Stena Line enters partnership with Mercy Ships

Mercy Ships owns and operates the largest civilian hospital-ship in the world to deliver free, world-class health care services to the poorest of the poor together with capacity building and sustainable development to nations in the developing world. Since 1978 Mercy Ships has helped more than 2.5 million people. The ship’s crew is made up of more than 400 volunteers from up to 40 nations. Surgeons, nurses, technical, marine and many other professionals, an average of a 1000 volunteers yearly, pay their own expenses to aid those in need of safe surgical expertise and healthcare. “We have found a partner with the right qualifications and commitment who, like us, sees the advantages and flexibility in having the sea and ships as workplace. Care is part of our soul which means that our sustainability work includes more than just environmental initiatives. Our partnership with Mercy Ships now becomes an important part of that work and it gives us an exciting opportunity to involve our staff, customers and partners in making a difference.” says Niclas Mårtensson, CEO at Stena Line. “Mercy Ships is a unique organization and we very pleased to see the great support from Stena Line. They have taken our mission to their heart and it is great to see their willingness to partner with us to support the work we do”, stated Pascal Andréasson, Head of Marketing for Mercy Ships Sweden. At the end of January, Stena Line’s CEO Niclas Mårtensson visited the Africa Mercy, currently docked in Cotonou Benin, to see for himself the work done on-board. The Mercy Ship is a former Scandinavian rail ferry which was converted to a hospital ship with five operating theatres and spends ten months at a time in African port cities.  The impressions at the visit were many and Niclas Mårtensson says: “I see the great need to support Africa, where Mercy Ships with their volunteers, their commitment and knowledge, make an enormous difference. During the stay on-board the vessel in West-Africa, where I met patients and saw the operation of the organisation, I realized that this is a life-changing contribution. To see and experience this is a very important experience for me.” Stena Line’s vessels and social channels will be able to reach some 10 million people every year with information about Mercy Ships. During the spring of 2017 Stena Line will cooperate with Mercy Ships Sweden to bring awareness of the charity’s commendable cause on their vessels in all of Europe. Stena Line is also presently working to set up a programme for sponsoring staff/crew who would like to join as volunteers on Mercy Ships vessels.

“I use it”: LIQUI MOLY launches nationwide advertising campaign

February 2017 – “I use it” is the slogan of the advertising campaign being launched by oil and additive specialist LIQUI MOLY in the USA and Canada. The focus is on garage owners and their experience of LIQUI MOLY. “We show real people with something real to say”, says Sebastian Zelger, responsible for LIQUI MOLY’s North American trade.LIQUI MOLY is deliberately doing without celebrities as testimonials. “We want to provide a platform for these everyday heroes,” says Zelger. “They’re all people who work with our products on a day-to-day basis, which is why we’re calling the campaign ‘I use it’.”Users include Josh Collver of the European Service Center in Dallas, TX. He talks about a BMW Z4 M that was brought into the garage with problems: „This BMW came to us with low oil pressure faults and had obviously not been maintained. After a thorough engine flush with LIQUI MOLY products and fresh Smooth Running High Tech 5W-40, there were no more pressure faults or stumbling. We have full confidence that with these products, the customer has avoided the need for an engine replacement!” See for details of Josh Collver and the other testimonials.LIQUI MOLY developed the advertising concept itself without using an agency. This reflects the oil manufacturer’s philosophy of doing as much as possible in-house. The campaign will run for the whole of 2017 – digitally as well as in magazines, trade journals and consumer media, both in the USA and in Canada. LIQUI MOLY is also involving its customers in the campaign to further extend coverage. The company has significantly increased its advertising budget for this project. Sebastian Zelger: “This is our biggest advertising investment in North America to date.”

The first Sjöberg Prize, totalling 1 million US dollars, is awarded for discoveries that have led to new and effective cancer treatments

The Sjöberg Prize is an annual international prize in cancer research that is now being awarded for the first time. The prize is financed by the Sjöberg Foundation, and the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences is responsible for selecting the Laureates. The foundation was founded in 2016 by the late businessman Bengt Sjöberg, who donated 2 billion Swedish krona, one of the biggest donations in Swedish history. “We are delighted that we can encourage future cancer research by awarding this prize to two such outstanding researchers. Their discoveries have led to improved cancer treatment for thousands of people and we are proud to be awarding them the first Sjöberg Prize. Their high-quality research represents the Sjöberg Foundation’s idea and purpose of inspiring and aiding new efforts in the work to fight cancer,” says the donor’s brother, Ingemar Sjöberg, Chairman of the Sjöberg Foundation. The prize totals 1 million US dollars and is shared equally between the Laureates. It is divided into a personal award of 100,000 US dollars and a grant for future research of 900,000 US dollars. This year, the research being rewarded has opened up two entirely new ways of treating cancer. James Allison investigated how the white blood cells known as T cells are activated, and how a specific “brake” signal could be prevented. He realised that when this brake is removed, the immune system can use its full potential to attack tumour cells. These discoveries have resulted in the cancer pharmaceuticals that are called immune checkpoint inhibitors and which are of decisive significance in treating melanoma. They are also used in treating other forms of cancer and numerous clinical trials are underway. “I am honored and humbled to be a recipient of the first Sjöberg Prize, and feel that it acknowledges the effort of all those who worked to translate fundamental understanding of immunological processes into treatment strategies that are saving the lives of many cancer patients,” says James Allison. James P. Allison was born in 1948 in Alice, Texas, USA. He is professor and Vivian L. Smith Distinguished Chair in Immunology at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, Houston, Texas, USA. Tony Hunter studied how normal cells become tumour cells, demonstrating that a special process was necessary: tyrosine phosphorylation. His discovery led to the development of a new type of cancer pharmaceutical, tyrosine kinase inhibitors. These have revolutionised the treatment of chronic myeloid leukaemia (KML) and are also of great benefit in other forms of cancer.  “I am deeply honoured to have been recognized by the inaugural Sjöberg Prize. It is very gratifying that our work on a simple chicken tumour virus has ultimately led to new and effective therapies for human cancer, with 26 tyrosine kinase inhibitor drugs currently approved for clinical use,” says Tony Hunter. Tony Hunter was born in 1943 in Ashford, Kent in the United Kingdom. He is an American Cancer Society Professor and Renato Dulbecco Chair, and Deputy Director of the Salk Institute Cancer Center at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies, La Jolla, California, USA.   The award ceremony will be during the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences’ Annual Meeting on 31 March 2017 in the presence of His Majesty the King and Her Majesty the Queen of Sweden. The laureates will hold open lectures at Karolinska Institutet on 30 March.

The improvement is mainly due to synergies from the Grontmij integration. Synergies are estimated to be 20 per cent higher and realised in half the time relative to initial estimates, while extraordinary items are expected to be 11 per cent lower. Close to 90 per cent of the synergies and essentially all extraordinary items were realised by the end of the quarter. With the integration largely completed, this is the last report in which we will comment on the Grontmij integration in detail. Our focus forward is on Sweco’s further development. With a strong financial position and as the market-leading architecture and engineering consultancy in Europe, Sweco is well positioned for continued value-creating growth. Our strategy for the future is to repeat our history. Sweco’s operational model remains focused on customers, internal efficiency and having the best people in our business. We will continue to expand our Northern European footprint, through acquisitions and organic growth. Overall, the market for Sweco’s services is good. The Swedish market is strong. The markets in Norway, Denmark, Western Europe and Central Europe are generally good. The markets in Finland and the Netherlands remain challenging.

SIGNIFICANT EVENTS AFTER THE END OF THE QUARTERAdditional distribution secured for New Skin® Spray through Walmart and Walgreens. CEO COMMENTARY The acquisition of Dermoplast® in December finalized a transformative year for Moberg Pharma. Acquisitions totalled USD 88 million and significantly strengthened our brand portfolio. Furthermore, we increased the market share for our lead brand Kerasal Nail® to record-levels in the U.S. and progressed MOB-015 to gain regulatory approval to start Phase 3 as well as initiated patient enrolment. As for Q4, we delivered strong growth in sales and tripled EBITDA fueled by recent acquisitions. Recent acquisitions ensured continued profitable growthIn the fourth quarter, the company continued to deliver profitable growth with significant contribution from recently acquired brands, in particular New Skin®, increasing net sales by 67% to SEK 89 million with EBITDA tripling to SEK 12 million. In the U.S., Kerasal Nail grew market share in Q4 compared to last year, despite limited advertising during the low-season, and the market share for the full year grew to 27%, an increase with 4% compared to last year. We also secured important new distribution on New Skin® Spray in Walmart and Walgreens. These gains provide momentum as we head into 2017. Distributor sales, excluding divested brands, were up in volume in 2016 but down 6% in value due to volume discounts in key markets. The Asia-Pacific region represents a long-term growth opportunity and several of our markets have already performed very well. However, there are other markets in the region that need more time and will require refined strategies. Transformative acquisitions strengthened the brand portfolioWe completed successful acquisitions totaling USD 88 million in 2016 in line with our buy-and-build strategy for the commercial portfolio. Since the acquisitions were primarily debt-financed, the dilution to shareholders was limited. Dermoplast® is expected to become our second largest brand, contributing to sales and profitability from day one through our current sales channels in the U.S. Moreover, in addition to enabling further economies of scale, Dermoplast® offers an interesting direct sales channel to hospitals for us to develop. We were also pleased to complete the divestment of PediaCare®, releasing cash and resources for our core brands. The integration of New Skin and Fiber Choice® was finalized in Q4 and according to plan. Advancing our Phase 3 assetsWe are entering the year with two high potential pipeline assets in Phase 3. MOB-015 and BUPI both have the potential to become market leaders in their respective niches, taking Moberg Pharma to a whole new level. Following feedback from the FDA, we will include additional patients into the MOB-015 trial in North America. In total, our Phase 3 program is planned to include 750-800 patients. The increased sample size and a diligent screening process will reduce the risk of the Phase 3 program and, according to our revised timeline, we expect enrollment to be finalized during the second half of 2017. As for BUPI, we received patent approval in the EU and have been granted Scientific Advice meetings with two EU Health Authorities in March. The progress of both pipeline assets enables us to initiate discussions with potential commercialization partners. We expect the total investments in our Phase 3 assets to remain in line with previous estimates, approximately USD 20 million during 2016-2018. A significantly stronger companyOne year ago, we set high goals for 2016 and announced a plan of significant investments. I am proud to report that we delivered on these goals and that the results to date of these investments are meeting or exceeding our expectations. We start the New Year as a significantly stronger company than one year ago and I am excited about our prospects to create value. The transformative and immediately accretive acquisitions completed last year will more than double our U.S. sales, while the pipeline assets are progressing in line with our long-term growth strategy.

