If approval is granted by the Finnish Competition and Consumer Authority during 2017, the transaction can be completed at the end of 2017.- The food operations in Finland have been classified as an asset held for sale and reported as discontinued operations. The comparison figures in the Group and Stockmann Retail income statement and related items have been restated accordingly. The comments in the half year financial report refer only to continuing operations.- Stockmann Delicatessen in the Baltic countries will remain with Stockmann and is reported as a part of Stockmann Retail’s continuing operations. Guidance for 2017 remains unchanged:Stockmann expects the Group’s revenue for 2017 to decline due to changes in the store network and product mix. Adjusted operating profit is expected to improve, compared with 2016. CEO LAURI VEIJALAINEN: Stockmann’s strategic journey progressed in the second quarter. As the most visible step, we announced the sale of Stockmann Delicatessen in Finland to S Group. In the quarter, I am particularly satisfied that both Stockmann Retail and Real Estate clearly improved their operating profit, by over EUR 10 million in total. However, due to the weakened profitability of Lindex in Sweden, the Group’s operating result in the quarter was down on the previous year. Stockmann Retail delivered a good second quarter. Comparable revenue has now stabilised and we achieved slight sales growth in fashion and cosmetics. The decisions and actions taken are starting to be visible. As a result, Retail’s operating result improved significantly. A lot remains to be done, but our direction is definitely the correct one. Real Estate continued its stable performance, supported by the strengthened Russian rouble which boosted rental income from the Nevsky shopping centre. An investigation into the possible divestment of the property is ongoing according to plan. For Lindex, revenue and subsequently the result was adversely impacted by the weakening market in Sweden and intensive campaigning. Outside the Nordic countries, Lindex continued to grow its revenue but this was not enough to retain the highest ever operating profit, which Lindex achieved a year ago. Action will be taken to improve sales and profitability. We will also continue to invest in digitalisation and strong campaigns, to succeed during the important autumn season. We continue to focus on our key businesses and improving profitability in all three divisions. I am confident that we now have the capabilities to drive growth again in our Stockmann Retail business and to make this division profitable in 2018.

Stockmann uses Alternative Performance Measures according to the guidelines of the European Securities and Market Authority (ESMA) to better reflect the operational business performance and to facilitate comparisons between financial periods. Gross profit is calculated by deducting the costs of goods sold from the revenue, and gross margin is calculated by dividing gross profit by the revenue as a percentage. EBITDA is calculated from operating result excluding depreciation. Adjusted EBITDA and adjusted operating result (EBIT) are measures which exclude non-recurring items affecting comparability from the reported EBITDA and reported operating result (EBIT). Stockmann also uses the term “revenue in comparable businesses” which refers to revenue excluding Hobby Hall, which was divested on 31 December 2016, the Oulu department store, which was closed on 31 January 2017, and the Lindex stores in Russia, which were closed in 2016. OUTLOOK FOR 2017 In the Stockmann Group’s largest operating country, Finland, the economy has begun to recover. GDP and the retail market are expected to grow in 2017. Consumers’ purchasing power is, however, not expected to increase and purchasing behaviour is changing due to digitalisation and increasing competition. The Swedish economy remained stable in 2016 and the GDP growth estimate for 2017 remains on a higher level than in Finland. The steady growth in the fashion market stagnated in 2016, and the market is expected to decline in 2017. In the Baltic countries, GDP growth is estimated to continue. The outlook for these countries is expected to be better than that for the Stockmann Group’s other market areas. The Russian economy is expected to recover gradually, but the purchasing power of Russian consumers remains low. Stockmann will continue improving the Group’s long-term competitiveness and profitability. The efficiency measures launched in summer 2016 will be fully visible in the 2017 operating costs. Improvements in the operating result in 2017 are estimated to come mainly from the Stockmann Retail division, which is still loss-making, while Real Estate is expected to continue its stable profitable performance. Lindex’s operating profit in 2017 will be clearly down on the previous year’s record-high earnings. The planned sale of the Delicatessen business in Finland is expected to improve the Group’s profitability from 2018 onwards. Capital expenditure for 2017 is estimated to be approximately EUR 45-50 million, which is less than the estimated depreciation for the year. GUIDANCE FOR 2017 Stockmann expects the Group’s revenue for 2017 to decline due to changes in the store network and product mix. Adjusted operating profit is expected to improve, compared with 2016.

Asetek – Q2 2017: Revenue Growth Driven by Gaming PC Cooling Demand

Asetek reported revenue of $11.1 million in the second quarter of 2017, an increase of 33% from the second quarter of 2016 on higher desktop revenue driven by shipments in the DIY and Gaming Performance/ Desktop PC markets. Growth in the quarter also reflects an increase in shipment of data center products to OEMs. Revenue for the six months ending 30 June was $22.6 million, an increase of 21% from the same period of 2016.  “Q2 was another good quarter for Asetek. The demand for our efficient liquid cooling solutions for data centers, servers and PCs continues to grow. For 2017, we expect a decent growth within our desktop segment, especially due to high-end gaming customers. And we expect significant growth within our data center segment on the back of continued progress with OEM partners and increasing end-user adoption with technology deployed to new high performance (HPC) installations. Our job now is to make sure the positive development continues,” said André Sloth Eriksen, CEO and Founder.  EBITDA adjusted for share based compensation expense was was $1.1 million in the second quarter of 2017, compared with EBITDA adjusted of $0.3 million in the second quarter of 2016. First-half 2017 EBITDA adjusted was $1.8 million, compared to $1.6 million for the first half of 2016. Desktop revenue was $10.1 million in the second quarter, an increase of 34% from the same period of 2016. Operating profit from the desktop segment was $2.8 million, an increase from $2.2 million in the same period last year due to an increase in DIY and Gaming Performance/Desktop PC sales. Data center revenue was $1.0 million, an increase from $0.8 million in the prior year due to an increase in shipments to OEM customers, partly offset by a decline in shipments under government contracts. Revenue variability is expected to continue while the Company secures new OEM partners and growth of end-user adoption through existing OEM partners. Asetek continued to invest in its data center business and the segment operating loss was $1.6 million for the second quarter, compared with $1.3 million in the same period of 2016. Expenditures relate to technology development, manufacturing, and sales development with data center partners and OEM customers. Through new and repeat orders received from data center OEM partners in the first half of 2017, Asetek is increasing its end-user adoption with technology deployed to new HPC installations.  In the second quarter, this included orders of RackCDU D2C™ (Direct-to-Chip) liquid cooling from Fujitsu and Penguin Computing. Due to continued positive development within the desktop segment, Asetek increases its full year 2017 desktop revenue guidance from single digit growth to growth between 10% and 20% compared with 2016.  The outlook for the data center business is reaffirmed, with significant revenue growth expected compared with 2016.

ICA Gruppen’s Sustainability Report for second quarter 2017

“By virtue of our size we have a great responsibility, but on top of this we also clearly see that sustainability is a driver of growth. We see it in our figures, and it is also evident in numerous, independent studies. Companies with effective sustainability work are on average more profitable and deliver higher returns to their shareholders,” says Per Strömberg, CEO ICA Gruppen in his comments on the report. See the Sustainability Report for more information, including: · ICA Gruppen’s greenhouse gas emissions decreased by 41% during the period July 2016–June 2017 compared with the base year 2006. · Continued growth in sales of ecolabelled, organic and ethically labelled products in ICA Sweden’s central assortment. In total, sales of such products during the period July 2016–June 2017 grew 8% compared with the corresponding period a year ago. · New packaging contributing to lower food waste. By changing over to a new form of packaging for large parts of the meat range, considerably longer shelf life has been achieved as well as improved flavour. · Food waste becomes fish in circular system. Waste from potatoes is being used to breed insects, which in turn are being used as fish feed for Arctic char sold under ICA Sweden’s private label. · During the spring Apotek Hjärtat changed over to using plastic bags made of sugar cane. When incinerated the bags produce 85% less CO2than petroleum-based bags. For more informationICA Gruppen press service, Telephone number: +46 10 422 52 52

MenaQ7® Vitamin K2 Again Shown to Inhibit Hardening of Arteries: New Study

OSLO, NORWAY and METUCHEN, NJ (August 16th, 2017) – A new study1 of renal transplant recipients, a group shown to express subclinical vitamin K deficiency, examined whether K2 supplementation would correct this deficiency and thus improve arterial stiffness. The study has published in Journal of the American Society of Hypertension, and the vitamin K2 used in the study was MenaQ7® Vitamin K2 as MK-7 from NattoPharma. This Lebanese study evaluated in the KING trial (a single-arm pilot study) to see if there is an association between vitamin K2 supplementation and the change in both subclinical vitamin K status and indices of arterial stiffness among 60 renal transplant recipients with stable graft function. The results showed that 8 weeks of MK-7 supplementation (360 mcg/day as MenaQ7®) was associated with significant improvement in arterial stiffness and 24-hour peripheral and central pressures. The mean reduction in cfPWV was 1.4 m/s, which was well beyond the reduction of 1 m/s recommended for a clinically relevant vascular effect. “While our previous cardiovascular study in healthy postmenopausal women showed an improvement in arterial elasticity after 3 years of supplementation, the results collected in this trial are staggering, especially as the statistically significant effect was seen very quickly,” says Hogne Vik, chief medical officer of NattoPharma. “After just 8 weeks of MK-7 supplementation, low vitamin K status represented by dpucMGP level was significantly reduced by 55.1%. Moreover, supplementation was associated with a 14.2% reduction in mean cfPWV. “One can assume that longer MK-7 supplementation may lead to even better results, and secure improvement in cardiovascular outcomes in renal transplant patients.”  According to the researchers, prior observational studies have shown the prevalence of subclinical vitamin K deficiency has been reported to be as high as 80% in the renal transplant population. Moreover, in kidney transplant recipients, Vitamin K insufficiency, expressed as a high circulating level of dp-ucMGP (dephosphorylated-uncarboxylated matrix Gla protein, or “inactive” MGP, a K-dependent protein), is associated independently with increased risk of mortality. However, any studies to date have not addressed whether vitamin K supplementation may lead to improved outcomes after kidney transplantation.  In addition, MK-7 supplementation improved vitamin K status, which was represented by the reduction in dp-ucMGP concentrations. A positive correlation was present between the reduction in arterial stiffness, a surrogate of early cardiovascular disease, and the circulating concentration of dp-ucMGP, a marker of subclinical vascular vitamin K deficiency and calcification. The main conclusion was that, among renal transplant recipients with stable graft function, vitamin K2 supplementation was associated with improvement in subclinical K deficiency and arterial stiffness. According to the researchers, the findings from this trial support the hypothesis that subclinical vitamin K deficiency may be a modifiable cardiovascular risk factor and may improve with MK-7 supplementation. “NattoPharma was excited to participate in this clinical trial,” adds Dr. Vik. “We have dedicated ourselves to cultivating an understanding of the benefits Vitamin K2 offers to human health, and in that work have recognized that vitamin K2 deficiency can have serious implications on arterial health. This study adds to the body of evidence confirming the cardiovascular support MenaQ7® Vitamin K2 as MK-7 provides, and continues to solidify the hope this important nutrient offers the global population.” Reference: 1 Mansour AG et al.

