Nickel Mountain Group (“NMG”) puts further development costs relating to Rönnbäcken nickel project (“RNP”) on hold

As previously informed, NMG has during the first quarter of 2015 looked in to the RNP magnetite concentrate by-product issue more in depth. A global leading steel industry consultancy firm submitted a report at the end of April 2015. The report suggested that NMG cannot rely on selling the magnetite by-product as a substitute for iron ore, but needs to invest significant amounts in order to produce a value added product based on the magnetite. As stated in the Q1 2015 report the most favored value adding option would be  to construct a plant for producing merchant pig iron (“MPI”). NMG would potentially be able to produce and sell up to 1.1 million tons per annum of MPI. This would correspond to some 10% of the available net exports on the global market. The surplus electricity generated would in such a case amount to almost 1 billion kWh per annum (1 TWh). The capital expenditure would be approximately 800 MUSD for such a facility. This is an increase by  50%  compared to the capex estimate of 1.6 billion USD performed by consulting firm SRK in 2011 – 2012. The latter report was for  RNP as a stand alone nickel project.   The Board of Directors and management of NMG have thorougly considered the information received and consequently arrived at the following conclusions:  · The suggested commercialization option of the by-product makes the whole project more capital intensive and complex than earlier anticipated. · If the project shall be restarted, the pre-feasibility study (“PFS”) would need to be redesigned to include the MPI plant and the electricity generation. · The future nickel price would need to be significantly  higher than today in order to generate a fair return on a potentially redesigned RNP-investment.  All these issues listed above combined with the continued and repeated challenges of the various permits awarded by the Swedish Chief Mine Inspector,  makes it necessary for  NMG to reconsider its RNP project approach. This will take time and involvement of partners.  To conclude, NMG has decided to temporarily discontinue the ongoing Pre-Feasibility Study and to put further development costs on hold. This decision also necessitates an adjustment in the group balance sheet of the immaterial fixed assets. The whole RNP-project is therefore impaired by approximately 75%  with immediate effect. This results in an impairment charge estimated at MSEK 82, which is booked in the second quarter of 2015.  Group equity amounted to MSEK 159.8 as at end of March 2015. Remaining group equity after the impairment charge will therefore proforma amount to MSEK 78 corresponding to approximately SEK 0.86 SEK per share. The size of the impairment charge is of preliminary nature at this stage, and NMG will review its internal valuation models, and arrive at a final figure in the Q2 2015 report in August. The write-down will also be reflected in the Parent company balance sheet, where the value of the subsidiary shares and receivables from subsidiaries will need to be adjusted, and on subsidiary level loans from the Parent company will be largely converted to new equity in order to preserve a sound financial situation in all group entities. The impairment charge is not in itself tax deductible, but in the longer run if realizing a loss on subsidiary level, a tax asset may arise.  The NMG group balance sheet remains very strong with liquid assets of MSEK 57.8 and external interest bearing debt of approximately MSEK 9 as at end of Q1 2015. It should be added that NMG has for IFRS reasons at end of 2014 removed the claim on Alluvia Mining Ltd/the old board directors with a nominal amount of  MSEK 55 plus accrued interest from the group balance sheet. This has nothing to do with the legal process. NMG believes the prerequisities are favourable for returning a significant part of this claim in the  coming years. The impairment charge does not affect cash flow or net liquidity of the group. Quoting Torbjörn Ranta, Managing Director of NMG: “NMG is a small public junior exploration company appraising one the largest nickel projects in the world. We can definitely not finance the development stage on our own, and even financing the PFS program is  a challenge. The understanding that NMG not only must deal with the current depressed nickel price, but also be able to take a 10% market share of the global MPI trade and produce 1 billion kWh per annum of electricity makes the project much more complex. We simply need to reconsider the project approach together with our advisors to ascertain that we maximize shareholder value in NMG. While we re-analyze RNP we will also review other business opportunities. NMG has, through its major shareholder in Norway, access to a continuous deal flow.

Decision from the Exchange’s Disciplinary Committee

Nasdaq Stockholm’s Disciplinary Committee has rendered its decision in two matters referred to the Committee by Nasdaq OMX Stockholm (the “Exchange”). The Disciplinary Committee has found that Eniro has contravened certain items of the Exchange’s member rules and that Eniro therefore shall pay a fine to the Exchange equal to three annual fees to the Exchange. In the matter regarding the incorrect accounting that was caused by the former CEO, which the company discovered and corrected during 2014, the Disciplinary Committee has concluded that the disclosures and financial reporting of the company has been incorrect as a result of the errors. At the same time, the Disciplinary Committee stresses that Eniro, as a consequence of the CEO’s actions, was put in a distressing situation and that the error related to a question of periodization and a relatively limited amount. In September 2014, Eniro reported its former CEO to the police authority. In the matter regarding Eniro’s adjustment in May 2015 of its full-year forecast, the Disciplinary Committee emphasizes that it has not been argued that Eniro knowingly published an incorrect forecast. Nor does the Disciplinary Committee question the statement that a rapid and unexpected negative trend occurred soon after the report for the first quarter was published. Thus, the matter merely related to a question of judgement in which the Disciplinary Committee has found that Eniro should have made a different assessment and adjusted its forecast already on 24 April when the report for the first quarter 2015 was published.     ̶ Eniro has come to the same conclusion as the Exchange in relation to the incorrect accounting. The company therefore adjusted its accounting already in 2014 and reported the former CEO to the police authority. As regards the adjustment of the forecast, we note that the Disciplinary Committee sees no reason to doubt that the board of Eniro has spent considerable time and gravity on the forecast issue and emphasizes that the company has not knowingly published an incorrect forecast. Further, the disciplinary committee does not question that a rapid and unexpected negative trend occurred soon after the report for the first quarter was published, notes Eniro’s chairman of the board Lars-Johan Jarnheimer.

