Ukraine B2B licensing: a boost for local players, an opportunity for foreigners

first_imgThe B2B licensing conditions do not limit the services providers in their business relations with clients. Different commercial models may be agreed, including revenue share.  Topics: Legal & compliance Online casino Compliance Legal Licensing Regulation Online sports betting AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter The license is granted for five years. The total license fees are about €54,000, payable annually in five equal tranches. Ukraine B2B licensing: a boost for local players, an opportunity for foreigners After the relaunch of the gambling market and issuance of several operating licences, Ukraine finally introduced the licensing conditions for service providers at the end of March. These businesses have a chance to get a newly licensed jurisdiction in their portfolio, strengthening their compliance stands. It is a particularly appealing opportunity given a continuing exodus of international operators from unregulated markets and unlicensed providers.  B2B license scope Independent development studios  License terms and fees  In contrast to tough requirements imposed on gambling operators, potential B2B licensees are benefiting from the low regulatory barriers.  Low regulatory barriers, access to local talent and low-cost set-up fees are the weapon of choice for Ukraine. Requirements On March 31, 2021, the Cabinet of Ministers in Ukraine approved the Licensing Conditions for B2B licences for gambling suppliers. Alina Plyushch (pictured), head of the gambling desk of law firm Sayenko Kharenko explains why the Ukrainian B2B regime may be an attractive option for international brands and local IT suppliers. 5th May 2021 | By Daniel O’Boyle Although the term is defined vaguely, it includes a wide range of software, including random number generators, live-streaming products, odds services and online systems for gambling operators, among other things. No particular requirements for share capital or number of employees exist, however.center_img Now international operators may seek to establish a separate B2B provider in Ukraine to support their groups’ needs, cutting down their compliance risks and accessing local talents directly. Content providers such as live-casino streaming services and games development studios may become a more interesting and reliable party for the clients buying their services by obtaining a local licence. Beyond that, foreign investment funds and private equity investors consider licensed studios as better targets for investment and strengthening their portfolios. The Commission for the Regulation of Gambling and Lotteries in Ukraine (KRAIL), the country’s regulator, is on the prowl for attractive businesses from a thriving local industry of software development, leveraging the country’s strong reputation as an international IT hub. With a rather inexpensive license (with an annual fee of EUR 10,800) the government hopes to issue two dozen B2B licenses in 2021.  Who may benefit from the new licensing regime? International sportsbooks and online casinos operators In addition, the regulator wishes to see an “impeccable business reputation” of the top management (CEO, CFO), shareholders, and UBOs, meaning that these people have clear files and are not subject to Ukrainian/international sanctions. Licensing A B2B license allows Ukraine-based companies to provide gambling software -that is,  any product used to conduct games of chance – to resident and foreign gambling operators.  Companies eligible for B2B licenses shall be legal entities registered in Ukraine and shall not: be controlled by Russian residents, have Russian residents as UBOs, have individual shareholders who are also considered to be Russian residents, hold any stake in a Russian business or have corporate shareholders registered in North Korea or Iran. Alina Plyushch Email Address It is a common practice for international operators to engage qualified Ukrainian staff to develop new products and maintain existing operations. Due to the unclear regulation of these services, international operators had to rely on a complicated network of outsourcing and outstaffing agreements, combined with Ukrainian-based IT outsourcing companies.  Regions: Ukraine IT outsourcing businesses A licensed B2B provider may supply its software to both Ukrainian gambling operators and non-resident entities holding gambling licenses in other jurisdictions. However, foreign B2B providers are not required to get Ukrainian licenses to supply their products to Ukrainian operators.last_img read more

