Rebecca Wang, Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie, Bradley Cooper and Keira Knightley attend the serpentine summer party hosted by Michael Bloomberg.

Tuesday July 1st saw the art world’s most prestigious party, the Serpentine Summer Party, take place  by the Serpentine Galleries amid the oxygenated greenery of Hyde Park, ”the lungs of London”.The Serpentine Galleries are two contemporary art galleries in Kensington Garden, Hyde Park. Comprising the original Serpentine Gallery, and the new Serpentine Sackler Gallery designed by Zaha Hadid architects which opened in September 2013, they are linked by the bridge over Serpentine Lake from which the galleries get their names, they are among London’s best loved art venues. Up to 1.2 million visitors annually enjoy the parallel exhibitions at both galleries which comprise prestigious collections of modern and contemporary art, along with their impressive Exhibition, Architecture, Design, Education and Public Programmes.The Serpentine Summer Party is an annual fund-raiser for the galleries, helping to further their educational remit. It extends on the wide and strong support and patronage enjoyed by the galleries and has long held the reputation of being a sumptuous and glamorous evening, on a par with Ascot, Wimbledon and the Chelsea Flower Show as one of the quintessential outdoor events during London’s summer months.Co-hosts for this year’s party were of a particularly high-powered variety: joining Gallery Director Julia Peyton-Jones and Co-Director Hans Ulrich Obrist, Chairman and former Mayor of New York Michael R Bloomberg, Chairman and CEO of luxury brand Kering Francois-Henri Pinault, and international hotelier Andre Balazs.Among those attending were the Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie, Bradley Cooper, Keira Knightly and her husband James Righton, Bryan Ferry, Orlando Bloom, Lily Allen, Ben Goldsmith, Pharrell Williams, who performed a live music set, and gallery patrons and trustees including executive Hollywood film producer Rebecca Wang and international architect Zaha Hadid.Rebecca Wang is a dedicated supporter of all art forms. In addition to her roles as patron to the Tate Modern, National Gallery, and Serpentine, she is a member of both the Academy Circle for BAFTA (the British Academy of Film and Television Awards) and also Director of the Circle at the Victoria and Albert Museum. Zaha Hadid is a globally renowned architect who created the London Aquatics Centre for the 2012 Olympics. She has also been one of the previously chosen architects for the Serpentine Pavilion and has recently become the first woman to win the Design Museum’s Design of the Year award for the Heyder Aliyev culture centre in Baku.Tuesday evening also offered guests the opportunity to enjoy the 2014 Serpentine Summer Pavilion.Unique to the Serpentine Galleries, this pioneering annual commission offers internationally renowned architects an opportunity to create their first built structure in England. Previous architects who have participated in designing a pavilion for the summer months have included Frank Gehry, Oscar Niemeyer and Jean Nouvel.This year’s architect, Smiljan Radic from Chile, has created the 14th pavilion which will extend some 350 square metres across the lawn. He sees his design as being in the tradition of the popular follies built in parks or large gardens between the 16th and 19th centuries, and describes it as: “a fragile shell suspended on large quarry stones. This shell, white, translucent and made of fibreglass will house an interior organised around a patio. At night, thanks to the semi-transparency of the shell, the amber-tinted light will attract the attention of passers-by, like lamps attracting moths.”From the patio inside the pavilion, the natural setting will seem lower, with the sensation that the entire volume is floating.During its four month tenure in the park, the Pavilion will serve as a flexible multi-purpose social space with a café inside, and on Fridays will be the stage for the Galleries Park Nights – eight specific events incorporating art, poetry, music, film, literature and theory along with three new commissions by emerging artists.The evening was sponsored by luxury Italian brand Brioni and organised by Events Fusion.

The Elton John AIDS Foundation celebrates 21 Years with Woodside The End Of Summer Party

Sir Elton John and his partner David Furnish opened Woodside, their Windsor home on Thursday September 4th 2014 to host friends, supporters and A-list celebrities for the End of Summer Party.The exclusive party took place in the landscaped and specially decorated gardens of the expansive Queen Anne style mansion which lies adjacent to the grounds of Windsor Castle. Conceived as a new and unique fundraising event to mark the 21st birthday and achievements of the Elton John AIDS Foundation, the intimate gathering welcomed friends and supporters to enjoy superb food, entertainment and music against a stunning backdrop of flower bedecked statues and extraordinary lighting effects.Among the long-term supporters of the Elton John AIDS Foundation were world renowned actor Sir Ian Mackellen, and Hollywood executive producer Rebecca Wang, who expressed her support and sentiments in a “birthday” message for the foundation.“Congratulations on the shining example to us all of your courage, dedication and persistence for an AIDS-free world,” she said. “The phenomenal global achievement of your HIV treatment, prevention and education programmes is exemplary. I am proud to support the Elton John AIDS Foundation and its amazing work.”In association with Chopard, and supported by Grey Goose and Audi, the evening, requesting a dress code of summertime chic, opened with a champagne cocktail reception in the exquisite gardens, where a stellar array of British talent including Gary Barlow, Tom Odell, James Blunt, Chrissie Hynde, Alfie Boe and Elton John gave a series of fabulous “pop-up performances”.Following a warm welcome from Elton John, guests then proceeded to the dining area, passing tableaux of models wearing priceless Chopard jewellery who posed motionless against statues garlanded in roses and hydrangeas.A classic English meal paved the way for the live auction. This is a regular feature of the Foundation’s fundraising events, and, as always, offered an abundance of exclusive and singular lots, including a kiss from actress Elizabeth Hurley which fetched £50,000. A first for this event was guests and those at home being able to pledge funds or messages of support via texts which were beamed up on a screen for all those present.The evening culminated with the unveiling of an incredible nightclub which included a performance from Cirque du Soleil, and a live set from special guest DJ Fatboy Slim, where guests danced late into the night. The End of Summer Party joins other superlative events regularly organized by the Foundation to further its work toward “creating an AIDS-free future.” In the US, EJAF’s annual Academy Awards Viewing Party in Hollywood has developed its own reputation as one of the most prestigious events held during Oscars week, while in the UK the summer White Tie and Tiara Ball has long been favorably documented in the media.The foundation also holds “Enduring Vision” evenings in New York, which honour those who have shown outstanding dedication or made special contributions to advance the foundation’s cause.About the Elton John AIDS FoundationEstablished by the musician in 1992, the Elton John AIDS Foundation is one of the largest privately-funded institutions for AIDS in the world. In 20 years it has raised over £193 million ($300 million) to support more than 1,200 projects across four continents. Funding has helped leverage a further £228 million ($355 million) for programme partners, enabling them to reach millions of people affected by or at risk for HIV.

