Filo Mining Announces Positive PFS Results for Filo del Sol with a US$1.3 Billion After Tax NPV and 23% IRR

Vancouver, BC January 13, 2019: Filo Mining Corp. (TSX-V, Nasdaq First North: FIL) ("Filo Mining”, or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the results of a positive Pre-Feasibility Study (“PFS”) at its 100% owned Filo del Sol project located on the border of Region III, Chile and San Juan Province, Argentina.  A conference call and webcast to discuss these results will be held on Tuesday, January 15, 2018 at 09:00 h Eastern Standard Time.  All values in this release are reported in US dollars. Commenting on the results, CEO Adam Lundin stated, “The PFS confirmed and improved on our initial work at Filo del Sol and highlights the incredible potential of the project. We remain excited about our ongoing field season that will continue to enhance the project and in tandem explore the sulphide portion of the deposit which, to date, has not been included in any study or economics.”     Filo del Sol PFS Highlights: ·  A $1.28 billion after-tax NPV using an 8% discount rate and an IRR of 23% at $3.00/lb copper, $1300/oz gold and $20/oz silver; ·  Average annual production of approximately 67,000 tonnes of copper (including copper as copper precipitate), 159,000 ounces of gold, and 8,653,000 ounces of silver at a C1 cost of $1.23/lb CuEq.; ·  An Initial Probable Mineral Reserve of 259 Mt of 0.39% copper, 0.33 g/t gold, and 15 g/t silver; ·  Pre-production capital cost of $1.27 billion (excluding costs prior to a construction decision); ·  14 year mine life (including pre-stripping) producing almost 1.75 billion pounds (lbs) of copper as cathode, and 1.92 million ounces (oz) of gold and 104 million oz of silver as doré over the 13 year leach feed schedule. Additional copper is also recovered as a high-grade copper precipitate. ·  Low strip ratio of 1.5:1 (waste:ore) ·  Excellent metallurgy producing LME grade copper cathodes and gold and silver doré. ·  Incorporates planning for a fully autonomous haul truck fleet and recovery of additional copper as sulphide precipitate with coincident regeneration of a portion of the cyanide, which drives the low estimated operating costs; ·  Potential opportunities to further improve the project include: · Increasing metallurgical recoveries with additional test work and optimization of process parameters; · Delineating more or higher-grade material through continued exploration on the Company’s extensive land package; and · Future exploitation of copper-gold sulphide material underlying the identified oxide deposit.   Project Description Filo del Sol hosts a high-sulphidation epithermal copper-gold-silver deposit associated with a large porphyry copper-gold system. The project is located in the Andes Mountains on the border of Chile and Argentina, approximately 140 km southeast of the city of Copiapó. The project is covered under the Mining Integration and Complementation Treaty between Chile and Argentina, which provides the framework for the development of cross-border mining projects. The PFS contemplates that Filo del Sol would be mined using conventional open pit methods. From the open pit, ore would be trucked to a conventional two-stage crusher, designed to process 60,000 tonnes per day of ore. Crushed ore would be treated by sequential heap leaching, to extract copper and subsequently gold and silver from the ore followed by hydrometallurgical processing to produce copper cathodes and gold-silver doré. Groundwater for the process plant would be supplied from nearby aquifers to the plant site, and power would be supplied via 127 km of power line construction to connect to the Chilean national grid. Copper cathode and gold-silver doré would be transported by truck to Puerto Caldera which is located approximately 245 km by road from the plant site. Approximately 60 km of the existing road between site and port would require upgrade to accommodate the truck traffic; the remaining distance comprises public highway.

Mineral Reserves have an effective date of 13 January 2019. The Qualified Person for the estimate is Mr. Jay Melnyk, P.Eng. of AGP Mining Consultants, Inc. 2. The Mineral Reserves were estimated in accordance with the CIM Definition Standards for Mineral Resources and Reserves; 3. The Mineral Reserves are supported by a mine plan, based on a pit design, guided by a Lerchs Grossmann (LG) pit shell. Inputs to that process are: ·  Metal prices of Cu $3.00/lb, Ag $20/oz, Au $1300/oz; ·  Mining cost of $2.00/t; ·  An average processing cost of $9.73/t; ·  General and administration cost of $2.02/t processed; ·  Pit slope angles varying from 29 to 45 degrees, inclusive of geotechnical berms and ramp allowances; ·  Process recoveries were based on rocktype. The average recoveries applied were 83% for Cu, 73% for Au and 80% for Ag, which exclude the adjustments for operational efficiency and copper recovered as precipitate which were included in the financial evaluation; 1. Dilution and Mining Loss adjustments were applied at ore/waste contacts using a mixing zone approach. The volumes of dilution gain and ore loss were equal, resulting reductions in grades of 1.0%, 1.3% and 1.0% for Cu, Au and Ag respectively; 2. Ore/Waste delineation was based on a Net Value Per Tonne (NVPT) breakeven cut-off considering metal prices, recoveries, royalties, process and G&A costs as per LG shell parameters stated above; 3. The life-of-mine (LOM) stripping ratio in tonnes is 1.52:1; 4. All figures are rounded to reflect the relative accuracy of the estimate.   Totals may not sum due to rounding as required by reporting guidelines. Mining & Processing The study contemplates open pit mining methods, with conventional drilling, blasting and loading performed on 12m benches. Autonomous haulage was incorporated to take advantage of the technology’s proven productivity improvements and operating cost savings. The open pit would have a mine life of 14 years, including pre-stripping, with a life of mine strip ratio of 1.5:1. A maximum mining rate of approximately 65 Mt per year (including waste) is required to provide the nominal 60,000 tonnes per day of ore to the process facility. A total of 259 Mt of ore is expected to be processed over the life of the mine. Ore would be trucked from the mine and either stockpiled or direct tipped into the primary crusher. The ore would be further crushed through a closed-circuit secondary crushing system to a stockpile. Crushed ore would be processed at an on/off heap leach pad where the copper would be leached in acid and then recovered from the leach solution by solvent extraction and electrowinning to produce LME grade copper cathodes. Metal leaching is expected to span over 13 years. Once the copper is leached, the ore would be rinsed, neutralized and removed from the on/off leach pad by a bucket wheel reclaimer. The material would then be agglomerated using cement, and subsequently stacked on a permanent heap leach pad where gold and silver would be leached in a cyanide solution. Gold and silver would be recovered from the pregnant gold leach solution by a Merrill-Crowe zinc precipitation process. Gold and silver would then be smelted to produce doré. A portion of the barren leach solution, following zinc precipitation, would be treated to avoid a build-up of recirculating copper and cyanide through the gold circuit. This treatment is based on the SART process which produces a copper sulphide precipitate (which grades approximately 65% copper) and recovers cyanide for use in the heap leach. The proposed PFS production schedule and metal production profile is shown in the attached figures. Note: the project assumes a 24-month construction period. Metallurgy In 2016 and 2017, comprehensive metallurgical test programs were carried out at SGS Lakefield on selected samples from the Filo del Sol deposit. These focussed mostly on assessing the feasibility of using heap leaching to recover the copper, gold and silver from the various mineralization types identified. To confirm these results a sampling campaign was carried out in early 2018 to collect surface samples, RC chips and diamond drill core samples. A total of more than 3,500 kg of sample was shipped to the SGS facility in Lakefield, Ontario. Samples were submitted to various physical, chemical and detailed mineralogical characterisation tests. Most of the metallurgical program was devoted to the leaching stage of the process, more particularly heap leaching. Heap leaching was simulated by conducting column leaching tests on material ranging from 0.5 to 2.5 inch crush size and using 50 to 250 kg of sample per column test. Cyanide column leaching was tested for the gold oxide ore types (a total of 11 column tests), while sequential column leaching (acid leaching followed by washing/neutralization and cyanide leaching) was used for the copper-gold oxide ore types (a total of 18 sequential column tests). Variability and process optimization testing were carried out using bottle roll tests on minus 10 mesh material. Both cyanide leaching (a total of 21 bottle roll tests) and sequential leaching (a total of 72 sequential leach bottle roll tests) were conducted during the 2018 program. The results of the test program were used to determine the optimal leach program together with expected leach recoveries for copper, gold and silver.   Additionally, deductions to the testwork extractions were applied to expected copper, gold, and silver recoveries to simulate scale-up to a commercial production facility. Infrastructure The major infrastructure items considered and costed in the PFS are: · Water Supply:  Water would be supplied from aquifers in Argentina, located near the proposed plant site.   The industrial water make-up requirement is estimated to be 75 L/s and is expected to be fully supported by the aquifers. · Power Supply:  The site would be supplied with electricity through a 127 km long, 110 kV, single circuit power transmission line connected to the Los Loros substation in Chile.  Average electrical demand is estimated to be 52 MW.  A price of $0.075/kWh was used for long-term power supply.  · Product Transport:  Copper cathode would be transported by truck to Puerto Caldera, a port near the city of Caldera which is located 77 km by road northwest of Copiapó.  The approximate trucking distance from the plant site is 245 km, of which roughly 60 km of existing road will require upgrade to accommodate the truck traffic. Doré would be transported approximately 175 km to Aeropuerto Desierto de Atacama for ongoing airfreight. Social & Environmental Knight Piésold completed the environmental baseline work for the Company in 2017 and 2018 in addition to reviewing the historical work from other independent consultants who assisted in the preparation of the environmental work. This work will be used to support the preparation of the respective Environmental Impact Assessments (“EIA”). Baseline studies to date include geosciences, air & water, terrestrial biota, the human environment, and natural & cultural heritage. The list of environmental components to be studied was derived from the Chilean national environmental assessment regulations, the Argentine national mining environmental law and from the International Finance Corporation’s Sustainability Performance Standards (IFC 2012). Baseline studies are ongoing and will continue into the upcoming field season. Communication with the local community, private land owners, and other interested parties is also ongoing. Mineral Resource The Filo del Sol Resource remains unchanged from the Mineral Resource estimate reported by the Company on August 8, 2018 and is based on a total of 44,600 metres of drilling in 188 holes, of which 158 holes are reverse circulation (RC) and 30 holes are core holes. The resource estimate presented below is the total Indicated and Inferred Resource, divided between oxide and sulphide mineralization. The Mineral Resource estimate as of the effective date of June 11, 2018 is shown in the table below. The Mineral Resources are inclusive of Mineral Reserves. Mineral Resources that are not Mineral Reserves do not have demonstrated economic viability.

