Scania links up with Ericsson to test 5G mobile technology

The technology will feature prominently in trials of autonomous driving and connected vehicles. Three state-of-the-art mobile base stations have been installed at Scania’s R&D facility and the test network will be continuously updated with new technology as it is being developed. Explains Anders Ställberg, Scania’s Project Manager for City Automation, “The new test network with its 5G components allows for a high quality mobile network service, with low-latency and high bandwidth, where a lot of complex data can be transferred very quickly and very reliably – providing us with a ‘priority communications lane’ when it comes to projects such as autonomous driving and platooning.” Having a ‘priority lane’ has sometimes been an issue in crowded pre-5G networks, where users have to jostle for space with those who are streaming films, music or games, for example. 5G will support many more instances of use than 4G networks – particularly in communication between machines. For Scania, the low latency (delay) in 5G connections means that the new technology could be used by vehicles transmitting braking or directional information to each other, where speed and reliability are vital. It could also be used to help improve the reliability and speed of the exchange of the information between the two or more vehicles in a truck platoon. Where previously WLAN technology has been used, the 5G technology, with its guaranteed level of latency and bandwidth, could offer an alternative. The new technology can also play a key role in tests of Scania’s autonomous vehicle system, such as self-driving vehicles continuously updating a map for autonomous driving, stored on a central server, for distribution to other vehicles in the system. Both Scania and Ericsson feel that the 5G trials will prove to be of great value. Says Anders Ställberg, “It allows Scania to further develop the capabilities underpinning our ongoing projects, while Ericsson fulfils its desire to test its new technology in a working, practical environment.” Torbjörn Lundahl, Programme Director for the 5G National Research Programme at Ericsson Research, agrees. “We want to show other companies how 5G can enable and support the digital transformation of their industry., We hope to gain valuable insights and innovations that will pave the way for  further digitalisation, using 5G as an enabler. The trials with Scania will help us to understand the requirements to ensure they are met by the 5G standard and products, and deepens our experience with the transportation sector which is a focus industry for Ericsson.” Looking ahead, the trials will not just be limited to the Södertälje testing facility. Scania will also have access to the 5G connection at Ericsson’s head office. In fact, Ericsson’s 5G test network in Kista was already used to trial smaller, self-driving buses at the end of April during Drive Sweden’s ‘Kista Mobility Week’. And, Kista will be the venue for future demos of autonomous vehicles for Scania’s city automation project.

Cleantech Invest becomes a shareholder in fast-growing ‘food-rescuing’ company ResQ Club

Cleantech Invest has made an investment in ResQ Club by subscribing new shares in the company representing 6.5 % of the shares after the investment. In addition, Cleantech Invest has entered into a share exchange agreement with two of ResQ Club’s current shareholders, to further increase its shareholding in the company by approximately 2.2 %. After the investment and share exchange, Cleantech Invest owns 8.7% of ResQ Club. Other participants in the investment round include Cleantech Invest board member, previous Tesla Motors VP Peter Carlsson, Itrim founder Martin Anderlind, and HYY Yhtymä, the asset management company of the student union of the University of Helsinki. The investment takes place as ResQ Club enters into the Swedish market, where the company from today is operational in Stockholm, Göteborg, and Malmö. Alexander Lidgren, CEO of Cleantech Invest, joins the Board of Directors of ResQ Club in connection with the investment. The ResQ Club service enables consumers to purchase surplus food portions from restaurants and cafés. The prices of ‘resQd’ portions are typically at a 40-70% discount. The service enables restaurants to gain additional revenue from otherwise wasted food, attract new customers, and be forerunners in the fight against food waste. ResQ Club’s team has already been able to create a popular service and start international growth and with the investment will be able to grow and expand even faster into international markets. Tuure Parkkinen, CEO of ResQ Club: “We are extremely happy to have attracted this group of investors. Cleantech Invest shares our environmental values and has a good international network that they have already put to use for us. In less than four months after the public launch of our service, we already have over 17 000 registered users and thousands of food portions ‘resQd’ every week. We are eager to see what the response will be in Sweden. These are exciting times!” Alexander Lidgren, CEO of Cleantech Invest: “ResQ Club has quickly established a service which is a great deal for everyone – restaurants, customers and the environment. The food serving’s surplus is some 10-25% in restaurants so this is clearly an untapped potential for resource efficiency. Being a former café owner and chef myself, I have carried lots of perfectly good food to the waste bin. I am keen to see ResQ Club grow and I am keen to start using the app also in Sweden!“ A recent study by the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research showed that 30% to 40% of food produced around the world is never eaten, due to being spoiled after harvest, in transportation, or thrown away by retailers or consumers. This wasted food, whilst being a tragedy in a world where billions of people are starving every single day, is a significant creator of greenhouse gas emissions (estimated at 3.3 gigatonnes of CO2equivalent). Food production also imposes a significant strain on local ecosystems and threatens biodiversity through the use of pesticides and fertilizers. The EU has set a target to halve per capita food waste by 2030 at the retail and consumer level: http://ec.europa.eu/food/safety/food_waste/eu_actions/index_en.htm The ResQ Club mobile app is available on iPhone and Android, and the service can also be used with any device with a web browser at: https://resq-club.com/app. It was launched publicly on January 28th. Currently, the service has: - over 17 000 registered users,- over 150 active provider partners (restaurants, bakeries, cafes and hotels)- over 300 portions resQd daily. Share swap info Cleantech Invest will issue in total 41,268 new class A shares for subscription at EUR 1.26 per share. These shares represent 0.2% of Cleantech Invest. The shares are exchanged for a total of 260 class B shares in Resq Club owned by two current shareholders. These shares represent 2.2% of Resq Club.

WntResearch submits patent application for novel methods of measuring biological effects of the company’s drug candidate Foxy-5

WntResearch has applied for a patent on two novel methods to measure biological effects in humans of the company’s Wnt-5a-agonist drug candidate Foxy-5. These method also have the potential to detect the effects of the company’s second drug candidate Box-5, a Wnt-5a-antagonist. The methods facilitate the drug candidates’ development and will be used for the evaluation of the company’s drug candidate Foxy-5 in current and future clinical studies, which is deemed to be of great importance for the future development of this potential treatment for metastasization of tumours. Professor Tommy Andersson’s research group at Lund University has under a long time focused on the protein Wnt-5a and its significance in metastasization of prostate-, colon- breast- and skin cancer. A result of this research is the identification of two peptides that function as either a Wnt-5a agonist (Foxy-5) or a Wnt-5a-antagonist (Box-5). WntResearch currently hold the patents for these two peptides and have under several years of intensive work continued with bringing the drug candidates Foxy-5 and Box-5 to the clinical development phase. Foxy-5 is the substance that has advanced furthest in this process and a clinical phase 1b-study is currently ongoing, whilst Box-5 remains in preclinical phase. Foxy-5 has shown a near total lack of toxicity in both preclinical and clinical studies, and WntResearch has therefore been in great need of a method that could confirm whether the concentrations of Foxy-5 that is currently studied results in biological activity. The aforementioned patent application is of importance to WntResearch and its future drug development of Foxy-5 and Box-5. Data from the performed preclinical and clinical studies have both laid the foundation for the two methods covered by the patent application, and one of the methods shows that WntResearch can measure the biological effects of Foxy-5 in the currently studied dose range.   WntResearch expects that the measuring methods covered in the patent application will facilitate the selection of an adequate dose of Foxy-5 in future clinical studies.

SAS increases capacity by almost half a million seats during the winter season

When the SAS Winter Program is rolled out at the end of October, travelers in Scandinavia will have access to a broader range of departures to popular destinations domestically, within Scandinavia and in Europe. "We are always working to improve the offering we deliver to our customers. In addition to flying to popular winter vacation destinations and continuing to invest our energies on Asia and the USA, we are now also increasing the number of departures on popular routes," says Evind Roald, Commercial Director at SAS. More flights from Stockholm and more seats on Danish flights Increased demand on the Swedish market means that Kiruna and Amsterdam will now receive three daily flights from Stockholm instead of two. SAS is adding a further daily departure to Helsinki, bringing the total to nine a day, whilst the direct route to Trondheim is set to be increased from one to two daily departures. Travelers on domestic flights within Denmark will have access to an additional 38,000 seats. The bulk of this increase will be on the Copenhagen-Ålborg route. In addition to the new direct route to Miami, which will be launched in September, more flights are set to be added to the company's Krakow, Vienna, Reykjavik and Faro routes, making them year-round destinations from Copenhagen. In addition, SAS will also continue to offer a fourth daily departure between Copenhagen and Stuttgart. SAS strengthens its offering and capacity to North Norway The increasing number of tourists looking to enjoy winter activities and the spectacle of the Northern Lights in North Noway has seen SAS take the step of further strengthening its offering to Tromsö, Bodö and Svalbard during this coldest part of the year. In total, capacity on flights between Oslo and North Norway will increase by around 90,000 seats. The number of departures on the Stockholm-Tromsö route will increase from two to four during the midwinter period. In addition, the number of daily departures from Oslo to Helsinki will also increase, going from the current two to three. Furthermore, the Oslo-Rome route will also benefit from flights year-round. 130,000 more seats on flights to the USA and Asia Following the introduction of the Winter Program, SAS will have launched a number of new year-round routes during 2016, including Copenhagen to Boston, Miami, Reykjavik, Vienna, Krakow and Faro, Oslo to Miami, and Stockholm to Los Angeles and Gdansk. The investment in the new cabin layout of SAS aircraft, as well as the overhaul of the entire SAS long haul fleet, has now been completed. This will see the number of seats available on flights to the USA and Asia this fall increase by 17 percent (130,000 seats). This means that, from the latter part of the year onwards, SAS will be able to offer long haul services from Scandinavia to Miami, Boston, Los Angeles, New York, Washington DC, Chicago, San Francisco, Beijing, Shanghai, Tokyo and Hong Kong.

Tele2 to build new IoT network for Greater Gothenburg

This new network will give Tele2 IoT, its customers and partners the chance to test, use and develop future business models and applications within the Internet of Things. The new network will be ideally suited for applications that require lower bandwidth and will have many advantages, including that IoT linked devices will be able to survive for several years on the same battery and that the hardware priced lower than the ordinary cellular devices. This makes the network perfect for measuring, monitoring or locating everything from products and buildings to people and animals. The construction of this new IoT network will occur in collaboration with Talkpool AB, an affiliate of the Nasdaq First North-listed TalkPool AG, an IoT ecosystem enabler and telecom networks specialist whose customers include network operators and industrial customers. Rami Avidan, Managing Director, Tele2 IoT, comments: “We are excited to be partnering with TalkPool on the deployment of this network. Our combined expertise in IoT will deliver real benefits to new and existing customers and provide a basis for the continued explosive growth in the Internet of Things. We are convinced that our customers will need a wide range of new technologies in the IoT field and at Tele2, we want to give them the opportunity to use as many of these new technologies as possible in ways that are both simple and flexible. This launch is a step in that direction.” The LoRa network that Tele2 IoT will rollout is one of the new Low Power Wide Area Network technologies developed specifically for the Internet of Things. LoRa supports wireless battery operated devices on the Internet of Things. The rollout of this network is part of Tele2’s focus on IoT and a further step in becoming an aggregator of different networking technologies that meet market demand. The new network will be up and running from third quarter 2016.

Jointly organised by Finnair and Finavia, the event gathered seven top names in European and Asian fashion design who presented their creations in this truly one-of-a-kind fashion show. Finnair’s wide-body aircraft sitting on the runway combined with brilliant fashion creations and the summer evening sunlight provided a truly unique setting for the event. Approximately a hundred international fashion journalists and influencers were among the 350 guests in attendance to enjoy the runway show. “We want to extend a warm thank you for a fantastic show to all guests who attended and all those who participated in organising this event,” says Katja Siberg, VP Marketing and Business Development at Finavia. “The designers’ creations sparkled on the runway and the atmosphere was made perfect by the beautiful weather. This was an extraordinary way to promote Helsinki Airport as a functional and smooth transfer airport between Europe and Asia.” “This spectacular event exceeded our expectations, which were very high,” says Johanna Jäkälä, Vice President Brand, Marketing & Customer Loyalty at Finnair. “We organised this fashion show to celebrate the connections between Europe and Asia and to showcase the work of the most interesting designers of the moment from these two continents.

