all the latest India News download Indian Express App More Related NewsBy: PTI | Chennai | Published: February 5 2017 12:28 pm DMK leader M K Stalin Top News People of Tamil Nadu did not vote for anyone from Jayalalithaa’s “household” to be chief minister says DMK Working President M K Stalin who appears to be keeping his options open on the possibility of another government in the tenure of the current Assembly He also asserts that there are no “obstacles” to his leadership in the party and dismisses as “pointless” questions whether projecting him as the chief ministerial face would have won DMK power in the last year’s Assembly polls The 63-year-old leader who was made the Working President of DMK last month is worried about divisions in the ruling AIADMK after the death of Jayalalithaa and keen that it should not affect the functioning of the administration “One thing is certain that the government – in its present form – is clearly one that doesn’t have the explicit legitimacy of having been elected by the people” Watch What Else Is Making News “The people voted for a government to be headed by Ms Jayalalithaa in May 2016 and not for one to be run by Mr O Panneerselvam or any other person from Ms Jayalalithaa’s household” Stalin told PTI in an interview the first since he took over as Working President His comments came on a day the chorus grew in the AIADMK for its General Secretary V K Sasikala to take over as Chief Minister of the state So the Leader of the Opposition in the state said the present government which clearly does not enjoy the support of the majority people which has a divided cabinet and the AIADMK MLAs speaking in different voices is bound to fail “As a responsible party the DMK is watching the situation closely Any decision that we take will be within the framework of democracy reflecting the popular will and aspirations of the people” he said He was asked whether he foresaw the possibility of DMK forming a government within the tenure of the 15th Assembly given that the gap in numbers between the ruling and the opposition parties is not very huge Asked about reports of power struggle within AIADMK in the wake of Jayalalithaa’s death Stalin said DMK does not want to intervene or interfere in the internal affairs of AIADMK but there were reports on a daily basis that such a division existed “As the Leader of the Opposition in the state however my primary worry is that such internal problems within the ruling AIADMK should affect neither the functioning of the Legislative Assembly nor the administration of the stateAs the main opposition party in the state the DMK has the responsibility to ensure that” he said When queried about murmurs of criticism about family politics in DMK and when he foresaw himself taking full charge of the party Stalin said his detention under MISA during the emergency in 1975-77 is still green in his memory He said he was happy that he had an opportunity to fight for democracy as a cadre of the DMK during his youth “Dr Kalaignar (Karunanidhi) is the President of the party and he has been guiding me in all the spheres of my activity I know very well that a hard and sincere worker in the DMK will never face obstacles and even if there are a few obstacles they will be converted into stepping stones” he said Stalin son of Karunanidhi had led a spirited campaign ahead of the Assembly elections last year that in which the party won 89 seats on its own and 98 together with allies in a House of 234 losing by a narrow margin in the race for power Asked if he agreed with the analysis that probably projecting him as the chief minister would have ensured DMK’s victory he said the number of seats won by DMK individually and together with allies were both unprecedented records “Even with the draw of Ms Jayalalithaa at the helm of AIADMK the vote margin between the party in power and the DMK was just 11 per cent Our future is so bright This kind of post-hoc speculation about our previous campaign that your question raises is completely pointless I strongly believe that digging into the past is distracting from the future” he said To a question on the perception that DMK has not been strident in attacking the Centre on issues concerning central projects in the state Stalin said as a political party DMK always preferred to maintain good relations with the party in power at the Centre but only as long as the interests of the State and the secular character of the nation are protected “But we are not the ruling party in Tamil Nadu It is for the ruling AIADMK which also happens to have 49 MPs to make the central government act fairly towards the state” He said he was disappointed at the AIADMK government’s lack of enthusiasm to fight for the rights of the state with the government at the Centre As for the Sethusamudram project Stalin charged that it has been delayed not only due to the efforts of the BJP but also due to the AIADMK government’s attitude which is unmindful of the development of the state “DMK is strongly for the Sethusamudram project which will boost the economy spur development and create employment – in not only the southern districts but the whole state and wherever the situation demands we haver been raising our voice for the implementation of the project” he said When queried about the Dravidian parties aligning with the one or the other national parties in recent decades and whether the Marina Uprising had any message for DMK to go to its roots Stalin said he believed in constructive centre-state relations “In a federal set-up the state government has to depend upon the help