TUI AG revives a medieval castle-estate into a fairytale

First settled by the Etruscans about 2,500 years ago, Castelfalfi came into its own with the rise of Florence in the 13th century, when its castle and much of the current village were built. Sadly, the village was pillaged during the  Florence-Siena war in 1554, but had another prosperous period in the 18th century as a Municipality under the peaceful administration of Montaione.The village also seemed fated for success at the beginning of the 20th century when a tobacco factory was built, bringing roads to the village. However, the rural exodus of the 1960s took with it all but five residents and in the early 1980s Castelfalfi was put up for sale by local authorities. Despite international interest, Castelfalfi remained a dormant sleeping beauty until 2007, when European based tourist company TUI AG acquired the village and surrounding 2,700-acre estate with a vision of reviving the village in the most authentic way possible and transforming Castelfalfi into one of Italy’s finest leisure and vacation destinations. Like a fairy god mother with a magic wand (or a prince with solid financing), TUI AG has breathed new life into Castelfalfi. The tobacco factory is now a hotel and the castle and village are being artfully restored to incorporate leisure, retail and residential components while remaining true to the ancient architectural styles and local traditions. Wherever possible, original features are being maintained. For example, in some cases, original bricks have been removed and re-laid to ensure an authentic rebuilding, and in one case, a whole tile roof was carefully removed, insulation and weather protection were installed, and the original tiles were re-set. TUI AG also is determined to retain the rural character of the region, so only 0,03 percent of the land is being developed. When complete, Toscana Resort Castelfalfi will provide visitors with the chance to experience an authentic slice of Tuscany while enjoying the services of a resort. Life at Castelfalfi will center on the village, where the ancient buildings will house apartments, a boutique hotel, shops, restaurants and cafes, and Il Castello (the Castle), which will delight visitors with an upmarket Tuscan restaurant, bar and other amenities. The concept is well on its way to being realized. Today, visitors can dine at Trattoria Il Rosmarino, stay at the boutique Hotel La Tabaccaia, and enjoy the public swimming pool and gym as well as extensive hiking and biking trails. The world-class 18 hole Mountain Course and new 9-hole Lake Course are also in full swing. And within an hour of Castelfalfi, guests can explore the Renaissance and Medieval cities of Tuscany, from Siena and Lucca to Florence and Pisa, and then return to their fairytale village, complete with its own 800-year-old ancient castle. Investment: 250 million euro Project Timeframe at a glance: -        18-hole Mountain Course: opened in August 2010; -        Trattoria Il Rosmarino: opened autumn 2011; -        9-hole lakeside golf course: opened November 2011; -        31 room La Tabaccaia hotel: officially opened March 2013; -        Construction of 7golf villas: according to clients requests; -        Development and restoration of the historic Borgo apartments: delivered summer 2013; -        Le Piscine swimming pool: opened July 13th, 2013; -        Shops in the Borgo: July 2013; -        Renovation of two country villas Casale La Valle and Bianchi: December 2013; -        Restoration of the medieval castle (Castello): opened June 2014; -        Renovation of the 18 country villas (Casali): according to client requests; -        Heliport: 2016; -        Renovation of Casale Falecine: summer 2014; -        Renovation of Casale Falecine’s Barn: summer 2015 -        Development of new village (Borgo La Collina) comprising apartments with private gardens and shared swimming pool: construction works began in July 2014; -        Tennis courts: 2015; -        Restoration of other 7 historic Borgo apartments: spring 2015; -        Renovation of Casale Casiscala: spring 2015; -        Five-star hotel, with 120 rooms and a spa and a wide wellness area: completion date to be defined.

Castelfalfi Gastronomy

Whether dining on fresh pasta flavored with herbs, hand-picked from the hillsides, or venison served with local truffles, visitors to the Toscana Resort Castelfalfi can be sure that their meals are authentically field-to-table fresh. Head chef Francesco Ferretti at the Trattoria Il Rosmarino, the estate’s first dining spot,  bases his menus on the bounty of the surrounding farms, fields and forests. Trattoria Il Rosmarino, a classic Italian bistro, features regional specialties such as wild boar ragù as well as pizza, made to order in a traditional woodburning oven. Every dish, including pasta, is hand-made with the best of ingredients, that make even the simplest pizzas and pastas gourmet treats. The elegant cuisine is enhanced by the simple Tuscan décor and stunning panoramic views of the countryside. And on a clear evening, dining on the terrace under an expansive starlit sky is an unforgettable experience. The Castle, the heart of Castelfalfi’s Borgo since the early Middle Ages, was inaugurated in May with a wonderful musical show, after having being renovated for a long time. On the Castle’s ground floor, which boasts a panoramic terrace overlooking the surrounding countryside and the golf course, an international restaurant offers a sophisticated cuisine based on the high quality of its local ingredients. Also, this floor hosts a wine bar and some multi-purpose spaces for private events, meetings and banquets. Michele Rinaldi is the chef that leads the restaurant La Rocca di Castelfalfi: a young chef from Bergamo who achieved his first Michelin star at the age of 27. After having worked in some of the most renowned Italian and international restaurants, Chef Rinaldi delights his guests by offering a classic cuisine combined with sophisticated techniques, without forgetting tradition and simplicity, and a particular attention to detail. The Castle is animated also by a cooking school that offers various cookery courses, from the classic ones, dedicated to home-made pasta and traditional menus, to the more creative bakery or finger food courses. In addition, even the new hotel will have its own restaurant. The Hotel La Tabaccaia, which opened in March 2013, now serves an delicious buffet breakfast with fine Italian espresso in the hotel lounge; guests can also enjoy drinks, including Castelfalfi’s own wines, in the hotel bar. The shops in the Borgo sell local products, including truffles, mushrooms, pasta and the estate’s olive oil and wine. The bounty of Tuscany. Tuscany is known for its wonderful cuisine that takes advantage of its fine, locally grown ingredients, and Castelfalfi is builded on that tradition. The culinary experience actually begins when guests drive to the Toscana Resort Castelfalfi and notice the thyme, oregano, basil, rosemary, marjoram and sage, all waiting to be handpicked. Rolling down their windows, they might even smell the fragrant herbs that grow wild. Fields of olives, grapes and other products create geometric patterns on the hillsides. Vegetables, berries and fruits are all harvested from local fields. The region is also known for its indigenous Chianina breed of beef cattle and abundant wild game, including boars, hares, deers and pheasants. And in autumn wild truffles can be found. Guests visiting the resort can experience the rare and interesting sport of “truffle-hunting” with the estate’s gamekeeper, Giovanni Gallerini. The truffles grow underground and are considered one of the most expensive foods in the world. TDC Agricultural Production Wine - We have a total of 22 hectares of vineyards, divided into 17 hectares of Chianti and 5 hectares of IGT grape variety - Today, 10 hectares of Chianti are divided into 8 hectares of Sangiovese vines and two hectares of different blends (Merlot, Alicante, Cabernet and Colorino). The remaining 7 hectares of Chianti are new vines, which have recently planned and do not yet contribute to the wine production. - The 5 hectares of IGT vineyards are also new and are not in production. These are made up of: 1,5 ha Petit Verdot (2014), 1 ha Cabernet Sauvignon (2013), 1 ha Syrah (2013), 0.5 ha Merlot (2013), 1 ha Vermentino (2013), 0.5 ha Viognier (2013) - Wine bottled in 2014: 6700 bottles of San Piero IGT 2013 = 5 quintals 9770 bottles of Chianti Cerchiaia 2013 = 7,5 quintals 2964 bottles of Poggionero IGT 2011 = 2,5 quintals 3850 bottles of Poggionero IGT 2012 (not yet on the market) = 2,8 quintals The next wine production has not been decided yet, however, the idea is to produce the Chianti Cerchiaia 2014, the Tuscan IGT San Piero 2014, a Chianti Riserva 2014 (which will be ready in 2016 ), a Sangiovese 2013 and Poggionero 2013 Oil - Our 46 hectares of olive groves are divided into: 4 hectares is non-organic; 34 hectares is an old organic olive grove; 8 hectares is a new organic olive grove (planted in 2008, in 2012 and 2014). Bearing in mind that 2014 was not a good year and it should not be taken into consideration, on average, our olive grove produces 30-35 quintals of extra virgin olive oil. Spelt - This year we planted 50 hectares of spelt designated for the wholesale market. In 2014 200 packs of 500 grams each, have been bought back for the retail market. Honey - In 2014, we produced 40 kg of organic wildflower honey. Grappa - We are negotiating to produce a grappa with our brand (probably on the market since summer 2015). Alfalfa - We grow 26 acres of alfalfa (hay). Research and experimental fields - 3 hectares of land dedicated to the research and the assessment on potential productivity of biomass with poplar trees and common cane.

The beautiful, rolling hills of Tuscany once buried by the sea

The beautiful, rolling hills of Tuscany in Italy are as alive with history and culture as they are with flora and fauna. In the heart of the region, in the area between Florence, Pisa and Siena, is an 800-year-old estate dominated by an ancient castle: once home to the Medici family, this beautiful but neglected corner of Italy has been thoughtfully redeveloped and reborn as Toscana Resort Castelfalfi. In the 1960s, the 11,000-hectare estate was abandoned by all but five of its residents in a countrywide rural exodus. Then in 2007, TUI AG, one of world’s leading travel groups, came across the property and saw it potential.  ‘From the very outset the idea was to restore the ancient village and bring it back to life,’ says CEO Stefan Neuhaus. ‘We are preserving the site’s original structure and reinstating part of Italy’s heritage, but with all the additional modern services and standards that you would expect from such an upmarket resort. ’ Work on transforming the estate into a luxury resort began in 2011. The renovation of the borgo – the outskirts of the castle walls – commenced with the restoration of the residential complex comprising 41 apartments completed in the summer 2013, and with the development of the first of two planned hotels. Built within the walls of the old tobacco factory, the 31-room La Tabaccaia retains many of its host structure’s original features and there’s also a typical Trattoria-Pizzeria in a renovated building close by and a restaurant that opened its doors in June 2014, located in the Castle, with a panoramic terrace and amazing 360 degrees views over the countryside. The Castle will be the perfect location for those looking for a magic setting for weddings, private gatherings or business meetings. Scattered throughout the estate are 26 original farmhouses, or casali, four of which have been dismantled and lovingly rebuilt using the same stones. The buildings’ wooden beams have also been preserved and each farmhouse has a traditional terracotta tile roof, while bathrooms have been brought up to date using local marble or ceramic tiles. With the capacity to adapt each interior according to its owner’s specifications, these casali present an exciting prospect for would be buyers, whether seeking a stunning second home or a superior rental investment. Several of the properties also line the resort’s 27-hole golf course, which is already considered one of the best courses in Italy. Some of the farmhouse are also available for weekly rentals. Strewn with vineyards and olive and cypress trees, the estate is also a hunting reserve, playing home to wild boars, deer and foxes. It is also already self-sufficient in terms of water and there are plans to create a biomass plant, which will enable Toscana Resort Castelfalfi to produce its own biofuel.  ‘We searched for this place for a long time,’ says Stefan Neuhaus. ‘What we are developing is not a typical resort, it’s a new approach for the international luxury travel market that offers apartments, a range of farmhouses, a luxury club concept and four and five stars hotels. Our guests are well travelled and looking for an authentic experience. With us, that is exactly what they will find.’ Toscana Resort Castelfalfi is proud to present its new Corporate Profile.

Medivir and Cancer Research Technology collaborate to develop new class of cancer drugs

Stockholm, Sweden — Medivir AB (Nasdaq Stockholm: MVIR) and Cancer Research Technology (CRT), Cancer Research UK’s commercialization and development arm, today jointly announce a partnership to develop a new class of drugs that has shown promise for treating a range of different cancers, including pancreatic cancer. As part of the collaboration, CRT and Medivir will conduct a two-year research programme to optimize and develop small molecules targeting the cell surface protein ADAM8, which has been linked to tumour survival, cell invasion and metastasis. Under the terms of the agreement Medivir receives an exclusive, global license to research, develop, manufacture and commercialize ADAM8 inhibitor drugs resulting from development. CRT receives an upfront payment and future success milestones as well as royalties on sales which are shared with the academic collaborators. Blocking ADAM8 in mice with pancreatic cancer prevented the spread of the disease, shrunk tumours and significantly extended lifespan. This is thought to be due to its involvement in cell adhesion, cell migration, inflammation and the growth of blood vessels – key processes that many cancers rely on for growth and development. High levels of the protein have been linked with more aggressive tumours including those in pancreatic, breast, brain, prostate, lung, head and neck, and kidney cancers. This research will be led by Professor Jörg Bartsch as head of the TransMIT-Project Division for Research in Neuro-Oncology at TransMIT GmbH, located at Marburg University in Germany, in collaboration with Medivir. Prof. Bartsch previously worked at King’s College London where the initial patent application was filed by King’s College IP and Licensing team. Further proof of concept studies were funded by Cancer Research UK at King’s College. “We are very glad and excited to see this collaboration come to life. The synergy of expertise between Medivir and our Laboratory forms an excellent platform for successful exploration of this first-in-class approach to targeted therapy against ADAM8. This really is “bench-to bedside” research at its best,” said Professor Bartsch. “This collaboration is a demonstration of our commitment to advance oncology drug discovery at Medivir and we are pleased to partner with such a renowned institution such as Cancer Research UK, and with Professor Bartsch, a leading researcher in the field,” said Niklas Prager, Medivir’s CEO. Dr Keith Blundy, Cancer Research Technology’s chief executive officer, continues: “Medivir’s significant expertise in protease inhibitor design coupled with CRT’s proven track record in drug development will hopefully pave the way for an exciting new class of drugs for treating cancer. Exploratory studies indicate that ADAM8 is an attractive target across many types of cancer, and potentially other diseases driven by inflammation, and we look forward to further exploring that promise through this innovative collaboration.” For further information, please contact:Ola Burmark, CFO Medivir AB, mobil: +46 (0)725-480 580.