Holmen invests in a wood treatment plant at Braviken Sawmill

Opened in 2011, Braviken Sawmill now manufactures sawn and planed wood products in spruce and pine. Over the years, the mill has expanded in size and gained a new warehouse for its finished products. Having started out only sawing spruce, in summer 2015 a strategic investment began with a view to broadening production to include pine joinery timber, as well as enabling the manufacture of decking and joists for outdoor purposes. “In autumn 2015, Braviken Sawmill began sawing both spruce and pine. We want to offer our customers a broader range and the wood treatment plant is a natural next step. The plant will be highly automated, with scope for further development in the future,” says Johan Padel, CEO of Holmen Timber. Making up a large part of what builders’ merchants sell in Sweden, treated wood is used for projects such as terraces, jetties and fencing. Pressure treatment gives the wood a longer life and minimises the risk of attack from wood-decaying fungi and insects. “Demand for treated wood products is growing and with Braviken’s central location in a densely populated region, we have excellent opportunities to reach out to builders’ merchants with our expanded product range. The wood treatment plant is scheduled to be up and running from winter 2016/2017, so we expect to be able to deliver decking for next summer’s construction and DIY projects,” relates Henrik Sjölund, President and CEO of Holmen. Holmen’s bio co-location in Braviken makes full use of the whole tree. Wood chips from the sawmill serve as a raw material in pulp production and by-products such as bark and wood shavings are used as biofuel to produce energy and district heating. The circle is closed when the surplus heat from the paper mill is used in the drying process at the sawmill.

Finnair’s Capital Markets Day 25 May 2016

Finnair Plc                            Stock Exchange Release                            25 May 2016 at 12:30 pm EET  Finnair will today host a Capital Markets Day for institutional investors and analysts. The event will be opened by Finnair’s CEO, Pekka Vauramo, who will present an update on Finnair’s strategy which was announced on 12 May 2016. The programme of the event is available on Finnair’s website at http://www.finnairgroup.com/investors/investors_2_1_2.html.  The overarching theme of the event is Finnair’s plan to speed up its growth. Growth can be accelerated in particular by retaining two A330 wide-body aircraft in operation beyond 2017, which were initially scheduled for decommissioning at the time. Finnair now expects its capacity to grow annually by 8–10% on average as measured by ASK during the strategy period extending to 2018. Furthermore, it now expects to double its Asian traffic from the 2010 level already in 2018, while the original target was set at 2020. The CMD will also shed light on how Finnair seeks to outperform average unit revenue developments in its key markets. Among other things, the company seeks to increase its ancillary revenues from last year’s level of a good 10 euros per passenger to 15 euros by 2018. At the same time, Finnair’s average aircraft size will grow, and the company will recruit about 900 persons during the strategy period, particularly in flight operations. Combined with continuous cost discipline, this will have a positive impact on the cost structure: the company expects its fleet costs, relative to ASK, to decrease by 8% during the strategy period while the average wage costs of its flying personnel should decrease by 9%. In addition, the event includes will give insight on recent developments, the outlook in Finnair’s key market of China, Finnair’s measures to ensure its operational excellence during the transitional growth period, as well as the company’s current investment plans. Finnair's Capital Markets Day will begin at 1:00 pm local time. The event can be viewed live at http://cloud.magneetto.com/finnair/2016_0525_CMD/angular, and a recording will be posted on the site by the following day. The presentation material in English will be available at the company's website at www.finnairgroup.com when the event begins.   FINNAIR PLCCommunications

Millbrook Group, the leading independent vehicle test, validation and engineering service provider, will once again be present at Automotive Testing Expo in Stuttgart, taking place on 31 May, 1 & 2 June. The Expo, which is the biggest annual showcase of the automotive testing industry, is the ideal event for both Millbrook and its subsidiary business, Test World, to highlight the latest important commercial developments within the organisation. Millbrook is currently enjoying a period of substantial investment in its world-leading facilities, ensuring that it remains the pre-eminent facility for all the testing requirements of the dynamic and ever-changing automotive sector. During 2015 Millbrook upgraded all its engine dynos and Sled facility, and made a further investment in Portable Emissions Measurement Systems (PEMS); 2016 will see a continuation of the investment in Powertrain facilities and so far has included new engine test cells, control room and fuel blending facilities. A crucial new development for 2016 will be the opening of a new, state of the art, 4WD chassis dyno test cell which will enable Millbrook to test the most technically advanced vehicles in the world. Beyond the significant Powertrain investment, the crash test facilities of Millbrook’s Safety department will benefit from a new roll over testing capability that follows the Servo Sled introduced in 2015. Vehicle testing facilities will also be upgraded with the construction of a new, very large climatic test chamber, which will accommodate almost any wheeled vehicle and replicate the full range of extreme climate conditions.   Millbrook is investing in its winter test facility in Finnish Lapland, Test World.

Test World is now building significant new outdoor tracks specially for testing vehicles. These will include a high speed circuit, handling track and vehicle dynamics platform. Being land-based and very far North, they will provide a much longer season than the lake-based tracks in other locations. Combined with new direct flights from Frankfurt to Ivalo this coming winter, excellent winter testing is now more accessible than ever before. Alex Burns, CEO of Millbrook says: “The investment in our facilities continues unabated.

Contemplated private placement

Axactor AB (the "Company") has retained Carnegie and DNB Markets (the "Managers") to advise on and effect a private placement of new shares directed towards Norwegian and international investors after the close of Oslo Stock Exchange today (the "Private Placement").  In the Private Placement, the Company is offering between 171 and 220 million new shares, representing between 24% and 31% of the currently outstanding capital of the Company not taking into account the additional shares pending issuance to the sellers of IKAS. The subscription price in the Private Placement will be determined through an accelerated bookbuilding process. The minimum subscription in the Private Placement has been set to the number of new shares that equals an aggregate subscription price of at least the NOK equivalent of EUR 100,000.  The Company has received significant pre-commitments from existing shareholders, as well as new institutional investors to subscribe for shares in the Private Placement. The Company is well advanced in negotiations regarding acquisitions of multiple sizable debt portfolios in Spain, which may be concluded over the shorter term and require capital. In addition, the Company is actively considering strong platforms to acquire in the Italian and German markets which are believed to represent opportunities for further growth of the Axactor brand. In order to be in the best possible position to secure a successful outcome of the ongoing acquisition processes, the Company is raising new capital. In addition to raising new equity, a large Nordic bank with deep knowledge and extensive experience from the credit management industry is committed to make available EUR 25 million in additional financing under the current loan facility that the company has in place with DNB. The funds are expected to be made available after the documentation process which normally takes 2-3 weeks. The net proceeds from the Private Placement will thus be used for acquisitions of non-performing loan portfolios and collection platforms, as well as for general corporate purposes. The bookbuilding period for the Private Placement opens today at 16:30 CET and closes 26 May 2016 at 08:00 CET. The Company may, however, at any time resolve to close or extend the bookbuilding period at its sole discretion and on short notice. The Company will announce the final number of shares placed and the final subscription price in the Private Placement in a stock exchange announcement expected to be published before opening of trading on the Oslo Stock Exchange tomorrow, 26 May 2016. The new shares to be issued in connection with the Private Placement will be issued based on the board authorisation granted by the Company's extraordinary general meeting on 23 December 2015. The waiver of the preferential rights inherent in a private placement is considered necessary in the interest of time and successful completion.  Notification of allotment and payment instructions will be sent to the applicants by the Managers on or about 26 May 2016, subject to any shortenings or extensions of the book building period. In order to provide for prompt registration of the share capital increase, the Company and the Managers expect to enter into an agreement related to pre-funding of the payment for the Offer Shares allocated in the Private Placement, such agreement regulating inter alia certain rights and obligations of the Company and the Managers related to the pre-funding. Payment for the allocated new shares is expected to take place on or about 3 June 2016 with delivery on or about 6 June 2016, subject to approval of a listing prospectus by the Swedish Financial Supervisory Authority which is expected on or about 2 June 2016. The share issuance will be carried out as a private placement in order to complete a transaction and without the significant discount typically seen in rights issues, and also for the Company to be able to complete a transaction in today's market conditions. As a consequence of the private placement structure, the shareholders' preferential rights will be deviated from. The Board of Directors will consider to carry out a subsequent offering directed towards shareholders in the Company as of close of trading today, 25 May 2016 (and as registered in the VPS on 27 May 2016) who were not allocated shares in the Private Placement, and who are not resident in a jurisdiction where such offering would be unlawful, or would (in jurisdictions other than Sweden or Norway) require any prospectus filing, registration or similar action (the "Subsequent Offering"). The subscription price in the Subsequent Offering will be equal to the subscription price in the Private Placement. The decision to propose the Subsequent Offering is, among other things, dependent upon the subscription price in the Private Placement and it cannot be guaranteed that the Board of Directors will propose the Subsequent Offering. Further, any Subsequent Offering will be dependent on the Annual General Meeting of the Company resolving on a general authorization to the Board of Directors to issue new shares in the Company.  For further information, please contact: Endre Rangnes  Chief Executive Officer Mail: endre.rangnes@axactor.com Tel: +46 8 402 28 00 Cell Phone: +47 48 22 11 11 Geir Johansen Chief Financial Officer Mail: geir.johansen@axactor.com Cell Phone: +47 477 10 451