Operating profit increased by SEK 5 million despite some negative effects from unplanned items. We can see that the extensive investments within the framework of the Agenda 500 programme are paying off in higher volumes, even though the unplanned shutdown at Vallvik held back growth for the quarter as a whole. We steadfastly continue to take a structured approach to further improve safety and increase capacity utilization, thereby sustainably increasing volumes in our niches. Production rose by 1 per cent in the Group to 101,400 tonnes compared with last year’s second quarter, despite the negative impact of 4.5 per cent from the unplanned shutdown at Vallvik. In May, however, the mill achieved a record volume for a single month at the same time that Rottneros Mill demonstrated the highest production ever for a single quarter. These achievements confirm that we continue to clearly move upwards on the volume curve. Meanwhile, more remains to be done to increase availability and production in the future. Our goal-oriented efforts are also paying off in terms of operating profit, which rose by SEK 5 million compared with the second quarter last year to SEK 62 million, despite the negative impact of certain unplanned items amounting to approximately SEK 5 million and primarily related to the production shutdown at Vallvik. Conflict actions among social partners at the Port of Gothenburg also had a negative impact. Continued stable marketThe market continues to be stable with a good balance between supply and demand and we are cautiously optimistic in the run-up to the third quarter. At the end of the second quarter, the NBSK list price was USD 890, up about 7 per cent. However, new volumes coming from several Nordic players in the second half of the year and 2018 may have a negative impact on the market balance in the future. Our development area, Rottneros Packaging, is now approaching start of construction for the new production line for bio-based food trays in Sunne. Demand in the sustainable packaging solutions market is robust and we are optimistic about the development potential of this new segment. Key new hire at VallvikThe hiring of Michael Berggren as head of Vallvik Mill represents an important step for the further development of the mill. Although we have come a long way, much remains to be done in the development of the organisation. A constant effort to improve skills is crucial for increasing availability at the mills and leveraging our investments. Agenda 500Within the framework for the Agenda 500 programme, the Board of Directors has approved a total of approximately SEK 620 million, of which approximately SEK 460 million has been spent on implementing measures to date and measures for the remaining approximately SEK 160 million will be implemented in 2017 and 2018. The company has good liquidity. As previously announced, we are working with an extended long-term funding strategy, which ensures our ability to carry out the investment programme while changing the capital structure. Planning for the autumn maintenance shutdown is in full swing. Rottneros Mill carries out its shutdown in September and Vallvik plans to stop production in the beginning of the fourth quarter. The estimated cost of these shutdowns is SEK 10 million and SEK 55 million, respectively. We were pleased to see so many shareholders at the Annual General Meeting in Söderhamn. The opportunity to see our new investments at the tour of the mill in Vallvik definitely contributed to the strong attendance. In summary, it is clear that we have established a new level of availability and production volumes at the mills, creating continued growth opportunities, especially in our selected niches. Our focus is to continually optimise the factors we can influence, regardless of external factors. This is particularly important in light of potentially rising costs for our inputs such as wood and electricity in the future. We are becoming better equipped for the future, in terms of both meeting potential challenges and taking advantage of our opportunities.

INTERIM PERIOD   · Net sales for the remaining operation during the interim period totaled SEK 36.8 (39.6) million. · The operating profit/loss for the remaining operation during the interim period totaled SEK -2.2 (12.4) million. · Profit after tax for the remaining operation totaled SEK -3.2 (12.4) million. · Earnings per share for the remaining operation totaled SEK -0.01 (0.04). · Earnings per share for the total operation totaled SEK -0.01 (0.03). · Cash flow from total operations totaled SEK 15.8 (17.5) million. Cash and cash equivalents for the total operation totaled SEK 115.0 (67.4) million at the end of the interim period.  SIGNIFICANT EVENTS   · An agreement was concluded with German company IDENTOS GmbH, which will take over the Mobile Smart Card Solutions business area as of January 1, 2018. · A new security suite was launched with industry-leading software for fingerprint recognition with spoof and liveness detection, as well as standalone anti-spoof products and services. · A licensing agreement was signed with Korean sensor manufacturer Melfas.

FINANCIAL DATA AND KEY INDICATORS     As a consequence of the fact that the Mobile Smart Card Solutions business area has been classified as a business held for sale, previously reported figures have been converted in order to improve comparability. In order to obtain comparable historical data, previously reported figures have only been adjusted for expenses relating directly to the discontinued business area, which will no longer affect the company’s remaining operation. The resources that were previously allocated to the Mobile Smart Card Solutions business area will be transferred to the Fingerprint Technology business area before the divestment is completed and have therefore not been included in the divested business. Resources are being reinforced in order to meet the market’s demand for increasingly advanced solutions in the field of Fingerprint Technology. The impact of the discontinued operation on the financial position has not been reported separately, as the company does not believe that it is possible to report the impact of the discontinued operation on cash flow. Cash flow is instead reported from the total operation.Unless otherwise specified, reported figures in the interim report relate to the remaining operation.

The partnership with Silead has resulted in substantial royalty revenues as Precise BioMatch Mobile has been launched in a number of phone models from one of the world’s biggest manufacturers. We now have royalty revenues from nine customers and continue to broaden the customer base in terms of both different technologies and geographical regions, in order to create good opportunities for growth and to reduce dependence on individual customer partnerships. We are also continuing to invest in development and support resources in Sweden and in the local markets in order to best support our customers.During the quarter we made a strategic decision to divest the loss-making Mobile Smart Card Solutions business area to IDENTOS in order to create a greater focus in the business. This divestment means that we can free up resources in both development and sales in order to strengthen our offering and our opportunities for growth in the field of fingerprint technology.There is currently a surfeit of sensor manufacturers offering capacitive sensors for fingerprint recognition. This has resulted in very tough competition with rapidly increasing demands for smaller sensors, better performance and lower prices, with suppliers that are already established enjoying competitive advantages. This makes it more challenging for many sensor manufacturers to break into the mobile phone manufacturers and capture bigger market shares. It is therefore more difficult to assess the sales volume of our customers during the second half of the year.At the same time we can see that new sensor technologies such as ultrasound and optical sensors are on the rise, which changes the market dynamics and opens the door for new suppliers. Ultrasound and optical sensors make it possible to integrate fingerprint sensors in and under the display, creating new design possibilities and lower product costs. There is a large interest in these kinds of solutions among mobile phone manufacturers. Many of our customers are offering ultrasound or optical sensors, which means that we are well positioned for the upcoming technology shift. We are working together with customers on several test projects, which we expect to result in product launches starting in the first half of 2018 and provide a further boost to our growth. For example, Qualcomm recently launched a new generation of ultrasound sensors and demonstrated the product in a modified version of VIVO XPlay 6 with our Precise BioMatch Mobile fingerprint software.We launched a new security suite during the quarter, offering industry-leading software for fingerprint recognition with the latest developments in spoof and liveness detection, as well as standalone anti-spoof products and services. The software is particularly suitable for optical and ultrasound sensors, and enhances security significantly for fingerprint recognition by identifying fake fingers and thereby combating fraud. The new solutions have generated a high level of interest among our customers and give us a unique position, as we are the only supplier that can offer software-based fingerprint software with spoof and liveness detection.Cards with fingerprint technology are on the rise. We announced two projects during the second quarter. Elan MicroElectronics launched a payment card with fingerprint technology that is to be supplied to premium customers of a South Korean bank. MeReal announced that their V2 biometric smart card will be put into use by Pleinair Casino. It is clear from work with our customers that the card market is developing quickly for both payments and other areas of application. We are involved in a number of card projects and are holding advanced discussions with several players in the card industry.OUTLOOKWe maintain our view on net sales for the remaining operation during 2017 and estimate that it will be on par with the comparable net sales for 2016 (SEK 83.3 million), even though the volume trend among our customers is more difficult to estimate than before. The company continues to expect an operating profit for the full year 2017 for the remaining operation.  PRESENTATION OF THE INTERIM REPORT           In connection with today’s interim report, we issue an invitation to an information event today at 10:00. Please see the last page of the interim report for further information about participation.  This information is information that Precise Biometrics AB is obliged to make public pursuant to the EU Market Abuse Regulation and the Securities Markets Act. The information was submitted for publication, through the agency of the contact person set out below, at 8.00 CEST on August 16, 2017.

FDA accepts Medivir´s IND application for MIV-711, enabling clinical development in the US

Stockholm, Sweden — Medivir AB (Nasdaq Stockholm: MVIR) announces today that the Investigational New Drug (IND) application for MIV-711 has been accepted and the IND is now open with the FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration). “We are very pleased to have received FDA acceptance for our IND. This is a regulatory milestone for MIV-711 and enables clinical development of MIV-711 in the US, in addition to the already completed and ongoing studies in Europe” says Åsa Holmgren, Medivir´s EVP Strategic Regulatory Affairs and Market Access. About MIV-711MIV-711 is being developed to slow or reverse the progressive degeneration of joints affected by osteoarthritis, and is therefore referred to as a Disease Modifying Osteoarthritis Drug (DMOAD). Since there are no DMOADs approved for use currently, the standard of care for osteoarthritis patients is based on changes in life style and the use of analgesics. The long-term use of analgesics by osteoarthritis patients is associated with an increased risk of side effects such as gastrointestinal bleeding and opioid dependency. DMOADs therefore represent a very large and attractive market opportunity. Medivir estimates that the US market alone is greater than USD 6 billion annually for a drug that impacts disease progression, even if its use was restricted just to patient populations with moderate osteoarthritis in weight-bearing joints.

CEO COMMENTS  Troax has developed well during the second quarter with an organic increase in orders of 17%, which clearly is above the historical growth average. We have received several important orders from customers within, automotive, warehouse and property, which shows that the Troax offering is strong. The newly acquired company in the USA, Folding Guard is following their plans and has a favorable trend in orders received. Our judgment is that the market development during the second Quarter has been positive for the Group. The growth has been especially strong in Continental Europe, and also new Markets have had a positive quarter. In the UK, we have during the second quarter seen some negative effects of a weaker willingness to invest at some customer groups, probably caused by the uncertainty related to Brexit etc. The orderbook at the end of the quarter continues on a good level. The integration work of the acquired company (end of last year), Folding Guard is progressing well. During the second quarter, the Nashville warehouse has been closed and the distribution moved to Chicago. The focus on growth continues to be strong but is not expected to show any bigger impacts until 2018/19. We can again confirm that the acquisition has so far been well received by important customers in the US. We see good opportunities to strengthen the customer base, long term, for both brands in the important market of North America. Sales invoiced increased in the quarter by 40 per cent compared with the same period last year (excluding acquisition and currency the increase is 26 per cent). The progress was positive in all markets. Totally, the Group has increased to an order intake level of approximately 138 MEUR on a rolling 12 month basis (including Folding Guard for the first two quarters of 2017). The result has continued to improve during the quarter, mainly because of good sales volumes and the consequential good capacity utilization in our factories. During last year, we also had some one-time costs related to the inauguration of the new paint line which we do not have this year. The market investments are continuing per plan. This is at a lower level short term, as some internal resources have been dedicated to the integration of our American acquisition. The operating result was 8,2 (5,1) MEUR, which corresponds to a profit margin of 20,7 per cent to be compared with 18,0 per cent last year. It should be noted that the consolidation of Folding Guard decreases the margin in percentage terms. We do however see clear possibilities to increase the margin also for Folding Guard long term. The Net result has also developed in a positive way, and amounts to 3,7 MEUR for the quarter (3,1 MEUR). In this comparison, we must consider that we have had a one-time financing cost of -2,3 MEUR related to the redemption of the bond in order to move over to ordinary bank financing. Barring any other eventualities, this change in the company’s financing structure will improve the finance net by 3,4 MEUR annually from now onwards. The result per share after the first half year is 0,39 EUR to be compared with 0,30 EUR last year. The Working Capital is on a similar level as the previous quarter. Work in Progress is on a continued high level, indicating that some important projects still are under implementation and hence still have not been invoiced.  We have continued with good cash generation from operations during the quarter and the net debt is now 66,5 MEUR and the key figure of our interest-bearing loan in comparison with EBITDA is below our target for the Group. Thomas Widstrand, President and CEO PHONE CONFERENCE Invitation to presentation of the second quarter result:Thomas Widstrand, CEO presents the result on a phone conference on the 16th of August 2017 at 16:00 CET. The conference will be held in English.

