Fiskars Scissors Amplify Your Cutting Edge

MADISON, Wis. (June 3, 2013) – Fiskars introduced its revolutionary Orange-Handled Scissors design to the world in 1967, and today, the revolution continues with the launch of the Amplify™ Shears collection. The shears feature smart technology that adjusts the blades based on the thickness of the material to cleanly cut extra-thick materials all the way to the tip. When cutting thick and heavy materials, many scissors fail to perform because the blades are forced apart and the material folds over. Fiskars shears with Amplify™ technology sense blade separation when cutting thick materials and force the blades back together. The patent-pending technology features a floating blade tang that allows the transfer of energy to a torsion bar which adjusts the blade to its optimal angle, ensuring clean cuts every time. “Fiskars new Amplify Shears demonstrate how Fiskars has once again redefined the standard for cutting quality and precision,” said Fiskars President Paul Tonnesen. “Even a tool as simple as the scissors can be made better and smarter to help people more easily achieve their desired result.”Amplify™ Shears are available in two styles. For crafters who work with mixed media, Amplify™ Mixed Media Shears cut cleanly through thick materials like burlap and corkboard. For fabric enthusiasts, Amplify™ RazorEdge™ Fabric Shears feature the same technology with a different blade grind designed to glide through thick fabric like leather and denim, providing clean, precise cuts. Not only are the shears great for cutting thick raw materials, they are also exceptional for heavy-duty applications, such as upcycling and deconstructing garments or recycled materials, which often require cutting through multiple layers and sewn seams. Both styles include premium-grade stainless-steel blades, handles sculpted to fit the shape and movement of the hand, Softgrip® touchpoints for enhanced comfort and control and protective sheaths to keep the blades in top condition. They are available in multiple sizes to meet different needs such as cutting details (6"), all-purpose use (8") or making longer cuts (9").Fiskars’ Amplify™ technology derives from a three century heritage of delivering innovative cutting tools and has earned the shears the prestigious 2013 red dot award for product design. Amplify™ Shears provide a great complement for Fiskars Original Orange-Handled Scissors™ when tasks require more heavy-duty tools. Fiskars brand scissors are guaranteed for life.

Press release: Next-generation fuel cells are ready for low-emission electricity production

VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland Ltd, under the INNO-SOFC project and in collaboration with Convion Ltd and Elcogen Ltd, is developing a new-generation, long-life fuel cell system offering efficiency higher than that of competing technologies. The project will result in new, energy-efficient and commercially viable applications. Fuel cells are used to generate low-emission electricity and heat. Thus far, the adoption of such systems into widespread use has been hindered by their short service life and high price. These factors have been made the key development areas of the INNO-SOFC project, which was launched in September and is funded by the EU and managed by VTT. The target is set to double the service life and halve the cost of fuel cell systems. Such a competitive edge will enable the emergence of commercial applications. VTT, in collaboration with Elcogen and other European partners and Convion, will develop a 50 kW fuel cell system that will have an efficiency of 60% for electricity production and a total efficiency of 85%. Elcogen will deliver the core of the system, the fuel cells. VTT will act as the project coordinator, supporting the R&D of the companies participating in the project and validating the service life of the system and the cells. The new fuel cell system will generate normal alternating current and will be able to be used in several different applications. Fuel cells can be used to generate electricity and heat from methane produced by biomass at wastewater treatment and biogas plants. In addition to biogas, the distribution of LNG (liquefied natural gas) will enable the use of fuel cell systems outside the current gas network. Compared with competing systems, for example generators powered by a combustion engine, fuel cell systems exhibit a high efficiency level, low emissions, low noise and low vibration levels. Improved efficiency is especially pronounced in applications smaller than 1,000kW in power, in which fuel cells may exhibit an efficiency double that of competing technologies and produce CO2emissions that are correspondingly lower. Other emissions, such as particles, nitrogen oxides and noise, also remain at very low levels. Other participants in this project, managed by VTT, include the Finnish corporate partners Convion Ltd and Elcogen Ltd, as well as Dutch Energy Matters, Italian ENEA, Dutch ElringKlinger AG and Forschungszentrum Jülich. Collaboration on such a large scale enables the value chain of the entire system to be optimised, serving the requirements set by the end-user. “The companies participating in the project can expect to benefit from new competitive products and efficient value chains. Simultaneously, we are making a contribution to a growing European fuel cell industry. VTT coordinated the creation of the consortium. This project will also support R&D at Finnish companies and assist them in participating in the EU Horizon 2020 projects,” says VTT Project Manager Olli Himanen. This project, which commenced in September 2015, is scheduled for completion in April 2018. Out of a budget of EUR 4 million, the Finnish small and medium-sized companies Elcogen Ltd and Convion Ltd will be allocated a total of EUR 2.3 million for their own R&D, and VTT approximately EUR 0.6 million. Definitions: SOFCEnergy production faces challenges posed by the requirements to produce electricity and heat by increasingly efficient and cleaner means. By using solid oxide fuel cells (SOFC), energy is made out of fuel and air. The most notable advantage compared with the existing fuel cell technologies is the possibility of using conventional fuels, such as natural gas, diesel fuel and biogas, instead of pure oxygen. The fuel, and the oxygen present in the air, injected into the fuel cell, produce a direct electrochemical reaction in the fuel cell, generating electricity and heat.

Approval of change to the already approved Employee Stock Option Program10. Appointment of new Board of Directors and determination of remuneration to the Board Directors11. Closing of the meeting The proposals by the Board of Directors:  Resolution on change of the Company’s name and amendments to the Articles of Association (item 7) Nickel Mountain Group has in November 2015 changed the business profile from being mainly a mineral exploration company to becoming a debt collection company with focus on Europe. In such way the name Nickel Mountain Group is no longer suitable. The Board of Directors has evaluated various potential names and now proposes a name which has already been approved by the Swedish Companies’ Registrar (Bolagsverket). The proposed name is Axactor AB. The Board of Directors asks the Shareholders’ Meeting to approve the new name and the associated change of the Articles of Association. In view of the proposed agenda item 8, the Board proposes to the Shareholders’ Meeting to change the limits of the share capital and of the number of shares stipulated in the Articles of Association. The limits of the share capital are proposed to be a minimum of SEK 200 million and a maximum of SEK 800 million. This implies that the minimum number of shares outstanding shall be 400 million and the maximum amount of shares outstanding shall be 1,600 million. Resolution on authorization to issue shares and certain other financial instruments (item 8) The Board of Directors proposes that the general meeting resolves to authorize the Board of Directors to, on one or more occasions before the Annual General Meeting of 2016, resolve on issues of shares, warrants and/or convertible instruments, mainly in accordance with the following.  Issues may be carried out with or without considering the shareholders’ preferential rights.  The total number of shares which can be issued through resolutions under the authorization  shall not exceed 280,000,000 shares through share issues, the exercise of warrants and/or conversion of convertible instruments (this does, however, not prevent warrants and convertible instruments from being combined with terms and conditions for recalculation which, if applied, may result in another number of shares), corresponding to approximately 30 percent of the number of shares and votes in the Company after completion of the  issues approved at the Extraordinary General Meeting on November 17, 2015. Issues carried out without the shareholders’ preferential rights with cash payment or payment by set-off of claims, may only take place at a price in line with the market price of the Company’s share with a deduction for such market-related discount deemed required by the Board of Directors for successfully carrying out the issue. In case of a rights issue, the Board of Directors decides on the pricing. The authorization shall include a right to resolve on issues with cash payment, payment by set-off of claims or payment with non-cash consideration, and in combination with such conditions referred to in Chapter 2, section 5 second paragraph, points 2–3 and 5 of the Swedish Companies Act.  The reason for the Board of Directors’ proposal as well as the possibility to disregard the shareholders’ preferential rights is that the Company must be prepared to without delay improve its financial position and strengthen the shareholder value by way of opportunities that may arise. This authorization replaces the authorization approved at the Annual General Meeting on June 3, 2015. Resolution on change to the conditions of the Employee Stock Option Program (item 9) At the Extraordinary General Meeting held on November 17, 2015 the shareholders decided to implement an Employee Stock Option Program. In the resolution taken in this regard the conditions stipulated that the first tranche of options would be exercisable 12 months after the issue date. The Board now proposes to the EGM on December 23, 2015 to change said conditions so that the Board of Directors gets an authorization to push forward the exercise date of the first tranche options to 24 months after the date of issue. Appointment of new Board of Directors and determination of remuneration to the Board Directors (item 10) In view of the Company’s new business direction and the increased financial resources, it has been deemed both suitable and necessary to change the composition of the Board of Directors. The previous Nomination Committee of the Company resigned at the Annual General Meeting on June 3, 2015. It has not yet been replaced by a new committee. The process to appoint such new Nomination Committee is however ongoing.  The ambition is that a proposal for a new Board of Directors and for remuneration to the Directors shall be published as soon as practically possible, latest in connection with the Extraordinary General Meeting. Documents The Board’s complete proposals to items 7 - 9 will be available at office of the Company and on the Company’s website Copies of the proposals as well as other required documents will be sent free of charge to those shareholders who so request and state their postal address. Shareholders’ right to request information Shareholders are reminded of their right to obtain information from the Board of Directors and from the Managing Director in accordance with Swedish Companies’ Act § 7:32. Shares and votes As per the day of this notice, the total number of shares and votes in the Company is 90,809,360, however a registration matter of 400 million new shares has been submitted to the Swedish Companies’ Registrar.  ____________________________ Stockholm, November 2015 Nickel Mountain Group AB (publ) The Board of Directors

Eniro convenes Extraordinary General Meeting regarding settlement agreement with the former CEO

Eniro’s former CEO Johan Lindgren has in an arbitration proceeding against the company claimed termination salary and severance pay in the total amount of almost MSEK 13, which would result in a cost of approx. MSEK 16.9, including social security contributions, for Eniro, plus interest. Eniro has submitted a counterclaim against Johan Lindgren in the same arbitration proceeding for damages of approx. MSEK 7.6. Pursuant to the settlement agreement, Lindgren waives all claims regarding termination salary and severance pay and Eniro waives its counterclaim for damages. Pursuant to the settlement agreement, Eniro shall pay an amount of MSEK 3.8 to Lindgren for part of his costs in the arbitration proceeding as well as pay social security contributions on such amount. As a result thereof, the arbitration proceeding will be closed. If the settlement agreement is approved by the General Meeting, Eniro will be able to reverse the reserve of approx. MSEK 19.3, which is currently expected to give a positive impact on earnings of approx. MSEK 14. The settlement agreement is conditional on the approval of the General Meeting. The company has contacted some of its larger shareholders, which are in favour of the settlement agreement.