Cirque du Soleil Celebrates Its Broadway Debut

The opening of Cirque du Soleil - PARAMOUR, the organization’s first show created specifically for Broadway at Lyric Theatre (213 West 42nd Street). Cirque du Soleil began in 1984 as a group of 20 street performers and has grown to be one of the most acclaimed producers of live entertainment in the world with 4,000 employees. The organization’s 38 productions have been seen by over 160 million spectators worldwide, but never before has Cirque du Soleil had a show on Broadway. Tonight’s opening night performance will be attended by such dignitaries as Ivanka Trump, Nate Ruess, Brooke Shields, Bethenny Frankel, Megan Hilty, Julianne (Jules) Wainstein, Gretchen Mol, Collin Donnell, Patti Murin, Clay Aiken, Julie Taymor, David Burtka, Guillermo Del Toro, Lesli Margherita, Christopher Hanke, Tony Richardson, Wesley Walker, Bruce Harper, Kate Reinders, Kenny Leon, Paul Tazewell, William & Tina Brown, David Korins, Sergio Trujillo, Neil Meron, Stephen Oremus, and Elvis Duran with a VIP celebration to follow at the McKittrick Hotel. Scott Zeiger, President and Managing director of Cirque du Soleil Theatrical said, “Bringing PARAMOUR to the Lyric Theatre has been an undertaking unlike anything Cirque du Soleil and Broadway has ever seen. We’re ready to celebrate the hard work of hundreds of people, artists and artisans, who’ve made this show possible. I couldn’t be more humbled by the dedication and hard work everyone has put into this show and I look forward to audiences loving PARAMOUR as much as we’ve loved creating it.” The process of creating the world of PARAMOUR began when Cirque du Soleil creative guide and creative director Jean-Francois Bouchard met with director Philippe Decouflé to discuss concepts, emotional arcs for the characters, and laying down the plans that would become Cirque du Soleil’s 39th production and first ever musical. They brought these initial concepts to life starting in November 2015, with the help of a team of collaborators from the worlds of Broadway, Cirque du Soleil, and dance. The production features at least 15 different circus arts disciplines, many of which have never appeared on Broadway. The disciplines cover aerial strap artists, banquine, Chinese pole, contortion, cyr wheel, hand to hand, hand to trapeze, juggling, lyra, Russian bar, Spanish web, teeterboard, tumbling, trampoline, and trapeze. The show’s hand-to-trapeze number, created by Shana Carroll, the Associate creative director and acrobatic designer & choreographer for PARAMOUR, is a thrilling mixture of two acrobatic disciplines that has never been performed previously and has become one of the most talked about moments in the show. For rehearsals, the cast and creative team commuted daily to Grumman Studios in Bethpage, Long Island. Grumman, normally used for film and television projects, was the only facility in the tri-state area large enough to accommodate the show's large acrobatic footprint. Since the start of previews on April 16, PARAMOUR has done remarkable business grossing over $1 million dollars for each full week of previews, a feat that is especially noteworthy given the show only did six performances each full week, compared to the traditional Broadway weekly schedule of eight performances. The show has also had remarkable response from Cirque du Soleil and Broadway fans alike, receiving standing ovations nightly and audiences are gathering at the stage door to collect autographs from the cast. PARAMOUR has become one of the most talked about attractions to open in New York this summer. It has been featured on NBC’s “Today,” ABC’s “Nightline,” CBS News, Reuters TV, a multiple story on WNYC Radio, the cover of the New York Times’ Arts & Leisure section, Associated Press, Wall Street Journal, Time Out New York, Newsday, New York Post, The Record, Crain’s New York Business, Out Magazine, Refinery 29, as well as every major theatrical and dance outlet. PARAMOUR, a Cirque du Soleil musical, is a landmark production for Cirque du Soleil, blending the best of Broadway with Cirque du Soleil’s signature style. The show has many of the elements beloved on Broadway: a timeless love story, live musicians, and professional actors in lead roles; but with the Cirque du Soleil aesthetic is integrated throughout the show:  visionary production design on a grand scale, world class entertainment, and acrobatic feats that defy the imagination. PARAMOUR features Jeremy Kushnier as A.J., the director; Ruby Lewis as Indigo, the starlet; and Ryan Vona as Joey, the composer. The cast also include Bret Shuford, Sarah Meahl, Kat Cunning,Tom Ammirati, Chelsey Arce, Andrew Atherton, Kevin Atherton, Lee Brearley, Yanelis Brooks, Samuel William Charlton, Martin Charrat, Nate Cooper, Myriam Deraiche, Kyle Driggs, Jeremias Faganel, Amber Brooke Fulljames, Steven Trumon Gray, Tomasz Jadach, Rafal Kaszubowski, Justin Keats, Reed Kelly, Denis Kibenko, Joe McAdam, Raven McRae, Amber J. Merrick, Sheridan Mouawad, Amber Pickens, Justin Prescott, Fletcher Blair Sanchez, Matthieu Sennacherib, Blakely Slaybaugh, Sam Softich, Amiel Soicher, Amber van Wijk, Bruce Weber, Tomasz Wilkosz, Zhengqi Xia (Da Qi). Under the artistic guidance of Jean-François Bouchard (creative guide and creative director), PARAMOUR is directed by French stage director and choreographer Philippe Decouflé. Along with Decouflé, the creative team includes West Hyler (associate creative director and scene director),Shana Carroll (associate creative director and acrobatic designer & choreographer), Pascale Henrot (associate creative director), Bob & Bill (composers), Andreas Carlsson (lyricist and co-composer), Jean Rabasse (set designer), Philippe Guillotel (costume designer), Daphné Mauger (choreographer), Verity Studios (flying machine design & choreography), Patrice Besombes (lighting designer), Olivier Simola & Christophe Waksmann (projection designers), John Shivers (sound designer), Boris Verkhovsky (acrobatic performance designer), Pierre Masse (rigging and acrobatic equipment designer), Nathalie Gagné (makeup designer), Anne‐Séguin Poirier (props designer), Josh Marquette (hair design), Cirque du Soleil (casting – Montreal), Telsey + Co (casting – New York), Seth Stachowski  (music director and band leader), and Jayna Neagle (executive producer).

Third installation of Elekta’s high-field MR-guided linear accelerator underway at University Medical Centre Utrecht

STOCKHOLM, May 26, 2016 – Elekta (EKTA-B.ST) and Royal Philips (NYSE:PHG, AEX:PHIA) today announced the installation of a third high-field (1.5 Tesla) MR-guided linear accelerator (MR-linac) system at University Medical Centre (UMC) Utrecht. The Elekta MR-linac is designed to capture high-quality images of tumors and surrounding tissue, allowing physicians to rapidly assess and respond by modifying the radiation treatment, a responsive intervention approach.  “UMC Utrecht has been a leading proponent of the power of MR-linac technology to transform radiotherapy, and we are excited to announce expanded capabilities through installation of a third system,” said Bas Raaymakers, PhD, Professor of experimental clinical physics in the Department of Radiotherapy at UMC Utrecht. “The ability to visualize radiation therapy during treatment and to adapt treatment in real time based on detailed MR images would allow us to treat cancer with unprecedented levels of precision and accuracy, while improving efficacy and reducing side effects. Just as surgeons require a clear view of the surgical field, and often require sophisticated imaging equipment, radiation oncologists need a 21st century approach to visualize and adapt the radiotherapy field to achieve optimum outcomes for patients.” UMC Utrecht is the founding member of Elekta’s MR-linac consortium, established in 2012 by Elekta and technology partner Philips. The consortium partners are committed to demonstrating that combining high-field MR imaging with image guided radiotherapy will elevate the standard of care for the most prominent cancers that account for more than half of cancer mortality worldwide as well as less prevalent cancers that are currently not well controlled. “We are extremely pleased with the rapid progress made to date in installing high-field MR-linac systems worldwide,” said Tomas Puusepp, President and CEO of Elekta. “UMC Utrecht is a leading global oncology center and has been instrumental in making this leading-edge technology platform a reality. We are grateful to all of our MR-linac consortium collaborators for their efforts to improve the current paradigm of image guided radiotherapy and commitment to addressing unmet clinical needs.” “After the significant technology hurdles that the teams have successfully overcome in order to combine advanced high-field digital magnetic resonance imaging with a state-of-the-art linear accelerator, and then validate and test the system, we are now about to enter the next phase of our important journey,” said Rob Cascella, CEO Diagnosis and Treatment at Philips. “I am convinced that the combined technology and clinical expertise of Philips, Elekta, UMC Utrecht and the other consortium partners will enable us to demonstrate the tremendous potential of MR-guided radiation therapy in clinical oncology.”  In 2009 UMC Utrecht showed the first ‘proof of principle’ testing with an experimental MR-linac system. In 2014 the UMC Utrecht installed a high-field MR-linac and has since been conducting functional testing in a non-clinical capacity. The new system will be used for further non-clinical studies, but it may also be ultimately used for clinical treatments. About MR-linacElekta’s MR-linac integrates a state-of-the-art radiotherapy system and a high-field MRI scanner with sophisticated software that allows a physician to clearly see the patient’s anatomy in real time. The MR-linac is designed to improve targeting of tumor tissue while reducing exposure of normal tissue to radiation beams. It will allow physicians to precisely locate a tumor, as well as lock onto it during delivery, even when tumor tissue is moving during treatment or changes shape, location or size between treatment sessions.   Elekta’s MR-linac is a work in progress and not available for sale or distribution.  # # # For further information, please contact:Gert van Santen, Group Vice President Corporate Communications, Elekta ABTel: +31 653 561 242, e-mail: gert.vansanten@elekta.comTime zone: CET: Central European Time Tobias Bülow, Director Financial Communication, Elekta ABTel: +46 722 215 017, e-mail: tobias.bulow@elekta.com Time zone: CET: Central European Time Steve Klink, Philips Group CommunicationsTel: +31 610 888 824, e-mail: steve.klink@philips.comTime zone: CET: Central European Time The above information is such that Elekta AB (publ) shall make public in accordance with the Securities Market Act and/or the Financial Instruments Trading Act.

Experiences, fun and inspiration in Fazer’s new Visitor Centre

Next September will mark 125 years since Karl Fazer opened his French-Russian café on Helsinki’s Kluuvikatu. The opening of Fazer’s new visitor centre will be the main event during the anniversary year. For Fazer, it is important to have an active dialogue with consumers. The new visitor centre in Vaarala, Vantaa will open for the public in October. It will give visitors an even more comprehensive and inspiring exhibition experience and Fazer a chance to engage in continuous, direct interaction with consumers and get feedback and development ideas. “The idea of the visitor centre is to create an inspiring, educational and unforgettable brand experience for Fazer’s visitors”, says Ulrika Romantschuk, SVP, Communications & Branding, Fazer Group. “It will have a unique exhibition area, shop and Fazer Café. The exhibition will be fantastic with, for instance, a raw material garden, a candy forest and a bunny sculpture the size of a small car, made of thousands of Mignon eggs. Our own guides will lead visitors through inspiring tours where they can experience the exhibition”, she continues. New possibilities for visits and events The new visitor centre can accommodate both individual visitors and groups. Individual visitors can buy a ticket and join one of the guided tours – or just drop in for a cup of coffee in the café or visit the shop, without entering the exhibition at all. Pre-booked tours will be available for groups. The centre will also offer meeting services and different kinds of events from cooking and bakery classes to children’s birthday parties and family gatherings. “This opens new possibilities for inspiring meetings and events. Imagine a team building event that starts with a tour at the exhibition, continues with internal meeting programme and culminates in enjoying a meal created together in a cooking school – everything in Fazer’s state-of-the-art premises”, says Anu Kokko, Director, Fazer Visitor Centre. Finnish forces Fazer’s new visitor centre is an investment in Finnish design and work. The centre was designed by the architect firm K2S, known for having designed the “Chapel of Silence” in Kamppi, Helsinki. The Finnish construction company SRV performs the construction work and Ateljé Sotamaa designs the visitor experience. “New members of the Fazer Visitor Centre team are being recruited at the moment”, says Anu Kokko. “We are all very excited about our new working environment, with all the possibilities it offers. Our stakeholders and the public have shown great interest in the new centre. Along with the opening of the pre-booking option at www.visitfazer.com, we have started to receive reservations and are really looking forward to the opening on 1 October 2016!” Additional information: Anu Kokko, Director, Fazer Visitor Centre, tel. +358405042746Web site http://www.visitfazer.com/@FazerSuomi #VisitFazerPrintable images: www.fazergroup.com/pictures ,Media/Press – Visitor Centre Emails are in the form firstname.lastname@fazer.com Fazer Group  Fazer is an international family-owned company offering quality bakery, confectionery, biscuit and grain products as well as food and café services.

Dragon Mining terminates the agreement with Endomines

Endomines has been informed that Dragon terminates the existing agreement on processing flotation concentrate from Pampalo at the Dragon Mining Svartliden leaching plant. According to Dragon Mining the Svartliden Operations has experienced elevated levels of copper in the discharge water. The copper levels are low but still at a level that the water must be cleaned in order to apply with the Svartliden Environmental Permit. The cost of cleaning the water is deemed to be significant by Dragon Mining management. Endomines will immediately commence discussions with other customers for the flotation concentrate. “The elevated levels of copper in our concentrate may partly be related to mining from the new mineralizations. The decision made by Dragon Mining is ill-timed as we have lately been processing ore from relatively high-grade areas in our processing plant. We presume, however, that Dragon Mining will comply with all termination clauses in our Agreement, to allow us adequate time to reach an agreement with other customers” comments Markus Ekberg, CEO of Endomines.   For further information please contact:Markus Ekberg, CEO of Endomines AB, phone +358-40-706 48 50 or visit www.endomines.com   Endomines AB discloses the information provided herein pursuant to the Swedish Securities Markets Act and/or the Swedish Financial Instruments Trading Act.

