Minesto’s technology transforms ocean energy into one of the most cost-effective energy resources, new Cost of Energy analysis states

As part of its first commercial-scale project, Minesto together with ITPEnergised has completed an updated Levelized Cost of Energy (LCOE) analysis of Minesto’s marine energy converter based on new knowledge of the system, its potential and its costs. Projections now show that Minesto’s LCOE will already fall to €100/MWh after 100MW cumulative installed capacity in tidal streams. Previous estimates showed a 50% higher cost level. This means that Minesto’s technology already at an early stage will be more cost effective than established energy such as new nuclear power. Installing arrays of Minesto devices in continuous ocean currents, providing a much higher capacity factor than tidal streams, will have an even greater impact on the LCOE, with costs falling below €50/MWh following the installation of 100MW cumulative capacity. “This claim is unique in the ocean energy industry – but so is our technology. It is the only known and verified marine energy product that can be deployed in continuous low-flow ocean currents, providing cost-effective renewable base load power generation to grids both large and small all over the world”, said Dr Martin Edlund, CEO of Minesto. He continued: “These new results convince me that our technology is transforming ocean energy into one of the most cost-effective energy resources. The figures are underpinned by our light-weight design, our unique operations and maintenance concept and the fact that we will be operating at low-flow sites. It should also be noted that this analysis is based on conservative learning rates and initially high operating and maintenance cost levels expected from all new innovative solutions.” The substantial LCOE improvement has two main drivers, said Dr Edlund: “First, the expected performance of each system has improved. This can be attributed to our quarter-scale test results, new simulations data and a new verified turbine blade design developed in-house. Secondly, our operating and maintenance concept has improved considerably.” Commenting on the updated LCOE analysis, Dr Ned Minns, Offshore Group Manager at ITPEnergised said: “Minesto compare well to other tidal energy technologies, with significantly lower capital costs. Their cost reduction trajectory in the coming years is on the conservative side due to the cautious assumptions used throughout. Their forecast learning rate matches the prediction by SI Ocean*, however it is only half of that recently achieved by offshore wind and solar, according to Bloomberg**. High levels of learning are more readily achieved by innovative designs like Minesto’s, and if they follow the path of offshore wind and solar, their cost reductions could be achieved sooner than predicted in the model.” “Minesto’s diligence when using the most accurate data available, and creating a model based on standard practice, has led to the creation of an extremely thorough Cost of Energy forecast model which probably doesn’t have an equal in the industry”, Dr Minns added. * Strategic Initiative for Ocean Energy, a project coordinated by Ocean Energy Europe in close cooperation with the European Commission's Joint Research Centre, the UK Carbon Trust, Portugal's Wave Energy Centre, Edinburgh University, Renewable UK and DHI. ** Bloomberg New Energy Outlook 2017 For additional information please contact: Dr Martin EdlundCEO, Minesto AB+46 31 29 00 60press@minesto.com  Magnus MatssonCommunications Manager, Minesto AB+46 70 570 75 08press@minesto.com Background: Minesto’s Cost of Energy model and technology development milestones Minesto’s Cost of Energy model was originally developed in collaboration with ITPEnergised in 2015. It is based on a combination of the Carbon Trust and SI Ocean methodologies, both widely used in the tidal industry, to calculate the LCOE of Minesto’s ocean energy technology. The model is used both as a LCOE calculator and a forecaster, enabling the prediction of the LCOE through the development of new generations of Minesto devices over time.  Functionality and power production of Minesto’s technology have been verified in ocean testing of scale prototypes. To date, five prototypes have been built and tested, and electricity was first produced in 2009. The first test of the technology in authentic ocean environment was completed at Minesto’s test and demonstration facilities in Strangford Lough, Northern Ireland by the end of 2011. In 2013, a 3-meter wing prototype was deployed and that scale has since that been undergoing extensive testing  in the tidal streams of Strangford Lough. Minesto's research and product development plan is to continue prototype testing in Northern Ireland, and in parallel build and commission a 0.5MW device in Holyhead Deep, Wales. The purpose is to demonstrate Minesto’s marine energy converter in commercial-scale. This installation, planned to 2018, will be followed by a gradual expansion to a multi-turbine array. In February 2017, Minesto announced plans  to expand the installed capacity in Holyhead Deep to 80MW. About Minesto Minesto is a marine energy technology company with the mission to minimise the global carbon footprint of the energy industry by enabling commercial power production from the ocean. Minesto’s award winning and patented product, called Deep Green, is the only verified marine power plant that operates cost efficiently in areas with low-flow tidal streams and ocean currents. In May 2015, Minesto secured a €13m investment from the European Regional Development Fund through the Welsh European Funding Office, for the commercial rollout of Deep Green. Minesto was founded in 2007 and has offices in Gothenburg, Sweden, Holyhead, Wales and Portaferry, Northern Ireland. The major shareholders in Minesto are BGA Invest and Midroc New Technology. The Minesto share (MINEST) is traded on the Nasdaq First North Stockholm stock exchange, with G&W Fondkommission as Certified Adviser.

Fazer, Nokia and Nightingale Health join forces for better nutrition and health prospects

Modern work-life puts considerable strain on the performance of our brains: working hours are non-specific and work tasks have become more versatile and abstract. To enable future solutions, Fazer, Nokia and Nightingale aim to increase understanding on holistic well-being and brain health by uniquely combining a specially designed “brainfood” diet, digital biometrics and information from blood in a clinical research setting. The data collected in the study will offer a unique opportunity to analyze the connections between cognition, physiology, sleep quality, stress tolerance and metabolism - and how they can be affected by the quality of nutrition and eating habits. Bringing digital health, biotech and nutrition together to create impact Reaching across various fields, each company will contribute their own expertise. Fazer will provide the "brainfood" meals, healthy food designed to be specifically beneficial for the brain and cognitive performance. Nokia will provide the physiological monitoring of stress, recovery and sleep in real life conditions, using Nokia´s connected health devices and advanced cloud analytics. Nightingale Health will measure comprehensive health information from blood samples taken throughout the trial and carry out statistical analysis of the study overall. Fazer has specially designed “brainfood” meals for the study participants, based on their knowledge of food and nutritional science gained from the Fazer Brainhow programme. “By joining forces with Nokia and Nightingale, we gain an exceptionally wide understanding on the holistic impact of a diet that has been designed to enhance people’s cognitive performance. At its best, this study brings new scientific insights not only for us partners, but also for the whole research community. This study is a crucial part of our Fazer Brainhow programme where we aim to innovate new solutions to help people to maintain and enhance their cognitive well-being”, says Päivi Juolahti, Head of Renewal, Fazer Group. Simon Longbottom, CTO at Nokia Technologies: "We are delighted to be working with Fazer and Nightingale on this groundbreaking research. At Nokia, we care deeply about the health and well-being of individuals and communities. All volunteers who are participating in the study will have access to our unique digital health products while helping researchers better understand how our diets effect our ability to be healthy, happy, and productive. Ultimately, we will all benefit from the learnings and we look forward to using this insight to deliver even better digital health solutions to customers around the world." Nightingale Health, a Finnish biotech company, will use their expertise in blood analysis to uncover health insights from inside the body. “Developing a better understanding of human health is a complex challenge, but it’s typically evaluated from a narrow perspective”, says Nightingale’s CEO Teemu Suna. “To challenge the status quo, we should aim to develop a new holistic approach to monitoring health. One that understands what’s going on inside of us at the molecular level, follows our daily activities, and helps us to see the impact of our diet. A single company can’t achieve this goal on their own, so Nightingale is pleased to partner with Nokia and Fazer, creating a unique joint endeavor that strives to improve health globally.” Tekes, the Finnish Funding Agency for Innovation, is partly funding the multi-partner research collaboration. Results of the study are estimated to be available by the end of 2018.