Talkpool Interim report January – June 2017

The positive trends in terms of revenue, profits and cashflow continue. Talkpool reports an EBITDA profit (of EUR 86 thousand) for the first time since its IPO. The newly acquired companies Camouflage and Technetix are developing well at the same time as Talkpool continues its positive organic development. The revenue growth continues and many of our markets developed well, with additional contracts and increasing orders. In addition to the positive organic development of our business, the newly acquired companies Camouflage and Technetix performed well in Q2. Camouflage almost doubled revenues from Q1 to Q2 and more than six-folded its profit. Camouflage was in the closing phase of an important operation & maintenance contract in June. It is a long term contract, similar to the one in Haiti, with recurring orders and a revenue stream that is valuable for the financial stability and growth of the company. Technetix in Belgium continued with solid revenue in Q2, in line with Q1, and managed to more than double the profit compared to Q1. The positive order trend from European network operators such as Deutsche Telekom, Belgacom, Vodafone and Orange continued in Q2.  Growth through M&A The acquisition of LCC in Pakistan that has 1,000 employees and EBITDA of around EUR 1.5 million for latest financial year, is a significant event in Talkpool’s history and a giant leap in the company’s growth development. After consolidating LCC into the Group, we are expecting to double revenues, improve EBITDA margins and reach a positivestrengthen our operative cashflow. We’re planning to develop LCC Pakistan into the company hub for the Middle East. The LCC acquisition accelerates Talkpool’s transformation into a profitable and fast-growing business that stands on its own feet. We have now achieved the first step in our strategic roadmap and through this we have gained the financial and operational stability to increase the investments in the emerging Internet of Things industry. Growth through M&A has turned out successful with the first two acquisitions of Technetix and Camouflage. In addition to the significant financial contribution those acquisitions also add new knowledge, customer segments and geographical regions to Talkpool Group. The added value will become even more obvious as LCC Pakistan is added to the group. Furthermore, know- how is also being gained by analzying the market and the different acquisition target companies. Based on this success we will continue on our acquisition path for both network services and IoT. Organic growth in many regions Talkpool Mexico had a slow startofin2017 Q1 with very little project activities due to a combination of seasonality and the Trump effect, but in Q2 the market started moving again and Talkpool Mexico’s investments in staff hiring, training and tools started to pay off. Our activities in Germany also continued to gain speed in Q2. Talkpool is now an established provider of broadband network design and project management services to Deutsche Telekom in the big government-sponsored fiber build-out in Germany. The federal government in Germany plans to roll out a gigabit internet service across the country by 2025. The EUR 100 billion project will focus on bandwidth, security and response times. The development, including virtual reality and the internet of things, will bring huge data growth and the need for more bandwidth, reliable real-time transmission and intelligent networks. Haiti and Tanzania continued to deliver stable and reliable revenue and profits and the outlook is good in both countries. Digicel in the Caribbean issued a request for quotation for the operation and maintenance in Haiti and other major markets in the region and Talkpool is very well positioned to extend the contract for the existing region and expand into new areas. IoT Talkpool AG and Sigren Engineering AG were awarded an IoT smart building assignment for real estate in Zürich, Switzerland that hosts a large search engine company and other prime tenants. The project is considered strategically important. The sales of Talkpool´s IoT temperature and humidity sensors continued to develop very well and the new partner contract with Avnet Silica will contribute very positively to this trend. The IoT market has not developed as expected and until now we have not had any major break through although we are well positioned in the market and have many good customer relations and prospects. We will continue investing in in-house R&D and organic growth, in particular in the key verticals Smart Building and Environmental Supervision. Based on the successful acquisitions in the Network Services area we think that growth through M&A is the way forward in the area of IoT as well and Talkpool is looking at interesting targets.  Continuous efforts improve profitability Talkpool managed to generate a net sales growth from EUR 2 653 thousand in Q2 2016 to EUR 3 441 thousand in Q2 2017 which corresponds to a of 29,7 percent increase. The large increase is mainly explained by the acquisition of Camouflage and Technetix, contributing with net sales in profitable niche network services areas of approximately EUR 752 thousand in Q2 2017. In addition to this, the investments made to fuel the growth in Mexico and Germany showed result and revenue continued to steadily increase throughout the quarter. Thanks to reductions in cost of sales, Talkpool increased the gross profit with approximately 25 percent compared to Q1 2017 and 49 percent compared to Q2 2016. The focused and conscious efforts to reduce SG&A costs continued to bear fruit in Q2. In spite of being in the middle of Talkpool’s biggest acquisition ever, we managed to reduce the SG&A costs with another 6.5 percent in Q2 compared to Q1. In Q2 2017 EBITDA turned positive with EUR 86 thousand compared to an EBITDA of EUR -129 thousand in Q1. This is mainly explained by lower costs of sales and SG&A costs. The newly acquired companies, Camouflage and Technetix, even reached gross margins of over 30 percent. Also the previously loss making growth markets Mexico and Germany both left “the red zone” and reached break even at the end of Q2. EBIT for the group in Q2 reached EUR 67 thousand. Although EBITDA and cashflow turned positive in Q2, net earnings remained below zero. The net loss amounted to EUR -116 thousand mainly due to unusually high exchange losses on cash and bank accounts. The cash flow from operating activities was positive despite a negative result for Q2 and the total cash flow for Q2 2017 was positive by EUR 1 322 thousand mainly due to increase in borrowings. Q3 started off well as Camouflage signed the important operation & maintenance contract and Talkpool and its partners were awarded the prestigiuos IoT project for environmental monitoring in West Sweden where Talkpool will have a prominent role.

Acando acquires Daytona and Transformator Design

”The Acando Group continues to execute on our strategy “Technology Driven - Behavior Centric” says Carl-Magnus Månsson, CEO, Acando Group. ”With the acquisition of Daytona and Transformator Design, and a strong positive development at Acando and itch, we now take a leading position in the Northern European market.”   Combining the capabilities of Transformator Design and Daytona with Acando’s units specialized in strategy, transformation and digital development as well as Acandos’s innovation agency itch, will create a strong range of offerings within customer experiences. The new business will combine empathy and deep understanding for human needs with innovative and technical solutions. ”We started the design and -innovation agency itch almost two years ago, and we’re now taking the next step by creating a full-fledged Business Design Studio. We’ve acquired two of the best agencies in the field and by combining the competence of their teams with Acando’s and itch’s strategists, user experience designers and developers, we will be Sweden’s leading Business Design Studio from day one” says Mats Alerius, Senior Vice President, Acando. ”We’ve seen a strong demand for itch’s services, not least when combined with Acando’s strong ability to drive transformational change. The acquisitions give us both new width and depth in terms of capabilities, but we will also be able to create new and unique offerings” says Martin Deinoff, CEO, itch. The merge is initiated immediately and will continue throughout the coming months. There are similar existing operations in Norway and Germany within Acando, and further expansion plans are being evaluated. “Transformator Design is the one agency that has come to be most clearly associated with the Service Design-sector in Sweden. We now take a new exciting step entering a new context. Putting the human at the center is becoming continuously important for companies and organizations and they are looking for a partner with deep understanding of human needs as well as the capability to make change happen. As part of Sweden’s largest Business Design Studio with Acando as owner, we will to an even bigger extent than before, be able to contribute to a more human society using design as a tool” says Daniel Ewerman, CEO, Transformator Design. ”It’s not enough to just be able to talk about and design solutions today. You must also be able to actually realize strategies and concepts, through user-driven prototyping and with technique as a driver. That is something we have missed at Daytona during the last years – to be able to actualize ideas and to prototype to a deeper level” says Martin Ragnevad, CEO Daytona.

Aarne Aktan, CEO of Pihlajalinna: Pihlajalinna’s second quarter of 2017 fell slightly short of our expectations. The organic growth of 2.5 per cent in revenue was mediocre, and there was room for improvement in profitability. The second quarter was a strong one in the Primary and Social Care (P&S) segment. The profitability of Social and Healthcare Outsourcings improved as expected, and the profitability of Other Business Operations was better than expected. The second quarter was soft in the Private Clinics and Specialised Care (C&S) segment. The profitability of the segment was weakened by Private Clinics, Public Specialised Care as well as Dental Care. The profitability of Occupational Healthcare was gratifying. In digital services, Pihlajalinna’s remote doctor application has met with a favourable reception. We will continue our investments so that we will be able to launch new digital services and products during the rest of the year. After the end of the reporting period, we made three acquisitions supporting our strategy. We reinforced our imaging network to improve the care chain of our customers, acquiring the imaging companies Joen Magneetti and Sataman Röntgen in Joensuu and Kuopio, respectively. In Oulu, we acquired Caritas Lääkärit Oy to strengthen the start of our future new private clinic in the city. The acquisition supports our expansion in terms of both personnel and customer accounts. In May, the municipal councils of Forssa, Humppila and Ypäjä voted in favour of establishing a joint venture with Pihlajalinna to provide social and healthcare services for the region. The decisions have been appealed to the Market Court. The municipal boards of Forssa and Humppila have proposed in August to the municipal councils to revoke the procurement decision and to suspend the procurement procedure. The procurement decision made by the municipality of Hattula on its social and healthcare services was repealed by the Market Court in June, so the previously announced agreement will not be implemented. In Tervola, where we had already been chosen as a service provider, we unfortunately did not reach an agreement with the municipality on the production of social and healthcare services and their costs. We do not consider the postponement of the health, social services and regional government reform by one year to be a major issue in the scale of the reform as a whole. We firmly believe that the health, social services and regional government reform will be realised during this government term. The postponement, on the other hand, may refresh the municipal outsourcing market. Pihlajalinna’s outlook for 2017 unchanged Pihlajalinna’s revenue is expected to grow and adjusted operating profit (EBIT) to improve compared to 2016. In the financial year 2016, revenue was EUR 399.1 million and the adjusted operating profit (EBIT) was EUR 16.6 million. Financial reporting in 2017 Interim report January–September: Thursday 9 November 2017 Briefing Pihlajalinna Plc will hold a briefing for analysts and the media on Thursday 17 August 2017 at 10:00 a.m. in the Paavo Nurmi room at Hotel Kämp, Pohjoisesplanadi 29, 00100 Helsinki, Finland.

