Double Bond Pharmaceutical AB has been granted Orphan Drug Designation status by EMA for the drug candidate Temodex.

July 22, 2016 Double Bond Pharmaceutical (DBP) has been officially granted Orphan Drug Designation (Orphan Drug) status for the drug candidate Temodex by the European Medicines Agency (EMA). The approval applies to the treatment of glioma, which is the most common type of brain cancer. Ten years of market exclusivity for the indication and a great support from the authority will hereby be given to DBP to accelerate the development of the drug. The EMA grants Orphan Drug Designation status to drugs that treat diseases with less than 200 000 people affected in Europe. For DBP this means that the development of the drug will be much more cost-effective and timesaving implying that the drug can reach the market much faster. Moreover, ten years of market exclusivity for the drug within the broad indication of glioma will give the biggest market possible during a longer time which means that Temodex will not have any direct generic competition for ten years from the date of market approval. The EMA also provides various kinds of support to facilitate and accelerate the development and marketing authorization of the product. The decision by EMA is based on that Temodex offers a significant benefit compared to existing registered therapeutic alternatives in Europe. -The Orphan Drug Designation Status was granted solely based on the written application and no follow-up questions were asked. That shows EMA’s confidence in the company’s product, says Stellan Swedmark, Director of Preclinical Development/Regulatory Affairs. -This considerably strengthens our competitiveness and further improves the conditions for DBP to succeed on the European market, says Igor Lokot, CEO of DBP.

Join Galaxy of Star Speakers at the 12th IIR Gustav Lorentzen Natural Fluids Conference

A regular speaker and sponsor of the leading industry event, Star Refrigeration will this year have a strong presence at the conference with nine of their engineers  presenting papers on the technical and economic aspects of natural refrigerants as well as the latest developments in ammonia cooling and heating and CO2 refrigeration technologies. Focusing on how the industry can cement a sustainable future for natural working fluids in the increasingly challenging global, political, legislative and economic environment,  the conference provides delegates with industry insight from the sector’s leaders. Speaking about the Conference and Star’s input, Rob Lamb, Group Sales and Marketing Director of Star Refrigeration, said, “We are delighted to share with the industry the experiences and knowledge gained from our continuous research and extensive work on industrial refrigeration and heat pumps using ammonia and CO2. Our engineers are working hard to ensure the sustainable future of natural refrigerants by re-engineering systems in order to improve reliability, safety and efficiency as well as co-operating with our suppliers to reduce capital costs of ownership. We are glad the IIR found value in all the papers submitted.” “We are honoured to be a part of the event and are very much looking forward to meeting colleagues and discussing the industry with other stakeholders from around the world.” Held every two years at various locations around the world, the 12th IIR Gustav Lorentzen Conference will cover a wide range of topics on natural working fluids, including safe and reliable operation, high temperature heat pumps, energy efficiency, supermarket applications, cooling with air or water, and evaporative cooling. Bringing together end users, owners and operators, academic researchers, industrialists, policy makers, contractors, commissioners and operation installers, designers, building service consultants, manufacturers and technology providers, the bi-yearly conference is as much about learning as it is about networking with likeminded individuals. There will be over 145 papers presented at the conference. Star will be leading nine sessions in total, including papers from John Clark and Angus Gillies who were recently honoured with the Lightfoot Medal Award at the IOR dinner for their pioneering research comparing evaporative and air cooled condensers in industrial applications which produced clear and straightforward evidence demonstrating that air-cooled condensers are the best option for industrial applications in the UK. The following papers will be presented at the conference on a variety of topics: Bruce Smeaton will shed light on “What is the best refrigerant and what is the best system?”. Dr. Lewis Brown will present a paper on “Experimental measurements and computational predictions of the gas flow field in a refrigerant helical oil separator”. John Clark will explore “Economic comparison of pumped carbon dioxide as a volatile secondary fluid against traditional glycol systems”. Co- authors Andy Lamb and Nicky Cowan will discuss “The design to maximise the cost effectiveness of an ammonia heat pump”. Dermot Cotter will demonstrate “A Systematic Approach to Risk Assessing Ammonia Refrigeration Systems”. Angus Gillies will speak about “Design considerations for industrial CO2 applications”. Dr. Forbes Pearson will investigate the “Influence of refrigerant choice on performance of air source heat pumps”. Star’s Group Managing Director Dr. Andy Pearson, also serving as the Conference Chairman and introducing the event, will draw on the company’s vast experience to share  “Lessons learned from a reappraisal of the original heat pump” and “Ventilation for ammonia systems”. The company has also arranged two site visits during the conference. Whilst visiting ASDA in Falkirk and Brake Brothers in Newhouse, delegates will also have the opportunity to take part in two technical tours and onsite short courses arranged by Star Refrigeration to demonstrate the practical applications of ammonia and CO2 refrigerants on the 23rd August. Previously held in Hangzhou, China, Sydney, Australia and Indiana, the 2016 IIR Gustav Lorentzen Natural Working Fluids Conference will be held at Heriot Watt University in Edinburgh, between the 21st and 24th of August. The full programme for the conference is available to view at http://www.ior.org.uk/GL2016.

Why OCR is revolutionising businesses all over

In many office environments huge amounts of time is spent on unnecessary tasks such as inputting data, or searching through piles of documents and files to retrieve information needed to complete a task. The growing trend of document digitisation, enabled by document scanning providers such as Pearl Scan, is helping to reduce time wasted and when coupled with OCR technology it is revolutionising businesses all over. OCR (optical character recognition) is the process of converting a scanned document into fully editable and searchable virtual files, transforming paper documents into formats such as Microsoft Word, Excel spread sheets, CV files and PDF searchable documents. When processing a scanned digital file with OCR technology, highly useful documents are created as a result which can allow businesses to have easier and quicker access to streams of data in a digital format. Naveed Ashraf, Managing Director at Pearl Scan said, “Implementing document scanning solutions is a great way to free up space and de-clutter any office, but without the addition of OCR these files are simply stored virtually as opposed to in physical format. Applying this technology to the files that are scanned can revolutionise businesses by helping to organise the vast amount of data that lies within these paper documents, and presenting them in a way which easy to search and analyse.” Ashraf continued, “Ultimately, processes are streamlined, meaning that organisations can respond to the needs of their customers much more efficiently and effectively when using OCR.” OCR intelligence can be applied to any digital document that contains text information, and can be used to speed up the workflow of a wide range of industries and job roles that rely on large amounts of paper files and physical databases every day. Reducing time that was spent manually going through piles of documentation to a simple keyword text search, OCR helps businesses to make intelligent use of the information held within their archives. Pearl Scan is a nationwide provider of document scanning solutions and offer three levels of OCR conversion, each option formulated to meet specific technical requirements.

NEW PLANT BODY TO TACKLE DELIVERIES IN THE COTSWOLDS

Gloucester-based Ermin Plant Hire has taken delivery of a new 13-tonne Mercedes-Benz Atego mounted with an Andover Trailers plant body and double-cranked beavertail. The firm also has a larger 26-tonne Arocs with plant body in build for delivery later this year. The Atego replaces a similar truck, which also featured Andover Trailers bodywork, and will operate primarily from the company’s Cirencester depot carrying general plant including diggers, dumpers and rollers. It has been specified with a shorter wheelbase to allow for easier access to construction sites in the Cotswolds, which must often be accessed via narrow lanes. Mark Davis, Ermin Plant Hire Transport Manager says: “Having worked with Andover Trailers across three decades, we have always found their plant bodies to perform exceptionally well and live up to the rigorous demands of transporting heavy equipment. “When it came to ordering our new plant body, Andover Trailers was naturally our first choice.” Constructed with combined mesh and hardwood ramps, to allow for the loading of machinery on tyres or tracks, as well as steel drum rollers, the plant body features a fixed-width working at height safety system complete with straps and stowage for the posts set against the headboard. Additional features include ramp controls situated on both sides for maximum ease of operation, a radio remote-controlled electric winch and open-top chain trays to safely store chains when not in use. The 26-tonner on order will be built to the same specification as an identical vehicle delivered last year. The 6x2 rear-steer Arocs will be mounted with a plant body featuring a double-crank beavertail and fuel-saving fold-forward ramps, hydraulic steady legs and eight pairs of lashing rings – with four further rings fitted in the centre of the deck – as well as a removable, fixed-width working at height system and ramp controls on each side of the vehicle. It will be used to deliver larger items of plant, which range from eight-tonne excavators to telehandlers, forklifts, boom lifts, cherry pickers and dump trucks. Davis adds: “Andover Trailers has always provided us with purpose-built products specific to our needs and this new 26-tonne plant body will be no different.” ends For information on the heavy haulage and specialist transport solutions provided by Andover Trailers, contact Andover Trailers Ltd, Unit 75, Columbus Way, Walworth Business Park, Andover, Hampshire, SP10 5NP.

Change the experience and experience a change For Paroc, 2015 marked the beginning of a different market approach as a reaction to four megatrends that, according to the report, drive the modern construction market: These megatrends include rapid climate change, progressing urbanisation, current economic uncertainty and the customer experience as crucial factors for the manufacturers operating in the ever-competitive insulation market. – The construction industry as a whole has traditionally been slower to adapt new trends well-established in other markets – says Marja Jakola, Business Development Director at Paroc. – Customer experience and digitalisation are fine examples of how the construction brands can differentiate themselves in a highly competitive environment. Sustainability starts at home Last year brought us new resolutions regarding EU’s energy policy. President and CEO of Paroc Group, Kari Lehtinen, sees the improvement of buildings’ energy efficiency not only as a potential, but also as duty. – 2015 was turning point in the climate change discussion due to the COP21 climate change agreement in Paris. There is a need for robust climate action on a national level, and I am cautiously optimistic to believe that the COP21 agreement leads to more concrete actions such as changes in regulations. Even though energy consumption in new buildings is on a good level, there is still a lot of work to be done with the most of the existing building stock – he commented. In 2015 Paroc continued to increase operational efficiency while decreasing its environmental footprint. The company progressed towards the goal of reducing energy consumption by 30% by 2020 in comparison to 2011 and the amount of waste to landfill, as followed by the increased amount of recycled raw materials in the processes. In 2015 only, the Paroc’s plants cut the energy consumption in megawatts/hour per ton by an average of 4,5%. This has contributed to a diminished carbon footprint, as the company substituted oil with the use of natural gas while also decreasing the use of coke in melting. Sustainability through innovation The best way to promote sustainable development is to continuously innovate and strive towards a better built environment. 2015 saw a number of Paroc innovations which helped to create more value from proven materials. One of them is the PAROC Delign concept of a complete integrated facade system with user-friendly mounting and flashing system that does without unwanted vertical stripes in prefabricated building’s facades and allows a horizontal line to continue over the seam. For the first time, the report content has been defined according to Global Reporting Initiative’s G4 methodology, thus disclosing company’s most critical impacts on the environment, society and economy in a reliable and standardized way.

