William Hill pushed into loss by Australia writedown
Betting firm William Hill has been pushed into an annual loss after slashing the value of its Australian business. The bookmaker reported a loss of £74.6m for 2017, compared with a profit of £181.3m the year before. The writedown is due to changes in regulation - with credit-funded betting now banned - and a rise in taxation. William Hill is currently carrying out a strategic review of its Australian business, which is due to be completed by mid-2018. Despite the hefty write-off pushing the company into a loss, William Hill said that its underlying performance had improved.