The forward-looking statements contained in this news release are made as at the date of this news release and Filo does not undertake any obligations to publicly update and/or revise any of the included forward-looking statements, whether as a result of additional information, future events and/or otherwise, except as may be required by applicable securities laws. Forward-looking information is provided for the purpose of providing information about management's current expectations and plans and allowing investors and others to get a better understanding of the Company's operating environment. Forward-looking information is based on certain assumptions that the Company believes are reasonable, including that the current price of and demand for commodities will be sustained or will improve, the supply of commodities will remain stable, that the general business and economic conditions will not change in a material adverse manner, that financing will be available if and when needed on reasonable terms and that the Company will not experience any material labour dispute, accident, or failure of plant or equipment. These factors are not, and should not be construed as being, exhaustive. Although the Company has attempted to identify important factors that would cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in forward-looking information, there may be other factors that cause results not to be as anticipated, estimated, or intended. There can be no assurance that such statements will prove to be accurate, as actual results and future events could differ materially from those anticipated in such statements. All of the forward-looking information contained in this document is qualified by these cautionary statements. Readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on forward-looking information due to the inherent uncertainty thereof. Estimates of Mineral Reserves and Mineral Resources Information regarding reserve and resource estimates has been prepared in accordance with Canadian standards under applicable Canadian securities laws, and may not be comparable to similar information for United States companies. The terms “Mineral Resource”, “Measured Mineral Resource”, “Indicated Mineral Resource” and “Inferred Mineral Resource” used in this news release are Canadian mining terms as defined in accordance with NI 43-101 under guidelines set out in the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum (“CIM”) Standards on Mineral Resources and Mineral Reserves adopted by the CIM Council on May 10, 2014. While the terms “Mineral Resource”, “Measured Mineral Resource”, “Indicated Mineral Resource” and “Inferred Mineral Resource” are recognized and required by Canadian regulations, they are not defined terms under standards of the United States Securities and Exchange Commission. Under United States standards, mineralization may not be classified as a “reserve” unless the determination has been made that the mineralization could be economically and legally produced or extracted at the time the reserve calculation is made. As such, certain information contained in this news release concerning descriptions of mineralization and resources under Canadian standards is not comparable to similar information made public by United States companies subject to the reporting and disclosure requirements of the United States Securities and Exchange Commission. An “Inferred Mineral Resource” has a great amount of uncertainty as to its existence and as to its economic and legal feasibility. It cannot be assumed that all or any part of an “Inferred Mineral Resource” will ever be upgraded to a higher category. Under Canadian rules, estimates of Inferred Mineral Resources may not form the basis of feasibility or other economic studies. Readers are cautioned not to assume that all or any part of Measured or Indicated Resources will ever be converted into Mineral Reserves. Readers are also cautioned not to assume that all or any part of an “Inferred Mineral Resource” exists or is economically or legally mineable. In addition, the definitions of “Proven Mineral Reserves” and “Probable Mineral Reserves” under CIM standards differ in certain respects from the standards of the United States Securities and Exchange Commission. Non-IFRS Measures This news release refers to certain financial measures, such as pre-production capital costs, initial capital expenditures, sustaining capital expenditure, closure costs, C1 cash costs, payback period, undiscounted after-tax cash flow, and net present value, and other financial metrics which are not measures recognized under IFRS and do not have a standardized meaning prescribed by IFRS. In the mining industry, these are common performance measures but may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other issuers. The Company believes that, in addition to conventional measures prepared in accordance with IFRS, certain investors use this information to evaluate the Company’s performance and ability to generate cash flow. Accordingly, it is intended to provide additional information and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for measures of performance prepared in accordance with IFRS.