5G Readiness on the Rise

Ericsson (NASDAQ: ERIC) has released the 5G Readiness Survey 2017. The report shows that many operators have accelerated preparations for the new technology and trials are being carried out by 78 percent of the respondents. Furthermore, 28 percent of the respondents expect to deploy 5G next year. The survey also shows that operators have further developed their business strategies for 5G services. They are now looking beyond the consumer segment and foresee opportunities in the enterprise and industrial segments as well. Thomas Noren, Head of 5G Commercialization, Ericsson, says: “In the 2016 survey, 90 percent of the respondents pointed to consumers as the main segment in their 5G business planning. This year, it is an even split between three segments and operators have identified business opportunities not only in the consumer segment but also with enterprise users and specialized industries.” According to the survey, operators are seeing that the consumer market is becoming saturated. As a result, 5G planning this year is more evenly distributed across specialized industry segments (58 percent), business users (56 percent), and consumers (52 percent). The top three industry sectors that were highlighted by the respondents were media and entertainment, automotive and public transport but many also ranked healthcare as well as energy and utilities among the most attractive sectors for 5G applications. A clear majority of the respondents believe that Internet of Things will play an important role and that third-party collaboration will be essential in this context. In terms of 5G monetization, the respondents believe that additional revenue will be generated from increased market share, migration of 4G subscribers, higher prices for new services, and by expansion into new enterprise and industry segments. The respondents, 50 executives in business and technical areas, were interviewed in July and work for 37 operators globally that have announced publicly they are working on 5G.

Innovation is in our DNA

Twenty years ago a Finnish company – known then as Timberjack – wowed the world with a walking harvester. The ground-breaking technology, such as automation and stability systems, underwent further development and are still applied in John Deere forest machines. The walking forest machine is now displayed in a place of honor at the Deere & Company Pavilion in Moline, Illinois, as a tribute to the Finnish technology. Now part of Deere & Company, John Deere Forestry still leads the industry in developing innovative and reliable machines that improve their customers’ productivity. Machines with new innovative solutions are constantly launched, such as the current G-Series. “The G-Series cut-to-length forest machines respond to our customers’ requirements for reliability, productivity and fuel efficiency. The machines are of high quality, easy to operate and meet the continuously tightening emission regulations,” says Timo Ylänen, Director for John Deere’s cut-to-length forest machines.    Industry leading innovations One of John Deere’s recent innovations is a rotating and levelling cabin. The cabin automatically follows the boom movements giving the operator a straight view to the work area. And it automatically stays level, absorbing terrain changes.  “The rotating and levelling cabin improves operator comfort and productivity especially over a longer period of time. It also helps to attract and to retain the best operators.” Ylänen explains. “When you feel comfortable you will become more productive.”  They also introduced Intelligent Boom Control, a milestone in forwarder technology and now also in harvester technology. This allows operators to control the boom tip directly instead of controlling independent boom joint movements separately. Boom operation has become faster, easier and more accurate.   Made in Finland John Deere Forestry is headquartered in Tampere where about 250 people work in engineering, marketing and administration. Another 450 people work at the factory in Joensuu, which also keeps about 1,000 people busy at its local suppliers. “Close to 90% of our machines are exported,” Ylänen says. “Russia and Sweden are in tight competition to be our number one country for sales.” Forest machines have been manufactured in Joensuu since 1972. Deere & Company have invested tens of millions of euros into product development and the factory, always introducing the newest and most sophisticated technology to the industry. “The company’s extensive investments in the Joensuu factory demonstrate long-term commitment to Finnish forest machine competence. Innovation is one of Deere & Company’s core values and it guides the development of equipment and solutions that improve the productivity and profitability of our customers,” Ylänen says. John Deere Forestry is a long-term main sponsor of the Finnish biathlete Kaisa Mäkäräinen. She has finished on the World Cup podium 70 times and is one of the most popular athletes in Finland. “Biathlon has become a very popular TV sport. As a highly successful athlete and Joensuu resident Kaisa fits in with our corporate image very well,” says Ylänen.    COMPANY ETHICS John Deere is enjoying its eleventh year in a row on the Most Ethical Companies list. Compiled by the Ethisphere Institute, the list measures companies by a variety of categories such as ethics, corporate citizenship, leadership and innovation. “John Deere is 180 years old and you don’t survive that long without strong and sustainable company values,” Ylänen says. “For example, integrity is something we live up to every day. We want to maintain a good reputation in the market and to earn the trust of our customers. This is important for our shareholders and employees, too. We want them to be proud of their company.” Text: David J.

Investigations of specific operations at the Karolinska University Hospital to be discontinued

The two investigations of the surgeon concern five operations on four people during the period 2011-2013. The surgeon was notified of the suspicions against him concerning three counts of causing another’s death, gross crime, alternatively causing bodily harm, gross crime, and one case of causing bodily harm, gross crime. Three out of the four individuals have since died.  − We have reached the conclusion that four of the five operations were negligently carried out, as the surgeon performed the operations using synthetic tracheas, which is in conflict with science and tried-and-tested practice. However, we have been unable to prove that any crimes have been committed. We cannot prove that the effects of his actions, with sufficient degree of probability, would not have occurred had another method been used. Regarding the fourth individual, we are not of the opinion that the surgeon’s actions were negligent. Expert medical opinion is not unanimous regarding what should have been done instead for these seriously ill individuals, which therefore has made the suspicions difficult to prove, says public prosecutor Jennie Nordin. Together with public prosecutors Anders Tordai and Leif Appelgren, Jennie Nordin has analysed a large amount of data. Approximately 80 interviews have been held in Sweden and abroad to obtain details for the investigations.   − The investigations have been comprehensive with many complex medical issues, says Jennie Nordin.