Rebecca Wang Anticipates Supporting the Serpentine Galleries' Summer Party 2015, Co-Hosted by Julia Peyton-Jones and Michael R. Bloomberg

Thursday, July 2nd will see the art world’s most prestigious party, the Serpentine Summer Party, take place by the Serpentine Galleries amid the oxygenated greenery of Hyde Park, ”the lungs of London”. The Serpentine Summer Party is an annual fundraiser for the galleries, helping to further their educational remit. It extends on the wide and strong support and patronage enjoyed by the galleries and has long held the reputation of being a sumptuous and glamorous evening, on a par with Ascot, Wimbledon and the Chelsea Flower Show as one of the quintessential outdoor events during London’s summer months.This year’s Serpentine Pavilion was designed by renowned Madrid-based architects José Selgas and Lucía Cano of the studio SelgasCano. SelgasCano’s design is innovative and modern while connecting with the landscape of the park and gardens. Using a double-layered shell of opaque, translucent fluorine-based plastic (ETFE) in a variety of colours, the structure is designed with multiple entrances, allowing visitors to experience the Pavilion from diverse perspectives, all leading to the café in the heart of the structure.Over the last 15 years, the Serpentine Pavilion has come to be a renowned international exhibition of architectural experimentation by presenting inspirational temporary structures by some of the world’s greatest architects. The blending of the natural beauty of London’s Kensington Gardens with a temporary structure that is both stunning and welcoming is part of the reason that the annual Pavilion exhibition has become a London landmark, and is one of the top-ten most visited architectural and design exhibitions in the world, according to the Serpentine Galleries website.Among those supporting last year’s Serpentine Galleries’ Summer Party were the Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie, Bradley Cooper, Keira Knightley and her husband James Righton, Bryan Ferry, Orlando Bloom, Lily Allen, Ben Goldsmith, Pharrell Williams, who performed a live music set, and gallery patrons and trustees including executive Hollywood film producer Rebecca Wang and international architect Zaha Hadid.Co-hosts for this year’s Summer Party on July 2nd are of a particularly high-powered variety: joining Gallery Director Julia Peyton-Jones and Co-Director Hans Ulrich Obrist, Chairman and former Mayor of New York Michael R Bloomberg, and Zaha Hadid, a globally renowned architect who created the London Aquatics Centre for the 2012 Olympics.

Elevate your home cinema experience with Focal’s new high-fidelity Sopra loudspeaker line-up

High End 2016, Munich: Following the success of its N°1 and N°2 loudspeakers, leading French audio brand Focal is expanding its Sopra range with a four new models, including the flagship N°3 floorstander and three home cinema speakers - the Sopra Center, Surround Be and the SW 1000 Be subwoofer. After captivating music lovers with its stunning Sopra stereo loudspeakers, home cinema enthusiasts can now experience true 3D audio immersion with Focal’s new eye-catching surround sound speaker line-up. Leading this new line-up is the three-way Sopra N°3 floostanding loudspeaker ‒ the biggest and most powerful in the Sopra range.  Perfectly combining spatial and harmonic richness, this loudspeaker, along with its smaller stablemate the Sopra N°2, join the centre loudspeaker, effect loudspeaker and subwoofer to form 5.1 or 7.1 home cinema surround sound set ups. At Focal, the ultimate goal has always been to achieve optimal acoustic reproduction. Sopra N°1 and N°2 loudspeakers are perfect examples of this. Now, with Sopra N°3, the French brand has pushed the limits of sound reproduction even further. In their quest for high audio performance, Focal’s engineers have completely redesigned the loudspeaker’s internal structure in order to increase the volume by 60% and accommodate the larger two 8.5-inch bass transducers. The result is the Sopra N°3 delivers dynamic, musicality and generous but controlled bass.  Designed by the Parisian design agency Pineau & Le Porcher, Sopra N°3 is, despite the new improvements, only just 35% larger than Sopra N°2, retaining the the range’s elegant, desirable and refined signature design; all the characteristics which have forged Sopra’s success. Sopra N°3 also integrates the three major acoustic innovations which characterise the line’s acoustic DNA: Rear compression tweeter Thanks to Focal’s patented “IHL” technology (Infinite Horn Loading), the Beryllium inverted dome tweeter no longer requires large volumes to prevent the rear sound waves from bouncing back. The tweeter has been given a horn to avoid any boomerang effect which creates distortion and colours the audio. Midrange suspension The surround connecting the mobile part of the cone to the fixed part can cause distortion at certain frequencies. When applied to Sopra’s 6” (16.5 cm) woofer, Focal’s patented TMD technology (Tuned Mass Damping) counterbalances the resonance of this oscillating system and gives the sound incomparable transparency. This has been made possible thanks to the power of numerical analysis carried out by Focal. “TMD” ensures that the sound stays pure and that very high definition is achieved. Stabilising the magnetic field The magnetic field surrounding the voice coil is unstable - no speaker driver is spared this issue. Variations in current from the amplifier in the voice coil, and the voice coil’s varying position blur the sound significantly, and this changes the quality of sound reproduction. The result of specially developed powerful simulation software, Focal’s new innovation “NIC” (Neutral Inductance Circuit) has finally made it possible to stabilise the magnetic field. This has paved the way for  unsurpassed high-definition sound. Thanks to these audio innovations, the “Made in France” Sopra N°3 is a striking premium loudspeaker capable of unrivalled acoustic performances in a compact enclosure. It also brings the listener one step closer to the ultimate performance of the “ultra high-end” loudspeakers in the company’s Utopia III range, which are still to this day, the most extraordinary loudspeakers ever designed by Focal. Sopra home cinema Home Cinema is a tradition that is central to Focal’s philosophy of delivering strong sound sensations and true 3D immersion. The launch of three new dedicated loudspeakers now allows home cinema fans the opportunity to experience the  impressive Sopra sound. ·  Sopra Center: A compact centre loudspeaker which uses all the design codes of the Sopra range in order to optimise integration into any interior.  ·  Surround Be: A new effect loudspeaker which can be used with Electra and Sopra systems, as well as certain Utopia III installations. Featuring an exclusive “Bi/Twin” structure with twin inputs, the loudspeaker can be used both in 5.1 (bipolar mode) or 7.1 (double mono mode) set-ups. ·  SW 1000 Be: An amplified bass-reflex subwoofer featuring a 600W BASH® amplifier and a 13″ (33 cm) woofer. This essential element of a home cinema set up it will offer a low-end performance on a whole new level.  Sopra has evolved into a loudspeaker line in its own right, not only meeting the expectations of the most demanding music and home cinema enthusiasts but also fans of stylish design. Focal Sopra N°3, Sopra Center, Sopra Surround Be and Sopra SW 1000 Be are all available from June 2016. Suggested retail price (including tax): Sopra N°3:  €18,000 (per pair) Sopra Center:  €2,499 per unit Surround Be:  €1,999 per unit SW 1000 Be:  €3,499 per unit To see the new Sopra loudspeaker range and the company’s other high-fidelity loudspeakers, please visit Focal at High End 2016: A4.1, Stand E119