Wärtsilä provides efficient and flexible 90 MW power plant to supply electricity and district heating for Dresden, Germany

The technology group Wärtsilä has been awarded a contract to deliver a combined heat and power engine power plant (CHP) to Dresden, Germany. The facility has been ordered by DREWAG, Dresden’s local utility company, and will be delivered by Wärtsilä on an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) basis. Wärtsilä will also maintain the plant under a Wärtsilä Guaranteed asset performance  solution for ten years, with a five year extension option. Performance targets are determined based on measured data and Wärtsilä guarantees the targets are met and maintained throughout the duration of the agreement. The order was booked in December 2018. The Dresden-Reick power plant will feature eight Wärtsilä 31SG engines  operating on natural gas delivering electrical output of approximately 90 MW. The extremely high efficiency and flexibility of the Wärtsilä 31SG engine were cited as being key factors in the award of the contract. Another major consideration was the ability of the power plant solution to deliver electricity and district heating simultaneously. The Wärtsilä engines can reach full output from start-up in a matter of minutes. This enables them to provide immediate balancing of the grid as the system utilises more and more energy from intermittent renewable sources, such as wind and solar. “The state-of-the-art gas engine technology provided by Wärtsilä is designed to produce minute-to-minute power when it is most valuable. It is equipped with the highest level of efficiency and emission control systems to supply safe, clean, and affordable energy for the state capital for the coming decades,” stated Dr. Frank Brinkmann, Managing Director, DREWAG. Melle Kruisdijk, Vice President, Europe, Wärtsilä Energy Business, responded by saying; “This is the second major combined heat and power engine power plant that Wärtsilä is building in Germany, and the first with our new Wärtsilä 31SG engines. DREWAG is well known as a leader in applying the latest and most progressive technologies. This contract represents, therefore, a valuable endorsement of Wärtsilä as Energy System Integrator.” The Dresden-Reick plant is scheduled to become operational in 2021. Wärtsilä has in Germany sales and service for marine and energy solutions with offices, workshops and state-of-the-art equipment and technology in nine locations with 1 300 employees.

Holmen mills rated world’s most sustainable

EcoVadis is the leading system for evaluating and rating global corporations’ suppliers, and has conducted over 45 000 assessments in 150 countries. Companies using EcoVadis’ services include Coca Cola, Johnson & Johnson, Nestlé, L’Oréal and Heineken.  “We’ve been working hard for some time on integrating sustainability issues into all aspects of our business instead of viewing them as separate issues. This is one of many testaments that Holmen and our paperboard mills have a very strong sustainability profile,” said Elin Swedlund, sustainability manager at the Holmen Group. Both Iggesund Mill and its sister facility in Workington were assigned Gold Standard, the highest rating. This means both paperboard mills are among the top one per cent of all companies assessed by EcoVadis, and among the top two per cent of paper industry companies assessed.  Over the past 10 years the Holmen Group has been included in indices of the world’s 100 most sustainable companies drawn up by both the UN Global Compact and the Corporate Knights. Holmen has also been named on several occasions by the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) as a leader in efforts to tackle climate change.  “Documenting our sustainability work has been important to us for some time, as has raising awareness of the environmental benefits of our products. Our sustainability work is vital for us, together with our customers, to create climate-smart products that benefit society,” said Johan Granås, sustainability communications manager at Iggesund Paperboard.  For further information, please contact:  Hakim Belarbi, PR and Public Affairs Manager, Holmen, tel. +46 70 482 44 87

Calliditas Therapeutics appoints Frank Bringstrup as VP Regulatory Affairs

“I am delighted to welcome Frank to the team at this exciting stage in the company’s development. The combination of his strong experience in regulatory affairs, not only with the FDA but on a broad international basis with a proven track record and experience from orphan drug development and bringing products to market will play a key role as we progress development of Nefecon through phase 3 clinical trials”, said Renée Aguiar-Lucander, CEO of Calliditas Therapeutics. Dr. Bringstrup brings over 17 years’ experience in the pharmaceutical industry in regulatory affairs and health authority interactions. He worked in various positions at Novo Nordisk A/S, most recently as their Senior Global Regulatory Lead. During his time at Novo Nordisk, he led the strategic regulatory input for the orphan drug NovoEight® all the way from phase 1 through phase 3 with five parallel MAAs and NDAs and five major approvals gained in a 15-month period. Dr. Bringstrup has a wealth of experience of Regulatory Affairs in the US, EU, Japanese and international markets, and was, among other things, responsible for overseeing the lifecycle development for new indications for the orphan drug NovoSeven®, a recombinant human coagulation Factor VIIa (rFVIIa), intended for promoting hemostasis by activating the extrinsic pathway of the coagulation cascade. “I am excited to take on this role at Calliditas. With the phase 3 trial of Nefecon well underway, this is a pivotal time for the company. Currently, there are no approved treatments for IgA Nephropathy, and Nefecon has the potential to be a disease-modifying treatment for patients suffering from this chronic autoimmune disease. I am delighted to be working with this dynamic team to progress the development of Nefecon through to market”, said Frank Bringstrup. Dr. Bringstrup originally qualified as a Medical Doctor from the University of Copenhagen and started his professional career first in clinical practice as a physician, next as Frederiksborg County Medical Advisor. He has a Diploma in Managing Medical Product Innovation (MMPI) from Copenhagen Business School, a Diploma in Business Administration from Warwick University, a Post-Graduate Specialist Course in Public Health Medicine from the National Board of Health, Denmark.

About Calliditas Calliditas Therapeutics is a specialty pharmaceutical company based in Stockholm, Sweden, focused on developing high quality pharmaceutical products for patients with a significant unmet medical need in niche indications, in which the Company can partially or completely participate in the commercialization efforts. The Company is focused on the development and commercialization of the product candidate Nefecon, a unique formulation optimized to combine a time lag effect with a concentrated release of the active substance budesonide, within a designated target area. This patented, locally acting formulation is intended for treatment of patients with the inflammatory renal disease IgA nephropathy. Calliditas Therapeutics aims to take Nefecon through a global Phase 3 study to commercialization. The company is listed on Nasdaq Stockholm (ticker: CALTX). Visit www.calliditas.com for further information. About Nefecon Nefecon is a potential treatment for patients with IgAN at risk of developing ESRD. It is a proprietary oral formulation of budesonide, designed to deliver budesonide to the ileum where the so-called Peyer’s patches, which harbor the majority of B-cells producing IgA antibodies, are found. By delivering budesonide locally instead of systemically, Nefecon greatly reduces the side-effect burden observed with high dose steroid treatment while optimizing the effective dose level of the drug where it is required. Budesonide has been used to treat patients with asthma, inflammatory bowel disease and allergic rhinitis for over 35 years. It is rapidly degraded soon after entering the circulatory system, making it an ideal basis for drugs such as Nefecon because local delivery to disease tissue minimizes the systemic effects seen with other corticosteroids. Nefecon has been granted orphan drug designation for IgAN by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the European Medicines Agency (EMA). About IgA Nephropathy (IgAN)  IgA nephropathy (IgAN) – also known as Berger’s disease – is the most common form of glomerulonephritis, a chronic inflammatory condition of the kidney, in the Western world. IgAN is a serious autoimmune, progressive disease that leads to decreasing kidney function over the course of 10 to 20 years. Up to 50 percent of patients diagnosed with IgAN will progress to end-stage renal disease (ESRD), a disease state requiring dialysis or kidney transplant for survival due to insufficient kidney function within 20 years. IgAN is an orphan disease, designated as an orphan indication in both the US and Europe. IgAN affects approximately 130,000–150,000 people in the US and about 250,000 people in Europe. Today, there are no approved treatments for IgAN. Today’s standard of care treatment regimens entails primarily established, generic drugs such as blood pressure lowering agents to alleviate symptoms, complemented by off-label use of systemic corticosteroids.