CEO'S MESSAGE With sales of SEK 13 billion and EBITA of SEK 1.5 billion, 2016 was once again a record year in the Group’s history. In a time of challenging market conditions in several segments, we have managed to continue generating profitable growth through acquisitions and development of existing companies, which shows the strength of Indutrade’s model. Fourth quarter After the third quarter’s weaker growth, both order intake and invoicing improved during the fourth quarter. Order intake increased by 11% and invoicing by 9%. In general, the trend in most markets has been stable. In Finland, much to our pleasure, we are seeing a clear improvement in the business situation following a long period of weak demand. In addition, most of the Group’s companies performed well during the quarter and delivered results that were well in line with expectations. During the quarter, lower order intake and outgoing deliveries as well as production disruptions of valves for power generation in the energy segment significantly affected comparisons with the preceding year in the Special Products business area. The investment in greater manufacturing capacity is resulting in greater opportunities for development of the valve programme in the long run. The total earnings impact compared with the fourth quarter a year ago was SEK -50 million, of which SEK -10 million pertains to costs for getting the new plant up and running. The challenging business situation, with soft demand and strong price pressure for companies in the marine segment, also continued during the fourth quarter. Lower invoicing together with restructuring costs had a significant negative earnings impact on the Flow Technology business area. AcquisitionsDuring the quarter the Scanmaskin Group, which makes surface finishing equipment, was acquired. A total of 11 acquisitions were made in 2016 with combined annual sales of SEK 1,130 million. Nine of the acquired companies have own products, which strengthens the long-term trend in the Group towards having a larger share of proprietary products. Our ambition since 2005 has been to increase the share of companies in measurement and sensor technology, so it is gratifying to note that four of the acquisitions carried out in 2016 are in this segment. In early 2017 three acquisitions have been carried out: RS Technics, which is active in measurement technology in the Netherlands; Sunflower Medical, which makes healthcare equipment in the UK; and Ellard, which manufactures control equipment for commercial doors in the UK. Outlook Since its stock market introduction in 2005 Indutrade has had a fantastic development. We have increased the share of companies with own products and own manufacturing. We have also expanded the business model outside of Sweden and the Nordic countries, and the number of companies during this time has grown from some 60 to more than 200 today. To enable this growth, the organisational structure has also developed, and today we have an organisation with six business areas that ensure that we can make full use of the experience and expertise that exists out in our companies. The cornerstones of Indutrade’s decentralised business model are firmly grounded, and I am convinced that Indutrade, through its ongoing evolution, has all the conditions needed for future profitable growth.

Opus Group appointed Lothar Geilen as next CEO

“I am very pleased that Lothar Geilen has accepted his assignment as the new CEO”, says Katarina Bonde, Chairman of the board of directors for Opus Group. “Lothar has been with the company for nine years and knows the business inside out.

Magnus Greko will step down from the position as CEO of Opus Group to take on a newly established position in the Opus Group management team as Vice President Strategic Business Development. With Opus Group’s newly adopted five-year growth plan focused on entering new markets and finding acquisition targets, an increased emphasis on strategic business development is essential. “I am very pleased with Opus Group’s performance during the eleven years I have been CEO of Opus Group as a listed company. We have created a great platform for further expansion and I believe this is a good time to hand over the controls to Lothar Geilen while I will focus on strategic business development.

For definitions of financial and alternative key performance indicators, please see page 21.    Message from the CEO Record results and delivering on external growth commitment I am proud to report our best year ever, in terms of both sales and financial results. Consolidated net sales for the fourth quarter rose by 6 percent, from SEK 415 m to SEK 440 m. EBIT before items affecting comparability for the fourth quarter increased by 8 percent compared with the corresponding period in 2015. For the full-year 2016, net sales increased by 5 percent, from SEK 1,720 m in 2015 to SEK 1,813 m in 2016. EBIT before items affecting comparability for the full-year increased by 23 percent and reached SEK 224 m (182), while the operating margin was 12.3 percent (10.6). Compared to our previously communicated expectations, the satisfying profit during the fourth quarter was helped by favorable weather conditions in all the Nordic countries. The good financial performance for the year was based on the combination of organic growth in most of our markets, and a favorable development of our cost position. In line with our strong operating result, our operating cash flow amounted to SEK 211 m (197). This has led to further significant strengthening of our financial position, and net debt decreased to SEK 25 m at the end of 2016. This will allow the Board to propose a dividend of SEK 3.75 per share, while leaving room for further acquisitions. In the beginning of 2017 we made two acquisitions, thus delivering on our commitment to developing our business through both internal and external growth. EPDM Systems is a Dutch prefabricator of EPDM based waterproofing solutions, with a business model similar to that of our Belgian operation. SPT-Painting is a Finnish provider of liquid waterproofing solutions for buildings, outdoor surfaces and ships. This latter acquisition represents an addition to our existing product and services portfolio, in a growing market segment. Nordic Waterproofing is one of Northern Europe’s leading producers and providers of products and related services for waterproofing, protecting and preserving buildings and infrastructure. Consolidated net sales in the fourth quarter of 2016 showed growth of 6 percent compared with the corresponding period in 2015, from SEK 415 m to SEK 440 m, with both of our operating segments contributing. While our Products & Solutions operating segment reported a sales increase of 2 percent, our Installation Services operating segment achieved an increase of 13 percent, based on improved demand in Finland. Denmark continued to see a very favorable demand trend. Our Swedish operations continued to be soft following weaker demand in both ROT- related DIY sales and sales of infrastructure project-related products. Sales in Norway in the fourth quarter increased 22 percent compared with corresponding period in 2015, primarily as a result of increased market share in direct sales to flat roofing customers. The Finnish market developed stably, mainly due to seasonal effects. The order inflow in the fourth quarter was slightly lower than the exceptionally strong corresponding quarter last year. Sales in the Product & Solutions operating segment increased despite weaker sales in Sweden. Earnings for the segment increased compared with the previous quarter, as well as compared with the corresponding quarter in 2015. The Installation Services operating segment also reported improved result as both the Finnish subsidiaries and the Danish franchise companies continued to perform well during the fourth quarter. Our total order book for Installation Services remains at an acceptable level compared with the corresponding period in 2015. The demand situation is in line with the seasonal variations. Earnings per share for the quarter were up, from SEK 0.31 to 1.13. Earnings per share for the full-year of 2016 were SEK 6.49 (3.40), an increase of 91 percent. I am pleased to welcome two new companies, EPDM Systems of the Netherlands and SPT-Painting of Finland, to Nordic Waterproofing. The acquisition of EPDM Systems, a leading Dutch prefabricator, highlights our strategy of strengthening our prefabrication footprint in those European countries where EPDM has significant market share. Prefabrication of EPDM-based waterproofing offers two important advantages versus on-site work: better efficiency through faster installation and better quality production in a controlled factory environment. We intend to continue developing both geographically and in terms of complementary prefabrication solutions for roofs and façades. Finnish company SPT-Painting, which operates in the growing floor coating market, has a strong market position. We expect to find synergies with it since SPT-Painting and our existing Installation Services serve overlapping customer groups. This acquisition is an important addition to our existing product categories. Good integration of the acquired companies is critical to success, and it is our view that the most determining factors for achieving such an integration are highly experienced and motivated management teams. I am pleased to report that bot EPDM Systems and SPT-Painting have such teams. Our growth strategy is based on organic growth and participating in trends towards systematic offerings and prefabrication. We continue to establish our brands in the Norwegian market using best practices developed in our other core markets. In addition to growing our EPDM platform in relevant European markets, we will continue to strengthen our market position by enhancing the product portfolio we offer our distribution channels. I take this opportunity to welcome Esa Mäki to Nordic Waterproofing, effective 1 April 2017. Esa has extensive experience in the markets we serve, and will be heading our Finnish business with the objective to realize the Group’s ambitions for further profitable expansion in both our Product & Solutions and Installation Services segments. I also want to thank Jaakko Tuominen for his considerable and longstanding efforts to the development of our Finnish business, and for having been an anchor through changing and challenging environments. I am very pleased that Jaakko has agreed to stay on as senior adviser in the Group.

ABB strengthens digital offering by acquiring leading pioneer in 3D inspection technology

The acquisition expands the group’s portfolio of ABB Ability™ solutions that connect customers to the industrial Internet of Things. ABB Ability builds on the intelligent cloud, using connected devices to generate actionable digital information for a broad range of customers. The two companies have agreed not to disclose the value of the transaction. NUB3D is a privately owned company headquartered in Barcelona. It supplies 3D white-light scanning sensor technologies, using digital scans to optimize inspection and quality assurance in manufacturing. The sensors can detect defects on a manufactured part with an extremely high level of accuracy. By combining NUB3D’s proven world-class competence in 3D vision and metrology with ABB’s brand, worldwide reach, and offering and customer support, ABB will be able to create automated turnkey inspection and quality-control systems for automotive original equipment manufacturers, aerospace companies and customers in other sectors such as metals and plastics. The technology represents the future of flexible manufacturing, enabling a high level of automation with advanced data analysis that can be used to optimize production processes. NUB3D will become part of the Robotics business of ABB’s Robotics and Motion division and the new global application center for 3D metrology in ABB. “With this acquisition we are moving a step closer to the factory of the future. As our customers’ automation processes become more advanced and production cycles shorten, the ability to efficiently automate quality inspections becomes a compelling competitive advantage,” said Sami Atiya, President of ABB’s Robotics and Motion division. “Combining robotics and software is pivotal in implementing digitalization and expanding ABB Ability as a key driver of our Next Level strategy.” Manufacturers increasingly have to improve quality and productivity while accommodating greater product variation and customization in smaller lots. NUB3D’s 3D sensor technology rapidly records and compares highly detailed geometric and surface data with digital CAD models, enabling the automation of inspection of manufactured parts and pieces, helping factories to reduce cycle times while raising quality and reducing the risk of quality control errors. Jorge Rodriguez, CEO of NUB3D, added, “This is the perfect time and ABB is the perfect partner for us to accelerate our expansion into the growing 3D metrology market. The ABB Ability platform perfectly complements our use of cutting-edge digital solutions, and ABB’s leading robotics portfolio and vast global footprint will ensure that we can make the most of our early-mover advantage in integrated robotic inspection solutions.” ABB and NUB3D have already successfully introduced two fully robotized state-of-the-art automatic quality inspection solutions for off- and in-line inspection using NUB3D’s 3D white-light sensors. They are marketed under the names FlexInspect and InspectPack.

