Scania to supply 15 trucks for German e-highways

Trials will initially commence in Hessen along the A5 Autobahn, where the five-kilometre e-highway infrastructure with electric power supplied from overhead lines in both directions has been completed. Next will be an e-highway segment on the A1 Autobahn to the Port of Lübeck, with additional stationary charging capacity planned at the port. This highway section is expected to open during summer 2019. Finally, the third e-highway is expected be established in Baden-Württemberg along a section of the B462 federal road early 2020. The 15 trucks will be equipped with pantograph power collectors, developed by Siemens, mounted on the frame behind the cab for charging while in motion. These trucks will be operated by haulage companies in actual transport operations. Delivery of the first hybrid R 450 truck by Scania for Hessen is scheduled for May 2019. In addition to delivering trucks, Scania will manage vehicle maintenance and data collection from the trials.  Scania has previously been selected as partner in the concurrent research project conducted by Volkswagen Group Research. A hybrid Scania R 450 is expected to be delivered to the project in February and commissioning is ongoing on Siemens test track outside Berlin. A second electrified research vehicle will be delivered in autumn 2019. The research programme will seek to analyse and optimise the powertrain concept, energy management, hybrid transmission, battery ageing and the next-generation cooling system. “Unlike passenger cars, which remain parked and stationary most of the day, trucks are deployed for long hours in transport assignments when stopping to charge can be highly disruptive in the operations. E-highways offer rational and effective charging en route. The solution also saves batteries and reduces load on the energy network,” says Magnus Höglund, Head of Electric Road System, Scania.  According to several studies e-highways are an alternative that will significantly help to reduce CO2-emissions. Electrified road technology is one part of Scania’s sustainable transport solutions, which is now also being tested on German roads.  Scania to supply trucks for German e-highways research project  Italy towards a “zero impact” e-highway  Scania welcomes Sweden-Germany partnership on mobility and electrical roads  World’s first electric road opens in Sweden  For further information, please contact: Karin Hallstan, Head of Corporate Communications & PR, phone: +46(0)76 842 81 04, e-mail: karin.hallstan@scania.com

The Qt Company Introduces Qt 5.12, the Latest Version of its Framework for the Creation of Fast, High-Quality Applications and User Interfaces

Qt 5.12 Offers Long-Term Support and Higher Performance and Quality Than Ever Before Espoo, Finland – December 6, 2018 – The Qt Company  today introduced Qt 5.12 , the latest version of its cross-platform software development framework that enables developers to design and build fast, high-quality applications, user interfaces and embedded devices. In addition to long-term support (LTS), Qt 5.12 offers higher performance and quality than ever before, resulting in a comprehensive software development framework with libraries and tools that accelerate design and development for faster time-to-market. Qt’s technology is currently in use by a million developers across the world and eight of the top 10 Fortune 500 companies. With Gartner, Inc. forecasting that more than 20 billion connected things will be in use worldwide by 2020, the Internet of Things (IoT) and Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) have become two of the most fertile areas of market opportunity for businesses of all types and sizes. Meanwhile, customers have come to expect their IoT and IIoT applications and devices to offer highly graphically rich user interfaces (UIs), as well as a greater emphasis on design, performance and timely product delivery. This combination of market growth and end-user demand presents a significant opportunity for the global community of software developers creating UIs for IoT and IIoT applications and devices. With Qt 5.12, these developers can leverage a cross-platform development framework that enables them to design, develop and deploy fast, high-quality and fully supported UIs and applications for any operating system for any device, embedded system, desktop and mobile application. “Due to the ever-changing market demands created by the instant connectivity of the IoT, design and performance have become two of the most important attributes of today’s apps and devices,” said Lars Knoll, CTO, The Qt Company. “This is also true of apps and devices outside of the IoT and IIoT, so developers need a highly robust development framework that enables them to quickly and easily design and build branded UIs for the apps and devices. With Qt 5.12, we have placed performance and quality design squarely in the spotlight. As a result, developers can leverage a comprehensive set of tools that help ensure their UIs are visually appealing and lightning fast – and can be delivered to their customers faster than ever before.” Qt provides a centralized, cross-platform framework and unified ecosystem that enables developers to write their source code once and run it anywhere on one device. The new features and capabilities in Qt 5.12 have been designed to enable the quick and easy development of UIs, applications and embedded devices for a wide range of industries , including the automotive, medical device, automation, home entertainment, and IoT/IIoT sectors. Qt’s framework also supports the development of the back-end elements and business logic of apps and devices, including network connectivity and Bluetooth location services. Following are details on the primary features offered by Qt 5.12: • Long-Term Support (LTS): Qt 5.12 is long-term supported, which will result in a highly stable development timeline that will deliver a high degree of continuous user support. Qt 5.12 will be supported for three years, after which users can purchase extended support. Furthermore, as an LTS release, Qt 5.12 will receive multiple patch-level releases that provide bug fixes, improvements and security updates.• High Performance: Qt 5.12 continues Qt’s ongoing commitment to improved performance and reduced memory consumption, which were major areas of focus in Qt 5.9 (the previous LTS version of Qt). Qt 5.12 features a wide range of enhancements to Qt’s graphical functionalities, especially in terms of running Qt 3D and Qt Quick on embedded hardware. Additionally, Qt 5.12 provides robust support for asset conditioning, including support for pre-generated distance field caches of fonts, which provides faster startup times, especially with complex and non-Latin fonts. Finally, the QML engine has also received multiple improvements and enhancements: QML application startup time has been reduced by 52 percent compared to Qt 5.9 LTS, and QML memory usage has been cut down by 80 percent compared to Qt 5.6 LTS.• TableView: Qt 5.12 offers the availability of TableView in the Qt Quick module. TableView is similar to the existing ListView, but with additional support for the display of multiple columns. TableView was developed with performance in mind, and with architecture that allows the efficient handling of large tables.• Input Handling: With Qt 5.12, the new Input Handlers becomes a fully supported feature (previously known as Pointer Handlers, a new approach for mouse, touch and gesture event handling). The new functionalities aim to provide versatility, especially in multi-touch and multi-monitor applications, and enable many different input mechanisms in Qt applications – for example, based on hand gestures detected by a camera or a proximity sensor.• Full Support for Python, Remote Objects and WebGL Streaming Plugin: Qt 5.12 delivers an update to Qt for Python, initially released with Qt 5.11 as a technology preview. Qt for Python is a fully supported feature of Qt 5.12, and users can get started quickly and easily with Qt for Python via the PyPI (Python Package Index). Qt for Python opens up Qt to a a huge user base. Python is one of the fastest growing development languages. Everything you can do in C++ with Qt, you can now do with Python instead. In addition to Python, Qt Remote Objects and Qt WebGL Streaming Plugin are fully supported with Qt 5.12.• Designer & Developer Tools: Qt Design Studio 1.0 leverages a pre-release of Qt 5.12 and will support the final version of Qt 5.12 when available. Qt Creator 4.8 is planned to be released together with Qt 5.12, offering a rich set of new functionalities (such as support for multiple new programming languages and multiple simultaneous debugger sessions). As always, Qt Creator 4.8 will also work with earlier versions of Qt. Additionally, in December, Qt will release Qt 3D Studio 2.2, which is directly based on Qt 5.12 and takes advantage of the numerous 3D-related improvements of Qt 5.12. Qt 5.12 will be available on December 6, 2018. For more information, please visit the Qt 5.12 release page .

Autoliv Provides Update on European Commission Investigation and Announces $210 Million Accrual

As previously disclosed, since June 2011, Autoliv has been subject to an investigation of anti-competitive behavior among suppliers of occupant safety systems in the European Union (the “EC investigation”). Autoliv has been cooperating with the EC investigation. The EC previously concluded a discrete portion of its investigation in November 2017 and imposed a fine on the Company that was paid during the first quarter of 2018.Management now has reason to believe that the EC will seek to impose a fine in connection with the remaining portion of the EC investigation. According to management’s best estimation and based on the advice of our legal counsel, the Company will accrue $210 million in the fourth quarter of 2018 in connection with the remaining portion of the EC investigation. Any such fine from the EC will likely not be tax deductible. The Company believes that a fine could be issued during the first half of 2019, although this may be delayed. The fine would be payable within 90 days after the investigation is ultimately resolved and be denominated in euros.Inquiries:Corporate Communications: Stina Thorman, Tel +46 (0)8 587 206 50Investors & Analysts: Anders Trapp, Investor Relations, Tel +46 (0)8 587 206 71Investors & Analysts: Henrik Kaar, Investor Relations, Tel +46 (0)8 587 206 14This information is information that Autoliv, Inc. is obliged to make public pursuant to the EU Market Abuse Regulation.

Lund University and PHI partner to develop novel 3D cell culturing methods for immunotherapy research

The toxins used when treating cancer with chemotherapy act by being more toxic to the more metabolically active cancer cells than to the less active non-cancerous body cells. Metastatic cancer arises from small colonizing tumors. Unlike larger tumors, these microtumors lack the blood vessels supplying oxygen and nutrients needed for rapid cell division and elevated metabolic activity, making microtumors less susceptible to conventional chemotherapy. As a result, it is today still very difficult to treat metastatic cancer. As highlighted by this year's Nobel Prize in physiology or medicine, immunotherapy has the potential to radically improve cancer treatment. Instead of poisoning both cancer cells and normal cells, immunotherapies aim to stimulate the patient's own immune cells to specifically seek out and kill every single cancer cell, regardless of their metabolic activity. However, to fulfill this promise, cancer researchers need new laboratory methods to efficiently grow and non-invasively study 3-dimensional microtumors in large quantities, taking cancer research beyond the current practice of 2-dimensional cell cultures. Various market reports value the rapidly growing global 3D cell culture market to 600 – 1 400 million USD annually, with an expected compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 15 – 35 %. Contrary to conventional techniques, as confocal microscopy and flow cytometry, PHI's holo­graphic technology has the ability to non-invasively characterize the internal 3‑dimensional structure of living microtumors, making PHI’s core technology well adept to non-destructively monitor the growth and health status of laboratory cultured microtumors.

IX Australia deploys Smartoptics’ low cost 100G Open Line System

IX Australia is a member owned, not-for-profit peering exchange established in 1997 by the Internet Association of Australia Inc. (formally the Western Australian Internet Association Inc.) and operating 5 Peering Points throughout Australia accessed by major metropolitan data centers. Recently, IX Australia has decided to upgrade its metropolitan link capacities, to cater for the rapidly growing data traffic.  The new Smartoptics DCP-M40 Open Line System deployed by IX Australia enables up to 40x100G wavelengths over spans exceeding 50km with fully automated addition of new channels for ease of use. Space and power considerations were important factors in the technology choice due to the cost of colocation and available power in hosting facilities. The 1U form factor and max 45W power consumption for a fully loaded 40 channels system were significantly differentiating factors over more traditional coherent transponders.    With its new network, IX Australia will be able to provide new services to its members, while at the same time increasing overall capacity. A special feature of the network is its capability to embedded DWDM at 100G in QSFP28 form factor, using COLORZ© from Inphi. This has not been possible to date without use of expensive coherent CFP or CFP2 modules, usually not available for the most current and dense switching platforms.   The network is supplied by local Smartoptics VAD partner IDS, who will additionally manage after sales services in Australia.  Joe Wooller, Technical Manager at IX Australia says: “We are delighted to have been able to upgrade our network, based on the very modern Extreme 870, so easily and significantly increase available capacity at the lowest possible cost. We are now able to easily scale service flexibility and capacity just by adding new transceivers to our switches.