Cantargia announces first patient treated and completed a three weeks safety evaluation period with immuno-oncology antibody CAN04

The first sites in the phase I/IIa clinical trial CANFOUR have been initiated and patient recruitment is ongoing. According to the protocol, patients are recruited in groups of three. Following the start of patient recruitment, all three patients in the first group has now each been given at least two infusions of CAN04.The first patient has completed three infusions and has been followed through a safety evaluation period of 21 days. No serious adverse events have been noted and once all three patients have received three infusions and have completed their 21-day safety evaluation period, the next dose group can be recruited In the CANFOUR trial, treatment using Cantargia’s proprietary antibody CAN04, directed towards the molecular target IL1RAP, is investigated in patients with cancer. CAN04 works through a dual immuno-oncology mode of action and stimulates immune cells to eradicate tumor cells as well as counteracts tumor inflammation by blocking interleukin-1 signalling. The indications studied in this trial are non-small cell lung cancer, pancreatic cancer, colorectal cancer and triple negative breast cancer. The relevance of targeting IL1RAP has been documented in all these diseases. The primary endpoint for the trial is safety. Other endpoints include pharmacokinetics, efficacy and biomarkers. The first part of the trial is a dose escalation phase, investigating repeated infusions of CAN04 at different dose levels in order to identify the dose to be used in phase II. The results from this part are expected during summer 2018. After data analysis, the second part is planned to further investigate CAN04 as monotherapy treatment in approximately 20 patients with non-small cell lung cancer or pancreatic cancer, as well as a combination therapy arm investigating CAN04 with standard therapy in one of these forms of cancer. The exact choice of indication and combination therapy will be decided after completion of the first part. The trial is conducted at highly regarded and well experienced sites in Denmark, Norway, Belgium and the Netherlands. Trial information can be found on www.clinicaltrials.gov. “We are excited to have started treatment of patients in this important trial”, Göran Forsberg, CEO of Cantargia, says. “The initiation of sites and recruitment of patients follow our plan”.

Bolaget mottog sin första order under 2015 och har sedan dess byggt upp en kundbas bestående av bland annat Viking Line, Virgin Voyages/Fincantieri, Maersk Line, CP Energy och SSAB. Det har nu nått ett stadium där Climeon har beprövat sin teknik och dess kommersiella gångbarhet genom upprepade beställningar från ledande aktörer inom ett flertal industrier. Produkten är patentskyddad och erbjuder marknadsledande prestanda inom sina applikationsområden. Climeon har även byggt upp en skalbar organisation med hög produktionskapacitet och en erfaren ledningsgrupp som är redo för tillväxt.Climeons marknad och fokussegmentSpillvärme och geotermisk energi (under 120 °C) utgör tillsammans en stor energikälla som idag mestadels är outnyttjad på grund av begränsningar hos befintlig teknik. Climeons produkt är det första värmeåtervinningssystem som i stor skala kan nyttja denna tidigare outnyttjade energikälla för att generera el. Bolaget har därmed möjligheten att inta en ny marknad med begränsad konkurrens.

Remetinostat phase II data demonstrate efficacy on skin lesions, reduction of itching and high tolerability in patients with early-stage MF-type CTCL

Stockholm, Sweden - Medivir AB (Nasdaq Stockholm: MVIR) today announces that phase II efficacy and safety data in patients with Mycosis Fungoides (MF) type early-stage Cutaneous T-cell Lymphoma (CTCL) demonstrated that remetinostat gel 1%, when applied topically twice daily, reduced the severity of CTCL skin lesions. Remetinostat also caused a clinically significant reduction in the severity of pruritus (itching) in those patients with clinically significant pruritus at the start of the study, and was highly tolerable with no systemic adverse effects. These data were contained in an abstract published at the European Organization for Research and Treatment of Cancer (EORTC) Cutaneous Lymphoma Task Force meeting being held in London on October 13-15th. The details of the study are scheduled to be presented at the meeting by Dr Madeleine Duvic, Professor of Internal Medicine and Dermatology at the MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, Texas. The remetinostat phase II trial enrolled 60 patients with stage IA-IIA MF, the predominant variant of CTCL, across five different clinical sites in the USA. Patients were randomized to receive one of remetinostat gel 0.5% twice daily, remetinostat gel 1% once daily, or remetinostat gel 1% twice daily, for up to 12 months. The primary end-point of the study was the proportion of patients with either a complete or partial confirmed response to therapy, assessed using the Composite Assessment of Index Lesion Severity. The study showed a dose response with patients in the remetinostat gel 1% twice daily arm having the highest proportion of confirmed responses including 1 complete response. Based on an intent-to-treat analysis, confirmed response rates in patients were as follows: +--------+------------+---------------------------------+------------------+|Dose Arm|Number of |Number of Patients with Confirmed|% of Patients with|| |Patients per|Response (whereof complete |Confirmed Response|| |Arm |response) | |+--------+------------+---------------------------------+------------------+|1% twice| 20 | 8 (1) | 40% ||daily | | | |+--------+------------+---------------------------------+------------------+|0.5% | 20 | 5 (0) | 25% ||twice | | | ||daily | | | |+--------+------------+---------------------------------+------------------+|1% once | 20 | 4 (0) | 20% ||daily | | | |+--------+------------+---------------------------------+------------------+ As a secondary objective the effect of remetinostat gel on severity of pruritus was assessed monthly for the duration of the study using the visual analogue scale (VAS). Among patients with clinically significant pruritus at baseline, those who received remetinostat gel 1% twice daily had the highest proportion of patients achieving clinically significant reduction in pruritus from baseline. The proportions of patients who had confirmed, clinically significant, reductions in pruritus from baseline, defined as at least a 30mm reduction in the VAS score sustained for >4 weeks, were as follows: +--------+--------------------------------------+|Dose Arm|% Patients with Confirmed Clinically || |Significant Reduction in Pruritus from|| |Baseline |+--------+--------------------------------------+|1% twice| 80% ||daily | |+--------+--------------------------------------+|0.5% | 50% ||twice | ||daily | |+--------+--------------------------------------+|1% once | 37.5% ||daily | |+--------+--------------------------------------+ Remetinostat was generally well tolerated, with adverse events evenly distributed across the treatment arms. The most common adverse events were skin related and mostly grade 1-2. There were no signs of systemic adverse effects related to remetinostat treatment, including those associated with systemic HDAC inhibitors. Most patients remained on study for the maximum possible duration and the median treatment time was 350 days. “The beneficial effects of remetinostat on both CTCL lesions and the pruritus associated with early-stage CTCL that were observed in this clinical trial are highly encouraging, as was its safety profile” said John Öhd, Chief Medical Officer at Medivir AB. “Given the chronic nature of this cancer and the limited availability of safe, effective and convenient treatments, patients with early-stage CTCL are in need of new treatment options that effectively control the symptoms of the disease and that are safe to use over long periods for time. The results of the phase II study support the progression of remetinostat into a pivotal clinical program.”  Based on the outcomes of the phase II study, Medivir expects to meet with regulatory authorities to discuss the design of a pivotal clinical program for remetinostat in MF-type CTCL.

