SUMMER SCREEN PRINTS - Film Poster Exhibition hosted by SOMERSET HOUSE & PRINT CLUB LONDON as part of the Film4 Summer Screen

31 July – 25 August 2014 Open daily 10.00 – 18.00 Additionally from 18.30 for Film4 Summer Screen ticket holders Free admission West Wing Galleries, Somerset House Back for a second year, Print Club London and Somerset House will be curating a series of screen printed film posters for the 10th anniversary season of Film4 Summer Screen at Somerset House. A series of contemporary, limited edition screen prints, inspired by the films shown in the season, will be exhibited in the West Wing Galleries at Somerset House, running from 31 July – 25 August. Open daily as well as during each evening’s film event, this will be a unique opportunity to discover some of the UK’s brightest artistic talent and purchase a screen print. Each exhibiting artist will reimagine a poster for one of the films in this season’s line- up, taking particular scenes, quotes or characters from their selected title as inspiration. The 16 artists on display include Rose Blake, Concepción Studios, Cassandra Yap, Hattie Stewart, Kate Moross, Steve Wilson, Kate Gibb and HelloVon. Each poster will be limited edition and exclusively available to buy for £45 at Somerset House as well as online at Print Club London. To celebrate Film4 Summer Screen’s 10th anniversary the public was given the opportunity to vote for their favourite film from a selection of the last 10 years. ET was chosen as the winner and celebrated artist Rose Blake was asked to illustrate this classic for the anniversary poster. Blake says: “I was given the film that was chosen in the public vote, and was so happy when I found out that E.T had been picked. I re-watched the film, and decided to focus on the scene where E.T leaves to go home. I suppose in my print you are watching the scene from the viewpoint of Elliot’s mother in the film. My print is about saying goodbye to people - I felt the phrase ‘I’ll be right here’ was a really poignant way of doing so.” Further Contributing Artists and Film Posters Claudia Borfiga – Sense and Sensibility Lucille Clerc – The Great Beauty Concepción Studios – The Royal Tenenbaums Kate Gibb – Annie Hall HelloVon – Big Trouble in Little China MOL – The 400 Blows Kate Moross – Hairspray Mat Pringle – Rosemary’s Baby Rose Stallard – Mad Max 2 Hattie Stewart – Spring Breakers Holly Wales – Two Days, One Night Casper Williamson – Ghostbusters Joe Wilson – A Fistful of Dollars Steve Wilson – What We Do in the Shadows Cassandra Yap – Gentlemen prefer Blondes Film4 Summer Screen Celebrating 10 years of cinema under the stars, Film4 Summer Screen at Somerset House is back for a bumper birthday season from 7 – 20 August.

This hand-operated process uses a mesh-based stencil to apply ink onto any surface such as fabric, paper, stickers, vinyl or wood. The number of prints in an edition is usually limited, signed by hand by the artist and signified by a unique number - giving each print an air of exclusivity and originality.

SCA and Vinda to integrate hygiene business in China

As part of the transaction, SCA and Vinda have signed an agreement regarding the exclusive license to market and sell the SCA brands; TENA, (incontinence products) Tork (Away from Home tissue), Tempo (consumer tissue), Libero (baby diapers), and Libresse (feminine care) in China (Mainland China,Hong Kong and Macau). With this agreement, Vinda will hold the rights to these product brands in these Chinese markets. Vinda will acquire SCA’s Dr P and Sealer brands in China. “With its immense number of inhabitants, ageing population and low penetration of hygiene products, China is an attractive and important market with significant potential for future growth. This new cooperation and transaction will generate mutual benefits for both SCA and Vinda particularly in distribution, sales, innovation and R&D. Vinda will get access to a broader product portfolio and SCA’s brands will have the potential to reach a broader base of consumers and customers via the extensive and robust distribution network of Vinda in China,” says Jan Johansson, President and CEO of SCA. SCA has been a shareholder in Vinda since 2007, became its majority shareholder in late 2013, and has consolidated Vinda financials since the first quarter of 2014. SCA’s hygiene business in China (Mainland China, Hong Kong and Macau) had net sales of approximately SEK 600m in 2013. The purchase consideration amounts to HKD 1,144m (approx. SEK 1,000m) on a debt-free basis. The agreement is subject to approval by the independent shareholders of Vinda. Vinda is listed on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange. NB: This information is such that SCA must disclose in accordance with the Securities Markets Act and/or the Financial Instruments Trading Act.

Haldex Interim report, January - June 2014

April - June Net sales amounted to SEK 1,124 (1,067) m, equivalent to a growth of 5% compared with the same period of the previous year. After currency adjustments, net sales increased by 4%. Operating income excluding one-off items amounted to SEK 110 (76) m, corresponding to an operating margin of 9.7 (7.1)%. Including one-off items, operating income was SEK 103 (-44) m and the operating margin was 9.2 (-4.1)%. Net income after tax increased to SEK 64 (-48) m and earnings per share increased to SEK 1.44 (-1.09). Net income was impacted by one-off items in the amount of SEK 7 (120) m in Q2. Cash flow from operating activities increased to SEK 116 (88) m. There was a negative impact on cash flow in the amount of SEK 7 (23) m in the quarter due to the ongoing restructuring programs. In Q2, Haldex entered the final phase of negotiations with the German trade unions concerning Haldex’ operations in Heidelberg. However, the negotiations have not been finalized as of the publication of this report. Haldex estimates that the forecasted total savings for the ongoing restructuring program will be adjusted down slightly, which will be announced when the parties have reached a final agreement.

The operating margin continued to improve compared to both Q1 this year and the first half of the previous year. With an operating margin close to 9%, we exceeded our long-term target of 7% and we will therefore update our financial targets in the beginning of October in conjunction with our capital market day. Net sales increased by 7%, which is in part due to the successes we have had with our investment in disc brakes. In total, we have won contracts with several European trailer manufacturers with an estimated value of SEK 650 m from 2014 to 2017, with the majority of this volume coming in the latter part of that period. We are pleased that the German negotiations are coming close to a close so that we can implement the final phase of our restructuring program. Our operations in Heidelberg will be gradually restructured through the end of 2015. Our remaining operations are based on the core expertise we have involving air suspension products, which will result in an effective and focused unit that will contribute positively to Haldex in the coming years.” Full interim report The full interim report is available at http://www.haldex.com/financialreports or at http://news.cision.com/haldex Press and analyst meeting Media and analysts are invited to a telephone conference at which the report will be presented with comments by Bo Annvik, President and CEO, and Andreas Ekberg, CFO.

SWECO AB (publ) Interim report January-June 2014

APRIL – JUNE 2014 · Net sales: SEK 2,337.3 million (2,001.7) · Operating profit: SEK 155.6 million (190.6); operating margin: 6.7 per cent (9.5) · EBITA: SEK 167.8 million (200.5); EBITA margin: 7.2 per cent (10.0) · Integration costs for Vectura: SEK 2.8 million · Profit after tax: 108.6 million (136.2); earnings per share: SEK 1.19 SEK (1.48) JANUARY – JUNE 2014 · Net sales: SEK 4,659.0 million (3,919.3) · Operating profit: SEK 367.2 million (324.6); operating margin: 7.9 per cent (8.3) · EBITA: SEK 393.2 million (344.6); EBITA margin: 8.4 per cent (8.8) · Integration costs for Vectura: SEK 11.3 million · Profit after tax: 252.5 million (238.4); earnings per share: SEK 2.76 SEK (2.59) · Net debt: SEK 1,522.8 million (647.9) Comments from President and CEO Tomas Carlsson: - Sales increased 17 per cent during the second quarter, due primarily to the acquisition of Vectura. Operating profit was down due to the fewer number of available working hours. Vectura and improved utilisation in Finland contributed positively to profit. In view of the negative calendar effects, the earnings trend is stable. - During the second quarter, the market in general is characterised by cautious optimism and recovery compared to the weak start to the year. Recovery is slow, however, and the road to a robust growth in demand has pitfalls in terms of the general economic development. During the quarter the Swedish market is somewhat improved, while the Norwegian market is stable. The markets in Finland and Central Europe remain challenging. - It has now been one year since Vectura was acquired, and it is time to summarize the transaction. Vectura is already exceeding our financial expectations, and Sweco is the Nordic leader in infrastructure. We are thus uniquely positioned to benefit from future investments in roads and railways. The integration is completed and we now focus on continued profitable growth.

Saab's results January-June 2014

Statement by the President and CEO Håkan Buskhe:The security and defence market remains challenging and competition is fierce. During the first half-year of 2014, Saab has developed and strengthened its product portfolio. In order to offer products and solutions that our customers want, the investments in research and development as well as cost efficient solutions are key. The business area Electronic Defence Systems launched unique solutions during the period, that give the established Giraffe AMB and Arthur systems leading functionality and design. The interest for Gripen remains strong internationally. The development of Gripen E progress according to time plan and budget and will be delivered to Sweden, starting 2018. The negotiations with Brazil regarding Gripen NG continue and both parties’ ambition is to reach an agreement in 2014. In July, a Memorandum of Understanding was signed with the Brazilian aircraft producer Embraer regarding joint development and production of Gripen for Brazil. During the first half-year, Saab strengthened its position as one of the world’s leading companies in military training systems and received orders from both the Finnish armed forces and the UK Ministry of Defence. Order bookings in the business area Dynamics were negatively affected by the continued challenging market situation, and by delays in customers’ procurement decisions. We see no change in the market situation short-term, but continue to develop our offer to safeguard the business area’s long-term potential. In June, an agreement was reached to acquire ThyssenKrupp Marine Systems AB (former Kockums). This enables the expansion of the naval offer, as announced earlier this year, and makes Saab one of few companies in the world with the ability to develop, produce and deliver comprehensive defence solutions for air, land and sea. The closing of the transaction is planned for July 2014. The Swedish Defence Materiel Administration (FMV) has during the first half-year placed orders for construction and production plans for the next generation submarines and to conduct a mid-life update of two Gotland-class submarines. Also, a Letter of Intent was signed with FMV regarding the Swedish armed forces’ underwater capability, comprising potential orders of over SEK 11 billion. Saab’s order bookings decreased in the period, compared to the same period 2013 where we received development orders amounting to SEK 13.2 billion attributable to Gripen E. Sales amounted to MSEK 10,972 (11,748), a decrease of 7 per cent, mainly due to lower sales within Dynamics. The reported operating income amounted to MSEK 643 (545) with an operating margin of 5.9 percent (4.6). The operating income for the same period 2013 was negatively impacted by a non-recurring item of MSEK 231 attributable to a lost legal dispute. The operating income adjusted for non-recurring items amounted to MSEK 643 (776) and the operating margin was 5.9 per cent (6.6). The business area Electronic Defence Systems reported a positive operating income, while continuing to invest in development of new radar and sensor technology. The efficiency measures announced in 2013 progress according to plan and in total, the number of FTE’s and external consultants has been reduced by approx. 850 since the beginning of 2013. The operational cash flow was negative, mainly due to timing differences in deliveries and milestone payments. During the second half-year 2014 we have more planned milestone deliveries and we therefore estimate that the operational cash flow will be positive. Earnings per share after dilution amounted to SEK 3.80 (2.48). Outlook statement 2014: · In 2014, we estimate that sales will be in line with 2013. · The operating margin in 2014, excluding material non-recurring items, is expected to be somewhat higher than the operating margin in 2013, excluding material non-recurring items. Excluding material non-recurring items, the operating margin was 6.6 per cent in 2013.

TOMRA Q2: Strong order intake in Sorting Solutions in a quarter with flat revenues

Revenues in the second quarter 2014 amounted to 1,187 MNOK compared to 1,177 MNOK in second quarter last year. Revenues in TOMRA Collection increased by 4% (down 1% currency adjusted), while revenues in TOMRA Sorting were down 4% (down 8% currency adjusted). Gross margin was 43% in the quarter, up from 42% in the corresponding period last year, explained by improved margins in TOMRA Sorting. Operating expenses increased from 323 MNOK in second quarter 2013 to 348 MNOK in second quarter 2014, including one-time integration costs of 13 MNOK in TOMRA Sorting. Adjusted for currency (stronger EUR and USD vs NOK) and one-time costs, operating expenses increased by 2%. EBITA was 156 MNOK in second quarter 2014 versus 172 MNOK in the second quarter 2013. Cash flow from operations in second quarter 2014 equaled 136 MNOK, up from 120 MNOK in second quarter 2013. Collection Solutions: T-9 roll out slightly ahead of schedule and new depot prototype machine out for testing Revenues in the business area equaled 726 MNOK in the second quarter, up from 699 MNOK in second quarter last year. After adjustment for currency changes, revenues were down 1%. Compared to same period last year gross margin was unchanged at 42%. Operating expenses were up 2%, currency adjusted. EBITA was MNOK 129, up from 127 MNOK, due to the positive currency impact. Since the new RVM machine T-9 the new RVM machine was launched in September last year it has received a very good reception in the market place. The ambition is to place 1,000 machines during 2014 and so far 487 machines has left production. “It is very encouraging to see the good reception the T-9 is getting from the target client group high volume stores and high-end retail”, says Stefan Ranstrand, TOMRA President and CEO. On top of the new product launch TOMRA is progressing as planned with the development of the new depot machine. The depot machine will serve the very high volume bulk market where TOMRA is not present today. One machine is out for testing in Norway, and several more test machines will be placed in the US market during 2014. The new machine is based on existing modules from the TOMRA portfolio and in-house R&D. Sorting Solutions: Positive order intake development in all three business segments Revenues in the quarter decreased by 4% compared to same quarter in 2013. Adjusted for currency effects, revenues were down 8%. Gross margin increased from 43% in second quarter 2013 to 44% in second quarter 2014, with the negative impact of a stronger EUR vs USD being offset by better product and market mix. Operating expenses increased in the same period from 153 MNOK to 168 MNOK, negatively influenced by integration costs of 13 MNOK in second quarter 2014 (versus 8 MNOK in second quarter 2013). Adjusted for integration cost and currency, operating expenses were up 1%. EBITA decreased from 51 MNOK in second quarter 2014 to 34 MNOK in second quarter 2014. As a consequence of higher order intake and somewhat fewer orders taken to P/L currently, the order backlog at the end of second quarter 2014 is at an all-time high at 615 MNOK compared to 574 MNOK at the end of first quarter 2014. “After a somewhat longer period where we have experienced a more challenging order intake situation, we have now seen three consecutive good quarters with a satisfactory order intake. Specifically for this quarter, we are pleased to see an increase of about 20% in order intake compared to same period last year”, comments Ranstrand.

Electrolux President and CEO Keith McLoughlin’s comments on the results for the second quarter of 2014

The improvement in our European operations continued in the second quarter and operating income increased significantly over last year. At the same time, the development in North America continues to show a solid trend. We also managed to show good performance in Latin America, in weakened market conditions. In total, the Group’s operating income increased to SEK 1,167 million with a strong cash flow of SEK 3.3bn. A positive impact from the ongoing cost-reduction program in Europe, combined with an improved product mix in such areas as built-in kitchen products, led to a significant improvement in our operating income in EMEA. Market development in Europe continued to show a dispersed pattern, with growth increasing in the Iberian countries and in the UK in the second quarter, while there was a weakening in France and the Nordic countries. We reconfirm our view that European market demand will increase by 1-3% in 2014. As previously communicated, we have concluded a review of our manufacturing operations in Italy. In May, we reached an agreement with the Italian trade unions and authorities, which entails significant cost reductions. The agreement will contribute to our efforts to restore long-term profitability for Major Appliances EMEA. As expected, the mix continued to improve in our North American operations. We have a strong focus on growing in premium segments, such as cooking products and multi-door refrigeration. Volumes of core appliances continued to increase. However, we saw deterioration in our overall sales volumes, mainly as a result of lower sales within room air-conditioning. Sales volumes in the quarter were also negatively affected by a fire at one of our suppliers of components within the refrigeration and laundry segments. The US appliance market continues to recover, driven by both replacement demand and housing, with a total expected growth of 4% in 2014. Our sales volumes in Latin America began to slow already in the second half of 2013.  As the macro-economic environment deteriorated further during the spring, we had a significant decline in sales volumes during the second quarter. The slowdown was further fueled by a temporary negative impact on sales related to the FIFA World Cup. In order to mitigate the weakened market, we have taken actions to adapt and reduce costs. We were also able to increase prices to compensate for currency headwinds and inflation. Although we remain confident that Latin America will continue to grow in the medium to longer term, visibility in the near term is low. The Group’s overall profitability shows a recovery both in the second quarter, and in the first half of the year compared with the same period in 2013. We will continue to launch new, innovative products in parallel with optimizing global production with a strong focus on cost efficiency. This will enable us to continue to generate a solid cash flow and shareholder value. Stockholm, July 18, 2014 Keith McLoughlinPresident and CEO

President and CEO Bengt Baron comments on the results for the second quarter of 2014

