Cover photo: Davor Rostuhar – writer and photographer / Karlovac County Tourist Board / Illustration HrTurizam.hr “The logo of Karlovac County is a graphic interpretation of a windmill – children’s toys composed of drops that symbolize the many rivers and streams of the county, or leaves that are a symbol of the richness of forests. And in the performance we were inspired by the mill spoons from Rastok. And all this with the recognizable Karlovac Star in the center, which in turn symbolizes the geographical position and belonging to the destination”Said Vladimir Resner, author of the new visual identity of Karlovac County, which symbolizes joy, diversity and playfulness. In addition to tourist applications, the logo has its derivatives for other activities in the county.   Every brand should be simple and recognizable, communicatively clear and visually impressive, and at the same time based on reality, ie identity, potentials and the offer of the destination., points out prof. dr. sc. Božo Skoko from the Millennium Promotion and adds: “To define the basic elements of brand identity, it is important to explore the opinion of the community as the bearer of identity in the destination area. I am glad that the thoughts of the external experts coincided with those in the county. The richness of natural beauties, unique rivers and forests, preserved cultural heritage, traditional products and gastronomy make Karlovac County indigenous and attractive to various segments of guests. Its additional trump card is the proximity of Zagreb, but also the fact that it lies on key traffic corridors, which make it easily accessible. “ said Skoko, who has been working with the Millennium Promotion destination branding team and designer Vladimir Resner in recent months to define the identity and personality of the Karlovac County brand.  Side dish:center_img And since a new slogan was presented along with the sign In the media really (In the middle of things) the author explains that the new slogan is not only technical information about the geographical position of the County, but also carries an emotional value – a message that says that in that county they deal with important things, that they are fast and efficient, and tell tourists how they are in the center of events, in the heart of Croatia. By the way, Karlovac County is considered the greenest Croatian county, it is rich in rivers, it leans on the most visited Croatian national park Plitvice Lakes, and spatially connects Pannonian Croatia with the Adriatic and Slovenia with Bosnia. This was precisely one of the foundations for the creation of a new visual identity. Indigenousness, openness, dynamism, excitement, inspiration and fairytale are the key elements of the Karlovac County brand, point out the Millennium Agency, and hold that the differentiation of the county is based on its unique nature and geographical and traffic position. “It is accessible and offers an extremely natural environment, suitable for creating attractive tourist facilities, activities, experiences and experiences.

Enlarged Stars Group focuses on debt reduction despite Flutter movements

first_img StumbleUpon Share Submit Toronto TSX-listed The Stars Group Inc underlines its corporate focus of integrating its new international sportsbook assets and reducing its debt load, after publishing its Q3 2019 trading update (period ending 30 September).Incorporating the assets of Sky Bet (UK) and its newly formed Australia division merging Crownbet and William Hill AUS, the Stars Inc records an 8% increase in Q3 2019 group revenues to $622 million (Q32018: $571m).“Our third-quarter results were robust and in-line with our expectations, supported by strong revenue growth in our United Kingdom and Australia segments, which helped offset both the ongoing disruption in certain of our lower-priority international markets and continued foreign exchange headwinds across the business,” said Rafi Ashkenazi, The Stars Group’s Chief Executive Officer.A breakdown of segments sees the Stars Group’s flagship PokerStars division continue to flounder by recording period revenues of $325 million (Q32018: $352 million), impacted by local restrictions on payment methods and market closures in jurisdictions such as Switzerland (July 2019).A tough trading period for PokerStars, which faces multiple market headwinds combined with currency impacts, sees the division’s operating income reduced by 35% to $88 million (Q32018: $135m).Diversifying its assets, the Stars Group points to Sky Bet as the firm’s standout performer, noting that its UK venture has maintained its commercial momentum despite acquisition disruptions.Detailing double-digit growth across its betting (+52%) and gaming (+16%) verticals, Sky Bet records period revenues of $226 million (Q32018: $168m).Driven by strong customer activity, improved retention and cross-sell efficiencies, Sky Bet delivers a positive period operating income of $15 million (Q32018: -$28million).However, incorporating its new assets Stars Group reports increased general and administrative period operating costs of $335 million (Q3 2018: $267m) as the TSX firm declares period net losses of $52 million.Updating investors, Ashkenazi and Stars Group governance underline debt reduction as a core directive leading the group’s enlarged operations, which at present sees the company’s long term principal debt stand at $5.1 billion.“Our highly cash generative business model also enabled us to reduce our net debt by over $100 million in the quarter and prepay yet another $100 million in October, bringing our total prepayments since the beginning of the year to over $450 million and around $600 million since July 2018,” added Ashkenazi.“Ahead of closing, we remain highly focused on our key strategic priorities of integration, execution and debt reduction. Not only have we largely completed the integration of Sky Betting & Gaming, but we currently expect to exit 2019 with a run-rate of the full $100 million of expected cost synergies and are beginning to execute on our plans for revenue upside through Sky Bet in Italy and Germany and our developing U.K. ecosystem.” Share Related Articles PokerStars moves to refresh global appeal with ‘I’M IN’ August 18, 2020 ‘Deal maker’ Rafi Ashkenazi ends Flutter tenure  August 27, 2020 BlueRibbon signs strategic partnership with The Stars Group August 18, 2020last_img read more

SANTA MONICA STAKES QUOTES

first_imgTRAINER QUOTES MARTIN GARCIA, SWEET MARINI, SECOND: “She got a little bit tired. We were going pretty fast up front and when we got to the stretch the other horse just got by us today.” ELVIS TRUJILLO, SAM’S SISTER, WINNER: “It was the perfect trip. I knew there was going to be a lot of speed in there and I knew it would be fast early on. But I knew that sooner or later they would have to stop. She’s a nice filly. I knew Martin (Garcia on Sweet Marini) would stop; it was too fast for three horses head-to-head.” JOCKEY QUOTEScenter_img JERRY HOLLENDORFER, SAM’S SISTER, WINNER: “We got a 22 and 43 (fractions), so it makes it a little easier to close ground. We thought that might happen, but then when Dancinthenightaway kind of shook loose a little bit, it looked a little bit risky. But we were able to sustain and run her down in the end.“I’m just taking these races one at a time (when asked if she might stretch out). We thought she would run long (entered in Saturday’s La Canada at 1 1/16 miles, but scratched), but we thought this was a more advantageous race, so that’s why we went here.“We’ll take a look at a few different things (races).”NOTES: The winning owners are Mark Dedomenico of Belleview, WA; Jerry Hollendorfer of Point Richmond, CA; and George Todaro of Seattle. -30-last_img read more
