Philip Bowcock – William Hill sees international growth as the fix for potential UK downturns

first_img Submit Share UKGC launches fourth National Lottery licence competition August 28, 2020 Share Related Articles Flutter moves to refine merger benefits against 2020 trading realities August 27, 2020 StumbleUpon SBC Magazine Issue 10: Kaizen Gaming rebrand and focus for William Hill CEO August 25, 2020 Updating investors on William Hill Plc Trading, Group CEO Philip Bowcock has detailed that the  FTSE bookmaker will move to prioritise expansion within overseas markets in an attempt to combat any potential growth impacts felt from forthcoming UK regulatory increases.William Hill recorded positive results for its 17-week trading period to 24 October, however, Bowcock believes further international growth will plug any gaps in UK revenue triggered by the forthcoming fixed-odds betting terminal (FOBT) restrictions.He said: “We are still predominantly UK-based with UK revenues, and if you think that regulation is only going in one direction then by default you need to start thinking about diversification outside the UK.”The statement also detailed strong US growth, driven by mobile growth, a factor that William Hill will look to build on in 2018. The company is further “looking forward to” the impending Supreme Court decision relating to the relaxing of the laws surrounding sports betting, and a positive result will inevitably further the plans for an extended international footprint.In terms of having the right personnel in place to oversee this growth and transition, as group leader Bowcock speaks with confidence with regards to William Hill’s new executive team and governance, describing leadership as “well set” to deliver on corporate goals, as “the evidence of the last twelve months has proven that”.The Australia ProblemAs detailed in the Q3 trading statement, there was a 5% drop in amounts wagered in Australia – a blight on an otherwise positive quarterly update. Bowcock highlighted the ban on bookmakers offering credit to customers, which came into place at the end of April, as the primary factor for the decline. The Point of Consumption (POC) Tax has also been in place in the state of South Australia since July, and Bowcock notes that William Hill are “working on the assumption” that this will become a nationwide tax by 2019. With that in mind, he describes how the company is “being very careful about investment at this time”, and is deploying a short-term mindset when dealing with this market. Nevertheless, Bowcock dismissed any idea of William Hill abandoning the Australian market completely, noting that “they bet more than anyone else, and that makes it a very interesting place to be”. He summarised by saying “we are comfortable with where we are and we continue to aim to grow”.last_img read more


Warriors’ Andre Iguodala offered Lakers’ rookie Brandon Ingram perspective on bench role

first_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error After all, Iguodala accepted a bench role for the sake of winning an NBA championship after already cementing his resumé as an All-Star and U.S. Olympic gold medalist. Iguodala maintained “it wasn’t that hard” to accept a bench role with the Warriors under those circumstances. Yet, he revealed to Walton the complexity of his internal feelings.“‘Luke, I dreaded that,’” Iguodala said. “‘But I’ll give the guy some words of wisdom so he’ll play hard for you.’”Iguodala also sounded open toward providing Ingram advice for another reason.“I’m a fan of the kid. It’s easy, especially when you got a guy that’s willing to take some advice. You want the best for him,” Iguodala said. “Anybody else, I’m like ‘No man.’ I’m not giving (feedback) to these young kids these days. They don’t listen.”Ingram did, though. “It’s him buying into a role,” Ingram said of Iguodala. “He embraces it and all he cares about is winning.” Ingram called the offseason call with Iguodala “really brief.” Ingram added that he did not ask Iguodala specifically about coming off the bench. Yet, their talk still centered on how to thrive on a loaded depth chart.“‘You’re good,’” Iguodala told Ingram. “‘You’re so far ahead of where you think. But keep having that mindset.’”Iguodala later praised Ingram’s humble demeanor and contended that “offensively, he’s light years ahead of me.” Iguodala then predicted the “sky is the limit” for Ingram before calling on him to become more assertive without playing selfishly. Meanwhile, Ingram has admired Iguodala’s on-ball defense and ability to create deflections, qualities that earned him the 2015 Finals MVP. “I’m still learning how I can affect the game in different ways,” Ingram said. “Offensively, I think it will become easier for me with coming into the lanes and picking my spots. But defensively, I’m doing really well.” Ingram posted a career-high 16 points on 6-of-12 shooting, three rebounds and three turnovers in his first NBA start on Wednesday against Golden State. Before that, the Lakers liked how Ingram handled his bench role without complaint. His workload also gradually increased in ball handling, posting up, defending and finishing games.That growth can be partly traced back to Ingram’s phone call with Iguodala. “The NBA is a crazy world, especially when you’re as young as some of these young guys are,” Walton said. “It’s important to have relationships with some older vets that have been around.”center_img LOS ANGELES >> As Lakers forward Brandon Ingram ran up and down the court during Summer League play, plenty of focus centered on his physical readiness. Behind the scenes, Lakers coach Luke Walton worked on something else to ensure Ingram’s foundation became sturdy. When Walton talked with Golden State forward Andre Iguodala in Las Vegas, their conversation went beyond reminiscing about playing together at the University of Arizona, or Walton serving as an assistant at Golden State the previous two years. Mindful that he planned to bring Ingram off the bench to start his rookie season, Walton talked with Iguodala about offering perspective to the Lakers’ No. 2 pick. “Andre is a one of the smarter players I’ve been around,” Walton said before the Lakers hosted the Warriors on Friday at Staples Center. “He cares about the game of basketball and he does things the right way. I felt that Brandon could learn a lot from him.”last_img read more
