Silver Spring, MD and Englewood, CO, June 12, 2018: United Therapeutics Corporation (Nasdaq: UTHR) and XVIVO Perfusion, Inc., a subsidiary of XVIVO Perfusion AB (STO: XVIVO), today announced that the use of XVIVO’s ex-vivo lung perfusion (EVLP) technology will be incorporated into the Silver Spring, Maryland laboratory of Lung Bioengineering Inc., a subsidiary of United Therapeutics’ public benefit corporation subsidiary Lung Biotechnology PBC. “I am excited about trying to make more life-saving use of donated lungs via XVIVO Perfusion’s pioneering technology,” said Martine Rothblatt, Ph.D., Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of United Therapeutics. “United Therapeutics’ impressive history of developing and delivering innovative and effective therapies for severe lung diseases makes them the ideal partner for XVIVO Perfusion in our quest to prevent mortality due to organ shortages,” said Dr. Magnus Nilsson, Chief Executive Officer of XVIVO Perfusion. Lung Bioengineering has agreed to purchase multiple XVIVO Perfusion System (XPS™) machines from XVIVO Perfusion for use in its Silver Spring EVLP laboratory, while XVIVO Perfusion agreed to provide training and supplies for use of the machines to re-evaluate donated lungs that have initially been deemed unsuitable for transplant directly following explant from the donor. In addition, Lung Bioengineering and XVIVO Perfusion agreed to cooperate and collaborate in promoting the use of EVLP services that could increase the supply of transplantable lungs to address needless patient deaths on the transplant waitlist. About XPS XPS™ is an integrated system that provides clinicians with the flexibility to evaluate lungs before transplantation by means of a standardized and simplified procedure. The XPS System with STEEN Solution™ allows marginal quality lungs that initially failed to meet standard of care transplant criteria to be perfused and ventilated at normothermic conditions, thus providing an opportunity for surgeons to reassess transplant suitability. XPS and STEEN Solution are used worldwide with good clinical results. The XPS and STEEN Solution have already been CE-marked and thus approved for sales on the European market, and are also approved for sales in Canada and Australia. In May 2018, XVIVO Perfusion submitted a premarket approval (PMA) application to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the XPS with STEEN Solution. The NOVEL Extension Clinical trial, which completed enrollment in 2017, constitutes the basis of the company’s PMA. The NOVEL Extension study, which completed enrollment in June 2017, involves follow-up of the patients for up to one year. XVIVO Perfusion’s PAS (Post Approval Study) required by the FDA for all approvals includes a total of 126+126 patients that will be followed for three years. The inclusion of all patients for the PAS was completed in late 2017. In March 2014, an FDA Advisory Panel voted unanimously 10-0 that the XPS™ System with STEEN Solution met the requirements for Humanitarian Device Exemption (HDE) approval by proving safety. In August 2014, XVIVO Perfusion received HDE approval from the FDA for the XPS with STEEN Solution for use in flushing and temporary continuous normothermic machine perfusion of initially unacceptable excised donor lungs during which time the ex-vivo function of the lungs can be reassessed for transplantation. HDE approval entails certain restrictions, including a limitation such that no more than 8,000 patients may be treated per year under HDE approval and that separate institutional review board approval may be required for treatment. Upon approval, a PMA would no longer entail any such restrictions. About United Therapeutics United Therapeutics Corporation is a biotechnology company focused on the development and commercialization of innovative products to address the unmet medical needs of patients with chronic and life-threatening conditions. About Lung Bioengineering Lung Bioengineering is part of United Therapeutics’ wholly-owned Lung Biotechnology PBC public benefit subsidiary, which is chartered with the express purpose “to address the acute national shortage of transplantable lungs and other organs with a variety of technologies that either delay the need for such organs or expand the supply.” Lung Bioengineering owns and operates a laboratory in Silver Spring, Maryland, dedicated to performing centralized ex-vivo lung perfusion procedures designed to provide extended preservation and assessment of lungs otherwise deemed unsuitable for transplant. Website: About XVIVO Perfusion XVIVO Perfusion AB is a medical technology company which develops solutions and systems for assessing and preserving organs outside the body and for selecting usable organs and maintaining them in optimal condition pending transplantation. The company is headquartered in Gothenburg, Sweden, and has one office in Lund, Sweden and one office in Denver, USA. The XVIVO share is listed on Nasdaq Stockholm and has the ticker symbol XVIVO.

Nordic Nanovector Announces Betalutin® has been granted Fast Track designation in the US for Follicular Lymphoma

Oslo, Norway, 12 June 2018 Nordic Nanovector ASA (OSE: NANO) announces that the US Food & Drug Administration (FDA) has granted Fast Track designation to Betalutin® (177Lu-lilotomab satetraxetan) for the treatment of patients with relapsed or refractory follicular lymphoma (FL) after at least 2 prior systemic therapies. Lisa Rojkjaer MD, Nordic Nanovector CMO, commented: “We are pleased to have been granted Fast Track designation for Betalutin®. This designation is based on the promising safety and preliminary efficacy data in patients with relapsed/refractory indolent non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma from the first part of the LYMRIT 37-01 study, and highlights the potential of Betalutin® to be a new therapeutic option for these patients. We are now focusing the PARADIGME trial on 3L CD20-refractory FL patients, a population in urgent need of new therapies, and look forward to working with the FDA to advance the development of Betalutin®”.   PARADIGME is a global randomised Phase 2b clinical trial comparing two Betalutin® dosing regimens (15MBq/kg Betalutin® following 40mg lilotomab pre-dosing; 20MBq/kg Betalutin® following 100mg/m2 lilotomab pre-dosing) in 3L FL patients. PARADIGME aims to enrol 130 patients across 80-85 sites in approximately 20 countries. The primary endpoint for the study is overall response rate (ORR) and secondary endpoints include duration of response (DoR), progression free survival (PFS), overall survival (OS), safety and quality of life. An initial efficacy and safety data read-out for PARADIGME is targeted for the first half of 2020. About Fast Track designation Fast Track is a process designed to facilitate the development and expedite the review of drugs to treat serious diseases and fill an unmet medical need. The purpose is to get important new drugs to the patient earlier. The designation provides the opportunity for more frequent meetings with the FDA over the course of drug development. In addition, the Fast Track programme allows for Rolling Review, which enables a company to submit individual sections of its Biologic License Application (BLA) for review as they are ready, rather than waiting until all sections of the BLA are complete, as well as for eligibility for Accelerated Approval and Priority Review if relevant criteria are met. -End- For further information, please contact: IR enquiries Malene Brondberg, VP Investor Relations and Corporate Communications Cell: +44 7561 431 762 Email: International Media Enquiries Mark Swallow/David Dible/Isabelle Andrews (Citigate Dewe Rogerson) Tel: +44 207 638 9571 Email: About Betalutin® Betalutin® is a tumour-seeking anti-CD37 antibody (lilotomab) conjugated to a low-intensity radionuclide (lutetium-177). CD37 is highly expressed in B-cell non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL), representing a novel therapeutic target. Betalutin® is internalised in tumour cells and prolonged exposure of the nucleus to radiation destroys DNA leading to tumour cell death. Betalutin® also has a crossfire effect limited to a radius of 40 cells, which destroys surrounding tumour cells. Betalutin® has shown promising efficacy and tolerability in the Phase 1/2a LYMRIT 37-01 clinical study in relapsed/refractory follicular lymphoma (R/R FL) and is currently in a pivotal Phase 2b trial, PARADIGME, in third line (3L) FL patients who are refractory to standard-of-care anti-CD20-based therapy (including rituximab). About Nordic Nanovector Nordic Nanovector is committed to develop and deliver innovative therapies to patients to address major unmet medical needs and advance cancer care. The Company aspires to become a leader in the development of targeted therapies for haematological cancers. Nordic Nanovector's lead clinical-stage candidate is Betalutin®, a novel CD37-targeting antibody-radionuclide-conjugate designed to advance the treatment of non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma (NHL). NHL is an indication with substantial unmet medical need, representing a growing market forecast to be worth nearly USD 20 billion by 2024. Nordic Nanovector intends to retain marketing rights and to actively participate in the commercialisation of Betalutin® in core markets.   Further information about the Company can be found at