Immunological markers affected after six months in a first combination study with the diabetes vaccine Diamyd®

The immunological results after six months are presented at an international diabetes congress, IDS, held in Munich on April 12-16, 2015. “This far we can see that vitamin D concentrations in serum are elevated, GAD antibodies are induced as expected, and that the treatment has GAD-specific effects both with regards to anti-inflammatory and inflammatory cytokine responses,” says Professor Johnny Ludvigsson, Linköping, Sweden, principal investigator and sponsor of the study. “It will be exciting to see how this can affect parameters such as endogenous insulin producing capacity at 15 months.” The study DIABGAD, which is the first study of its kind, combines the diabetes vaccine Diamyd® with relatively high daily doses of vitamin D and the anti-inflammatory drug ibuprofen. The aim with the combination treatment is, after 15 months, to see a difference between treated patients and placebo with regards to the body’s own ability to produce insulin in children and adolescents, newly diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. The patients will be followed for a total period of 30 months. “These immunological results, six months into the study, should be seen as partial results of the complete study DIABGAD,” says Anders Essen-Möller, President and CEO of Diamyd Medical. “We can also use them to compare the immunological influence of different treatment concepts in other studies with Diamyd®. To attack the disease process from several angles simultaneously by combining Diamyd® with other drugs, or by administering Diamyd® directly into lymph nodes or earlier in the disease process, are alternative approaches tested in five different clinical studies today. From a safety perspective we consider the six-month results good. Even if we cannot draw any conclusion from these immunological results with regards to a clinically relevant effect on metabolic diabetes associated parameters, we have good hope, as previously informed, that the 15-month results by the end of this year will show positive metabolic results.” DIABGAD is a double-blind, randomized and placebo-controlled Phase II study in which 64 children and adolescents, 10-18 years of age and newly diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, have been treated with either the diabetes vaccine Diamyd® or placebo in combination with ibuprofen and vitamin D. The patients are randomly assigned to four treatment groups: a) Diamyd® in combination with ibuprofen and vitamin D, b) Diamyd® in combination with vitamin D, c) Diamyd® in double dose in combination with vitamin D; d) Placebo (inactive substance). About the diabetes vaccine Diamyd®Type 1 diabetes is a devastating disease which requires daily treatment with insulin to sustain life. The importance of finding a cure should not be underestimated. Diamyd® is considered to be the world’s furthest developed Antigen Based Therapy (ABT) for treating the disease. Diamyd® has been used in clinical studies with more than 1,000 patients and has shown a good safety profile. In a European Phase III study Diamyd® showed good clinical effect in several subgroups, and a limited overall 16% efficacy (p=0.10) in preserving endogenous insulin secretion. To enhance the overall effect, combination treatments with Diamyd® and other approved agents are being pursued. Diamyd® is easy to administer in any clinical setting. The potential annual market is estimated to several billion dollars. Five researcher-initiated clinical studies with Diamyd® are ongoing and one additional is being launched. · DIABGAD-1. A placebo-controlled study, where Diamyd® is being tested in combination with ibuprofen and vitamin D. The study comprises a total of 64 patients between the ages of 10 and 18 recently diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, and will continue for a total of 30 months. The aim of the combination treatment is to preserve the body’s residual capacity to produce insulin. All of the participants have been enrolled in the study and the initial six-month results, focusing on immunological markers, are presented in April 2015. The study runs at nine clinics in Sweden and is led by Professor Johnny Ludvigsson at Linköping University. · DiAPREV-IT. A placebo-controlled study, where Diamyd® is being tested in children with very high risk of developing type 1 diabetes, meaning that they have been found to have an ongoing autoimmune process but do not yet have any clinical symptoms of diabetes. A total of 50 participants from the age of four have been enrolled in the study, which will last for five years. The aim of the study is to evaluate whether Diamyd® can delay or prevent the participants from presenting with type 1 diabetes. The study is taking place in Sweden led by Dr. Helena Elding Larsson at Lund University. Results are expected at the end of 2016. · DIAGNODE. An open label study, where Diamyd® is administered directly into lymph nodes in combination with treatment with vitamin D. The study will comprise five patients between the ages of 18 and 30 who have been newly diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, and will continue for a total of 30 months. The aim of the study is to evaluate the safety of the combination treatment and the effect on the immune system and the patients’ insulin producing capacity. The study is taking place in Sweden led by Professor Johnny Ludvigsson and enrolled the first patient in February 2015. · Diamyd®/GABA. A placebo-controlled study, where Diamyd® is being tested in combination with GABA. The study will comprise 75 patients between the ages of 4 and 18 recently diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, and will continue for a total of 12 months. The aim of the combination treatment is to preserve the body’s residual capacity to produce insulin. The study is taking place in the US led by Professor Kenneth McCormick at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. The first patient was included in March 2015. · DiAPREV-IT 2. A placebo-controlled study, where Diamyd® is being tested in combination with vitamin D in children with very high risk of developing type 1 diabetes, meaning that they have been found to have an ongoing autoimmune process but do not yet have any clinical symptoms of diabetes. A total of 80 participants between the ages of 4 and 18 will be enrolled in the study, which will last for five years. The aim of the study is to evaluate whether Diamyd® can delay or prevent the participants from presenting with type 1 diabetes. The study is taking place in Sweden led by Dr. Helena Elding Larsson. The first patient was included in March 2015. · EDCR IIa. An open label study, where Diamyd® is combined with etanercept and vitamin D. The study will comprise 20 patients between the ages of 8 and 18 who have been newly diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, and will continue for a total of 30 months. The aim of the study is to evaluate the safety of the combination treatment and the effect on the immune system and the patients’ insulin producing capacity. The study is taking place in Sweden led by Professor Johnny Ludvigsson and is in the start-up phase. About Diamyd MedicalDiamyd Medical is dedicated to working toward a cure for type 1 diabetes and LADA. The Company’s projects include development of combination regimens with the GAD-based diabetes vaccine Diamyd® for arresting the destruction of insulin-producing beta cells.

Saab’s Latest AT4 and Carl-Gustaf M4 Make Their Latin American Debut at LAAD 2015

Important new capabilities developed by Saab for its AT4 weapons system will be exhibited for the first time at LAAD this year. These enhanced variants deliver extended range (ER) performance and improved high explosive (HE) effects. They enable any soldier to defeat more targets with greater flexibility and in many more scenarios. The latest AT4 versions were launched into production by a December 2014 order from the French Ministry of Defence procurement branch, the DGA (Direction Générale de l'Armement). The enhanced AT4 was selected, after a competitive evaluation, to serve as the Roquette Nouvelle Generation (Roquette NG) next-generation shoulder-launched weapon system for the French armed forces. Now, for the first time in Latin America, these important new capabilities are showcased at LAAD. “We are very proud to present our new AT4CS HE and AT4CS ER at LAAD for the first time in this region. They have been developed as a direct response to our customers’ needs and we are very pleased to show their new capabilities to a wider audience,” says Görgen Johansson, head of Saab business area Dynamics. The AT4CS ER takes the well-proven anti-armour capability of the AT4CS (Confined Space) and extends its effective range to 600 m. The AT4CS HE provides the soldier with a direct-fire support capability that can engage enemy troops in air-burst or impact mode out to a distance of 1,000 m. “The new members of our AT4 family further expand the great versatility of the weapon and emphasise its position as the leading disposable shoulder-launched support weapon on the market,” says Matz Öhrman, sales director, Saab market area Latin America. Saab’s latest Carl-Gustaf M4 is also being presented for the first time at LAAD. The new light-weight Carl-Gustaf M4 (http://www.saabgroup.com/en/Land/Weapon-Systems/support-weapons/Carl-Gustaf-M4/), weighing less than 7 kg, offers significant weight savings to the soldier. It is also compatible with future battlefield technology such as intelligent sighting systems for programmable ammunition. “For all users, the Carl-Gustaf system has proven to be very simple to train with and operate. For an individual it’s a short step from seeing the system for the first time to being proficient to use it effectively in military operations,” says Malcolm Arvidsson, product director for the Carl-Gustaf M4. The Carl-Gustaf M4, as with previous versions of the Carl-Gustaf, has been designed to be a very capable, flexible and easy-to-train solution for both current and new customers.

Castellum and Heimstaden enter into major transaction totalling SEK 2.4 billion

Castellum has acquired four properties in Örebro and one property in Solna through its wholly owned subsidiaries Aspholmen Fastigheter AB and Fastighets AB Brostaden.   In central Örebro, Aspholmen has acquired four office properties totalling 22,611 sq. m., with an occupancy rate of 92%. The investment amounted to SEKm 343 and the change of possession will take place in early May 2015.    In Solna, Brostaden has acquired an office property/project property of 5,364 sq.m. with an occupancy rate of 17%.The investment amounted to SEKm 63 and the change of possession will take place in early May 2015. Furthermore, through wholly owned subsidiary Fastighets AB Corallen, Castellum has acquired 50% of the shares in Henry Ståhl Fastigheter AB (HSAB) from Heimstaden, with an option to acquire the remaining 50% of the company earliest after 18 months. Heimstaden has a corresponding option to sell the remaining 50% after the end of Corallen’s time of option. Change of possession is estimated to take place in early June 2015. The purchase price, at utilization of the option, will be based on the properties market value. In addition, prior to the change of possession, Heimstaden will assume ownership of HSAB’s residential properties. This latter action will streamline HSAB into a real estate company with commercial premises. HSAB owns – after this latest restructuring – 13 properties in Norrköping and 9 properties in Linköping, corresponding to a total property value of SEK 1.9 billion. The transactions are conditional upon approval by the Swedish Competition Authority. The real estate portfolio in Norrköping, with an occupancy rate of approx. 85%, comprises 12 centrally located office buildings and a well-located logistics property totalling 107,275 sq. m. The Linköping property portfolio consists of 9 office buildings totalling 51,418 sq. m. Of these, 6 are centrally located, 2 are situated in the Mjärdevi Science Park and one is situated in the Tornby-area. The occupancy rate of the real estate portfolio is just under 90%. “This deal means that Castellum, with the strategy of a long-term player, gets the opportunity to grow in a region with favourable future prospects. We strengthen our position in Linköping and Örebro while entering a new market – Norrköping. As a long-term player, Castellum wants to contribute to urban development. This is why collaboration with Heimstaden was established, with the aim of developing new city districts in both Norrköping and Linköping. I look forward to working together with Heimstaden. We complement each other well: Castellum has vast experience in commercial properties and Heimstaden has steady focus on residential real estate. Together we’ll develop a solid existing commercial property portfolio, while opening up for new constructions of both commercial and residential properties,” says Henrik Saxborn, CEO of Castellum AB, in a statement. “We work continuously and intensively to increase the potential of our portfolio, and this transaction gives us an even more favourable position from which to deliver future growth,” Saxborn continues. “Through the partnership with Castellum we create the absolutely best opportunities for continued development of commercial premises in Norrköping and Linköping. Heimstaden, continues to wholly own all residential properties included in Heimstaden’s purchase of HSAB in December 2014. We can combine this with continued regional growth in Heimstaden’s prioritized segment: centrally located residential properties,” says Patrik Hall, CEO of Heimstaden. “Thus we get the best of both worlds, where this is also combined with our established cooperation on urban development. With employee skills, expert knowledge and service-mindedness – together with Castellum – we’ll contribute more substantially to future development in the region,” continues Patrik Hall.

The acquisition included inter alia a share issue in kind after which Holdham became the main shareholder in Bong. During the period between signing of the share purchase agreement and closing of the acquisition, the European Commission (the “Commission”) conducted dawn raids at the premises of Bong, the Hamelin group and several other European companies active within the envelope business. Due to the Commission investigation, Bong and Holdham entered into an amendment agreement to the share purchase agreement by which the parties committed to be liable for their own potential fines to the Commission and to hold the counterparty harmless for fines  relating to their own business (the “Amendment Agreement”). On 10 December 2014, the Commission reached its decision in the matter and both Bong and the Hamelin group were imposed fines. In order to fulfill its undertaking in the Amendment Agreement, Holdham had previously notified the Commission that any fine attributable to the Hamelin group should be addressed to Holdham as the former owner of the companies. Holdham has also paid these fines to the Commission. Holdham has now requested payment of EUR 776,382 in accordance with the Amendment Agreement, and the Board of Directors of Bong has requested a legal opinion in order to ensure that payment can be made in accordance with the Swedish Companies Act. It has thereby been established that it would be appropriate if the resolution was passed by the company’s shareholders at the annual general meeting. C.

HIPMUNK RELEASES 2015 SUMMER EUROZONE TRAVEL GUIDE

SAN FRANCISCO (April 13, 2015) — American travelers are abuzz with news that the dollar to euro conversion rate is the best it’s been in years and many are eagerly planning their trips abroad. But what many travelers don’t know is that not all countries in Europe use the euro and that Eurozone deals vary from country to country. Hipmunk reviewed year-over-year flight, hotel, and vacation rental data to determine which Eurozone countries are the best deals, where travelers can shave off a few extra euros, and which country is the best fit for individual travel budgets.  “Most things in the Eurozone will be about 20 percent off to Americans,” said Adam Goldstein, CEO and co-founder of Hipmunk. “But flights and hotels owned by companies headquartered elsewhere might not be as heavily discounted—especially with increased demand. So even with the conversion rate in our favor, travelers will have to keep an eye out for a good deal.” Hipmunk’s team of data scientists reviewed flight/hotel searches and bookings made on Hipmunk from January 1 - April 4, 2015 for travel dates from June 1 – August 31, 2015. To calculate year-over-year data, Hipmunk compared this 2015 data to data from the same date ranges in 2014. Overall budget estimates are calculated by adding the average dollar cost of round trip airfare for one adult to the average price of a five-night hotel stay at the average nightly rate, single occupancy. All price data reflects rates actually booked by Hipmunk users and all search data reflects the percentage share of actual searches. Eurozone Countries by Budget The analysis revealed that the top two countries with the lowest overall vacation budget, Lithuania and Latvia, are also less popular destinations. However, a few popular destinations round out the top five.

In fact, the average summer airfare from the U.S. to the Eurozone has increased 7 percent since 2014. However, there are specific flight routes from top U.S. cities to top Eurozone cities that are significantly lower than the national average.

Textron Systems Expands Production on U.S. Navy Ship-to-Shore Connector Program with Latest Contract Option Award

NEW ORLEANS, LA – APRIL 13, 2015 – Textron Systems Marine & Land Systems, a Textron Inc. (NYSE: TXT) business, announced today it has been awarded a $84,087,095 contract option from the U.S. Navy Naval Sea Systems Command for two next-generation Landing Craft, Air Cushion (LCAC) vehicles and associated technical manuals as part of the Ship-to-Shore Connector (SSC) program. Marine & Land Systems will assemble crafts 102 and 103 at its New Orleans Shipyard. Deliveries are expected in the fourth quarter of 2019. SSC craft will serve as the evolutionary replacement for the Navy’s existing fleet of LCACs, which are nearing the end of their service life. Their mission is to land surface assault elements in support of operational maneuver from the sea, at over-the-horizon distances, while operating from the Navy’s amphibious ships and mobile landing platforms. Like earlier LCACs, these craft also will be used for humanitarian and disaster relief missions. The new air cushion vehicles, offering increased reliability and availability, are designed for a 30-year service life. They will use more corrosion-resistant aluminum in the hull than current LCAC, as well as composites in the propeller shroud assembly and shafting to increase craft availability and lower life-cycle maintenance costs. These craft also will incorporate an advanced skirt, a pilot/co-pilot arrangement, a cargo deck to accommodate a 74 short ton payload (up to M1A1 Tank), and more powerful, fuel efficient Rolls-Royce engines. “The multi-million dollar technology investments we’ve made for the SSC program at our 600,000 square-foot shipyard are set to deliver important dividends to our Navy customer in terms of manufacturing efficiencies, productivity and quality,” explains Tom Walmsley, senior vice president and general manager, Marine & Land Systems. “The new craft our team is fabricating and assembling will offer improved performance over legacy LCAC along with enhancements that will increase availability and reduce ownership costs for the Navy.” Textron Systems, in July 2012, earned a $213 million contract for the detailed design and construction of the SSC Test and Training craft (LCAC 100), which is scheduled to be delivered in 2017. The initial SSC contract includes total options for up to eight production craft to be delivered by 2020. A contract option for LCAC 101 was awarded in August 2014. The SSC program requirement is for a total of 73 craft (one Test and Training and 72 operational craft). # # # Certain statements in this press release may project revenues or describe strategies, goals, outlook or other non-historical matters; these forward-looking statements speak only as of the date on which they are made, and we undertake no obligation to update them.

