The unaudited business results of the company Adriatic Croatia International Club for the activity of marina dd (ACI) show that the largest Croatian nautical company in the first nine months of 2020 generated 139 million kuna in operating revenues. At the same time, EBITDA for this period amounts to HRK 55 million. Looking at revenues from the annual connection, the results of ACI’s operations in the first three quarters are almost at the level of revenues of HRK 79 million in the period from January to September 2019. After generating HRK 52 million in annual berth services in the first six months, revenue amounted to HRK 78 million by the end of September. “I am pleased to say that ACI’s business results are significantly better than initial predictions and expectations. We have mostly succeeded in that because we have been rationally disposing of capital and managing the Company since the beginning of our mandate. What we can also be proud of is the fact that, despite the crisis, we managed to keep the same number of sailors on an annual berth as in 2019.”, Said the President of the Management Board of ACI dd Kristijan Pavić. “At the moment, we are focused on adjusting the business, preserving the company’s liquidity and continuing to implement a sustainable business policy. The operation of ACI marinas is significantly affected by concession agreements, which in most marinas last until 2030. Extending the concession period is a prerequisite for the realization of long-term investments of the Company, but also for expanding the range of services, raising quality and achieving better business results. “, States Kristijan Pavić. ACI dd manages 22 marinas with over 5.800 berths and is the carrier of nautical tourism in Croatia, which accounts for as much as one and a half billion euros in revenues of the entire tourism sector.

The Open Championship presents an outstanding opportunity to play some lesser known golfers. Each year, this major features a field with several golfers who star on the European Tour but remain rather unfamiliar to those who primarily follow the PGA Tour. The result of this unfamiliarity is a lack of PGA DFS ownership on a group of players that has historically performed quite well at the British Open.While golfers stationed on the European Tour don’t regularly hop over to the PGA Tour and dominate, The Open is a different story. Being a links course in the United Kingdom, the tournament is much more of a home game for the European Tour golfers than it is for most of the PGA Tour players. Still, many in daily fantasy golf contests overlook these golfers who lack the name recognition of some of the more popular options in the field.

Wiesberger’s only appearance on the PGA Tour this year was a 76th at the U.S. Open a month ago, but recently he has been going off on the European Tour. Right before his appearance at the U.S. Open, he won the Made in Denmark tournament. After the U.S. Open, he went T16th, T2nd, and then won again last week at the Scottish Open, which is often viewed as a warmup for The Open. The only reason I don’t anticipate heavy ownership on Wiesberger is that I don’t expect enough DFS players to recognize his form because all his recent success has come on the European Tour. If he was a well-known golfer, or the wins had come on the PGA Tour, I would expect his ownership to be through the roof at his price. But Wiesberger is not a big name and has been effectively doing damage in the shadows, potentially leading up to a crescendo at The Open. At a very palatable price, Wiesberger is an incredible option. Although Matt Wallace has never won on the PGA Tour, he has broken out recently and begun to make an impact beyond the European Tour. After winning three times on the European Tour in 2018, Wallace has produced five top-10 finishes this season, two of which were on the PGA Tour. In addition, Wallace has appeared in all three majors that were played on U.S. soil. He missed the cut at the Masters, but then produced a T3rd at the PGA Championship, followed by a T12th at the U.S. Open. It certainly seems that Wallace can hang with the big boys. Coming into this week, Wallace has made seven straight cuts, including three top-five finishes plus two more top-15 finishes. At just below average salary, he may get ignored without an attention-grabbing name or the label of a salary-saver. With piping hot form and low ownership, Wallace makes for an enticing play.Another golfer who has split time between the European and PGA Tours this season is Eddie Pepperell. He hasn’t had quite the year that Wallace has had, and for that reason I expect Pepperell to get even less attention. However, with three top-10 finishes in just 12 appearances, including a T3rd at The Players Championship, overlooking Pepperell could be a mistake. In his past nine tournaments, Pepperell has only missed the cut once, and two of his top-10 finishes have come in his past four contests. Royal Portrush should fit his game quite nicely, as well, and Pepperell has proven he can compete at The Open, making the cut in both tries, including a T6th last year. You can roster Pepperell for a cheap price, extremely low ownership, and legitimate upside.Aaron White graduated from Northwestern University with a B.A. in Economics.