of the Central government on so many important issues such as inter-state disputes major infrastructure development projects and allocation of central funds” he said At the same time Stalin said DMK is not for giving up the state’s rights It was their party which had first appointed the Rajamannar Commission over Centre-State relations and it was DMK which had adopted the motto “autonomy for states and federalism at the Centre” The party remains committed to this principle always he said adding whenever the state’s rights were harmed during the years the party was in the ruling coalition at the Centre it had achieved a number of projects for the development of the state “Whenever state’s rights were affected during those years we never hesitated to express our views or raise our voice with all seriousness and strength We never compromised our individual identity while supporting any government at the Centre as this identity is our heart and soul “The recent Marina uprising reflects the disappointment among the students and youth about the non-performing AIADMK government in the state and the Centre’s complete apathy towards important issues concerning the state “As many have observed the Jallikattu issue is the straw that broke the Camel’s back the issue that ignited the pent-up discontent on many issues” he said Stalin cited the “betrayal” of the Centre over the formation of Cauvery Management Board despite the Supreme Court’s direction has been mentioned by many students who were interviewed during the protests “History shows that this kind of large-scale action has been crucial to the growth and evolution of the Dravidian Movement over the past century Think of the massive student-led anti-Hindi agitation in the mid-1960s which was the precursor to the first DMK government in 1967 “As the current standard-bearer of the Dravidian Movement the DMK is confident that the students’ uprising will once again reinforce our objectives rather than undermine them” he said The DMK Stalin said was the first party to take up the cause of Jallikattu very early “I myself led a mammoth protest at Alanganallur on January 3 itself But it was a peaceful protest of students youngsters and common citizens in places like the Marina Beach in Chennai and Tamukkam grounds in Madurai which ultimately forced the AIADMK government’s hand to table the legislation enabling Jalllikattu” Equally he said the DMK has been relentlessly fighting for the cause of the people including recently the appointment of a Commission of Inquiry into the alleged discriminate attack and atrocities unleashed by the police on the students after the peaceful Jallikattu protests Stalin said the recent announcement by the chief minister about the formation of a Commission of Inquiry with almost all the terms demanded by the DMK was a victory for the party “The party has its principles and values and will continue to fight to ensure that the interest of the each and every section of society in the state is protected fully against the maladministration of the AIADMK” he said Asked about his taking over at the helm of his party at a time when there is vacuum in the the state with the fading away of Jayalalithaa and Karunanidhi from politics Stalin said he did not agree with the theory that there is a political vacuum in the state “It is a theory being planted by some people with a view to discrediting the DMK – the Dravidian party which has worked for the betterment of the state in the field of social justice women’s emancipation industrial growth and economic development for over 50 years “Dr Kalaignar is still very much the unassailable President of the party nd he continues to inspire and guide the party… “I am not new to the party I have worked as Unit Organiser Branch Secretary Youth Wing Secretary Dy General Secretary and Treasurer along the seniors and veterans I have now assumed the responsibility as the Working President of the party I am humbled by the affection and faith and great amount of confidence that the party cadres have vested in me “I am in turn confident that I can discharge the responsibility given to me by the General Council of DMK under the able leadership of Dr Kalaignar- to the best satisfaction of the entire party” he said On the challenge facing him and his party Stalin said the challenge before it now was to recover the lost glory of the state which has been “squandered by the inefficient incapable and corrupt AIADMK government “Our state has seen massive decline with regard to industrialisation general economy growth in job opportunities and overall development in the last six years’ of AIADMK misrule “Reconstructing the state will be a Herculean task and a big challenge – but one that we are well prepared for Even in opposition the DMK will continue to highlight the misdeeds poor governance and maladministration of AIADMK rule in the state” For all the latest India News download Indian Express App More Top NewsWritten by Shaju Philip | Thiruvananthapuram | Updated: February 17

Setup fees brought in a further SEK56.2m in revenue, up 10.2%, and other revenues increased almost seven-fold to SEK26.2m.The supplier’s chief executive, Therese Hillman, said that revenue grew in the United States but declined in Sweden and Norway.Red Tiger, which was acquired by NetEnt in September 2019, contributed SEK 126m in revenue.“Since the acquisition, Red Tiger has exceeded our expectations and now forms a vital part of our ongoing improvement efforts within the NetEnt Group,” Hillman said.NetEnt’s operating expenses also increased, however, by 7.1% to SEK1.26bn.

