INTERIM REPORT JANUARY–JUNE 2014

Comment by President and CEO Lars Wollung Intrum Justitia performed well during the second quarter 2014. Consolidated revenues rose by 13 percent and operating earnings, adjusted for revaluations of purchased debt portfolios and currency effects, increased by 14 percent compared with the year-earlier period. Earnings per share have risen 28 percent over the past 12-month period, which is well above our financial target of a 10-percent annual increase. In the second quarter we also strengthened our long-term financial flexibility by issuing bonds of SEK 1 billion, as well as by improving several of the terms for our bank financing. As in the first quarter, the Western Europe and Central Europe regions experienced healthy growth in the second quarter. We are seeing a strong trend within purchased debt in Central Europe, while Western Europe has performed well primarily within Credit Management. Northern Europe has also improved its result compared with the year-earlier period, largely owing to revaluations of purchased debt and through enhanced cost efficiency. Our Financial Services line continues to perform well as a consequence of increasing levels of investment for purchased debt over the past few years, with revenues excluding currency effects rising by 16 percent in the second quarter. Good collections and positive revaluations during Q2 generated a return on purchased debt of 21 percent. The level of investment for purchased debt totaled SEK 537 M for the second quarter. Investments for the first half of 2014 were 19 percent down on the year-earlier period, which was very strong. The Credit Management service line saw an improvement in revenues and profitability compared with the year-earlier period, chiefly due to contributions from acquired units and increased volumes from our own portfolios. Within Credit Management we focus our efforts on improving collection efficiency and boosting growth from external clients. We are continuing to develop services involving financing solutions before receivables mature, or in connection with their maturing. This business is a small part of the Group at present, but has good long-term potential to grow and strengthen our existing business. Swedish and Finnish factoring operations developed as planned. Our initiative in the Netherlands to offer a financing solution for e-trade has had a disappointing performance and we are therefore investigating other alternatives for this operation. To improve cost efficiency and strengthen cooperation with our other organization we have also included the operations for financing solutions before an invoice matures within the existing regional organization. Presentation of the Interim Report The interim report and presentation material are available at www.intrum.com/Investor relations. President & CEO Lars Wollung and Chief Financial Officer Erik Forsberg will comment on the report at a teleconference today, starting at 9:00 a.m. CET.

Second Quarter Results 2014

CEO Christian Clausen’s comments on the results:“The second quarter of 2014 was characterised by a continued inflow of customers and strong activity, particularly in our savings area and corporate advisory business. Income is holding up well, despite low lending demand, low interest rates and low volatility, and we continue to execute on our cost and capital efficiency programmes. Underlying costs are down in local currencies and cost to income ratio is 49%. The Common equity tier 1 capital ratio improved by 60 basis points to 15.2%. We are proud that still more households and corporates trust us with their banking business and savings. Our sector is transforming, with swiftly changing customer behaviour in the direction of using services and receiving advice online. We continue the work of adapting to the new demands to earn our customers’ trust as a relationship bank also in the future.” (For further viewpoints, see CEO comments, page 2) First half year 2014 vs. First half year 2013 (Second quarter 2014 vs. First quarter 2014)¹: · Total operating income -1%, in local currencies +2% (-2%) · Total expenses -4% excluding restructuring costs, in local currencies 0% (-3%) · Total expenses +4% including restructuring costs of EUR 190m in the second quarter (+12%) · Operating profit +7%¹, in local currencies +10%¹ (+2%¹) · Common equity tier 1 capital ratio 15.2%, up from 13.1%² (up to 15.2% from 14.6%) · Cost/income ratio down to 49%¹ from 51% (down 0.8 %-point to 49%¹) · Loan loss ratio of 17 basis points, down from 23 basis points (down to 16 bps from 18 bps) · Return on equity 11.7%¹, up from 11.3% (up to 12.0%¹ from 11.4%) +------------+-----+-----+---+-----+---+--------+-----+-----+---+--------+|Summary key | Q2| Q1| ch| Q2| ch|loc.curr| H1| H1| ch|loc.curr||figures, | 2014| 2014| %| 2013| %| Q2/Q2 %| 2014| 2013| %| H1/H1 %||continuing | | | | | | | | | | ||operations³,| | | | | | | | | | ||EURm | | | | | | | | | | |+------------+-----+-----+---+-----+---+--------+-----+-----+---+--------+|Net interest|1,368|1,362| 0|1,391| -2| 1|2,730|2,749| -1| 3||income | | | | | | | | | | |+------------+-----+-----+---+-----+---+--------+-----+-----+---+--------+|Total |2,456|2,501| -2|2,490| -1| 1|4,957|4,996| -1| 2||operating | | | | | | | | | | ||income | | | | | | | | | | |+------------+-----+-----+---+-----+---+--------+-----+-----+---+--------+|Profit |1,070|1,264|-15|1,234|-13| -11|2,334|2,473| -6| -3||before loan | | | | | | | | | | ||losses | | | | | | | | | | |+------------+-----+-----+---+-----+---+--------+-----+-----+---+--------+|Net loan | -135| -158|-15| -186|-27| -26| -293| -384|-24| -22||losses | | | | | | | | | | |+------------+-----+-----+---+-----+---+--------+-----+-----+---+--------+|Loan loss | 16| 18| | 22| | | 17| 23| | ||ratio | | | | | | | | | | ||(ann.), | | | | | | | | | | ||bps | | | | | | | | | | |+------------+-----+-----+---+-----+---+--------+-----+-----+---+--------+|Operating |1,125|1,106| 2|1,048| 7| 10|2,231|2,089| 7| 10||profit¹ | | | | | | | | | | |+------------+-----+-----+---+-----+---+--------+-----+-----+---+--------+|Operating | 935|1,106|-15|1,048|-11| -8|2,041|2,089| -2| 1||profit | | | | | | | | | | |+------------+-----+-----+---+-----+---+--------+-----+-----+---+--------+|Risk | 876| 880| 0| 853| 3| 6|1,756|1,707| 3| 6||-adjusted | | | | | | | | | | ||profit¹ | | | | | | | | | | |+------------+-----+-----+---+-----+---+--------+-----+-----+---+--------+|Diluted EPS | 0.18| 0.21| | 0.20| | | 0.39| 0.39| | ||(cont. | | | | | | | | | | ||oper.), EUR | | | | | | | | | | |+------------+-----+-----+---+-----+---+--------+-----+-----+---+--------+|Diluted EPS | 0.17| 0.21| | 0.19| | | 0.38| 0.39| | ||(total | | | | | | | | | | ||oper.), EUR | | | | | | | | | | |+------------+-----+-----+---+-----+---+--------+-----+-----+---+--------+|Return on | 12.0| 11.4| | 11.5| | | 11.7| 11.3| | ||equity¹, % | | | | | | | | | | |+------------+-----+-----+---+-----+---+--------+-----+-----+---+--------+|Return on | 10.0| 11.4| | 11.5| | | 10.7| 11.3| | ||equity, % | | | | | | | | | | |+------------+-----+-----+---+-----+---+--------+-----+-----+---+--------+ Exchange rates used for Q2 2014 for income statement items are for DKK 7.46, NOK 8.28 and SEK 8.96, see also Note 1.Net impact from currency fluctuations between Q2 2014 and Q1 2014 was insignificant.¹) Excluding restructuring costs in Q2 2014 of EUR 190m.²) Previously estimated CET1 ratio.³) Key figures for continuing operations, following the divestment of the Polish banking, financing and life insurance operations.

The EBITDA margin, excluding non-recurring items, was stable at 35.3 percent (35.3). · Operating income, excluding non-recurring items, decreased 10.4 percent to SEK 6,347 million (7,086), explained by lower income from the associated companies MegaFon and Turkcell. · Net income attributable to owners of the parent company decreased 12.1 percent to SEK 3,545 million (4,031). · Earnings per share amounted to SEK 0.82 (0.93). · Free cash flow decreased to SEK 2,469 million (4,462), due to higher working capital and cash CAPEX. · Group net sales outlook for 2014 is changed, while guidance on EBITDA margin and CAPEX is reiterated. Comments by Johan Dennelind,President and CEO ”I am pleased to present the first interim report reflecting our new country based operating model implemented in April. In the second quarter, group profitability remained steady with an underlying EBITDA margin of 35.3 percent. Net sales continued to be affected by lower equipment sales, while group service revenues were stable. Our strategic framework was further outlined during the spring, with a clear aim to enhance our core operations and also explore opportunities in closely related areas. In early July, we took an important step in our targeted direction by announcing the acquisition of Tele2’s Norwegian operations. The transaction is a great strategic fit and will reinforce our number-two position in the country, enhance our customer offerings and generate significant cost synergies. In order to have the most satisfied and loyal customers, there is a need to further simplify our operations and transform legacy to create agility and cost efficiency across our company. Demand for mobile data services remains strong and it is important for us to monetize on this opportunity. We continue to develop our data-centric price models and see further positive effects from customers migrating to new price plans. In this context it is encouraging to note that the number of subscriptions increased and churn decreased in all of our Nordic mobile operations in the second quarter. In Sweden, net sales remained stable compared to last year and underlying EBITDA margin improved slightly to 39.8 percent, supported by solid consumer opera­tions and cost saving activities. We continue to expand 4G and fiber coverage by investing SEK 5 billion annually over a three year period to ensure our customers a superior internet experience. In region Europe, a key priority for us is to improve competitive positions in our Nordic and Baltic markets. In Spain, margin recovered in the second quarter, but the business remains sub-scale with a market share around 7 percent. Competition is fierce, forced by a strong convergence trend that puts pressure on our mobile-only business. Consequently, we are reviewing our future presence in the Spanish market. In Eurasia our new management team has increased focus on governance, control and new business initiatives. The region continues to deliver strong profitability, with an EBITDA margin improving to 54.4 percent, supported by solid development in Kazakhstan and Nepal. Organic revenue growth was 7 percent, propelled by 35 percent growth in data revenues which now accounts for 14 percent of sales in the region. Creating a long term sustainable business is a central part of our daily agenda. We have continued to roll out our anti-corruption awareness and training across the company during the quarter. Further, we have engaged in dialogue with key stakeholders on Freedom of Expression in several of our Eurasian countries. As a result of lower revenues in Spain, mainly equipment related, we revise our full-year organic net sales outlook from previously flat to slightly below the level in 2013. We reiterate our forecast of EBITDA margin at around last year’s level and CAPEX-to-sales of around 15 percent.”  Questions regarding the reportsTeliaSonera ABInvestor RelationsSE–106 63 Stockholm, SwedenTel. +46 8 504 550 00www.teliasonera.com TeliaSonera AB discloses the information provided herein pursuant to the Swedish Securities Markets Act and/or the Swedish Financial Instruments Trading Act.

Second quarter 2014 results

On 2 June 2014, Det norske announced that the Company had entered into an agreement to acquire Marathon Oil Norge for a cash consideration of USD 2.1 billion. The effective date of the transaction is 1 January 2014 and it is expected to close during the fourth quarter of 2014, subject to regulatory approvals.   After the transaction, Det norske will have 202 million barrels of oil equivalents in proven and probable (2P) reserves (year-end 2013). Furthermore, the combined company will have contingent resources amounting to 101 million barrels of oil equivalents, excluding the resources from the Johan Sverdrup field. Further identified upside in Marathon Oil Norge’s portfolio is estimated at approximately 80 million barrels of oil equivalents. Combined 2013 production for the two companies amounted to approximately 84 000 barrels of oil per day, making Det norske one of the largest listed independent E&P companies in Europe in terms of output. Ivar Aasen The key engineering and construction activities in the Ivar Aasen project are on schedule, with production start-up expected in the fourth quarter of 2016. In June, Det norske signed a unitisation agreement for the development of the Ivar Aasen field on the Utsira High in the North Sea, securing the company a 34.78 percent ownership in the field. Estimated reserves have increased by about 35 percent following the unitisation and the processing of new ocean-bed seismic. Total investments for the Ivar Aasen development are estimated at NOK 27.4 billion (nominal value), unaltered compared to the Plan for Development and Operation (PDO). Johan Sverdrup The Johan Sverdrup licensees have entered into negotiations regarding a unitisation agreement, and the Plan for Development and Operation (PDO) is expected to be reviewed by the Storting during the spring session of 2015. Aker Solutions has been awarded the main contract for the pre-engineering of the platform unit, and a letter of intent for delivery of two of the planned steel jackets for the Johan Sverdrup development has been signed with Kværner. The jacket for the riser platform is due for delivery in the summer of 2017, and the jacket of the drilling platform will be delivered in the spring of 2018.  Exploration In the second quarter, the company’s costs related to exploration amounted to NOK 304 million, of which NOK 123 million have been entered as exploration expenses. Financing Det norske has secured a fully-committed and underwritten loan facility for the full cash consideration in connection with the acquisition of Marathon Oil Norge. On 8 July, the company signed a reserve-based lending facility (RBL facility). This facility is a senior secured seven-year USE 3.0 billion lending facility. This includes an additional uncommitted accordion option of USD 1.0 billion, and will replace the USD 2.2 billion acquisition bridge facility upon closing of the Marathon Oil Norge acquisition. This will also refinance Det norske’s current revolving credit facility. As an integral component of the company’s long-term financing plan, Det norske will strengthen its equity by issuing the NOK equivalent of USD 500 million in new equity through a rights issue. The company’s largest shareholder, Aker ASA, has pre-committed to subscribe for its 49.99 per cent pro rata share. The remaining offer shares (50.01 per cent) are fully underwritten by a consortium of banks. With this equity issue, Det norske has secured the financing of its current work program until start-up of production from the Johan Sverdrup field. The acquisition of Marathon Oil Norge will increase Det norske’s financial robustness and its ability to absorb the impact of any changes in future capital expenditure. This will also improve the company’s credit profile and reduce the cost of capital. Other eventsA new executive management team has now been appointed, and the new positions will take effect when the integration of Marathon Oil Norge has been completed. Karl Johnny Hersvik will continue as CEO, leading a team of eleven executive vice presidents. These are presented on the company’s internet site. Financials Det norske oljeselskap reported revenues of NOK 454 (286) million in the second quarter, where petroleum revenues account for NOK 143 million and other revenues account for NOK 311 million, relating to gain from two asset swaps resulting in a 40% ownership in PL457. Exploration expenses amounted to NOK 123 (271) million, contributing to an operating gain of NOK 119 (-277) million. Net financial expenses were NOK -146 (-49) million. Net result for the second quarter was NOK 167 (-41) million, following a tax income of NOK 193 (284) million. The equity ratio as at end of Q2 2014 was 28.1 percent (37.7).