Wilson Therapeutics announces that the ongoing Phase II study has been fully enrolled

Wilson Therapeutics AB (publ), announces that the company’s ongoing Phase II clinical trial evaluating the safety and efficacy of Decuprate® (bis-choline tetrathiomolybdate; WTX101) in Wilson Disease patients has been fully enrolled.WTX101-201 is a Phase II clinical trial evaluating the efficacy and safety of Decuprate® monotherapy dosed once daily in newly-diagnosed patients with Wilson Disease, aged 18 years and older, who previously have been treated with a standard of care agent for up to two years,. The study is being conducted at 11 sites in the U.S. and Europe, and will follow patients on Decuprate® for 24 weeks. Patients completing the 24 weeks can elect to stay on Decuprate® in an extension phase of the study.As of May 18, 28 patients have been enrolled in the study and six patients have reached the end of the 24-week treatment period. All six patients have elected into the extension phase. The patients recruited had various degrees of hepatic impairment at the time of enrollment and the majority of enrolled patients had neurological symptoms at study start."We are excited that the phase II study is now fully enrolled and that the trial is progressing according to plan,” says Carl Bjartmar, Chief Medical Officer of Wilson Therapeutics. "The preliminary data are encouraging as they seem to support the promise that Decuprate® could offer an efficacious and well tolerated treatment option with a lowered risk of an initial neurological worsening in patients with Wilson Disease.”Michael Schilsky (MD, FAASLD), Associate Professor at Yale Medical Center and Director, Center of Excellence for Wilson Disease continues: “We are very pleased with the progression of this study. Although treatments for Wilson Disease have been available since the 1950’s, there is a clear need for novel therapies that can address the significant unmet medical needs. Currently we are seeking treatment that yields a higher initial response rate and a more benign side effect profile. The study is ongoing so the data are still preliminary, but they are promising as they indicate that Decuprate® may address these needs. With the possibility of once daily dosing that could improve patient convenience and adherence, a successful outcome for the trial should lead to significant improvements for Wilson Disease patients.”“The full enrollment of the Phase II trial is a significant milestone in the development program,” says Jonas Hansson, Chief Executive Officer of Wilson Therapeutics. “We now look forward to the six-month data from all subjects. Shortly after we have received and analyzed the Phase II data we intend to go back to the regulatory authorities to discuss the Phase III program.”  About Decuprate® (bis-choline tetrathiomolybdate; WTX101)Decuprate® is a first-in class de-coppering agent with a novel and unique mechanism of action. With its strong and selective binding to copper, Decuprate® has the potential to expand the body’s own liver buffering capacity for copper, which is saturated in patients with Wilson Disease. The active ingredient of Decuprate®, tetrathiomolybdate, has been tested in several clinical studies in Wilson Disease patients and the data from these studies, as well as preliminary data from the Company’s ongoing Phase II study, suggest that Decuprate® can rapidly lower and control toxic free copper levels and improve clinical symptoms in these patients. The data also suggest that Decuprate® is well-tolerated with the potential for a reduced risk of neurological worsening after initiation of therapy compared to existing therapies. Decuprate® is expected to have a once-daily dosing regimen which may potentially translate into to improved compliance in Wilson Disease patients, leading to fewer treatment failures and ultimately improved outcomes as a result. Decuprate® has received orphan drug designation for the treatment of Wilson disease in the US and EU.About Wilson DiseaseWilson Disease is a rare genetic disease that causes serious copper poisoning. The genetic defect causes excessive copper accumulation, primarily in the liver and/or the central nervous system and the disease results in life-threatening damage to the liver and brain if left untreated. Wilson Disease affects approximately one in every 30,000 people worldwide, corresponding to a prevalence of approximately 10,000 patients in the US and 15,000 patients in the EU. The therapies currently being used in Wilson Disease were introduced in the 50’s and 60’s and since then there have been no new treatment options developed for patients with this disease.  About Wilson TherapeuticsWilson Therapeutics is a biopharmaceutical company, based in Stockholm, Sweden, that develops novel therapies for patients with rare diseases such as Wilson Disease. Wilson Therapeutics’ lead product, Decuprate®, is initially being developed as a novel treatment for Wilson Disease and is currently being evaluated in a Phase II clinical study in Wilson Disease patients. Wilson Therapeutics is listed in the Mid Cap segment on Nasdaq Stockholm with the stock ticker WTX.Visit for more information.For further information contact:Jonas Hansson, CEO, Wilson Therapeutics ABTelephone: +46 8 796 00 00Email: jonas.hansson@wilsontx.euWilson Therapeutics AB (publ)Org nr 556893-0357Västra Trädgårdsgatan 15SE-111 53 StockholmThe information in the press release is such that Wilson Therapeutics is required to disclose publicly in accordance with the Swedish Securities and Clearing Operations Act and/or the Swedish Financial Instruments Trading Act.