Proposal to resolve on redemption of shares (i)      Share split (ii)     Bonus issue (iii)    Reduction of the share capital through mandatory redemption of shares 1. Conclusion of the meeting Proposal to resolve on redemption of shares (item 7) The Board of Directors proposes that the general meeting resolves on redemption of shares for repayment to the shareholders in accordance with below (the “Redemption Program”). The Redemption Program implies that all outstanding shares shall be split into two shares after which a total of 120,592,332 shares are automatically redeemed at SEK 1.10 per share for repayment to the shareholders. An information brochure describing the Redemption Program will be presented in respect of the board of directors’ proposal. The information brochure will be available before the trading in redemption shares commences at the company’s website, www.strax.com, at the company’s office and will upon request be sent to shareholders who state their postal address. In light of the above, the Board of Directors proposes that the general meeting passes the following resolutions. (i) Share split The Board of Directors proposes that the company’s shares shall be split into two shares, of which one shall be designated redemption share. The Board of Directors is authorised to determine the record date for the share split. (ii) Bonus issue The Board of Directors proposes that the share capital shall be increased with EUR 12,624,164.563374 through a bonus issue.

The purpose of the reduction of the share capital is repayment to the shareholders, and in case the redemption consideration is less than the redemption amount due to the applicable exchange rate (below referred to as “Payment difference”), allocation to unrestricted shareholders’ equity. In such case, the allocation to unrestricted shareholders’ equity will be made with an amount corresponding to the Payment difference.

Report for DexTechs phase IIb-study for OsteoDex is ready

OsteoDex, the company´s phase 2b-project for treatment of advanced prostate cancer, mCRPC, is reported. The study is titled "A randomised, double-blind, dose-finding, repeat dose Phase II multicentre study of ODX for the treatment of patients with castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC) and skeletal metastases" and were done in Sweden Norrlands University hospital, Umeå, Södersjukhuset, Stockholm and Örebro University hospital), in Finland (Tampere University Hospital), in Estonia (East Tallin Central Hospital and Tartu University Hospital) and in Latvia (Riga East University Hospital and Daugavpils Regional Hospital). Fifty one percent of the patients completed the treatment (5 months, 2 doses/month). Of these, 52 % had stable disease post therapy (improved/stable) regarding the bone metastases. Thirty-five % of the patients showed decreased tumor burden in the skeleton post therapy. The majority of these had received 2nd, 3rd and 4th line therapy before OsteoDex therapy (Docetaxel/Cabataxel/Extandi/Zytiga/Xofigo). This finding is of great importance for OsteoDex continued clinical development since this patient category represent a significant unmet need. The results show that OsteoDex has a strong restraining effect on the vicious cycle, i.e. the biological process that progress the disease and shortens the survival. More than 50% of the patients showed significant decline of markers related to bone metabolism and an especially strong decline in 67% of the patients for marker associated with bone resorption. The efficacy on this bone marker and effects on the bone markers associated with bone metastases mirrors OsteoDex biological effect. Tolerability was strikingly good with only few side effects. No patients had to stop treatment because of side effects and no OsteoDex related serious adverse events (SAE) were recorded. The three dose arms showed equal treatment effect. No efficacy difference between the three dose arms was recorded. The interpretation can be that even the lowest dose is sufficient to saturate the metastatic sites in the skeleton. The results fulfill the primary objectives of the study protocol. Parts of the results, that has been reported previously, were presented at the BioEurope conference in Copenhagen, 5-7th of November and were received with great interest. The continuing clinical development of OsteoDex will be performed by a presumptive licensee. "-We are very pleased with the results from the study. Two findings are considered especially important, first that the high tolerability is confirmed with absence of serious side effects, and second that OsteoDex could reduce the tumor burden in patients that have few or no additional treatment alternatives. The importance of this is reflected in the response we received at BioEurope, says ceo Anders R Holmberg".

In the fourth quarter 2019 three systems in a verification project will be installed in Morocco jointly with the state-controlled Masen. From 2020 onwards, another 8–16 systems are expected to be installed in commercial projects, with volume production expected from 2021. Azelio’s market and customers The technology is well suited for areas that today lack access to a power grid or have no reliable power grids. The Company assesses that Azelio’s solution can be used to accelerate the rollout of electricity to the approximately one billion people around the sun belt who currently have no access to reliable electricity. The Company intends to sell its system to EPC-contractors which then install the system for the end customer. Future end customers may for instance be energy-intensive customers such as mining industry, cement industry and process industry.

Swedbank first Nordic bank to join the initiative Science Based Targets

Science Based Targets is a non-profit initiative founded by CDP, the formerly Carbon Disclosure Project, the UN Global Compact (UNCG), the World Resources Institute (WRI) and the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), which through scientific methods works to identify and support innovative methods for establishing meaningful goals for reducing greenhouse gases for companies. “Climate change is one of today's most important issues, and it is crucial that all countries, as well as companies, are ambitious and take an active part in driving the needed changes and make them happen. At present there is no comprehensive scientific method for financial companies and banks, and we look forward to contributing to the methodology that can result in relevant and scientific goals for our entire industry. It is particularly important that we continue to enable more sustainable choices for our customers, but also understand its impact on the conversion to a more sustainable future”, said Fredrik Nilzén, Head of Group Sustainability, Swedbank. Science Based Targets initiative believes that many companies understand the risks of climate change, and want to shoulder a strong leadership to support the necessary change in this area. By establishing scientific goals and gaining clear value-measurement for their respective industries, a company can contribute in driving the development in a positive and concrete direction moving forward. In 2014-2015, more than 80 percent of the world's 500 largest companies set targets for emission reductions or energy-specific ambitions. The next step to guarding the earlier investment companies have made when setting targets with their carbon footprint, is to ensure that the greenhouse gas reduction targets are consistent with the level recommended by climate experts to limit the worst effects of climate change.

Scania in consortium that aims to stimulate large scale roll out of gas-fuelled trucks across Europe

The consortium, comprising Shell, Disa, Scania, Osomo and Iveco will each deliver separate activities that will see 2,000 more LNG trucks on the road, 39 LNG fuelling stations and the construction of a BioLNG production plant in the Netherlands. The LNG Retail stations will form part of a pan-European network and be built in Belgium, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Poland and Spain. The stations will be located approximately every 400 km along core road network corridors from Spain to Eastern Poland. “LNG is an increasingly affordable fuel for heavy goods vehicles which will make it an important energy source as the transport sector evolves,” said Istvάn Kapitάny, Executive Vice President, Shell Retail. “Shell is committed to offering our customers more lower carbon energy and the new LNG Retail stations are a vital piece of the puzzle. I look forward to seeing this important network of stations welcome European motorists in the years to come.” The bioLNG facility will produce 3000 MT/year of BioLNG and will use biomethane produced from waste. This will be sold to end-users via the LNG network. “This program covers filling stations, biofuel production and subsidies which are all necessary for progressive customers to invest in the trucks, despite the extra initial cost,” say Jonas Nordh, Director Sustainable Transport Solutions, Scania. “Whilst LNG which reduces CO2emissions by about 20 percent, is more broadly available today, biogas, which reduces CO2emissions by over 90 percent, can increasingly be blended in with the natural as production of biogas is ramped up.”  BioLNG EuroNet has an aspiration to rollout the expansion of LNG as a road transport fuel across Europe even further in the future. About the project: · The BioLNG Euronet project is bringing together major players in the European market: Shell, DISA, Osomo, Scania and Iveco. These project partners aim to help the European Union meet its goal of a 60 percent reduction in CO2 emissions by 2030, by triggering long-term decarbonisation of heavy duty road transport across mainland Europe.  · The bioLNG facility to be constructed in the Netherlands will collect municipal waste from supermarkets and restaurants and process this into biogas. The technology will use new patented membrane separation technology that will enable biologically derived LNG.   · The 2,000 new LNG Heavy Goods Vehicles will be leased to end users through competitive financing and trucking solutions to reduce the cost of them. Only the additional costs of an LNG HGV compared to a diesel truck will be financed. The average eligible costs for each LNG truck are capped to a maximum of €30,000.  · The energy density of BioLNG means that trucks can travel longer distances, better suiting the needs of transport operators now, and in the future. Due to the use of industrial organic waste as a resource, the CO2 emissions will be much lower than the CO2 emissions of traditional fuels. BioLNG is essential in achieving the long-term aim of further decarbonisation for the road transport sector in Europe by 2030. BioLNG virtually eliminates sulphur and offers a reduction in NOx and particulate matter.  · Each BioLNG EuroNet consortium member will receive 20 percent funding from the EU towards the cost of their commitments. · The EU funding received by the BioLNG EuroNet consortium members falls under the connecting Europe facility (CEF) for the transport sector. · Directive 2014/94/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council of 22 October 2014 on the deployment of alternative fuels infrastructure defines a common framework of measures for the deployment of alternative fuels infrastructure in the European Union and to mitigate the environmental impact of transport. It sets out minimum requirements for the building-up of alternative fuels infrastructure, including LNG (Liquefied Natural Gas) and Compressed Natural Gas (CNG).

Fintech Disruptor 2019: Digital Relevance, Open architectures, Automation and Data - the new frontline in the battle for the cutomer

LONDON, 6 DECEMBER 2018. “Removing Roadblocks: The New Road of Fintech”published today by MagnaCarta in partnership with Klarna identifies four key elements critical to the future development of fintech — Relevance, Openness, Automation and Data. ·Relevance – organisations across the spectrum will need to understand their purpose and how to deploy technology to serve their customers ·Openness to partnership and cultural candidness, including a firm grasp of the new dynamics of competition ·Automation – understanding how, when and when not to automate processes ·Data and it’s use and value either as a profit pool or a source of purpose Michael Rouse, Chief Commercial Officer at Klarna, said: “At Klarna, we have a maniacal focus on what we are actually solving for customers and driving the optimal experience. This is not about falling in love with the product we are building but the solution we offer. The four elements defined as key for the future development of fintech in this report are highly relevant to this, as they are all critical to building customer oriented solutions. In the right mix, all of these elements can enable solutions which will empower customers in managing their daily financial life, so they can spend more time on what they love. A lot of time has been spent on making the technology work, as an industry let's start focusing more on how it works for consumers as that is where the real impact and value lies.” Fintech Disruptors 2019 surveyed 5,000 industry professionals across Europe, the Middle East and Africa. The report also provides strong evidence of a seismic shift in industry focus, away from new payments technologies and towards open banking and the application of artificial intelligence (AI) in fintech. Simon Hardie, Partner at MagnaCarta Communications, which runs the study, said: “Fintech is maturing as a sector. This year’s study shows a change from early-stage growth issues such as creating new and alternative payments methods towards more complex challenges such as the regulatory environment, how to apply AI and automation for customer benefit, and how best to manage increasing volumes of customer data.”Findings from the report include: ·37% of respondents cited payments as a major future investment area for fintech, compared with 71% in 2018. ·57% identified AI, automisation and digitisation as a key future investment focus, with more than half also citing open banking as a major area for investment. ·Established financial institutions are twice as likely as fintechs to deploy sophisticated data mining and interrogation techniques to their customer data. ·Surprisingly few (10% of those surveyed) use customer data to try to interpret what further products customers would like. ·41% of fintechs say they use AI techniques in their business, compared to 43% of financial institutions. ·Banks expressed record levels of interest in purchasing white-labelled fintech products for rebranding and use in their business (46% vs. 33% in 2018), and also in acquiring fintech companies (45% vs 22% in 2018). ·Interest in partnering with fintechs, still high at 68% for 2019, but the lowest figure recorded in three years (2017=78%; 2018 = 73%). ·Banks surveyed believe nearly a third of their overall revenues are at risk of being taken by fintechs.