The information was submitted for publication, through the agency of the contact persons set out above,at 12.45 CET on 13 October 2017. About Mycosis Fungoides (MF) and Cutaneous T-cell Lymphoma (CTCL)Cutaneous T-cell Lymphoma (CTCL) is an orphan hematologic cancer that presents primarily in the skin. According to the National Cancer Institute, mycosis fungoides (MF) is the most common variant of CTCL. MF affects an estimated 15,000 to 20,000 people in the United States, with an estimated 1,500 new cases annually. Around 75% of affected patients are in early-stages (stages IA-IIA) where the disease is confined to the skin. Patients remain at these stages for extended periods and require long-term, skin-directed treatments for their disease. A small proportion of patients go on to develop cutaneous tumours or systemic disease, and these patients then require systemic anti-cancer therapy, which may include systemic histone deacetylase (HDAC) inhibitors. Pruritus, or itching, is a major symptom that adversely affects quality of life in many CTCL patients. Available topical drugs for early-stage CTCL are not always effective and tolerable, and sometimes worsen pruritus. Medivir estimates that the addressable market for an efficacious and tolerable treatment for early-stage CTCL in the US alone is approximately USD 900m annually.  About remetinostatRemetinostat is a uniquely topical histone deacetylase (HDAC) inhibitor that Medivir is developing for the treatment of early-stage mycosis fungoides (MF) type CTCL. Remetinostat has been designed to be effective in the skin but degraded rapidly in the bloodstream to avoid the adverse effects associated with systemically administered HDAC inhibitors.   About MedivirMedivir is a research-based pharmaceutical company with a focus on oncology. We have a leading competence within protease inhibitor design and nucleotide/nucleoside science and we are dedicated to develop innovative pharmaceuticals that meet great unmet medical needs. Medivir is listed on the Nasdaq Stockholm Mid Cap List.

Husqvarna Group scales back business with large U.S. retail customer

The Consumer Brands Division of the Husqvarna Group will significantly reduce the volume of business with one of its biggest U.S. retail customers, following the strategy to focus resources on accounts with more attractive opportunities. The Division has started to adjust capacity and other measures to mitigate short-term negative financial effects. Because of the reduced volume, the Consumer Brands Division’s net sales for 2018 is expected to decline by some SEK 1 Bn compared to 2017. This will delay the operating income improvement trajectory. “We are committed to a strong, future-oriented Consumer Brands Division, and this means we need to take decisions that are painful in the short term.” says Kai Wärn, President and CEO of Husqvarna Group. The Group’s financial target of an operating margin of at least 10% for the coming years remains unchanged. Additional information will be provided in connection to the Q3 2017 results announcement on October 20. In 2018, the Consumer Brands Division will focus more resources on battery-powered products and robotic lawn mowers under several different brands. Launches include a refreshed Weed Eater® brand with a new line of interchangeable tools and a full line of 58-volt battery-powered handheld products under the Poulan Pro® and Jonsered® brands. “We are developing opportunities in battery products and robotic mowers,” says Jeff Hohler, President Consumer Brands Division, “and while the decision to reduce volume may be a near term setback, we are confident that we will emerge stronger as a Division in the mid to longer term.”

New Volvo 7900 Electric offers greater range and flexibility

Battery capacity, in particular, has been significantly extended compared with before. The new Volvo 7900 Electric is available with a choice of 150, 200 and 250 kWh. This means that the bus can run far longer between charges, allowing it to be utilised more efficiently throughout the day. “This is a very important reinforcement of our electromobility product range, giving our customers maximum flexibility in their daily operations. During peak hours the buses can operate continuously without stopping to recharge. Instead, the batteries can be charged once traffic is at off-peak levels. On shorter routes, they can even run throughout the day and be charged at night,” says Håkan Agnevall, President of Volvo Buses. “As the demand for electric buses has grown very rapidly both in Europe and the rest of the world, it feels really good that we can offer cities an electric-bus system that provides better preconditions than ever to switch to sustainable, quiet and emission-free public transport.” Volvo Buses has also expanded the range of options regarding the way the batteries are charged. Just like before the batteries in the new Volvo 7900 Electric can be fast-charged at the route’s end stops, via the open and competition-neutral OppCharge interface. However, they can now also be charged via cable, CCS, which is the European standard for charging of electric vehicles from the mains grid. “Operators can choose the charge interface that best suits each particular occasion. For instance, CCS is suitable for high-power charging when the bus is parked in the depot,” says Johnny Lidman, Product Manager City Buses Europe at Volvo Buses. The new Volvo 7900 Electric is being launched on the market and has its premiere showing at the Busworld international bus fair in Kortrijk, Belgium, on 20 to 25 October. The first models of Volvo’s new generation of electric buses are expected to become operational at the end of 2018. The electric buses are sold in the form of a complete, turnkey solution, with Volvo taking care of all maintenance of both vehicles and batteries at a fixed monthly cost. The new Volvo 7900 Electric ·  All-electric propulsion, two-axle 12-metre city bus with low floor and three doors. ·  Quiet and emission-free operation. ·  80 % lower energy consumption than corresponding diesel bus. ·  Battery capacity 150, 200 or 250 kWh. ·  Can be charged via OppCharge or CCS (250 kWh charge only via CCS) ·  Operating range up to 200 km depending on topography and driving conditions. ·  Volvo’s advanced steering system Volvo Dynamic Steering (VDS) and the safety-enhancing Pedestrian and Cyclist Detection Warning are available as options.