PERIOD 1 APRIL – 30 JUNE 2017 ·  Sales amounted to SEK 1,372 million, which was 9 % higher than last year (SEK 1,257 million). ·  Operating result amounted to SEK 110.5 (100.2) million. ·  Result for the period amounted to SEK 77.0 (67.0) million. ·  Earnings per share amounted to SEK 1.16 (1.01). ·  Cash flow from operating activities amounted to SEK 50.1 (88.6) million. PERIOD 1 JANUARY – 30 JUNE 2017 ·  Sales amounted to SEK 2,636 million, which was 10 % higher than last year (SEK 2,388 million). ·  Operating result amounted to SEK 153.7 (108.3) million. ·  Result for the period amounted to SEK 101.9 (62.4) million. ·  Earnings per share amounted to SEK 1.55 (0.95) kr. ·  Cash flow from operating activities amounted to SEK 83.7 (152.5) million. ·  Equity ratio amounted to 48.6 (45.8) %. ·  Net debt to equity ratio amounted to 61.7 (75.2) %. CEO COMMENTS April – JuneOur growth continues and sales increased 9 % including currency to SEK 1,371.7 million, which is a record for a second quarter. It is the 12th consecutive quarter of growth which we are proud of. Operating profit increased by 10 % to SEK 110.5 million, which is strong in view of the substantial investments we make in both new products and marketing. These are strong figures, especially as we expected a negative calendar effect in this quarter due to the fact that Easter occurred during the second quarter of this year. The balance sheet remains very strong, with an equity ratio of 48.6 %, and we also have a positive cash flow in spite of growth.  January – JuneSales increased by 10 % to SEK 2,635.9 million, which is an all-time high. There was also an operating profit increase of 42 % to SEK 153.7 million and profit after tax increased by a whole 63 % to SEK 101.9 million. Delightedly, all regions and all segments are showing growth. We also continue to grow with a positive cash flow, resulting in a very strong balance sheet where we reduced our net debt, have a low debt/equity ratio and an equity ratio of 48.6 %. The operating margin also improved compared with last year and amounted to 5.8 (4.5) %. The futureWe are now faced with some really exciting quarters and years. CRAFT Teamwear is now starting to take off and we have signed PEC Zwolle, the Finnish floorball association, Warberg Floorball Club and Lycurgus Volleyball Club, among other elite clubs and teams. We will over the next few quarters add additional clubs in Europe. At the end of August we will open our new Canadian warehouse for Cutter & Buck and Clique. We have also made a decision on new warehouses in Germany and Belgium and to automate parts of the warehouse in Italy. Right now, and even in January 2018, we will launch a record number of new products for ProJob and Jobman. In the first quarter of 2018, CRAFT shoes will also be out in the shops. Even Kosta is developing well and we will continue our investments there. We will also, as we previously reported, be starting extensive marketing in the USA at the end of this and next year. With everything that we’ve done, and everything that we do, we are well equipped and we will definitely continue our growth. In terms of earnings, I believe in continued growth. There can of course be single quarters which have lower growth, particularly if a lot of establishment costs end up in the same quarter. But we have now managed to achieve sales growth in 13 of the last 14 quarters, and improved operating profit in 11 of them. Even our operating result has improved significantly since we started our major investments for the future in 2014. From SEK 255 million 2015 to SEK 400 million 2016, and now on a rolling 12 months to SEK 445 million. There is a strong trend in terms of both sales and result. We stand strong in for the future and our journey has just begun!

Acando Interim report January 1-June 30, 2017

Statement by Carl-Magnus Månsson, CEO A continued healthy financial trend with strong growth and rising profits was posted for the first half of the year. Altogether, we grew our sales by 12 percent to SEK 1,234 m and increased profits 35 percent to SEK 130 m. At 10.5 percent, our operating margin is the highest ever for the first six months of the year. In the year’s second quarter, we grew our sales to SEK 613 m, our highest second quarter sales to date, despite the negative effect of fewer working days compared with last year. The positive financial trend is a result of our capacity to develop and thereby remain relevant for customers, partners and employees. Acando’s innovation survey was launched during the quarter, and clearly shows that many larger companies are focusing their innovation capacity on increasing their customer relevance in a world that is rapidly and continuously changing, not least due to all the possibilities opened by digitalization. Acando’s strategy of combining technology, as the driver, together with behavioral insights is thus becoming increasingly relevant. The acquisitions of Transformator Design and Daytona strengthen our capabilities in terms of understanding the customer perspective and securing capacity to design a full omnichannel customer experience, digital and analog. Altogether, this gives us a unique position from which we can not only support definitions of strategies with a strong customer focus, but are also able to realize these through transformative projects ranging from the creation of in-house digital capabilities to the realization of technical solutions. Our compiled expertise makes us unique in the Nordic market. Acando’s strategy of providing customers with a unique possibility for capitalizing on our partner relationships is based on a portfolio of strong, relevant partners and long-standing partner relationships. During the quarter, we expanded our partner portfolio to strengthen our capabilities in the retail/fashion segment and in the cloud-based business systems solution area, both of which are experiencing vigorous growth. More importantly, we were presented with the Partner of the Year award for Sweden by Microsoft for our ability to create innovative and transformative solutions based on Microsoft’s products and services. Moreover, Acando has once again been chosen as an Inner Circle Partner for Microsoft Dynamics, an exclusive global selection of Microsoft’s most strategic partners. Our success relies entirely on our employees’ ambition and capacity to create relations of trust with our customers and their employees. These relationships engender the security to challenge one another and, through shared experiences, abilities and skills, to identify innovative solutions and approaches. We are growing and take pride in the increasing numbers that wish to join us and to continue this quest of creating the most challenging and developing environment for those that have the desire and the courage to match. This report comprises information that Acando AB (publ) is obliged to make public pursuant to the EU Market Abuse Regulation and the Securities Market Act.

AQ Group AB (publ), interim report January - June, 2017

Second quarter, April- June 2017in brief · Net sales increased by 25% to SEK 1 077 million (860) · Operating profit (EBIT) decreased by 19 % to SEK 74 million (92) · Profit after financial items (EBT) decreased by 22 % to SEK 70 million (91) · Profit margin before tax (EBT %) 6.5% (10.6) · Cash flow from operating activities increased by 3 % to SEK 79 million (76) · Equity ratio 60 % (60) · Earnings per share after tax decreased by 23 % to SEK 3.20 (4.18) Six months, January - June 2017in brief · Net sales increased by 25% to SEK 2 079 million (1 661) · Operating profit (EBIT) decreased by 5 % to SEK 161 million (169) · Profit after financial items (EBT) decreased by 2 % to SEK 163 million (167) · Profit margin before tax (EBT %) 7.8% (10.0) · Cash flow from operating activities decreased by 44 % to SEK 94 million (168) · Earnings per share after tax decreased by 3 % to SEK 7.40 (7.64) A word from the CEO Market The second quarter was our 91st consecutive quarter with profit. AQ’s second quarter with a turnover exceeding a billion SEK. The highest turnover in the history of the group. We have increased our turnover every year since the start October 1, 1994 i.e. for 22 years. We are satisfied with the growth and cash flow is better than in the first quarter 2017, but we are not satisfied with the margin (EBT) 6.5%. We need to work on improving the margin. The organic growth for the quarter was 10.1% compared to 6.2% the second quarter of 2016. The second quarter of 2017 shows our margin sliding downwards, partly because of additional costs in conjunction with increasing utilization and partly because we haven’t succeeded in increasing our prices in the same pace as raw material prices have increased. It is important that we quickly adjust prices to our customers when prices of raw material are increasing. We still have work to do here. We are also intensifying our work to get our supplier base to be more competitive. Our goal is to have an EBT margin of 8%. As we have previously communicated, the second quarter of 2016 had a number of unusually profitable projects in telecom. There is an economic expansion in the industry. Several of AQ’s leading industrial customer show good growth. This partly explains AQ’s high organic growth in the second quarter. In parallel I believe that we are gaining market shares in several business areas. Gradually during the year, several of our production units have had increasing utilization rate and we see a need of increased investments in production capacity in several areas. We have signed an agreement to buy adjacent real estate to our production unit in Hungary. We are negotiating more production space in Poland and we are planning for expansion space in Mexico. This is obviously a good sign that our customers have a good order backlog and that our customers have confidence in AQ. We have had some late deliveries to our customers, which have cost a lot of money in express shipments, overtime and extra personnel. Late deliveries don’t only cost money, the biggest cost is that it affects our customers’ confidence and it’s contrary to our value “We are reliable” and intense improvement work is ongoing. The cash flow from operating activities during the second quarter 2017 was better than the first quarter 2017 and we are working to reduce the capital tied up in accounts receivable and inventory. There is still a pressure from customers to extend credit terms though. Acquisitions Gerdins was acquired on October 3, 2016. It is our biggest acquisition so far when it comes to turnover. The subsidiaries of Gerdins have been integrated into AQ’s existing business areas, the EBT margin is however still below AQ’s goal. We have gained competent and dedicated employees and exciting customers so we are looking positively at the future for “Gerdins” We are always looking at a number of acquisition opportunities. We would like to strengthen our presence and capabilities in the growth areas where we are already present. We also work to follow some of our important customers to completely new geographic regions. Organisation Our focus is always to adapt to customers’ requirements and real demands. It’s a strategy we will continue to follow, to be fast movers and adaptable no matter of market conditions. Our organisation is built on entrepreneurship and it is a foundation of our core values. Outlook My assessment is that we are gaining market shares in several areas and we are also entering new markets. However, one shall be aware of the fact that AQ is acting in a global competition with subsequent price pressure. With operations in 12 countries and more than 5 000 employees it is important for us to maintain our simplicity and speed in our decision making and to minimise bureaucracy which can easily occur in a larger organisation. AQ is well positioned for new acquisitions from a financial as well as from a management view. With strong relations to world leading customers and engaged employees I am looking positively at the future with continued growth with a stable profit level. An important part of this is our core values and our efforts to be a reliable supplier to leading industrial customers. Claes MellgrenCEO

The strong support from our owners has restored the balance sheet to healthy debt levels. This will enable us to continue the execution of Eltel’s new strategy with the goal to focus on our core competences and markets, reduce operational risk, leave non-core markets and increase efficiency. We will further develop our positions in the Group’s core business within Power and Communication in the Nordics, Poland and Germany, which represent approximately 90% of Eltel’s operations. The operations outside Eltel’s core business will be divested or ramped down. The transformation of Eltel is going according to plan. We have merged the power distribution and power transmission units in Power and the mobile and fixed communication units in Communication. During the summer, we divested the unprofitable part of our communication business in Poland and our business operations in Latvia. During the second quarter, net sales declined by approximately 10% to EUR 329.8 million. The decrease is mainly due to the ongoing discontinuation of our unprofitable non-core Power Transmission International business, and our decision to ramp down low-margin sub-station operations within the Power segment. Net sales in our core business – segment Power and Communication – declined by approximately 3% to EUR 297.3 million. The underlying market of our core business continues to be good, although we see temporary lower and delayed investment activity within the power transmission business, which contributed to lower net sales. In segment Communication, volumes both in fibre and mobile in Germany increased, while volumes in the Nordic market declined. Operative EBITA amounted to EUR -21.0 million. The operative EBITA in Eltel’s core business amounted to EUR 6.1 million, but the result in Power was weakened by lower net sales and costs for internal measures to increase efficiency. The non-core businesses accounted for a loss of EUR 22.5 million, including a negative contribution of EUR 18.4 million from Power Transmission International due to the ongoing ramp down of the business. During the first six months of 2017, EUR 26.4 million of the estimated total EUR 40 million of costs and provisions related to the ongoing discontinuation of this business was recorded. The transformation agenda for the remainder of 2017 and 2018 is clear. We will continue the organisational transformation in order to improve efficiencies and adapt the organisation to the new strategy to secure our long-term profitability targets. In addition, we continue our efforts to strengthen internal governance and control. By the end of 2018 we expect to see effects of synergies and growth within our core business areas.