BIBBY DISTRIBUTION’S CARBON FOOTPRINT SHRINKS FOR THIRD YEAR RUNNING

Bibby Distribution’s CO2 emissions have shrunk for the third year running, thanks to an award-winning array of carbon-cutting initiatives. The 3PL’s annual carbon report has found that total CO2 emissions per km have dropped by a further 5.9 per cent on 2015, on top of the continuous improvement seen since 2013. The reduction in emissions is the result of a spectrum of smart initiatives that improve efficiency at every level. Bibby Distribution has also been recognised by the Freight Transport Association (FTA) as a sector leader, with the 3PL winning the FTA’s Leadership in Carbon Reduction Award in May. Andrew Mawson, Head of Safety, Health, Environment and Quality, Bibby Distribution, says: “Carbon emission reduction isn’t an ‘extra’ for Bibby Distribution. It’s at the heart of everything we do. Reducing CO2means our fleet is working more efficiently. That’s the right thing to do, because it’s good for the environment, but it’s also better for customers, as it’s good business sense. We prioritise innovation, cut costs, and help ensure our customers can do business without costing the Earth.” The ongoing improvement has been delivered by several major projects introduced over the past two years. Dual-fuel vehicles have been introduced on high-mileage contracts, cutting individual emissions by 10 per cent, while the 3PL’s active participation in the ongoing longer semi-trailer trial has seen Bibby Distribution conduct 8,400 fewer journeys without compromising on volume. Additionally, the introduction of a new type of tanker has cut fuel usage by 53 per cent during the process of collecting milk from farms, and all drivers across Bibby Distribution are now benefiting from individually tailored training, that uses the 3PL’s full fleet telematics to identify and eliminate inefficient driving practices. ends Notes to editors:As one of the top ten logistics providers in the UK, Bibby Distribution exists to enable other companies to drive value from their supply chain activities.

ALLIANZ TRAVEL INSURANCE SHARING ECONOMY INDEX REVEALS TWICE AS MANY AMERICANS TO USE HYBRID MARKET FOR SUMMER TRAVEL IN 2016

More than double the amount of Americans plan to use sharing economy services for their travel plans this summer compared to 2015 due to an increase in familiarity and trust, according to the second annual Allianz Travel Insurance Sharing Economy Index released today by Allianz Global Assistance USA. The first year-on-year survey to track consumer confidence in the sharing economy market for travel planning, the analysis found that one in three Americans (36 percent) say they are likely to use sharing economy services such as Airbnb, HomeAway, Uber or Lyft during their summer vacation this year. This is up from last year when just 17 percent of Americans said they were likely to use these services. Millennials continue to lead the sharing economy trend with 65 percent aged 18-34 saying they are likely to use these services (up 37 percentage points from 2015), compared to the 33 percent aged 35-54 (up 16 points) and the 14 percent aged 55 or over (up eight percent) who are likely to use sharing economy services. Americans with an annual income of $50,000 or more (38 percent) are more likely to use sharing economy services than those with an income less than $50,000 (32 percent). The survey found that this growth is the result of expanded familiarity and trust in the services. American millennials continue to increase in familiarity with 86 percent saying they are familiar with the sharing economy services offered (up 28 percentage points from 2015), compared to the 67 percent aged 35-54 (up 14 points) and the 49 percent aged 55 or over (up 20 points). America is also becoming more aware of the variety of sharing economy services available with Uber topping the list with 62 percent of Americans saying they are familiar with the service (up 27 points from 2015). Airbnb is up 16 points with 35 percent familiarity and Lyft rose 19 points to 34 percent familiarity. Additionally, HomeAway (18 percent; up eight points), GetAround (11 percent; up four points) and Feastly (10 percent; up six points) all experienced growth in familiarity. With greater familiarity also comes increased trust. The survey showed that 48 percent of Americans find sharing economy services such as Airbnb, HomeAway, Uber or Lyft to be trustworthy, up four points from 2015. When asked about which services provide the better experience, the survey found that more Americans feel the sharing economy provides better value (26 percent; up nine percent) and a more authentic local experience (22 percent; up 10 percent), however they still prefer traditional services such as online services like Expedia.com, using a travel agent, or booking directly with a hotel, restaurant or car service for providing the better overall experience (25 percent), quality product (31 percent), booking (31 percent) and customer support when things go wrong (40 percent). “We’re at an interesting intersection right now between sharing economy and traditional services,” said Daniel Durazo, director of communications at Allianz Global Assistance USA. “The playing field is quite level with many Americans having an uncertainty about which services provide the better experience, which opens an opportunity for the lesser known sharing economy to take a bigger stake as awareness continues to increase. There was already significant growth in use, familiarity and trust of the sharing economy over the last year showing that these services are not a fad and have great potential for longevity.” The Sharing Economy Index was established in 2015 by Allianz Global Assistance USA and is conducted each summer by national polling firm Ipsos Public Affairs. Methodology: These are some of the findings of an Ipsos poll conducted on behalf of Allianz from May 3 to 10, 2016. For the survey, a sample of n=2,007 Americans was interviewed online via Ipsos’s American online panel. The precision of Ipsos online surveys is measured using a Bayesian credibility interval. In this case, with a sample of this size, the results are considered accurate to within ± 2.5 percentage points, 19 times out of 20, of what they would have been had all Americans been polled. The margin of error will be larger within sub-groupings of the survey population.

We insure 21 million customers annually and are best known for our Allianz Travel Insurance plans.

TMC’S Everstill™ K-400 Receives Microscopy Today Innovation Award

Contact: Sheryl Aleckna, +1 978-532-6330, sheryl.aleckna@ametek.com PEABODY, MA — TMC’s Everstill (http://www.techmfg.com/products/Everstill.html)™ K-400 active vibration cancellation benchtop platform was named by the editors of Microscopy Today magazine as one of the ten most important and useful innovations developed for the microscopy community in 2015. The Innovation Awards were presented at the Microscopy & Microanalysis 2016 Meeting held in Columbus, Ohio. TMC (http://www.techmfg.com/) is the industry leader in high-performance vibration cancellation technology. Everstill is the next generation in active vibration cancellation. Its patented technology features aggressive vibration cancellation starting at 0.7 Hz and delivers dramatic vibration cancellation in the critical 1-10 Hz range. “TMC is proud to be recognized for its state-of-the-art Everstill technology, the first of its kind in a compact benchtop design,” states Wes Wigglesworth, TMC Product Manager, Active Systems. “Everstill’s significance is two-fold: vibration cancellation at low frequency and stability. Only inertial, active vibration cancellation systems, such as Everstill, will aggressively cancel low frequency vibration. It employs serial-type architecture with an active control loop consisting of a sub-1 Hz sensor, actuator, intermediate mass and digital processor. “Serial-type active systems achieve better overall vibration isolation because payload resonances are mechanically filtered from the vibration sensors. This allows for high gain settings and a wide active bandwidth with no sacrifice in system stability. The added stability from the stiff springs inside Everstill enables longer hold times for critical procedures. No other commercial product can provide such a solution,” adds Wigglesworth. Existing benchtop vibration isolation utilizes passive springs, self-leveling pneumatic passive isolators or alternative active vibration cancellation. While existing technology is good at attenuating high-frequency vibration (above 10 Hz), it is inferior at low frequencies, specifically in the 0.7 Hz–10 Hz region. Such alternative solutions are inherently “soft,” easily deflecting in response to a force induced on the payload, such as when adjusting an eyepiece on a microscope. Everstill is ideal for supporting optical microscopes, scanning probe microscopes, gravitometers and other benchtop metrology instruments on existing lab tables. Applications include in-vitro fertilization, digital microscopy, live cell imaging, and atomic force microscopy for molecular and protein investigation, among others. The Everstill K-400 is the first embodiment of TMC’s Everstill technology, which will lead to a family of products in the coming years. TMC designs and manufactures precision vibration isolation systems for sensitive research and manufacturing processes worldwide. TMC is an ISO 9001:2008-certified company. Its products include active and passive vibration isolation systems, optical tops, optical table systems and breadboards; laboratory tables and tabletop platforms; floor platforms and Quiet Island® raised floors; magnetic field cancellation and electric field shielding systems; and acoustic enclosures. TMC is a unit of AMETEK Ultra Precision Technologies, a pioneer in the development of ultra-precision measurement instruments and a global leader in ultra-precise machine tools and manufacturing systems for the semiconductor, photovoltaic, nanotechnology, military, defense and ophthalmic lens markets.

Cleantech Invest made directed share issue to enable additional add-on investment in fast growing portfolio company

Based on authorization granted by the Extraordinary General Meeting on 9 March 2016 and subscription commitments received from a small group of investors, the Board of Directors of Cleantech Invest Plc (“Cleantech Invest” or the “Company”) has on 25 July 2016 resolved on a directed share issue (the “Offering”). In the Offering, 793,271 new class A shares (the “Offer Shares”) were offered for subscription at the subscription price of EUR 1,10 per share, which equals to the volume weighted average price of Cleantech Invest Plc’s class A share on First North Finland during the time period between 13 April 2016 and 13 July 2016 and a discount of 5%. The Offer Shares have been subscribed for in full by a small group of investors. The entire subscription price of the Offer Shares will be recorded in the reserve for invested unrestricted equity. The Offer Shares represent approximately 3.65% of the outstanding shares in the Company after the Offering, when taking into account also 150,000 new class K shares subscribed based on the Company’s stock options 2013 as well as 41,268 new class A shares subscribed in the share exchange executed in connection with the Company’s investment in ResQ Club Oy, the registration of which to the Trade Register is pending on the date of this resolution. The reason for the Offering is for the Company to have the ability to make an add-on investment in a fast growing portfolio company, which is currently in fund raising process. Having the ability to make this investment is in the interest of Cleantech Invest shareholders as it is a sound investment in its own right and having the ability to do the investment increases funding possibilities for the portfolio company, decreases the risk as well as enhances the upside potential in this holding significantly. Cleantech Invest will apply for listing of the Offer Shares on First North Finland and First North Sweden. Cleantech Invest will publish an update to its company description published in April 2016 in connection with the listing of the Offer Shares.