Autoliv Introduces Safety Score to Develop Safer Drivers

A Unique Assessment of Driver Risk and Safety Behaviors (Detroit, USA, January 14, 2019) – Autoliv, Inc. (NYSE: ALV and SSE: ALIVsdb), the worldwide leader in automotive safety systems, today introduced Safety Score by Autoliv, a smartphone application with the goal to make people of all ages become safer drivers. Once downloaded and when active, Safety Score monitors real-time driver behaviors and compares it against Autoliv’s proprietary data algorithms and known causes of accidents and provides the user with a personalized 3-digit safe driver score. The higher the score the more safe-driving behaviors the driver exhibited over an array of data points including turning, acceleration, braking, speed and distractions. The app also collects and compares data on weather, type of roads driven on, time of day and trip duration. “Today, nearly 1.4 million people die in traffic fatalities every year and that number is expected to increase,” said Cecilia Sunnevång, Ph.D., Autoliv Vice President of Research. “Autoliv has been collecting, studying and acting on accident data for 65 years and we believe the road to saving more lives includes improving driver behavior. Safety Score, when used regularly provides a unique understanding of an individual’s safe-driving patterns and provides a framework for coaching and improving safe-driving habits.” Christoffer Malm, Autoliv Director of Digital and Mobility, added that having a personalized safety score based on individual driving behavior could also be used by ride-hailing, taxi, limousine and other fleet and professional driving companies to provide an objective picture of a user’s safe-driving habits and provide a platform for evaluating and improving driving behavior. Additionally, a personalized Safety Score based on individual driving behavior could also be used to reduce insurance costs. “Many usage-based insurance programs collect vehicle data and score based on the performance of a vehicle, which often has multiple drivers, so driving behavior reported back to the insurance company isn’t personalized,” he said. “Safety Score assesses individual driving behavior – regardless of the vehicle driven – and provides a personalized score that could be used to determine an individual’s safe-driving behavior. The individual could then share this information with the insurance company to reduce costs.” To learn more, visit www.autoliv.com/SafetyScore Media Inquiries: Jim Parks, +1 (248) 370-5677 Stina Thorman, +46 70 957 8150  About Autoliv Autoliv, Inc. is the worldwide leader in automotive safety systems, and through its subsidiaries develops and manufactures automotive safety systems for all major automotive manufacturers in the world.

Continued strength in the Brazilian lumber export market has pushed sawlog prices to record highs in the local currency

Seattle, USA.Softwood lumber exports from Brazil have increased 36% from January through November this year as compared to the same period in 2017. In US dollar terms, the export price has only gone up a modest three percent from the 3Q/17 to the 3Q/18, but because of the weakening Brazilian Real, there has been a 26% increase in the export price in the local currency over the past year. This development has led sawmills to expand export sales, which has resulted in higher demand for sawlogs. As a consequence, there has been continued upward pressure on log prices, which reached a new all-time-high in the 3Q/18, according the Wood Resource Quarterly. This increase is a continuation of a trend that started in 2013 when sawlog prices averaged BRL125/m3. In US dollar terms, Brazilian sawlog prices have declined the past year because of the strengthening dollar and in the 3Q/18 were at their lowest levels in over two years. Despite excess regional supplies of both pine and eucalyptus pulplog, prices in the local currency have increased slightly this year. Eucalyptus pulplogs have gone up three percent from the 3Q/17 to the 3Q/18, while average prices for softwood pulplogs have increased 1.3% during the same period, reports the WRQ. However, in the Southern region of Brazil, prices for pine pulplogs have declined somewhat, which was an unwelcome development for the many small independent land owners and timberland investors in the region. The limited price improvements over the past few years, oversupply of pine pulplogs, and potentially more attractive land-use alternatives in the agricultural sector, have led some landowners to choose to plant agricultural crops rather than trees. There is a concern that if many current owners of forest plantations choose this path, there will be insufficient supply of wood raw-material for the forest industry in the southern states in the future. Global lumber, sawlog and pulpwood market reporting is included in the 56-page quarterly publication Wood Resource Quarterly (WRQ). The report, which was established in 1988 and has subscribers in over 30 countries, tracks sawlog, pulpwood, lumber and pellet prices, trade and market developments in most key regions around the world. To subscribe to the WRQ, please go to www.woodprices.com

Clas Ohlson increase sales in December

December sales increased by 4 per cent to 1,316 MSEK (1,261). Organic sales increased by 2 per cent compared with the preceding year. Sales in December in comparable units and local currency is unchanged. This year's Christmas shopping was characterised by a strong start during "Black Week" in November, followed by a weaker period than last year but with a stronger final. The significant market investments that Clas Ohlson makes to strengthen the customer base and thereby drive sales have yielded results. Sales online in December increased by 52 per cent to 58 MSEK (38), partly driven by the fact that the Click & Collect service received something of a breakthrough before Christmas and the capacity improvements made in the e-commerce platform. Compared with December last year, the store portfolio was expanded net by 13 stores. At the end of the period, the total number of stores was 238. +--------------------------+--------+--------+-----------------+--------------+|Countries, MSEK |December|December|Percentage change|Organic growth|| |2018/19 |2017/18 | | |+--------------------------+--------+--------+-----------------+--------------+|Sweden |561 |536 |5 |5 |+--------------------------+--------+--------+-----------------+--------------+|Norway |540 |518 |4 |0 |+--------------------------+--------+--------+-----------------+--------------+|Finland |175 |166 |6 |2 |+--------------------------+--------+--------+-----------------+--------------+|Outside Nordic Countries**|39 |42 |-6 |-8 |+--------------------------+--------+--------+-----------------+--------------+| |1,316* |1,261 |4 |2 |+--------------------------+--------+--------+-----------------+--------------+ * of which 58 MSEK (38) comprises online sales.** Effected by store optimization in the UK, the store in Croydon closed 180816.

MTG PUBLISHES INFORMATION BROCHURE REGARDING PROPOSED DISTRIBUTION OF NENT GROUP WITH NEW FINANCIAL TARGETS AND DIVIDEND POLICY AND PROPOSES AUTHORISATION TO RESOLVE ON POTENTIAL SHARE ISSUE