Autoliv starts collaboration with Seeing Machines to develop Driver Monitoring Systems

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, in the United States 3,477 people were killed, and 391,000 were injured, in motor vehicle crashes involving distracted drivers in 2015 alone. The American Automobile Association also states that 21% of crashes in which a person was killed involved a drowsy driver. Autoliv and Seeing Machines have started to collaborate to address this issue by developing a state-of-the-art DMS that can detect distracted and drowsy drivers by accurately measuring eye and head position, driver attention and fatigue. The DMS will invoke action when a dangerous situation is detected or imminent. Reliable understanding of driver state will also enable Autoliv development of technologies critical for supporting highly autonomous driving functions, with safe hands-off-wheel operation. Within the collaboration, Autoliv will serve as the Tier 1 supplier to automotive OEMs to produce the driver monitoring systems for future awarded business. "Autoliv and Seeing Machines have teamed up to reduce distracted driver accidents," says Johan Löfvenholm, President, Autoliv Electronics. "We both share a passion for saving more lives, and together, we will create one of the most advanced driver monitoring systems in the world." “The collaboration between Seeing Machines and Autoliv is an excellent fit within our expanding partnership ecosystem” added Mike McAuliffe, CEO of Seeing Machines. “Both companies are technical leaders deeply committed to advancing safer driving through the development and deployment of our advanced DMS technologies for Automotive OEMs”.

Interim Report period from January 2017 to June 2017

       IMPORTANT EVENTS DURING THE PERIOD · On March 10th, the Company announced that the primary efficacy endpoints of the first part of its phase 2b study, in which the Vagitocin® gel was investigated for the treatment of vaginal atrophy, were not met. However, further analyses of the study data showed that the gel, both without and with the active ingredient (oxytocin), had a marked and statistically significant alleviating effect on the Most Bothersome Symptoms (MBS) after the twelve week treatment. To enter a clinical phase 3 programme, a new phase 2b study would be required. Hence, the Company has decided to focus on bringing the oxytocin-free gel to the market as a non-prescription product. · On May 17th, the Company announced that the results of the exploratory part of its clinical phase 2b study show comparable treatment effects to the first part (main study). In short, this means that no significant differences were found between placebo and oxytocin for any of the defined clinical endpoints, whereas the placebo gel gave a strong effect on the Most Bothersome Symptom (MBS). All study subjects of the placebo arm (10 out of 10) reported symptom relief and half of them were symptom free at the end of the treatment period. · At the AGM on the 18th of Mayt Leni Ekendahl and Marianne Östlund were elected as new board members. Arne Ferstad and Hans von Celsing were re-elected, Hans von Celsing as chairman. · InJune the Company closed a financing round of 13.4 MSEK (before issue costs) consisting of a preferential rights issue (12.3 MSEK) and a private placement (1.1 MSEK).As a result, the number of shares will increase from 20.6 million to 43.0 million. · On May 30th the Company announced that it has filed a patent application concerning the use of its vaginal gel for the treatment of symptoms associated with vaginal atrophy. The application was filed with The Swedish Patent and Registration Office. During the coming twelve months, the Company will decide in which additional countries the application will be filed. IMPORTANT EVENTS AFTER THE END OF THE PERIOD · On 1st of August the new shares issued in the latest financing will be transformed from BTA to ordinary shares. · On 14th of August the Swedish “Bolagsverket” informed the Company that the last lot of issued shares (1,808,332 shares) have been registered.  From the CEO During the second quarter much of the activities in Peptionic focused on defining and describing the new strategy of the Company, which is to launch VagiVital™ as a non-prescription product for the treatment of vaginal dryness/atrophy. VagiVital™ is the placebo gel that gave such a good effect in the treatment of the symptoms associated with vaginal atrophy in the most recent clinical study. The magnitude of the effect was on par with those reported from clinical studies with estrogens and estrogen-like products. This was both surprising and encouraging. Before we can launch VagiVital™ it has to be CE-marked. This, in turn, requires a quality system to be implemented in the Company (according to ISO 13485) and a so called Technical File to be produced and approved. The approval is issued by a so called Notified Body, which is our case is Lloyds Register Quality Assurance Ltd. (England). To realise our plans, additional capital is required. Hence, we closed a rights issue with preferential rights and a private placement in May-June. The gross proceeds of these two fund raisings were 13.4 MSEK and issue costs amounted to 2.5 MSEK. The rights issue with preferential rights was over-subscribed by 18 per cent, which indicates a positive attitude by the market towards the new strategy of the Company. This is encouraging and gives us energy and motivation to go forward towards a product launch. The proceeds are expected to cover the costs of obtaining the CE mark and for preparing and planning the first launch. In addition to investing time and resources on obtaining the CE mark, we will work diligently to develop winning strategies for the distribution and marketing of VagiVital™. Outside the Nordic countries we will look for partners. On our home market (Sweden/Nordic countries), we are evaluating different alternatives, but also here we may want to collaborate with well established companies in this product category. The interest for VagiVital™ among potential partners is at least as high as the interest for our previous candidate product containing oxytocin. VagiVital™ is a medical device product that requires a less complicated and less costly registration process than a drug. Also, VagiVital™ can reach the market much sooner (several years) than our previous candidate drug. Discussions with potential partners are well underway. In Peptonic, we have an exciting and work intensive autumn ahead of us. We will of course keep the market informed about how the work is progressing.

Cherry adjusts full-year forecast

Cherry AB (publ) shows continued strong development in all business areas with profitable growth. In December 2016, in connection with Cherry calling the option to acquire the remaining 51% of the shares in ComeOn Malta Ltd, the Group provided a forecast. The Cherry Group, together with acquired ComeOn, was estimated to generate total revenue for the full year 2017 of between SEK 2,600 and SEK 2,700 million, with an EBITDA of SEK 550 to SEK 600 million. The rapid merging of the online gaming operations to ComeOn! has resulted in intensive integration work and thus affected growth. Given that the merger has not yet reached a full positive effect on the Group's revenue and earnings, Cherry adjusts its forecast for the full year 2017. The Company now expects the Group to generate total revenue of approximately SEK 2,500 million in 2017 and EBITDA is expected to amount to approximately SEK 480 million. Cherry publishes its interim report for the second quarter on 24 August, 2017.

Results from extension study with C21 show safety, tolerability and indicate effects on lipid metabolism

The extension study, initiated in January 2017, was performed on a group of overweight men (BMI 30-35) and with a hip to waist ratio below 0.9 but otherwise healthy. In total 16 volunteers, whereof 8 were given 100 mg C21 and 8 were given placebo during a period of 8 days participated. The aim of the study was to evaluate safety and tolerability of C21 in a group with a potentially compromised metabolic situation and to investigate if markers of metabolic dysfunction could be affected by C21 during the short treatment period.  The results from the study verified that C21 is well tolerated and safe also in this group as there were no serious adverse effects noted or adverse readings from the laboratory analyses for a large number of biomarkers. In addition, the group receiving C21 demonstrated a tendency to lowering of plasma LDL (low density lipoprotein), the harmful form of cholesterol. Further detailed analysis are still ongoing.  “In view of the small size of the study one should be careful to draw far-reaching conclusions but it is encouraging that we with the support of the study results can formulate a hypothesis that C21 can have positive effects on lipid metabolism” says Professor Mika Scheinin, Principle Investigator for the study, University of Turku, Finland.  The outcome adds to the safety profile of C21 and is important for upcoming Phase IIa study where C21 will be tested on patients suffering from Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF).   For further information, please contactPer Jansson, CEOM: +46 709 17 47 46 or e-mail:  This is information which Vicore Pharma Holding AB is required to disclose under the EU Market Abuse Regulation and the Securities Market Act.

Ericsson sues Wiko for patent infringement

On August 14, 2017, Ericsson (NASDAQ: ERIC) sued smartphone maker Wiko, in the regional courts of Düsseldorf and Mannheim in Germany, for infringement of patents essential for 2G, 3G and 4G cellular technology, as well as implementation patents. Wiko has been infringing Ericsson’s intellectual property rights for six years without any license or compensation. Ericsson has tried to establish a fair, reasonable, and non-discriminatory (FRAND ) license agreement with Wiko since May 2013, but has not succeeded. As a last resort, Ericsson has decided to exercise its legal rights to enforce its patents against Wiko’s infringing products. Gustav Brismark, Chief Intellectual Property Officer at Ericsson, says: “Global sharing of technology and open standards are the force behind the smartphone revolution and have allowed new entrants, such as Wiko, to quickly build successful businesses. This ICT eco-system only works, however, if all market players respect the basic rules of FRAND licensing. It is unfair for Wiko to benefit from our substantial R&D investment without paying a reasonable license fee for our patented technology. "Our ambition has always been to reach a mutually fair and reasonable license agreement with Wiko, just as we do with all of our licensees.” Ericsson has one of the industry’s strongest intellectual property portfolios, which includes more than 42,000 granted patents worldwide. Ericsson’s patent portfolio covers 2G, 3G and 4G/LTE technologies, and the company plays a key role in the global organizations that are developing standards for 5G technologies.

IRLAB signs agreement with TCTC to conduct Phase-2 study with IRL790

The Phase 1b study regarding IRL790, which was concluded during spring 2017, provided positive and very valuable information about safety, tolerability, dosing and efficacy, supporting the planning of the upcoming Phase 2 study. This study aims to confirm efficacy indicated in the phase Ib study and further examine safety and tolerability of IRL790 in the treatment of Parkinson’s disease patients suffering from L-dopa Induced Dyskinesias (PD-LIDs), an indication with limited treatment options and big medical need. An agreement has been signed with TCTC, a Clinical Research Organisation (CRO), to conduct the study. Together with TCTC, IRLAB now has the organisation in place to conduct the Phase 2 study in the UK. “The results from Phase 1 and Phase 1b studies in patients with Parkinson’s disease and levodopa-induced dyskinesia in Sweden is promising for the continued development of IRL790. We have recently completed a feasibility analysis in the UK and found that UK clinics have a high clinical competence regarding Parkinson’s disease, a large patient base, and interest in conducting the Phase 2 study. We are looking forward to working with our colleagues at TCTC who have an extensive experience from conducting international clinical trials in neurodegenerative diseases”, says Joakim Tedroff, IRLAB’s chief medical officer (CMO). “TCTC is delighted to work with IRLAB on this study. There is a huge unmet medical need to improve the lives of patients with Parkinson’s disease and IRL790 is an exciting new potential treatment for patients with Parkinson’s disease dyskinesia.  We are very much looking forward to working with the IRLAB team and the UK investigators to deliver this important study”, says Susan McGoldrick TCTC’s CNS Project Director. About IRL790 IRL790 is developed for the treatment of PD-LIDs, involuntary movements that often follows treatment with levodopa, and PD-P, psychosis in Parkinson’s disease. In pre-clinical studies, IRL790 reduces involuntary movements that occurs after a period of treatment with L-dopa. Additionally, in pre-clinical studies, IRL790 has shown antipsychotic properties. The company believes that IRL790 thus has the potential to simultaneously treat both dyskinesias and psychosis in Parkinson’s disease.

