An improved performance from its online business helped British bookmaker William Hill Plc (Frankfurt: 633847 - news) to post a rise in first-half revenue, sending its shares up sharply. William Hill, which in March named a new chief executive and a finance boss, said revenue rose 3 percent to 837 million pounds ($1.1 billion) in the first half of the year and also nudged up its interim dividend by 4 percent. For William Hill, a stronger online business marks a clear recovery from a year ago when it fired its previous chief executive for not making enough progress in the sector.

British bookmaker William Hill Plc (Frankfurt: 633847 - news) , which in March named a new chief executive and finance head, on Tuesday reported a 16 percent rise in online net revenue for the 17 weeks to April 25 after product improvements helped it to attract more customers.

British bookmaker William Hill Plc (Frankfurt: 633847 - news) said it was set to name a new chief executive shortly and expected a stronger performance in 2017 after operating profit fell by 10 percent last year. The betting chain has been without a permanent chief executive since losing patience with James Henderson last July because he was failing to deliver enough growth in online and international gambling. The Financial Times reported this week that interim CEO Philip Bowcock was poised to be confirmed in the role.
British bookmaker William Hill Plc said annual operating profit would fall to 260 million pounds ($316.7 million), the bottom of its forecast range, blaming "customer friendly" horse racing and soccer results in December. The decline in earnings is another blow to the gambling company as it searches for a new chief executive and after a number of rivals joined forces to increase competition in the sector. As recently as November 14 the company had forecast that operating profit would be at the higher end of the 260-280 million pound range.
LONDON, Dec (Shanghai: 600875.SS - news) 8 (Reuters) - Britain should drastically reduce the amount of money gamblers can stake on fixed-odds betting terminals to tackle addiction and associated crime, a group of lawmakers said on Thursday. A fixed odds betting terminal is a touch screen machine found in betting shops that allows players to bet on the outcome of various games such as roulette with fixed odds. Introduced 15 years ago, the machines have become a lucrative business for high street betting shops and helped them to survive despite the growth of online gambling.
LONDON/TORONTO, Oct (Shenzhen: 000069.SZ - news) 18 (Reuters) - William Hill (Other OTC: WIMHF - news) and Canadian online gambling company Amaya Inc have abandoned merger talks, leaving the British bookmaker struggling to find a partner in a fast consolidating industry. Amaya, operator of the PokerStars website, and William Hill, one of the best-known British gambling brands, said earlier this month they were in talks about a merger of equals but the deal was thrown into doubt days later when a leading investor in William Hill said it would oppose the plan. The Canadian company said it had decided it could best deliver shareholder value by remaining an independent company, while William Hill said it decided to walk away after canvassing its biggest investors.