Cloetta has continued to grow and showed growth for the fourth consecutive quarter. At the same time, both operating profit (EBIT) and underlying operating profit improved. This improvement took place despite the fact that EBIT for the quarter was impacted by negative currency effects. The changes in exchange rates that arose during the first quarter will be offset through price increases that were implemented as of 1 July 2014. Operating profit improved significantly to SEK 85m (54), mainly because our restructuring costs are coming to an end, entirely according to plan. As a result, our underlying EBIT is increasingly converging with the operating profit. Underlying EBIT improved somewhat, despite the negative currency impact, to SEK 110m (109). The underlying EBIT margin for the quarter was 9.4 per cent (9.6). Profit after tax increased to SEK 9m (–44). Cash flow from operating activities strengthened to SEK 44m (–23). The confectionery marketThe market for confectionery has predominantly been flat to slightly negative in our markets, except Sweden where the market was positive. In Finland the market continued to be weak and in the Netherlands the market declined after a positive first quarter. The Italian market continued to decline during the second quarter. Thus, the Italian market continues to be unstable. Cloetta showing continued growthOur efforts to drive growth, both organic and through acquisitions, are delivering results. For the fourth consecutive quarter, we achieved organic growth in spite of the negative sales development in Italy and reduced sales of contract manufacturing. In addition, the acquisitions of Nutisal and The Jelly Bean Factory are contributing further to our growth momentum. In total, sales were up by 9.5 per cent during the quarter, of which 2.2 per cent was organic growth and 3.7 per cent consisted of currency effects. Sales increased in all markets, aside from Italy. Sales growth was strong in most markets, driven by both new product launches and a sustained focus on existing products. Furthermore, Cloetta’s market shares grew in the majority of markets. Sales of nuts under the Nutisal brand showed positive development, but a continued sharp decrease in contract manufacturing compared to last year meant that total sales of nuts were down. We will continue to focus on driving branded sales over contract manufacturing. Restructuring programme nearly completedThe factories that have taken over production from the closed factory in Gävle are now producing the same volume as the Gävle factory before its closure. This milestone means that the factory restructuring process, that was initiated in 2012, can be considered essentially completed. Production of the chocolate product Tupla in Ljungsbro has started and production is expected to be fully insourced during the third quarter. Acquisition of The Jelly Bean Factory contributes to profitable growthIn May, Cloetta acquired the Irish company Aran Candy Ltd. and its brand The Jelly Bean Factory. The acquisition is yet another step in the strategy to expand our offering within Munchy Moments. This will significantly strengthen Cloetta’s position in the UK and the premium brand can be rolled out in our current core markets over time. The Jelly Bean Factory will contribute to continued profitable growth for Cloetta. Growth focus paying offWe are executing in line with the laid out strategy. The factory restructurings are virtually completed, organic sales are growing, and we have been able to make complementary acquisitions to further boost the growth rate. The new pick-and-mix concept that we will start to deliver to Coop Sweden in 2015 will also contribute to accelerating growth. In terms of profitability, we have taken a step in the right direction during the quarter. Looking ahead, we will continue to focus on profitable growth and integration of the acquisitions we have made, while at the same time ensuring that the final synergies from the factory restructurings are realised. The information contained in this press release is such that Cloetta is required to disclose pursuant to the Swedish Financial Instruments Trading Act and/or the Swedish Securities Markets Act. The information was submitted for publication on 18 July 2014 at 08:00 a.m. CET.

However, the quarter had one fewer working day than the previous year as well as weaker project sales for Global Technologies. The EMEA, Americas and Entrance Systems divisions grew by a satisfactory 3%, while the emerging markets, for example in Asia, Africa and South America, continued to grow strongly. “Acquisition activity continued to run at a high level, with six new acquisitions which adda further SEK 700 M to annual sales. It was especially pleasing that we were successful in acquiring the Indian company ENOX. This is our first major step in meeting the Group’s ambition to build a market-leading position on the fast-growing Indian market. “Operating income continued to improve, by a full 13% during the quarter. As well as valuable savings and efficiency gains from the restructuring programs, the acquired companies also contributed strongly to the improvement in income. Ameristar in particular has produced very good results, but Amarr and 4Front also contributed significantly. “Continued strong growth came from our many new products. Sales of electromechanical lock solutions increased by over 10% in both Americas and EMEA. Home automation is another exciting development area where many leading companies have chosen ASSA ABLOY’s advanced digital door locks. “My judgment of the global economic trend is unchanged. The world economy is about to improve slowly. Our strategy therefore remains unchanged, to reduce our dependence on mature markets and to expand strongly in the emerging markets, which are expected to go on growing well. Another continuing priority is investments in new products, especially in the growth area of electromechanics.” FINANCIAL INFORMATIONThe Interim Report for the third quarter will be published on 23 October 2014.

Interim Report January-June 2014

Continued very strong license sales · License revenue for April-June increased with 26 percent to SEK 68.7 (54.6) million · Sales for April-June increased with 10 percent to SEK 209.3 (190.9) million · Operating profit EBITDA for April-June was SEK 10.3 (4.8) million · Earnings per share after tax for April-June were SEK 0.13 (0.03) · License revenue for January-June increased with 26 percent to SEK 122.1 (96.6) million · Sales for January-June increased with 9 percent to SEK 386.0 (353.5) million · Operating profit EBITDA for January-June was SEK 1.0 (-12.8) million · Earnings per share after tax for January-June were SEK -0.25 (-0.35) · Cash-flow from operating activities for January-June was SEK 72.5 (61.7) million · ReadSoft has during the second quarter been subject to public takeover offers from Lexmark International Technology and Hyland Software UK, respectively CEO comment: Continued very strong license growth “The second quarter has been hectic for ReadSoft. Both Lexmark International Technology and Hyland Software UK have announced public tender offers to ReadSoft's shareholders to acquire all shares in the company. Despite the great attention that the company has been exposed to in connection with the public offers, I can proudly note that we have handled the situation in a good way. We have maintained our focus and we deliver a quarter that shows strong license growth and much improved results. Our total sales grew, compared to the corresponding period last year, by 10 percent for the second quarter and by 9 percent for the first six months. The vital license sales that is so important for a software company continues to be very strong and grew by 26 percent both in the second quarter and for the first six months. Our cash flow from operating activities continues to be very strong. It is gratifying to see that our EBITDA result has more than doubled compared to the corresponding period last year. Our margins also continued to develop positively and it is evident that the actions we took to improve results and margins have had a positive effect. A gradual change in the reporting of our revenues from our support and maintenance agreements has affected the second quarter’s result negatively compared to the corresponding quarter last year. This effect means no lost revenue but only a time delay in the reporting of these revenues. The recurring revenues for the quarter increased by 9 percent compared with the same period last year and by 18 percent for the first half-year. On a rolling 12 month basis the recurring revenues increased by 13 percent and it is important for our future development that this trend is maintained. The success of XBOUND continued in the second quarter and it is clear that the strategic changes that were made have had a very positive impact on sales in our global markets. During the second quarter it is primarily our larger markets, in France, Sweden and Germany that stand out, showing the way with good growth and profitability. On the product side, we launched the latest version of PROCESS DIRECTOR (7.3) at the international SAP conference SAPPHIRE NOW/ASUG in Orlando, USA. PROCESS DIRECTOR has also been certified for SAP HANA (a new database technology), which means that the solution can be integrated with SAP applications running on SAP HANA. I am pleased how we have delivered this quarter under the circumstances in which the company currently operates. We have worked hard and improved our growth, results and margins, and we will continue these efforts in the coming quarters.

Interim Report January-June 2014

APRIL-JUNE 2014 (SECOND QUARTER) · Net sales amounted to SEK 223 million (220). · The gross margin was 46.6% (47.3). · Operating profit amounted to SEK 12 million (13). · Profit for the period amounted to SEK 8 million (9). · Earnings per share before and after dilution totalled SEK 0.35 (0.40). · Cash flow from continuing operations amounted to SEK 11 million (0). JANUARY-JUNE 2014 (SIX MONTHS) · Net sales amounted to SEK 464 million (462). · The gross margin was 45.7% (46.3). · Operating profit amounted to SEK 28 million (29). · Profit for the period was SEK 20 million (22). · Earnings per share before and after dilution totalled SEK 0.88 (0.97). · Cash flow from continuing operations amounted to SEK 18 million (34). COMMENT BY THE CEOMidsona’s sales and operating profit were consistent with the previous year, both in the second and first quarters. Several improvement measures were carried out in the second quarter as part of Midsona’s stated growth ambitions. The measures are expected to gradually produce results during the second half of the year. The second quarter was negatively affected by costs totalling approximately SEK 3 million, which are mainly attributable to these measures. The main negative impact on the Group was caused by the strengthening of the EUR against the SEK, as the majority of the Group’s purchases in EUR are made in the Swedish operations. Price increases were announced in the spring, aimed at restoring the gross margin in the Swedish operations. These price increases will achieve full impact from the beginning of the second half of the year, but since the EUR has continued to strengthen against the SEK, further price increases may need to be implemented. Furthermore, staff reductions were made, resulting in the loss of seven positions in Sweden. All costs connected to this were posted during the second quarter. In the second quarter, earnings improved in the Norwegian and Finnish business areas. Both markets displayed growth in prioritised brands and good cost control. From a Group perspective, the currency effect was neutral in Norway and positive in Finland. On the whole, the Group’s prioritised brands performed well during the first six months of the year. Friggs, our largest brand, showed double-digit growth. Dalblads continued to grow in the strategically important sports nutrition segment. New products under the Miwana brand, which was launched at the beginning of the year, were well received by consumers. Tri Tolonen, our flagship in nutritional supplements in Finland, showed growth as a result of successful launches and marketing campaigns. MyggA saw double-digit sales growth, primarily fuelled by the launch of sister product FästinG. Most of the Group’s licensed brands, for which we have sales rights for all or parts of the Nordic region, displayed growth. However, we continued to face challenges with Naturdiet in the weight control segment, which saw weak performance during the year, despite having increased our market share within the segment. We are continuing to build on our core operations in 2014. The ambition is to generate growth for our prioritised brands, to assume responsibility for selected licensed brands and, hopefully, to be able to implement one or more acquisitions. We will also focus particular attention on turning the negative trend around in Sweden. This will enable us to approach our new financial targets and to realise our vision of becoming the leader in health and well-being in the Nordic region.

For the second quarter: · Net sales amounted to 46.1 (54.0) MSEK · Net profit amounted to 0.4 (7.5)  MSEK · Order intake amounted to 10 (7) systems · 4 (7) EBM systems were delivered in the second quarter In the first 6 months we report a 21% increase in sales. Trailing twelve month sales amounts to 218.3 MSEK and earnings amount to 11.7 MSEK. The result includes non-recurring costs in the first quarter 2014 associated with the acquisition of AP&C of 6 MSEK. The order intake during the period amounts to 16 systems and the order book as of today comprises 17 systems. Acquisition of AP&C In February we acquired the powder producer AP&C from Raymor Industries in Canada. AP&C is a leading manufacturer of high quality metal powder and supplier of titanium powder to Arcam since 2006. Titanium powder is an important part of our offering and with this acquisition we have secured access to the best technology for the production of high quality metal powder for our customers. The acquisition is fully in line with our growth strategy and complements our EBM technology and product portfolio. The acquisition was completed on February 11, and is consolidated from this date. Business status We received 10 new orders during the quarter and we see a continued strong demand, particularly from the aerospace industry. The sales of our new large system, Arcam Q20, gains momentum and we have received 8 system orders.In June we launched Inconel 718® as a qualified material for use in Arcam’s EBM systems. With the introduction of the Inconel 718 our customers in the aerospace industry can now further expand the range of components that they produce in their EBM machines. The work to industrialize our technology with the major players within the aerospace and implant industries continue and we can now see good opportunities for volume orders during the year. At the same time, we see that the growing interest and knowledge in Additive Manufacturing and 3D printing creates interest within new segments. This may long term give opportunities for broadening of our product applications. Of the11 systems that were delivered during the first quarter the majority went to customers within the orthopedic implant or the aerospace industry. The cooperation with DiSanto is progressing and DiSanto ordered two new Arcam Q10 systems to meet the demand for finished EBM products. In the beginning of July we acquired our agent in the UK. We already have a support operation in the UK and with this new step we take responsibility for direct sales and support on the important UK market. Growth – organic and through acquisition In addition to the acquisition of AP&C we are in rapid organic growth. We thus continue to recruit qualified employees in order to meet the expectations from our customers. During the period we have strengthened our service office in China, the support organization in Sweden and the sales organization. Through the acquisition of AP&C and through recruitment the number of employees has increased from 55 to 113 since June 2013. We will maintain an ambitious recruitment pace in order to further develop our technology and offering and thus exploiting the present business situation. An order book of 17 systems, increasing aftermarket sales and a positive business situation lays a solid foundation for a continued growth in 2014.  Mölndal, July 18, 2014 Magnus René, CEO The above information has been made public in accordance with the Securities Market Act and/or the Financial Instruments Trading Act.

The second quarter was also characterised by continued stable growth in deposits, which now amount to SEK 55 billion.

Beijer Ref AB Q2 2014

Continued positive development for Beijer Ref Quarter 2 2014 · Net sales amounted to SEK 1,870.8M (1,711.9).  · Operating profit amounted to SEK 136.9M (83.4).  · Net profit amounted to SEK 89.3M (50.4).  · Profit per share amounted to SEK 2.03 (1.14).  · The positive trend continued for the second quarter with a growth in sales of nine per cent and an improved operating profit of 64 per cent compared with the corresponding quarter in the previous year. Excluding one-time costs in 2013, operating profit increased by 16 per cent.  · Strong increase of HVAC (comfort cooling) in Europe during the second quarter.  Comments by the CEO Continued positive trend in EuropeThe second quarter of 2014 consolidates the positive trend from the first quarter with a sales increase of 9.3 per cent. The operating profit of SEK 136.9M shows that Beijer Ref continues to strengthen its position as the largest refrigeration wholesaler in Europe. Among our regions, Central Europe enjoyed a good development during the second quarter. The United Kingdom continued to develop positively with both increased sales and increased market share. In the UK, Beijer Ref’s competitive distribution and service concept to nationally operating customers is achieving increased penetration in the market. Holland strengthened its position during the quarter and Germany continues its positive development. Southern Europe accounts for around 40 per cent of Beijer Ref’s sales and in this region both sales and results are also increasing. At this moment in time, Spain is the fastest expanding market in Southern Europe, especially with increased demand for HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning, also called comfort cooling), which drives growth. In the Eastern European market, Poland is leading the development with a significant increase in sales within both commercial & industrial refrigeration and HVAC. In the Nordic market, the trend in the Swedish market has been ‘wait-and-see’, but a strong end to the quarter is a positive signal. Denmark and Finland developed well. Sweden and Norway started the quarter slightly weaker but turned the trend during June and there is reason for cautious optimism in both countries. In the Rest of the World, Thailand’s development has stabilised after the recent disturbances and South Africa is developing according to plan. One contributing reason to the quarter’s results, albeit a minor influence, is the positive currency effects of the stronger Euro, something that must be seen as welcome after a long period with the opposite situation. Increased investment in refrigeration units produced by the companyRefrigeration units produced by the company itself is a growing and increasingly prioritised segment within Beijer Ref. As one of the largest and most modern refrigeration wholesalers in the world, an understanding of our customers’ refrigeration requirements has been built up within the Group. We are transferring this refrigeration competence to a growing portfolio with refrigeration units produced by the company. Our ambition is that Beijer Ref will increasingly be able to offer even more competitive energy-efficient solutions, both with regard to individual standard units and customer-adapted overall concepts with the most modern environment technology. Toshiba increasingly strong brand within HVACThe demand for HVAC (comfort cooling) is slightly more dependent on the economic situation than other operations within Beijer Ref and, therefore, the increased sales during the second quarter within this market segment can be seen as a sign of a continued economic upturn in Europe. Toshiba HVAC is one of the many world-leading brands within comfort cooling represented by Beijer Ref. Like Beijer Ref, the world-leading Japanese high-tech company, Toshiba, has its roots in the innovative company culture of the late 19th century. It currently consists of more than 740 companies with 210,000 employees all over the world. We are pleased to note the development for Toshiba’s products within comfort cooling was strong in all markets during the second quarter. It should also be emphasised that our sales of both Samsung and Mitsubishi enjoyed a similar development. Interesting acquisition opportunitiesWith the European recession hopefully behind us, a stronger market position, increased operating margin, and positive effects of the previous year’s cost savings, Beijer Ref has after the first two quarters of the year consolidated its operation and is well prepared for future acquisitions. It should also be mentioned that after 136 years of operation as G & L Beijer, the Group officially changed its name to Beijer Ref which, as previously announced, better reflects the consolidated operation (ref = refrigeration). At the same time, the Group’s new website was ready with more lucid and easily accessible information. Please visit our website on www.beijerref.com. Per BertlandCEO, Beijer Ref AB  Quarterly report Q2 2014 About Beijer Ref Beijer Ref is one of the three largest refrigeration wholesalers in the world and the leading company in Europe. The Group offers competitive and innovative solutions within refrigeration and air conditioning with customer-adapted products, refrigeration units developed by the company itself and efficient logistics. SalesBeijer Ref increased its sales by nine per cent to SEK 1,870.8M (1,711.9) for the second quarter of 2014. Adjusted for exchange rate fluctuations and acquisitions, the organic sales increase was four per cent. The Group also increased its sales by nine per cent to SEK 3,451.8M (3,175.7) for the period January to June which, organically, is an increase of five per cent. Beijer Ref operates in three market areas: commercial & industrial refrigeration and HVAC (comfort cooling). The Group splits its operation in the global market into five geographic segments: The Nordic countries, Central Europe (including the United Kingdom and Ireland) Eastern Europe, Southern Europe and the Rest of the World (currently consisting of southern Africa and Thailand). Behind the quarter’s sales increase lies increased demand in virtually all of these markets, where especially Central Europe (including the United Kingdom and Ireland), reported strong growth. Eastern Europe also developed well, with Poland as the largest market. Southern Europe also enjoyed a positive development. HVAC, which accounts for approximately 30 per cent of Beijer Ref’s sales, continued to increase during the second quarter. ResultsThe Group’s operating profit amounted to SEK 136.9M (83.4) for the second quarter. The result increase can be explained as a combination of implemented savings measures taken during 2013, increased market share in the United Kingdom and strengthened demand, especially for HVAC, but also for commercial & industrial refrigeration in Europe. In the previous year’s figures, the operating result is charged with one-time costs of SEK 34.2M. Excluding these one-time costs, the operating profit for the second quarter of 2013 amounted to SEK 117.6M. For the first half year, the operating profit amounted to SEK 208.2M (132.1). Excluding one-time costs, the operating profit was SEK 166.3M in the previous year. The Group’s financial income/expense amounted to SEK -8.6M (-9.6) for the second quarter. Profit before tax was SEK 128.3M (73.8). Profit after tax was SEK 89.3M (50.4). Profit per share amounted to SEK 2.03 (1.14). For the first half of the year, the Group’s financial income/expense amounted to SEK -16.1M (-15.0). Profit before tax was SEK 192.1M (117.1). Profit after tax amounted to SEK 134.9M (82.8). Profit per share was SEK 3.06 (1.83). Other financial informationConsolidated capital expenditure, including acquisitions, amounted to SEK 40.2M (34.4) for the first half of 2014. Liquid funds, including unutilised bank overdraft facilities, were SEK 373.6M (433.1) on 30 June 2014. Shareholders’ equity amounted to SEK 2,431.7M (2,247.5). The net debt was SEK 1,607.5M (1,479.3). The equity ratio amounted to 41.9 per cent (41.7). The average number of employees during the first half of the year was 2,169 (2,106). Significant events during the yearIn January, G & L Beijer acquired all the shares in Eurocool (Pty) Ltd, a leading refrigeration wholesaler in South Africa. Eurocool was founded in 1999 and holds a strong market position within G & L Beijer’s priority segments. The company reports sales of approximately SEK 65M and has 36 employees. The acquisition is estimated to provide cost synergies, increased efficiency and increased purchasing volumes through co-ordination with Beijer Ref’s existing operation in southern Africa. The acquisition is deemed to have a marginal positive effect on Beijer Ref’s profit per share in 2014. Eurocool is included in G & L Beijer’s accounts from January 2014. On 12 March, the EU Parliament voted ‘yes’ to the proposal about a new F-gas ordinance which was confirmed by the Council of Ministers in a vote on 14 April. As a result, the decision to phase out refrigerants with fluorised greenhouse gases (F-gases) has come into force which is predicted to have a positive effect on Beijer Ref through the investments in new technology which the end customers will gradually need to make and where Beijer ref is well prepared for the new business opportunities. On 14 May, the Swedish Companies Registration Office approved the Group’s change of name from G & L Beijer to Beijer Ref. A classic Swedish industrial company’s modern operation is now also reflected in the company name. Risk assessmentThe operations of the Beijer Ref Group are affected by a number of external factors, the effects of which on the Group’s operating profit can be controlled to a varying degree. The Group’s operation is dependent on the general economic trend, especially in Europe, which controls the demand for Beijer Ref’s products and services. Acquisitions are normally linked with risks such as, for example, staff defection. Other operating risks, such as agency and supplier agreements, product responsibility and delivery undertaking, technical development, warranties, dependence on individuals, etc., are continually being analysed and, when necessary, action is taken to reduce the Group’s risk exposure. In its operation, Beijer Ref is exposed to financial risks such as currency risk, interest risk and liquidity risk. The parent company’s risk picture is the same as that of the Group.

