Orkla wants to be one of the foremost players in alternative proteins in Europe

“We are just at the beginning of a massive shift towards alternative protein sources. For Orkla, alternative proteins is an important priority area that offers major growth opportunities.  Our goal is to reach out to everyone with plant-based food, and to ensure that people can choose these products without having to compromise on taste or consistency.  We intend to make it easier to choose healthy, sustainable alternatives to meat and dairy products as part of our daily diet,” says Orkla President and CEO Jaan Ivar Semlitsch. The United Nations estimates that approximately 15% of global CO2 emissions can be linked to animal husbandry for food production, and given the current population growth rate, meat production will have to double by 2050.  It is impossible to meet these demands without finding significantly more sustainable methods of producing proteins. Orkla targets strong growth in plant-based food in the coming years. The plant-based brands, NATURLI’, Anamma, Felix Veggie, Beauvais Veggie, and Lecora Green Line had a total turnover of NOK 869 million in 2020 and grew by 21 per cent compared with 2019.  Consumption of alternative proteins is still low, and Orkla targets substantial growth in this area.  By 2025, the Group aims to attain a turnover of NOK 3 billion in plant-based food.  This target is to be achieved through a combination of organic growth and acquisitions. “The work that has been done by our many business units is impressive. The positions gained by NATURLI’ and Anamma have inspired us to focus on this new area,” says Jaan Ivar Semlitsch. “More and more consumers want to have healthier, more sustainable alternatives to traditional meat and dairy products.  Technological advances will enable us to develop new products that are at least as good in terms of taste, consistency, and nutritional content.  The potential in our present home markets and in new areas is considerable,” says Elin Tveito Lidman, who was appointed CEO of Orkla Alternative Proteins (OAP) today. Elin Tveito Lidman has 14 years of experience from different Orkla companies.  She previously held the position of Vice President Strategy at Orkla, before which she was the Marketing Director at Orkla Home & Personal Care. Under her leadership, OAP will work closely with the various companies in Orkla Food Ingredients and Orkla Foods that currently develop, market, and sell plant-based food. OAP and these companies will jointly develop a general strategy for alternative proteins at Orkla, with a view to strengthening the Group’s long-term competitiveness.  There will still be focus on building and developing strong local positions, and OAP will also contribute to accelerating the pace of growth outside Orkla’s present home markets. “I am looking forward to getting started on recruiting key personnel for the OAP organisation, and to working closely with everyone already engaged in building up Orkla’s plant-based business,” says Tveito Lidman, who will report to Johan Clarin, EVP and CEO of Orkla Food Ingredients. She will also have a reporting line to Atle Vidar Nagel-Johansen, EVP and CEO of Orkla Foods.  The present business units will continue to have profit responsibility for plant-based products. “We will continue to build and develop our positions in our home markets.  NATURLI’ is already market leader for plant-based food in Denmark and is sold in a wide range of countries.  In Sweden, Anamma has been a success story since the very outset almost 20 years ago, and Frankful is a new sustainability-driven brand that focuses on plant-based, climate-smart foods.  By establishing OAP, we want to strengthen our focus on technology and long-term development work, in addition to exploring opportunities outside our current home markets,” explains Atle Vidar Nagel-Johansen. “We aim to contribute to improving our existing product portfolio, while also ensuring that we have the necessary expertise to develop the next generation’s alternative proteins. We will also consider increasing our presence in other parts of the value chain. The competition is tough in this area, with multinational companies, major grocery chains and local players that are committing heavily and investing substantial amounts.  In addition to leveraging our in-depth local insight into taste and consumer preferences, we will set ourselves apart from our competitors by investing in technology and cultivating partnerships, also with smaller companies.  Orkla will make larger-scale acquisitions if and when the right opportunities arise,” states Johan Clarin.Orkla is a leading supplier of branded consumer goods and concept solutions to the consumer, out-of-home and bakery markets in the Nordics, Baltics and selected markets in Central Europe and India. Orkla is listed on the Oslo Stock Exchange and its headquarters is in Oslo. In 2020, the Group had a turnover of NOK 47.1 billion, and over 21,000 employees at year end.

AZN: First quarter 2021 results

AstraZeneca PLC 30 April 2021 07:00 BST First quarter 2021 results Robust performance supports continued investment for long-term sustainable growth AstraZeneca delivered robust revenue growth of 15% (11% at CER[1]) in the quarter to $7,320m; excluding the contribution from the pandemic COVID-19 vaccine, revenue growth increased by 11% (7% at CER) to $7,045m. The overall results in the quarter further increased the Company's profitability and cash generation, while the pipeline demonstrated encouraging progress; the Company reiterates full-year 2021 guidance. Pascal Soriot, Chief Executive Officer, commented: "We delivered solid progress in the first quarter of 2021 and continued to advance our portfolio of life-changing medicines. Oncology grew 16% and New CVRM grew 15%. New medicines contributed over half of revenue and all regions delivered encouraging growth. This performance ensured another quarter of strong revenue and earnings progression, continued profitability, and cash-flow generation, despite the pandemic's ongoing negative impact on the diagnosis and treatment of many conditions. Given the performance in the first quarter, in line with our expectations, we reiterate our full-year guidance. We expect the impact of COVID to reduce and anticipate a performance acceleration in the second half of 2021. Further significant pipeline advances were achieved as we continued to invest for long-term sustainable growth, including the OlympiA Phase III trial demonstrating Lynparza's benefit for certain forms of early breast cancer. This sustained pipeline progress and accelerating business performance underlines our commitment to patients and delivering our growth potential, which will be further complemented by the proposed acquisition of Alexion."

New medicines[7] Total Revenue improved by 30% (26% at CER) in the quarter to $3,891m, including growth in Emerging Markets of 33% (30% at CER) to $874m. Globally, new medicines represented 53% of Total Revenue (Q1 2020: 47%). Q1 2020 benefitted from a low-to-mid single-digit percentage increase in sales following short-term inventory increases in the distribution channel, an indirect effect of the COVID-19 pandemic - Oncology growth of 20% (16% at CER) to $3,024m, an increase in New CVRM[8] of 19% (15% at CER) to $1,306m. Respiratory & Immunology (R&I), however, declined by 1% (4% at CER) to $1,546m, predominately reflecting the impact of stocking of an authorised generic version of Symbicort in the US during Q1 2020 and phasing of COVID-19 impacts - An increase in Emerging Markets of 14% (10% at CER) to $2,592m, with China growth of 19% (10% at CER) to $1,679m. In the US, Total Revenue increased by 10% to $2,310m and in Europe by 28% (18% at CER) to $1,546m Guidance The Company reiterates guidance for FY 2021 at CER. Total Revenue is expected to increase by a low-teens percentage,accompanied by faster growth in Core EPS to $4.75 to $5.00. The guidance does not incorporate any revenue or profit impact from sales of the pandemic COVID-19 vaccine. Similarly, the guidance excludes the proposed acquisition of Alexion Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Alexion) which is intended to become AstraZeneca's rare disease unit and area of expertise. The acquisition is anticipated to close in Q3 2021. AstraZeneca recognises the heightened risks and uncertainties from the impact of COVID-19. Variations in performance between quarters can be expected to continue. The Company is unable to provide guidance and indications on a Reported basis because AstraZeneca cannot reliably forecast material elements of the Reported result, including any fair value adjustments arising on acquisition-related liabilities, intangible asset impairment charges and legal-settlement provisions. Please refer to the cautionary statements section regarding forward-looking statements at the end of this announcement. Indications The Company provides indications for FY 2021 at CER: - AstraZeneca continues its focus on improving operating leverage, while addressing its most important capital-allocation priority of re-investment in the business, namely continued investment in R&D and the support of medicines and patient access in key markets - A Core Tax Rate of 18-22%. Variations in the Core Tax Rate between quarters are anticipated to continue Currency impact If foreign-exchange rates for April to December 2021 were to remain at the average of rates seen in the quarter, it is anticipated that there would be a low single-digit favourable impact on Total Revenue and Core EPS. The Company's foreign-exchange rate sensitivity analysis is contained within the operating and financial review . Financial summary - Total Revenue, comprising Product Sales and Collaboration Revenue, increased by 15% in the quarter (11% at CER) to $7,320m. Product Sales grew by 15% (11% at CER) to $7,257m, driven primarily by the performances of new medicines across Oncology and BioPharmaceuticals, including Tagrisso and Farxiga. Total Revenue included $275m of pandemic COVID-19 vaccine sales - The Reported Gross Profit Margin[9] declined by three percentage points to 74.3%, and the Core Gross Profit[9] Margin declined by three percentage points in the quarter to 74.6%. The performance predominantly reflected the significant impact of equitable supply, at no profit to AstraZeneca, of the pandemic COVID-19 vaccine, together with an increasing contribution from profit-sharing arrangements, primarily Lynparza, and the impact of the Chinese National Reimbursement Drug List (NRDL) and the volume-based procurement (VBP) patient-access programmes. A higher proportion of Oncology sales and increasing patient access in China partially offsets these impacts. These variations in gross margin performance between quarters can be expected to continue - Reported Total Operating Expense increased by 13% (9% at CER) in the quarter to $4,741m and represented 65% of Total Revenue (Q1 2020: 66%). Core Total Operating Expense increased by 15% (11% at CER) to $4,136m and comprised 57% of Total Revenue (Q1 2020: 57%) - Reported and Core R&D Expense increased by 24% (19% at CER) in the quarter to $1,713m and by 23% (18% at CER) to $1,638m, respectively. The increases primarily reflected the investment in Phase III and the advancement to Phase II of several clinical development programmes, particularly in BioPharmaceuticals. The Company continued to invest in its COVID-19 vaccine and potential medicines to prevent and treat COVID-19 - Reported SG&A Expense increased by 8% (4% at CER) in the quarter to $2,929m; Core SG&A Expense increased by 10% (7% at CER) to $2,399m, representing 33% of Total Revenue (Q1 2020: 34%) - Reported Other Operating Income and Expense[10] grew by 146% (145% at CER) in the quarter to $1,180m. Core Other Operating Income and Expense increased by 147% (146% at CER) to $1,180m during the period. The growth predominately reflected the $776m of income from divestment of AstraZeneca's 26.7% share of Viela Bio, Inc. (Viela) as part of the acquisition by Horizon Therapeutics plc - The Reported Operating Profit Margin increased by seven percentage points in the quarter (eight at CER) to 26%; the Core Operating Profit Margin increased by five percentage points (six at CER) to 34%. The performance predominately reflected the aforementioned one-time benefit from Other Operating Income and Expense[10] - Reported EPS of $1.19 in the quarter represented an increase of 100% (97% at CER). Core EPS grew by 55% (53% at CER) to $1.63. EPS benefitted from a lower tax rate as a result of a non-taxable gain from the divestment of AstraZeneca's share of Viela   Click on, or paste the following link into your web browser, to view the full announcement: http://www.rns-pdf.londonstockexchange.com/rns/1437X_1-2021-4-29.pdf   This information is provided by RNS, the news service of the London Stock Exchange.

Delivery volumes rose slightly compared with the preceding quarter. Global inventory levels were normal. Demand for kraftliner was highly favorable during the quarter, driven by higher box demand.

Settlement will take place on 4 May 2021. Marcus Wigren, CEO of Nilar, comments: Today’s capital raise and listing are a resounding vote of confidence for Nilar in our quest to further expand our footprint within the fast-growing battery energy storage market. We are hugely pleased to have gained the support from so many strong institutional investors; and the interest from the general public has been overwhelming. Michael Obermayer, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Nilar, comments: Battery innovation and development is a long-distance race. That Nilar has come this far, after a decade of technology development and a second decade of product refinement and market development, carving out a unique position in the battery energy storage system world, is due to the unfailing tenacity of Nilar’s specialists and the steady conviction and support of Nilar’s investors. I would like to extend the Board’s heartfelt thanks to all hardworking Nilar management and staff, and all our loyal shareholders. Nilar is at the gate of its third decade, entering now a hugely exciting expansion phase. About Nilar Nilar is a Swedish-based developer and manufacturer of stationary energy storage systems, so-called Electrical Energy Storage (ESS) systems. Energy storage systems can be used to bridge imbalances between energy production and demand in order to, for example, improve the utilisation of intermittent electricity production from renewable energy sources, such as solar energy and wind power, as well as to strengthen the increasingly strained power grids. Nilar's battery technology is based on nickel-metal-hydride (NiMH) electrochemistry with a water-based electrolyte, which results in a strong environmental and safety profile together with a competitive price over a life cycle. The Company is headquartered in Täby and the energy-efficient production facility is, since 2012, located in Gävle, where the Company's research and development also takes place. The Company is currently expanding its capacity in Gävle by installing new production lines and improving the efficiency of the lines already in place. Despite a strong expansion of production capacity, the Company's sales growth has been limited by the facility's production capacity. With funds from the Offering, the Company intends to finance additional production lines in Gävle and to gradually expand through a new factory, planned to be located in Estonia. Stabilisation measures In connection with the Offering, Carnegie (the "Stabilization Manager") may, acting on behalf of the Joint Bookrunners, over-allot shares to conduct transactions aimed to stabilize, maintain or in other ways support the market price of the Company's shares at a higher level than the one that might otherwise have prevailed in the open market.

The Stabilization Manager is, however, not required to conduct such transactions and there is no assurance that such measures will be undertaken. Under no circumstances will transactions be carried out at a higher price than that the price in the Offering. The stabilization manager may utilize the Over-Allotment Option to over-allot shares in order to enable stabilization measures. The stabilization measures, if conducted, may be discontinued at any time without prior notice but must be discontinued no later than within the aforementioned 30-day period. The Stabilization Manager must, no later than by the end of the seventh daily market session after the stabilization measures have been undertaken, in accordance with article 5(4) of the Market Abuse Regulation (EU) 596/2014 and the Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) 2016/1052, disclose that stabilization measures have been undertaken.