CEO COMMENTS During the fourth Quarter 2016, Troax showed an increased strength in the development of orders received. This increased by 21 per cent (26 per cent excluding currency and acquisitions). The development in continental Europe and UK are especially positive. We have not seen any effect of Brexit in the UK so far. In the Nordic areas the finish of the year was strong. New Markets have seen an acceptable increase, albeit these markets still have relatively low absolute figures. At the year end, the order book remains on a good and healthy level. One of the market leading producers on the American market, Folding Guard was acquired end of 2016. Sales invoiced increased in the quarter by 14 per cent, compared with the same period last year (excluding acquisition and currency the increase is 19 per cent). The progress was positive in all markets. Totally, the Group has increased to an order intake level of approximately 119 MEUR on a rolling 12 months’ basis, excluding Folding Guard in USA which was acquired in late December 2016. Folding Guard’s turnover in 2016 was approximately 18 MEURO. The result has improved during the quarter, mainly because of good sales volumes, but also due to the fact that the main extra costs for the new paint line in its inauguration phase are now over. The market investments are continuing according to plan. The operating result therefore becomes 9,4 (6,6) MEUR, which corresponds to a profit margin of 29,5 per cent to be compared with 23,7 per cent last year. Redemption of bond has influenced the operating result positively in the period 0,6 (0,0) MEUR. The Net result has also developed in a positive way, and amounts to 6,4 MEUR for the quarter (4,3 MEUR). The result per share, after the third quarter is 0,82 EURO to be compared with 0,69 EURO last year. The Working Capital is on a similar level as last year. Work in Progress, has been reduced and is now at a normal level for the Group. We have continued with good cash generation during the quarter and the net debt is now 63,9 MEUR. Thomas Widstrand, President and CEO PHONE CONFERENCE Invitation to presentation of the fourth quarter result:Thomas Widstrand, CEO presents the result on a phone conference on the 14th of February 2017 at 16:30 CET.  The conference will be held in English.For more information please refer to This information is information that Troax Group AB (publ) is obliged to make public pursuant to the EU Market Abuse Regulation.

Nuevolution Technology Progress: Nuevolution scales its compound collection to 40 trillion using its Chemetics™ drug discovery platform

Stockholm, 14 February 2017. Nuevolution AB (publ) (NUE.ST) today announced the successful production and validation of its new ultra-high complexity library of 40 trillion (40,000,000,000,000) compounds. This library is roughly 10,000 fold larger than Nuevolution’s previous libraries, and likely constitutes the largest synthetic compound collection in the world. The 40 trillion (40T) library was assembled from the use of tens of thousands of individual fragments (building blocks) introducing an unprecedented chemical diversity. This library was produced with a key focus on hit identification for the many important and very tough-to-drug therapeutic targets not easily addressed by other approaches. The first 40T screening against a small subset of such difficult targets have identified both novel compound scaffolds and compounds with picomolar potency (extreme and very unusual potency) for their target, directly from the library without any further optimization performed. “The result demonstrates the great power of our Chemetics™ drug discovery platform. It supports both the growing Nuevolution pipeline and discovery programs for current and future collaboration partners”, said Dr. Thomas Franch, CSO, and continued: “The 40T library has been in the making for about two years, and we are very pleased by now being able to bring this extraordinary library into service in our search for novel and innovative medicines”.

Saab Offers World Class Sensor Package for Indian Tejas LCA

Saab, in partnership with Indian industry, offers a solution that will bring the required Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) Fighter radar and Electronic warfare capability to India and the Indian Air Force. Thanks to our extensive technology development Saab can offer the latest technology, on time for the LCA Mk 1A needs, at low risk. The AESA fighter radar is developed by Saab with antenna technology based on the latest technologies using Gallium Nitride (GaN) and Silicone Carbide (SiC) substrates in combination with the latest generation of exciter/receiver and processor technology, giving optimum installed performance in a dense signal environment. The radar has a complete mode suite which includes air-to-air, air-to-ground and air-to-sea capabilities. A built-in memory provides a tool to record a large amount of data from performed flights. Integration in the LCA Mk1A fighter aircraft is enabled by the limited space, power and cooling required. The EW suite consists of sensors and transmitters developed by Saab and is a highly capable and extremely compact solution that provides essential situational awareness and self-protection. The heart of the suite is an electronic warfare receiver which is connected to a front end receiver and fin tip antennas inside the aircraft. Included is also an external AESA jammer pod. The radar warning system is based on ultra-wideband digital receivers and has very high probability of intercept, very good sensitivity and very high selectivity for handling the complex signal environment of today. The AESA jammer pod is small in size, low on weight and drag. Self-protection is based on Wideband Digital RF Memory (DRFM) that provides advanced jamming techniques and arbitrary combination of jamming waveforms. Transmission is performed by using GaN-based AESA:s. The EW suite also includes ground support systems and recording capability for advanced mission planning and post flight analysis. Saab’s solutions are based on the latest state-of-the-art technologies and COTS (commercial-off-the-shelf) available. The AESA fighter radar and electronic warfare units have no ITAR-restricted (Internationally Traffic in Arms Regulations) components, due to the high degree of Saab in-house developed and manufactured building blocks. Using contemporary technology provides the adaptability and growth potential needed to stay ahead. Technologies are re-used between variants and platforms in order to minimize Life Cycle Cost (LCC). “In our partnership, the transfer of technology will secure an indigenous Indian capability for series production, maintenance, repair and overhaul capability. Testing and development of the fighter sensor package will have synergies with the systems developed for Gripen,” says Anders Carp, head of Saab business area Surveillance. Saab has a proven background in tailoring systems to customer needs.

Looking back at what we have accomplished over the last twelve months is rather impressive. We have completed and integrated seven strategic acquisitions, entered three new markets, and concurrently broadened our offering, reached over 204,000 NDCs and increased the number of employees from 70 to 190. Moreover, we achieved two important milestones with the successful listing of Catena Media´s shares on Nasdaq First North Premiere and the issue of a three-year secured bond loan. Another successful quarter The fourth quarter was the company´s strongest ever with a top line growth of 108 percent when compared to the same quarter last year, coupled with a solid operating margin of 50 percent. As a result of the heavy investment in Paid media, as well as our investments in technology and the recruitment of new employees, our margin declined slightly. This is a natural consequence of our current strategy, which is focused on growth and increase in market share. Given the pace at which Catena Media is growing, being at the forefront of technology is an absolute necessity. We have therefore decided to invest further in technical development by reinforcing our Technical department with two outsourced teams in Budapest. While making two strategic acquisitions in the UK, we further advanced our market presence in the biggest iGaming market in Europe. Through the acquisition of SBAT, Catena will strengthen its focus on sports, as well as its social media know-how, and through we have the opportunity to expand our offering in Paid media and Search. In terms of new markets, we entered the US in January by acquiring regulated affiliate assets targeting the Poker and Casino markets in New Jersey and Nevada. Following the acquisition, Catena Media adds three new verticals to its business. In addition to Poker, we also acquired websites targeting eSports and Daily Fantasy Sports. We are very excited about this opportunity, which makes Catena Media the largest regulated casino affiliate in the US, and puts us in pole position to take advantage of further re-regulation in what has the potential to become the world’s largest iGaming market.  Following this acquisition, about 50 percent of Catena Media´s revenue will derive from regulated markets.  We are also very pleased to note continued growth in our acquired assets and in the Sportsbook segment that we entered earlier this year. In addition, during December, we reached a record of 24,000 NDCs in one single month on our different sites. Looking forward I am highly positive and confident as we enter 2017. Our move to the Nasdaq Mid Cap list is progressing as planned and we aim to finalize the transition within the first half of 2017. As previously, our focus remains on delivering in line with our financial targets and on continuing to grow in the same successful way both through organic growth and through acquisitions across existing and new geographic markets. To conclude, I am really proud of what we have achieved in 2016. Catena Media is an extraordinary company with extraordinary people and together we will continue this exciting journey towards becoming the world´s number one provider of high-value iGaming leads.

Stockmann Group's Financial Statement Bulletin 2016

STOCKMANN plc, Financial Statement Release 15.2.2017 at 8:00 EET October-December 2016:- Consolidated revenue was EUR 388.4 million (EUR 420.0 million).- Revenue in continuing product areas and businesses was down by 6.5 per cent.- Gross margin was up, to 53.5 per cent (51.0 per cent).- Adjusted operating profit was EUR 36.5 million (EUR 18.5 million).- Reported operating profit was EUR 33.8 million (EUR 4.3 million). January-December 2016:- Consolidated revenue was EUR 1 303.2 million (EUR 1 434.8 million).- Revenue in continuing product areas and businesses was down by 4.1 per cent.- Gross margin was up, to 53.4 per cent (50.6 per cent).- Adjusted operating profit was EUR 20.2 million (EUR -28.5 million).- Reported operating profit was EUR 17.6 million (EUR -52.5 million).- Reported earnings per share were EUR -0.33 (EUR -1.24). - Hobby Hall, which was divested on 31 December 2016, is included in the 2016 income statement in the Stockmann Retail segment.- Department store operations in Russia have been classified as discontinued operations. The comments in the report refer only to continuing operations. The Board of Directors will propose no dividend to be paid on the 2016 result. Outlook for 2017:Stockmann expects the Group’s revenue for 2017 to decline due to changes in the store network and product mix. Adjusted operating profit is expected to improve, compared with 2016. Due to normal seasonal variation, the first-quarter operating result will be negative. CEO Lauri VeijalainenI’m encouraged by the financial development achieved in 2016. The Group’s adjusted operating result improved by nearly EUR 50 million, producing a positive operating result after two years of heavy losses. Our improved profitability has reinforced our confidence that we are on the right path. The department stores’ offering is now focused on fashion, beauty, food and home products, and complemented by cafés, products and services from numerous attractive partners. Lindex continued to be the Group’s most profitable division in 2016. Its operating profit was up by EUR 10 million to EUR 55 million and it achieved its best ever sales for the first half of the year. Real Estate continued its positive development and increased its operating profit and also the fair value of Stockmann’s properties improved. Also, Stockmann Retail’s operating result improved significantly, by around EUR 20 million, but was still negative. The department stores improved their results, particularly in the last quarter of the year which ended up with a solid operating profit of EUR 14 million. Operating costs were down significantly due to the efficiency programme, and the improved gross margin. There is still a lot of work to be done to make the department store business profitable by the end of 2018, but I am confident that this target can be reached as planned. Stockmann will open a totally new department store in Tapiola in March. We will focus on offering inspirational customer experiences, appealing high-quality selections with dozens of new brands and excellent customer service. The speed will be increased further to achieve the turnaround and to redeem our promises to our customers, as well as to provide more reasons to visit our stores.