AXA - Completed private placement

Oslo May 26. 2016 - Reference is made to the stock exchange release from Axactor AB ("AXA" or the "Company") published yesterday regarding the contemplated private placement of between 171 and 220 million new shares in the Company. The Company announces today that it has raised approximately NOK 375 million in gross proceeds through a private placement consisting of 220,400,000 new shares (the "New Shares") at a price of NOK 1.70 per share (the "Private Placement"). The Private Placement took place through an accelerated bookbuilding process after close of markets yesterday. The Private Placement, which was well oversubscribed, attracted strong interest from both existing shareholders as well as new high quality institutional investors. The net proceeds from the Private Placement will be used for acquisitions of non-performing loan portfolios and collection platforms, as well as for general corporate purposes. Notification of allotment and payment instructions will be sent to the applicants by the Managers on or about 26 May 2016. In order to provide for prompt registration of the share capital increase, the Company and the Managers expect to enter into an agreement related to pre-funding of the payment for the New Shares allocated in the Private Placement, such agreement regulating inter alia certain rights and obligations of the Company and the Managers related to the pre-funding. Payment for the allocated new shares is expected to take place on or about 3 June 2016 with delivery on or about 6 June 2016, subject to approval of a listing prospectus (the "Prospectus") by the Swedish Financial Supervisory Authority which is expected on or about 2 June 2016. The new shares to be issued in connection with the Private Placement will be issued based on the board authorisation granted by the Company's extraordinary general meeting on 23 December 2015. The waiver of the preferential rights inherent in a private placement is considered necessary in the interest of time and successful completion. The previously announced resolution to issue 49,033,589 shares to the previous shareholders of IKAS has been reversed pursuant to agreement with said shareholders, and these shares are now expected to be issued and delivered following approval of the Prospectus. The share issuance was carried out as a private placement in order to complete a transaction and without the significant discount typically seen in rights issues, and also for the Company to be able to complete a transaction in today's market conditions. As a consequence of the private placement structure, the shareholders' preferential rights will be deviated from. The price of NOK 1.70 per share in the Private Placement equals a discount to the close price of less than 4 per cent. Consequently, the Board of Directors has decided that it will not propose a subsequent offering. Carnegie and DNB Markets (the "Managers") acted as joint bookrunners in the Private Placement.

Carrier Transicold Xarios™ 500 units Cream of the Crop for Rodda’s

Cornish clotted cream producer Rodda’s has updated its fleet with four new 7.5-tonne Isuzu ‘Forward’ N75.190 trucks mounted with insulated bodies and Carrier Transicold (http://www.transicold.carrier.com/) Xarios™ 500 refrigeration units. Carrier Transicold, which operates in the UK as Carrier Transicold UK, is a part of UTC Climate, Controls & Security, a unit of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX). Key to securing the order from the family-run business was the proven performance of an existing Carrier Transicold-equipped vehicle that joined the company’s fleet last year. The four new trucks and their Xarios 500 systems join Rodda’s 18-strong refrigerated fleet, including a mix of 15 7.5-tonne Isuzu, Iveco, Mitsubishi Fuso and Volkswagen vehicles, plus three 18-tonne MAN rigid trucks.  The new vehicles will be used intensively six days a week, to help transport up to 220 million portions of clotted cream produced at Rodda’s creamery each year to hotels, restaurants and supermarket regional distribution centres throughout South West England. The four new arrivals are expected to remain in service for five years and cover 90,000 miles annually. Servicing and maintenance for Rodda’s refrigerated fleet is carried out by local network service partner Carrier Transicold Cornwall. “We purchased a truck mounted with a Carrier Transicold Supra™ 1050 unit and were so impressed with its performance that we’ve never looked back,” said Barry Wilkinson, transport logistics manager, Rodda’s. “Since then we’ve entrusted our refrigeration requirements to Carrier Transicold UK, and had no hesitation in giving the company 100 per cent of our latest order.” Capable of maintaining a set point of between -20 and +30 degrees Celsius in vehicles with box volumes from 8-40m3, the Carrier Transicold Xarios range is ideally suited to Rodda’s application. The units’ ultra slim evaporators increase the available load space, while the advanced electronic controller and brushless fans reduce the chance of vehicle downtime, helping to ensure high reliability and a long product lifetime. Founded in 1890 by Eliza Jane Rodda, Cornish clotted cream production has been at the heart of the Rodda family for more than 125 years. Dedicated to its Cornish heritage, Rodda’s sources all of its milk from within a 30-mile radius of its creamery in Redruth, Cornwall.

The Swedish Ship Götheborg is looking for new owners

“This is a tough decision that we’ve been forced to make,” says Lars G Malmer, Chairman of the owning Foundation. “We’ve done our utmost to find a solution that would enable the ship to continue sailing and to serve as the amazing platform for marketing Sweden and Gothenburg that it is.” The voyages following the return from China were made possible thanks to substantial support from the founders (AB SKF, AB Volvo, Stena AB, Business Region Göteborg, the Port of Gothenburg, the City of Gothenburg and Region Västra Götaland), which secured the basic financing to keep the ship in seaworthy condition. “But now this part of the ship’s life has come to an end. We would have preferred her to continue sailing, but can confirm that the financial conditions do not exist, so the Foundation will now try to find the best solution for the ship, and one part of this process is to see whether there are any interested parties with different conditions in Gothenburg, Sweden or somewhere else, who are prepared to commit themselves to taking over the ship, thus making it possible to continue sailing”, continues Malmer. On its expeditions around the world, the Swedish Ship Götheborg has served as a successful platform to show off Swedish business, culture and society. Furthermore, since 2008 around 3,000 deckhands, approximately 40 per cent of them female, from 45 countries have worked on board. This has enabled them to learn to live and work together, help and support one another and sail a unique ship. At the 93 port calls made in 23 countries during the ten years that the ship has been sailing, around one million visitors have come aboard and learned about the ship’s history. On its return home to Gothenburg after the trip to China, the ship was met by King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia, together with the President of China Hu Jintao, who had come to Gothenburg to be there for the ship’s arrival. There were also hundreds of thousands of spectators lining the shore to welcome the ship home. The construction of the Götheborg, which took ten years, would not have been possible without the generous donations by numerous private individuals and companies, as well as a great deal of unpaid work carried out by thousands of volunteers. The ship was built to sail to China, which generated a very high level of interest from the People’s Republic of China and its leadership. Even before the voyage to China, the shipyard at Hisingen where the ship was being built was visited by several ministers from the Chinese government. When the ship visited the various countries, heads of state and members of royal families often came on board the Götheborg. There has always been a great deal of interest in the ship. The Götheborg often served as the main attraction at various maritime events around the world, attracting thousands of visitors. The Swedish Ship Götheborg was built using old construction methods and in materials used when the original ship was built in the 18th century. Hand-forged nails, hand-made blocks and hand-woven rigging. One thousand oak logs and fifty kilometres of pine were used to produce a 58.5 metre long, 11 metre wide East Indiaman. As there were no drawings surviving from 1738, when the original was built, the construction process made tremendous demands on ingenuity, craftsmanship and determined research. The rigging alone took 100,000 hours to produce. She is also fully equipped with modern technology to meet current safety standards. The Götheborg is a ship that is unique in the world and is a unique symbol reflecting Gothenburg’s history as a maritime and trading city, which laid the foundations for the City of Gothenburg as it is now. At the same time, knowledge of the Götheborg, life on board, the art of shipbuilding, navigation and in particular sailing of that age has been passed on, both in Sweden and in all of the countries visited by the ship.

Summary of the Annual General Meeting in Axactor AB (publ) conducted today

The Annual General Meeting in Axactor AB (publ) (“Axactor” or the “Company”) was held in Stockholm today (the “AGM”). The agenda contained the customary items plus a request to approve an authorization for the Board of Directors to decide on new share issues. Also the agenda encompassed a change of the Articles of Association by abolishing the previously existing A-shares and by proposing to apply a new accounting currency in Axactor as from 2017. The AGM first adopted the income statements and balance sheets of the parent company and of the group. The Board’s proposal not to distribute any dividends was approved. The Board of Directors and management were discharged from liability. The current Board of Directors composed of three ordinary members proposed for re-election was re-appointed. The Board directors elected are Einar J. Greve (Chairman) and Gunnar Hvammen as well as Per Dalemo (ordinary board members). It was resolved that the remuneration to the board directors would remain unchanged as compared to the EGM decision in December 2015, namely the Chairman would be paid 900,000 SEK on an annual basis and each of the other two Board directors would receive 450,000 SEK. PricewaterhouseCoopers AB with responsible main auditor Johan Palmgren were re-elected as auditors by the Annual General Meeting.  The shareholders approved to remunerate the auditors on current account for reasonable and approved invoices. The Annual General Meeting further approved of appointing a new Nomination Committee. The Nomination Committee will consist of the following two members: Gunnar Hvammen as Chairman of the Committee and Magnus Tvenge.  The term of the Committee will be until a new Nomination Committee gets appointed. Next, a new mandate for the Board of Directors to issue shares or other financial instruments was approved. The new mandate is valid to the time of the AGM in 2017 and encompasses the possibility to issue up to 400 million new shares with or without observing the existing shareholders’ preferential rights. This mandate entails a maximum dilution of some 34% calculated in relation to the new number of outstanding shares post the ongoing issue in kind to the sellers of IKAS company and post full exercise of outstanding Employee Stock Options, but before today’s completed private placement of 220,400,000 shares. This new mandate replaces the old mandate approved at the December 2015 Extraordinary General Meeting of shareholders. Further, the present shareholders approved of the proposal to amend the articles of association so that the Company abolishes the A-shares provision. The A-shares were introduced temporarily in autumn 2015 in order to enable reasonably timely settlement of the significant private placement then conducted. Also the Annual General Meeting approved to let the Euro replace the SEK as the accounting currency of Company as from the following financial year 2017. All approvals were granted with sufficient majority of votes. At the AGM 39,324,314 shares were present directly or through proxies, corresponding to 6.0% of the Company's 656,214,360 outstanding ordinary shares at the record date, which was May 20, 2016.

Paradox Interactive listing attracts Tencent as fan and long-term investor

(May 27, Stockholm) Tencent Holdings Limited, which operates China’s largest social network and online games platform, has subscribed to and been allocated shares in the initial public offering of Paradox Interactive (”Paradox”) on Nasdaq First North Premier. Tencent has been allocated 5.28 million shares at the offering price of SEK 33 per share, and hold 5% equity interest in Paradox Interactive post transaction.  Fredrik Wester and Spiltan will continue to be key shareholders in Paradox with 33.3 % and 30.5 % shareholdings, respectively. A long-time fan of Paradox games, Tencent will work to explore opportunities with Paradox to build up the emerging grand strategy, simulation, and story-driven RPG fan bases in China.  Tencent has a history of supporting new game genres in China, where it operates globally renowned titles such as League of Legends, Cross-Fire, Dungeon & Fighter, Call of Duty Online, FIFA Online and Need for Speed, as well as many popular locally-developed games.  Tencent also has a track record of building strong partnership with game industry leaders, such as Activision Blizzard, Riot Games, CJ Netmarble and Miniclip, via equity investment and support in distribution and operations. Fredrik Wester, CEO and principal owner of Paradox, said:“Tencent approached us as big fans of our grand strategy games and with a genuine interest in Paradox and our onward journey.  It has always been very important for us that any partners we bring on board can contribute in a unique and attractive way to Paradox and have a long term commitment to the company.  Tencent certainly fit the bill with their network and know-how of a market where we are not yet present and we believe Tencent will be able to add great value to Paradox in near and long term.” Steven Ma, Head of Games Publishing at Tencent, said,“As China’s game market further develops, players will advance to more sophisticated and complex genres such as grand strategy and simulation games.  I have spent many hours in Hearts of Iron 2, and believe our rich social resources can help Paradox build up loyal fan bases in China.” James Mitchell, Chief Strategy Officer at Tencent, added“Paradox has an inspiring record of focusing on doing a few things extremely well, creating games that demand much from its players but deliver more in return, and faithfully extending its franchises via high quality updates and expansion packs.  As a player of Europa Universalis games for 10 years and of Stellaris since launch, we look forward to teaming up with thoughtful and strategic gamers in China to discover Paradox’s deep, emergent titles, and enabling them to colonize the New World, as well as the outermost Galactic confederations.”