Scania Interim Report January–June 2014

Summary of the first six months of 2014 · Operating income rose by 8 percent to SEK 4,276 m. (3,971) · Net sales rose by 4 percent to SEK 43,917 m. (42,139) · Cash flow amounted to SEK 1,313 m. (405) in Vehicles and Services Comments by Martin Lundstedt, President and CEO: “Scania's earnings for the first half of 2014 amounted to SEK 4,276 m. Higher service volume was offset by a weaker market mix and negative currency rate effects. Total order bookings for trucks during the second quarter were at a high level. Order bookings in Europe improved compared to the first quarter of 2014. A somewhat improved economic situation and the replacement need are supporting demand. Scania strengthened its position in the European market with increased market share, among other things through a leading Euro 6 range, which is confirmed by tests in the trade press. Order bookings in Latin America were in line with the previous quarters. In Asia, order bookings improved sharply, related to the Middle East. Demand in Russia was adversely affected by the turbulence in the region. In buses and coaches, Scania received strategic orders for BRT-systems in Africa and Latin America. In Engines, order bookings rose, driven by Europe and Asia. Scania has initiated collaboration on engine deliveries to Atlas Copco. Scania is continuing its long-term efforts to boost market share in Services and revenue increased by 5 percent during the first half of 2014. Financial Services showed a strong performance and customer payment capacity is good. During the second quarter, Scania could welcome a clear and long-term ownership structure as the offer from Volkswagen went through. Cooperation projects with MAN and Volkswagen can now be intensified, which will provide support to the growth scenario up to 2020. The level of activity related to development projects remains high and Scania is investing in expanded production and service capacity.” For more information please see the attached pdf.

South Caernarfon Creameries confirms its’ £8.5million investment plan

The new facility will be on the Creamery’s site in Chwilog and will almost double production capability, increasing capacity from the current level of 9,500 tonnes to 17,000 tonnes. Work will start on the new build in summer 2014 and is expected to be completed and operational by summer 2015. The development will be phased. Phase 1 will cost £6 million and increase production to 11,000 tonnes. Phase 2, costing £2.5 million, will take production up to 17,000 tonnes. This second phase will be implemented as South Caernarfon’s milk field grows to support the additional capacity.  The new production unit will be best in class, efficient and flexible and will support South Caernarfon Creameries’ growth plans both with both existing and new customers. Current cheese production will not be affected by the new-build and the existing production unit will continue to be used until the new facility is fully operational. “As part of our strategic development, the Creamery initially announced plans for future investment at the site in autumn 2013. Since then, extensive due diligence has been carried out with the project gaining full board approval in June. The investment plans were communicated and discussed with our members in recent regional meetings and confirmed at our AGM on 16th July 2014” explains Alan Wyn-Jones, Managing Director at South Caernarfon Creameries. “This is a very exciting period in the next development phase of our business and we are extremely grateful to our customers and members for their continued support. We are also grateful to the Royal Bank of Scotland and the Welsh Assembly Government for their support to this project” The new facility will safeguard the existing 90 jobs and is likely to create an additional 10 jobs upon the completion of Phase 2. Any farmer milk suppliers interested in supplying milk to the Creamery should contact the Creamery direct. Ends

Expansion for Strakka Racing with all-new FR2.0 team for World Series by Renault Eurocup

Race-winning Formula Renault 3.5 (FR3.5) Series competitors Strakka Racing will expand its single seater operations with the creation of an all-new Formula Renault 2.0 (FR2.0) team. The Silverstone-based squad collected two new chassis from the Alpine Renault factory in Dieppe and will commence a full testing programme next week ahead of an anticipated race debut at the Hungaroring in September. The extension of the team into FR2.0 fills the gap between the new for 2014 Strakka Zanardi karting team and its existing FR3.5 squad on the single seater ladder.  With another category in place, Strakka Racing and its Driver Support Programme, Strakka Performance, now offer a consistent and stable environment at  each of the crucial early stages of a driver’s career and notably, at the critical step from karting to cars. “Strakka Racing has a vision to provide drivers with support on and off the track and this is now coming together with the karting, FR2.0 teams and our growing Performance Centre,” says team principal Dan Walmsley. “The latter encompasses simulation and data, fitness, nutrition, driver coaching and if needed, driver management. We believe that this in-house support, available for a driver serious about competing on these first rungs of the motorsport ladder is unparalleled.” With extensive single-seater experience, Lewis Williamson will conduct the initial shakedown at Pembrey.  The team will then run at further tests for new drivers at Anglesey and Aragon.  “Lewis is highly talented and will provide the initial feedback to engineers at the initial shakedown.  In parallel, we are already running a FR2.0 model on our own simulator so by the time we put our drivers in the car, we will be ready.” With the cars freshly purchased, drivers are yet to be confirmed but Strakka Racing is talking to both karters and junior single-seater racers to fill the two berths. “Tim Sugden is another recent addition to Strakka Racing, bringing twenty years’ of experience of both driver management and coaching,” says Walmsley. “Having done it all himself, seen everything and helped many successful drivers to progress, such as our own Will Stevens, he brings that trusted support element that junior drivers need to gain confidence and speed. He is already in discussions with a few good people to sign.” Drivers wishing to discuss testing or 2015 drives with Strakka Racing, please contact tim.sugden@strakkaracing.com About Strakka Racing From early domestic campaigns with BMWs and Aston Martins, Strakka Racing has evolved to become one of the most respected and successful privateer teams in the World Endurance Championship.  In 2010 the Silverstone-based team achieved a class win, five circuit records and fifth overall in the iconic Le Mans 24 Hours. In 2013, it secured a second class win the LMP1 Privateers class at Le Mans. Ever developing, in 2013 Strakka Racing entered the Formula Renault 3.5 litre World Series single seater championship, regarded as one of the best training grounds before F1. In 2014 Strakka Racing joins forces with esteemed Japanese chassis manufacturer DOME to develop, market and race the Strakka DOME S103 chassis. Alongside the racing teams, it also runs Strakka Performance, providing professional racing drivers with bespoke programmes aimed at enhancing their on-track performance. Unlike many training regimes, Strakka Performance goes beyond the gym with dedicated track time and coaching in World Series by Renault cars. It has also created Zanardi Strakka Kart racing team and a Formula Renault 2.0 team, putting in place the building blocks to enable racing drivers to develop and refine their skills right from the start of their career with a support infrastructure that goes beyond any typical racing team. www.strakkaracing.com Contacts PR Contact Nick Bailey, Propel Technology, nick@propel-technology.com 07813 956664

Interim report, January 1 – June 30, 2014

Summary of the second quarter, April – June 2014 · Net sales amounted to SEK 371.3 M (337.9), up 10 percent. · EBITA rose to SEK 27.3 M (19.5), an EBITA margin of 7.4 percent (5.8). · Operating profit increased to SEK 18.5 M (13.9), an operating margin of 5.0 percent (4.1). · After-tax profit increased to SEK 14.4 M (9.9). · Earnings per share after dilution rose to SEK 0.49 (0.35). · Cash flow from operating activities amounted to SEK 13.9 M (20.2). · The acquisition of Symetri in the UK, with annual sales of approximately SEK 80 M, was completed. Summary of the first six months of the year, January – June 2014 · Net sales amounted to SEK 782.7 M (708.6), up 10 percent. · EBITA rose to SEK 61.6 M (48.1), an EBITA margin of 7.9 percent (6.8). · Operating profit increased to SEK 44.9 M (37.2), an operating margin of 5.7 percent (5.2). · After-tax profit increased to SEK 33.6 M (28.0). · Earnings per share after dilution rose to SEK 1.13 (0.99). · Cash flow from operating activities amounted to SEK 85.7 M (65.8). CEO’s comments Increased sales, improved margins and a new marketIn the second quarter, we noted growth of 10 percent, we improved our margins and we opened up a new geographic market through the acquisition of Symetri in the UK. Although the market remains cautious, demand is nevertheless stable in most areas. The prevailing macroeconomic climate has resulted in some restraint in the willingness to invest of our customers active in more capital-intensive industries, such as oil and gas, maritime industry and the construction sector. Consequently, order bookings were slightly weaker in the Design Management business area. Despite this, we are experiencing growth that is both organic and originating from previously implemented acquisitions. In general, we are involved in several favorable transactions and have a solid underlying business strengthened by the fact that the proportion of recurring revenue from support and maintenance agreements, as well as from SaaS solutions, is increasing. The profitability improvement is attributable to increased sales, as well as efficiency enhancements and cost adaptations in operations, primarily in the PLM and Content Management business areas. We are continuing to execute our strategy, which involves building in our selected areas of operation brick by brick. The acquisition of Symetri is in line with our strategy, in which we aim to expand an existing business area into a new geographic market. We are busy transferring our product portfolio, our service offering and our sales models for customers with global operations. Symetri gains us a foothold in a market that is expected to become one of Europe’s most rapidly expanding economies in 2014.Staffan Hanstorp, CEO and PresidentThe information in this Interim Report is such that Addnode Group must disclose in accordance with the Swedish Securities and Clearing Operations Act and/or the Financial Instruments Trading Act.

Paf donate 5,500 euros to Brazilian Charity

Prior to the recently concluded World Cup, Paf launched a cross-border charity initiative, focusing on the host country Brazil, pledging to donate 500 euros for each goal the Brazilian national team scored during the tournament. Brazil scored a total of 11 goals during the World Cup. That means 5,500 euros will be given to support the charity Casa dos Pobres in Nova Friburgo, which is located just close to Rio de Janeiro. Two of those behind the charity initiative are IFK Mariehamn’s Brazilian football stars, Bernardo Ribeiro and Diego Assis. “The donation is extremely important for Casa dos Pobres’ work and will contribute to helping provide many less well-off people with food, clothes and other support in their lives. The local population in Nova Friburgo are still suffering because of the landslide that hit the town three years ago. That’s why Paf’s charity initiative is so impressive and shows the power of football to unite us even though the distance between Brazil and Finland can seem like a long way,” said IFK Mariehamn’s midfielder, Bernardo Ribeiro, whose family live in Nova Friburgo. The charity initiative was launched in the run up to Paf Carnival, which took place on Åland between 4 and 13 July. Paf Carnival had Brazil and the World Cup as its themes focusing on food, drink, music, song, entertainment and samba. Over 20,000 people visited the 10-day-long event, which was arranged by Paf, IFK Mariehamn and Åland United.

SEK Interim Report 2 2014 - SEK plays important role for long-term and sustainable financing

SEK's lending to Swedish exporters and their customers during the first half of 2014 amounted to Skr 29.4 billion (1H13: Skr 38.1 billion). Demand for financing from SEK has been good, although volumes were not as high as during the first half of 2013 when the level of end-customer finance was unusual high. The levels of the new end-customer finance in the first half of 2014 amounted to Skr 17.5 billion (1H13: Skr 27.4 billion). The volume of new corporate lending amounted to Skr 11.9 billion (1H13: Skr 10.7 billion). Access to financing is considered good by major exporters, while the exporting SMEs report inferior access to financing, according to SEK’s Export Credit Trends Survey in June 2014. Companies no longer view the krona’s exchange rate as a disadvantage and the cost of financing has been affected positively by lower interest rate levels. Despite good access to the capital market in the current situation, the demand for finance from SEK has been at a relatively high level. The volume of corporate lending increased slightly while the volume of financing to the Swedish exporters' customers, end-customer finance, decreased to corresponding levels as in previous years. -          During my first months as President of SEK, I have had the opportunity to meet many of our clients. I want to understand the expectations that our clients have of our work and what aspects of our business they feel we can enhance. The overall impression I have gained from these meetings is that our clients are very satisfied and that SEK plays a vital role in supporting the export sector with long-term, sustainable financing, says SEK’s President Catrin Fransson. Net interest income is lower for the first half of 2014 compared to last year, which is due to the fact that structured borrowing was redeemed early and has been replaced by simpler loan structures with higher funding costs, and because the margins for liquidity placements have declined. · New lending to and for Swedish exporters was Skr 29.4 billion (1H13: Skr 38.1 billion) · Net interest income amounted to Skr 720.2 million (1H13: Skr 813.1 million) · Operating profit for the period amounted to Skr 836.1 million (1H13: Skr 105.0 million) · The return on equity was 8.5 percent (1.1) After-tax return on equity excluding net results of financial transactions was 4.6 percent (5.9) · The outstanding volume of offers for credits at the end of the period was Skr 61.7 billion (year-end 2013: Skr 65.5 billion) · The Common Equity Tier 1 capital ratio was 17.1 percent, according to CRR, at the end of the period (19.5 percent at year-end of 2013 according to Basel II) CONTACTEdvard Unsgaard, Head of Communications SEK. +46-8-613 84 88

AAK continues to expand in Turkey and acquires one more brand from Unilever

Frita, a market leader in the frying oil segment in Turkey, covers a significant part of the local Food Service market. The brand had revenues of approximately SEK 75 million in 2013.