Adjusted for exchange rate impact as well as for divested and closed operations, revenue fell by approximately 2.9% · Gross margin 19.3% a 0.3 percentage point increase compared to Q2 2013 (19.0%) · EBIT €1.4 million compared to €2.9 million in Q2 2013.

January – June 2014 financial highlights · Net revenue €312.1 million, a 7.4% decrease compared to the same period 2013 (€336.9 million). Adjusted for exchange rate impact as well as for divested and closed operations, revenue increased by approximately 0.2% · Gross margin 20.0%, flat compared to the same period 2013 (20.0%) · EBIT €6.8 million compared to €8.9 million in the same period 2013 · EPS 0.0 Euro cents compared to 0.2 Euro cents in the same period 2013 Key highlights · Divestments and closures had a significant impact on reported revenue in the quarter · EBIT margin in core CRM business improved by 0.9 percentage points in Q2 2014, from 1.6% to 2.5%, excluding the one-time cost for the re-domiciliation · Strengthening performance in Chile is a top priority for 2014 · Subject to shareholder approval, Transcom will carry out a re-domiciliation to Sweden this year, given the benefits of such a move for the Group and its shareholders. Comments from the President and CEO While I am pleased with the profitability improvement in our core business, strengthening our performance in Chile is a key priority for 2014, which I expect will yield margin improvements this year. Divestments and closures that we have completed during the past year had a significant impact on our reported revenue. While profitability enhancement is currently our top priority, our goal is to continue growing revenue at least in line with overall market growth. Subject to shareholder approval, we will carry out a re-domiciliation from Luxembourg to Sweden this year, given the benefits of such a move for the Group and its shareholders. Transcom’s primary focus area for 2014 is to strengthen margins. We have consequently focused on optimizing capacity utilization in our existing contact centers rather than investing in new capacity for expansion. I am pleased to see the margin improvements we have achieved in our North America & Asia Pacific and North Europe operations. While these profitability enhancements are positive, we continue to face challenges in our Latin American operations, particularly in Chile.  Addressing these is currently our most important priority. We closed the Valdivia site at the end of 2013, in response to falling volumes in the country. Since then, we have been working to address decreasing seat utilization and unsatisfactory efficiency levels at our remaining Chilean site in Concepcion. We will continue to focus on growing revenue with domestic clients, with the objective of reaching break-even in Chile later this year. We are making progress and are optimistic that we will reach our targets. In the North America & Asia Pacific region, we aim to continue improving results through increased efficiency and business development. Revenue impacted by divestments in the CMS business and lower call volumes On a like-for-like basis, adjusting for the effects summarized below, revenue fell by 2.9% compared to Q2 2013. The reported €14.5 million revenue decrease compared to Q2 2013 is comprised of: · €-5.6 million: divestments and site closures that Transcom completed during the year in order to exit non-core areas and focus on the core CRM business in prioritized geographies. The most significant actions impacting the revenue comparison are the sale of a number of CMS units, the sale of our Belgian operations, and the closure of the Valdivia site in Chile. The closure of the loss-making Danish CRM unit also impacted negatively on revenue. · €-4.0 million: negative currency impact. · €-4.9 million: mainly due to lower volumes in Iberia & Latam (Chile), North Europe, and North America & Asia Pacific. Improved profitability in our core customer care business The EBIT margin in our core CRM business improved by 0.9 percentage points, from 1.6% to 2.5%, excluding the one-time cost for the re-domiciliation. This was driven by improvements in the North America & Asia Pacific and North Europe regions. Reported EBIT for the Group in Q2 2014, including the CMS business, amounted to €1.4 million (€2.9 million in Q2 2013). EBIT this quarter was impacted by a €1.1 million cost related to the re-domiciliation, and a €1.3 million capital loss as a result of divestments (CMS Poland, CMS Czech and CMS Austria). SG&A costs as a proportion of revenue have decreased, mainly due to divestments and cost savings, excluding the cost related to the re-domiciliation. The divestment of CMS Austria (subject to regulatory approval) completes the strategic review of our CMS business. A number of country units have already been divested. Other units, which are characterized by services that can be efficiently delivered within the context of our core CRM business, have been restructured and integrated with Transcom’s customer care operations. Transcom’s Board of Directors is convinced that the timing is now right for carrying out a re-domiciliation of the parent company of the Transcom Group to Sweden, given the benefits of such a move for the Group and its shareholders: Transcom’s legal domicile will be aligned with the domicile of its owners, as the majority of Transcom’s shareholders are Swedish; general meetings will be held in Sweden, facilitating shareholder participation; Transcom will no longer be bound by dual legal systems, lowering costs and simplifying the execution of corporate actions; and Transcom’s listing set-up will also be simplified, as we can abandon the SDR system and establish one class of shares. We plan to present the merger plan shortly after the release of this Q2 2014 interim report. The statutory merger and the re-domiciliation are expected to be concluded during the fourth quarter of 2014, subject to shareholder approval.

Another study demonstrates that probiotics from Probi can enhance iron absorption among women of childbearing potential

A recently announced mealtime study shows that intake of one of Probi’s bacterial strains, Lactobacillus plantarum DSM 9843, can increase the absorption of iron, which can reduce the risk of iron deficiency. Another study has now confirmed this result. The absorption of iron from capsules with and without Lactobacillus plantarum DSM 9843, respectively, which was used in the study now reported, demonstrates the same result as in the mealtime study announced on 10 June 2014. The conclusion of the two studies is that intake of freeze-dried Lactobacillus plantarum DSM 9843 in capsule form can significantly improve the absorption of iron among women of childbearing potential. BackgroundIron deficiency and low levels of iron are common among children, adolescents and women of childbearing potential, both in the western world and in developing countries. This can lead to iron deficiency anaemia, with decreased cognition and a poorer immune system as a result. Menstruating women have a considerable need for iron and often lack a sufficiently high intake of iron and/or eat a diet with low iron content. When iron deficiency occurs, the body can increase its absorption of iron, but often not to a degree that is sufficient for the deficiency to disappear. This means that there is a large need for products that promote iron absorption. One alternative for people with iron deficiency is to take medication with a high iron content, but these often have side-effects in the form of gastric discomfort. Taking Lactobacillus plantarum DSM 9843 (LP299V®), which is contained in ProViva, GoodBelly and Probi Mage®, has earlier been demonstrated to reduce gastric problems. The studyWomen aged 19-45 ate meals with or without a capsule with freeze-dried Lactobacillus plantarum DSM 9843. The absorption of iron from the meals was measured using stable iron isotopes. The result of the study, which was conducted by a research group headed by Lena Hulthén, professor of clinical nutrition at Gothenburg University, demonstrated that the absorption of iron from meals containing Lactobacillus plantarum DSM 9843 was significantly higher than absorption from meals without probiotic bacteria. “The results are very encouraging,” says Peter Nählstedt, CEO of Probi AB. “Through two studies with concordant results, we now have clinical evidence of the product benefits. During the autumn, we will now be able to focus on preparing a product launch in 2015 in cooperation with our distributors. There is a great need for a product with bio-available iron, which is also gentle on the stomach.” FOR FURTHER INFORMATION, CONTACT:Peter Nählstedt, CEO, Probi, tel +46 46 286 89 23 or mobile +46 723 86 99 83, e-mail: peter.nahlstedt@probi.seGun-Britt Fransson, Vice President Research & Development, Probi, tel +46 46 286 89 74 or mobile +46 705 95 73 27, e-mail: gun-britt.fransson@probi.se ABOUT PROBIProbi AB is a Swedish publicly traded biotechnology company that develops effective and well-documented probiotics.

Stadshypotek’s Interim Report January – June 2014

JANUARY – JUNE 2014 COMPARED WITH JANUARY – JUNE 2013Stadshypotek’s operating profit increased by 1%, or SEK 60m, to SEK 4,145m (4,085). Net interest income rose by SEK 188m to SEK 4,827m (4,639). SEK 517m (460) of the net interest income was attributable to the branch in Norway, SEK 186m (157) to the branch in Finland and SEK 103m (75) to the branch in Denmark. Excluding the branches, net interest income increased by SEK 74m, mainly due to higher lending volumes to both the private and corporate markets. The increase in net interest income at the Norwegian branch was also mainly attributable to higher lending volumes to both the private and corporate markets. The increase in net interest income at the Finnish branch can mainly be explained by higher lending volumes to the corporate market, while at the Danish branch it was mainly due to an increase in lending volumes to the private market. Net gains/losses on financial transactions decreased to SEK 82m (97). Expenses rose by SEK 113m to 757m (644). This was mainly due to an increase of SEK 89m in the compensation paid to the parent company for the services performed by the branch operations in Sweden on behalf of Stadshypotek in relation to the sale and administration of mortgage loans. Net loan losses totalled SEK 4m (4). Before deduction of the provision for probable loan losses, the volume of impaired loans was SEK 247m (233). Of this amount, non-performing loans accounted for SEK 195m (141), while SEK 52m (92) related to loans on which the borrowers pay interest and amortisation, but which are nevertheless considered impaired. There were also non-performing loans of SEK 708m (1,013) that are not classed as being impaired loans. After deductions for specific provisions totalling SEK -34m (-43) and collective provisions of SEK -4m (-4) for probable loan losses, impaired loans totalled SEK 209m (186). GROWTH IN LENDINGLoans to the public increased by 8%, or SEK 70bn, compared to the end of the corresponding period in the previous year, and stood at SEK 995bn (925). In Sweden, loans to the public increased by 6%, or SEK 53bn, to SEK 863bn (810). Lending to the private market in Sweden increased by around 5%, or SEK 29bn, to SEK 561bn (532), which was in line with general market trends. FUNDINGDuring the first six months of the year, covered bonds to the value of SEK 73bn were issued (95), with issues of covered bonds from Stadshypotek’s benchmark series accounting for SEK 41.6bn (59.1).

A UK entrepreneur has brought a new form of online food ordering to the table with the launch of an intelligent and cost effective software solution for restaurants, takeaways and other food outlets. Offering businesses the chance to pay a one-off license fee in exchange for a lifetime service, Food Ordering UK (http://www.food-ordering.co.uk/) is a revolutionary world first. Smart, fast and cost effective, the innovative new system is designed to maximise profits in bars, bistros, restaurants and kitchens, increase productivity and offer customers an exceptional online ordering experience. Denis Kondopoulos, Project Manager, says “Food Ordering UK was developed when I was trying to help a restaurateur friend of mine find a food ordering service that did not demand hefty commissions or ongoing maintenance fees. After extensive research, I realised that such a thing simply did not exist. This inspired me to create a system that filled the gap and offered business owners an efficient and affordable alternative to the profit draining market leaders.” Unlike its software-as-a-service and commission based competitors, Food Ordering UK demands no monthly fees, commission or ongoing renewal payments. All technical support is offered as an on-demand paid service which means that clients only pay for what they need, when they need it. This gives businesses complete control over their orders and ensures that profits remain in their pockets rather than those of their food ordering service provider. Flexible and efficient, the innovative new system is ideal for startups, chains and independent businesses alike. Featuring a self-service administration system, managers have the power to change photos, menu items and prices as required. Customer usability is also exceptional, utilising a simple ‘select and pay’ process to offer peckish patrons fuss free ordering at their fingertips. Integrated with mobile compatibility and the option of using a specially developed app, Food Ordering UK harnesses the power of modern technology to offer its clients and their customers an unmatched level of convenience and value for money.  With the capacity to deliver orders via email, smartphone, tablet, SMS, fax, mini printer or ePOS, the food order management process can be customised to suit the unique needs of a business. Customers and business owners also benefit from flexible payment options, including online payment or pay on arrival. The software boasts an array of customisable extras including 360° virtual tour, in-restaurant ordering, foreign language support and data marketing and offers. With transparent pricing and a pre-set hourly technical support rate, the system is a refreshing alternative to its profit hungry competitors. From chain restaurants, takeaway establishments, independent businesses and caterers, the system can be customised and branded to cater to the exact needs of a business and its customers. Food Ordering UK is priced at a one-off cost of £999 or £99 monthly repayments spread across 12 months.

Printdesigns Encourages Businesses to be Sustainable at Trade Shows and Exhibitions

Unfortunately not all exhibitions and trade shows are as green as the industry would hope, and the events businesses is miles behind other industries when it comes to sustainability.  This is in part down to the scale of such events, and the electricity required and waste produced, but exhibiting businesses also need to take responsibility and look for eco-friendly options and ways to be greener at trade shows. Printdesigns, the UK’s leading supplier of affordable display stands, is encouraging businesses to be more environmentally conscious in their choices when exhibiting at trade events and expos.  With new sustainable technologies and materials now readily available, there is no excuse for companies to rely on PVC and other display stand production elements which are non-degradable.    Mark Thompson, Sales Director of Printdesigns said, “Exhibitions have a hefty negative impact on the environment, and businesses need to step up and take responsibility for it.  Choosing an eco-friendly display stand is just one simple but effective way of reducing environmental impact, and the green options from Printdesigns certainly do not compromise on quality.  Our range of fabric display stands and bamboo banner stands give the same professional printing results as their less environmentally conscious counterparts, and can even have additional benefits.”  The bamboo banner stand is not only environmentally friendly, it is also durable, hard wearing and has a unique attractive design.  The bamboo plant is one of the world’s most sustainable materials, which is why it is fast becoming a replacement for aluminium and other metals with typically make up the structure of a banner stand.  Printdesigns’ range of fabric exhibition stands are also top of the low-impact list, as graphics are printed onto a natural textile material rather than plastic based PVC and polyester which is made using fossil fuels.  The alternative fabric displays boast a host of advantages, as the graphics are printed onto the lightweight material in one piece reversing the need for unappealing panel joins. Mr Thompson added, “Another factor to consider is the environmental impact of travelling to exhibitions; as our fabric display stands are so light and easy to transport, they can be carried on public transport which is a greener alternative to driving.” For more information about display stands, visit http://www.printdesigns.com

Not only have we delivered the highest quarterly sales in the Group’s history, but also higher operating profits than last year. Secondly, these results demonstrate the benefit of our uniquely integrated and balanced combination of on and offline advertising, subscription and content production businesses. This enables us to monetize rising video consumption levels, and capitalise on the shift from linear to on-demand viewing with our Viaplay, catch-up and broader digital businesses. MTGx is accelerating this development and our clear objective is to be the leading digital entertainment business in each of our scale markets. Strategy delivery on track and in lineBoth Viaplay in the Nordics and our emerging market wholesale channel business performed well in the quarter, and our results were boosted by the content production business. TV advertising market development remains mixed but we grew our online advertising revenues in all markets. We continue to adjust our cost bases to the market development, and to maximize the earnings potential in our traditional businesses so that we can prioritise investments in future growth. This can be seen clearly in the performance of our combined Nordic businesses. Content you loveWe continue to focus on delivering relevant experiences that engage and excite consumers around the world. This is why we have recently prolonged our exclusive rights to Denmark’s Superliga football for an unprecedented six further seasons; signed the new multi-year, multi-platform and pan-Scandinavian exclusive content acquisition deal with Sony; launched our TV1000 Russian Kino movie channel in Israel; and launched our advertising funded eSports service. The quarter ended with the completion of our acquisition of global youth media brand Trace, which expands our presence across all of Africa and to 131 countries in total, and reflects our focus on investing in businesses with relevant content, digital presence and geographical expansion potential. OutlookWe continue to expect higher sales and margin expansion in 2014 for the Nordic pay-TV business. The Emerging Markets pay-TV operations are growing and will also now include Trace’s results but, as said before, we are impacted by the devaluation of the Russian and Ukrainian currencies and we are currently analyzing the impact of Russia’s proposed ban on advertising on pay-TV channels from 2015. Advertising spending trends across our 11 free-TV markets are mixed but we will continue to adjust our investments accordingly and to grow our online shares. Finally, the demand for our own content is strong, and both Nice Entertainment and Trace will contribute to our development moving forward.