Scanning the markets for UK shares to buy now, below are two I’d consider buying.I explain why I like the shares. I also mention why I’d act now on these possible investments, rather than wait.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…A global giantWhen hunting for shares to buy, I often draw inspiration from investing guru Warren Buffett.From its collection of well-known brands to its strong cash generation, Unilever (LSE: ULVR) demonstrates many of the characteristics of the types of business Buffett loves to own. In fact he tried to buy the company in 2017. That bid valued the company at around £115bn.Today, Unilever’s market cap is under £107bn. In other words, I can buy a slice of the company on the stock market cheaper than Buffett offered to pay four years ago!Since then, not everything has gone in the company’s favour. Its international exposure means sterling weakness can work against it. While the pandemic has seen some cleaning brands boom, Unilever’s diversified portfolio means it has seen less consistent growth. Its home care divisional revenue actually slipped 0.6% last year, for example.Long-term prospectsSo why would I choose these as UK shares to buy now for my portfolio? I think the broad mix of brands at different price levels will help the company continue to ride the wave of economic growth in markets like China and Indonesia.The shares have only added 3% in the past year. They’re more than 15% down from where they stood in October before vaccines were approved.I think that sell-off has been overdone. Unilever’s prospects look bright to me regardless of how or when the pandemic dies out.I’d pick these UK shares to buy nowI’d also consider Victrex (LSE: VCT). This chemicals producer has a business moat thanks to its specialist technology. For example, its range of “PEEK” polymers is the market leader and has applications across a range of industries. The manufacturer’s output has global appeal, which explains why Victrex exports 98% of all production.Last month, it reported first-quarter results. Revenue was up 1% on the prior year.The company’s highly cash generative business model means it doesn’t carry any long-term debt. In fact, it had £84m of net cash at the end of the year. Some of that is ringfenced for expansion in China. The company plans to spend heavily this year on facility construction there. That costs money, although hopefully it will aid future growth.Although 2021 has started well, the company warned it still expects to turn in a weaker performance in the first half overall than it managed last year. That may help to explain the 11% drop in the share price so far this year. Any further demand drops could dent the share price more.The current price-to-earnings ratio of 33 still looks high to me. But the company has a sustainable competitive advantage and diverse end markets. Longer term, the shares are up 9% over the past year.That’s why I see them as UK shares to buy now. The recent share price drop has created a more agreeable entry point to what I see as a quality buy-and-hold pick.