Nobel Prize-winning author inspires The Glass Bead Game

A well-known book by the German-born Swiss writer Hermann Hesse ‘The Glass Bead Game’ has inspired the innovator Martins Jansons to come up with world’s first Collective Creativity game that connects social players with an App. The model is novel in the history of games and solves the problem of sophisticated game publishing for hobbyists. “Be inspired by The Glass Bead Game” can now be supported collectively on Kickstarter, starting 24 November 2015. Analogue gaming environment is married with information technology to give players freedom of expression. The catalogue includes most of beloved board game classics such as checkers and tic-tac-toe to enjoy entertainment with friends and family. Playful learning games for kids support creative skill and memory training, containing arithmetic, music, storytelling, geography, flora & fauna and other subjects of fundamental knowledge. As a tool it can be used for psychological cognition and enterprise gamification — a new must-have office-game to engage teams and take better decisions while planning projects or analysing a business. Printed game sets work as extensions for each of the use cases. “A trained game-thinking is a useful skill in our everyday lives, perceiving situations or creating paths for our success. Game is a social playground to develop that skill and discovered the legend together! ” Says Martins Jansons. The ultimate aim of the game is to inspire players to create. The beads on 6 x 6 grid game boards and two dice are perfect elements to stimulate imagination. Game is an open-ended solution that activates visual thinking and logics enabling players to discover endless combinations of rules and game mechanics. The game App allows players to connect with like-minded and join teams of game collaborators, invite others to play and co-create. With the publishing of the game, Martins Jansons congratulates the great author on his 70th anniversary of receiving the Nobel Prize in Literature.www.theglassbeadgames.com TAGS: GAMES, BOARD GAMES, ENTERTAINMENT, LIFESTYLE, LEISURE, CREATIVITY, PLAYFUL LEARNING, FAMILY AND PARENTING, KIDS EDUCATION, PRODUCTIVITY TOOLS, ENTERPRISE GAMIFICATION, OFFICE GAMES, SERIOUS GAMES, CROWDFUNDING, COLLECTIVE CREATIVITY, THE GLASS BEAD GAME, HERMANN HESSE, LITERATURE, NOBEL PRIZE, INNOVATION, CREATORS LIFE

Approval of settlement agreement with the former CEO (Item 7) The Board of Directors of Eniro AB (publ) proposes that the General Meeting approves that the company enters into the following settlement agreement with the former CEO Johan Lindgren. Background Johan Lindgren has initiated an arbitration proceeding against the company and claimed to receive a total amount of approx. MSEK 12.9 regarding salary and benefits. If Johan Lindgren’s claim would be fully approved, the costs for the company would amount to approx. MSEK 16.9 including social security contributions, plus interest. The company has initiated a cross-action against Johan Lindgren in the same arbitration proceeding and claimed damages in the total amount of approx. MSEK 7.6. The claim for damages regards investigation costs (inter alia auditor reviews), damages due to Johan Lindgren’s violation of his authority in relation to the entering into an employment agreement and the fine the company has paid to the Stock Exchange. Due to the dispute, the company has, since earlier, reserved an amount of approx. SEK 19.3. The settlement agreement The principal terms and conditions in the agreement are the following. The company shall compensate Johan Lindgren for part of his costs in the arbitration proceeding, by paying Lindgren a total amount of MSEK 3.8. The company shall withhold and pay preliminary tax on the amount as well as pay social security contributions. Pursuant to Johan Lindgren’s employment agreement, the company will account for the costs in relation to the procedure itself. The settlement agreement will result in that all of the dealings will be fully and finally settled. That means that Johan Lindgren will not be able to put forth any additional claims in relation to his employment and that the company will not be able to put forth any additional claims in relation to compensation for the damages to which the company has claimed compensation for. That also means that neither Johan Lindgren nor the company will be able to bring action against the other party in relation to circumstances which are not included in the claims in the arbitration proceeding, for example a claim for damages or compensation which is supported by other causes for action than the causes for action which have been presented in the arbitration proceeding. Other information From an economic perspective, the settlement agreement will result in the following for the company. The company waives its claims for damages of approx. MSEK 7.6 and pays MSEK 3.8 to Johan Lindgren for his costs. The company will also have to pay social security contributions on the amount paid to Johan Lindgren. The company will not have to pay any amount in relation to Johan Lindgren’s requests against the company. The company will not incur further costs in relation to the arbitration proceeding. Eniro will be able to reverse the reserve of approx. MSEK 19.3, which is currently expected to give a positive impact on earnings of approx. MSEK 14. As a result of the settlement agreement, the company also waives further claims against Johan Lindgren for damages pursuant to the Swedish Companies Act. For a resolution by the General Meeting in accordance with this item to be valid, it is necessary that shareholders representing not less than one-tenth of all of the shares in the company do not vote against the proposal to approve the settlement agreement.

H&M Conscious Exclusive 2016 - Historic art inspires fashion for the future

"I am honoured to be the ambassador of such a unique project. I think that the idea of creating a collection inspired by the history of art and fashion is fantastic. Especially since it is made with innovative and sustainable materials which are the future of fashion" says Julia. Known for her distinctive, personal sense of style, Julia is the embodiment of effortless, conscious and modern cool. For this Conscious Exclusive collection the H&M design team has worked closely with the museum, delving into their collections of archival fashions as well as the work of artists such as Gustave Moreau to find inspiration. The outcome is a glamorous line of modern red carpet pieces infused with tactile charm, a nostalgic aesthetic and a historical legacy. "With this collection we brought the idea of sustainability to new levels. Working with new innovative materials such as beads and rhinestones made from recycled glass and Denimite, a material made from recycled worn-out denim. We have created contemporary styles imbued with a sophisticated charm" says Ann-Sofie Johansson, Creative Advisor at H&M. H&M will be the exclusive sponsor of the upcoming exhibition which will include selected styles from the H&M archives, including a look from the first ever H&M designer collaboration with Karl Lagerfeld in 2004 as well as one silhouette from the new Conscious Exclusive collection. The complete collection, featuring clothing and accessories for women, will be available from Thursday 7th April in around 180 stores worldwide and online at (

Further measures are needed to manage household indebtedness

The financial system is vulnerable to shocks The major Swedish banks are reporting high levels of profitability and the debt-servicing ability of their customers is good. This is contributing to the Riksbank's assessment that the financial system is currently working well. However, the Swedish banking system is also large and tightly interlinked. In addition, the major Swedish banks have a high proportion of wholesale funding, a large part of which is in foreign currency, as well as a low proportion of equity in relation to assets. This makes the banking system, and the financial system as a whole, sensitive to various economic shocks. High valuations and indebtedness entail risks Valuations on both the asset markets and the housing market in particular are unusually high at present. This means that the probability of a fall in prices is elevated. Together with increasing indebtedness in the household sector, this has made households, the financial institutions and the financial system as a whole more vulnerable. In the event of a serious economic shock, the consequences for the Swedish economy could be great. Measures needed to counteract household indebtedness It is of the greatest importance that the mandate for macroprudential policy of Finansinspektionen (the Swedish financial supervisory authority) be clarified as soon as possible so that efficient macroprudential policy can be conducted in Sweden. It is necessary that the Government and responsible authorities adopt, as a matter of urgency, further measures to reduce the risks inherent in the rising housing prices and households' high and rising indebtedness. Reforms on the housing market aimed at finding a better balance between supply and demand of housing may slow down the rise in housing prices and thereby also indebtedness. Reforms are also needed to reduce households' willingness to take on debt, such as gradual reductions to tax relief and loan-limiting measures such as an amortisation requirement and a debt-to-income limit. The Riksbank thus considers that there is an urgent need for a combination of measures to both subdue new lending and reduce the risks inherent in existing loans. The resilience of the major banks needs to be strengthened At the same time, it is important to reduce the vulnerability of the Swedish banking system. In recent years, the major Swedish banks have improved their resilience to both credit and liquidity risks. This is a positive development, but the Riksbank considers that the resilience of the major banks needs to be improved further. Firstly, the capital requirements for the banks should be tightened, for example by introducing a minimum leverage-ratio requirement. Secondly, the major banks should reduce their structural liquidity risks and increase their resilience to short-term liquidity stress in Swedish kronor. A press conference with the Governor of the Riksbank, Stefan Ingves, and Kasper Roszbach, Head of the Financial Stability Department, will be held today at 11:00 at the Riksbank. Press cards or equivalent must be shown. The press conference will be broadcast live on the Riksbank’s website,, where it will also be available to view afterwards.

Top class refrigeration

Pordenone, Italy, November 2015 The first mandatory Europe-wide energy labelling for professional refrigerators and freezers is on its way. Electrolux Professional’s new generation of ecostore - ecostoreHP - is already compatible with the requirements of top classes. The first compulsory energy labelling for professional refrigerated storage cabinets and counters sold across Europe will come into effect in July 2016. It is designed to drive energy efficiency and environmentally friendly business, as well as to provide an accurate and comparable classification based on energy consumption and the capability to perform efficiently within different environmental conditions. Based on the EU energy label, the new generation of Electrolux Professional’s ecostore refrigeration, ecostoreHP, is already compatible with the requirements of top classes, being a leading range for energy efficiency, storage capacity and performance. A new generation of energy efficiency “A professional refrigerator wastes 10 times more than a domestic version. Therefore the EU energy label can really make the difference when it comes to restaurateurs consciously choosing their ideal cabinet with objective information at their disposal”, states Massimiliano Falcioni, Head of Refrigeration Category at Electrolux Professional. Energy consumption is the key criteria when it comes to selecting the ideal appliance to minimize environmental impact, while optimizing business advantages for catering professionals: ecostoreHPis in class A, where A denotes the most efficient energy saving products (*). From customer insight to leading design “The development of the ecostore range was based on extensive customer insight, which highlighted the storage capacity as one of the most important benefits of professional cabinets: the net volume allows the improved possibility to select the number and typology of appliances to purchase”, says Falcioni. ecostoreHPoffers the highest real usable space for food storage available on the market: 50 litres more compared to market average for single door cabinets and 120 litres more compared to market average for double door cabinets. Top performance under demanding conditions “Safety is essential when it comes to food. The ecostore range is designed to ensure optimal temperature uniformity and therefore excellent food preservation with any loading condition”, concludes Falcioni. The new labelling scheme also indicates the capability of the product to guarantee the best performances in heavy duty working conditions, and classifies ecostoreHPas level 5, meaning the cabinet can perform at 40°C ambient temperature and 40% humidity. (*) Energy savings up to 830 €/year (freezer) and up to 300 €/year (refrigerator). Potential savings based on European Ecodesign directive data and obtained by comparing Class G refrigerators and freezers with equivalent Class A cabinets (energy cost of 0,21 €/kWh and net volume of 503lt). Electrolux Professional offers food service and laundry solutions to a wide variety of customers around the world, from restaurants and hotels to healthcare and other service facilities. Our 2,000 service partners in 140 countries ensure that our resource-efficient equipment, leading in innovation and design, improve our customer's everyday business. In 2013, Electrolux Professional had sales of EUR 640 million, 2.600 employees, 7 factories and over 1.000 dealers. For more information, visit

Geoff Crocker Unveils Masterwork Exploring the Philosophy of Technology

International consultant and academic Geoff Crocker blends a number of disciplines in a new book that explores the multifaceted relationship between technology and humanity. Written as a theoretical and practical resource for students, academics and business executives alike, ‘A Managerial Philosophy of Technology’ discusses a radical new approach to exploring and managing this symbiotic association. With a first class honours degree in economics and an MA in Philosophy of Science, Crocker has over two decades of corporate experience. Following an initial career in aerospace with Rolls Royce, he worked as a technology market advisor and strategist for international clients including IBM, Yamaha and ABB. The rapid development of the Russian industrial economy went on to absorb his attention, with Crocker developing and implementing corporate strategies for major clients in sectors including SUEK, Power Machines Group, Ilim Pulp, United Heavy Machinery and EBRD. The Russian government later sought his advice on several key issues such as the impact of WTO membership, as well as strategy for the national coal industry. This position led to Crocker authoring the sector’s International Energy Agency report. Building on vast applied experience, Crocker has penned a pioneering piece that combines an academic interest in the philosophy of technology with practical methodologies for business management of technology strategy. Conceptual, practical, academic and managerial, the book offers readers a holistic overview of the complex and interdependent relationship between next generation technologies and humankind. Throughout the book Crocker develops a new systems network concept which demonstrates how the symbiosis between humanity and technology is mediated through science, the economy, productivity and social structure. “The relationship between technology and humanity has been a lifelong fascination of mine, and I’m delighted to have the opportunity to explore the bond in a theoretical analysis that does every element of the symbiosis justice,” says Crocker. Given its multidisciplinary approach, ‘A Managerial Philosophy of Technology’ is a valuable tool for a diverse reader base. Students and academics studying the philosophy of technology at technical universities and MBA schools such as Imperial College London, UMIST, Cranfield, LBS, Insead, Harvard and Wharton Can take much from the thought-provoking evaluation. Likewise, technology companies and their directors are offered thoughts on leveraging the relationship between products and consumers, while business executives are given insight into using technology to maximise business value. The book also serves as a highly constructive resource for government agencies, members of technology strategy boards, EU technology centres and any other professionals concerned with the world’s relationship with technology. Crocker is currently presenting his work at conference seminars, academic lectures and other events.