Finding Stories at Bath in Bloom

To celebrate its golden anniversary of entering the RHS 'In Bloom' show, Bath put on some special events to earn its title as 'City of Flowers'. Within the city, floral sculptures in golden hues decorated public spaces, and neighbourhoods collaborated to display themed beds covering all colours. Within the windows of Bath's stunning Georgian shop fronts something really special is happening: florist teams have created striking displays to participate in the celebration of flowers. Voted by Vogue in the top 100 boutique shops and handpicked by Glamour magazine as a 'Must See', Bath's exclusive store 'Found' needed something fresh and unique to dress their windows; representing their quirky, chic concept store. Bristol based floral artist, Jules from new floral studio Stories teamed up with Marie Parry of Mim's Flower Shed to create a stunning wild meadow-inspired window box. Showcasing some of the very best British flowers from Organic Blooms; from the stunning blue Cornflower to the neon sunset of Crocosmia. Scented with delicate lavender and dahlia, the flowers smell every bit as fresh as they look. Author Cynthia Occelli said, "For a seed to achieve its greatest expression, it must come completely undone. The shell cracks, its insides come out and everything changes. To someone who doesn't understand growth, it would look like complete destruction." Sometimes total destruction is a form of regeneration and for Jules Laming, it meant an exciting new career path. Dressing the Found window seemed the perfect platform from which to launch Stories. Created from a life changing event, Jules had the idea for Stories: a floral design studio that specialises in sympathy flowers, with a side line in window dressing and events. Stories creates sustainable, beautiful, boutique & bespoke floral arrangements to celebrate the Stories of people's lives in a vibrant homage to their character. "Everybody has a story and Stories is about representing an aspect of that person's story through really beautiful flowers. Found is a perfect partnership, since they are recognised for their unique, artisan feel. Marie and I met at the Tallulah Rose Flower School in Bath, and shared a similar ethos of choosing sustainable, organic flowers to create genuine bespoke pieces." Julie's own story of her mother who passed away last year is a testament to the power of flowers. "Whenever I think of my Mum, there were always flowers around; I wanted something special to commemorate that." Having found a local florist, Jules managed to arrange getting the 'tone' of her mother's sympathy flowers to celebrate her attributes. "It was a stunning arrangement and once we'd removed it from the coffin; it became the centrepiece to the table, which gave my mum presence during her remembrance. Each guest was given a small bouquet from the arrangement to remember my mum. I know it's what she would have wanted." Found is delighted with the collaboration saying, "We're thinking about keeping the window display all year round: it encapsulates the ethos of Found so aptly and is a real talking point for customers. Jules and Marie have created something truly special". To find out more about the wonderful bespoke boutique arrangements Jules can create, please send her an email to julie@stories-fds.co.uk (http://file:///C:/Users/Laura/Desktop/PR/julie@stories-fds.co.uk)

Q-Free acquires Open Roads Consulting to strengthen the ATMS business

Open Roads Consulting is a privately owned company established in 2000 in Virginia, USA. The company has 74 employees and operates mission critical traffic deployments and video based surveillance of critical assets in 30 states in the US. The company generated revenues of USD 12.8 million, EBITDA of USD 0.9 million and EBIT of USD 0.6 million in 2013, and will be consolidated into the accounts of Q-Free with effect from closing, expected to be during the third quarter 2014. The SPA is based on cash and debt free conditions, and no shares will be issued as part of the consideration. Q-Free will pay an initial cash consideration of approximately USD 6.2 million, equal to 7 times the 2013 EBITDA. Further consideration is dependent on financial performance in part of 2014, 2015 and part of 2016, and is estimated to USD 2.5 million. Including earn-out payments, the total consideration is capped at USD 12.5 million. The acquisition of Open Roads Consulting represents a milestone for Q-Free. Over time the company will become a global fully-fledged ITS player with significant presence in the US. The current acquisition is a strategic good match with other ATMS and RUC activities within the group, and Q-Free’s number of employees in the US increases to approximately 100. Open Roads Consulting’s software solutions will be a valuable addition to Q-Free’s offering of ATMS solutions both in the US and internationally. “The world’s biggest market for Road User Charging and Traffic Management is in the US. The acquisition of Open Roads Consulting will provide an organisational platform for further penetration into the US market in all of our three business areas ATMS, RUC/Tolling and Managed Services. This addition to our portfolio will increase revenue synergies for the existing Q-Free activities in the US, and is an important step for Q-Free to become a fully-fledged ITS supplier,” says CEO Thomas Falck. Open Roads Consulting is a leading provider of off-the-shelf solutions, technology integration and full lifecycle support to help clients operate, manage, and protect critical assets. The company has two highly complementary business areas; the Intelligent Transportation Systems Division (ITSD) and the Integrated Security Systems Division (ISSD). Intelligent Transportation Systems Division (ITSD): · Supports public sector clients through the design, deployment and maintenance of real-time systems that enhance mobility and enable the public to make smarter travel choices · Primary product offering is Open TMS, an extensible ATMS solution built around an open, modular architecture designed to support the dynamic traffic management marketplace · Integrated Security Systems Division (ISSD): · Provides critical asset protection solutions for the US military worldwide · Primary product offering is VICADS, a proprietary video management system designed specifically to exceed DoD performance requirements and is approved by the US Air Force for all priority levels of protection “Open Roads Consulting is a company with a strong market position in the US. Teaming up with Q-Free will strengthen our current position, in addition to provide a global reach for our products. We are very excited about the future opportunities and we are looking forward to be working with Q-Free,” says Founder and President Barbara Skiffington. Q-Free’s ATMS business has been strengthened substantially over the last couple of years. Q-Free acquired the US based parking guidance company TCS International in 2012, and followed-up with the acquisition of the Serbian traffic management company ELCOM and a strategic 10 percent investment in Intelight in the US in 2013. The acquisition of Open Roads Consulting is the third acquisition in 2014, following the inclusion of TDC Systems in the UK and Traffic Design in Slovenia into the Q-Free Group earlier this year. In the longer-term, Q-Free expects that the markets for ATMS and Road User Charging will converge into a joint market for Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) - both technologically and commercially. Q-Free intends to play an important role in this market, and will continue to build its position through acquisitions as well as further development of its current businesses within this area.

Magic Cloud Launch an Innovative Primary Educational Tool that offers a Fresh Perspective to the Computing Curriculum

In light of upcoming changes to the 2014 National Curriculum, PlingToys has launched an innovative new educational tool designed to help primary teachers bring hands-on creativity to the Computing Curriculum objectives. Developed for primary school aged children, Magic Cloud (http://magiccloud.co.uk/) offers an engaging, creative and educational platform to explore the world of computing. The Magic Cloud consists of a soft cloud-shaped cushion that plugs into a computer and plastic tags to attach to objects. Using the Magic Cloud, children can make a real object (e.g. a book, leaf or clay model) play a media file (an image, video, webcam recorded clip) in four simple steps. Through computing, children bring their physical and digital worlds together. Magic Cloud is a fresh new take on typical programming tools. With experts warning Computing as an educational subject runs the risk of being a dull, step-by-step class, the imaginative new creation from PlingToys looks set to be both inspiring and educational. Dr Andrew Manches, founder said, “Magic Cloud offers teachers something new and inspiring for young children. Computing is much more than making games or robots move.  We want children to see technology as something tangible and interactive to nurture interest rather than turn children off computing and IT subjects.” Developed to equip children with foundational skills, knowledge and understanding of computing, the updated National Curriculum reflects an increasing reliance on computer technology.  Magic Cloud has been specially developed to help primary students embrace this and take advantage of the opportunities that computer skills present. As well as enriching children’s early educational experiences, developing computer skills at an early age can open up opportunities for children in Secondary education and ultimately lead to successful careers.

IPP Logipal heralds the launch of Pooling Partners

IPP Logipal, one of the leading pallet and box rental providers to fast moving consumer goods (FMCG) supply chains and to industrial sectors across Europe and the UK & Ireland’s second largest pallet pooler, heralds the launch of the Pooling Partners brand by parent Faber Halbertsma Group. All parts of the group, including IPP Logipal, will operate under the single global new brand Pooling Partners and adopt the new ’PP’ logo. Carl McInerney, IPP Logipal’s country director in the UK & Ireland, commented: “As a group we have a long and rich heritage stretching back over 100 years in designing, producing and pooling pallets and boxes. We are uniquely able to offer a wide range of services to simply make it easier to use pallets and boxes, at a lower cost and in a more environmentally-friendly way. Our new name reflects these capabilities and brings them together under one brand that reflects the sustainability benefits that are inherent in using pooling. “Pooling Partners, as the new brand for the Faber Halbertsma Group, perfectly encapsulates the activities of the group from designing and producing reusable and recyclable items to extensively pooling pallets and boxes across Europe. It will help us to convey the scale of our operations and the value that we can add to customers who want to benefit from pooling. “The new brand identity sees a change in colour too. Gone is the traditional orange, replaced by a modern green to reflect our sustainability credentials. “Pooling sees us design, provide, facilitate and execute supply chain systems that reuse, return, recover, repair and recycle. The systems are regenerative but we go further by smart use of pallets and boxes, and by seeking ways to minimise transport by working together across the supply chain. We aim to remove empty transport legs wherever we can to reduce CO2 emissions and thus help safeguard the environment. “We may have a new brand that reflects the sustainability of pooling but we also retain our day-to-day values; quality, simplicity, service, flexibility and value are hallmarks of our business approach. We have based our success on being pro-active and responsive to our customers’ needs, allowing them to concentrate on what they do best. The message from Pooling Partners could not be simpler; Streamline your business. Benefit from pooling."

TRANSPORT CHARITY TO BENEFIT FROM TFL BUS ART

Transaid has been chosen as a beneficiary charity for Transport for London’s Year of the Bus 2014 sculpture trail project. TfL has commissioned 60 sculptures of New Routemaster buses to be painted by established and up and coming artists and displayed across London. The buses will be auctioned off at the end of the year with all proceeds being split between Transaid, Kids Company and the London Transport Museum. The project is part of TfL’s wider Year of the Bus celebrations. The organisation decided to make 2014 the Year of the Bus, as alongside 60 years of the iconic Routemaster, this year also marks 75 years since the launch of the RT-Type bus and 100 years since the world’s first mass produced motor bus, the B-Type ‘Battle Bus’ which carried soldiers to the frontline during WW1. The project which is being supported by creative design agency Wild in Art, will see the decorated buses make up five sculpture trails, which will weave their way through London taking participants on a journey and inviting them to discover the sights and sounds of the city, taking in parks, public spaces and tourist attractions. Gary Forster, Transaid’s Chief Executive, says: “We are delighted to have been chosen as one of the beneficiary charities for such an exciting project. Buses are synonymous with the UK transport industry and the sculpture trail will enable members of the public to find out more about the important role of the bus. “Transaid runs a number of projects throughout Africa which are centred on improving public transportation and so it feels very fitting that the proceeds of this scheme will allow us to keep those running.” The sculptures which stand 1m high and 2m wide will be on display across London from September, with the charity auction due to take place at the end of November.

Handrail Creations Takes On Unique London Airport Retail Fit-Out Project

Multi-award winning company Handrail Creations (http://handrailcreations.co.uk/) continues push the boundaries of conventional manufacturing, as seen in its latest project for a major London airport.  Drawing on their skills, imagination and ‘can do’ attitudes, the team successfully created an oversized traditional pillar post box to be used as part of a retail fit-out display project. Charming, polished and one-of-a-kind, the post pox is resounding proof that the company doesn’t limit its expertise to custom-made handrails. Kenny Macfarlane, founder and manager of Handrail Creations says “Although the project is not within our usual remit, we decided to say yes, and accept the challenge. It's always a good idea to push the guys out of their comfort zone and into a realm of manufacturing problems that they wouldn't normally face. This not only keeps them challenged and interested, but that's what keeps us at the forefront of manufacturing what others cannot.” Combining advanced technology with a genuine passion for innovation, Handrail Creations prides itself on the ability to bring the visions of its clients to life, no matter how extravagant or unusual.  Measuring almost a metre in diameter, the latest creation definitely tested the team’s expertise. The solid tulipwood crown was custom made in the purpose built factory and features intricate details that demanded the company’s full five axis machining capabilities. Yet despite the complexity of the job, the team pulled together to manufacture a bespoke creation that delivered on time, budget and quality. Mark Bennett, Buyer at Edmont Joinery says "Kenny Macfarlane and Handrail Creations worked with us on this bespoke project to recreate larger versions of a traditional Royal Mail pillar box, to cap bespoke display units for one of Edmont’s airport retail fit-out projects. We are very pleased with the quality of the work they produced and impressed that it was delivered ahead of schedule. We look forward to working with Handrail creations again soon." Thanks to its innovative manufacturing approach and capacity to think outside the box, Handrail Creations remains at the forefront of its industry. Whether it’s a stunning timber handrail or an oversized novelty post box, Macfarlane and his team of highly skilled craftsmen have the knowledge and expertise to execute even the most abstract of client requests.

