The unregulated markets are often this way because of religious based laws. Malaysia is an example where the law makes gambling illegal, yet Malaysia has Genting and casinos.The USA made online gambling illegal overnight. Religious lobbies backed by wealth from land-based casinos outlawed online gambling overnight.Yes, it can happen overnight.But in Malaysia it is already illegal.

which means the share price should reflect this whitening of the revenues

Surely what is predictable Nod is that unregulated markets will get regulated, and some quite suddenly. So revenue in regulated markets may be lower margin but is better quality. And strong regulated players may be able to hoover up less able competitors as unregulated markets diminish?

With the tightening regulations in regulated markets, the unregulated markets are looking more lucrative and, dare I say, more predictable.

The proposed legislation in Italy doesn't seem too onerous. They are to protect youth and to put some limits on electronic gambling such as betting terminals. There are many countries facing the same issues resulting from the oversupply, overuse and high visibility of gaming machines. "Experts in the field were quick to point out that this move has the potential to cripple the field and significantly reduce the revenue it is able to generate from gambling operation. The new policy framework could steer the industry in a different and unwanted direction since many gambling operators rely on their slot machines offerings. As it is specified in the proposed draft this kind of gaming devices will have to be installed and operating only at specified locations.What should be taken into account is that bars and various distributors are not among them. Another new addition to the field according to this draft bill which could become a reality if it receives a nod is related to sensitive locations in any given city. Some of those are high schools as well as youth centers which witness a constant flow of young and easily impressionable people. Operators are already concerned by the information issued."

Good news. Faster than I expected. "Playtech is pleased to announce that it has received formal consent to the Transaction from Agenzia delle Dogane e dei Monopoli, the Italian gaming regulatory authority."

Agree. So much for so called independent renumeration committees- whose salaries are paid by the Board, including executive directors. Not independent at all. Whatever the metrics were based on to assess bonuses, clearly deeply flawed.

I suspect the institutions will all want a higher share price for their investors. The share price is down 20% and at the same level as three years ago.I firmly believe that bonuses should be directly related to the share price over the period and nothing else.If the value of the business has declined 20% over the year it's hard to justify an INCREASE in bonus of 78%It's hard to justify a bonus at the SAME level as last year based on the annual performance.

A good article in LeapRate explaining the shareholder revolt in detail. It seems to be a result of changes in the major shareholders over the past year. https://www.leaprate.com/forex/executives/playtech-shareholders-reject-ceo-directors-pay-policy-annual-meeting/ extract Demonstrating the effect of all the bonuses, in 2017 CEO Mor Weizer had a base salary of €950,000, but ended up with total comp of several times that, or €4.2 million. CFO Andrew Smith’s base salary of €385,000 became more than €1.1 million in total comp. Apparently, the company’s large institutional shareholders were not very happy with Mr. Weizer’s compensation moving up by 79% from €2.3 million in 2016 to €4.2 million in 2017, in a year which as noted wasn’t a banner year for results.

Yes, SCH could do it, if PTEC wanted to outsource the customer management processes and data.PTECs close relationship with SCH could hamper PTECs growth. It probably has already by not developing this piece of the core business.I have concerns about this relationship when it comes to the USA, as Sagi is on their blacklist.I assume GVC does their own payment processing.

"The Gambling Commission will toughen up protections around online gambling including stronger age verification rules and proposals to require operators to set limits on consumers' spending until affordability checks have been conducted."These changes would require customer registration and tracking of spend. Step forward PTEC.If they implemented customer registration and tracking they would not need to impose constraints across all customers, only the problem gamblers.

True - IF it is delayed by 2 years it would be a boon for PTEC. With this uncertainty out of the way things can get back to an even keel Hmmm, looks tempting although Asia needs more research

The shareholder revolt at the AGM is getting a lot press today. It does look like snouts in the trough while shareholders are losing money - not a good look for PTEC to give Mor a 78% pay rise alongside a profit warning.See FT :https://www.ft.com/content/e23a4fe6-5923-11e8-bdb7-f6677d2e1ce8

Sagi owns 6.3%Worse, he is still a paid advisor. That will not help, regardless of the fee. "Mr Teddy Sagi, the ultimate beneficiary of Brickington, provides advisory services to the Group for a total annual consideration of €1."

A (now minority) holding? Not fully up on it. Look for Brickington. That's his holding co.