Semcon offers unique Virtual Reality software for industry

The new VirDa software handles 3D models from most CAD systems that can be experienced in Oculus Rift, a Virtual Reality headset, so far mainly used by the gaming industry. VirDa is a unique software for Oculus Rift, currently only available from Semcon. Michael Holmudden from Semcon, himself a gaming enthusiast, also saw the potential of using Oculus Rift technology at work as a product development construction engineer. Along with his colleague Jesper Lundkvist, he began developing his own software for providing 3D customer solutions for Virtual Reality environments. The result, VirDa, provides an extra, very real, monitoring phase, before committing to the extremely costly production phase. “The first customer to use the technology had planned a completely new production facility, which Semcon developed the 3D layout for. Using VirDa we were able to navigate around the production environment using Oculus Rift together with the customer and find improvement potential for where forklift aisles were located,” says Michael Holmudden. The latest version of VirDa manages to include complete structures of 3D objects and create an even greater sense of reality. The technology’s biggest potential is in detail-rich environments, such as driver cabs, production lines or oil platforms. In the future it may be possible for project members at various sites around the world to navigate these environments, during the same meeting. VirDa can also be used to scale up very small components to many times their size, such as the inner workings of a watch, and then study it close up. “Using VirDa you get a much more direct, visual experience. It is also an absolute delight to work with, both for me as a developer and for the customers. It allows us to understand the solution a lot quicker and makes it easier to make decisions,” Michael Holmudden says. Semcon has extensive experience of working with 3D technology, in everything from robot programming to creating products and complete production lines. VirDa is a natural way of taking the technology to the next level, and one of many examples of how Semcon is simplifying and streamlining things for its customers. Link to film presenting VirDa (

During this meeting Bill Cronin was elected to the Board and the issuance of warrants to the US management team was also approved. · The subscription period for the warrants expired in September and in total 82 000 warrants were subscribed for out of the 168 000 that were covered by the resolution from the shareholders meeting. The price per warrant was SEK 2.03 and each warrant entitles the holder to subscribe for shares in the company at a price of 29.40 per share during June 2018. Significant events after the period end · In November, TÜV SÜD, Dignitana´s Notified Body, successfully performed the annual quality audit for keeping the CE certificate. No major nonconformities were noted. · Dignitana received a US patent for the design of the labyrinth paths in its cooling cap, DigniCap®. The patent extends to 2031. Previously, the same patent has been granted in Europe, China, Korea and Japan. Comments from Jan Richardsson, CEO, Dignitana AB (publ) During the last quarter we have been fully focused on getting the approval from the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) for our scalp cooling system, DigniCap®. When the submission was converted from a PMA to a De Novo 510(k) we had hoped for a faster process. The positive is that the slow handling has not been because of Dignitana, but because of we have submitted an extensive submission that has taken FDA some time to go through. We are in an intensive contact with FDA at the moment and we feel that FDA is doing everything they can in order to speed up the handling process. It has been a long process, but I am confident that we shall receive the FDA approval shortly. We have used this time to build out our sales and support team in the US so that once our system is cleared for use we will be able to be in a position to commercialize DigniCap® quickly. There are several reasons why the US will be our most important market in the future. First it is by far the largest medical device market in the world, secondly the frequency of breast cancer is high and increasing (230 000 new breast cancer cases per year). The payment model (pay-per-treatment) that we will use in the US will eventually create consistent profitability. The new business model is based on the fact that our systems shall be used at high frequency and therefore our employees need to be active educating and informing the hospitals. To maintain control and ensure over the adoption and usage process we have decided to have our own staff on the field that focus only on our product instead of going through a distributor. We have succeeded in attracting staff who previously worked with scalp cooling and they will become employees of Dignitana, Inc. as soon as FDA has given us their clearance. Dignitana, Inc. will be headquartered in Dallas with personnel across the United States in key regional markets. Sales to end customers continue to increase for Sysmex in 2015, but they still believe that their stock is too large. Sysmex has a team of 5 people who works exclusively with the sale of our scalp cooling system, DigniCap®. An interesting development is that Sysmex has started receiving orders sponsored by charity organizations. As mentioned in the previous report, we have agreed with Sysmex that they may forego the agreed volumes this year in order to work through existing inventory and put themselves in a better position for future growth opportunities. Konica Minolta is continuing with its efforts to obtain reimbursement in China. For the Chinese State to determine which reimbursement it will allow, Konica Minolta have to conduct clinical trials in each state they want to sell in. At the same time they are preparing to submit an application for market approval in Japan. They will initiate the PMDA application upon FDA clearance. Financial Comments · As of this Q3 report Dignitana AB reports consolidated group financials, including the subsidiary Dignitana, Inc. Costs related to the subsidiary starting September 1, are now being paid by Dignitana, Inc. FDA-related costs will continue to be capitalized in the Parent Company. The Company reports no comparative figures for the Group as it did not exist during 2014. · Own work capitalized in the income statement amounts to 66 TSEK during Q3 and refers to the time Dignitana staff has put into the FDA project. Along with the other costs of the clinical study and FDA project these costs are capitalized as intangible assets. The total amount of intangible assets amounted to SEK 12.6 million SEK. DigniCap® system including accessories used in the clinical study are capitalized as tangible assets and depreciated over five years. The value of these amounts to 1.1 million SEK. · Dignitana AB costs in the United States to set up the subsidiary and prepare for the launch cannot be capitalized as assets. These costs are included in the external costs, amounting to about 1.7 million SEK for Q3 and accumulated to 3.5 million SEK for the whole year. · During the start-up of the subsidiary in the US, Dignitana AB provided a shareholder contribution and a long-term loan to the subsidiary. · Inventory in stock is higher than the corresponding period last year, as the company manufactured and built inventory ready to be delivered upon clearance from the FDA.

Diaverum presents d.ACADEMY in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia

Munich / Al Khobar (Saudi Arabia) – 25 November 2015: Diaverum, one of the leading renal care providers worldwide, presented its innovative educational platform d.ACADEMY in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The core curriculum for physician training was a three-day educational symposium of d.ACADEMY held in Al Khobar, Saudi Arabia. The event addressed Diaverum nephrologists but also attracted press and high officials from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. At the event, Prof Jörgen Hegbrant, Chief Medical Officer at Diaverum, stated that with d.ACADEMY, our new educational platform, Diaverum once more proves to be a “leader in the renal industry” with strong focus on delivering world-class medical quality. “As a product-independent provider, our staff is our key asset. Providing the best education to them as well as to our patients, nurses and management will further improve the quality of life of our patients,” said Prof Hegbrant. The virtual university d.ACADEMY is a comprehensive, state-of-the-art educational offer aimed at medical staff as well as patients, nurses and managers. As with all Diaverum activities, the programme is first and foremost people-centric. Prof Giovanni Strippoli, Academic Chairman of d.ACADEMY, said we are very pleased to offer this programme globally and particularly in Saudi Arabia. “Here, we are experiencing large growth and piloting innovative methods to boost medical quality and performance. The d.ACADEMY is our strategic action to improve the level of knowledge within the community, targeted at our internal staff including doctors, nurses, management and also patients,” he explained. “Knowledge is power,” he added, “and success is not counted by how high we climb, but by how many people we bring with us,” said Prof Strippoli. The physician education programme offers educational modules for existing doctors, both senior medical leadership and junior doctors or physicians who join the group in new countries where medical standards are different compared to Europe. The programme is based on a number of educational classrooms available via a learning management system, and currently covers more than 50 topics in nephrology, dialysis and transplantation, with a strong agenda for future development and scalability. The nurse education programme focuses on the practical aspects of patient care and includes classroom training, e-learning and tutorials, all available via d.ACADEMY learning management system. This comprehensive and hands-on educational programme has its roots in Diaverum’s Competence in Practice programme, which has been accredited by EDTNA/ERCPA. The patient education programme guides patients on how to best live their lives with chronic kidney disease. It includes information about kidney disease and the basic procedures for treatment, how to choose between different treatments, how to understand lab results, what to eat and drink as a kidney patient and how to interact with the clinic. The education is offered to all patients in all countries and comes in the form of ‘classrooms’ on the internet, an e-learning platform and a booklet. The roll-out has already started and the programme is highly appreciated by all patients. Finally, a manager module is in the pipeline, based on existing management training offered by Diaverum to its key management executives. Commenting on the programme, Prof Ayman Karkar, Medical Director Diaverum Middle East and Head of Physician Education of the d.ACADEMY, said: “We were extremely pleased to see so many Saudi and internationally renowned experts coming together in a specially designed training curriculum to exchange best practices and take their first steps into the d.ACADEMY. The programme will be rolled out globally, making the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia the first to pioneer delivering world-class medical training via high-quality physician education.”

Sectra demonstrates integrated diagnostics solution at RSNA – a common backbone for Radiology and Pathology IT enabling improved cancer care

Displaying radiology and pathology images side-by-side is one of the benefits of an integrated diagnostics solution. “The solution supports radiologists and pathologists in conducting more efficient, patient-centered multi-disciplinary team meetings or tumor boards, with an enhanced level of quality, by providing access to all relevant clinical information and a complete patient imaging record. For the IT department, a common backbone has clear advantages – for example, it results in one less IT system and departmental infrastructure to manage, as well as less integration and fewer interfaces with surrounding healthcare IT systems, such as the EMR,” says Mats Björnemo, Vice President of Product Management at Sectra. Digitizing pathology The digitization of pathology is an enabler and a prerequisite for increased collaboration across specialties. Sectra’s solution for digital pathology is built on the same platform as its radiology PACS, enabling bi-directional sharing of images and reports, thus creating transparency across cancer care pathways. This transparency allows for correlation of findings and provides a broader view of patient disease that helps physicians to reach more accurate diagnosis and treatment decisions. In addition, hospitals’ maintenance and operating costs are reduced by digitizing pathology on the same platform as radiology. Increasing efficiency of the multi-disciplinary team meetings Sectra’s solutions for radiology and pathology both include functionality for preparation and presentation at multi-disciplinary team meetings. The joint platform enables pathologists and radiologists to add images to the same list during the actual review work. The annotations and image settings established during the review are then applied automatically, streamlining the preparation workflow. During the presentation, radiologists and pathologists can use the same system to show images and annotations, and to administrate follow-up tasks. At RSNA, we will demonstrate our integrated diagnostics solution, as well as our dedicated tools for multi-disciplinary team meetings. Booth 6113 ( Disclaimer: Digital pathology for primary diagnosis has not yet been approved by the FDA. Therefore, the solution will be demonstrated as a work in progress for US customers. Focus on cancer care Pathology and radiology are key services, and images and reports from these two diagnostic services are central to effective cancer care. Both of these medical disciplines are extremely dependent on access to adequate clinical information to be able to provide correct responses and reports to the responsible physicians, surgeons and oncologists and to the patient. To enable the care provider to give better, faster and more patient-centered care, Sectra offers systems and services for comprehensive handling and storage of all types of medical images – primarily for large image diagnostics services, such as radiology, breast imaging and pathology, but also for other departments where medical image material is used. Medical images for cancer diagnostics constitute a common thread through Sectra’s offering.

Cool customer Morgan McLernon signs up to EFFITIRES™ by Michelin solutions

Chilled and frozen food transportation specialist Morgan McLernon has signed up its 530 commercial vehicle assets to EFFITIRES™ by Michelin solutions, with the Northern Ireland-based company ruling the tyre management package “comprehensive and cost-effective”. The price-per-kilometre (PPK) deal covers the company’s fleet of DAF, MAN, Renault, Scania and Volvo tractor units. The firm’s mixed fleet of Chereau, Gray & Adams, Montracon and Schmitz Cargobull trailers is also covered, as are the company’s rigid trucks. The agreement replaces a previous arrangement which saw Morgan McLernon operating a mixed tyre policy through a local service provider. Michael McLernon, Managing Director at Morgan McLernon, says: “Our deliveries are always highly time-sensitive, so keeping our trucks on the road safely and with a minimum of downtime is absolutely essential. Since signing up to the EFFITIRES™ programme, our fleet downtime has fallen to an all-time low, and Michelin solutions’ tyre management expertise is helping us get the best from every casing in terms of longevity, safety and durability. “Outsourcing tyre management to a company of Michelin’s pedigree is proving a truly cost-effective solution for a fleet of our size,” McLernon adds. “The comprehensive programme offers a predictable tyre budget linked to fleet activity, and allows us to keep up to date with tyre usage statistics through regular reporting and feedback. It means we can make informed business decisions without the need to crunch the numbers ourselves.” The company’s fleet will fit Michelin X MultiWay 3D XDE drive and XZE all-position tyres – the manufacturer’s latest generation regional tread pattern, which offers a strong combination of fuel efficiency and mileage performance, plus an improved resistance to accidental shoulder damage. Trailers will benefit from Michelin’s sturdy X Multi T tyres. Michelin solutions adopted a joint approach to Morgan McLernon’s EFFITIRES™ programme alongside local service provider A One Tyres, a Michelin Durable Partner, which will remain responsible for supporting the company’s fleet. Signing up to the EFFITIRES™ solution provides Morgan McLernon with the services of a dedicated team of business support personnel, auditors and fleet operators, to ensure its tyres are serviced to the highest possible standards.