With an operating margin close to 9%, we exceeded our long-term target of 7% and we will therefore update our financial targets in the beginning of October in conjunction with our capital market day. Net sales increased by 7%, which is in part due to the successes we have had with our investment in disc brakes. In total, we have won contracts with several European trailer manufacturers with an estimated value of SEK 650 m from 2014 to 2017, with the majority of this volume coming in the latter part of that period. We are pleased that the German negotiations are coming close to a close so that we can implement the final phase of our restructuring program.

SWECO AB (publ) Interim report January-June 2014

APRIL – JUNE 2014 · Net sales: SEK 2,337.3 million (2,001.7) · Operating profit: SEK 155.6 million (190.6); operating margin: 6.7 per cent (9.5) · EBITA: SEK 167.8 million (200.5); EBITA margin: 7.2 per cent (10.0) · Integration costs for Vectura: SEK 2.8 million · Profit after tax: 108.6 million (136.2); earnings per share: SEK 1.19 SEK (1.48) JANUARY – JUNE 2014 · Net sales: SEK 4,659.0 million (3,919.3) · Operating profit: SEK 367.2 million (324.6); operating margin: 7.9 per cent (8.3) · EBITA: SEK 393.2 million (344.6); EBITA margin: 8.4 per cent (8.8) · Integration costs for Vectura: SEK 11.3 million · Profit after tax: 252.5 million (238.4); earnings per share: SEK 2.76 SEK (2.59) · Net debt: SEK 1,522.8 million (647.9) Comments from President and CEO Tomas Carlsson: - Sales increased 17 per cent during the second quarter, due primarily to the acquisition of Vectura. Operating profit was down due to the fewer number of available working hours. Vectura and improved utilisation in Finland contributed positively to profit. In view of the negative calendar effects, the earnings trend is stable. - During the second quarter, the market in general is characterised by cautious optimism and recovery compared to the weak start to the year. Recovery is slow, however, and the road to a robust growth in demand has pitfalls in terms of the general economic development. During the quarter the Swedish market is somewhat improved, while the Norwegian market is stable. The markets in Finland and Central Europe remain challenging. - It has now been one year since Vectura was acquired, and it is time to summarize the transaction. Vectura is already exceeding our financial expectations, and Sweco is the Nordic leader in infrastructure. We are thus uniquely positioned to benefit from future investments in roads and railways. The integration is completed and we now focus on continued profitable growth.

Saab's results January-June 2014

Statement by the President and CEO Håkan Buskhe:The security and defence market remains challenging and competition is fierce. During the first half-year of 2014, Saab has developed and strengthened its product portfolio. In order to offer products and solutions that our customers want, the investments in research and development as well as cost efficient solutions are key. The business area Electronic Defence Systems launched unique solutions during the period, that give the established Giraffe AMB and Arthur systems leading functionality and design. The interest for Gripen remains strong internationally. The development of Gripen E progress according to time plan and budget and will be delivered to Sweden, starting 2018. The negotiations with Brazil regarding Gripen NG continue and both parties’ ambition is to reach an agreement in 2014. In July, a Memorandum of Understanding was signed with the Brazilian aircraft producer Embraer regarding joint development and production of Gripen for Brazil. During the first half-year, Saab strengthened its position as one of the world’s leading companies in military training systems and received orders from both the Finnish armed forces and the UK Ministry of Defence. Order bookings in the business area Dynamics were negatively affected by the continued challenging market situation, and by delays in customers’ procurement decisions. We see no change in the market situation short-term, but continue to develop our offer to safeguard the business area’s long-term potential. In June, an agreement was reached to acquire ThyssenKrupp Marine Systems AB (former Kockums). This enables the expansion of the naval offer, as announced earlier this year, and makes Saab one of few companies in the world with the ability to develop, produce and deliver comprehensive defence solutions for air, land and sea. The closing of the transaction is planned for July 2014. The Swedish Defence Materiel Administration (FMV) has during the first half-year placed orders for construction and production plans for the next generation submarines and to conduct a mid-life update of two Gotland-class submarines. Also, a Letter of Intent was signed with FMV regarding the Swedish armed forces’ underwater capability, comprising potential orders of over SEK 11 billion. Saab’s order bookings decreased in the period, compared to the same period 2013 where we received development orders amounting to SEK 13.2 billion attributable to Gripen E. Sales amounted to MSEK 10,972 (11,748), a decrease of 7 per cent, mainly due to lower sales within Dynamics. The reported operating income amounted to MSEK 643 (545) with an operating margin of 5.9 percent (4.6). The operating income for the same period 2013 was negatively impacted by a non-recurring item of MSEK 231 attributable to a lost legal dispute. The operating income adjusted for non-recurring items amounted to MSEK 643 (776) and the operating margin was 5.9 per cent (6.6). The business area Electronic Defence Systems reported a positive operating income, while continuing to invest in development of new radar and sensor technology. The efficiency measures announced in 2013 progress according to plan and in total, the number of FTE’s and external consultants has been reduced by approx. 850 since the beginning of 2013. The operational cash flow was negative, mainly due to timing differences in deliveries and milestone payments. During the second half-year 2014 we have more planned milestone deliveries and we therefore estimate that the operational cash flow will be positive. Earnings per share after dilution amounted to SEK 3.80 (2.48). Outlook statement 2014: · In 2014, we estimate that sales will be in line with 2013. · The operating margin in 2014, excluding material non-recurring items, is expected to be somewhat higher than the operating margin in 2013, excluding material non-recurring items. Excluding material non-recurring items, the operating margin was 6.6 per cent in 2013.

Electrolux President and CEO Keith McLoughlin’s comments on the results for the second quarter of 2014

The improvement in our European operations continued in the second quarter and operating income increased significantly over last year. At the same time, the development in North America continues to show a solid trend. We also managed to show good performance in Latin America, in weakened market conditions. In total, the Group’s operating income increased to SEK 1,167 million with a strong cash flow of SEK 3.3bn. A positive impact from the ongoing cost-reduction program in Europe, combined with an improved product mix in such areas as built-in kitchen products, led to a significant improvement in our operating income in EMEA. Market development in Europe continued to show a dispersed pattern, with growth increasing in the Iberian countries and in the UK in the second quarter, while there was a weakening in France and the Nordic countries. We reconfirm our view that European market demand will increase by 1-3% in 2014. As previously communicated, we have concluded a review of our manufacturing operations in Italy. In May, we reached an agreement with the Italian trade unions and authorities, which entails significant cost reductions. The agreement will contribute to our efforts to restore long-term profitability for Major Appliances EMEA. As expected, the mix continued to improve in our North American operations. We have a strong focus on growing in premium segments, such as cooking products and multi-door refrigeration. Volumes of core appliances continued to increase. However, we saw deterioration in our overall sales volumes, mainly as a result of lower sales within room air-conditioning. Sales volumes in the quarter were also negatively affected by a fire at one of our suppliers of components within the refrigeration and laundry segments. The US appliance market continues to recover, driven by both replacement demand and housing, with a total expected growth of 4% in 2014. Our sales volumes in Latin America began to slow already in the second half of 2013.  As the macro-economic environment deteriorated further during the spring, we had a significant decline in sales volumes during the second quarter. The slowdown was further fueled by a temporary negative impact on sales related to the FIFA World Cup. In order to mitigate the weakened market, we have taken actions to adapt and reduce costs. We were also able to increase prices to compensate for currency headwinds and inflation. Although we remain confident that Latin America will continue to grow in the medium to longer term, visibility in the near term is low. The Group’s overall profitability shows a recovery both in the second quarter, and in the first half of the year compared with the same period in 2013. We will continue to launch new, innovative products in parallel with optimizing global production with a strong focus on cost efficiency. This will enable us to continue to generate a solid cash flow and shareholder value. Stockholm, July 18, 2014 Keith McLoughlinPresident and CEO

The operating margin was 15.9% (16.1). · Net income for the quarter amounted to SEK 1,534 M (1,374). · Earnings per share for the quarter rose by 12% to SEK 4.14 (3.71). · Cash flow for the quarter increased by 24% and amounted to SEK 1,963 M (1,589).                          First half-year     Second quarter 2013    Change  2013            2014 Change 2014    12,239 13,964 +14% 23,108 26,268 +14%Sales, SEK Mof which,  Organic +2% +3%growth  Acquisitions +10% +9%  Exchange -509 +210 +2% -888 +319 +2%-rate effectsOperating 1,970 2,219 +13% 3,632 4,076 +12%income (EBIT),SEK MOperating 16.1 15.9 15.7 15.5margin (EBIT),%Income before 1,832 2,073 +13% 3,365 3,782 +12%tax, SEK MNet income, 1,374 1,534 +12% 2,512 2,798 +11%SEK MOperating cash 1,589 1,963 +24% 2,087 2,520 +21%flow, SEK MEarnings per 3.71 4.14 +12% 6.78 7.56 +12%share (EPS),SEK   COMMENTS BY THE PRESIDENT AND CEO“The second quarter and the first six months of the year continued to show a very good performance for ASSA ABLOY, with a total increase in sales of 14% and a very satisfying improvement of a full 12% in operating income,” says Johan Molin, President and CEO. “At 2%, organic growth during the second quarter was a little lower than in the beginning of the year. However, the quarter had one fewer working day than the previous year as well as weaker project sales for Global Technologies. The EMEA, Americas and Entrance Systems divisions grew by a satisfactory 3%, while the emerging markets, for example in Asia, Africa and South America, continued to grow strongly. “Acquisition activity continued to run at a high level, with six new acquisitions which adda further SEK 700 M to annual sales. It was especially pleasing that we were successful in acquiring the Indian company ENOX. This is our first major step in meeting the Group’s ambition to build a market-leading position on the fast-growing Indian market. “Operating income continued to improve, by a full 13% during the quarter. As well as valuable savings and efficiency gains from the restructuring programs, the acquired companies also contributed strongly to the improvement in income. Ameristar in particular has produced very good results, but Amarr and 4Front also contributed significantly. “Continued strong growth came from our many new products. Sales of electromechanical lock solutions increased by over 10% in both Americas and EMEA. Home automation is another exciting development area where many leading companies have chosen ASSA ABLOY’s advanced digital door locks. “My judgment of the global economic trend is unchanged. The world economy is about to improve slowly. Our strategy therefore remains unchanged, to reduce our dependence on mature markets and to expand strongly in the emerging markets, which are expected to go on growing well. Another continuing priority is investments in new products, especially in the growth area of electromechanics.” FINANCIAL INFORMATIONThe Interim Report for the third quarter will be published on 23 October 2014.

Continued very strong license sales · License revenue for April-June increased with 26 percent to SEK 68.7 (54.6) million · Sales for April-June increased with 10 percent to SEK 209.3 (190.9) million · Operating profit EBITDA for April-June was SEK 10.3 (4.8) million · Earnings per share after tax for April-June were SEK 0.13 (0.03) · License revenue for January-June increased with 26 percent to SEK 122.1 (96.6) million · Sales for January-June increased with 9 percent to SEK 386.0 (353.5) million · Operating profit EBITDA for January-June was SEK 1.0 (-12.8) million · Earnings per share after tax for January-June were SEK -0.25 (-0.35) · Cash-flow from operating activities for January-June was SEK 72.5 (61.7) million · ReadSoft has during the second quarter been subject to public takeover offers from Lexmark International Technology and Hyland Software UK, respectively CEO comment: Continued very strong license growth “The second quarter has been hectic for ReadSoft. Both Lexmark International Technology and Hyland Software UK have announced public tender offers to ReadSoft's shareholders to acquire all shares in the company. Despite the great attention that the company has been exposed to in connection with the public offers, I can proudly note that we have handled the situation in a good way. We have maintained our focus and we deliver a quarter that shows strong license growth and much improved results. Our total sales grew, compared to the corresponding period last year, by 10 percent for the second quarter and by 9 percent for the first six months. The vital license sales that is so important for a software company continues to be very strong and grew by 26 percent both in the second quarter and for the first six months. Our cash flow from operating activities continues to be very strong. It is gratifying to see that our EBITDA result has more than doubled compared to the corresponding period last year. Our margins also continued to develop positively and it is evident that the actions we took to improve results and margins have had a positive effect. A gradual change in the reporting of our revenues from our support and maintenance agreements has affected the second quarter’s result negatively compared to the corresponding quarter last year. This effect means no lost revenue but only a time delay in the reporting of these revenues. The recurring revenues for the quarter increased by 9 percent compared with the same period last year and by 18 percent for the first half-year. On a rolling 12 month basis the recurring revenues increased by 13 percent and it is important for our future development that this trend is maintained. The success of XBOUND continued in the second quarter and it is clear that the strategic changes that were made have had a very positive impact on sales in our global markets. During the second quarter it is primarily our larger markets, in France, Sweden and Germany that stand out, showing the way with good growth and profitability. On the product side, we launched the latest version of PROCESS DIRECTOR (7.3) at the international SAP conference SAPPHIRE NOW/ASUG in Orlando, USA. PROCESS DIRECTOR has also been certified for SAP HANA (a new database technology), which means that the solution can be integrated with SAP applications running on SAP HANA. I am pleased how we have delivered this quarter under the circumstances in which the company currently operates. We have worked hard and improved our growth, results and margins, and we will continue these efforts in the coming quarters. We have strong license growth which guarantees further revenue for our organization, our recurring revenues continue to grow and our growth areas develop positively. This shows that ReadSoft is well positioned for the future and we are optimistic about our potential for a continued good development.” Per Åkerberg President and CEO Read the entire report in the attached PDF. Invitation to telephone conference / audiocast for the presentation of ReadSoft's Interim Report for January-June 2014 On Friday, July 18, 2014, at 9:00 CET, are analysts, investors, media and other interested parties invited to attend a telephone conference where ReadSoft’s President and CEO Per Åkerberg will comment on the published report and answer questions.