Update on software issue impacting certain customers

Following network disturbances in a number of Ericsson’s (NASDAQ:ERIC) customer networks, Ericsson has taken immediate action to minimize impact and support the restoration of services. During December 6, 2018, Ericsson has identified an issue in certain nodes in the core network resulting in network disturbances for a limited number of customers in multiple countries using two specific software versions of the SGSN–MME (Serving GPRS Support Node – Mobility Management Entity). Börje Ekholm, President and CEO, Ericsson, says: “The faulty software that has caused these issues is being decommissioned and we apologize not only to our customers but also to their customers. We work hard to ensure that our customers can limit the impact and restore their services as soon as possible.” An initial root cause analysis indicates that the main issue was an expired certificate in the software versions installed with these customers. A complete and comprehensive root cause analysis is still in progress. Our focus is now on solving the immediate issues. During the course of December 6, most of the affected customers’ network services have been successfully restored. We are working closely with the remaining customers that are still experiencing issues.

We welcome Jesper Ohlenschlaeger and the rest of the team from Blockchain Nordic and very much look forward to working together as we build a progressive group that can benefit from the exceptional growth in the blockchain space.” Jesper Ohlenschlaeger, Chief Executive Officer, Blockchain Nordic, commented:“In order to become a Blockchain Powerhouse, to be part of RYVL makes perfect sense. We have seen an explosion in this industry over the last two years, but in order to continue to be the leading company in the northern part of Europe, and expand our activities into Asia and America, we need to be part of a bigger company. RYVL has a number of divisions that fits into our programme and strategy and as an enlarged group going forward we expect to deliver exceptional growth.” Further information on Blockchain Nordic and Terms of the Acquisition Blockchain Nordic was incorporated in October 2017 and has not published any financial statements to date.  Blockchain Nordic’s management are forecasting pro forma EBITDA of approximately €3.3 million for the year to 31 December 2018 and it had unaudited net assets of €3.9m as at 31 October 2018.

Finnair Traffic Performance in November 2018

Finnair Plc                 Investor News      7 December 2018 at 9:00 am Finnair Traffic Performance in November 2018 Strong growth in cargo supply and demand In November, Finnair carried 980,100 passengers, 3.2% more than in the corresponding period of 2017. The overall capacity measured in Available Seat Kilometres (ASK) increased in November by 7.2%. Finnair's traffic measured in Revenue Passenger Kilometres (RPKs) grew by 2.1%. The Passenger Load Factor (PLF) decreased year-on-year by -3.8% points to 74.6%.   Long-haul capacity remained at the reference period’s level as there were no changes in Finnair’s wide-body fleet year-on-year. The ASK growth in Asian traffic was down by -1.5% as some capacity was transferred from Asian routes to North American routes. The North American traffic was up by 19.4%, when flights to Chicago and San Francisco were extended to November. In European traffic the ASK growth was 19.1%, which derived from the increase in the narrow-body fleet size year-on-year and the additional seating capacity added to some of the existing narrow-body aircraft. The added capacity was directed at frequency additions to several destinations in Europe but focused more in to the longer southern Europe routes and to new route openings to Stuttgart, Lisbon and Minsk after the comparison period. ASK growth in domestic traffic was 5.3%. In November, RPKs grew slower than ASKs which was reflected in the passenger load factors. RPKs decreased by -5.3% in Asian traffic and grew in European traffic 11.4%, in North American traffic 18.9% and in domestic traffic 0.1%. The PLF was 77.5% in Asian traffic, 72.5% in European traffic, 75.2% in North American traffic, and 61.1% in domestic traffic. Passenger numbers declined in Asian traffic by -4.6% and in domestic traffic by -0.5% and increased in European traffic by 6.6% and in North American traffic by 19.1%  Available scheduled cargo tonne kilometres increased by 19.7% year-on-year. Revenue scheduled cargo tonne kilometres increased by 16.4% mostly driven by the strong positive cargo market development in Japan and Sweden. Additionally, favourable development was also visible in our Chinese routes. The total cargo traffic volume measured in tonnes increased by 11.2% from the comparison period.  In November 85.6% of all Finnair flights arrived on schedule (81.6%).  Traffic statistics for December 2018 will be published on Wednesday, 9 January 2019.

Professor Stig Steen’s heart preservation technology required for successful transplantation from pigs to baboons

The well-reputed scientific journal Nature published earlier this week an article from Munich University Hospital which describes, the long-term survival of baboons that had received a heart transplant from genetically modified pigs. This is an important step forward on the way to being able to give humans porcine heart transplants. The article describes two requirements that have enabled the good results. One of these requirements being the introduction of non-ischemic (no shortage of oxygen) heart preservation in accordance with the method using the products developed by Professor Stig Steen, and the other requirement being inhibition of post-transplantation growth of the heart, which otherwise would become too big for the primate. These good results are in accordance with earlier experience that have led to XVIVO, as earlier communicated, is working intensively on submitting an application to the Swedish Medical Products Agency. The submission is planned for in approximately one month and is a prerequisite for a multicenter study on XVIVO’s products for heart preservation. These products consist of a preservation solution which has the same composition as that clinically used in the heart transplant study ongoing at the University Hospitals of Lund, earlier pre-clinical studies and now pre-clinically used in Munich for heart preservation in xenotransplantation. The technology also includes a portable heart preservation machine incorporating a single-use component which has been constructed by XVIVO, in accordance with Professor Steen’s technology. “There is currently sufficient data available to be able to suppose that non-ischemic heart preservation is a safe technique and, as the company earlier communicated, that it is time to initiate a multicenter study with aim of regulatory approval,” says Magnus Nilsson, XVIVO Perfusion’s CEO.

Terranet signs cooperation agreement and markets joint venture with Waysure

Terranet has today entered into a strategic cooperation agreement with Waysure, whose focus is on absolute positioning with the primary use for autonomous driving. Waysure has developed a high accuracy GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System, such as GPS) with support for RTK (real-time kinematics) functionality. By utilizing existing satellite systems and mass-market components, Waysure is capable of achieving cm-level accuracy. Waysure algorithms are especially suitable for heavier vehicles, having already been utilized in the early stages of development and done several tests with leading truck manufacturers. In active vehicle safety, Terranet's unique strength lies in positioning using radio-based sensors, but also in relative positioning.  The combination of absolute and relative positioning reduces the effect of error sources in each system, providing improved accuracy and robustness. Multiple overlapping systems for positioning create a safe and efficient system that are a necessity. In relative positioning, the receiver's position is determined against one or more points of known position. By forming differences between the mutual measurement points, sources of error are thus reduced. “We are very pleased to be part of this cooperation. The aim is to jointly address a significant growth market and thus accelerate commercialization with a broader reach. It is natural for us to partner because both Terranet and Waysure target the same customer bases, have complementary technologies, and share large ecosystem partners enabling faster and deeper market traction.  Terranet can also leverage its existing relationship with Qualcomm.” says Terranet's CEO, Pär-Olof Johannesson. Next week, an interview will be conducted with Waysure’s CEO James Tidd.

Cantargia: Phase I safety evaluation part of CANFOUR trial of antibody CAN04 completed and phase IIa part being initiated

Cantargia is developing the antibody CAN04 for treatment of cancer. The ongoing phase I/IIa trial is primarily focused on treatment of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) and pancreatic cancer. CAN04 is directed against interleukin-1 receptor accessory protein (IL1RAP) which is found on tumor cells from a wide range of cancer forms. IL1RAP is also found on inflammatory immune cells involved in cancer progression. Interim phase I data from 16 patients was presented at the ESMO conference in October 2018 and showed a good safety profile up to 6 mg/kg, a decrease in the biomarkers IL-6 and CRP and stable disease in 38 % of patients. The formal phase I safety evaluation part has now been completed at 10 mg/kg and no DLTs were observed at this dose level. In total, 22 patients have received CAN04 and the safety profile is good with the most common side effects being infusion related reactions associated with the first infusion. The trial will continue into the phase IIa part which will study both CAN04 as monotherapy as well as combination therapy in patients with NSCLC or pancreatic cancer. Combination agents will be cisplatin and gemcitabine in NSCLC and gemcitabine and nab-paclitaxel in pancreatic cancer. The phase IIa part is planned to be performed at approximately 20 clinical sites in up to 7 countries and include 80-90 patients. Screening of patients for phase IIa is now being initiated, with the aim to start treatment as soon as possible. ”We are very excited to have passed one additional important milestone. The safety profile of CAN04 continue to look very good and I am very happy that we can advance into phase IIa clinical development,” said Göran Forsberg, CEO of Cantargia. Several patients from phase I are still being treated with CAN04 and have not yet been evaluated for biomarkers and efficacy. Cantargia plans to present the complete phase I data during a scientific conference during first half of 2019. Based on the positive outcome of phase I, Cantargia plans to start the discussions with the US FDA with the goal to obtain an IND during H1 2019.

Final dog study results

Earlier in 2018, preliminary results were released from Panion’s safety study in dogs, conducted in cooperation with the University of Copenhagen. The study tested the reactions and potential adverse effects of the intracranial injection of the gene therapy vector in experimental beagle dogs. The final pathology report has now been received and the results show that there were no treatment-related adverse effects in the dogs. Minor, incidental findings were either only observed in the control dogs or in all dogs including the control dogs. The medical treatment data have been cleaned and analyzed. Only one dog in the study – from the control group - had a serious disease event that required medicinal treatment (pyometra, i.e. inflammation of the birth canal) after the time of vector administration. Since this was an untreated control dog, this event was obviously not caused by the product. The data for body weight gain was analyzed with special interests, because it is known that the active protein of the gene therapy product, NPY, may stimulate food intake significantly, at least in some parts of the brain. It was therefore assumed that there could be an increase in body weight in the treated dogs. However, all dogs, both treated and controls, had equivalent increases in body weight of approximately 3% when comparing end-of study weight to pre-treatment weight. This confirms initial results seen in earlier studies in both dogs and rats with intracranial treatment with vectors carrying genes for NPY. Based on these data, there seems not to be a concern for increase in body weight as a cause of treatment. No other serious or product-related adverse event has been observed in the study. “These results have been awaited with tension, as they are the ultimate proof from this study that the treatment is well-tolerated and mild for the dogs. This is very important for the upcoming clinical study in family dogs with epilepsy. The results are very promising for the further development of our gene therapy product.” says Anja Holm, CEO of Panion. The final study report is expected to be available by the end of Q4-18. Investor meetingPanion’s CEO, Anja Holm, will hold an investor meeting at Mangold’s premises in Stockholm on 14 December. Anja will describe Panion’s activities and ongoing research in gene therapy for the treatment of epilepsy-like conditions in dogs.

