined by using various brick bonds and tile colors. Hereby the facade concept from the Harbour Houses continues in a new interpretation, which contributes to unite the two houses. More images and architects’ description after the break.Save this picture!Courtesy of ADEPT + Luplau PoulsenThe Canal Houses will be divided into floors from four to twelve floors and will be organized in smaller volumes to break down the large scale of the 15.500 m2 house. The scale adaption will be further approached by dividing the residential towers into even smaller buildings, so the house appears as a group of difference houses stacked on top of each other. The small stacked houses will have various windows carvings, balcony types and brick facades. This emphasizes the intention to create a housing building that adapts to both the large scale of the harbour and the intimate scale of the marina. The project is explicitly based on this contract and tension between these two conditions. Save this picture!site planThe Canal Houses continues to work with the same depth as the house next door and the concept for the garden continues, creating a green courtyard that appears as a united entity making use of the same types of paving, plantings, vegetation as well as the overall design of path connection through and around the courtyard.

Sanctions harm reconstruction in Syria’s Homs province

first_imgCall to Action for International Days of Action Against Sanctions and Economic War – March 13 – 15, 2020, Go to sanctionskill.orgThe engineers in Homs planned the reconstruction according to the latest standards, said Barasi. They drew up a master plan for the years 2025-35. “The unfair sanctions against the Syrian people have a negative impact on the reconstruction process,” he said.Machines and tools that are needed cannot be imported. Barasi particularly emphasized the oil embargo: “We need oil for industry, transport, heating, reconstruction, hospitals, and also to produce electricity. This is an economic war being waged against Syria.”Whoever is from Homs and wants to return is welcome, said the Homs governor. Fourteen busloads, about 700 people, returned from Jarabulus on the border with Turkey. It was difficult for the people arriving from the north because Ankara [the seat of Turkish government] refused to cooperate with Damascus.Barasi said: “But from Lebanon, people are returning across the border with official permission and papers. This is regulated by a Syrian-Lebanese committee. We have the names and lists of people who want to return.” The Syrian and Jordanian governments have also worked together for returnees from Jordan.Nevertheless, there were still many reasons why people did not come back. They lacked money and transport facilities. Some of the terrorist groups would not allow people to leave, while other people were stopped by the international troops in the region.“We strongly believe that all Syrians should return home,” said Barasi. “And I repeat that we will provide the returnees with all the services that are needed. We will ourselves send buses to pick them up from the border.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this Published in Junge Welt, Dec. 16. Translation by John Catalinotto.According to Gov. Talal Barasi, about half a million people fled from Homs province, the largest in Syria, during the war. Some 2.3 million people had lived in Homs before the war, Barasi explained in an interview with Junge Welt. Of these, about 500,000 people, or 100,000 families, had left the province.About 40 percent had returned, both internally displaced people and people who had sought protection in Lebanon. The responsibility of the provincial and central government is to create the conditions for their return and to reestablish public services. The government is repairing water reservoirs, roads and schools, but sanctions are preventing Syria from obtaining necessary building materials.last_img read more

Men’s golf looks to build off last season’s success