This proposal is divided into four items: A. Terms of the Share Savings Programme 2016 (LTIP 2016). B. Hedge for LTIP 2016 in the form of new class C shares. C. If item B is not approved, the Board proposes that hedge of LTIP 2016 shall take place via equity swap agreement with a third party. D. Other matters related to LTIP 2016 A. Share Savings Programme 2016 (LTIP 2016) A.1      Introduction At the Annual General Meeting 2015 it was resolved to launch a long term incentive programme 2015 (LTIP 2015) for key individuals within the Eltel Group. The Board is proposing to continue the performance-based, long-term share programme that was introduced last year, in order to increase and strengthen the potential for recruiting, retaining and rewarding key individuals. The board therefore proposes that the Extraordinary General Meeting approves the implementation of a share savings program 2016 (the “LTIP 2016”) for key individuals within the Eltel Group. The aim is also to use LTIP 2016 to create an individual long-term ownership of Eltel shares among the participants. Participants will, after a qualifying period and assuming an investment of their own in Eltel ordinary shares, receive allotments of additional Eltel ordinary shares without consideration. The number of allotted shares will depend on the number of Eltel ordinary shares they have purchased themselves and on the fulfilment of certain performance targets. The term of LTIP 2016 is three years.   A.2      Basic features of LTIP 2016 The LTIP 2016 will be directed towards key individuals in the Eltel Group based in Sweden and other countries. Participation in the LTIP 2016 assumes that the participant acquires and locks Eltel ordinary shares into LTIP 2016 (“Savings Shares”). For each acquired Savings Share, the participant shall be entitled, after a certain qualification period (defined below) and provided continued employment during the entire period, to receive an allotment of one Eltel matching/retention share (“Matching Share”). Dependent on the fulfilment of certain performance targets linked to Eltel’s earnings per share for the financial year 2018, the participant may also be entitled, to receive allotment of additional Eltel shares (”Performance Shares”). The participant shall not pay any consideration for the allotted Matching Shares and Performance Shares. Matching Shares and Performance Shares are Eltel ordinary shares. A.3      Participation in LTIP 2016 During the second quarter 2016, the Board will decide on participation in LTIP 2016 and the assignment of participants to a certain category. LTIP 2016 is directed towards three categories of participants: +---------------------+------------------+---------------+------------------+|Category |Maximum of Savings|Matching Shares|Performance Shares|| |Shares (% of base |per Savings |per Savings share || |salary) |share | |+---------------------+------------------+---------------+------------------+|A) CEO |20% |1.0x |4.0x |+---------------------+------------------+---------------+------------------+|B) Group Management |15% |1.0x |3.0x ||Team (GMT),  maximum | | | ||10 | | | ||persons | | | |+---------------------+------------------+---------------+------------------+|C) Individuals |10% |1.0x |2.0x ||reporting directly to| | | ||the GMT | | | ||and other key | | | ||employees, a maximum | | | ||of 74 | | | ||persons | | | |+---------------------+------------------+---------------+------------------+ The maximum number of Savings Shares for each participant shall be based on an investment in Eltel shares with an amount corresponding to a certain portion of the concerned participant’s base salary level for the current year. In order to be eligible to participate in LTIP 2016, the participant must make a minimum investment of an amount equal to 25% of the applicable maximum level for Savings Shares investment. Any resolution on participation or implementation of LTIP 2016 shall be conditional on that it, in the Board’s judgement, can be offered with reasonable administrative costs and financial effects. A.4      Allotment of Matching Shares and Performance Shares Allotment of Matching Shares and Performance Shares within LTIP 2016 will be made during a limited period of time following presentation of the first quarterly statement 2019. The period up to this date is referred to as the qualification period (vesting period). A condition for the participant to receive allotment of Matching Shares and Performance Shares is that the participant remains an employee of the Eltel group during the full qualification period up until allotment and that the participant, during this period, has kept all Savings Shares. Allotment of Performance Shares requires that the EPS performance targets are fulfilled. The performance targets are Eltel’s earnings per share for the financial year 2018. Partial fulfilment of the performance targets will result in partial allotment of Performance Shares. Performance under a certain level will result in no allotment. Prior to the allotment of Matching Shares and Performance Shares, the Board shall assess whether the allotment is reasonable in relation to the Company’s financial results, position and performance, as well as other factors. In this regard, the participant’s maximum gross profit per Performance Share shall be limited to three times the share price of the Eltel share at the time of the commencement of the qualification period, and therefore the number of Matching Shares and/or Performance Shares allotted to the participant may be reduced proportionally in order to achieve such limitation. A.5      Implementation and administration etc. The Board, with the assistance of the remuneration committee, shall in accordance with the resolutions by Extraordinary General Meeting set forth herein be responsible for the detailed design and implementation of LTIP 2016. The Board may also decide on the implementation of an alternative cash based incentive for participants in countries where the acquisition of Savings Shares or allotment of Matching and/or Performance Shares is not appropriate, as well as if otherwise considered appropriate. Such alternative incentive shall to the extent practically possible be designed to correspond to the terms of LTIP 2016. The intention is that the Board shall launch LTIP 2016 before the end of the second quarter of 2016. B. Hedge for LTIP 2016 in the form of new Class C Shares B.1      Introduction The Board proposes that the implementation of LTIP 2016 shall be made in a cost-effective and flexible manner, and that the undertakings of the Company for delivery and costs referable to Matching and Performance Shares primarily shall be hedged by a directed issue of convertible and redeemable Class C Shares. These shares can be repurchased and converted into ordinary shares and transferred in accordance with the following. B.2      Authorization for the Board to resolve on a directed issue of class C shares The Board shall be authorized to resolve on a directed issue of Class C Shares on the following terms and conditions: a) The maximum number of Class C Shares to be issued is 622,000 b) With a deviation from the shareholders’ preferential rights, the new shares may only be subscribed for by one external party after arrangement in advance with the Board. c) The amount to be paid for each new share (the subscription price) shall equal the share’s quota value at the time of subscription. d) The authorization may be exercised on one or several occasions until the Extraordinary General Meeting 2017. e) The new class C shares shall be subject to Chapter 4, Section 6 of the Swedish Companies Act (conversion restriction) and Chapter 20, Section 31 of the Swedish Companies Act (redemption restriction). The purpose of the authorisation is to hedge the undertakings of the Company according to LTIP 2016 and other incentive programmes resolved by Eltel’s General Meeting and, in terms of liquidity, to hedge payments of social security contributions related to Matching and Performance Shares. B.3      Authorization for the Board to repurchase issued class C shares The Board shall be authorized to repurchase class C shares on the following terms and conditions: a) Repurchase can only take place by way of an acquisition offer directed to all holders of class C shares in the Company. b) The maximum number of Class C shares to be repurchased shall amount to 622,000. c) Repurchase shall be made at a cash price per share of minimum 100 and maximum 110 per cent of the quota value applicable to the repurchased class C shares at the time of repurchase. d) The Board shall have the right to resolve on other terms and conditions for the repurchase. e) Repurchase may also be made of a so-called interim share regarding a class C share, by Euroclear Sweden AB designated as a Paid Subscribed Share (Sw. Betald Tecknad Aktie, BTA). f) The authorization may be exercised on one or several occasions until the Annual General Meeting 2017. The purpose of the authorization is to hedge the undertakings of the Company according to LTIP 2016 and other incentive programmes resolved by the general meeting of the Company and, in terms of liquidity, to hedge payments of social security contributions related to Matching and Performance Shares. B.4      Transfer of Eltel’s own ordinary shares in LTIP 2015 and LTIP 2016 Transfer of the Company’s own ordinary shares in LTIP 2015 and LTIP 2016 can be made on the following terms and conditions: a) A maximum number of 497,600 Eltel ordinary shares may be transferred free of charge to participants in LTIP 2016 and other incentive programmes resolved by Eltel’s General Meeting. b) A maximum number of 124,400 Eltel ordinary shares may be disposed at market price on the stock market in order to hedge the cash-flow related to the Company’s payments of social security contributions in relation to LTIP 2016 and other incentive programmes resolved by Eltel’s General Meeting. c) The terms for these transfers, the number of shares in each transaction and the timing for the transactions shall be as stipulated in the terms and conditions of LTIP 2016. d) The number of Eltel shares that may be transferred within the framework of LTIP 2016 may be subject to customary recalculations as a result of bonus issue, split, rights issue and/or similar events. e) The above resolution under item b) regarding disposal of shares in the stock market will be proposed to be repeated as a new annual decision by each Extraordinary General Meeting during the term of LTIP 2016 and other incentive programmes resolved by the general meeting of the Company. B.5      Reasons for the deviation from the shareholders’ preferential rights etc. The reason for deviation from the shareholders’ preferential rights is to implement the proposed LTIP 2016 as set out herein. In order to minimize costs for LTIP 2016, the subscription price shall equal the Class C Share’s quota value. Since the Board considers that the most cost-effective and flexible method of transferring Eltel shares under LTIP 2016 is to transfer own shares, the Board proposes that the transfer is hedged in this way in accordance with this item B. Should the necessary majority not be obtained for the item B proposal, the Board proposes that the transfer is hedged by entering into a share swap agreement with a third party in accordance with item C below. C.        Equity swap agreement with a third party The Board proposes that the Extraordinary General Meeting, should the necessary majority not be obtained for item B above, resolve to hedge the financial exposure of LTIP 2016, by the Company entering into a share swap agreement with a third party, whereby the third party in its own name shall acquire and transfer shares in the Company in LTIP 2016. The relevant number of shares shall correspond to the number of shares proposed under item B above. D.        Other matters in relation to LTIP 2016 D.1      Majority requirements etc. The resolution by the Extraordinary General Meeting regarding the implementation of LTIP 2016 according to item A above shall be conditional on the Extraordinary General Meeting resolving either in accordance with the Board’s proposal under item B above or in accordance with the Board’s proposal under item C above. The resolution according to item A above shall require a majority of more than half of the votes cast at the Extraordinary General Meeting. A valid resolution under item B above requires that shareholders representing not less than nine-tenths of the votes cast as well as the shares represented at the Extraordinary General Meeting approve the resolution. A valid resolution under item C above shall require a majority of more than half of the votes cast at the Extraordinary General Meeting. D.2      Estimated costs, expenses and financial effects of LTIP 2016 LTIP 2016 will be accounted for in accordance with “IFRS 2 – Share‐based payments”. IFRS 2 stipulates that the share awards should be expensed as personnel costs over the qualification period and will be accounted for directly against equity. Personnel costs in accordance with IFRS 2 do not affect the company’s cash flow. Social security contributions will be recognised as an expense in the income statement through regular provisions in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles. The amount of these regular provisions will be revalued in line with the trend in the value of the right to Matching/Performance Shares, and the contributions payable on the allotment of Matching/Performance Shares. Assuming a share price at the time of implementation of EUR 9.20 (SEK 85), and that the performance targets are achieved so that 75 percent or the maximum number of Performance Shares vest, including a share price increase of 12 percent during the vesting period, the annual cost for LTIP 2016, including social security costs, is estimated to approximately EUR 1.5 million before tax. The corresponding annual cost with full achievement of the performance targets is estimated to approximately EUR 1.8 million before tax.  LTIP 2016 will comprise maximum 497,600 shares in total which corresponds to approximately 0.8 percent of the total outstanding shares and votes in the Company. Aggregated with the 124,400 shares that may be transferred in order to cover the cash flow effects associated with social security contributions for LTIP 2016, this corresponds to approximately 1.0 percent of the total outstanding shares and votes in the Company. The above calculations are based on a decision on hedging in accordance with item B. To the extent that a share swap agreement in accordance with item C is entered into to hedge the obligations under LTIP 2016, any fluctuations in the value of the swap agreement during the life of LTIP 2016 will be recognized as an income or expense in the income statement. In the view of the Board, the positive effects expected to arise from LTIP 2016, outweigh the costs associated with LTIP 2016. D.3      The Board’s explanatory statement The Board wishes to increase the ability of Eltel to recruit and retain key employees. Moreover, an individual long-term ownership commitment among the participants in LTIP 2016 is expected to stimulate greater interest and motivation in the Company’s business operations, results and strategy. The Board believes that the implementation of LTIP 2016 will benefit Eltel and its shareholders. LTIP 2016 will provide a competitive and motivation-improving incentive for key individuals within the Group. LTIP 2016 has been designed to reward the participants for increased shareholder value by allotting shares, based on the fulfilment of conditions in respect of results and operations. Allotments shall also require a private investment by each respective participant through the acquisition of shares by them at market price. By linking the employees’ remuneration to an improvement in Eltel’s results and value, the long-term value growth of Eltel is rewarded. Based on these circumstances, the Board considers that the implementation of LTIP 2016 will have a positive effect on the Eltel Group’s continued development, and will thus be beneficial to the shareholders and Eltel. D.4      Summary of other share-related incentive programs At the Annual General Meeting 2015, the shareholders approved the Eltel Long Term Incentive Programme 2015 (LTIP 2015). The terms and conditions for the LTIP 2015 are similar to the terms and conditions for the proposed LTIP 2016. The subscription period for the programme took place in August 2015. In total, 97% of the invited participants (70 persons) decided to participate in LTIP 2015. The programme comprises a maximum of 318,610 shares in total, corresponding to approximately 0.5% of the total number of outstanding shares and votes in the Company. The Savings Shares for the LTIP 2015 were acquired in a structured way in ordinary trading on the stock market on 17 September 2015. The average purchase price for the 91,953 shares acquired by the participants was SEK 94.94. __________ The Board, or a person appointed by the Board, shall be authorised to make any minor adjustments to the above resolutions that may be necessary in connection with the registration with the Swedish Companies Registration Office and Euroclear Sweden AB respectively.   Number of shares and votes As of 26 May 2016, Eltel has a total of 62,624,238 ordinary shares, representing one vote each.