Concept for hipsters on-the-go wins Packaging Impact Design Award, PIDA 2015

Packaging for trendy people on-the-goWith an increasingly flexible and mobile lifestyle, more people are choosing to eat their meals on-the- go, a trend to which the growing number of urban street food vendors testifies. Modern street food is expected to be exciting, up-to-the-minute and pleasing to the eye. The hot dog, for instance, is gradually giving way to new dishes such as Pulled Pork Sandwiches and Vietnamese Baguettes. This year’s PIDA theme, Style & Smart on the Go, asked of the contributors to develop smart packaging solutions which consider both the practical, as well as the trendy and aesthetic aspects. The winning concept, Raw Food Café, which caters to the growing urban creative class, or Hipsters, was chosen by the jury for its flexibility, simplicity and trendiness. ”Raw Food Café is an obvious winner. The solution embodies the theme Style & Smart on the Go and it is clear that the concept was very well thought through”, says Bo Wallteg, chairman of the jury. BillerudKorsnäs paves the way for young talents PIDA is an annual event arranged by BillerudKorsnäs in association with leading universities and colleges in France, Germany and Sweden. ”Our objective with PIDA is not just about strengthening ties between the schools and the industry, but also about contributing to a sustainable future by investing in initiatives which increase the overall proficiency of the industry,” says Agneta Rognli, Marketing Manager, BillerudKorsnäs. “The students have an innovative perspective and through the competition, we learn about future demands on our industry. PIDA is thus an important initiative for both industry and future packaging designers alike.” For pictures of the contributions, please see:

Bennett Opie announce Bake-Off’s Kate Henry to create new baking-inspired recipes

William Opie, Managing Director at Bennett Opie Limited said “Since the resurgence in popularity of baking we have seen much greater demand for our baking-related products that include, amongst others, Cocktail Cherries, Crystallised Stem Ginger, Black Cherries in Kirsch and Stem Ginger in Syrup. We want to showcase just how diverse our Opies products are and would like to provide inspiration for home bakers. We were therefore delighted when Kate agreed to work on a collection of recipes on our behalf as this will be the perfect way to showcase our brand and to highlight our product range. Kate proved last year that she is the ideal person to devise recipes with interesting flavour combinations whilst ensuring that the recipe remains achievable for the home cook. Engaging Kate’s services and utilising her skills was a strategic decision by the Bennett Opie team. We are committed to developing our Opies brand across all retail channels and supporting the listings that we have in multiple and independent stores. We can’t wait to see, and, more importantly taste, the end results.” Kate Henry said “I was delighted when the Bennett Opie team approached me to see whether I would be interested in working with them. Their products are of exceptional quality and my mind is already awash with ideas of how they can be used in all sorts of sweet and savoury recipes. I look forward to creating, baking and tasting my ideas over the coming months. I can’t wait to get started.” The recipe collection will include seasonal inspirations for Christmas as well as favourites to enjoy all year round.

Centaur Launches Custom Label Soft Chews With Health Supplements

The chews are custom-labelled, meaning that veterinary practices can order the chews to be packaged using their own branding. This reinforces and strengthens client relationships by encouraging customers to purchase vet-recommended products direct from the practice, reducing the amount of customer purchasing power lost to the high street or online stores. The chews consist of a well-flavoured base with a crumbly texture, into which various health supplements can be blended, offering a palatable way for pets to consume important dietary and medical supplements. They are particularly popular with owners who find it difficult to encourage their pets to consume supplements within harder carriers, as the soft chews are more akin to food and easier for the animals to consume. “We’re always looking for ways to innovate the offer we provide to our customers and make their businesses more successful,” commented Colm McGinn, Sales and Marketing Director of Centaur Services. “Not only are the chews a high quality product with excellent health benefits for pets, they also offer practices a new way of engaging with their clients by providing own-labelled products that come not only with the recommendation of their vet but also the trusted brand of the practice.” The chews are launching in five varieties: joint support and a heart-shaped multi-vitamin for dogs; and joint support, bladder support and hairball relief for cats. Additional varieties are in development. For more information call Centaur Services on 01963 350005 to arrange a visit, or for existing customers, contact your Territory Manager.

Tom Harris announces Sprint Car campaign in the US

Leading British stock car driver Tom Harris will make his race debut in Sprint Cars, the US’ most prestigious short oval category this summer. Harris, 26, from Banbury, Oxfordshire, has purchased a front running Bob East chassis to tackle three events (Gas City, Jul 10th, Kokomo Jul 11th and Lawrenceburg Jul 12th) in the USAC Sprint Week in the Amsoil National Sprint Championship before returning in late July/August to compete in a further six events. The switch to US racing follows Harris’ successful debut in the lower Midget category in January and marks the first time in the modern era that a British driver has entered the Sprint Car category that regularly sees top drivers from NASCAR and Indycars. “We talked at the start of the year about making the switch to racing in the US as the best way to progress my career. We’ve won pretty much everything we can here in the UK and had to stop talking about and just do it,” says Harris. “This is a major commitment from Tom Harris Motorsport and my supporters including J Davidson, Neil Stuchbury Motors R&C Metals, Carbody, PRG Utilities, Elan PR and Lucas Oils to make this happen. After working well with Bob East at the Chili Bowl, it was the right move to continue that relationship and we will run the car with a British crew from his workshop. There is a lot to learn but with Bob guiding us, we will get to grips with it quickly.” Harris will return to the UK during the summer to qualify for the BriSCA F1 stock car World Final and will continue to support his UK customers but ultimately sees a brighter future in the US. “From the test in late 2014 and then the Chili Bowl, we’ve seen the huge opportunities available to forge a professional career in the US,” adds Harris. “We’ve reached the limit in what we can do build-wise with the cars in UK and we have won nearly every title as a driver or constructor. Now we move on and take on the best the rest of the world has to offer.”