The Never Ending Mining of Your Wallet for Tax Revenue

What If I told you cell phone service, cable, internet and air travel will cost 5% to 10% more this year. If you called the phone company or the airlines to complain your anger would be misdirected. Blame your representatives on all levels of government for the extra costs of communicating and for the extra fees as you make that trip to Yellowstone. And point the finger to your elected officials for the many increased and new fees you will be required to pay this year.According to the Office of Management and Budget, the Federal Government is estimated to collect more than $3.0 trillion in total receipts for the year of 2014. The vast majority of these funds come from taxes, including almost $1.4 trillion expected to come from individual income tax payments alone. Another $800 billion will come from Social Security receipts, $300 billion in corporate income taxes, $280 billion listed as miscellaneous and the final $220 billion will come from excise taxes and fees. While the revenue from income taxes, Social Security receipts and corporate taxes has remained relatively flat, revenue from excise taxes and fees-which this study will cover- will rise 20% in 2014 over the previous year. These fees, along with others can push your 15% federal tax bracket to 25%, and your 33% bracket to 54%. Why is this happening? As the population ages and millions of baby boomers retire, tax revenue collected the traditional way through payroll taxes has and will continue to decline. Without any discernible cut in government spending to offset that decline in revenue and to still be able to pay for Big Bird, our representatives have come up with many creative, dubious and outright absurd ways to fill the government coffers. The frustratingly ironic realization is that this money has been previously taxed on the federal, state, and local levels. My decision to do this study was motivated by the curiosity of an increasingly higher monthly cell phone bill, cable bill and internet bill without any change in service. Stick with me and I will take you to the fantasy world of American taxation. It all starts with the sales tax, which is mandated by the state to be collected on all goods and services that are sold within the state. Sales taxes are often considered to be regressive, meaning lower-income individuals and households spend a greater proportion of their earnings to pay the tax, compared with higher-income residents. Some necessities such as certain food items are exempt from the tax, whereas others, such as electricity are taxed at a high rate. On top of that, homeowners pay property taxes, or if you rent, your landlord includes the property taxes in your monthly payment. If you travel, you are taxed on airline tickets, rental cars and hotel rooms. You pay taxes on your cab rides, on gas for your car, as well as tolls for maintenance and operations of bridges and tunnels. You may think this is not a tax, call it a surcharge if you like, but when you pay your state and local taxes, isn’t a portion of that supposed to fund maintenance of roads and bridges? And isn’t that what the gas tax was originally meant for? Your indulgence in drinking and smoking will be punished by heavy taxation. The “sin” taxes alone are expected to generate almost $34 billion in revenue for the Feds in 2014. There are very few items that you buy that don’t have some sort of tax or fee attached to it. If you think the only way to escape the constant assault of taxes is death, think again: there is an estate tax. These inconspicuous taxes can account for anywhere from 8% to almost 30% of your total purchase. Add that to what you pay in federal, state, and in some cases local taxes, and your total tax bill can be surprisingly high, to say the least.Of course, where you live in this country has a big influence on the amount of taxes you pay. However, you can’t escape the fact that no matter where you live, you will pay.For this study, I tracked my expenses for a period of 2 months to present a more accurate picture of my spending. Each tax item on goods purchased and bills paid is recorded in the included spreadsheet. My demographics are as follows: I work and live in New York City, I own a mortgage- free home on which I pay a co-op maintenance fee that includes real estate taxes. I do not own a car, but occasionally rent one, I travel, I have a cell phone, as well as the internet and cable services.One of the many revelations in this study is how redundant and often outrageous many of these taxes are. For example, the 3% Federal Excise tax or State communication excise surcharge was enacted in 1898 as a temporary measure to help pay for the Spanish-American war. Yes, 1898. There are speculations that the tax was suspended in 2006- a full 108 years after the war began- but most likely where the revenue is targeted has been renamed.My expenses fall into 4 major categories: Housing which encompasses real estate taxes and electricity. Transportation includes airline tickets, taxis, rental cars, gas and hotel rooms. Communication covers cable, internet and telephone. And finally Merchandise and Services comprises clothing, food, dining out, household items and other necessities. I am aware of what part of my income is paid in federal state and local taxes, but I wanted to see how my day-to-day expenses add to the bottom line. In the past, I thought the sales tax was the only one to account for. In many examples that is not the case. Housing The Housing category is heavily skewed by the inclusion of real estate taxes as part of the co-op fee. They account for 49% of the fee, and the other 51% is for maintenance, water and gas. As the spread sheet shows, a whopping 49.8% of Housing expenses went to pay taxes. Even if you rent, the real estate taxes your landlord pays are part of your bill. In addition, your electricity is heavily taxed. Con Edison, the electric supplier, is a quasi public/private organization that is publicly traded but heavily regulated by the state. In reality, it’s a monopoly overseen by the Public Service Commission whose 5 members are appointed by the governor and whose key responsibility seems to be rubber stamping rate increases.On the $142.78 bill for the month of July the actual cost of electricity was $56.15, a mere 39% of the total. But you, as a consumer, fund the operations of the company. You shoulder expenses for infrastructure and maintenance of the system, accounting, meter reading, environmental funds, and delinquent payers. Various taxes and fees are responsible for $18.33 including a temporary surcharge of $1.95 that the state of New York sneaked onto your electricity bill 5 years ago. This money is directed into the New York general fund that pays for the operation of the state and is supposed to be funded with the state taxes that you already pay. Just think of this: 13% of your electricity bill is taxes.TransportationThis is the government’s playground for arbitrary state and local taxes and fees. Just the Federal government take of transportation fees is projected to be $39 billion in 2014. For every $100 dollars spent on transportation, $18.60 was some sort of tax. For example, airline ticket surcharges can account for 15% to 25% of the total cost of the ticket. This includes a US Fed Transportation fee for control towers, communications and operations, a 9/11 fee that helps to fund TSA, a facility fee that pays for the airport itself. If you decide to fly international, add a customs fee, an immigration fee, a passenger fee, and an international surcharge on top of this. Seven different fees in total!! The revenue generated is directed into the general fund of the Federal government. The tax in NYC for rental cars is 19.875%. It’s comprised of the standard sales tax of 8.875% and a state imposed tax on rental cars which skyrocketed to 11% from the original 5% when it was enacted in 1990. That 11% collected is directed into the general fund for New York State. A gallon of gasoline purchased in NYC has at least 7 separate taxes and fees totaling about 69 cents according to a study by the API. A full 12 gallon tank will cost you $8.38 in fees and taxes. Of them, 8 cents in state sales taxes, 2 cents for environmental cleanup, and 16 cents in local taxes, a portion which funds the MTAs budget. As a car driver, you still pay for the operations of the subway and bus system. There is an 8 cent motor fuel excise tax which is supposed to go for road and bridge repairs –isn’t that what tolls are for- but which is regularly ends up in the general fund. Another 17 cents is passed along to you from petroleum companies which pay this tax to the government. The Federal Government takes 18.4 cents. Oh wait, don’t you already pay federal taxes? The state tax in New Jersey, one of the lowest in the nation, is about 15 cents per gallon plus the Federal government fee. If you count state taxes only, NY ranks eighth in the country. When you calculate the total to include federal and local taxes, NY is number one. Another mode of transportation that has obscure fees is taxi cabs. For every taxi ride taken in NYC, there is a 50 cent surcharge that helps to yet again fund MTA operations. For the average $12 taxi ride, the surcharge implies a 4% tax.CommunicationAnother favorite dumping ground for taxes and fees, Communication group covers wireless telephone, land line, internet, and cable. Those little charges can drive your bill up anywhere from 10% to almost 30%. This is the one area that will affect the middle class the most as the vast majority of Americans use phone and cable daily. These taxes are mandated on all three levels of government and in my case accounted for 17.7% of my total communication expenses. The catch here is that you pay for a variety of services in locations that have nothing to do with your daily life. You fund communication services in schools, hospitals and libraries far from where you actually live; it is listed under “Federal Universal service charge”. So, the next time a call is made from a North Dakota library to remind someone in Bismarck of an overdue book, you made that happen. Yet, other taxes offset the cost the service provider incurs while providing state-to-state and long-distance services. Not only are we paying a fee when we call state to state, we are also paying to provide the service. It’s on your bill under “Regulatory Cost recovery surcharge.” There are fees for using other providers’ towers and a myriad of other state and county taxes on your cell phone bill. And you didn’t think that we can do without funding the MTA in this category, did you? The MTA Telecom Surcharge, in which 15 million New York City metro residents pay every month, generates almost $130 million annually in revenue for the transportation system. The tax was introduced in 2001 as a temporary fee. On your cable and internet bill you can expect taxes and fees for funding the FCC, PBS and public education, providing services to rural areas and a variety of state and local taxes.And the tax that takes the prize is for the administration and deployment of 911 services. Part of this tax which appears in 2 different places on most of my communication bills and accounted for over 1% of the total cost pays for the system that can triangulate a person’s position in case they are lost and unaware of their location in New York State. Why is this important? It can save lives. The irony of it is that the government “has forgotten” to implement the system though the technology is available and many states use it. What it hasn’t forgotten is to collect the fee for the system for many years. A few years ago an elderly couple became lost while driving in the Adirondack Mountains, and though they were able to call 911 and report their situation, they could not be found and subsequently froze to death. Two teenage boaters lost their lives in an East river storm a couple of years ago for exactly the same reason. Merchandise and Services The final category covers daily expenses such as food, household items, dining out, entertainment, dry cleaning etc. While food, unless prepared, and clothing under $110, are exempt of any sales tax, the rest of the items are taxed at 8.875% in New York City. The state’s share is 4%, and the other 4.875% percent is split between local governments and yes, you guessed it right, the MTA.How are these taxes generated by the government? A state representative provided me with some insight on how the system works. In most cases, there must be public hearings and an extensive amount of debate for the state or the federal government to raise income taxes. However the reality is raising income taxes is not a way to win votes unless you are talking about raising taxes on the wealthy. I want to stress that this is a bipartisan issue - neither party wants to raise taxes on the middle class or the poor. And that’s where our representatives have to stretch their imagination to come up with new fees or at least raise the existing ones in order to fund projects and close budget gaps. And as a tax payer you have surprisingly very little control over what they do. And have no doubt, because of declining income tax revenue this train of taxes will never stop. Many of these taxes are redundant. The MTA, in addition to subway, bus and train fares, receives funding from taxi rides, cell phone bills, and the sales tax -none of which has anything to do with running the MTA. That is 4 different sources of revenue that this octopus-like agency has. And here is the real shocker: while the Board of the MTA is appointed by the governors of New York and New Jersey, the MTA has no fiscal oversight from the governors, the legislature or anyone else in either state. They are almost completely autonomous and have very little control. Many of the taxes are called “temporary,” but in the case of the war tax, and others, the temporary label can be anywhere from 5 to 100 years. But as an old Russian proverb has it: “there is nothing more permanent than temporary.” For your enjoyment, below is a list introduced in 2010 which identifies 124 different taxes that the New York State Legislature was proposing to raise in just one year. You might think a few dollars here or there don’t matter, but if all the taxes proposed were raised, the state would expect about $14 billion in revenue. The list includes everything from drivers’ licenses to fishing licenses and 122 other ways to raise revenue in between. And unless the voter chooses to expel every one of their representatives from office, or to dump tea in New York harbor, the taxation by our representation will continue. Unlike headline grabbing income tax hikes, our taxes are raised in a sly pickpocket of our wallets. Many of them harm the quality of life they are trying to improve, -such as College tuition (7), health insurance (13), and the Criminal history search (116) fee. A lot of these new fees did pass as is the case with the auto rental fee (35) and the Internet hotel tax (111) called the Expedia fee, which is sure to drive some tourists and eventually jobs away. Some did not pass, such as the Income tax hike (1). Others had good intentions but would cost taxpayers millions, such as the Timothy’s law fee (100), which would have placed a surcharge on all health insurance policies sold within New York State to pay for mental health services for the uninsured. New taxes for 2014   If you believe this only goes on in New York State, you are wrong. This goes on around the country. In fact, when the latest budget deal was made in the Senate in December of 2013, both Democrats and Republicans were beaming about the fact that they did not raise taxes. However, what they did was raise fees for things such as airline tickets, entrance fees for parks, licenses, passports and many, many more. The sobering thought is that the reigns are off and it only gets worse. Not one objection was raised. Should they be held accountable?To make our future even brighter, in 2014 a torrent of new fees will take effect on all levels of government with the spotlight on the taxes imposed to pay for Obamacare. It starts with a 2% tax on every healthcare plan sold, and an additional $2 fee per policy directed to a medical research trust fund with a very Orwellian name - the Patient Centered Outcomes Research Institute. There is also a 2.3% medical device tax. If you suffer from asthma and your breath has been taken away by the findings in this study, your inhaler was taxed. And according to Kaiser Health News, if you earn $200,000+, you will pay even more taxes. On a plan costing $322, the taxes and fees will add $23 to the monthly cost. Even insurers will have to shell out 3.5% per plan sold on the healthcare.gov website. That, of course, they will happily pass on to the consumer. The Bottom Line All those inconspicuous taxes and fees, a dollar here and 2% extra there, added 20.7% to my tax bill or 11% excluding the real estate tax. Combined with my federal, state, and local taxes, it’s a mind boggling 70% that goes to Uncle Sam and his cousins, on the state and local levels in one form or another. And this number is even higher for a middle class family earning $40,000 to $100,000. Lower earners have to spend a higher percentage of their income on things such as communication, transportation, housing- the exact items that carry the arbitrary taxes and fees- and less on discretionary items that are taxed at the lower sales tax rate. I drew some parallels between what an average person would pay in the US or in the UK and Germany. I found some creative and at the same time familiar ways taxpayers are hit in those countries too. For example, in Germany, while the top federal tax rate is 45% on incomes over 250,000 Euros, citizens are subject to state and local taxes, along with real estate, and social security taxes. There is also a Church Tax that violates every rule of separation of church and state in this country. In 2011, the Catholic Church received 5 billion Euros from the German government and the Protestant-Lutheran church received 4.5 billion according to the Merco press. This tax was introduced through an 1803 decree that called for the nationalization of church property and made the government responsible for the maintenance of churches. The government collects the tax from registered Catholics and Protestants and reimburses the church. The tax is on a sliding scale and can run as high as 8% on incomes over 1 million Euros. Germany also imposes a VAT (Value added Tax) which is a national sales tax or consumption tax. The current rate for the tax is 19%, but as low as 8% for necessities such as food, clothing, and medicine. This tax is applied to all goods and services sold, so instead of having 14 different taxes and fees on your cell phone bill you have the VAT. And of course the so-called temporary- taxes turned-perpetual are not isolated to this side of the pond. After the fall of the Berlin wall in 1989, a temporary Solidarity tax was introduced to assist in the re-unification of the two parts of Germany. That tax still exists today and runs as high as 5.5% on incomes over 1 million Euros. In the UK you will find much of the same thing. Income tax rates of 20% to 45% on incomes above 150,000 pounds. There is also a 20% VAT with exemptions for food and clothing. So, your phone bill, for instance, will only have one tax, the VAT. A UK citizen also pays the council tax which funds local services in a way property taxes would and a road tax if he owns a car. The second biggest source of revenue is the National Insurance Tax, which covers healthcare, disability, unemployment and retirement benefits, this tax rate varies between 0% and 12% of income and is derived from a complicated formula that considers age, health, job title and seniority in determining the final rate. However, healthcare in the UK is fully funded by the government which makes medicine free to the consumer after the tax is paid, of course. In the US, I still have to pay $600 per month as my insurance premium as well as, my co-payments, deductibles and the percentage of the medical bills that is the patients’ responsibility. The immortal Winston Churchill once said “there is no such thing as a good tax”. What I have found is, no matter where you live in the civilized world if a government can figure a way to tax its citizens, it will.