Stena Line methanol project shortlisted for Global Freight Awards

Europe’s leading ferry company has been shortlisted in the categories of Environment Award and Product Innovation Award for the innovative work it is doing with methanol powered vessels. The winners will be announced at a gala dinner in London on 3rd November. The main objective of the Stena Methanol pilot project is to develop a pragmatic, cost-effective and green alternative to comply with the sulphur emission reduction targets in designated SECA areas and later globally. The alternatives available for ship-owners to comply with these and other future regulations are limited so the interest in this initiative is significant across the world.   Erik Lewenhaupt, Stena Line’s Head of Sustainability said: “Initially we converted the Stena Germanica for 6 weeks at Remontowa shipyard, Poland, during 2015. She is currently testing three engines on methanol and by Q3 2016 will have all her four main engines able to run fully on methanol making her the world’s first methanol powered conversion of an existing vessel. The results to date have been very encouraging and we are thrilled to try a new marine fuel with a substantially greener environmental footprint.” Richard Horswill, Stena Line’s Head of Freight UK and Ireland said: “We are delighted to have been shortlisted for two categories in what are effectively the Oscar’s of the freight world. As a company Stena Line aims to connect Europe in a sustainable way and we know that our initiatives in respect of methanol and other innovative approaches are appreciated by the industry as it seeks to improve efficiency and environmental performance.”   The Stena methanol project has received funding support from EU’s TEN-T, Motorways of the Sea initiative, and is carried out in partnership with Methanex, Wärtsilä, the Port of Kiel and the Port of Gothenburg.

War Child charity brings all-star roster of developers together for HELP: THE GAME

Games industry leaders have stepped up to support the children’s charity War Child with HELP: THE GAME, a collection of original PC games released globally through the games distribution service Steam. The result of a global game jam with eleven different development teams – each donating six days of their time to create original games – all profits from HELP: THE GAME go toward War Child’s work supporting children suffering from conflicts around the globe. In addition to Rovio’s Stockholm studio, which produced two new titles Anthelion and Splash Bash, the other participating studios are Bossa Studios, Creative Assembly, Curve Digital, Hardlight, Modern Dream, Spilt Milk Studios, Sports Interactive, Sumo Digital, Team 17 and Torn Banner. The games bundle is published by SEGA Europe. War Child is the only specialist charity devoted to children affected by conflict. There are more than 230 million children living with the effects of war globally. More than half of all people affected by conflict are children, but less than 5 per cent of humanitarian funding is spent protecting and educating them. Children are the most vulnerable and are at risk of violence, abuse and trauma. They miss out on school and become separated from their families. The charity believes children in emergencies need more than simply food, shelter and water – they need education, livelihoods and protection as well. “It’s fitting that the games business has taken this project to its heart as, after all, every child should have the right to play but not all get that chance,” says Rob Williams OBE, CEO of War Child UK. “We’re extremely grateful to everyone who has agreed to get involved and we hope their efforts will not only raise much-needed funds, but also awareness of our work amongst a vast audience of gamers across the globe.” “I am honoured that we got to be a part of this important charity work,” adds Patrick Liu of Rovio’s Stockholm team. “Funds raised from HELP: THE GAME will help children around the world. Contributing to this project has been a lot of fun, but also a duty to the next generation of players and game developers. After all, it’s children we’re talking about, what could be more important than that?” Check out the gameplay trailer for Anthelion: https://youtu.be/Ormoa2khyWo And here’s a peek at Splash Bash: https://youtu.be/vsctGe6B6iA HELP: THE GAME is available through Steam, priced at £9.99, $14.99 and €14.99.

ECITB offers the industry a new deal on skills

The consultation is prompted by government proposals to introduce a new levy on companies with a pay bill in excess of £3million to fund the training costs of apprenticeships from April 2017. The ECITB is keen to ensure that the benefits of its widely supported current industrial training levy for the engineering construction industry are not lost or negatively impacted by the new demands of the Apprenticeship Levy. Chris Claydon, chief executive of the ECITB explains: “The need for home-grown skills have never been greater. We must ensure that we do not damage the great work that has been achieved in ensuring a consistent supply of skilled labour.  The economy is facing new uncertainties, and we need to make sure that support is available to companies to keep on investing in essential training. As a model of an  employer-led body we have spent many months meeting and discussing with our in-scope employers to ensure that our proposals reflect the will and needs of the engineering construction industry. ”   The proposals contained in the consultation, which will conclude in late September, are based around recognition of the economic realities for companies operating in the infrastructure and process industry space.  The ECITB works with companies across the energy sector, including the offshore oil and gas, power generation and nuclear industries, as well as many process businesses, such as chemicals and pharmaceuticals.  The proposals offer phased financial relief by temporarily reducing the industrial training levy to ensure that skills are not lost to the industry and wider UK economy.  “We [the ECITB] are offering an injection of reserve capital into the system in order to maintain the same level of support, “ says Claydon. “These are tough times for our member companies and we need to help them mitigate uncertainty.” The ECITB has also undertaken a restructuring exercise to ensure that it continues to offer better value. This includes reshaping its regional operations to be more responsive, shifting its focus to policy as well as skills delivery and slimming down its administrative function.  Claydon says, “this is all helping to push money forward into front line support.” In 2016, the ECITB celebrates its 25thyear as industry skills organisation for engineering construction. In this time it has helped over 1.4 million learners and consistently delivered industry-ready qualifications and set standards that have helped the industry to grow and weather many economic storms.  The ECITB is confident that the latest proposals will also enable the industry to navigate the next few years successfully and sustainably.  -Ends-

CHEF DAMIAN WAWRZYNIAK SERVES UP AUTHENTIC POLISH FARE AT  THE POLISH EMBASSY IN LONDON

Fresh out of the Fifteen by Jamie Oliver kitchen, rising star Damian Wawrzyniak has served up his signature authentic Polish fare to more than 100 delegates including VIPs and diplomats in the heart of London. The banquet was held for the inauguration of the Polish Presidency of the Visegrad Group (V4). One of Poland’s most in demand exports with a raft of recent TV appearances under his belt including a stint in Mary Berry’s Easter Feast kitchen and BBC Breakfast, Wawrzyniak was appointed to design and execute the high end banquet. Held at the Polish Embassy in London, Chef Wawrzyniak’s menu for the occasion paid homage to Poland’s food culture, delighting the 250 guests with tastes of home. Dishes included Damian’s Pate served with sourdough bread and pickles, onions and cress, moreish Pierogies and delectable goose and duck croquettes. The taste sensation concluded with Chef Wawrzyniak’s signature Babka – a sweet cake topped with chocolate and studded with nuts. Chef Wawrzyniak’s modern interpretation of Polish cuisine delighted the VIPs and politicians gathered at the event. He said, “Designing and then cooking up the menu for the banquet at the Polish Embassy in London was a fantastic creative challenge and a real honour. The guests loved the food - some of them were in Poland back in the 80s and my flavours brought back great memories, which is the ultimate compliment! Others had never tried Polish food before and fell in love with the tastes and flavours of the dishes.” The Visegrad Group represents the interests of four EU Member States from Central Europe, and Polish Presidency begins in a very particular moment. In the last 25 years, the V4 Countries have developed a close cooperation based on common values and interests, while the Group has become a well-known symbol of a successful initiative for pursuing joint interests, and a central element of cooperation in Central Europe. Poland took over the Presidency of the Group from the Czech Republic and will hold the seat until July 2017. In addition to larger parties and events, Chef Wawrzyniak also holds private dining events. To find out more visit http://www.chefconsultant.co.uk

Pension Scandal Victim Finally Receives Payout After Hiring Get Claims Advice

A victim of the growing mis-sold pension scandal has finally received a long-awaited compensation payout, after hiring the services of Get Claims Advice. The firm has released a video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oVhTRhHR_lM&list=PLZJ_R_CZukd08XPYrEFME_Zi6bxA-vFvF), which details the case and its eventual resolution, giving hope to others who find themselves in the same stressful situation. Roy was left devastated when pension investments he placed into a Self-Invested Personal Pension went into liquidation, taking his full retirement fund with it. The financial advice firm which advised Roy on the initial investment then went bankrupt, leaving nobody for the Financial Ombudsman to chase in order to reclaim Roy’s money. After filling out endless complicated forms and documents in order to reclaim his pension funds through the Financial Service Compensation Scheme – whose role it is to facilitate payouts to victims of such scandals - Roy was stunned to discover his claim had been rejected. Roy puts this down to the incredibly complex claims application process, which he admits was a problem for him due to the nature of the forms and his own lack of experience in the industry. Fortunately, Roy made a last-ditch attempt to reclaim his retirement funds by turning to claims management company, Get Claims Advice. In a happy turn of events, he was able to recover his complete retirement fund – but the entire process left Roy wondering why the Financial Service Compensation Scheme made things so difficult for the layman, when that’s exactly who they’re supposed to be assisting. Roy says, “I’m thrilled I turned to Get Claims Advice Ltd to help me reclaim the money. If it had been left up to me, I’d never have received my retirement fund back. I can’t praise the team enough.” Luke Sharman, Director of Get Claims Advice, says, “We’re huge fans of the work done by the FSCS, but the complicated paperwork and lengthy claims process can be off-putting for many individuals who have been mis-sold pensions. When faced with a choice between going it alone, claiming through the FSCS, or turning to a claims management company for assistance, clients almost always take the CMC option. There are fees involved with this route, but clients would rather pay for this service than battle through the process alone.” Mr Sharman adds, “A mis-sold pension has the power to devastate lives, and while a direct claim to the FSCS remains a daunting and stressful process, many will continue to trust firms like Get Claims Advice to take on their claim. We’ll always keep our rates as long as possible for this reason, so victims can reclaim their hard-earned pensions and pull their retirement prospects back from the brink.” Roy’s story goes a long way to highlighting the huge gulf in scandal awareness between those working in financial services, and the general public who use these services.

Peek Creative Delivers Sophisticated Animation for ex-Merril Lynch Bosses’ New Fintech Venture

Peek Creative has developed a sophisticated new animation for two ex-Merril Lynch directors, who have unveiled a brand new Fintech solution to help clients manage their cash deposits. Insignis Asset Management sought Peek’s creative services as they tried to come up with a way to explain their new company’s proposition to their target market of businesses, charities and individuals. The result is a stylish animated video which explains how Insignis works, as well as cementing the brand’s status as a respected, trustworthy entrant into the financial technology sphere. Steve Creamer, Creative Director of Peek Creative, says, “Our brief for this particular client was to come up with a sophisticated way to explain Insignis’ proposition to its target market. The key offer for Insignis was to cash rich clients who are trying to get the best returns on their cash – so we needed to create a video which explained the benefits of Insignis Asset Management while keeping an air of exclusivity, and convey the importance of trust. We also had to strike a perfect balance between simplifying the business’ proposition without dumbing it down, so to speak.” Insignis Asset Management enables clients to deposit cash starting from £100,000 into a hub account in their own name. From here, the funds are electronically distributed to bank accounts that offer the best returns, maximising the yields on cash deposits. The creative team at Peek worked with the client’s logo to develop the complete visual style, storyboard and illustrations for the video. The result was an animation which delighted both the client and their prospective audiences. “The video created by Peek brought our website to life ahead of the press launch and provided an invaluable and efficient marketing tool to tell our story. The website analytics already back up our perception of the video as the most powerful piece of the site; creating stickiness while educating potential customers of the concept,” said Giles Hutson, CEO of Insignis Asset Management.