Moberg Pharma announces multiple patent approvals for MOB-015

“These patents are exceptionally important to Moberg since they secure IP rights for MOB-015 until at least 2032 in various markets worldwide where we plan to sell or license this product, once approved. They represent a strong addition to our portfolio which now includes 12 issued patents and 27 pending patent applications worldwide in four different patent families,” said Peter Wolpert, CEO of Moberg Pharma AB. The patents granted include composition of matter claims for topical formulations of antifungal allylamines (including terbinafine), as well as methods of treatment claims for treating onychomycosis using these novel formulations, enabling enhanced penetration of antifungal allylamines into and through the nail. Since February 2015, patents have been granted to Moberg in the U.S., Canada, Europe (EPO), Japan, Mexico, Singapore and South Africa. Notices of Allowances have been issued in Australia, Israel and Russia. Active applications are pending in several additional territories, including Brazil, China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, India and Korea. Moberg is planning to initiate a Phase 3 program for MOB-015 in the second half of 2016. In a recent Phase 2 study, MOB-015 demonstrated delivery of high microgram levels of terbinafine into the nail, as well as through the nail plate into the nail bed. Mycological cure of 54% and significant clear nail growth was observed in patients who completed the phase 2 study. The results are remarkable, particularly when taking into account that the majority of the patients treated had severely affected nails – on average approximately 60% of the nail plate was affected by the infection. Plasma levels of terbinafine with MOB-015 were substantially lower than with oral administration, reducing the risk of liver toxicities observed with oral terbinafine. About this informationMoberg Pharma discloses this information pursuant to the Swedish Securities Markets Act and/or the Financial Instruments Trading Act. The information was submitted for publication at 8:30 am (CET) on May 18th, 2016. About MOB-015 and Onychomycosis                 Approximately 10% of the general population suffer from onychomycosis and a majority of those afflicted go untreated. The prescription market is growing rapidly after the recent introduction of new topical treatments in North America and Japan. Moberg Pharma expects the U.S. market alone to exceed $2 billion by 2020 and estimates the peak sales potential for MOB-015 to be in the range of $250-$500 million. MOB-015 is an internally developed topical formulation of terbinafine building on Moberg Pharma’s experience from its leading OTC product Kerasal Nail®. Oral terbinafine is the gold standard for treating onychomycosis, but associated with safety issues including drug interactions and liver injury. For many years, developing a topical terbinafine treatment without the safety issues of oral terbinafine has been highly desirable, but unsuccessful due to insufficient delivery of the active substance through the nail.

YIT introduces Smartti, a flexible and affordable housing solution

Smartti homes are ready-made, care-free and easy to adapt to the resident’s wishes and circumstances. They are ideal as city homes and for students, small families or senior citizens who move to urban centres to gain better access to services. “Urbanisation, smaller households and expensive housing increase the need for well-designed, compact urban homes. These sites are located in growth centres, where the need for affordable owner-occupied apartments is the most dire”, says Antti Inkilä, Head of Housing Finland and CEE segment at YIT.The design of Smartti apartments is based on standard dimensioning. The apartments have no partition walls; the space is divided by cabinets and sliding doors, which also provide more storage space. The cabinets and sliding doors can be added or removed, according to the resident’s changing life circumstances. The surfaces are lined with replaceable furniture boards, which allows the resident to change the style and décor of the apartment without extensive renovation. Smartti homes come with a range of pre-designed interior styles that make them more personal and adaptable to different lifestyles and preferences. “Smartti is our answer to the demand for new apartments that can be bought with a small amount of capital. Smartti homes are compact, so the customer does not have to pay for extra space. The apartments are flexible and adaptable—customers can choose from a variety of extra features, such as kitchen fixtures, and only pay for the features they actually want to have. Interior design options and additional features and services are ordered at our digital YIT Plus service”, says Marko Oinas, Vice President at YIT. Smartti apartments are partly prefabricated, which makes them quick to construct. For example, bathrooms are made at the factory and installed on site. YIT has also developed other standard solutions that enhance profitability. YIT’s Smartti homes represent reasonably-priced housing production, which means that the prices of the apartments are competitive compared to other new apartments in the same area. The concept also includes a funding model, which was developed in cooperation with S-Bank. The customer pays only 15% of the apartment’s debt-free price when signing the contract and the remaining 15% when their new home is about to be completed. The funding solution includes a 70% cooperative mortgage with a five-year grace period.  “There is and will be demand for these kinds of apartments. The growing urbanisation trend increases the need for affordable and adaptable housing. Expensive purchase prices and problems with the availability of apartments are the greatest obstacles to employee mobility. Moving to cities that offer a better access to services will become more popular, both among the younger and older generations”, says Markku Hedman, Professor from the School of Architecture at Tampere University of Technology. YIT has ten simultaneous projects that cover a total of over 450 Smartti homes across Finland. The construction is scheduled to start in summer and autumn. The houses include a wide range of apartments in different sizes, from 21.5 m2studios to 61.5 m2three-room flats. Smartti introduction at Kansalaistori May 18–21 The Smartti concept will be presented to the public at Kansalaistori May 18–21. On Wednesday the doors are open from 12 a.m. to 6 p.m. and from Thursday to Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. On Wednesday and Thursday, YIT presents its model apartment for a working businessman. On Friday, interior designer Laura Seppänen furnishes Smartti for a young woman and on Saturday, blogger Susanna Vento showcases her interior design, which focuses on the needs of active senior citizens. The Smartti model will be presented in ten Finnish cities during the summer and autumn: Oulu, Lahti, Tampere, Riihimäki, Kaarina, Kuopio, Jyväskylä, Lappeenranta, Kirkkonummi and Vantaa.

Small businesses feeling under financial strain can cut the cost of their promotional budget with a great value Exhibition Bundle deal from PrintDesigns. With a range of banner packages available, businesses can harness the marketing power of great quality pop up displays, exhibition stands, printed graphics, literature stands and more, whilst saving up to £100.