The performance in the housing segments in particular was excellent, and the Business premises’ result continued to stabilise. Infrastructure posted a loss being negatively impacted by a seasonally slower market, as well as margin reductions in certain projects. The issuances of two green bonds and a green hybrid bond were certainly a highlight of the quarter. The launch of the Green Finance Framework supports our efforts in reaching our climate and sustainability targets. As a result of the issue of the hybrid bond and a solid first-quarter operating cash flow after investments of EUR 70 million (-48), our net debt decreased to EUR 439 million (942) and our gearing to 44% (105). This is first time that YIT achieved its gearing target of below 50%. Since the merger with Lemminkäinen, YIT has done good work in harmonising its processes, driving cultural integration, and strengthening its financial position. However, deviations in project performance and earnings volatility show that these improvements have not been enough. We need to become much more resilient in our operational performance to unlock the full potential of the business and to secure stable profitability development. After reviewing our operations, I am confident about what we need to do to improve the performance and competitiveness of YIT. We will immediately take swift and precise measures to address three areas: project management, our operating model, and infrastructure business. Problems in project management have led to significant losses in various projects over the past couple of years. To stabilise performance, the company has already taken decisive actions to develop and implement new project management and leadership practices. The results have been promising particularly in the Business premises segment. Our clear goal now is to make sure those practices are implemented throughout the organisation. In parallel, we will take a close look on how we operate. In that work, we will make sure that our resources are allocated in an optimal way and that our organisation becomes more efficient. Finally, we will do a thorough review of the Infrastructure segment’s strategy. The performance of the segment has been unsatisfactory, and it is clear that changes are needed. I believe that the core of YIT’s strategy, sustainable urban development with a strong emphasis on self-developed and competence-based projects, remains key for future success. However, I see a clear need to sharpen our strategy and to make our key objectives more tangible. We will also have renewed vigour in sustainability. Our clear target is to achieve top level sustainability performance in the industry, which not only provides us with a notable competitive advantage but is also our license to operate. Important part of this is occupational health and safety, which will be our number one priority in everything that we do. My first weeks as the YIT CEO have only strengthened my belief in this company. The competence, professionalism and passion of our people, and their outstanding team spirit are a strong foundation to build upon. The quality of work at our construction sites is among the best in the industry. Our overall customer satisfaction is at a very good level and the YIT brand is highly appreciated. We will now move into an era of steady operational performance with an efficient cost structure. This will give us the power to successfully perform in any market condition and enable us to create value for our shareholders.”   Results January—March At the end of the first quarter 2021, YIT’s order book amounted to EUR 3,716 million (31 Dec 2020: 3,528). The order book remained stable in the Partnership properties segment and increased in all other segments. At the end of the quarter, 80% of the order book was sold (31 Dec 2020: 82). The Group’s revenue was EUR 606 million (708). Revenue decreased in the Business premises, Housing Russia and Infrastructure segments. In Housing Russia, the corresponding period included a positive impact of EUR 57 million from the change in revenue recognition over time. In Housing Finland and CEE and the Partnership properties, revenue increased. The Group’s adjusted operating profit amounted to EUR 21 million (8) and the adjusted operating profit margin to 3.5% (1.2). The result improved in the Business premises and Housing Finland and CEE segments, but weakened in Housing Russia, Infrastructure and the Partnership properties. YIT’s operating profit was EUR 14 million (-3). The adjusting items amounted to EUR 7 million (12) including operating profit from operations to be closed. During the comparison period, the adjusted items included, among others, a goodwill impairment in the Housing Russia segment.   Guidance for 2021 In Housing Finland and CEE, housing completions in 2021 are expected to decrease compared to 2020 and volatility between the quarters is expected to be high. Compared to the first quarter of 2021, the number of completions is expected to increase in the second quarter but then decrease clearly in the third quarter. The fourth-quarter completions are expected to be at a high level. For the full year, Housing Russia’s solid underlying performance is estimated to continue. In Business premises, performance is expected to stabilise. Project management issues in the Infrastructure segment are burdening earnings but those issues are expected to be resolved as the year progresses. In Partnership properties, portfolio development is expected to continue. YIT expects its full-year 2021 adjusted operating profit to be higher than in 2020 (EUR 85 million). The result is dependent on certain project completions and contract closings towards the end of the year. Temporary shutdowns or slower progress on construction sites and delayed completions due to the COVID-19 pandemic could lead to the postponement of revenue and profit from one quarter or year to another. Changes in market yields or estimated future cash flows may have impacts on the fair value of the investments.   News conference for investors and media YIT will arrange a news conference on Friday, 30 April 2021 at 10.00 a.m. Finnish time (EET, at 8.00 a.m. GMT). The results will be presented by Markku Moilanen, President and CEO of YIT Corporation, and CFO Ilkka Salonen.

Business Review for the period January - March 2021

Viking Line Abp               BUSINESS REVIEW              30.04.2021, 9.20 AMBusiness Review for the period January - March 2021Sales and earnings Consolidated sales decreased 67.2% to EUR 24.6 M during the period January 1–March 31, 2021 (EUR 75.0 M January 1–March 31, 2020). Operating income totalled EUR -7.7 M (EUR -21.5 M). Passenger-related revenue decreased 77.1% to EUR 14.5 M (EUR 63.2 M), while cargo revenue amounted to EUR 9.6 M (EUR 11.3 M). The sales contribution was 19.6 M (EUR 54.9 M). Operating costs decreased 54.6% to EUR 32.4 M (EUR 71.5 M). Results for the first quarter were characterized by low market demand in the passenger segment, with revenue from Viking Line’s public service obligations and cargo constituting the most important sources of income. Salary and other employment benefit expenses decreased sharply during the period. A large percentage of the staff in Finland were furloughed. In Sweden and Estonia, short-term furloughs were used. In addition to the furloughs, redundancies in the land-based organization and on Viking Cinderella contributed to the decrease in expenses. On March 12, 2021, negotiations were begun on further redundancies affecting staff on Viking Cinderella. The negotiations involve 84 people. Costs of goods and services as well as other operating costs decreased as a result of reduced operations. During the period, the Group received aid for its public service obligations from Traficom as well as aid for re-employment from the Development and Management Centre of Finland’s Centres for Economic Development, Transport and the Environment (known as ELY centres) and of Finland’s Local Employment and Economic Development Offices. The aid is recognized as State aid under other operating revenue. Service and market The Viking Line Group provides passenger and cargo carrier services using seven vessels on the northern Baltic Sea and in the Gulf of Finland. The vessels served the same routes as in 2020, although the vessels that normally sail between Helsinki and Stockholm have been taken out of service due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The total number of passengers on Viking Line’s vessels during the report period was 170,362 (842,229). The Group had a total market share in its service area of approximately 28.1% (28.1%). Viking Line’s cargo volume was 31,755 cargo units (31,538). Viking Line’s share of the cargo market was approximately 17.0% (17.1%). The market share for passenger cars was approximately 29.6% (23.9%). Due to the ongoing pandemic, all travel has been sharply limited. However, the European Commission has now decided to implement Digital Green Certificates (DGCs) for people travelling between EU countries for the summer of 2021. DGCs provide countries in this service area with a framework for the controlled easing of national travel restrictions currently in effect. As national COVID vaccination programmes are carried out, expectations are that demand for local tourism in particular could grow going forward. Investments and financing The Group’s investments amounted to EUR 2.5 M (EUR 7.0 M), of which EUR 2.1 M (EUR 2.7 M) pertains to the capitalization of costs and advance payments for vessels under construction. The Group’s total investments constitute 10.0% of revenue (9.4%). Construction of the vessel Viking Glory is progressing in China. The vessel is expected to be delivered during the fourth quarter of 2021. Delivery will thus be later than the agreed delivery time. On March 31, 2021, the Group’s non-current interest-bearing liabilities totalled EUR 39.9 M (EUR 92.6 M). The equity/assets ratio was 45.1% compared to 48.4% a year earlier. At the end of March, the Group’s cash and cash equivalents amounted to EUR 24.9 M (EUR 34.2 M). Unutilized credit lines in the Group totalled EUR 4.7 M on March 31, 2021 (EUR 15.1 M). Net cash flow from operating activities amounted to EUR -10.6 M (EUR -28.0 M). Net cash flow from investing activities was EUR -2.5 M (EUR -6.9 M) and net cash flow from financing activities amounted to EUR 8.3 M (EUR 6.4 M). In 2020, the Finnish Government approved State guarantees on Viking Line’s liquidity loans of up to EUR 38.7 M. With the liquidity loans, the company’s liquidity position improved and thus ensuring continued financially stable operations in the situation that has arisen as a result of the coronavirus crisis. In addition to the Finnish State guarantees, commercial banks have guaranteed EUR 4.3 M. The Group had drawn EUR 39 M of the liquidity loans on March 31, 2021. Viking Line undertakes not to pay a dividend or pay out any funds until its obligations related to the guarantees and loans have been met in full. Most of the Group’s loan agreements include loan covenants according to market terms. Covenant terms entail minimum requirements for liquidity and solvency and a maximum net debt-to-EBITDA ratio. The Group has been granted a time-limited exemption from the covenant terms and conditions that were breached during the first quarter of 2021 for those loans already drawn. For one of the loans of EUR 74.6 M, the company has been granted a waiver from one of the financial covenants until December 31, 2021. Negotiations are now being carried out in a positive spirit on an extension of the exemption from the covenant terms. The formal decision is expected to be received in May 2021. Since the waiver was not approved for the coming 12 months at the end of the reporting period, that loan is classified in the balance sheet in this report as short-term. The loan will be re-classified to long-term liabilities after the company has received the decision on the extension.Liquidity can also be strengthened by a shareholder contribution or through the sale of assets. Organization and personnel The average number of full-time employees in the Group was 1,224 (2,451), of whom 776 (1,846) worked for the parent company. Land-based personnel totalled 324 (567) and shipboard personnel totalled 900 (1,884). In addition to the Group’s own employees, Viking XPRS was crewed by an average of 135 (216) people employed by a staffing company. The number of employees in 2021 is far lower than in 2020, since a large percentage of staff were furloughed during the period. Along with the furloughs, redundancies in the land-based organization and on Viking Cinderella affected the number of employees. Risk factors The COVID-19 pandemic has had a significant impact on Viking Line’s earnings and liquidity and will continue to have a negative impact. Uncertainty about regulatory requirements and related restrictions to passenger traffic and about market demand will affect Viking Line’s operations, results and financial position.The Group’s loans are tied to loan covenants that include profitability, liquidity and solvency requirements. If the terms in these covenants are not met, financiers can demand early repayment or cancellation of the loans.  Quarterly consolidated incomestatement 2021 2020 2020 2020 2020EUR M Q1 Q4 Q3 Q2 Q1 SALES 24.6 34.6 56.6 22.6 75.0 Other operating revenue 10.3 10.2 0.7 14.9 1.2 ExpensesGoods and services 5.0 11.6 15.3 4.0 20.0Salary and other employment 13.5 16.3 15.5 13.8 27.3benefit expensesDepreciation, amortization and 5.1 6.6 6.0 6.0 6.1impairment lossesOther operating expenses 19.0 24.4 28.3 19.6 44.2 42.5 58.9 65.1 43.4 97.7 OPERATING INCOME -7.7 -14.1 -7.8 -5.9 -21.5 Financial income 0.0 0.4 0.0 0.0 0.0Financial expenses -1.3 -0.8 -1.0 -0.2 -1.9 INCOME BEFORE TAXES -8.9 -14.5 -8.8 -6.1 -23.4 Income taxes 1.8 2.9 1.7 1.2 4.7 INCOME FOR THE PERIOD -7.2 -11.6 -7.1 -4.9 -18.7 Income attributable to:Parent company shareholders  -7.2 -11.6 -7.1 -4.9 -18.7 Earnings per share before and -0.66 -1.07 -0.66 -0.46 -1.74after dilution, EUR Quarterly consolidatedstatement of comprehensive income 2021 2020 2020 2020 2020EUR M Q1 Q4 Q3 Q2 Q1 INCOME FOR THE PERIOD -7.2 -11.6 -7.1 -4.9 -18.7 Items that may be reclassifiedto the income statement   Translation differences -0.5 1.1 -0.1 0.9 -1.1 Items that will not bereclassified to the incomestatementChanges in the fair value offinancial assets recognizedat fair value through other - 0.6 0.0 - -comprehensive income Other comprehensive income -0.5 1.7 -0.1 0.9 -1.1 COMPREHENSIVE INCOME FOR THE -7.6 -9.9 -7.2 -4.0 -19.8PERIOD Comprehensive incomeattributable to:Parent company shareholders  -7.6 -9.9 -7.2 -4.0 -19.8 Key figures and statistics  Jan 1, 2021- Jan 1, 2020- Jan 1, 2020- Mar 31, 2021 Mar 31, 2020 Dec 31, 2020 Equity per share, EUR 17.28 19.94 17.98Equity/assets ratio 45.1 % 48.4 % 46.4 % Investments, EUR M 2.5 7.0 15.0 – as % of sales 10.0 % 9.4 % 7.9 % Passengers 170,362 842,229 1,927,302Cargo units 31,755 31,538 125,693 Average number of employees, full 1,224 2,451 1,640-time equivalent Equity/assets ratio, % = (Equityincluding minority interest) /(Total assets – advances received) When rounding off items to thenearest EUR 1,000,000, rounding-offdifferences of EUR +/– 0.1 M mayoccur.   The above figures from the financialstatements have not been audited. Outlook for the full financial year 2021 There is still uncertainty about regulatory decisions and requirements and about what impact vaccination programmes will have, but with the right exit strategies from both the Finnish and Swedish States there is potential for increased market demand. This will affect Viking Line’s operations, results and financial position. However, we believe it is too soon to quantify the impact on earnings since there is great uncertainty about the trend. As a result, the management has provided no earnings forecast for 2021. As COVID vaccination programmes have accelerated and given the European Commission’s decision to introduce Green Digital Certificates (DGCs) for people travelling within the EU for the summer of 2021, the conditions improve for increased travel going forward.