As previously communicated, the Board of Directors of Modern Times Group MTG AB (publ) (“MTG”) has initiated a process to split MTG into two companies by distributing all of the shares in Nordic Entertainment Group AB (“NENT Group”) (comprising the group’s Nordic Entertainment and Studios operations) to MTG’s shareholders, and listing these shares on Nasdaq Stockholm. The MTG Board of Directors is proposing to an Extraordinary General Meeting of MTG shareholders, to be held on 7 February 2019 in Stockholm, that it resolve to distribute all of the shares in NENT Group to MTG’s shareholders. Information regarding the proposed distribution of shares in NENT Group has today been published and is available in the form of an information brochure, https://www.mtg.com/mtg-nordic-entertainment-split/. Furthermore, the Boards of Directors of MTG and NENT Group, respectively, have today decided on new financial targets and dividend policies, which are included in the information brochure. Finally, the MTG Board of Directors is proposing that the EGM authorises the Board of Directors to be able to resolve on the potential issue of Class B shares corresponding in aggregate to up to 20.0% of the total number of outstanding MTG Class B shares, in order to fund potential acquisition opportunities in line with its strategy. Such Class B shares will not be issued prior to the distribution and listing of the shares in NENT Group and will hence not carry the right to receive any share in NENT Group. The MTG Board and management believe that long-term shareholder value will be created by splitting the group into two separate and publicly listed companies, whose leading brands can shape the future of their respective industries. The split will provide both businesses with enhanced focus and agility to capitalise on consumer trends, capture growth opportunities, and generate sustainable value for all stakeholders. It will also provide two clear investment cases and equity stories with distinct financial profiles and capital allocation models. The split is expected to accelerate both companies’ development in line with their strategic objectives. The distribution is proposed to be made by means of what is known as a Lex Asea distribution of all of the shares in NENT Group to MTG’s shareholders. Each MTG Class A share and MTG Class B share will entitle the holder to receive one NENT Group share of the same class. The information brochure published today constitutes decision-making documentation for MTG’s shareholders in respect of the Board of Directors’ proposal to spin-off and list NENT Group. The brochure contains historical information, such as separate income statements, balance sheets and cash flow statements for MTG and NENT Group. The brochure also presents the background and reasons for the proposed split. NENT GROUP IN BRIEF Reporting segments NENT Group has two reporting segments: Broadcasting & Streaming and Studios. The Broadcasting & Streaming segment primarily provides TV and radio services that are distributed on a scheduled and on-demand basis, both on NENT Group’s own and third party networks, and are funded by advertising and subscription revenues. The Studios segment creates, produces and distributes scripted, non-scripted and digital content for in-house and third party distribution platforms. Financial targets and dividend policy NENT Group does not provide formal financial performance targets or guidance. NENT Group’s objective is to deliver sustainable profitable growth in the form of organic sales growth and growth in total operating income before items affecting comparability. Group central operations in 2019 will include costs related to becoming a separate and listed company, so 2019 is the starting reference year with regard to operating income growth and the operating income growth will be from 2020 onwards. The combined operating business segments (excluding items affecting comparability and central operations) are expected to continue to grow profitably in 2019. NENT Group intends to maintain its balance sheet leverage ratio of no more than 2x net debt to the trailing twelve months adjusted EBITDA, or 2.5x net debt when adjusted for leases. NENT Group’s leverage may exceed these levels temporarily from time to time, in order to finance acquisitions or due to short term effects such as the scheduling of content payments. The net debt level at listing will be in line with NENT Group’s leverage ambition when adjusted for leases. NENT Group’s dividend policy is to distribute an annual cash dividend of between 30% and 50% of adjusted net income. The intended proposed NENT Group annual cash dividend for 2018 will be announced in connection with MTG’s Q4 2018 results, and will be subject to the approval of the distribution and listing of NENT Group by the MTG EGM to be held on 7 February 2019, and then the approval of the NENT Group AGM to be held on 22 May 2019. NENT Group’s results for the financial year 2018 did not include the full run rate costs of being a separate and listed company, so the dividend to be declared may be at the low end of the range as the 2018 adjusted net income will be positively impacted by the lower costs. Financing NENT Group is currently financed primarily through intra-group financing from MTG. In connection with the listing of NENT Group’s shares, the intra-group financing in NENT Group from MTG will be refinanced with bank loans and existing cash. NENT Group has obtained financing commitment from a bank consortium for a SEK 4.0 billion Revolving Credit Facility to be utilised for general corporate purposes. NENT Group also intends to arrange both a medium term note and a commercial paper programme, which are intended to be used for capital markets funding as soon as possible before or after the listing of NENT Group. There will be no loans or derivatives outstanding between NENT Group and MTG after the listing date.   MTG EXCLUDING NENT GROUP IN BRIEF Reporting segments Following completion of the split, MTG will primarily comprise a portfolio of high growth digital entertainment operations focused on two verticals - Esports and Online Gaming - as well as shareholdings in a number of other entertainment companies including Nova Broadcasting Group and Zoomin.TV. Financial targets MTG does not provide formal financial performance targets or guidance. MTG’s objective is to continue to grow its revenues through both organic sales growth and complementary acquisitions. MTG expects its profitability to gradually increase as organic sales growth exceeds its investments, due to fixed costs stabilising and the contribution of high incremental margin sales lines. MTG will have a net cash position immediately following the distribution of NENT Group and has the funding in place to continue to pursue its standalone strategy with the ability to draw down on its borrowing facilities from time to time. MTG will invest its profits and cash flows in the further development of its portfolio of holdings, and does not therefore expect to pay dividends or buy back shares in the foreseeable future. In addition, and in order to finance potential acquisition opportunities as they arise and that are in line with its strategy, the MTG Board of Directors is proposing that the Extraordinary General Meeting of MTG shareholders to be held on 7 February 2019 authorises the Board to be able to resolve on potential new share issues. Financing It is intended that MTG excluding NENT Group will be financed with equity and have a net cash position after the listing of NENT Group. MTG has also secured a 3 year SEK 1.0 billion multi-currency revolving credit facility from Nordea, to be drawn down and utilised for general corporate purposes as and when required. The facility is based on the cash flows generated from MTG’s 95% ownership in Nova Broadcasting Group in Bulgaria and, upon disposal of the asset in part or whole, must be immediately repaid and cancelled in full. MTG intends to sell Nova Broadcasting Group and invest the proceeds in the development of its broader business. There will be no loans or derivatives outstanding between NENT Group and MTG after the listing date. New Issue Authorisation The Board of Directors proposes that the Extraordinary General Meeting of MTG shareholders authorises the Board of Directors to, on one or more occasions up until the 2019 Annual General Meeting, resolve upon the issue of class B shares representing no more than 20.0 per cent in aggregate of the total number of MTG class B shares at the time of the Extraordinary General Meeting. Any new issue of shares may be effected through a new issue with preferential rights to all shareholders and / or as a directed issue to one or more strategic investors with the right to deviate from the shareholders’ preferential rights against payment in cash, in kind or through set-off. Class B shares will not be issued under this authorisation prior to the distribution and listing of the shares in NENT Group and will hence not carry the right to receive any NENT Group shares. The purpose of the authorisation, and the reason for the potential deviation from the shareholders’ preferential rights, is to enable the company to raise capital on an accelerated basis, in order to pursue potential acquisition opportunities as they arise and in line with its strategy. MTG will focus on both organic and inorganic investment opportunities, and management believes the current market environment will continue to present several attractive acquisition opportunities in its two verticals and online gaming in particular, on which it will need to be able to execute quickly. The Board of Directors believes that the ability to act quickly on opportunities that may otherwise not be actionable will be a key competitive advantage. In addition, it may allow MTG to raise capital from potential strategic partners, which could also bring operational advantages and synergies including accelerated access to new markets. The company remains well capitalised to execute on its standalone plan, and no decision has been made to pursue a capital raise or regarding the form, size or timing of such a potential capital raise. In order for the resolution to be valid, it must be supported by shareholders holding no less than two-thirds of both the votes cast and of the shares represented at the Extraordinary General Meeting.

Finnair introduces CO2 offsetting and biofuel service for customers

Finnair today introduced a service, where its customers can offset the CO2 emissions of their flights by supporting a CO2 emission reduction project or reduce emissions by buying biofuel. Push for change service is available on Finnair web pages at www.finnair.com/pushforchange and customers can also use Finnair Plus frequent flyer points to pay for the service.   Finnair offsets the CO2 emissions of its own personnel’s duty travel through the CO2 emission reduction project.  ”We want to offer the best solutions for responsible air travelers,” says Topi Manner, Finnair CEO. ”Aviation has several positive economic and social impacts, and it is important that we work hard to build a more responsible air travel. Many important products we use in our daily life are transported by air cargo, air connections enable international trade and maintain relations, and travel industry is a key source of income and employment for many countries.”  Finnair customers can choose to support a CO2 emission reduction project, which enables the use of more efficient cookstoves in Mozambique. Efficient cookstoves reduce charcoal consumption and deforestation. The payments are transferred to the project in full through NEFCO, the Nordic Environment Finance Corporation.   The offset charge is 1 euro for a return flight within Finland, 2 euros for a return flight within Europe, and 6 euros for a return intercontinental flight. The charges are based on the average emissions and the costs of reducing a CO2 ton within the project.   Customers can also choose to support biofuel flights. The use of biofuel reduces CO2 emissions by 60-80 percent depending on the raw material. Finnair customers can buy biofuel for 10, 20 or 65 euros, to reduce the emissions of a return flight in Finland, return flight within Europe or return intercontinental flight.   Finnair’s biofuel partner is SkyNRG, and the biofuel is produced from used cooking oil in California.   Link to the service: http://www.finnair.com/pushforchange

