Expert advice on casino gaming definitions
Genesis was consulted by the attorneys for Sun International for expert advice regarding the appropriate market definition for both casino gaming and limited pay-out machines (LPMs), as well as about whether these could be considered to constitute a single market.
Genesis backs Minister of Labour on Section 32 of LRA
Genesis was appointed on behalf of a number of bargaining councils and the Minister of Labour in a High Court matter concerning Section 32 of the Labour Relations Act, which permits the Minister, under certain circumstances, to extend a collective agreement to employers and employees who are not members of the bargaining councils.
Assessment of damages claimed by 3M South Africa
Genesis was retained by a small healthcare products company, Bestcare, to assess the damages incurred following the termination of a supply contract by a large multinational supplier, 3M. The project team used before and after quantification techniques to determine the change in revenue that resulted from the termination of the contract for both private hospital supply contracts and public tenders. Through a careful financial analysis of the Bestcare’s cost structure, the team was also able to accurately determine potential cost reductions in order to quantify lost profits.