NCC takes a further step in the development of Mölndal’s new city center

The planned shopping mall, with associated parking facilities, will comprise approximately 70 stores, including H&M, Lindex, ICA and Systembolaget (Swedish Alcohol Retailing Monopoly), covering slightly more than 24,000 square meters.

From the city’s viewpoint, we are eagerly looking forward to what is to come; Mölndal’s new city center,” says Marie Östh Karlsson, Chair of the Municipal Board of the City of Mölndal. NCC and the shopping mall company Citycon have formed a joint venture for the development, leasing and construction of Mölndal Galleria. “Last autumn, we started construction of the office building for SCA and our particular strength is developing attractive urban environments in the form of workplaces, housing, retail facilities and service amenities, which combined will result in a city center for Mölndal that is both sustainable and attractive. We’re now looking forward to getting construction of the next stage under way,” says Carola Lavén, Business Area Manager at NCC Property Development. The project company will be owned equally by the two partners. Citycon will acquire NCC’s share when the mall has been completed and the agreed conditions have been fulfilled. The contracts for the mall and the housing assignment will be registered among orders in the NCC Construction Sweden business area during the second quarter.

NCC and Sörmland County Council in strategic partnership on three hospital projects

The contract comprises the following hospitals: Mälarsjukhuset in Eskilstuna, Kullbergska sjukhuset in Katrineholm and Nyköpings lasarett. The Sörmland County Council have chosen to upgrade these three hospitals as part of a strategic partnering arrangement with NCC. This means that all planning and implementation for the project will be conducted jointly. “With NCC’s expertise and capacity by our side, we feel sure the project can be completed in a professional manner,” says Technical Manager Johnny Niskanen at Sörmland County Council. At Mälarsjukhuset in Eskilstuna, which is the single largest part of the project, some older premises will be demolished, others upgraded and new premises built. The combination of new construction and upgrade will also be applied at the Kullbergska sjukhuset in Katrineholm and at Nyköpings lasarett. “The existing care facilities need to be updated. Together with the County Council, we will be able to develop and build more suitable and modern care facilities which keep the patient in focus,” says Henrik Landelius, Vice President of NCC Construction Sweden. Renovating and constructing new hospitals is also an investment in sustainability. The new premises will have significantly reduced energy consumption and an improved operating cost, the employees’ work environment will be enhanced and a more efficient care process will benefit patients. Strategic partnering is the key to higher quality and lower costs. This comprises an open partnership over several projects with the same team.  The organization’s learning curve will be used optimally and the parties will learn each other’s needs, processes and strategically important investments, thus enabling costs to be reduced, quality developed and production time to be shortened. Ongoing call-offs will be carried out in pace with the start of projects within the framework of the agreement. The first parts will be registered and started in September 2015.

Proact delivers reliable media file storage system to Digita

Digita is responsible for enabling reliable flow of information throughout Finland by providing a network infrastructure for TV and radio broadcasts. Simultaneously, the company also provides wireless data transfer services, builds and maintains radio and TV networks and leases out equipment and broadcasting capacity. The investment was, among other factors, based on the evolution of the media industry. ”We provide services to media companies and mobile and broadband operators, which means that we handle a vast number of media files. We were hoping that the new storage system would, among other things, provide more efficient solutions for handling large files," says Digita's IT Platform Manager, Jussi Haapiainen. The network infrastructure services Digita provides to its clients require high-performance solutions. Therefore, the company’s IT systems must be reliable. “Digita requires systems with high level of availability due to the fact that they provide continuous services with critical importance to their clients. In other words, the infrastructure must always be available,” indicates Proact’s Account Manager, Marko Peltola. The project includes a new storage infrastructure, deployment and Proact Premium Support so that Digita will be able to meet future needs of their business operations in a quicker, more flexible and more efficient way. The objective is to create a long term solution for their storage system architecture, which can be expanded and extended as necessary. This way, the architecture will not stand in the way of Digita’s growth.

Saab Signs Contracts for A26 Submarines and Mid-life Upgrade for Gotland-class Submarines

Saab will construct, verify and deliver two new Type A26 submarines for the Swedish Navy to a total order value of SEK7.6 billion. Deliveries will start in 2022 and be finalized in 2024. Saab will also conduct a mid-life upgrade on two of Sweden's existing Gotland-class submarines, including an overhaul and upgrade of the combat system. The total value of this work is SEK2.1 billion. The two upgraded Gotland-class submarines will be delivered to FMV in late 2018 and late 2019, respectively. Saab has already received orders in 2014 and 2015 for the procurement of subsystems related to these contracts. These existing orders have a total value of SEK1.1 billion. Hence, the total order value related to today’s orders amounts toSEK8.6 billion. The orders are a part of the 9 June 2014 Letter of Intent regarding Swedish armed forces’ underwater capabilities. “Saab will deliver world-class submarines to Sweden. Our ability to work closely with customers, to meet their needs with modern manufacturing and products, is one of Saab’s greatest skills. Saab is also exploring export opportunities to provide complete submarine systems to a select number of countries, plus subsystems across the wider market,” says Håkan Buskhe, President and CEO of Saab. “The A26 will be a unique and high-tech submarine with proven modular design, which gives the platform a high level of availability at a low life-cycle cost. The submarine will have long-endurance submerged performance and excellent manoeuvrability in all waters. Safety is paramount and A26 will be highly survivable thanks to modern underwater stealth technology and a unique heritage of shock resistant design. It is a privilege to lead this development,” says Gunilla Fransson, head of Saab business area Security and Defence Solutions. The Type A26 submarine for the Swedish Navy is the world’s most modern submarine programme. The submarines will be powered by conventional diesel-electric propulsion machinery and equipped with the Kockums Stirling AIP (air-independent propulsion) system. The Stirling system will make the Type A26 very stealthy and difficult to detect. The mid-life upgrade of the two Gotland-class submarines includes improvements necessary to meet future operational requirements. The order also comprises procurement of material, platform modifications, system upgrades and testing.The submarines will be designed and constructed at Saab’s facilities in Malmö, Karlskrona, Järfälla and Linköping, Sweden.