Beijer Ref acquires refrigeration wholesaler in South Africa

Tecsa Pty Ltd, controlled by Westbrooke Investments and trading as TecsaReco, is a South African wholesaler that offers a wide range of products and brands within commercial and domestic refrigeration, air conditioning and spare parts for domestic appliances. Beijer Ref acquires the company for a purchase price amounting to between SEK 255 and 300 million. The variable portion of the purchase price is dependent on TecsaReco’s performance in the current financial year ending 28 February 2018. Tecsa was originally founded in 1965 as a wholesaler of parts and accessories for household appliances. In 2013, Tecsa acquired Reco, a refrigeration and air conditioning wholesaler that started its operations in 1947. The company’s headquarters are located in Johannesburg and its products are distributed through a number of branches, of which one is located in Namibia and one in Botswana. In total, TecsaReco has more than 300 employees and gross sales in 2016 amounted to approximately SEK 435 million. The company has a good track record and is profitable. The business will continue to be operated as a standalone business in its current form. Beijer Ref is previously present in South Africa through the wholly owned refrigeration wholesalers Eurocool and Metraclark. ”The acquisition is positive for several reasons,” said Per Bertland, CEO of Beijer Ref. ”Our product range is strengthened with complementary segments and brands. We also access new and well-established sales channels. Above all, Beijer Ref acquires a stronger footprint in a growing market with a population that is gradually increasing its income and purchasing ability. The opportunities to reach out with our own manufactured and more environmentally friendly products also increase significantly.” The parties have reached a binding agreement as of today and the takeover is scheduled for 1 March 2018.

The protector of the oceans receives the Volvo Environment Prize

Professor Rashid Sumaila is Director of the Fisheries Economics Research Unit, Institute for the Oceans and Fisheries at the University of British Columbia, Canada. Scientists here have been compiling statistics for years, clearly demonstrating that the global fish catch has stalled and is now falling, despite increased efforts from fishing fleets all over the world. “There is clear scientific evidence, supported by reports from fishermen all over the world that we are currently taking out too much fish. We are overfishing, depleting our resources”, says Rashid Sumaila. The world’s oceans, covering 70 per cent of the surface of the planet, were once seen as an infinite supply source for humans to use. But they are under strong pressure. Global fisheries catch is about 130 million tonnes of fish a year, caught both legally and illegally. It is a huge business, with an economic impact of about USD 500-billion a year, providing much-needed protein for billions of people and jobs for tens of millions. With global fish catch now in decline, both the business and food security are threatened. Rashid Sumaila’s research covers all aspects of the future health of the oceans: overfishing, oil spills, plastics pollution, ocean acidification and climate change. But he also provides solutions for managing the marine biosphere. One of his suggestions is to close the high seas to commercial fishing. The exclusive economic zones outside coastlines are usually guarded and monitored by individual countries. But the high seas cover two thirds of the world’s oceans. They are owned by everyone and no-one, which means they are up for grabs – and undefended. Rashid Sumaila has suggested a total ban on fishing in the high seas, an idea initially seen as totally unrealistic. This has changed and the first high seas marine protected area, the Ross Sea in Antarctica, will come into force by 1 December 2017. He has been invited to present his idea to the United Nations, the Global Ocean Commission and the American Association for the Advancement of Sciences. “If we were to protect the high seas, we would create areas where the fish can hide and grow. Fish can later seed the economic zones of countries. This will improve not only the marine biodiversity but also the economics”, says Rashid Sumaila. Another of Rashid Sumaila’s research areas is subsidies to fishing fleets. He finds them mainly harmful and a factor behind overfishing. Through calculations, he and other researchers, looking globally, estimate it would be necessary to substantially cut down the current fishing fleets. “The science shows that this is what we need to do. If you want to rebuild, you need to pull back. If we allow the fish stocks to grow again, we can start to fish more and support people around the world with healthy animal protein. To say that the oceans are our lives is not an understatement: They need protection and how we treat them will have a profound impact on current and future generations.” The motivation of the jury of the Volvo Environment Prize Foundation:“Professor Sumaila is one of the world’s most innovative researchers on the future of the oceans, integrating the social and economic dimensions with ecology, law, fisheries science and traditional knowledge to build new pathways towards sustainable fisheries.He is a highly effective, strongly interdisciplinary researcher tackling one of the most complex global sustainability challenges of the 21st century.” This is echoed by the President of the University of British Columbia, Professor Santa Ono: “We are incredibly proud of Professor Rashid Sumaila. He is not only one of the most cited scientists, he also has the ability to bring science to life, to get everyone from children to laymen to experts interested in sustainability, climate change and the economy of fisheries, an area which he has pioneered.” For more information about the Volvo Environment Prize and this year’s winner, please contact the chairman of the jury, Professor Will Steffen, Fenner School of Environment and Society, Australian National University, e-mail: will.steffen@anu.edu.au Phone: +61 2 6125 4588 The Volvo Environment Prize was founded in 1988 and has become one of the world’s most prestigious environmental prizes.

Xiuhtezcatl Martinez is coming to Södertälje for the Children’s Climate Prize 2017!

The first prize was awarded the inspiring climate warrior Xiuhtezcatl Martinez, 16, USA. Since his visit to Sweden last year with a noted Skavlan guest appearance he’s been travelling all around the world inspiring other youths to take action on climate issues. Xiuhtezcatl is one of 21 young people taking President Trump and members of his administration to federal court over inaction on global warming. Last year, the lawsuit survived motions by industry and government to dismiss the case. It has taken on new significance in the Trump era. The President has famously called climate change a hoax, and members of his Cabinet have equivocated on the science. While awaiting a court date Xiuhtezcatl continue to be a powerful voice on the front lines of the environmental movement, educating his generation about the state of the planet they are inheriting and inspiring youth into action to protect the earth. His message has inspired youth to join the front lines combating the environmental crisis, as well as form Earth Guardian crews in over 30 countries, some of which will also participate as guests at this year's Children's Climate Prize. Xiuhtezcatls work has been featured in media such as Showtime, National Geographic, Rolling Stones, Upworthy, The Guardian, Vogue, Bill Maher, Skavlan, CNN, MSNBC, HBO, VICE, and much more. –We are so happy and genuinely proud to see Xiuhtezcatl in Södertälje again for this occasion, says Mats Fagerström, CEO at Telge Energi and initiator of the prize. This year's winner and finalists are officially announced in November. The winner and finalists are appointed by a jury, and the winner will receive a medal, diploma and a prize fund of SEK 50,000. November 22nd will be an evening out of the ordinary with first class entertainment from some of Sweden's leading artists, an outstanding dinner and an award ceremony when we celebrate this years young climate heroes. Telge Energi has initiated the Children’s Climate prize and actively engages in the transition to a sustainable society by working exclusively with renewable energy. The Children's Climate Prize is awarded to a child or youth who has done something extraordinary for the climate and environment. The prize was established in 2016 to highlight another perspective on the climate issue, recognizing that it is the children's future at stake, that their voices matter and deserve to be listened to.