Interim Report January-June 2014

APRIL-JUNE 2014 (SECOND QUARTER) · Net sales amounted to SEK 223 million (220). · The gross margin was 46.6% (47.3). · Operating profit amounted to SEK 12 million (13). · Profit for the period amounted to SEK 8 million (9). · Earnings per share before and after dilution totalled SEK 0.35 (0.40). · Cash flow from continuing operations amounted to SEK 11 million (0). JANUARY-JUNE 2014 (SIX MONTHS) · Net sales amounted to SEK 464 million (462). · The gross margin was 45.7% (46.3). · Operating profit amounted to SEK 28 million (29). · Profit for the period was SEK 20 million (22). · Earnings per share before and after dilution totalled SEK 0.88 (0.97). · Cash flow from continuing operations amounted to SEK 18 million (34). COMMENT BY THE CEOMidsona’s sales and operating profit were consistent with the previous year, both in the second and first quarters. Several improvement measures were carried out in the second quarter as part of Midsona’s stated growth ambitions. The measures are expected to gradually produce results during the second half of the year. The second quarter was negatively affected by costs totalling approximately SEK 3 million, which are mainly attributable to these measures. The main negative impact on the Group was caused by the strengthening of the EUR against the SEK, as the majority of the Group’s purchases in EUR are made in the Swedish operations. Price increases were announced in the spring, aimed at restoring the gross margin in the Swedish operations. These price increases will achieve full impact from the beginning of the second half of the year, but since the EUR has continued to strengthen against the SEK, further price increases may need to be implemented. Furthermore, staff reductions were made, resulting in the loss of seven positions in Sweden. All costs connected to this were posted during the second quarter. In the second quarter, earnings improved in the Norwegian and Finnish business areas. Both markets displayed growth in prioritised brands and good cost control. From a Group perspective, the currency effect was neutral in Norway and positive in Finland. On the whole, the Group’s prioritised brands performed well during the first six months of the year. Friggs, our largest brand, showed double-digit growth. Dalblads continued to grow in the strategically important sports nutrition segment. New products under the Miwana brand, which was launched at the beginning of the year, were well received by consumers. Tri Tolonen, our flagship in nutritional supplements in Finland, showed growth as a result of successful launches and marketing campaigns. MyggA saw double-digit sales growth, primarily fuelled by the launch of sister product FästinG. Most of the Group’s licensed brands, for which we have sales rights for all or parts of the Nordic region, displayed growth. However, we continued to face challenges with Naturdiet in the weight control segment, which saw weak performance during the year, despite having increased our market share within the segment. We are continuing to build on our core operations in 2014. The ambition is to generate growth for our prioritised brands, to assume responsibility for selected licensed brands and, hopefully, to be able to implement one or more acquisitions. We will also focus particular attention on turning the negative trend around in Sweden. This will enable us to approach our new financial targets and to realise our vision of becoming the leader in health and well-being in the Nordic region.

For the second quarter: · Net sales amounted to 46.1 (54.0) MSEK · Net profit amounted to 0.4 (7.5)  MSEK · Order intake amounted to 10 (7) systems · 4 (7) EBM systems were delivered in the second quarter In the first 6 months we report a 21% increase in sales. Trailing twelve month sales amounts to 218.3 MSEK and earnings amount to 11.7 MSEK. The result includes non-recurring costs in the first quarter 2014 associated with the acquisition of AP&C of 6 MSEK. The order intake during the period amounts to 16 systems and the order book as of today comprises 17 systems. Acquisition of AP&C In February we acquired the powder producer AP&C from Raymor Industries in Canada. AP&C is a leading manufacturer of high quality metal powder and supplier of titanium powder to Arcam since 2006. Titanium powder is an important part of our offering and with this acquisition we have secured access to the best technology for the production of high quality metal powder for our customers. The acquisition is fully in line with our growth strategy and complements our EBM technology and product portfolio. The acquisition was completed on February 11, and is consolidated from this date. Business status We received 10 new orders during the quarter and we see a continued strong demand, particularly from the aerospace industry. The sales of our new large system, Arcam Q20, gains momentum and we have received 8 system orders.In June we launched Inconel 718® as a qualified material for use in Arcam’s EBM systems. With the introduction of the Inconel 718 our customers in the aerospace industry can now further expand the range of components that they produce in their EBM machines. The work to industrialize our technology with the major players within the aerospace and implant industries continue and we can now see good opportunities for volume orders during the year. At the same time, we see that the growing interest and knowledge in Additive Manufacturing and 3D printing creates interest within new segments. This may long term give opportunities for broadening of our product applications. Of the11 systems that were delivered during the first quarter the majority went to customers within the orthopedic implant or the aerospace industry. The cooperation with DiSanto is progressing and DiSanto ordered two new Arcam Q10 systems to meet the demand for finished EBM products. In the beginning of July we acquired our agent in the UK. We already have a support operation in the UK and with this new step we take responsibility for direct sales and support on the important UK market. Growth – organic and through acquisition In addition to the acquisition of AP&C we are in rapid organic growth. We thus continue to recruit qualified employees in order to meet the expectations from our customers. During the period we have strengthened our service office in China, the support organization in Sweden and the sales organization. Through the acquisition of AP&C and through recruitment the number of employees has increased from 55 to 113 since June 2013. We will maintain an ambitious recruitment pace in order to further develop our technology and offering and thus exploiting the present business situation. An order book of 17 systems, increasing aftermarket sales and a positive business situation lays a solid foundation for a continued growth in 2014.  Mölndal, July 18, 2014 Magnus René, CEO The above information has been made public in accordance with the Securities Market Act and/or the Financial Instruments Trading Act.

In this period, revenues have grown with approximately 2.5 times. “It has been a privilege to work with Lindorff over the last ten years. The company has developed from a local Norwegian player to become Europe’s leading debt collection company with operations in 11 countries. Through focus and continued investment in product and productivity development, Lindorff has become the preferred partner for large European banks”, says Hugo Maurstad, Chairman of the Board of Lindorff Group and Partner at Altor Equity Partners, the investment advisor to the Altor Funds. “Lindorff benefits from a strong position in the mature Nordic markets where we have developed a comprehensive strategy and an integrated approach to debt collection.

Beijer Ref AB Q2 2014

Continued positive development for Beijer Ref Quarter 2 2014 · Net sales amounted to SEK 1,870.8M (1,711.9).  · Operating profit amounted to SEK 136.9M (83.4).  · Net profit amounted to SEK 89.3M (50.4).  · Profit per share amounted to SEK 2.03 (1.14).  · The positive trend continued for the second quarter with a growth in sales of nine per cent and an improved operating profit of 64 per cent compared with the corresponding quarter in the previous year. Excluding one-time costs in 2013, operating profit increased by 16 per cent.  · Strong increase of HVAC (comfort cooling) in Europe during the second quarter.  Comments by the CEO Continued positive trend in EuropeThe second quarter of 2014 consolidates the positive trend from the first quarter with a sales increase of 9.3 per cent. The operating profit of SEK 136.9M shows that Beijer Ref continues to strengthen its position as the largest refrigeration wholesaler in Europe. Among our regions, Central Europe enjoyed a good development during the second quarter. The United Kingdom continued to develop positively with both increased sales and increased market share. In the UK, Beijer Ref’s competitive distribution and service concept to nationally operating customers is achieving increased penetration in the market. Holland strengthened its position during the quarter and Germany continues its positive development. Southern Europe accounts for around 40 per cent of Beijer Ref’s sales and in this region both sales and results are also increasing. At this moment in time, Spain is the fastest expanding market in Southern Europe, especially with increased demand for HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning, also called comfort cooling), which drives growth. In the Eastern European market, Poland is leading the development with a significant increase in sales within both commercial & industrial refrigeration and HVAC. In the Nordic market, the trend in the Swedish market has been ‘wait-and-see’, but a strong end to the quarter is a positive signal. Denmark and Finland developed well. Sweden and Norway started the quarter slightly weaker but turned the trend during June and there is reason for cautious optimism in both countries. In the Rest of the World, Thailand’s development has stabilised after the recent disturbances and South Africa is developing according to plan. One contributing reason to the quarter’s results, albeit a minor influence, is the positive currency effects of the stronger Euro, something that must be seen as welcome after a long period with the opposite situation. Increased investment in refrigeration units produced by the companyRefrigeration units produced by the company itself is a growing and increasingly prioritised segment within Beijer Ref. As one of the largest and most modern refrigeration wholesalers in the world, an understanding of our customers’ refrigeration requirements has been built up within the Group. We are transferring this refrigeration competence to a growing portfolio with refrigeration units produced by the company. Our ambition is that Beijer Ref will increasingly be able to offer even more competitive energy-efficient solutions, both with regard to individual standard units and customer-adapted overall concepts with the most modern environment technology. Toshiba increasingly strong brand within HVACThe demand for HVAC (comfort cooling) is slightly more dependent on the economic situation than other operations within Beijer Ref and, therefore, the increased sales during the second quarter within this market segment can be seen as a sign of a continued economic upturn in Europe. Toshiba HVAC is one of the many world-leading brands within comfort cooling represented by Beijer Ref. Like Beijer Ref, the world-leading Japanese high-tech company, Toshiba, has its roots in the innovative company culture of the late 19th century. It currently consists of more than 740 companies with 210,000 employees all over the world. We are pleased to note the development for Toshiba’s products within comfort cooling was strong in all markets during the second quarter. It should also be emphasised that our sales of both Samsung and Mitsubishi enjoyed a similar development. Interesting acquisition opportunitiesWith the European recession hopefully behind us, a stronger market position, increased operating margin, and positive effects of the previous year’s cost savings, Beijer Ref has after the first two quarters of the year consolidated its operation and is well prepared for future acquisitions. It should also be mentioned that after 136 years of operation as G & L Beijer, the Group officially changed its name to Beijer Ref which, as previously announced, better reflects the consolidated operation (ref = refrigeration). At the same time, the Group’s new website was ready with more lucid and easily accessible information. Please visit our website on www.beijerref.com. Per BertlandCEO, Beijer Ref AB  Quarterly report Q2 2014 About Beijer Ref Beijer Ref is one of the three largest refrigeration wholesalers in the world and the leading company in Europe. The Group offers competitive and innovative solutions within refrigeration and air conditioning with customer-adapted products, refrigeration units developed by the company itself and efficient logistics. SalesBeijer Ref increased its sales by nine per cent to SEK 1,870.8M (1,711.9) for the second quarter of 2014. Adjusted for exchange rate fluctuations and acquisitions, the organic sales increase was four per cent. The Group also increased its sales by nine per cent to SEK 3,451.8M (3,175.7) for the period January to June which, organically, is an increase of five per cent. Beijer Ref operates in three market areas: commercial & industrial refrigeration and HVAC (comfort cooling). The Group splits its operation in the global market into five geographic segments: The Nordic countries, Central Europe (including the United Kingdom and Ireland) Eastern Europe, Southern Europe and the Rest of the World (currently consisting of southern Africa and Thailand). Behind the quarter’s sales increase lies increased demand in virtually all of these markets, where especially Central Europe (including the United Kingdom and Ireland), reported strong growth. Eastern Europe also developed well, with Poland as the largest market. Southern Europe also enjoyed a positive development. HVAC, which accounts for approximately 30 per cent of Beijer Ref’s sales, continued to increase during the second quarter. ResultsThe Group’s operating profit amounted to SEK 136.9M (83.4) for the second quarter. The result increase can be explained as a combination of implemented savings measures taken during 2013, increased market share in the United Kingdom and strengthened demand, especially for HVAC, but also for commercial & industrial refrigeration in Europe. In the previous year’s figures, the operating result is charged with one-time costs of SEK 34.2M. Excluding these one-time costs, the operating profit for the second quarter of 2013 amounted to SEK 117.6M. For the first half year, the operating profit amounted to SEK 208.2M (132.1). Excluding one-time costs, the operating profit was SEK 166.3M in the previous year. The Group’s financial income/expense amounted to SEK -8.6M (-9.6) for the second quarter. Profit before tax was SEK 128.3M (73.8). Profit after tax was SEK 89.3M (50.4). Profit per share amounted to SEK 2.03 (1.14). For the first half of the year, the Group’s financial income/expense amounted to SEK -16.1M (-15.0). Profit before tax was SEK 192.1M (117.1). Profit after tax amounted to SEK 134.9M (82.8). Profit per share was SEK 3.06 (1.83). Other financial informationConsolidated capital expenditure, including acquisitions, amounted to SEK 40.2M (34.4) for the first half of 2014. Liquid funds, including unutilised bank overdraft facilities, were SEK 373.6M (433.1) on 30 June 2014. Shareholders’ equity amounted to SEK 2,431.7M (2,247.5). The net debt was SEK 1,607.5M (1,479.3). The equity ratio amounted to 41.9 per cent (41.7). The average number of employees during the first half of the year was 2,169 (2,106). Significant events during the yearIn January, G & L Beijer acquired all the shares in Eurocool (Pty) Ltd, a leading refrigeration wholesaler in South Africa. Eurocool was founded in 1999 and holds a strong market position within G & L Beijer’s priority segments. The company reports sales of approximately SEK 65M and has 36 employees. The acquisition is estimated to provide cost synergies, increased efficiency and increased purchasing volumes through co-ordination with Beijer Ref’s existing operation in southern Africa. The acquisition is deemed to have a marginal positive effect on Beijer Ref’s profit per share in 2014. Eurocool is included in G & L Beijer’s accounts from January 2014. On 12 March, the EU Parliament voted ‘yes’ to the proposal about a new F-gas ordinance which was confirmed by the Council of Ministers in a vote on 14 April. As a result, the decision to phase out refrigerants with fluorised greenhouse gases (F-gases) has come into force which is predicted to have a positive effect on Beijer Ref through the investments in new technology which the end customers will gradually need to make and where Beijer ref is well prepared for the new business opportunities. On 14 May, the Swedish Companies Registration Office approved the Group’s change of name from G & L Beijer to Beijer Ref. A classic Swedish industrial company’s modern operation is now also reflected in the company name. Risk assessmentThe operations of the Beijer Ref Group are affected by a number of external factors, the effects of which on the Group’s operating profit can be controlled to a varying degree. The Group’s operation is dependent on the general economic trend, especially in Europe, which controls the demand for Beijer Ref’s products and services. Acquisitions are normally linked with risks such as, for example, staff defection. Other operating risks, such as agency and supplier agreements, product responsibility and delivery undertaking, technical development, warranties, dependence on individuals, etc., are continually being analysed and, when necessary, action is taken to reduce the Group’s risk exposure. In its operation, Beijer Ref is exposed to financial risks such as currency risk, interest risk and liquidity risk. The parent company’s risk picture is the same as that of the Group.