Summer of fun for families at York Minster

From helmets inspired by the Romans who once billeted on the site, to colourful sun catchers reflecting light like the 128 medieval windows in the building, families visiting York Minster this summer can enjoy a host of activities to engage and enthuse parents and young visitors alike. Craft workshops will take place each Wednesday from 23 July until 27 August, with different themed activities each week taking inspiration from a different aspect of the Minster’s 2000 year heritage.  The first session on 23 July will see young artists creating their own Roman helmets to take home, with subsequent sessions featuring 3d illuminated letters on 30 July, making a Viking longship on 6 August, sparkling sun catchers on 13 August and medieval shields on 20 August.  The summer programme concludes on 27 August, looking at how the Blue Peter ceiling bosses were made nearly 30 years ago, before participants get messy creating their own versions out of clay. “When you’ve got 2000 years of history from which to draw your inspiration, it wasn’t too difficult to come up with some fantastic ideas for summer workshops, and we’re really looking forward to welcoming younger visitors in to get crafty,” comments learning manager, Kate Whitworth.  “All of these activities are suitable for those aged five and up, with parents invited to join them and help out as part of the family fun.” For families visiting at other times of the week, York Minster offers a series of family-friendly trails and quizzes which can be downloaded free of charge from the website (www.yorkminster.org) with challenges including hunting for dragons, exploring the Minster with the help of Monty the Monkey, and exploring a pilgrim’s trail around the cathedral.  Visitors can also pick up an Explorer Backpack from the admissions desk, which includes essential tools for any explorer including a torch and mirror, compass, magnifying glass and a host of pencils and paper to help record their discoveries! Even younger visitors will not be left over the summer, with a special story chest installed in the Children’s Chapel, full of books and puppets to enjoy and play with. The family trails and Explorer Backpacks are available every day in York Minster, and best of all, children go free with a paying adult!  Ticket prices are £10.00 for adults (each ticket is valid for a full year) or £9.00 for concessions and students.  York Minster is open daily from 9.00am – 5.00pm (Monday to Saturday) and 12.45pm to 5.00pm on Sundays.

Key FiguresFor Key Figures summary table, please refer to attached file below. Comments from Jan Carlson, Chairman, President & CEO   “In the second quarter we saw solid growth across our markets, notably North America, Europe and Japan. The exception was Brazil where we saw a sharp decline in light vehicle production. In addition, our main growth engines over the last two years, China and active safety, continued their strong performance.Coming from low production levels, Europe saw its sixth consecutive quarter of growth with European car sales growing by 7% in the first half of 2014. At the moment we see a slow but sustained recovery in Europe. This supports the operational improvement program in our European steering wheel business which is developing in line with the original plan outlined last year.The growth in Japan was a positive surprise. At the beginning of the quarter a decline of the light vehicle production was expected as a result of an increase in the Japanese consumption tax. Instead, we saw slight growth and a favorable product mix for Autoliv which led to double digit growth. A sustained recovery in the Japanese economy could also reflect positively on the light vehicle production moving forward.Active safety showed solid growth in the quarter and in order to support the continued growth and development in this business we have decided to increase the development and engineering spending.In the current situation with millions of cars being recalled for safety related reasons the importance of quality cannot be overemphasized. In this environment we continue to further build our position as the industry’s quality leader, as our business is all about saving lives.With these issues in mind we continue the focus on our growth strategy, quality, and execution of the 2014 transition. ” An earnings conference call will be held at 3:00 p.m. (CET) today, July 18.

During the quarter, several innovations and product launches were carried out under the Libero, Libresse, TENA and Tork brands. The efficiency programs in the hygiene and forest products operations continue to deliver cost savings according to plan. Our Tissue and Forest Products business areas showed significant earnings growth. Personal Care was negatively impacted by higher raw material costs and negative exchange rate effects in emerging markets. Consolidated net sales for the second quarter of 2014 grew 12% compared with the same period a year ago. Organic sales growth was 3.3% and pertained to all business areas. Growth was mainly in emerging markets and in the Forest Products business area. Operating profit for the second quarter of 2014, excluding items affecting comparability, rose 29% compared with the same period a year ago. The increase is mainly attributable to a better price/mix, higher volumes, cost savings, the acquisition of the majority shareholding in the Chinese company Vinda, and gains on forest swaps. The operating margin excluding items affecting comparability increased by 1.5 percentage points to 11.4%. Earnings per share grew by 56%. Operating cash flow increased by 28% to SEK 2,060m. As part of our strategy to grow in emerging markets, SCA and Vinda have concluded an agreement under which Vinda will take over SCA’s hygiene operations in China, which will lead to mutual benefits in distribution, sales, innovation, and research and development. SCA’s joint venture in Australia, New Zealand and Fiji – Asaleo Care – has been floated on the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX). SCA’s holding in Asaleo Care after the IPO is approximately 32.5%.  For further information, please contact:Johan Karlsson, Vice President Investor Relations, Group Function Communications, +46 8 788 51 30Boo Ehlin, Vice President Media Relations, Group Function Communications, +46 8 788 51 36Joséphine Edwall-Björklund, Senior Vice President, Group Function Communications, +46 8 788 52 34  NBSCA discloses the information provided herein pursuant to the Securities Markets Act.

Boliden’s Q2: High production and strong cash flow

“The last quarter was a good one for Boliden, with record production levels at Aitik and production further boosted by Garpenberg’s new facility. Production by Business Area Smelters was stable, given the maintenance shutdowns during the quarter, and the action plan at Rönnskär is continuing to yield good results. The high production levels did, however, generate increased costs, and rising metal prices resulted in internal profits that have not, as yet, been realised within the consolidated profit,” says Boliden’s President & CEO, Lennart Evrell. The positive production trend at the Aitik mine continued during the quarter, with a milled tonnage volume of just over 10 million tonnes – the highest ever for a single quarter. Boliden Mines’ results were boosted by the Garpenberg mine’s volumes, but impacted by increased depreciation. Production by Boliden Smelters was stable and the maintenance shutdowns went better than planned. The shutdowns did result in a fall in smelter production and higher costs in comparison with the previous quarter, but this was compensated for by improvements in prices, TC/RC and exchange rates. Strong growth in China and a continued recovery in the mature economies have contributed to a year on year growth in demand for Boliden’s main metals, copper and zinc, of just over 4 per cent. By the end of the quarter, the price of zinc had reached its highest level since August 2011. “The market’s mood has gradually improved. Expectations of a copper surplus have declined while the anticipated shortage of zinc concentrate is becoming increasingly likely. The weaker Swedish krona is also having a positive effect on Boliden’s figures in that our sales are all made in US dollars, while the majority of our costs are in SEK,” explains Lennart Evrell. On 8thJuly, Boliden entered into an agreement with Altona Mining to buy the Kylylahti copper mine, together with exploration rights and deposits in eastern Finland. The consideration amounts to USD 95 million. “We see several synergies in mining, metallurgy and exploration. The acquisition will also establish Boliden as a mining company in Finland, where we are already a significant smelting company. We are now awaiting the approval of the Finnish Competition and Consumer Authority and the Altona Mining Limited shareholders,” concludes Lennart Evrell, President & CEO of Boliden.  For further information, please contact: Marcela Sylvander, Group Communications, tel: +46 (0)733 2445512Sophie Arnius, Investor Relations, tel: +46 (0)70 590 80 72   Boliden is a metals company with a commitment to sustainable development.

385/65 R 22.5 X MULTI T LAUNCH SHOWS NEW LEVELS OF INNOVATION FROM MICHELIN

Michelin has launched the new 385/65 R 22.5 X Multi T trailer tyre across Europe, following its exclusive global preview at the CV Show in April 2014. The July launch coincides with the release of performance data highlighting the tyre’s ability to further reduce total cost of ownership for operators, with a 0.7 litre saving in fuel per 100km* and a 10 per cent increase in mileage potential versus its predecessor. The new tyre also offers excellent longitudinal grip and lateral grip on dry and wet surfaces owing to its innovative tread design, which makes for highly effective water dispersal and even wear – particularly important given trailer tyres are responsible for 45 per cent of the braking performance on a fully loaded articulated vehicle. The groove design and longer ridges also contribute to ensuring the tyre is marked M+S (mud + snow), an indication of its suitability for winter conditions. The new 65-series X Multi T sets the benchmark for ‘regional’ trailer tyres, replacing the XTE3 of the same size, which has sold more than 4 million units in Europe since its launch in 2007. Guy Heywood, Commercial Director of Michelin’s truck division in the UK and Ireland says: “We’ve taken a tyre popular with both trailer manufacturers and fleet operators alike, and built in new technology to deliver significant improvements on an already winning formula.” Key to the X Multi T is the introduction of a new rubber compound created by Michelin’s research and development teams, named ‘Carbion’. This innovation results from new components and a new compounding process which has lowered the tyre’s operating temperature** by 6°C, further reducing rolling resistance, fuel consumption and CO₂ emissions compared with the previous generation XTE3, whilst providing increased resistance to abrasion. Heywood adds: “The development of materials such as Carbion is a testament to the more than €600 million we spend every year on research and development. No other tyre manufacturer commits to this level of investment. It allows us to be at the forefront of innovation.” Using Michelin’s Remix retreading technology, the 65-series X Multi T has a retread acceptability rate of 88 per cent, ensuring operators can benefit from the multiple lives offered by Michelin truck tyres. When retreaded as a Michelin Remix tyre, an X Multi T will also benefit the environment through saving 55kg of raw materials versus manufacturing a completely new tyre. Both the new and Remix versions can be regrooved. The European tyre labelling system demonstrates why the 385/65 R 22.5 X Multi T is one of the best performing trailer tyres on the market, achieving excellent ratings in all three categories. It achieves a B in rolling resistance and wet braking and emits just 69 db of sound, placing it in the lowest noise category. Michelin will progressively introduce Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) chips into the X Multi T. The introduction of RFID into the Michelin line will lead to managers being able to track the use and condition of a fleet’s tyres. The new tyre is available as both original equipment and on the replacement market in the UK and Ireland, through the ATS Euromaster and independent Michelin Truck Professional networks. * Internal Michelin study.

POOLIA INTERIM REPORT 1 JANUARY – 30 JUNE 2014

Quarterly period April-June, continuing operationsReported revenue, earnings, cash flow and financial ratios relate to continuing operations, and do not include Utvecklingshuset and the UK. · Poolia's revenue amounted to SEK 176.8 (188.2) million, a decline of 6.1%. · Operating profit/loss was SEK -3.1 (-3.0) million, with an operating margin of -1.7% (-1.6%). · Profit/loss before tax was SEK -3.1 (-3.0) million. · Profit/loss after tax was SEK -2.8 (-2.2) million. · Earnings per share amounted to SEK -0.16 (-0.13). · Cash flow from operations for the quarter was SEK 2.4 (7.1) million. Discontinued operations · Profit/loss from discontinued operations was SEK 0.0(-2.4) million in the second quarter and SEK -1.6 (-3.4) million in the period January-June. · Cash flow from divested operations, including the sale of the UK operations, during the period January-June was SEK 7.1 million. Interim period January-June, continuing operationsReported revenue, earnings, cash flow and financial ratios relate to continuing operations, and do not include Utvecklingshuset and the UK. · Poolia's revenue amounted to SEK 358.4 (382.4) million, a decline of 6.3%. · Operating profit/loss was SEK 0.9 (1.4) million, with an operating margin of 0.3% (0.4%). · Profit/loss before tax was SEK 0.7 (1.3) million. · Profit/loss after tax was SEK -0.1 (1.1) million. · Earnings per share amounted to SEK -0.01 (0.07). · Cash flow from operations for the period was SEK 10.1 (12.8) million. · The equity/assets ratio ended the period at 30.7% (30.2%), and the Group’s equity per share was SEK 3.79 (4.50). From the CEO - "Continuing focus on increased sales and improved profitability"Poolia's revenues for continuing operations in the second quarter showed a decline of SEK 11.4 million (6.1%) compared with the second quarter of 2013. Operating profit/loss for the same period was SEK -3.1 (-3.0) million. The Swedish business accounted for 68% of the Group's revenue during the quarter. Poolia’s sales and profitability were too low during the period, this partly due to seasonality, with fewer working days than in other quarters. The cost of unplaced resource temps did not start to fall until the end of the period. During the quarter, we incurred transition of costs of SEK 3.0 million (SEK 4.4 million for the year-to-date). Poolia's German business is developing well, showing growth of 41% and a significant increase in operating profit. Our Finnish operations also had a good second quarter. Growth compared with the second quarter of the previous year was 61%, still with an acceptable operating profit. Poolia Group's revenues from continuing operations decreased by SEK 24.0 million (6.3%) during the first half of 2014. Operating profit for the same period amounted to SEK 0.9 (1.4) million, leaving an operating margin of 0.3% (0.4%). Cash flow for the period was SEK 10.1 (12.8) million. The Group's liquidity is good. Poolia's operations in Sweden need to be improved significantly. The competitive situation in Sweden is tough, and Poolia has not been able to adapt its core business to the prevailing situation. This has resulted in a downturn in revenue, reduced market share and negative profitability. To return Poolia Sweden to a positive trend, we are carrying out a programme of measures that aim not only to cut costs by SEK 15 million on an annual basis, but also to increase market presence in the form of intensified sales and marketing. Poolia is an important company in an industry that develops the Swedish labour market. We have a good future and we must manage it in the best possible way. Morten WernerManaging Director and CEO

IS THERE AN APP FOR THAT? KNICKET LAUNCHES APP SEARCH ENGINE

Apps anyone? Knicket the app search engine (http://www.knicket.com/) makes web history this week as it officially launches following 12 months in development and beta testing. Cleverly designed to make searching for apps and games a breeze, Knicket works just like a traditional search engine but for apps instead of web pages. Created to help smartphone and tablet users navigate the increasingly cluttered urban jungle, Knicket removes the guess work from app downloads. Built on an asynchronous database, Knicket apps are tailored and transparent, highlighting the most suitable apps for each search. With an intuitive selection of savvy search tools, the real time engine guides users to the most suitable apps for their needs. A suite of clever tools such as user rating filters, a price slider and suggested tags to accompany the original search term quickly narrows down the 2 million apps available though the Apple App Store and Google Play store into a carefully curated list. A tagging system allows users to narrow search results and, because Knicket is an independent app search, results that are displayed are the best and true. This means the order isn’t determined by app store interests, getting the user to the most relevant result and most appropriate app for their needs in no time at all. Uwe Flade, Knicket Founder and CCO said, “Knicket is the fastest and best app search engine. Based on the latest technology and 100% independent, we use filters and sorting options to help the user refine their results. With millions of apps to choose from, this level of control is absolutely essential. There are more than 3500 fitness apps alone. iTunes and Google Play do not allow users to filter such results. Knicket does. For total convenience, Knicket also offers a web based app that can be used with all smart phones, no matter what the operating system. The interface will be improved further over the next few months for a totally slick browsing experience.” Dr. Thomas Jung, founder and CEO said, “Approximately 40,000 new apps are added to the App Store and Google Play each month. How do you know which app best suits your needs? How many pages of results do you need to scroll through and how many apps do you need to download before you find the one that does the job? Knicket gets it. “Type in a query, use Knicket’s tags to narrow or refine search results and add in as many filters as you want to get the best apps for your needs. No more frustrating downloads, false starts or hours spent trawling through page after page of two expensive apps. Search, select, download. It’s that easy. We expect knicket will be the app Wikipedia and Google in one.” Users heading to Knicket to find their perfect app simply type in their search term (for example San Francisco), use the suggested tags to refine the search (for example City Guide or Weather), and hit find. Apply filters to narrow down the hunt, view by price, choose to lock out apps below a certain star rating, order by release date or by number of downloads. There’s also an option to cut out apps with in-app purchasing, making Knicket the slickest way to search all iOS and Android apps. In the six months since it went live, Knicket has helped more than 600,000 users in 193 countries. Initially available in English, it will roll out almost a dozen foreign language versions before the end of 2014 and has plans to increase functionality and monetize its results with additional advertising options. Free to use, Knicket has already raised more than €126,185,00 in seed funding through the companisto.com crowdfunding platform, with the campaign still ongoing. The German funding bank IBB has also provided a €160,000 funding loan. To find out more visit www.knicket.com

