    Entry-level electric saloon is on display in UK dealerships; RHD deliveries scheduled for mid-2019

    Tesla has opened the order books for European customers of its Model 3 saloon, revealing previously-unconfirmed pricing and range details. 

    UK cars aren't expected until the middle of next year when right-hand drive production commences, but prices published in Spain, Sweden, Netherlands and France suggest the entry-level EV will be available from £50,000, falling to £46,500 after taking into consideration the UK government incentive for zero-emission vehicles.

    The Model 3 has also been shown in UK dealerships for the first time, with demonstration models on display in the company's London Park Royal and Manchester Stockport dealerships. 

    The Model 3 is capable of covering 338 miles on a single charge, according to new WLTP testing methods. This figure applies to the four-wheel drive Long Range variant, which available with 50kWh or 75kWh batteries.

    *Tesla Model 3 review​*

    Currently, only the standard and performance Long Range options are available in Europe, with subsequent cheaper variants expected to be available from around £30,000 in the UK. That will pitch the Model 3 against the likes of the Audi A4, BMW 3 Series, Jaguar XE and Mercedes-Benz C-Class in terms of pricing and size.

    Model 3 production hit 5000 cars a week in the last week of June 2018, just meeting Tesla's self-set output deadline for that number of cars to be made in a week by the end of the second quarter of 2018.

    It required the construction of a temporary 'tent' outside the firm's California factory, to hold another production line and increase output.

    It's estimated that around 500,000 orders have been received for the Model 3, which costs from $35,000 (£26,500) in the US before incentives. 

    The 50kWh model hits 0-60mph in 5.6sec and has a top speed of 130mph. The Long Range model can do 0-60mph in 5.1sec and has a 140mph top speed, costing from $44,000 in the US. 

    The Model 3 is more than 400kg lighter than the Model S, so it could be quicker than the Performance version of that car.

    Model 3 owners will not get free access to the Tesla Supercharger high-speed charging system, with the company planning to charge for electricity as demand grows and it requires more investment to build up the network of chargers.

    However, if Tesla hits its planned production of 500,000 cars a year - something it has faced an uphill struggle to achieve until the recent 5000-car milestone - analysts predict that it will outsell BMW, Mercedes-Benz and Lexus in the US.

    *Prospective Tesla Model 3 owners tell us why they're buying one*

    Tesla launched its Semi lorry and a new Roadster last year, following an injection of $1 billion (around £800 million) worth of investment into the company - something Musk has previously said would help the company meet high demand for the Model 3.

    Tesla has raised capital to help production and ease the financial risk associated with the production run. This has led to a rise in its share price and has been further boosted by reports of its future model plans, including the Model Y compact SUV, according to New York financiers.

    However, some analysts still question Tesla's ability to ramp up production to meet its demand. The brand is yet to make a profit, although the latest reports suggest it could do so later this year.

    Dublin, Dec. 05, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "The Global Ethanolamines Market" report has been added to *ResearchAndMarkets.com's* offering.

    This report presents a strategic analysis of the global ethanolamines market and a forecast for its development in the medium term. It provides a comprehensive overview of the market, its dynamics, structure, characteristics, main players, growth and demand drivers, etc.
    According to recently conducted research about the global ethanolamines market, as an overall, it is projected to reach approximately 2,459 thousand tons by the end of 2023, increasing at a CAGR of around 3% per year in the period 2017-2023.

    The report focuses on both product and regional breakdown, offering a larger perspective on the market dynamics. Although ethanolamines are predominantly used as chemical absorbents for gas treatment, the analysis considers the application of ethanolamines across various industries.

    In particular, the second largest share of ethanolamines consumption is as absorbents for gas treatment, which accounted for around 27% of the total in volume terms. Meanwhile, the chemical's application for gas separation has been growing with the highest rate of about 3.89% per year.

    Regionally, the largest global ethanolamines market was North America, which accounted for about 30% of the total in volume terms. In comparison, Africa was the smallest global ethanolamines market during the analyzed period and is expected to remain such in the medium term.

    Diethanolamine is one of the key raw materials in the production of glyphosate, which contributes to the high quality of the herbicide by enhancing its effect in agrochemical applications. Furthermore, as glyphosate is the largest consumed variety of herbicides, its growing demand in recent years has considerably fueled the global ethanolamines market.

    Furthermore, ethanolamines' application in cosmetics and personal care products is differently regulated by the authorities in different regions. Although the European Commission banned the use of diethanolamine in cosmetics, in the USA it can be found in products such as soaps, hair conditioners, hair dyes, shampoos and many more.

    Most applications of ethanolamines can be considered mature. MEA consumption for triazines has a promising outlook, on a contrary to its consumption in wood preservatives, which has declined slightly in the last few years.