Texas Center for Proton Therapy selects RayStation for Treatment Planning

Texas Center for Proton Therapy is a collaboration of Texas Oncology and The US Oncology Network, supported by McKesson Specialty Health and Baylor Health Enterprises, an affiliate of Baylor Health Care System.  The 63,000-square-foot facility in the Dallas/Fort Worth area will have capacity to treat more than 100 patients per day in three treatment rooms.  It will be the first stand-alone LEED-Certified proton therapy center in the U.S. (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design).  “It is our goal to provide advanced technologies such as robust optimization, PBS IMPT and full adaptive therapy, right from the start of clinical operations.  We believe that RaySearch has a proven track record that can help us deliver on the promise of developing treatment plans with the best technology available today in proton therapy,” says Dr. Andrew Lee, Medical Director of the center.  “We will also utilize the wide area network available at the local Texas Oncology facilities so that we can share information and develop the best plans available for the patients.  We can compare conventional photon plans with proton plans and choose the right course of action,” he concludes. Dr. Lee joins Texas Center for Proton Therapy following almost 14 years at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, where he pioneered many firsts in the field of proton therapy, including treating the first proton patient.  He also served as the first and founding director of the Program for Advanced Technology, and as the Medical Director of the MD Anderson Proton Therapy Center.  “We are looking forward to working with Dr. Lee and Texas Center for Proton Therapy .  They have developed a cutting edge center and we are proud to be a part of it”, says Marc Mlyn, President of RaySearch Americas.  “RaySearch has also been added as one of the preferred providers of radiation therapy planning for The US Oncology Network, which is comprised of more than100 treatment facilities across the US. We are looking forward to a long and mutually beneficial relationship well into the future.” “It is exciting to see such a high-end proton center come to life and to have RayStation® so well positioned to provide the advanced technology it requires. Texas Center for Proton Therapy is now the 17thproton center to choose RayStation® for its treatment planning and this is only the beginning as we are constantly striving to stay at the forefront of particle therapy. We are looking forward to the day Texas Center for Proton Therapy will treat their first patient”, says Johan Löf, CEO of RaySearch Laboratories. The current version of RayStation® supports all relevant proton treatment techniques such as Uniform Scanning, Double Scattering and PBS / IMPT. It also features unique functionalities like Multi-Criteria Optimization (MCO) for PBS optimization. MCO planning makes it possible to plan in a more interactive and exploratory way where fundamental trade-offs can be made in real time by the dosimetrist and the physician. It can help simplify the planning process while improving the quality of the plans. About the Texas Center for Proton Therapy The 63,000 square foot Irving-Las Colinas facility will feature an advanced fixed beam treatment room and two isocentric gantry treatment rooms, each containing a 30-foot tall, 110-ton machine that rotates 360 degrees to enable the most accurate positioning of the proton beams on patient tumors. Physicists currently are meticulously calibrating the proton beam equipment, anchored by a 220-ton cyclotron, to submillimeter accuracy, in preparation for treating its first patients later this year. True to Texas Oncology’s approach in patient-centered care, the new center has been designed to create a positive, supportive treatment experience. Patients undergoing proton therapy will have access to on-site laboratory services and the latest PET/CT and MRI imaging technology. The center will offer a full range of concierge services, focused therapeutic activities for patients, families, and caregivers, and a children’s activities room/learning center.

MTG invests in world’s largest esports company ESL

This investment is in line with MTG’s strategy to complement its linear and on-demand video entertainment services by investing in fast growing digital companies with relevant and scalable communities and content. It also reflects MTG’s long and successful track record of building TV and online audiences for leading international sports brands. Furthermore, MTG is already present in the esports market with its platform and has broadcast coverage of esports on its TV channels. The 74% stake is being acquired from financial investors and the company’s founders for EUR 78 million in cash. The founders and management will retain the remaining 26% and continue in their current positions. Closing of the transaction is subject to local regulatory approvals, and MTG will report approximately SEK 20 million of costs related to this transaction in its second quarter results. ESL’s online leagues and tournaments, such as ESL One and Intel® Extreme Masters, are among the biggest in the world, and have attracted more than 70 million unique online viewers over the past 12 months.  They feature top international teams and star players competing in the most popular games. ESL’s 16,000 hours of live content are made available on Twitch (the biggest online games streaming platform), YouTube and other platforms. See here ( and here ( for video links. Two thirds of esports viewers are between 10 and 35 years old, and 58% of Twitch users already watch more than 20 hours of esports every week. With almost 50% of monthly views, video gaming is also the most watched YouTube category in MTG’s territories.     Working closely with all the major games publishers and developers, the majority of Turtle’s revenues come from advertising and sponsorship for its events, online league operations and broadcast media rights. Turtle also sells merchandise, event tickets and subscriptions. Turtle is expected to grow its revenues by 50% to approximately EUR 50 million in 2015, and report an EBIT profit. Established in 2000 and based in Cologne (Germany), Turtle employs over 300 people in 9 offices around the world. “At MTG, we love sports and we love sports fans. Our TV channels and platforms are home to the world’s leading sports brands, and are watched by typically young audiences. Esports is fast becoming one of the most watched and passionately followed global sports categories amongst younger audiences. There are now almost as many gamers in the world as traditional sports fans, and esports was almost as big as ice hockey in 2014 in terms of number of enthusiasts. However, the average revenue generated per esports enthusiast in 2014 was just over USD 2, compared to USD 56 for traditional sports fans, so this global phenomenon has tremendous potential. This investment is a key milestone in our digital development. We look forward to working with the talented Turtle team to grow the global esports community, and to make this exciting content even more broadly available online and on TV.” Jørgen Madsen Lindemann, MTG President and CEO “When we founded ESL 15 years ago, our goal was to bring esports to fans all around the world and establish it as a global sport.  Today, esports enjoys worldwide recognition and now, together with MTG, it is time to take esports to the next level. We are excited to partner with MTG, who share our enthusiasm for the sport and bring an entrepreneurial commitment to help make this dream come true.  MTG’s extensive operational network in over 100 countries and broadcast sports experience will help us bring ESL and esports to many more places around the world, while allowing us to continue expanding on strong, strategic local partnerships. The ESL leadership team could not be more excited about accelerating the development of the entire esports industry together with MTG for years to come.” Ralf Reichert, Managing Director of Turtle Entertainment Presentation materials and photos will be available from and MTG will host an open conference call today at 09.00 CET.