With our larger scale, more resources and our engaged and talented people, we will improve our ability to take on even larger and more complex assignments, meeting our clients’ needs for advanced sustainable solutions for the future generations.” Martin à Porta, President and CEO of Pöyry, comments: “Pöyry has come a long way since commencing its client-focused transformation program in 2016. We have built a high-performance organization and nurtured a modern culture of intrapreneurship and innovation. I am immensely proud of Pöyry’s talented intrapreneurs who have contributed to nine consecutive quarters of results growth, a strong cash position and a healthy order stock. ÅF and Pöyry together form a new Nordic knowledge giant, a leading developer and supplier of sustainable technological solutions. By combining and connecting our resources, in-depth expertise and multidisciplinary skills, we will scale up a much stronger platform with international coverage, and be positioned to better service the evolving needs of clients. I also believe that the combination is good for the employees as the cultures of the both companies are based on same set of Nordic values. Our intrapreneurs have the ambition, energy and ideas to take things to the next level.” Anders Narvinger, Chairman of ÅF’s Board of Directors, comments: “The combination of ÅF and Pöyry has for long been considered logical and now we have the opportunity to take that step.

For these reasons, the Board of Directors of Pöyry has unanimously decided to recommend that the shareholders of Pöyry accept the Tender Offer.” Background ÅF and Pöyry operate in an industry in rapid transformation. Through societal trends such as climate change, resource efficiency and fast-pace digitalization, clients are facing new and increasing demands in the forms of sustainability, transformation of energy markets, bioeconomy, smarter cities and new models of transportation. In parallel, the business environment is rapidly changing and markets for professional services are consolidating. These trends are key drivers for change and a strong rationale for coming together as a combined company. ÅF and Pöyry intend to combine to form a leading European engineering and consulting company. The combined company’s common foundations lie within their shared Nordic culture, an entrepreneurial spirit, high performance and leading knowhow, customer focus, skilled employees, qualified brands and sustainable identity, all of which values will be cherished and will be continued to be built on after the combination. Together, ÅF and Pöyry have long heritage in cutting-edge engineering and advisory. The combination of these two leading companies and brands is expected to create a very competitive player within the European market with a strong platform for international growth. Together, ÅF and Pöyry are expected to gain a strong position to meet the needs of clients, and ultimately contribute to sustainable societies. Overview of the combined company The combined company will operate under the united brand ÅF-Pöyry and the businesses will be divided into five divisions, each with a strong Nordic and international presence. The combined company’s combined revenue for the twelve months ended September 30, 2018 was approximately SEK 19 billion (ÅF: SEK 13.5 billion; Pöyry: EUR 553.2 million (calculated using the ECB’s exchange rate of 10.3090 on September 30, 2018)) and it had a combined total of approximately 14,550 FTE employees globally on average for the nine months ended September 30, 2018. The combined company’s name is suggested to be changed to ÅF-Pöyry AB at the EGM conditional upon the completion of the Tender Offer. After the completion of the Tender Offer, ÅF’s shares will continue to be listed on Nasdaq Stockholm. Strategy The combined company will continue to build on offering leading innovative sustainable solutions to its clients. Due to the magnitude of the proposed combination for both ÅF and Pöyry, the combined company’s divisional structure will be adjusted. New divisions of the combined company are expected to be: · Infrastructure, led by Mats Påhlsson · Energy, led by Richard Pinnock · Process Industries, led by Nicholas Oksanen · Industrial and Digital Solutions, led by Robert Larsson · Management Consulting, led by Martin à Porta Corporate governance The combined company’s President and CEO will be Jonas Gustavsson, and the head office will be located in Stockholm. The Board of Directors of ÅF is expected to remain the same until the completion of the Tender Offer. ÅForsk has undertaken to support the election of Henrik Ehrnrooth, the Chairman of the Board of Directors of Pöyry, as a board member at the EGM (expected to be held on or about January 10, 2019) for a term ending at the end of the next annual general meeting of ÅF conditional upon the completion of the Tender Offer and the registration of the Directed Share Issue. ÅForsk has also undertaken to support the election of Henrik Ehrnrooth and one additional representative of certain large shareholders of Pöyry to the Board of Directors of ÅF at the annual general meeting in 2019 conditional upon the completion of the Tender Offer and the Directed Share Issue. Employees For the nine months ended September 30, 2018, ÅF employed approximately 9,900 FTE employees on average and Pöyry employed approximately 4,650 FTE employees on average. The combined company intends to continue to build on the highly competent, experienced and well-recognized employees of the two companies after the combination. ÅF believes that the combination of ÅF and Pöyry will be mutually beneficial for both companies, and will provide the employees with improved opportunities for further competence development, both cross border and cross segment. Rationale and key benefits of the combination Creating a robust platform for growth – stronger partner for clients By joining forces, ÅF and Pöyry expect to create a robust platform to drive international growth. Its broad skills, expertise and international coverage, are expected to enable ÅF‑Pöyry to deliver a more extensive range of innovative sustainable solutions, access to leading competence and knowhow, and to have the capacity and capabilities to do this on an international level. This will create value for its clients and shareholders, and ultimately contribute to sustainable societies. Combining two players in Europe with highly complementary businesses ÅF‑Pöyry is expected to become a competitive European and global player. Pöyry’s focus areas in pulp & paper and energy complement ÅF’s current offering in segments such as automotive, advanced manufacturing and food and pharma. Digital solutions are at the core of both businesses and are expected to be a key competence to leverage across all divisions. ÅF’s strong capabilities in digital solutions are also expected to be important to further strengthen Pöyry’s reputable management consulting business in the combined company. Pöyry will also complement ÅF’s position in infrastructure. In the combined company, there will be approximately 5,700 infrastructure experts working throughout Europe. Strengthened international presence The combined company will have a greater international presence and the potential to profitably increase the pace of internationalization. Pöyry is currently present in approximately 20 countries where ÅF currently is not. From the strong bases in Sweden and Finland, ÅF‑Pöyry is expected to have a solid presence throughout the Nordic region, Switzerland, Germany, Austria, the Czech Republic, Brazil and South-East Asia. Within infrastructure, architecture, design and digital solutions, ÅF possesses capabilities with significant international potential that the combined company can leverage. The combined company’s scale and wider geographical presence is also expected to open up new opportunities for its employees and take the combined company closer to its clients, who increasingly expect an offering with a global reach. Synergies through economies of scale Size and economies of scale are becoming increasingly important in the industry in which ÅF and Pöyry operate, with respect to, for example, developing proprietary offerings and solutions and attracting talented employees. The combined company’s combined revenue for the twelve months ended September 30, 2018 was approximately SEK 19 billion (ÅF: SEK 13.5 billion; Pöyry: EUR 553.2 million (calculated using the ECB’s exchange rate of 10.3090 on September 30, 2018)) and will have a presence in approximately 45 countries. This is expected to increase the combined company’s capabilities and its capacity to invest in growing segments, as well as to deliver leading expertise, insights and services to its clients. At the same time, the combined company is expected to have potential for cost synergies through, for example, information system efficiencies, decreased public company costs, lower general and administrative costs as well as facility and operating structure efficiencies. Similar corporate culture ÅF and Pöyry share a Nordic industrial heritage and have a favorable cultural fit. Both companies are high-performance organizations with a strong entrepreneurial spirit, and they share the philosophy of engaging employees to drive innovation as part of their culture. In addition, both ÅF and Pöyry are publicly listed companies with long histories and experience in the markets. ÅF and Pöyry share the ambition to drive transformation in their respective industries and to provide leading expertise and sustainable solutions for their clients. Building on the strengths of both organizations – an even more attractive employer The combined company is expected to build on the strengths of both organizations. The management team and the managers of the business areas in the combined company are expected to consist of individuals from both ÅF and Pöyry. ÅF is considered one of the leading employers by engineers in Sweden and both ÅF’s and Pöyry’s brands have strong brand heritage and brand equity. The united brand will reflect the importance of the respective brands in client and employee relations. The combination is expected to give the combined company a stronger position in its markets and the combined company is expected to be an even more attractive employer through increased opportunities for competence development and international careers for its employees. New major shareholders with a long-term industrial perspective The Ehrnrooth, Pöyry and Herlin families, major shareholders of Pöyry and having a long industrial heritage in Finland, have irrevocably undertaken to subscribe for shares in the Directed Share Issue and in the Rights Issue. As a result, they are expected to become major shareholders of ÅF-Pöyry. Shareholder value creation and financial impact The combination is expected to result in significant benefits for stakeholders of the combined company, including creation of significant shareholder value through estimated annual cost synergies of approximately SEK 180 million, which are expected to be implemented in full by 2020. Expected sources of cost synergies include, for example, information system efficiencies, decreased public company costs, lower general and administrative costs as well as facility and operating structure efficiencies. In addition, there is also potential for revenue synergies that are expected to be reflected in, for example, increased competitiveness for various project engagements, size and scale advantages in core countries, utilization of combined expertise in highly complementary areas (such as management consulting, pulp & paper, mining and energy) and a combined international footprint. Integration costs are estimated to correspond to approximately one year of cost synergies. The integration costs are expected to be incurred in 2019. The combination is expected to be accretive to ÅF’s earnings per share adjusted for transaction related items in 2019 and accretive to ÅF’s earnings per share from 2020. As a consequence of the transaction, the net debt position of the combined company will increase. ÅF expects to reach the financial target of net debt in relation to EBITDA of 2.5 again by 2020. Financing of the Tender Offer Debt Financing ÅF has secured fully committed debt financing for the completion of the Tender Offer and the mandatory redemption proceedings, if any, from SEB and SHB. The availability to ÅF of the above-mentioned debt financing is subject to the completion of the Tender Offer and certain customary conditions within ÅF’s control. In addition, ÅF has secured relevant waivers in relation to its existing financing arrangements. Equity Financing In order to finance the partial repayment of the above-mentioned debt financing, ÅF will convene the EGM to authorize the Board of Directors of ÅF to decide, conditional upon the completion of the Tender Offer, on (i) the Directed Share Issue to certain large shareholders of Pöyry to raise gross proceeds of approximately SEK 1,210 million and (ii) the Rights Issue to raise gross proceeds of approximately SEK 2,790 million. ÅF expects to convene the EGM to be held on or about January 10, 2019. ÅForsk, representing approximately 14.3 percent of the shares and 37.5 percent of the votes in ÅF, has irrevocably undertaken to attend the EGM and to support (i) the authorizations relating to the Directed Share Issue and the Rights Issue and (ii) any ancillary proposals by the Board of Directors of ÅF at the EGM. In addition, ÅForsk has irrevocably undertaken not to offer, sell, transfer, charge, pledge, lend, grant any option over or otherwise dispose of any shares in ÅF or the economic interest they provide, whether directly or indirectly, on or before the EGM resolving upon the Rights Issue has been held. In the Directed Share Issue, a total of approximately 6.6 million class B shares, representing 7.8 percent of shares and 5.8 percent of votes in ÅF after the completion of the Directed Share Issue, are expected to be offered to certain large shareholders of Pöyry, i.e., Corbis S.A., Procurator-Holding Oy, Mariatorp Oy and Wipunen varainhallinta oy. Subject to certain conditions, Corbis S.A., Procurator-Holding Oy, Mariatorp Oy and Wipunen varainhallinta oy have, in their respective subscription undertakings, committed to subscribe and pay for 4,926,020, 939,900, 361,498 and 349,448 new class B shares in ÅF, respectively, in the Directed Share Issue as soon as reasonably practicable following the completion of the Tender Offer and otherwise in accordance with the terms and conditions of the Directed Share Issue. The subscription price in the Directed Share Issue will be SEK 184.03 per share, representing the volume-weighted average trading price of the class B shares in ÅF on Nasdaq Stockholm for five trading days immediately preceding the announcement of the Tender Offer. The Directed Share Issue is expected to be completed during the first quarter of 2019. The Rights Issue is expected to be launched following the Directed Share Issue during the first half of 2019. The shareholders of Pöyry subscribing for class B shares in ÅF in the Directed Share Issue have, in their respective subscription undertakings, committed to subscribe and pay for such new shares in the Rights Issue which corresponds to their pro rata allocation in the Rights Issue based on the shares acquired in the Directed Share Issue, as soon as reasonably practicable after the completion of the Directed Share Issue. Each shareholder of Pöyry who has undertaken to subscribe for new class B shares in ÅF in the Directed Share Issue and new shares in the Rights Issue will not be obligated to subscribe for shares for amounts exceeding, in the aggregate, 50 percent of the aggregate offer price in the Tender Offer for the Shares held by such shareholder. ÅForsk intends to subscribe for its pro rata allocation of class A shares in the Rights Issue. In addition, ÅF has an offer from SEB and SHB for the underwriting of the remainder of the Rights Issue, subject to customary terms and conditions. Subject to certain exceptions, each shareholder of Pöyry who has undertaken to subscribe for new class B shares in ÅF in the Directed Share Issue and new shares in the Rights Issue has also agreed to a lock-up arrangement ending on the earlier of (i) 180 days after the date of the consummation of the Directed Share Issue and (ii) September 30, 2019. Tender Offer ÅF and Pöyry have today entered into the Combination Agreement pursuant to which ÅF will make a voluntary recommended public cash tender offer to acquire all of the Shares. A brief summary of the Combination Agreement has been provided below in the section “Combination Agreement.” The offer price is EUR 10.20 per share in cash. The offer price represents a premium of: · 45.7 percent compared to EUR 7.00, i.e., the closing price of the Pöyry share on Nasdaq Helsinki on December 7, 2018, the last trading day immediately preceding the announcement of the Tender Offer; · 36.2 percent compared to EUR 7.49, i.e., the three-month volume-weighted average price of the Pöyry share on Nasdaq Helsinki immediately preceding the announcement of the Tender Offer; and · 60.3 percent compared to EUR 6.36, i.e., the twelve-month volume-weighted average price of the Pöyry share on Nasdaq Helsinki immediately preceding the announcement of the Tender Offer. In the event that the number of Shares increases or Pöyry issues special rights entitling to Shares in accordance with Chapter 10 of the Finnish Companies Act (624/2006, as amended) prior to the date of completion of the Tender Offer, ÅF will have the right to adjust the offer price accordingly. If a decision is made at a general meeting of shareholders of Pöyry or by the Board of Directors of Pöyry prior to the date of completion of the Tender Offer to distribute dividends or other assets to which a holder of Shares who has accepted the Tender Offer is entitled, an amount equal to the dividend or distribution per Share will be deducted from the offer price. After ÅF obtains more than 90 percent of all Shares and voting rights carried by the Shares, ÅF will initiate mandatory redemption proceedings for the remaining Shares in accordance with the Finnish Companies Act and, thereafter, Pöyry will apply for delisting of its shares from Nasdaq Helsinki. The offer period of the Tender Offer is expected to commence on or about December 20, 2018 and is expected to expire on or about January 31, 2019. ÅF reserves the right to extend the offer period in accordance with the terms and conditions of the Tender Offer.