The firm counts big-name supermarkets Aldi, Lidl and Tesco among its customers, as well as global logistics provider DHL. ends About Michelin solutions Michelin solutions was established as a new company within the Michelin Group in May 2013, replacing the entity previously known in the UK as Michelin Fleet Solutions.

Leading Economist Geoff Crocker Challenges Chancellor’s Welfare Cuts with Basic Income theory

The noted UK economist Geoff Crocker has challenged the Chancellor’s unpopular austerity measures in a new paper which suggests a Basic Income approach is the only way to effectively manage the current UK deficit. Calling the Chancellor’s planned welfare cuts ‘defective’ on three levels, Crocker’s Basic Income theory is detailed in depth in his latest paper, ‘The Economic Necessity of Basic Income (http://file:///C:/Users/Treace/Downloads/’, published by the Centre for Welfare Reform. Crocker says the welfare cuts – which are expected to leave the country’s worst off in an ever more precarious position as benefits such as tax credits are slashed – are technically, practically and morally incorrect. He says, “The burden of these welfare cuts will fall unequally on lower income earners and families. The distribution of the national income will yet again be skewed in favour of the rich and against the poor. “The Chancellor fundamentally believes that the government budget can be balanced, or even run in surplus. Facts prove him wrong. He has been unable to eliminate the deficit. He will not be able to eliminate it. In modern high technology, high productivity economies, deficit is inevitable, and manageable. “In seeking to eliminate deficit and balance the budget, the Chancellor feels forced to either increase taxation, or reduce spending. He has largely chosen the latter, and proposes a £multi-billion reduction in welfare spending. This will feed straight through to an equally large reduction in demand in the economy. This is the last thing the economy needs, since deficient demand continues to be the problem, as output growth exceeds wage growth in economies with increasingly automated production.” Crocker’s Basic Income proposition relies on a radical triangle which challenges the traditional notion that the 2007 economic crisis was due to greedy bankers and incompetent governments. He asserts that technology-led growth in productivity exceeds real wage growth, which in turn leads to deficient macroeconomic demand. It is this deficient macroeconomic demand that led to the crisis. He says, “Money is virtual, needing to be supported only by output GDP. Deficits are inevitable and manageable in advanced technology economies.” Crocker’s Basic Income theory paper calls for a new paradigm. It demonstrates that current economic systems are actually creating the current economic crisis and that the use of a basic income would help put the country back onto a better path.

New ALPINA D3 Bi-Turbo and B3 Bi-Turbo  now available in UK

The latest generation of the world’s fastest production diesel saloon and estate is now available in the UK following their international reveal at the Frankfurt autoshow in September. With 350 hp and a remarkable 700 Nm of torque, the new ALPINA D3 Bi-Turbo Saloon and D3 Bi-Turbo Touring will catapult their occupants from zero to 62 mph in just 4.6 seconds and on to 170 mph, yet both offer luxury motoring at over 50 mpg with low CO2 emissions that will slash Benefit-in-Kind taxation for drivers of high-performance company cars. “The combination of comfort, near-supercar performance, superb quality, low emissions and modest thirst for fuel makes these cars a remarkable achievement for ALPINA’s engineers,” comments ALPINA GB brand manager Gary Lott. “By focussing on just one type of customer – who wants a car that he or she can look forward to driving every day, whether they are commuting to meetings or sensing every nuance of a twisting Alpine pass  – they have created a car that is widely regarded as the most broadly accomplished high-performance luxury car available anywhere today.” Launched alongside the new D3 Bi-Turbo is the petrol equivalent, the 188 mph B3 Bi-Turbo. Both new ALPINAs include the complete range of upgrades recently released on BMW’s 3-Series range, on which the ALPINA cars are based. These include a more prominent BMW kidney grill, restyled front and rear lights both now using the latest LED (Light Emitting Diode) technology, broader side airvents, more luxurious interior materials and additional safety and comfort equipment. Visually identical, the D3 Bi-Turbo and B3 Bi-Turbo also receive new ALPINA front and rear spoilers developed in BMW’s wind tunnel, with bespoke exhaust tailpipes integrated into the new rear valance. Both cars have been developed by ALPINA’s team of 70 engineers using design and validation processes identical to those implemented by BMW. ALPINA’s enhancements reach throughout the vehicle, including the engine, gearbox, cooling system, body structure, wheels, tyres, aerodynamics, suspension and interior. Bespoke Luxury Standard equipment includes an eight-speed automatic gearbox, ALPINA Adaptive M Sport Suspension, a four outlet exhaust with an ‘intelligent’ acoustic valve, leather upholstery, electrically adjustable heated sports seats, climate control and 19” ALPINA alloy wheels in the company’s famous Classic design. Inside, there are luxury carpet overmats and subtle ALPINA logos on the seat backs and door sills. The instruments are in ALPINA Blue and the steering wheel is covered in finest-quality, hand-stitched Lavalina leather. Every car is finished with a model plaque displayed on the centre console, showing the car’s unique build number. In addition to being available with all BMW options including those from BMW Individual, the D3 Bi-Turbo and B3 Bi‑Turbo can receive almost limitless personalisation from ALPINA’s craftsmen. Alongside the famous ALPINA Blue and ALPINA Green signature paintwork, choices include hand-stitched full leather interiors of superb quality and a wide range of hand-finished woods for the dashboard and doors. ALPINA has worked closely with BMW since 1961, with shared warranty coverage since 1964. Based in Buchloe just outside Munich, the company was registered as an automobile manufacturer to ISO standards in 1983. Around 200 cars a year sold in the UK with total production around 1,700.

We build only 1,700 cars a year, so we can do things that would not be possible in volume production.” Powertrain – D3 Bi-Turbo The ALPINA D3 Bi-Turbo’s lightweight powertrain is based on BMW’s aluminium three litre straight six, running ALPINA’s own engine control unit with bespoke software. Offering a combined cycle fuel economy of 53 mpg and CO2 emissions of just 139 g/km, it is exceptionally clean and efficient for such a high-performance and responsive unit. ALPINA has specified two small, variable geometry turbochargers (rather than one larger Twinpower unit) because their lower inertia allows them to respond very quickly. These are fed from larger intake ducts with optimised radii, allowing the engine to breathe more freely by reducing induction air pressure losses by 30 percent compared with the standard system. The result of complex fluid dynamics modelling, the bespoke induction system supports increased engine output as well as improving throttle response. A 20 percent larger intercooler with flow-optimised aluminium ducting increases the density of the fuel / air mixture to further enhance engine performance. Although optimised for fast road driving rather than track use, BMW ALPINA cars are engineered to provide consistent performance and high reliability when driven hard for long periods. Central to this ability is the enhanced powertrain cooling system. An additional radiator in the engine cooling circuit is mounted behind the bespoke front spoiler, which also directs air to the new, high-flow oil cooler. Control is provided by a dedicated thermal systems control unit that uses information from the vehicle’s databus to optimise powertrain temperatures and to reduce parasitic loading on the engine by momentarily switching off the fan when maximum acceleration is required. ALPINA has paid equal attention to the hot side of the engine. The bespoke, free-flow exhaust manifold is manufactured from high carbon steel with a cobalt addition to provide very high temperature resistance. The light-weight, quad-outlet exhaust system, developed with specialist supplier Akrapovic, is optimised for gas flow as well as for acoustic characteristics, which are enhanced by opening a computer-controlled valve when the Drive Performance Control is in Sport mode and when the system identifies spirited driving. The eight speed transmission has been developed in partnership with ZF to provide a very fast shift speed while ensuring durability with the D3 Bi-Turbo’s immense torque. Around 20 percent of the system is bespoke, developed with ZF specifically for ALPINA. Linked to recalibrated software, the system provides smooth, comfortable gear changes with no noticeable interruption to power delivery. In Manual mode, the driver can take complete control of the transmission using the unique ALPINA Switch-Tronic buttons on the back of the steering wheel for intuitive fingertip control. The driveshafts and differential are also reinforced and a limited slip differential is available as an option. Ride and Handling The combination of incredible performance and low emissions is matched by a remarkable ride quality and superb dynamics from the chassis. Bespoke ALPINA springs with a 40 percent higher rate work with bespoke roll-control bars, bushings and bump stops. The four-setting variable damper control has been recalibrated to provide softer compression and stiffer rebound. The system works with the revised springs and bushes to provide superb body control, particularly in the sports settings, while allowing excellent bump absorption. Front camber and toe-in are optimised and a front body strengthening brace, designed specifically for the D3 Bi-Turbo, is fitted to further enhance steering feel, turn-in and dynamic consistency. Wheels are ALPINA’s legendary ‘Classic’ style, in a new 19” design carrying non-run-flat Michelin Pilot Super Sport tyres developed in partnership with the tyre company specifically for the D3 Bi-Turbo. Enhanced tread stability and a new flank reinforcement technology reduces temperature spikes during very hard driving, ensuring consistently excellent grip in the dry complemented by a bi-compound running surface to ensure equally outstanding performance in the wet. Softer side walls contribute to the car’s superb ride quality and refinement. Brembo callipers in ALPINA Blue announce a bespoke braking system with 370 mm discs and four piston callipers at the front and 345 mm discs with twin piston callipers at the rear. The pad specification has been selected to provide excellent temperature stability to ensure consistently good stopping performance and pedal feel during hard use without compromising feel or refinement when being driven more gently. To help ensure that every aspect of the suspension works perfectly together, ALPINA has recalibrated the control software for the power steering, the Dynamic Stability Control and the Dynamic Traction Control. “This is a great example of the attention to detail that is applied to optimise the entire car as a unified driving system,” says Bovensiepen. “Optimising the DSC for our wheel and tyre combination means that we can deliver more performance and greater safety, with unobtrusive intervention helping to make the vehicle feel wonderfully neutral at its dynamic limits.” Styling and Aerodynamics The appearance of an ALPINA has always been a distinctive blend of function and style. The new front spoiler provides the necessary airflow to the front brakes and through the additional heat exchangers and also works with the bespoke rear spoiler to reduce high-speed lift to almost zero. ALPINA and Diesel: a winning combination In 1998, at the request of BMW, Andreas Bovensiepen with other leading drivers pioneered the now highly successful use of diesel in endurance motorsport when they won the Nurburgring 24hr at the wheel of an ALPINA BMW 320d. Soon after, ALPINA launched the D10 Bi-Turbo, then the world’s fastest production diesel saloon. “BMW was the first major vehicle manufacturer to recognise the potential of diesel in motorsport and ALPINA was the first constructor to win with this fuel, which has a significantly higher energy density than petrol,” he recalls. “It was an exciting time, doing something genuinely different and winning. The ALPINA D3 Bi-Turbo follows in this tradition.” TECHNICAL DATAALPINA D3 Bi_TURBO                                                                                      Saloon                                   Touring Weight (kg unladen)                                                       1,660                                     1,730 Length (mm)                                                                   4,632                                     4,632 Width (mm)                                                                     1,811                                     1,811 Engine                                                                             6 in-line                                 6 in-line Displacement (cm3)                                                        2993                                      2993 Bore (mm)                                                                       84.0                                       84.0 Stroke (mm)                                                                    90.0                                       90.0 Maximum output (kW / hp)                                             257 / 350 from 4000 rpm Max. torque (Nm)                                                           700 from 1500 rpm to 3000 rpm Front wheels and tyres                                                   8 x 19“ 245/35 ZR19 Rear wheels and tyres                                                   9 x 19“ 265/35 ZR19 Emissions classification                                                 Euro 6 Acceleration 0-62 mph (sec)                                          4.6                                          4.6 Top speed (mph)                                                           171                                         170 Fuel consumption Urban (mpg)                                     47.1                                        46.3 Extra-urban (mpg)                                                          57.7                                        56.5 Combined (mpg)                                                            53.3                                         52.3 CO2 emissions (g/km)                                                    139                                         142

Rebel Brewery Show Cornwall’s ONLY showing of austerity Britain film

Penryn’s Rebel Brewing Co have laid their malty hands on a copy of the long awaited Sleaford Mods’ Invisible Britain film. Documenting how the communities and people of Britain responded to austerity measures in the run up to this year’s election. The film also follows media darlings Sleaford Mods as they tour the country, visiting the boarded up and broken down places, often hidden from view. Set within an industrial estate, The Rebel Brewery is an apt location for Cornwall’s only showing of this important documentary. Having just celebrated winning the Supreme Champion Beer award for their 80 Shilling ale, Rebel are refurbishing the brewery in preparation for upped production. The showing of the film will herald in the new look shop, bar and tour space housed within the brewery at Kernick Industrial Estate, Penryn. Of this news, film maker Paul Sng said, “We decided to show the film in both cinemas and non-film related venues, so that people would have an opportunity to see the documentary in different environments. We also wanted to work with local businesses and individuals within communities, in keeping with the issues the film examines. Rebel Brewing Company was an obvious choice once Rebel approached us.” Following the installation of their new brew kit back in the spring this year, Rebel have been producing somewhere in the region of 18,000 pints a week of their high quality craft ales from Cornwall. Founder of the company, Rob Lowe said, “Rebel have enjoyed hosting different events at the brewery and we are really excited to be showing Cornwall’s only viewing of this look at broken Britain. We are also big fans of the Sleaford Mods, so it’s a win to get the film down here.” Expected to be popular with students, Rebel launched The Rebel Club this year. Members can receive up to 10% off Rebel’s beers, even at the student bar and various other goodies by signing up to Cornwall’s first brewery member’s club. More details of this can be found at Notes for editors Where: Rebel Brewing Co, Century House, Kernick Industrial Estate, Penryn, TR10 9EP When: Wednesday 9th December.