Scania signs transparency and anti-corruption declaration with Colombia

The Swedish Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Network has been established by the Swedish Embassy in Colombia and developed with the South American country’s Secretariat of Transparency, part of the Presidency of the Republic. Sweden is the first country in Colombia to make this kind of pact. The vision of Sweden within the framework of sustainable business is that all companies should create value and perform operations that promote sustainable development within, for example, economic, social and environmental areas. The Swedish Embassy in Colombia is supporting Swedish companies on these issues and leading a network of CSR with a particular focus on four areas: human rights, labour rights, environment and anti-corruption. The statement of transparency and anti-corruption has guidelines and standards for how companies operate. The guidelines include zero tolerance for corruption, anti-corruption initiatives supported by Swedish companies and a commitment from them to strengthen and implement programs and tools against corruption. “Scania has always had a focus on transparency in all its operations and that is why we immediately supported this declaration,” says Benoit Tanguy, Managing director of Scania Colombia. Scania is becoming an increasingly global company and is developing business in new global markets. A key challenge is to ensure that the same high standards and processes are in place wherever the company operates. “Scania needs to set a good example of corporate responsibility wherever we operate in the world. I think it is very positive that Scania works in partnership with the Embassy and others with urgent areas like these”, says Andreas Follér, Sustainability Manager at Scania.