As of September 30, 2018, the Company had 75 employees. Azelio’s technology and development The Company’s Stirling engine is commercially applied, having accumulated over two million operating hours and 172 installations globally, while the subsystem for thermal energy storage has been validated in demonstration plant in June 2018, but has not yet been commercially applied. Over the period 2018–2020 the Company will focus on the industrialization of the system’s design, construction and production. In the fourth quarter 2019 three systems in a verification project will be installed in Morocco jointly with the state-controlled Masen.

Cantargia presents new positive preclinical data on antibody CAN04 at major antibody conference

Cantargia is developing the antibody CAN04 for treatment of cancer. CAN04 is investigated in the CANFOUR phase I/IIa clinical trial and is entering the phase IIa part of that study. The trial is primarily focused on treatment of NSCLC and pancreatic cancer. CAN04 is directed against IL1RAP which is found on tumor cells from a large number of cancer forms including NSCLC. IL1RAP is also found on inflammatory immune cells contributing to the cancer progression. Positive phase I interim data in heavily pretreated patients was presented in October 2018 at ESMO, showing good safety, effects on relevant biomarkers and stable disease in 38 % of patients. CAN04 blocks the signaling induced by both IL-1α and IL-1β. Both forms of IL-1 have a role in cancer progression and resistance against various cancer therapies. The new results show that both IL-1α and IL-1β is expressed in tumors from patients with NSCLC, supporting CAN04 therapy to counteract tumor progression and have advantages compared to antibodies against only one of the different forms of IL-1. Cantargia has previously reported that CAN04 combined with the chemotherapy cisplatin generate synergistic effects in a PDX model of NSCLC. Cantargia now also reports data from mice with a fully functional immune system using the MC38 model. The advantage of this model is that effects on the immune system can be studied in addition to effects on the cancer cells themselves. In this setting, the combination has an even stronger effect, strengthening the relevance of CAN04 to target the cancer cells as well as the whole tumor microenvironment and CAN04 as a treatment that can block resistance mechanisms in the tumor. The new data will be presented as a poster presentation December 10 as well as in a later oral presentation by Dr David Liberg, VP Cancer Research at Cantargia. In addition to the presentation of new data, Cantargia’s CEO Dr Göran Forsberg has been invited to give a talk entitled “IL1RAP as a therapeutic target” December 11. ”The novel results presented give further scientific support for our development strategy of CAN04 in NSCLC. Two presentations at this major conference confirms the interest in our technology and increase Cantargia’s international exposure,” said Göran Forsberg, CEO of Cantargia. The poster presentation is available at www.cantargia.com.

About CantargiaCantargia AB (publ), reg. no. 556791-6019, is a biotechnology company that develops antibody-based treatments for life-threatening diseases.

2cureX is accelerating the launch of IndiTreat®

2cureX is currently operating three clinical validation studies with IndiTreat® in colorectal, ovarian and pancreatic cancer together with clinical partners. The product has received CE-IVD marking, which means that 2cureX is entitled to sell IndiTreat® tests on the EES market. The fact that the IndiTreat® test is currently being clinically validated in three cancer indications has attracted great interest from oncologists and hospitals. 2cureX has therefore identified a strategic possibility to initiate a pre-launch of IndiTreat® in selected markets already in the second half of 2019. The clinical validation studies will be ongoing along with the market pre-launch, but the company assesses that early clinical data from the ongoing studies will be enough to initiate the market pre-launch followed by a potential earlier than expected market launch. The pre-launch and a potential earlier market launch will not only enhance the possibility of successful treatment of cancer patients but also enable to generate earlier cash flow for 2cureX. 2cureX assesses that the capital need will arise during the first half of 2019 in order to successfully pre-launch IndiTreat® during the second half of 2019. As stated in the memorandum released prior to the IPO in October 2017, 2cureX has a capital need of approximately SEK 20 million to successfully launch IndiTreat®. The accelerated market launch will not require additional capital and it will not affect the objectives communicated in connection with 2cureX’s IPO in October 2017.

The information was submitted for publication, through the agency of the contact person set out above, on December 10th, 2018. About 2cureX 2cureX has developed a test called IndiTreat® (Individual Treatment Design), which is a patented and CE-IVD marked test for selecting the right drug for the right patient. IndiTreat® establishes thousands of 3D micro-tumors that are functionally similar to the patient’s tumor. From a large panel of approved cancer treatments IndiTreat® presents the best treatment for the individual patient. IndiTreat® is expected to become a standard tool in the treatment design for cancer patients. IndiTreat® is currently being clinically validated in colorectal, ovarian and pancreatic cancer. The company is listed at the Nasdaq First North stock exchange in Stockholm (symbol “2CUREX”).

Oslo, Norway - 10 December, 2018 - Cxense ASA (OSE: CXENSE) today announced that three leading Dutch publishers Sanoma Media, Telegraaf Media Groep, and de Persgroep have signed an agreement to use Cxense DMP for their joint data alliance initiative NLProfiel. Together, the publishers reach over 60 percent of the Dutch population and run an average of 3.5 billion page views per month. The contract will make NLProfiel the largest Cxense customer in EMEA in terms of monthly page views and users. The publishers established NLProfiel in order to meet advertisers’ needs for standardized, high-value audience segments from trusted media sources. Cxense DMP will serve as the common data management platform for all publishers in the NLProfiel alliance. The solution will be used to aggregate audience data, create standardized and bespoke segments, and make them available for programmatic and direct advertising campaigns.

This will create a superior and safe environment for all stakeholders," says Wouter Hulst, Program Manager at NLProfiel. "We chose Cxense DMP as the data engine for NLProfiel because of their proven track record with other data alliances, their scalable and feature-rich platform, and their capabilities in data science and integrations,” summarizes Hulst. “We are excited to support NLProfiel in their effort to help Dutch publishers become more data-driven and create a powerful, unified ecosystem that drives their advertising business.” says Christian Printzell Halvorsen, Cxense CEO. “Data alliances are becoming increasingly important for publishers. Because we cooperate with many of them, we understand what it takes for them to be successful. Going forward we want to use that expertise to help more publishers play to their strengths as local brands with strong reader relationships and win back advertising revenues from global platforms,” explains Halvorsen. With this agreement, Cxense has firmly established itself as a preferred partner for data alliances across Europe.