Notes to the Business Review for the period January-March 2021 1. Accounting principles This Business Review has been prepared in accordance with IFRS and consists of a summary of the financial statements for the period in accordance with IAS 34. This has been done as a result of the financial situation stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic. For cash and cash holdings with a short maturity, the recognized value is considered equivalent to fair value. The carrying amount of trade receivables and other receivables as well as for trade payables and other liabilities is considered equivalent to fair value based on the short-term nature of the items. The carrying amount of interest-bearing liabilities is equivalent to fair value. The Business Review has otherwise been prepared in accordance with the same accounting principles, estimates and valuations as in the most recent annual accounts, unless otherwise indicated below. Depending on its nature, public aid received is recognized as other operating revenue, compensation to employees or a decrease in advance payments related to vessels under construction. Historically, the most important season is during the third quarter, but because of COVID-19 the seasonal fluctuations have not been normal. Uncertainty about regulatory requirements, restrictions to passenger traffic and market demand will affect seasonal fluctuations going forward.  This Business Review has not been subject to an audit. When rounding off items to the nearest EUR 1,000,000, rounding-off differences of EUR+/- 0.1 M may occur. 2. Estimates and judgements In preparing the consolidated financial statements in compliance with IFRSs, the company’s management must make judgements and estimates about the future that affect the reported amounts for assets and liabilities, revenue and expenses as well as other information. The judgements and estimates contained in the financial statements are based on the best assessment of management on the date of the financial statements. The COVID-19 pandemic has caused a severe deterioration in the Group’s operating conditions and has affected both the income statement and balance sheet. An account of the biggest changes is given in the notes below. It is difficult at present to estimate how long the pandemic will last and what impact it will have on Viking Line’s future earnings, financial position and cash flow. The actual outcome may deviate from the estimates and judgements made.The most important area that entails judgements is the valuation of the Group’s vessels. The vessels’ residual values and estimated periods of use are examined yearly and adjusted if they deviate significantly from earlier values. The depreciation period for the vessels’ hull, machinery and other long-term components has been extended from 25 years to 30 years as of January 1, 2021, since the period of use for the vessels is considered to be longer than 25 years. Residual values have remained unchanged; see Note 7. The Group’s management has made a judgement on obsolete assets in the sales inventory due to slower turnover and reduced demand as a direct result of COVID-19. During the first quarter, no material impairment losses were recognized in the consolidated income statement. 3. Going concern, risks and liquidity The COVID-19 pandemic is an uncertainty factor that, should related risks be realized in full, could lead to uncertainty about the company’s ability to continue operations. This Business Review has been prepared in accordance with the going concern principle since in the view of Viking Line’s Board of Directors the company can continue its operations and meet its obligations over the foreseeable future, at least 12 months from the date of approval of this report. This view is based on the business plan approved by the Board of Directors, which takes COVID-19 in account, and on additional financing.In 2020, the Finnish Government approved the State’s guarantees on Viking Line’s liquidity loans up to EUR 38.7 M. With the liquidity loans, the company’s liquidity position improved, thus ensuring continued financially stable operations in the situation that has arisen as a result of the coronavirus crisis. In addition to the Finnish State guarantees, commercial banks have guaranteed EUR 4.3 M. The Group had drawn EUR 39 M of the liquidity loans on March 31, 2021. Viking Line undertakes not to pay a dividend or pay out any funds until its obligations related to the guarantees and loans have been met in full. The Group’s cash and cash holdings at the end of March totalled EUR 24.9 M (EUR 34.2 M). Unutilized credit lines in the Group totalled EUR 4.7 M on March 31, 2021 (EUR 15.1 M). The net cash flow from operating activities was EUR -10.6 M (EUR -280 M). Net cash flow from investing activities was EUR -2.5 M (EUR -6.9 M) and net cash flow from financing activities amounted to EUR 8.3 M (EUR 6.4 M).Liquidity can also be strengthened by a shareholder contribution or through the sale of assets.In 2020, Viking Line Abp signed an agreement with Finnvera Abp and Finlands Exportkredit Ab on a loan payment deferral for payments during the period July 1, 2020–July 31, 2021, totalling EUR 22.4 M. Payments fall due by January 10, 2025, at the latest – in other words, at the time final payment is due. The deferred loan payments may be paid in advance, and the interest rate and maturity of the loan remain unchanged. The payment of dividends during the maturity of the loan is conditional upon payment of the loan payments for which a deferral has been granted. Most of the Group’s loan agreements include loan covenants according to market terms. The financial covenants in the loan agreement consist of a minimum liquidity requirement and a maximum total net debt-to-EBITDA ratio for the Group. The Group has been granted a time-limited exemption from the covenant terms that were breached during the first quarter of 2021 for those loans already drawn. For one of the loans of EUR 74.6 M, the company has been granted a waiver from one of the financial covenants until December 31, 2021. Negotiations are now being carried out in a positive spirit on an extension of the exemption from the covenant terms. The formal decision is expected to be received in May 2021. Since the waiver was not approved for the coming 12 months at the end of the reporting period, that loan is classified in the balance sheet in this report as short-term. The loan will be re-classified to long-term liabilities after the company has received the decision on the extension.In the event the pandemic persists longer than the Board expects and should the strengthening measures noted above not succeed, there is significant doubt about the company’s ability to continue operations.Future cash flows pertaining to financial liabilities on March 31, 2021:  EUR M Future cash flows related to Trade Interest- Total financial liabilities (incl. financial expenses) payables bearing liabilities 2021 8.3 116.9 125.2 2022 7.6 7.6 2023 7.0 7.0 2024 18.1 18.1 2025 2.3 2.3 2026- 9.7 9.7 Total 8.3 161.5 169.9 2021 covers a nine-month period. The other years are calendar years. Financing of vessel construction Advance payments are related to vessels under construction and totalled EUR 56.3 M on March 31, 2021, after a deduction of EUR 4.9 M related to EU aid. These consist of advance payments in compliance with vessel construction (newbuilding) contracts, planning and monitoring expenses, and capitalized borrowing expenses. In the event the vessel construction contract should be terminated, the company has a bank guarantee as security for advance payments made of EUR 38.8 M plus interest. Other capitalized planning, monitoring and borrowing expenses of EUR 22.4 M would in that case be charged to income. Part of the EU aid would in that case also need to be repaid. A total of 78.4% of the contract price is financed by a consortium of commercial banks; 90.0% of the credit amount is guaranteed by China Export & Credit Insurance Corporation. The binding loan commitment of EUR 152.0 M shall be used when final payment is made upon delivery of the vessel. The loan commitment includes financial covenants according to market terms. The terms of the covenant include (i) a minimum requirement for cash and cash holdings, whereby the company shall ensure that minimum liquidity is always greater than the higher of EUR 20 M or 5% of total net debt and (ii) a maximum net debt/EBITDA ratio for the Group. The net debt/EBITDA ratio covenant was breached during the first quarter of 2021. The Group has been granted a time-limited exemption until June 30, 2021. Negotiations are under way to extend the exemption from the covenant terms agreed.   4. Segment information Consolidated revenue decreased by 67.2% and passenger-related revenue decreased by 77.1% due to travel restrictions imposed by authorities and to market demand in conjunction with the COVID-19 pandemic.  Segment information, Viking Line Group Jan 1, 2021- Jan 1, 2020- Jan 1, 2020-EUR M Mar 31, 2021 Mar 31, 2020 Dec 31, 2020 SalesVessels 23.7 73.5 185.1Unallocated 0.9 1.5 3.8Total, operating segments 24.6 75.0 188.9Eliminations 0.0 0.0 -0.1Total sales of the Group 24.6 75.0 188.8 Operating incomeVessels -0.8 -11.4 -23.2Unallocated -6.9 -10.1 -26.1Total operating income of the Group -7.7 -21.5 -49.3 SALESPassenger-related revenue     14.5 63.2 148.2Cargo revenue 9.6 11.3 38.8Miscellaneous sales revenue     0.5 0.5 1.8Total 24.6 75.0 188.8 5. Other operating revenue During the financial year, the Group received aid for public service obligations from Traficom for the Group’s vessels on the routes Turku–Långnäs–Stockholm, Mariehamn-Kapellskär and Helsinki–Tallinn as well as aid for re-employment from the Development and Management Centre of Finland’s Centres for Economic Development, Transport and the Environment (known as ELY centres) and of Finland’s Local Employment and Economic Development Offices. The aid is recognized as public aid under other operating revenue.  Jan 1, 2021– Jan 1, 2020–EUR M Mar 31, 2021 Mar 31, 2020 State aid 10.2 1.1 Rents received on properties 0.0 0.0 Capital gains 0.0 0.0 Miscellaneous other operating revenue     0.0 0.0 Total 10.3 1.2 6. Compensation to employees A large percentage of staff in Finland has been furloughed. In Sweden and Estonia, State-subsidized short-term furlough programmes have been used. Furloughs have been carried out in the form of part-time furloughs and on the vessels to a large extent in the form of full-time furloughs. In addition to the furloughs, redundancies in the land-based organization and on Viking Cinderella contributed to the decrease in expenses. The Group receives government restitution from Finland and Sweden related to taxes and social security contributions for shipboard employees in keeping with European Union guidelines. The Group has received short-term aid in Sweden and Estonia for short-term furloughs utilized. Restitution received and short-term aid for furloughs have been recognized in the income statement under salary and other employment benefit expenses for the period in which the basis for the restitution and aid arose.  Jan 1, 2021– Jan 1, 2020–EUR M Mar 31, 2021 Mar 31, 2020 Salaries 14.5 28.3 Expenses of defined-contribution pensions     1.7 3.1 Other payroll overhead 1.9 3.1 18.1 34.5 Government restitution -3.2 -6.9 Aid for furloughs -1.5 -0.3 Total 13.5 27.3 7. Depreciation The depreciation period for the vessels’ hull, machinery and other long-term components has been extended from 25 years to 30 years as of January 1, 2021, since the period of use for the vessels is considered to be longer than 25 years. The residual values have remained unchanged. The change compared to last year is mostly due to a change in depreciation periods.  Jan 1, 2021– Jan 1, 2020–EUR Mar 31, 2021 Mar 31, 2020M Depreciation and amortization Intangible assets 0.1 0.1 Building and 0.1 0.1 structures Renovation costs 0.1 0.1 for rented properties Vessels 4.1 5.1 Machinery and 0.2 0.3 equipment Right-of-use assets 0.6 0.5 Total 5.1 6.1 Total depreciation, 5.1 6.1 amortization and impairment losses 8.

Income taxes On March 31, 2021, the Group recognized net deferred tax liabilities of EUR 25.2 M, of which EUR 37.4 M pertains to deferred tax liabilities and EUR 12.3 M pertains to deferred tax assets. A loss recognized in taxation for the financial year 2020 can be deducted from taxable income over 10 years. Based on the management’s estimates and judgements, Viking Line expects that it will be possible to use the loss against future taxable income.  EURM Differences between recognized value of fixed assets Losses Other Total and their value recognized temporary for tax purposes in taxation differences Jan 1, 2021 36.9 -10.2 0.5 27.1 Translation 0.0 - - 0.0 differences Recognized in - -2.1 0.1 -1.9 income statement Recognized - - - - directly in equity Mar 31, 2021 36.9 -12.3 0.6 25.2 11. Impairment testing Recognized values for intangible and tangible assets are tested regularly in order to identify any external or internal indications of an impairment loss. If such indications are observed for any asset item, the recoverable amount of the asset is recognized. One of the most important areas that entail judgements is valuation of the Group’s vessels. The COVID-19 pandemic has had a serious impact on the Group’s operating conditions and financial position. In the management’s view, there is currently no need for impairment, since the fair value of vessels is substantially higher than the carrying amount.The management has also made a judgement that there is no need for impairment for the Group’s other non-current assets. The Group’s management has made a judgement on obsolete assets in the sales inventory due to slower turnover and reduced demand as a direct result of COVID-19. During the first quarter, no material impairment losses were recognized in the consolidated income statement. 12. Trade and other receivables Trade receivables are recognized at amortized cost in accordance with IFRS 9. The carrying amount of trade receivables and other receivables is considered equivalent to fair value based on the short-term nature of the items. The COVID-19 pandemic has not led to any change in expected credit losses in trade receivables. 13. Events after the balance sheet date Viking Line Abp received a EUR 4.9 M dividend from Alandia Försäkring Abp. Viking Line Abp is one of the founders of the company Alandia Holding, which signed an agreement on April 1, 2021, to acquire Investeringsbolaget Rettig’s shares in Alandia Försäkring Abp. The purchase must be approved by the Finnish Financial Supervisory Authority. The company has extended one of its overdraft facilities. Otherwise the management knows of no other significant events after the balance sheet date that could affect the financial statements.

MPC Energy Solutions publishes Annual Report 2020 and appoints CFO

Amsterdam/Oslo – 30 April 2021 – MPC Energy Solutions NV, Amsterdam, ("MPC Energy Solutions", "the Company") today publishes its report for the financial year 2020. The Company only commenced its full operations with the equity capital raise and IPO in early 2021.

The dividend is proposed to be paid out in two installments. At the first installment, SEK 1.20 with record date 4 June 2021. At the second installment, SEK 1.20 with record date 1 December 2021. Should the Meeting resolve in favor of the proposal, payment of the dividend is expected to be facilitated by Euroclear on 9 June 2021 and on 6 December 2021, respectively. Item 17 – Guidelines for remuneration to executive management The board of directors seeks to attain a remuneration system for the CEO, other members of the executive management (ExCom) and other employees which is in line with market conditions and competitive, so that EQT is able to recruit, motivate and retain qualified personnel and the best talent. The guidelines for executive remuneration proposed by the board of directors are included in full below. Guidelines for executive remuneration (remuneration policy) The CEO, the deputy CEO and other members of the Executive Committee (executive management) fall within the provisions of these guidelines. To the extent a board member conducts work for EQT, in addition to the board work, consulting fees and other compensation for such work may be paid. The guidelines are forward-looking, i.e. they are applicable to remuneration agreed, and amendments to remuneration already agreed, after adoption of the guidelines by the annual shareholders’ meeting 2020. These guidelines do not apply to any remuneration separately decided or approved by the shareholders’ meeting. EQT has a clear remuneration philosophy (including for variable cash) applicable across the whole group which also governs the remuneration to the Executive Committee and links compensation to EQT AB Group’s business strategy, sustainability, long-term interests and long-term value growth for its shareholders. Most important is to incentivize fund performance and ensure aligned interest with our limited partners in the EQT funds, EQT AB’s shareholders as well as EQT’s long term approach. EQT is a performance driven organization focused on long-term value creation in line with our culture. Team performance and individual performance are important – therefore we reward both. Performance is key to our success and we award higher performance with higher compensation. To be able to achieve the business goals, EQT needs to be able to attract and retain world class talent suitable for each role. To achieve this, EQT applies market competitive total compensation. EQT compensate locally based on geography and in line with local practice and regulations, taking into account, to the extent possible, the overall purpose of these guidelines. The principles in these guidelines enable EQT AB to offer the Executive Committee a competitive total remuneration. For more information regarding the EQT AB Group’s business strategy, please see EQT AB’s webpage,  www.eqtgroup.com. EQT Share program An incentive program, the EQT Share program, has been implemented in the EQT AB Group. The EQT Share program has been resolved by the shareholders’ meeting and is therefore excluded from these guidelines. The program includes members of the Executive Committee in EQT AB. The performance criteria used to assess the outcome of the program are distinctly linked to the EQT AB Group’s business strategy, sustainability, long-term interests and value growth for its shareholders. These performance criteria comprise financial targets, inter alia, revenue growth and EBITDA, and in addition thereto the general competitiveness as well as the individual meeting or exceeding EQT AB’s highly set expectations on adding value to the EQT platform. The participants will invest a variable amount (financed by EQT) in C shares after a performance year, whereupon a three-year (approximately) holding period follows. For more information regarding the EQT Share program, including the criteria which the outcome depends on, please see eqtgroup.com/shareholders/corporate-governance/incentive-programs/ . Types of remuneration, etc. The remuneration shall be on market terms and may consist of the following components: fixed remuneration, variable cash remuneration, pension benefits and other benefits. Additionally, the shareholders’ meeting may – irrespective of these guidelines – resolve on, among other things, share-related or share price-related remuneration. Fixed remuneration The fixed remuneration, i.e. base salary, should be competitive and reflect responsibility and performance. Variable remuneration The satisfaction of criteria for awarding variable cash remuneration, within the EQT Bonus program, shall be measured over a period of one year. The variable cash remuneration may amount to no more than 100 percent of the annual base salary. The EQT Bonus program consists of a performance assessment of the business as well as an individual performance assessment. Important business performance factors determining the size of the bonus is the success of the underlying business measured by business performance in the funds (investments and exits as well as portfolio and fund performance), business profitability, fundraising, sustainability as well as organizational development. The individual performance is assessed versus agreed targets as well as meeting, exceeding or not meeting high set individual performance expectations for the individual in the current role. To which extent the criteria for awarding variable cash remuneration has been satisfied shall be evaluated/determined when the measurement period has ended. The remuneration committee shall be responsible for the evaluation so far as it concerns variable remuneration to the CEO. For variable cash remuneration to other members of the Executive Committee, the CEO shall be responsible for the evaluation. For financial objectives, the evaluation shall be based on the latest financial information made public by EQT AB. The Executive Committee partly consists of owners of EQT AB. Owners that owned above 1.5 percent of the shares of EQT AB at IPO may not be comprised by the EQT Bonus program, i.e. variable cash remuneration, nor the EQT Share program. Therefore, total remuneration for the majority of the Executive Committee consists of base salary, pension benefits and other benefits. Pension All members of the Executive Committee shall be covered by defined contribution pension plans, for which pension premiums shall be based on the members’ base salary and paid by the company during the period of employment. For current members of the Executive Committee pension contributions shall be based on base salary and follow contribution levels in accordance with local market practice, except for the application of a cap. For Sweden, this means that it shall be comparable to the old BTP-plan with a contribution cap for base salary exceeding 40 Income base amounts. The pension premiums shall amount to no more than 25 percent of the annual base salary. Other benefits Other benefits, such as insurances (health, life, travel), sports contributions or occupational health services, should be payable to the extent this is considered to be in line with market conditions in the market concerned. Premiums and other costs relating to such benefits may amount to no more than 25 percent of the annual base salary. Termination of employment and terms for severance pay for the CEO A twelve month notice period will apply if notice is given by the CEO or EQT AB. The CEO’s employment terms include a non-competition clause. If used, this would entitle the employee to an additional compensation corresponding to a maximum of twelve months’ salary, however, reduced by any remuneration paid by a new employer. Termination of employment and terms for severance pay for senior executives In the event of notice being given by the EQT AB Group, a notice period of nine months applies, while in the event of notice being given by the senior executive a period of notice of six months applies. The senior executives’ employment terms also include a non-competition clause. If used, this entitles the employee to an additional compensation corresponding to a maximum of nine months’ salary, however, reduced by any remuneration paid by a new employer. Base salary during the notice period and severance pay may not together exceed an amount corresponding to the base salary for eighteen months. When termination is made by the executive, the notice period may not exceed six months, without any right to severance pay. Salary and employment conditions for employees taken into account during preparations of these guidelines In the preparation of the board of directors’ proposal for these remuneration guidelines, salary and employment conditions for employees of the EQT AB Group have been taken into account by including information on the employees’ total income, the components of the remuneration and increase and growth rate over time, in the remuneration committee’s and the board of directors’ basis of decision when evaluating whether the guidelines and the limitations set out herein are reasonable. The decision-making process to determine, review and implement the guidelines The board of directors has established a remuneration committee. The committee’s tasks include preparing the board of directors’ decision to propose guidelines for executive remuneration. The board of directors shall prepare a proposal for new guidelines at least every fourth year and submit it to the shareholders’ meeting. The guidelines shall be in force until new guidelines are adopted by the shareholders’ meeting. The remuneration committee shall also monitor and evaluate programs for variable remuneration for the Executive Committee, the application of the guidelines for executive remuneration as well as the current remuneration structures and compensation levels in the EQT AB Group. The members of the remuneration committee, apart from Conni Jonsson, are independent of EQT AB and its Executive Committee. The CEO and other members of the Executive Committee do not participate in the board of directors’ processing of and resolutions regarding remuneration-related matters in so far as they are affected by such matters. Deviation from the guidelines The board of directors may temporarily resolve to deviate from the guidelines, in whole or in part, if in a specific case there may be special cause for the deviation and a deviation should be necessary to serve the EQT AB Group’s business strategy, sustainability, long-term interests and long-term value growth for its shareholders, or to ensure the EQT AB Group’s financial viability. As set out above, the remuneration committee’s tasks include preparing the board of directors’ resolutions in remuneration-related matters. This includes any resolutions to deviate from the guidelines. Description of material changes to the guidelines and how the views of shareholders’ have been taken into consideration No material changes have been made to these suggested guidelines, compared to the guidelines previously approved. However, it has been clarified that sustainability shall be taken into consideration in relation to variable remuneration. Furthermore, the previous Capital Raising and Client Relations responsible was entitled to a variable remuneration corresponding to maximum 700 percent of the annual base salary. Following changes in the composition of the Executive Committee during 2020, this is no longer applicable. Finally, it has been clarified that owners that owned more than 1.5 percent of the shares of EQT AB at the IPO may not be comprised by the EQT Bonus program nor the EQT Share program. Item 18 – Authorization for the board of directors to issue shares The board of directors proposes that the Meeting resolves to authorize the board of directors to, during the period until the next Annual General Meeting, on one or more occasions, resolve upon issuances of new shares to be paid by way of set-off and/or in kind. Shares may be issued without preferential rights for the shareholders of EQT AB. The number of shares issued may not correspond to a dilution of more than 10 per cent of the total number of shares outstanding at the Meeting’s resolution on the proposed authorization, after full exercise of the hereby proposed authorization. The purpose of the authorization is to provide flexibility for acquisitions of companies, businesses or parts thereof. Any issue of new shares resolved upon pursuant to this authorization shall be made at market terms and conditions. The nomination committee’s proposals The nomination committee, consisting of Jacob Wallenberg (Investor AB, chairperson of the nomination committee), Harry Klagsbrun (Bark Partners AB), Kine Burøy-Olsen (Lennart Blecher), Magnus Billing (Alecta) and Conni Jonsson (chairperson of the board of directors), jointly representing approximately 38 percent of the votes for all the shares in EQT, proposes the following: Item 2 – The chairperson of the Meeting Attorney Erik Sjöman or, in case he is prevented, the person assigned by the nomination committee instead.