During the last quarter, the Company has advanced its positions in all of these areas. In addition to efforts to identify partners for the diabetes vaccine Diamyd®, the following were also noteworthy: a) three new studies with the diabetes vaccine Diamyd® (DiAPREV-IT 2 , Diamyd®/GABA, and EDCR IIa) recruited their first patients; b) Diamyd®+vitamin D+ibuprofen has been well tolerated during the first six months’ treatment as part of the DIABGAD study (immunological results); c) additional shares were acquired in the stem cell company Cellaviva, and; d) more shares were purchased in the medical devices company Companion Medical. In addition, a private placement brought in SEK 15 million to Diamyd Medical. Diamyd Medical sees many values in using resources to try to extend the life of and improve quality of life for people with type 1 diabetes. Type 1 diabetes is a life-long autoimmune disease, where the body’s own immune system breaks down the cells in the body that produce the vital hormone insulin. Each day, the blood sugar level is checked with frequent measurements and, each day, insulin must be added through injections or a pump to sustain life. Still, these patients risk severe complications from the disease, both in the short term and the long term. Type 1 diabetes is estimated to cost around SEK 100 billion annually in the US alone and, currently, there is no approved treatment in the market that can interrupt or prevent the autoimmune process. All things considered, this makes diabetes one of the greatest opportunities of our age, from both a humanitarian and a business perspective. New products in the diabetes field that improve conditions for patients have enormous financial potential. The diabetes vaccine Diamyd® is, to the Company’s knowledge, ”first in class” in terms of antigen-based therapeutics being developed for type 1 diabetes. Diamyd® has demonstrated a good safety profile in studies with more than 1,000 participants. In a European phase III study conducted in nine countries with 334 newly diagnosed children, Diamyd® showed an efficacy of 16 percent (p=0.10) with regard to preserving the body’s capacity to produce insulin. Even small improvements in the ability to preserve the body’s ability to produce insulin are considered significant advances in protecting against complications later in life. The Company’s strategy is now, in various smaller studies, to combine the diabetes vaccine Diamyd® with other substances and devices with market approval with the aim of identifying a treatment that synergistically strengthens the efficacy of the diabetes vaccine. Three such studies are currently ongoing in which Diamyd® is being combined with substances such as GABA, etanercept, ibuprofen and vitamin D for children recently diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. In a fourth study with adult patients, Diamyd® is administered directly into lymph nodes, again in combination with treatment with vitamin D. Furthermore, two studies are ongoing with Diamyd® to evaluate whether it can prevent or delay type 1 diabetes in children who are at high risk of developing the disease. Stem cell technology is advancing at a rapid pace. The Company’s commitment in this area builds on the vision of a combination treatment with tolerance induction for the insulin-producing beta cells, paired with treatment with autologous differentiated stem cells to replace lost beta cell mass that could finally mean a cure for type 1 diabetes. Diamyd Medical now owns 39 percent of the stem cell company Cellaviva and is open to additional collaborative undertakings in this and other areas to win the fight against type 1 diabetes. Thank you for your interest. Stockholm, July 1, 2015Anders Essen-MöllerPresident and CEO Diamyd Medical AB (publ) Significant events during the reporting period First patient included in US Diamyd® and GABA diabetes studyThe first patient was randomized and dosed in a pioneering study combining the diabetes vaccine Diamyd® with GABA in children with new onset type 1 diabetes. The aim of the combination therapy is to preserve the body’s residual capacity to produce insulin. New study started with the diabetes vaccine Diamyd® to stop type 1 diabetes in childrenDiAPREV-IT 2 started. In the new study, the second of its kind, the diabetes vaccine Diamyd® is tested to prevent or delay the onset of type 1 diabetes in children at very high risk of presenting with the disease. Immunological results from a study with Diamyd® in AprilDiamyd Medical announced that immunological results from DIABGAD were to be presented at an international diabetes congress (IDS) in Munich on April 12 to 16, 2015. Diamyd Medical received SEK 15 million in a direct issueDiamyd Medical accepted an offer from a group of international institutional investors, previously not shareholders in Diamyd Medical, to issue 2,000,000 new B shares in a direct placement at 7.50 SEK per share. Total proceeds to the Company amounted to SEK 15 million. Diamyd Medical announced that the Company contributes to JDRF initiative to increase understanding of type 1 diabetesDiamyd Medical joined a research initiative aimed at increasing the understanding of the natural progression of type 1 diabetes in order to transform and accelerate drug development for the disease. Diamyd Medical will contribute data from the control (placebo) arm of its European Phase III study with the diabetes vaccine Diamyd®. The data will be made available to the research community in an open access database together with similar data from other late stage studies in type 1 diabetes. Immunological markers affected after six months in a first combination study with the diabetes vaccine Diamyd®A first evaluation, after six months, of immunological markers in DIABGAD was performed. Both anti-inflammatory and inflammatory immunological markers are affected by the Diamyd® treatment. The safety profile is good, with regards to the combination of Diamyd® with vitamin D and ibuprofen, as well as the combination of single or double doses of Diamyd® with vitamin D. Metabolic results, such as the treatment’s effect on the ability to produce insulin, are expected to be ready for presentation by end of 2015 when all patients have completed their 15-month follow-up. Diamyd Medical increased investment in stem cell activityDiamyd Medical invested an additional SEK 0.8 million in Cellaviva AB, Sweden's first commercial biobank for stem cells. EDCR started – first patient included in new study combining the diabetes vaccine Diamyd® with etanerceptThe first patient was included in a new study, EDCR, in which the diabetes vaccine Diamyd® is combined with two other approved agents, the immunosuppressive drug etanercept and vitamin D, with the aim to evaluate the safety of the combination treatment as well as its impact on the immune system in children and adolescents newly diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. With the start of EDCR a total of six clinical studies are now ongoing where alternative approaches with Diamyd® are being tested, either in combination with other agents or by administering the diabetes vaccine at an earlier stage in the disease process, prior to type 1 diabetes diagnosis. Diamyd Medical increased investment in Companion MedicalDiamyd Medical increased its investment in Companion Medical by USD 150,000. This was done in connection with a financing transaction in which Eli Lilly invested USD 3 million in Companion. About the diabetes vaccine Diamyd® Type 1 diabetes is a devastating disease which requires daily treatment with insulin to sustain life. The importance of finding a cure should not be underestimated. Diamyd® is considered to be the world’s furthest developed Antigen Based Therapy (ABT) for treating the disease. Diamyd® has been used in clinical studies with more than 1,000 patients and has shown a good safety profile. In a European Phase III study Diamyd® showed good clinical effect in several subgroups, and a limited overall 16% efficacy (p=0.10) in preserving endogenous insulin secretion. To enhance the overall effect, combination treatments with Diamyd® and other approved agents are being pursued. Diamyd® is easy to administer in any clinical setting. The potential annual market is estimated to several billion dollars. Six researcher-initiated clinical studies with Diamyd® in different treatment regimens are ongoing: · DIABGAD-1 – COMBINING DIAMYD® WITH IBUPROFEN AND VITAMIN DA placebo-controlled study, where Diamyd® is being tested in combination with ibuprofen and vitamin D. The study comprises a total of 64 patients between the ages of 10 and 18 recently diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, and will continue for a total of 30 months. The aim of the combination treatment is to preserve the body’s residual capacity to produce insulin. The study runs at nine clinics in Sweden and is led by Professor Johnny Ludvigsson at Linköping University, Sweden. 15 month results from the study are due in the fourth quarter of 2015. · DIAGNODE –DIAMYD® IN LYMPH GLANDS IN COMBINATION WITH VITAMIN DAn open label study, where Diamyd® is administered directly into lymph nodes in combination with treatment with vitamin D. The study comprises five patients between the ages of 18 and 30 newly diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, and will continue for a total of 30 months. The aim of the study is to evaluate the safety of the combination treatment and the effect on the immune system and the patients’ insulin producing capacity.