Pallet truck specialists looking forward to potential commerce crossover

There’s no denying that the retail landscape is changing. As the world races towards a more digitally-focussed mind-set, consumers expect much more from retailers. Which is why it has come as no surprise to Midland Pallet Trucks, one of the country’s premier providers of pallet and pump trucks to a range of sectors, that multinational e-commerce site, eBay, is considering opening pop-up stores in Sainsbury’s outlets. Online sales currently make up around 14 percent of overall sales in the UK – and that number is growing every year. In fact, this signals a 2 percent increase on the same time last year. However despite many predicting that the high street is dying, the fact there is still a considerable percentage of sales made in shops is drawing traditional online retailer out onto the high street. Phil Chesworth Director of Midland Pallet Trucks, said, “There’s no denying that eBay has taken the world by storm. Completely overhauling the way we shop, it is one of the most visited ecommerce websites on the internet. However although consumers are used to purchasing online now, some do still feel the need to physically see and touch an item before making a purchase. eBay is really leading the way with this new idea, and I think it will only be a matter of time before others follow suit.” According to sources, the online giant is looking into the possibilities of opening either pop ups or click and collect points at some Sainsbury’s estates. Coming as the supermarket continues its acquisition of the Home Retail Group, which is the parent company of Argos, it ties into the idea that some Argos outlets will become concessions within some of Sainsbury's larger stores. With 162 million registered users and 25 million sellers, eBay is one of the largest C2C platforms on the internet. However the company already has an established partnership in place with Argos. Allowing UK sellers to drop off sold products at its brand's stores for either buyers to collect or for Argos to deliver, the two have been working hand in hand for some time. eBay has also already experimented with pop up shops prior to this. The ecommerce company hit the headlines and provided consumers a vision of social commerce of the future when it opened a handful of shops in London in 2012.

Hop Hosiery Subscription Service Offers £5 Off For First Sign-Ups

Hop Hosiery, the brand new tights subscription service, is offering ladies £5 off their first box with the code ‘firsthopbox’, so that new subscribers can see how the exciting new service works. Hop Hosiery was created by Joanne Walsh after she grew tired of running out of tights and having to rush to the shops for new ones before a meeting or a date. The service delivers a pack of tights to the doors of subscribers at regular intervals, taking tights off their to-do list and ensuring they’ll never have to go bare-legged. Ms Walsh said, “I’m thrilled that the service has now launched, and I’m very pleased to offer £5 off subscribers’ first orders with the code ‘firsthopbox’. Subscribers will be able to choose from a variety of sizes, deniers, types and shades to fit their needs, as well as deciding how often they’d like their tights to be delivered. They can be delivered weekly, fortnightly, monthly or every other month – so if you’re someone who goes through tights fast, there’ll always be some on the way to you!” Hop Hosiery was designed to make life easier for women who spend much of their working week wearing tights. The collection, therefore, is broad enough to cater to as many people as possible, without providing too much overwhelming choice.  “I actually came up with the idea for Hop Hosiery after I hopelessly went online to order a bulk delivery of tights one weekend. I was so overwhelmed by the choice and variety – there had to be an easier way. We currently offer five different shades, with more in the works, three different sizes, and the choice of sheer, opaque, semi-opaque and control tights.” Ladies ordering a Hop Box (available for £10.95 with delivery, or just £5.95 with the discount code) will be able to select either three pairs of sheers, two pairs of opaques or two pairs of control tights. Once the order has been placed, the Hop Box will be delivered regularly, in a conveniently-sized box that fits through all standard letterboxes – so busy subscribers won’t need to worry about signing for a parcel or retrieving their Hop Box from a neighbour.

Free to play games website My Real Games, with over 25 exciting categories and genres to choose from, offers a low-cost PC gaming solution for players who are looking for something different from the console.

Now, after years of enjoying popularity across the globe, home gaming consoles worldwide may be getting left to gather dust as players search for new formats of electronic fun. The latest financial report from Microsoft, creators of the much-loved, contemporary gaming console Xbox, revealed that profits of the Xbox One was 33% less than it was this time last year, suggesting  a fall in sales of the hardware. Although much of this trend could be due to the mass adoption of mobile, online and app-based gaming, fans of a robust, physical format of play could be turning to the PC as a way to experience gaming in a different way. Nikolai Veselov from MyRealGames.com said, “The games console has been a popular and accessible way to enjoy gaming for decades, but it would come as no surprise that loyal fans of the console could grow tired on the same experience. Where it was once considered more niche than console gaming, playing on a PC could be a sensible place to turn for someone who still wants an authentic, big screen gaming experience with a difference.” Veselov continued, “PC gaming however is known for being highly technical, with dedicated members of the scene spending large amounts of money on custom building the computers from scratch, to cope with the processing power that is needed. For those that want a switch in gameplay without the large investment, My Real Games can help.” When heading to the free gaming website, no specialist computer is required to enable access to the plethora of titles on offer.

cartime Director Matt Kay: "UK Used Car Market Still Soaring"

Figures from Experian show used car sales rising at the fastest rate since before the financial crisis. So why are we choosing to buy used? The used car market is growing at its fastest rate since before the recession, with sales up by 7% in the final quarter of 2015. The latest figures released by Experian show that 1.63 million second-hand models were sold, with the North East selling more than any other region; a year-on-year rise of 8.3%. The North West was not far behind, with a rise of 7.3%; more than London, the South West and the whole of Scotland. Every region in the UK saw a rise – so why are we buying used? Principal consultant at Experian, Andrew Ballard said: “New car registrations have been buoyant for the last four years, so it’s natural to see this reflected in used car sales now. Vehicles sold as ‘new’ in the years since 2012 are coming back to traders as used within the typical change cycle. In some cases, motorists are finding it viable to trade their car in before their finance deal reaches maturity.” The ready availability of finance deals such as HP (hire purchase) or PCP (personal contract purchases) are putting the most prestige makes and models at more affordable prices. Dealers now offer competitive finance packages that are hassle-free and easy to arrange; much more so than a standard bank loan. Drivers who might have delayed upgrading their car before, are actively becoming buyers again. Some might be tempted by the new car smell, but for many the value of a used model, when combined with an accessible, affordable finance deal, remains the most appealing. Director of cartime (http://www.cartime.co.uk/) in Bury, Matt Kay (http://www.cartime.co.uk/matt-kay-cartime/), is predicting the rise in used sales to continue, thanks to the help of the late-model cars now coming back on to the used market. Matt said: “While the new car market is currently strong, we expect that to level off in 2016. The supply of late-model used cars is only going to increase and used-car sales will receive even more of a boost, helped by the availability of finance. Customers also find that when buying used on a dealer-arranged finance plan, they can afford a much higher standard of car. The huge choice in cars and deals is making used models more attractive to buyers than ever before.” The used-car dealership (http://www.cartime.co.uk/) on Bell Lane currently has more than 400 makes and models available, plus a range of 0 per cent finance deals. cartime is currently also offering a payment holiday, so customers can drive away today and pay nothing for five whole months. To see the range head down to the showroom or visit www.cartime.co.uk. Got a model in mind? Call the team on 0161 825 8448 (http://tel:01618258448).

Unibet Group plc - Interim report January – June 2016 (unaudited)

“Investments drive sustained market-share gains with 57 per cent increase in Gross winnings revenue (47 per cent in constant currency)“ "The quarter was characterised by the Euro 2016 which provided a new all-time high in customer activity and continued strong growth. Margins in the tournament were significantly higher in July than in June. If the margins had been consistent across the tournament, then Gross winnings revenue for the second quarter would have been around GBP 3 million higher.” “Gross winnings revenue in the Nordic region grew by 48 per cent (21 per cent organic in constant currency), while Western Europe grew by over 71 per cent (37 per cent organic in constant currency). Of the Gross winnings revenue 35 per cent was from locally regulated markets.” “Gross winnings revenues from the mobile channel more than doubled in GBP (74 per cent organic growth in constant currency) and accounted for 63 per cent of the total Gross winnings revenue in the second quarter.” “As in previous tournament years, we invested heavily in marketing both for new customer acquisition and reactivation of existing customers. While this has a short term effect in reducing profits, we are confident that this as proven previously will drive sustained growth in Gross winnings revenue and profits. For the quarter, marketing was 30 per cent of Gross winnings revenue, but for the full year we still expect it to average a few percentage points below 30 per cent.” “In the period from 1 to 24 July 2016, average daily Gross winnings revenue in GBP has more than doubled compared to the same period in 2015. Adjusting for the unusually high margin on the final stages of the Euros, the impact of exchange rate changes and acquisitions, the organic constant currency growth is close to 50 per cent,” says Henrik Tjärnström, CEO of Unibet Group. Today, Wednesday 27 July 2016, Unibet Group’s CEO Henrik Tjärnström will host a presentation in English at FinancialHearings, Operaterrassen in Stockholm at 9.00 CEST.