Visitor numbers up 24% at Accountex 2016

Accountex – the flagship event in the UK’s accounting calendar – has reported a significant 24% increase in unique visitors for 2016.  The two-day event, which took place at London ExCeL on 11-12 May, featured 200 exhibitors and enjoyed a total attendance of 6,597 (not including revisits). Visitors included accountants, bookkeepers, finance directors, MDs, accounts managers, tax professionals, and senior IT decision-makers from organisations as diverse as the BBC, American Express, L'Oreal, AstraZenenca, British Airways, Barclays, Post Office, Christie’s, B&Q, AECOM, Moody’s, Kuoni Group, Citizens Advice, Transport for London, Serious Fraud Office, Workplace Pensions Direct, Guardian Media Group, and the NHS. Many of the country’s top accountants from leading practices like PwC, Deloitte, KPMG, Grant Thornton, BDO, Baker Tilly, Smith & Williamson, Mazars, Moore Stephens, Saffery Champness, Haines Watts, Crowe Clark Whitehill, Begbies Traynor, Kingston Smith, Wilkins Kennedy, Menzies, Buzzacott, TaxAssist Accountants, and Francis Clark (who all feature in the top 25 of Accountancy Age’s Top 50+50 Survey[1] (http://#_ftn1)), were also in attendance. As were more than 2,000 smaller accountancy practices (including sole practitioners and firms with under 50 employees). It was this quality of attendees, the high level of engagement, and quantity of new business leads that impressed countless exhibitors – prompting over 40% of them to rebook for next year.  Looking ahead, the 2017 event will boast a 15% bigger exhibition floor to accommodate increasing demand for space. Whilst this was the 5th annual Accountex, it was the first to be hosted by its new owner Diversified Communications UK. “We really couldn’t have wished for a better event,” comments Diversified UK’s managing director Carsten Holm.  “Integrating established shows into a new company can be a huge challenge.  But on this occasion, with the support of The Prysm Group, its exhibitors and the UK’s most important accountancy associations, the integration of Accountex has been virtually seamless.  It’s been fun and a very positive development for the future of this essential industry event.” “The reaction to the show has been incredible,” says new event director Zoe Lacey-Cooper.  “This was Diversified’s first year taking the reigns over on Accountex from Prysm, and we are absolutely delighted that the show has been such a success, with attendance up to over 6,500. “The ‘buzz’ of business being done across the show floor was unmistakable!  Seminars were absolutely full-to-the-brim, the stands looked incredible, and exhibition teams were confident, proactive and always ready to greet visitors.  Accountex truly is the biggest and best platform for uniting this industry and this year there was a genuine sense of one community coming together to network, support, share, and learn from each other.  From visitors to exhibitors, from supporters to speakers, everybody gained real value from being involved. “Successful firms realise that they need to adapt in order to stay relevant and competitive, and Accountex helps to provide essential solutions and guidance, and inspires accountants to look at their businesses in new ways.  We see a lot of growth and development opportunities for the show next year, and we are looking forward to working more closely with all our partners, associations and exhibitors to make sure we continue to create an amazing, totally unmissable show for the accountancy profession,” she says. Inspiring show content With 15% of visitors attending across both days, one of the show’s key draws was its exceptional show content.  There were 187 CPD accredited seminars, panel sessions, and interactive workshops covering all the key developments and challenges affecting the industry, including everything from the development of new cloud-based solutions, to changes in reporting requirements, auto enrolment, pricing, pensions, attracting new clients, and the HRMC’s digital strategy.

For the second year running I have been blown away with the technological advances our industry is making, and the exciting new products that are available at reasonable cost.  Thanks to Accountex my practice is much leaner and profitable,” says Andy Martin, senior manager at Caton Fry & Co.

2nd Quarter Results

To view the PDF, please see the link below.  http://www.rns-pdf.londonstockexchange.com/rns/5860Z_-2016-5-27.pdf SECOND QUARTER 2016 EARNINGS RELEASE   ROYAL BANK OF CANADA REPORTS SECOND QUARTER 2016 RESULTS All amounts are in Canadian dollars and are based on financial statements prepared in compliance with International Accounting Standard 34 Interim Financial Reporting, unless otherwise noted. Our Q2 2016 Report to Shareholders and Supplementary Financial Information are available on our website at rbc.com/investorrelations. TORONTO, May 26, 2016-Royal Bank of Canada (RY on TSX and NYSE) today reported net income of $2,573 million for the second quarter ended April 30, 2016, up $71 million or 3% from a year ago. Net income was up $179 million or 7%, excluding a specified item(1) in the prior year as noted below. Results reflect strong earnings in Wealth Management, which benefited from the inclusion of City National Bank (City National), record earnings in Personal & Commercial Banking and higher earnings in Insurance. These factors were partially offset by lower results in Capital Markets and Investor & Treasury Services as compared to strong levels last year. Our results also include favourable foreign exchange translation and continuing benefits from our ongoing focus on efficiency management activities. Our total provision for credit losses (PCL) ratio of 0.36% is comprised of PCL on impaired loans ratio of 0.32% and PCL on loans not yet identified as impaired ratio of 0.04%. PCL on impaired loans ratio increased 7 basis points (bps) from the prior year primarily as a result of the sustained low oil price environment. Compared to last quarter, net income increased $126 million or 5%, mainly reflecting higher earnings in Wealth Management, Insurance, Capital Markets and Personal & Commercial Banking, partially offset by lower earnings in Investor & Treasury Services. This quarter, PCL increased by $50 million ($37 million after-tax) for loans not yet identified as impaired. PCL on impaired loans ratio of 0.32% was relatively flat from last quarter. Our Basel III Common Equity Tier 1 (CET1) ratio strengthened to 10.3%, up 40 bps from the prior quarter. "We delivered a solid quarter, with earnings of over $2.5 billion, reflecting underlying strength across our businesses. I'm very pleased with our performance in the first half of the year with earnings of over $5 billion, particularly in the context of a challenging operating environment," said Dave McKay, RBC President and CEO. "Underpinned by our culture and commitment to putting clients first, RBC continues to be well positioned going forward given the strength of our diversified business model, our prudent risk management and our ability to effectively manage costs." Q2 2016 YTD 2016 compared to YTD 2015 •     Net income of $5,020 million (upcompared 1% from $4,958 million) •     Diluted EPS of $3.25 (down $0.08 fromto Q2 $3.33) •     ROE of 15.8% (down 350 bps from 19.3%)2015•    Netincomeof$2,573million(up 3%from$2,502million)•    Dilutedearningspershare(EPS) of$1.66(down$0.02from$1.68)•    Returnoncommonequity(ROE)(2)of 16.2%(down310 bpsfrom19.3%)•    BaselIII CET1ratio of10.3%(up 30bps from10.0%) Excluding Excluding specified item(1) : YTD 2016 compared to YTD 2015 •    specified Net income of $5,020 million (up 4% from $4,850 million) •    item(1): Diluted EPS of $3.25 (down $0.01 from $3.26) •     ROE of 15.8%Q2 2016 (down 310 bps from 18.9%)comparedto Q22015•     Netincome of$2,573million(up 7%from$2,394million)•    DilutedEPS of$1.66 (up$0.05from$1.61)•     ROEof 16.2%(down 230bps from18.5%) The specified item from Q2 2015 is detailed on page 3 and relates to a gain of $108 million (before- and after-tax) from the wind-up of a U.S.-based subsidiary that resulted in the release of foreign currency translation adjustment that was previously booked in other components of equity. Q2 2016 Business Segment Performance  Personal & Commercial Banking net income was a record $1,297 million, up $97 million or 8% compared to last year. Canadian Banking net income was $1,241 million, up $50 million or 4% compared to last year, driven by solid volume growth of 6% across most businesses, the positive impact of one additional day in February, and fee-based revenue growth. These factors were partially offset by higher PCL and lower spreads. Caribbean & U.S. Banking net income was $56 million, up $47 million from last year, largely reflecting fee-based revenue growth and lower provisions in the Caribbean portfolio. In addition, the prior year included a loss of $23 million (before- and after-tax) related to sale of RBC Royal Bank (Suriname) N.V. (RBC Suriname). 1        Results and measures excluding the specified item are non-GAAP measures. For further information, including reconciliation, refer to the non-GAAP section on page 3 of this earnings release. 2        This measure does not have a standardized meaning under GAAP. For further information, refer to the Key performance and non-GAAP measures section of our Q2 2016 Report to Shareholders. Compared to last quarter, Personal & Commercial Banking net income was up $7 million or 1%. Canadian Banking net income was up $10 million or 1% compared to last quarter as lower staff costs and higher spreads were partially offset by the negative impact of seasonal factors including fewer days in the current quarter, and higher PCL. Caribbean & U.S. Banking net income was down $3 million. Wealth Management net income of $386 million was up $115 million or 42% from last year, reflecting the inclusion of our acquisition of City National, which contributed $66 million to net income; $108 million(1) excluding amortization of intangibles of $29 million after-tax and $13 million of after-tax integration costs. Results also reflect benefits from our efficiency management activities, lower PCL and lower restructuring costs related to our International Wealth Management business. These factors were partially offset by lower transaction volumes reflecting reduced client activity. Compared to last quarter, net income was up $83 million or 27%, largely reflecting benefits from our efficiency management activities and lower variable compensation driven by lower revenue. Higher earnings in City National driven by loan growth, lower acquisition and integration costs, and higher transaction volumes also contributed to the increase. These factors were partially offset by lower foreign exchange translation. Insurance net income of $177 million was up $54 million or 44% from last year, mainly due to the favourable impact of investment-related gains on our Canadian Life business, and lower net claims costs in both Canadian and International Insurance. Compared to last quarter, net income was up $46 million or 35%, reflecting a tax recovery and lower net claims costs in Canadian Insurance. Investor & Treasury Services net income of $139 million was down $20 million or 13% from last year, mainly driven by continued investment in technology initiatives and lower earnings from foreign exchange market execution reflecting a decrease in client activity. These factors were partially offset by higher earnings on growth in client deposits and the positive impact of foreign exchange translation. Compared to last quarter, net income was down $4 million or 3%, primarily due to lower funding and liquidity results. This factor was partially offset by higher custodial fees and higher earnings on client deposits. Capital Markets net income of $583 million was down $42 million or 7% from last year, primarily due to lower results in Global Markets and Corporate and Investment Banking driven by lower client activity, and higher PCL. These factors were partially offset by lower variable compensation, lower taxes and an increase due to foreign exchange translation. Compared to last quarter, net income was up $13 million or 2%, mainly due to growth in debt and equity origination and higher loan syndication activity. These factors were partially offset by higher litigation and related legal costs, lower foreign exchange translation and lower M&A activity. Corporate Support net loss was $9 million mainly due to the increase of $50 million ($37 million after-tax) in the allowance for credit losses for loans not yet identified as impaired, which was mostly offset by asset/liability management activities. Net income last year of $124 million largely reflected a gain of $108 million (before-and after-tax) from the wind-up of a U.S.-based subsidiary that resulted in the release of a cumulative translation adjustment (CTA) that was previously booked in other components of equity (OCE), as well as asset/liability management activities. In Q2 2015, the gain was identified as a specified item. Capital - As at April 30, 2016, Basel III CET1 ratio was 10.3%, up 40 bps compared to last quarter, largely reflecting strong internal capital generation and lower risk-weighted assets in our market risk portfolios. Credit Quality - Total PCL of $460 million was up $50 million or 12% from last quarter, reflecting an increase in provisions for loans not yet identified as impaired of $50 million ($37 million after-tax). Total PCL ratio was 0.36%, up 5 bps compared to last quarter. PCL on impaired loans of $410 million was flat from last quarter. PCL on impaired loans ratio of 0.32% was relatively flat, up 1 bp, from last quarter. Total gross impaired loans (GIL) of $3,703 million was up $583 million or 19% from last quarter largely due to an increase in impaired oil & gas loans reflecting our bottom-up analysis of the portfolio and considering external factors. The increase in GIL did not warrant a proportionate increase in the allowance given the seniority of our loans and collateral received. Total GIL ratio was 0.71%, up 12 bps compared to last quarter. 1        City National results excluding amortization of intangibles and acquisition and integration costs is a non-GAAP measure that provides readers with a better understanding of management's perspective on our performance. Non-GAAP measures Results and measures excluding •     A gain of $108 million (before- and after-tax) in Q2 2015 from the wind-up of a U.S.-based subsidiary that resulted in the release of CTA that was previously booked in OCE; and •     $29 million of after-tax amortization of intangibles and $13 million of after-tax integration costs in Q2 2016 related to our acquisition of City National are non-GAAP measures Given the nature and purpose of our management reporting framework, we use and report certain non-GAAP financial measures, which are not defined, do not have a standardized meaning under GAAP, and may not be comparable with similar information disclosed by other financial institutions. We believe that excluding this specified item from our results is more reflective of our ongoing operating results, will provide readers with a better understanding of our performance, and should enhance the comparability of our comparative periods. For further information, refer to the Key Performance and non-GAAP measures section of our Q2 2016 Report to Shareholders.