New study finds that vortioxetine helps patients with MDD and comorbid Generalized Anxiety Disorder

H. Lundbeck A/S (Lundbeck) announces positive data showing that Trintellix/Brintellix[®] (vortioxetine) helps people living with Major Depressive Disorder and Generalized Anxiety Disorder as a co-morbidity. The study, which is called RECONNECT, was carried out from the end of 2019 and finished March 2021. A significant improvement in symptoms of depression as measured by Montgomery-Åsberg Depression Rating Scale (MADRS) was observed with a decrease of 16.85 points from baseline. The MADRS total score has a range of 0-60, with higher scores indicating greater severity, and a decrease of 16.85 is considered clinically meaningful. There was also a significant improvement in anxiety symptoms, with a decrease of 16.05 points from baseline as measured by the Hamilton Anxiety Rating Scale (HAM-A). HAM-A has a range from 0-56, with higher scores indicating greater severity, and a decrease of 16.05 is seen as a clinically meaningful improvement. “We are very pleased to be able to share such positive data on the effects of vortioxetine in people diagnosed with both MDD and GAD, a highly comorbid condition. The observed improvements on functional readouts following vortioxetine treatment are particularly encouraging, since patients with MDD and comorbid GAD are well-recognized to have poor overall functioning, including patients’ social, family and work life,” says Johan Luthman, Executive Vice President, Research and Development at Lundbeck. Improvement in depressive and anxiety symptoms in the study population was strongly and significantly correlated with improvement in patients overall functioning, as measured by the clinician-rated Functioning Assessment Short Test (FAST), and health-related quality of life, as measured by the Quality of Life Enjoyment and Satisfaction Questionnaire long form (Q-LES-Q). Safety and tolerability data reported in the study were consistent with data from the pivotal development program of vortioxetine, confirming the tolerability profile of the compound. In total, 100 patients were enrolled in the study. The patients had a primary diagnosis of MDD and comorbid diagnosis of GAD (made prior to their current event depressive episode).At study entry the patients were severely depressed (average MADRS total score at baseline 30 points) and anxious (average HAM-A total score at baseline 29 points). Patients were treated open-label with flexible doses of 10 and 20 mg vortioxetine. A forced up-titration to 20 mg vortioxetine was scheduled after 1 week of treatment with 10 mg. The study was conducted in France, Spain, Italy, South Korea, and Poland. Seventy-seven percent of the patients had already failed another antidepressant before enrolling in the study. Patients with MDD and comorbid GAD is a patient population that is more difficult to treat than patients with a singular diagnosis of MDD or GAD.[i] This means longer treatment duration, higher risk of withdrawal from treatment, and poorer remission rates. Patients who have depression and comorbid anxiety also have higher severity of illness, higher chronicity, and significantly greater impairment in work functioning, psychosocial functioning, and quality of life than patients not suffering from comorbidity[ii]. The results of the study will be presented at ECNP’s (The European College of Neuropsychopharmacology) yearly congress in October in Lisbon this year and is intended to be published in a peer-reviewed scientific journal during 2021/2022.

The primary outcome was change from baseline to week 8 in MADRS total score. Key secondary endpoints in the study included change from baseline to week 8 in HAM-A total score, Functioning Assessment Short Test (FAST), and Q-LES-Q.   About vortioxetineThe mechanism of the antidepressant effect of vortioxetine is not fully understood. It is an inhibitor of serotonin (5-HT) reuptake and that is thought to be a mechanism of its action. It is also an agonist at 5-HT\1A\ receptors, a partial agonist at 5-HT\1B\ receptors and an antagonist at 5-HT\3\, 5-HT\1D\ and 5-HT\7\ receptors. The contribution of each of these activities to vortioxetine's antidepressant effect has not been established. Vortioxetine is considered to be the first and only compound with this combination of pharmacodynamic activity. The clinical relevance of this is unknown. Vortioxetine was discovered by Lundbeck researchers in Copenhagen, Denmark. Depending on the market, vortioxetine is known as Trintellix[®] or Brintellix[®]. About LundbeckH.

Finanstilsynet confirms administrative fine

On 7 December 2020 , DNB announced that a preliminary report from Finanstilsynet (the Financial Supervisory Authority of Norway) indicated the possibility of an administrative fine of NOK 400 million, due to inadequate compliance with the Norwegian Anti-Money Laundering Act. Today, Finanstilsynet publishes its final report in this case, confirming that the fine is imposed. DNB has already recorded the total fine in its annual accounts for 2020. Finanstilsynet today also publishes a report from December 2020 on investigations regarding the Icelandic fisheries company Samherji. Samherji has been accused of money laundering and corruption in connection with the company’s activities in Namibia. Økokrim (the Norwegian National Authority for Investigation and Prosecution of Economic and Environmental Crime) carried out a thorough investigation of DNB’s role in the Samherji case. The police dropped the case against DNB on 11 February 2021, after DNB had disclosed all relevant information. The incidents covered by Finanstilsynet in the Samherji case partly took place so many years ago that they are time-barred, and occurred when the old anti-money laundering act was still in force. DNB’s anti-money laundering efforts have since been significantly intensified. DNB acknowledges that there were shortcomings related to customer due diligence in the six companies as noted by Finanstilsynet in connection with the Samherji case. The bank’s own investigations have uncovered the same shortcomings that Finanstilsynet points to. Partly as a result of the Samherji case, DNB has done a great deal of work on reviewing the customer portfolio. The purpose is for the bank to know the customers and understand the money laundering risk they represent. This work is extensive. Not under suspicion of money laundering DNB has not been under suspicion of money laundering or complicity in money laundering. Finanstilsynet is critical of DNB’s compliance with the AML regulations. Meeting the authorities’ expectations in the area of anti-money laundering to help combat financial crime is an important part of DNB’s corporate responsibility.  DNB spends considerable resources in the battle against money laundering. Nevertheless, DNB acknowledges that the anti-money laundering efforts had not given sufficient results at the time of the inspection, and the bank therefore accepts Finanstilsynet’s fine. The Board’s top priority In the past few years, DNB has implemented several measures to strengthen its anti-money laundering efforts. Organisation, risk assessment, risk classification and electronic monitoring are areas that have been significantly strengthened. The Board and Group Management regularly follow up this important work. DNB does not recognize Finanstilsynet’s assessment that the Board and management failed to prioritise anti-money laundering. The fight against money laundering is at the top of the Board’s agenda. Finanstilsynet is right to say that there are areas in which we need to improve, but we have also made great strides in the past few years. These efforts can be continually improved, and DNB will continue to prioritise this in the years ahead.

LeoVegas starts game studio

LeoVegas is starting its own game studio, Blue Guru Games, to develop new, innovative games. The studio will develop exclusive games for LeoVegas and will also offer games to other operators. The first games will be released in late 2021. LeoVegas Mobile Gaming Group has, through LeoVentures, started the game studio Blue Guru Games and LeoVegas’ share of ownership in 85%. From the start the company will have a team with more than 20 years of experience in game development and will draw upon all of the experience and knowledge of LeoVegas. The studio will develop and offer games both for the Group’s own brands and for other game operators. The ambition is to produce at least 20 games in the coming 24 months through Blue Guru Games.  “For a long time we have created exclusive games with the help of external providers, but now the time is right to take the step to do game development entirely on our own,” comments Gustaf Hagman, Group CEO, LeoVegas. “Drawing from our data and casino knowledge we will be able to drive innovation and create games that our customers truly enjoy. These may be everything from niche, local games for individual markets to broad international games. In addition, we will create games and unique characters that can be used in our marketing, which will build stronger loyalty to our brands. Having great flexibility in producing games is a competitive advantage, and it will also give us a new revenue stream over time.” Blue Guru Games will complement the games from the other 60 casino game providers that LeoVegas has access to today. The first games from the studio are expected to be released towards the end of 2021. These proprietary games will also give LeoVegas IP rights that will offer greater flexibility in how the characters and games may be used. The new game studio is part of LeoVegas’ strategy to cost effectively control a larger share of the gaming industry’s value chain. In addition to Blue Guru Games, LeoVentures has invested in, among other companies, CasinoGrounds, Pixel.bet and SharedPlay. LeoVegas also recently acquired the sports betting company Expekt.  for further INFORMATION, please contact:Gustaf Hagman, Group CEO+46 (0) 8 410 367 66, gustaf.hagman@leovegasgroup.comPhilip Doftvik, Director of Investor Relations and Corporate Finance+46 73 512 07 20, philip.doftvik@leovegasgroup.com about leovegas mobile gaming group:LeoVegas vision and position is ”King of Casino”. The global group LeoVegas Mobile Gaming Group offers games on Casino, Live Casino, Bingo and Sport. The parent company LeoVegas AB (publ.) is located in Sweden and its operations are mainly located in Malta. The company’s shares are listed on Nasdaq Stockholm. www.leovegasgroup.com