Adjustments affecting tax and financial costs were EUR 9.7 million (EUR 21.8 million). Stockmann has revised the terminology used in its reporting due to the new guidelines of the European Securities and Market Authority (ESMA). Alternative Performance Measures are used to better reflect the operational business performance and to facilitate comparisons between financial periods. Starting from the second quarter of 2016, the previously used term “excluding non-recurring items” has been replaced with the term “adjusted”, and, as a consequence, “operating profit (EBIT) excluding non-recurring items” has been replaced with the term “adjusted operating profit (EBIT)”. Correspondingly, “adjusted EBITDA” is calculated from adjusted operating profit excluding depreciation. Stockmann uses the term “continuing product areas and businesses” which refers to operations excluding Russian retail operations (Stockmann and Lindex), Seppälä, Hobby Hall, Stockmann Beauty, the airport store and the product areas the company has withdrawn from in department stores (electronics, books, sports equipment, toys and pet supplies). Gross profit and gross margin are also used as alternative performance measures. Gross profit is calculated by deducting the costs of goods sold from the revenue, and gross margin is calculated by dividing gross profit by the revenue as a percentage. StrategyThe Stockmann Group is focusing on developing retail operations and real estate business in its department store properties in Finland and the Baltic countries, as well as the development and expansion of the Lindex fashion chain. The Stockmann Retail and Real Estate divisions cooperate closely, while Lindex is being developed as an independent part of the Group. In line with its strategy, Stockmann withdrew from several unprofitable business operations and merchandise areas during 2016 and reduced its department store network and retail space. The divestment of the Russian department store business was completed in February and Hobby Hall at year-end. Stockmann is considering divesting the Nevsky Centre shopping centre in St Petersburg. Investigation of this possibility is in progress. Stockmann is updating its selection that is focused on fashion, beauty, food and home products, improving services and investing in the renewal of its department store premises, in order to offer an improved customer experience. A new department store in rental premises in Tapiola, Finland, will be opened in March 2017. The new Stockmann online store was launched in the fourth quarter of 2016. The online store operates on a new platform and will gradually gain several new features, such as online availability of the goods in the brick-and-mortar stores and new delivery points. A new Crazy Days online store was launched in October 2016 when the campaign was taking place. Transition to more digital marketing based on customer data and development of digital services to support omnichannel shopping continued during the year. Risk factorsStockmann is exposed to risks that arise from the operating environment, risks related to the company’s own operations and financial risks. The general economic situation is affecting consumers’ purchasing behaviour and purchasing power in all of the Group’s market areas. Consumers’ purchasing behaviour is also influenced by digitalisation, increasing competition and changing purchasing trends. Rapid and unexpected movements in markets may influence the behaviour of both the financial markets and consumers. Uncertainties related to purchasing power and behaviour are considered to be the principal risks that could affect Stockmann during 2017. The operating environment may also affect the operations of Stockmann’s tenants and consequently may have a negative impact on rental income and the occupancy rate of Stockmann’s properties. These, particularly if related to the biggest tenants of the properties, may have an effect on the fair value of the real estate Fashion accounts for over two thirds of the Group’s revenue. An inherent feature of the fashion trade is the short lifecycle of products and their dependence on trends, the seasonality of sales and the susceptibility to abnormal changes in weather conditions. Responsible management of the supply chain is important for the Group’s brands in order to retain customer confidence in Stockmann. The Group addresses these factors as part of its day-to-day management of operations. The Group’s operations are based on flexible logistics and efficient flows of goods and information. Delays and disturbances in logistic and information systems as well as uncertainties related to the logistics partners can have an adverse effect on operations. Every effort is made to manage these operational risks by developing appropriate back-up systems and alternative ways of operating, and by seeking to minimise disturbances to information systems. Operational risks are also met by taking out insurance cover. The Group’s revenue, earnings and balance sheet are affected by changes in exchange rates between the Group’s reporting currency, which is the euro, and the Swedish krona, the Norwegian krone, the US dollar, the Russian rouble and certain other currencies. Currency fluctuations may have an effect on the Group’s business operations. Financial risks, mainly risks arising from interest rate fluctuations due to the Group’s high level of debt may have an effect on the financial costs and the financial position. Interest rate fluctuations may also impact the yield related to the properties owned by the Group, and thus to the fair value of these assets. Financial risks are managed in accordance with the risk policy confirmed by the Board of Directors. Outlook for 2017In the Stockmann Group’s largest operating country, Finland, the economy has slowly begun to recover. GDP and retail market are expected to grow slightly in 2017. Consumers’ purchasing power is, however, not expected to increase and purchasing behaviour is changing due to digitalisation and increasing competition. The Swedish economy remained stable in 2016 and the GDP growth estimate for 2017 remains on a higher level than in Finland. The steady growth in the fashion market stagnated in 2016, and the growth rate is expected to remain at the same level in 2017. In the Baltic countries, GDP growth is estimated to continue. The outlook for these countries is expected to be better than that for the Stockmann Group’s other market areas. The Russian economy is expected to recover gradually, but purchasing power of Russian consumers remains low. Stockmann will continue its turnaround by improving the Group’s long-term competitiveness and profitability. The efficiency programmes, launched in 2015 and continued in 2016, will be fully visible in the 2017 operating costs. Improvements in the operating result in 2017 are estimated to come mainly from the Stockmann Retail division, which is still loss-making, while Lindex and Real Estate are expected to continue their stable performance. Capital expenditure for 2017 is estimated to be approximately EUR 45-50 million, which is less than the estimated depreciation for the year. Stockmann expects the Group’s revenue for 2017 to decline due to changes in the store network and product mix. Adjusted operating profit is expected to improve, compared with 2016. Due to normal seasonal variation, the first-quarter operating result will be negative.

Nel ASA: Fourth quarter 2016 results

(Oslo, 15 February 2017) Nel ASA (Nel) reported revenues in the fourth quarter 2016 of NOK 50.6 million, compared to NOK 35.6 million in the same quarter in 2015. The company is on-track and well-positioned for the Californian market, both related to fueling stations and renewable hydrogen production. ”The fourth quarter was a strong period for Nel, with record high revenue growth, cash preservation and high business development activity in different key markets. We see increased interest in the field of hydrogen from multiple markets far outside our home base, and believe we are well positioned to take advantage of these opportunities”, says Jon Andrè Løkke, Chief Executive Officer of Nel. In the fourth quarter of 2016, Nel reported revenues of NOK 50.6 million, up from NOK 35.5 million in the same quarter in 2015, representing the strongest quarterly performance in 2016. The operating earnings were impacted by the full 2016 non-cash costs related to the company ́s stock option- and share incentive program of NOK 10.2 million, resulting in a negative EBIT of NOK 16.0 million (-5.4). The cash balanced increased NOK 1.8 million to NOK 225.5 million during the quarter.  “The underlying project-development pipeline is strong, and the company continues to experience a high activity level for its prospects and ongoing tender processes. We are well-positioned for the Californian market, both related to fueling stations and renewable hydrogen production”, says Løkke. The Energy Commission in California is expected to announce the Grant Funding Opportunity (GFO) in the first quarter of 2017. The full GFO award is likely to cover around 20 stations, to be installed and developed in 2017 and 2018. “Nel has both a direct and indirect market penetration strategy for California, were our US subsidiary Everfuel has applied directly for funding. In addition, we are offering our H2Station technology to other GFO applicants which have included our equipment into their proposals. California also represents an opportunity within hydrogen production, as 33 percent of the hydrogen must be renewable, compared with today’s situation with no TRUE renewable hydrogen available in this market”, says Løkke. Within renewable hydrogen production, Nel and SunPower Corp. have entered into a framework agreement to develop solar based renewable hydrogen facilities in California, US. The parties are exploring an initial facility in Davis, California, but are also looking at other locations. The target is to market low cost renewable hydrogen from the site at a price of around 4 USD/kg.

SSAB Results for 2016: Lower cost level and stronger financial position lay foundation for profitable growth

Comments by the CEO SSAB posted a full year operating profit of SEK 1,213 million, up by SEK 1,456 million compared with full year 2015. Improved earnings were driven primarily by the cost reduction program, including synergies from the acquisition of Rautaruukki. Cost reductions were achieved faster than planned and amount to a full annual run rate of SEK 3 billion. Higher volumes and better capacity utilization also contributed to improved earnings for the full year. Our strategic growth initiatives in SSAB Special Steels and Automotive resulted in increased volumes and we continued launching new products at a high pace. Operating profit for the fourth quarter of 2016 was SEK 107 million, down by SEK 600 million compared with the third quarter of 2016. This was largely attributable to SSAB Special Steels, where there was a scheduled maintenance outage in Oxelösund and a production breakdown occurring when restarting the rolling mill in Oxelösund after the outage. The production breakdown was related to a faulty design in the newly installed control system resulting in damaged transformers. The rolling mill is up and running since the beginning of February and discussions have been initiated with the insurance company regarding potential compensation. Lower prices and lower margins in North America also impacted negatively on the fourth quarter. Global demand for high-strength steel remained stable during the fourth quarter. SSAB Special Steels’ shipments for the full year were up by 8% at 1 million tonnes. SSAB Special Steels is growing structurally in the market as a result of customers’ needs for increasingly lighter and stronger products. For SSAB Europe, underlying demand was stable. Market prices rose during the quarter and realized prices for SSAB Europe improved. Import restrictions on Chinese steel have resulted in lower imports and better pricing in Europe. In North America the fourth quarter was adversely affected by lower realized prices. Market prices, however, rose during the quarter, which is expected to impact positively on SSAB’s realized prices and margins from the first quarter of 2017 onwards. SSAB aims to reduce net debt by SEK 10 billion between the start of the first quarter of 2016 and the end of 2017. The rights issue during the second quarter of 2016 raised SEK 4.9 billion net and the net cash flow during the second, third and fourth quarters amounted to approximately SEK 2.2 billion. The remaining amount will be achieved through cash flow generated from operations, a structural reduction in working capital and through possible divestment of non-core assets. The integration between SSAB and Rautaruukki has been completed and the cost reduction program has ended, which resulted in savings of over SEK 3.0 billion and a reduction of over 2,500 employees. Together with our improved financial position, we have created a platform to continue to execute our “Taking the Lead” strategy with the goal to reach industry-leading profitability. We will do this by continuing to drive efficiency through continuous improvement in all our operations, by driving growth within chosen initiatives and by increased focus on the aftermarket. Against this background, I am convinced that we will continue to strengthen our position during 2017.