Pandemic to upend Holy Week, Easter liturgies as Presiding Bishop…

Curry, in his letter to the church, alluded to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s recommendation against gatherings of more than 50 people for the next eight weeks, and the White House urged even smaller gatherings of 10 or fewer for the next two weeks.Episcopal News Service’s complete coronavirus coverage can be found here.The Episcopal Church’s online resource page for coronavirus response is here.After voicing his support last week for bishops who move to cancel in-person worship services, Curry reaffirmed and strengthened that encouragement, as well as efforts underway to offer Episcopalians ways of worshipping together online.“It is important to emphasize that suspension of in-person gatherings is not a suspension of worship. I very much encourage and support online worship,” Curry said.Presiding Bishop Michael Curry preaches during Washington National Cathedral’s livestreamed Eucharist on March 15, 2020. Photo: Washington National CathedralThe presiding bishop’s latest statements, coupled with the myriad directives and pastoral letters issued over the past several days by bishops across the church’s 111 dioceses and mission areas, underscore how the coronavirus outbreak and efforts to slow its spread have thoroughly upended normal parish life and the liturgical practices that Episcopalians previously took for granted.Public health officials stress that until a vaccine is developed and available – possibly not for another 12 to 18 months – larger gatherings could accelerate transmission of the coronavirus at a pace that would overload hospitals, as has happened in Italy. Many Episcopal bishops already had asked congregations in their dioceses to cancel in-person worship services starting last weekend, from Washington, D.C., to San Francisco, California. More bishops followed suit starting this week.Fond du Lac Bishop Matthew Gunter was among those bishops who last week allowed his congregations to proceed with worship in their churches, but he advised precautions, such as spreading out in the pews, avoiding contact at the Peace, and refraining from intinction, the dipping of the bread in the wine.The Rev. Chris Arnold preaches at Trinity Episcopal Church in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, where he is rector. Photo: Trinity Episcopal Church, via FacebookOn March 15, the Rev. Chris Arnold, rector of Trinity Episcopal Church in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, stood face to face with his congregation for what he suspected would be the last time for a while. In his sermon, Arnold didn’t talk at all about the lectionary readings. He talked about the coronavirus.“What I was hoping to do was introduce people to the range of possibilities and leave them with some word of hope,” Arnold told Episcopal News Service.The next day, on March 16, Gunter responded to the worsening outbreak by calling on Trinity and the diocese’s other congregations to stop offering worship services in their churches. Instead, Gunter encouraged Episcopalians in the northeastern Wisconsin diocese to view the livestreams of services at Grace Episcopal Church in Sheboygan, St. Thomas Episcopal Church in Menasha or Intercession-Beloved Community in Stevens Point.It’s “like the ultimate Lent,” Arnold said after Gunter’s announcement. “What greater fast is there than a fast from the Eucharist?”The thought of how to celebrate Holy Week and Easter, however, clearly troubles him.“I have no idea what we can do as a church for Easter. I don’t know what the answer to that is,” Arnold said. “Somehow, the whole church will find a way to make this experience the Easter story.”The Rev. Gillian Barr has been of similar mind in considering what this moment means for her congregation at Calvary Episcopal Church in Stonington, Connecticut.“I think that, this Lent, we will be walking the Way of the Cross and the way of the Holy Week more profoundly than we have in a long time, as the culture and as the congregations,” Barr said in a phone interview.Connecticut Bishop Ian Douglas had strongly encouraged congregations to cancel services in a March 15 message, while citing his diocese’s canons that leave final decisions to local leaders. Barr and the Calvary vestry agreed March 14 in the evening that cancellation was warranted and began notifying the 100 or so parishioners who typically worship at the church’s two Sunday services.The Episcopal Cathedral of St. Paul is one of four Christian congregations in downtown Des Moines, Iowa, that have organized a Way of the Cross procession each year for more than a decade. Photo: William J. GentschOn March 15, with one of the wardens standing outside the church turning people away, Barr was inside with a lector and an intercessor during the 8 a.m. and 10 a.m. services, which were broadcast by a preexisting conference call setup. On most Sunday mornings, you can count on one hand the number of parishioners who listen to the service by phone, but this morning, 29 people called in. The response was largely positive.“A lovely surprise,” parishioner Patty Copp said in an email that Barr shared with ENS. “I pictured myself in my favorite pew, had my old Prayer Book on my lap and joined in the service. … I felt amazingly complete at the close of the Service!”But Barr also is bracing herself for a worst-case scenario, including the possibility that some of her parishioners may succumb to COVID-19 before the congregation is able to gather again in person.“I think that will shape what Holy Week and Easter look like,” Barr said. Even before then, “we’re going to see some Good Fridays.”The Rev. Scott Gunn, executive director of Forward Movement, was scheduled to preach March 15 at Calvary Episcopal Church in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, but he decided to cancel his trip in response to the developments last week in the coronavirus’s spread. Calvary, like many other congregations, chose to cancel its in-person worship services.And while the NCAA’s March Madness basketball tournament has been canceled, Forward Movement’s Lent Madness, featuring a bracket of saints, is still going strong. It offers a bit of mirth to take Episcopalians’ minds off the bad news for a little while, said Gunn, who coordinates Lent Madness with the Rev. Tim Schenck, rector of St. John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in Hingham, Massachusetts.But there’s no avoiding the fact that this Lent will be like none other.“I think it’s going to be a very different Holy Week and Easter than probably any of us have ever experienced,” Gunn said, noting the growing realization across the church that the biggest Sunday on the liturgical calendar likely will pass this year with empty pews. “I think, if anything, there’s an opportunity in this because, when you pare away all of the trappings and also all of the traditions and customs, maybe we’re going to have no choice but to focus on what’s really important about the celebration of Holy Week.”The Rev. Chantal McKinney leads worshippers from Christ’s Beloved Community in an outdoor Good Friday procession in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. Photo: Christ’s Beloved CommunityThe soaring hymns? The flowers in bloom on the altar? The grand Easter Sunday processions? “I really hope we get to do that in 2021,” Gunn said. But even without those trappings, “we still are left with the most amazing story in history, and nothing can take that away.”Arnold, the Oshkosh rector, also is trying to put this year’s Holy Week and Easter in perspective. “The first Easter, Jesus slips out of the tomb, and it’s not like there’s a big crowd there celebrating. He rises from the dead almost unnoticed.”Whether gathered together or connecting from a distance, Arnold is confident the church will find a way to celebrate the resurrection. Easter will happen.“Emotionally, as a priest and as a Christian, as a pastor of a congregation and as someone who loves the Eucharist, it’s going to be really hard,” Arnold said. “But I’m also a really strong believer that Christianity, it helps us to do hard things. … Hopefully, it’s meant to make us brave.”– David Paulsen is an editor and reporter for Episcopal News Service.