Resurs Holding – interim report Jan–Sep 2015

STATEMENT BY THE CEO:Continued growth and exciting new acquisitionsThe Resurs Group continued its positive development during the third quarter, with good growth in all three segments. Our figures also reflect the high activity level of our retail partners during the summer months. Within the Payment Solutions segment, we continued to add new partnerships to our growing base of over 1,000 retail partners and e-commerce companies. This unique partnership platform, still the core of ourbusiness model, creates opportunities for our other businesses on a daily basis. Our Supreme Card – now celebrating its 10th year – has grown well in Denmark, Norway and Finland, in line with our growth plan. The Consumer Loans segment performed well during the quarter, driven by product launches and market activities targeting our customer base and brokers. In July, we announced the acquisition of the NorwegianyA Bank. We have been following this company for some time and have been impressed by them. The consumer loan brokerage business is larger in Norway than in Sweden, and the business model needs to beadapted to local conditions. We now have a good opportunity to do so. With yA Bank, Resurs has a much stronger foothold in Norway and consequently greater opportunities to cross-sell the Group’s entire productrange. Norway is now our second-largest market, with 25 percent of our credit portfolio (formerly 11 percent). The transaction has been finalized in the beginning of the fourth quarter. We also secured additional partnerships within the Insurance segment, within different industries. Our acquisition of Falck’s bicycle insurance business earlier this year has paved the way for a large number of new partnerships. Premium income has increased and affected the operating profit positively, while it was negatively affected by lower yields on securities. Our owners initiated a process during the quarter under which they are evaluating a variety of strategic alternatives for Resurs Group’s continued ownership and which may result in a stock market listing of Resurs Holding. This work has been interesting and intensive and has involved making additions to our Board of Directors and management team. Regardless of the outcome of the process, my management team and I are lookingforward to leveraging our tested and successful business model and continue to develop Resurs, on our long and stable growth journey.

Edinburgh Computer Repair Shop to Send Uber for Customers

A computer repair chain in Edinburgh and Glasgow has taken customer service to the next level by launching a new scheme to help customers who can’t travel to get to their local store. SimplyFixIt will send a free Uber for those who find it hard to reach one of the tech team’s experts via public transport or simply don’t want to look for parking. Any number of unforeseen services can make that all-important trip to get a broken machine repaired a hassle. Car broken down for example, the dread of using public transport while carrying heavy equipment or even that most daunting of all scenarios, parking in a central location! To avoid all this, SimplyFixIt’s partnership with Uber to transport customers directly to their stores is inspired. The computer guru’s at SimplyFixIt have five separate stores in Edinburgh City centre, one in Glasgow City centre, one in Juniper Green and one in Dalkeith. In addition to the convenient locations, the Uber service makes it truly effortless to get the best technical support around. Jason Eccles, General Manager at SimplyFixIt said, “We already do our absolute best in store to provide a cutting edge level of customer service, in terms of friendly helpful staff, pricing, turnaround speed and our level of expertise. But we wanted to really make a statement to show our dedication to our customers, both existing and new. We’ve removed all of the external factors and potential gripes of getting to our stores away by working with Uber to provide a simple and easy solution.” The Uber service with SimplyFixIt is easy to use. Contact SimplyFixit, either by phone on 0800 193 4948 or online using the email form at If the problem requires a trip to store, the technician will arrange for an Uber car to be dispatched for you and your device. Uber is a smartphone app which connects customers to taxi drivers. The app provides vehicle information and driver details so the passenger knows exactly who is collecting them and when. In standard consumer use you can even pay via the app itself. With this service though, there’s nothing to pay at all, as all costs are covered by the SimplyFixIt. What’s more, in Scotland, every driver has been vetted and must be licensed by the local council in order to accept fares via the Uber app. SimplyFixIt is a multi-platform technical device repair and consultancy service with multiple stores across Edinburgh & Glasgow. Established in 1996, and employing both Microsoft & Apple Certified technicians, they are uniquely placed to be able to repair Apple Macs, iPhones, iPads and Windows based laptops to the highest quality level. For customers who do opt to travel in their own car, SimplyFixIt will pay for parking. For details of locations and for further information about the services available, visit the secure website

ICA Real Estate and Första AP-fonden form Secore Fastigheter

The formation of the jointly owned company is in line with ICA Real Estate’s strategy to maintain ICA’s influence in the respective marketplaces while freeing up capital for future investments. The company, which is 50%-owned each by ICA and Första AP-fonden, will have an initial property portfolio worth approximately SEK 1.1 billion. The company’s aim is to buy and own ICA stores in strategic locations. ICA Real Estate Sweden will continue to manage the sold store properties. “The formation of Secore Fastigheter together with Första AP-fonden will create the conditions for ICA to maintain its influence over marketplaces at the same time that we free up capital,” comments Lena Broberg, CEO of ICA Real Estate. “We have very positive experience from our joint ownership in Ancore with Alecta, and we are very happy to have formed an additional collaboration with a strong and long-term investor.” Johan Magnusson, CEO of Första AP-fonden, comments: “Real estate is an important component in Första AP-fonden’s long-term investments. It is therefore gratifying to enter into this partnership with ICA Gruppen. It gives us an opportunity to invest in a portfolio of commercial properties that are occupied under long-term leases.” The 13 store properties being acquired by the jointly owned company are Maxi ICA Stormarknad Hässleholm, Maxi ICA Stormarknad Motala, Maxi ICA Stormarknad Kristinehamn, Maxi ICA Stormarknad Bromölla, ICA Supermarket Simrishamn, ICA Supermarket Perstorp, ICA Supermarket Sölvesborg, ICA Supermarket Eksjö, ICA Supermarket Hedemora, ICA Supermarket Alunda, ICA Ettan i Västerås (ICA Supermarket), ICA Nära Katrineholm and ICA Supermarket Österbybruk, and comprise a total area of slightly more than 55,000 square metres. The company will be 60%-financed through external funding. The sale of these properties by ICA Real Estate will generate a capital gain of approximately SEK 300 million, of which half will be recognised during the fourth quarter of 2015. The second half of the capital gain, which will be treated as an internal gain for accounting purposes, will be recognised successively over the coming years. ICA Real Estate has since previously been a partner in the jointly owned property company Ancore Fastigheter together with the occupational pensions company Alecta. Ancore Fastigheter’s strategy is to continue growing. Secore Fastigheter’s acquisition of the 13 store properties is expected to be completed in December 2015. Catella Corporate Finance has served as adviser for the transaction. For more informationICA Gruppen press service, Telephone number: +46 10 422 52 52 ICA Gruppen discloses the information provided herein pursuant to the Securities Market Act and/or the Financial Instruments Trading Act.

New strategy for profitable growth at NCC

This was announced at NCC’s Capital Markets Day on Thursday. “We have noted that streamlined, specialized companies have greater opportunities for growth and profitability.  With our new specialized Nordic organization, we will become more efficient and increase our profitability. At the same time, we expect to grow by focusing on segments with growth potential, such as large-scale infrastructure projects and refurbishment.  Achieving this goal will create conditions for investment in further growth – through acquisitions, for example,” says Peter Wågström, President and CEO of NCC. NCC (excluding Housing) has defined the following strategic objectives for the Group for the 2016-2020 strategy period: ·An operating margin of at least 4 percent during the strategy period ·Average annual sales growth of 5 percent during the strategy period ·Annual return on equity after tax of at least 20 percent ·Net indebtedness of less than 2.5 times EBITDA ·Equity/assets ratio of at least 20 percent ·Reduction of the accident frequency rate by half by 2020 (compared with the 2015 outcome) ·Reduction of NCC’s CO2emissions by half by 2020 (compared with the 2015 outcome) Dividend policy: at least 40 percent of profit for the year after tax to be distributed to shareholders. The following financial objectives apply for the three businesses and business areas: ·NCC Industry: Operating margin of at least 4 percent, and average annual return on capital employed of at least 10 percent, during the strategy period ·NCC Building and NCC Infrastructure: Operating margin of at least 3.5 percent per year ·NCC Property Development: Operating margin of at least 10 percent, and average annual return on capital employed of at least 10 percent, during the strategy period The starting point for the new strategy is NCC’s vision to renew our industry and provide superior sustainable solutions. NCC has identified five megatrends that will change the construction and property industry: urbanization, globalization, sustainability, competition for the best talent and new technologies. These trends present opportunities for both profitability and growth. NCC intends to realize this potential by continuing to develop our existing strengths, where broad geographic presence, strong expertise in the expected growth segments of building and infrastructure and a strong position, close to the customer, in the value chain work to NCC’s advantage. The strategic initiatives required to achieve this level of ambition can be summarized in three “Must Win Battles” (MWB). ·Operational excellence: NCC will increase its focus on strengthening existing expertise by strengthening the company’s position close to the customer, improving the efficiency of working methods and processes using LEAN principles, and improving support for digitized information flows. ·Market excellence: NCC sees major growth potential in the infrastructure and refurbishment segments, through sales of sustainable lifecycle offerings and by early marketing of these solutions. ·Investment initiatives: Provided that the new strategy increases NCC’s profitability and growth, there will be investment scope for growth through investments in, for example, company acquisitions, PPP projects and project development. In order to increase opportunities for profitable growth, NCC, as previously announced, will launch a new Nordic organization at the end of the year. The estimated costs of the reorganization are SEK 200 million, of which about SEK 100 million is expected to be charged against NCC’s earnings in the fourth quarter of 2015 and the remaining amount continuously during 2016. The reorganization will generate annual cost savings of about SEK 200 million, but will primarily contribute to increased sales and profitability during the strategy period.

NCC plans to distribute NCC Housing in 2016

In September, the Board assigned the management to analyze conditions for creating an independent housing development company based on the NCC Housing business area, and distributing the new company to shareholders in accordance with the rules of Lex ASEA. The analysis showed that a demerger of NCC would create greater opportunities for capitalizing on the growth potential identified by NCC in both the housing and the construction market. The Board deems that a demerger of NCC will create shareholder value and in early November, decided to begin preparing for a distribution of NCC Housing in accordance with Lex ASEA. “We are in the midst of the process to define what should be included in the new housing development company. Our starting point is the NCC Housing business area, but some resources may be moved from other business areas. When the company has been listed, NCC will become a key supplier to the new housing development company and the new company will be one of NCC’s most important customers,” says Peter Wågström, President and CEO of NCC. The Board plans to present the proposal to distribute and list the new housing development company on January 28, 2016. No cash dividend will be paid for the 2015 fiscal year. The shareholders will make a decision regarding the proposal at the Annual General Meeting on April 12, 2016. Should the AGM decide to adopt the Board’s proposal, the new housing development company will be distributed and listed in 2016. To ensure favorable taxation conditions for the distribution to shareholders in accordance with Lex ASEA, NCC’s principal owner Nordstjernan has agreed to reduce its shareholding, before the distribution, to less than 50 percent of the voting rights in NCC. In the event of a spin-off, the new housing development company will receive shareholders’ equity equivalent to the value of the land portfolio (properties held for future development and capitalized project development costs). If a spin-off had been implemented on September 30, 2015, the new housing development company would have received shareholders’ equity of SEK 5.3 billion and the remaining capital employed of SEK 5.3 billion would have been financed with interest-bearing liabilities, of which SEK 3.1 billion comprises loans to Swedish tenant-owner associations and Finnish housing companies. “The proposed policy for the allocation of NCC’s shareholders’ equity will provide both NCC and the new housing development company with sound financial conditions for capitalizing on the favorable market conditions we see in both the housing market and the construction market,” says Tomas Billing, Chairman of NCC.