Christer Fahlstedt is the new CEO of Paf

Christer Fahlstedt has extensive experience in the gaming industry, most recently as the CEO of the Swedish company Betting Promotion Sweden AB, which supplies betting products and gaming software. Before that he was CEO of Tain, which develops technology platforms for betting. Christer has a background in management consulting and has worked for 12 years in the online gaming industry. He has experience in senior roles both in B2B (Business to Business) and B2C (Business to Consumer) industries. Christer is enthusiastic about leading a publicly owned company: “Paf is a strong and amazing company in many ways. One strength is that Paf is successful both online and offline. When all the channels gradually merge, this will prove to be a great asset. I'm going to focus on the things that matter the most, and the user experience will be a top priority.” Paf's mission, to generate profit for good causes, was a strong reason why Christer chose this job as his next challenge. Paf donates its entire profit to help society, and in recent years this payment has amounted to around 20 million euros per year. At the end of January 2016 Paf dismissed its incumbent CEO, Anders Ingves. The reason was that the board felt that Paf needed a different type of leader to successfully expand internationally. Since then the Board of Directors, in cooperation with MPS Executive Search, have looked for a person with the right profile. “There have been good candidates in the process, but the entire board agrees Christer Fahlstedt is the person best suited for this assignment,” says Jarl Danielsson, Chairman of the Paf Board. Christer Fahlstedt is 40-years-old and lives in the Stockholm area with his wife and two children. He takes over as CEO of Paf on 1 June, 2016 and he will be based at the head office in Mariehamn. During the recruitment period Paf’s Finance Director Johan Rothberg served as the Acting CEO.

Teenager’s Mutant Marina ‘Myrtle’ puts new blood into classic cars

An 18-year-old car enthusiast has ensured that at least one of the 1.2 million Morris Marinas and Itals built can cut it on today’s streets and if needed, on track. Patxi Beasley’s ‘Mutant Marina’ retains the predictable lines that was familiar transport for many families in the 1970s but underneath the fading Brooklands Green paint and period dealer stickers resides an altogether different beast. Affectionately known as ‘Myrtle’, it’s now a hybrid of Ford and British Leyland. By planting a Ford Mondeo Zetec engine and Sierra gearbox in the 900kg car as well as redesigning the suspension set up, a criticism often levelled at the Marina by contemporary road testers, together with fitting modern Falken Sincera tyres, Beasley has created a lively alternative to the Corsas and Fiestas that most young drivers opt for. Much maligned in recent times, former Top Gear presenter Richard Hammond once described the Marina as ‘drab and dreary’ but the tweaks make this example, one of around 300 Marinas left on the road, a very different car to the ones produced during British Leyland’s most turbulent times. “Everyone seems to go for the same cars and I just wanted something different. This came up and with a few tweaks, it made a lot of sense!” says Patxi Beasley who is an apprentice at an independent Land Rover garage. “Slotting in the Ford engine has made it more reliable and now I can use it every day.” The upgrades have made the Mutant Marina Myrtle an unlikely drift car with Falken’s multiple drifting champion James Deane recently enjoying a slide in the 120bhp car at Rockingham. “It’s lacking a bit of power compared to my 750bhp Nissan S14 so you need to keep it nailed,” says Deane. “I started drifting in a Sierra and it takes me back to that. It’s old school but cool, though I’ve got no plans to ask Patxi to borrow it, well not just yet!” Specification Morris Marina 1800cc Super Ford Mondeo Zetec engine and ECU Ford Sierra Type 9 gearbox Lowered with switch to coil over rear suspension Welded differential Falken Sincera tyres Upgraded cooling system

NCC to upgrade “Million Programme” housing in Fittja

Sweden’s public utility housing stock is currently facing a major refurbishment challenge with thousands of apartments in need of upgrading throughout the country. NCC’s strategic framework agreement with Botkyrkabyggen includes refurbishing an area comprising 1,300 housing units in Fittja in the municipality of Botkyrka. A key issue in connection with the refurbishments is to weigh the measures against the impact on rent for those already living in the area. “NCC subscribes to a concept called Sustainable refurbishment ( This means that we use civic participation to create socially and environmentally sustainable residential environments while taking considerable consideration to the financial parameters for those living in the area,” says Henrik Landelius, Head of NCC Building Sweden. For Fittja, it is a question of redeveloping the entire residential area and not just refurbishing the buildings. “We intend to preserve and reshape what was good when the area was built. For instance, it is better for the environment and the wallet if we preserve good material and renovate kitchens. We will also make the spaces between the building more attractive and safer,” says Henrik Landelius. The cooperation with Botkyrkabyggen will take the form of what is known as strategic partnering (, a long-term cooperative format, where the participating companies carry out an assignment in close cooperation with the best of the project always in mind. “Being able to take experiences from one project and use them in the next one, with the same contractor and sometimes even the exact same employees, is invaluable. We will increase capacity and gain potential for increased efficiency,” says Ulf Nykvist, CEO of AB Botkyrkabyggen. For NCC, the agreement with Botkyrkabyggen is strategically important since NCC has a pronounced ambition to expand in refurbishment of the “Million Programme”. The first assignment for Botkyrkabyggen involves renovating two residential buildings, with an order value of approximately SEK 100 million, to be registered among orders during the fourth quarter in NCC Building.