Bring your bucket and spade: urban beach arrives at the Coppergate Centre

A huge delivery of premium quality sand has marked the arrival of an exciting new addition to York city centre, as the Coppergate Centre prepares to open its very own urban beach – Coppergate Strand! Even as a team of intrepid beach-builders were levelling 15 tonnes of sand, children were clamouring to jump into the city centre’s largest sand pit.  However, they will have to wait until the weekend to enjoy the beach, as preparation work continues until its official opening this Saturday (29 July).  Recreating a classic British beach scene, the sand will be surrounded by wind breaks, with a host of buckets, spades, windmills and sand moulds – as well as a few deckchairs for anyone who fancies knotting a hanky on their head and braving the British summer sun! The name – Coppergate Strand – is of Viking origin, as ‘strond’ is the Norse word for ‘beach’.  Indeed, The Strand in London was a sandy area by the riverside during the time of the Vikings, and its name has stuck for over 1000 years! “The benches in Coppergate are always a popular place for people to sit during the summer, so we thought that creating our own urban beach was a great way to give families some chill-out time in the city centre this summer,” comments the Coppergate Centre’s manager, Pippa Unwin.  “The stores in the Coppergate Centre sell everything you might need for a beach holiday, from sunscreen and sunglasses to beachwear and flip-flops, so you don’t need to wait until you get home to try out your beach attire!  You can even cool down with cold drinks and ice creams available – perfect for anyone who wants the beach experience without having to face the traffic jams on the A64!” A special foot-washing area has been set up so that no-one has to wander around York with uncomfortably sandy feet.  Whatever the British summer, Coppergate Strand will remain open throughout the school holidays.  The Coppergate Centre is the only shopping centre within York’s city walls, offering visitors a combination of great shopping, culture and food and drink.  It is home to the new JORVIK on Tour exhibition in York St. Mary’s, as well as stores including Fenwick, TopShop, Body Shop, Charles Clinkard, Clarks and Boots. ENDS Pictures show: Seven year old Rhiannon Commins from York is the first to try out the summer beach at York's Coppergate Centre For further media information or photographs, please contact: Jay Commins Pyper York Limited Tel:         01904 500698 Email:    jay@pyperyork.co.uk

Hyundain vauhti kiihtyy Suomen MM-rallissa

Suomen MM-ralli starttaa Jyväskylässä huomenna. Hyundai esittelee rallin yhteydessä täysin uuden Hyundai IONIQ hybrid –mallin, uuden Hyundai i20 Active –mallin ja esillä on myös uudistunut Hyundai Santa Fe. Hyundailla on ollut kaikkien aikojen paras alkuvuosi Euroopassa. Alkuvuonna 2016 Hyundain myynti Euroopassa kohosi ennätyslukemiin, 261 586 myytyyn autoon. Edellisvuoteen verrattuna Hyundain myynti kasvoi 10,2 prosenttia. Myös Suomessa Hyundain myyntilukemat ovat olleet alkuvuoden ajan nousussa ja kasvua viime vuoteen on ollut 18,3 %. Suomessa suosituin Hyundai-malli on myös rallin pikataipaleilla esiintyvä i20. Täysin uusi IONIQ-mallisto Hyundai IONIQ on maailman ensimmäinen kolme sähköistä voimalinjaa tarjoava automallisto. Hyundai esittelee IONIQ-mallistolla uuden lähestymistavan, jossa tinkimätön design ja ajokokemus yhdistyvät innovatiivisiin teknologioihin. Jyväskylässä ennakkoesittelyssä olevat IONIQ hybrid -mallit tulevat markkinoille uudella Kappa 1.6 GDI –suorasuihkutus bensiinimoottorilla. Moottori on räätälöity toimimaan hybrid-malleissa yhdessä pehmeästi vaihtavan kuusinopeuksisen kaksoiskytkinvaihteiston kanssa. Sähkömoottori mahdollistaa myös puhtaasti sähköllä ajamisen ja tarjoaa kuljettajan käyttöön heti moottorin koko vääntöalueen. IONIQ hybrid-mallin sähkömoottori tuottaa tehoa 32 kW (43,5 hv) ja vääntöä 170 Nm. Voimansa moottori saa takaistuinten alle sijoitetuista 1,56 kWh litium-ioni-polymeeri –akuista. Yhdessä 1.6 GDI-bensiinimoottorin kanssa se tarjoaa maksimitehon 103,6 kW (141 hv) ja 265 Nm:n väännön. Auto kiihtyy 185 km:n huippunopeuteen, ja yhdistetty CO2-päästö on 79 g/km. IONIQ Hybrid-mallin polttoaineenkulutus on vain 3,4 litraa / 100km. IONIQ on jo voittanut virtaviivaisella muotoilullaan arvostetun ja himoitun vuoden 2016 Red Dot –muotoilupalkinnon. Malli on jo kuudes Hyundai, joka on saanut Red Dot -palkinnon kolmen viimeisen vuoden aikana. Hyundai tarjoaa IONIQ-mallille koko autoteollisuuden parhaan takuun, 5 vuotta ilman kilometrirajaa, sekä lisäksi korkeajänniteakuille 8 vuoden / 200.000 kilometrin takuun. IONIQ-malliston ennakkomyynti käynnistyy Suomessa alkusyksystä. IONIQ hybrid ja IONIQ electric –mallit tulevat myyntiin ensimmäisenä syksyn aikana ja IONIQ plug-In 2017 alkuvuoden aikana. Uusi ja monipuolinen i20 Active crossover  Hyundai esittelee Jyväskylässä uuden i20 Activen, joka on kompakti crossover-malli elämäntyyliltään aktiivisille asiakkaille. i20 Active erottuu perinteisistä B-segmentin autoista näyttävän crossover-muotoilunsa ansiosta. Uutuusmalli perustuu avaraan ja mukavaan viisioviseen i20-malliin, mutta i20 Activen ulkoisista osista yli 50% on kuitenkin täysin uusia. i20 Activen tunnusomainen crossover-ilme on saatu aikaan jousituksen säädöillä, joiden ansiosta sen maavara on 20 mm korkeampi kuin viisiovisessa i20:ssä. Myös kuljettajan istuin on entistä korkeammalla, joten autoon / autosta on helpompi nousta ja näkyvyys ohjaamosta on erinomainen. i20 Activen 1,0 litran turbomoottori tuottaa tehoa 73,6 kW (100 hv) ja on viritetty optimaalisen polttoainetalouden saavuttamiseksi. Turbon seurana on 5-vaihteinen manuaalivaihteisto. Toinen moottorivaihtoehto on automaattivaihteistolla varustettu 1,4-litrainen bensiinimoottori. Uudistunut Santa Fe on hienostunut ja innovatiivinen katumaasturi Hyundain uraauurtava iso SUV-malli Santa Fe on kokenut muotoilullisia uudistuksia ja saanut uusia, edistyneitä turvallisuus- ja mukavuusominaisuuksia. Suosittu katumaasturi on pisimpään Euroopassa myynnissä ollut Hyundain automalli. Santa Fe on muodostunut vuosien varrella ikoniseksi malliksi Hyundaille ja saavuttanut vankan maineen hienostuneena ja laadukkaana autona. Uuden Santa Fen muotoilu pitää sisällään Hyundain uutta mallistoa yhdistäviä visuaalisia tekijöitä, kuten uudistuneen kuusikulmaisen etusäleikön. Tien päällä uuden Santa Fen näyttävyyttä lisäävät uudistettuihin etu- ja takapuskureihin integroidut uudenmalliset sumuvalot sekä LED-päiväajovalot. Santa Fen sisätilat ovat hienostuneet ja viihtyisät. Mittariston sekä tietoviihde- ja navigointijärjestelmän parannukset tukevat käsitystä teknisesti edistyneestä autosta. Tyyli ja toiminnallisuus ovat Santa Fen ohjaamossa täydellisessä tasapainossa. Uudet materiaalit ja värit vahvistavat sitä premium-vaikutelmaa, joka on jo muodostunut Hyundain lippulaivamallin tavaramerkiksi. Uuden Santa Fen optimoitu moottori- ja vaihteistotarjonta on sama kuin kolmannen sukupolven mallissa, mutta moottori on säädetty tiukkoja Euro6-päästövaatimuksia vastaavaksi. Tehokas 2,2-litrainen CRDi-dieselmoottori tuottaa nyt tehoa 200 hv ja vääntöä 440 Nm.

H1 retail real estate investment volumes in EMEA remain 15% above five year average; decrease 19% year-on-year

LONDON, United Kingdom, 27th July 2016 - JLL research reports that despite an overall decrease in retail real estate investment in Europe in the first half of 2016, volumes remain above five year average levels and the flow of institutional equity targeting exposure to the sector continues to increase year-on-year. Direct investment in retail real estate for the half-year reached €20.7bn, representing a 19% decrease on the exceptional performance witnessed during H1 2015 when volumes reached €25.5bn driven in part by five transactions in excess of €500m and17 transactions in excess of €300m. The current fall in volumes is largely driven by a slowdown in the UK and Germany.  However, volumes increased by 14% outside these top two markets, including notable growth in countries such as Austria, Ireland, Italy, Switzerland, Romania, Hungary and Poland.  France has seen a significant jump with a 40% increase year-on-year. The largest investment deals of H1 were urban retail assets, benefitting from robust economic fundamentals and excellent connectivity. Forum Block in Helsinki, Finland, which was bought by Sponda Oyj for €576m, was the largest transaction of the first quarter, followed by Grand Central in Birmingham, UK, bought by Hammerson and Canada Pension Plan Investment Board (CPPIB) for £335m (€441m). In the second quarter, the transactions list is dominated by Blackstone’s purchase of the Blanchardstown Centre in Dublin from Green Property.  The regionally dominant centre, already the largest in Ireland, has significant development potential, with the capacity to accommodate around 148,500 sq m of additional mixed-use space. These transactions highlight the ongoing appeal of dominant, well-connected, urban mixed-use assets with strong fundamentals within our growing cities, a theme explored further in JLL’s latest global research report, Destination Retail 2016 (http://www.jll.com/services/industries/retail/destination-retail). Jeremy Eddy, European Retail Capital Markets Director, JLL, said: “We are seeing healthy levels of investment across Europe in historical terms. There is a wall of institutional money targeting the retail sector and with more to go round, more geographies are benefitting. European retail remains a defensive, safe haven investment destination particularly for those with longer investment horizons because it is less susceptible to short-term setbacks, and prime assets in particular offer a stable income. This equity continues to be largely deployed in partnership with retail expertise, as demonstrated with the Hammerson / CPPIB partnership. The amount of partnering and joint ventures between equity players, with a low cost of capital, and operators with local retail knowledge is unprecedented, and the most significant change in the market in the last decade.” James Brown, Head of European Research, JLL, comments: “While investment volumes in the full year are expected to be down on the record levels reached in 2015, they are likely to be above the five year average levels. For the most part, declining volumes are predominantly a result of a lack of liquidity, rather than any underlying weakness in market fundamentals, exemplified clearly by markets such as Germany. The amount of institutional money flowing into real estate may provide a challenge to market liquidity longer term. With investors holding for the long term, the demand and supply metrics will be challenged, limiting investment opportunities at the prime end of the market. Any impact of Brexit on the investment market will likely be largely confined to the UK, with limited degrees of contagion to the rest of the EU.”

