XLMedia to reduce headcount in strategic overhaul

first_img XLMedia to reduce headcount in strategic overhaul Tags: Online Gambling XLMedia has concluded a strategic review that will see the affiliate marketing business “streamline” a number of roles and functions across the business, resulting in annual cost savings of more than $5m (£4.1m/€4.6m).While the business did not provide any indication on how many roles would be cut – and how many staff let go – as part of this process, it said the restructuring reflected its focus on four short-term investment priorities.This will see XLMedia enhance its operating model to support future growth, as well as using data and programmatic learning to improve customer experience. It will also look to expand its US sports and personal finance businesses by investing in infrastructure and additional resource, supported by M&A, as well as expanding its existing verticals into new markets.These priorities in turn will see the business look to use more automation and outsourcing, and increase its editorial output.This restructuring has already seen Sarah Clark, who joined XLMedia in February as chief transformation officer, appointed chief operational officer. Clark will focus on developing the company’s strategy, evolving the shared services model and driving operational efficiencies.Meanwhile, Xen Lategan will serve as an interim technology consultant, with a remit of supporting the re-platforming of de-ranked websites and overseeing the re-organisation of the technology group.Some 107 XLMedia sites were demoted in Google’s search rankings in January of this year, with the affiliate group saying that the demotion was done manually.“I joined XLMedia with the clear intention to orientate the company towards a balanced portfolio of premium branded sites, in verticals and markets that deliver sustainable revenue growth,” chief executive Stuart Simms said of the restructuring.“To support this transformation, we have been working diligently to augment our leadership team and operating structure, as well as to right-size the resources required for our business to operate most efficiently.”XLMedia said the changes would result in more than $5.0m in annual savings, but added that the savings in 2020 would be largely offset by investments.“Our transformation plan continues to gather momentum, and I am pleased to share our progress with all our major stakeholders, alongside welcoming new talent to the business,” Simms said.The announcement also comes after XLMedia last month reported a 14.8% year-on-year revenue in 2019 to $79.7m, while an $81.4m impairment loss meant the group made an overall net loss for the year.

November has provided rare relief for UK share investors in what has proven a difficult year. The FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 are both up by healthy double-digit percentages since the turn of the month.The share market rally has ground to a halt in more recent days, though, as investors await more news on a Covid-19 vaccine. News of soaring coronavirus cases in parts of the globe have tempered appetite for UK shares too. But it hasn’t deterred me from continuing to invest. I’m confident that British stock markets will bounce back strongly during the 2020s!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…Taking a long-term viewIf history shows us anything it’s that stock markets always recover ground after the immediate impact of economic and political crises. This is why I didn’t worry and sell my stock holdings when the Covid-19 crisis hit. In fact I continued to buy UK shares in my Stocks and Shares ISA despite the threat of a painful and prolonged economic downturn.It’s important to remember that misfortune threw the kitchen sink at the global economy during the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. Yet economic conditions in Britain always recovered strongly within several years, corporate profits rebounded, and UK share prices bounced back as a consequence. Even world wars, pandemics, sovereign debt crises, banking sector meltdowns, and countless political upheavals have done nothing to stop the long-term ascent of global stock markets.Buying UK shares for the stock market recoveryUS share indexes have been quicker to bounce back from the Covid-19 crisis than their British counterparts. Just this week the Dow Jones soared smashed through the 30,000-point barrier for the first time. Meanwhile in Japan the Nikkei hit levels not seen for almost 30 years. It looks like UK share prices have some ground to make up, then.The FTSE 100 rose to levels not seen since early June earlier this month, around 6,400 points. But Britain’s blue-chip index has since settled back and still remains some 1,200 points lower than it was at the start of the year. It’s also some way off May 2018’s all-time closing peaks around 7,779 points.However, this recent underperformance is encouraging to long-term investors like me. It means I can continue to buy quality UK share at knock-down prices. And it leaves scope for a whopping rebound when investor confidence does recover in the weeks and months ahead.Make no mistake: investor appetite for UK shares will recover as news flow surrounding Covid-19 improves and economic optimism flows back. And those that buy stocks today can make a killing when they rocket back in price. Remember that the FTSE 100 more than doubled in value in the nine years following the 2008–09 stock market crash. And the number of Stocks and Shares ISA millionaires soared as a result.center_img Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares 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.