Tiddlybot encourages higher order thinking skills

Developed to help young people learn about robotics, programming the Tiddlybot was recently launched on Kickstarter (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1320310506/tiddlybot-fun-and-simple-raspberry-pi-robot). The tiddlyBot is based on the lowcost Raspberry Pi mini-computer and allows users to turn a Raspberry Pi into a fun little robot.  The famous little robot from developers Agilic; featured in Broadsheets from The Times to The Huffington Post (http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/2014/06/27/technology-strategy-board-robotics-mission-2014_n_5536382.html?utm_hp_ref=uk); can draw, follow lines, output a live wireless video feed and be controlled from a web interface, from a smart phone, tablet or any other PC with a browser. In a time where learning to learn has never been more relevant, the Tiddlybot encourages development of such learning skills as problem solving, programming and the basics of robotics; something which the next generation will need to understand in the way that the current children of the 70s and 80s embraced computers. Able to follow pre-drawn lines, tiddlybot can be a 'good little robot' by demonstrating this true autonomous behaviour.  In addition it can draw lines, which can again either be pre programmed or - and this is the fun bit - freestyle!With a developing team made up of students spanning two continents, the spokesman for Tiddlybot, Harry Gee said, "we've been working hard to create something to engage and empower the next generation of engineers, programmers and scientists and we think Tiddlybot is fantastic at focusing all types of learners." Children find it easy to use and fun to play with; as do adults. The driving force behind its creation was empowering our future generations with some of the fundamentals of programming, whilst supporting the learning of  Python and Javascript for more advanced students. The team has taken care to integrate efficient power conversion to allow the batteries to last for longer and there's also an option for onboard battery charging for minimising fuss. Both hardware and software used for the project were designed to be simple and straightforward to use, building confidence with robotics and engineering for learners. With starting pledges to attend a robot making workshop starting at just $15, the Tiddlybot offers a cost effective way to develop young people's minds in an wide range of areas. To purchase a build-your-own version, pledgers are asked for $44 or to own just the interface $37, so there's an option available for every budget. 'Tiddles', as the company affectionately refer to it, comes in a range of colours as well as a wood version; made from sustainable plywood. The Kickstarter campaign seeks to fund research into the many ways the Tiddlybot, and other Raspberry Pi bots can be adapted and applied to enhance the learning of Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM). To pledge to fund this innovative and future thinking technology, please visit the Kickstarter campaign and see the video at https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1320310506/tiddlybot-fun-and-simple-raspberry-pi-robot

Resounding recitals for summer Saturdays at York Minster

It has often been said that the cavernous space within York Minster provides the organ with the most acoustically stunning sound that has few rivals, and this July and August, visitors will have the chance to listen to the instrument played by some of the best organists around as part of the Summer Organ Recitals series, each Saturday from 26 July to 23 August 2014. Graham Barber is well known as an international concert organist, described by Gramophone Magazine as ‘one of the organ world’s finest recording artists’.  He opens the concert season, taking to the console on Saturday 26 July. John Scott Whiteley has been associated with  York Minster’s organ for many years  and now has the title Organist Emeritus (an honorary title given to those who retire from service) and played in the Minster from 1975 until 2010, before retiring from the ‘day job’ to pursue a freelance career.  He has 26 solo CDs to his credit, and features on almost as many as an accompanist.  He returns to the Minster on Saturday 2 August. Peter King is the director of music at Bath Abbey, where he not only plays but also helped design and install the Klais organ.  Peter and will be performing on Saturday 9 August, following a tour to The Netherlands. The final two concerts will be performed by York Minster’s current musical team, starting with assistant director of music, David Pipe, who takes to the console on 16 August.  Robert Sharpe, the director of music for York Minster, completes the line-up and the Summer Organ Recital series, on 23 August.  “We are delighted to be welcoming Graham Barber and Peter King for this concert series, and it is always an absolute pleasure to hear John Scott Whiteley’s return to York Minster, so we are very much looking forward to this year’s Summer Organ Recitals,” comments Robert Sharpe.  “With an instrument as complex as the organ in York Minster, it will come as no surprise that each performer bring their own style and sound to their performances, so this should make one of our best ever summer seasons.” The origins of the main pipe organ in York Minster date from 1834, when it was rebuilt following a major fire of 1829, and has since been refurbished and reconstructed a number of times.  The most obvious part of the organ – the decorative pipes on the front of the Kings Screen – do not actually sound, with the majority of the sounding pipes located behind the front and in the aisles on either side.  The most recent refurbishment took place in 1993, although regular maintenance and tuning has to take place to keep the organ in peak condition.  As constant a temperature and humidity level within the cathedral is important to keep the instrument in tune. Tickets for each concert at £9.00, and available from the York Minster box office or online at www.yorkminster.org ENDS Performer biographies About Graham Barber Since his début in London at the Royal Festival Hall in 1979, Graham Barber has been recognised as one of the world’s leading concert organists. He has given concerts in major venues in Britain, Europe, the Far East, the United States and Australia, and has been widely broadcast. Reviewing his first recording in 1975, the Sunday Times described him as a ‘technically brilliant, musically mature organist.’ He has made CDs on many English, German and Dutch organs and has been described in Gramophone magazine as ‘one of the organ world’s finest recording artists.’ Emeritus Professor at the University of Leeds since 2009 and sometime Visiting Tutor in Organ Studies at the Royal Northern College of Music, Manchester, Graham Barber is a freelance concert organist and keyboard player and Organist at St. Bartholomew’s Church, Armley where he is custodian of the celebrated Schulze organ. He has given master-classes at conservatories in Weimar, Enschede, Braga, Lisbon and Cologne. In October 2004 he was Distinguished Academic Visitor at the University of Adelaide. In 2006 he was the recipient of a prestigious NESTA Fellowship (http://grahambarber.org.uk/nesta-fellowship/) from the National Endowment for Science, Technology and the Arts. Graham Barber has performed in concert with many of the world’s leading conductors including Sir Edward Downes, Sir Charles Groves, Richard Hickox, Sir Charles Mackerras, Sir Georg Solti, Jan Pascal Tortelier and Sir David Willcocks. About John Scott Whiteley John Scott Whiteley is Organist Emeritus of York Minster, having worked at that great cathedral from 1975 until 2010 when he retired from the Minster in order to pursue his freelance career. During the past ten years he has become well-known for his performances on BBC2 and BBC4 television of the complete organ music of Johann Sebastian Bach.  21st-Century Bach was a joint commission by BBC2 and BBC4 and began in 2001. The series continues and is planned to run for several more years, after which time some eighty programmes will have covered Bach's entire output for organ. The series was described by the British daily national newspaper, The Daily Telegraph, as "a triumph both nationally and musically." Having studied at the Royal College of Music with Ralph Downes and W.S. Lloyd Webber, and with Flor Peeters in Malines and Fernando Germani in Siena, John Scott Whiteley won first prize in the1976 National Organ Competition of Great Britain. He then performed at the Royal Festival Hall, for the UK Annual Conference of the Incorporated Association of Organists, and at festivals throughout Europe. In 2013 he was selected as the organist for the Bach Recitals at St Petersburg's Mariinsky Concert Hall, which took place before audiences of over a thousand people. Since 1985 John has toured the USA every year. John now has twenty-six solo CD recordings to his credit, and a further twenty-two as accompanist. His CD, Great Romantic Organ Music, appeared for eight years in the Penguin Good CD Guide as one of the best recorded organ recitals, and several other CDs have won awards, notably a Critic's Choice Award from The Gramophone. About Peter King A former student of Dame Gillian Weir and Allan Wicks (Organ), and Ronald Smith (Piano), Peter King was appointed Director of Music at Bath Abbey in 1986. Under his direction the Abbey Choir has visited Germany, Holland and France, and has released six CDs and broadcast on BBC TV and Radio 3. In 1997 Peter started a Girls’ Choir at Bath Abbey; it quickly established itself as one of the finest musical ensembles in Bath. Together with Nicolas Kynaston, Peter was responsible for the design and installation of the Abbey’s Klais Organ. His seven CDs with Bath Abbey Choir and his 12 CDs on the new abbey organ have been highly acclaimed by the critics. Peter was Assistant Chorus Director to the CBSO during all of Sir Simon Rattle’s reign as Musical Director and he still plays the organ regularly with the orchestra. He plays on Rattle’s EMI recordings of Mahler’s Resurrection Symphony and Symphony of a Thousand. His recitals at the Bath Mozartfest have been broadcast on BBC Radio 3. Peter King holds the honorary degree of Doctor of Music from the University of Bath. About David Pipe David Pipe joined York Minster as Assistant Director of Music in September 2008, having previously played the organ at Guildford Cathedral.  He read Music at Cambridge University, later studying organ at the Royal Academy of Music, having gained a postgraduate entrance scholarship.

The world’s last flying Avro Vulcan to fly at the Farnborough International Air Show this weekend

The world’s last airworthy Avro Vulcan will take to the skies once again at the famous Farnborough International Air Show. XH558 returned to flight earlier this year, following a remarkable modification to her wings that was funded entirely by her supporters. More than £400,000 was raised to give the iconic all-British jet a further two years flying by extending the life of her airframe. “We are absolutely delighted that the Vulcan is returning to the Farnborough International Air Show once again, where I am sure she will receive a tremendously warm welcome,” says Dr Robert Pleming, chief executive of Vulcan to the Sky Trust. “It is particularly gratifying for us to be able to bring the Vulcan back to the iconic location where the prototype made such a spectacular public debut so many years ago.” Avro Vulcan’s association with the show started more than sixty years ago when the prototype aircraft stunned audiences with a surprise appearance in 1952. Sadly, due to XH558 approaching the end of her flying life, this year’s Farnborough Air Show (which is held every two years), could be the last at which a Vulcan will fly. Vulcan history at Farnborough It is sixty two years since the prototype Vulcan’s first dramatic appearance at the famous Farnborough event, when just three days after the first flight, test pilot Roly Falk made a solo sortie to Farnborough where he stunned the world’s aviation industry with the snow-white aircraft’s dramatic delta-profile and impressive agility, performing an almost vertical bank in front of the crowds. “People who were there at the time have said that the Vulcan almost literally took their breath away,” said Dr Pleming. “The aircraft was so new that it was referred to as ‘Avro prototype 698’ although the press were speculating that it would be called Ottawa!” In 1955 Falk returned and, to emphasise that the giant bomber handled like a jet fighter, performed a now legendary barrel roll. Help needed to fund Summer Flying While growing commercial income makes a contribution to the £2.2 million annual budget for operating XH558, she is still very much dependent on support from the British public. To fund the summer flying activities, the Vulcan to the Sky Trust has launched a new raffle with ‘money can’t buy’ prizes that include a flight alongside XH558 in a Spitfire. There are also a range of other incentives and unique Vulcan memorabilia for those who support the last flying Vulcan.  More information can be found at the following website: http://www.vulcanxh558raffle.co.uk/ Please visit the ‘Vulcan Village’ on the Saturday and Sunday of the show to see our wide range of merchandise and to meet with members of the Vulcan to the Sky team, including the aircrew. We will also be offering tours under the wings of the aircraft. More information can be found on the charity’s website; www.vulcantothesky.org including details about the aircraft’s list of summer engagements. There is also a popular Facebook community at www.facebook.com/VulcanXH558 and a Twitter feed at #XH558.

Why is the Vulcan Important? The Avro Vulcan is an iconic example of British aerospace engineering at its world-beating best. The design brief was issued by the MoD in 1946 and the aircraft flew for the first time on August 30th1952, just eleven years after the first flight of its predecessor, the Avro Lancaster. Its impressive list of technical achievements includes being the first successful large delta wing aircraft (leading directly to Concorde), innovations such as electrically-powered flying controls, one of the first applications of anti-lock brakes, and a speed and agility that was so close to a jet fighter’s that it was given a fighter-style control column in place of the traditional bomber pilot’s yoke. Success as a Cold War peacekeeper meant that the Vulcan might have flown its entire service life without ever entering combat if it hadn’t been for the Falklands Conflict in 1982. During a marathon 8,000 mile flight supported by eleven Victor tankers, Squadron Leader Martin Withers and his crew released the bombs over Port Stanley Airport that prevented Argentina operating its Mirage III fighters from the island and initiated the campaign that recaptured the Falklands. Two years later, the last Vulcans were withdrawn from service. Squadron Leader Withers earned a Distinguished Flying Cross for his part in this action. Today, only one Vulcan is left flying: XH558, owned by the Vulcan to the Sky Trust, a Registered Charity. Returned to the air in 2007 following one of the world’s most challenging restoration programmes, she has become an air show phenomenon. “People forget that air shows attract seven million people annually. As a spectator activity, that’s second only to football,” says Dr Pleming. “An appearance by the Vulcan builds even on this remarkable level, typically increasing attendance by 20-40 percent. Air show organisers talk about ‘the Vulcan Effect’ and have described the aircraft as a national treasure.” Squadron Leader Martin Withers DFC is a passionate supporter of the educational role of the aircraft. “Part of our mission is to ensure that young people learn about the knife-edge fear of the Cold War,” he explains. “If I had been ordered to press the button that releases the nuclear payload over our enemy, there would almost certainly have been no Britain left to fly home to. The Vulcan is the most powerful symbol of a remarkable period in global history that we must never forget” Withers is also passionate about the aircraft’s growing role in technical education. “This is one of the most significant steps forward in aerospace technology ever, and it is thoroughly British. The Vulcan fires young people with a passion to develop and build world-beating technologies. And we can help give them those skills through training that call upon the extraordinary knowledge, rigour and precision needed to restore and maintain the UK’s only flying ‘complex’ heritage aircraft to world-class safety standards.” When the combination of age and complexity of the aircraft eventually prevents further renewal of her Permit to Fly, it is hoped that she will form the heart of a new type of engineering education initiative; and inspirational engineering, education and Experience centre.

Nürburgring circuit modelled for the first time with sufficient accuracy to allow representative engineering simulation

Hertfordshire, UK, 18th July 2014... Specialist software company rFpro has modelled the entire Nordschleife circuit at the Nürburgring, Germany, with an accuracy never before achieved. The data has been incorporated into the company’s latest simulation software, TerrainServer, and allows real chassis engineering development in a virtual environment with every bump, kerb, ripple and camber from the actual track. “Established simulator technology is fine for driver training in terms of which way the corners go but limited for use in vehicle development,” explained rFpro’s technical director, Chris Hoyle. “Our model of the Nordschleife sets a new standard, enabling customers to carry out suspension tuning or the development of chassis systems such as stability control with a simulator, and arrive at the circuit with a better optimised package.” Over four man-years of effort were required just to update the graphics to support the new model, indicating the scale of the engineering achievement in mapping such a long circuit (over 20.8km). Surveying was carried out by 3D Mapping Solutions GmbH with state-of-the-art phase-based LIDAR laser imaging technology resolving the entire track surface (over 250,000 m2) in 3D with an accuracy better than 1mm in Z (height) and 1cm in X and Y (position). This represents a ten-fold improvement over the resolution previously available. Having an accurate digital circuit model of a track that you visit regularly provides benefits both for your real car testing and for your simulation, according to Hoyle. “Simulation is nothing without correlation against real test data in order to update and improve the mathematical vehicle models,” he said. “At the same time, simulation allows more effective preparation for the real tests so vehicle developers can achieve more during their test window; essentially the two approaches benefit each other.”  Back at base, on the simulator, OEMs also benefit from the ability to speed up development by testing all year round, 24 hours a day, regardless of weather or track availability, on a consistent and repeatable road surface, and from improved confidentiality through keeping secret prototypes hidden until later in the development cycle. The method of data capture, using technology mounted on a small SUV, means the process can also be applied to public roads, whether urban, rural or inter-city highways, allowing vehicle makers to simulate specific road surface types and features. This means new models can be evaluated over the kinds of terrain found in different continents, ensuring compatibility with specific market conditions long before physical prototypes exist. During 2013 rFpro built a total of 402km of digital circuit models for their simulator clients, including proving grounds, test tracks, race tracks and public roads.  Since 2007 rFpro has captured and modelled over 50 circuits and test tracks and thousands of kilometres of public road to incorporate in its library of models for use with TerrainServer. About rFactor Pro rFpro is a specialist software company that has developed driver-in-the-loop simulators for vehicle dynamics applications, offering the fastest video and audio pipelines, an architecture for soft-real-time model execution and an optically correct off-platform vision system optimised for motion profiles suited to ride and handling development.