During 2016, the Company intends to mine and process approximately 125,000 tonnes of ore. Mining will, when technically feasible, be focused to high-grade areas. The reduced ore tonnage will be processed by-weekly. The Pampalo underground mine will operate during weekdays. The operations produced 58.5 kg of gold during the current quarter, largely according to plan. Ore was still mainly sourced from low grade areas. Low recovery is mainly due to number of unplanned and planned shutdowns during the reporting period. Remedial actions include keeping critical process equipment running during the planned by-weekly processing shutdowns. Development drifting at higher grade areas is ongoing and assays from the drifting confirms so far the high grade intersections in the S2 ore area. The reduced production resulted, as anticipated, in an increase in unit costs as compared to Q4 2015. Production cost per tonne of milled ore increased from 420 SEK/t to 553 SEK/t or by 32 %. The main reasons for the increase were fixed costs of production and less ore from open pits. Due to the increased unit costs as well as production being still derived from the low grade areas, the Cash Cost increased from 1,202 USD/oz to 1,343 USD/oz or by 12 %. The first stope from the high grade area will be in production from mid-May 2016. In the latter part of 2016, production will increasingly be concentrated to high-grade areas. As a result of this, the Company estimates that in the future the Cash Cost will be reduced below the current and forecasted gold price. Exploration and other activities in the Karelian Gold Line During 2015 the underground exploration in the deeper areas of the Pampalo Mine showed very good results. The Company therefore decided to increase the focus of its exploration activities to these areas. The investment into an Exploration drift at +655-level has commenced. Regional exploration activities have been temporarily reduced. Recently, the company has prepared a new regional exploration plan for the Karelian Gold Line and will commence regional exploration during the Q2/2016. The exploration plan has been compiled together with the Geological Survey of Finland and is mainly based on the Karelian Gold Rush 2015 global exploration competition. The Company’s first satellite mine, the Rämepuro open pit, was exhausted during Q1 2016. Planning for rehabilitation works is ongoing and rehabilitation will commence during Q2/2016. Health, environment and safety The Company’s safety performance is on a good level. The overall strategy is a non-acceptance of accidents and adverse environmental incidents, a Zero Harm policy. Personnel As a result of the co-operation negotiations completed in December 2015 a number of officers and workers were temporarily laid off starting from January 2016. The average number of employees in the Group was as a consequence reduced to 40 persons. The average number for the full year 2015 was 72 persons. The Company has accordingly reduced the workforce of its contractors. Gold price development The gold price has increased by 16 % since the beginning of the year up to end of March, when the price was 1,230 USD/oz. The average price during the first quarter was 1,179 USD/oz, a 16 % increase as compared to the previous quarter, Q4/2015. Share issue Endomines AB (publ) has successfully completed the rights issue. The issue was oversubscribed by 63 % and 66.6 MSEK was raised, net after issue costs. After the share issue Endomines’ share capital amounts to 262.2 MSEK. The number of shares amounts to 1,048,627,500 with a quota value of 0.25 SEK per share. The issue was registered the 11thof February 2016. Subsequent events Reverse share splitA reverse share split as resolved by the AGM on April 18, 2016 was completed whereby one hundred (100) existing shares were consolidated into one (1) share. The number of shares decreased to 10,486,275 shares at a quota value of 25 SEK per share. In order to make the reverse share split possible, it was also resolved to make required changes in the Company´s articles of association. The first date of trading for the new share was April 28, 2016. Outlook for 2016, Selective Mining During 2016 the Company expects to produce between 300 and 350 kg gold. Production during 2016 will be based on the selective mining principle. During 2016, the Company intends to mine and process approximately 125,000 tonnes of high-grade ore. Mining will therefore be concentrated to previously known, as well as in 2015 discovered high-grade areas. The Company expects these changes to the mining and processing schedule, including the temporary lay-offs of personnel, to improve the profitability of the Pampalo Gold mine operations. Cash Cost is estimated to be reduced below the current and forecasted gold price level.

The Laureates of the Crafoord Prize 2016 in Astronomy, professor Roy Kerr, University of Canterbury, Christchurch, New Zealand and professor Roger Blandford, Stanford University, CA, USA, are awarded the prize “for fundamental work concerning rotating black holes and their astrophysical consequences”. Laureate in mathematics, professor Yakov Eliashberg, Stanford University, CA, USA, is awarded the prize “for the development of contact and symplectic topology and groundbreaking discoveries of rigidity and flexibility phenomena.” New Zealander Roy Kerr solved Einstein's equations for rotating black holes mathematically 48 years after it was formulated in the theory of General Relativity but before they even could be observed through telescopes. The discovery is described in the book “Cracking the Einstein Code” by Fulvio Melia. With an amazing personal story and a colorful life, he is an exciting laureate! Roger Blandford, originally from Great Britain, has been studying black holes and explaining how the black holes can emit light so strongly. He has created and refined models of how gas surrounding black holes flows towards it, it, is heated up and transforms some of its gravitational energy to radiation. At the same time, electrically charged particles are sent millions of kilometres into space in the form of powerful jets. The source of all of this power is the rotational energy of the massive black hole. Yakov Eliashberg,  was born in the USSR. After his doctorate in Leningrad (St. Petersburg) he  taught and worked in north-western former Soviet Union for many years. In 1988 he managed to get out of the Soviet Union and via Italy, he moved to the United States. During the Crafoord Days the Laureates will hold lectures in the Crafoord Prize hometown Lund, in the South of Swede, during Tuesday 24 May. The next day symposia will be held in Stockholm in each prize category, to be followed the next day by a prize ceremony where the Laureates will receive their prizes from the hand of HM King Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden. During the prize award ceremony the recipients of the Crafoord grant is presented. This years recipients are: Astronomy:Robert Wagner, Stockholms University, Yvonne Becherini, Linné University, Alexei Iantchenko, Malmö University  Mathematics:Thomas Kragh, Uppsala University, Boris Shapiro, Stockholm University, Anna Sakovich, Uppsala University Find a detailed programme at

Japan Airlines seeks approval to include Iberia into joint business with British Airways and Finnair on flights between Japan and Europe

The first step has been taken to enable Iberia to join British Airways, Finnair and Japan Airlines (JAL) in their successful joint business on flights between Europe and Japan. JAL has submitted its application to the Japanese Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism (MLIT) seeking antitrust immunity with Iberia to cooperate on flights between Europe and Japan. Iberia has already announced the launch of a new non-stop flight between Madrid and Tokyo Narita, which will start from October 18, 2016. The four airlines intend to cooperate commercially by sharing revenue and by coordinating flight schedules and fares in order to offer greater benefits to customers travelling between Europe and Japan.  The new joint business arrangement is subject to regulatory approvals.  Bringing Iberia into the agreement will not only strengthen the joint business, it will also enable the oneworld® alliance to compete more effectively around the world with other global alliances.  British Airways and JAL entered into a joint business arrangement in October 2012, with Finnair joining the partnership in April 2014. Since then, the three airlines have been providing their customers with better links between the EU and Japan, with more flight choices and enhanced frequent flyer benefits. Today, an Open Skies agreement between Spain and Japan has been officially signed, and traffic between the two countries is expected to increase. The addition of Iberia to the joint business will further enhance customer benefits, and allow the four airlines to cooperate in expanding their presence within and to and from this important market.  Alex Cruz, Chairman and CEO of British Airways, said: “We are delighted our sister airline Iberia will be joining our oneworld partners in the joint business. The addition of more European flights to Japan, along with the benefits of co-ordinated schedules and frequent flyer rewards is fantastic news for consumers. Iberia’s direct flights between Narita and Madrid will be a very popular addition.” Pekka Vauramo, CEO of Finnair, conveyed, “We welcome our oneworld partner Iberia to the joint business. Iberia's route between Narita and Madrid further expands the reach of the joint business and brings new opportunities for our customers.”  Luis Gallego, President and CEO of Iberia, said: “We are delighted to enter this joint business with our allies in IAG and oneworld. Half a million Japanese tourists visit Spain every year, and the number of Spaniards travelling to Japan is growing significantly. With our non-stop flights and this joint business they will have greater opportunities and more benefits when traveling between Japan and Europe.” “We are pleased to welcome Iberia into our joint business,” said Yoshiharu Ueki, President of Japan Airlines. “This will strengthen JAL’s presence in Spain, and provide our customers with more convenience to Madrid and beyond.”  Notes to editors · British Airways operates from London Heathrow to Tokyo’s Narita and Haneda airports. · Finnair flies from Helsinki to Tokyo Narita, Osaka, Nagoya, and Fukuoka. · Iberia will launch a new direct flight between Madrid and Tokyo Narita from 18 October, 2016.