5G on a roll, cellular IoT deployments ramping up – Ericsson Mobility Report

Commercial rollouts of 5G and larger than previously forecasted deployments of cellular IoT are focal points in the latest edition of the Ericsson (NASDAQ: ERIC) Mobility Report. The forecast for cellular IoT connections has nearly doubled since November 2017. It is now expected to reach an estimated 3.5 billion in 2023, driven by ongoing large-scale deployments in China. New massive IoT cellular technologies such as NB-IoT and Cat-M1  are fueling this growth, giving service providers opportunities to improve efficiencies and enhance customer value. Mobile operators have launched more than 60 cellular IoT networks worldwide using these technologies over the same underlying LTE network to support a diverse range of use cases. In North America, these cases are centered on logistics and fleet management while in China it is smart cities and smart agriculture. First commercial launches of 5G this year North America is expected to lead the 5G uptake, with all major U.S. operators planning to roll out 5G between late 2018 and mid-2019. By end of 2023, close to 50 percent of all mobile subscriptions in North America are forecast to be for 5G, followed by North East Asia at 34 percent, and Western Europe at 21 percent. Globally, major 5G deployments are expected from 2020. Ericsson forecasts over 1 billion 5G subscriptions  for enhanced mobile broadband by the end of 2023, accounting for around 12 percent of all mobile subscriptions. Mobile data traffic is estimated to surge by eight times during the forecast period to reach close to 107 exabytes (EB) per month – a figure that is equal to every mobile subscriber in the world streaming full HD video for 10 hours. By 2023, more than 20 percent of mobile data traffic worldwide is expected to be carried by 5G networks. This is 1.5 times more than the total 4G/3G/2G traffic today. Like previous mobile access technologies, 5G is expected to be deployed first in dense urban areas with enhanced mobile broadband and fixed wireless access  as the first commercial use cases. Other use cases will come from industries such as automotive, manufacturing, utilities, and healthcare. Fredrik Jejdling, Executive Vice President and Head of Business Area Networks, says: “2018 is the year 5G networks go commercial as well as for large-scale deployments of cellular IoT. These technologies promise new capabilities that will impact people’s lives and transform industries. This change will only come about through the combined efforts of industry players and regulators aligning on spectrum, standards and technology.” First-generation, 5G data-only devices are expected from the second half of 2018. The first commercial smartphones supporting 5G in the mid-bands are expected early next year, while support for very high spectrum bands is expected in early to mid-2019. The Ericsson Mobility Report also features articles on network performance through the eyes of customers, smart manufacturing, machine intelligence in network management, and the importance of securing the right spectrum for 5G.

Caverion reaches settlement in cartel investigation with the German Federal Cartel Office

Caverion reaches settlement in cartel investigation with the German Federal Cartel Office Caverion has settled for its part with the Bundeskartellamt (German Federal Cartel Office) the cartel case investigated by the authority since 2014. The investigation concerns several companies providing technical building services in Germany. Caverion Deutschland GmbH (and its predecessors) has been found to have participated in anti-competitive practices between 2005 and 2013. Caverion Deutschland GmbH will be imposed a fine of maximum EUR 40.8 million. The final amount of the fine will be confirmed by the decision of the Bundeskartellamt in due course. The fine will be booked as an expense in 2018 and will be paid shortly after the issuance of the decision. Caverion has prepared financing alternatives and will inform about the chosen alternatives as and when the final decisions in the matter have been made. Caverion has also reconfirmed the EBITDA calculation principles related to the fine with its lending parties. “The investigation has now been concluded for our part and the uncertainty around the matter has ended. We have given our full support to the Bundeskartellamt from the outset and have fully cooperated during the investigation. We are pleased that a settlement could be reached and the matter is closed with the Bundeskartellamt,” says Ari Lehtoranta, President and CEO. Caverion has made very significant efforts to promote compliance in order to avoid any infringements in the future. As part of its compliance programme all employees must complete an e-learning module and further training is given across the organisation. All employees are required to comply with Caverion’s Code of Conduct, which sets zero tolerance for anti-competitive practices, corruption, bribery, or any unlawful action. “Ethical conduct is the cornerstone of Caverion’s operations and we continue to have a strong focus in further enhancing our compliance programme. Any breaches of the Code of Conduct are totally unacceptable in Caverion and should never happen again,” says Ari Lehtoranta.  Any relevant information on any potential third party claims related to the above matter will be disclosed as required under the applicable regulations. Guidance for 2018 unchanged Caverion’s guidance for 2018 remains unchanged: “Caverion estimates that the Group’s revenue for 2018 will decrease compared to the previous year (2017: EUR 2,275.8 million). Caverion estimates that the Group’s adjusted EBITDA will more than double in 2018 (2017: EUR 25.8 million).” Adjusted EBITDA = EBITDA before items affecting comparability (IAC). The fine and there-related legal and other costs will fall under “Items affecting comparability (IAC)” in category (4) i.e. “other items that according to Caverion management’s assessment are not related to normal business operations”.

Saab’s New Adjustable Camouflage Announced

The new Barracuda Adjustable Mobile Camouflage System is designed to operate in more than one environment. The platform integrated system is made out of panels and is known as a “uniform” because it is tailored to the vehicle. Some of the panels are adjustable and include other colours. A woodland system can quickly be more urban by changing light green to grey. A winter uniform can be adjusted to spring or deep foliage by changing some panels to green and brown. “The new Adjustable MCS is developed to meet the requirements from modern, fast moving maneuver forces that operate in contested domains and are quickly changing terrain. From rural to urban in the same day,” says Görgen Johansson head of Saab’s business area Dynamics.  Barracuda’s advanced camouflage technology products have already been exported to more than 60 countries worldwide. Saab offers a unique package of tailor-made camouflage systems and force protection solutions that decrease the enemy’s ability to detect and engage. These solutions protect personnel, vehicles and base infrastructure against hostile sensors and enemy target acquisition. Barracuda camouflage solutions offer multispectral protection. Everything from ultra-violet, visual, near infrared, short wave infrared to thermal sensors and radar. Built-in thermal radiation protection reduces the operating temperature inside vehicles and increases crew comfort, firing accuracy, and fuel efficiency.