Chernobyl Children International launches €15 million campaign

first_img Irish-based charity Chernobyl Children International (CCI) has launched a fundraising campaign to raise €15 million. The campaign comes on the 25th anniversary of the Chernobyl disaster and the 20th anniversary of the founding of CCI. The occasion was marked by a special event this week in Dublin with the Irish prime minister and Foreign Minister.The new fundraising campaign is designed to fund the construction of 20 new foster homes in Belarus, 50 cardiac doctor missions, and the opening of a new daycare centre to help up to 60,000 rural Belarusians.CCI founder Adi Roche told the Irish Times that 98 per cent of their funding is from the public and this campaign will also depend on lots of small amounts from the public. Less than two years ago the charity said that it was in financial difficulty with a potential €500,000 shortfall in its annual budget of €2.5 million.www.chernobyl-international.com AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Chernobyl Children International launches €15 million campaign  27 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Howard Lake | 2 May 2011 | News Tagged with: Individual giving Ireland About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

National health and social care charity Sue Ryder is encouraging people to donate any unwanted clothes, books, jewellery, bric-a-brac or furniture including Christmas gifts to its 370 charity shops across the country.All money raised from the sale of donated items goes directly to support the charity to continue providing end of life and long-term care to people living with complex care and support needs at its hospices, neurological care centres and community-based services across the U.K.Helen Reynolds, donated Group Stock Manager at Sue Ryder, commented: “Often after the festive season, people decide to clear out their wardrobes to make space for new items bought during the sales season and to throw away what is no longer used. Every extra penny we are able to raise for Sue Ryder means extra help we can provide for people living with complex care and support needs”.eBay estimates £652 million is spent on unwanted gifts over the festive season.* A new survey for online classifieds website Gumtree.com found that every UK adult will have been given up to two presents they did not want this Christmas, each worth £48.41 on average.Helen added: “We are encouraging people to donate their unwanted gifts instead of hiding them at the back of their wardrobe or throwing them away. Sue Ryder provides end of life and long-term care to people living with conditions including cancer, stroke, Multiple Sclerosis and dementia. If we look at our hospices, for example, their services are free to the point of delivery. But we need to raise more than 60% in voluntary income to continue to provide those services for local communities. The extra money raised through our charity’s shops is a means to help the charity raise much needed funds”.To support Sue Ryder, people can simply drop off any unwanted items at any Sue Ryder shop – and are encouraged to ask to gift aid them to add an extra 25% to the total sale value of the goods. People can also become a gift aid member online and can find out where their local shop is by visiting www.sueryder.org or calling 0207 554 5900Sources: *Study conducted by TNS omnibus on behalf of eBay http://www.tns-ri.co.uk/_assets/files/16563_On_the_buses_email_pdf.pdf AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Charity calls for unwanted Christmas gifts to support its healthcare servicescenter_img Howard Lake | 15 January 2012 | News  9 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThislast_img read more

Pioneer Field Agronomist Ben Jacob says planting progress, though, has been limited in his area in West Central Indiana.“Some folks have gotten a jump on beans, but nobody is really hitting it too hard. There’s been just a little bit of corn in the ground, but mostly shaking equipment down and getting things ready to go. On the field work side of it, compared to the past couple of springs, it’s been a very nice window to get out. A lot of anhydrous went down last week, some tillage work, and a lot of burndown being sprayed.”As far as when farmers should be looking to get the planter in the field, Jacob says it’s not necessarily too soon to start, but you should exercise caution. After all, it’s only April 12th.“Let’s exercise as much caution as we can. The forecast, as far as precipitation, looks really good. I know that when we get to be chomping at the bit, we plant that first field and maybe it’s just a little bit too heavy and you can cause some compaction. But it’s kind of a chain reaction. You get to the first field and it’s just a touch heavy and that ends up following you into the season. If we’re not careful, we end up causing a bunch of compaction issues that could have been avoided by just having a little bit of patience.”Tune in to my full interview with Pioneer Field Agronomist Ben Jacob below as he discusses planting considerations and also prioritizing fieldwork.Audio Playerhttps://hoosieragtoday.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/04/ben-jacob-041221.mp300:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.