Scania Interim Report January–June 2014

Summary of the first six months of 2014 · Operating income rose by 8 percent to SEK 4,276 m. (3,971) · Net sales rose by 4 percent to SEK 43,917 m. (42,139) · Cash flow amounted to SEK 1,313 m. (405) in Vehicles and Services Comments by Martin Lundstedt, President and CEO: “Scania's earnings for the first half of 2014 amounted to SEK 4,276 m. Higher service volume was offset by a weaker market mix and negative currency rate effects. Total order bookings for trucks during the second quarter were at a high level. Order bookings in Europe improved compared to the first quarter of 2014. A somewhat improved economic situation and the replacement need are supporting demand. Scania strengthened its position in the European market with increased market share, among other things through a leading Euro 6 range, which is confirmed by tests in the trade press. Order bookings in Latin America were in line with the previous quarters. In Asia, order bookings improved sharply, related to the Middle East. Demand in Russia was adversely affected by the turbulence in the region. In buses and coaches, Scania received strategic orders for BRT-systems in Africa and Latin America. In Engines, order bookings rose, driven by Europe and Asia. Scania has initiated collaboration on engine deliveries to Atlas Copco. Scania is continuing its long-term efforts to boost market share in Services and revenue increased by 5 percent during the first half of 2014. Financial Services showed a strong performance and customer payment capacity is good. During the second quarter, Scania could welcome a clear and long-term ownership structure as the offer from Volkswagen went through. Cooperation projects with MAN and Volkswagen can now be intensified, which will provide support to the growth scenario up to 2020. The level of activity related to development projects remains high and Scania is investing in expanded production and service capacity.” For more information please see the attached pdf.

Financial Report April - June 2014

The expectation at the beginning of the quarter was for an organic sales growth of “around 5%” and an adjusted operating margin of “around 9%”. During the quarter the Company recorded legal costs related to the settlements of class action lawsuits in the U.S. of around $70 million. Additionally the Company returned a total of $146 million to our shareholders through share buybacks and dividends. The Company also secured $1.25 billion in long term funding at an average interest rate of 3.84% by the closing of its U.S. private placement. For the third quarter of 2014 we expect organic sales to increase by around 6%, and an adjusted operating margin of around 8.5%. The indication for the full year is now for organic sales growth of more than 6%, and an adjusted operating margin of around 9%. Key FiguresFor Key Figures summary table, please refer to attached file below. Comments from Jan Carlson, Chairman, President & CEO   “In the second quarter we saw solid growth across our markets, notably North America, Europe and Japan. The exception was Brazil where we saw a sharp decline in light vehicle production. In addition, our main growth engines over the last two years, China and active safety, continued their strong performance.Coming from low production levels, Europe saw its sixth consecutive quarter of growth with European car sales growing by 7% in the first half of 2014. At the moment we see a slow but sustained recovery in Europe. This supports the operational improvement program in our European steering wheel business which is developing in line with the original plan outlined last year.The growth in Japan was a positive surprise. At the beginning of the quarter a decline of the light vehicle production was expected as a result of an increase in the Japanese consumption tax. Instead, we saw slight growth and a favorable product mix for Autoliv which led to double digit growth. A sustained recovery in the Japanese economy could also reflect positively on the light vehicle production moving forward.Active safety showed solid growth in the quarter and in order to support the continued growth and development in this business we have decided to increase the development and engineering spending.In the current situation with millions of cars being recalled for safety related reasons the importance of quality cannot be overemphasized. In this environment we continue to further build our position as the industry’s quality leader, as our business is all about saving lives.With these issues in mind we continue the focus on our growth strategy, quality, and execution of the 2014 transition. ” An earnings conference call will be held at 3:00 p.m. (CET) today, July 18.

During the quarter, several innovations and product launches were carried out under the Libero, Libresse, TENA and Tork brands. The efficiency programs in the hygiene and forest products operations continue to deliver cost savings according to plan. Our Tissue and Forest Products business areas showed significant earnings growth. Personal Care was negatively impacted by higher raw material costs and negative exchange rate effects in emerging markets. Consolidated net sales for the second quarter of 2014 grew 12% compared with the same period a year ago. Organic sales growth was 3.3% and pertained to all business areas. Growth was mainly in emerging markets and in the Forest Products business area. Operating profit for the second quarter of 2014, excluding items affecting comparability, rose 29% compared with the same period a year ago. The increase is mainly attributable to a better price/mix, higher volumes, cost savings, the acquisition of the majority shareholding in the Chinese company Vinda, and gains on forest swaps. The operating margin excluding items affecting comparability increased by 1.5 percentage points to 11.4%. Earnings per share grew by 56%. Operating cash flow increased by 28% to SEK 2,060m. As part of our strategy to grow in emerging markets, SCA and Vinda have concluded an agreement under which Vinda will take over SCA’s hygiene operations in China, which will lead to mutual benefits in distribution, sales, innovation, and research and development. SCA’s joint venture in Australia, New Zealand and Fiji – Asaleo Care – has been floated on the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX).

Boliden’s Q2: High production and strong cash flow

“The last quarter was a good one for Boliden, with record production levels at Aitik and production further boosted by Garpenberg’s new facility. Production by Business Area Smelters was stable, given the maintenance shutdowns during the quarter, and the action plan at Rönnskär is continuing to yield good results. The high production levels did, however, generate increased costs, and rising metal prices resulted in internal profits that have not, as yet, been realised within the consolidated profit,” says Boliden’s President & CEO, Lennart Evrell. The positive production trend at the Aitik mine continued during the quarter, with a milled tonnage volume of just over 10 million tonnes – the highest ever for a single quarter. Boliden Mines’ results were boosted by the Garpenberg mine’s volumes, but impacted by increased depreciation. Production by Boliden Smelters was stable and the maintenance shutdowns went better than planned. The shutdowns did result in a fall in smelter production and higher costs in comparison with the previous quarter, but this was compensated for by improvements in prices, TC/RC and exchange rates. Strong growth in China and a continued recovery in the mature economies have contributed to a year on year growth in demand for Boliden’s main metals, copper and zinc, of just over 4 per cent. By the end of the quarter, the price of zinc had reached its highest level since August 2011. “The market’s mood has gradually improved. Expectations of a copper surplus have declined while the anticipated shortage of zinc concentrate is becoming increasingly likely. The weaker Swedish krona is also having a positive effect on Boliden’s figures in that our sales are all made in US dollars, while the majority of our costs are in SEK,” explains Lennart Evrell. On 8thJuly, Boliden entered into an agreement with Altona Mining to buy the Kylylahti copper mine, together with exploration rights and deposits in eastern Finland. The consideration amounts to USD 95 million. “We see several synergies in mining, metallurgy and exploration. The acquisition will also establish Boliden as a mining company in Finland, where we are already a significant smelting company. We are now awaiting the approval of the Finnish Competition and Consumer Authority and the Altona Mining Limited shareholders,” concludes Lennart Evrell, President & CEO of Boliden.  For further information, please contact: Marcela Sylvander, Group Communications, tel: +46 (0)733 2445512Sophie Arnius, Investor Relations, tel: +46 (0)70 590 80 72   Boliden is a metals company with a commitment to sustainable development. Our roots are Nordic, but our business is global. The company’s core competence is within the fields of exploration, mining, smelting and metals recycling.

Operating profit/loss for the same period was SEK -3.1 (-3.0) million. The Swedish business accounted for 68% of the Group's revenue during the quarter. Poolia’s sales and profitability were too low during the period, this partly due to seasonality, with fewer working days than in other quarters. The cost of unplaced resource temps did not start to fall until the end of the period. During the quarter, we incurred transition of costs of SEK 3.0 million (SEK 4.4 million for the year-to-date). Poolia's German business is developing well, showing growth of 41% and a significant increase in operating profit. Our Finnish operations also had a good second quarter. Growth compared with the second quarter of the previous year was 61%, still with an acceptable operating profit. Poolia Group's revenues from continuing operations decreased by SEK 24.0 million (6.3%) during the first half of 2014. Operating profit for the same period amounted to SEK 0.9 (1.4) million, leaving an operating margin of 0.3% (0.4%). Cash flow for the period was SEK 10.1 (12.8) million. The Group's liquidity is good. Poolia's operations in Sweden need to be improved significantly. The competitive situation in Sweden is tough, and Poolia has not been able to adapt its core business to the prevailing situation. This has resulted in a downturn in revenue, reduced market share and negative profitability. To return Poolia Sweden to a positive trend, we are carrying out a programme of measures that aim not only to cut costs by SEK 15 million on an annual basis, but also to increase market presence in the form of intensified sales and marketing. Poolia is an important company in an industry that develops the Swedish labour market. We have a good future and we must manage it in the best possible way. Morten WernerManaging Director and CEO

IS THERE AN APP FOR THAT? KNICKET LAUNCHES APP SEARCH ENGINE

Apps anyone? Knicket the app search engine (http://www.knicket.com/) makes web history this week as it officially launches following 12 months in development and beta testing. Cleverly designed to make searching for apps and games a breeze, Knicket works just like a traditional search engine but for apps instead of web pages. Created to help smartphone and tablet users navigate the increasingly cluttered urban jungle, Knicket removes the guess work from app downloads. Built on an asynchronous database, Knicket apps are tailored and transparent, highlighting the most suitable apps for each search. With an intuitive selection of savvy search tools, the real time engine guides users to the most suitable apps for their needs. A suite of clever tools such as user rating filters, a price slider and suggested tags to accompany the original search term quickly narrows down the 2 million apps available though the Apple App Store and Google Play store into a carefully curated list. A tagging system allows users to narrow search results and, because Knicket is an independent app search, results that are displayed are the best and true. This means the order isn’t determined by app store interests, getting the user to the most relevant result and most appropriate app for their needs in no time at all. Uwe Flade, Knicket Founder and CCO said, “Knicket is the fastest and best app search engine. Based on the latest technology and 100% independent, we use filters and sorting options to help the user refine their results. With millions of apps to choose from, this level of control is absolutely essential. There are more than 3500 fitness apps alone. iTunes and Google Play do not allow users to filter such results. Knicket does. For total convenience, Knicket also offers a web based app that can be used with all smart phones, no matter what the operating system. The interface will be improved further over the next few months for a totally slick browsing experience.” Dr. Thomas Jung, founder and CEO said, “Approximately 40,000 new apps are added to the App Store and Google Play each month. How do you know which app best suits your needs? How many pages of results do you need to scroll through and how many apps do you need to download before you find the one that does the job? Knicket gets it. “Type in a query, use Knicket’s tags to narrow or refine search results and add in as many filters as you want to get the best apps for your needs. No more frustrating downloads, false starts or hours spent trawling through page after page of two expensive apps. Search, select, download. It’s that easy. We expect knicket will be the app Wikipedia and Google in one.” Users heading to Knicket to find their perfect app simply type in their search term (for example San Francisco), use the suggested tags to refine the search (for example City Guide or Weather), and hit find. Apply filters to narrow down the hunt, view by price, choose to lock out apps below a certain star rating, order by release date or by number of downloads. There’s also an option to cut out apps with in-app purchasing, making Knicket the slickest way to search all iOS and Android apps. In the six months since it went live, Knicket has helped more than 600,000 users in 193 countries. Initially available in English, it will roll out almost a dozen foreign language versions before the end of 2014 and has plans to increase functionality and monetize its results with additional advertising options. Free to use, Knicket has already raised more than €126,185,00 in seed funding through the companisto.com crowdfunding platform, with the campaign still ongoing. The German funding bank IBB has also provided a €160,000 funding loan. To find out more visit www.knicket.com

Tiddlybot encourages higher order thinking skills

Developed to help young people learn about robotics, programming the Tiddlybot was recently launched on Kickstarter (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1320310506/tiddlybot-fun-and-simple-raspberry-pi-robot). The tiddlyBot is based on the lowcost Raspberry Pi mini-computer and allows users to turn a Raspberry Pi into a fun little robot.  The famous little robot from developers Agilic; featured in Broadsheets from The Times to The Huffington Post (http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/2014/06/27/technology-strategy-board-robotics-mission-2014_n_5536382.html?utm_hp_ref=uk); can draw, follow lines, output a live wireless video feed and be controlled from a web interface, from a smart phone, tablet or any other PC with a browser. In a time where learning to learn has never been more relevant, the Tiddlybot encourages development of such learning skills as problem solving, programming and the basics of robotics; something which the next generation will need to understand in the way that the current children of the 70s and 80s embraced computers. Able to follow pre-drawn lines, tiddlybot can be a 'good little robot' by demonstrating this true autonomous behaviour.  In addition it can draw lines, which can again either be pre programmed or - and this is the fun bit - freestyle!With a developing team made up of students spanning two continents, the spokesman for Tiddlybot, Harry Gee said, "we've been working hard to create something to engage and empower the next generation of engineers, programmers and scientists and we think Tiddlybot is fantastic at focusing all types of learners." Children find it easy to use and fun to play with; as do adults. The driving force behind its creation was empowering our future generations with some of the fundamentals of programming, whilst supporting the learning of  Python and Javascript for more advanced students. The team has taken care to integrate efficient power conversion to allow the batteries to last for longer and there's also an option for onboard battery charging for minimising fuss. Both hardware and software used for the project were designed to be simple and straightforward to use, building confidence with robotics and engineering for learners. With starting pledges to attend a robot making workshop starting at just $15, the Tiddlybot offers a cost effective way to develop young people's minds in an wide range of areas. To purchase a build-your-own version, pledgers are asked for $44 or to own just the interface $37, so there's an option available for every budget. 'Tiddles', as the company affectionately refer to it, comes in a range of colours as well as a wood version; made from sustainable plywood. The Kickstarter campaign seeks to fund research into the many ways the Tiddlybot, and other Raspberry Pi bots can be adapted and applied to enhance the learning of Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM). To pledge to fund this innovative and future thinking technology, please visit the Kickstarter campaign and see the video at https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1320310506/tiddlybot-fun-and-simple-raspberry-pi-robot

