|Yes, GVC are usually pretty short time wise in between the announcement and payment date going from their previous quarterly payment history|
|Yes, seems I was wrong, the statement says:
"the Group intends to pay a special dividend of 10 euro cents per share in February 2017 in respect of the 2016 financial year. An announcement containing further details of the proposed special dividend, including record and payment dates, will be made in due course."
So, as they'll need to give notice of the record date in good time, I don't think the announcement will be that far away now, especially with the Christmas break looming.|
|Not that I'm aware of, fizzypop, but happy to be corrected. I know there is sometimes only a week between dividend announcement & payments then going ex-div.|
|GVC have stated the payment date as Feb 2017 so I assume the ex-divi date as the usual 3 wks prior which could be mid Jan so the announcement could well be a week or two away. Is there a statutory period mandatory between notice of the record date and the actual record date?|
|Woodhawk - Have we got an actual payment date yet? As far as I was aware we had only been informed that it would be "in February 2017 in respect of the 2016 financial year" - HTTP://www.investegate.co.uk/gvc-holdings-plc--gvc-/rns/special-dividend-and-trading-update/201611030700081916O/
If so, plenty of time yet as payment might not be until end Feb?|
|Looks like there's a pretty strong floor being put under this share in the 620-630p region.
I'm surprised that we've not yet had an announcement of the record date for the soon forthcoming special divi. As we are only a little over month from the actual payment date, I assume it will be very short notice. This may serve to clarify things, and I think this might be the catalyst for a substantial move higher? Announcement next week?|
Like talking to a brick wall here. Holders think they are totally immune to sentiment and believe they are the owners of a crystal ball.
The point of consumption tax will also hit the bottom line harder thsn expected.|
|Gary - Even though GVC do not have any bricks and mortar betting shops this will most probably show gambling in a bad light and therefore negatively effect the GVC share price.
Ladbrokes/Coral and William Hills share price goes down and therefore so will GVC´s, especially when in the past there have been romours of tie ups between GVC and bricks and mortar betting shops such as Willaim Hills.|
|What as this got to do with GVC ?|
|I don't see how reducing the number of machines per shop helps.
People just get a stool and sit at one machine from what I've seen.|
|Fest - OK, I would reduce the minimum per number to 10p with a maximum of say 50p, with a maximum stake per spin of say £5.|
|Logan, it's 25p minimum per number, £13.75 maximum on a single number. Hence it prevents you from winning more than £500 on a single turn.|
|Fest - I can see of no reason why for a relatively small about of money, less then £5 one can´t cover all the numbers on roulette if one is able to put say 10p on a number.
As I do not go into betting shops I do not know how much one has to put on a number.|
|Professor David Nutt, of Imperial College London, said: ‘No one is going to get addicted from placing a bet on the Grand National once a year, "but on these machines you can place 50 bets an hour."|
|£100 limit can't happen, how is a punter supposed to win his money back?£2 per spin can't happen, you'll hardly cover any of your numbers on roulette.£10 to £20 a spin is reasonable, and it would probably have helped me with the addiction that I myself had to those machines, possibly saving me well over £150k|
|Sorry, I should have said clamping down on them.
The push behind this is I think problems seen by MPs in their surgeries. Basically they are causing debt. So I think they will come down strongly.|
They are talking of reducing the maximum that can be spent on any one throw of the dice/spin of the wheel, from £100 down to £2!! Even if it turns out only to be limited to the industry predicted level of £10, that will result in a massive reduction in their profits.|
|Fest - I hear vastly reducing the current £100 limit on the machines and only allowing 2 machines per shop which is going to hurt Ladbrokes/Coral the most as they have by far the most bricks and mortar outlets, around 50% more then Hills do.|
|They're not getting rid of them, there'll be some fudge by way of new limits, discretionary banning of 'problem' customers, grants for organisations that help with addicts etc.The Govt won't want to turn off this tax revenue fountain!In the meantime, it's time for any shorters to rush for the exits.There's one small door, and many racing for it, I hope Slippy doesn't get hurt in the crush.|
|I think it's positive for gvc.
These machines have been getting the gambling industry a bad press, so getting rid of them is a good thing for companies like gvc who aren't reliant on them.|
|You would have thought that funds that have an exposure to the secotor would be switching from LADB and WMH to the online companies and give us a boost!|
|I am reading as they have so many bricks and mortar betting shops that Ladbrokes/Coral are going to be hit hard if the legislation on Fixed Betting Machines comes in as tough as they say it may, will completely wipe of their profits, won´t be good for Hills either, however will not effect GVC at all.|