Board appointed for NCC Housing

“By appointing an external Board of Directors for Housing, we are taking another step forward in the planned separate listing. Together with the CEO, CFO and other senior executives of Housing, the Board of Housing will play a key role in preparing for a future as an independent and publicly listed housing development company,” says Peter Wågström, President and CEO of NCC. The new Board of Housing will consist of: Carl Engström, Chairman. Born 1977. MSc in Engineering, Royal Institute of Technology, and MSc in Economics, Stockholm School of Economics. Senior Investment Manager at Nordstjernan AB since 2008, where he is also a member of the Management Team. Previously a management consultant at Bain & Co. Deputy Chairman of Salcomp Oyj.

See page 3.  CEO Statement Trends in sales and income for the Group were positive in the quarter. The adjusted operating margin improved from the previous year. I am pleased to see that our efforts in product development and to increase efficiency in production are paying off and contributing to income. Net sales in Sweden showed strong growth driven by continued good market growth and successful product launches. We had a strong performance in chilled products, particularly within the barbeque segment, which is an important category during the summer months. The adjusted operating income and margin for the Swedish operation improved. Net sales in Denmark were slightly down in local currency due to continued price pressure both in the local market and on exports. We expect that the pressure on prices will continue. The adjusted operating income improved, however, with a higher margin thanks to continued efficiency improvements in the supply chain. It was also encouraging to see net sales in Norway increasing gradually during the quarter after the start of deliveries to Coop Norway in August under the new supply agreement. The new agreement also includes the stores acquired from ICA Norway, but the number of stores is today significantly lower than when they were part of the ICA Group. The Norwegian retail market for chilled chicken products showed some growth in the quarter year over year, after three consecutive quarters of decline. But we believe it will take some time before the market is fully recovered. The integration of the newly acquired Finnish operation is proceeding according to plan. This operation reported MSEK -8.9 in operating income for the quarter. The factory is running at approximately 15 percent of total capacity and it will take time to reach profitability. Finland is an attractive market long-term with good opportunities for growth. The main focus is to increase volumes and new farming capacity will therefore be added during next year. We will continue to strengthen cooperation between our operations in the different countries to further increase internal efficiency and to develop new and innovative product concepts.

Bravida Interim Report January – September 2015

July – September 2015 · Net sales increased by 19%, 6% of which was organic growth, to SEK 3,302 million (2,772) · Operating profit was SEK 168 million (160) · The operating margin was 5.1% (5.8) · Adjusted for specific costs, operating profit was SEK 195 million (170) and the operating margin was 5.9% (6.1) · Profit after tax was SEK 109 million (58) · Cash flow from operating activities was SEK -201 million (-157) · Net debt amounted to SEK 2,972 million · Three acquisitions were completed in the quarter, adding annual sales of SEK 242 million · Earnings per share were SEK 0.54 (0.29) January – September 2015 · Net sales increased by 19%, 7% of which was organic growth, to SEK 10,287 million (8,611) · Operating profit was SEK 507 million (456) · The operating margin was 4.9% (5.3) · Adjusted for specific costs, operating profit was SEK 571 million (477) and the operating margin was 5.5% (5.5) · Profit after tax was SEK 231 million (162) · Cash flow from operating activities was SEK 146 million (165) · Ten acquisitions were completed in the period, adding annual sales of SEK 1,249 million · Bravida Finland was formed through the acquisition of the installation division of Peko Group and Halmesvaara OY · Earnings per share were SEK 1.15 (0.80) Bravida is continuing to deliver strong growth and improving earnings. We are also strengthening and improving our market position through both acquisitions and strategic contracts. Net sales rose by 19 percent for both the third quarter and overall for the first nine months of the year. While acquisitions are a key part of our growth, organic growth amounted to 6 percent in the quarter and 7 percent for the first nine months of the year. This means we are growing faster than the market while we are still continuing to prioritise profitability over volume. Adjusted operating profit increased by 15 percent in the quarter to SEK 195 million, resulting in an adjusted operating margin of 5.9 percent. The corresponding figures for the first nine months of the year were a 19 percent increase to SEK 571 million and an adjusted operating margin of 5.5 percent. Existing operations continue to generate better margins as a result of our strategic improvement measures with a strong focus on costs. These involve a number of initiatives to boost profitability based largely on our productivity program. In Q4, we will also start rolling out our new initiatives within purchasing and service. Our newly established Finnish division is performing well. Our first acquisition in Finland in the spring, was followed by a new acquisition, Halmesvaara to strengthen our position in the Helsinki region. The work in developing servicing contracts has paid off quickly through the signing of three significant agreements. Among these is a contract with the dairy group Valio. In Sweden, we made two small acquisitions, these aquisitions fit well with our strategy to both bolster our market positions locally as well as offering end-to-end services in more areas. We are focussing on maximising synergies from each acquisition. Our order intake for the quarter remained strong, with an impressive 26 percent increase, and our order backlog is consequently at a record high. In Norway, our order backlog showed good growth and it is pleasing that we have been awarded the contract to supply all installations in the expansion of Tromsø University Hospital. After the end of the third quarter we achieved a key milestone in Bravida’s history by floating Bravida shares on the Stockholm stock exchange. I am pleased to say that the interest in Bravida among both Swedish and international investors exceeded our expectations. Interest in investing in Bravida was particularly significant in all the Nordic countries in which we operate, reflecting the high profile of our brand in these markets. In addition, it is great that some 1,200 of our employees subscribed for shares at the time of our IPO. This is a testament to the strong commitment to developing the company that is part of Bravida’s corporate culture.

Juntendo University Hospital in Japan looking to increase the diagnostic value of MRI with SyMRI

“We particularly appreciate the power of changing the contrast after the scan, which we anticipate will be useful in finding the most suitable contrast settings for each patient. We will initially use SyMRI in research projects related to MS and brain tumor metastases, with the aim of later taking it into clinical practice at the hospital,” says Professor Aoki at Juntendo University Hospital. Compared to conventional MRI, SyMRI uses a fundamentally different approach as it measures tissue properties and synthesizes images based on absolute measurement of these properties rather than generating a fixed contrast image. Thus it is possible to generate several contrast images from the same 3 to 6 minutes scan, significantly shortening the scan time compared to acquiring each contrast separately. With a free choice of echo time (TE), repetition time (TR) and inversion delay (TI) after the scan, it is possible to recreate any T1-weighted, T2-weighted, FLAIR or Inversion Recovery image. SyMRI Research Edition is optimized for clinical research within neuro imaging and includes exportable SyMaps, quantitative T1, T2 and PD maps. SyMaps can be saved and exported for further analysis in other formats. The agreement with Juntendo University Hospital includes a one year license of SyMRI Research Edition for research use at the hospital. For SyntheticMR, Juntendo University Hospital is an important reference site in Japan. For additional information, please contact Maria Wrethag, CMO and Head of investor relations SyntheticMR AB, +46 76 119 1983, or Stefan Tell, CEO SyntheticMR AB, +46 73 373 40 90. SyntheticMR AB develops and markets innovative software solutions for Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI). SyntheticMR AB has developed SyMRI®, delivering multiple, adjustable contrast images and quantitative data from one 3-6 minutes scan. SyMRI IMAGE provides fast MRI workflows, allowing high patient throughput. SyMRI NEURO enables automatic segmentation of brain tissue, providing objective decision support. SyMRI Research Edition includes exportable SyMaps™, quantitative T1, T2 and PD maps of the brain, allowing the investigation to be taken even further. SyMRI is CE-marked product. SyMRI is a registered trademark in Europe and in the USA. SyntheticMR is listed on the AktieTorget exchange in Stockholm, Sweden. For additional information, please visit .

Swedish Match comments on the strategic review of STG

For the full year 2015, STG expects net sales growth in the high single digits and an adjusted EBITDA margin broadly in line with 2014 (20.3 percent). Capital expenditure is expected to be around 250 MDKK. In the medium term, STG anticipates organic growth rates, excluding currency effects, to be in the range of 1-3 percent for net sales and 3-5 percent for adjusted EBITDA annually, reflecting ongoing cost savings and efficiency initiatives, which are in the process of being implemented. For the full year 2016, STG expects organic net sales growth and adjusted EBITDA growth excluding currency effects to be in line with the medium term expectations. Management of STG has identified several cost saving efficiency initiatives and inventory reduction opportunities as part of the strategic review. Consequently, STG’s management is expecting cost reductions of approximately 140 MDKK compared to full year 2014 when fully implemented in 2018. STG also anticipates working capital improvements amounting to approximately 500 MDKK in the same period versus full year 2014 working capital level. STG continues to make further investments related to new tobacco regulation resulting in expected capital expenditure in 2016 being in line with or slightly above the 2015 level. This level is anticipated to be higher than the expected medium term maintenance capex level of approximately 150 MDKK annually. As of September 30, 2015, STG had net interest bearing debt of 3,323 MDKK equal to 2.3 times adjusted EBITDA for the past twelve months. __________ This release contains forward-looking information based on the current expectation of STG management together with its Board of Directors. Although management deems that the expectations presented by such forward-looking information are reasonable, no guarantee can be given that these expectations will prove correct. Accordingly, the actual future outcome could vary considerably compared to that stated in the forward-looking information, due to such factors as changed market conditions and more general factors such as business cycles, markets and competition, changes in legal requirements or other political measures, and fluctuation in exchange rates. __________

SSAB and Aspo ESL Shipping sign long-term agreement for raw material sea transport to reduce CO2 emissions

The new combined sea freight agreement will result in a reduction of more than 50% in CO2 emissions per tonne of cargo transported compared to present vessels. Besides these environmental benefits, the cost savings provided by new technology will also allow better profitability. “We are extremely pleased to continue our long-established sea transport partnership with SSAB. Together we will make shipping more sustainable and environmentally aware than ever before,” says Aki Ojanen, Chairman of the Board of ESL Shipping and CEO of Aspo Group.   SSAB needs volume flexibility for key input materials to meet fluctuations in the blast furnace consumption of input materials. SSAB’s vision of a stronger, lighter and more sustainable world, encourages the pursuit of solutions to limit environmental impacts, where sea transport is of significant importance. At present, raw materials are transported in vessels powered by low-sulfur bunker fuel. “This new combined agreement is a solid example of SSAB’s sustainability strategy in action. The agreement with ESL Shipping secures deliveries of coking coal, iron ore and PCI coal to SSAB’s coking plants and blast furnaces in Raahe, Luleå and Oxelösund,” says Per Bondemark, Chief Procurement Officer at SSAB. The cost savings related to this agreement is part of SSABs synergy program announced in conjunction with the merger with Ruukki in 2014. The new agreement will result in ESL Shipping building two new, energy-efficient LNG-fueled ships. The two ships will be delivered during 2018.