BRITAIN’S BUSIEST GENERAL AVIATION AIRPORT SAVES TIME WITH CENTRIK

Gloucestershire Airport has taken on the cloud-based operational management system, Centrik, to help its hard-working staff boost productivity. The airport – which with more than 75,000 aircraft movements a year is Britain’s busiest general aviation airport – has replaced its labour-intensive and disparate safety management systems with Total AOC’s all-encompassing and powerful Centrik solution. Early estimates suggest that the automation and increased data management have already freed up 2.5 days a week for the airport’s Safety Manager and three days a month for the Operations Director – time savings that can then be used to increase productivity at the airport. Darren Lewington, Operations Director, Gloucestershire Airport, says: “We are a very busy airport providing an airfield for everything from microlights to corporate jets, with minimal resources. Every saving we can make counts, and Centrik has done that by making our operational management much simpler.” Gloucestershire Airport primarily makes use of Centrik’s SMS and Risk management capabilities and is currently implementing the system’s additional modules such as Training, Quality and Document Control. Lewington says: “In my position we see a lot of products designed to handle operational management. What makes Centrik different is that it was immediately obvious that it wasn’t just a software ‘fix’. It’s built around aviation and really works.” The efficiency boosts provided by Centrik mean staff can focus on strategic planning to continue growing the airport’s operations. Lewington already plans to make use of the freed-up time and greater availability of information to prepare the airport for transition to EASA. ends Notes to editor:  Total AOC (http://www.totalaoc.com/) is a team of aviation experts who offer a full support service to private and commercial operators. Their services include setting up an AOC, writing manuals, providing training and acting as post holders. Total AOC’s innovative cloud-based software, Centrik, allows clients to enjoy truly paperless AOC management and helps ensure regulatory compliance.

3D-printed Le Mans 24 Hours racing car heads to Birmingham’s Thinktank

A 450bhp racecar that competed in the 2015 24 Hours of Le Mans featuring a host of 3D printed parts will be on display at the Thinktank science museum in Birmingham from 28th July for six weeks. The car is a 300 km/h DOME S103 prototype that was fielded by British racing team Strakka Racing at the round the clock Le Mans endurance classic last year. 3D printing takes computer designs and, in the case of Strakka Racing, is used to create parts for use on the track. The parts are made by Strakka with a special printer from Stratasys. The technology has been used to design everything from parts for an Airbus to artificial human organs. “This project is a good example of how 3D printing could change the way we build racing cars," said team principal Dan Walmsley. “Strakka has shown that the parts made on printers can be just as durable as normal pieces, but we can make them faster and without expensive tooling. We could even make new parts in the garage at the track.” The team has been a frontrunner in the application of 3D printing technology in the motorsports world, utilising it for numerous uses from creating scale models for wind tunnel testing to parts for the actual car. An estimated 5 percent of the S103’s parts were 3D printed. Lisa Stallard, manager at Thinktank, Birmingham Science Museum said, “It is fantastic to be able to display a race car that has had such an international impact to our Thinktank visitors this summer. Our iconic car and motorbike collections are always popular and by displaying the Le Mans car next to them we hope visitors will enjoy seeing the contrast between the technological changes." “We are always looking for ways to showcase how developments in the scientific world, like 3D printing technology, can have a positive impact and invoke change, and Strakka’s Le Mans car is a brilliant example of this happening in the automotive industry.” The car will be on show from 28th July for six weeks at the Thinktank, an award-winning science museum in the centre of Birmingham. www.birminghammuseums.org.uk/thinktank  (http://www.birminghammuseums.org.uk/thinktank)Video of the printer making a brake duct: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nicm2CFpOow Video of the car being assembled: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SlT4oximezU

Viking treasures to join Minster displays

For generations, the city’s most precious Christian ceremonial items have been stored there, but from 1 August 2016, the Treasury in York Minster’s Undercroft will be home to a remarkable collection of Viking treasures with the opening of Jorvik: Treasures & Belief – the third touring exhibition from JORVIK Viking Centre. The new exhibition, curated by teams from York Archaeological Trust and York Minster’s Collections team, brings together a host of artefacts that illustrate the transition from the old Norse religions to Christianity, with a melding of the two faiths evidenced in precious items like coins – the preferred means of currency in Christian societies compared to the traditional ingots, bars and hack-silver of the Scandinavian countries. “York Minster already plays host to two of the finest example of early medieval Christian art – the Horn of Ulph and the York Gospels – but the items found in the Coppergate excavations show how religion was experienced by the people of Jorvik,” comments director of attractions for the JORVIK Group, Sarah Maltby.  “This is the first time that visitors will be able to see these two great Christian treasures alongside the coin die and coins that would normally form part of the JORVIK Viking Centre displays.  These help us tell the story of a society experiencing a theological change, which took elements from both Norse and Christian beliefs – silver pennies issued in the name of St Peter featuring a Viking sword or Thor’s hammer, for example.” The theme of ‘treasures’ is expanded with displays of some of the personal items found during the Coppergate dig that would have been treasured by the people of Viking-age York.  Indeed, one of the most exciting artefacts is a highly-decorated barrel padlock that would not have been used to protect valuables, but was a prized possession in its own right.  Another locking mechanism – a stapled hasp – would have been used to secure a chest, and one of the examples on display features animal heads – very similar to those found on cope chests within York Minster’s own collection.  This kind of lock may have been used to safeguard some other ‘treasures’ on display, from pan pipes to Viking jewellery, including brooches and a dragonese pin – a bone pin with an exquisitely crafted dragon’s head design that would have been worn as a sign of status and wealth by its original owner. One display which has been specially commissioned for this exhibition – and which will become a focal point within JORVIK Viking Centre itself when it re-opens next Spring – is a replica of the Middleton Cross, an ancient carved stone cross which sits in St Andrew’s Church in Middleton, Ryedale.  Carved by masons in York Minster’s stone yard to recreate what the Middleton Cross would have looked like when it was first crafted, the cross shows a Viking warrior in full armour alongside a monstrous beast.  The cross shape reflects Christian iconography, and this was probably commissioned by wealthy locals to commemorate one of their dead – a unique item that illustrates Christian and Norse religions co-existing during the Viking period. “The original cross is used as an illustration of Viking-age art in historic literature around the world, and the masons have done a remarkable job of re-imagining how the stone would have looked before time took its toll.  I am sure that visitors to the York Minster exhibition will appreciate this stunning piece of work – and that it will go on to be viewed by many millions of visitors to JORVIK Viking Centre when we reopen next year,” adds Sarah. Jorvik: Treasures & Belief runs from Monday 1 August until early 2017, when the artefacts will be returned to the new galleries in JORVIK Viking Centre.  Entry to the exhibition is included within York Minster’s standard admission price, which is £10 for adults, £9 for seniors and students and free for accompanied children, with each ticket valid for 12 months form the date of first admission. Visitors enjoying exploring York’s Viking heritage can also enjoy the two other exhibitions that form part of the JORVIK on Tour season, including Jorvik: Home & Abroad at York St. Mary’s in Coppergate, next to JORVIK Viking Centre, and a free exhibition, Jorvik: Life & Death in the Keregan Room at the newly-refurbished York Theatre Royal. “People come to York to find out about the Vikings, and even though JORVIK Viking Centre itself remains closed whilst we recover from last December’s flooding, we were delighted that partners at York Minster, York Theatre Royal and York Museums Trust were happy to host these three touring exhibitions which showcase three different aspects of York’s Norse heritage,” adds Sarah.  “Our fundraising, rebuilding and re-imagining of the JORVIK Viking Centre continues down in Coppergate, and it will be wonderful to welcome back all of the items that we’ve been sharing to once again be York’s ultimate Viking experience.

AMERICANS CONCERN OVER ZIKA IMPACTS OLYMPIC TRAVEL PLANS

Half of Americans believe the 2016 summer Olympic games should be delayed or canceled due to Zika, and almost two thirds have no interest in traveling to Rio de Janeiro or Brazil due to the virus, according to a new survey by leading travel insurance provider Allianz Global Assistance. The survey found that 71 percent of Americans would not be interested in traveling to Rio de Janeiro or Brazil for the 2016 Olympic Games, with 82 percent of respondents saying the Zika virus impacted their opinion towards traveling to South America during the summer. Forty-two percent of those respondents said that they definitely would not go, 23 percent would be less interested in going and 18 percent would go, but be worried about Zika during the trip. In fact, nearly half of Americans (49 percent) think that the Olympics should have been delayed (34 percent) or canceled (15 percent) to protect people from the virus. To this point, 48 percent would rather wait to attend the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo. Recent acts of terrorism throughout the world have also played a factor in Americans’ hesitation to travel to the Summer Olympics with 28 percent reporting terror acts have made them less interested in attending. Other factors hindering interest in traveling to the Olympics include travel costs (31 percent), safety concerns (25 percent), health concerns (11 percent), lack of interest in sports (10 percent), large crowds (8 percent), difficulty getting tickets to the games (8 percent) and lack of desire to travel (6 percent). And those that are going to the city for the games are getting in and out as fast as possible – spending half as much time in the city as previous Olympic Games. The nearly 30 percent of Americans still interested in traveling to Rio de Janeiro are enough to show a bump in traffic to the city, however this small number of travelers are keeping their trips brief. In a review of travel bookings** comparing trips from July 15-31 in 2015 and 2016, Allianz Global Assistance found there was a 273 percent increase in travel plans to Rio with 6,440 Americans expected. That said, the average trip length is only 13 days, which is far fewer than the 26-day average from the 2012 Summer Olympics in London. Whether it’s a medical issue or a travel delay, a travel insurance policy*** from Allianz Global Assistance can provide peace of mind, especially for travel outside the U.S., where many hospitals may request cash payments in the thousands before treatment even begins. Many U.S. health insurance policies (including Medicare and Medicaid) may not cover international travel; those that do may not cover the cost of medical evacuation. Allianz Global Assistance offers travel insurance through most major U.S. airlines, leading travel agents, online travel agencies and directly to consumers.

However, the majority of our residential development projects will be completed during the last quarter.” “Our financial position continued to develop favourably.

Order inflow for paving has been good in all market areas, including Russia. In Infra projects, we won two new projects in Sweden. In Building construction, Finland, we have a strong order book. We seek profitable growth in complex infrastructure construction in Sweden and Norway. Especially in Sweden the competition is intense and we have strengthened the local organisation to support the growth.” “Going forward, our focus remains on improving our operational result and competitiveness in all operations. The second quarter of 2016 went as planned and we are in a good position to reach our financial targets for this year.” Briefing A Finnish-language briefing for analysts and the media will be held at 12:00 noon on Thursday 28 July at Lemminkäinen’s head office.