Elekta to deliver advanced cancer management solutions to Providence Health & Services

STOCKHOLM, April 14 – Elekta announced today that Providence Health & Services (Renton, Washington, USA) – the nation’s third largest not-for-profit health system – has ordered multiple Elekta cancer management solutions, including radiation therapy systems and upgrades, oncology information systems and multiyear service contracts for its hospitals, clinics and other health care facilities in Washington, Alaska, California, Montana and Oregon. In 2012, Providence and Seattle’s Swedish Health Services affiliated, bringing together two of the region’s largest health care organizations. The Swedish Cancer Institute was a long-time partner with Elekta in the provision of cancer management resources in the northwest. “Our new partnership with Providence continues a mutually beneficial tradition in which two organizations work together to build value for thousands of individuals in this region who need world-class health care,” says Jay Hoey, Executive Vice President, Elekta North America. “We’re jointly creating something that is more than a traditional vendor-customer relationship – it’s an alliance of two entities with a common vision to improve patients’ lives.” In the agreement, Providence Health & Services will acquire several Versa HD™ (http://www.versahd.com/) systems, Elekta’s most advanced radiation therapy system (linear accelerator), featuring sophisticated beam shaping technology combined with high dose rate delivery. Versa HD is designed to give clinicians the flexibility to deliver conventional therapies to treat a wide range of small and large tumors throughout the body, while also enabling treatment of highly complex cancers that require extreme targeting precision. In addition, Elekta will provide upgrades to several existing Elekta systems, including the integration of Agility™ (http://www.elekta.com/agility) 160-leaf multileaf collimator (MLC) and XVI (5.0) (http://www.elekta.com/XVI) software. In a significant acquisition of Elekta software, Providence also will begin a system-wide conversion of its existing oncology information system to MOSAIQ® (http://www.elekta.com/MOSAIQ) Oncology Information System. Installation of the Elekta systems is set to begin immediately, continuing through the end of 2016. # # # 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 Tobias Bülow, Director Financial Communication, Elekta ABTel: +46 722 215 017, e-mail: tobias.bulow@elekta.comTime zone: CET: Central European TimeThe 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.

Accounting treatment change

Accounting treatment change Based on a further review, Nickel Mountain Group AB (“NMG”) has concluded that the IFRS accounting rules demand that the claim against Alluvia Mining Ltd amounting to 30 MSEK and previously recorded as an asset, should not be recorded as an asset in the 12-month 2014 group balance sheet. The reason is that this claim probably has limited value. Instead the claim for damages against the former board of directors should be recorded as a contingent asset in accordance with the IAS 37 provisions (contingent liabilities and contingent assets). This accounting treatment change is booked in the last quarter of 2014 and leads to NMG recording an additional cost item of 30 MSEK in the 12-month 2014 group result. Consequently, it also results in the group equity being reduced by 30 MSEK at end of December 2014. As compared to the already published 12-month interim report for 2014, the new accounting treatment hence results in the following: Financial year 2014 The group net result reduces from TSEK -16,007 to TSEK –46,007. As at end of December 2014, group equity reduces from TSEK 190,794 to TSEK 160,794. Equity per share before and after dilution at year-end 2014 reduces from SEK 2.10 to SEK 1.77. Quarter 4, 2014 (Oct – Dec 2014) The group net result reduces from TSEK -4,216 to TSEK –34,216. No changes to the legal claim against former board members In June 2014, NMG filed a civil lawsuit against four former board members of NMG claiming damages amounting to 55 MSEK plus accrued interest. The transaction has been thoroughly described in NMG’s previous financial reports. NMG’s legal advisors consider that the probability of winning the legal case is high and the accounting treatment change has no impact on this claim or on NMG’s continuous efforts to succeed with the claim. Consequently, NMG considers the claim against the former board as the main underlying valuable asset instead of the original claim against Alluvia Mining.   The new treatment of this item as a contingent asset however leads to the above described consequences and follows from NMG’s interpretations of the IFRS accounting rules.

Proact supplies new data centre to sawmill group VIDA

Sawmill group VIDA has chosen Proact to supply its IT infrastructure. The company is also upgrading its data centre and replacing most of its hardware. VIDA has centralised its IT operations at a data centre serving collective group functions and production facilities all over southern Sweden. A range of business-critical applications are run here, including systems for timber purchasing and sawmill production management. VIDA has now selected a solution from Proact which is based on the FlexPod reference architecture, using equipment such as Cisco UCS blade servers and NetApp storage systems, including disk-based backup. All data storage will be mirrored to a secondary data centre, thereby also giving the company considerably stronger disaster protection than it used to have. “We like both the performance and the security we get as part of the FlexPod concept, with support from Proact. This is also a cost-effective solution as we are now making a complete switch to a modern, virtualised infrastructure,” says Magnus Linnér, Head of IT at VIDA. FlexPod is a reference architecture for data centres in which all components are tested and optimised in advance so that they all work together. This also means that Proact, in its capacity as a supplier, can accept overall responsibility for support even though the equipment is being supplied by a number of manufacturers. “VIDA is the latest in a long line of customers who have discovered the advantages of FlexPod. Selecting a reference architecture instead of building a data centre using ‘loose’ components will give them a system which is fine-tuned and ready to get up and running right from the outset,” says Dan Mårtensson, Regional Manager at Proact. VIDA AB is Sweden’s biggest privately owned sawmill group, employing around 900 staff at 17 production plants in Småland, Skåne and Västra Götaland, seven of which are sawmills. Around 85% of the company’s products are exported. Its operations also include building manufacture, packaging manufacturer, pellet manufacture and biofuel trading.

Precise Biometrics awarded the 2015 Frost & Sullivan Award for Global Customer Value Leadership in Fingerprint Biometrics for Mobile Devices

Based on its recent analysis of Fingerprint Biometrics for Mobile Devices, Frost & Sullivan honors Precise Biometrics with the 2015 Global Frost & Sullivan Award for Customer Value Leadership. In the award motivation (http://precisebiometrics.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/04/Precise-Biometrics-Award-Write-Up.pdf), the highly efficient fingerprint software Precise BioMatch Mobile (http://precisebiometrics.com/fingerprint-technology/precise-biomatch-mobile/), which provides superior fingerprint authentication for smartphones and tablets, is praised. In 2014, Precise BioMatch Mobile was integrated in the world’s first Android smartphone with a touch fingerprint sensor. “Precise Biometrics is a leader in fingerprint biometrics for the global mobile device market, and its fingerprint technology, which offers superior convenience and security, is critical for mobile device manufactures to ensure the transition to the new authentication paradigm”, said Nandini Bhattacharya, Senior Research Analyst at Frost & Sullivan.In addition to offering a robust solution portfolio and ensuring a fulfilling customer experience, Frost & Sullivan commends Precise Biometrics’ best-in-class service and support that ensures a proficient customer service experience.“Our fingerprint technology is based on nearly 20 years of research and has since the start been developed for integration in mobile devices. Over the years our products have received top rankings in performance evaluations and this award is an acknowledgement by the mobile industry that our fingerprint technology provides the best combination of convenience and security, delivering a superior end-user experience”, says Håkan Persson, CEO of Precise Biometrics.Precise BioMatch Mobile provides easy integration of fingerprint matching functionality for smartphones and tablets, and is optimized for small touch sensors in mobile environments through a unique patented hybrid algorithm. The software offers fast, accurate, and secure verification of the user’s identity, creating a convenient user experience for consumers when unlocking their mobile device or authenticating to services, while delivering enhanced security.  While Precise BioMatch Mobile has been designed for identity authentication in mobile devices, Precise BioMatch Embedded (http://precisebiometrics.com/fingerprint-technology/precise-biomatch-embedded/), which is based on the same fingerprint algorithm, can be used to integrate fingerprint authentication in any hardware platform, such as time and attendance units, point-of-sale terminals, computers and more. In the analysis of fingerprint biometrics for mobile devices, Frost & Sullivan states that the continued rise in identity theft and fraudulent activities has resulted in a growing demand for a stricter authentication process for mobile devices. While one’s personal identification number (PIN) and password can easily be forgotten or stolen, fingerprint technology provides improved security and convenience for the user. This has led to staggering growth in the demand for fingerprint authentication capability among mobile manufacturers and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs). They not only require a high-precision authentication technology, but they also require a solution that can easily fit into the mobile environment.ABOUT THE AWARDEach year, Frost & Sullivan presents this Award to the company that has demonstrated excellence in implementing strategies that proactively create value for its customers with a focus on improving the return on the investment that customers make in its services or products. The Customer Value Leadership Award recognizes the company's inordinate focus on enhancing the value that its customers receive, beyond simply good customer service, leading to improved customer retention and, ultimately, customer base expansion.Frost & Sullivan Best Practices Awards recognize companies in a variety of regional and global markets for demonstrating outstanding achievement and superior performance in areas such as leadership, technological innovation, customer service, and strategic product development.

Brimming with advanced design and technology features, Iveco’s Vision concept takes pride of place on the company’s 900m² stand. A fully-functioning prototype, it has been built by Iveco to test and develop new technological solutions and future modes of transport. Bob Lowden, Managing Director of Iveco UK, says: “This is our Vision of the future; a prototype for what the next generations of Daily may look like. Its creation is centred – above all – on low environmental impact mobility and safety.” Commenting on its presence at the CV Show, Lowden adds: “Vans are vital to the health of UK plc; the growth of e-commerce and home deliveries means they are playing an increasingly pivotal role in our domestic transport and logistics networks. Bringing the Iveco Vision to the CV Show gives us a chance to gather important feedback from both small businesses and blue-chips, for which vans keep the wheels of British business turning.” At the heart of the Iveco Vision lies a sophisticated dual energy system which has been developed by Iveco to further minimise environmental impact. The dual energy system gets its name from its ability to self-adapt to the most suitable traction mode – one is exclusively electric, ensuring zero local emissions and low noise levels for inner city areas, and the other is hybrid (thermoelectric) and suitable for longer journeys and extra-urban missions, reducing consumption and CO2emissions by up to 25 per cent compared with diesel-only equivalents. Other unique features found on board include ‘see-through’ front pillars which guarantee unrestricted driver visibility, plus a state-of-the-art rear-view camera displayed on a panoramic screen above the windscreen. There is also adaptive LED lighting, a photovoltaic roof which uses sunlight to generate battery power, and advanced GPS tracking. The Vision can also automatically adjust its tyre pressures, according to the weight of the load it's carrying, to deliver optimum road-holding and fuel-efficiency. Designed with delivery drivers in mind, Vision uses a fully automatic system for load management based on a series of sensors which identify the goods being loaded and then indicate the correct positioning of these within the loadspace, triggering air-bag style containment devices which prevent the movement of larger packages. As well as protecting valuable goods from damage, this improved space management makes loading and unloading faster, leading to obvious efficiency gains for the operator. The driver manages the full suite of on-board technology via a high-integration touchscreen device, which communicates seamlessly with the on-board electronics. The forward-thinking Iveco Vision is the product of Iveco’s close partnership-working with firms including Bosch, Dainese, Brembo, Streparava, Arcelor Mittal, CRF, Denso, FPT, Sole, Trucklite, Xperion, ZF, Comftech, Essence and ST Microelectronics. Iveco Iveco is a brand of CNH Industrial N.V., a World leader in Capital Goods listed on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE: CNHI) and on the Mercato Telematico Azionario of the Borsa Italiana (MI: CNHI).

Concordia Maritime’s IMOIIMAX tanker Stena Image named in Guangzhou

Stena Image Photo: Kristofer Hultén “The delivery of the Stena Image marks the beginning of a new era for Concordia Maritime. We already have a high-quality and well-balanced fleet, but with the addition of the IMOIIMAX vessels, which are the next generation of chemical and product tankers, our offer will be even more sophisticated and attractive in tomorrow’s exciting product tanker market”, says Kim Ullman, CEO of Concordia Maritime, in a comment. Godmother, Selma Olsson Åkefeldt, MD PhD. Photo: Kristofer Hultén More than a hundred guests had gathered in a rainy Guangzhou on the south coast of China to attend the naming ceremony for the Stena Image. The vessel’s godmother, Selma Olsson Åkefeldt, MD, PhD, the daughter of Dan Sten Olsson, the Stena group’s principal owner, named the vessel and finished with the words: “May God bless and protect all who sail on her”. Now the tanker, with Captain Jaroslaw Aniszewski and his crew on board, has left the shipyard in Guangzhou to sail, as planned, on her maiden voyage from the Far East to Europe.“The IMOIIMAX concept is based on what is already a well-established commercial reality where there is now an even greater focus on cargo flexibility and lower energy consumption, two factors that are a guarantee for both commercial and technical success”, adds Kim Ullman. Management and representatives from Concordia Maritime,Stena and GSI together with the captain. Photo: Kristofer Hultén Stena Teknik together with the shipyard GSI have implemented a large number of innovative solutions that have, among other things, enabled fuel consumption, when sailing at service speed, to be reduced 10-20% compared with other vessels of the same size. Additionally, the vessels have 18 different tanks of 3,000 cbm each so that they can transport full IMO2 cargoes and combine both vegetable oils, chemicals and petroleum products. This results in very logistic flexibility.Another sister vessel and Concordia Maritime-owned tanker, the Stena Important, is expected to be delivered in October 2015. The order for the two IMOIIMAX tankers was placed in 2012 and represents a total investment of approx. MUSD 78. Both IMOIIMAX tankers will sail in Stena Weco’s global logistics systems, which already employ some 60 vessels. http://www.stenaweco.com/ Some of the technical solutions that will result in more efficient energy consumption and greater logistic flexibility: · Main engine auto-tuning · More efficient boiler with recovery from multiple heat sources · Recovery of propeller energy loss · Aerodynamic design of the accommodation and bridge · All cargo tanks are designed to accept any type of cargo the vessel can transport · Effective tank-cleaning system For more information on the technical solutions listed above, go to http://news.cision.com/concordia-maritime/r/concordia-maritime-takes-delivery-of-the-next-generation-of-chemical-and-product-tankers,c9752577 Technical data for an IMOIIMAX tanker:Length: 183 metres; beam: 32 metres; deadweight: 50,000 tonsFor additional material, see Concordia Maritime’s website: www.concordiamaritime.comFor further information, please contact:Kim UllmanPresidentConcordia MaritimeTel: +46 31 855003Mobile: +46 704 855003E-mail: kim.ullman@concordiamaritime.comConcordia Maritime is an international tanker shipping company.