Caution regarding forward-looking statements From time to time, we make written or oral forward-looking statements within the meaning of certain securities laws, including the "safe harbour" provisions of the United States Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 and any applicable Canadian securities legislation. We may make forward-looking statements in this Q2 2016 Report to Shareholders, in other filings with Canadian regulators or the SEC, in other reports to shareholders and in other communications. Forward-looking statements in this document include, but are not limited to, statements relating to our financial performance objectives, vision and strategic goals, the economic and market review and outlook for Canadian, U.S., European and global economies, the regulatory environment in which we operate, the outlook and priorities for each of our business segments, and the risk environment including our liquidity and funding risk. The forward-looking information contained in this document is presented for the purpose of assisting the holders of our securities and financial analysts in understanding our financial position and results of operations as at and for the periods ended on the dates presented; as well as our financial performance objectives, vision and strategic goals, and may not be appropriate for other purposes. Forward-looking statements are typically identified by words such as "believe", "expect", "foresee", "forecast", "anticipate", "intend", "estimate", "goal", "plan" and "project" and similar expressions of future or conditional verbs such as "will", "may", "should", "could" or "would". By their very nature, forward-looking statements require us to make assumptions and are subject to inherent risks and uncertainties, which give rise to the possibility that our predictions, forecasts, projections, expectations or conclusions will not prove to be accurate, that our assumptions may not be correct and that our financial performance objectives, vision and strategic goals will not be achieved. We caution readers not to place undue reliance on these statements as a number of risk factors could cause our actual results to differ materially from the expectations expressed in such forward-looking statements. These factors - many of which are beyond our control and the effects of which can be difficult to predict - include: credit, market, liquidity and funding, insurance, operational, regulatory compliance, strategic, reputation, legal and regulatory environment, competitive and systemic risks and other risks discussed in the Risk management and Overview of other risks sections of our 2015 Annual Report and the Risk management section of this Q2 2016 Report to Shareholders; weak oil and gas prices; the high levels of Canadian household debt; exposure to more volatile sectors, such as lending related to commercial real estate and leveraged financing; cybersecurity; anti-money laundering; the business and economic conditions in Canada, the U.S. and certain other countries in which we operate; the effects of changes in government fiscal, monetary and other policies; tax risk and transparency; and environmental risk. We caution that the foregoing list of risk factors is not exhaustive and other factors could also adversely affect our results. When relying on our forward-looking statements to make decisions with respect to us, investors and others should carefully consider the foregoing factors and other uncertainties and potential events. Material economic assumptions underlying the forward-looking statements contained in this Q2 2016 Report to Shareholders are set out in the Overview and outlook section and for each business segment under the heading Outlook and priorities in our 2015 Annual Report, as updated by the Overview and outlook section of this Q2 2016 Report to Shareholders.

E-CIGARETTES - THE NEW HEALTH ‘TIME BOMB’

The British public and SMOKERS in particular are concerned about the use of e-cigarettes and confused about their safety, according to exclusive research conducted by Allen Carr Addiction Clinics, with 47% of people claiming they view e-cigarettes as the new health time bomb for the NHS. To coincide with World No Tobacco Day on 31 May 2016, a poll of 1,000 smokers and non-smokers conducted by One Poll highlights that 56% of people are concerned about government policy, which encourages the use of e-cigarettes and has plans to prescribe them on the NHS.  A further 56% of those polled said that they are confused about the safety of e-cigarettes, including 49% of people that already use e-cigarettes.   New Health Time Bomb 20% of smokers claim to know of someone, including themselves, who is addicted to e-cigarettes, with 53% of smokers using the devices at some point. Worryingly, 67% felt current policy was more likely to encourage children to try e-cigarettes, which will only add to the problem.   Attitudes to e-cigarettes Overall, it seems the British public is ashamed of its e-cigarettes habit: · More than 21% were embarrassed to use their e-cigarettes in public · 57% felt e-cigarettes shouldn’t be allowed in restaurants · More than 50% felt someone smoking an e-cigarette was the most intrusive thing that could happen in their personal space   · 52% felt e-cigarettes shouldn’t be used at all in public spaces such as on trains or in work places Regional attitudes   Those in London were most concerned about the impact of e-cigarettes (54%), whilst those in the East Midlands were least concerned, with only 39% worried about their impact. John Dicey, Global Managing Director & Senior Therapist of Allen Carr Addiction Clinics comments; “We support anything that helps smokers to quit but these research findings highlight that consumers, including smokers themselves, are confused and wary about the impact of government policy, changing attitudes to vaping and are unclear how safe e-cigarettes actually are.  At Allen Carr Addiction clinics we’re extremely concerned by the way e-cigarettes are marketed and are being pushed as safe/appropriate for use in public places – making smoker-like behaviour more common. Aside from those issues it will be years before the long term negative health effects relating to e-cigarettes are known.  The fact we already have e-cigarette users attending our clinics wanting help to stop indicates that vaping is not the silver bullet the government hopes it is.”   ENDS Case Study: Paul Palmer, 29, from Haverhill, Suffolk, UK is just one of many former e-cigarette users who stopped smoking and vaping using Allen Carr Addiction Clinics. He tried to stop smoking many times before without success until he finally quit in June 2014. Paul initially started to use e-cigarettes to quit smoking but he eventually started both vaping and smoking, so he actually smoked more than before.   After quitting smoking using Allen Carr’s method, Paul realised that using e-cigarettes was just keeping him addicted to nicotine – he was still hooked and controlled by the drug.   Allen Carr’s Addiction Clinics are available in 50+ countries across the globe and the method is endorsed by a wide variety of celebrities and opinion formers.   recent fans include, Michael McIntyre, Richard Branson, Chrissie Hynde , Sir Anthony Hopkins, Ellen DeGeneres, Lou Reed and Angelica Huston are long-term supporters of Allen Carr’s Easyway.  Following on from its phenomenal success in helping smokers, Allen Carr’s approach has also successfully been applied to tackle other problems including e-cigarettes, alcohol, weight, drugs, anxiety, debt, gambling and fear of flying.   For further information visit www.allencarr.com or call 0800 389 2115. · Survey conducted by One Poll in May 2016 · John Dicey is available for interview on Tuesday 31st May and Wednesday 1st June   · Case studies available on request

NORDIC NANOVECTOR CAPITAL MARKETS DAY 2016 TO HIGHLIGHT STRONG PROGRESS TOWARDS VISION OF BECOMING A SIGNIFICANT PLAYER IN HAEMATOLOGICAL CANCERS

Oslo, Norway, 31 May 2016 Today,  Nordic Nanovector ASA (OSE: NANO) hosts  a Capital Markets Day in Oslo to provide investors, analysts and press with the opportunity to learn more about the company’s lead antibody-radionuclide conjugate (ARC) product Betalutin®, a potential new treatment for non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma (NHL), its positioning in the NHL therapy market, development plans, as well as future opportunities for value creation based on its ARC platform. The key takeways from today’s presentations are summarised below. Prof. Luigi Zinzani (Associate Professor of Haematology at the Institute of Haematology “L. e A. Seràgnoli” at the University of Bologna and co-chair of Nordic Nanovector’s Scientific Advisory Board) provides an overview of the existing and emerging landscape of therapies for NHL. Current treatments include anti-CD20 immunotherapy, chemotherapy and radiotherapy, but there is no standard treatment beyond 2nd line. Betalutin®, a novel ARC, could provide a future treatment option for these patients, who relapse or become refractory to standard treatments. Dr Arne Kolstad (a senior consultant in medical oncology and radiotherapy at Oslo University Hospital Radiumhospitalet and a member of Nordic Nanovector’s Scientific Advisory Board) describes how Betalutin® is specifically designed to deliver better treatment outcomes for NHL patients. Dr Kolstad also reviews the latest clinical findings from the ongoing Phase 1/2 trial (Lymrit 37-01) with Betalutin® in NHL patients, which were presented in April at the American Association of Cancer Research annual meeting. These data, combined with the fact that Betalutin® targets a different antigen than standard CD20 therapies, highlights its potential to be a novel, safe and effective therapy for B-cell malignancies.  Dr Marco Renoldi (Nordic Nanovector’s Chief Business Officer) outlines how the insights gained from extensive market research by the company have validated its clinical development strategy and will guide its future commercial strategy with Betalutin®. He also describes how these insights have led the company to define and understand the key steps that it needs to take to support a successful product launch. Dr Jostein Dahle (Nordic Nanovector’s Chief Scientific Officer) provides a glimpse of R&D activities underway at Nordic Nanovector, designed to build an exciting pipeline of ARCs in the longer term.  Dr Dahle will describe Betalutin®’s potential in 2nd line FL, particularly in combination with CD20-targeting immunotherapies. Beyond this, the company aims to leverage its expertise in ARCs and haematology with partners, such as the Paul Scherrer Institute, to identify opportunities for ARCs for other NHL indications. Luigi Costa and Tone Kvåle (Nordic Nanovector’s CEO and CFO, respectively) wrap up the meeting with a presentation detailing the company’s overall strategy focused on maximizing shareholder value through the development of innovative targeted ARC therapies for patients with haematological cancers. Nordic Nanovector’s key strategic priorities: • Obtain approval for lead product Betalutin® in NHL – initially in 3rd line and 2nd line FL – with clinical trials on track and first filing expected in 1H 2019 • Advance the clinical development of Betalutin® in a second significant NHL indication, diffuse large B cell lymphoma (DLBCL) • Selectively extend the company’s pipeline around its core expertise (ARCs and haematology) to enhance innovation and manage risk • Take an opportunistic approach to partnership opportunities to access complementary technologies and expertise • Independently commercialize Betalutin® and its pipeline products in major markets • Leverage management/board expertise alongside efficient capital deployment to ensure the attainment of clinical and corporate objectives All presentations are available at www.nordicnanovector.com in the section:  Investor Relations/Reports and Presentation/Capital Markets days/2016.