Hansa Medical AB Provides Regulatory Update for Imlifidase in Kidney Transplantation

“We have had very productive meetings with the EMA and FDA, during which both agencies provided positive feedback on the data generated on imlifidase to date and acknowledged the high unmet medical need of highly sensitized patients who currently can’t access kidney transplantation,” said Søren Tulstrup, President and CEO of Hansa Medical AB. “In Europe, we continue to expect to file a Marketing Authorization Application with the EMA this quarter. The dialogue with the FDA to determine the path forward for regulatory approval in the U.S. will continue in a subsequent meeting in the coming months per the agency’s request for additional information regarding imlifidase treatment in the context of the new U.S. Kidney Allocation System (KAS). We will provide updated guidance regarding expected timeline for a potential BLA filing after this meeting has taken place. Our highest priority is getting imlifidase to market to enable lifesaving kidney transplants for highly sensitized patients, who currently can’t receive this standard of care treatment,” continued Mr. Tulstrup. The U.S. Kidney Allocation System was updated in 2014 in order to increase equity in allocation, reduce kidney discard rates and reduce organ/recipient longevity mismatches. While the KAS has improved the possibility for highly sensitized patients to receive a kidney transplant, thousands of highly sensitized patients remain unable to be successfully matched. In September 2018, Hansa successfully completed two Phase 2 clinical studies evaluating imlifidase for kidney transplantation in highly sensitized patients, with imlifidase enabling transplantation in all 35 patients. Imlifidase met all primary and secondary endpoints in each study. Imlifidase has received Fast Track designation from the FDA and has been selected for Priority Medicines (PRIME) by the EMA. Imlifidase has received Orphan Drug Designation from the EMA and FDA.  This is information that Hansa Medical AB is obliged to make public pursuant to the EU Market Abuse Regulation. The information was submitted for publication, through the agency of the contact person set out below at 08:00am CET on January 15, 2019.

Fiskars CorporationPress ReleaseJanuary 15, 2019 at 12:30 EET Fiskars Group has received a binding offer from MOB MONDELIN to acquire the Leborgne branded business  Fiskars Group has received a binding offer for the purchase of its Leborgne business consisting of manufacturing and sale of hand tools to construction and gardening customers in France from MOB MONDELIN. The transaction would be structured as an asset sale and include the Leborgne brand, inventory, fixed assets and personnel working for the business. “Fiskars Group’s global strategy is to focus on consumer goods and build iconic lifestyle brands, with the purpose of making the everyday extraordinary. Professional tools targeted for the construction industry is not part of our core portfolio. I am confident that with the new ownership, Leborgne would be able to leverage its full potential and continue to innovate and design products for masons, craftsmen and other professionals”, said Jaana Tuominen, President and CEO, Fiskars Group. “With two centuries of history, Leborgne is a top brand on the French market of professional hand-tools, recognized for its premium quality and its visionary innovations, built on the skill of its local factory. Those characteristics are a perfect match with our values”, said Thibaut Moulin, President of MOB MONDELIN. The Leborgne business employs approximately 70 people and its net sales amounted to approximately 12 million euros in 2018. The contemplated sale is not expected to have a significant impact on Fiskars Group’s net sales and EBITA during 2019. Fiskars has started an employee consultation process in accordance with the local laws and regulations.

DNB Livsforsikring AS – transitional effects from new tax rules

DNB Livsforsikring AS is a wholly owned subsidiary of DNB ASA. In the fourth quarter of 2018, the following allocations and financial statement entries of significance to the company's profits were made:  By adopting the Act of 20 December 2018, the Norwegian Storting laid down new tax rules with appurtenant transitional rules for life insurance and pension companies, with effect for 2018. The new rules involve taxation of income and costs related to assets in the common portfolio and the investment choice portfolio. The transition to new rules is regulated in the transitional provisions, where tax value and commitments as at 31 December 2018 shall be determined in line with the accounting rules. Changes in tax value are taxable or deductible in the 2018 fiscal year.  Based on our evaluation and understanding of the new tax rules with appurtenant transitional rules, the transition will result in a tax loss for DNB Livsforsikring. This means that the company will have a taxable income of about NOK 4 billion for 2018. On 21 December, the Norwegian Directorate of Taxes gave a statement of principles of their understanding of the transitional rule that may be conceived as divergent.  The accounting effects for DNB ASA will be an impact on profits in the fourth quarter of about NOK 4 billion, which is recorded as income under tax expenses. This will not have any effect on capital for the DNB Group before the amount or part thereof is distributed as dividends to DNB ASA. The distribution of dividends will be assessed at the year-end closing of accounts in DNB Livsforsikring AS and will be decided at the general meeting of DNB Livsforsikring AS in April 2019. Several elements will be taken into account in this assessment, such as the company's dividend policy, future market development and the company's tax position.

Halton’s silent indoor air technology embedded into unique architecture

Indoor air systems in public premises have extra requirements such as silent and draught-free operation and also architectural considerations. Oodi’s indoor air solution was created in conjunction with the planning of the entire building, in close cooperation with the architect and building systems specialist. The low-velocity displacement ventilation technology that creates an environment with no draught was integrated into the building architecture and fixtures. Plans still changed during the project, which increased the requirement level for Halton as the supplier of the ventilation architecture. “We have been working together with Halton before and therefore could rely on them to deliver quality and to do so within the timetable, also in an architecturally unique project like Oodi. Seeing the end result, I cannot help admiring the meticulous accuracy of the solutions and the supreme adjustment qualities,” says Tony Lindholm, project manager at Are Oy, which was in charge of the building systems. Halton has always accepted indoor air challenges with a keen mindset. “Halton has implemented indoor air solutions to many public premises and cultural targets both in Finland and abroad. Some of the targets in Finland include the Helsinki Music Centre, right next door, and the Helsinki Kulttuuritalo,” says Anu Saxén, Director of Halton’s Buildings Segment. “There’s plenty of talk about cultural exports, but we specialise in exporting wellbeing so that people can enjoy culture together,” she says. Halton believes there will be an increase in demand for indoor air expertise for public premises. “The world is becoming more and more urban, and there will be an increasing number of large indoor and public premises. At the same time, requirements concerning indoor air quality and environmentally friendly solutions that are also comfortable will make an already challenging job even harder. We believe that there is plenty of work for a passionate indoor air expert in the future,” says Saxén.

Investment in Suezmax tanker with long-term charter

Ocean Yield ASA (“Ocean Yield” or “Company”) is pleased to announce that the Company has agreed to acquire a modern Suezmax tanker for a consideration of USD 56.0 million with 13-year bareboat charter to Okeanis Eco Tankers Corp (“Okeanis Eco Tankers”). The purchase price includes a seller’s credit of USD 7.0 million, giving a net purchase price of USD 49.0 million. The vessel, “Milos”, was built in 2016 by Sungdong Shipbuilding in Korea and is a sister vessel to “Poliegos”, another Suezmax vessel owned by Ocean Yield. The vessel will be delivered to the Company during Q1 2019. Okeanis Eco Tankers will have certain options to acquire the vessel during the charter period. Okeanis Eco Tankers was established in 2018 by the Alafouzos family to take over its fleet of modern tanker vessels and tanker newbuildings. With seven tankers built 2015 to 2018 and eight VLCCs for delivery in 2019, the company will focus on eco-designed vessels fitted with scrubbers. The company is listed on the Oslo Stock Exchange Merkur Markets under the ticker “OET-ME”.