Stena Line confirms plans for its 3 new Irish Sea ships

Last year Stena (Stena Line’s parent company) announced a new build contract for a new generation of RoPax ferry vessels, Stena E-Flexer, with planned deliveries during 2020 and 2021.  Stena has ordered the construction of six new vessels from the AVIC Shipyard in China and the plan is to locate three of these ships on Stena Line´s Irish Sea routes. The other three will be chartered out to external parties by Stena Line’s sister company Stena RoRo. Stena Line’s CEO Niclas Mårtensson said: “Our Irish Sea routes are strategically very important to Stena Line and our customer, with the freight market between Ireland and UK experiencing significant growth over the last five years. That’s why we have invested almost £200m in our ports and vessels across the region to improve and grow our capacity to offer a frequent, reliable and high-quality service for our freight and travel customers.   The deployment of three new vessels is a tangible example of our strategic growth plan for the Irish Sea. I’m delighted to confirm that the first of our new vessels will be deployed on the Holyhead - Dublin service planned for early 2020. Furthermore, I can also confirm that two other vessels will be assigned to our Liverpool – Belfast service planned for spring of 2020 and early 2021. The new vessel being deployed will have capacity for 1 000 passengers, 120 cars as well as 3 100 freight lane meters delivering 4 daily sailings with an estimated crossing time of approximately 3.5 hrs. Ian Davies, Stena Line Trade Director Irish Sea South commented: “Freight volumes have surpassed the Celtic Tiger peaks of 2007 and we are confident that this upward trend will continue. 2017 was a record year for Stena Line in the Irish Sea where we carried over 800,000 freight units on our routes to and from the Island of Ireland. We welcome the addition of the first of our new generation RoPax vessels on Holyhead - Dublin. It will significantly increase freight capacity and raise the service standards for travel and freight customers” Also for region Irish Sea North, the new vessels are the basis for continued growth. Paul Grant, Stena Line Trade Director commented: “This is a significant boost for our popular Belfast – Liverpool service. The two new ships will be the biggest ships ever to operate on the Belfast – Liverpool service and will increase capacity for freight and travel customers as well as raising the service standards. Our onboard cabin concept will be enhanced offering comfortable and relaxing day and overnight crossing options. The ships will be ‘drive-through’ making the loading and disembarkation processes faster and smoother for vehicles.” Paul Grant added: “This expansion programme comes on the back of the recent purchase of our Superfast ships on the Belfast – Cairnryan service which not only enables Stena Line to deliver a high-quality product for freight and travel customers now but also lays the foundation for continued future growth in the region.” E-Flexer Series Ship Stats Length:            214,5 m  Draught:         6,4 m  Breadth:         27,8 m  Capacity:         3100 lane meter + 120 cars, 927 passengers (ex crew), 175 cabins No of decks:   3 + car deck on dk 7  Free height:    5,2 m on dk 3+5  Engines:          2 x V12 4-stroke diesel  Speed:             22 knots 

Saab Launches a New Barracuda Arctic Camouflage Net

The Arctic environment is extreme and very special compared to other environments due to the climatic conditions whilst snow can have a wide variety of characteristics. Barracuda Arctic Camouflage Net is a two-sided camouflage net that enables quick and flexible operation to meet changes in the surrounding environment. One side is purely white and the other side is both white and shades of green/grey. This makes it possible to operate in amongst different colours of snow, at both high and low altitude environments.  “In the new threat scenarios we can see in the near future, everything is contested and complex whilst sensors operating outside the visual spectrum have proliferated. Opponents can challenge us in all domains and across the full electromagnetic spectrum. When information becomes a weapon, the one who wins the battle of signatures is at a distinct advantage. With the new Barracuda Arctic net you can be flexible,” says Görgen Johansson head of Saab’s business area Dynamics.  Barracuda’s advanced camouflage technology products have already been exported to more than 60 countries worldwide. Saab offers a unique package of tailor-made camouflage systems and force protection solutions that decrease the enemy’s ability to detect and engage.

KRY raises $66m in funding round

KRY ( ), the digital healthcare provider that lets you see a healthcare professional within 15 minutes via your smartphone or tablet, today announces a $66m (€53m) Series B funding round led by international venture capital firm Index Ventures with participation from existing investors Accel, Creandum, and Project A. KRY is built by patients for patients in light of the highly strained healthcare systems around the globe. Offering a more accessible and convenient digital healthcare service, KRY has in under two years had over 350 000 patient meetings in Sweden, Norway and Spain and grew by 740% in 2017, making it the largest digital healthcare provider in Europe. KRY currently accounts for over 3% of all primary care doctor visits in Sweden and has over 300 clinicians working in the service. In March 2018 KRY launched an online psychology service and is now the largest provider of CBT-treatments in Sweden. KRY was founded in Sweden, the European country currently spearheading the development of digital healthcare, allowing digital healthcare providers to be part of the publicly funded healthcare system. Johannes Schildt, KRY CEO and co-founder, comments: "We are going to make the world a healthier place by providing equal access to hassle-free high quality care – regardless of where you live or who you are. We are happy that Index Ventures and our other investors share that great ambition. Using digitalization we will push through a paradigm shift in healthcare. From being expensive, reactive and system oriented we will make healthcare abundant, proactive and patient focused.” KRY will use the investment to continue building its world class team in order to further expand geographically - initially to the UK and France, deepen penetration in existing markets, expand its medical offering and reach its goal of becoming the world’s leading healthcare provider by combining medical expertise with state-of-the-art technology.   Martin Mignot, Partner at Index Ventures, adds: “KRY offers a unique opportunity to deliver a much improved healthcare to patients across Europe and reduce the overall costs associated with primary care. KRY has already become a household name in Sweden where regulators have seen first-hand how it benefits patients and allowed Kry to become an integral part of the public healthcare system. We are excited to be working with Johannes and his team to bring KRY to the rest of Europe.” How KRY works KRY allows patients to have a video consultation with a KRY-employed healthcare professional via their mobile phone or tablet, rather than a physical appointment. Patients can download the KRY app - available on iOS and Android - and select a suitable time for a video-based doctor’s appointment. Prior to the appointment, the patient describes their symptoms in writing, uploads relevant pictures, and responds to symptom-specific questions. At the scheduled time, the doctor calls the patient through the app to start the video consultation.