False advertising by Smith & Nephew can put patients at risk of pressure ulcers, Mölnlycke lawsuit alleges

NORCROSS, GA, Monday, October 16, 2017 – Patients could face increased risk of pressure ulcers due to false and misleading advertising and promotional activity by Smith & Nephew, according to new allegations in a pending lawsuit filed by Mölnlycke, a world-leading medical solutions company. The suit asserts that Smith & Nephew’s claims about the ability of its Allevyn® Life wound dressings to prevent pressure ulcers mislead healthcare decision makers into purchasing a product that lacks clinical evidence. “Misrepresentation of facts about medical devices can expose patients to an increased risk of unnecessary pain and suffering. With a recent randomized clinical trial (RCT) demonstrating an 88 percent reduction in pressure ulcers,[1] our Mepilex® Border Sacrum has been proven effective in multiple published and peer-reviewed clinical studies, including four published RCTs.[1-8] No other 5-layer foam dressing relies on as many rigorous clinical studies,”[2,7,8] says Mölnlycke CEO, Richard Twomey. “Our proprietary Deep Defense™ technology is unique and is not replicated by any other 5-layer sacrum dressing.”[9] The lawsuit alleges that: “Each year more than 2.5 million people in the U.S. develop pressure ulcers, resulting in 60,000 patient deaths.[10] In addition to causing unnecessary patient pain, suffering, and mortality, pressure ulcers are costly for hospitals due to longer stays, denial of payment and potential litigation. Management of pressure ulcers costs the healthcare system $11 billion annually.”[11]  The lawsuit further alleges that, “A latecomer in the area, Smith & Nephew has made false, misleading, and unsubstantiated advertising claims, including those which compare its Allevyn Life dressings to Mölnlycke’s Mepilex Border dressings.” Mölnlycke alleges that “these advertisements injure it, but more importantly, put patients at risk of unnecessary suffering and death. Mölnlycke pursues this action to stop Smith & Nephew’s false, misleading, and unsubstantiated advertising.” The suit outlines several instances of misleading claims by Smith & Nephew through advertisements, news releases, websites, brochure and trade shows. As detailed in the filing, Smith & Nephew has: •  Claimed a 2013 publication in the International Wound Journal [12] showed its product could reduce treatment costs substantially, even though the publication was about an RCT that did not include Allevyn Life.[5] Led by Professor Nick Santamaria, a leading authority on pressure ulcer prevention, the RCT included only Mölnlycke’s Mepilex Border Sacrum and Mepilex Heel.[5] •  Asserted that a 2016 study[13] at Sidney & Lois Eskenazi Hospital in Indianapolis demonstrated its product had reduced hospital-acquired pressure ulcers (HAPUs) by 69 percent. However, the HAPU incidence rate had already declined by 60 percent before Smith & Nephew’s product was added to the study. •  Made false, misleading, and unsubstantiated claims that its products delivered greater pressure ulcer protection than Mepilex Border based on laboratory pressure redistribution studies, including one that simply positions a steel ball on a dressing that has been placed on a pressure mapping pad, despite no evidence that the tests correlate to protection in humans. Indeed, Smith & Nephew's steel ball test is criticized in published literature.[14] The new allegations were filed in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Georgia. The action expands on a lawsuit originally submitted by Mölnlycke in April 2017.

INTERIM REPORT January–September 2017

Q3 2017 · Net sales SEK 5 544 m · EBITDA SEK 1 051 m · EBITDA margin 19% · Earnings per share SEK 2.48 KEY HIGHLIGHTS · Net sales for the third quarter increased by approximately 3% compared with the same quarter last year, mainly as a result of improved prices in local currency. · EBITDA was just over 1% better than in the same quarter last year as a result of local price increases. · EBITDA was affected by costs of SEK 215 million for planned maintenance shutdowns. · Earnings per share for the quarter amounted to SEK 2.48 (2.41). OUTLOOK – Q4 · Demand and order situation are expected to be strong in the fourth quarter with normal seasonal variances for all business areas. · The Packaging Paper and Corrugated Solutions business areas see opportunities for local price increases in the next quarter. · Wood costs for Q4 are expected to be unchanged. · Costs for planned maintenance shutdowns in the fourth quarter are estimated at SEK 120 million. · Additional non-recurring costs at Gruvön of around SEK 30 million for training and temporary staff are expected to impact the fourth quarter. OUTLOOK for 2018 · Paper prices in local currency are expected to increase. · The total raw material cost might be impacted by an increased market demand. · The pulp price is expected to decrease during the year. · Production capacity is estimated to increase by approximately 1%. · The MG machine, moved to Skärblacka from Tervasaari, will be started up and is expected to produce 40 ktonnes, mainly in the second half of the year. · Before the start-up of the new board machine at Gruvön in 2019, the company will need to build up stock of around 20 ktonnes. · The company expects additional non-recurring costs at Gruvön of around SEK 150 million for loss of volumes, training and temporary staff. Comments by BillerudKorsnäs’ CEO Per Lindberg: Good demand and stable results  “We experienced a very strong market in the quarter, resulting in positive sales performance. Net sales were up 3% and volumes were up 1% on last year. Overall, we have had some difficulties with production availability in recent quarters, so we have established a new organisation to work proactively on both availability and quality at our facilities. I am confident that this will generate results over the coming years. Looking ahead, market conditions appear encouraging, and we see good opportunities for continued growth. In the longer term, we will have additional support from increasing demand for sustainable packaging solutions. In this respect, our major investments, which will start to deliver in 2018 and 2019, will make a significant positive contribution to our growth on this market.”     THE RESULT EBITDA in the quarter was SEK 1 051 million and we experienced positive sales performance on the back of a strong market in Europe and increased demand in China and the rest of Asia. The slightly higher volumes, combined with higher prices, offset negative currency movements. During the quarter, our Karlsborg production unit was affected by a production shutdown due to a fire, which had an approximately SEK 35 million impact on earnings. The fire was put out quickly and there were no injuries to personnel, but it caused extensive damage to cabling in an adjacent area. The damage has been repaired and Karlsborg’s production is running according to plan once again. The business areas delivered stable earnings. Consumer Board recorded its highest cartonboard sales volumes since Billerud and Korsnäs merged. Within Corrugated Solutions, Managed Packaging posted sales growth of almost 50 percent compared to last year. MARKET OUTLOOK The market for all business areas is expected to remain strong over the next quarter. We are seeing favourable order levels and opportunities for further price increases. It is uncertain, however, how large the price increases may be. In the longer term, this positive picture is being further strengthened by growing demand for sustainable packaging solutions, particularly regarding alternatives to plastic. Plastic waste is one of the greatest environmental challenges of our time and we are therefore seeing a greater focus on regulation to counter unnecessary use of plastic. This is strengthening our competitiveness as opportunities to replace less sustainable solutions are growing. STRATEGY Efficiency is a cornerstone of our strategy. Our approach to efficiency is about doing things right, and having efficient processes and practices. It is our customers who principally determine what are the right things to do. That’s why we are increasingly focusing on developing and harmonising our working practices by strengthening group-wide functions within our production organisation. This relates in particular to minimising production disruptions and ensuring our products maintain consistently high quality. Another aspect of this is structural. Our two major investment projects, a new board machine at Gruvön and a world-leading MG centre at Skärblacka, not only demonstrate our ambition of meeting the market’s growing needs with efficient board and paper machines. We have also demonstrated our ability to create a production system that is efficient both in terms of its overall structure and its constituent parts. This is in order to supply our current and future customers with the highest-quality sustainable packaging materials and solutions. These projects are proceeding to schedule and we are looking forward to the start-ups; spring 2018 for Skärblacka and spring 2019 for Gruvön. BillerudKorsnäs’ President and CEO Per Lindberg and CFO Susanne Lithander will present the interim report at a press and analyst conference at 10.00 CET on Tuesday 17 October 2017.Venue: Tändstickspalatset, Västra Trädgårdsgatan 15, StockholmThe press and analyst conference can also be viewed live on BillerudKorsnäs’ website www.billerudkorsnas.com.   For further information, please contact:Per Lindberg, President and CEO +46 (0)8 553 335 00Susanne Lithander, CFO, +46 (0)8 553 335 00 This information constituted insider information prior to publication.