Work starts on new £6million cheese production unit at South Caernarfon Creameries

The new facility is planned to be fully operational by October 2015 and over the next five years will enable the farmer co-operative to almost double production capability, increasing cheese production from the current level of 9,000 tonnes per annum to 17,000 tonnes. The new production unit will be best in its class, efficient and flexible and will support South Caernarfon Creameries’ growth strategy with both existing and new customers as well as exports. Current cheese production will not be affected by the new-build as the existing production unit will continue to be used until the new facility is fully operational. Local businesses will benefit from the expansion, for example, the building contract has been awarded to local company Derwen Llyn of Pwllheli.  Alan Wyn Jones, Managing Director at South Caernarfon Creameries said “Although it’s currently a very challenging period for milk producers and processors, this is a very exciting period for our business. Our investment will result in the first new cheese factory build in the UK since the 1970’s and will provide us with best in class production facilities that will further support our growth and added value strategy.” South Caernarfon Creameries is owned by its 120 farmer member suppliers. John Gwynant Hughes, of Ynysgain Fawr, Criccieth, one of its farmer members commented “We are proud supplying members and owners of SCC and are pleased that the business is forward-thinking and investing in our future which gives us as dairy farmers’ confidence in what is a very challenging period for our industry”.   

Toscana Resort Castelfalfi is proud to present  its new Website with Online-shop and Pressroom

First settled by the Etruscans about 2,500 years ago, Castelfalfi came into its own with the rise of Florence in the 13th century, when its castle and much of the current village were built. Sadly, the village was pillaged during the  Florence-Siena war in 1554, but had another prosperous period in the 18th century as a Municipality under the peaceful administration of Montaione.The village also seemed fated for success at the beginning of the 20th century when a tobacco factory was built, bringing roads to the village. However, the rural exodus of the 1960s took with it all but five residents and in the early 1980s Castelfalfi was put up for sale by local authorities. Despite international interest, Castelfalfi remained a dormant sleeping beauty until 2007, when European based tourist company TUI AG acquired the village and surrounding 2,700-acre estate with a vision of reviving the village in the most authentic way possible and transforming Castelfalfi into one of Italy’s finest leisure and vacation destinations. Like a fairy god mother with a magic wand (or a prince with solid financing), TUI AG has breathed new life into Castelfalfi. The tobacco factory is now a hotel and the castle and village are being artfully restored to incorporate leisure, retail and residential components while remaining true to the ancient architectural styles and local traditions. Wherever possible, original features are being maintained. For example, in some cases, original bricks have been removed and re-laid to ensure an authentic rebuilding, and in one case, a whole tile roof was carefully removed, insulation and weather protection were installed, and the original tiles were re-set. TUI AG also is determined to retain the rural character of the region, so only 0,03 percent of the land is being developed. When complete, Toscana Resort Castelfalfi will provide visitors with the chance to experience an authentic slice of Tuscany while enjoying the services of a resort. Life at Castelfalfi will center on the village, where the ancient buildings will house apartments, a boutique hotel, shops, restaurants and cafes, and Il Castello (the Castle), which will delight visitors with an upmarket Tuscan restaurant, bar and other amenities. The concept is well on its way to being realized. Today, visitors can dine at Trattoria Il Rosmarino, stay at the boutique Hotel La Tabaccaia, and enjoy the public swimming pool and gym as well as extensive hiking and biking trails. The world-class 18 hole Mountain Course and new 9-hole Lake Course are also in full swing. And within an hour of Castelfalfi, guests can explore the Renaissance and Medieval cities of Tuscany, from Siena and Lucca to Florence and Pisa, and then return to their fairytale village, complete with its own 800-year-old ancient castle.

Tenuta di  Castelfalfi: Hunting Reserve

Located in the hills of central Tuscany in an uncontaminated environment, rich in history, art and culture, the Azienda Agrituristico Venatoria (hunting reserve) of Castelfalfi offers a real challenge for hunters who can test their skills in an extremely diversified territory where the game is "flushed out" with excellent flaying devices and is certainly not an easy kill. We also have areas for training pointing dogs and two enclosures for training wild boar hounds. The Agrituristico Venatoria of Castelfalfi has enclosures for hunting ungulates with a total surface area of 250 hectares. The typically hilly environment, with Turkey oak and Holm oak forests interspersed with open meadows and grazing lands, helps make the anticipation of hunting even more exciting. Wild boar hunting excursions are carried out from September to mid-March inside two hunting enclosures.  There is a fenced off area of 10 hectares, ideal for small hunting excursions – with a minimum of 5 and maximum of 13 participants – and a 60-hectare area for larger hunts   – with a minimum of 17 and maximum of 30 participants – where it is possible to run whole packs of dogs thanks to the wide expanses and environmental diversification of the enclosure. Moreover, inside a 100-hectare enclosure it is possible to hunt ungulates from elevated blinds or by stalking, thus offering more experienced hunters the chance to test their skills with shots from up to 300 metres away. In order to meet our clients' demands, we also organise personalised hunts in line with the requirements of the individual groups. Permanet game Hunting of permanent game (pheasants, partridge, red partridge and quail) is carried out over a surface area of 350 hectares divided into five different zones. The large areas enable hunters to exploit their own hunting zone in a relaxed manner. Hunting of non-migratory fauna (pheasants, partridges and quail) is carried out over a surface area of 350 hectares divided into 5 different zones and thanks to the presence of two magnificent lakes inside the reserve duck hunting can also be organised. The large areas enable hunters to exploit their own hunting zone in a relaxed manner.  The presence of at least three hunters is obligatory in each hunting zone with the introduction of three animals a head. The reserve now has an enchanted spot where you can breathe in the charm of the past and where nature and traditions have remained intact over the years. Casale Falecine is a splendid hunting lodge for use by hunters who can have lunch and rest there after the hunt. Dog Training Area At the end of the hunting season it is also possible to hunt with pointing dogs inside the dog training area. In fact, we have areas set up for training pointing dogs (with or without shooting) as well as the two following enclosures for training wild boar hounds: a large 60-hectare enclosure where six hounds can enter at a time; a smaller 10-hectare enclosure in which a maximum of three hounds are admitted at a time. Upon request, the Azienda Agrituristico Venatoria of Castelfalfi is also able to provide guests with the services of qualified trainers registered with the ENCI (Italian Kennel Club) who can offer advice and correct small defects, as well as carry out real training.

While Axis is continuing to strengthen the offering with new innovative network cameras, we are also continuing to broaden our product portfolio with complementary innovations and advanced versions of our different software solutions directed towards small and medium-sized installations. The recruitment rate remained high in early 2015 and the number of employees increased by 78 persons. The growth rate during the quarter was negatively impacted by a turbulent macroeconomic situation in several of Axis’ markets. We are also continuing to note low inventory levels at larger distributors. The fire at the Thai production unit in November caused supply disruptions of certain products. This had a more negative impact on sales during the quarter than we previously estimated. On February 10, Canon made a public offer to Axis’ shareholders of SEK 340 per share. The acceptance period ran from March 3 to April 1. On April 8, Canon announced that it completes the offer and that the acceptance period was being extended until April 21. Further information about the offer is available on Axis’ website. We will continue to develop our offering. The market for network surveillance still has great potential and Axis has a clear ambition to strengthen its market-leading position by developing the partner network, attracting skilled employees and releasing leading security solutions.” Ray Mauritsson, President For more information, please contact:Johan Lundin, Manager, Investor RelationsTelephone: + 46 (0)46-272 18 00E-mail: IR@axis.com.