Aptahem and Seattle Children's Research Institute partner to study experimental sepsis drug

Dr. Adrian Piliponsky, a scientist in Seattle Children’s Center for Immunity and Immunotherapies, has more than 15 years of experience investigating inflammatory dysfunction associated with sepsis. He will lead this collaborative research project, aimed at providing a better understanding of how Aptahem’s new drug can prevent dysregulation of the immune response to bacterial infection, and thus prevent damage of organs and tissues that can lead to high mortality rates in patients with sepsis. “Research advances led by Seattle Children’s have identified how certain cells of the immune system shape the body’s response to a bacterial infection, leading to the serious complications that develop as sepsis worsens,” said Piliponsky. “This research lays the groundwork for the collaboration with Aptahem, in which we will have the opportunity to study a new therapeutic approach to preventing this process and stopping sepsis before it ever threatens life.” Seattle Children’s Research Institute, the research arm of Seattle Children’s Hospital, is one of the top five pediatric research centers in the U.S., with over 300 faculty who study a wide range of pediatric disorders, from basic bench science to clinical trials. Aptahem, a Swedish-based biotech company, is committed to finding effective therapies that will benefit patients suffering from inflammation, such as those affected by sepsis. Their primary drug candidate, Apta-1, is designed to prevent life-threatening organ and tissue damage in sepsis patients by uniquely targeting abnormal reactions seen in both the coagulation and inflammatory systems in multiple critical conditions. “We are on our way to redefining the treatment of sepsis with our drug candidate Apta-1, and it is great to have found a research partner in Seattle Children’s that shares our dedication to this. This research collaboration will deepen our knowledge of the Apta-1 mechanism and lead to a better patient understanding, as well as enable us to later access patients, clinical expertise and American key opinion leaders but may also result in other new opportunities,” said Mikael Lindstam, CEO of Aptahem. “We are eager to follow the research at Seattle Children’s, and in parallel, drive our clinical development forward by later this year to prepare an application to start our first clinical trial in humans.” For further information:Mikael Lindstam, CEO, Aptahem ABTel: + 46 (0)766-33 36 99E-mail: Forward-looking statementsThis communication contains forward-looking statements, consisting of subjective assumptions and forecasts for future scenarios. Predictions for the future only apply as of the date they are made and are, by their nature, as is research and development work in the biotechnology segment, associated with risk and uncertainty. With this in mind, the actual outcome may deviate significantly from the scenarios as described in this press release. About AptahemAptahem AB (APTA) is a biotechnology company that develops aptamer-based pharmaceuticals for the treatment of life-threatening conditions in which a combination of coagulation and inflammation are involved.

The rebrand marks the completion of a restructure of the global marketing communications group under CEO Adam Graham, following his appointment in November 2016 and the creation of a new board. All of the network’s 15 agencies, which includes brands such as Channelzero, Ranieri and TRUTH have been rebranded to include RYVL alongside their respective names. Adam Graham, CEO comments: “Clients are looking for a unified experience and we’re breaking down all the silos and creating a new group model without the fiefdoms, politics and layers of suffocating bureaucracy that have caused the well-documented problems of today’s big ad networks. “We believe our agile, lean, technology-centric approach will deliver exactly what clients are crying out for.” RYVL plans an aggressive acquisition strategy; the network will focus on buying complementary agencies, where there is no competition in local markets, to eradicate the problem of competing agency brands focusing on individual agency P&Ls instead of working as one global team. Future acquisitions will be increasingly targeted on technology-centric businesses that offer higher value services to end clients. RYVL plans to scale the business though a matrix organisational structure with regional and discipline leads reporting to Graham. The group will adopt RYVL as the operating name with immediate effect. Shareholder approval will be sought, to change the name of the company, at an Extraordinary General Meeting to be scheduled at a later date.

Paint Hit Celebrates 1 Million Downloads!

MAG Interactive today announced that their latest mobile game, Paint Hit , has already reached more than one million downloads on the App Store and Google Play. Shortly before the game’s announcement at the beginning of June, Paint Hit download numbers skyrocketed, surpassing the one million download mark just one day after the official launch. At the moment it holds the #1 spot on the Google Play casual games chart in the USA. “We are known for our strong presence in the word and trivia games categories, but the successful launch of Paint Hit proves that we were on to a really interesting concept within the hyper casual games market,” says Daniel Hasselberg, CEO of MAG Interactive. “We are blown away by the results after the launch and can’t wait to see how far Paint Hit will go.” Thanks to MAG’s product development process’ focus on early user and market testing, the strong potential of the Paint Hit concept was discovered quickly and it was decided to speed up the launch schedule and release the game worldwide after a very short testing period. This is the second global release from the company in two weeks, with both Paint Hit and Word Domination games showing strong results across mobile stores. In Paint Hit players shoot paint balls to color spinning towers over hundreds of increasingly challenging levels. With each paintball throw players colour a part of the tower, making it increasingly difficult to hit uncoloured portions with the next attempt. If a shot lands on an area of the tower that they’ve already painted, they lose the round. Additionally, players must face a boss tower every few levels that pushes their accuracy skills to the limit and makes victory taste that much better. Fast-paced, frantic painting fun is balanced out with calming ambient music - perfect for concentrating on that critical clean shot in this super casual game. About MAG Interactive MAG Interactive AB (publ) is a leading Swedish developer and publisher of casual mobile games for a global audience. The company reaches over 10 million monthly active players with a portfolio consisting of ten successful games that have generated over 200 million downloads in total.

Inwido acquires Finnish Profin Oy

Profin is a family business with its roots in Northern Finland. The company combine traditional craftsmanship and modern technology to create highly qualitative products that are designed to withstand the harsh climate of the north: high-quality sliding doors, windows, and doors. Over the past decade, Profin has become synonymous with high-quality sliding doors and is the market leader in this segment in Finland. In addition to its home market Finland, Profin also exports to several other EU countries, Japan and Russia. “Profin complements our Finnish brands very well with a more premium position on the market. A key opportunity has been discovered in the fast growing luxury segment dominated by panorama window sizes and sliding doors currently only operated in Finland by Inwido’s existing brand Klas1 and Profin” says Håkan Jeppsson, President and CEO at Inwido. “From the beginning, our aim has been to manufacture high-quality windows and doors that last for decades, or even centuries – the entire life span of the building. After 40 years as a family business we look forward to become part of the Inwido family and Europe´s largest window supplier,” says Mikko Haapala Managing Director Profin. The purchase price is in line with Inwido’s regular multiples. The final purchase price is contingent on Profin reaching certain financial milestones in 2018. The acquisition is financed by available credit facilities.

Stena Line re-deploys three ships to strengthen the route network

"We are now implementing a strategically important development to further strengthen three of our major transport corridors. Demand for capacity is increasing and we constantly evaluate our business as the market develops and our customers’ demands. Because we have built-in flexibility in our business, we can be agile and implement these types of changes in our network with short notice”, says Stena Line's CEO Niclas Mårtensson. New tonnage on Göteborg-Frederikshavn Stena Line now takes the next step in the growth strategy on the Göteborg-Frederikshavn route. The RoPax vessel Hammerodde will be taken into operation in the middle of September, replacing Stena Gothica. “We will have a product better suited for both our freight customers and passenger’s needs on this route. We will open up for car passengers on Hammerodde which will mean increased capacity on the passenger side. In conjunction with the change, we will also concentrate all traffic to Denmark at Masthuggskajen, which will increase availability and service for our customers”, says Tony Michaelsen, Trade Director of Region Denmark. Hammerodde was acquired from the Bornholm shipping company Faergen by Stena about a year ago and will switch to a Stena Line name in due course. Sister ships strengthen Travemünde-Liepaja In the middle of September, Stena Gothica will return to her former route Travemünde-Liepaja where she will operate together with her sister ship M/V Urd. "We have strong growth on our routes connecting the Baltics with Scandinavia and Germany/West Central Europe. Stena Gothica will be an important addition in which we will be able to offer our customers a standardised product on all departures with two sister vessels, which will facilitate our freight customers´ transports and meet the market demand for freight capacity", says Erik Thulin, Trade Director in Baltic Sea North. Four permanent RoPax vessels on Karlskrona-Gdynia Stena Gothica replaces Stena Nordica who will be placed on the Karlskrona-Gdynia route in October, after the charter of M/V Gute is over and the ship returns to Gotlandsbolaget. Karlskrona-Gdynia is a strategically important corridor between Sweden and Poland that has been growing steady during recent years. "Growth is still strong between Karlskrona and Gdynia, and with Stena Nordica twice as big as Gute, we will be able to offer our customers even better accessibility. In addition, Stena Nordica has a double tier configuration, which gives significant time gains during loading and unloading. Stena Nordica will also complement Stena Baltica in a good way as they are similar vessels, which means that we will be able to offer our customers an efficient RoPax concept on all four vessels, as well as a strong passenger concept on Stena Vision and Stena Spirit, says Marek Kiersnowski, Trade Director, Baltic Sea South.