New real-time translation service will create conversations between newly arrived and Swedes

The test is conducted in collaboration between Reach for Change, Tele2 and Nokia to reduce language barriers that hinder integration and establish relations between newly arrived and Swedes. “This is a great example on how more creative and innovative solutions can open up our society for children and adolescents who have come to Sweden. The service can hopefully become a great tool for organizations such as Kompis Sverige, who are doing a fantastic job pairing unaccompanied youth with established Swedish youth,” says Sofia Breitholtz, CEO of Reach for Change. The technology making this possible comes from Microsoft that recently released the Syrian dialect of Arabic. Nokia has then made changes to the service connectivity to make it work on Tele2’s network and thereby via calls. The technology will be tested during four weeks with four pairs of friends. The language that mainly will be tested is Syrian Arabic-English and the youth will help evaluate the product by the end of the test period. Peter Wennerström, Head of CBT Nordic and Baltic, Nokia, comments: “We are excited to test this solution and see how it can be applied. It is essential that people living in Sweden can understand and engage with societal functions in the country, regardless of the language they speak. Once this technology is ready for mass use, there will be no limits to the communication potential it can unlock in society. With this initiative, Nokia - in cooperation with its customers - can connect the unconnected and bring the benefits of technology to our communities.” Viktor Wallström, VP Communications, Tele2 AB, comments: “Tele2 is always looking to innovate and to create better lives for children. We are happy to combine these passions in this project that aims to enable unaccompanied refugee youth to live a more connected life and hence participate and contribute to society to a greater extent. I look forward to seeing the results from the pilot period and the positive change we can accomplish together with Reach for Change and Nokia.” Read more about Reach for Change and Share the Brief project here: http://sweden.reachforchange.org/sv/ Read more about Nokia here: www.nokia.com For more information, please contact:Angelica Gustafsson, Head of Public Relations, Tele2 AB, Phone: +46 704 26 41 42Erik Strandin Pers, Head of Investor Relations , Tele2 AB, Phone: +46 733 41 41 88 TELE2’S MISSION IS TO FEARLESSLY LIBERATE PEOPLE TO LIVE A MORE CONNECTED LIFE. We believe the connected life is a better life, and so our aim is to make connectivity increasingly accessible to our customers, no matter where or when they need it. Ever since Jan Stenbeck founded the company in 1993, it has been a tough challenger to the former government monopolies and other established providers.

INTERIM REPORT JANUARY-SEPTEMBER 2017

Comment by President and CEO Mikael Ericson During the third quarter of 2017, we had a high level of activity to implement the merger with Lindorff. We have decided on a new brand, Intrum, and a new shared identity for the merged company. All of the management teams have been appointed and are now working to plan and implement actions to secure the value we perceive in the new company. On the whole, we are maintaining a very good pace and quality in the process of integrating the new Group. The process of divesting certain subsidiaries in accordance with commitments to the EU competition authority has continued well. In the third quarter, Intrum developed well in terms of both investment levels and earnings, serving to confirm the competitiveness of the new company. Adjusted for non-recurring items and items affecting comparability, our operating earnings rose by 17 percent pro forma compared with the same period last year. The increase is mainly attributable to Financial Services, where we have a significant volume increase in purchased debt combined with a good return rate of 15 percent for the quarter. Investments in purchased debt rose by 42 percent in the third quarter, pro forma compared with the same period last year, with a favorable increase in investments in secured consumer receivables and receivables from small and medium-sized companies. Within Credit Management Services too, we had a good increase in income at 10 percent for the third quarter, pro forma compared to the same quarter last year, primarily from acquired units but also from positive organic growth. During the third quarter, we also made a small acquisition in Credit Management Services in the Netherlands We are still seeing highly favorable activity in our markets, with a considerable supply of debt portfolios and opportunities for value-generating acquisitions. In early October, the ECB published further guidance for banks regarding the management of overdue loans, which we believe will contribute to good business opportunities for Intrum in the coming years. In October, we also established cooperation with one of the larger banks in Greece, where we acquired a portfolio of expired consumer receivables, providing good opportunities to develop into a strong partner for Greek banks that have a significant proportion of unsecured loans on their balance sheets. Accordingly, on the whole, we take a very positive view of the opportunities for growth over the coming years in our existing business and in new asset classes and markets. At the same time, we are committed to taking advantage of such opportunities with balanced risk-taking through our highly diversified operations and through the continued disciplined application of our investment criteria. Within the framework of our efforts to promote a sound economy, we continued to inform various stakeholders during the quarter about the effects of late payments in society. During the quarter, we compiled Intrum’s European Industry White Paper, which provides insights into how different sectors are developing in Europe and what consequences late payments have for companies in these sectors. The report is used both as a basis for discussions at customer meetings and to influence decision makers and politicians locally and in the EU. In addition, we have, for several years, partnered with Hand-in-Hand International and, in the third quarter, we extended our cooperation with this organization. Among other efforts, Hand-in-Hand International trains women in rural India to start and run their own businesses, gaining access to micro-finance, to thus be able to support their families. We are very proud of the work that Hand-in-Hand carries out and see our partnership as an important part of our endeavor to be a company leading the way towards a sounder economy. To sum up, Intrum has developed well in the third quarter, and I have a very positive view of the Group’s prospects. As the clear market leader in an industry with high growth potential, we have excellent opportunities to generate significant values for our clients, our owners and society. Presentation of the interim report The year-end report and presentation materials are available at www.intrum.com/Investor relations.