Goathland Station celebrates 150th anniversary

Goathland Station today celebrates a significant anniversary , 150 years to the day since the ‘deviation route’ that led to its construction was opened on the North Yorkshire Moors Railway. The deviation route was constructed during the early 1860s as a workaround for the Beckhole Incline – a steep slope which engines were pulled up by a stationary steam engine at the top – enabling trains to run the length of the line from Pickering to Whitby without any additional assistance.  As part of the deviation, Goathland station was built on the site of the former Goathland Mill. “Steep hills always cause challenges for railways, as the wheels are not able to gain sufficient traction to pull a fully loaded train up the hill, and in the moors, this was a particular challenge.  Although the rope-pull mechanism at Beckhole Incline functioned adequately, it did interrupt the journey, which is why the railway was diverted around the smoother inclines around Goathland,” explains Philip Benham, managing director of the railway.  “When the new diversion opened on 1 July 1865, it meant that trains could run uninterrupted between Pickering and Whitby for the first time, although the railway’s owners at the time kept the Beckhole route intact for a further three years and, indeed, the branch continued to operate for many more years.” Documents in the North Yorkshire Moors Railway archive show that the tender for completing the deviation was won by Thomas Nelson for a price of £56,000.  Its implementation required the construction of four stone overbridges, seven stone underbridges and one stone viaduct. Visitors today can still walk the old ‘Rail Trail’, with a recommended starting point at Goathland, where passengers can disembark the train and walk to Grosmont to pick up the next service.  “This is a great walking trail for families, at around three and a half miles long, and mostly downhill through the beautiful North York Moors national park,” adds Philip. The line of the deviation is still fully functional today, with services running daily throughout the summer.  For more details or a timetable, please visit ENDS A selection of pictures of today's Victorian visitors to the railway (Don and Kathryn Holton) are available by following the links at the bottom of this email, or by visiting For further media information or photographs, please contact: Jay Commins Pyper York Limited Tel:         01904 500698 Email:

Electrolux contests the U.S. Department of Justice’s opposition to the acquisition of GE Appliances

On September 8, 2014, Electrolux announced it had entered into an agreement to acquire GE Appliances, a well-known manufacturer of kitchen and laundry products in the United States, for a cash consideration of USD 3.3 billion. Electrolux does not agree with the DOJ’s assessment that the acquisition will harm competition. Electrolux believes the acquisition will increase competition and provide consumers access to a greater choice of high quality products at a wider range of competitive prices. The acquisition is intended to enhance Electrolux scale and efficiencies in order to invest more in innovation and growth for the benefit of all consumers, retailers, employees and shareholders. Electrolux also finds DOJ’s opposition to be wholly inconsistent with its 2006 decision to approve Whirlpool’s acquisition of Maytag – at the time one of Whirlpool’s major competitors on the U.S. home appliance market. “The appliances industry is more competitive than ever,” said Keith McLoughlin, President and CEO of Electrolux.  “We believe this acquisition accelerates consumer innovation, which improves the industry as a whole, and results in more consumer choice than ever.” Electrolux has already obtained regulatory approval in Brazil, Canada and Ecuador. The transaction is subject to filing requirements in a few more countries in Latin America. Electrolux remains confident in its assessment of the competitive merits of this transaction and its favorable impact on consumers and Electrolux therefore still expects the transaction to close in 2015. The transaction is expected to generate annual cost synergies of approximately USD 350 million. The largest are expected to come from sourcing, operations and logistics. Telephone conferences today and tomorrowToday, Wednesday July 1, Electrolux will host a media telephone conference for its legal advisors to discuss its defense and legal options for the planned acquisition. The conference call will begin at 2215 CET (1615 ET).

Dubious impact of interest rate cuts on corporate investments

· Of the Swedish companies, 5 percent actually believe that investment has decreased as an effect of the low interest rates. · Of the Swedish companies surveyed, 11 percent believe that investment has increased. “We need to generate predictability by means of broad political solutions that entrepreneurs and investors believe will apply for an extended period of time. To get the wheels turning faster and jobs being created at a higher rate, there are other factors than interest rates to focus on. A positive view of the future requires stability and predictability. A record-low rate does not signal stability, but rather that we are in an extraordinary situation,” says Lars Wollung, CEO of Intrum Justitia. How have investments been affected by the low interest rates?/European Payment Report 2015 Quick payment means jobs · From the European Payment Report 2015, it can also be discerned that slightly less than one in four companies (23 percent) say that there is a correlation between late payment and their being unable to recruit additional personnel. · Of the Swedish companies, 13 percent say they would be able to recruit if they received payment more quickly. That corresponds to 85,000 Swedish companies that would be able to recruit new personnel. · Seven out of ten companies (69 percent) say that the reason for late payment is a deliberate strategy on the part of the customer. Just as many (69 percent), say that late payments are caused by administrative shortcomings. · In the survey, every second Swedish firm (50 percent) feel that longer credit periods are demanded of them than they are comfortable with. “Our survey confirms that there is a clear link between healthy, predictable cash flows and companies’ ability to grow and develop. It is clear that stable and predictable cash flows result in companies being able to recruit. Consequently, strong factors motivating buyers to pay their debts ought to be high on the politicians’ agenda,” says Lars Wollung, CEO of Intrum Justitia. Intrum Justitia at Almedalen During the Almedalen Week, in which Swedish politicians and opinion makers meet and debate on the island of Gotland, Intrum Justitia will present the results of the European Payment Report 2015 at a seminar at the Donnersska House on Thursday, 2 July at 12:00 noon.