UTA prepares Titan supercomputer to process the data from quadrillions of proton collisions generated in the new Large Hadron Collider experiments

University of Texas at Arlington physicists are preparing the Titan supercomputer at Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility in Tennessee to support the analysis of data generated from the quadrillions of proton collisions expected during this season’s Large Hadron Collider particle physics experiments. The LHC is the world’s most powerful particle accelerator, located at the European Organization for Nuclear Research or CERN near Geneva in Switzerland. Its collisions produce subatomic fireballs of energy, which morph into the fundamental building blocks of matter. The four particle detectors located on the LHC’s ring allow scientists to record and study the properties of these building blocks and to look for new fundamental particles and forces. “Some of the biggest challenges of these projects are the computing and data analysis,” said physics professor Kaushik De, who leads UTA’s High-Energy Physics group and supports the computing arm of these international experiments. “We need much more capacity now than in the past. “Three years ago we started a joint program to explore the possibility of using one of the most powerful supercomputers in the world, Titan, as part of our global network of computing sites, and it has proved to be a big success. We are now processing millions of hours of computer cycles per week on Titan.” Morteza Khaledi, dean of UTA’s College of Science, said that this research is one of the critical areas of worldwide significance aligned with UTA’s focus on data-driven discovery as the University implements its Strategic Plan 2020: Bold Solutions | Global Impact (  “Our key role in this international project also provides opportunities for students and faculty to participate in global projects at the very highest level,” Khaledi said. De, who joined the University in 1993, designed the workload management system known as PanDA, for Production and Distributed Analysis, to handle data analysis jobs for the LHC’s previous ATLAS experiments. During the LHC’s first run, from 2010 to 2013, PanDA made ATLAS data available for analysis by 3,000 scientists around the world using the LHC’s global grid of networked computing resources. The latest rendition, known as Big PanDA, schedules jobs opportunistically on Titan ( in a manner that does not conflict with Titan’s ability to schedule its traditional, very large, leadership-class computing jobs. “This integration of the workload management system on Titan — the first large-scale use of leadership class supercomputing facilities fully integrated with PanDA to assist in the analysis of experimental high-energy physics data — will have immediate benefits for ATLAS,” De said. UTA currently hosts the ATLAS SouthWest Tier 2 Center, one of more than 100 centers around the world where massive amounts of data from the particle collisions is fed and analyzed. De leads a team of 30 UTA researchers dedicated to the ATLAS project. His research has generated more than $30 million in research funding for UTA during the past two decades. During the first run of the LHC, scientists on the ATLAS and CMS experiments discovered the Higgs boson, the cornerstone of the Standard Model that helps explain the origins of mass. “So far the Standard Model seems to explain ordinary matter, but we know there has to be something beyond the Standard Model,” said Alexander Weiss, chair of the UTA Physics Department. “The understanding of this new physics can only be uncovered with new experiments such as those to be performed in next LHC run.” For example, the Standard Model contains no explanation of gravity, which is one of the four fundamental forces in the universe. It also does not explain astronomical observations of dark matter, a type of matter that interacts with our visible universe only through gravity, nor does it explain why matter prevailed over antimatter during the formation of the early universe. The small mass of the Higgs boson also suggests that matter is fundamentally unstable. The new LHC data will help scientists verify the Standard Model’s predictions and push beyond its boundaries. Many predicted and theoretical subatomic processes are so rare that scientists need billions of collisions to find just a small handful of events that are clean and scientifically interesting. Scientists also need an enormous amount of data to precisely measure well-known Standard Model processes. Any significant deviations from the Standard Model’s predictions could be the first step towards new physics.

Oslo, Norway – 24 May 2016 – Cxense ASA (OSE: CXENSE) today announced that funds managed by Aker ASA (“Aker”), Ferd AS (“Ferd”) and Charles Street International Holding Ltd (“Charles Street”) have agreed to acquire 1,250,000 new shares (the “New Shares”) in Cxense ASA (“Cxense” or the “Company) at a subscription price of NOK 120 per share, totalling NOK 150 million in a directed share issue.   “We are pleased to secure funding from three leading investors with strong track record. The new capital strengthens the Cxense balance sheet and enable us to faster pursue organic and acquired growth opportunities within the personalization software market”, said Ståle Bjørnstad, CEO of Cxense.   The issuance of shares is subject to the approval of an extraordinary general meeting (the “EGM”) in Cxense, which will be called for as soon as practicable. Such EGM is expected to be on or about 20 June 2016. The funds from the transaction will be used for working capital and general corporate purposes, as well as providing the Company with financial flexibility to pursue various strategic alternatives. In order to be able to complete the directed share issue, the Board will propose to the EGM that existing shareholders’ pre-emptive rights to subscribe the new shares are set aside.