    Geographically, owing to the strong need for cement, gas treatment, pharmaceuticals, agricultural and personal care products, consumption for ethanolamines in recent years was highest in the North American region. Europe has retracted the use of glyphosate, resulting in dramatically less consumption of glyphosate and diethanolamine.*Key Topics Covered*

    *Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) - Disease Understanding and Treatment Algorithm*

    Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a developmental disorder that affects communication and behavior. Although autism can be diagnosed at any age, it is said to be a developmental disorder because symptoms generally appear in the first two years of life. ASD refers to a group of neurodevelopmental conditions defined by impairment in three areas: social interaction, communication or use of verbal and non-verbal language, and a stereotyped, restricted or repetitive pattern of behavior, interests and activities.

    Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is used to be called as Pervasive Developmental Disorder (PDD). PDD included five types or categories: Autistic Disorder, Asperger's Disorder, Childhood Disintegrative Disorder, Rett's Syndrome, and pervasive developmental Disorder-Not Otherwise Specified (PDD-NOS).

    The Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) market report gives the thorough understanding of the ASD by including details such as disease definition, classification, Etiology, Pathophysiology, Signs and Symptoms and diagnostic trends. It also provides treatment algorithms and treatment guidelines for Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) in the US, Europe, and Japan.

    The disease epidemiology covered in the report provides historical as well as forecasted epidemiology [segmented as Total Diagnosed Prevalent Cases of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), Gender Specific Diagnosed Prevalent Cases of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and Subtype-Specific Diagnosed Prevalent Cases of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)] scenario of ASD in the 7MM covering United States, EU5 countries (Germany, Spain, Italy, France and United Kingdom), and Japan from 2016-2027.

    As per the study conducted by Guifeng Xu et al., titled as Prevalence of Autism Spectrum Disorder among US Children and Adolescents, 2014-2016, the estimated prevalence for Autism Spectrum Disorder was 2.47% among US children and adolescents in 2014-2016, with no statistically significant increase over the 3 years. The observed prevalence was higher than estimates in previous years from the ADDM, although differences in study design and participant characteristics may partly explain the prevalence differences.

    The total 7MM prevalent cases of Autism Spectrum Disorder in 2016 were 6,545,050 out of which the highest prevalent cases of this disease were seen in the United States, which accounted for approximately 57% of the total prevalent cases. The EU5 countries accounted for 1,715,717 cases as a whole in 2016. Japan had 1,094,393 cases in 2016, which accounted for approximately 17% of the total 7MM prevalent cases of Autism Spectrum Disorder. The total prevalent cases of ASD in 7MM is calculated by adding the prevalent cases of the individual country.

    According to this research, total prevalent population of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) in the 7 major markets is estimated approximately 6,545,050 cases in 2016 and it is expected to be change during the forecasted period (2016-2027).

    This research estimates that the prevalent population of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) in 7MM is expected to change for the study period 2016-2027.

    In the forecast report for 2019, the Investment Research Team at UBS, expect the greenback to retain its strength in the near term, but they think the dollar is likely to depreciate over time as policy normalization gets underway in Europe. 

    *Key Quotes: *

    “The USD remains overvalued thanks to marked positive short-term interest rate differentials as the Federal Reserve continues to raise interest rates. This state of affairs, along with the dispute over Italy’s budget, is likely  to prompt further near-term gains for the USD relative to the EUR.”

    “Looking further ahead, we expect the Fed to near the end of its rate-hiking cycle in 2019, while the European Central Bank (ECB) will only be starting to normalize interest rates, which will cause the differentials to shrink and the dollar’s advantage to recede, in our view.”

    “The support for US growth from fiscal stimulus will also wane next year, and the US twin fiscal and current account deficits are likely to start to weigh on the dollar.”

    “We forecast EURUSD at 1.15 and 1.20 over six and 12 months. A key risk to our view is the US launching a large infrastructure program, which could boost growth and inflation. The dollar could also remain stronger relative to the euro if US-China trade frictions intensify in 2019, Eurozone data slows, or the ECB appoints a dovish successor to current president Mario Draghi.”

    International Banker recently held its annual Banking Awards to acknowledge the top banking institutions and individuals in Western and Eastern Europe. Handelsbanken’s CEO Anders Bouvin was honored with the prestigious Banking CEO of the Year Western Europe 2018 Award.

    LONDON (PRWEB) December 05, 2018

    International Banker offers a global view of banking and finance. Each year through the Banking Awards, it recognizes the leading banking institutions and individuals that have set the bar for industry excellence. The 2018 Banking Awards acknowledge the organizations and individuals within the banking and financial industries in Western and Eastern Europe that drive global economic commerce, create capital and opportunities for economic growth within their regions, set the benchmarks for technological advancement and customer service, while maintaining high levels of regulatory compliance and corporate governance. The standout institutions working within retail, commercial, investment and private banking are recognized with these awards. In addition, special awards are given to outstanding CEOs in each region.