Outlook   The demand outlook for passenger and cargo traffic in Finnair’s main markets continues to involve uncertainty. Finnair estimates that, in 2017, due to the fleet renewal and introduction of new aircraft, its capacity will grow 8–10 per cent, weighted strongly towards the second half of 2017. Revenue is expected to grow more slowly than our capacity, reflecting increasing capacity in the relevant markets. In keeping with its disclosure policy, Finnair will issue guidance for its expected full-year operational result in connection with the half-year report in July. CEO Pekka Vauramo: As a whole, 2016 was a year of growth for Finnair. We successfully launched several new destinations, including Fukuoka and Guangzhou, and added frequencies to key routes. We took delivery of four Airbus A350 widebody aircraft and carried half a million more passengers than a year earlier. Considerable progress was made for example in the digitalisation of our technical processes. Due to the growth, we have also recruited and trained considerable numbers of new personnel, mainly pilots and cabin crew, as previously anticipated. We are building a culture of growth. In the last quarter, our comparable result was approximately 2 million euros positive, exceeding last year’s result by one million euros; hence, we achieved our ninth consecutive quarterly result improvement. The front-loaded training and other expenses resulting from the accelerated growth programme amounted to over 20 million euros in 2016. During the last quarter, we had over 100 pilots tied up in trainings. Considering the seasonality of our business and the headwinds we faced towards the end of the year, we can be fairly content with our result. Due to delays in some of the A350 deliveries, the training schedule of our pilots for the new aircraft type was interrupted, which forced us to wetlease additional capacity during the quarter in order to ensure the least amount of inconvenience to our customers. This caused additional expenses during the quarter. In addition, we were forced to cancel some flights towards the end of the year. Finnair’s revenue divided by the capacity, or RASK, showed more resilience than that of some of our peers. Ancillary sales continued healthy growth, and our plan to deploy more tourist capacity to Lapland was a success. As an example, Ivalo and Rovaniemi combined are currently the largest destination for our Chinese passengers. We have specified a target to boost our revenues by 500 million euros by the end of 2019. Ancillary sales, with new revenues streams, will play a key role in achieving this target. We are also expecting the new cargo hub to be completed in 2017, which will enable increased revenue, particularly by providing better facilities for premium services for specialty goods. This year will be an important leap of growth for us. There will be a tangible increase in capacity, four new A350s and active recruitments. At the same time, we are taking serious efforts to develop the customer experience and the internal people experience. I believe this will lay a solid foundation to launch into the year.

Sweco to continue feasibility study of Helsinki-Tallinn tunnel project

The Helsinki-Tallinn tunnel project is advancing to the next phase: a feasibility study focused on preparing an implementation plan to support the project’s decision-making process. This study is a continuation of the pre-feasibility study conducted by Sweco in 2015, which resolved various aspects of project execution, traffic structure and potential socioeconomic impact. In addition to investigating technical solutions, the study will evaluate the project’s economic impact. A fixed link between Helsinki and Tallinn is expected to enhance business opportunities for both capital cities. “New sustainable solutions are needed to improve the flow of freight and passenger traffic across the Gulf of Finland. The Helsinki-Tallinn tunnel would create an important link between Scandinavia and Central Europe. We are investigating the various technical solutions at hand, such as station location, train types and operational solutions for traffic flow. The strategic environmental impact assessment is also now part of the study. Sweco was also involved in the initial pre-feasibility study phase, so we can utilise our previous knowledge of the project’s impact and requirements”, says Sweco Environment Director Juho Siipo. The project team comprises multidisciplinary experts: Sweco Finland and Estonia are joining a consortium with WSP Finland and Sweden and Amberg Engingeering from Switzerland. Amberg Engineering has collaborated with Sweco in several international transport projects, including the Brussels and Paris metros and a high-speed railway line in Sweden. '’Amberg Engineering Ltd is expert in planning, design and site supervision of ultra-long tunnels such as the Gibraltar Strait Tunnel and the Gotthard Base Tunnel. This accumulated knowledge of the specific characteristics of such infrastructures will be very conducive for this feasibility study’’, says the president of the Amberg Group Felix Amberg. The contracting authorities for the project are the Finnish Ministry of Transport and Communications, the Estonian Ministry of Economic Affairs and Communications, the Helsinki-Uusimaa Regional Council, the Harju County Government of Estonia, and the cities of Helsinki and Tallinn. The results of the pre-feasibility study will be available at the end of 2017.

More than half of US drivers surveyed (Semcon/Inizio) stated that they feel anxious before overtaking a truck on a wet road. 50% of those indicated loss of sight as one of the reasons why. ProActive Wipers (PAW) is new software that identifies where other vehicles are and combines this with knowledge about wet roads. The system knows when nearby large vehicles present a risk of sudden water splashes, and activates the wipers. At the same time as the water hits the windscreen, it’s wiped away, giving the driver a clear view. “ProActive Wipers is a good example of how we can use technology that already exists in cars in new and creative ways. This solution uses the car’s camera, radar and rain sensor to make traditional technology, like windscreen wipers, smarter and driving safer for the user,” says Magnus Carlsson, responsible for safety and autonomous driving at Semcon. Information from PAW could also be used in different ways, for example to assess the risk of aquaplaning. Semcon also sees a big potential for the solution when autonomous cars come to market. “Driverless cars are dependant on cameras and other critical sensors behind the windscreen being kept free from dirt and water. The intelligence inside PAW could therefore be used to increase safety and reliability in self-driving cars,” says Magnus Carlsson. PAW is a proprietary and patent pending innovation from Semcon, which uses information from the car’s existing equipment. PAW has been evaluated in real conditions and the software could easily be implemented in today’s cars. See the film about PAW ( Download the complete press pack including the FAQs  (

Nordea publishes its Annual Report and Sustainability Report

Today, Nordea publishes its Annual Report and Sustainability Report on Annual Report describes operations in 2016 – an eventful year for Nordea. Besides macroeconomic and regulatory challenges for the sector, Nordea contended with substantial media attention, and commenced the implementation of a sweeping transformation agenda. Two important milestones during the year were the implementation of the new legal structure, and the launch of the first service on the new core banking platform.Despite the challenging market with sustained exceptionally low interest rates, we were pleased to report an improved net interest margin. Inflow to asset management was record-high, Euromoney awarded Nordea Private Banking for having the best Nordic Private Banking offering. We also further cemented our leading position in the Nordics in corporate advisory. However, earnings declined 1% over the full year.During the year, the operations of the former Retail Banking business area were streamlined and two new customer organisations were created – Personal Banking, which serves the household market, and Commercial and Business Banking, serving SMEs. This streamlining enables a sharper focus on improving the customer experience of Nordea, and puts us in a better position to keep working to strengthen the execution capacity in each customer group.The cost progression and credit quality were in line with our forecasts. The CET1 ratio improved by 190 bp in 2016 to 18.4%, and return on equity was 11.5%. Nordea’s board proposes a dividend of EUR 0.65 per share.We expect 2017 to be eventful too, and stand prepared to face the challenges. Our strategic focus is clear. Thanks to our strong balance sheet and robust business model, we can continue to invest in our platform and hence fundamentally change the bank. We continue to focus on creating a fully digital platform, improving customer satisfaction and transforming the organisation. In so doing, we will be best at compliance, with a strong ethics and value culture, and meet our commitments towards society and generate value for our customers and shareholders.In 2016 the bank embarked on a major transformation journey. In order to ensure a sustainable business model, environmental, ethical and social aspects must be integrated into all parts of our business. During the year we established a Business Ethics and Values Committee, chaired by the CEO, and appointed a new Head of Sustainability.

Stena Line’s four new vessels planned for Belfast routes

-Introducing the world’s most fuel efficient RoPax vessels- Last year Stena announced a newbuild contract of four RoPax ferry vessels with a planned delivery schedule during 2019 and 2020.  The contract also contains an option for another four vessels to be ordered.  The four vessels are being built at the AVIC Shipyard in China and the plan is to locate the vessels on the Irish Sea, specifically on Stena Line’s routes to and from its expanding Belfast hub. “The routes to and from Belfast are strategically very important to Stena Line and during the last number of years we have made significant investments in ports and vessels to improve and develop our capacity offering a frequent high quality service for our customers to and from Belfast. Looking ahead, we intend to continue our ambitious development plan for our business in the region and the new vessels are a part of this strategic plan.   During the last few years we have seen a steady growth in freight and passenger volumes and we believe this will continue. Last year was a record year for us when we for the first time carried over 500,000 freight units through Belfast Port.  These new vessels will be the largest ferries ever to operate between Belfast and Great Britain”, said Stena Line’s CEO Niclas Mårtensson. Joe O’Neil, Commercial Director, Belfast Harbour commented: “We are delighted that Stena Line is planning for Belfast as the location for its next generation of RoPax vessels in what is a significant investment in and enhancement of Northern Ireland’s premier freight and tourism gateway.  Belfast Harbour has worked in close partnership with Stena Line over the last two decades to help it expand its Belfast routes into a flourishing hub and this very welcome investment news comes on the back of a record year for Stena Line’s freight business in Belfast Harbour.  We look forward to welcoming the new vessels and the associated benefits they will bring to Belfast Harbour and the economy of Northern Ireland.”  The new vessels are being constructed in line with Stena Line’s strategic focus on sustainability. “The new RoPax vessels will be among the most fuel efficient in the world with approximately 25% lower CO2 emissions per cargo unit than current RoPax tonnage.  Our aim is to lead the development of sustainability within the shipping industry and set a new industry standard when it comes to operational performance, emissions and cost competiveness.  The vessels will run on traditional fuel, but are designed to the class notation “gas ready” and are also prepared for scrubbers as well as catalytic converters, giving us flexibility for the future”, says Niclas Mårtensson.