Unless otherwise noted, the figures in brackets refer to the corresponding period in the previous year. Segment reporting, POC Residential projects for consumers recognised as income in line with sales and construction* April-June · Revenue increased by 11% to EUR 463.7 (416.1) million. At comparable exchange rates, revenue increased by 15%. · Adjusted operating profit amounted to EUR 20.2 (18.6) million and operating profit margin was 4.3% (4.5%). There were no adjustments in the period. · Order backlog increased by 21% from the end of March, amounting to EUR 2,714.1 million. · Operating cash flow after investments amounted to EUR 26.2 (113.3) million.  January-June · Revenue increased by 4% to EUR 826.1 (791.0) million. At comparable exchange rates, revenue increased by 7%. · Adjusted operating profit amounted to EUR 32.2 (39.1) million and operating profit margin was 3.9% (4.9%). There were no adjustments in the period. · Operating cash flow after investments amounted to EUR 1.1 (128.4) million. Group reporting, IFRS  Residential projects for consumers recognised as income upon completion* April-June · Revenue decreased by 14% to EUR 396.4 (462.9) million. · Operating profit amounted to EUR 6.6 (24.6) million and operating profit margin was 1.7% (5.3%). January-June · Revenue decreased by 14% to EUR 734.0 (856.8) million. · Operating profit amounted to EUR 13.3 (51.7) million and operating profit margin was 1.8% (6.0%). Guidance for 2016 specified (segment reporting, POC) The Group revenue growth is estimated to be in the range of 5–10% at comparable exchange rates. The adjusted operating profit** is estimated to grow from the level of 2015 (2015: EUR 76.0 million). The adjusted operating profit does not include material reorganisation costs or impairment. Previously, YIT estimated the revenue growth to be in the range of 0–10% at comparable exchange rates. * In segment reporting, the revenue and profit are recognised by multiplying the percentage of completion by the percentage of sale, i.e. according to the percentage of completion method, which does not fully comply with the Group’s IFRS accounting principles. According to the Group’s IFRS accounting principles, revenue from residential projects for consumers is recognised upon completion. Furthermore, in Group reporting, part of the interest expenses are capitalised according to the IAS 23 standard, which causes differences in operating profit and financial expenses between segment reporting and Group reporting. ** Due to the new guidelines from the European Securities and Market Authority concerning alternative performance measures, the performance measure “operating profit excluding non-recurring items” is replaced with “adjusted operating profit”. The content of adjustments equals items previously disclosed as nonrecurring items and consist of material reorganization costs and impairment. Adjusted operating profit is disclosed to improve comparability between reporting periods. Kari Kauniskangas, President and CEO: Our result for April–June showed an expected turn for the better, with our adjusted operating result based on segment reporting increasing by 9% year-on-year. We expect this positive trend to continue, and the outlook is good particularly in the Business Premises and Infrastructure segment and the Housing Finland and CEE segment. The result of the Business Premises and Infrastructure segment showed excellent development in the first half of the year. The segment’s revenue grew by 41% and its operating profit margin improved by 2.4 percentage points year-on-year. Growth and profitability were supported by the achievement of a significant milestone in the Tripla project currently in development in Helsinki’s Pasila district, i.e. closing of the investor deals for the Mall of Tripla. The investor deals allowed us to start the recognition of income on the project, and Tripla will play a significant role in improving our revenue growth and profitability in the coming years. We were also successful in several contracting tenders in the second quarter, which further strengthened our order backlog. The segment’s outlook is strong, and in the second half of the year, we expect the profit performance to be at the same level as in the first six months of the year. The profitability of the Housing Finland and CEE segment also turned to growth. Our key goals in the Housing Finland and CEE segment have been to gradually shift our focus to consumer sales and to maintain strong growth in the CEE countries. Positive developments were seen in both areas during the spring. In Finland consumer demand improved, and in the first half of the year, we increased our start-ups for consumers by approximately 25% year-on-year. We also launched Smartti, our new affordable and flexible concept for consumers. The demand for Smartti apartments has been pleasingly strong in the pre-marketing phase of the first projects. In addition, we achieved our goal of normalising the level of completed unsold apartments in Finland in the second quarter. The reduced need for capital release measures was favourably reflected in the segment’s profitability already in the second quarter. In the CEE countries, we started several new projects, with our first residential project in Poland being one of the most important. The high level of residential start-ups is expected to be reflected in higher sales in the CEE countries in the coming quarters. In the Housing Russia segment, cash flow was positive in line with previously set targets, but the result still showed a loss. The segment’s sales, measured in terms of the number of residential units sold, remained close to the target level, but we were forced to reduce our forecasted margins in certain projects. Our aim is to achieve a positive operating result in the second half of the year while continuing to reduce the amount of invested capital in Russia.

for consumers are estimated to be around 90 units (7/15: around 90) in Finland, over 60 units (7/15: around 60) in the CEE countries and over 200 units (7/15: around 200) in Russia. Outlook for 2016 Guidance specified (Segment reporting, POC)  The Group revenue growth is estimated to be in the range of 5–10% at comparable exchange rates. The adjusted operating profit is estimated to grow from the level of 2015 (2015: EUR 76.0 million). The adjusted operating profit does not include material reorganisation costs or impairment. Previously, YIT estimated the revenue growth to be in the range of 0–10% at comparable exchange rates. In addition to the market outlook, the 2016 guidance is based on the following factors: At the end of June, 50% of YIT’s order backlog was sold. Projects already sold and signed pre-agreements are estimated to contribute over 60% of H2/2016 revenue. The rest of the revenue estimate is based on estimated new sales during 2016 and capital release actions. In Business Premises and Infrastructure, the profit performance is expected to be on the level of the first half of 2016. The demanding market situation in Russia is expected to keep the profitability of Housing Russia on a low level. Similarly to the year 2015, the investor projects’ share of revenue is estimated to remain high in Housing Finland and CEE, which will impact the segment’s adjusted operating profit margin negatively. The execution of the capital release program started in autumn 2013 will continue actively in 2016, and the capital release actions are expected to have a negative effect on the adjusted operating profit margin. Market outlook Finland In Finland, the macroeconomic uncertainty is estimated to affect the residential and business premises markets also in 2016. Consumer demand is estimated to pick up slightly and the demand to focus especially on small, affordable apartments in growth centres. The investor activity is estimated remain on a good level but even more focus will be paid on the location. Residential price polarization is estimated to continue especially between growth centres and the rest of Finland. Access to mortgage financing is estimated to remain good. In Finland, the tenants’ demand for business premises is estimated to remain modest. The real estate investors’ activity is expected to remain on a good level with focus on prime locations in the capital region. Business premises contracting is estimated to remain active. Political support for new infrastructure projects is estimated to revitalise the infrastructure market. High activity in the construction market has resulted in lack of resources. Russia The Russian economy is not expected to weaken further, but the visibility is weak and economic uncertainty is estimated to continue to have a negative impact also on the residential market. The construction cost inflation is expected to moderate. The nominal residential prices are estimated to remain stable. Demand is estimated to focus especially on small apartments. The CEE countries In the CEE countries, the demand in the residential and business premises markets is expected to be supported by the improved economic situation. Residential prices are estimated to increase in the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Lithuania, and to remain stable in Poland, Estonia and Latvia. The construction costs are estimated to increase slightly. Access to mortgage financing is expected to remain good and interest rates to remain on a low level.

Attendo’s report for the second quarter 2016: Substantial increase in new nursing homes

Comments by Henrik Borelius, CEO: “The quarter shows stable growth and good margin development mainly driven by own operations.  Our long-term efforts to grow own units, both organically and through acquisitions, have paid off and the quarter was the strongest ever in terms of new beds under construction. In Finland the work with the SOTE reform continues in a positive way. In Sweden the reporting on shortage of nursing home beds continues which confirms the large need to expand capacity. Own operations show continued strong growth, both organic and acquired. The increase is mainly attributable to new own homes and improved occupancy in units that were under start-up during the corresponding quarter last year. We continue to invest in new own nursing homes and during the quarter three units were opened, one in Sweden and two in Finland and the number of homes under construction increased sharply. In Sweden and Finland combined, the construction of 11 units began which will add 480 new beds. Attendo is an attractive partner for entrepreneurs who want to divest their operation. During the quarter, two new acquisitions were welcomed to Attendo Finland and one within home care in Sweden. The acquisitions added 370 new beds under construction, which together with Attendo’s own development of new units resulted in 1,469 beds under construction at the end of the quarter. This is the highest level ever in Attendo’s history. On the first of July this year, we completed the acquisition of Samsa which will strengthen Attendo’s offering within highly specialized care for people with disabilities. In Outsourcing operations net sales declined compared to the second quarter 2015 due to ending of contracts. During the quarter, Attendo won new contracts with estimated annual revenue of SEK 210m and lost contracts with estimated annual revenue of SEK 20m. Net sales in Staffing operations shows a stable development. Our earlier assessment that both outsourcing and staffing will continue to be challenging markets remains. Attendo’s systematic quality work showed a continued stable development and positive results during the quarter. Attendo’s vision empowering the individual and our values are vital to us and therefore important to persistently highlight. During the quarter, the annual values week was held with discussions and activities out in the operations along with Attendo’s value coaches. In Finland, a draft for new legislation related to the SOTE reform has been presented regarding the regional authorities’ division, responsibilities and financing. In addition, a proposal to new guidelines for private health centers’ service offering has been presented, these are in line with Attendo’s current operations. We remain positive that the SOTE reform will mean greater freedom of choice and improved opportunities for private providers to contribute to the development. The Swedish Municipal Workers' Union presented in early July a new report showing that fewer 80 year old people are granted residency at nursing homes. The report shows that both older people and relatives suffer when the need for nursing homes is greater than the availability of beds, which also has become a recurring theme in the media. To summarize, Attendo showed good financial development during the first six months and a quarter with record growth in number of new beds under construction, giving great opportunities for continued growth.” Summary of the second quarter 2016 · Net sales increased by 4 percent to SEK 2,525m (2,421). Adjusted for currency effects net sales increased by 5 percent. Adjusted for currency effects and deconsolidation of subsidiary, net sales increased by 8 percent. · Operating profit (EBITA) increased by 20 percent to SEK 224m (186), representing an operating margin of 8.9 percent (7.7). · Profit for the period amounted to SEK 146m (56), which represents a profit margin of 5.8 percent (2.3) and earnings per share diluted of SEK 0.91 (0.35). · Operating cash flow amounted to SEK 157m (178). Invitation to conference call The report will be presented at a teleconference call on 28 July 2016 at 10.00am CET. The conference is hosted by Attendo's CEO Henrik Borelius and CFO Tomas Björksiöö.