Insplorion and RISE are granted SEK 350,000 by Vinnova for further miniaturization of the battery sensor

"This grant allows us to accelerate our own miniaturization work. In addition, we will work closely with RISE and their experts in miniaturization. It's an exciting project that complements our other collaborations with the industry," says Patrik Dahlqvist, CEO of Insplorion. The transition to a fossil-free fleet is crucial for reducing greenhouse gas emissions. However, today, the cost and performance of existing lithium-ion batteries hamper a rapid transition. Today's batteries are oversized and used well below their maximum capacity. Insplorion has developed a sensor technology that enables monitoring of local chemical- and temperature changes inside batteries, enabling end users to achieve increased performance for their application. To achieve widespread acceptance of Insplorion's battery sensor, all parts of the system should be small enough for integration into a battery module at an attractive cost. In this project, the possibilities for a miniaturized sensor system are further developed. This pre-trial will address the cost issue, and the ambition is to carry out a theoretical and practical study aiming at finding solutions that can be further developed into a cheap reading system for Insplorion's fibre-optic NPS sensors. The preliminary study will also describe possible further developments that can provide improvements specifically for the battery sensor as application but also open opportunities for new applications.

SIGNIFICANTLY IMPROVED OPERATING INCOME Qliro Group has further strengthened its position in digital commerce in the Nordic region during the quarter. We have made progress in line with the strategic priorities communicated at the beginning of the year. Our e-commerce operations have increased sales, gross margin and operating margin. Qliro Financial Services leverages these volumes and expands its business and offering. Adding financial services broadens our position in the value chain and further improves our prospects for profitable growth.   Growth and strengthened gross marginConsolidated net sales increased by 6 per cent (4 per cent adjusted for exchange rate fluctuations), while the gross margin was strengthened by 5.6 percentage points to 23.6 per cent in the quarter. The increase was driven by CDON Marketplace’s growth, Nelly’s growth and profitability, and Qliro Financial Services’ expansion. We are also pleased with the cash flow generated in Health and Sports Nutrition Group. Growth in CDON Marketplace creates economies of scaleCDON Marketplace’s gross merchandise value increased by 8 per cent in the quarter, despite the negative impact of a new tax on sales of home electronics in Sweden. We continue to invest in building the leading digital marketplace in the Nordic region. We are confident that this is the right way to go in the long-term even if it involves increased costs for technology and marketing. Growth for CDON Marketplace drives volume and economies of scale for the entire Group, including Qliro Financial Services. Nelly correctly positioned for profitable growthNelly’s sales increased by 10 per cent to SEK 278 million, and operating income before depreciation, amortization and impairment increased by SEK 17 million to SEK 24 million in the quarter. This was partly driven by a high share of own brands in relation to total sales as well as by customer loyalty. Like CDON Marketplace, Nelly’s growth drives volume for Qliro Financial Services.   Qliro Financial Services launched new servicesQliro Financial Services increased its operating income by 28 per cent to SEK 56 million and operating profit before depreciation, amortization and impairment increased to SEK 11 million in the quarter. We continue to launch new services, and private loans were gradually introduced in Sweden during the quarter. Increased cash flow in Health and Sports Nutrition GroupNet sales for Health and Sports Nutrition Group decreased by 5 per cent to SEK 183 million during the quarter. Bodystore (health food) and Fitness Market Nordic (wholesale) are growing, but sales decreased for Gymgrossisten in Sweden. We continue to focus on cash flow, which increased to SEK 53 million for the first nine months. As previously announced, we are looking for potential partnerships and evaluating strategic alternatives to create additional shareholder value.   Leading platform for digital commerceQliro Group’s goal is to be the leading Nordic platform for digital commerce with complementary financial services. The focus is on CDON Marketplace, Nelly and Qliro Financial Services. The strategy for Qliro Financial Services is to create a finance company with a strong offer of payment and financial services that simplifies the everyday lives of consumers. The focus is on launching attractive, customer-friendly and innovative financial services. We take additional advantage of the relationships and business volume generated through the Group’s e-commerce resulting in low customer acquisition costs. At the same time we ensure that our e-tailers offer simple and efficient payment methods with good conversion rates. Qliro Financial Services extends the relationship with consumers after their online purchases. This increases customer loyalty and provides an opportunity to offer new services. The e-commerce market is changing quickly. During the year, our confidence has been boosted in our strategic focus on expanding the marketplace, strengthening our own fashion brands, more efficient logistics, taking advantage of data-driven customer relationships and expanding our role in the value chain with financial services. We continue to implement our strategy with continuous improvements and investments. Stockholm, October 2017Marcus Lindqvist, President and CEO LONG-TERM FINANCIAL TARGETSQliro Group’s long-term financial targets are:CDON Marketplace · Reach a level of organic growth in gross merchandise value of an average of 10 per cent per year. · Generate operating profit before depreciation, amortization and impairment of 1-2 per cent of gross merchandise value.       Fashion (Nelly and NLYMan) · Reach a level of organic growth of an average of 8 per cent per year. · Generate operating margin before depreciation, amortization and impairment of at least 6 per cent.   Qliro Financial Services · Reach an operating profit before depreciation, amortization and impairment of at least SEK 150 million by 2019.