Update – JOSAB delivers purification technology to Indian infrastructure for water supply

· JOSAB supplies and finances 150-250 water kiosks including purification technology to Hyderabad in a BOO project. · HMWS&SB (Hyderabad Metropolitan Water Supply and Sewerage Board) is responsible for water supply with access to the Municipal water supply and assign appropriate locations. · Water kiosks are part of the state of Telangana’s regular water supply. · JOSAB estimates that the project generates a revenue over 7 years amounting to between MSEK 65 and 100. The project sum is an estimate based on local calculations and volumes. · Hyderabad is located in India and has 7 million inhabitants. Access to clean water is scarce as the water distributed in the normal municipal network is often contaminated. Since JOSAB has received many questions regarding the project, below is an in-depth information: As informed in a press release distributed November 30, 2016, JOSAB signed on November 29, 2016 a contract with a water treatment project in which JOSAB’s products will purify water in 150-250 water kiosks in Hyderabad, India. The project is a collaboration between JOSAB, the local company Natures Spring Eco Tap Pvt Ltd and the city of Hyderabad in the state of Telangana. Water kiosks will be placed at various locations in the city of Hyderabad. JOSAB is responsible for the  purification technology and production of water kiosks, while Natures Spring Eco Tap Pvt Ltd handles the marketing and public authorities as well as the daily operation of the units. Hyderabad city is responsible for water supply and provides sites with appropriate demographic conditions selected based on the city's internal statistics of previous consumed volumes of water kiosks and water needs. The project is based on a so-called BOO (Build Own Operate), where the payment is done via water tariffs, that is, JOSAB receives part of the revenues for a period of seven years. JOSAB gets paid based on purchased volume according to an integrated meter in each water kiosk. JOSAB owns the water kiosks throughout the project and beyond. The price is determined by the state to 1 rupee per liter of water and customers will fill the water in their own bottles. Bottled water costs 10-20 rupee per liter in stores. Payment is made with cash or a prepaid cards bought in kiosks. As a base of the previously announced sales revenues is the signed agreement, together with a volume assessment by the project partner and the city of Hyderabad. The calculated volume is estimated to be 4 m3 of water per day and machine, and hence no guarantee. The technology in water kiosk allows production of 24 m3 of fresh water per day. The city proposes placement of water kiosks based on the assessed needs in areas where demand is high, such as, for example, train stations, schools and shopping malls. The cost of, and access to, raw water is carried by the city of Hyderabad. JOSAB’s share of revenues under 7 years is estimated to be in the range of MSEK 65-100. JOSAB have been ready to supply the machines starting from December 2016, but delivery of the first machines have been postponed due to delays by the authorities in Hyderabad. The previously announced schedule is estimated to be kept, and according to the agreement all equipment will be deployed before the end of June 2017. Delays due to authority administration are common in India. The inauguration of the first machines will be done in the presence of a minister and is expected to occur shortly. JOSAB manufactures water kiosks using a subcontractor based on a long-term cooperation. Production of up to 250 water kiosks are procured and the units can be delivered within the agreed time schedule. Several Indian newspapers have written about JOSAB and the project. Water kiosks are part of the regular water supply in India and is attracting a lot of interest from the public. The publicity strengthens JOSAB’s brand. So far, two English-language newspapers reported about the project and also interviewed the Mayor who confirms that the project will be rolled out in the near future.1) 2) 1)   2)   JOSAB in India JOSAB is established with its own subsidiary in Pune, India since 2012. JOSAB India has the task of establishing JOSAB’s technology in the Indian market for regular water supply. JOSAB has invested MSEK 5.8 in 2016 in India, of which MSEK 5.2 is financed through project financing from Prime World Ltd and Graceful Win Ltd. The authorities in Telangana announced in 2016 a contract to deploy between 150 and 250 water kiosks in and around the city of Hyderabad and with the requirement that JOSAB’s zeolite-based water treatment method should be used. JOSAB’s ecological purification method has been decisive for the choice of technology. JOSAB lacks tender license in Telangana and hence could not submit bids. In November JOSAB therefor signed a technical partnership with Natures Spring Eco Tap Pvt Ltd, a project company started for the purpose, and which has an agreement with the city of Hyderabad. The contract was signed on 29 November 2016. JOSAB supplies water kiosks containing JOSAB’s patented and ecological water treatment process. Water kiosks are part of the regular water supply in India and the agreement has a strategic value for JOSAB. After four years of testing of JOSAB’s products the state of Kerala introduced JOSAB’s technology as one of five approved water treatment technologies in public procurement in the state. JOSAB India received in March 2016 a tender licensed C that is valid in the state of Kerala and took its first order in the state in spring 2016. Tenders License C allows only participation in smaller projects, but with a number of additional orders in the state of Kerala qualify JOSAB India to apply for the higher bids license B. Offer B license will enable JOSAB to bid in India's states in their own name. Tender License B increases JOSAB’s opportunities to grow in India. Tenders totals in contracts that are made available with tender license B is also significantly greater than those available for holders of tender license C. In the state of Kerala, the World Bank in 2011 allocated MUSD 222 in a program for water and sanitation projects. The program is open to investment financing until 31 December 20183). With the State's approval of JOSAB’s technology and private tenders license in Kerala JOSAB India Pvt Ltd. can participate in procurements during 2017 and 2018, that is ongoing regarding this major project. 3)   The potential in India is very large for JOSAB. Large areas of land, which includes the state of Kerala, has polluted rivers, which are important for the water supply, which is suited to be cleaned with JOSAB’s purification process. India seeks ecological solutions for water treatment and JOSAB’s green profile with ecological water treatment technology is a good fit.

CEO comments The final quarter of 2016 saw us achieve a major milestone for Camurus. Results from our completed Phase 3 study of CAM2038 in opioid dependence demonstrated significantly better treatment effect with our long-acting depots versus standard of care with daily sublingual tablets. With this achievement, we now initiated the work on the market approval applications for both the EMA and FDA. Our long-acting buprenorphine depots, CAM2038, for treatment of opioid dependence, clearly fulfilled efficacy primary endpoints agreed with the European Medicines Agency (EMA) as well as US Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Additionally, secondary analyses demonstrated superior efficacy versus daily sublingual buprenorphine/naloxone tablets. These clear-cut, positive Phase 3 results are particularly impressive in the light of the randomized, controlled double blind, double dummy design, and with regard to the complex patient population that was included directly from the active opioid misuse. Approximately 70% of the 428 study participants were using heroin and more than half of them were injection opioid users. Most of them also used other illicit drugs, including cocaine, amphetamine and marijuana. This group is representative of patients starting their treatment of opioid dependency both in EU and the US. Present daily treatment with buprenorphine or methadone has been clearly demonstrated to be effective in decreasing opioid misuse, reducing mortality and the spreading of infectious diseases. Unfortunately, these treatments have some significant limitations. These include poor treatment adherence, costs and stigma in connection to need of frequent clinic visits and supervised dosing, overdosing, as well as diversion and misuse. Using long-acting medications, these limitations can be significantly reduced, or even eliminated, as pointed out by Prof. Edward Nunes MD, PhD, Columbia University Medical School during his presentation at Camurus’ first Capital Markets and R&D Day in Stockholm, December 14, 2016. Combined with the documented treatment efficacy and favorable safety profile, our long-acting depot products have the potential to transform the treatment of opioid dependence and provide improvement to patients, healthcare providers and society. Process of filing market authorization and new drug applications for CAM2038 to the EMA and FDA mid 2017 are on track. During the period, important advances were also made regarding commercial manufacturing as well as establishment of our commercial organization and operational structure in front of the planned launching of CAM2038 in Europe during 2018. We have been working closely with experts and stakeholders within the various national health systems, as well as performing health economic analyses and modelling. Initial results will be presented at the AMCP Managed Care Specialty Pharmacy Annual Meeting i Denver, Colorado in March 2017. In our collaboration with Novartis, following the announcement of positive Phase 2 results for our subcutaneous long-acting octreotide depot, CAM2029, for treatment of acromegaly and neuroendocrine tumours (NET), a clinical study report has been completed during the quarter. Results will be presented at several conferences during the spring, including ENETS, Barcelona in March and at ENDO, Orlando in April. After completed preparations for GMP-manufacturing of the product during the quarter, GMP manufacturing is now initiated ahead of planned Phase 3 start later in the year. In the collaboration with Rhythm regarding weekly setmelanotide FluidCrystal® investigational product for treatment of genetic obesity disease, GMP-manufacturing was successfully completed and preparations of a clinical trial are ongoing ahead of the start during 2017. In our early development pipeline, we initiated a clinical pharmacokinetic study of new product candidates for treatment of pain as well as nausea and vomiting. Two of the programs are conducted with our US partner Braeburn Pharmaceuticals, after having expanded our license agreement during the period. A new exciting program in our pipeline is a subcutaneous depot of treprostinil, CAM2043, for treatment of pulmonary arterial hypertension. PAH is a rare progressive lung and heart disease with a poor life expectancy of less than 3 years, if left untreated. Based on our preclinical results, we believe that CAM2043 has potential to significantly improve treatment versus available treatments. Presently treprostinil is administrated using continuous infusion, a complex procedure associated with significant and treatment limiting side-effects such as pain and serious infections. The PAH market exceeded USD 4 billion 2015, with treprostinil representing about 25%. Our strong results delivered during the past year have resulted in an increased interest in Camurus and contributed to a positive development of the company value. Behind the success is our team of fantastic coworkers, dedicated partners and clinical investigators, as well as their study teams. Warm thanks to you all!

Live Casino continues to strengthen its position among operators as well as players. Our focus on the quality of the user experience, offering the broadest product portfolio for all devices and delivering a leading service to our customers are some of the factors behind our strong results in 2016. The year ended with continued solid demand for our services and a very high pace of delivery. The fourth quarter is also seasonally positive with a high level of activity from our customers. In addition to several new customers, existing customers are continuing to expand their offerings. This quarter, new dedicated environments were launched for 888, Virgin Games and bwin, among others. Existing customers are also choosing to expand into more markets where, for example, the aforementioned bwin launched its offering in Denmark during the quarter. We have also expanded further in our latest studio at Grand Casino Bucharest. Another growth driver is the heavy increase in mobile gaming – in the fourth quarter, almost half of the gaming revenues generated via Evolution’s platform derived from mobile devices. The equivalent number is above 50% among our largest customers. Extensive development is also taking place on the product side. The roll-out of Live Ultimate Texas Hold’em to operators is continuing. We have also launched another derivative of our world leading Live Baccarat product, Baccarat Control Squeeze, where the player is given even more opportunity to actively participate in the course of the game. After the end of the quarter, we have also launched an entirely new game, Dream Catcher, inspired by popular entertainment shows. It is the world’s first game in the Live Lucky Wheel category, which reinforces our position as the market’s prime innovator in the Live segment. At the publishing of this report, this year’s ICE, Europe’s largest gaming trade fair, has just been held. As a temperature gauge on the industry, I can report that this was the most intense exhibition to date, with a very large interest in our services. Apart from premiering the above-mentioned Dream Catcher, Dual Play Baccarat was also one of our main attractions.

We have a longstanding relationship and this decision further adds to our common aspirations.” - - - About haemophilia BHaemophilia B is caused by having substantially reduced or no factor IX activity, which is needed for normal blood clotting.[i] ( The World Federation of Hemophilia estimates that approximately 28,000 people are currently diagnosed with haemophilia B worldwide.[ii] ( People with haemophilia B may experience bleeding episodes in joints and muscles that cause pain, decreased mobility and irreversible joint damage. In the worst cases, these bleeding episodes can cause organ bleeds and life-threatening haemorrhages. Injections of factor IX temporarily replace clotting factors necessary to resolve bleeding and, when used prophylactically, to prevent new bleeding episodes.i About the Sobi™ and Bioverativ collaborationSobi and Bioverativ collaborate on the development and commercialisation of Alprolix and Elocta/ELOCTATE®. Bioverativ has final development and commercialisation rights in North America and all other regions in the world excluding the Sobi territory, and has manufacturing responsibility for ELOCTATE and Alprolix. Sobi has final development and commercialisation rights in the Sobi territory (essentially Europe, North Africa, Russia and most Middle Eastern markets). Bioverativ was created as a spin-off from Biogen’s haemophilia business and separated from Biogen effective February 1, 2017.