BYD ‘honoured’ to have helped Schiphol to achieve sustainability goals: Europe’s largest pure electric bus fleet in full operation at airport

BYD, the world’s largest maker of pure electric, emissions free buses is ‘honoured’ to have helped Amsterdam Schiphol Airport to achieve its sustainability goals by providing Europe’s largest fleet of electric buses for its airside operations. This is also the first such fleet at an international airport worldwide. The fleet of 35 BYD ebuses is now in full service transporting passengers between their planes and the terminal buildings. This was marked yesterday by a special ceremony at the airport. Speaking there, Isbrand Ho, Managing Director of BYD Europe, said: “BYD is honoured to have played a key role in helping Schiphol’s airside transportation fleet to become one of the greenest in world. This fleet of 35 BYD ebuses is at present the largest fleet of pure electric full size buses operating in Europe, a fact that underlines Schiphol's commitment to sustainability”. BYD is by far the world's largest producer of pure electric buses - more than 3,000 are in service with the mileage of a single bus already exceeding 287,000km. The company has a vision to enhance air quality by electrifying all aspects of road transport and airports. “With their massive reliance on diesel engined vehicles and ground support equipment, airports represent a great opportunity to clean up the air we breathe”, said Mr Ho. “In fact this fleet means that ground transportation on the air side at Schiphol is completely clean now. The rail transportation to the airport is clean and taxi transportation is on the way to be becoming clean so the next step is to make bus transportation to the airport zero emission as well. We stand ready to work with the operators and government regulatory bodies”. Mr Ho revealed that, since the Schiphol fleet entered service six months ago, the 35 ebuses have accumulated a total mileage of approximately 338,000 km with an average energy consumption of 1.2 kWh/km. They have saved approximately 312,000 kg of CO2 emissions[1] (http://file:///C:/Users/w.bryan/AppData/Local/Microsoft/Windows/Temporary%20Internet%20Files/Content.Outlook/PS5WTWV3/Schiphol%20Ceremony%20(EN).docx#_ftn1). Mr Jos Nijhuis, CEO of Schiphol Group, commented: “European quality standards are high. Schiphol’s are even higher, where possible. We’re only satisfied with the best of the best. Simply because we think our passengers deserve the best of the best. That can occasionally place some challenges on the collaborative process. But the outcome has been good, and I'd like to thank BYD for that”. The ebuses in service at the airport have been specifically tailored by BYD to meet Schiphol’s requirements. They have fewer battery packs than other ebuses thanks to BYD’s improving power density – this means a good range can be maintained on a single charge while providing more space for passengers and their luggage. BYD also worked closely with the Schiphol authorities to select colours and materials which enhance the riding experience for passengers. The design of the driver’s cabin meets The Netherlands’ stand for Ergonomic Requirements. Schiphol’s record breaking fleet will hold its title of the largest electric bus fleet in Europe for only a few months: in mid 2016 a fleet of 51 BYD ebuses will start service with Transport for London but BYD is hoping that Schiphol’s lead will point the way for other international airports keen to enhance their air quality. As Mr Ho said: “Where Schiphol leads today, other airports can follow tomorrow”.

New Bosch company allows users to control smart home using one app

Bosch is strengthening its business in solutions for the smart home. From 1 January 2016 the newly founded subsidiary, Robert Bosch Smart Home GmbH, will bring together the company’s smart home activities, including related software and sensor-system expertise. The new company will offer products and services for connected homes from a single source, allowing it to fulfil tasks such as report break-ins and help control the heating to save energy. Customers will be able to order the first Bosch smart home products online, from January 2016. These include the Bosch smart home controller, a smart thermostat and a contact for doors or windows. The premiere will take place at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas on 6-9 January 2016. Major business potential By 2020 it is expected that 230 million homes worldwide – almost 15 percent of all households – will feature smart home technologies.  “Setting up the Bosch smart home subsidiary is an important strategic step toward pooling and expanding on our range of solutions for the smart home. Smart homes facilitate new services that make their occupants’ lives easier, and they offer major business potential,” says Dr. Stefan Hartung, the member of the board of management of Robert Bosch GmbH responsible for the Energy and Building Technology business sector. “The Bosch smart home system is easy to install and operate: one system, one app, one user experience. Our solutions relieve users of tiresome routine tasks while offering them more convenience and safety,” adds Dr. Peter Schnäbele, the future managing director of the Stuttgart-based Robert Bosch Smart Home GmbH. Data protection and data security given top priority Bosch smart home solutions meet the highest standards of data protection and data security. These standards are taken into account right from the start of the product development process. Bosch has also set up a centre of competence for product security. Customers and users have full transparency and decide for themselves how their data is used. New services and an app make life easier Bosch smart home system solutions mean that a single platform can connect the heating, lighting, smoke alarms, and appliances in a home. All these can then be operated simply by using a smartphone or tablet. The core of the system is the Bosch smart home controller, a central control unit that connects the components with each other and to the internet. In the future, users will be able to use the Bosch smart home app to combine the basic functions of unrelated devices. For example, the door and window contact solution reports whether a window is open. When this happens, the system can automatically turn down the heating in the relevant room, in line with the user’s preference settings. Users can also check their smartphone anytime, anywhere to see whether doors and windows are open or closed. In future versions of the door and window contact solution, the system will sound the alarm if a window or door is broken open when the occupant is absent – meaning there will no longer be any need for a separate alarm system. Compatible with other manufacturers’ devices When it comes to connectivity, Bosch believes open standards and open platforms will make the technology as user-friendly as possible. For this reason, the Bosch smart home system is modular and expandable, and is easy to connect compatible devices made by other manufacturers to it. New online shop The first Bosch smart home products can be ordered from 1 January 2016 at Simply.Connected.

Inwido’s Capital Markets Day: A stable business, well positioned for continued profitable growth

“Maintaining and further strengthening our position in the Nordics as well as having a systematic approach to M&A is at the core of our strategy. Our ambition is to create value through selected acquisitions in Europe and by extracting synergies. Being the industry leader in innovation is central to maintaining our strong market positions. Furthermore, initiatives to improve cost efficiency and flexibility will continue to have a positive impact on margins and bring us closer to achieving our financial targets”, says Inwido’s CEO, Håkan Jeppsson. The fragmented European windows and doors market is characterized by a high degree of made to measure, local preferences, demanding logistics and seasonality. To maintain and further strengthen Inwido’s leading position in its key markets, as well as achieve sustainable high margins, the company coordinates centrally and acts locally. This is showcased through a number of strategic choices, such as to focus on the local supply chain, pragmatic sharing of group resources, a decentralized decision process and emphasis on local leadership. In Sweden, Inwido’s largest market, the shift towards the more profitable consumer segment continues, whilst maintaining the company’s strong market position. The overall market fundamentals in Sweden are currently positive. The Danish underlying market has enjoyed a strong recovery since 2014 and Inwido’s key focus is to win additional market share with high margins and to improve cost efficiency. In Finland, Inwido is the market leader in a consolidated but weak underlying market. The key to maintaining high profitability in Finland is to leverage on the company’s strong position, widen the product offering and differentiate through innovation, installation and service. The Norwegian economy has been hit hard by dropping oil prices and consumer confidence has declined. The market is highly competitive and Inwido has implemented a number of measures to improve operational flexibility and to reduce the cost base. Going forward, increasing top line will be the key priority.  E-Commerce is a new direct sales channel for Inwido and was initiated through the acquisition of JNA and SPAR in Denmark 2014. E-Commerce is a relatively immature channel in the European windows and doors markets in which Inwido is currently enjoying a first mover advantage. The company has identified 8-10 attractive European markets and is aiming to roll out its E-Commerce business in these markets in the coming years, starting with Germany. As market volumes have declined across markets in the last few years, Inwido has implemented a number of structural measures to improve efficiency and lower cost levels and thereby creating a more flexible organization with a stable margin development. Similarly, the company has focused on improving its positions by building strong brands and enhancing its product offerings across segments. In conclusion, Inwido is now a stable business, well positioned for continued profitable growth. Finally, Inwido reiterates its financial targets: · Above market growth through organic growth in existing markets and through selective acquisitions and initiatives in Europe · Operating EBITA-margin of 12% · The net interest bearing debt should not, other than temporarily, exceed 2.5x EBITDA · To pay its shareholders an annual dividend that corresponds to approximately 50 per cent of net income with the company’s financial position, cash flow and future outlook being taken into consideration  Read the full press release in the attached PDF.

Rare 1955 Porsche 550 Spyder to star at RM Sotheby's Paris sale during Retromobile week

LONDON (25 November, 2015) – RM Sotheby’s, the world’s largest collector car auction house for investment-quality automobiles, is delighted to announce two significant new entries for its Paris sale, returning 3 February, 2016 during the world-famous Retromobile show week. The new star of the sale is a wonderful and rare 1955 Porsche 550 Spyder, chassis no. 550-0068, which is significant for having been the 1955 Frankfurt Motor Show car. The 550 Spyder is one of the most iconic of all Porsche sports racing cars, and was based on the legendary 356. Designed specifically with competition in mind, the 550 Spyder was originally revealed at the 1953 Paris Auto Show, wowing the public with its low-slung, aerodynamic body and potent mechanicals. The model enjoyed an illustrious competition career on the international racing scene, and the car on offer by RM Sotheby’s boasts racing history in North America during the 1950s (Estimate: €2.800.000 - €3.500.000). The 550 Spyder will be joined at RM Sotheby’s Paris sale by another iconic German car from 1955.

Kickstarter Project Aims to Create the Next Leap in Communication with Heartbeat Device

The holiday season can be particularly difficult for couples in long distance relationships or people separated from family members. Now, thanks to a clever wearable device and smartphone app designed by Little Riot launched on Kickstarter, lonely hearts can drift off to the sound of their loved one’s heartbeat. Pillow Talk is an innovative product that transmits the sound of one person’s heartbeat to another’s pillow, using two beautifully-designed wristbands, speakers and a smartphone app. The idea is a labour of love for 28-year-old designer and entrepreneur Joanna Montgomery, and has received interest from long-distance lovers around the world. Having launched on Kickstarter two weeks ago, the project is now over 50% funded and Little Riot are conducting one last promotional push to reach the £75,000 target. Improvements in technology mean that separated families can now communicate more easily, and even see the faces of their loved ones on video calls. Pillow Talk aims to take the next big leap for communication, creating a connection that families can feel, not just see or hear. “Pillow Talk is about feeling that physical connection with someone”, says Jo. “Anyone who has spent time apart from someone they love knows that - while it’s great to talk to them on something like Skype - you don’t get that same closeness from a face on a screen. We designed Pillow Talk to give people that feeling that they’re somehow closer together, even when they’re many miles apart.” Little Riot has designed Pillow Talk to be used by lovers and families, regardless of how far apart they are. The wristband picks up the user’s heartbeat and uses a smartphone app to transmit it to a receiver in their loved one’s pillow. The device then transmits the sound and pace of the heartbeat, a soothing rhythm that provides loved ones with a far more intimate connection than just email or calls. Joanna first came up with the idea for Pillow Talk while studying at university. Her first video showcasing the concept struck a chord with separated families around the world, and she quickly built up a waiting list of over 50,000 people, many of which have family members serving in the military. She has since been fine-tuning the technology with the help of the Wayra UK startup accelerator, which is funded by Telefonica. Pillow Talk has many benefits for both parties – it can soothe and create conditions for better sleep as a beating heart is a relaxing sound. The ongoing connection also provides a sense of security, as however far apart one person may be from the other, both users know the other person is in bed, safe and well and possibly dreaming of one another. Backers can reserve their Pillow Talk set or secure other rewards by pledging to the Kickstarter campaign at

MOOG® Re-engineers OE Design of VW Suspension Wishbone to Reduce Premature Wear of Parts

26th November, Bradford, UK… Federal-Mogul Motorparts, a division of Federal-Mogul Holdings Corporation (NASDAQ: FDML), has released its latest MOOG® Easy Solutions Bulletin (ESB), detailing a common issue found with Volkswagen wishbones for vehicle applications including the Lupo and Polo models. The steering and suspension specialist has redesigned the component to solve the issue and improve durability.“We are constantly developing our products to improve the MOOG range, enabling us to offer longer lasting, more cost effective components for our customers,” said Jonathan Allen, Marketing Manager, Federal-Mogul Motorparts. “Our ESBs provide workshops with an added level of technical support and instant access to additional product information. It enables our customers to be more competitive in the market place.”MOOG identified that the bushes were wearing prematurely due to excessive movement within the wishbone’s bush housing. To solve the problem, the vertical bush has a new design that features an enhanced rubber compound, significantly improving the lifetime of the parts. Additionally, larger welds are used to strengthen the joint of the bushes to the arm.The models affected by these issues include: Volkswagen Lupo (6X1-6E1) 05/97>06/04. Volkswagen Polo (6N1-6NF) 09/94>12/99, and Polo (6N2) 10/99>10/01.MOOG provides its customers with support and information on common issues found in the aftermarket through its ESBs. The free document highlights inherent design issues with the original part, such as component fatigue or fitting issues, and the problems they can cause both the technician and vehicle owner.