Scania delivers fuel cell refuse truck

“We are highly interested in gaining more experience of fuel cells in actual customer operations,” says Project Manager Marita Nilsson, Electric Powertrain Technology at Scania. “Fuel cells constitute a promising technology in the needed decarbonisation of transports.” Refuse trucks often operate in residential areas in the early hours of the morning. With reduced emissions and noise, electric vehicles are especially attractive in these areas. Renova and other waste handling companies have previously carried out trials with electric refuse trucks but this will be the first with fuel cells. “Electrification using fuel cells fuelled by hydrogen is a highly appealing alternative for heavy commercial vehicles such as refuse trucks,” says Hans Zackrisson, Head of Development at Renova. “The trucks benefit from all the advantages of electrification while maintaining some of the best aspects of fossil-fuel operations, namely range, hours in service and payload.” The project is being implemented in cooperation with the Swedish Energy Agency and Stockholm’s Royal Institute of Technology and the fuel cell refuse truck is expected to be delivered in the end of 2019/beginning of 2020. Scania has previously announced that it is developing fuel cell technology in cooperation with the Norwegian food wholesaler Asko, which has opened its own production plant for sustainable hydrogen fuel. Scania is delivering four distribution fuel cell trucks with a range of 500 km to Asko.

PowerCell cooperate with Scania and Renova in a joint project to build a refuse truck with fuel cells

The English version is an in house-translation. In case of any discrepancy, the Swedish text will prevail To help fund the project to build an electrified truck the four companies have jointly applied for aand been granted a governmental subsidy from the Swedish Energy Agency within the framework, Strategic Vehicle Research and Innovation, FFI. FFI is a partnership between the Swedish Government and the automotive industry for the joint funding of research, innovation and development. FFI focuses on the areas of Climate, Environment and Safety. The Royal Institute of Technology, KTH, will also participate in the project which comprises development, construction and operation of the truck. The fuel cell refuse truck is expected to be delivered in the end of 2019/beginning of 2020. “Electrification using fuel cells and hydrogen is a very interesting alternative for heavy-duty commercial vehicles such as refuse trucks”, Hans Zackrisson, Head of development at Renova, said. “The trucks get all the advantages of an electric vehicle but at the same time keep some of the benefits of propulsion using fossil fuels, like range, running time and payload capacity.” Refuse trucks often operate in housing areas and during early hours and provide an attractive case for electrification as an electric drive results in both a reduction of noise and emissions. Renova and other refuse companies have prior carried out field tests with electric refuse trucks, but this is the first time the electrification will be done using fuel cells. Pending a more comprehensive network of hydrogen filling stations, the CEO of PowerCell, Per Wassén, sees refuse trucks as an ideal first step in the electrification of heavy-duty commercial vehicles. “Refuse trucks operate on fixed routes and always return to the starting point at the end of the shift, which greatly reduce their dependency on external filling stations. As the network of hydrogen filling stations is expanding across Europe, propulsion using fuel cells will become a very attractive alternative and pave the way for the unavoidable transformation of the commercial vehicle industry.” For further information, please contact: Andreas Bodén, Director of salesPowerCell Sweden AB (publ)Phone: +46 (0) 31 720 36 30Email: andreas.boden@powercell.se About PowerCell Sweden AB (publ)PowerCell Sweden AB (publ) develops and produces fuel cell stacks and systems for stationary and mobile applications with a world class energy density.

SAS EuroBonus introduces Point Sharing and Lifetime Gold

The initiatives are a part of a series of new services and improvements within the SAS EuroBonus program. During 2019, even more new offers will follow.    “What unites the growing community of SAS’ frequent travelers is to travel smarter and better. Their ideas and feedback are crucial when we develop new offers. Lifetime Gold membership and Point Sharing are great examples of this,” says Johan Mägi, Head of EuroBonus at SAS. Commencing from today, SAS will introduce EuroBonus Point Sharing that allows friends and families to pool, share and collect points together for free.  “A growing number of travelers share experiences and collect points from flights, through car rental, shopping, or many other offers from our partners. Sharing points is a great way to get those desired experiences faster, be it a bonus weekend getaway, a flight upgrade, a free hotel night, or any of the many options that SAS EuroBonus points offer,” Mägi says.  With EuroBonus Point Sharing, a member can simply create a Point Sharing account and invite up to seven friends or family members to join the group. All EuroBonus points earned by the individual members are pooled in the shared account to be used for anything the EuroBonus program offers. EuroBonus members can be part of one Point Sharing group at a time, but they can always change or leave groups every six months.   SAS will also introduce a new version of Lifetime Gold membership to reward the most dedicated members.  “We have a unique group of loyal travelers who choose SAS for their extensive traveling, year after year. Lifetime Gold is our way to thank those members with our most precious reward, to enjoy the exclusive service of SAS EuroBonus Gold status for life,” Mägi says.    Travelers of any age can be awarded Lifetime Gold, if they qualify for minimum SAS EuroBonus Gold status through either basic point accrual or qualifying flight segments during ten consecutive years.

According to Tele2’s and Telenor's updated plan, the shared mobile network will be expanded by more than 50 percent, resulting in thousands of new base stations across Sweden. This is valuable for the already established 4G network and ensures the joint plan to provide the first customers with access to 5G functionality by 2020. 5G roll-out will commence in the major cities of Sweden, followed by significant summer and winter resorts. During spring 2019, a detailed plan for the country will be published and updated continuously, as construction starts in each region and municipality. – The mobile network is the backbone of Tele2 and we are proud of what our fast and secure network will enable for our customers.

After having built a national 2G and 4G network together that today covers 99.9 percent of Sweden's population, the new agreement provides a good foundation for the forthcoming 5G expansion. – Our 5G expansion is both aggressive and ambitious, which we are very proud of. The nationwide 5G network will provide even better coverage, faster connection, reduced latency and higher capacity, which is a prerequisite for the increasing number of devices. At the same time, our investments continue to strengthen the existing 4G network in the country, says Stefan Jäverbring, CTO at Telenor Sweden.

Quimper announces a cash offer of SEK 55 per share to the shareholders of Ahlsell that cannot be increased

Quimper AB (a private limited liability company, that has been or will be indirectly invested in by CVC Funds) (“Quimper”)[1], hereby announces a public offer to the shareholders of Ahlsell AB (publ) (“Ahlsell” or the "Company") to tender all their shares in Ahlsell to Quimper at a price of SEK 55.00[2] in cash per share (the “Offer”). The price in the Offer cannot be increased by Quimper. The shares in Ahlsell are listed on Nasdaq Stockholm, Large Cap.  Summary · Quimper offers SEK 55.002 in cash per Ahlsell share. The total value of the Offer, based on the 326,723,864 shares[3] in Ahlsell not directly or indirectly owned by Quimper, or closely related parties[4], amounts to approximately SEK 17,970 million. · Quimper will not increase the Offer price of SEK 55.00. By this statement Quimper cannot, in accordance with the Takeover Rules, increase the price in the Offer. · The price offered for the shares represents a premium of 32.5 percent to the closing price for the shares on 10 December 2018 (the last day of trading prior to the announcement of the Offer), and a premium of 24.8 percent to the volume-weighted average trading price for the shares over the last 10 trading days ended 10 December 2018. · The price offered for the shares represents a premium of 23.9 percent compared to the price in the initial public offering of Ahlsell including paid out dividends since the listing (offer price of SEK 55.00 plus dividends since the listing of SEK 2.00 as compared to the listing price of SEK 46.00). · An offer document regarding the Offer is expected to be published on or about 19 December 2018. The acceptance period for the Offer is expected to begin on or about 20 December 2018 and expire on or about 11 February 2019. Søren Vestergaard-Poulsen, a Managing Partner at CVC, said: “We are very excited by the opportunity for CVC Funds to continue their long-standing partnership with Ahlsell, which we believe is a true industry leader with a multi-channel approach and a robust business model. Our experience and history with the company provides us with the ability to help it grow further across its core segments and industries, delivering top quality services and value for all stakeholders. We look forward to continuing to work with the existing management team at Ahlsell and develop the company further under private ownership. We believe that the offer price represents a full and fair valuation for Ahlsell. Given the specific circumstances of the offer for Ahlsell – including CVC Funds' existing stake in Ahlsell – and in the interests of maximising transparency and bringing the offer to a conclusion in a timely manner, Quimper is presenting the market with a best-and-final offer price that cannot be increased." Discussions with Ahlsell Quimper notified the Chairman of the board of directors of Ahlsell about the terms of the Offer on 10 December 2018. Quimper confirms that it will seek a recommendation of the Offer from the independent directors of Ahlsell. Quimper issued the announcement today to provide Ahlsell shareholders with enough time to evaluate the terms of the Offer before the Christmas holiday period. Background and reasons for the Offer Ahlsell has been part of CVC Funds' portfolio since 2012 when CVC Funds initially acquired Ahlsell. In 2016, CVC Funds as the principal owner, through Keravel, executed Ahlsell's initial public offering of its shares on Nasdaq Stockholm. After the listing, CVC Funds have maintained the role of principal shareholder in Ahlsell. Today, as of 11 December 2018, Keravel holds 25.1 percent of the share capital and the voting rights in Ahlsell. CVC considers Ahlsell to be a leading distributor of installation products, tools and supplies, with its one-stop-shop concept offering a broad scope across geographies, product categories, sales channels and delivery methods. CVC is fully supportive of the Company’s skilled and experienced management team that has grown the company both organically and through acquisitions. CVC works with CVC Funds’ portfolio companies over the long term in true partnership and this acquisition represents an opportunity to continue working together with the existing management team to create sustainable value for all stakeholders. Quimper appreciates the dedication and skills of Ahlsell’s management and employees and is committed to continue to support Ahlsell in the future and intends to continue the good cooperation with the unions of Ahlsell. Quimper's plans for the future business and general strategy do not currently include any material changes with regard to Ahlsell’s operational sites, its management and employees, including their terms of employment. Ahlsell has a strong track record of delivering financial and operational performance, both under private and public ownership. However, as Ahlsell is now possibly moving into a different phase of its business and economic cycle with a softer outlook for construction and industrial activity, and uncertainty in the overall domestic and global markets, Quimper is taking responsibility and offers to take Ahlsell private at a full and fair valuation for Ahlsell's shareholders. The Offer Consideration The shareholders of Ahlsell are offered SEK 55.00 in cash per share in Ahlsell. Quimper will not increase the price in the Offer. By this statement Quimper cannot, in accordance with the Nasdaq Stockholm’s rules regarding takeover bids on the stock market (the “Takeover Rules”), increase the price in the Offer. SEK 55.00 per share is thus the highest price that will be offered by Quimper in the Offer. Certain employees hold warrants and call options in Ahlsell issued within incentive programs. Such financial instruments are not included in the Offer. However, Quimper will procure that the owners of such warrants and call options in Ahlsell will receive reasonable treatment. Should Ahlsell, prior to the settlement of the Offer, distribute dividends or in any other way distribute or transfer value to its shareholders, the consideration in the Offer will be adjusted accordingly. No commission will be charged in respect of the settlement of the Ahlsell shares tendered to Quimper under the Offer. Premiums The price of the Offer represents a premium of[5]: ·  32.5 percent compared to the closing price on 10 December 2018 (the last day of trading prior to the announcement of the Offer), of SEK 41.50 for the shares; ·  24.8 percent compared to the volume-weighted average trading price over the 10 trading days ended on 10 December 2018 (the last day of trading prior to the announcement of the Offer), of SEK 44.06 for the shares; and ·  23.9 percent compared to the price in the initial public offering of Ahlsell including paid out dividends since the listing (offer price of SEK 55.00 plus dividends since the listing of SEK 2.00 as compared to the listing price of SEK 46.00). Total value of the Offer The total value of the Offer, based on the 326,723,864 shares in Ahlsell not directly or indirectly owned by Quimper or closely related parties, amounts to approximately SEK 17,970 million. The Offer values Ahlsell, based on all 436,302,187 outstanding shares in Ahlsell, to SEK 23,997 million. Conditions for completion of the Offer The completion of the Offer is conditional upon: 1. the Offer being accepted to such extent that Quimper becomes the owner of shares representing more than 90 percent of the total number of outstanding shares in Ahlsell[6]; 2. no other party announcing an offer to acquire shares in Ahlsell on terms that are more favorable to the shareholders of Ahlsell than the Offer; 3. with respect to the Offer and completion of the acquisition of Ahlsell, all necessary clearances, approvals, decisions and other actions from authorities or similar, including approvals from competition authorities, being obtained, in each case on terms which, in Quimper’s opinion, are acceptable; 4. neither the Offer nor the acquisition of Ahlsell being rendered wholly or partially impossible or significantly impeded as a result of legislation or other regulation, any decision of court or public authority, or any similar circumstance, which is actual or can reasonably be anticipated, and which Quimper could not reasonably have foreseen at the time of announcement of the Offer; 5. no circumstances, which Quimper did not have knowledge of at the time of announcement of the Offer, having occurred that have or can be expected to have a material adverse effect upon Ahlsell’s sales, profit, liquidity, solidity, equity or assets; 6. no information made public by Ahlsell being materially inaccurate, incomplete or misleading, and Ahlsell having made public all information which should have been made public by it; and 7. Ahlsell not taking any measures that are likely to impair the prerequisites for making or completing the Offer. Quimper reserves the right to withdraw the Offer in the event that it is clear that any of the above conditions are not satisfied or cannot be satisfied. However, with regard to conditions 2 – 7 above, the Offer may only be withdrawn provided that the non-satisfaction of such condition is of material importance to Quimper’s acquisition of Ahlsell or if otherwise approved by the Swedish Securities Council (Sw. Aktiemarknadsnämnden). Quimper reserves the right to waive, in whole or in part, one or several of conditions 1 – 7 above, including, with respect to condition 1 above, to complete the Offer at a lower level of acceptance.