Loss limits have thus far only been used by gambling companies in monopoly position. Next fall, the Åland-based gambling company Paf will become the first gambling company in international markets to introduce a hard cap for gaming losses. The loss limit is only one of the company’s many responsible gambling measures, which include identifying risk behaviour and contacting customers to provide them data about their gaming habits in order to prevent problem gambling. During 2017, Paf increased the number of customer contacts to prevent problem gambling by almost 500 percent since the previous year, from roughly 1,900 to roughly 9,400 contacts.- We will continue presenting personal gaming history graphs to our customers and encourage them to use the tools we provide online for voluntarily setting gaming limits that match each customer’s individual conditions, CEO Christer Fahlstedt says. Hopes for a collective loss limit Paf is one of many gambling companies that aspire to gain a license in the Swedish market when the market is opened after re-regulation on January 1, 2019.- We suggested a collective hard cap for the entire market in our official comment letter regarding the re-regulation of the Swedish market. Although our suggestion for the whole market was not employed as such, we choose to take the next step now and hope that the authorities will follow and introduce an obligatory hard cap. The reputation of the gambling business is at a low, and concrete measures need to be taken in order to regain the trust of the public.- We don’t want to see people’s lives destroyed because of gambling addiction. There has to be a way back. We hope that Paf’s new hard cap will take us in the right direction, Christer Fahlstedt says. Profit loss for Paf Another reason for introducing an annual loss limit is that since Paf’s profit is distributed to public community projects, it is not acceptable that the money should come from persons who may, for example, have engaged in criminal activity in order to finance their gambling.- This action means that Paf will lose about 5 percent of its income. But we believe that this loss of profit can be accepted by the people of Åland whom our owner represents.- At the same time, it is our mission to generate a reasonable profit annually, and introducing a hard cap set some more pressure on us to recruit new customers who play at a sustainable level. The customers that reach the 30,000 euro limit can naturally play at any of our competitors after reaching the limit, but we hope that being shut out from us will be a warning signal for those who have a gambling problem, perhaps even prompting them to seek help. Among those who have reached the limit are also those who don’t have a problem, but who can afford to play with high stakes.- We will lose these customers, but for us the annual loss limit is still something we want to commit to. The good sides simply outweigh the bad, Fahlstedt says. The loss limit at will enter into force on September 1, 2018.

THQ Nordic announces intention of a directed share issue of B shares

FORTUM CORPORATION INVESTOR NEWS 13 JUNE 2018 19.00 EEST Fortum has won the right to build 110 MW of solar capacity in a Russian Capacity Supply Agreement (CSA) auction. The power plants are to be commissioned during the years 2021-2022 and will receive a guaranteed power price corresponding to approximately EUR 150 per MWh for a period of 15 years. In the same auction, the Fortum-Rusnano wind investment fund (Fortum's ownership 50%) has won the right to build 823 MW of CSA-supported wind capacity. The wind parks are to be commissioned during the years 2019-2023 and will receive a guaranteed power price corresponding to approximately EUR 60-90 per MWh for a period of 15 years. In June 2017 the Fortum-Rusnano wind investment fund was awarded the right to build 1,000 MW of wind power to be commissioned by 2022, 50 MW of which is currently under construction. The investments decisions related to the above mentioned capacities will be made on a case-by-case basis. Fortum’s previously communicated maximum equity commitment is RUB 15 billion (approximately EUR 215 million). The equity commitment covers the now awarded solar capacities and Fortum's share of the wind capacities awarded to the Fortum-Rusnano wind investment fund in 2017 and 2018. In the longer term, Fortum seeks to maintain an asset-light structure by forming potential partnerships and other forms of co-operation.

E-commerce about to reshape our cities

With e-commerce turnover increasing by 10-15 per cent per year, there is an ongoing structural shift in retail supply chains. From being a relatively predictable behaviour in respect to place and time, shopping has become far more complex and offers new challenges to urban planners, retailers and logistics companies. Challenges include supplying individual customers rather than replenishing stocks in stores, managing returns, and offering a selection of delivery options. "E-commerce adds convenience and enables new behaviours, for example that people order a surplus of sizes and models and return what does not fit or what they dislike. This implies that the fitting room is moving from in-store to people’s homes", advises Robert Sommar, transport- and logistics expert at Sweco. Robert is one of the authors of the Sweco report Signed, Sealed, Delivered – Analysing the Impact of E-commerce on Urban Areas. The total effect of increased e-commerce remains unclear, but inefficiencies in applied solutions will lead to unnecessary increase in traffic load and pollution. Retail space will probably be reinvented and traditional shops might be replaced by showrooms. Today’s structure and function of warehouses, terminals and collection points, as well as the logistics function in apartment buildings and individual homes may alter considerably due to adaptations to e-commerce. “The inefficiency of today’s solutions highlights the need for innovative thinking to identify solutions for efficient distribution principles and supply chain strategies and design. Such solutions need to be well integrated into city structures”, concludes Robert Sommar. Background The report is part of a series of insight reports called Urban Insight written by Sweco experts on various aspects of urban development from a citizen perspective. Read the full report:

Ericsson, Intel and China Mobile achieve 3GPP-compliant, multi-vendor Standalone 5G NR interoperability