However, this was outweighed by financial expenses, which more than tripled to SEK128.5m, resulting in pre-tax profit declining 24.1% to SEK472.1m.After tax, which came to SEK44.3m, NetEnt recorded a full-year profit of SEK428.9m, down 25.7%. After exchange rate differences, primarily from a weaker Swedish Krona compared to the British Pound, NetEnt’s total income for the period attributable to shareholders came to SEK566.9m, down 3.1%.For the fourth quarter of 2019, NetEnt’s revenue came to SEK512.0m, the highest quarter ever for the company and up 10.0% year-on-year.Geographically, Great Britain contributed to 19% of NetEnt’s game win (player bets minus wins), from which royalty fees are calculated, while Sweden contributed 7%. Other Nordic countries brought in 13% of NetEnt’s game win, other non-Nordic European countries 44% and the rest of the world 19%.Slot games made up 94% of game win and table games 6%. Although NetEnt did not disclose its total game win, Hilman said the figure increased 4.9% in euro currency terms.NetEnt did not break down game win by region or type of game for the full year.Operating expenses came to SEK351.4m, also up 10.0%. This was made up of SEK122.2m in personnel costs, SEK100.7 in depreciation and amortisation costs and SEK128.5m in other operating expenses.This resulted in an operating profit of SEK160.6m, up 9.8%. However, after a net financial loss of SEK33.6m, pre-tax profit came to SEK127.0m and overall profit to SEK112.6m, down 10.2% year-on-year.Hillman said the Red Tiger acquisition ensured NetEnt is well-primed for 2020.“Backed by our ongoing focus on efficiency and the acquisition of Red Tiger, we are entering the new year in a stronger position,” Hillman said. “Our global distribution and two strong brands give us the right basis to increase our market shares in online casino.

Not in a million years did I think I would be writing this article. I can’t remember the last time I considered Lloyds Banking Group (LSE: LLOY) as a viable investment. It’s at least four years. Yet today I argue that the Lloyds share price is so low that it’s in the bargain bin.I damaged the Lloyds share priceI played a part in the collapse of Lloyds. I worked in the PPI (payment protection insurance) industry from 1991 to 2002. After leaving, I waged war on PPI from 2003 until the claims deadline on 29 August 2019.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…I was a whistleblower, revealing in hundreds of articles, interviews and broadcasts how problematic PPI was. In 2006, the Office of Fair Trading referred the PPI market to the Competition Commission for investigation. I wrote a lengthy exposé to the Commission, earning me the industry nickname of “The guy who killed PPI”.In the UK’s biggest mis-selling scandal, Lloyds paid out £22bn in PPI compensation, out of a total exceeding £53bn. Ouch!It’s not easy being a bankThe PPI mis-selling scandal and the global financial crisis of 2008/09 that nearly killed Lloyds are ancient history. But the bank faces other difficulties that hurt the Lloyds share price and its profitability.For example, the old rule of retail banking was the ‘3:6:3 rule’. Pay savers 3% yearly interest, charge mortgage borrowers 6% a year and pay golf at 3pm. However, in this age of zero and negative interest rates, lending margins have been destroyed. No more 3% NIMs (net interest margins) for UK banks. Also, coronavirus losses will absolutely annihilate banking profits.Lloyds share price has performed terriblyAny idea how badly the Lloyds share price has done in recent years? Check out this lengthy litany of large losses:Six months: -50.4%One year: -44.9%Two years: -49.5%Three years: -53.8%Five years: -63.4%Owning Lloyds has been disastrous, with the share price halving or worse over four of these five periods. Six months ago, the Lloyds share price hit its 2019/20 high of 73.7p and crashed to a 12-month low of 27.1p on 14 May.Isn’t it time to buy Lloyds?I’ll get to the point: Lloyds has been a dog with fleas since 2007, but how low can it go? Every dog has its day and there must come a time when the Lloyds share price has its day in the sun. Without Covid-19, Lloyds could have enjoyed a wildly profitable 2020, but we’ll never know.I regard today’s Lloyds share price of 31.3p as an option on the bank’s future. There is no dividend and Coronavirus will wipe out earnings in 2020/21. Still, for the price of a packet of crisps, you gain part-ownership of a £22.6bn business.Lloyds is #1 in UK retail banking by a long, long way. It and a supportive Conservative government should make banking profitable again. Otherwise, we may as well all pack up and go home, because capitalism will be dead. The Lloyds share price is depressed today, but it won’t be forever. I’d buy.last_img