Volvo Construction Equipment goes electric on smaller machines

In a pioneering commitment to future technology, Volvo CE has announced that by mid-2020 it will begin to launch a range of electric compact excavators (EC15 to EC27) and wheel loaders (L20 to L28), stopping new diesel engine based development for these models. With this move, Volvo CE is the first construction equipment manufacturer to commit to an electric future for its compact machine range. This follows an overwhelmingly favorable reaction from the market after the successful unveiling of a number of concept machines in recent years and by working closely with customers. This move is aligned with the Volvo Group’s strategic focus on electromobility in all business areas. The first machines will be unveiled at the Bauma exhibition in April 2019, followed by a staged market-by-market introduction and ramp up in 2020. While the company stresses that diesel combustion currently remains the most appropriate power source for its larger machines, electric propulsion and battery technology is proving particularly suited to Volvo’s smaller equipment. With research and development investment now focused on the rapid development of its electric compact wheel loaders and excavators, Volvo CE is taking a step towards diesel free compact equipment in the future. “Volvo CE is delivering on its commitment to ‘Building Tomorrow’ by driving leadership in electromobility and delivering sustainable solutions that support customer success,” comments the company’s President, Melker Jernberg. “The technology we have been developing is now sufficiently robust and this, together with changes in customer behavior and a heightened regulatory environment, means that now is the right time to commit to electromobility in our compact equipment ranges going forward.” Further information will follow in the coming months.

Report from Extraordinary General Meeting of ÅF AB

Authorization on Share Issue and Amendment of the Limits for the Share Capital and Number of Shares On December 10, 2018, ÅF announced a public takeover bid for Pöyry PLC. To finance the partial repayment of the financing of the transaction, the Extraordinary General Meeting authorized the Board of Directors to, on one or more occasions, during the period until the Annual General Meeting 2019, decide on a new issue of new A and B shares with preferential rights for the company's shareholders. The total number of shares that may be issued in accordance with the authorization shall be within the limits of the share capital according to the Articles of Association and shall not exceed the number of shares corresponding to issue proceeds of approximately SEK 2,790 million (before transaction costs). The Meeting also authorized the Board of Directors to, with deviation from the shareholders' preferential rights, on one or more occasions during the period up to the Annual General Meeting 2019, decide on a new issue of a maximum of 6,576,866 new B shares at a subscription price of SEK 184.03 per share. The reason for the deviation from the shareholders' preferential rights is to enable new shares to be issued to certain current shareholders in Pöyry PLC, who in connection with the public takeover bid stated above have undertaken to subscribe directly or indirectly for shares in ÅF following the completion of the public takeover bid. The purpose of the authorizations is to use the proceeds to reduce ÅF’s debt following completion of the takeover bid and utilization of the authorizations is thus conditional on that this offer is completed. To adjust the limits of the Articles of Association regarding the share capital and the number of shares to the proposed authorization, the Extraordinary General Meeting also decided to increase the limits for the share capital and the number of shares to a minimum of SEK 175,000,000 and a maximum of SEK 700,000,000 and a minimum of 70,000,000 and a maximum of 280,000,000 shares. Henrik Ehrnrooth new member of the ÅF Board of Directors Henrik Ehrnrooth, chairman of Pöyry PLC's Board of Directors, was - conditional on ÅF's public takeover bid for Pöyry PLC and the directed new share issue being completed - elected as a new member of the ÅF Board of Directors. New Company Name The Meeting resolved to, subject to completion of ÅF's public takeover bid for Pöyry PLC, change the company name from ÅF AB to ÅF Pöyry AB. Corporate Communication ÅF AB (publ)

The oncology market is ever expanding, with the immuno-oncology segment expected to see the largest growth in the coming years. Securing this patent protects our innovative mutant-RAS specific cancer immunotherapy platform and strengthens our market position for treatment of RAS-mutated cancers." Targovax’ proprietary mutant-RAS neoantigen vaccine platform is designed to treat patients with tumors harboring RAS mutations. Mutations in the RAS genes are a driving cause of cancer development and progression and is linked to poor prognosis. By inducing an anti-mutant-RAS specific immune response, TG01 and TG02 have the potential to delay disease progression and increase survival, with a favorable safety profile compared to chemotherapy and many other treatment options. In the recently completed Phase I/II clinical trial TG01-01 in resected pancreatic cancer with TG01 treatment in combination with the chemotherapeutic agent gemcitabine, immune response was seen in 94% (30/32) of patients. The median survival was 33.4 months in the first cohort of 19 patients and median survival of the second cohort of 13 is not yet reached. The median disease-free survival was 13.9 months in the first cohort and 19.5 months in the second cohort, comparing favorably with historical controls of patients treated with gemcitabine alone.

Isofol Reports Early Tumor Shrinkage in Patients with Colorectal Cancer in Phase 1/2a Open Label Extension Study with arfolitixorin

Principal investigator in the ISO-CC-005 study, Dr. Göran Carlsson, said, “These data are promising and in line with earlier readouts. When extrapolating from initial data such as these, it is reasonable to expect a significant increase in overall response rate and positive impact on progression free survival (PFS) when patients continue treatment beyond eight weeks.” Karin Ganlöv, M.D., chief medical officer of Isofol, commented, "Analysis of data from the extension arm of this phase 1/2a study are very promising when compared to historical control treatments such as mFolfox and Folfiri. These data further support the hypothesis that arfolitixorin in combination with 5-FU with either irinotecan or oxaliplatin provides clinical benefit even after eight weeks treatment with a good toxicity profile. We are excited to continue to explore this hypothesis with our ongoing AGENT pivotal Phase 3 study." The ISO-CC-005 study is a Phase 1/2a open-label, multicenter dose-finding study which evaluated four different ascending doses of arfolitixorin in combination with 5-FU, oxaliplatin or irinotecan and bevacizumab in patients with metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC). The study dose of arfolitixorin was determined to 120 mg/m². The extension arm with an additional 20 patients¹ was designed to further evaluate the safety and efficacy of the selected dose regimen of arfolitixorin in combination treatment with 5-FU and oxaliplatin or irinotecan. In December 2018, Isofol announced that the first patient has been enrolled  in the pivotal Phase 3 AGENT clinical study with arfolitixorin in mCRC. AGENT (ISO-CC-007, clinicaltrials.gov ID: NCT03750786) is a randomized, controlled, multicenter study with blinded independent review of tumor response. Top-line data from the study is expected in 2021. ¹ One patient was not included in the data analysis after dropping out of treatment during the study   For more information, please contact Isofol Medical AB (publ)Anders Rabbe, CEOE­-mail: info@isofolmedical.comPhone: +46 (0)707 646 500 Investor RelationsLifeSci AdvisorsHans HerklotsE-mail: hherklots@lifesciadvisors.comPhone: +41 79 598 7149 MediaLifeSci Public Relations Alison ChenE-mail: achen@lifescipublicrelations.comPhone: +1 646 876 4932 Certified AdviserFNCA Sweden ABE-mail: i (info@fnca.se)nfo@fnca.sePhone: +46 8 528 003 99 This information is information that Isofol Medical AB (publ) is obliged to make public pursuant to the EU Market Abuse Regulation.