Ericsson (NASDAQ: ERIC) and Intel, together with China Mobile Research Institute and China Mobile Jiangsu Company, have successfully demonstrated the first 3GPP-compliant, multi-vendor Standalone (SA) 5G New Radio (NR) call – accelerating the commercial deployment of standard-based 5G networks. The 3GPP Release 15 5G NR SA specifications were completed on June 13, 2018 enabling Standalone 5G NR with user and control plane on a 5G next-generation core network. The Non-Standalone and SA releases share the same physical layer specifications. The successful interoperability test marks another milestone for the commercialization of the newly finalized 5G NR SA standards. The partners have conducted live Interoperability Development Testing (IoDT) of 3GPP-compliant SA 5G NR technology at the Ericsson Lab in Beijing, China. The live IoDT operating at 100MHz on 3.5GHz mid-band used Ericsson’s 5G NR base stations and Intel’s 5G NR UE (Intel® 5G Mobile Trial Platform) prototypes. Fredrik Jejdling, Executive Vice President and Head of Business Area Networks, Ericsson, says: “Successfully completing the first 3GPP-compliant Standalone 5G NR call marks another milestone with our ecosystem partners on the path to 5G commercialization, building on our years of research and standardization. Together, we’re delivering on our commitment to realize a standard-compliant and easily deployable technology that will bring benefits to our customers and end users.” Asha Keddy, Vice President and General Manager Next Generation Standards, Intel, says: “Intel’s ongoing collaboration with Ericsson and China Mobile and our achievement of 3GPP-compliant Standalone (SA) 5G New Radio (NR) multi-vendor interoperability will help to prepare the industry for the deployment of 5G NR SA networks. As 5G networks begin to be deployed, a new wave of 5G experiences will be possible, powered by Intel technologies across the cloud, core network, access network, and devices.” Huang Yuhong, Deputy General Manager of China Mobile Research Institute, says: “China Mobile has worked hard with global partners in setting up a common 5G SA standard. Now we have teamed up with Ericsson and Intel to achieve successful interoperability of 5G NR among multi vendors. This is an important milestone for the commercialization of 5G standards and will lay a solid foundation for China Mobile in our large-scale 5G trial, enabling the success of the global 5G industry.” Later this year, Ericsson and China Mobile will conduct a 5G field trial in Suzhou city of Jiangsu Province, where the demo system will also be deployed and tested. Ericsson and Intel have been collaborating on 5G and jointly conducting trials globally with communication service providers since 2017. More details about Standalone 5G NR Interoperability Development Testing can be found here . The three companies will hold a joint SA 5G NR live call demonstration at Mobile World Congress Shanghai, from June 27 to June 29, 2018. NOTES TO EDITORS The Intel® 5G Mobile Trial Platform is based on high performance FPGA platform and supports both Non-Standalone and SA. It also supports Sub-6 frequency band, uplink support 2 layers and 256QAM, and downlink support 4 layers and 256QAM. Technical fact sheet: The Standalone 5G NR IoDT test complies with following 3GPP 5G NR requirements: Multiple numerology support: Flexible OFDM (Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing) waveform numerologies supporting low-band, as well as mid-band and high-band spectrum allocations for wideband operation and low latency services.

Arjo enters into exclusive R&D partnership with Next Step Dynamics

Arjo, a market-leading supplier of medical devices and solutions, has entered into an exclusive partnership with Next Step Dynamics, a Swedish technology company specialising in predictive analytics, for development and sales of solutions for preventive healthcare. According to the terms of the partnership, Arjo has committed to spendSEK 70 M on development projects for solutions within the area of predictive analytics. “This partnership is very much in line with our digitalization strategy and offers a fantastic opportunity for us to develop innovations that can really make a difference for both the users and healthcare professionals, as well as for society in general, for example by reducing the cost of care,” says Joacim Lindoff. For elderly people, falling presents a high risk of injuries such as hip fractures, which in turn are a common cause of more serious – and in many cases fatal – illnesses. Falls are the second leading cause of accidental or unintentional injury deaths worldwide. In the US, an elderly person dies every 20 minutes due to a fall and many more are badly injured*, resulting in high healthcare costs. Furthermore, the demographic changes in society leading to a growing elderly population could mean that fall-related injuries are expected to rise sharply in the next few years. Together with Next Step Dynamics, Arjo will develop a range of solutions for predicting and preventing not only patient and resident injuries but also caregiver injuries. The partnership grants Arjo global exclusive rights to commercialise and distribute solutions generated from this collaboration. One such example is a smart wearable that analyses data indicative of patient and resident well being such as balance, lower body strength and sleep in order to predict the risk of a fall among, for example, elderly people or people with reduced mobility. This risk is then seamlessly shared with authorized care professionals, thereby enabling them to take preventive action based on a scientific deep learning algorithm. The solution has been reviewed by more than 160 healthcare professionals, and the product can be used by care units as well as in the home, and can be customised to individual needs. “With joint resources, we will take the products for preventive healthcare to the next level. For us, the partnership with Arjo also means access to industry expertise, thus reduced time to market, enabling us to serve urgent needs on the global market faster”, says Karthik Srinivasan, founder of Next Step Dynamics. Both parties are entering the partnership with a long-term view.

Scania will deliver bus system for Ouagadougou

Traffic will start next year with the delivery of the first 225 buses. The project includes supplying buses and coaches, establishing a bus depot, building bus stops and bus lanes as well as training drivers and service technicians. In collaboration with RATP Group, Scania will ensure efficient fleet management. Scania will also work on the introduction of alternative fuels with the ultimate aim of operating the entire fleet on biodiesel and biogas. The population of Ouagadougou – 3 million – is expected to double by 2030. At present, half of the residents travel on foot, while 80 percent of motorised trips are carried out on two wheels (mainly motorcycles), most often for lack of public transport. The ambitious transport plan for the capital of Burkina Faso is, over the period 2018–2020, to strengthen Ouagadougou's public transport network by deploying 550 new vehicles on current and future bus routes. Initially, the current bus system will be modernised while a future Bus Rapid Transit System (BRT) with four routes is planned. By involving RATP Group and Scania in this project, Burkina Faso has chosen to build on the expertise of two internationally recognised transport stakeholders. The RATP Group is one of the world’s five largest urban public transport companies. It will contribute its expertise on the entire mobility chain in technical, financial and training issues. In addition, RATP Group will design, supply and operate Intelligent Transport Systems, such as passenger information and ticketing systems. The agreement was signed in Paris by Vincent Timbindi Dabilgou, Minister of Transport, Urban Mobility and Road Safety of Burkina Faso, Jérôme Harnois, President, RATP International and Christian Levin, Executive Vice President, Scania.

SAS opens new route from Copenhagen to Hong Kong

Since launching the route three years ago, SAS has faced challenges when it comes to profitability on the Stockholm-Hong Kong route. However, thanks to a new airport slot, SAS will now be able to offer a more attractive timetable with in demand night flights to and from Hong Kong.  In order to be able to exploit the new airport slot and offer a night flight to Scandinavia from Hong Kong, the route needs to be flown from Copenhagen for operational reasons. “We look forward to being able to offer our customers a better timetable with attractive night flights to and from Kastrup. Obviously, it's sad that we're moving from Stockholm, but in this case, Copenhagen offers better long-term opportunities that will enable us to further improve the SAS customer experience,” says Karl Sandlund, EVP Commercial, at SAS. SAS will fly from Copenhagen to Hong Kong five days a week with good connections from Stockholm, the rest of Scandinavia and the whole of northern Europe. The opportunity to fly from Copenhagen offers good long-term market prospects with a large catchment area and operational advantages. “SAS has a strong presence at all the major Scandinavian airports. It is important for us to review all our routes on a continuous basis in order to be able to maximize the benefits for both passengers and our profitability,” Sandlund says. Tickets can be booked from 15 June 2018 and the first flight will leave on 28 October 2018. Passengers that have already booked a flight from Stockholm will be rebooked via Copenhagen to Hong Kong.

(EET) The trialogue negotiations between the European Council, the European Parliament and the European Commission on the post-2020 EU Renewable Energy Directive (RED II) took place in Strasbourg on 13 June. “We are pleased with the agreement on the EU-wide overall target of 32% for renewables in 2030, and the target of 14% for renewables in transport in 2030.