HERE Traffic Safety Warning feature could help reduce accidents on UK roads

26.11.2015 London – Each year, there are more than 25,000 accidents in the UK resulting from drivers failing to judge other people’s path or speed, accounting for 22% of all accidents.*  A new solution from HERE, the Berlin-based mapping and location technology company, could help reduce this number. Through its HERE Real Time Traffic service, HERE is offering a new feature called Traffic Safety Warning that can alert drivers if the vehicles in front of them are slowing to a stop so that they can reduce their speed and avoid an accident – before they can even see a traffic jam forming. The feature is most effective in congestion known as a ‘wide moving jam’, often occurring on motorways. In this situation, a vehicle travelling at a normal speed can suddenly come across a tailback of cars at a standstill. Based on real-time traffic probe data, the feature can inform the driver of imminent congestion using a warning that can manifest itself as a dashboard warning light or an audible alert in the cockpit. Johannes Glossner, Traffic Go-To-Market Manager at HERE, said: “The tail end of a traffic jam usually comes out of nowhere and is difficult to foresee. This phenomenon can take place suddenly, without the driver expecting it, which is why we think it is important to forewarn the passenger with an alert so they have time to brake safely.” Based on Europe-wide ITS (intelligent telematics systems) the EU commission has issued directives to all member states to make certain traffic-related information (such as animals, people, obstacles and debris on the road) available in vehicles. While a tail-end warning is not yet mandatory, HERE can already provide this useful addition to a vehicle’s safety system. The Traffic Safety Warning feature is part of HERE Real Time Traffic, the most comprehensive, global traffic service commercially available on the market today. It provides up-to-the-minute information about current traffic conditions and incidents that could cause delays, including slower than normal traffic flow, road works and accidents. It then helps drivers make the best decision about the rest of the journey by improving the accuracy of arrival times. HERE Real Time Traffic is currently globally available for more than 50 countries. *Numbers according to the road accident and safety statistical report of the Department for Transport:  In 2014, 209 people were even killed in the UK as a result of drivers failing to judge other people’s path or speed, accounting for 14% of all fatal road accidents Torque Agency Group Matt             020 7952 1079 Rachel Burgessrburgess@torqueagencygroup.com020 7952 1076                                Alex Michaelidesamichaelides@torqueagencygroup.com020 7952 1078 About HERE HERE, a Nokia company, is a leader in navigation, mapping and location experiences.

Gypsy Lore Society must rethink rejecting motion of regret over historic racism

Scientific racism, the notion that there are biological differences between races that make some races superior to others, has long been dismissed by the academic community. Despite this it continued to be prevalent and endorsed within the Gypsy Lore Society (the oldest scholarly organization for Romani Studies) up to as late as the 1970s. The board of the Society has recently rejected a motion of regret over this historical racism claiming that apologies are a pointless attempt to change the past. This decision has now been strongly challenged. In a new article published in Ethnic and Racial Studies, Thomas A. Acton carefully details the persistence of scientific racism within the Gypsy Lore Society, which supported the categorisation of travellers and gave superiority to ‘pure-blood’ Romas, and the organisation’s slow move away from racism. He argues that as systematic racism is again raising its head, with Roma, Gypsies and Travellers beginning to be targeted, it is important to acknowledge past errors so that they cannot be used as support for current actions. Scientific racism, the dominant norm of international science for a century or so, was the basis of eugenics and has been used as the justification of genocide, most notably the Holocaust. In his article, ‘Scientific racism, popular racism and the discourse of the Gypsy Lore Society’, Acton suggests that elements of scientific racism can still be seen to shape our discourses today. Acton argues that the refusal of Gypsy Lore Society members to acknowledge past GLS complicity with racist ideas and practices can contribute to an erosion of vigilance against ethnic cleansing and violence today. However an apology will help future scholars, politicians and policy-makers to be more cautious about assumptions lifted from past GLS racism. Thomas A. Acton OBE is Emeritus Professor at the University of Greenwich. He became the UK’s first professor of Romani Studies when appointed in 1997.

Adnams and O-I create UK’s lightest branded beer bottle

Adnams of Southwold has partnered with glassmaker O-I to develop the UK’s lightest branded 500ml glass premium ale bottle. At 280g, the innovation shaves a further 19g off the brand’s already market-leading lightweight bottle creating an additional annual carbon saving of 100 tonnes and removing 115 tonnes of glass from the waste stream. Adnams pioneered the use of lightweight branded glass in the premium packaged ale sector when it worked with O-I to launch a 299g bottle in 2007. This style of long-neck, lightweight pack has since helped regenerate the entire sector, which had grown to £490 million by the end of 2014[1] (http://file:///C:/Users/Philip/Dropbox/O-I%20UK/Approved%20copy%202015/Adnams%20280g%20release%20FINAL.docx#_ftn1). Adnams hopes its latest move will inspire other brewers to seek further carbon savings. O-I’s designers and manufacturing personnel at Harlow were able to shave weight off while retaining the distinctive shape and height of Adnams bespoke bottles. This meant that there was no impact on the filling equipment or tertiary packaging. The brewer is steadily moving production of all its bottled beers into the new container. Benedict Orchard, environmental sustainability manager at Adnams, commented, “Constant environmental improvement is part of the DNA at Adnams. We wanted to see how far we could push our bottle as it is a key component of our overall carbon footprint. We had done it before and knew O-I. They are very forward thinking and share our ethos, so it was logical to work together.” Paul McLavin, marketing and business development manager for O-I in the UK, said, “We are aware that other glassmakers offer standard bottles at 280g but are excited to be able to offer customers an embossed bottle, with all the branding benefits that brings, which advances sustainability. O-I is constantly working with customers and in its own Innovation Centre to push forward the boundaries of glass production; with its infinite recyclability, glass is the most sustainable packaging brands can choose.” ---------------------------------------------------------------------- [1] (http://file:///C:/Users/Philip/Dropbox/O-I%20UK/Approved%20copy%202015/Adnams%20280g%20release%20FINAL.docx#_ftnref1) Source: Marstons Premium Bottled Ale Market Report 2015

Memorial show brings in money for St Leonard's Hospice

Two shows held at the Joseph Rowntree Theatre in memory of long-time volunteer and supporter, Joan Sadler, have helped raise over £3300 for the charity. A close friend of Joan’s, Mike Grimes, today joined the theatre’s booking director, Susie Young, in handing over a cheque for £2641.98 to Annie Keogh, fundraiser for St Leonard’s Hospice, which joins £613 in donations collected on the evenings of the two concerts held earlier this year.  The proceeds from the ticket sales were shared equally between the hospice and Joseph Rowntree Theatre. “Joan would have been absolutely delighted to know that so much money had been raised in her name – it is a perfect tribute to a wonderful lady who spent so much of her life fundraising for these two great causes,” comments Mike.  “Joan always said that she wanted a memorial concert filled with her favourite performers, but she had so many that we had to have two separate nights to accommodate them all!” Organised by musical director, Don Pears, the concerts featured performances from many of Joan’s favourite shows and musicals by groups including York Opera, New Earswick Musical Society, York Philharmonic Choir, York Light Opera, York Musical Theatre and Rowntree Players, to name just a few.  The Brass Band concert featured the Shepherd Group Concert Band and the York Railway Institute Band. “Joan spent countless shows here at the theatre either duty managing, supporting the theatre and the groups who perform here, or sitting in her favourite seat in the audience,” says the theatre’s chair of trustees, Dan Shrimpton.  “We’ve been entrusted with her British Empire Medal, which is on display in the foyer as a tribute to Joan.” Annie Keogh, corporate fundraiser for St Leonard’s Hospice was delighted to accept the cheque: “This donation is a very fitting tribute to Joan’s energy and enthusiasm for life; Hospice care is about helping our patients have as full a life as they can, right through to their last days.  Thank you to everyone involved in raising such a great sum for our work.” ENDS  For further media information or photographs, please contact: Jay Commins PR Director, Joseph Rowntree Theatre Tel:         01904 500698 Email:

IGT Holding has acquired the shares at a price of SEK 362.50 per share, regardless of share class. The price paid is approximately 20 per cent (and 21 per cent) higher, compared to IFS’s six months volume-weighted average share price on Nasdaq Stockholm for IFS’s B-shares (and A-shares).[4] (http://file///C:/Users/ANDBSE/Documents/Press%20release/EQT/Ireland%20-%20press%20release%20English%20(FINAL%202).docx#_ftn4) Through the acquisitions, IGT Holding has passed the mandatory bid threshold of 30 per cent of the votes in IFS, which IGT Holding according to Chapter 3, Section 1 of the Swedish Public Takeover Act (2006:451) must disclose. This press release constitutes such a disclosure. IGT Holding is now under an obligation to launch a mandatory bid for the remaining shares in IFS within four weeks from the acquisitions, i.e. no later than 25 December 2015. IGT Holding will within this period, following a formal board resolution, launch a mandatory bid for the remaining shares in IFS for a consideration of SEK 362.50 per share through a separate press release. Per Franzén, Partner at EQT Partners AB comments: “IFS is a strong independent player in the global ERP market. It has developed unique positions in industry verticals such as Oil & Gas, Aerospace & Defence and Field Service Management. In order to achieve the company’s strategic objectives, we believe significant, immediate and long-term investments are necessary. EQT[5] (http://file///C:/Users/ANDBSE/Documents/Press%20release/EQT/Ireland%20-%20press%20release%20English%20(FINAL%202).docx#_ftn5) will continue to support IFS in developing and strengthening these positions by providing the necessary financial resources, investing in IFS’s customer offering and its global organization. We place great value on IFS’s management team and employees and are convinced that EQT with its unique global network, its software expertise and governance framework is very well positioned to support IFS in further accelerating its growth,” says Per Franzén, Partner at EQT Partners AB which acts as investment advisor to EQT funds. CEO at IFS comments: “IFS has executed well in recent years and has established a strong position in our target sectors with a very competitive world class product, a strong customer base and a loyal and effective team of employees. The expertise of EQT together with its investment resources will enable us to scale rapidly and realise our true potential. Both I and the senior management team of IFS are very excited about embarking on this new growth chapter and firmly believe it will deliver huge benefit for our customers, staff and partners,” says Alastair Sorbie, CEO at IFS. IFS’s Main Shareholders comment: “IFS has created substantial shareholder value over the last years. Our opinion is that EQT VII's price fairly values the company's potential. As a result, we have decided to sell our shares. We are convinced that EQT VII will be a responsible owner and support the company and its employees going forward.” Background to the acquisitions and EQT’s interest in IFS IFS is active in the development, sale and implementation of enterprise software for enterprise resource planning (ERP). The Company was founded in 1983 and currently has over 2,700 employees, supporting more than 2,400 customers worldwide from its network of local offices and through a growing ecosystem of partners. IFS has approximately 1 million users in businesses all over the world, who rely on IFS’s software for mission critical business processes. IFS is listed on Nasdaq Stockholm, Mid Cap. EQT is a growth focused investor and owner with vast experience from developing companies in various industries across the globe. During ownership, EQT’s portfolio companies have on average increased number of employees by 11 per cent, sales by 8 per cent and EBITDA by 11 per cent each year. EQT is impressed by the development and direction of the company. IFS has established an attractive position in specific areas of the manufacturing and engineering ERP market including the Enterprise Asset Management segment. In addition, IFS is focused on certain selected customer verticals where the Company is able to exert market leadership with its domain knowledge on a global scale, such as Oil & Gas, Aerospace & Defence and Field Service Management. EQT supports IFS’s strategy of: · continuing to invest into the further development of the industry-specific product suite to maintain and enhance the strong customer satisfaction that IFS enjoys in the market; and · leveraging its deep domain knowledge to deliver differentiated solutions to customers in certain industry sectors which other competitors cannot deliver; and · leveraging its heritage and the current strong position in the Enterprise Asset Management segment and accelerating the development of “Internet of Things” applications; and · focusing on M&A to complement its product offering and capabilities and accelerate the execution upon the objectives listed above. EQT supports IFS’s strategic objectives and believes IFS is well positioned to successfully execute. However, EQT also believes IFS would benefit from further investments into its sales and marketing, partner network and product development in order to fully achieve its strategic objectives. These investments are typically strategic and long term oriented and even though it may lead to benefits in the longer term it will have an adverse impact on short to mid-term financial performance. EQT believes it can assist IFS in a private setting, among other things, through: · long-term investments into the customer offering and the organization to further strengthen the market position in selected customer verticals; and · supporting IFS in developing its global partner ecosystem so that it can continue to improve its ability to offer cost effective global solutions; and · providing financial and strategic resources to IFS to accelerate its M&A strategy. EQT is convinced that, with the financial resources available to it as well as its long-term perspective as an investor, is very well positioned to support IFS upon the execution of this strategy. By leveraging its unique global network, EQT is able to support IFS to increase its global brand awareness and get access to new customers.