The number of shares outstanding was 14,040,810 as of 31 March 2020. Cash and cash equivalents at the end of the period amounted to kSEK 16,502   Significant events 1 January – 31 March 2021  The United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) issued a Notice of Allowance for Redsense’s patent application “A device for monitoring hose connectors and body fluid leakage”. Member of the board Klas Arildsson was appointed CEO for the new wound care subsidiary. Redsense signed new distributor agreement with Regional Health Care Group in Australia, covering the distribution of the Redsense Alarm system to the markets of Australia and New Zealand. Redsense received positive feedback from the Swedish Tax Agency on the Lex Asea-distribution of the subsidiary Odinwell AB. Redsense postponed the Annual General Meeting from 4 May to 12 May 2021 due to formalities surrounding the proposed distribution of the subsidiary Odinwell AB.   Significant events after the period An extraordinary general meeting on 19 April 2021 resolved, in accordance with the Board´s proposal, to distribute the wholly-owned subsidiary Odinwell AB to the shareholders of the company. Redsense became aware that one of the Company's shareholders, Discover Capital GmbH(registered in the Company's share register as Axxion S.A), had acquired 250,000 shares in Redsense and thus reached above the level of 5 percent of the total number of registered shares and votes in the Company. The Board changed the record date for distribution of the subsidiary Odinwell AB, as authorized by the general meeting, to 10 May 2021. Comments from our CEO   Wound-care spin-off well underway as we focus on repeat orders and strategy As we envisaged, the first quarter of 2021 would in many respects repeat the fourth quarter of 2020; the outcome was similar, and our overall analysis of the trend remains valid. Between the increased mortality among dialysis patients, the repurposing of healthcare resources, and the forced postponement of training, the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic have practically put new sales on hold from the third quarter last year onwards, and the sales we are seeing since mostly comprise repeat orders from previously established customers. Thus, total sales continue to disappoint –for the same reasons – and we saw a loss of MSEK -1.0 for the period. Net sales of MSEK 1.4 compare with MSEK 2.1 in Q3 and MSEK 1.9 in Q4. We expect sales to continue to suffer due to the pandemic for the first half of the year, until the ongoing vaccination programs normalize the situation. We particularly follow the vaccination progress in the US, our most important market, where more than a quarter of the population is now fully vaccinated. The US health protection agency CDC has designated dialysis patients as a highly prioritized group, both because of their frailty and their frequent healthcare interactions, and is working alongside dialysis providers to distribute vaccines across dialysis clinics. Strategic oversight and Odinwell distribution While the full scope of regular operations is pending, more effort has been allocated to digitalization and strategy work. During the first quarter, defining the path forward for the wound care segment has been top of the agenda, and we are seeing the vision materialize. The business area is now contained in the subsidiary Odinwell, and the general meeting has resolved to distribute it to the shareholders for subsequent public listing. The distribution will take place in May, and we are confident that the development of the business and the promising technology will see the best possible prospects in an independent entity. Our move to digitalized training was born of necessity, but is proving both effective and popular. We find that we can get the message across straightforwardly using video and Teams meetings, and our customers enjoy and often prefer the virtual setting. We have also embarked on a more in-depth sustainability effort to shed light on the social, economic and environmental consequences of our activities. As part of this work, a voluntary sustainability report has been prepared. Patents, markets and development projects From the first day of the quarter, home dialysis in the US has been supported by the Medicare reimbursements under the new and mandatory ETC Model, initially covering 30 percent of the country. Home modalities are gaining ground, as illustrated by the major dialysis provider DaVita's recently announced goal of 25 percent of patients dialyzing at home by 2025, approximately double the present figure – and this strengthens our market position. During the quarter, a new exclusive distributor agreement was also signed with RHCG in Australia – an important milestone, as it opens up the Oceanian market. In the region, care services are far off for many patients, so home treatment would offer attractive advantages. While we expect the deviation from normalcy to mark Q2 as well, we must not forget what the normalcy we are awaiting entails for Redsense: we had an excellent first half of 2020, reaching profitability and new peak sales in Q1 and Q2 alike. It is that strong momentum and trend of performance we are waiting to take up again. In the meanwhile, we have continued to improve our business organization and preparedness, and we have accumulated potential quarter by quarter. We remain confident that we will be able to give effect to that potential and execute on our strategy to resume strong and stable growth as soon as COVID-19 ceases todominate the healthcareagenda.

The Australian TGA approves key label updates to Buvidal® for treatment of opioid dependence

Lund, Sweden — 3 May 2021 — Camurus AB (NASDAQ STO: CAMX) today announced that the Australian regulatory agency, the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA), has approved key label updates to Buvidal[®] Weekly and Buvidal[®] Monthly (buprenorphine) modified-release solutions for injection. The approval includes: · A new higher Buvidal Monthly 160 mg dose · Direct initiation onto Buvidal Weekly, removing the requirement to be stabilised on sublingual buprenorphine prior to commencing treatment with Buvidal[® ] · Changing the contraindications in pregnancy and lactation to precautions In 2020 over 53,000 Australians received treatment for their opioid dependence, which represents a 4.7% increase on the previous year. This was the largest increase in treatment delivery in the past decade and has been attributed to the introduction of long-acting injectable buprenorphine treatment which has increased treatment access and capacity.[1] “This welcome approval by the TGA provides additional opportunities to individualize treatment with Buvidal according to patients’ medical needs”, says Fredrik Tiberg, PhD, President & CEO. “Aligned with the EU label, Australian patients can now be directly initiated directly onto Buvidal Weekly, allowing a rapid transfer to long-acting therapy and avoiding the need for daily dosing.” Camurus will now initiate the process for reimbursement for the 160 mg dose through the Pharmaceutical Benefits Advisory Committee process. For full Australian prescribing information of Buvidal Weekly and Buvidal Monthly, see https://apps.medicines.org.au/files/capbuviw.pdf and https://apps.medicines.org.au/files/capbuvim.pdf.[2] For more informationFredrik Tiberg, President & CEOTel. +46 (0)46 286 46 92fredrik.tiberg@camurus.com Fredrik Joabsson, Chief Business Development OfficerTel. +46 (0)70 776 17 37ir@camurus.com  CamurusCamurus is a Swedish science-led biopharmaceutical company committed to developing and commercialising innovative and differentiated medicines for the treatment of severe and chronic conditions.

BEAT Diabetes Foundation launches #Imovefordiabetes initiative

The BEAT Diabetes Foundation, a pan-Nordic organisation responding to the global diabetes challenge, has launched the #Imovefordiabetes initiative. Throughout May, the initiative will bring together thousands of people across the Nordic region in a unique exercise challenge, with the aim of increasing awareness of all types of diabetes and promoting an active lifestyle. Participants in #Imovefordiabetes will register their daily exercise – from jogging and gym workouts to any kind of sport – on www.beatdiabetes.se, which will then convert these activities into a kilometre equivalent. The goal is to reach a combined total of 7,665 kilometres in just one month, a distance corresponding to the length of the Nordic coastline. The BEAT Diabetes Foundation is supported by Nordic Entertainment Group (NENT Group), the Nordic region’s leading streaming company; Abbott, a global leader in diabetes care; and Boehringer Ingelheim AB, a research-driven biopharmaceutical company. Peter Jihde, BEAT Diabetes Foundation Board Member: “Movement is the world’s greatest medicine. It’s free and helps everyone. Enjoy it!” Andreas Almroth, Diabetes Care, Abbott, Nordics General Manager: “At Abbott, we believe people with diabetes should have the freedom to be able to enjoy a vigorous, active life.

Sobi and Hellenic Institute for the Study of Sepsis: anakinra improved overall clinical outcomes by 64% in hospitalised patients with COVID-19 pneumonia

Swedish Orphan Biovitrum AB (publ) (Sobi™) (STO:SOBI) and the Hellenic Institute for the Study of Sepsis today announced positive top line results from the Investigator-sponsored SAVE-MORE study, which assessed the effect of anakinra in moderate to severe COVID-19 pneumonia patients. Early and targeted use of anakinra in addition to current standard of care in hospitalised patients with poor prognosis prevented either death or progression to severe respiratory failure, whilst increasing the number of patients who were discharged from hospital with no evidence of COVID-19 infection. SAVE-MORE is a large, randomised controlled trial in over 600 hospitalised patients that specifically identifies those at risk of severe respiratory failure by the measurement of elevated suPAR (soluble urokinase plasminogen activator receptor), a plasma biomarker that reflects immune activation and has been previously associated with poor prognosis in a number of conditions. The study is sponsored by the Hellenic Institute for the Study of Sepsis (HISS) in Greece and led by its President and Chairman, Professor Evangelos J. Giamarellos-Bourboulis. Giamarellos-Bourboulis is Professor of Internal Medicine and Infectious Diseases at the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, President of the European Shock Society and Chairman of the European Sepsis Alliance. Sobi intends to discuss these results with regulatory authorities to evaluate the possibility of approval. Analysis of the primary end point, the comparative 11-point WHO Clinical Progression ordinal Scale (CPS)[[[i]]], at day 28 demonstrated significant improvement in patients receiving standard-of-care treatment plus anakinra vs patients receiving standard-of-care plus placebo (Odds Ratio 0.36, p<0.001). There were reductions in the number of patients who died or who progressed to severe respiratory failure, as well as an increase in the number of patients who were discharged from hospital with no evidence of COVID-19 infection. These changes were apparent at day 14 (Odds Ratio 0.59, p= 0.001). “This is the first study to specifically evaluate an at-risk patient population before admission to intensive care unit (ICU). The results provide a significant step forward in the search for additional treatment options to prevent progression to a more critical state,” said Professor Giamarellos-Bourboulis. “My thanks go to the many patients and clinicians who have contributed across Italy and Greece.” “We are pleased that anakinra demonstrated a significant benefit on top of standard of care across a wide range of clinical outcomes” said Guido Oelkers, CEO of Sobi. “I would like to congratulate Professor Giamarellos-Bourboulis and his collaborators for conducting such impressive work under challenging conditions in such a short period of time.” “It is clear that there is still a considerable unmet medical need for COVID-19 despite recent advances in treatment,” said Ravi Rao, Head of Research & Development and Chief Medical Officer at Sobi. “These important data come at a critical time and we plan to continue our ongoing dialogue with EMA in collaboration with Professor Giamarellos-Bourboulis.” About SAVE-MORE SAVE-MORE (NCT04680949 ); suPAR-Guided Anakinra Treatment for Management of Severe Respiratory Failure by COVID-19) is a pivotal, confirmatory, phase III randomized controlled trial (RCT). The trial aims to evaluate the efficacy and safety of early start of anakinra guided by suPAR in patients with LRTI by SARS-CoV-2 in improving the clinical state of COVID-19 over 28 days, as measured by the ordinal scale of the 11-point World Health Organization (WHO) clinical progression scale (CPS). Anakinra was administered at a dose of 100mg/day SC for up to 10 days. Of 1,060 patients screened, 606 patients were randomised across 40 sites in Greece and Italy. SAVE-MORE is an investigator-sponsored study conducted independently by Professor Giamarellos-Bourboulis, with the Hellenic Institute for the Study of Sepsis being the regulatory sponsor. Sobi has supported the study with study drug and funding. About SAVEIn the SAVE study (NCT04357366 ), patients with lower respiratory tract infection with severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) at high risk for progression to serious respiratory failure were detected using the suPAR biomarker. Early treatment began with anakinra 100 mg/day sc for up to 10 days in the effort to prevent progression in serious respiratory failure. The study is open label, single arm and will include a total of 1,000 patients. 130 patients were included in a preliminary analysis. The analysis of the SAVE study at Day 14 showed that early treatment with anakinra as guided by the suPAR biomarker significantly decreased the incidence of severe respiratory failure in COVID-19 patients with pneumonia compared to a matched control cohort[ii]. The SAVE study is an investigator sponsored study conducted independently by Professor Giamarellos-Bourboulis, with the Hellenic Institute for the Study of Sepsis being the regulatory sponsor[iii]. Sobi has supported the study with study drug and funding.   About Kineret® (anakinra)Kineret® is a interleukin-1 receptor antagonist that is indicated in the US for reduction in signs and symptoms and slowing the progression of structural damage in moderately to severely active rheumatoid arthritis, in patients 18 years of age or older who have failed one or more disease modifying antirheumatic drugs (DMARDs), for the treatment of neonatal-onset multisystem inflammatory disease (NOMID, a form of cryopyrin-associated periodic syndromes (CAPS)), and for the treatment of Deficiency of Interleukin-1 Receptor Antagonist (DIRA).

SynAct Pharma expands AP1189 BEGIN study in Rheumatoid Arthritis UK Version

Topline data from part 1 of the BEGIN study with AP1189 in early rheumatoid arthristis (RA) demonstrated a 66-74% treatment effect for the 50mg and 100mg dose groups respectively (Part 1 primary endpoint attainment of: placebo - 44%, 50mg - 67% and 100mg – 75%, previously reported in November 2020). Statistical power calculations based upon this data indicate that an additional 15-20 patients would provide approximately 90% power to reach statistical significance in the trial.  SynAct anticipates that that these additional patients will be recruited, and topline data will be available by end of Q3 2021.  “We designed the BEGIN study as a proof of concept study to look for activity of AP1189 in early RA patients with severe disease activity.  Based upon the data from the Data Safety Monitoring Board (DSMB) assessment of Part 1 of the study we anticipate that a relatively small increase in the number of patients in the study would give us the ability to demonstrate statistical significance in the trial” said Dr. Thomas Jonassen, CSO of SynAct Pharma.  “While increasing the study size will delay the topline readout, we believe that the ability to demonstrate significance in this trial is well worth the extra time.  Despite the ongoing pandemic recruitment is going well and we are excited about making this change.” Reporting of the key data is planned to take place in Q3 of this year and the company also plans to submit the study results for presentation at the American College of Rheumatology´s annual meeting in San Francisco in November 2021.  This timing is of course dependent upon external conditions such as the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic but is based upon current recruitment rates and the anticipated performance of additional study sites as well as the reopening of study sites closed due to the pandemic. This information is such information that SynAct Pharma AB is obliged to publish in accordance with the EU Market Abuse Regulation.

Patent to safely combine MDD and IVDD functionality into one unit is granted in Brazil

Brighter AB [publ], today announced that Brighter's patent for a safety mechanism when combining injection functionality which is regulated under MDD ("Medical Device Directive") and diagnostic technology which is regulated under IVDD ("In-Vitro Diagnostics Directive") into one unit is being granted in Brazil. The function means that the display of a drug delivery device (e.g. Actiste) is switched off while the user sets the dose, to make the user look at the dose setting and not at the display, which increases patient safety. The patent is an extension of Brighter's main patent and strengthens its protection for combination solutions and the collection of unique treatment data. The patent has already been granted in the US and Europe. “The International Diabetes Federation estimates almost 17 million adults in Brazil have diabetes.

Valio to spin-off Valio Oddlygood® business operations – the aim is to accelerate international growth

“People are increasingly interested in plant-based products, and changing global consumer trends are behind this. We see a lot of opportunities for Valio in the strongly growing market for plant-based products in Finland and abroad. Oddlygood Global Ltd is a launch that aligns with our new strategy aiming to expand Valio’s international business. We will now pursue this growth increasingly stronger with Oddlygood Global Ltd and international partners,” says Valio’s Tuomas Salusjärvi, ‎Executive Vice President, Growth Businesses and R&D. Oddlygood Global is seeking one or more partners who can bring distribution and sales networks as well as resources to accelerate international growth in various markets. Oddlygood Global will be lead by CEO Niko Vuorenmaa, previously SVP, Valio Food business unit. Reetta Tikanmäki, previously Valio’s Category Manager, is appointed Chief Operational Officer. Petteri Leskinen, previously Valio’s SVP, Business Development, will head finance as Chief Financial Officer. A total of 6 individuals forming the business line will transfer to the company. Strong expertise as a competitive advantage Valio brought plant-based snacks and beverages to the market in 2018 under the Valio Oddlygood® brand, and the product portfolio has since expanded to the plant-based cheese alternative Oddlygood® Veggie products. Valio Oddlygood® products are currently exported to Sweden, the Baltic countries, Russia, and the United States, among others. Sales of Valio Oddlygood® products doubled from 2019 to 2020, and the goal is to further grow sales more forcefully. “Our strengths include our comprehensive experience with food sector business operations and, together with Valio, high-quality product development and production know-how going back 116 years, ultramodern production technology, and premium raw materials like Finnish oats. Valio Oddlygood® products already have a strong foothold in Finland and Sweden. Growth with the support of a partnership network offers us a faster track than organic growth to markets where we don’t yet have our own sales and distribution network,” Niko Vuorenmaa says. “Valio has world-class research and development expertise. In addition to milk products, we are able to apply this expertise broadly to many other raw ingredients. Spinning of Valio Oddlygood® business is one of the new operational models that we use to pursue more extensive commercial utilization of our expertise, and international growth,” says Valio’s CEO Annikka Hurme. Valio’s research and development activities rank high on a global scale. Valio’s patent portfolio is extensive and the ability to innovate covers much more than just traditional milk processing activities. Valio utilizes its R&D capabilities full-scale to its whole portfolio. Valio has successfully capitalized on its deep understanding of the properties and interplay of different proteins, fats, carbohydrates and minerals to develop superior milk and vegetable based products.