Oncopeptides present updated interim data from the ongoing HORIZON trial with Ygalo® at the 23rd Congress of The European Hematology Association (EHA)

The data are presented in a poster that can be found at:   CEO comments “In HORIZON, we are studying the activity of Ygalo® in myeloma patients that have failed on all, or the majority of, treatments that are currently in use. In addition, half the patients in HORIZON are ISS stage III and half the patients have high-risk cytogenetics. This means that the patients are very ill, since both parameters are strong predictors of poor treatment outcome. To our knowledge this is the highest combined number in any study in myeloma to date. Despite all this, we see a tumor response in 32% of patients, disease stabilization in 84% of patients, positive initial indication of the duration of the treatment effect as well as a manageable safety profile for Ygalo®. We have made the decision to expand the HORIZON trial to further understand the efficacy of Ygalo® in this very difficult to treat patient population“, said Jakob Lindberg, CEO of Oncopeptides. Professor Paul G. Richardson comments   "With an increasing number of patients with highly resistant myeloma there is a real need for additional treatment options based on new mechanisms of action. Ygalo®, a peptidase-enhanced compound, with its potent activity, manageable tolerability and lack of shared resistance mechanisms with other modalities, is a promising molecule that is making encouraging progress in clinical development” said Professor Paul Richardson, Harvard Medical School at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Boston, USA. About the HORIZON study The study recruitment is ongoing. The interim data presented at the EHA congress are based on a data cut-off dated May 10th 2018 with 62 patients treated. The patients in the study should be refractory to pomalidomide and/or daratumumab after failing on IMiDs and PIs. Conclusions regarding HORIZON The study continues to develop positively in this heavily pretreated patient group that is refractory to pomalidomide and/or daratumumab after failing on IMiDs and PIs with few remaining treatment options. · 54% of patients in the study had high-risk cytogenetics, 46% of patients were ISS stage III, the median number of prior lines of therapy was 5.5 and the median time since initial diagnosis was 6.1 years. · 100% of patients were refractory to pomalidomide or daratumumab, 98% had disease progression on or within 60 days of completion of the last therapy, 89% were double-refractory to IMiD:s and PI:s and 56% were refractory to both pomalidomide and daratumumab. · Analysis of the preliminary efficacy results showed an ORR of 32.1%, a CBR of 39.3% and that 84% of the patients achieved disease stabilization (SD or better). Overall response rate (N=56) ORR CBR CR VGPR PR MR SD PDtotal, N=56 32.1% 39.3% 2% 9% 21% 7% 45% 16% · Subgroup analysis suggests that response does not vary across refractory subsets but rather with the underlying disease and health status of the patient (in line with the observation made in Oncopeptides phase II study O-12-M1). · Time-to-next-treatment was maintained compared to the previous line of therapy without the deterioration normally seen in myeloma patients. · In the previous line of therapy, 75% of the patients were treated with antibody-based therapies or 2nd/3rd generation PI:s and IMiD:s, and 46% received triple combination therapies. This study confirms earlier results from the O-12-M1 study in a more resistant patient population. The efficacy results in this interim analysis are encouraging with an ORR of 32,1% and a CBR of 39,3%. Ygalo® showed a manageable safety and tolerability profile. Treatment-related grade 3/4 AEs were reported in 48 (77%) patients with the majority being hematologic. Treatment-related non-hematologic grade 3/4 AEs were rare with infections in only 6% of patients. About Ygalo® Ygalo® is an alkylating peptide, belonging to the novel class of Peptidase Enhanced Compounds (PEnCs), targeting the multiple myeloma (MM) transformation process with a unique mechanism of action. Aminopeptidases are heavily over-expressed in MM cells and are key to the transformational process of the disease. Ygalo® selectively targets MM cells through aminopeptidase-driven accumulation, where in vitro experiments show a 50-fold enrichment of alkylating metabolites in MM cells. The enrichment results in selective cytotoxicity (increased on-target potency and decreased off-target toxicity), overcomes resistance pathways of existing myeloma treatments (including alkylators) and demonstrates strong anti-angiogenic properties. Ygalo® in clinical development Ygalo® has been used to treat late-stage RRMM patients in both phase I and phase II clinical studies (O-12-M1) with favorable results. Currently, Ygalo® is being studied in three clinical trials for the treatment of multiple myeloma. The current studies are HORIZON, OCEAN and ANCHOR. A fourth study, BRIDGE in RRMM patients with impaired renal function will be initiated during Q3 this year to further investigate Ygalo® in multiple myeloma. The current clinical study program is intended to demonstrate better results from treatment with Ygalo® compared to established alternative drugs for patients with late-stage multiple myeloma. Ygalo® could potentially provide physicians with a new treatment option for patients suffering from this serious disease. Ygalo® has been investigated in the treatment of late-stage relapsed refractory multiple myeloma (RRMM) patients. This was done in the clinical study O-12-M1 where strong final results were reported in December 2017. Currently, three clinical studies are ongoing with Ygalo®. HORIZON is a Phase II study that studies the effect of Ygalo® in late-stage RRMM patients with few or no remaining established treatment options. Updated interim data from this study are presented at EHA in June 2018. OCEAN is Oncopeptides´ pivotal Phase III study where Ygalo® is compared directly with current standard of care, pomalidomide, in late-stage RRMM patients. In the ANCHOR study, Ygalo® will be administered in combination with either bortezomib or daratumumab in RRMM patients. The results of this study aim to create understanding and knowledge among treating physicians for how Ygalo® can be used in combination with these drugs. In addition, the results could open up for the use of Ygalo® in earlier lines of treatment. About Oncopeptides Oncopeptides is a research and development stage pharmaceutical company developing drugs for the treatment of cancer. The company focus on the development of the lead product candidate Ygalo®, an innovative, Peptidase Enhanced Cytotoxic (PEnCs). Ygalo® is intended as an effective treatment of hematological cancers, and in particular multiple myeloma. The current clinical study program is intended to demonstrate better results from ­treatment with Ygalo® compared with established alternative drugs for patients with late-stage multiple myeloma. Ygalo® will potentially provide physicians with a new treatment option for patients suffering from this serious disease.   Visit for more information.

Azelio demonstrates game-changing technology for low cost solar energy storage

Azelio's unique solution is based on Stirling Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) with multi-hour Thermal Energy Storage (TES). It can be built in a modular way from small to very large installations with maintained low cost and high efficiency. The system is distributed for local production and storage of heat, which can at any point be withdrawn from the storage and converted into electricity for 24/7 capacity. The technology is well suited for areas with weak or non-existent grids. It can thus be used to accelerate the roll-out of electricity to the more than one billion people in the world that lack that access as of today, enabling societal growth. Since the greatest energy recovery is obtained in the conversion phase, Azelio is using an aluminium alloy as a storage media for its very specific phase changing characteristics. This storage media does not need refilling to maintain its efficiency, as opposed to common storage technologies using salt or water. Azelio's main market focus is initially projects in the size of 500 kW to 20 MW, targeting a gap on the global energy market. “Showcasing this technology is a great milestone for Azelio. We have now proven that this world-unique solution works and together with our partners we will continue the development and commercialization. Low cost and clean electricity that is made accessible on demand also in remote locations at all hours of the day is really a game changer”, says Jonas Eklind, CEO of Azelio. Azelio just secured a significantly oversubscribed private placement of 100 MSEK and is planning for a listing on the Stockholm stock exchange. In 2019, a verification project will be built together with the strategic partner, Masen (Moroccan Agency for Sustainable Energy) in Morocco. For more information, please contact Jonas Eklind, CEO of AzelioTel: +46 709 40 35 80Email: About AzelioAzelio is a privately held Swedish high-tech SME specialized in Stirling engine-based renewable energy systems, with a highly efficient Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) solution with low cost and modular multi-hour Thermal Energy Storage (TES).