In addition, the parties also agreed on a 10-year earnout period, based on revenue from the PrezenZ technology.

Experiences available for StarVR include John Wick Chronicles: Arcade Edition and the range will be gradually extended as new VR experiences in both film and games become available. StarVR was positively received by visitors and along with John Wick Arcade Edition, is currently one of the most popular VR experiences in the center. · After the opening of the first IMAX VR Experience center in Los Angeles, Starbreeze announced that the company is negotiating with IMAX regarding the continuation of the agreement on premium experiences in IMAX VR Centers, which was announced in May 2016. In light of the decision of IMAX to broaden its offering to include widely available VR experiences during the launch of the center, Starbreeze anticipates that the form of collaboration will be adapted accordingly. · The VR game John Wick: Chronicles was released on Steam for HTC Vive on February 9, in connection with the premiere of the movie John Wick: Chapter 2.

STARBREEZE KEEPS DELIVERING CEO BO ANDERSSON KLINT GIVES HIS COMMENT We’re proud to yet again show a triple digit growth for this quarter and the highest EBITDA since the launch of PAYDAY 2. It is a solid performance that shows our ability to deliver profitability while we are scaling our business to secure future growth. PAYDAY The PAYDAY franchise generated SEK 37.2 million (SEK 47.7 million) in total whereof SEK 0.0 million (SEK 14.4 million) in production support. As the sole owner of the PAYDAY IP, we no longer receive any production support revenues. We’re additionally still awaiting 505 to recoup USD 5 million on console, while we get 100% of the healthy PC sales. Moreover, we expect 505 to have reached their USD 5 million recoup in Q1 2017 as we see impressive PAYDAY performance through digital distribution on consoles following the lastest update. DEAD BY DAYLIGHT We’re over the moon with Dead by Daylight, a complete success both strategically and financially. The game has now sold over 1.8 million units on PC and contributes with SEK 54.6 million to Starbreeze net revenues in Q4, making it the best quarter through the game’s lifetime. An impressive trend that we, together with Behavior, will nurse carefully as we expand the product to consoles in Q2 2017. To date, the game has generated over 267 MSEK in gross sales on Steam. STARBREEZE FINANCES We’re also delighted to see that both our acquisitions, ePawn and Nozon, for the first time are contributing to top-line. Both businesses are now fully integrated and run at full speed within Starbreeze. As we continue our steady growth we need to invest in our key assets PAYDAY, OVERKILL's The Walking Dead, Valhalla engine, StarVR and in our very important publishing business. Consequently, our operating expenses, excluding royalties to publishing partners, have increased with SEK 46.7 million or 78 % compared to Q4 2015. The incremental spend is in all material aspects still derived from employee related expenses as we continue to ramp up the teams for delivering on our plans. Despite the increase in costs we show a remarkable profitability with an EBITDA margin reaching  23.4% underpinned by a strong development of our top line but also boosted by a stronger US dollar.   Boosted by successful financing activities during the third quarter, we’re ending the year with a cash position of SEK 669.4 million (SEK 85.4 million). To be clear, these funds will not be put in the bank to rest, they will continue to build our momentum. Hence we expect it to be reduced over time. Worth noting is also that we now have positive cash flow from our operating activities amounting to         SEK 12.9 million (SEK -3.0 million). When closing the fourth quarter we also close the financial year 2016 where net revenues reached SEK 345.5 MSEK (SEK 218.4 million) which is 62 % better than the financial year when we launched PAYDAY 2. EBITDA reached SEK 81.2 million (SEK 49.5 million) and net profit SEK 57.1 million (SEK 39.4 million). Our core business is doing very well. VR-CENTER IN LOS ANGELES As the first phase of building and operating a pilot VR center, mimicking our VR arcade concept StarCade, with IMAX is underway, we have entered into negotiations with IMAX about the future sale of content and StarVR-headsets into this business. At the VR center, we operate under our original agreement and have two pods equipped with the latest iteration of our StarVR HMD showcasing John Wick Chronicles Arcade Edition in collaboration with Lionsgate. Since January, we have thoroughly enjoyed having customers and potential partners visit the center to experience both the hardware as well as our content, something that has strengthened our view that location-based VR at this time is the best way for consumers to experience high-quality VR. Our goal is to sell StarVR systems to as many different location-based businesses, theme parks and B2B projects as possible. Our aim is to sell a broader range of headsets and systems through our joint venture with Acer under the brand StarVR. STARVR EVOLUTION While we, just as planned, have not yet started shipping larger volumes of StarVR, the current interest from multiple markets and from prominent brands and business sets us up well for the mass production phase beginning later in 2017. We focus on distributing and prioritizing the current development version of the headset to key partners, ensuring that we are compatible with leading industry systems and standards to fully enable us to lead the charge once we deliver the first full production unit. We estimate approximately two more development iterations during the year, where we trust that the third iteration will include Tobii’s proprietary eye tracking. Durability, field of view, hygiene, resolution, refresh rates and weight are all key aspects that we improve constantly and according to plan. The roadmap of StarVR is clear, we’re still targeting B2B partners as our primary business, and we keep delivering as planned at our decided phase. We aim to make the development of StarVR and sales of VR content a significant business for us down the line. We secure this through making early investments and strategic collaborations. This will educate us internally how to master the experience design and optimize our production. Once the market is mature, we’ll be in a pole position. For the fourth quarter StarVR with related activities account for less than 10% of Starbreeze operating expenses. NOZON’S PRESENZ While we’re integrating all of our recent acquisitions with Starbreeze vision to build future ecosystems, Nozon’s Presenz technology is generating quite the buzz in Hollywood. Nozon is now working hard together with our business development team to produce its first showcase VR short movie that we believe will build the foundation for a major cogwheel in our VR offering. Using PresenZ, movie studios can use their CG assets from feature films repurposing them easily for VR movies without losing visual fidelity. We strongly believe that together with the high-resolution of StarVR, this can be a groundbreaking technology for movie and entertainment production everywhere.   PAYDAY MOBILE, BCN STUDIO As a separate note to this report, we also just announced that we’ve opened a new office in Barcelona, Spain. The Barcelona Studio consists of a handful of very talented individuals that have been with us in Stockholm for quite some time. Together with old friends and now new colleagues joining us from a prominent mobile developer, they form our task force to steer our mobile projects with a 100% focus. The bulk of the development will mainly be outsourced but we require a dedicated team from Starbreeze to make sure we are on point and deliver with the same focus as our other products. Starbreeze Barcelona will closely monitor the wrap up of Geminose and also focus its efforts on PAYDAY: Crime War. After a due diligence of the progress on the mobile version of our beloved PAYDAY franchise, we found a lack of focus on our product. As we want to see this game realized as badly as many of our fans, we’ve moved production to another studio, BadFly Interactive. As part of a work-for-hire partnership, BadFly have hit the ground running and we look forward to sharing more from the game in the months to come. The project has already accelerated considerably and is now fully playable in multiplayer with the games backend in place. The following months will be dedicated to building more content and polishing the gameplay format to maximize the fun of the final product. In 2017 we also continue our full productions of RAID, OVERKILLS The Walking Dead, CROSSFIRE Co-Op and Geminose. Our lineup is strong and our teams dedicate their full energy in making the games as high-quality as recent products such as the PAYDAY and Dead by Daylight DLC releases. Our success is of course shared by and thanks to our partners. Lately we had the pleasure to work with Universal on our PAYDAY Scarface DLCs in December. Additionally, we’ve continued our extremely successful partnership with Lionsgate on two DLCs for PAYDAY and the release of the stand-alone VR game John Wick Chronicles on Steam and in the IMAX VR center. These collaborations are tremendously important to us as we establish Starbreeze as a trusted partner for top-tier brands as well as it gives us an ever-growing community of fans from near and far enjoying and talking about Starbreeze products. Our publishing portfolio has grown to secure a steady flow of products, big and small, for the upcoming year. We are proud to have signed up Double Fine with Tim Shafer leading the development of their new AAA game Psychonauts 2. We are constantly looking to attract leading teams to our publishing business and 2017 will see a number of these projects initiated by Starbreeze. It is with great satisfaction that we also can announce that PAYDAY 3 production is officially initiated and at a full design stage. I’d like to especially clarify, that this project will enjoy as much time as we deem needed. It will be done when it’s done. This is our single most important brand today and the cornerstone of our business and we will treat it accordingly. Updates in the near future might be scares and far between. You simply don’t rush PAYDAY 3. With a team of over 550 talented developers, post the acquisition of Dhruva, we are well staffed for the full productions going forward. With this strategic acquisition our capacity is very satisfying, meanwhile we keep recruiting more game developers to secure quality and talent for the future. Our AAA game productions and our innovative VR pipeline is providing our developers with real challenges and exciting careers. At Starbreeze, we look forward to keep delivering on our games, services and strategy for 2017 and beyond.

Stora Enso plans to shut down one SC paper machine at Kvarnsveden Mill in Sweden

Stora Enso will start co-determination negotiations with employees at its Kvarnsveden Mill in Sweden regarding a plan to reorganise the mill, including a permanent closure of paper machine (PM) 8. The planned actions would affect a maximum of 140 employees. The paper machine has an annual capacity of 100 000 tonnes of super-calendered uncoated magazine paper (SC) and it is planned to be shut down by the end of the second quarter of 2017. The plan would result in annual cost savings of EUR 12 million. Stora Enso will book restructuring charges of approximately EUR 17 million as an item affecting comparability (IAC) in its Q1/2017 results, of which about EUR 14 million will be cash costs. The planned closure would not have material impact on Stora Enso’s sales or operational EBIT. “We plan to reorganise Kvarnsveden Mill to ensure its competitiveness in the structurally declining paper market. This plan includes the permanent shutdown of PM8, which, due to its small size and technical age, is unfortunately no longer competitive in the current market conditions. We appreciate the efforts taken by the employees, and regret that this plan would be necessary to support the competitiveness of Kvarnsveden Mill going forward,” says Kati ter Horst, EVP Paper division. The closure of PM8 at Kvarnsveden Mill would not impact Stora Enso’s SC paper offering. In Europe, Stora Enso continues to produce SC paper at Kvarnsveden Mill PM12 as well at Maxau Mill in Germany and Langerbrugge Mill in Belgium. The group also serves its SC customers from Dawang Mill in China. No decisions regarding the planned reorganisation or employee impact will be taken until the co-determination negotiations have been concluded. Production at Kvarnsveden Mill would continue on two lines, PM10 for improved newsprint paper and PM12 for SC papers.