Keliber Receives Additional Funding for Developing a Sustainable Battery Value Chain

The support granted by Business Finland for the years 2022-2023 covers half of the EUR 1.1 million budget that Keliber will use to develop mining activities. The project focuses in particular on reducing the environmental impact on mine water. “Keliber is developing its future production processes to be as efficient and environmentally friendly as possible. We are investing in extensive research and development work with several different partners. All the support we receive will help us get closer to our goal, which is the responsible production of battery-grade lithium hydroxide and thus mitigating climate change”, says CEO Hannu Hautala. The funding now granted by Business Finland is part of the European Commission's Autumn IPCEI (Important Project of Common European Interest) project. Keliber has previously received EUR 2.6 million in IPCEI support for its lithium project, which is used for developing sustainable production in many ways. IPCEI is a joint European research and innovation project in the field of batteries, in which the EU aims to build a sustainable, innovative and competitive battery ecosystem in Europe. Keliber aims to be the first company in Europe to produce battery-grade lithium hydroxide from its own ore. The company plans to ramp up production in 2024, when demand for lithium is expected to increase as a result of digitalisation and electrification of transportation.

Viking Glory to sail under Finnish flag

Staff recruitment Viking Line is Finland's largest maritime employer, with nearly 2,400 employees. Of the seven vessels in its fleet, five currently sail under the Finnish flag. Recruitment work for the new vessel will begin soon, and recruitment will begin first among staff employed on the company's other vessels. "In these pandemic times, the collaboration between the Finnish authorities and the Finnish  seafarers' organization has worked well. We see great advantages to having the same flag on both vessels serving the Turku–Stockholm route.  Viking Glory will replace the Finnish-flagged Amorella, and since the intention is for the delivery of Viking Glory not to lead to any redundancy measures, it is natural to continue with a Finnish flag. In taking this decision, we rely on there being continuity in Finnish maritime policy, so that our operating conditions are maintained and we are not forced to review our decisions on the vessels' flags," says Jan Hanses, President and CEO of Viking Line. Climate-smart vessel with innovative Nordic design Viking Glory embodies Viking Line's faith in a bright future for travel on the Baltic Sea. Keywords are sustainability, energy efficiency and innovative Nordic design. Viking Glory is the result of a strong collaboration between Finnish and other Nordic partners, who with their expertise and knowledge have contributed to developing environmental technology details and an innovative interior. The focus throughout the project has been on energy optimization and environmentally-adapted solutions. The new Viking Glory is bigger than the environmental pioneer Viking Grace, but is nonetheless expected to use about ten per cent less fuel and thus be one of the world’s most energy-efficient vessels. Facts about Viking Glory: ·To be delivered in late 2021 · Expected placement in service in early 2022 on the Turku–Åland–Stockholm route · Passenger capacity: 2,800 passengers · Cabins: 922   · Crew: around 150 + 150 people · Length: 222.6 metres, gross tonnage: 63,813 tonnes · Cargo capacity: 1,500 metres · Ice class: 1A Super · Fuel: Liquefied natural gas (LNG) · Construction at XSI’s shipyard in China · Partners: Wärtsilä, ABB Marine, Kone, Almaco, Koncept, Climeon, Evac, Projektia, Pointman, Deltamarin and others  For additional information, please contact: Jan Hanses, President and CEO, jan.hanses@vikingline.com, tel. +358 18 27000 Johanna Boijer-Svahnström, Senior Vice President, Corporate Communications johanna.boijer@vikingline.com, tel. +358 18 270 00

First quarter of 2021: All business areas achieve sales and profit growth

· Sales increased to SEK 2,645 million (2,065) · Operating profit (EBITA) rose to SEK 308 million (227) · EBITA margin of 11.6% (11.0) · Profit after tax was SEK 226 million (177) · Diluted earnings per share increased to SEK 8.43 (6.67) · Cash flow after investments amounted to SEK 71 million (–73) “All business areas achieved good performance in the first quarter, with very strong growth in Medical Solutions and Integrated Solutions,” said Nolato President and CEO Christer Wahlquist. “Adjusted for currency and acquisitions, Group sales increased by a considerable 22%, and EBITA exceeded SEK 300 million for the first time in a single quarter.” “This is once again a testament to our close customer relationships and our strong position as a global strategic partner for a raft of leading companies,” said Christer Wahlquist. Medical Solutions sales for the quarter totaled SEK 1,006 million (642), corresponding to organic growth of a notable 17%. Operating profit (EBITA) rose by a remarkable 39% to SEK 121 million (87) and the EBITA margin was 12.0% (13.6). “Growth was good in most areas, particularly in diagnostics, for which demand has increased partly because of the pandemic,” noted Christer Wahlquist. “The quarter also included a larger proportion of billing for development work and production equipment, which was around SEK 70 million higher than normal. The surgery segment continued to be negatively affected by the pandemic, particularly in the US business, but it showed an improvement towards the end of the quarter.” “The strong growth in Medical Solutions has led us to recently take decisions to further expand our production capacity. In addition to the expansions we have already started in Switzerland, Hungary and Sweden, we will also be expanding the existing plants in Poland and the US.” Integrated Solutions sales totaled SEK 1,045 million (854), corresponding to organic growth of an impressive 40%. Operating profit (EBITA) rose to SEK 125 million (111) and the EBITA margin was 12.0% (13.0). “Sales were fueled by strong growth in Vaporiser Heating Products (VHP) and EMC,” said Christer Wahlquist. “In line with our previous assessment, VHP volumes ramped up in the quarter, while EMC benefited from both the 5G roll-out and our initiatives within Automotive. We expect VHP volumes to continue growing and sees sales for this business area increasing by around 15% in the second quarter compared with the first quarter of the year.” Industrial Solutions sales totaled SEK 595 million (570), corresponding to organic growth of 1%. Operating profit (EBITA) rose by a remarkable 40% to SEK 66 million (47) and the EBITA margin was a strong 11.1% (8.2). “There was a slightly negative impact from a components shortage in the automotive industry and effects of the pandemic in some areas,” added Christer Wahlquist. “However, our efficiency improvements have generated the desired effect, which is reflected by the sharp increase in earnings and the strong EBITA margin.” ––––––For further information, please contact:Christer Wahlquist, President and CEO, +46 (0)705 804848Per-Ola Holmström, CFO, +46 (0)705 763340, per-ola.holmstrom@nolato.com Nolato is a Swedish group with operations in Europe, Asia and North America.

LNG Will Play Key Role in Industry’s Decarbonization Ambitions, Suggests ABS Survey

(HOUSTON) While nearly 40 percent of shipowners have still not implemented a decarbonization strategy despite impending regulations, there is resounding confidence among industry leaders in LNG’s potential to help reach regulatory goals in the coming decades. These are key messages from the panel of industry leaders and a survey of more than 400 attendees at a webinar exploring decarbonization research recently published by ABS in the report Setting the Course to Low Carbon Shipping: View of the Value Chain. The third publication in the ABS Low Carbon Shipping series builds from prior issues which have identified LNG’s importance among the various alternative fuel options, and looks into current ship designs, in many cases, starting a transition to alternative fuels with LNG. “It’s clear the industry needs LNG as a transitional fuel to get us to 2030, it could also support the transition to zero-carbon and carbon-neutral fuels that are required to get us to 2050 such as Hydrogen. Owners of internationally trading ships are facing increasingly complex investment decisions as they try to navigate the most efficient course to the low-carbon future,” said Christopher J. Wiernicki, ABS Chairman, President and CEO. As part of its award-winning decarbonization programs, ABS has simplified three fuel pathways (light gas, heavy gas and bio/synthetic) to help aid owners' decision-making. “LNG remains the clear choice today because of its sheer scalability, growing availability and high technological readiness among low-carbon and low-emission fuels, where Hydrogen and Ammonia appear to be emerging as significant fuel types for tomorrow,” added Wiernicki. The survey indicated the industry has solid confidence in LNG’s potential, with almost nine out of ten respondents agreeing that it has a key role to play in reaching IMO 2050. Among six fuel types, LNG landed the clear majority of the votes as having the most potential for meeting IMO 2050 decarbonization goals. Of the respondents confirming they had not yet put in place a fleetwide decarbonization strategy, 70 percent reported that they had developed a clear understanding of their fleet’s environmental performance in relation to industry peers. Key takeaways included: · The short-term IMO measures, EEXI and CII, create a challenging landscape for many vessels within the global fleet. · Life-cycle analysis clearly identifies the need for green fuel production in order to have meaningful GHG emissions reduction from low- and zero-carbon fuels. · The required scale up of technology for green fuel production is significant (by an order of magnitude) before low- and carbon-neutral fuels can be widely adopted by the global fleet. · The adoption of such fuels and the overall decarbonization of the marine sector will be enhanced by the global economy’s efforts to address the impact of climate change. · Understanding global supply chains is critical to plan future fleet composition and renewal strategies. “Although we are fuel and technology agnostic, ABS focuses on working across the board to help owners not only reach their decarbonization and sustainability targets but hit them successfully, while maintaining a laser focus on safety,” said Wiernicki.

Aker Solutions ASA: First-Quarter Results 2021

1Q 2021 Financial Highlights(excl. special items) · Revenue NOK 6.5 billion · EBITDA NOK 427 million  · EBITDA margin 6.6% (4.7% excl. the Nordsee Ost settlement) · Earnings per share NOK 0.07 · Net cash position NOK 794 million · Order intake NOK 9.4 billion (1.5x book-to-bill) · Order backlog NOK 41 billion "Our earnings and order intake for the quarter increased versus the same period last year and sequentially. We continued to increase our orderbook by securing several important new contracts in the quarter. An important development is that we continue to see increased order intake from energy transition related work, in line with our strategic ambitions. In the quarter, this counted for about 35 percent of the new contracts. As we move forward, the strong backlog for all our segments is an important foundation for our growth ambitions," said Kjetel Digre, chief executive officer of Aker Solutions. "We will maintain our leading market position for delivery of complete oil and gas projects. In parallel, we are rapidly growing our business for renewable energies and low-carbon solutions for oil and gas. Our high front-end and tendering activity, a strong position in active markets, combined with our leading capabilities, makes us well positioned to continue to capitalize on interesting opportunities ahead," said Digre. Key Financials Aker Solutions reported first quarter revenue of NOK 6.5 billion. The EBITDA was NOK 427 million excl. special items, an increase versus the same period last year and sequentially. The earnings per share was NOK 0.07. The company’s financial position remained solid with a net cash position of NOK 794 million and a liquidity buffer of NOK 8.5 billion at the end of the quarter. During the first quarter, Aker Solutions received the final ruling from an arbitration tribunal in Germany concerning the legacy project Nordsee Ost. The ruling entitled Aker Solutions to receive a recoverable cash amount of NOK 698 million, and this amount was received at the end of the quarter and recognized in the company accounts. The recoverable cash amount covered the receivable on the balance sheet, and in addition contributed by NOK 147 million of positive effect on interest income and NOK 125 million of positive effect on EBITDA, in the profit and loss statement. Order Intake The order intake in the first quarter was strong at NOK 9.4 billion, equaling 1.5 times book-to-bill. This was a growth of 19 percent compared to the same period last year and 39 percent increase sequentially. Main awards in the quarter included Troll West electrification for Equinor, Åsgard B topside EPCI modification for Equinor, Eldfisk North subsea production system for ConocoPhillips, Empire Wind FEED for Equinor and BP, Mero 3 topside engineering and procurement for MISC, Agogo subsea umbilicals for ENI and Barossa subsea umbilicals for ConocoPhillips. This brought the backlog to a healthy NOK 41 billion, a growth of 22 percent from the same period last year. Operations and Developments Operations in the first quarter continued to be impacted by the restrictions imposed to manage COVID-19, in particular related to the mobilization of personnel in and out of Norway. Still, the ongoing projects have progressed based on a strong focus on mitigation of the virus risks, close cooperation with health authorities, strong dedication from employees, as well as continuous dialogue with customers to find practical solutions. The company continues to experience high activity-levels related to front-end work for upcoming projects, supporting the growth ambitions moving forward. In Brazil, manufacturing of the subsea trees for Aker BP’s Ærfugl project were completed successfully during the quarter - on time and below budget. In China, several umbilicals for the Lingshui project were delivered during the quarter. In Norway, for Equinor’s Hywind Tampen project, Aker Solutions’ yard at Stord finalized the first phase of the construction of 11 concrete hulls for the wind turbines. At the yard in Verdal, the EPC phase for the Johan Sverdrup Phase 2 jacket to Equinor was completed when the large jacket was skidded on to the transportation barge. In parallel, the planned fast-track progress for the Hod unmanned wellhead platform to Aker BP is on track for delivery later this year.  In the quarter, Aker Solutions signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Doosan Babcock to jointly deliver complete projects for low-carbon solutions and renewable energy in the UK. The partnership is currently pursuing identified opportunities related to upcoming onshore plants for hydrogen production and facilities for carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS).  The company also announced that it will reduce the environmental footprint from its own operations, targeting 50 percent reduction in CO2 emissions by 2030, compared to 2019 level (total scope 1 and scope 2 emissions). Outlook The outlook for project sanctioning for 2021 and 2022 remains positive in the company’s main markets, both in traditional oil and gas and related to energy transition. The temporary tax incentives on the Norwegian continental shelf is expected to trigger sanctioning of more than 30 new projects by end of 2022. Aker Solutions is experiencing high demand for its differentiating front-end capabilities. Several ongoing early-phase studies are expected to lead to front-end engineering and design (FEED) work in the second half of 2021. Tendering activity is high, and Aker Solutions is currently bidding for contracts totaling about NOK 78 billion. About 30 percent of this is related to Energy Transition within areas such as offshore wind, carbon capture, hydrogen, and low-carbon solutions for oil and gas such as subsea gas compression and electrification. Looking ahead, while some near-term restrictions related to the COVID-19 pandemic remain, Aker Solutions sees increased market activity. The outlook for 2021 remains unchanged; the company sees overall revenue somewhat lower than last year's level, with underlying EBITDA seen up from last year to around the 5.5 percent to 6.0 percent level.

The Company has been in contact with all of the major shareholders and has overall received a positive feedback. Shareholders representing approximately 18 percent of the total number of shares and votes have expressed that they intend to support the Board of Directors’ proposal, including Nordea Fonder, Handelsbanken Fonder, Carnegie Fonder and Länsförsäkringar Fonder. · In connection with the acquisition, the Board of Directors has updated the financial targets and the dividend policy.