We're very happy to offer our current members the possibility to keep up with the Dutch startups and at the same time create opportunities for both Dutch entrepreneurs and investors. The Dutch startup scene has been described as highly prominent, which we've seen by the amount applications we've historically received from cool Dutch startups, so we're ecstatic that we can now serve them locally.” states Kristin Svärd, Head of International Growth, FundedByMe “As off 2018 all companies will need a clear international strategy, and for crowdfunding the international aspect is extra interesting. To open up a new office in the Netherlands is strategically perfect for us, as the market regarding equity crowdfunding is very interesting and as many of our members are from that region. This step is definitely along the lines with our growth strategy and we have high expectations on both our partner and on the market itself," claims Daniel Daboczy, CEO and co-founder, FundedByMe Earlier this year FundedByMe released that they had established a new partnership with Poland. Now they are choosing to take the next step by partnering with the Netherlands to continue their ambitions to become the leading crowdfunding platform on the European crowdfunding market.

Alligator Bioscience starts clinical phase I study with ATOR-1015

Lund, Sweden, December 11, 2018 – Alligator Bioscience AB (Nasdaq Stockholm: ATORX) today announces that regulatory approvals have been obtained for the first clinical study of ATOR-1015 and patient recruitment can now be initiated. ATOR-1015 is a wholly-owned drug candidate developed for tumor-directed immunotherapy. The phase I study is a first-in-human dose-escalation study in up to 53 patients with advanced solid tumor disease at five different clinics across Sweden and Denmark. The primary aim of the study will be to investigate the safety and tolerability of the drug and to identify the recommended dose for subsequent Phase II studies. “The start of clinical phase I study with ATOR-1015 represents a significant milestone for Alligator. We are first in the world with a new concept, a tumor-localizing bispecific CTLA-4 antibody. While the target is clinically validated, the clinical use of CTLA-4 blocking agents is restricted by severe toxicity. ATOR-1015 may provide a solution through its potential for selective activation of the immune system in the tumor area but not elsewhere in the body. The drug’s preclinical results are very promising, clearly supporting this concept”, said Per Norlén, CEO of Alligator Bioscience. As previously communicated, Alligator has appointed Theradex Oncology, a global contract research organization with extensive expertise in oncology clinical development, to conduct the phase I study.

Enersize Appoints New CEO

The decision to appoint the new CEO and global sales and marketing manager is made to drive Enersize to positive cash flow in the coming year. The Board's assessment is that the company, with Anders as CEO and Daniel as globally responsible for sales and marketing, will be given the leadership with the best ability to capitalize on the combination of the company's technology solutions and Daniel’s market knowledge and sales network. Anders Sjögren has previously held positions in Enersize as Head of Research and CTO, and in that role has managed Enersize's operations in Lund, making great progress in the development of the cloud platform and analysis software. Anders has also been part of the management team and has a comprehensive insight into Enersize's business as well as a good understanding of Enersize customer needs. Anders has a PhD in Physics and has experience at senior management level in listed companies. He has also served as interim CFO of Anoto AB and been responsible for Anoto AB's restructuring work and outsourcing of Swedish operations. Daniel Winkler was the former CEO and founder of LEAQS / LMS and has many years of experience in sales towards Enersize’s customer category, as well as having a huge network in the industry and extensive knowledge of compressed air systems and customer needs. Daniel has a strong focus on sales and a thorough understanding of sales methodology, sales organization and marketing. The Enersize Board sees great benefits from having recruited a new CEO internally who is already familiar with the company, and who has a good ability to implement rapid changes as well as the right background to drive the board's long-term vision for the company. The Board's assessment is that Anders Sjögren is the right person to realize the strategy decided by the Board, taking full advantage of the synergy effects of recently acquired LEAQS for implementing Europe expansion and pushing Enersize from a project company to become a world-leading provider of compressed air optimization SaaS. Former CEO Sami Mykkänen will continue to support the new management team from his board position, focused on the development of the international business network in China. There is no severance pay for Sami Mykkänen in connection with his resignation as CEO. In addition to market pay, the Board will issue an option-based incentive program to Anders Sjögren. The warrants to be issued to Anders will be issued within the space of the previously decided amount of employee warrants. The number of warrants and conditions for these will be announced in connection with the issuance. Christian Merheim, Chairman of the Board Enersize, comments: "I'm very pleased to announce Anders Sjögren as new CEO of Enersize. Through Anders's previous role in Enersize, I have seen his excellent ability to analyze and excecute as well as a well-developed leadership with a deep technical and business understanding. With Anders as new CEO, the acquisition of LEAQS and recent capitalization from Formue Nord, Enersize has the prerequisites for long-term success as well as short term increase in shareholder value. With Anders at the helm, we begin a new exciting trip for Enersize, and I thank Sami for his time as CEO, which included many exciting steps in the company's development, not least having driven it from a start-up to a listed company." Anders Sjögren, newly appointed CEO, comments: "In my role at Enersize I have had the opportunity to see the business from the inside for some time and see what works and what is lacking. Due to my close cooperation with the company's board of directors and the consensus we share about the company's future, I have been able to participate in the strategic work of setting guidelines and goals. I am very grateful that I have just been chosen to bring the company to a new direction that I really believe in. I look with great excitement on the future and what we can do together with the strong team that the company has." Sami Mykkänen, outgoing CEO, board member comments: "As the company evolved and we got to know the customers and the market better, it is clear that Enersize’s innovative software and the opportunities it provides through license and subscription sales is the area where there is the best future potential. With the acquisition of LEAQS, we have become even more of a software company and therefore we have jointly decided to adapt the company's management to make best use of this. With this I will now leave and hand over my role as CEO to Anders but will remain on the board and continue to contribute to the work on the Chinese projects to move these towards positive cash flow."

Investigation concerning surgeries resumed after review

On 12 October 2017, the investigation was discontinued concerning the surgeon who was formerly employed at Karolinska University Hospital. One injured party and the relatives of two other injured parties who passed away requested a review. The review has been carried out by the Prosecution Development Centre of the Swedish Prosecution Authority. – We have chosen to review the entire case, i.e. all three patients who had their tracheas replaced. The investigation will now be resumed concerning two of the patients; a woman from Turkey and a man from Iceland. The medical evidence concerning the third patient, a man from the US, is not sufficient and therefore this investigation will not be reopened, said Director of Public Prosecution Mikael Björk. To resume the investigation is a prerequisite for initiating a prosecution, should the prosecutor decide to do so in the future. It is still too early to form an opinion as to which decision the prosecutor will make. – I have made a different judicial assessment to the former prosecutor. This does not mean that the prosecutor made an incorrect assessment as the legal position is unclear. There are only a few directive judgements from the Supreme Court. However, in my opinion there exist the pre-conditions to resume the parts of the investigation that concern the Icelandic man and the Turkish woman, said Mikael Björk. Director of Public Prosecution Mikael Björk will be responsible for the resumed investigation. Decisions (in Swedish) Beslut åm-2017-6793  (pdf) Beslut åm-2017-6793.2  (pdf)

BerGenBio Presents Key Results from PhII Programme with Selective AXL Inhibitor Bemcentinib at DNB’s 9th Annual Nordic Healthcare Conference

Bergen, Norway, 12 Dec 2018 – BerGenBio ASA (OSE:BGBIO), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on developing a pipeline of first-in-class AXL kinase inhibitors to treat multiple cancer indications, announces that the Company will be presenting key results from its Phase II clinical programme with selective AXL inhibitor bemcentinib at the DNB's 9th Annual Nordic Healthcare Conference in Oslo, Norway, today at 10:15-10:40 CET. The slides are available for download at the Company’s website: www.bergenbio.com/investors/presentations/ Richard Godfrey, Chief Executive Officer of BerGenBio, commented: “We have made significant progress during 2018 establishing clinical proof of concept for the remarkable utility of bemcentinib in cancers with high unmet clinical need and large market potential. We have shown that our once-a-day, oral selective AXL inhibitor is well tolerated as a monotherapy and in combination with immune-, targeted and chemotherapies. What is more, consistently we have seen that efficacy scales with AXL biomarker expression leading to superior response rates in AXL biomarker positive relapsed/refractory AML and MDS as a monotherapy as well as non-small cell lung cancer where we are combining with the immunotherapy blockbuster Keytruda. We have met all our operational milestones this year and are looking forward to starting a randomised phase II programme towards the end of H1 2019 based on key results obtained this year.” About BerGenBio ASA  BerGenBio ASA is a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on developing a pipeline of first-in-class AXL kinase inhibitors to treat multiple cancer indications. The Company is a world leader in understanding the essential role of AXL kinase in mediating cancer spread, immune evasion and drug resistance in multiple aggressive solid and haematological cancers.BerGenBio’s lead product, bemcentinib, is a selective, potent and orally bio-available small molecule AXL inhibitor in four Company sponsored Phase II clinical trials in major cancer indications, with read-outs anticipated in the second half of 2018.  AXL kinase is cell membrane receptor and an essential mediator of the biological mechanisms that drive aggressive and life-threatening diseases. In cancer, AXL drives tumour survival, treatment resistance and spread, as well as suppressing the body’s immune response to tumours. AXL expression has been established as a negative prognostic factor in many cancers. AXL inhibitors, therefore, have potential value at the centre of cancer combination therapy, addressing significant unmet medical needs and multiple high-value market opportunities.

