Tuesday 11 January 2011 7:38 pm POORLY performing London-listed hedge funds face the axe in coming months as shareholders prepare to vote on whether to close them down. Up to 11 funds, nearly half of the 28 listed, face a continuation vote as their share prices have traded at “persistently wide” discounts to net asset value, Numis analysts said yesterday.And shareholders that received net asset value (NAV) returns of just over five per cent in 2010, compared with above ten per cent in 2009, are increasingly withdrawing capital and demanding that boards tackle discounts or wind up.Funds have “failed to deliver” the expected capital protection and steady returns since 2008, researcher Ewan Lovett-Turner said. “We believe some investors are losing patience and are now less willing to support continuation,” he said. Both Alternative Investment Strategies, with £250m net assets, and Cazenove Absolute Equity with £66m have triggered votes after failing to improve on 17 and 11 per cent discounts over the past year, while Saltus European Debt now trades at a 22 per cent discount.

Regions: Europe Nordics Denmark Denmark’s regulated gambling market reported declines in gross gaming revenue across a number of core verticals, though a strong performance from the online casino vertical allowed the market to post year-on-year growth for 2019. AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter 18th February 2020 | By contenteditor Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Topics: Casino & games Finance Sports betting Slots Danish gaming market growth driven by online casino in 2019 Tags: Mobile Online Gambling OTB and Betting Shops Slot Machines Email Address Casino & games Denmark’s regulated gambling market reported declines in gross gaming revenue across a number of core verticals, though a strong performance from the online casino vertical allowed the market to post year-on-year growth for 2019.Total revenue amounted to DKK6.57bn (£732.5m/€879.0m/$951.9m) up 1.8% from 2018, of which sports betting accounted for DKK2.50bn, or 38.1% of the total. However, this represented a 1.0% decline from 2018, according to the figures from Danish regulator Spillemyndigheden.After opening the year with a 10.4% hike in revenue, the vertical posted three consecutive quarters of revenue decline, culminating in a 6.5% drop in Q4.Sports betting in Denmark has become an increasingly digital activity, with land-based betting accounting for just 33.6% of GGR. Should mobile betting continue to grow, it will account for more than 50% of total revenue in 2020, having reached 49.7% in 2019, with desktop betting making up the remaining 16.7%.Online casino, which saw GGR rise 8.1% to DKK2.33bn, was the only vertical to post a year-on-year increase in revenue for the year. Revenue rose in each quarter of 2019, with Q2’s 18.0% jump being the standout.Slots dominated the vertical, accounting for 72.7% of revenue, far ahead of second-placed roulette, on 10.4%, with blackjack coming in third on 8.3% of online casino’s total. Bingo, which was legalised in the first quarter of 2018, accounted for DKK94.9m in 2019.Gaming machines, on the other hand, saw revenue fall 2.2% to DKK1.38bn, the largest year-on-year fall of all the core verticals. As with online casino, its strongest showing came in Q2, when it reported a 2.9% increase in revenue, though unlike online casino it posted declines for all other quarters.Revenue came predominantly from gaming halls, which accounted for 75.9% of the total, with machines hosted in restaurants making up the remaining 24.1%. Daily average GGR per machine declined 2.2% to DKK3.9m. Friday proved the most popular day for playing the machines, accounting for 16.5% of revenue.Moving to the land-based casino market, the vertical saw revenue fall 1.7% to DKK348m, though this was largely down to one particularly difficult quarter, with growth in all others. However, the 10.8% decline posted in Q1 far outstripped the growth seen throughout the rest of the year, resulting in the full-year drop. Average daily revenue for land-based venues was down 0.8% at DKK957,063.Spillemyndigheden also provided an update on uptake of its player protection services, the self-exclusion system, the Register Over Frivilligt Udelukkede Spillere (ROFUS), and the StopSpillet helpline. For ROFUS, 21,065 individuals had registered to use the solution by December 2019, of whom 75.9% were male.The vast majority of self-exclusions were permanent, making up 69.0% of the total, followed by 19.4% of players blocking access to gaming sites for six months. A further 8.3% self-excluded for three months, with just 3.3% blocking access for a sole month.For the StopSpillet helpline, gamblers made up 56.8% of callers, followed by relatives of gamblers, comprising 38.8%, with treatment professionals making up the remaining 4.4%. Of the relatives that called the helpline, women made up the majority (66.8%) of callers.