BP Settlement: “Time for Gulf Restoration to Begin”

This morning, BP, the U.S. Justice Department, and the five Gulf states made public the terms of a $18.7 billion settlement agreement regarding the company’s role in the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill. BP will pay $12.6 billion in penalties and damages under the Clean Water Act and the Oil Pollution Act. Collin O’Mara (, president and CEO of the National Wildlife Federation made the following statement: “Today's settlement is a victory for the wildlife of the Gulf. This brings to a close the long legal ordeal that had left restoration efforts in limbo and it gives us certainty moving forward. Now it is time for Gulf restoration to begin in earnest. “The RESTORE Council and the Gulf States must begin the urgent task of returning these waters to a state of health and prosperity, because while the legal wrangling may be over, the disaster continues to impact wildlife. Five years later, dolphins are still dying, sea turtles are failing to nest and millions of gallons of oil remain on the floor of the Gulf. “While the company could have faced penalties as high as $13.7 billion under the Clean Water Act alone, the $5.5 billion settlement will allow significant ecological restoration to occur in the Gulf. The communities and wildlife of the Gulf have suffered greatly in the wake of the largest oil spill in U.S. history—and now, with this settlement in hand, it is essential the Gulf states and federal government ensure that every dollar in penalties and damages be used to restore this incomparable ecological treasure and economic powerhouse.” *** For information on the ongoing impacts of the disaster on wildlife, please read our recent report Five Years and Counting: Gulf Wildlife in the Aftermath of the Deepwater Horizon Disaster (

August is National Children’s Vision & Learning Month: Optometrists focus on Visual Symptoms from Concussions that Block Learning

August is the 20th annual observation of National Children’s Vision & Learning Month ( and a perfect time to shed light on the vision problems associated with concussions that impact academic performance. Shelby Hedges’ concussion occurred during the first soccer game of the high school season. Prior to her concussion Shelby was an avid reader, but afterwards, she had trouble with reading ( and focusing as soon as she started trying to do her schoolwork. After about 1 month it was obvious her difficulties were not improving. A trip to her concussion specialist resulted in a referral to a developmental optometrist ( who helped Shelby return to her normal life as it was before the concussion.  According to Dr. Kara Heying, President of the College of Optometrists in Vision Development (COVD) (, “Shelby was very fortunate to have a concussion specialist who knew where to send her. Our member Doctors often see patients after they have struggled for years with no improvement.”  Kelsey Ransom wasn’t as fortunate as Shelby. Reading was already a struggle for Kelsey and after she received her second concussion playing basketball the change in her academic performance was not as obvious as when she received her first concussion. She had been diagnosed with a Non-Verbal Learning Disorder prior to this concussion and the psychologist had told her mother that her I.Q. was “off the charts,” so her mother thought that Kelsey was just “lacking focus” and she was just experiencing normal “kid” issues when her struggles got worse.  It wasn’t until Kelsey was seen by a developmental optometrist, “that it dawned on us she had residual effects from the concussion” her mother, Lori Harris-Ransom, shared; “when Kelsey was having trouble doing homework, I would tell her, ‘Kelsey you have to focus and concentrate and put in more effort.’ – I didn’t realize she wasn’t capable of doing so.” Kelsey was in 6th grade, reading at a 4th grade level. Lori explains, “She had been complaining for a year of visual issues, we just didn’t know they were due to VISION. We thought it was a learning issue.” In addition, Kelsey shared that one of her teachers would actually chastise her for not paying attention because she was writing and not paying attention to what he was saying; when in fact, she was still trying to copy information from the board before he would erase it. Once she understood her difficulties were due to a vision problem (, she was able to explain the situation to her teacher.  While Kelsey is only halfway through a program of optometric vision therapy (, she is already seeing major improvement. Lori shares, “I am seeing dramatic differences in the last couple of months. She avoided studying and felt so defeated before. She has so much more confidence now.” Before starting vision therapy Kelsey was trying to read To Kill a Mockingbird for school.  As she was improving during her vision therapy Kelsey found it easier to understand the book.  Kelsey proudly shares, “I did not have to focus on what to read and I was fully enjoying it. I read it and understood what I was reading.” Both Kelsey and Shelby had convergence insufficiency ( which is an eye teaming problem (also known as an eye coordination disorder) where the eyes don’t work together in unison; often resulting in difficulty with reading. “Convergence insufficiency is very common after a concussion,” Dr. Heying explains; “It is also very common in children who struggle with reading who have not had a concussion.” The majority of vision screenings ( performed in schools and pediatricians’ offices are not designed to test for eye coordination, eye tracking, or eye focusing problems. In fact vision screenings miss at least 50% of vision problems. In addition, general eye exams often do not thoroughly evaluate all the visual skills required for academic success ( The diagnosis and treatment of convergence insufficiency is a specialty field ( within optometry performed by developmental optometrists. A cross-sectional study was performed of adolescents (ages 11 to 17 years) from the Concussion Care for Kids: Minds Matter program at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia with co-investigators from the Pennsylvania College of Optometry at Salus University, Michael Gallaway, OD, FCOVD, FAAO and Mitchell M. Scheiman, OD, FCOVD. Sixty-nine percent of one hundred children examined were found to have one or more vision problems.  In an interview in Infectious Diseases in Children (, a Healio publication, pediatric sports medicine specialist and associate professor of clinical pediatrics, Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania, Christina L. Master, MD, FAAP, CAQSM, discussed the study; “All these children can see 20/20, but the problem is that their eyes don’t work well together. It’s the idea of eye teaming, focusing and tracking. If you go to a regular eye doctor for a vision assessment of visual acuity, the typical tests will not detect these problems that we found associated with concussion.”   In a recent study published in the June 2015 issue of the journal of the American Academy of Pediatrics, Academic Effects of Concussion in Children and Adolescents, it was found that those with higher severities of concussion experienced extended recovery time from symptoms that can interfere with academic performance. These post-concussion symptoms include problems with concentration, eyestrain, loss of place while reading, slower processing speed, headaches and fatigue. These symptoms are very similar to symptoms relating to binocular vision disorders.  “We have known for years that concussions cause vision problems (, and these are some of the types of vision problems that developmental optometrists specialize in treating to help children get back on track with their academics after a concussion,” Dr. Heying explains; “To help parents and medical professionals in managing post-concussion children with their visual symptoms we are issuing Return to Learn: A Guide to Visual Recovery after Concussion (”
