Adidas sets out ambitious target to overtake Nike

first_imgMonday 8 November 2010 8:36 pm Tags: NULL German sporting goods company Adidas aims to grow sales to €17bn (£14.6bn) by 2015 as it strives to overtake market leader Nike. “Our aspirations are to outperform total market growth… to outgrow our major competitor and have the bottom line grow faster than the top line,” chief executive Herbert Hainer said yesterday in a presentation to analysts at the company’s headquarters in Herzogenaurach, Germany.Last week, Adidas reported strong third-quarter results, lifted by US and eastern European growth, and said it expected 2010 sales to grow by 8 eight per cent at constant currency rates from €10.4bn in 2009. Nike recorded sales of $19bn in its year to May 2010.Adidas, the world number two, said its key growth markets would be North America, Greater China, Russia/CIS, Latin America, Japan, Britain and India.Under the new strategic plan, named “Route 2015”, Adidas is targeting a compound annual earnings growth rate of 15 per cent, faster than sales growth, and an operating margin of 11 per cent by 2015 at the latest.Hainer said its Adidas and Reebok brands would account for more than 90 per cent of the planned 45-50 per cent increase in sales. whatsapp whatsapp by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity Timesmoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryTaonga: The Island FarmThe Most Relaxing Farm Game of 2021.

Catena outlines US affiliate expansion plans

first_imgFinance AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Email Address Catena outlines US affiliate expansion plans Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Affiliate marketing giant Catena Media has targeted US dominance after enjoying a record-breaking start to 2018.New chief executive Per Hellberg said he has set his sights on taking the firm to “new heights” after it posted year-on-year financial growth in the first half. Hellberg, who took on the role in June, is positive about what he has seen so far at Catena and, reflecting on the first-half results, said he is optimistic about further growth. Revenue and EBITDA soar after busy period of acquisitions Topics: Finance Sports betting 13th August 2018 | By contenteditor Regions: Europe Nordics Sweden Revenue in the six months to June 30 amounted to €50m (£44.6m/$56.9m), up 65% on the corresponding period last year, while EBITDA also hiked 67% to €22.5m. However, a slight drop in EBITDA margin, attributed to higher operating expenses caused by US investment, has led to a drop in the company’s share price on the Stockholm Nasdaq. “The team and I are strongly motivated to take Catena Media to new heights,” Hellberg said.The company acquired New Jersey igaming affiliate BonusSeeker.com and Dreamworx Online, a company active in the sports, casino and financial services markets, during the period.Hellberg said the company is making “considerable investments [in the US], acquiring companies offering a strong foothold and recruiting exceptional talent”.He added: “Our US sites already have thousands of daily visitors and we are ready to provide quality leads to new operators.“With economies of scale resulting from these initiatives set to substantially increase our revenues in the long term, we are carefully taking into account the associated short-term decrease in margins. The results announcement comes on the back of further merger and acquisition activity at Catena, including the purchase of ASAP Italia of €16m just before the end of the first half. Other buys in the period included Australian stock market news and analysis website TheBull.com.au, specialist racing website GG.co.uk, and affiliate assets in both French sports betting website ParisSportifs.com and German financial lead generator BrokerDeal.de.last_img read more

Leadership… and my running and support game.When did you link up with Queensland Reds?I signed a two-year contract before the 2019 season. It’s been awesome to learn off some experienced players and the team is still young, so we all get along.What do you want to achieve in the next 12 months? To start for the Reds – get solid game time week in, week out, and then everything after that should take care of itself.How do you switch off from rugby? I play golf. I’m also studying business, majoring in accounting, at Queensland University of Technology.RW VERDICT: One of the standout performers in the U20 World Cup, where he led his team to the final for the first time since 2010, McReight marries his physicality with brilliant skills in the loose.

I’ve played cricket and rugby most of my life, starting as early as I could. However, I stopped playing cricket to turn my attention to volleyball at 15.I first got involved with rugby when I was five, for the Albany Creek Brumbies for ten years. I loved it – I basically got put into rugby because I had too much energy for my mum and dad! I started playing for Brisbane Grammar School at 13 and for two years played schools rugby on Saturday and club rugby on Sunday.Talk us through your representative honours… Queensland U18 Sevens, Queensland Schoolboys and Australia Schoolboys.I played for the Junior Wallabies in the Oceania U20 Championship and Junior World Cup last year as well as this year.What do you like about rugby?I love competing but I also enjoy the mateship and the celebrations after a game; having a beer in the sheds with your best mates!Who were your childhood heroes? I loved watching Sam Warburton’s highlights on YouTube. And George Smith because of Rugby 2005 (PlayStation game). He was on the cover and I remember his awesome dreads!Who has been the biggest influence on your career? My first XV coaches and my coaches who had me in my first year at Brothers after I left school just made me enjoy my rugby, but most importantly my parents.

The pavillion, which was comissioned privately, was originally conceived and planned as a tea house. In the course of the planning phase, the project evolved into a decorative and ornamental structure that was given a new purpose. It grew into a Folly of the kind that populated 18th century landscaped gardens in England and turned into an edifice without a clear definition – a larger than lifesize abstract piece of furniture.

On the island of Bali, Indonesia, the activity of collecting recyclable waste is not institutionalized. Because of that, it attracts people looking for a mean of subsistence, who collect materials in homes and companies to sell them later, by weight. However, the activity is not seen with good eyes by the local population.