So far, we’ve only taken small steps into the future. Most of the zero-touch future is yet to be developed – and how we create that future is still in our hands.” The insights in the report are based on Ericsson ConsumerLab’s global research activities over more than 23 years, and primarily draw on data from an online survey conducted during October 2018 of advanced internet users in 10 influential cities across the world.

Neste strengthens its global leading position in renewable products with a major investment in Singapore

Neste Corporation Stock Exchange Release 12 December 2018 at 8 am. (EET) Neste Corporation has made the final investment decision on additional renewable products production capacity in Singapore. The decision is based on a growing global market demand for low-carbon solutions in transport and cities, aviation, polymers and chemicals. The investment worth approximately EUR 1.4 billion will extend Neste’s renewable product overall capacity in Singapore by up to 1.3 million tons per annum, bringing the total renewable product capacity close to 4.5 million tons annually in 2022. The company’s target is to start up the new production line during the first half of 2022. “Neste is in the business of helping transport and cities, aviation, polymers and chemicals customers make their business more sustainable and will continue to lead the way for renewable products. We are already a global leader in renewable products produced from waste and residues. This investment marks an important step in the execution of our profitable growth strategy globally,” says Peter Vanacker, President and CEO of Neste. As a result of the investment, Neste will have more options to choose between different product solutions in the whole production system. In addition to producing renewable diesel, all Neste’s renewable product refineries are able to produce renewable aviation fuel and raw materials for various polymers and chemicals materials. The investment in Singapore will include additional logistics capabilities and enhanced raw material pretreatment for the use of increasingly low-quality waste and residue raw materials also for the existing refinery. “The investment will strengthen our competitive advantages which are based on the global optimization of our production and waste and residue raw material usage. With our proprietary NEXBTL technology, renewable products can be refined flexibly from a wide variety of lower quality waste and residues while the end-products retain their high quality. We will leverage the experience gained at our existing sites in Singapore, Rotterdam, the Netherlands and Porvoo, Finland, and thanks to our continuous process and technology development, the new production line will be the best in class worldwide,” Vanacker continues. Neste currently has a renewable products production capacity of 2.7 million tons annually. Of this total, over one million is produced in Singapore, the same amount in Rotterdam in the Netherlands and the rest in Porvoo, Finland. Before the new production line in Singapore, we will continue eliminating bottlenecks in our existing production, bringing the existing capacity to 3 million tons by 2020.

Alfa Laval has signed an agreement to divest the major part of its “Greenhouse” activity, to the LU-VE Group

The product group commercial/industrial air heat exchangers represent the major part of today’s Greenhouse. It was moved there in 2016, along with a few other selected product groups, to give it the best possible conditions to improve its performance. The strategy has proven to be successful and the air heat exchanger business reported revenues of more than SEK 1 billion during the last twelve months. “This business has made big improvements the last two years both in terms of growth and profitability,” says Tom Erixon, President and CEO of the Alfa Laval Group. “However, we concluded it would have even better opportunities to continue developing under the ownership of the LU-VE Group.” The President of LU-VE, Iginio Liberali, says: “Alfa Laval’s commercial/industrial air heat exchangers will fit perfectly into the strategic design of growth and qualification of the LU-VE Group. With the acquisition, the Group will be among the three largest global operators in the sector. It will reinforce our capability to offer services and components of high quality and reliability.” The agreement to divest the commercial/industrial air heat exchanger business to LU‑VE Group will affect about 400 employees, mainly based at the production sites in Italy, Finland and India, and the purpose is to transfer the employees to the LU-VE Group as per closing date of the transaction.   Alfa Laval will continue to supply air heat exchangers (such as Alfa Laval ACE, Alfa Laval Niagara and Alfa Laval OLMI) for heavy process industry applications and other types of heat exchangers (such as brazed heat exchangers) for the HVAC and refrigeration industry.   About Alfa Laval                                                                                                           Alfa Laval is a leading global provider of specialized products and engineering solutions based on its key technologies of heat transfer, separation and fluid handling.

Telia Company divests its interest in Kcell and dissolves Fintur partnership with Turkcell

“I’m glad to announce that we have entered into an agreement to divest our and Fintur’s stake in Kcell, thereby in all material aspects completing the journey of exiting Eurasia. It has been a complex process with many interests and considerations, but we are now pleased with the completion of this process. I want to extend my deepest gratitude to Kcell’s employees for all their hard work and the commitment to customers and shareholders that they have shown. As part of the closure, we have today also agreed with Turkcell on the dismantling of our jointly owned holding company Fintur, enabling Telia Company to repatriate the cash from Fintur. This marks an important milestone in Telia Company’s history,” says Johan Dennelind, President and CEO of Telia Company.  Telia Company divests its 24 percent holding in Kcell JSC (Kcell) which is listed at the London Stock Exchange and the Kazakhstan Stock Exchange, to telecom operator Kazakhtelecom JSC, a company controlled by the government of the Republic of Kazakhstan through the sovereign wealth fund Samruk-Kazyna. As part of the same transaction, Fintur also divests its 51 percent stake in Kcell to Kazakhtelecom JSC.  The agreed price for Telia Company’s and Fintur’s 75 percent in Kcell is USD 446 million, which implies an enterprise value (EV) of USD 771 million for 100 percent on a cash and debt free basis. This price corresponds to an EV/EBITDA multiple of 5.0x based on the last twelve months per September 2018.  Prior to signing the Kcell transaction, Telia Company has completed strict compliance and purchaser due diligence and is satisfied that all relevant checks and controls have been carried out with satisfactory results. Kazakhtelecom is a buyer that meets Telia Company’s requirements.  The Kcell transaction has already been approved by the anti-monopoly authority in Kazakhstan and Telia Company expects to complete the divestment in December 2018.  The Kcell transaction is expected to result in a gain of approximately SEK 1.1 billion for Telia Company’s share before reclassification of accumulated foreign exchange losses of SEK 0.9 billion to net income from discontinued operations (which will have no material effect on group equity). The transaction is on a pro forma basis estimated to decrease net debt to EBITDA by 0.1x. The final amounts are subject to changes in carrying values and foreign exchange rates. Adding the divestment of Ucell from last week and the dismantling of Fintur the net debt to EBITDA is unchanged from these transactions combined.  Telia Company has also signed an agreement to acquire Turkcell’s 41.45 percent stake in Fintur for a price based on their proportional share of the cash in Fintur. The total cash position in Fintur was approximately SEK 6.1 billion by the end of November which will be split proportionally whereby Telia Company pays 95 percent on the cash value to Turkcell for their part. In total Telia keeps approximately SEK 3.7 billion plus its proceeds from Kcell. The cash in Fintur will be distributed to Telia Company in full. Closing is expected in early 2019.  As a result of the transaction Telia Company becomes sole shareholder of Moldcell in Moldova, representing approximately 0.7 percent of service revenues and 0.6 percent of total EBITDA in Telia Company.  UBS and Sullivan & Cromwell LLP acted as Telia Company’s advisors in connection to the transactions.    About KcellKcell JSC was founded in 1998. It is the leading mobile operator in Kazakhstan and has an extensive portfolio of mobile services, primarily prepaid, to both private and business customers. Kcell is listed at London Stock Exchange and Kazakhstan Stock Exchange.  About FinturTelia Company and Turkcell have since 2002 jointly owned Fintur Holdings B.V. (Fintur) wherein parts of the parties’ interests in mobile operators in Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan, Georgia and Moldova were placed.    Analyst and media telephone conference today at 13.00 CET.  Telia Company invites you to a conference call with Telia Company’s President and CEO Johan Dennelind, CFO Christian Luiga, and Group General Counsel Jonas Bengtsson.  Presentation material will be available ahead of the conference call at www.teliacompany.com   Dial-in number: +44 (0) 2071 928000Access code: 2479278  You can also listen to the conference call afterwards until December 19, 2018.     Replay number: +44 (0) 3333009785Access code:  2479278   This information is information that Telia Company AB is obliged to make public pursuant to the EU Market Abuse Regulation.

CYBER1 ANNOUNCES SETUP OF A GLOBAL ADVISORY BOARD WITH THE APPOINTMENT OF JOSEPH J. GRANO JR. AS CHAIRMAN

in the securities and financial services industries. He is the former Chairman of UBS Financial Services Inc., the former President, CEO and Chairman of UBS PaineWebber and has also previously served in various senior management positions with Merrill Lynch. During the period from March 2002 to August 2005, Mr Grano served as the Chairman of the Homeland Security Advisory Council following his appointment by President George W. Bush: in this role, he was ultimately responsible for providing the Secretary of Homeland Security with real-time, real-world, sensing and independent advice in order to better facilitate decision-making across the spectrum of homeland security operations. The CYBER1 board of directors has mandated Mr Grano to initiate the GAB, which will help CYBER1 develop and implement its mission statement and strategy on a global basis. It is envisaged that the GAB will comprise representatives from the following four distinct geographical regions:  1. Europe  2. Middle East/Africa  3. Latin America  4. The United States  The primary mandate of the GAB will be to facilitate the successful penetration of the CYBER1 value proposition within each geographical region and concomitant to this, to prioritise cross selling opportunities within the various CYBER1 Group companies, with the resultant effect of positioning CYBER1 as a “best in class” global firm, and trusted provider of cyber security products and services to governments, municipalities, corporations and institutions.    Commenting on his appointment to the advisory board, Mr Grano stated: “I am delighted to be joining the CYBER1 team, in supporting the set up of their Global Advisory Board. Ever since my Special Forces training and from the privilege of chairing the Homeland Security Advisory Board post 9/11, I have been dedicated to the security of our citizens, government and private sector. My experience has taught me that to win this cyber war we need to appreciate that our collective approach is not a matter of sacrificing liberty for security. Rather we need to focus on securing liberty” CYBER1 Chairman Kobus Paulsen commented: “We are honoured to have Joe join our Global Advisory Board. With his rich and varied leadership experience in the fields of security and financial services, Joe adds tremendous depth, business acumen and a wealth of insight into our target markets. As we enter a new period of global expansion of our services, we will undoubtedly benefit from Joe's expertise, network and immense credibility in both the public and private sectors".