RESOLUTIONS PROPOSED BY THE NOMINATION COMMITTEE Election of Chairman of the Annual General Meeting (item 2) The Nomination Committee proposes that the lawyer Wilhelm Lüning is elected to be the Chairman of the Annual General Meeting. Determination of the number of members of the Board and election of the members of the Board and the Chairman of the Board (items 13 and 15) The Nomination Committee proposes that the Board shall consist of eight members. The Nomination Committee proposes that Mike Parton, Lorenzo Grabau, Irina Hemmers, Mia Brunell Livfors, Erik Mitteregger, Carla Smits-Nusteling and Mario Zanotti shall be re-elected as members of the Board, and that Eamonn O’Hare shall be elected as new member of the Board. The Nomination Committee proposes that Mike Parton shall be re-elected as Chairman of the Board. Determination of the remuneration to the members of the Board and the auditor (item 14) The Nomination Committee proposes that SEK 1,430,000 is to be allocated to the Chairman of the Board and SEK 550,000 to each of the other members of the Board. For work within the Committees of the Board, the Nomination Committee proposes a total of SEK 724,000 of which for work within the Audit Committee SEK 210,000 shall be allocated to the Chairman and SEK 105,000 to each of the other three members. For work within the Remuneration Committee SEK 79,000 shall be allocated to the Chairman and SEK 40,000 to each of the other three members. The proposed increase in remuneration is equivalent to an approximate increase of 5 percent for each Board member as well as each member of the Committees of the Board. As a result of the proposed increase, the total remuneration to the Board for the period until the close of the next Annual General Meeting will increase from SEK 5,729,000 to SEK 6,004,000. The Nomination Committee is of the opinion that the proposed increase is reasonable, in light of the principally unchanged remuneration levels over the past years, the increased activity of the Board and its Committees in working to oversee the Company’s audit and remuneration work, as well as the active management of the Company’s portfolio of operations. The Nomination Committee further notes that the proposed remuneration to the Board is in line with the remuneration to the Boards of its Swedish and international peers. The Nomination Committee proposes that remuneration to the auditor shall be paid in accordance with approved invoices. Approval of the procedure of the Nomination Committee (item 16) The Nomination Committee proposes that the work of preparing proposals to the 2016 Annual General Meeting regarding the Board and auditor, in the case that an auditor should be elected, and their remuneration, Chairman of the Annual General Meeting and the procedure for the Nomination Committee shall be performed by a Nomination Committee. The Nomination Committee will be formed during September 2015 in consultation with the largest shareholders of the Company as per 31 August 2015. The Nomination Committee will consist of at least three members appointed by the largest shareholders of the Company who have wished to appoint a member. The Chairman of the Board will also be a member of the Committee and will act as its convenor. The members of the Committee will appoint the Committee Chairman at their first meeting. The Nomination Committee is appointed for a term of office commencing at the time of its formation and ending when a new Nomination Committee is formed. If a member resigns during the Committee term, the Nomination Committee can choose to appoint a new member. The shareholder that appointed the resigning member shall be asked to appoint a new member, provided that the shareholder still is one of the largest shareholders in the Company. If that shareholder declines participation on the Nomination Committee, the Committee can choose to ask the next largest qualified shareholder to participate. In the event of changes to the ownership structure of the Company, the Committee can choose to change its composition in order to ensure the Committee reflects the ownership of the Company. However, unless there are special circumstances, the composition of the Nomination Committee may remain unchanged following changes in the ownership structure of the Company that are either minor or occur less than three months prior to the 2016 Annual General Meeting. In all cases, the Nomination Committee shall consist of at least three members appointed by shareholders. The Nomination Committee shall have the right to upon request receive personnel resources such as secretarial services from the Company, and to charge the Company with costs for recruitment consultants and related travel if deemed necessary. Information with respect to the election of auditor The registered accounting firm Deloitte AB was elected auditor at the 2012 Annual General Meeting for a term of office of four years. Accordingly, the task of appointing an auditor is scheduled to occur at the 2016 Annual General Meeting. Deloitte AB has appointed the authorised public accountant Thomas Strömberg as auditor-in-charge. RESOLUTIONS PROPOSED BY THE BOARD Dividend (item 11) The Board proposes an ordinary dividend of SEK 4.85 per share and an extraordinary dividend of SEK 10.00 per share, i.e. a total dividend of SEK 14.85 per share. The record date for dividend is proposed to be on Thursday 21 May 2015. If the Annual General Meeting resolves in accordance with the proposal the dividend is estimated to be paid out to the shareholders on Tuesday 26 May 2015. Guidelines for remuneration to senior executives (item 17) The Board proposes the following guidelines for determining remuneration for senior executives. The objectives of Tele2’s remuneration guidelines are to offer competitive remuneration packages to attract, motivate, and retain key employees within the context of an international peer group. The aim is to create incentives for the management to execute strategic plans and deliver excellent operating results, and to align management’s incentives with the interests of the shareholders. Senior executives covered by the proposed guidelines include the CEO and members of the Leadership Team ("senior executives"). Remuneration to the senior executives should comprise annual base salary, and variable short-term incentive (STI) and long-term incentive (LTI) programs. The STI shall be based on the performance in relation to established objectives. The objectives shall be related to the company's overall result and the senior executives’ individual performance. The STI can amount to a maximum of 100 percent of the annual base salary. Over time, it is the intention of the Board to increase the proportion of variable performance-based compensation as a component of the senior executives’ total compensation. The Board is continually considering the need of imposing restrictions in the STI program by making payments, or a proportion thereof, of such variable compensation conditional on whether the performance on which it was based has proved to be sustainable over time, and/or allowing the company to reclaim components of such variable compensation that have been paid on the basis of information which later proves to be manifestly misstated. Other benefits may include e.g. company car and for expatriated senior executives e.g. housing benefits for a limited period of time. The senior executives may also be offered health care insurances. The senior executives are offered defined contribution pension plans. Defined contributions for pensions to the CEO can amount to a maximum of 25 percent of the annual salary (base salary and STI). For the other senior executives defined contributions for pensions can amount to a maximum of 20 percent of the senior executive's annual salary (base salary and STI). The maximum period of notice of termination of employment shall be 12 months in the event of termination by the CEO and six months in the event of termination by any of the other senior executives. In the event of termination by the company, the maximum notice period during which compensation is payable is 18 months for the CEO and 12 months for any of the other senior executives. Board members, elected at General Meetings, may in certain cases receive a fee for services performed within their respective areas of expertise, outside of their Board duties. Compensation for these services shall be paid at market terms and be approved by the Board. Under special circumstances, the Board may deviate from the above guidelines. In such a case, the Board is obligated to give account of the reason for the deviation during the following Annual General Meeting. In accordance with the Swedish Corporate Governance Code the Remuneration Committee within the Board monitors and evaluates the application of the guidelines for remuneration to the senior executives established by the Annual General Meeting. Also, the company's auditor has, pursuant to Ch 8 Sec 54 of the Companies Act (2005:551), provided a statement with respect to whether there has been compliance with the guidelines for remuneration to the senior executives which have been applied during 2014. The Boards’ evaluation and the auditor's review states that Tele2 during 2014 has complied with the guidelines for remuneration which has been adopted by the Annual General Meeting. Incentive programme (items 18(a)-(d)) The Board proposes that the Annual General Meeting resolves to adopt a retention and performance based incentive programme for senior executives and other key employees within the Tele2 group in accordance with items 18(a)-(d) below. All resolutions are proposed to be conditional upon each other and are therefore proposed to be adopted in connection with each other. Adoption of an incentive programme (item 18(a)) Summary of the programme The Board proposes that the Annual General Meeting resolves to adopt a retention and performance based incentive programme (the "Plan"), based on the same structure as last year. The Plan is proposed to include in total approximately 200 senior executives and other key employees within the Tele2 group. The participants in the Plan are in general required to hold Tele2 shares. These shares can either be shares already held or shares purchased on the market in connection with the notification to participate in the Plan. The participants will thereafter be granted free of charge retention and performance rights on the terms stipulated below. In the event delivery of shares under the Plan cannot be achieved at reasonable costs, with reasonable administrative efforts or due to market conditions, participants may instead be offered a cash-based settlement. Personal investment In order to participate in the Plan, the employees have to own Tele2 shares. These shares can either be shares already held, provided that the shares are not used as investment shares under the equity-related incentive programmes for the years 2013 or 2014, or shares purchased on the market in connection with notification to participate in the Plan. The maximum number of shares that the employee can hold under the Plan will correspond to approximately 8-14 per cent of the employee’s annual base salary as further described below. For each Tele2 share held under the Plan, the participants will be granted retention and performance rights by the company. General terms and conditions Subject to fulfilment of certain retention and performance based conditions during the period 1 April 2015 – 31 March 2018 (the "Measurement Period") and the participant maintaining at the release of the interim report January – March 2018 the invested shares and, with certain exceptions, the employment within the Tele2 group, each right entitles the participant to receive one Tele2 Class B share. In order to align the participants’ and the shareholders’ interests, the company will compensate the participants for any dividends paid on the underlying share by increasing the number of shares that each retention and performance right entitles to at the end of the vesting period. It can be noted that the participants in the Plan will not be compensated for ordinary and extra ordinary dividend proposed at the Annual General Meeting 2015. Retention and performance conditions The rights are divided into Series A (retention rights) and Series B and C (performance rights). The number of shares the respective participant will receive depends on which category the participant belongs to and on the fulfilment of the following defined retention and performance based conditions: Series A          Tele2’s total shareholder return on the share (TSR) during the Measurement Period exceeding 0 per cent as entry level. Series B         Tele2’s average normalised return of capital employed (ROCE) during the Measurement Period being at least 9 per cent as entry level and at least 12 per cent as the stretch target. Series C         Tele2’s total shareholder return on the shares (TSR) during the Measurement Period being equal to the average TSR for a peer group comprising Elisa, Iliad, Millicom International Cellular, TalkTalk Telecom Group, Telenor, TeliaSonera and TDC as entry level, and exceeding the average TSR for the peer group with 10 percentage points as the stretch target. The determined levels of the conditions include an “entry” level and a “stretch” target with a linear interpolation applied between those levels as regards the number of rights that vest. The entry level constitutes the minimum level which must be reached in order to enable vesting of the rights in the relevant series. If the entry level is reached, the number of rights that vests is proposed to be 100 per cent for Series A and 20 per cent for Series B and C. If the entry level is not reached for a certain series, all retention or performance rights (as applicable) in that series lapse. If stretch target for Series B and Series C is met, all retention or performance rights (as applicable) vest in the relevant series. The Board intends to disclose the outcome of the retention and performance based conditions in the annual report for the financial year 2018. Retention and performance rights                            The retention and performance rights shall be governed by the following terms and conditions: ·Granted free of charge after the Annual General Meeting 2015. ·Vest three years after grant (vesting period). ·May not be transferred or pledged. ·Each right entitles the participant to receive one Tele2 Class B share after the three year vesting period, if the participant, with certain exceptions, maintains the employment within the Tele2 group and the invested shares at the release of the interim report for the period January – March 2018. · In order to align the participants’ and the shareholders’ interests, the company will compensate the participants for any dividends paid by increasing the number of Class B shares that each retention and performance right entitles to at the end of the vesting period. It can be noted that the participants in the Plan will not be compensated for ordinary and extra ordinary dividend proposed at the Annual General Meeting 2015. Preparation and administration The Board, or a committee established by the Board for these purposes, shall be responsible for preparing the detailed terms and conditions of the Plan, in accordance with the mentioned terms and guidelines. To this end, the Board shall be entitled to make adjustments to meet foreign regulations or market conditions. The Board may also make other adjustments if significant changes in the Tele2 group or its operating environment would result in a situation where the decided terms and conditions of the Plan no longer serve their purpose. The Board’s possibility to make such adjustments does not include the grant of continued participation for senior executives in the company’s long-term incentive programmes after the termination of their respective employments. Allocation In total, the Plan is estimated to comprise up to 320,000 Tele2 shares held by the participants entitling to allotment of up to 1,476,000 rights whereof 320,000 retention rights and 1,156,000 performance rights. The participants are divided into different categories and in accordance with the above, the Plan will comprise the following number of shares and maximum number of rights for the different categories: ·the CEO: may acquire up to 8,500 shares within the Plan, entitling the holder to allotment of 1 Series A right and 3.5 rights each of Series B and C per invested share, which entitles the holder to receive a maximum of 8,500 Series A rights and 29,750 rights each of Series B and C; ·senior executives and certain key employees (approximately 12 individuals): may acquire up to 4,500 shares each within the Plan, entitling the holder to allotment of 1 Series A right and 3 rights each of Series B and C per invested share, which entitles the holder to receive a maximum of 4,500 Series A rights and 13,500 rights each of Series B and C; ·category 1 (approximately 44 individuals in total): may acquire up to 2,000 shares each within the Plan, entitling the holder to allotment of 1 Series A right and 1.5 rights each of Series B and C per invested share, which entitles the holder to receive a maximum of 2,000 Series A rights and 3,000 rights each of Series B and C; ·category 2 (approximately 53 individuals in total): may acquire up to 1,500 shares each within the Plan, entitling the holder to allotment of 1 Series A right and 1.5 rights each of Series B and C per invested share, which entitles the holder to receive a maximum of 1,500 Series A rights and 2,250 rights each of Series B and C; and · category 3 (approximately 90 individuals in total): may acquire up to 1,000 shares each within the Plan, entitling the holder to allotment of 1 Series A right and 1.5 rights each of Series B and C per invested share, which entitles the holder to receive a maximum of 1,000 Series A rights and 1,500 rights each of Series B and C. Scope and costs of the Plan The Plan will be accounted for in accordance with IFRS 2 which stipulates that the rights should be recorded as a personnel expense in the income statement during the vesting period. Based on the assumptions of a share price of SEK 88.25 (closing share price of the Tele2 Class B shares on 31 March 2015 of SEK 103.10 less deduction for the proposed ordinary and extra ordinary dividend of SEK 4.85 per share and SEK 10 per share), a maximum participation, an annual employee turnover of 7 per cent among the participants of the Plan, an average fulfilment of performance conditions of approximately 50 per cent, and full vesting of retention rights, the cost for the Plan, excluding social security costs, is estimated to approximately SEK 53 million. The cost will be allocated over the years 2015-2018. At a 100 per cent fulfilment of the performance conditions the cost is approximately SEK 70 million. Social security costs will also be recorded as a personnel expense in the income statement by current reservations. The social security costs are estimated to around SEK 29 million with the assumptions above, an average social security tax rate of 33 per cent and an annual share price increase for Tele2’s Class B shares is 10 per cent during the vesting period. The participant’s maximum profit per right in the Plan is limited to SEK 329, which equals four times the average closing share price of the Tele2 Class B shares during February 2015 with deduction for the proposed ordinary and extra ordinary dividend. If the value of the Tele2 Class B shares exceeds SEK 329 at vesting, the number of Class B shares that each right entitles the participant to receive will be reduced correspondingly. The maximum dilution is up to 0.40 per cent of outstanding shares, 0.29 per cent of votes and 0.22 per cent in terms of costs for the Plan as defined in IFRS 2 divided by Tele2’s market capitalisation, excluding the ordinary and extra ordinary dividend proposed to the Annual General Meeting 2015. Together with rights granted under the shares based incentive programmes for the years 2012, 2013 and 2014, the maximum dilution is up to 1.10 per cent of outstanding shares and 0.78 per cent of votes. If the maximum profit of SEK 329 per right is reached, all invested shares are retained under the Plan and a fulfilment of the performance conditions of 100 per cent, the maximum cost of the Plan as defined in IFRS 2 is approximately SEK 86 million and the maximum social security cost is approximately SEK 160 million. For information on Tele2’s other equity-related incentive programmes, reference is made to the annual report for 2014, note 34. Effect on key ratios If the Plan had been introduced in 2014 with the assumptions above, the impact on basic earnings per share would have resulted in a dilution of 0.3 per cent or from SEK 5.86 to SEK 5.84 on a pro forma basis. The annual cost of the Plan including financing costs and social charges is estimated to approximately SEK 29 million given the above assumptions. This cost can be related to the company’s total personnel costs, including social charges, of SEK 3,117 million in 2014. Delivery of shares under the Plan To ensure the delivery of Tele2 Class B shares under the Plan as well as other outstanding equity-related incentive programmes, the Board proposes that the Annual General Meeting resolves to authorise the Board to resolve on a directed issue of Class C shares to Nordea Bank AB (publ) in accordance with item 18(b), and further to authorise the Board to subsequently resolve to repurchase the Class C shares from Nordea Bank AB (publ) in accordance with item 18(c). The Class C shares will then be held by the company, whereafter the appropriate number of Class C shares will be reclassified into Class B shares and subsequently be delivered to the participants under the Plan as well other outstanding equity-related incentive programmes. The Board further proposes that the Annual General Meeting resolves that a maximum of 1,800,000 Class B shares may be transferred to the participants in accordance with the terms of the Plan. These shares can either be Class B treasury shares held by the company or Class B shares held by the company after reclassification from Class C shares. The rationale for the proposal The objective of the proposed Plan is to create conditions for retaining competent employees in the Tele2 group. The Plan has been designed based on the view that it is desirable that senior executives and other key employees within the group are shareholders in the company. Participation in the Plan requires a personal investment in Tele2 shares, be it shares already held or shares purchased on the market in connection with the Plan. By offering an allotment of performance rights which are based on profits and other retention and performance based conditions, the participants are rewarded for increased shareholder value. Further, the Plan rewards employees’ loyalty and long-term value growth in the company. Against this background, the Board is of the opinion that the adoption of the Plan as set out above will have a positive effect on the Tele2 group’s future development and thus be beneficial for both the company and its shareholders. Preparation Tele2’s Remuneration Committee has prepared this Plan in consultation with external advisors and major shareholders. The Plan has been reviewed by the Board at board meetings during the end of 2014 and the first months of 2015. The above proposal is supported by major shareholders. Authorisation to issue Class C shares (item 18 (b)) The Board proposes that the Annual General Meeting resolves to authorise the Board, during the period until the Annual General Meeting 2016, to increase the company’s share capital by not more than SEK 2,875,000 by the issue of not more than 2,300,000 Class C shares, each with a ratio value of SEK 1.25. With disapplication of the shareholders' preferential rights, Nordea Bank AB (publ) shall be entitled to subscribe for the new Class C shares at a subscription price corresponding to the ratio value of the shares. The purpose of the authorisation and the reason for the disapplication of the shareholders' preferential rights in connection with the issue of shares is to ensure delivery of Class B shares to participants under the Plan as well as other outstanding equity-related incentive programmes. Authorisation to resolve to repurchase own Class C shares (item 18(c)) The Board proposes that the Annual General Meeting resolves to authorise the Board, during the period until the Annual General Meeting 2016, to repurchase its own Class C shares. The repurchase may only be effected through a public offer directed to all holders of Class C shares and shall comprise all outstanding Class C shares. The purchase may be effected at a purchase price corresponding to not less than SEK 1.25 and not more than SEK 1.35 per share. Payment for the Class C shares shall be made in cash. The purpose of the repurchase is to ensure the delivery of Class B shares under the Plan as well as other outstanding equity-related incentive programmes. Transfer of own Class B shares (item 18(d)) The Board proposes that the Annual General Meeting resolves that Class C shares that the company purchases by virtue of the authorisation to repurchase its own Class C shares in accordance with item 18(c) above, following reclassification into Class B shares, may be transferred to participants in the Plan as well as participants in other outstanding equity-related incentive programmes in accordance with the approved terms. The Board further proposes that the Annual General Meeting resolves that a maximum of 1,800,000 Class B shares may be transferred to participants in accordance with the terms of the Plan. These shares can either be Class B treasury shares held by the company or Class B shares held by the company after reclassification from Class C shares.

SKF to build test centre in Germany

Gothenburg, 16 April 2015: SKF is investing in the construction of a large-size bearing (LSB) test centre in Schweinfurt, Germany. The investment, which totals SEK 360 million, is being supported by both the German Government and State of Bavaria, who are contributing SEK 28 million in funding. The test centre will have two LSB test rigs; one for testing bearings used in wind turbine main shafts and one for applications across a wider scope of industries, including marine, mining, construction and steel. The former will be able to test bearings with an outer ring diameter of up to six metres, with extreme bending moments and dynamic loading conditions. The bearing test rig dedicated to the wind energy segment will be the first in the world capable of testing single rotor bearings as well as mainshaft bearing arrangements in a realistic application environment. Utilizing original customer components, engineers will be able to better tailor SKF’s bearings to customer’s exact needs. The other test rig offers unique capabilities to improve simulation tools that support large-size bearing development and tailoring solutions for a variety of industries. Bernd Stephan, Senior Vice President, Group Technology Development, says, “This investment reinforces our focus on generating value for customers through application-specific solutions that improve bearing performance and efficiency. We are very pleased and grateful for the support provided by the German and Bavarian State Governments in this project.” “This new facility will significantly cut the length of time the testing process takes, reducing associated energy consumption and CO2 emissions. Recycling residual heat from both test rigs will also contribute to lower energy usage.” Construction of the bearing test centre will commence during the summer of 2015 and is expected to be completed during the first half of 2017.