When the court refuses to entertain the plea, the officers then justify their action saying that though they had moved the court, the Supreme Court did not condone the delay and rejected the appeal.The bench recorded the submission of advocate SA Haseeb, who was being led in the matter by ASG Balbir Singh, that the delay had occurred on account of a misapprehension at the level of the Commissionerate that the appeal was to lie before the Gujarat High Court. It was only after the appeal before the High Court came to be dismissed, that the department moved the Supreme Court, which caused the delay.The bench stated that the legal position that the appeal is to lie before the Supreme Court cannot be a matter of doubt and it cannot be for the department to argue that it was not aware of this modality.”The central government in the revenue department must find an answer for such conduct of its officers and ensure that the matters which are to be litigated are dealt with by necessary dispatch”, noted the bench.The bench has requested Solicitor General Tushar Mehta to appear before it on Monday and apprise the court of the steps to be taken by the central government that litigations are conducted in observance of timelines instead of officers putting up such kinds of excuses.”It seems that the Union of India files appeals only to get the ‘chhaap’ or the stamp that it had appealed before the Supreme Court “, observed Justice Chandrachud at the outset.”We should call Solicitor General. In all matters, there is 400 to 500 days’ delay”, added Justice Shah. It was considered initially that officers at the secretary-level in the CBDT and the CBIC also be called as regards corrective measures.”The officers are in league with the assessee. They first file the appeal with the wrong court, then the appeal lies in objection, it is kept pending and then it is finally dismissed. Then they come before the Supreme Court with an application for the condonation of delay. When the court refuses to entertain the plea, they just say “What can we do? We had approached the court and filed the appeal but it was the Supreme Court that did not entertain”! They push the burden to the Supreme Court “, commented Justice Chandrachud.”In every matter of taxation, be it customs, be it income tax, there is a delay of 300 to 400 days!”, remarked Justice Shah.”Why would the Union of India file an appeal in the High Court when it knows that the appeal has to come before the Supreme Court? You are not an uninitiated person”, said Justice Chandrachud to Mr Haseeb.When Mr Haseeb sought to advance, by way of explanation, that there might not be sufficient legal knowledge at the commissionerate level, the bench was surprised.He explained that he had intended to imply that the officers perhaps miss that their remedy lies before the Supreme Court and not before High Courts.”There is a deliberate delay! To get the seal of the Supreme Court!”, commented Justice Shah.”We are noticing this in matter after matter. There are hundreds of crores involved. The officers just say that the Supreme Court did not condone the delay. They are taking us for a ride and also this is an abuse of the process by the officers!…When there is a question of an inspector being promoted to a higher level, the appeals are filed on time!”, remarked Justice ChandrachudIncidentally, in the immediately successive matter also, which was an appeal under the same provisions by the Commissioner of Central Excise and Sales. Tax, Chandigarh, there happened to be a delay of 808 days. In this matter, ASG N. Venkataraman appeared for the appellant.Justice Chandrachud noted that in the instance case also, in March 2019, the appeal had come to be filed before the Punjab and Haryana High Court and it was dismissed in February 2020.”You know how your revenue department works. You have worked on both sides. I have also worked on both sides”, directed Justice Shah at the ASG.”How can the Commissionerate not know that the appeal lies before the Supreme Court? The Union of India cannot take the view that the officers don’t know how to file an appeal!”, continued Justice Chandrachud.”If you see the statistics, you will be shocked! 80 to 90% of the appeals are filed with such gross delay “, said Justice ShahClick Here To Download Order[Read Order]Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
