TAB.co.nz | Merger option revealed

Posted by on Mar 27, 2017 in Auckland | Comments Off on TAB.co.nz | Merger option revealed

New Zealand’s TABLATURE is in discussions with Australia’s Tabcorp as it combat with foreign competitions and increasing prices.

New Zealand Racing Board spokeswoman Kate Gourdie said the state-owned gaming bureau was in discussions with three organisations, including Tabcorp, about “automating” its fixed-odds betting company. The TABLATURE with a monopoly over sports is run by the Racing Board.

A spokesman for Racing Minister Nathan Guy as well as Gourdie said there were no plans to privatise the TABLATURE.

Nevertheless, it seems the discussions could result in a level of outsourcing.

Gourdie was unable to immediately comment on in the event the changes being studied might have occupation consequences or whether that was the situation.

“It’s much too early for people to discuss possible options when we do not understand what the closing choice will be,” she said.

Tabcorp is a top-100 company on the Australian stock exchange, where’s it’s valued at A$3.6 billion (NZ$3.8b), and employs more than 3000 staff.

The Australian Financial Review reported it was looking at the TABLATURE of New Zealand following the failure of many deals at a venture as well as home could find it take on the direction of the TAB’s fixed-odds betting company.

Tabcorp’s “vast expertise” in fixed-chances could allow it to be a powerful partner for the TABLATURE which was “well run but ready for innovation”, the AFR reported.

The Racing Board warned in its 2016 “statement of purpose” that its prices were increasing faster than its earnings as customers switched to less prosperous, on-line, fixed-odds betting, and that was “not sustainable”.

It expressly opened the doorway to “outsourcing or partnering”, saying that could lower prices and improve its service.

The AFR said if the New Zealand authorities push ahead with a different tranche of asset sales Tabcorp needed to place itself in the box seat as the legitimate buyer.

Yet, that now appears a long shot.

Guy’s spokesman said the brief answer was “no” to privatisation, saying the Government had rather been consulting on law changes that will strengthen the TAB’s function as a “statutory gambling monopoly”.

Tab.co.nz continues to be airing New Zealand racing since 2001 while there is been a co-mingling relationship, where all bets are combined in the exact same pool, between both sides for almost a decade.

The Authorities was stiffening laws to warn Kiwis from using foreign on-line gaming services and that “revealed quite clearly the Government’s aim”, he explained.

The New Zealand Racing Board, which runs the TAB in addition to two racing television channels, had turnover of $2.4b in 201415 and net profit of $144 million. Zealanders have TABLATURE accounts and the group has 670 retail outlets across the country.

Property Mangement | An update post

Posted by on Jan 13, 2016 in Uncategorized | Comments Off on Property Mangement | An update post

Not too long ago I did a post on Property Management (if you missed it you can view it here; http://brookfieldsstud.co.nz/91/) That post was for one of my friends in the US, I thought I would do an update post and bring it a little closer to home (speak about the state of Property Management in NZ).

I started to interview several “auckland real estate” agents, and ask what they think was going to happen to different parts of New Zealand in the property management industry in 2016.

Of course the main point that most of the real estate agents touched on was the fact that the Auckland housing market is going to continue to boom and boom. With thousands of people migrating to Auckland each week, the demand for property is extremely high, but the supply is obviously going to get lower and lower (you can only have so many places to live in one city!).

Specifically Vanessa Mowlem stated the following when I spoke to her on the phone just a few days ago. This is what she had to say about the New Zealand housing future.

“Kiwis aren’t just looking for a property that they can come and sleep in at the end of a long days work. They are looking for a place that they can call “home” and let their children grow up in. However this can often be hard in places like Auckland an Christchurch. With properties close to the city going for upwards of 600,000 dollars many young people are finding it hard to find a property that suits both their family lifestyle, and their working lifestyle. I suggest kiwis shop around through several real estate agents. Find one that understands your needs and willm work personally with you to find the best place that you can call home”.

Thanks so much for the quote Vanessa! Really appreciate you taking the time of day to speak to us on the blog.

If you’d like to learn more about Vanessa Mowlem I highly suggest you visit her website, which is highlighted throughout this post.

Until next time

Mark

Recently I posted about having our driveway fixed up (read the blog post here)

On the same train of thought, I recently decided to have my aluminium windows auckland repaired (also had them complete out; aluminium joinery auckland).

After I got my insurance sorted (can read the post about Hawke’s Bay insurance here), I was already to install my aluminium windows.

The ended up looking fantastic! Just like the picture above!

I also thought I would bring up another issue I found when I installed my windows. I needed a professional cleaner, after all the plaster leaked out onto the carpet. I contacted this
Auckland Cleaners company, to see if they could give me a free quote. They instantly obliged and gave me a completely free quote on my carpet cleaning. When I finally hired them they did a fantastic job. Would definitely reckon you check them out.

Would highly recommend you check out Window Factory if you want some fantastic renovations done on your Auckland property.