Aptevo Therapeutics and Alligator Bioscience commence IND-enabling development activities for new bispecific immunotherapy candidate ALG.APV-527

Seattle, WA, and Lund, Sweden – August 17, 2017 – Aptevo Therapeutics Inc. (Nasdaq: APVO), a biotechnology company focused on developing novel immuno-oncology and hematology therapeutics, and Alligator Bioscience (Nasdaq Stockholm: ATORX), a biotechnology company developing antibody-based pharmaceuticals for tumor-directed immunotherapy, announced today that the companies have initiated CMC activities for the manufacturing of clinical material in preparation for a future investigational new drug (IND) submission for the bispecific immuno-oncology antibody ALG.APV-527. ALG.APV-527 was the subject of a collaboration agreement announced by the companies in July 2017 . It targets the co-stimulatory receptor 4-1BB and an undisclosed tumor antigen that directs the immune activation to the tumor area. 4-1BB is known to enhance the immune response to cancer through activation of tumor-specific T cells and is believed to be a promising target for new immunotherapeutic approaches. The bispecific antibody candidate could potentially have utility in the treatment of a broad spectrum of cancers over-expressing the tumor antigen, including breast, cervical, non-small-cell-lung, prostate, renal, gastric, colorectal and bladder cancers. “With CMC and IND enabling activities underway, our partnership with Aptevo is moving ahead rapidly”, said Per Norlén, Chief Executive Officer of Alligator Bioscience. “Having worked collaboratively to design and engineer ALG.APV-527, we are pleased to now announce its advancement into preclinical development. This bispecific antibody brings tumor directed immunotherapy to the next level. By making the immune activation dependent on binding to a tumor antigen we have created a candidate drug with potential for improved efficacy and fewer side effects.” “The timely progress we are making underscores our respective companies’ expertise in bispecific antibody engineering and we are very excited to begin the next phase of development of ALG.APV-527 and further demonstrate the elegance of our ADAPTIR technology platform”, said Marvin L. White, President and Chief Executive Officer of Aptevo.  “The robust and flexible nature of our ADAPTIR platform permits the development of bispecific antibodies with different mechanisms of immune system engagement.  Because ADAPTIR bispecifics are based on an IgG backbone, they have excellent stability and manufacturing characteristics, with traditional monoclonal antibody-like manufacturing properties – a key differentiator from other bispecific constructs.  As an emerging class of new therapeutics, bispecific antibodies may offer important technological advancements over traditional monoclonal antibodies, including the potential for more precise targeted therapy through enhanced functionality, potency and efficacy.  We look forward to advancing ALG.APV-527 towards IND submission and to further validating the utility of our ADAPTIR protein therapeutic platform.” For further information:Alligator BioscienceCecilia Hofvander, Director Investor Relations & CommunicationsE-mail: Aptevo TherapeuticsStacey Jurchison, Sr. Director, Investor Relations and Corporate CommunicationsPhone: +1 206-859-6628E-mail: This information is information that Alligator Bioscience AB (publ) is obliged to make public pursuant to the EU Market Abuse Regulation.

Voting results from Haldex’ Extraordinary General Meeting

Haldex held an Extraordinary General Meeting on August 17 in Stockholm, Sweden. Haldex has earlier today announced that the EGM resolved to approve the proposal by Knorr-Bremse, 54% of the shareholders were present at the EGM which represents 23,888,027 of the votes. Of these 15,489,074 refrained from voting, including ZF, 403,096 voted against the proposal and 7,995,857 voted for the proposal. "Let’s not exaggerate any disappointment that we now feel in the Board of Directors. Owners sometimes think and vote differently than the Board ant that is entirely in accordance with the rules of the game. Today's action by ZF is disappointing for Haldex because our main owner chooses to refrain from clarifying its interests and a minority of the shareholders, mainly short-term speculative owners, puts Haldex in a continued uncertain situation.", says Jörgen Durban, Chairman of the Haldex Board. As no new information was presented about Knorr-Bremse’s plans to address the antitrust issues, despite the fact that Knorr-Bremse's CEO Klaus Deller gave a speech, the Board continues to assess the likelihood of getting the deal approved as very low. The Board therefore adhere to its earlier decision not to support Knorr-Bremse’s bid as it would result in material harm for the company and contravene the Companies Act. The Board is to protect the interests of all shareholders. In this case, a few owners have voted on a proposal that benefits a minority of shareholders while it destroys long-term shareholder value.

Q2 comments from Robert Andersson, CEO A successful quarter with strong underlying developments Catena Media continued its strong development in the second quarter of 2017. Through our scalable business model, we managed to gain revenues that amounted to EUR 15.10 million, corresponding to a year-on-year revenue-growth of 58 percent. Furthermore, adjusted EBITDA was at an all-time-high of EUR 7.95 million, corresponding to an adjusted EBITDA margin of 53 percent. We referred 91,222 NDCs to our clients in the second quarter, an increase of 92 percent year-on-year and an increase of 13 percent compared to the first quarter. The strong development of this key performance indicator is a reflection that the underlying business development continues to be strong and healthy. Search revenues are at an all-time-high of EUR 11.53 million, an increase of 58 percent year-on-year, and an increase of 5 percent compared to the previous quarter despite a negative impact of EUR 0.3 million as a result of withdrawing from the Dutch market. Paid revenues amounted to EUR 3.11 million, an increase of 35 percent year-on-year but a decrease of 16% compared to the previous quarter due to sports seasonality and the ongoing shift to perpetual revenue models on paid media. Speeding up product innovation The second quarter has been characterized by the highest rate of product launches ever. The announcement and debut of the revamped JohnSlots website, one of Catena´s most important brands, has been a success with a significant increase in traffic. We are also proud to have launched our first e-sports site, called, which is a partnership with Gamerz, a global e-sports reality TV show.  In addition to this, we launched a new sports podcast in Sweden which quickly became a success.  Seasonal effects Historically, seasonal effects on revenues have been quite limited since online casino behaviour is typically less sensitive to seasonality. However, since an increasing portion our revenues are now generated from Sports, we will naturally start to experience more seasonal effects. Sports turnover is closely correlated with available sports events at any given time, and this summer is particularly slow due to lack of any big sports events.  Catena temporarily withdraws from the Dutch market Catena Media adheres to strict compliance standards regarding the operators to whom it supplies traffic through its affiliate network and operates in compliance with applicable laws. Recently, the Dutch Gaming Authority, KSA, decided to take a stricter approach to iGaming sites that target Dutch players, and as a result Catena Media decided to temporarily withdraw from the Dutch market to fully comply with applicable law.  Short term this will impact revenues negatively by approximately EUR 100-150 thousand per month, but longer term it puts us in a favorable position, if and when, the Dutch market re-regulates. The Upper House of Parliament is currently considering the Remote Gaming bill which aims to regulate online gambling.  Office expansion As a result of our fast paced growth, we have outgrown our office spaces in London, Malta and Serbia. Therefore, we have moved into brand new offices in both London and Serbia during the first quarter and we are now in the process of moving into our brand new headquarters in Malta. The office expansion enables us to continue building our already strong and multifaceted workforce, currently consisting of 239 engaged employees from over 30 countries. Strategic update Through both organic and acquired growth, Catena Media´s vision is to become the world´s number one provider of high-value iGaming leads. During the second quarter, Catena Media acquired three affiliate networks, including affiliate websites, accounts and associated agreements. In July, we acquired the award–winning sports affiliate and related affiliate assets. These acquisitions further cement our role as the leading consolidator in the affiliate market. In June, we were successful in raising EUR 50 million, the second tranche of our EUR 100 million bond. The proceeds will primarily be used for further acquisitions, and we are in ongoing talks with several potential targets. Our strategic decision to focus more on perpetual revenue has continued, and 64 percent of the revenues in the second quarter was generated from perpetual revenue share agreements, up from 51 percent in the first quarter. This has negative short-term effects on revenues and margins, particularly in paid media where upfront payments are typically higher, but longer term it is believed to generate more revenue per customer. As from the fourth quarter and onwards we expect to start seeing the benefits from this strategic shift in a more noticeable way. Regulated and near-regulated markets continues to be a core focus area for Catena Media, and it is estimated that approximately 60 percent of the revenue stems from licensed operators in regulated markets. If we include Sweden, which is likely to be regulated in the not too distant future, the regulated share would increase to over 70 percent. This shows that Catena Media is well prepared to face the ongoing regulatory changes happening across Europe at the moment. Also, our planned listing on NASDAQ Stockholm (Mid Cap) is progressing well and the aim is to complete this change of listing during the second half of 2017. Outlook With strong underlying developments and the sports season starting full throttle mid-August, the table is set for a very exciting second half of the year. We remain optimistic on our strategic, operational and financial development, and are confident that the we will continue to grow in the same successful way, both through organic growth and through acquisitions across existing and new geographic markets.

BerGenBio ASA: Results for the Second Quarter and Half year 2017

Richard Godfrey, Chief Executive Officer of BerGenBio, commented: “During the first half of 2017, BerGenBio has undergone substantial development and made important progress: the Company has completed a successful IPO; signed a clinical collaboration agreement with Merck & Co (MSD); and initiated a programme of Phase 2 clinical trials, which aim to demonstrate the clinical potential of BGB324, a first-in-class, selective, Axl inhibitor as a new treatment option for patients with difficult-to-treat cancers. Axl inhibition has the potential to prevent and reverse an essential survival mechanism that tumour cells employ to evade immune detection, resist therapy and spread (metastasise) to other parts of the body. BerGenBio’s leadership in Axl inhibition ideally positions the Company to address the major unmet medical need resulting from this common resistance mechanism. The Company has a clear strategy to develop BGB324 and other Axl inhibitors, and the funds from the recent IPO will enable BerGenBio to complete the four ongoing Phase II trials, with read-outs expected in the second half of 2018 representing important points of validation.” Operational Highlights · IPO completed, raising NOK 400 million from new and existing investors to fund further clinical development of BGB324 and pipeline programmes · BerGenBio shares began trading on OSE on 7 April 2017 under the ticker BGBIO · Clinical collaboration agreement signed with Merck & Co (MSD) to evaluate combination of BGB324 with KEYTRUDA® (pembrolizumab) · BGB324 – four Phase II clinical trials ongoing · Following compelling Phase Ib data reported December 2016, recruitment continues with BGB324 as a single agent therapy in acute myeloid leukaemia (AML) / myeloid dysplastic syndrome (MDS) · Following compelling Phase Ib data reported in November 2016, Phase II clinical trial continues with BGB324 plus TARCEVA® (erlotinib) in advanced EGFR-positive lung cancer patients · Sites active and patient recruitment ongoing for combination study of BGB324 plus KEYTRUDA in triple negative breast cancer patients · Protocol accepted and site activation underway for combination study of BGB324 plus KEYTRUDA in advanced lung cancer patients · Two Phase II investigator-sponsored studies initiated · First patients dosed in Phase Ib/II trial of BGB324 in combination with docetaxel in advanced lung cancer · First patients dosed in randomised Phase II trial of BGB324 in combination with targeted therapy or KEYTRUDA in advanced melanoma · Clinical and scientific presentations at global cancer conferences · Phase II melanoma study design and preclinical evidence supporting BGB324’s potential to re-sensitise lung and breast tumours to checkpoint inhibitors presented at American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) Annual Meeting in April · Anti-tumour activity of BGB324 demonstrated in vitro and in patients with high-risk MDS presented at the American Society for Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual Meeting in May · Non-dilutive grants to support clinical trials of BGB324 · NOK 24 million IFU grant from Innovasjon Norge · Awarded a grant from the Research Council of Norway under the programme for user-driven Research based Innovation (BIA) to support investigator-sponsored clinical trials Financial Summary (NOK million) Q2 2017 Q2 2016 YTD2017 YTD2016 FY 2016 Operating revenues  -    -    -    -    -  Operating expenses  33,8  66,5  99,6  87,2  131,6Operating profit (loss)  -33,8  -66,5  -99,6  -87,2  -131,6Profit (loss) after tax  -34,1  -66,2  -99,1  -86,5  -129,8 Basic and diluted  -0,70  -225,83  -2,41  -307,27  -419,68earnings (loss) pershare (NOK)Cash position end of  440,3  105,2  440,3  105,2  161,8period Presentation and Webcast Details A presentation by BerGenBio’s senior management team will take place at 10:00 am CEST at: Thon Hotel Vika Atrium, Munkedamsveien 45, 0250 Oslo Meeting Room: Tjuvholmen The presentation will webcast live and the link will be available at in the section Investors/Reports and presentations/Webcasts.