All Proceeds of the iBook So Sorry I’m Tardy to go to Children’s Charity on Prince George’s First Birthday

The author of this interactive audio children’s iBook So Sorry I’m Tardy has announced that she will give all proceeds from sales purchased on July 22nd 2014 to a children’s charity. The move comes after writer Chapeau Claudette read that “…. Wills and Kate have encouraged people to give donations to charity," to mark Prince George’s first birthday. So Sorry I’m Tardy is an interactive children’s bedtime story, narrated by an unborn baby and communicated to its parents and siblings.  The fairytale appeals to all ages, and is illustrated with mesmerizing images of clouds and blue skies.  Written by Chapeau Claudette, the title of the book was inspired by the words of William, Duke of Cambridge when asked about the late birth of his son.  He said of Prince George, “I’ll remind him of his tardiness when he’s a bit older.” Chapeau Claudette, author of iBook So Sorry I’m Tardy said, “To celebrate Prince George’s 1st birthday, I have decided to donate all profits from sales of the iBook to a children’s charity because I believe that all children have good intentions, and like the unborn baby in the book who plans to arrive/ be born on time, life happens and he is delayed and overdue. Coincidentally the photographs and illustrations seem to follow Prince George’s timeline.  However, So Sorry I’m Tardy is written in honor of all newborn babies; “I’ve given them a voice to reassure their expectant parents that there are reasons for the tardiness.” She continues, “I have notified the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge about my plans, and I received a reply from Her Royal Highness thanking me for the first printed copy of “So sorry I’m Tardy” they enjoyed and sent me their best wishes, which was an honor to receive.” The multi-touch ibook is available on iTunes. It is read aloud by Ms. Claudette alongside the photographs of clouds capturing the childhood pastime of finding shapes of people, animals and things in the sky.  The photographs of clouds, which Ms. Claudette took daily from her London rooftop in Pimlico, are accompanied by Chagallic-like sketches drawn by the fashion illustrator and designer Cassandra Postema (http://cassandrapostema.com/). The audio interactive book is available for iPads, iphones and Macs, in English and German.  To find out more visit www.sosorryimtardy.com   To purchase the iBook, visit https://itunes.apple.com/us/book/so-sorry-im-tardy/id872666695?mt=11

ALL THE WORLD’S A STAGE FOR FOLK FAN RUTH

Ruth Salter is going to great lengths – several thousand miles actually – to tune into the culture surrounding the numerous and varied folk festivals across Britain. Over the summer months she is travelling almost the entire length of the country – from Orkney to Devon – soaking up the atmosphere at a number of events and finding out how they fit into each community. This week she is one of the many volunteers at the award-winning Hebridean Celtic Festival in Stornoway which attracts about 16,000 music fans to the Outer Hebrides annually. Already Ruth, 20, from Balquhidder in Stirling, has visited the Orkney Folk Festival in May, worked as a volunteer steward at Beverley Folk Festival in East Yorkshire last month and last week was helping at the Ely Folk Festival in Cambridgeshire. After HebCelt she has volunteered to work at the Shrewsbury Folk Festival in Shropshire and at the Sidmouth Folk Week in East Devon during August. In all she has calculated she will have travelled about 4,000 miles attending the events. Ruth, who is studying Scottish literature at the University of Edinburgh, said: “I’m doing this firstly because I'm a die-hard folkie and it's a convenient way to indulge that passion. “However, I'm also interested in how modern folk culture manifests itself; how people celebrate a folk heritage, or come together to enjoy folk events, or just the ways folk mixes with other influences and interests for a diverse audience. “Folk festivals tend to be the pinnacle of a folkie calendar in a lot of places with active folk groups, so visiting them seems a good way to see folk culture at its most vibrant. “The festivals have so far been really warm and inviting, but they've all had quite different senses of place, in terms of the artists they showcase and the people I've met at them. And the dancing has differed; there not really being much call for Morris Dancing on Orkney!” It is her first visit to HebCelt and she was eager to visit the event because of its strong connection to the Gaelic language and culture. “HebCelt has a unique place in the festivals I'm volunteering at because it's the only one really concerned with Gaelic culture”, she said. “Being on Lewis puts it in the heart of a traditionally Gaelic community and I'm excited to see in what ways that influences the festival.” She has travelled between events by train, car and ferry: “I’ve managed to cadge a fair few lifts off other visitors, which seems a reflection of the general friendliness of folkies everywhere. “Volunteering means I can keep costs down, but I am surviving on a diet of bagels and cereal bars for expense reasons.” Ruth is among a 150-strong army of volunteers working this week at HebCelt which is headlined by Big Country, Levellers and Donnie Munro.  Rachel Sermanni, Cara Dillon, Duncan Chisholm, Willie Campbell and Larkin Poe will also be among nearly 40 acts featuring over the four days.   The army of volunteers, 60 per cent of whom come from outside Lewis, arrive from all parts of the UK, across Europe, the US and Australia to provide vital free manpower at the festival. Last year the volunteers contributed over 3,500 man hours over the course of the festival and this number is expected to be overtaken this year. NOTES TO EDITORS This year HebCelt was selected as one of the top 10 UK summer festivals for the fourth year in succession by the influential music magazine Songlines. The 2013 event was the most successful in its history with ticket sales showing an increase of over 30 per cent on the previous year 2012. The 16,000-strong crowd – double the population of Stornoway - helped generate around £1 million for the local economy Last year HebCelt was also hailed as one of the greenest festivals in the world after being the only Scottish event to receive an Outstanding award from environmental campaign group A Greener Festival. In addition, it was shortlisted in the Greener Festival category in the UK Festival Awards and in the Best Independent Festival category in the AIM Independent Music Awards. In 2011 it was ranked Best Large Festival at the industry-sponsored Scottish Event Awards and it won Best Event of the Year award at the MG Alba Scots Trad Music Awards in 2004 and 2009.

Extraordinary general meeting of Agrokultura AB (publ)

Background and motivationThe board of directors has, in order to deliver the company’s shareholders’ expectations, committed to a strategy to proactively compare the value of the company as a going concern towards the value that an outside buyer is ready to pay for the shares, the assets or a combination of the two. More concretely, this entails realizing the previously announced cost reduction program, exploring strategic alternatives for the Ukrainian as well as the Russian business, sale of non-core assets, focusing on increasing crop yield and reinforcing the internal processes. In conjunction with the half-year report which will be published on 28 August 2014, a full statement will be made on the business, which will include an update on the cost reduction program and a progress report for the year’s harvest. Additionally, the company will report on the buyer interest relating to the Ukrainian operations in the light of recent political developments. As previously announced, Agrokultura AB (publ) has received information that the company’s largest shareholder has entered into an agreement regarding the off market sale of its entire holding to an undisclosed buyer at the price of SEK 3.75 per share. Although a significant premium to the current market price, it is significantly lower than the last reported book value of SEK 6.80 per share. The company has also received unconfirmed reports that the same buyer is currently looking to build up a significant ownership position through other off market transactions. Repeated attempts have made been during the past week to get in touch with the new owner in order to understand the new buyer’s potential intentions. These attempts, to date, have been inconclusive. In the light of the above, the board of directors of Agrokultura AB (publ) wishes to take measures to ensure equal treatment of all shareholders with the aim to give them the benefit of the company’s true value.Stockholm on 21 July 2014 For additional information, please contact:Investor Relations + 44 203 427 3983 or + 46 730 43 08 84

Salamander Energy plc Announces Agreement to Sell 40% Stake in Greater Bualuang Area

     21 July 2014  Salamander Energy plc("Salamander" or the "Group") Further to the Heads of Agreement announced on 5 June 2014, Salamander is pleased to announce that a definitive Share Sale and Purchase Agreement has now been signed with SONA Petroleum Berhard ("SONA") to dispose of an effective 40% working interest in the B8/38 concession containing the Bualuang oil field and the surrounding G4/50 concession, both located in the Gulf of Thailand (together the "Transaction"). Proposed Transaction Terms Under the terms of the Transaction: · SONA will pay a consideration of US$280 million in cash plus working capital adjustments based on the effective date of 1 January 2014. · Salamander will pay for the costs associated with the drilling of two exploration wells in the G4/50 concession, up to a cap of US$15 million · A contingent payment of up to US$15 million to be made by SONA to Salamander in the event of a commercial discovery in the G4/50 concession Mitsui Oil Exploration Co Ltd ("MOECO"), from whom Salamander acquired its 100% interest in G4/50, holds back-in rights to up to 50% of the concession while the licence is in its exploration phase. In the event that MOECO exercises its back-in rights, Salamander's and SONA's effective working interests will each be diluted in proportion to their ownership in G4/50 (being 60 / 40). The Transaction remains conditional, amongst other things, on approval by Salamander's shareholders and SONA receiving regulatory approval from the Securities Commission of Malaysia and approval by its shareholders. The consideration will be met by SONA via existing cash resources and financing arranged with BNP Paribas the final documentation of which is a condition to closing of the Transaction.  The Transaction is not subject to any other regulatory approvals. Transaction Rationale The Transaction is in line with the Group's stated strategy of active portfolio management to realise value from its assets over time. In particular the sale: · Demonstrates and crystallises the value created in the B8/38 concession since the Group increased its stake through acquiring an additional 40% interest in the acreage for $105 million in 2010. Since that time the Bualuang field has seen material reserves and production growth and generated significant free cash flow. · Reduces asset concentration risk within the Group's portfolio · Reduces the Group's balance sheet exposure to the next phase of capital expenditure associated with the Bualuang field development · Strengthens the balance sheet with the Group expected, subject to closing of the Transaction,  to retire between US$200 and US$250 million of gross debt · Provides sufficient cash to return US$50 million to shareholders, equivalent to approximately 11 pence per share. Asset Description The B8/38 concession is located in the Gulf of Thailand and contains the Bualuang oil field. The field was brought on-stream in 2008 and to date has produced over 17 million barrels of oil. It has two production platforms, Alpha and Bravo, and a Floating, Production, Storage & Offtake vessel ("FPSO") which processes and stores Bualuang crude and from which cargoes are offloaded on a regular basis. Gross daily production in 2014 is expected to average between 11,000 and 14,000 barrels of oil per day ("bopd"). The field is currently undergoing a phase of development drilling and infrastructure upgrade, with wells being drilled from the Bualuang Bravo Platform. The Bualuang FPSO is to be replaced with a Floating, Storage & Offtake vessel ("FSO") and the Bualuang crude will be processed using newly installed modules located on the Bravo platform. The FSO is currently in the field awaiting hook up, once the facilities upgrade is completed, it is expected to result in substantial savings in operating costs. Further exploitation of the field is anticipated through the design, construction and installation of a third platform, Charlie. This is currently at the conceptual design phase but is expected to be sanctioned later this year and will ultimately lead to the commercialisation of a proportion of the identified contingent resource in the field. Reserves and resources in the Bualuang oil field have been estimated as at 31 December 2013 by both Salamander management and RPS Energy, its independent reserve auditor as follows:      Proved Proved + Best Estimate Contingent Resources Reserves Probable ReservesSalamander (MMbo) 19.3 32.7 32.3ManagementRPS Energy (MMbo) 19.3 30.1 27.8 The G4/50 concession surrounds the B8/38 concession and Salamander has acquired 3D seismic over the acreage and mapped a large number of prospects and leads in the 10-100 MMbo size range. Environmental permits are currently being sought to cover 20 drilling locations in the G4/50 acreage. For the twelve months ended 31 December 2013, on an IFRS basis, Salamander Energy Bualuang Limited ("SEBG"), the Group's wholly-owned subsidiary which holds 60% interest in the B8/38 concession, and which is the subject of the proposed Transaction, generated revenues of approximately US$272 million and profit before taxation of US$103 million.  Gross assets of SEBG, as at 31 December 2013, were US$438 million. In connection with the proposed Transaction, and with effect from 1 January 2014, SEBG has agreed to transfer a 40% working interest in G4/50 to a subsidiary of Salamander. The value of the interest to be transferred was US$11.3 million as at 31 December 2013, reducing the gross assets, the subject of the proposed Transaction accordingly. Transaction Structure The proposed Transaction is to be effected via a share sale to SONA of an interest in SEBG which will result in SONA having an effective 40% working interest in both B8/38 and G4/50. The relationship between Salamander and SONA will be governed by a series of documents including a Shareholders Agreement, a Joint Operating Agreement and certain Management, Technical and Support Service Agreements. These Agreements will set out the respective rights and obligations of the two shareholders of SEBG, which will be governed by its own Board, chaired by Salamander. Following the Transaction, Salamander Energy (Bualuang) Limited will continue to operate the B8/38 concession. Salamander will retain an effective 60% interest in both the B8/38 and G4/50 concessions through its residual holding in SEBG and through Salamander Energy (E&P) Limited, a second, wholly-owned subsidiary which holds a direct 40% interest in the B8/38 concession. General Meeting and Shareholder Circular Completion of the Transaction is conditional upon, amongst other things, Salamander shareholders' providing approval for the proposed Transaction, as due to its size, it constitutes a Class 1 Disposal under the Listing Rules. A circular setting out further details of the Transaction, together with the notice to convene the general meeting and the form of proxy for use at the general meeting, will be posted to Salamander shareholders in due course. The resolution will be proposed as an ordinary resolution that will be passed if a simple majority of the votes cast at the meeting are in favour of the resolution. Completion of the Transaction is expected to occur during the fourth quarter of 2014. Clifford Chance acted as Legal Adviser to Salamander on the Transaction. James Menzies, CEO of Salamander, commented: "The transaction announced today, represents excellent value for shareholders. Since increasing our stake in the field in 2010, Bualuang has produced over 10 million barrels of oil and generated significant cash flow. This deal demonstrates that during that time, Salamander has more than doubled the value of the field under its stewardship against a flat commodity price. Partially crystallising that value now allows us to significantly strengthen the balance sheet and return capital to shareholders while retaining a majority interest in, and operatorship of the field. Meanwhile, we are looking forward to both the continued development of the field and the exploration of the G4/50 concession together with our new partner."

Halfords helps 12,000 pupils get on their bikes

HALFORDS helped 12,000 pupils from 455 schools all over the country skill up and learn more about cycling safety and maintenance, at free workshops held in June. Held in schools by Halfords colleagues, the free workshop is the ideal way for school children to learn all about cycling safety and how to keep their bike in tiptop condition. The sessions also aim to help children develop their confidence and independence when cycling. Halfords’ Community and CSR Manager Emma Thomas said “We’re so proud that, since the Halfords workshops began in June, we’ve taught 12,000 school children about bike maintenance and safety, a key part of kids becoming confident on their bikes. Our research shows 82% of parents want cycling safety added to the National Curriculum – and the fact that thousands of children have benefited from the Gear Up! bike workshops shows how important cycling education is.” Recent research from Halfords has uncovered that 82% of the nation would like to see Bikeability become part of the National Curriculum and 32% of parents would like schools to teach cycle safety. Halfords’ Gear Up! bike workshops teach kids about bike maintenance and safety and help them develop key life skills including teamwork and problem-solving as well as promoting exercise in an engaging way.  In addition, to date 30,000 kids have attended Halfords Kids’ Bike Clubs that run through the summer holidays (www.halfords.com/bikeclub). Pupils that took part in the June workshop were given fun downloadable activities to help them learn all about bikes as well as a certificate upon completion.  The activities included a competition giving pupils the chance to win a bike of their choice as well as free cycle helmets for the whole class.  Teachers can register an interest in future school bike workshops by emailing emma.thomas@halfords.co.uk. -ENDS-

Our adjusted operating profit reached SEK 467 million and our operating margin was 9%. Overall, I am pleased with our financial performance. The market place has been quite good with solid demand and stable prices within all business areas. Business area Packaging Paper has managed to keep the prices stable during the quarter in spite of increased capacity on the market, and has increased prices on new orders within the sack segments thanks to a seasonally strong demand. Within business area Consumer Board we have launched the next generation of Cartonboard products on the market, which has been very well received by customers. Business area Containerboard has delivered a stable result for the second quarter but is beginning to feel a real pressure from the increased capacity on the market. We continue with our ambition “Challenging conventional packaging for a sustainable future” with the aim of increasing the level of innovation and leadership. During the quarter we have received confirmation in several areas that we are right on target with our mission. Several countries are putting regulations in place for reducing the use of plastics in packaging. We offer sustainable alternatives to several plastic applications, and sustainability is our top priority. We have received recognition from both EcoVadis and "oekom research", meaning that the company is acknowledged for its sustainability work.

The integration work has progressed as planned and as already communicated, the realisation of synergies is happening faster than first planned. All employees have done a fantastic work all across the company, in numerous different projects that constitutes the integration program. However, the pace of integration in combination with synergy-related incentives will increase the non-recurring costs for realising the synergies with approximately SEK 25 million for the year.

Redundancy affects 21 positions within the administrative staff of the Swedish subsidiaries. Negotiations with the relevant labor unions regarding the concerned employees will continue. The Company will revert with the outcome of these negotiations and any possible further changes in the executive management team. “I’m convinced that this is the right way forward. It is a result of the current situation in the iron ore market and the challenges we have in front of us. Moving our team closer to the mine is natural at this stage and one of the steps taken in order to optimize our operations“, commented CEO, Johan Balck. Furthermore, Willy Sundling who most recently held the position as Vice President of Environment, Health and Safety will leave the Company. Willy Sundling has held several positions within Northland and will be available for the Company for some time.

Carrier Transicold’s NaturaLINE™ Trial Wins Motor Transport’s Innovation Award

Motor Transport honoured Carrier Transicold (http://www.transicold.carrier.com/) with its prestigious Innovation Award for a joint project with Sainsbury’s to trial the world’s first temperature-controlled trailer using the natural refrigerant carbon dioxide (CO₂). Carrier Transicold, which operates in the UK as Carrier Transicold (UK) Ltd., helps improve global transport and shipping temperature control with a complete line of equipment for refrigerated trucks, trailers and containers, and is a part of UTC Building & Industrial Systems, a unit of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX). Labelled as “a potential game changer” by the Motor Transport judging panel, the two-year project launched in August 2013 uses a modified version of Carrier Transicold’s NaturaLINE™ refrigeration system, which was initially developed for ocean container shipping. The 10.8-metre, insulated, urban distribution trailer delivers frozen produce to stores using NaturaLINE’s non-ozone depleting CO₂ refrigerant, which has a Global Warming Potential (GWP) of one. In contrast, most temperature-controlled systems on commercial vehicles use conventional refrigerants such as R-404A (a fluorinated gas), with a GWP of 3,920. GWP is the measurement used to show the equivalent kilograms of CO₂. The GWP of CO₂ is lower than other natural refrigerants, such as propane, so even in the event of a leak, the use of CO₂ adds no new environmental risk. “Congratulations to Sainsbury’s for taking a bold step forward to reduce its carbon footprint by successfully demonstrating the application of the NaturaLINE CO₂ refrigeration system for road use,” said David Appel, president, Carrier Transicold & Refrigeration Systems. “The trial’s success is great news for Sainsbury’s and the environment.” The award was received at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London by Victor Calvo, managing director, Carrier Transicold EMEA; Justin Grace, managing director, Carrier Transicold northern Europe; and Nick Davies, head of transport operations, Sainsbury’s. “We’re delighted Carrier's natural leadership in environmental technologies has been recognised with this award,” Grace said. “The NaturaLINE unit trial marks one of the most significant innovations in temperature-controlled road transport for more than a decade.” For further press information on the NaturaLINE trial, please visit the Carrier Transicold UK online newsroom (http://news.cision.com/carrier-transicold/r/sainsbury-s-trials-world-s-first-naturally-refrigerated-trailer,c9541645).