IK Investment Partners to sell Vemedia to Charterhouse Capital Partners LLP

The combination of Vemedia and Cooper will create a European market leader in the OTC drugs sector. The two businesses are highly complementary, and will be well positioned to lead the further consolidation of the European OTC drugs industry. Vemedia, the market leader of OTC drugs in the Netherlands, has been owned by the IK 2007 Fund since December 2012. With IK’s support, the Group has invested heavily behind key brands Valdispert (calming & sleeping) and Excilor (medicated foot care). Additionally, Vemedia entered the French market, expanded its export business, and completed six add-on acquisitions, of which Oenobiol and Stardea (both completed during 2016) are the most notable. “During IK’s ownership, Vemedia has shown an impressive growth, both organic and through add-on acquisitions, doubling its sales and substantially expanding its product offering. It has been a pleasure working with Yvan Vindevogel, Chairman of Vemedia, Rob and his team, and we are confident that Vemedia will continue its growth trajectory together with Charterhouse and Cooper,” said Remko Hilhorst, Partner at IK Investment Partners and advisor to the IK 2007 Fund.  “We see a good cultural and commercial fit between Cooper and Vemedia. The two businesses are highly complementary, with Cooper having a strong footprint in France, and Vemedia across the Netherlands, Belgium, France, Italy, Spain, Portugal and Hong Kong. Together we will leverage our strong market position to pursue industry consolidation opportunities,” said Francis Doblin, CEO of Cooper. “Recent organic initiatives and acquisitions have shown that Vemedia is a platform for growth and consolidation in the European OTC drugs market, providing a strong rationale for the acquisition. Over the coming months we will work with both management teams to integrate the businesses and identify further consolidation opportunities,” said Charterhouse. “Thanks to the support from IK and the hard work of our employees, Vemedia has expanded significantly at the same time as improving the underlying performance of the business during the last four years. We are pleased with the opportunity to cooperate with Cooper under Charterhouse’s ownership, which will enable our continued growth and international expansion,” said Rob Drenth, CEO of Vemedia.  Completion of the transaction is subject to customary approvals.

Scania Interim Report January–June 2016

Summary of the first six months of 2016 · Operating income amounted to SEK 1,348 m. (4,737), negatively impacted by a provision of SEK 3.8 billion related to the European Commission’s competition investigation  · Operating income excluding items affecting comparability rose by 9 percent to SEK 5,148 m. (4,737), resulting in an operating margin of 10.3 (10.1) percent  · Net sales rose by 7 percent to SEK 50,110 m. (46,798) · Cash flow amounted to SEK -492 m. (1,106) in Vehicles and Services Comments by Henrik Henriksson, President and CEO“Scania’s sales reached an all-time high at SEK 50.1 billion and the company showed a strong operational performance in the first half of 2016. Higher vehicle volume in Europe and increased service revenue had a positive impact on earnings while currency rate effects and lower deliveries in Latin America impacted negatively. The high investment level related to Scania’s investment in a new truck generation also had an impact on earnings. Scania’s market share in Europe continued on a high level and amounted to 17.1 percent during the first half of 2016, compared to 17.2 percent in 2015. The replacement need and economic situation in Europe continues to have a positive impact on demand for trucks. The weak performance continued in Latin America, primarily related to Brazil. In Eurasia, Russia now appears to have bottomed out at a low level. However, the outlook for Brazil and Russia is still uncertain. In Buses and coaches, the demand trend is positive, mainly due to strong order bookings in Mexico and Iran. In Engines, demand fell in all regions. Service revenue amounted to SEK 10.5 billion during the first half of 2016, an increase of 9 percent in local currency. Financial Services reported operating income of SEK 506 million and credit losses remain at low levels. In August Scania will initiate the launch of its largest ever investment − the new truck generation. It constitutes an important part of Scania’s ambition to become a leader in sustainable transport, where partnerships and continued digitalisation will play an increasingly important role. In light of the European Commission’s Statement of Objections and recent developments in the competition investigation, Scania is now, in accordance with relevant accounting principles and a prudent approach, making a provision of SEK 3.8 billion. Scania has fully cooperated with the European Commission during the investigation but contests the Commission’s view. The company will fully exercise its rights of defence in the ongoing investigation.” Contact personsSusanna BerlinInvestor RelationsTel. +46 8 553 861 12Mobil tel. +46 70 086 05 02 Erik LjungbergCorporate RelationsTel. +46 8 553 835 57Mobile tel. +46 73 988 35 57

ExpreS2ion Biotech announces clinical trial update for the PamVac (Placental Malaria Vaccine) phase I study

Placental malaria Women, who have acquired immunity against malaria during childhood, nevertheless become susceptible to malaria again during their first pregnancies. Parasites accumulate in the placenta, where a combination of altered blood flow and expression of chondroitin sulphate A (CSA) provides a new niche for parasites to sequester. Malaria in pregnant women thus constitutes a major health problem in areas south of the Sahara, manifesting as severe disease, anemia in the mother, impaired fetal development, low birth weight or spontaneous abortion. Placental malaria has been estimated by the WHO to be responsible for 20,000 maternal and 200,000 infant deaths annually. Fortunately, women acquire immunity against placental malaria, and in malaria endemic areas the average birth weight is significantly higher among second- and third- compared to first-born babies. This relatively fast development of protection has raised the hope that a vaccine for placental malaria can be developed. Worldwide collaborations on the vaccine In 2003 Professor Ali Salanti and others at University of Copenhagen discovered the antigen VAR2CSA, which enable parasite accumulation in the placenta. Since then collaborations with many groups around the world, especially Professor Philippe Deloron at Institut de Recherche pour le Développement, France, has enabled the preclinical development of the vaccine. The European Vaccine Initiative has been instrumental in the mobilization of funds and in the clinical development of the vaccine, where its fast-track strategy is implemented allowing a more efficient development of the vaccine candidate. The phase Ia clinical trial is led by Professor Benjamin Mordmüller (University of Tübingen) and the phase Ib trial is led by Dr. Saadou Issifou (Institut de Recherche Clinique du Bénin). Preparations for a Phase II clinical trial are led by Professor Achille Massougbodji (Université d'Abomey-Calavi), Dr Jean-Philippe Chippaux (Institut de Recherche pour le Developement) and Dr Adrian JF Luty (Institut de Recherche pour le Développement). ExpreS2ion Biotech contributed to the collaboration through supply of protein antigen variants for selection of the best candidate, as well as developing the production cell line and manufacturing process. Copenhagen University obtained a license to the ExpreS2 system for the production of the PAMVAC vaccine antigen. The clinical trial To induce high concentrations of specific IgGs, subjects will receive escalating doses of PAMVAC vaccine antigen adjuvanted with Alhydrogel, GLA-emulsion or GLA-liposome. Three injections with the same dosage and adjuvant will be done, each 28 days apart (Day 0, 28 and 56). Dosage escalation will be staggered to ensure safety during the trial. Control subjects will receive physiological saline instead of the vaccine. The clinical trial is a phase I, staggered, two-center, dose-escalation trial. The trial will be conducted in two stages. The first in Germany (first in man and dose escalation) and the second in a malaria-endemic area in the target group (randomized, controlled, dose-finding). First in man administration and dose escalation from 20 to 50 μg per injection of PAMVAC adjuvanted with Alhydrogel, GLA-emulsion or GLA-liposome will be done in healthy, malaria-naïve adults in Germany (phase 1a). Subsequently, PAMVAC will be administered to healthy, lifelong malaria exposed nulligravid women in Benin at doses of 50 and 100 μg, adjuvanted with Alhydrogel and GLA-emulsion (phase Ib). In Benin, one group will receive a placebo control (physiological saline). Allocation to placebo, PAMVAC+Alhydrogel or PAMVAC+GLA-emulsion, will be randomized. Each dose-escalation is conditional on a positive safety assessment by an independent safety monitoring board (ISMB) and sponsor approval. One individual of each PAMVAC-adjuvant combination will serve as sentinel. The sentinel will be injected one day before the rest of the group. There will be a minimum of four weeks stagger between the first immunizations in phase Ia and phase Ib. Grant Funding: The PAMCPH project supporting the cGMP manufacture of the vaccine was funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) through Kreditanstalt für Wiederaufbau (KfW) and European Vaccine Initiative, the PlacMalVac (University of Copenhagen, Denmark) project supporting the cGMP manufacture, clinical trial and preparation for phase II was funded by the European Union Seventh Framework Programme, FP7-HEALTH-2012-INNOVATION under grant agreement n° 304815 (http://ec.europa.eu/research/fp7/index_en.cfm?pg=health), the preclinical development of the vaccine was supported by Danish Advanced Technology Foundation under grant number 005-2011-1 (http://innovationsfonden.dk/en). CEO Steen Klysner comments “This is a very exciting project and we now look forward to the outcome of the trial. I also note that this further validates the regulatory acceptance of the ExpreS2 platform under GMP for clinical use"

UCSF MAKES MAJOR EXPANSION OF ITS RAYSTATION PLATFORM

The Department of Radiation Oncology at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) is set to adopt RayStation® as its sole treatment planning system for linac-based treatment, replacing the multiple systems currently in use. RayStation will enable the department to achieve more effective workflows across all treatment modalities and incorporate automated planning. The purchase of additional licenses and hardware was completed in June. The purchased software includes functionality such as deformable registration, adaptive planning and fallback planning. The department will also be an early adopter of RayStation treatment planning for TomoTherapy and CyberKnife systems from Accuray (this functionality has not yet received FDA market clearance). In addition, multiple research projects are planned in cooperation with RaySearch Laboratories. Earlier this year, UCSF entered into a long-term collaboration with RaySearch regarding the RayCare® Oncology Information System, which is currently under development. The two systems will be fully integrated, enabling UCSF to take patient care to new levels and optimize its use of resources. Tim Solberg, Ph.D., Director of Medical Physics at UCSF, says: “UCSF is moving towards a consolidation of planning for multiple modalities, along with knowledge-based adaptive radiation therapy.  We believe that the most effective patient-centric care will be enabled by selecting from all of the modalities available to us, using past experience as a guide.  Up until now, this has been essentially impossible.  We very much look forward to the next couple of years as many exciting programs are put into place.” Johan Löf, CEO of RaySearch Laboratories, says: “We are excited to be pioneering the future of cancer care together with UCSF. The combination of RayStation and RayCare will provide a unique platform for delivering precision treatment and harnessing the potential of big data.” Marc Mlyn, President of RaySearch Americas, says: “We look forward to continuing this project with the team from UCSF. The next few years will see many positive changes, with new technologies being implemented at UCSF. We are proud to be a part of these developments.”
