Hmmm, Penrose is following me around.To recap the background I recently posted on here:The Playtech execs know Penrose well. PTEC and SPO jointly tried to acquire US business SG Racing - which is now Sportech's main business. PTEC put two execs on Sportech's Board, took a 10% stake in SPO and offered funds for the deal. The US regulators eventually allowed SPO to acquire the SGR business but not with PTEC involved.PTEC were obviously keen to acquire SGR, which is now Sportech Racing. Perhaps PTEC are interested in partnering with SPO in the USA.https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/playtech-bets-on-gambling-big-shot-ian-penrose-wqcgx2nmg

Ian Penrose is forecast join playtech soon, then be groomed to be chairman. If you thought playtech had problems last week, this guy penrose will make them look like the best days of your life, the man is a walking disaster, a horror story. He drove Arena leisure to 2.63p then with umpteen rights issues all the way down to 15p. He and Trevor Hemmings are very wealthy, does that give you a clue? Make your vote count and vote against Penrose.

Absolutely no idea but it's hurting my spread position. I can only think it is being driven down before results. Spread is hurting but added more to my equity position. Great value at these prices. As long as the Asia situation does not worsen Trade Tech and Saitech will plug the gap.Be greedy when others are fearful.

It feels that way MD, i think this could fairly quickly put on 50-100p and all the chat about them falls away and they find a normal trading range....good share for me so far as in at around 500p recently.

I understand their problems in unregulated markets and why they are strategically shifting into regulated. But I also expect that if they can break into usa, we will not be rangebound around 550' that is all.

I was just re-reading the aborted attempts in 2015 to acquire Plus500 and Ava Trade. These were blocked by the UK FCA and the Central Bank of Ireland respectively. They highlight the difficulty PTEC has on its home turf let alone in the USA?

Shaker, the reason we are at 550 is because of uncertainty around China and Malaysia rather than the USA. This happens every few years because our licensees are operating in locations where online gambling is illegal and the authorities clamp down every so often. It's a high risk game which was usually factored into PTECs share price.This is why PTEC has focused on regulated markets and acquired Snaitech to grow operations across Europe.

Spain is a focus for Snaitech, which is now a significant slice of our business.https://www.sbcnews.co.uk/featurednews/2018/07/24/vamos-snaitech-makes-first-international-play-in-spain/In its update, Snaitech governance details that it will seek to launch its Betsmart solution, aiming to revamp Spanish retail betting with best-in-class provisions for market trading, customer rewards, in-play pricing, data gathering and payment solutions.The Italian firm, details that it expects to have a Spanish retail presence by the end of Summer 2018.'International expansion is the next challenge for our company' declares Snaitech Group CEO Fabio Schiavolin."In 2018, the Snaitech universe has evolved beyond Italy, and we are opening our horizons starting with Iberia. The partnership with Apuestas de Espana, marks our first international steps.""Following July, we want to spread more and more our experience on the gaming sector in the Spanish market with the expansion in different Communities".

surely teddi can find a way of disappearing from safecharge and playtech while still benefitting from subsequent business done in usa. not beyond the ken of israeli man.. if that is the real issue. he doesnt want to see ptec rangebound in the 550,s when it should be double imo.

The issue with Playtech in the USA comes down to Teddy Sagi's criminal record and 9-month jail time for insider trading and bribery. The USA is very strict regarding certain crimes and involvement in financial transactions. Sagi still owns 6% of Playtech and has been receiving annual payments as a consultant, so his involvement in PTEC has not gone away. Sagi made his initial wealth in online porn before progressing to online gambling. These are not popular businesses in the USA Bible Belt. Sagi is also a 68% owner of Safecharge which processes all the financial payments for PTEC. The US regulators attitude towards overseas online gambling firms was dire, because many breached US Laws - initially the Wire ACT and later the UIGEA. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unlawful_Internet_Gambling_Enforcement_Act_of_2006 Playtech's acceptance in the USA was tested in 2010 by way of an acquisition by UK-based Sportech of a US company SG Racing, which runs horse racing bets across the USA. Playtech took a 10% stake in Sportech, part financed the acquisition and took two seats on the Sportech Board. The US regulators would not approve Sportech's acquisition with PTEC involved. It went on for a long time and eventually was only approved after PTEC sold its 10% holding in Sportech, resigned from the Sportech Board, and other funding arrangements were presented without PTEC involvement. As far as I know, PTEC has not since tested whether the USA regulators would be more tolerant today. I suspect they would not. Which is probably why PTEC has not been able to openly involve itself in the new US sports betting opportunities. It's possible their software is in use without regulators knowing.

US market appears lost though - I hope they are planning something at least. Isn't William Hill penetrating the USA? Playtech powers its FOBT terminals in the UK and some of its online offering - can't see why they can't use their expertise in the states as well....

Trent, yes Plus holding has gone up 2.5 times just in the past 12 months.Re the USA ... PTEC is on the bad boys list and cannot operate in the USA. That's why they had to find other markets.

PLUS500 flying - that was a very strong investment (pity they failed to buy it outright at the time). Still think the PTEC fall is overdone. Question is whether they can fight it out in China. US market appears lost though - I hope they are planning something at least.

Snaitech enters Spain as Playtech deal nears completion 26 July 2018 Snaitech managing director Fabio Schiavolin is targeting a swift rollout of the company’s ‘Smart Technology’ offering across Spain “in the coming months” after securing a licence to make its first move outside its home market of Italy. Snaitech is set to have a retail betting presence in Spain through the BetSmart platform by the end of this summer after linking up with operator Apuestas de España to launch Apuestas by Snai in the country. Snaitech will ultimately offer various online and mobile app sports betting products, as well as betting terminals and payment processing services. http://www.igamingbusiness.com/news/snaitech-enters-spain-playtech-deal-nears-completion