Medivir initiates clinical study of birinapant in combination with KEYTRUDA® (pembrolizumab) in patients with treatment-refractory solid tumours

Stockholm, Sweden — Medivir AB (Nasdaq Stockholm: MVIR) today announces that the first patient has been enrolled in the company’s phase I/II study of birinapant in combination with the anti-PD-1 therapy KEYTRUDA® (pembrolizumab), which is marketed by MSD (known as Merck & Co., Inc, Kenilworth, NJ, USA in the US and Canada). The objectives of the study are to evaluate the safety, tolerability and preliminary efficacy of this combination in patients with treatment-resistant solid tumours.About the studyThe multicentre, single arm, open label study, which is primarily being run in the US, will be conducted in two parts. In the initial dose escalation (phase I) part of the study, the objective is to identify the recommended phase II dose of birinapant for use in combination with KEYTRUDA®. This is to be achieved by administering increasing doses of birinapant in combination with the approved dose of KEYTRUDA® to cohorts of up to 6 patients with refractory solid tumours.Once the recommended phase II dose has been identified, the second part of the study will begin. The primary objective of the phase II part is to evaluate the safety and tolerability of birinapant in combination with KEYTRUDA® in several cohorts. Each cohort will be made up of patients with the same treatment refractory tumour type. An important secondary objective in the phase II part is the preliminary evaluation of the efficacy of the combination in each of the cohorts.Under the terms of the agreement between Medivir and MSD (through a subsidiary), MSD will provide KEYTRUDA® for this study at no cost to Medivir. Medivir retains full rights to birinapant. Additional details were not disclosed.“The approval of immune check-point inhibitors constituted a remarkable leap forward for many cancer patients, but there still remains a substantial opportunity to improve outcomes. Recent preclinical data have provided a strong scientific rationale for combining birinapant with immune checkpoint inhibitors such as KEYTRUDA®. We are therefore very pleased to enrol the first patient in this combination study, which will allow us to determine its safety and tolerability, as well as its potential efficacy, in patients with solid tumours who have no further treatment options,” said John Öhd, Chief Medical Officer at Medivir.About birinapantBirinapant is a parenterally administered bivalent peptidomimetic of the SMAC protein (Second Mitochondria-derived Activator of Caspases) and is therefore known as a SMAC mimetic compound. Birinapant binds to and degrades Inhibitors of Apoptosis Proteins (IAPs), which both enables apoptosis (programmed cell death) in tumour cells, and activates the immune system, enhancing its attack on the tumour. Birinapant has the potential, through its actions on tumour cells and cells of the immune system, to improve the treatment of several types of cancer when used in combination with other drugs including checkpoint inhibitors and DNA damaging agents.For further information, please contact:Ola Burmark, CFO Medivir AB, mobile: +46 (0) 725 480 580John Öhd, CMO Medivir AB, mobile +46 (0) 725 296 200Medivir AB is obliged to make this information public pursuant to the EU Market Abuse Regulation.

Telecommunications: Composite enablers for future smart cities

The construction market already presents a huge growth opportunity for the composites industry. But while many drivers for the increased use of composites in building – such as high strength, lightweight and design freedom – are well established, an emerging factor which will further favour their adoption is connectivity. As increasing urbanization and digitalization place more and more demands on telecommunications networks the use of RF transparent materials will become key. Rapid urbanization is a global megatrend shaping the future of our world. Already, more than half of the world's population lives in urban areas, and this is expected to rise to 70% by 2025, with the majority of this growth taking place in Africa and Asia.   This accelerating urbanization will lead to the creation of more 'megacities' of 10 million and more inhabitants. By 2030, there are expected to be at least 40 such megacities, with seven out of the top ten being in Asia. These urban areas will be the powerhouses of the global economy, exerting an economic strength greater than that of many countries.   As powerful economic hubs and centres for innovation and productivity, cities will continue to attract millions of people seeking greater opportunities, more prosperity and a better quality of life. Managing this growth in a sustainable way will create huge challenges and require immense investments in infrastructure and services. Close to $78 trillion is expected to be spent on infrastructure worldwide between 2014 and 2025, according to PricewaterhouseCoopers.  The future is smart One focus for future investment is telecommunications. Future cities will be smarter, implementing digital and data-driven solutions to help them operate more efficiently and provide new services for residents and businesses. This will only be possible with an effective and reliable telecommunications network. By 2035, analysts predict that in addition to computers and smartphones there could be 1 trillion connected devices worldwide (the envisaged Internet of Things) and current networks will be insufficient. A new digital infrastructure and fast, high capacity networks will be essential to meet ever growing needs for data transmission.   The 5th generation mobile networks, 5G, scheduled for roll out from 2020 onwards, are the proposed answer. Operating at higher frequencies than the current 4G/LTE standard, 5G will offer faster data transmission of 20 GB/s and support at least 1 million connected devices per square kilometer. With a reduced latency of less than 1 ms, 5G will also guarantee the safety of autonomous vehicles. On the downside, the higher frequency (3.5-78 GHz) 5G signals will have shorter (millimeter) wavelengths and will not travel as far as the previous longer wave signals. A dense network of antennas will be needed to boost the 5G signal locally. Integrating these thousands of unsightly antennas into city infrastructure, and preferably hidden from view, will be a challenge. A second issue relates to signal attenuation within buildings. All RF signals lose strength as they travel through intervening materials (to an extent determined by the material), but shorter wavelength signals are attenuated more rapidly than those with longer wavelengths. The trend towards better insulated, more energy efficient buildings is already exacerbating this problem and it will become even more of an issue with the move to 5G. With these factors coming into play, when selecting materials for the next generation of city infrastructure architects and planners must now also take into account 5G signal penetration. And this is where RF transparent composites can earn an expanded role. Composites and city infrastructure  High strength and stiffness, low weight, corrosion resistance, low maintenance requirements, thermal stability and design freedom are some of the properties which make composites attractive construction materials for future cities. Composites are already extensively used in the manufacture of energy efficient windows and doors, facades and cladding, bridges and bridge reinforcements, street lighting and furniture, and rail and metro applications such as platforms and access structures. Composites also enable modular building concepts for the creation of affordable housing. In addition, glass fiber composites possess good dielectric properties and have been used in telecommunications applications such as base stations and radomes for many years, where they offer minimal signal attenuation. Exel Composites has a long history of supporting the telecommunications industry with innovative composite solutions. We also have extensive experience in developing composite structures for demanding applications in the building and construction market. Recognising the challenges facing these sectors in the future urban environment, and aware of the possibilities that composites offer to both, Exel is participating in a groundbreaking initiative aimed at developing 5G-enabled city infrastructure. Smart light pole network LuxTurrim5G is a joint R&D project focused on Smart City Digital Ecosystem Creation, bringing together 10 innovative companies and three respected research institutes. The project partners, including Nokia Bell Labs, Teleste, Vaisala, Tekes, Premix, Lammin Windows and Doors, C2 SmartLight, Tampere University of Technology (TUT) and VTT, offer a breadth of expertise spanning RF technologies, materials, urban planning and construction, and innovation management. The ambitious three-year €15 million programme aims to develop enablers for the future smart city, making big data capacity available for residents and businesses through a network of 'smart light poles.' As well as providing energy-efficient lighting, the composite poles with integrated miniturized antennas and base stations will create a high-capacity 5G data transmission network. Sensors, information displays, cameras and other devices will also be incorporated in order to trial a variety of novel services and business concepts. Composite light poles are a clever way to disguise the thousands of antennas which will be needed for the 5G network. As a leading manufacturer of composite antenna radomes and structures for GSM, 3G and 4G base stations, and utilising many years of experience in designing and manufacturing poles for airport approach lighting systems and other specialized applications, Exel has proposed a concept for the light pole based on a three pultruded sections. The project will also construct test houses using different materials to compare the signal penetration through composites compared with conventional building materials and structures. One building element designed to serve as a wall structure has already been manufactured. This is based on a sandwich panel comprising a PIR foam core with composite skins and incorporates composite I beams and window frames. The excellent thermal insulation properties of glass fiber composite means this type of building element meets the requirements of energy efficient (lower lambda) buildings, while also allowing RF signal penetration. A pilot project is currently underway in the Finnish city of Espoo, where Nokia is providing a 5G test bed network for use by the consortium partners. Materials testing will start in August. Different composite materials and constructions will be studied to determine the best combinations for optimal signal penetration.   A huge opportunity The increasing importance of RF transparent materials for next generation city infrastructure opens up a new market opportunity for the composites industry far beyond the scale of current construction applications. While the total market for composites in the global construction industry was valued at €11.3 billion in 2016, the market for 5G built infrastructure is expected to be worth €160 billion by 2025.   To seize this opportunity all players in the composites supply chain need to be involved.