Resounding recitals for summer Saturdays at York Minster

It has often been said that the cavernous space within York Minster provides the organ with the most acoustically stunning sound that has few rivals, and this July and August, visitors will have the chance to listen to the instrument played by some of the best organists around as part of the Summer Organ Recitals series, each Saturday from 26 July to 23 August 2014. Graham Barber is well known as an international concert organist, described by Gramophone Magazine as ‘one of the organ world’s finest recording artists’.  He opens the concert season, taking to the console on Saturday 26 July. John Scott Whiteley has been associated with  York Minster’s organ for many years  and now has the title Organist Emeritus (an honorary title given to those who retire from service) and played in the Minster from 1975 until 2010, before retiring from the ‘day job’ to pursue a freelance career.  He has 26 solo CDs to his credit, and features on almost as many as an accompanist.  He returns to the Minster on Saturday 2 August. Peter King is the director of music at Bath Abbey, where he not only plays but also helped design and install the Klais organ.  Peter and will be performing on Saturday 9 August, following a tour to The Netherlands. The final two concerts will be performed by York Minster’s current musical team, starting with assistant director of music, David Pipe, who takes to the console on 16 August.  Robert Sharpe, the director of music for York Minster, completes the line-up and the Summer Organ Recital series, on 23 August.  “We are delighted to be welcoming Graham Barber and Peter King for this concert series, and it is always an absolute pleasure to hear John Scott Whiteley’s return to York Minster, so we are very much looking forward to this year’s Summer Organ Recitals,” comments Robert Sharpe.  “With an instrument as complex as the organ in York Minster, it will come as no surprise that each performer bring their own style and sound to their performances, so this should make one of our best ever summer seasons.” The origins of the main pipe organ in York Minster date from 1834, when it was rebuilt following a major fire of 1829, and has since been refurbished and reconstructed a number of times.  The most obvious part of the organ – the decorative pipes on the front of the Kings Screen – do not actually sound, with the majority of the sounding pipes located behind the front and in the aisles on either side.  The most recent refurbishment took place in 1993, although regular maintenance and tuning has to take place to keep the organ in peak condition.  As constant a temperature and humidity level within the cathedral is important to keep the instrument in tune. Tickets for each concert at £9.00, and available from the York Minster box office or online at www.yorkminster.org ENDS Performer biographies About Graham Barber Since his début in London at the Royal Festival Hall in 1979, Graham Barber has been recognised as one of the world’s leading concert organists. He has given concerts in major venues in Britain, Europe, the Far East, the United States and Australia, and has been widely broadcast. Reviewing his first recording in 1975, the Sunday Times described him as a ‘technically brilliant, musically mature organist.’ He has made CDs on many English, German and Dutch organs and has been described in Gramophone magazine as ‘one of the organ world’s finest recording artists.’ Emeritus Professor at the University of Leeds since 2009 and sometime Visiting Tutor in Organ Studies at the Royal Northern College of Music, Manchester, Graham Barber is a freelance concert organist and keyboard player and Organist at St. Bartholomew’s Church, Armley where he is custodian of the celebrated Schulze organ. He has given master-classes at conservatories in Weimar, Enschede, Braga, Lisbon and Cologne. In October 2004 he was Distinguished Academic Visitor at the University of Adelaide. In 2006 he was the recipient of a prestigious NESTA Fellowship (http://grahambarber.org.uk/nesta-fellowship/) from the National Endowment for Science, Technology and the Arts. Graham Barber has performed in concert with many of the world’s leading conductors including Sir Edward Downes, Sir Charles Groves, Richard Hickox, Sir Charles Mackerras, Sir Georg Solti, Jan Pascal Tortelier and Sir David Willcocks. About John Scott Whiteley John Scott Whiteley is Organist Emeritus of York Minster, having worked at that great cathedral from 1975 until 2010 when he retired from the Minster in order to pursue his freelance career. During the past ten years he has become well-known for his performances on BBC2 and BBC4 television of the complete organ music of Johann Sebastian Bach.  21st-Century Bach was a joint commission by BBC2 and BBC4 and began in 2001. The series continues and is planned to run for several more years, after which time some eighty programmes will have covered Bach's entire output for organ. The series was described by the British daily national newspaper, The Daily Telegraph, as "a triumph both nationally and musically." Having studied at the Royal College of Music with Ralph Downes and W.S. Lloyd Webber, and with Flor Peeters in Malines and Fernando Germani in Siena, John Scott Whiteley won first prize in the1976 National Organ Competition of Great Britain.

Since 1985 John has toured the USA every year. John now has twenty-six solo CD recordings to his credit, and a further twenty-two as accompanist. His CD, Great Romantic Organ Music, appeared for eight years in the Penguin Good CD Guide as one of the best recorded organ recitals, and several other CDs have won awards, notably a Critic's Choice Award from The Gramophone. About Peter King A former student of Dame Gillian Weir and Allan Wicks (Organ), and Ronald Smith (Piano), Peter King was appointed Director of Music at Bath Abbey in 1986. Under his direction the Abbey Choir has visited Germany, Holland and France, and has released six CDs and broadcast on BBC TV and Radio 3. In 1997 Peter started a Girls’ Choir at Bath Abbey; it quickly established itself as one of the finest musical ensembles in Bath. Together with Nicolas Kynaston, Peter was responsible for the design and installation of the Abbey’s Klais Organ. His seven CDs with Bath Abbey Choir and his 12 CDs on the new abbey organ have been highly acclaimed by the critics. Peter was Assistant Chorus Director to the CBSO during all of Sir Simon Rattle’s reign as Musical Director and he still plays the organ regularly with the orchestra. He plays on Rattle’s EMI recordings of Mahler’s Resurrection Symphony and Symphony of a Thousand. His recitals at the Bath Mozartfest have been broadcast on BBC Radio 3.

Extraordinary general meeting of Agrokultura AB (publ)

Background and motivationThe board of directors has, in order to deliver the company’s shareholders’ expectations, committed to a strategy to proactively compare the value of the company as a going concern towards the value that an outside buyer is ready to pay for the shares, the assets or a combination of the two. More concretely, this entails realizing the previously announced cost reduction program, exploring strategic alternatives for the Ukrainian as well as the Russian business, sale of non-core assets, focusing on increasing crop yield and reinforcing the internal processes. In conjunction with the half-year report which will be published on 28 August 2014, a full statement will be made on the business, which will include an update on the cost reduction program and a progress report for the year’s harvest. Additionally, the company will report on the buyer interest relating to the Ukrainian operations in the light of recent political developments. As previously announced, Agrokultura AB (publ) has received information that the company’s largest shareholder has entered into an agreement regarding the off market sale of its entire holding to an undisclosed buyer at the price of SEK 3.75 per share. Although a significant premium to the current market price, it is significantly lower than the last reported book value of SEK 6.80 per share. The company has also received unconfirmed reports that the same buyer is currently looking to build up a significant ownership position through other off market transactions. Repeated attempts have made been during the past week to get in touch with the new owner in order to understand the new buyer’s potential intentions. These attempts, to date, have been inconclusive. In the light of the above, the board of directors of Agrokultura AB (publ) wishes to take measures to ensure equal treatment of all shareholders with the aim to give them the benefit of the company’s true value.Stockholm on 21 July 2014 For additional information, please contact:Investor Relations + 44 203 427 3983 or + 46 730 43 08 84

Salamander Energy plc Announces Agreement to Sell 40% Stake in Greater Bualuang Area

     21 July 2014  Salamander Energy plc("Salamander" or the "Group") Further to the Heads of Agreement announced on 5 June 2014, Salamander is pleased to announce that a definitive Share Sale and Purchase Agreement has now been signed with SONA Petroleum Berhard ("SONA") to dispose of an effective 40% working interest in the B8/38 concession containing the Bualuang oil field and the surrounding G4/50 concession, both located in the Gulf of Thailand (together the "Transaction"). Proposed Transaction Terms Under the terms of the Transaction: · SONA will pay a consideration of US$280 million in cash plus working capital adjustments based on the effective date of 1 January 2014. · Salamander will pay for the costs associated with the drilling of two exploration wells in the G4/50 concession, up to a cap of US$15 million · A contingent payment of up to US$15 million to be made by SONA to Salamander in the event of a commercial discovery in the G4/50 concession Mitsui Oil Exploration Co Ltd ("MOECO"), from whom Salamander acquired its 100% interest in G4/50, holds back-in rights to up to 50% of the concession while the licence is in its exploration phase. In the event that MOECO exercises its back-in rights, Salamander's and SONA's effective working interests will each be diluted in proportion to their ownership in G4/50 (being 60 / 40). The Transaction remains conditional, amongst other things, on approval by Salamander's shareholders and SONA receiving regulatory approval from the Securities Commission of Malaysia and approval by its shareholders. The consideration will be met by SONA via existing cash resources and financing arranged with BNP Paribas the final documentation of which is a condition to closing of the Transaction.  The Transaction is not subject to any other regulatory approvals. Transaction Rationale The Transaction is in line with the Group's stated strategy of active portfolio management to realise value from its assets over time. In particular the sale: · Demonstrates and crystallises the value created in the B8/38 concession since the Group increased its stake through acquiring an additional 40% interest in the acreage for $105 million in 2010. Since that time the Bualuang field has seen material reserves and production growth and generated significant free cash flow. · Reduces asset concentration risk within the Group's portfolio · Reduces the Group's balance sheet exposure to the next phase of capital expenditure associated with the Bualuang field development · Strengthens the balance sheet with the Group expected, subject to closing of the Transaction,  to retire between US$200 and US$250 million of gross debt · Provides sufficient cash to return US$50 million to shareholders, equivalent to approximately 11 pence per share. Asset Description The B8/38 concession is located in the Gulf of Thailand and contains the Bualuang oil field. The field was brought on-stream in 2008 and to date has produced over 17 million barrels of oil. It has two production platforms, Alpha and Bravo, and a Floating, Production, Storage & Offtake vessel ("FPSO") which processes and stores Bualuang crude and from which cargoes are offloaded on a regular basis. Gross daily production in 2014 is expected to average between 11,000 and 14,000 barrels of oil per day ("bopd"). The field is currently undergoing a phase of development drilling and infrastructure upgrade, with wells being drilled from the Bualuang Bravo Platform. The Bualuang FPSO is to be replaced with a Floating, Storage & Offtake vessel ("FSO") and the Bualuang crude will be processed using newly installed modules located on the Bravo platform. The FSO is currently in the field awaiting hook up, once the facilities upgrade is completed, it is expected to result in substantial savings in operating costs. Further exploitation of the field is anticipated through the design, construction and installation of a third platform, Charlie. This is currently at the conceptual design phase but is expected to be sanctioned later this year and will ultimately lead to the commercialisation of a proportion of the identified contingent resource in the field. Reserves and resources in the Bualuang oil field have been estimated as at 31 December 2013 by both Salamander management and RPS Energy, its independent reserve auditor as follows:      Proved Proved + Best Estimate Contingent Resources Reserves Probable ReservesSalamander (MMbo) 19.3 32.7 32.3ManagementRPS Energy (MMbo) 19.3 30.1 27.8 The G4/50 concession surrounds the B8/38 concession and Salamander has acquired 3D seismic over the acreage and mapped a large number of prospects and leads in the 10-100 MMbo size range. Environmental permits are currently being sought to cover 20 drilling locations in the G4/50 acreage. For the twelve months ended 31 December 2013, on an IFRS basis, Salamander Energy Bualuang Limited ("SEBG"), the Group's wholly-owned subsidiary which holds 60% interest in the B8/38 concession, and which is the subject of the proposed Transaction, generated revenues of approximately US$272 million and profit before taxation of US$103 million.  Gross assets of SEBG, as at 31 December 2013, were US$438 million. In connection with the proposed Transaction, and with effect from 1 January 2014, SEBG has agreed to transfer a 40% working interest in G4/50 to a subsidiary of Salamander. The value of the interest to be transferred was US$11.3 million as at 31 December 2013, reducing the gross assets, the subject of the proposed Transaction accordingly. Transaction Structure The proposed Transaction is to be effected via a share sale to SONA of an interest in SEBG which will result in SONA having an effective 40% working interest in both B8/38 and G4/50. The relationship between Salamander and SONA will be governed by a series of documents including a Shareholders Agreement, a Joint Operating Agreement and certain Management, Technical and Support Service Agreements. These Agreements will set out the respective rights and obligations of the two shareholders of SEBG, which will be governed by its own Board, chaired by Salamander. Following the Transaction, Salamander Energy (Bualuang) Limited will continue to operate the B8/38 concession. Salamander will retain an effective 60% interest in both the B8/38 and G4/50 concessions through its residual holding in SEBG and through Salamander Energy (E&P) Limited, a second, wholly-owned subsidiary which holds a direct 40% interest in the B8/38 concession. General Meeting and Shareholder Circular Completion of the Transaction is conditional upon, amongst other things, Salamander shareholders' providing approval for the proposed Transaction, as due to its size, it constitutes a Class 1 Disposal under the Listing Rules. A circular setting out further details of the Transaction, together with the notice to convene the general meeting and the form of proxy for use at the general meeting, will be posted to Salamander shareholders in due course. The resolution will be proposed as an ordinary resolution that will be passed if a simple majority of the votes cast at the meeting are in favour of the resolution. Completion of the Transaction is expected to occur during the fourth quarter of 2014. Clifford Chance acted as Legal Adviser to Salamander on the Transaction. James Menzies, CEO of Salamander, commented: "The transaction announced today, represents excellent value for shareholders. Since increasing our stake in the field in 2010, Bualuang has produced over 10 million barrels of oil and generated significant cash flow. This deal demonstrates that during that time, Salamander has more than doubled the value of the field under its stewardship against a flat commodity price.

Interim report January-June 2014

(Tables included in attached PDF) Second quarter 2014 · Net sales increased with 2% and adjusted operating profit increased with 44% compared to the second quarter 2013. Improvements were due to improved product mix and volumes, as well as more favourable exchange rates and synergies. · Compared to the previous quarter net sales and adjusted operating profit decreased due to periodic maintenance shutdowns. · During the quarter the group has restructured the debt portfolio securing a healthy debt profile with improved margins. January-June 2014 compared with the same period in 2013 · Net sales has increased with 3% due to mix, volume and more favourable currency exchange rates. · The adjusted operating profit has improved with SEK 260 million due to synergies, volume, mix and a weakened SEK. · Synergies of approximately SEK 154 million have impacted the first six months compared to the same period last year. Outlook · Demand and order situation is expected to remain stable during the third quarter 2014 for all business areas. · Average prices in local currency are anticipated to stay on current level for the third quarter 2014 for business areas Packaging Paper and Consumer Board. Meanwhile the increased gap between recovered fibre and primary fibre grades is leading to an increased pressure on primary fibre based prices within the business area Containerboard. Due to increased production capacity in Sweden from converted fine paper machines especially white kraftliner prices are facing decreases. · Wood prices are expected to stay on current level for the second half of 2014. · The target of approximately SEK 530 million in annual synergies and savings is unchanged, and is expected to be reached during 2014. Estimated non-recurring costs for realising the synergies are increased from approximately SEK 200 million to approximately SEK 225 million. Comments by BillerudKorsnäs’ CEO Per Lindberg:Stable second-quarter results “We deliver a strong and stable result for the second quarter. Our adjusted operating profit reached SEK 467 million and our operating margin was 9%. Overall, I am pleased with our financial performance. The market place has been quite good with solid demand and stable prices within all business areas. Business area Packaging Paper has managed to keep the prices stable during the quarter in spite of increased capacity on the market, and has increased prices on new orders within the sack segments thanks to a seasonally strong demand. Within business area Consumer Board we have launched the next generation of Cartonboard products on the market, which has been very well received by customers. Business area Containerboard has delivered a stable result for the second quarter but is beginning to feel a real pressure from the increased capacity on the market. We continue with our ambition “Challenging conventional packaging for a sustainable future” with the aim of increasing the level of innovation and leadership. During the quarter we have received confirmation in several areas that we are right on target with our mission. Several countries are putting regulations in place for reducing the use of plastics in packaging. We offer sustainable alternatives to several plastic applications, and sustainability is our top priority. We have received recognition from both EcoVadis and "oekom research", meaning that the company is acknowledged for its sustainability work. During the quarter, we have also made a decision to further improve the environmental profile of the company through a major investment in Gävle. Following our ambition to increase innovation and product leadership, we have during the quarter decided to invest in next generation fluting at Gruvön, enhancing both product performance as well as machine capacity. On the more innovative side, BillerudKorsnäs and Berghs School of Communication are giving Spotify a physical form. It is this year’s edition of a packaging design contest for students at Berghs and this is the first time an online brand will be physically packaged. During the first half of 2014 we have delivered an operating margin of 10%, and a growth in sales volumes over last year with 4%, in line with our profitable growth targets and our long term strategy. The integration work has progressed as planned and as already communicated, the realisation of synergies is happening faster than first planned. All employees have done a fantastic work all across the company, in numerous different projects that constitutes the integration program. However, the pace of integration in combination with synergy-related incentives will increase the non-recurring costs for realising the synergies with approximately SEK 25 million for the year. It is my belief that this is money well spent.’’ BillerudKorsnäs’ President and CEO Per Lindberg and CFO Susanne Lithander will present the interim report at a press and analyst conference at 11.00 CET on Monday 21 July 2014.Venue: BillerudKorsnäs head office , Frösundaleden 2b, Solna, Stockholm, Sweden.