RESOLUTIONS PROPOSED BY THE BOARD Treatment of the company's result (item 11) The Board proposes that the retained earnings and the share premium reserve and the result for the year, a total of SEK 1,016,476,743.51 is to be carried forward. Guidelines for remuneration to senior executives (item 17) The Board proposes the following guidelines for remuneration to senior executives in the Qliro Group as well as Members of the Board (of the parent company), to the extent they are remunerated outside their directorship. Remuneration guidelines Qliro Group shall strive to offer a total remuneration which will enable the group to attract, motivate and retain senior executives in competition with Qliro Group's international peers, which primarily are Nordic companies operating within e-commerce and retailing with consumer brands and products, as well as consumer credit financing and payment solutions. The remuneration to the senior executives in Qliro Group shall both short-term and long-term reflect the individual's performance and responsibility and the results in Qliro Group, inclusive of its subsidiaries, and shall also be designed so that it aligns the senior executives' interest and rewards with the shareholders'. Therefore, the remuneration to the senior executives shall be based on the pay for performance principle and encourage them to build up a significant private ownership of Qliro Group shares (in relation to their personal financial conditions). The remuneration to the senior executives shall consist of: · fixed salary, · short-term variable remuneration paid in cash, · the possibility of participation in long-term share or share-price related incentive programs, and · pensions and other customary benefits. Fixed salary The senior executives' fixed salary is revised each year and shall be competitive and based on the individual's competence, responsibilities and performance. Variable remuneration The senior executives' variable remuneration paid in cash shall be based on fulfillment of established targets for their areas of responsibility and for Qliro Group and its subsidiaries, respectively. The outcome shall be linked to measurable targets (qualitative, quantitative, general and individual). The targets within the senior executives' respective area of responsibility are defined to promote Qliro Group's development both in the short and long-term. The maximum payment of cash based variable remuneration shall generally not exceed a maximum of 100 percent of the senior executive's annual fixed salary. The Board may resolve that part of the variable remuneration paid in cash shall be invested in shares or share-related instruments in Qliro Group. Share and share-price related incentive plans shall be linked to certain pre-determined financial and / or share or share-price related performance criteria and shall be designed to ensure a long-term commitment to the value growth of Qliro Group and its subsidiaries and align the senior executives' interests and rewards with the shareholders'. Pension and other benefits Pension commitments will be secured through premiums paid to insurance companies. Under normal circumstances the retirement age is 65 years. Other benefits shall be customary and facilitate that the senior executives can carry-out their duties. Other benefits that may be offered are for example a company car, company health care and health care insurance. Notice of termination and severance pay The maximum notice period in any senior executive's contract is generally twelve months, and in exceptional cases, eighteen months, during which time salary payment will continue. Compensation to Board members Board members, elected at General Meetings, may in certain cases receive a fee for services performed within their respective areas of expertise, outside of their Board duties. Compensation for these services shall be paid at market terms and be approved by the Board. Deviations from the guidelines The Board may, if it considers that special circumstances are at hand, deviate from the guidelines. In such a case the Board shall explain the reason for the deviation at the following Annual General Meeting. Evaluation of the guidelines and auditor's statement with respect to the compliance with the guidelines In accordance with the Swedish Corporate Governance Code the Remuneration Committee of the Board monitors and evaluates the application of the guidelines for remuneration to the senior executives established by the Annual General Meeting. Also, the company's auditor, pursuant to Ch 8 Sec 54 of the Swedish Companies Act, has provided a statement with respect to whether there has been compliance with the guidelines for remuneration to the senior executives which have been applied during 2014. The evaluation and auditor's review have resulted in the conclusion that during 2014 the guidelines adopted by the Annual General Meeting have been followed by Qliro Group. Incentive plans (item 18) The Board proposes that the Annual General Meeting resolves to adopt new long-term share-related incentive plans (the "LTIP 2015"). The LTIP 2015 comprises: (a)    a long-term performance share plan (the "PSP") with a similar structure as the long-term incentive plans adopted in 2011-2014; and (b)   a synthetic call option plan based on the underlying value growth in Qliro Group's subsidiaries/business units (the "Synthetic Call Option Plan"). Furthermore, the Board proposes that the Annual General Meeting resolves on alternative hedging methods for delivering shares to the participants in accordance with item 19. The maximum dilution under LTIP 2015 is 1.5 per cent in terms of shares and votes outstanding in Qliro Group. LTIP 2015 has been prepared by the Remuneration Committee together with external advisors and adopted by the Board. For a description of the company's other share or share-price related incentive plans, reference is made to the annual report for 2014, note 24, and the company's website, www.qlirogroup.com. Adoption of a performance share plan for senior executives and key employees in Qliro Group (item 18(a)) The motives for the proposal The objective of the proposed PSP is to create conditions to recruit and retain high performing employees in the Group. The PSP has been designed based on the view that it is desirable that senior executives and other key employees within the Qliro Group are shareholders. Against this background, the Board is of the opinion that the adoption of the PSP as set out above will have a positive effect on the Qliro Group's future development and thus be beneficial for both Qliro Group and its shareholders. Participants The PSP is proposed to in total include 51 senior executives and other key employees in the Qliro Group. Personal investment In order to participate in the PSP, the employees must make a personal investment in Qliro Group shares ("Saving Shares"). The Saving Shares can either be Qliro Group shares already held by the participant, which are not allocated to ongoing incentive plans, or shares purchased on the market in connection with the notification to participate in the PSP. If the employee has insider information which prevents him/her from purchasing Qliro Group shares in connection with the notification to participate in the PSP, the Saving Shares shall be purchased as soon as possible, but prior to the next Annual General Meeting. Senior executives and other key persons in the parent company (8 persons) can allocate Saving Shares to the PSP that correspond to a value of up to 10 per cent of their annual base salary and the senior executives and key persons working in the subsidiaries of the group (43 persons) can allocate Saving Shares to the PSP that correspond to a value of up to 3 per cent of their annual base salary. Additionally, the key persons working in the subsidiaries of the Qliro Group will be invited to participate in the proposed Synthetic Call Option Plan with up to 7 per cent of their annual base salary, i.e. their personal investment in LTIP 2015 may, at the most, be 10 per cent of their annual base salary. For each Saving Share, Qliro Group will allot retention and performance based rights to the participants free of charge, and, to the CEO and the senior executives, performance based employee stock options. General terms Subject to fulfilment of certain retention and performance based conditions during the period 1 April 2015 – 31 March 2018 (the "Measurement Period"), each retention right and performance right will entitle the participant to receive one ordinary share free of charge and each employee stock option will entitle the participant to purchase one ordinary share at a price corresponding to 120 per cent of the market value of the share at the time of the grant of the employee stock option. The right to finally be awarded shares is also dependant on the participant retaining the Saving Shares, and, with certain exceptions, continued his/her employment in Qliro Group during the vesting period ending at the release of the interim report for the period January-March 2018. Performance conditions The rights and the employee stock options are divided into Series A (retention rights) and Series B (performance rights and employee stock options). The number of shares that the participant will be allotted under the rights and will acquire under the employee stock options is depending both on which category the participant belongs to and on the fulfilment of the following defined retention and performance based conditions: Series A         The total shareholder return (TSR) of Qliro Group's ordinary share during the Measurement Period exceeding 0 per cent as entry level. Series B         The annual average total shareholder return (TSR) of Qliro Group's ordinary share during the Measurement Period reaching 10 per cent as entry level and reaching or exceeding 20 per cent as the stretch target. For Series B a linear interpolation will be applied between entry level and stretch target as regards the number of rights and employee stock options that vests. The entry level constitutes the minimum level which must be reached in order to enable vesting of the rights and employee stock options in that series. If the entry level is reached, the number of rights and employee stock options (as applicable) that vest is proposed to be 100 per cent for Series A and 20 per cent for Series B. If a stretch target is met, all rights and employee stock options remain exercisable in Series B. If the entry level is not reached, all rights and employee stock options (as applicable) in that series lapse. The Board intends to disclose the outcome of the PSP in the Annual Report 2018. Retention rights and performance rights In addition, the retention rights and performance rights shall be governed by the following terms and conditions: · Allotted free of charge after the Annual General Meeting 2015. · May not be transferred or pledged. · Dividends paid on the Qliro Group share will increase the number of shares that each retention right and performance right entitles to in order to align the shareholders' and the participants' interests. · Shares are allotted following the release of Qliro Group's interim report for the period January-March 2018. Employee Stock Options In addition, the employee stock options shall be governed by the following terms and conditions: · Allotted free of charge after the Annual General Meeting 2015. · May not be transferred or pledged. · No entitlement to compensation for dividend on the Qliro Group share under the term of the employee stock option. · Each employee stock option entitles the participant to acquire one ordinary share in the company. The exercise price shall be 120 per cent of the market value of the share at the time the employee stock option is allotted. · May be exercised during April/May and August 2018. Preparation and administration The Board, or the Remuneration Committee, shall be responsible for preparing the detailed terms and conditions of the PSP, in accordance with the mentioned terms and guidelines. To this end, the Board shall be entitled to make adjustments to the PSP to meet foreign regulations or market conditions. The Board shall also be entitled to make other adjustments, including e.g. a right to resolve on a reduced allotment of shares/right to exercise employee stock options, if material changes would occur within the Qliro Group, or on the market that according to the Board's assessment would lead to that the resolved terms and conditions for allotment of shares and/or right to exercise employee stock options under the PSP no longer fulfil the main objectives. New members of the senior management team and/or other key employees that have not yet commenced their employment at the time when notification to participate in the PSP at the latest shall be given, may, upon the condition that the employment commences during 2015, be offered to participate in the PSP, if the Board deems it to be in line with the motives for adopting the PSP. Allocation In total, the PSP is estimated to comprise up to 142,800 Saving Shares entitling to allotment of up to 1,220,800 rights and employee stock options, whereof 142,800 retention rights, 870,000 performance rights and 208,000 employee stock options. The PSP will comprise the following number of invested shares and the maximum number of rights and employee stock options: · the Chief Executive Officer of Qliro Group can allocate up to 20,000 Saving Shares. Each Saving Share entitling to allotment of 1 Series A right, 8 Series B rights and 4 Series B employee stock options; · the Chief Financial Officer of Qliro Group can allocate up to 14,000 Saving Shares. Each Saving Share entitling to allotment of 1 Series A right, 8 Series B rights and 4 Series B employee stock options; · the chief executive officers in the group's subsidiaries (6 persons) can each allocate up to 3,000 Saving Shares. Each Saving Share entitling to allotment of 1 Series A right, 8 Series B rights and 4 Series B employee stock options; · key persons in the parent company (6 persons) can each allocate up to 6,500 Saving Shares. Each Saving Share entitling to allotment of 1 Series A right and 5 Series B rights; · key persons in the group's subsidiaries (37 persons) can each allocate up to 1,400 Saving Shares. Each Saving Share entitling to allotment of 1 Series A right and 5 Series B rights. Scope and costs of the PSP The PSP will be accounted for in accordance with IFRS 2 which stipulates that the rights and employee stock options shall be recorded as a personnel expense in the income statement during the vesting period. Based on the assumptions that the share price is SEK 16.30 (closing share price of the Qliro Group's ordinary share on 19 March 2015) at the time of allocation, a maximum participation, an annual employee turnover of 10 per cent and an average fulfilment of the performance conditions of 30 per cent, the total cost, exclusive of social security costs, for the PSP is estimated to approximately SEK 2.8 million. The cost will be allocated over the years 2015 – 2018. Social security costs will also be recorded as a personnel expense in the income statement by current reservations. The social security costs are estimated to be around SEK 0.9 million with the assumptions above, an average social security tax rate of 31.42 per cent and an annual share price increase of 10 per cent on the Qliro Group share during the vesting period. Recalculation of final allotments of shares to the participants shall take place in the event of an intervening bonus issue, reversed split, split, rights issue and/or other similar events. The maximum profit for each right and each employee stock option in the PSP is SEK 50 for the CEO, CFO and the CEOs in the subsidiaries and SEK 82 for the other key persons in the parent company and the subsidiaries. If the value of Qliro Group's share at vesting or the profit at exercise of the employee stock option exceeds SEK 50 and 82, respectively, the number of shares each right entitles the participant to receive and the number of shares allocated to the participant at exercise of the employee stock options will be reduced accordingly. The maximum dilution is 1.0 per cent in terms of shares and votes outstanding and 0.1 per cent in terms of the estimated PSP cost as defined in IFRS 2 in relation to Qliro Group's market capitalisation. Assuming that a maximum gain of SEK 50 and 82, respectively, per right and employee stock option is achieved, all the participators' allocated shares remain and a 100 per cent fulfilment of the performance conditions, the maximum cost for the PSP is approximately SEK 3.8 million in accordance with IFRS 2 and the maximum cost for social charges approximately SEK 13.8 million. Effect on certain key ratios The costs and dilution are expected to have marginal effect on key ratios of the Qliro Group. The annual cost of the PSP including social charges is estimated to be approximately SEK 1.3 million based on the above assumptions. This cost can be related to the company's total personnel costs, including social charges, of SEK 408.8 million in 2014. Hedging and delivery of shares under the PSP The Board has considered two alternative hedging methods for delivering Qliro Group shares to the participants, subject to the terms and conditions of PSP; either (i) to transfer ordinary shares held by the company itself to participants, free of charge, or (ii) to enter into an agreement with a bank that will be able to, in its own name, acquire and transfer Qliro Group shares. The Board considers the first alternative as its preferred option. However, should the Annual General Meeting not approve the proposed transfer of own ordinary shares in accordance with the proposal in item 19(c), the Board may enter into a hedging arrangement with a third party to hedge the obligations of Qliro Group to deliver shares under the PSP as set out above. Regardless of method of delivery, the costs of the PSP will be charged to the income statement during the vesting period. Adoption of a synthetic call option plan for senior executives and key employees in Qliro Group subsidiaries (item 18(b)) The motives for the proposal The Board proposes, based on, among other things, the evaluation carried out by the Remuneration Committee described in the "Report according to the Swedish Corporate Governance Code, 9.1 and 10.3", a synthetic call option plan related to the value-growth in Qliro Group's subsidiaries / segments; CDON.com, Gymgrossisten, Nelly, Lekmer, Tretti and Qliro Financial Services (collectively referred to as the "Subsidiaries" and each referred to as a "Subsidiary"), to certain senior executives and key persons working in the Subsidiaries. The Synthetic Call Option Plan is expected to lead to greater commitment and increased motivation for the employees in the Subsidiaries by linking a part of their remuneration directly to the long-term value-growth of the Subsidiary in which the participant is working. The Board of Qliro Group considers that the Synthetic Call Option Plan will increase the shareholder value and benefit the opportunities to recruit, motivate and retain talented employees working in the Subsidiaries. The Synthetic Call Option Plan; the plan in brief and structure The chief executive officers (6 persons) and other key persons (37 persons) working in the Subsidiaries, in total 43 persons, will be invited to participate in the Synthetic Call Option Plan. The invitation to acquire and the agreements regarding synthetic call options will be attributable to a specific underlying Subsidiary in which the participant is employed. The value of the issued synthetic call options for each Subsidiary will amount to a maximum of approximately 1 per cent of the value of Qliro Group's shareholding in the underlying Subsidiary. The total value of the Subsidiaries may not exceed an amount corresponding to Qliro Group's market cap, i.e. the value of all outstanding shares in Qliro Group. The value of the underlying Subsidiaries will be determined through a valuation carried out by Qliro Group at launch (May-June 2015) and at close (May-June 2018 or Qliro Group's potential exit in an underlying Subsidiary) by applying recognized valuation methodologies. The valuation will be verified both by independent valuation institutes and Qliro Group's auditor. In the event that the aggregate value of the Subsidiaries, in a valuation carried out at launch, the end of the exercise period or an exit in a Subsidiary, exceeds Qliro Group's market cap, the value of each of the Subsidiaries will be reduced pro rata in order for the total value of the Subsidiaries to be equal to Qliro Group's market cap (an adjusted sum-of-the-parts valuation). In order to be able to carry out the Synthetic Call Option Plan, the Board proposes that the Annual General Meeting resolves on the following main conditions under this item 18(b). Settlement of the amount the option holders have the right to receive, subject to the terms and conditions of the Synthetic Call Option Plan, is proposed to be made in Qliro Group ordinary shares. The Board has considered two alternative hedging methods for delivering Qliro Group shares to the participants; either (i) to transfer ordinary shares held by the company itself to participants or (ii) to enter into an agreement with a bank that will be able to, in its own name, acquire and transfer Qliro Group shares. The Board considers the first alternative as its preferred option. However, should the Annual General Meeting not approve the proposed transfer of own ordinary shares in accordance with the proposal in item 19(c), the Board may enter into a hedging arrangement with a third party to hedge the obligations of Qliro Group to deliver shares under the Synthetic Call Option Plan as set out in the agreement between Qliro Group and the employee, or cash settle the synthetic call options in accordance with the plan. Main conditions for the synthetic call options During May-June 2015 the participants in the Synthetic Call Option Plan shall give notice of their participation. Employees' acquisition of synthetic call options shall be made at market value during May-June 2015 (the "Entry Date"). The market value will be calculated by a reputable, independent, valuation institute applying a standard valuation model accepted by the market (Black-Scholes). Allocation of synthetic call options will be made by the Board, or the Remuneration Committee, in accordance with the principles adopted by the Annual General Meeting and will be based on the employees' competence, area of responsibility and annual base salary, gross before taxes ("Gross Salary"). The participants can acquire synthetic call options for an amount that corresponds to a maximum of 7 per cent of the Gross Salary per person. The employees may, in total, invest a maximum of SEK 2.7 million in the Synthetic Call Option Plan. The issue of synthetic call options will take place by entering into an agreement between Qliro Group and the employee, principally on the following terms: · The synthetic call options may be exercised during May-June 2018 and also in case Qliro Group divests the underlying Subsidiary (the "Closing Date"). However in the event that Qliro Group divests a Subsidiary before the 2016 Annual General Meeting, Qliro Group will have a right to acquire the synthetic call options at market value calculated in accordance with Black-Scholes model. · One (1) synthetic call option shall give the holder the right to receive, from Qliro Group, an amount calculated on the basis of the value-growth in Qliro Group's shareholding in the underlying Subsidiary, subject to the condition that the determined value of Qliro Group's shareholding in the underlying Subsidiary on the Closing Date is at least 120 per cent of the determined value of Qliro Group's shareholding in the underlying Subsidiary at the Entry Date. · Payment to the participants of said amount will, in accordance with the detailed terms and conditions of the synthetic call options, with certain exceptions, be made by Qliro Group transferring own ordinary shares to the participants. The number of ordinary shares that will be transferred to the participants will be based on a calculated share price for the Qliro Group ordinary share (calculated as the average for each trading day calculated average volume-weighted price paid for Qliro Group's ordinary shares on Nasdaq Stockholm during 10 trading days from and including the first trading day after Qliro Group publishes its interim report for the first quarter year 2018). · The synthetic call options that may be issued according to the Synthetic Call Option Plan shall be freely transferrable, but subject to a pre-emptive right for Qliro Group to acquire the synthetic call options at market value calculated in accordance with Black-Scholes. · Qliro Group will subsidise the acquisition of the synthetic call options by granting the participants a cash compensation corresponding to 50 per cent of the synthetic call option premium, net after taxes. The subsidy will be paid out in three equal instalments over three (3) years (2016, 2017 and 2018) subject to that the holder is still employed by Qliro Group and has not sold the synthetic call options acquired under the Synthetic Call Option Plan. · The Synthetic Call Option Plan will not increase the number of shares in the Subsidiaries, and accordingly Qliro Group's ownership stake will remain unchanged. Scope and costs The synthetic call options will be transferred to the participants at market price. Qliro Group's initial cost for the Synthetic Call Option Plan will therefore only correspond to the cost of the subsidy, including social security costs. The future costs or revenues for Qliro Group attributable to issued synthetic call options will depend on the value growth of the underlying Subsidiaries. If the value of an underlying Subsidiary at the Closing Date is less than 120 per cent of the value at the Entry Date, the synthetic call options will be worthless and the paid option premiums, with deduction of paid subsidies, will become revenue for Qliro Group. If the value of an underlying Subsidiary at the Closing Date exceeds 120 per cent of the value at the Entry Date, the synthetic call options will have a value. The total value of the issued synthetic call options at the Closing Date will be a maximum of approximately one (1) per cent of the difference between the determined value for the underlying Subsidiaries at the Closing Date and 120 per cent of the value at the Entry Date, however, the total value of the Subsidiaries may never exceed Qliro Group's market cap at the time of valuation. The administrative costs for hedging delivery of Qliro Group ordinary shares amounting to the difference between the determined value for each of the Subsidiaries at the Closing Date and 120 per cent of the value at the Entry Date, with deduction of the option premiums paid by the participants and taking into consideration the costs for the proposed subsidies, will be the total cost for Qliro Group. Settlement in relation to the option holders will be made during 2018, or at Qliro Group's exit in the underlying Subsidiary. The cost for the subsidy is estimated to amount to approximately SEK 4.1 million (including social security costs), and the cost will be allocated over the years 2015–2018. The maximum dilution under the Synthetic Call Option Plan is 0.5 per cent in terms of shares and votes outstanding in Qliro Group. Administration of the Synthetic Call Option Plan and the detailed terms and conditions for the synthetic call options The Board, or the Remuneration Committee, shall resolve upon the persons to be invited to acquire synthetic call options as well as the detailed terms of the option agreements to subsequently be entered into with the participants. Further, the Board, or the Remuneration Committee, will be responsible for the detailed design and management of the Synthetic Call Option Plan within the framework of the main terms and guidelines as resolved by the Annual General Meeting. Hedging arrangements for the plans (item 19) The Board proposes the following methods to secure delivery of Qliro Group shares to the participants under LTIP 2015: Authorisation for the Board to resolve on a new issue of Class C shares (item 19(a)) The Board proposes that the Annual General Meeting resolves to authorise the Board, during the period until the next Annual General Meeting, to increase the company's share capital by not more than SEK 4,400,000 by a new issue of not more than 2,200,000 Class C shares. With deviation of the shareholders' preferential rights, Nordea Bank AB (publ) shall be entitled to subscribe for the new Class C shares at a subscription price corresponding to the quota value of the shares (SEK 2.00). The purpose of the authorisation and the reason for the disapplication of the shareholders' preferential rights in connection with the new issue of shares is to ensure delivery of shares to participants under LTIP 2015. Authorisation for the Board to resolve to repurchase Class C shares (item 19(b)) The Board proposes that the Annual General Meeting resolves to authorise the Board, during the period until the next Annual General Meeting, to repurchase its own Class C shares. The repurchase may only be effected through an offer directed to all holders of Class C shares and shall comprise all outstanding Class C shares. The repurchase may be effected at a purchase price corresponding to not less than SEK 2 and not more than SEK 2.10. Payment for the repurchased Class C shares shall be made in cash. The purpose of the repurchase is to ensure the delivery of ordinary shares under LTIP 2015. Transfer of ordinary shares for delivery under the incentive plans (item 19(c)) The Board proposes that the Annual General Meeting resolves that a maximum of 2,200,000 ordinary shares held by Qliro Group may be transferred to participants in accordance with the terms of the LTIP 2015, whereof 1,450,000 ordinary shares may be transferred to the participants in the PSP and 750,000 ordinary shares may be transferred to the participants in the Synthetic Call Option Plan, respectively). The number of the shares that may be transferred to the participants under LTIP 2015 shall be subject to recalculation in the event of an intervening bonus issue, reversed split, split, rights issue and/or other similar events. As set out above under items 18(a) and (b), LTIP 2015 may as an alternative be hedged by Qliro Group entering into an agreement with a bank that will be able to, in its own name, acquire and transfer Qliro Group shares to the participants LTIP 2015. Furthermore, in certain cases participants in the Synthetic Call Option Plan may be offered cash-settlement instead of Qliro Group shares. That said; the Board considers the transfer of ordinary shares as its preferred option. Authorisation for the Board to resolve on repurchase of own ordinary shares (item 20) The Board proposes that the Board is authorised to pass a resolution on repurchasing the company's own ordinary shares, if the purpose is to retire shares through a decrease of the share capital in accordance with the following conditions: · The repurchase of ordinary shares shall take place on the Nasdaq Stockholm following the rules set out by Nasdaq Stockholm regarding re-purchase of own shares. · The repurchase of ordinary shares may take place on one or more occasions for the period up until the next Annual General Meeting. · So many ordinary shares may, at the most, be repurchased so that the company's holding does not at any time exceed 10 percent of the total number of shares in the company. · The repurchase of ordinary shares at the Nasdaq Stockholm may occur at a price per share within the share price interval registered at that time, where share price interval means the difference between the highest buying price and the lowest selling price. · Payment for the shares shall be in cash. The purpose of the authorisation is to give the Board flexibility to continuously decide on changes to the capital structure during the year and thereby contribute to increased shareholder value. The Board shall be able to resolve that repurchase of own shares shall be made within a repurchase program in accordance with the Commission's Regulation (EC) no 2273/2003, if the purpose of the authorisation and the repurchase only is to decrease the company's share capital. MISCELLANEOUS Shares and votes There are a total number of 150,444,779 shares in the company, whereof 149,269,779 ordinary shares and 1,175,000 Class C shares, corresponding to a total of 150,444,779 votes. The company currently holds 1,175,000 of its own Class C shares corresponding to 1,175,000 votes which cannot be represented at the Annual General Meeting.