David Barnes nice prop try against London Irish

first_imgTuesday Feb 16, 2010 David Barnes nice prop try against London Irish Following on from a great prop try scored by an Under 20 player a few days back, today we have a clip of an older campaigner showing that it’s not just the young, speedy, new age props of the new generation that can finish off a try in style.Bath prop David Barnes scored this great try against London Irish on the weekend as his side romped to a 35-22 win over the Exiles in the Guinness Premiership, leaving them without a win in their last six matches in all competitions.Tries were scored in the first half by Barnes, discarded England winger Matt Banahan, and Joe Maddock, who scored a second, bonus-point clinching try twelve minutes from full time. Remember that if you’d like to see those tries, and the rest of the highlights from this game and others in the Guinness Premiership, check out the Omnisport Player in the sidebar here. For a veteran player who’s used to hard graft his whole career, this was great reward for the many hours Barnes has put in. It was only his fifth try ever for Bath, but he finished like a champ, sprinting away and heading for beneath the posts. Great stuff.ADVERTISEMENT Time: 02:15 Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

State of emergency declared in 2 more states as Florence nears hurricane strength

first_imgABC News(NEW YORK) — The peak of hurricane season in the Atlantic Ocean is Sept. 10, and right on schedule, the Atlantic Basin has come to life with numerous areas of concern. Foremost among those is Tropical Storm Florence, which is expected to re-strengthen into a hurricane Sunday and looks increasingly likely to hit the East Coast.Tropical Storm Florence has sustained winds of 70 mph Saturday evening as it is located 810 miles southeast of Bermuda. The storm is moving west at 5 mph.Florence is still a tropical storm, but is expected to become a hurricane by Sunday, and a major hurricane again on Monday.The storm is forecast to move generally in a westward direction over the coming days, with an increase in forward speed during the early part of the week. On this path, Florence will track over the warm waters off the southeast U.S. coastline.As Florence moves west, the wind shear will decrease, allowing Florence to become more organized and intensify. There is a possibility of significant intensification in the early part of next week.A ridge of high pressure moving in from the central U.S. is expected to move toward the Northeast by midweek. This ridge of high pressure will cause a blocking pattern and steer Florence dangerously close to, or into, the East Coast of the U.S. by midweek. The forecast track shows Florence’s forecast path approaching the southeast U.S. coastline late next week.The risk of direct impact by Florence on the East Coast is rising. Most of the models are now showing Florence having a direct and major impact to the East Coast in the upcoming week. It is important to note that there is considerable uncertainty five days out, making it too soon to determine the magnitude and timing of potential major impacts to the East Coast.The immediate threat this weekend will be large swells and dangerous rip currents along the East Coast due to the storm.Helene forms, tropical depression targets CaribbeanTropical Storm Helene formed just west of Africa in the early morning hours of Saturday. Helene has winds of 45 mph, and is 330 miles from the Cabo Verde Islands. The storm is moving west at 13 mph.Helene is forecast to strengthen, with tropical storm conditions reaching the Cabo Verde Islands Saturday. Locally, up to 8 inches of rain is expected in the Cabo Verde Islands.Helene will likely become a hurricane next week.Moving closer to the Caribbean, Tropical Depression Nine has maximum sustained winds of 35 mph Saturday morning, and is currently 172 miles east of the Windward Islands. The system is moving west-northwest at 5 mph.The system is expected to move westward over the coming days, and will likely become a tropical storm later Saturday. The forecast track has the storm strengthening to a hurricane next week as is tracks west.It is too early to determine what, if any, impacts this system will have on the Caribbean. However, the system is worth watching as we get into next week as it nears the Lesser Antilles.Olivia approaching HawaiiThe Pacific Ocean is also lively this weekend.Hurricane Olivia had maximum sustained winds of 90 mph, and was approximately 1,370 miles east of Honolulu as of 11 p.m. local time.Olivia is expected to move west-northwest through Saturday, before turning more westward on Sunday. The storm will slowly weaken over the next few days.Olivia is expected to approach the main Hawaiian Islands early next week, but it is too early to determine the magnitude of the potential impacts.It is important to note that significant impacts are possible well away from the center of the storm, and that the track error can be quite large at day 5 and beyond.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.