REUNION SUCCESS FOR ST MARGARET’S

Months of detective work came to fruition for Michele Olie when eight of the original team who undertook a World Challenge expedition to Northern India in the summer of 1994 travelled from far and wide to reunite at the Independent School for Girls 20 years later. “My son is heading off on expedition to South Africa this summer and it dawned on me that it is now 20 years since we went off to India,” explained Michele, who was an art teacher at the school at the time and now lives in Somerset. “I had a trawl about on the internet and eventually managed to track down all the girls who’d travelled apart from our Expedition Leader Ian Anderson, who was no longer on World Challenge’s database. “All the girls seemed keen on a reunion so I contacted St Margaret’s who were happy to host the event then I kept everyone abreast of developments through a Facebook group page.” The eight who attended were Michele, Nicola and  Emma Moores (both Lincolnshire), Smita and Monica Nath (London), Roz Tadman (Gloucestershire), Nicola Earle (London) with Helen Maunder-Taylor travelling from Australia, as she was able to combine the trip with her grandmother’s 100thbirthday celebrations! “It was lovely to see them all again – some of us have stayed in touch more than others over the years but we had a great time and even managed to watch a DVD containing our expedition footage and shared lots of photos, which helped bring the memories flooding back,” she added. Michele’s legacy has lived on with her two children, Alexander and Matthew, both signed up to overseas schools expeditions whilst she firmly believes that her World Challenge experience gave her the necessary life experience and valuable transferable skills needed for later life. “My friends are always astonished at what I can pull out of my handbag! I’m never without a penknife or a first aid kit,” she said. “Also the Far From Help Medical Course I undertook prior to the expedition has proved extremely valuable as a mother of two very active boys and it also helped when my husband collapsed unexpectedly. “Taking on an expedition is a fantastic way for young people to push themselves outside of their comfort zone, both physically and mentally, whilst at the same time experiencing international cultures and forging life-long friendships.” For more information on World Challenge visit www.world-challenge.co.uk

Each Friday, from 25 July until 29 August, the 10.00am train from Pickering will be crewed by characters more often seen in fiction.  Costumed characters from Make A Wish Entertainment will be keeping families amused as the train journeys between Pickering Station and Goathland, with stops along the way for storytelling, games and a little bit of mayhem! “Our story trains combine the best in on-rail entertainment from a hilarious cast of characters – this summer, we’ve got a charm of fairies, a band of pirates, and then some students of witchcraft and wizardry from Hogwarts – plus a very large, hairy member of the teaching staff giving advice on caring for dragons and other mystical beasts,” says marketing manager, Danielle Ramsey.  “We hope that many of our passengers will join the crew by arriving in costume – and we’ll be giving prizes away for the best each week!” Each story train departs from Pickering at 10.00am on Fridays, with passengers meeting characters both on the platform and on the train itself.  Travellers are entertained along the route to Goathland, where everyone disembarks for a walk into the village itself at 10.50am.  Following some fun and games, and a chance to enjoy a picnic lunch or the delicious food from the local tavern, passengers return to the train at 12.50pm for the return journey to Levisham.  At Levisham Station, there follows more fun and mayhem, before returning to Pickering for 2.40pm. The Fairy Story Train runs on 25 July and 15 August, whilst Pirates will be staging their on-board mutiny on 1 and 22 August.  The Hogwarts story train departs from Pickering’s Platform 1 ¾ on Friday 8 and 29 August. Tickets for the Story Trains are £20.50 for adults, £17.50 for seniors or £10.50 for children.  A family ticket – covering two adults and up to four children – is just £45.00.  Pre-booking is strongly recommended, as places are limited.

Interim report April - June 2014

"Record profit despite timid growth" “Trelleborg continued to improve earnings. Both operating profit and the operating margin are the highest levels ever for the Group for a single quarter. The Group also reported a stable cash flow. “Net sales rose 2 percent while organic sales declined 1 percent. Sales performance was favorable in all geographic markets except for Europe. The negative trend in Europe was primarily due to a weaker OEM market for agricultural tires, delays of deliveries of projects and ongoing repositioning to more value-creating niches in certain product segments. “We maintained our focus on value creation and generating growth via organic initiatives and bolt-on acquisitions. During the quarter, we decided on an investment in a production facility for agricultural tires in the U.S., which will provide us with local presence in North America and a global position in the market. Furthermore, Trelleborg acquired a company in Turkey, which consolidates our leading market position in industrial hoses. “As yet, we have not received any indication of a general improvement in the demand situation, and we believe that third-quarter demand for the Group as a whole will be on par with the second quarter of the year. We are continuing to carefully monitor the economic developments and are maintaining high preparedness to address fluctuating market conditions,”says Peter Nilsson, President and CEO. Second quarterNet sales for the second quarter of 2014 increased by 2 percent (0) and totaled SEK 5,725 M (5,628). Organic sales declined by 1 percent (increase: 2).

Items affecting comparability amounted to an expense of SEK 99 M (expense: 204), which was fully attributable to previously announced restructuring programs. The year-earlier period included an expense of SEK 155 M associated with process and dispute costs. Operating profit in the quarter for TrelleborgVibracoustic, excluding items affecting comparability, rose 26 percent to EUR 39 M (31). This corresponded to an operating margin of 8.9 percent (6.9), the highest to date for the company for a single quarter.

The company will become a business unit within Saab's business area Security and Defence Solutions. The business unit is named Saab Kockums. Saab expects that operations will continue to be carried out primarily in Malmö, Karlskrona and Muskö. In June, Saab and FMV signed a Letter of Intent regarding the Swedish armed forces’ underwater capabilities. With the acquisition of TKMS AB, Saab, together with the Swedish authority, is able to ensure access to the existing knowledge and intellectual properties (IPR) necessary for continued development, production and maintenance in the underwater sector for both the Swedish and the international markets. "The acquisition is in line with our strategy to expand our offering and strengthen Saab's position in the market for naval systems. Kockums has a unique offering and a strong local presence in Sweden concerning submarines and warships. The acquisition makes us a complete supplier of naval military systems. We also see good potential to expand the company's current market position through opportunities in the export market," says Håkan Buskhe, President and CEO of Saab."We are now beginning the integration of Kockums with Saab, focusing on reaching full capacity and we are starting work immediately with the orders placed by Sweden as well as deliveries to other existing customers. This will be followed by efforts to increase operational efficiency and profitability. This is key in order to be globally competitive in the long term. There are also good synergies to achieve with Saab's current naval operations," says Gunilla Fransson, head of Saab’s business area Security and Defence Solutions. TKMS AB designs, builds and maintains naval systems such as submarines and surface vessels. Other successful products include the air-independent Stirling propulsion system, submarine rescue vehicles and mine countermeasures systems.

i-Bell Achieves £30K Kickstarter Campaign Fundraising Goal

The new generation electronic doorbell, i-Bell has successfully reached its £30,000 kickstarter goal (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/729057054/i-bell) just 12 days after launching the crowdfunding campaign. In addition to achieving the funding target, the latest addition to the home automation market received huge levels of support and engagement, with backers reacting enthusiastically to the innovative technology and useful concept. Since launching less than two weeks ago, the campaign has secured pledges from over 200 eager supporters. Keen to back the phenomenal potential of the new product, backers have not only paid for pre-ordersbut also helped to spread the work by broadcasting the campaign via various social networking platforms, including Facebook and LinkedIn. Conceived as a useful solution to an everyday problem, i-Bell is a Wi-Fi enabled doorbell camera system that syncs the front door with smart phones, laptops and tablets. This means that home owners can see who is at their front door whether they are home or away thanks. The app makes the inconvenience of staying at home all day to wait for packages to be delivered a thing of the past while unscheduled guests can always be greeted thanks to the camera system that sits above the bell. Once installed the i-Bell gives users a bird’s eye view of whoever is at their front door through their phone, whether they are at work, on holiday or simply in the back garden. Robin Menen, i-Bell CFO, says, “An important part of Kickstarter is not just to achieve the funding target but to win the support of the communityand to push your funding beyond its goal. We’re delighted that our campaign really caught the imagination and in less than two weeks surpassed the £30,000 goal. It will be a fantastic achievement if by the end of our campaign on 7thAugust we can double our target” “I think the secret to the i-Bell success on Kickstarter is that is offers a ‘why didn’t i think of that’ solution to a very 21stcentury phenomenon. We all lead very busy lives that constantly take us away from home, and yet we are required to stay at home when we expect deliveries or in the event that family or friends may decide to pop over. The i-Bell is a way for us all to save time, enabling us to screen for potential unwanted visitors so that our time spent at home, perhaps running a relaxing bath or barbequing with the family, can be enjoyed without interruption. We didn’t want people to feel like slaves in their own home, worrying about missing the door bell or being concerned about opening the door to strangers. It gives control back to the home owner.” The first product of its kind in the UK, the i-Bell is compatible with Android, Apple, Windows and Blackberry so anyone with a Smartphone has access to the product. The combination of Wi-Fi and a HD camera enables homeowners to see and hear what’s going on at their front door from their phone.

VISITORS HELP HEBCELT TO ANOTHER SUCCESS

Visitors from nearly 30 countries helped make this year’s Hebridean Celtic Festival one of its most successful and provided a massive economic boost to the islands. The award-winning event was held from 16-19 July in Stornoway with Big Country, Levellers and Donnie Munro headlining its biggest ever programme of 40 acts. A huge influx of music fans from overseas made up half the estimated 14,000-strong audience that attended shows in the main arena in the grounds of Lews Castle, An Lanntair arts centre in the town centre and other venues in rural areas. The figure is close to last year’s record-breaking attendance - which was the best in the event’s 19 year history - and almost 17 per cent up on 2012. Organisers are already planning next year’s landmark 20th event which will be held from 15-18 July 2015. HebCelt director Caroline Maclennan said: “This year’s festival was another resounding success and the feedback we have received from visitors and local people has been tremendous. “We are delighted with the audience numbers, bearing in mind the economy is still very difficult. Almost half – 49 per cent – come from outside the Hebrides to take in the festival and that is hugely positive for local businesses. “Festival-goers also travel throughout the islands so the effect is felt across a wide area. “It’s really encouraging that the festival still attracts such a large and loyal following and we are excited about next year’s event which will be extra special as we reach the 20 years milestone.” Music fans travelled by car, ferry and plane from throughout the UK and across Europe as well from the Middle East, Australia, New Zealand, South America, China, Canada, the US, and Africa to attend HebCelt. Over 70 per cent were repeat visitors, demonstrating the loyal following it has amongst both local and visiting fans. Its popularity with fans of all ages was also shown by the broadly even split across six age groups – under 16s, 16-24 year-olds, 25-34, 35-44, 45-54 and over 55– at an average of 16.5 per cent each. Demand for accommodation this year led to an appeal being made three months ahead of the event.to help house visitors. Alastair Lockett, VisitScotland’s visitor services team leader, Outer Hebrides, said: “Yet again, HebCelt proves to be a great incentive for visitors from all over the world to come to the Outer Hebrides, especially in the Year of Homecoming Scotland 2014. “The weather was favourable, with campers enjoying warm sunshine for most of the festival and the friendly atmosphere attracted many families to the event and entertainment in the town centre. “We are also seeing many more festival-goers extending their stay and enjoying some of the great attractions the islands have to offer.” Emma Campbell-Macleod, owner of The Good Food Boutique in Stornoway’s Cromwell Street, was one of the businesses that benefited during HebCelt week. “We were very busy with both local people and visitors all week. I estimate that business was up about 20 per cent on the previous week and just over 10 per cent on last year.   “Everyone benefits from the festival, not just businesses. A lot of people said how busy the town was, with lots of tourists around. There was a real buzz about the place and it makes everyone feel more positive.” Kenny MacIver, a partner in Stornoway Taxi Service, said he drove people all over Lewis and as far away as the south of Harris: “We were extremely busy the whole week. Even when putting on extra cars to cope with demand we were still stretched. “Outside Christmas and New Year, HebCelt week is the busiest time of the year for us. The festival gives a real boost to the whole place and everyone gets something from it because it caters for all age groups.” The 19th HebCelt also featured performances by Cara Dillon, Rachel Sermanni, Duncan Chisholm, Cajun band Magnolia Sisters, from Louisiana, Larkin Poe, from Atlanta, and Canadian outfit Gordie MacKeeman and His Rhythm Boys. NOTES TO EDITORS This year HebCelt was selected as one of the top 10 UK summer festivals for the fourth year in succession by influential publication Songlines. It was also hailed as one of the greenest festivals in the world after being the only Scottish event to receive an Outstanding award from environmental campaign group A Greener Festival. In addition, it was shortlisted in the Greener Festival category in the UK Festival Awards and in the Best Independent Festival category in the AIM Independent Music Awards. In 2011 it was ranked Best Large Festival at the industry-sponsored Scottish Event Awards and it won Best Event of the Year award at the MG Alba Scots Trad Music Awards in 2004 and 2009.