Climeon recognized as top innovative company in Sweden - efficiently producing electricity from hot water

Climeon is rated as one of the top 33 innovative technology companies in Sweden in the annual listing by prestigious business and technology publications, Affärsvärlden and Ny Teknik. The Climeon Ocean™ system, a patented innovation, enables electricity to be extracted from hot water. The technology provides competitive, cost-effective electricity production via waste heat recovery. One Climeon Ocean module can generate 150 KW – enough to heat more than 100 average homes.* “About half the world's energy ends up as waste heat,” says Thomas Öström, CEO of Climeon. “We believe that by using this technology, electricity can be extracted from large volumes of such heat. Today, renewable energy is about 20% of the total global energy supply. The renewable energy market is estimated to be worth hundreds of billion dollars.” The Climeon Ocean technology is scalable and can be implemented in business areas and industries such as heat from engines, heavy industries, and solar, water or geothermal heat. The innovation can replace many TWh of fossil-based electricity. Climeon Ocean uses an optimized and patented process for converting hot water (between 70 and 120 oC) to electricity in a vacuum process. Climeon Ocean is an investment with a relatively short payback period. The system enables companies to save operating cost and to reduce their environmental impact. Viking Line operates a fleet of cruise ferries in the Baltic Sea. Viking Grace, Viking Line's newest ship, is the first ship in the world to use the Climeon Ocean system. Interest in marine applications is large. A system module of 150 kW will generate more than 1 million kWh of electricity annually – by extracting waste heat from the ship’s engines. Just one module saves up to 200 tons of fuel per year. Consequently, it reduces carbon dioxide emissions by up to 400 tons per year. For further information please contact Thomas Öström, +46 70 894 9605, thomas.ostrom@climeon.com. www.climeon.com About the 33 listFor the eighth consecutive year, Affärsvärlden and Ny Teknik recognize 33 of Sweden’s most promising technology companies. List inclusion criteria are: (i) companies must be at most seven years old; (ii) they must be based on a technological innovation with international potential, and (iii) they must demonstrate that they want to change their industries’ playing rules (e.g., to create entirely new markets). * As per Swedish Energy Agency, the average house in Sweden annually consumes 12,200 kWh for heating.

SKF First-quarter report 2015

Alrik Danielson, President and CEO:”Demand was in line with our expectations, with reported sales growth in local currencies of 1,4%. All three business areas showed an increase in sales in local currencies. Geographically, Asia continued to show a good growth followed by Europe and Latin America which were relatively unchanged while in North America the business slowed somewhat due to lower activity in some of our key industries. Cash flow from operations was strong, even though we built some working capital in the quarter due to seasonality.There has been a high focus on implementing the already announced restructuringprogramme and I am pleased to see the good progress so far, around 40%.The high focus on innovations is continuing throughout the organization and we have launched several new innovations to help our customers improve their productivity and reduce energy usage. For example, we introduced a new generalized bearing life concept enabling customers to much better account for real-life conditions when calculating SKF bearing life in their machines.Looking forward, there is continued uncertainty from a macro perspective. Sequentially and year on year we expect the demand to be relatively unchanged for the Group.I am also pleased to welcome a new Senior Vice President and CFO for the Group, Christian Johansson.’’ Key figures Q1 2015 Q1 2014Net sales, SEKm 19 454 16 734Operating profit, SEKm 1 721 2 024Operating margin, % 8.8 12.1One-time items (- costs, + income) -655 117Operating profit excluding one-time items, SEKm 2 376 1 907Operating margin excl. one-time items % 12.2 11.4Profit before taxes, SEKm 1 592 1 787Net profit, SEKm 1 165 1 275Basic earnings per share, SEK 2.46 2.72 One-time items in Q1 2015 include SEK -535 million for the ongoing cost-reduction programme, and the remainder relates to write-offs of assets. 31 March 2015 31 December 2014 31 March 2014Net working 32.1 30.6 32.8capital, % ofannual salesROCE for the 12 12.6 13.9 8.4-month period, %Net debt/equity, % 122.2 126.6 117.6Net debt/EBITDA, % 3.2 3.0 4.2 Net sales change y-o-y, %: Organic Structure Currency TotalQ1 2015 1.4 0 14.9 16.3 Organic sales change in local Europe NorthAmerica Latin Asia Middlecurrencies, per region y-o-y, America East &%: AfricaQ1 2015 1.0 -2.4 0.4 5.6 14.2 Outlook for the second quarter of 2015 Demand compared to the second quarter 2014The demand for SKF’s products and services is expected to be relatively unchanged for the Group and for Europe.

Development of NVP014 for the treatment of stroke enters new phase in collaboration with Isomerase Therapeutics

NeuroVive’s collaboration with to-BBB Technologies B.V. of the Netherlands on the development of NVP014 for the treatment of ischemic stroke concluded at the end of 2014. Because to-BBB underwent restructuring just before the collaboration concluded and later went into liquidation, NeuroVive has chosen to bring the project to the next phase in collaboration with UK partner Isomerase Therapeutics. With the support of the chemistry platform NeuroVive acquired from Biotica in 2013, and new models for studies on penetration of the blood-brain barrier, the objective is to identify drug candidates for clinical development, mainly for the treatment of stroke. The earlier project with to-BBB was financed by an EU grant (Eurostars™) secured through Swedish VINNOVA, and VINNOVA has approved NeuroVive’s decision to continue development alongside Isomerase Therapeutics. Further funding is now being sought from sources including VINNOVA. The collaboration with Isomerase has already generated new lead compounds that are in pre-clinical evaluation. “The initiative we’ve now begun with Isomerase Therapeutics is based on the results of our earlier project, but we’re now continuing the work with the molecules based on the same chemistry platform as for NVP018/NVP019, which we view as the next generation cyclophilin inhibitor. We’re also developing a new method for improved penetration across the blood-brain barrier compared to to-BBB’s preparation,” commented Magnus Hansson, Senior Scientist at NeuroVive. “The former collaboration with to-BBB, our current partnership with Isomerase and the funding applications submitted during the spring alongside our strategic partners in Europe have broadened the project platform for NVP014. This increases our chances of developing effective drug candidates for the treatment of ischemic stroke,” Magnus Hansson continued. About NeuroViveNeuroVive Pharmaceutical AB (publ), the mitochondrial medicine company, is developing a portfolio of products to treat acute cardiovascular and neurological conditions through mitochondrial protection. These medical conditions are characterized by a pressing medical need and have no approved pharmaceutical treatment options at present.

SKF invests SEK 190 million in Gothenburg production channels

Gothenburg, 17 April 2015: SKF is investing SEK 190 million in modernizing its spherical roller bearing production channels in Gothenburg. The investment is part of the Group’s focus on the development of world class manufacturing processes. More modern manufacturing processes, including intelligent grinding, which enables reduced set-up times and improved production efficiency, will be combined with SKF’s own condition monitoring and mobile connectivity solutions. With access to real-time and remote monitoring, operators will be empowered to better predict and plan machine maintenance schedules, as well as develop long-term statistical evaluations of diagnostic data. Luc Graux, Manufacturing Director, Industrial Market, says, “Combining new manufacturing processes with our condition monitoring and connectivity solutions really brings us into the modern era. It will also help make our production more flexible and efficient, as we roll-out the SKF Production System in Gothenburg.” Speaking about the Group’s focus on sustainability, he says, “This investment supports our continued focus on energy efficiency. Since 2006, we have reduced our energy usage by 300 GWh (16%), despite significant increases in production output.” The investments announced today are expected to be completed by the end of 2016.