REUNION SUCCESS FOR ST MARGARET’S

Months of detective work came to fruition for Michele Olie when eight of the original team who undertook a World Challenge expedition to Northern India in the summer of 1994 travelled from far and wide to reunite at the Independent School for Girls 20 years later. “My son is heading off on expedition to South Africa this summer and it dawned on me that it is now 20 years since we went off to India,” explained Michele, who was an art teacher at the school at the time and now lives in Somerset. “I had a trawl about on the internet and eventually managed to track down all the girls who’d travelled apart from our Expedition Leader Ian Anderson, who was no longer on World Challenge’s database. “All the girls seemed keen on a reunion so I contacted St Margaret’s who were happy to host the event then I kept everyone abreast of developments through a Facebook group page.” The eight who attended were Michele, Nicola and  Emma Moores (both Lincolnshire), Smita and Monica Nath (London), Roz Tadman (Gloucestershire), Nicola Earle (London) with Helen Maunder-Taylor travelling from Australia, as she was able to combine the trip with her grandmother’s 100thbirthday celebrations! “It was lovely to see them all again – some of us have stayed in touch more than others over the years but we had a great time and even managed to watch a DVD containing our expedition footage and shared lots of photos, which helped bring the memories flooding back,” she added. Michele’s legacy has lived on with her two children, Alexander and Matthew, both signed up to overseas schools expeditions whilst she firmly believes that her World Challenge experience gave her the necessary life experience and valuable transferable skills needed for later life. “My friends are always astonished at what I can pull out of my handbag! I’m never without a penknife or a first aid kit,” she said. “Also the Far From Help Medical Course I undertook prior to the expedition has proved extremely valuable as a mother of two very active boys and it also helped when my husband collapsed unexpectedly. “Taking on an expedition is a fantastic way for young people to push themselves outside of their comfort zone, both physically and mentally, whilst at the same time experiencing international cultures and forging life-long friendships.” For more information on World Challenge visit www.world-challenge.co.uk

ChassisCab Expands into Cambridge

ChassisCab – the Suffolk, North Essex and Cambridgeshire-based family-owned DAF dealership  – has acquired the Marshall DAF Truck franchise for Cambridge maintaining the dealership’s status as the only HGV commercial franchise located within Cambridge.  With bases in Ipswich, Bury St Edmunds and Isleham – ChassisCab has now added the facility at 699 Newmarket Road, Cambridge to its core group of truck sales and service locations to expand its activities as the main DAF Truck franchise holder for East Anglia.  It will continue to offer DAF Truck Sales (New and Used), Truck Servicing and Repair, the supply of DAF and TRP Parts, Commercial Vehicle Paint and Body Shop, Chassis Straightening, Tachograph and HGV MOT testing services. All 35 staff have been transferred to the newly relaunched ChassisCab dealership which now gives a combined trading experience of over 80 years within the commercial vehicle sector in East Anglia. Being situated just off Junction 34 of the A14, means it is ideally positioned to service businesses clustered around the A14 including, the M11 and M25.  The dealership covers an area from Thrapston in the west to Felixstowe on the East coast – the UKs largest container port and most direct link to mainland Europe.  The new dealership will engage with all companies from small owner-managed businesses to large national fleet operations.  ChassisCab now employs over 145 members of staff between its four separate locations. Speaking about the acquisition of the franchise Robert Baxter, Dealer Principal, at ChassisCab, said: ‘We are extremely proud that ChassisCab is now operating in            the city of Cambridge.  We have been working with truck businesses in Cambridgeshire since 2006 when we acquired a DAF Trucks site in Isleham but this move takes us into the mainstream business community where business is encouragingly buoyant .’ ‘The transfer of the business has been seamless because there is almost complete synergy between the two dealerships.  Our customers want quality trucks like the DAF Euro 6 LF, CF and XF that are high-performing, image-conscious and emissions-friendly.  We supply the optimum trucks for the job and that’s what keeps our customers where they want to be – at the top of their game. ‘ ‘We are looking forward to developing new business in and around Cambridge, helping local, national and international companies to prosper and grow.’ DAF Trucks further strengthened its position within the European truck market last year (2013) – a market share of 16.2% was achieved, a record in the 85 year history of the company. ChassisCab is a family owned business that has been the main DAF dealer for Suffolk since the early 1990s and a DAF Service Dealer for Cambridgeshire since 2006.  ChassisCab was formed in 1982 by David Ruffles who set up a body repair business in Bury St Edmunds.  It has grown to become one of the premier dealers for DAF and a leading supplier of trucks in the region.  

The train now departing at Platform 1 is the 10 o'clock to Storyland!

Normally, passengers on the North Yorkshire Moors Railway will board a train at Pickering and expect to head up the line to Grosmont or Whitby, but on six special trains this summer, the destinations will be fairyland, the pirate-infested Caribbean or even the world’s most famous magical village, Hogsmead, with the launch of weekly story trains! Each Friday, from 25 July until 29 August, the 10.00am train from Pickering will be crewed by characters more often seen in fiction.  Costumed characters from Make A Wish Entertainment will be keeping families amused as the train journeys between Pickering Station and Goathland, with stops along the way for storytelling, games and a little bit of mayhem! “Our story trains combine the best in on-rail entertainment from a hilarious cast of characters – this summer, we’ve got a charm of fairies, a band of pirates, and then some students of witchcraft and wizardry from Hogwarts – plus a very large, hairy member of the teaching staff giving advice on caring for dragons and other mystical beasts,” says marketing manager, Danielle Ramsey.  “We hope that many of our passengers will join the crew by arriving in costume – and we’ll be giving prizes away for the best each week!” Each story train departs from Pickering at 10.00am on Fridays, with passengers meeting characters both on the platform and on the train itself.  Travellers are entertained along the route to Goathland, where everyone disembarks for a walk into the village itself at 10.50am.  Following some fun and games, and a chance to enjoy a picnic lunch or the delicious food from the local tavern, passengers return to the train at 12.50pm for the return journey to Levisham.  At Levisham Station, there follows more fun and mayhem, before returning to Pickering for 2.40pm. The Fairy Story Train runs on 25 July and 15 August, whilst Pirates will be staging their on-board mutiny on 1 and 22 August.  The Hogwarts story train departs from Pickering’s Platform 1 ¾ on Friday 8 and 29 August.

Once again we have set a record for profitability, this time for the second quarter. Never before has Enea had a better margin or greater earnings per share in the second quarter of a year. This is the fifth consecutive quarter with an improved operating profit year over year. It is also encouraging that we during the second quarter achieved a double digit revenue growth for our Global Services operation over the same period last year. This is the third quarter of sequential revenue growth, but it is the first time in six quarters we again achieve revenue growth year over year. We have won a range of major contracts in this line of business over the past few quarters, in both the US and Europe, which are now in full delivery mode. Our aim is to continue expanding this business, and we think that we are well positioned in our niche. Revenue from our software business remained stable throughout the first six months of the year, with a small increase in the first quarter and a corresponding decrease in the second quarter compared with the same periods last year. Our growth in this field is largely dependent on growth in royalty revenues from our major customers. We saw no major increase in these revenues during the second quarter due to weaker sales than anticipated among some of our major customers in the first quarter. However, our software business continues to develop with good gross margins and is making a strong contribution to the company’s overall operating profit. Our market position has also continued to develop well, as have ongoing discussions on new contracts, and we enter the second half year cautiously optimistic. We are the leading independent supplier of built-in operating system solutions in a world in which our competitors are becoming ever more vertically integrated and hence linked directly with specific kinds of hardware. We are continuing to focus on the ARM architecture, but we also benefit from our freedom as an independent software supplier. One specific example of this is the release of Enea Linux which took place during the quarter, as Enea Linux 4.0 supports hardware from a number of different suppliers, based on ARM, PowerPC and the x86 architecture. We are continuing to invest heavily in product development in order to continue improving our competitiveness. 22.6 percent of our revenues in the second quarter was reinvested in R&D, and we released a number of new products over the period. The second quarter was special as we launched new versions of all our major products – OSE5, Enea Linux and Element – simultaneously during one and the same quarter. We also finalized some completely new solutions, such as the OSE Compatibility Platform, which allows users to integrate OSE applications and Linux applications within a single system. This platform will be a key component for developing our business with existing customers and also enhancing our Linux range at the same time. To further strengthen our presence in the world of Linux, we also announced a strategic cooperation with the Linux Foundation during the quarter. As one of four selected global partners, we will be providing the Linux Foundation’s portfolio of training in the Embedded Linux field. The changes made to the sales and marketing organization in the US, which were implemented at the start of the second quarter, have developed well. We have also recruited a new manager for the Asian sales organization, and this person will start at the end of the third quarter. We will also be increasing our sales resources on the European market in the third quarter. We will continue to gradually strengthen our sales and marketing organization with the ambition to increase the growth rates long term, but without creating a negative impact on our operating margins short term. We continue our efforts to improve growth and high profitability. Our aim is to consolidate a 20 percent operating margin and deliver revenue growth year over year. We continue to be prepared for ongoing soft demand, but maintain our forecast for the year. Our estimate for the full year 2014 is that earnings per share will be improved compared with the previous year.” Press and analyst meeting Press and financial analysts are invited to a press and analyst meeting where Anders Lidbeck, President and CEO, will present and comment on the report.

The Christie Hospital joins Elekta and Philips research consortium to develop MRI-guided radiation therapy system for cancer treatment

MANCHESTER, England, July 22, 2014 – Elekta (NSE:EKTAb) and Royal Philips (NYSE:PHG, AEX:PHIA) announced today that The Christie NHS Foundation Trust (Manchester, UK), a specialist cancer center, will join a consortium whose mission is to develop the clinical value of an integrated magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) guided radiation therapy system. Such a system would, in principle, improve the practice of radiotherapy via real-time visualization of cancer targets. “The Christie was an essential participant in the project 14 years ago that laid the foundations of the use of cone beam computed tomography [CBCT] at the time of treatment to improve radiotherapy delivery,” says Niklas Savander, Elekta President and CEO. “It has a dedicated team of researchers in medical physics, radiotherapy and clinical oncology and MR imaging that is committed to the most accurate and individualized delivery of radiation therapy. The Christie has the perfect blend of experience and expertise to further help the consortium make MRI-guided radiation therapy a reality.” The Christie is the seventh member to join the research consortium that assesses the novel technology, which brings together state-of-the-art radiation therapy and MRI in a single system. The consortium also includes the University Medical Center Utrecht (Utrecht, the Netherlands), The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center (Houston, Texas), The Netherlands Cancer Institute-Antoni van Leeuwenhoek Hospital (Amsterdam, the Netherlands), Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre (Toronto, Ontario), The Froedtert & Medical College of Wisconsin Cancer Center (Milwaukee, Wisconsin) and The Institute of Cancer Research, working with its clinical partner The Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust (London, England). “We are very excited to be a part of an international consortium of truly exceptional centers that are striving as we are to develop technological innovations to benefit patients,” says Dr. Ananya Choudhury, Consultant and Honorary Senior Clinical Lecturer, Clinical Oncology at The Christie. “Unlike any imaging modality now in use in combination with radiotherapy, MRI can provide highly detailed images of the tumor and surrounding normal tissues. Moreover, MRI will permit physicians to non-invasively visualize and track the target during beam delivery – real-time imaging – which will further improve treatment accuracy.” The Christie joined the recent research consortium meeting at Utrecht, where the clinical indications that would benefit the most from the use of MRI-guided radiation therapy were discussed. These targets are typically going to be in anatomy that changes its position and shape either from day to day or during the treatment. The consortium anticipates that the use of MRI imaging at the time of treatment will result in a considerable increase in the accuracy of the placement of the dose, reducing the need for large safety margins around the tumor target. “When we first started this journey with Elekta and the University Medical Center Utrecht more than a decade ago, we already had a clear vision, yet we could only dream of today’s MRI imaging performance,” says Gene Saragnese, CEO Imaging Systems at Philips Healthcare. “Since then we have come a long way and I am convinced that with the current state of the technology and the growing consortium of leaders in radiation therapy delivery, we have the prerequisites to make the integrated MRI-guided radiation therapy technology a game changer in cancer care.” The MRI-guided radiation therapy system is a works in progress and not available for sale or distribution. # # # For further information, please contact:Gert van Santen, Group Vice President Corporate Communications, Elekta ABTel: +31 653 561 242, e-mail: gert.vansanten@elekta.comTime zone: CET: Central European Time Johan Andersson, Director, Investor Relations, Elekta ABTel: +46 702 100 451, e-mail: johan.andersson@elekta.comTime zone: CET: Central European Time Steve Klink, Philips Group CommunicationsTel: +31 6 10888824, e-mail: steve.klink@philips.comTime zone: CET: Central European Time The above information is such that Elekta AB (publ) shall make public in accordance with the Securities Market Act and/or the Financial Instruments Trading Act.

Interim report April - June 2014

"Record profit despite timid growth" “Trelleborg continued to improve earnings. Both operating profit and the operating margin are the highest levels ever for the Group for a single quarter. The Group also reported a stable cash flow. “Net sales rose 2 percent while organic sales declined 1 percent. Sales performance was favorable in all geographic markets except for Europe. The negative trend in Europe was primarily due to a weaker OEM market for agricultural tires, delays of deliveries of projects and ongoing repositioning to more value-creating niches in certain product segments. “We maintained our focus on value creation and generating growth via organic initiatives and bolt-on acquisitions. During the quarter, we decided on an investment in a production facility for agricultural tires in the U.S., which will provide us with local presence in North America and a global position in the market. Furthermore, Trelleborg acquired a company in Turkey, which consolidates our leading market position in industrial hoses. “As yet, we have not received any indication of a general improvement in the demand situation, and we believe that third-quarter demand for the Group as a whole will be on par with the second quarter of the year. We are continuing to carefully monitor the economic developments and are maintaining high preparedness to address fluctuating market conditions,”says Peter Nilsson, President and CEO. Second quarterNet sales for the second quarter of 2014 increased by 2 percent (0) and totaled SEK 5,725 M (5,628). Organic sales declined by 1 percent (increase: 2). Effects of structural changes contributed 0 percent (pos: 4) while the effects of exchange-rate movements were a positive 3 percent (neg: 6). Operating profit, excluding the participation in TrelleborgVibracoustic and items affecting comparability, rose by 11 percent to SEK 802 M (723), equivalent to an operating margin of 14.0 percent (12.8), the Group’s highest ever for a single quarter. Items affecting comparability amounted to an expense of SEK 99 M (expense: 204), which was fully attributable to previously announced restructuring programs. The year-earlier period included an expense of SEK 155 M associated with process and dispute costs. Operating profit in the quarter for TrelleborgVibracoustic, excluding items affecting comparability, rose 26 percent to EUR 39 M (31). This corresponded to an operating margin of 8.9 percent (6.9), the highest to date for the company for a single quarter. Trelleborg’s participation in TrelleborgVibracoustic amounted to SEK 42 M before tax (97). The participation includes items affecting comparability in the negative amount of SEK 126 M (neg: 11) that were mainly attributable to the previously communicated restructuring projects. Earnings per share rose 38 percent to SEK 1.95 (1.41). Operating cash flow amounted to SEK 539 M (531). Market outlook for the third quarter of 2014Demand is expected to be on a par with the second quarter of 2014, adjusted for seasonal variations.   For further information, please contact:Media: Vice President Media Relations Karin Larsson, +46 (0)410 67015, +46 (0)733 747015, karin.larsson@trelleborg.comInvestors/analysts: Vice President IR Christofer Sjögren, +46 (0)410 67068, +46 (0)708 665140, christofer.sjogren@trelleborg.com This is information of the type that Trelleborg AB (publ) is obligated to disclose in accordance with the Swedish Securities Exchange and Clearing Operations Act and/or the Financial Instruments Trading Act.