The Board of Directors has resolved to call for an extraordinary general meeting (the "EGM") to be held on 7 February 2019 to approve the Rights Issue. The notice of the EGM will be distributed separately. Background:Cxense has built a strong market position with its proven data management and personalisation technology. At the start of 2019, the Company’s solutions are used by 190 customers, representing some of the world’s leading publishers and brands, generating approximately USD 20 million in annual recurring revenues for Cxense. The Company has recently introduced new products with positive customer traction and seeks to capitalize on its position and expand into the growing data and subscription economy. “Subscription-based revenue models are rapidly expanding across all industries. Our solutions enable companies to use data to personalize content and offers which are key to provide subscribers with recurring relevance and value,” says Christian Printzell Halvorsen, the CEO of Cxense. “With additional growth capital, we will be able to leverage our high-margin, scalable business model to accelerate growth in existing and new markets. In addition, by strengthening our sales organisation and product offering we will have the tools to improve customer retention.”     The new international leadership team, onboarded in 2H 2018, has developed a strategic plan to increase customer lifetime value by 2-4 times and accelerate growth by strengthening the product portfolio and organisation. The target is to triple revenues over the next five years and become profitable during the period. Based on the current business plan and before the Rights Issue, Cxense is not fully funded to break-even as previously communicated. The proposed Rights Issue will finance necessary growth investments and working capital requirements for Cxense.    UnderwritingThe Rights Issue is fully underwritten, subject to customary terms and conditions, by an underwriting syndicate established by Arctic Securities (the "Bookrunner").

Stena Line’s first new generation ferry ‘floats’ in China

The first new vessel will be named Stena Estrid* and she took to the water for the first time on Jan 16th and is on schedule to enter service on the Dublin to Holyhead route in early 2020, the first of three new E-Flexer vessels bound for the Irish Sea by 2021.   Stena Line CEO Niclas Mårtensson said: “Today the first of our new generation vessels achieved a very important milestone for Stena Line.  The Stena Estrid successfully completed her ‘float out’ manoeuvre from dry dock at the Avic Shipyard and now enters a busy phase of works ahead of her Irish Sea launch early next year.” All three vessels that are being built for the Irish Sea will be larger than today’s standard RoPax vessels at 215 meters long with a freight capacity of 3,100 lane meters and the space to carry 120 cars and 1,000 passengers.  This represents a significant multi-million investment by Stena Line and underscores its  commitment to its Irish Sea operations and its determination to deliver the best possible freight and travel experience.   Stena Line has a strong belief that Irish Sea ferry transportation will continue to grow and it remains a key strategic business region for the company. “Stena Estrid will bring many benefits to ferry users including speedy and efficient loading/unloading operations plus further development of our Scandinavian inspired facilities including our restful and bespoke Hygge Lounge and the latest upgrade of our premium product, the Stena Plus concept. The new ships will be spacious, light and make use of panoramic views. This is a very exciting time for our business and I’m proud that as Europe’s largest ferry company, Stena Line continues help shape the industry for the next generation of freight and leisure customers,” concluded Niclas Martensson. Stena Line is the largest ferry operator on the Irish Sea, offering the biggest fleet and the widest choice of routes between Britain and Ireland including Holyhead to Dublin, Fishguard to Rosslare Liverpool to Belfast, Heysham to Belfast and Cairnryan to Belfast, a total of 232 weekly sailings.  The company also offers a direct service from Rosslare to Cherbourg with three return crossings a week. In addition to the three Irish Sea bound E-Flexer vessels, Stena Line has also ordered a further two E-Flexer RoPax vessels with a larger design, to be deployed within Stena Line’s network in 2022.  These larger ships will be 240 meters long with a total freight capacity of 3,600 lane meters, and passenger capacity of 1,200. Stena Lines sister company Stena RoRo is managing all the E-Flexer building projects that are ongoing on Avic Weihai Shipyard. *Stena Estrid is connected to Stena Line’s Scandinavian heritage and Estrid is an Old Norse eastern-nordic version of the name Astrid. Estrid is commonly found on old runestones and meaning divinely beautiful.

Nightingale Health to receive EUR 20 million EU-financing to herald a new era of chronic disease prevention

Nightingale Health, the Finnish innovator of an internationally recognized blood analysis technology for chronic disease prevention, today signed a EUR 20 million loan transaction with the European Investment Bank (EIB), guaranteed by the European Fund for Strategic Investments (EFSI) , a key element of the Investment Plan for Europe , also known as the Juncker Plan. The loan will be used to further accelerate the research and development of Nightingale’s blood analysis technology, facilitating better prediction and prevention for chronic diseases. EIB Vice-President Alexander Stubb, responsible for innovation, said: “Chronic diseases are a nightmare, not only for those who suffer from them, but also for those trying to cure them. The EIB is committed to supporting companies like Nightingale that can realistically make a big impact and improve the health of EU citizens. The support of the Investment Plan for Europe is particularly valuable here, and the operation is fully aligned with the objective of supporting high-skilled employment opportunities. This will also enhance Europe’s position as a major leader in medical innovation.” European Commission Vice-President Jyrki Katainen, responsible for jobs, growth, investment and competitiveness, said: "Europe invests heavily in education and science as we believe that putting a strategic effort into these areas can reap huge benefits. This commitment has resulted in Europe’s position today as a world leader in cutting edge medical research. We are delighted that the Investment Plan for Europe is fostering the development of Nightingale’s technology which has the potential to add significant value to European healthcare." Nightingale CEO and Founder Teemu Suna said: “Nightingale wants to create a world where healthcare keeps people healthy throughout their lifetimes, not just whenever they get sick. When we founded Nightingale in 2013, we wanted to bring together innovations from biotechnology, medicine and computer sciences to build a different type of healthcare – one where everyone is given a chance to live a healthier life. Today’s announcement provides Nightingale with the funding needed to take our vision for personalized medicine into European healthcare. By supplying physicians with accurate chronic disease risk prediction for their patients, we will empower people to better understand their own health status and take actions to reduce their risk. Not only will this transform how we treat common diseases such as diabetes and heart disease, but it will also significantly reduce the current economic burden on healthcare systems and workforces.” The growing burden of chronic disease poses a significant threat to citizens' wellbeing. It is also estimated that 70-80% of all healthcare costs in the EU are chronic disease-related, accounting to approximately EUR 700 billion [1]. Nightingale’s innovative blood analysis technology can detect early signs of a large number of these diseases, improving the assessment of a person’s future risk of developing heart disease and type 2 diabetes. By helping physicians and patients to better understand an individual’s chronic disease risk, effective interventions such as medications and lifestyle changes can be taken to slow and prevent disease progression. The EUR 20 million loan from the EIB represents another major step forward towards integrating Nightingale’s technology in European healthcare. Already used widely in public health research, the company’s goal is to achieve full clinical integration for its technology by replacing conventional biomarker tests for chronic diseases (e.g. cholesterol tests). By further accelerating the regulatory approval process through rigorous scientific evidence generation, the company aims to realise the promise of precision medicine. Nightingale has already received CE marking for its blood analysis technology in 2017, enabling clinical use of its technology in Europe, and its Quality Management System is certified to EN ISO 13485:2012. Nightingale will match the EIB’s loan, altogether resulting in EUR 40 million in total investment that will be used within the next 3-5 years to further advance Nightingale’s R&D and scientific evidence generation.