Per Wallentin, CEO of Knowit, commented the acquistion: “For several years, we have seen a development towards more complex customer needs that require our expertise through the entire value chain, from product development to completely new customer interfaces and processes. Cybercom will complement our offering with more technology-oriented services and a sustainability offering at the forefront. We are strengthening our market position in areas that are developing rapidly – cyber security, cloud services and digital solutions to society's sustainability challenges.” "Through this acquisition, we become a very attractive partner for both customers and employees, and establish a platform for a continued strong growth journey." A Nordic powerhouse for for digital solutions with a sustainable impactDemand for digitalisation is strong in the long term in both the private and public sectors, both as an effect of changing customer behavior but also as a result of the development of new technology and innovations that provide the opportunity to develop smarter and more sustainable solutions. Knowit and Cybercom complement each other well, and will through the merger become an attractive partner with a strong employer brand and with a common vision to drive and accelerate the digital transformation towards tomorrow's sustainable business models. Knowit is already today well positioned in digital transformation with broad expertise in system development (Knowit Solutions), web and e-commerce (Knowit Experience) and strategy consulting (Knowit Insight). With Cybercom's specialization in connectivity, IoT, cloud-based solutions, and the growing area of cyber and society security, the offer is strengthened primarily to customers in the tech, industrial and telecom sectors. A new business area, Knowit Connectivity, is formed and Knowit grows from approximately 2,600 to more than 3,800 employees. In addition to increased ability to take on larger and more complex projects, the acquisition also opens up for opportunities for growth through access to new markets. Knowit has a strong position in Norway while Cybercom is well-positioned in Finland, where the business together with Knowit will increase by 250 employees to a total of around 400. The integration of Knowits and Cybercom's operations will primarily generate new business opportunities, but will also drive annual cost synergies of approximately SEK 45 million. Overall, the new group is expected to create a platform for continued profitable growth, and Knowit expects the acquisition to be accretive to earnings per share during 2022. The two organizations will be brought together under the Knowit brand. In connection with the transaction, Annika Nordlander, today Head of Cybercom Sweden, will become Head of the newly formed business area Knowit Connectivity. Bo Strömqvist, today Head of Sales at Cybercom, will also join Knowit's Group Management with responsibility for strategic customer relations, an area that will be particularly important in connection with the integration of Cybercom and Knowit's growth plans. Niklas Flyborg, CEO of Cybercom, will remain as an advisor to Group Management for a transitional period. “It has been a fantastic journey in a market under rapid development, and Cybercom is now ready to take the next step. We have been engaged in sustainability for over a decade, and I am convinced that Knowit is the right partner, since we share the same driving force, to help customers change their business in a sustainable direction.” said Niklas Flyborg, CEO of Cybercom. “Cybercom has a strong position with customers in the industrial and telecom sectors. Knowit and Cybercom complement each other well and together we can continue to grow in all markets. Both companies share a vision of contributing to a sustainable society which we believe is very attractive for our competent and ambitious employees, our customers and society at large”, said Annika Nordlander, Head of Knowit Connectivity. The investment companies Formica Capital and JCE Group are today the largest owners of Cybercom and will, after the completion of the transaction, be the largest owners in Knowit. “Cybercom is a fantastic company with competent employees and we are convinced that this transaction is strategically sound for all parties - the operations complement each other well and constitute a strong platform for continued acquisition-based growth. We see our ownership in Knowit as a long-term investment in one of the strongest and most fast-growing digitalisation companies in the Nordics, with excellent opportunities to leverage on Cybercom's sustainability position”, said Olof Cato, CEO of Formica Capital and Chairman of Cybercom.

The Board will also propose the Extraordinary General Meeting to authorize the Board to resolve on a cash issue of shares, with or without preferential rights for the Company's shareholders, corresponding to proceeds up to a maximum of SEK 500 million.

SIGNIFICANT EVENTS IN THE QUARTER AND AFTER THE END OF THE QUARTER · Revenues increased 42.6% from Q1 2020 driven by strong development in all segments and the acquisition of BtoBet, a leading sportsbook provider, in September 2020. · Organic growth of 35.6% from Q1 2020. · B2B revenues grew 46.2% from Q1 2020 with organic growth of 36.6%. · BtoBet’s sportsbook platform licensed in the UK and first sportsbook deal signed with UK-based operator. · Significantly strengthened presence in the US through game deals with Rush Street Interactive (RSI) in New Jersey and US based platform provider GAN. · Pariplay granted an Interim iGaming Supplier License for the state of West Virginia. · Announced a review of the B2C segment to assist Aspire Global to focus on its growing B2B ambitions and its market-leading technology, while also accelerating the B2C’s growth. · During March 2021, the company’s major shareholders funded the company with a €10.3 million bridge loan to enable the redemption of the senior secured bond due 6 April 2021. KEY FIGURES€ million, unless other stated FIRST QUARTER FULL YEAR 2021 2020 2020Revenues 48.1 33.7 161.9EBITDA 8.6 5.2 27.1EBITDA margin, % 17.8 15.5 16.7EBIT 6.5 3.9 20.8EBIT margin, % 13.6 11.6 12.9EPS, basic and diluted, € 0.13 0.05 0.28Operating cash flow 5.3 1.8 27.7  CEO COMMENTS “ASPIRE GLOBAL IS CONSISTENTLY DEMONSTRATING ITS ABILITY TO CREATE VALUE” Aspire Global reports yet another record quarter with strong growth of 42.6% and robust profitability well above our financial target. This consistent performance demonstrates Aspire Global’s ability to execute its growth strategy and create value. All segments reported strong development in the quarter, and the Group made significant progress, especially in the US and the UK with new deals and the receipt of new licenses.  Revenues increased by 42.6% to €48.1 million with organic growth of 35.6%. Growth was particularly strong in the UK and Ireland in both the casino and sports verticals. The solid growth in the quarter is particularly impressive, given that the first quarter is historically the weakest of the year. EBITDA increased by 64.2% to €8.6 million with an EBITDA margin of 17.8%, well above our financial target of 16%. This improved profitability is driven by the revenue growth across all segments as well as strict cost control. It is also satisfying to see that both BtoBet and Pariplay, acquired in 2020 and 2019 respectively, contribute significantly to Aspire Global’s profitability. STRENGTHENED PRESENCE IN THE USEstablishing a strong footprint and building our brands in the fast-growing US market are key objectives for us this year, and we have already made significant progress on this front. In January, Pariplay, the leading game studio and game aggregator, was granted an Interim iGaming Supplier License for the state of West Virginia. Shortly after, Pariplay’s games went live in New Jersey with Rush Street Interactive, a market leader in online casino and sports betting in the US.In April we took yet another key step in the US by signing a striking deal with the platform provider GAN. The partnership will see Pariplay expand its footprint through GAN’s platform, which is available to operators in three states – New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Michigan. By partnering with GAN, a well-established supplier with leading operator partners, we will get Pariplay’s games in front of a significant audience across numerous states. The US iGaming market is growing at an impressive rate with more states currently considering legalising online gaming. Our objective is to be at forefront of these developments. Aspire Global has already filed applications for accessibility in Pennsylvania and Michigan, with the objective to file in all accessible states. SIGNIFICANT PROGRESS IN THE UKThe Sports market represents an important growth area for us. Until the acquisition of BtoBet, a leading sportsbook provider, sports constituted a minor part of Aspire Global’s revenues, representing only 7.6% of revenues in Q1 2020. One year later, sports now represents 15.2% of revenues.BtoBet has established a strong position in Latin America and Africa. In the quarter, BtoBet further expanded its global footprint by being awarded certification in the UK. The UK is the biggest European iGaming market, and this license marks an important strategic step in expanding our Sports vertical to new markets. Just a few days after obtaining the license, BtoBet announced a strategic partnership with the UK-based operator Small Screen Casinos, covering the UK, Ireland and Ghana. The agreement underlines BtoBet’s ability to configure its technology to meet the needs of any operator. Pariplay also strengthened its position in the UK in the quarter by going live with Betfred, the largest independent betting brand in the UK. BTOBET SPORTSBOOK NOW INTEGRATEDThe acquisition of BtoBet and its proprietary sportsbook has created an offering that covers the main elements of the B2B iGaming value chain and gives Aspire Global control of the IP in the full value chain. We have recently accomplished the integration of BtoBet’s sportsbook to Aspire Core’s cutting-edge technology platform. This, in combination with Pariplay’s leading game offering, provides Aspire Global with crucial competitive advantages. Aspire Global is a powerhouse for iGaming operators and is ready to compete for any deal, anywhere, at any time. In addition to the huge growth opportunities we see by entering new regulated markets and gaining new customers, there are substantial opportunities to expand our business with existing partners. We have just kicked off the first sports related projects where partner brands will improve their offering by replacing their existing sports solution with the BtoBet sportsbook. This shift of partner brands to the BtoBet proprietary platform will positively impact our revenues and margins throughout 2021. We are proud to add Grupo Televisa, the biggest media house in Mexico, as a partner via our local operator/partner. Grupo Televisa, which has a market cap of over USD 7 billion, migrated recently to our gaming platform and sports solution from its previous provider. We also support Grupo Televisa with new casino tabs and our knowledge about the region. CORE PLATFORM ENHANCEMENTSA key strategic area for Aspire Global is the continuous improvement of our offering and enhancements of our core technology platform. The recently launched Aspire Engage – the most advanced CRM tool in the market – along with additional payments methods and KYC processes – have been very well received in the market. The strong development for our Pay N Play solution, launched in December 2020, has also continued in this quarter. These new features and improvements are important contributions to Aspire Global’s robust performance. STRONG B2C PERFORMANCEThe B2C segment continued its strong growth from Q4 2020. As announced in March 2021, we have initiated a review of the role of the B2C segment within the Group structure. We are pleased with the growth recorded by the B2C segment, but we think a review will assist us to better assess our options to further accelerate growth. Such a move could help improve Aspire Global’s overall margins and EBITDA and potentially support us in accelerating new B2B initiatives and enter fresh markets. The review is still ongoing and we will provide more information about the outcome in a timely manner. OUTLOOKAspire Global consistently demonstrates its ability to execute its growth strategy and create value. In addition to continuous improvement of the offering, geographic expansion and good organic growth, we are of course especially happy with the outcome of our M&A activities. Pariplay has doubled its revenues since Q1 2020 and reports an EBITDA margin of almost 30%. BtoBet has also developed favourably since the acquisition with revenue growth of 51.0% compared to Q1 2020 and reports similar EBITDA margins to Pariplay. We see tremendous growth opportunities for Aspire Global. With our complete iGaming offering, we will target both new customers and broaden our presence with existing partners. We have proven our ability to gain tier 1 operators as customers with names such as Rush Street Interactive (RSI), Betfair, William Hill and 888casino. The strategy to grow in regulated markets is proven efficient, and we will continue to license our offering in more regulated markets and enter new markets. We remain confident in our ability to deliver on our 2021 financial targets and are truly excited by Aspire Global’s future prospects.

In the first quarter of 2021, Vestas generated revenue of EUR 1,962m – a decrease of 12 percent compared to the year-earlier period. EBIT before special items decreased by EUR 17m to EUR (71)m. This resulted in an EBIT margin before special items of (3.6) percent, compared to (2.4) percent in the first quarter of 2020. Free cash flow* amounted to EUR (898)m compared to EUR (920)m in the first quarter of 2020. The quarterly intake of firm and unconditional wind turbine orders amounted to 2,016 MW. The value of the wind turbine order backlog was EUR 19.4bn as at 31 March 2021.  In addition to the wind turbine order backlog, at the end of March 2021, Vestas had service agreements with expected contractual future revenue of EUR 25.3bn. Thus, the value of the combined backlog of wind turbine orders and service agreements stood at EUR 44.7bn – an increase of EUR 10.6bn compared to the year-earlier period.

Group President & CEO Henrik Andersen said: “Following a strong end to 2020, continued impact from COVID-19 and lower activity levels affected Vestas’ results for the first quarter of 2021. Our order backlog reached an all-time high of EUR 45bn, and as a reflection of the continued positive price development, our underlying profitability improved in the quarter. Logistical challenges and supply chain bottlenecks were, however, amplified by COVID-19 restrictions in strategic markets and extraordinary events, and as a result our EBIT margin decreased year-over-year. Our service backlog and revenue increased significantly in the first quarter, and we started welcoming around 3,000 new colleagues in our offshore business as well as partnering with customers on upcoming offshore projects. At the same time, we continued the build-out of our global development business to capture a larger share of the value chain and accelerate the deployment of renewables. Although we have started the year a bit slower than expected, we remain positive we will catch up throughout the rest of the year by maintaining a strong focus on executing our 2021 goals and mid-term strategic priorities.”  Key highlights All-time high order backlogCombined order backlog of EUR 45bn despite lower order intake in Q1 2021.

DanCann Pharma A/S have signed a definitive distribution agreement with Tetra Bio-Pharma Inc. for the exclusive distribution of Reduvo™ Adversa® and Qixleef™ in Scandinavia and Germany

Pursuant to registration with the European Medicines Agency (EMA), DanCann Pharma will handle the exclusive sales and distribution in the Nordics and Germany for the products, Reduvo™ Adversa® and Qixleef™. In addition, the agreement covers Tetra’s medical cannabis product Enjouca™. Reduvo™ Adversa® (dronabinol using a novel mucoadhesive-tablet route of administration) are indicated for the treatment of CINV patients (Chemotherapy-Induced Nausea and Vomiting) and for AIDS-related anorexia associated with weight loss. Qixleef™ and Enjouca™ are indicated for the treatment of uncontrolled pain with advanced cancer patients as well as for breakthrough pain. Reduvo™ Adversa® technology will allow DanCann to launch a largely improved dronabinol version in the Nordic countries & Germany. The clinical benefits are numerous, including illimited first-pass metabolism leading to an improved bioavailability and consequently to reduced gastro-intestinal exposure and side-effects. The dosage regimen is likely to become BID as opposed to QID. This new technology signifies important intellectual property. Qixleef™ is a botanical cannabinoid-derived medicine, planned to become the first prescription product to be dispensed through pharmacies and prescribed by healthcare professionals. Qixleef™ is inhaled through a Health Canada approved class 2 medical device. It is well characterized and will benefit from data protection, once approved by the EMA. The indications for this product are expected to be for advanced cancer pain and breakthrough pain. Last week Tetra published a press release, stating that Qixleef™ has been shipped to the USA for the initiation of the REBORN1 study. Tetra has completed the manufacturing of Qixleef™ and has received the cannabis export permit from Health Canada. REBORN1 will investigate cannabis as an alternative to morphine sulfate immediate release in the management of breakthrough pain. Lastly, Enjouca™ is a medical cannabis therapeutic option (a non-registered) which will help European patients to manage their pain.    “We have very high expectations for the collaboration with Tetra Bio-Pharma. They have a unique portfolio within the pain management and CINV segments, and we look forward to introducing these lines to our markets. We have mutual expectations for the sales to commence during the first half of 2022. DanCann estimates reaching peak sales of DKK 340 - 410 million by 2028, depending on the development of the markets,” says DanCann Pharma’s CCO, John Morell Frellsen. The agreement encompasses a sum of upfront and milestone payments to Tetra of up to DKK 6.25 million, and expected royalties to Tetra reaching up to DKK 62.5 million on DanCann Pharma’s peak sales for Reduvo™ Adversa®, Qixleef™ and Enjouca™ by 2028. DanCann Pharma’s CEO, Jeppe Krog Rasmussen, has the following statement: “The industry – and hereby also the patients – have had some challenges and restrictions regarding the Danish Pilot Program with medical cannabis (non-registered). With this agreement we are now entering into a completely new path around approved pharmaceuticals with cannabinoid-derived medicines, where these restrictions are assumed to be minimal. This provides us with a portfolio of products, where the risk is widely spread and a much more transparent business plan and future. With this agreement, we have proven our business model, and the new initiatives we have put on the agenda, and then executed. With our agreement with Tetra and our strategy around IP-based cannabinoid drugs, we are looking into a market in Germany, which today is worth over DKK +1.25 billion, where approx. 80% of these are prescribed to the area for pain treatment and pain patients. A market that is strongly characterized by medical cannabis, and incredibly latent around actual cannabinoid drugs - like the rest of Europe - where today we only have one other player in the market with EMA-approved cannabinoid drugs, which to that is not in direct competition with the drugs covered by our distribution agreement with Tetra. In other words: a huge opportunity for DanCann Pharma. This is another major step in DanCann Pharma’s vision of improving the health and quality of life for patients with unmet health challenges. By bringing novel products based on cannabinoid derived medicines to the market, we will be able to unleash the true clinical potential of cannabis. A huge journey awaits us, and we look forward to making a difference for the many patients who need us.” According to Guy Chamberland, CEO at Tetra Bio-Pharma: "I am glad that we have been able to sign this definitive agreement with DanCann Pharma. Both organizations strongly believe that cannabinoid-derived medicines will help to improve the quality of life of patients suffering from pain and chemotherapy induced nausea and vomiting (CINV). We look forward to work with DanCann Pharma in the Nordic Countries and Germany, both organizations set the bar very high when comes to deliver impactful therapeutic value to patients.” About DanCann Pharma A/S DanCann Pharma A/S (SS: DANCAN) was founded in 2018 and is a Danish biopharmaceutical Company powered by cannabinoids.