Lynparza positive in metastatic BRCA breast cancer

This announcement contains inside information 17 February 2017, 07:00 GMT LYNPARZA MEETS PRIMARY ENDPOINT IN PHASE III TRIAL IN BRCA-MUTATED METASTATIC BREAST CANCER Lynparza provided a statistically-significant improvement in progression-free survival compared to chemotherapy First positive randomised trial to evaluate the efficacy and safety of a PARP inhibitor beyond ovarian cancer AstraZeneca today announced positive results from its Phase III OLYMPIAD trial comparing Lynparza (olaparib) tablets (300mg twice daily) to physician's choice of a standard of care chemotherapy in the treatment of patients with HER2-negative metastatic breast cancer harbouring germline BRCA1 or BRCA2 mutations. Patients treated with Lynparza showed a statistically-significant and clinically-meaningful improvement in progression-free survival (PFS) compared with those who received chemotherapy (capecitabine, vinorelbine or eribulin). Sean Bohen, Executive Vice President, Global Medicines Development and Chief Medical Officer at AstraZeneca, said: "These results are positive news for patients with BRCA-mutated metastatic breast cancer, a disease with a high unmet need, and are the first positive Phase III data for a PARP inhibitor beyond ovarian cancer. This is highly encouraging for the development of our broad portfolio which aims to treat multiple cancers by targeting DNA damage response pathways." Initial findings from the OLYMPIAD study indicate that the safety profile of Lynparza was consistent with previous studies.   A full evaluation of the OLYMPIAD data is ongoing and the results will be submitted for presentation at a forthcoming medical meeting. AstraZeneca will be working with regulatory authorities to make Lynparza available to patients with this type of breast cancer. About Metastatic Breast Cancer Approximately one in eight women are diagnosed with breast cancer. Of these patients, approximately one-third are either diagnosed with or progress to the metastatic stage of the disease.[i] Despite treatment options increasing during the past three decades there is currently no cure for patients diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer. Thus, the primary aim of treatment is to slow progression of the disease for as long as possible, improving or at least maintaining a patient's quality of life. About OLYMPIAD OLYMPIAD is a randomised, multi-center Phase III trial assessing the efficacy and safety of Lynparza (300 mg twice daily) to 'physician's choice' chemotherapy (capecitabine, vinorelbine, eribulin) in 302 patients with HER2-negative metastatic breast cancer with germline BRCA1 or BRCA2 mutations, which are predicted or suspected to be deleterious. The international study was conducted in 19 countries from across Europe, Asia, North America and South America. The primary endpoint of the trial was progression-free survival (PFS) as measured by a Blinded Independent Central Review (BICR). Secondary endpoints include overall survival (OS), time to second progression or death (PFS2), objective response rate (ORR), and effect on health-related quality of life (HRQoL). About Germline BRCA mutations BRCA1 and BRCA2 are human genes that produce proteins responsible for repairing damaged DNA and play an important role maintaining the genetic stability of cells. When either of these genes is mutated, or altered, such that its protein product either is not made or does not function correctly, DNA damage may not be repaired properly. As a result, cells are more likely to develop additional genetic alterations that can lead to cancer.[ii] Specific inherited mutations in BRCA1 and BRCA2 increase the risk of female breast and ovarian cancers, and they have been associated with increased risks of several additional types of cancer. Together, BRCA1 and BRCA2 mutations account for about 20 to 25 percent of hereditary breast cancers[iii] and about 5 to 10 percent of all breast cancers[iv]. In addition, mutations in BRCA1 and BRCA2 account for around 15 percent of ovarian cancers overall[v]. Breast and ovarian cancers associated with BRCA1 and BRCA2 mutations tend to develop at younger ages than their nonhereditary counterparts. About Lynparza Lynparza (olaparib) is an innovative, first-in-class oral poly ADP-ribose polymerase (PARP) inhibitor that may exploit tumour DNA damage response (DDR) pathway deficiencies to preferentially kill cancer cells. Lynparza is the foundation of AstraZeneca's industry-leading portfolio of compounds targeting DNA damage response (DDR) mechanisms in cancer cells. Lynparza is currently approved by regulatory health authorities in the EU for use as monotherapy for the maintenance treatment of adult patients with platinum-sensitive relapsed BRCA-mutated (germline and/or somatic) high grade serous epithelial ovarian, fallopian tube or primary peritoneal cancer who are in response (complete or partial) to platinum-based chemotherapy. It is also approved in the US as monotherapy in patients with deleterious or suspected deleterious germline BRCA-mutated (as detected by an FDA- test) advanced ovarian cancer who have been treated with three or more prior lines of chemotherapy. Lynparza is currently being investigated in another separate non-metastatic breast cancer Phase III study called OLYMPIA. This study is still open and recruiting patients internationally. About AstraZeneca in Oncology AstraZeneca has a deep-rooted heritage in Oncology and offers a quickly growing portfolio of new medicines that have the potential to transform patients' lives and the Company's future. With at least 6 new medicines to be launched between 2014 and 2020 and a broad pipeline of small molecules and biologics in development, we are committed to advancing Oncology as one of AstraZeneca's six Growth Platforms focused on lung, ovarian, breast and blood cancers. In addition to our core capabilities, we actively pursue innovative partnerships and investments that accelerate the delivery of our strategy, as illustrated by our investment in Acerta Pharma in haematology. By harnessing the power of four scientific platforms -- immuno-oncology, the genetic drivers of cancer and resistance, DNA damage response and antibody drug conjugates -- and by championing the development of personalised combinations, AstraZeneca has the vision to redefine cancer treatment and one day eliminate cancer as a cause of death. About AstraZeneca AstraZeneca is a global, science-led biopharmaceutical company that focuses on the discovery, development and commercialisation of prescription medicines, primarily for the treatment of diseases in three main therapy areas - Oncology, Cardiovascular & Metabolic Diseases and Respiratory. The Company also is selectively active in the areas of autoimmunity, neuroscience and infection.

In all essentials, we completed the transformation of the company that had been in progress throughout the year. A key part of this transformation was the focusing of the company’s operations exclusively onto research and development in the field of oncology. This focus was given extra emphasis with the acquisition of two oncology projects in late development phases, both of which have considerable potential. The acquisition strengthens and balances our research portfolio and gives us a wider range of projects in different phases, shifting the company’s primary focus from early stage research to clinical development.As a further step in this process, we also divested BioPhausia with its drug portfolio Nordic Brands. After having considered and prepared a separate stock exchange listing of BioPhausia, we judged that a sale to Karo Pharma AB was the best alternative for our shareholders. An Extraordinary General Meeting in early February 2017 endorsed the Board’s proposal that the net proceeds from the sale of SEK 870 million should be distributed to Medivir’s shareholders in the form of a voluntary redemption programme.We also reorganised the company’s early stage research and administrative functions during the quarter. It is estimated that this will give annual savings totalling approximately SEK 110 million.Furthermore, we continued to make progress in our research projects during the quarter, both in our internal portfolio and in partner projects. I would like to make particular mention of the fact that we selected two new candidate drugs from our own research portfolio that have now proceeded to preclinical development: MIV-323 for the treatment of RSV infections and MIV-818 for the treatment of liver cancer. In keeping with our new exclusive oncology focus, we will continue to pursue the development of MIV-818 in-house, while for that of MIV-323 we will be seeking a partner.Along with MIV-802 for the treatment of hepatitis C, which we licensed out to Trek Therapeutics in the third quarter of 2016, these projects are clear indications of the improved productivity of our early stage research operations and ability to continue to produce new, well-differentiated candidate drugs in areas of great unmet medical needs on the basis of our own technology platform.The osteoarthritis trial MIV-711 proceeded according to plan and is now fully enrolled. As before, we expect to report data from the study during the third quarter of 2017.In November our partner, Janssen Research & Development, announced that they are building on earlier interesting results by initiating a phase IIb study with the combination of simeprevir, odalasvir and AL-335 for the treatment of hepatitis C.Q4 royalties attributable to the hepatitis C drug OLYSIO® (simeprevir) amounted to SEK 5.6 million as a result of the decline in global net sales.The extensive transformation we have now achieved gives me great hope for the future. Our strong, balanced research and development portfolio with a focus on oncology, based on our exciting technology platforms for protease inhibitors and nucleosides/nucleotides, has considerable potential to create long-term value for the shareholders and will generate a continuous news flow in 2017 and the years to come. It is therefore with a sense of pride and great confidence that I feel spring 2017 is the right time to hand over the baton to a new CEO, Christine Lind. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all our engaged shareholders, the Board of Medivir, all our employees and business partners for the stimulating and intense years at the helm of Medivir and I wish the company every success in the future. As a shareholder, I will be following the progress with great interest!

Summa Equity’s first fund closes at SEK 4.5 billion

Summa Equity was founded in 2016 by five partners brought together by a shared vision of building a leading specialised private equity firm in the Nordic lower mid-market. The firm focuses on capturing the investment opportunity provided by thematic megatrends that are expected to drive long term growth. Reynir Indahl, Managing Partner, Summa Equity comments: “Our investment strategy is designed to address the challenges associated with generating long-term profitability in a volatile market underpinned by low economic growth. In the process we hope to be part of developing innovative solutions to some of the most pressing challenges of our time. The closing of our first fund brings us closer to realising this vision and marks the beginning of an exciting journey.” Summa Equity Fund I is backed by a broad investor base comprising endowments, foundations, pension funds, insurance firms and funds of funds across the Nordics, Europe and North America. The Fund’s strategy will focus on investments related to four themes: resource scarcity, energy efficiency, changing demographics and tech-enabled businesses. The firm has offices in Stockholm and Oslo and the partners are Reynir Indahl, Jenny Keisu, Johannes Lien, Christian Melby and Tommi Unkuri. Two deals, Sortera and eGain, have already been completed for the fund: · Sortera is the market leader in collection and recycling of building material waste in Sweden’s largest urban areas. · eGain is a leading Nordic technology/service provider of remote optimisation and climate-based control of heating in multi-apartment buildings. Jenny Keisu, Partner and COO of Summa Equity, continues: “Sortera and eGain are great examples of the investment opportunities we see. They both have megatrend driven, resilient business models uncoupled from GDP growth and we have already identified a number of value creation initiatives that are being implemented to stimulate their respective growth strategies. A third investment is finalised and will be announced shortly providing a solid foundation for the fund.” Summa Equity’s investment philosophy also contributes to a strong environmental, social and governance (ESG) profile with the goal to generate long-term sustainable growth and profitability. As part of this commitment the firm will be the first Nordic Private Equity firm to report towards the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Summa Equity was advised by London-based Rede Partners, an independent fund raising and secondary adviser to the private equity industry.