Saab completes acquisition of TKMS AB (Kockums)

The required decisions and approvals for Saab's acquisition of Thyssen Krupp Marine Systems AB (TKMS AB) have now been granted. The company will become a business unit within Saab's business area Security and Defence Solutions. The business unit is named Saab Kockums. Saab expects that operations will continue to be carried out primarily in Malmö, Karlskrona and Muskö. In June, Saab and FMV signed a Letter of Intent regarding the Swedish armed forces’ underwater capabilities. With the acquisition of TKMS AB, Saab, together with the Swedish authority, is able to ensure access to the existing knowledge and intellectual properties (IPR) necessary for continued development, production and maintenance in the underwater sector for both the Swedish and the international markets. "The acquisition is in line with our strategy to expand our offering and strengthen Saab's position in the market for naval systems. Kockums has a unique offering and a strong local presence in Sweden concerning submarines and warships. The acquisition makes us a complete supplier of naval military systems. We also see good potential to expand the company's current market position through opportunities in the export market," says Håkan Buskhe, President and CEO of Saab."We are now beginning the integration of Kockums with Saab, focusing on reaching full capacity and we are starting work immediately with the orders placed by Sweden as well as deliveries to other existing customers. This will be followed by efforts to increase operational efficiency and profitability. This is key in order to be globally competitive in the long term. There are also good synergies to achieve with Saab's current naval operations," says Gunilla Fransson, head of Saab’s business area Security and Defence Solutions. TKMS AB designs, builds and maintains naval systems such as submarines and surface vessels. Other successful products include the air-independent Stirling propulsion system, submarine rescue vehicles and mine countermeasures systems. The company has approximately 850 employees and supplies systems and products to the navies of Sweden, Australia and Singapore. During the financial year 2012/2013, TKMS AB reported sales of approximately SEK 1.7 billion (2011/2012: SEK 1.9 billion) and income from operations of approximately MSEK 34 (2011/2012: MSEK 13). The cost of the acquisition, which is financed by existing funds, amounted to MSEK 340. The impact of the transaction on Saab's results for 2014 is not considered to be significant.

History Repeats Itself as 1916 Greengrocers Brought to Life

The original two up two down building, once occupying 39 Lower Lichfield Street in Willenhall has long since been demolished, but a brick-by-original-brick replica has been at Black Country Living Museum for over 20 years. After extensive research by the Museum’s curators it was discovered that the home actually served as a greengrocers and was run and lived in by a Gertrude and William Adey and their two children from 1916 until at least 1932. A public appeal for more information culminated in a very surprising call for Gertrude’s great grandson Andrew Adey, who had no knowledge of the building at the museum or its restoration into a 1916 greengrocer shop. “I’ve been researching my family tree on and off for thirty or so years,” comments Andrew, now living in Wolverhampton and working as a dentist, “to learn that theBlack CountryLivingMuseumis going to recreate a part of it is very exciting.” The shop will be restored to its original state as of 1916, during the midst of World War One. A costumed character will be teaching visitors about the life of Gertrude Adey while her husband was away at war. Only fruit and vegetables that were available during this period of history, and in season, will be sold. To be truly historically accurate, the museum will look at using leftovers to make pickles, preserves and chutneys which visitors will be able to purchase. Mark Reeves, General Manager for Food & Drink comments, “for the Museum this is an opportunity to do something really special – not only will we be selling seasonal, locally-sourced fruit and vegetables to visitors, but the shop will also be supplying the multiple cafes and eateries across the site. This is a waste-not-want-not exercise, just like how it would have been in 1916.”  The shop officially opens on Saturday 26 July.

i-Bell Achieves £30K Kickstarter Campaign Fundraising Goal

The new generation electronic doorbell, i-Bell has successfully reached its £30,000 kickstarter goal (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/729057054/i-bell) just 12 days after launching the crowdfunding campaign. In addition to achieving the funding target, the latest addition to the home automation market received huge levels of support and engagement, with backers reacting enthusiastically to the innovative technology and useful concept. Since launching less than two weeks ago, the campaign has secured pledges from over 200 eager supporters. Keen to back the phenomenal potential of the new product, backers have not only paid for pre-ordersbut also helped to spread the work by broadcasting the campaign via various social networking platforms, including Facebook and LinkedIn. Conceived as a useful solution to an everyday problem, i-Bell is a Wi-Fi enabled doorbell camera system that syncs the front door with smart phones, laptops and tablets. This means that home owners can see who is at their front door whether they are home or away thanks. The app makes the inconvenience of staying at home all day to wait for packages to be delivered a thing of the past while unscheduled guests can always be greeted thanks to the camera system that sits above the bell. Once installed the i-Bell gives users a bird’s eye view of whoever is at their front door through their phone, whether they are at work, on holiday or simply in the back garden. Robin Menen, i-Bell CFO, says, “An important part of Kickstarter is not just to achieve the funding target but to win the support of the communityand to push your funding beyond its goal. We’re delighted that our campaign really caught the imagination and in less than two weeks surpassed the £30,000 goal. It will be a fantastic achievement if by the end of our campaign on 7thAugust we can double our target” “I think the secret to the i-Bell success on Kickstarter is that is offers a ‘why didn’t i think of that’ solution to a very 21stcentury phenomenon. We all lead very busy lives that constantly take us away from home, and yet we are required to stay at home when we expect deliveries or in the event that family or friends may decide to pop over. The i-Bell is a way for us all to save time, enabling us to screen for potential unwanted visitors so that our time spent at home, perhaps running a relaxing bath or barbequing with the family, can be enjoyed without interruption. We didn’t want people to feel like slaves in their own home, worrying about missing the door bell or being concerned about opening the door to strangers. It gives control back to the home owner.” The first product of its kind in the UK, the i-Bell is compatible with Android, Apple, Windows and Blackberry so anyone with a Smartphone has access to the product. The combination of Wi-Fi and a HD camera enables homeowners to see and hear what’s going on at their front door from their phone.

VISITORS HELP HEBCELT TO ANOTHER SUCCESS

Visitors from nearly 30 countries helped make this year’s Hebridean Celtic Festival one of its most successful and provided a massive economic boost to the islands. The award-winning event was held from 16-19 July in Stornoway with Big Country, Levellers and Donnie Munro headlining its biggest ever programme of 40 acts. A huge influx of music fans from overseas made up half the estimated 14,000-strong audience that attended shows in the main arena in the grounds of Lews Castle, An Lanntair arts centre in the town centre and other venues in rural areas. The figure is close to last year’s record-breaking attendance - which was the best in the event’s 19 year history - and almost 17 per cent up on 2012. Organisers are already planning next year’s landmark 20th event which will be held from 15-18 July 2015. HebCelt director Caroline Maclennan said: “This year’s festival was another resounding success and the feedback we have received from visitors and local people has been tremendous. “We are delighted with the audience numbers, bearing in mind the economy is still very difficult. Almost half – 49 per cent – come from outside the Hebrides to take in the festival and that is hugely positive for local businesses. “Festival-goers also travel throughout the islands so the effect is felt across a wide area. “It’s really encouraging that the festival still attracts such a large and loyal following and we are excited about next year’s event which will be extra special as we reach the 20 years milestone.” Music fans travelled by car, ferry and plane from throughout the UK and across Europe as well from the Middle East, Australia, New Zealand, South America, China, Canada, the US, and Africa to attend HebCelt. Over 70 per cent were repeat visitors, demonstrating the loyal following it has amongst both local and visiting fans. Its popularity with fans of all ages was also shown by the broadly even split across six age groups – under 16s, 16-24 year-olds, 25-34, 35-44, 45-54 and over 55– at an average of 16.5 per cent each. Demand for accommodation this year led to an appeal being made three months ahead of the event.to help house visitors. Alastair Lockett, VisitScotland’s visitor services team leader, Outer Hebrides, said: “Yet again, HebCelt proves to be a great incentive for visitors from all over the world to come to the Outer Hebrides, especially in the Year of Homecoming Scotland 2014. “The weather was favourable, with campers enjoying warm sunshine for most of the festival and the friendly atmosphere attracted many families to the event and entertainment in the town centre. “We are also seeing many more festival-goers extending their stay and enjoying some of the great attractions the islands have to offer.” Emma Campbell-Macleod, owner of The Good Food Boutique in Stornoway’s Cromwell Street, was one of the businesses that benefited during HebCelt week. “We were very busy with both local people and visitors all week. I estimate that business was up about 20 per cent on the previous week and just over 10 per cent on last year.   “Everyone benefits from the festival, not just businesses. A lot of people said how busy the town was, with lots of tourists around. There was a real buzz about the place and it makes everyone feel more positive.” Kenny MacIver, a partner in Stornoway Taxi Service, said he drove people all over Lewis and as far away as the south of Harris: “We were extremely busy the whole week. Even when putting on extra cars to cope with demand we were still stretched. “Outside Christmas and New Year, HebCelt week is the busiest time of the year for us. The festival gives a real boost to the whole place and everyone gets something from it because it caters for all age groups.” The 19th HebCelt also featured performances by Cara Dillon, Rachel Sermanni, Duncan Chisholm, Cajun band Magnolia Sisters, from Louisiana, Larkin Poe, from Atlanta, and Canadian outfit Gordie MacKeeman and His Rhythm Boys. NOTES TO EDITORS This year HebCelt was selected as one of the top 10 UK summer festivals for the fourth year in succession by influential publication Songlines. It was also hailed as one of the greenest festivals in the world after being the only Scottish event to receive an Outstanding award from environmental campaign group A Greener Festival. In addition, it was shortlisted in the Greener Festival category in the UK Festival Awards and in the Best Independent Festival category in the AIM Independent Music Awards. In 2011 it was ranked Best Large Festival at the industry-sponsored Scottish Event Awards and it won Best Event of the Year award at the MG Alba Scots Trad Music Awards in 2004 and 2009.

Elekta strengthens its position in Turkey with acquisition of Mesi Medikal

Around 100,000 Turkish patients are estimated to need radiotherapy each year - a figure expected to reach approximately 170,000 by 2023*. Elekta will increase its commitment to this high-growth market by establishing an office in the country, staffed by Mesi Medikal’s current employees. “With only about two linear accelerators per million people in Turkey, we see strong growth opportunities,” says Niklas Savander, President and CEO of Elekta. “Elekta projects that almost 380 linear accelerators will be required by 2023, compared to today’s 210 units. The best way to capture this growth is to develop the relationship we have had with Mesi Medikal since 1997.” In addition to linear accelerators, Mesi Medikal has also been Elekta’s distributor for software and brachytherapy solutions. The acquisition of Mesi Medikal is expected to add approximately 0.3% to Elekta’s revenues on an annual basis. The transaction is expected to be EPS accretive on an annual basis.

DIO awards estates contracts valued at £958 million

The Defence Infrastructure Organisation (DIO) has announced that it has awarded contracts valued at £958 million for the Next Generation Estate Contracts (NGEC) Regional Prime Contracts Central and South West and South East England. DIO has awarded five-year contracts to CarillionAmey Ltd: · Regional Prime Central valued at £435 million · Regional Prime South West valued at £265 million · Regional Prime South East valued at £258 million The three contracts have the option to be extended up to an additional five years. The contracts provide planned and reactive maintenance including grounds maintenance, a 24/7 helpdesk for estate-users and have capability to deliver additional professional services, low value capital works and capital projects up to a value of £3.93 million. The contracts ensure sites continue to be kept safe, legal and operational at all times. The new South West and South East Regional Prime contracts replace the current Regional Prime contracts that were let in 2003 and 2005. The new Central Regional Prime contract replaces two existing Regional Prime contracts that cover Central England andEastern England. The award of the latest three contracts represents another major milestone in the NGEC programme, following the £1.1 billion award of the National Housing Prime National Training Estate Prime and Scotland and Northern Ireland Prime Contracts on 12 May 14. These first three contracts were also awarded for five years, with the option to be extended up to an additional five years. Acting Chief Executive DIO, Mark Hutchinson said: ”I am delighted that DIO has reached this important milestone in transforming the way it works. These new contracts will help DIO provide modern and effective infrastructure services to support Defence capabilities and individual Service personnel in a timely and cost-effective way.” Over the last 10 years, DIO has rationalised the number of contracts it manages to deliver this service from over 250 down to six NGEC Prime contracts now. NGEC Prime contracts provide a common framework for contract management across the whole UK Defence estate. They are designed to deliver value for money for Defence and the taxpayer through a coherent set of contracts where prices for Core Services have been agreed in advance with the contractor, further improving financial certainty. Matt Foley, DIO Head of Future Procurement said: “DIO’s priority is to support our Armed Forces by providing the places they need to live, work, train and deploy on operations. Prime contracts provide a comprehensive contract framework and have been developed following an in-depth review of the Defence estate and requirements of our estate users. “They have also been designed to not only provide operational capability at all times and are flexible enough to adapt to the future requirements of the Defence frontline; allowing for service requirements to be changed in a timely and cost effective way. “Our new Prime contractors have faced a rigorous procurement and evaluation process. I am confident that the companies selected will meet the high standards required on the Defence estate and I look forward to working closely with them.” All three Regional Primes are due to be in service by February 2015.

E-cigarette Users Discover An Easier Way To Stop Smoking!

Allen Carr’s Easyway To Stop Smoking Clinics have experienced an influx of e-cigarette users and former e-cigarette users (who ended up switching back to normal cigarettes) this summer.. There is now real evidence which confirms the findings of Allen Carr’s Easyway To Stop Smoking Organisation’s survey in March 2014 which indicated that 84% of e-cigarette users continue to smoke normal cigarettes or return to normal smoking entirely. John Dicey, Worldwide Managing Director of Allen Carr’s Easyway comments “As soon as the e-cigarette phenomenon hit the UK we immediately became aware that e-cigarette users were smoking normal cigarettes whenever they could and using e-cigarettes at times when they couldn’t. We also discovered that many of the e-cigarette users who were attending our clinics understood that their intake of nicotine had actually dramatically increased since they started vaping. They found that they vaping inside the home and other places where previously they’d have been forced to go outside to smoke a real cigarette – thus forcing them to cut down.” It will be years before the negative health effect of using e-cigarettes (delivering high levels of poisonous nicotine) along with continued use of normal cigarettes is known. Dicey continues “It really is a ‘back to the future’ kind of situation. In the 1940s and 1950s doctors and health professionals would actually recommend that patients smoke and even endorse certain brands. It took Professor Sir Richard Doll decades to make the findings of his study in the 1950s linking smoking to lung cancer and other chronic diseases accepted - during which time generations of smokers became addicted and paid the ultimate price. Millions of lives were lost because of the speed (or lack of it) at which his findings were accepted. Today, some really big hitters in the anti-tobacco and medical establishment are making a huge mistake by pushing smokers towards e-cigarette use thereby ensuring that they carry on smoking and vaping and therefore in many cases increasing their intake of nicotine. They seem entirely blind to the dangers of the phenomenon they’ve helped create. Aside from that - the biggest issue by far is the sudden re-normalisation of smoker/smoker-like behaviour which is already having a huge impact on youngsters picking up e-cigarettes and normal cigarettes.” On 1st January 2014 Allen Carr’s Easyway Organisation extended its famous worldwide money back guarantee (for their stop smoking clinic programme) to include e-cigarettes. Dicey confirms “The fabulous thing about the Easyway method is that it can work for any smoker – light, heavy, casual, or even someone using e-cigarettes. It was a simple decision to include e-cigarettes in our money back guarantee and incredibly reassuring for those people who feel they have fallen into an even deeper trap by using e-cigarettes as well as smoking normal cigarettes.” CASE STUDY Paul Palmer, 28, from Haverhill, Suffolk, UK is just one of many former e-cigarette users who stopped smoking and vaping using Allen Carr’s Easyway To Stop Smoking method. He’d tried to stop smoking many, many times before without success until he finally quit in June 2014. Paul says “Yes, I attempted to stop smoking with electric cigarettes, the disposable ones you can buy.  They were OK but very strong and very expensive. I think I paid £4.50 for one cigarette, it was advertised as being the equivalent of 40 cigarettes however it lasted me less that 2 days and keeping in mind I only smoked maybe between 3-5 a day there was no way I was going to spend £4.50 every 2 days, it was cheaper to smoke!!! So I went back to smoking!!! Further down the line I heard about the electric Shisha pens, they are actually quite good and relatively cheap to buy - around £15 - which included everything.  They charge up and you can buy all different flavours of liquid nicotine to put in them. I have to say I did use one of these for a few months, but again it is not the same as smoking an actual cigarette.  When I smoked normal cigarettes I’d ritually go downstairs out of my flat and stand outside. I used to use it as thinking time with all sorts of things running through my head. However with the e-cigarettes I would just sit on the sofa and puff on it every now and again. In the end it turned out I was using it A LOT MORE than I used to smoke. As a smoker I’d have to make the effort to go outside and smoke whereas the Shisha was too easy! So in the end, it kind of fizzled out, I couldn’t be bothered to keep charging it up and slowly went back on to smoking the ‘real thing’ – normal cigarettes.   After using Allen Carr’s Easyway To Stop Smoking method I realised that using e-cigarettes was just keeping me addicted to nicotine – I was still hooked and controlled by the drug. Now that nicotine monster is dead and it feels wonderful! Allen Carr takes every excuse you can imagine for carrying on smoking and explains why it’s fake or phoney. You end up with no reasons to smoke – it’s that easy." Smokers and vapers can access free Allen Carr’s Easyway information films. They are not designed to help the individual stop smoking/vaping but include interesting and useful information to help when the smoker/vaper feels they do want to stop.