Proact delivers Backup-as-a-Service to Munters

Sweden-based Munters is a global leader in air treatment solutions, with manufacturing and sales in 30 countries. Munters predominantly operates its IT infrastructure and hosting internally, using its own staff. Some applications, including functions with the highest availability and support requirements, are outsourced to hosting service providers or delivered through Cloud services. Munters began evaluating a new backup solution for its enterprise needs with the intention to purchase, deploy and operate this internally – in the same fashion as with the existing backup process. Proact was prepared to deliver backup software to match this requirement, but recommened that Munters consider Backup-as-a-Service, which delivers a complete data centre backup function as a managed service. ”We were pleased to learn that Backup-as-a-Service by Proact offered the safest solution for our needs, and that a managed service also offers greater flexibility, compared with a conventional backup solution,” says Per Brandt, Director Group IT, Munters. ”The workload on our IT operations staff is reduced by a provider that we can trust, while we have the option to extend the service to cover the greater part of our Group’s needs”. Munters is now using Backup-as-a-Service to support its business in Sweden and three subsidiaries in Europe, with the option to add more markets subsequently. Proact has recently relaunched its Backup-as-a-Service using an enhanced technology platform that offers extended support for various types of storage, multiple systems environments and product vendors. It can be implemented for conventional data centre operations as well as for Cloud services or hybrid environments with data stored in multiple locations: in-house, with hosting services, or in the Cloud. Backup-as-a-Service also eliminates the need for customers to invest in products or dedicated staff for managing backups and all costs are fixed and predictable. “Our updated Backup-as-a-Service both reflects and goes beyond the paradigm shift in infrastructure design we are experiencing at customer sites today”, says Lena Eskilsson, Managing Director at Proact Sweden. “We often encounter organisations like Munters, that are open towards the Cloud and its great potential, while the bulk of their mission-critical applications and data remain in-house”. Proact’s fully managed backup solutionalso provides Munters with an additional level of disaster preparedness, as copies of enterprise data are always maintained. Previously, Munters relied on an off-site vault for secure storage of tape backups, a service that is no longer needed.

This creates an entrepreneurial environment, developing strong leaders. There will be no quantum leaps, but I expect each business to achieve constant improvements”. “Despite the relatively short time I have been with Sandvik we have already announced consolidation of business areas as well as identified some non-strategic operations. That said, the review of the business portfolio is ongoing and continuous”, said Björn Rosengren”. The business area presidents presented the strategy and mid-term focus for their respective operations: Sandvik Machining Solutions, Jonas Gustavsson ·  Defend and strengthen the core offering: 11,000 new products to be launched in 2016, including the first intelligent tool ·  Drive and acquire growth both in core and adjacent areas ·  Focus on digital manufacturing and intelligent tools ·  Launch of a new product area, Powder and Blanks Technology, to capture the growth potential in the round tools segment ·  Operational excellence through supply chain optimization and cost efficiency in the whole organization Sandvik Mining and Rock Technology, Lars Engström ·  Implement decentralized business model with eight product areas based on the product offering. The decentralized business model enables an even clearer focus and faster response to our customers ·  Grow the aftermarket business by the global roll-out of customer service centers, new or improved customer offerings such as new e-solutions and increased productivity through data-driven predictive maintenance ·  Improve profitability through e.g. product launches and technologies supporting value based pricing, grow the aftermarket business, ongoing supply chain optimization program, focus on cost efficiency Sandvik Materials Technology, Petra Einarsson ·  Maintain the decentralized business model with nine separate business units within the three product areas  ·  Further strengthen the leading position for strategic growth products - and improve profitability in the core and standard product offering by operational excellence and a more lean business model  ·  Contingency plans are in place to manage different market scenarios ·  Long-term market fundamentals remain solid, and several new products and materials are being launched to meet the energy and climate challenges  Sandvik introduces new financial targets  The new targets are set until 2018, with 2015 outcome as a starting point. “Previous targets were based on a different macro environment than what we currently have. In my view, our new targets are appropriate and ambitious for Sandvik in times of change as well as in expectations of a continued muted macro environment, yet signaling my strong belief that the new decentralized business model will result in a more cost efficient organization with higher pace. Targets can be achieved both through support from top-line growth as well as internal performance improvement”, said Björn Rosengren.  ≥7% EBIT growth (Compound Annual Growth Rate) Target is based on adjusted operating profit in 2015 for new business area structure and excluding metal price effects in Sandvik Materials Technology. Improvement excludes potential nonrecurring items, impact from changed exchange rates for Sandvik Group as well as metal price effects in Sandvik Materials Technology.  ≥3%-points improvement of return on capital employed (ROCE) Target is based on adjusted operating profit and capital employed in 2015. Improvement excludes potential non-recurring items.    Net debt / Equity ratio of <0.8 The absolute ratio remains unchanged, however this implies a strengthening of the balance sheet as the net debt calculation will include net pension liabilities, which previously were excluded.  50% dividend payout ratio, of reported earnings per share The target remains unchanged. Previous targets were through cycle: 1) 8% growth, combined organic and acquired, 2) 25% ROCE, 3) net debt / equity ratio of <0.8 For further information, please contact Ann-Sofie Nordh, Vice President Investor Relations, tel: +46 8 456 1494 or Pär Altan, Vice President External Communications, tel. +46 70 616 20 24.

Boasting a seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) as high as 6.09 for comfort cooling applications and a Seasonal Energy Performance Ratio (SEPR) of up to 8.01 for process cooling, the system delivers immediate reductions on energy costs for end-users. Alan Walkinshaw, Sales Director – Process at Star Refrigeration, said, “We’re really excited about this new development and will be showcasing the Azanechiller 2.0’s new features. By opening up our doors to allow customers to see the new system and witness the chillers in operation firsthand, we aim to demonstrate the benefits of investing in technology that provides first-rate efficiency.” “The Azanechiller has been a very successful product for Star in the chiller market. However, we recognise the need for continuous update of our range of products to make them more efficient, compact, lighter and more competitive.” “In addition, the changes to F-Gas regulations and the implementation of the Ecodesign Directive has led us to invest in the development of improved ammonia chiller technology that is future proof, long-lasting and able to achieve refrigerant volumes of as little as 0.18kg/kW.” Representing a new era in chiller efficiency through the combination of variable speed reciprocating compressor technology, EC fans, close approach evaporator design and in-house PLC software, the new Azanechiller range delivers an efficiency that 20% higher than competing high efficiency chiller solutions and reliable cooling for 20+ years.   Each chiller package is manufactured, charged, commissioned and run tested at Star Refrigeration’s production facility in Glasgow, prior to despatch to customer’s site. The high and medium temperature Azanechiller 2.0 supply cooling capacities ranging from 200kW to 1200kW for secondary fluid and temperatures from -10°C to +10°C. The family of pre-engineered chillers is suitable for a wide variety of end user markets, including temperature controlled storage, food processing, beverage production, process cooling, HVAC, data centres, ice rinks, pharmaceutical and petrochemical industries. Walkinshaw will also be on-hand to answer any questions visitors may have and talk them through the projects. Discussing the benefits of the new components, he will explain how the company has evolved to exceed the needs of its customers with an innovative system that is set to revolutionise the low charge ammonia market.