NeuroVive out-licenses targeted LHON therapy to BridgeBio Pharma’s new subsidiary Fortify Therapeutics

LHON is caused by mitochondrial DNA mutations in subunits of NADH dehydrogenase (complex I), leading to reduced oxidative phosphorylation and energy production in retinal cells. The disease predominantly affects young adults, and results in sudden onset of progressive and severe vision loss. The licensed succinate prodrugs have the potential to overcome the disease by bypassing the dysfunctional metabolic pathway, providing an alternate source of energy to the retinal cells. “As a targeted treatment for a genetic disease, the LHON program is a clear fit with the BridgeBio model,” said Neil Kumar, Ph.D., CEO of BridgeBio. “We have been impressed with the ability of these compounds to rescue specific genetic mitochondrial deficiencies, and we have assembled a team of international experts to further develop a subset of the NVP015 chemistry to address this devastating disease.” Fortify Therapeutics will develop selected lead compounds derived from NeuroVive’s novel NVP015 succinate prodrug program into drug candidates for the localized treatment of LHON. These compounds have been selected because they have properties that make them suitable for delivery to the eye. The licensing agreement for this particular subset of the NVP015 program has a total deal value of approximately $60 million USD, which includes limited initial funding for research, and later milestone payments and a single digit royalty stream, that are dependent on successful development and market approval. “The agreement with BridgeBio is important to both NeuroVive and our innovative NVP015 program, as it validates the quality of the program, our business development model and potential in a variety of mitochondrial disorders,” commented NeuroVive CEO Erik Kinnman, M.D., Ph.D. “We will work closely with BridgeBio to further develop this chemistry subset and make the LHON program successful. It is important to note that our intentions for the NVP015 program are unchanged, and we are progressing towards experimental proof-of-principle during 2018.” This information is information that NeuroVive Pharmaceutical AB (publ) is obliged to make public pursuant to the EU Market Abuse Regulation.

This results in dysfunctional oxidative phosphorylation and ATP production, leading to degeneration of the retinal ganglion cells and loss of central vision. LHON most commonly affects males in their second or third decade of life. The prevalence of LHON in Europe is between 1:30,000-1:50,000. About NVP015One of the most common causes of mitochondrial diseases relates to Complex I dysfunction, i.e. when energy conversion in the first of the five protein complexes in the mitochondrion that are essential for effective energy conversion does not function normally. This is apparent in disorders including Leigh’s Syndrome and MELAS, both of which are very serious diseases with symptoms such as muscle weakness, epileptic fits and other severe neurological manifestations. The NVP015 project is based on a NeuroVive innovation in which the body’s own energy substrate, succinate, is made available in the cell via a prodrug technology. A prodrug is an inactive drug that is activated first when it enters the body by the transformation of its chemical structure. Results from the NVP015 project were published in the prestigious Nature Communications journal in August 2016. About BridgeBio PharmaBridgeBio is a privately held clinical-stage biotech company developing novel, genetically targeted therapies to improve the lives of patients. The BridgeBio approach combines a traditional focus on drug development with a unique corporate model, allowing rapid translation of early stage science into medicines that treat disease at its source. Founded in 2015 by a team of industry veterans, the company, based in Palo Alto, CA, has built a robust portfolio of nineteen transformative assets, each housed in its own subsidiary, ranging from pre-clinical to late stage development in multiple therapeutic areas including oncology, cardiology, neurology, dermatology and endocrinology. The company's focus on scientific excellence and rapid execution aims to translate today's discoveries into tomorrow's medicines. About NeuroVive NeuroVive Pharmaceutical AB is a leader in mitochondrial medicine, with one project in clinical phase II development for the prevention of moderate to severe traumatic brain injury (NeuroSTAT®) and one project in clinical phase I (KL1333) for genetic mitochondrial diseases.

The strategy for projects within larger indications outside the core focus area is out-licensing in the preclinical phase. NeuroVive is listed on Nasdaq Stockholm, Sweden (ticker: NVP). The share is also traded on the OTCQX Best Market in the US (OTC: NEVPF).

KPMG Sweden sells Business Accounting Services division to IK Investment Partners

Business Accounting Services is a leading provider of accounting, payroll and related advisory services with approximately 300 employees across Sweden. The transaction represents an attractive opportunity for both employees in accounting and payroll administration and for KPMG as a whole. In February 2018, IK announced the acquisition of Aspia, which operated as a separate division within PwC, supporting over 27,000 small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). Aspia is one of the leading companies in accounting, payroll and related advisory services with 71 offices and approximately 1,100 employees across Sweden. The transaction is expected to close 2nd July 2018.  The plan is to integrate Aspia and Business Accounting Services, and the combined entity will operate under the brand name of Aspia. Together, the two businesses had a turnover of more than SEK 1.25 billion.  "Aspia and Business Accounting Services share similar expertise, service offering, customer base and presence as well as cultural heritage.

Hyon’s module-based fuel cell solutions for maritime use receive world’s first approval-in-principle from DNV GL

The English version is an in house-translation. In case of any discrepancy, the Swedish text will prevail. Hyon AS is a joint venture owned by PowerCell and the two Norwegian companies Nel and Hexagon Composites, which manufactures, among other things, electrolysers and hydrogen gas tanks. Based on the three companies' products and know-how, Hyon has developed a complete and module-based power generation solution for ships that now has received an approval-in-principle from the certification company DNV GL. DNV GL is a world-leading certification company and one of the world's largest classification societies for ships and offshore. This is the first time that a power generating unit based on hydrogen and fuel cells receives an approval for use in ships from DNV GL. Commercial shipping affects the environment, through emissions of both carbon dioxide and particles, and the International Maritime Organization, IMO, has set the goal of halving emissions from shipping by 2050. In order to achieve that goal, increased use of non-fossil and renewable fuels will be required for both propulsion and power generation. "A power generating unit based on fuel cells is significantly smaller than one based on diesel or gas with equal power and does not emits greenhouse gases, particles, sulphur or nitrogen oxides," said Arild Eiken, Maritime Technical Manager of Hyon AS. "As the shipping industry is changing, hydrogen fuel cells will become a very attractive alternative. Already, confirmed field tests that utilise fuel cells and combinations of fuel cells are already under way for different types of vessels," said Arild Eiken. The now approved fuel cell solution can be installed above or below the main deck and encompasses cabinets from 100kW up to containers of megawatt power.