The Company's lead clinical-stage product opportunity is Betalutin®, the first in a new class of Antibody-Radionclide-Conjugates (ARC) designed to improve upon a complement current options for the treatment of non-Hodgkin Lymphoma (NHL). NHL is an indication with substantial unmet medical need and orphan drug opportunities, representing a growing market worth over USD 12 billion by 2018. Betalutin® comprises a tumour-seeking anti-CD37 antibody (HH1) conjugated to a low intensity radionclide (lutetium-177). The preliminary data has shown promising efficacy and safety profile in an ongoing Phase1/2 study in a difficult-to-treat NHL patient population. The Company is aiming at developing Betalutin® for the treatment of major types of NHL with first regulator submission anticipated in 1H 2019. Nordic Nanovector intends to retain marketing rights and to actively participate in the commercialisation to Betalutin® in core markets, while exploring potential distribution agreements in selected geographies.

Trigon Agri A/S 1Q 2016 Interim Report

CEO Statement The 2016 harvest year got off to a challenging start, as a result of a prolonged autumn drought in Ukraine, which delayed the germination and development of the winter crops. A mild year end period and a relatively early spring has helped to mitigate the damage from the autumn conditions and adjustments to the planned agronomic applications have been made, so as to be realistic to the winter crops potential. Spring sowing started in good time and proceeded to plan in good conditions through until mid-May when 90% of the spring crops had been completed, high rainfall in the second half of May delayed sowing but conversely benefited all crops. Investment in new technology last autumn for the preparation of spring crop seedbeds has improved both the standard and efficiency of sowing, whilst allowing us to continue to develop our `Low Till technology`. On a small scale we are also evaluating some new crops, such as dried peas, linseed, buckwheat and sugar beet, this to look to broaden the crop rotation. With the drop in oil prices we have seen to a degree a drop in some of our input prices. Nitrogen fertiliser for example we have procured at 18% less per unit than in 2015, agrochemicals are marginally lower in price and fuel today is also 10% cheaper. This is helpful in that forward cereal and oilseeds prices are still at historically low values. Our focus this spring has been to restructure the business in an effort to reduce and control all costs both operational and administrative. In the first quarter there was one significant divestment where 10.74% of the shares held in Trigon Dairy Farming Estonia were sold for EUR 1.5 million. This shows a transaction loss of -EUR 0.6 million and leaves Trigon Agri with a 39.24% shareholding in the business. As of the date of this report, the sale process of the Rostov cluster is still on-going. The assets and liabilities related to Rostov operations are already shown as assets held for sale in the 1Q 2016 report. In preparation for the Rostov sale a valuation write down of EUR 3.3 million has been included in the first quarter figures. This reflects the anticipated transaction loss on the divestment. As reported earlier, in order to raise working capital for the business the issue of the convertible bonds was authorized by the Board of Directors in April, 2016. Following the authorization the bondholders have released EUR 1.5 million to Trigon Agri from the blocked account. The convertible bonds with a total face value of EUR 6.0 million will be subscribed for with a EUR 6.0 million partial redemption of the outstanding bond principal. The convertible bonds can be converted into 195 million new shares in Trigon Agri (equivalent to approximately 60% of the shares and votes in Trigon Agri). Furthermore, the bondholders meeting allowed Trigon Agri to take a bridge loan to provide the finances required for the months of June and July, before the harvest sales cash inflow commences. 2016 will continue to be a year of challenges, as the management continues with the restructuring program. The changes being made now will put the business on a good footing and enable it to grow in strength and move forward at pace. Financial result of the Group •          Total revenue, other income, fair value adjustments and net changes in inventory from continuing operations amounted to EUR 3.3 million (EUR 7.9 million in 1Q 2015). Decline of EUR 2.4 million resulted from the deconsolidation of the Estonian milk business starting from 2Q 2015, while lower gain of biological assets in Ukraine attributed EUR 0.9 million. •          Loss of EBITDA from continuing operations stood at EUR 1.8 million (loss of EUR 0.8 million in 1Q 2015) resulting from Other (losses)/gains-net in Ukraine as from 2016 only 15% of the accumulated VAT balance can be recorded on the Income Statement of the agricultural companies. •          The Net loss was EUR 9.0 million (loss of EUR 8.3 million in 1Q 2015) including a loss of EUR 3.3 million from discontinued operations related to remeasurement of assets held for sale as part of the Rostov framework agreement. Telephone conference details A telephone conference will be held today, on May 31, 2016 at 10.00 CET.

Dialogue and interaction between healthcare professionals and organisations is vital when it comes to building sustainable value to rare disease patients and rare disease communities around the world.” --- About EFPIA Disclosure Code The EFPIA (European Federation of Pharmaceutical Industries and Associations) Disclosure Code is a formal code of conduct that requires all EFPIA member companies and companies which are members of EFPIA member associations to disclose transfers of value to healthcare professionals (HCPs) and healthcare organisations (HCOs).

Trelleborg’s acquisition of CGS Holding finalized

Trelleborg has finalized the acquisition of CGS Holding a.s. – a privately-owned company with leading positions in agricultural, industrial and specialty tires as well as engineered polymer solutions. The total cash consideration amounted to approximately SEK 10.9 billion on a cash and debt-free basis. CGS is headquartered in the Czech Republic and generated sales of approximately SEK 5.6 billion in 2015 with an operating margin of 16.5 percent. “It is highly gratifying to welcome CGS to the Trelleborg Group. The company has long been on our list of interesting acquisitions. The acquisition means that Trelleborg will almost double its sales in agricultural tires, strengthen its leading position in industrial tires and add new positions in complementary specialty tires segments. CGS’s engineered polymer solutions add new interesting positions as well as strengthen Trelleborg’s existing leading positions in several of the Group’s current business areas,” says Peter Nilsson, President and CEO of Trelleborg. CGS Holding includes the businesses Mitas, Rubena and Savatech. Mitas accounts for approximately two-thirds of group sales and has strong mid-market specialty tires brands with a particularly strong position within agricultural tires. The offering of specialty tires is complemented by Rubena’s and Savatech’s niche engineered polymer solutions businesses, including seals, sealing profiles, specialty molded products, printing blankets and other engineered fabrics. “We are convinced the agricultural market will recover, enabling us to benefit from an attractive footprint when it does. Accordingly, we consider the purchase consideration to be attractive considering the expected synergies and the future recovery of the agricultural market,” concludes Peter Nilsson. Mitas will be integrated into the Trelleborg Wheel Systems business area. During transition, other operations will be independent from Trelleborg’s existing operations before being gradually integrated into current business areas.   Following the acquisition, Trelleborg will have sales of about SEK 30 billion, with about 23,000 employees in 47 countries. The transaction will be consolidated from May 31, 2016. Non-recurring costs of approximately SEK 70 million, related to the acquisition, will be charged to the second quarter of 2016. Of this amount, about SEK 50 million will be charged against reported operating income and about 20 million will be charged to net financial items. No PPA effects are included in the above amounts.  The press release regarding the acquisition was published on November 9, 2015.

TALKPOOL INTERIM REPORT JANUARY – MARCH 2016

JAN 1 – MARCH 31, 2016 · Net sales amounted to EUR 2 456 thousand (2 234), a 9 percent increase · EBITDA of 84 thousand (36) and EBITDA margin of 3.4 percent (1.6) · EBIT of EUR 61 thousand (17) and EBIT margin 2.5 percent (0.8) · Profit after tax of to EUR 3 thousand (-95) · Cash flow from operating activities amounted to EUR 20 thousand (-188) FIRST QUARTER HIGHLIGHTS · On February 19, 2016 TalkPool announced its plans for an IPO on Nasdaq First North · A new joint venture was established in Mauritius as preparation for fibre projects · TalkPool conducted a successful IoT ski school tracker trial in Laax, Switzerland CEO COMMENTS TalkPool entered the first quarter (Q1) of 2016 with a significant order book in both the Network Services and IoT business areas. Q1 is considered sluggish as new budgets are yet to be allocated. The planned projects for Q1 in Germany, Mexico, Haiti and Africa were delayed in comparison to the original time plans of our customers. As a consequence of this, some of the expected revenue was allocated in Q2. Nonetheless, we managed to secure a revenue growth of 9 percent in comparison to Q1 in 2015. Moreover a new Joint Venture was prepared in Mauritius in order to provide telecom network implementation and operation services to Huawei. Our IoT Business Unit developed as planned during Q1. Our IoT efforts are now increasingly focusing on IoT ecosystem enablement. The TalkPool IoT team is expanding its unique LPWAN experience towards total solutions and sensors. We are now enabling IoT for smart buildings and cities, harbors and many verticals connecting machines that previously were considered economically unfeasible. During the beginning of 2016, the company invested a vast amount of energy, time and resources in preparation for the IPO. Our global operational units have continued to focus upon service delivery and customer care. In spite of the project delays and the additional costs, TalkPool achieved a consolidated Group EBIT of EUR 61 thousand in Q1 2016, which represents a strong improvement in comparison to Q1 2015. We entered Q2 with our order books still full and the delayed projects from Q1 in Haiti and Germany launched in April and May. Huawei Mauritius provided it’s first significant purchase order to TalkPool Mauritius in April and service deliveries started well in May. In May TalkPool also announced a partnership with Tele2 in the area of IoT. TalkPool will be responsible for the IoT network deployment and design of M2M/IoT solutions. This, combined with Tele2’s world class M2M/IoT leadership, will bring forward innovative and unmatched solutions which will give the companies in Gothenburg a forefront position in the upcoming era of digitalization. On the 24th of May TalkPool made a successful listing on Nasdaq First North. The Offering attracted a strong interest among investors and was tenfold oversubscribed, amounting to a total of SEK 100 million. The successful listing enables us to cease the opportunities for business and acquisitions in the IoT and Network Services Markets, ensuring growth in accordance to our goals. The selection process for acquisition candidates is showing good progress. Hence, TalkPool continues on the planned growth path with network services as our solid foundation for organic growth, topped by the emerging IoT business and JV partnering in strategic markets and service areas.                  Erik Strömstedt, CEOFor further information, please visit www.talkpool.com or contact:Erik Strömstedt, CEO, tel: +41 81 250 20 20Talkpool in briefTalkPool is an independent specialist designing, implementing and maintaining mobile and fixed line telecom networks as well as networks and product solutions for the growing Internet of Things (IoT) market.