BAKKAFROST: Operational EBIT of DKK 459 Million for the Second Quarter of 2017

The total volumes harvested in Q2 2017 were 18.4 thousand tonnes gutted weight. Bakkafrost trans­ferred 1.9 million smolts in Q2 2017. In Q2 2017, Havsbrún sourced 163.1 thousand tonnes of raw material. The farming segment made an operational EBIT of DKK 489.5 million for Q2 2017, which corresponds to NOK 33.50 per kg. The VAP segment made an operational EBIT of DKK -54.5 million for Q2 2017. The salmon spot prices have been on record high levels since 2016 and this continued in Q2 2017. The high salmon spot price is positive for the farming segment. As in previous quarters, when the salmon spot prices are high, the VAP segment had negative margins in Q2 2017. The combined farming and VAP segments made an operational EBIT of DKK 435.0 million for Q2 2017, which corresponds to NOK 29.77 per kg. The FOF segment (fishmeal, oil and feed) made an operational EBITDA of DKK 47.8 million for Q2 2017. Commenting on the result, CEO Regin Jacobsen said: “Bakkafrost’s three segments had all a very high activity level in the second quarter of 2017. Havsbrún received a record high volume of 163.1 thousand tonnes of raw material. The Farming segment har­vested a record high volume of 18.4 thousand tonnes gutted weight, and the VAP segment produced 5.3 thousand tonnes gutted weight. Bakkafrost focuses on raising a sustainable premium quality salm­on with emphasis on animal welfare and on preserving the environment. In May 2017, farming site A-71 Funningsfjørður was ASC certified, and Bakkafrost aims to have all its farming sites ASC certified in 2020.” In accordance with Bakkafrost’s dividend policy and the resolution of the Annual General Meeting 2017, Bakkafrost paid out DKK 8.70 (NOK 10.69) per share in April 2017. The total dividend payment was DKK 425.1 million (NOK 522.5 million). In Q2 2017, Bakkafrost’s full-time employees from 2016, still employed at Bakkafrost, have received bonus shares with a total value of 2% of their salary in 2016. In total, Bakkafrost has allocated 19,631 shares to its employees. The total allocation amounted to 4.7 million and was based on the closing share price on the allocation day, 29 May 2017. The Bakkafrost Group’s net interest bearing debt amounted to DKK 559.7 million at the end of Q2 2017. Bakkafrost had undrawn credit facilities of DKK 718.5 million at the end of Q2 2017 and the equity ratio was 64% at 30 June 2017. OUTLOOK Market For the last year or so, the salmon market has been affected by a decline in supply. The main factors behind this are the harmful algal bloom in Chile in February 2016 and the biological issues in Norway. The negative effect of the Chilean algal bloom on supply of salmon continued into H1 2017. Expecta­tions are that global supply of Atlantic salmon will rebound from decline in H1 2017 to an increase of around 8-10% in H2 2017. The latest update from Kontali Analyse estimates the global supply of Atlan­tic salmon to increase around 2% in 2017, compared to -6% in 2016. The market place is one of Bakkafrost’s most significant risk areas. To diversify the geographical market risk, Bakkafrost sells its products to all the largest salmon markets in the world, USA, the Far East, Europe and Russia. Farming The outlook for the farming segment is good. The estimates for harvesting volumes and smolt releases are dependent on the biological development. The biological situation is Bakkafrost’s most important risk area. The confirmed presence of patho­genic ISA-virus at farming site A-73 in March, draws attention to the importance of a high quality vet­erinary system to reduce the biological risk. Harvest of the fish at farming site A-73 was finished on 12th April 2017, and the site is now in fallow for a period of minimum 6 months. Bakkafrost focuses on biological risk continuously and has made several new investments and procedures to diminish this risk. The investments in producing larger smolts will gradually reduce the time needed in the fjords to farm the salmon. This is expected to reduce biological risk and increase the capacity. The capacity growth from this investment program will appear in harvested volumes gradually until 2021. Bakkafrost expects to harvest 53,500 tonnes gutted weight in 2017. Bakkafrost expects to release 11.5 million smolts in 2017, compared with 11.7 million smolts in 2016 and 11.3 million smolts released in 2015 – smolts released by Faroe Farming before becoming part of the Bakkafrost Group are included. The number of smolts released is a key element of predicting Bakkafrost’s future production. Sea lice is an area, which has demanded much effort and is a part of the biological risk. Bakkafrost focuses on using non-chemical methods in treatments against sea lice. In Q4 2016, Bakkafrost invested in a service vessel, M/S Martin, which uses lukewarm seawater treatment against sea lice. M/S Martin started operation in Q1 2017. In addition to M/S Martin, Bakkafrost invested in another service vessel, M/S Róland, in Q1 2017. M/S Róland is equipped with the same system as M/S Martin and is expected to start operation in September 2017. Furthermore, Bakkafrost will increase the use of lumpfish in farming in 2017. VAP (Value added products) Bakkafrost has signed contracts covering around 58% of the expected harvested volumes for the rest of 2017. This corresponds to an expected contract coverage of around 40% for the full year 2017. VAP contracts are at fixed prices, based on the salmon forward prices at the time they are agreed and the expectations for the salmon spot price for the contract period. The contracts last for 6 to 12 months. The long-term strategy is selling around 40-50% of the harvested volumes of salmon as VAP products at fixed price contracts. Selling the products at fixed prices reduces the financial risk with fluctuating salmon prices. The market price for contracted VAP products follows a more stable pattern instead of short-term fluctuations as in the spot market. The price level on long-term contracts are on a higher level than ever before, there are, however, no indications that this price level should decrease significantly. FOF (Fishmeal, -oil and feed) The outlook for the production of fishmeal and fish oil is dependent on the availability of raw material. The ICES 2017 recommendation for blue whiting is 1,342 thousand tonnes, compared with 776 thou­sand tonnes in 2016. Recommendations for herring and mackerel quotas have increased as well. The production of fishmeal and fish oil will most likely increase due to higher quotas and better availability. The major market for Havsbrún´s fish feed is the local Faroese market including Bakkafrost’s internal use of fish feed. Havsbrún’s sales of fish feed in 2017 are expected to be at 85,000 tonnes. Investments In June 2016, Bakkafrost announced a five-year investment plan from 2016 to 2020. The total invest­ments for the period are DKK 2.2 billion, including maintenance CAPEX. Investments of around DKK 100 million in the two service vessels, M/S Martin and M/S Róland during 2017, are not included in the investment plan. The purpose of the investment plan is to continue to have one of the most cost conscious value chains in the farming industry, to carry out organic growth, increase flexibility and reduce the biological risk to meet the future consumers’ trends and to be more end-customer orientated. Bakkafrost aims at being self-supplied with smolts at a size of 500g each. The benefits are a shorter production time at sea as well as reduced biological risk. To reach this goal, approximately half of Bakkafrost’s total investments from 2016 to 2020 will be in hatcheries. Both the harvest operation and the VAP production in the new harvest/VAP factory at Glyvrar have started operation. The harvest operation started in the summer of 2016, and the VAP production started in Q1 2017. The old harvest factories in Klaksvík and Strendur are closed, as well as the old VAP factories in Fuglafjørður and Glyvrar. There are some extra costs during the start-up period, but the investment is expected to result in operational savings of DKK 70-90 million per year with gradual effect from 2017. Bakkafrost has started upgrading the harvest operation in Vágur, Suðuroy. The upgrading cost is ex­pected to be around DKK 35 million. Bakkafrost plans to increase the value of offcuts from salmon harvested and processed in the new harvest/VAP factory. In 2017, Bakkafrost will invest in a new salmon meal and salmon oil plant, located in Fuglafjørður and operated by Havsbrún. The new salmon meal and salmon oil plant is expected to start operation in late 2017 and is expected to have positive margins in 2018. The FOF segment will also invest in a new feed line, which will increase the capacity of the feed production. Free cash flow from operations, existing financing facilities and partly new financing if advantageous will finance the investments. The dividend policy will be unchanged. Financial Favourable market balances in the world market for salmon products and cost conscious production will likely maintain the financial flexibility going forward. A high equity ratio together with Bakkafrost’s bank and bond financing makes Bakkafrost’s financial situation strong. This enables Bakkafrost to carry out its investment plans to further focus on strengthening the Group, M&A’s, organic growth opportu­nities and fulfil its dividend policy in the future.

Smart Eye Interim Report 1 January–30 June 2017

Summary Q2 2017 · Net revenue amounted to TSEK 12,114 (10,486), equivalent to an increase of just over 15%. · The operating result was TSEK –9,306 (–3,867), which is in line with the determined expansion with investments in primarily personnel, marketing and sales activities. · The result after financial items was TSEK –9,435 (–4,240). · Profit per share was negative. · Cash and cash equivalents amounted to TSEK 43,244 as at the end of June. · During the period, the establishment of a sales office in the USA proceeded according to plan, with the recruitment of two sales executives with considerable experience from sale of advanced technical systems. · Smart Eye was awarded a new design win from a European premium vehicle manufacturer after the end of the period. January–June 2017 · Net revenue amounted to TSEK 19,747 (16,077), equivalent to an increase of just over 22% compared to the previous year. · Operating profit amounted to TSEK –18,469 (–7,688). · The result after financial items was TSEK –18,717 (–8,464). · The result after tax per share was negative. Comments from the CEO Q2 2017 shows that Smart Eye is continuing to develop according to plan. Thanks to intensive cooperation with our customers, we achieved a 74% revenue increase for the Applied Solutions business area. After the end of the reporting period, we were awarded our third design win. The automotive industry is making major investments to develop technology to improve active safety. A large number of procurement procedures are being held by strategically important vehicle manufacturers. The companies which win these contracts in these early development phases have good opportunities to continue to develop together with OEM. We consider Smart Eye to be well-positioned to be one of the nominated companies, which in turn indicates stable income flows for the Applied Solutions business area for many years to come. For many years, the automotive industry has worked to increase traffic safety. The initial focus was on developing passive safety, which concerns minimising the consequences of any accidents that occur. Today, there is also focus on increasing active safety by implementing systems to reduce the risk of accidents even occurring. The aim is for traffic accidents to be something we can read about in the history books. This will require autonomous vehicles. Autonomous vehicles are defined at five levels, of which level 1 means that the vehicle alerts the driver of any risks, and level 5 signifies that the vehicle is completely autonomous, with no interaction with the driver being required. Until recently, no vehicles had achieved higher than level 2, but this year the first level-3 vehicles were presented by the automotive industry. This major new step means that in certain specific situations, the driver does not have to steer the car at all. Smart Eye believes that driver monitoring will be a central element of autonomous vehicles up to and including level 3. The result will be cars that can adjust their rhythm and distance to other vehicles, but that are also completely autonomous in certain traffic situations. The system is a major step forward for traffic safety. The work on Smart Eye’s two design wins is running according to plan and we are an attractive collaboration partner, thanks to good access to and knowledge of the latest AI technology. In August, Smart Eye was awarded a third design win from an OEM in the premium segment that Smart Eye previously has not worked with. Together with a leading Tier 1 supplier, we will deliver a Driver Monitoring system for a vehicle model based on the vehicle manufacturer’s next production platform. The model is expected to go into production in 2019. The company and Research Instruments products enable customers to measure, monitor and analyse human behaviour in various interesting situations. Development in the university world, space research and the aviation industry, for example, is positive, and Smart Eye is continuing to consolidate itself as a reliable supplier of eyetracking systems to help customers to understand human behaviour. The high investment rate within Research Instruments is in accordance with the long-term plan. This plan requires us to be there for our customers, in order to give on-site support when needed. This means that we are very happy to welcome our first American employees in Detroit!

Brighter's main patent has been approved by United States Patent and Trademark Office.

The United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has granted Brighter's main patent in the United States, which includes Actiste and its unique ability to integrate all functions in a patient's activity chain into one and the same device, i.e. measuring and analyzing a biomarker (e.g. blood glucose), and injecting medicine (e.g. insulin). “The approval of our main patent means that an important piece in our global expansion plan is now in place. The potential in the United States is enormous given the large number of people living with diabetes there and across the entire American continent. And although we chose to initially launch the solution in Sweden, Indonesia and Thailand, the US, as well as major parts of Latin America, are important markets that we expect to expand into in the future," says Truls Sjöstedt, Brighter's CEO and founder. The grant concerns Brighter's main patent, which protects the company's unique integration of all functionalities, i.e. measuring and analyzing a biomarker and injecting medicine into one and the same instrument. Actiste is the company's first application based on this, which means a mobile-connected and fully integrated tool for diabetic blood sampling, blood sugar analysis and insulin injection. The US Patent Office's decision implies that the Company has all rights to the patent and its associated patent family. In order to be able to sell Actiste on the US market, an approval of the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) is required. In the development of Actiste, Brighter has taken into account American standards and partly developed its ISO 13485 quality system for the development and production of medical devices to ensure that it also complies with FDA processes and standards. This means that Brighter can apply for FDA approval and/or clearance without further investment in adapting the design of Actiste, in systems and document management. Brighter's patent strategy is based on the main patent and where the company's ongoing research and development, resulting in new patents, complements and strengthens the company's intellectual property protection, which in turn extends the life of existing patents. According to the International Diabetes Federation today, about 10.8 percent of the United States population is suffering from diabetes, which corresponds to approximately 29 million people. This means that the country has the most diabetic in the world, after China and India. In addition to the 29 million people already living with diabetes in the country, it is estimated that there are about 86 million Americans who are in a precursor to the disease, which leads to an increased risk of suffering from diabetes and other chronic diseases. The US market is considered to be the largest and most profitable market for medical devices.