Works on Sea Wall Nears Completion for the Landmark EWP-EDF One Wave Energy project

The works so far have included clearing the top cement layer of the relevant sections of the sea wall, followed by adding two layers of steel rebars for reinforcement and finally, in several days (in accordance with weather conditions), the final step will be completed, which is the creation of a new cement layer, which shall provide the necessary support for the installation of the floaters. In parallel, the company is in an advanced production process of the first set of floaters. Upon production completion, the company will gradually commence installation of floaters, supporting structures and hydraulic pipes onto the new cement layers. All works are performed by a local subcontractor, during days of calm sea, to enable safe work on the sea wall. The reinforcement works have been planned and are being supervised by Alex Gleizer, a civil engineer (license number 101162) with 25 years of experience executing projects for the Israeli Railway Company, the Israeli Air Force, and the Israeli Electric Company, and with presence from a dedicated safety engineer. “We had some execution delays due to unfavorable weather conditions, as well as external renovation works that have been performed in the Port of Jaffa. However, now I am glad to announce that we are back on track and are looking forward to finalizing the floaters production and installation of the whole array, which will enable us to send clean electricity from sea waves to the Israeli national electrical grid for the very first time” said Inna Braverman, Founder and CEO of Eco Wave Power. The EWP-EDF One wave energy project will include 10 floaters, connected to one conversion unit.  Due to the onshore nature of the Eco Wave Power technology, the works on the sea wall and floaters installation will be straightforward and will not involve any works performed from the seaside. The EWP-EDF One conversion unit will be located on land, just like a regular power station, enabling an easy access for operation and maintenance.  This highlights the significant advantages of the EWP onshore technology, in comparison with offshore solutions. The EWP-EDF one project is executed in collaboration with EDF Renewables IL and co-funding from the Israeli Energy Ministry.   About EWPG Holding AB (SE0012569663) EWPG Holding AB (publ) (“Eco Wave Power”) is a leading onshore wave energy technology company that developed a patented, smart and cost-efficient technology for turning ocean and sea waves into green electricity.

Commercial and logistics operations in the UK have increased their share of products sold from the Group’s Wood Protection and Joinery product areas.JoineryIn the Joinery product area, strong demand for garden products and outdoor furniture has been a positive factor. The trends for windows and doors are good, where we are regarded as a premium supplier in a quality-conscious market. The same applies to houses and modular houses.Sawn WoodStrong demand characterizes this product area, and our two sawmills in the Baltics are working at full capacity. As a consequence of the strong market, the prices for sawn products have increased. At present, we have good access to raw materials.Other (Energy & Logistics)The pellet operation is the area that is not living up to expectations, primarily owing to two relatively mild winters in a row that have resulted in a build-up of stock with price pressure as a consequence. There is a trend toward new areas of application such as stall bedding in parallel with initiatives in e-commerce. The port business in the UK is developing in accordance with plans. from sawmill company to ownership companyOne key event during the period took place in early March, when we communicated a new strategic orientation and new financial targets that reflect the Group’s growth and profitability ambitions.

Hence, we envision several expansion possibilities beyond melanoma in other indications, with other novel combinations, and for our next generation pipeline products.” PresentationWe invite to a live webcast today at 10.00 CET.

Excluding Germany, which has been affected by new restrictions related to the upcoming regulation, revenue increased by 19%. Our growth has been driven mainly by our loyal customer base, which reached a new record level during the period. We have maintained a high pace of investment, and despite this we achieved adjusted EBITDA growth of 22%, driven by our scalability and good cost control. ACQUISITION OF EXPEKT – increased FOCUS ON SPORTS BETTINGDuring the first quarter we acquired the well-known sports betting brand Expekt. The acquisition gives us one more leg to grow on and complements the Group’s brand portfolio and product offering in a strategically good way. We are looking forward to Expekt once again becoming a leading sports betting brand in Sweden and thereafter also in other markets. The acquisition is expected to be completed in May in connection with our migration of the brand to our own technical platform. The timing of the acquisition is perfect as we are now facing two years filled with major sports events, and we plan to launch Expekt well in advance of the UEFA European Football Championship, which starts in June. MarKETSDuring the first quarter we saw the full effect of the changes taking place in the German market. Operators in the market are acting differently with respect to implementing the new restrictions, which unfortunately has led to a skewed competitive situation. The assessment is that up to 70%-80% of the German market for casino has temporarily been shifted over to operators that have chosen to not adapt to the coming market regulation. Our hope is that this will soon be sorted out by the German authorities, which is a prerequisite for the licence system’s success, with a high level of channelisation and consumer protection. Germany generated approximately 6% of the Group’s total revenue during the first quarter, compared with 15% a quarter earlier. Despite this development in Germany we delivered good growth at the Group level, which reflects our strong performance in many other key markets, including Italy, Canada and Spain. Our business is more diversified than ever before, and growth at the Group level is proof that our data-driven way of working and allocating marketing investments is effective. I also want to highlight Sweden, where the strength of the LeoVegas brand and our product breadth is appreciated by our customers. Our Swedish customer base set a new record during the quarter, and in March we grew on a yearly basis for the first time since the temporary Covid-19 restrictions were implemented in July 2020. leoventuresThe first quarter was an intensive period for our investment vehicle LeoVentures. Among other things we invested in SharedPlay, a company that makes it possible for players to share their gaming experiences with others through the industry’s first multiplayer solution. For a long time we have created successful,  exclusive games with the help of external providers. We are now taking the next step by starting our own game studio – Blue Guru Games. This venture will give us full control and greater flexibility in developing new games, a unique offering to our players, and also a new revenue stream for the Group. COMMENTS ON the SECOND QUARTERRevenue for the month of April amounted to EUR 32.7 m (37.5), corresponding to negative growth of 13%. Excluding Germany, growth in April was positive at 4%. Finally I want to urge you to be on the lookout for the new launch of Expekt in Sweden towards the end of May – you won’t be disappointed!

Pexip delivers strong growth and early market traction on new technology innovation

Q1 2021 Pexip's subscription base measured in Annual Recurring Revenue (ARR) reached USD 87.2 million in Q1 2021, up from USD 56.7 million in Q1 2020, representing an increase of 54%. The growth was driven by several key customer wins including: New South Wales Health in Australia (USD 2.4 million over three years), to help power virtual healthcare visits; the UK Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (more than USD 1 million over three years), to enable connectivity between their video conferencing equipment and Microsoft Teams; and Honeywell, the American Fortune 500 conglomerate (undisclosed contract value), to provide the company’s video rooms with features such as Microsoft Teams interoperability and One Touch Join functionality. At the same time, the percent of retained revenue from existing customers, was 104% year -on-year, including churn of 9% year-on-year. "I am pleased with the performance of the team in Q1, delivering continued strong growth. As a large portion of renewals were signed in the previous quarter, it is good to note our strong ability to attract new customers this quarter. This clearly demonstrates the attractiveness of our solutions for enterprise and public sector customers with high requirements. While most businesses have still not returned to the office in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic, the new normal of hybrid working is right around the corner. This will require flexible and secure videoconferencing of high quality, which we are particularly well positioned to deliver", said Pexip CEO, Odd Sverre Østlie, and continued: “We have recently seen a solid development in our sales pipeline, and are on track to reach our ARR target of USD 300 million by 2024. We are executing forcefully on our previously communicated plan for long-term growth, and are investing in growing our team when it comes to sales and product development." During Q1 Pexip has made important advances when it comes to technology and products. The launch of a native integration with Epic, the world’s largest Electronic Health Record System provider, marked the latest addition to the Pexip Health private, secure and brandable solutions for virtual healthcare meetings and consultations. In Q1, Pexip signed the first Pexip Private Cloud customer, a public sector organization, and has developed a promising pipeline of prospective customers. In March, Pexip announced a collaboration with NVIDIA, a leading company in graphics processing units (GPU) for the gaming and professional markets, to explore how advanced technologies such as conversational artificial intelligence (AI) and deep learning can create a more immersive and engaging video meeting experience for everyone, regardless of device. “The potential of combining NVIDIA’s advanced AI computing features with Pexip’s unique architecture will allow us to reimagine virtual meetings for richer, more human interactions. Pexip transcodes live media in real time during meetings to give each and every participant the best possible audio and video experience on whichever device they’re using. We look forward to exploring the further extension and application of our server-side transcoding technology with NVIDIA Maxine” says Giles Chamberlin, CTO and co-founder, Pexip. Revenue in Q1 was NOK 179.7 million, up 20% from NOK 150.1 million in Q1 2020, driven by higher revenues from Pexip as-a-Service to new customers. Cost of sale in Q1 was NOK 15.0 million, reflecting a gross margin of 92%, up from NOK 4.9 million in Q1 2020 due to higher hosting and network cost related to higher usage of Pexip as-a-Service, as well as a shift towards cloud compute from investing in own hardware. Salary and personnel expenses amounted to NOK 175.6 million in the quarter (98% of revenue), up from NOK 72.6 million (48% of revenue). The increase is mainly due to high growth in employees over the last twelve months, in line with Pexip’s growth strategy. Reported EBITDA in Q1 was negative NOK 53.1 million, reflecting a negative 30% margin, down from NOK 35.8 million in Q1 2020. The development in the EBITDA margin is as expected, as the company invests into growth initiatives where the expected increase in revenue will trail the increase in operating expenses due to ramp-up time, according to strategy. Analyst consensus estimates Every quarter ahead of the earnings announcement, starting with Q1 2021, Pexip will collect earnings estimates from the equity analysts currently covering the company. The consensus estimates and the methodology used in preparation of the consensus estimates will be published on the company’s IR webpages here: https://investor.pexip.com/consensus .

Stena Line and Irish Ferries Call for Restoration of the Common Travel Area Into Ireland

With virus levels now low in Ireland and the UK, and vaccination programmes progressing in both countries, Irish Ferries and Stena Line are calling on Ministers and industry stakeholders to urgently look at restoring the long-standing CTA agreement for Irish and UK citizens, and permit unrestricted travel between Britain and the island of Ireland. Paul Grant, Trade Director for the Irish Sea, at Stena Line said: “COVID-19 infections are now at low levels and vaccination levels are increasing significantly in both countries. In the UK for example 66% of adults have now received their first dose and 30% have had both, so there is now a real need to focus on solving some of the economic impacts of the pandemic, and an obvious starting point are the hard-hit tourist, hospitality and travel sectors.  With the restoring of travel between the islands of Ireland and Britain, we can start to rebuild these sectors locally in advance of the full resumption of international travel, which may take more time to agree and deliver.” Andrew Sheen, Managing Director for Irish Ferries commented: “The ferry industry has played a key role in helping to keep vital food and medical supply lines open during the height of the pandemic.  With the current UK infection rate of 48 cases per 100,000 population comparable to the lowest in Europe, we need to acknowledge the shared land border between the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland and eliminate the discrepancies and loopholes on travel restrictions on the island. Irish Ferries and Stena Line welcome the Tánaiste’s recent comments on the possibility of restoring the CTA in advance of the full resumption of international travel and would urge the Irish Government to prioritise its implementation.” The issue with the CTA has arisen due to differing approaches by the Irish and UK governments. The Irish Government requires passengers from Britain to have a negative PCR test and they must also quarantine for 14 days on arrival. The UK Government has never imposed requirements for testing or quarantine for people travelling from anywhere on the island of Ireland to Britain. The Northern Ireland Assembly also has never imposed testing or quarantine on anyone travelling from Britain. Both companies are also stressing that they need time to prepare for the resumption of travel. Urgent clarity is needed regarding dates so that the ferry companies can ensure they are ready from an operational perspective. …Ends

Scania adapts organisation to meet new technology and business models – changes also in the Executive Board

The changes consist of merging Research and Development, Production and Logistics and Purchasing together into one strong organisation – Industrial Operations. This enables an extended focus on productivity and flow, and to be better prepared for the challenges in a transformative environment. In the commercial organisation, the present sales and service network will merge with the company’s customer financing operations to respond to a higher level of integration in future customer solutions. This organisation is called Commercial Operations.  A new unit has also been established; Mobility Solutions. This is a merger of Autonomous Solutions and LOTS Group, a wholly-owned subsidiary. Both are operations that already work with a more service based business model and other customers than the traditional buyers of heavy vehicles and services. The new organisation comes into effect as from 7 May 2021. “We take a giant leap on our transformation journey to adapt Scania to the future, and continue to drive the shift towards a sustainable transport system. We have done ground breaking changes before, such as our modularisation and flow optimisation. Now it’s time for yet another such step. We will focus even more on flexibility and a fast pace, but we also add a value stream-based flow mindset and an even greater focus on business development,” says Christian Levin, Scania President and CEO.  “We continue our close dialogue with management to ensure the interest of our members and welcome that impacted employees now will be involved to form their new way of working”, says employee representatives Lisa Lorentzon (Akademikerföreningen), Mari Carlquist (Unionen), Michael Lyngsie (IF Metall) and Mikael Svalefors (Ledarna). In conjunction with the new organisation, some changes will also apply to the Executive Board: •    Anders Williamsson will be the Head of Scania’s industrial organisation – Industrial Operations. Williamsson is currently Executive Vice President and Head of Purchasing. •    Mats Gunnarsson becomes Head of Scania’s commercial business, Commercial Operations. Gunnarsson’s previous position was Executive Regional Director Americas, Commercial Operations. •    Martin Lewerth is the Head of the new department Mobility Solutions. Lewerth started his new position on 1 April, 2021 and was previously the manager for LOTS Group. All new roles also carry the title Executive Vice President. The Executive Board also consists of the following members who also carry the title Executive Vice President: •    Alexander Vlaskamp, Head of Sales and Marketing. •    Helle Bay, Head of People and Culture – the new name of the unit previously called Human Resources. •    Johan Haeggman, Chief Financial Officer. “With different backgrounds and a value based leadership, this team and our new structure will enable our big Scania family to continue to be a strong partner to our customers,” Levin concludes.