    Honored with the award for Banking CEO of the Year Western Europe 2018 to acknowledge and celebrate his leadership in banking, Anders Bouvin, CEO of Sweden’s Handelsbanken, has achieved a prominent position on the International Banker Western and Eastern Europe Awards 2018 list.

    Handelsbanken—headquartered in Stockholm, Sweden, but with more than 800 branches in its six home markets—makes it very clear that customer satisfaction is its guiding principle. Handelsbanken has a long history. Established in 1871, it has undergone many changes since its inception, yet it has kept hold of the fundamental importance of maintaining a local presence, as other banks have closed branches and replaced them with automation. For both its personal and corporate customers, Handelsbanken’s promise to meet their, “requirements for financial services—with the highest possible level of satisfaction” remains as true today as it was a century ago.

    At the head of it all is President and Group CEO Anders Bouvin, who is determined to actualize the bank’s business strategy. “We aim to be more profitable than our competitors—in terms of RoE—by having more satisfied customers and lower costs.” This strategy is definitely working, with return on equity rising to 13.8 percent in the January–June 2018 period from 12.6 percent in the same period of last year. 2017 marked the 46th consecutive year that the bank produced higher profitability than the average of its competitors.

    The judges for the prestigious Banking CEO of the Year Western Europe 2018 Award noted that under Anders Bouvin’s leadership, Handelsbanken has embarked on a digitalization strategy that focuses on the bank’s key strengths and differentiators within the industry. The strategy incorporates and builds on the uniquely decentralized model of the bank by placing a strong emphasis on increasing the quality of personal meetings and the level of advice and service at the branch level. CEO Anders Bouvin has demonstrated his commitment to expansion within all the markets the bank operates. Handelsbanken has increased its number of customer investment-advice meetings held by its Swedish branches by 64 percent year-on-year; this has been accomplished with branch staff who have no sales activity targets or personal sales incentives. But Mr. Bouvin is determined not to force the expansion of the bank. A branch is opened only when a suitable branch manager has been found to head it up. He views that expenditure to increase customer satisfaction as not a cost but an investment, and the responses to customer-satisfaction surveys support this approach. Anders Bouvin’s plan to focus on the fundamentals of increasing customer satisfaction and cost efficiency is a clearly defined and sustainable long-term strategy for Handelsbanken’s growth.

    The judges were also impressed by Handelsbanken’s and Anders Bouvin’s personal commitment to the Global Child Forum and the United Nation’s Agenda 2030’s Sustainable Development Goals—such as sustainable cities and communities, and gender equality.

    · the continuation and ramp up of clinical development for HEMOBLAST^TM Bellows in abdominoplasty surgery, knee surgery and spinal surgery.

    To achieve its 2022 target of a 15% market share in the United States and the main European countries, the Company will need additional financing.
     
    · ongoing efforts to deploy the sales force in the United States and Europe, ramping up efforts devoted to marketing and training practitioners and the Company's ordinary operating activities.*Structure of the Offering*

    *Update of information concerning the company*

    The Company was created in 2005 with the objective of designing and producing implantable, resorbable biomaterials and medical devices derived from biopolymers like collagen. The Group has also developed a new generation of hemostasis products composed of patent-protected biopolymers.

    The development strategy is now focused on (i) HEMOBLAST Bellows, a hemostatic powder (acting to control minimal to moderate bleeding during surgical procedures) equipped with a bellows applicator and (ii) HEMOSNOW^TM, a hemostatic dry powder enabling mechanical or activation for minimal bleeding during surgical procedures. The HEMOBLAST product range can be used in many surgical fields only with the applicator or in conjunction with a 10 cm cannula in most open surgical procedures or with the assistance of a 35 cm laparoscopic cannula in laparoscopy for example.

    HEMOBLAST Bellows obtained CE marking in December 2016. In the United States, following completion of the Premarket Approval (PMA), in December 2017, the Group received FDA marketing approval in the United States for HEMOBLAST Bellows, 7 months in advance of the original plan.

    The product's official commercial launch in Europe and the United States took place in the summer of 2018, with the first sales recorded in July 2018.

    Thanks to the productivity improvement, the doubling of the number of shifts, and the expansion of the capacity of production of HEMOBLAST Bellows subsequent to the capacity freed up by the discontinuation of legacy products, the production site in Saint-Priest is now able to produce 4,000 units of HEMOBLAST Bellows per month. This capacity is anticipated to increase to 7,000 units per month by the first semester of 2019. Delivery of a new 8,700 sqm production facility is now expected in 2021 v. 2020 initially; the Company anticipating this new site to produce up to 500,000 units of HEMOBLAST Bellows per year by end of 2021. In order to achieve the 15% market shares in the United States of America and main European countries in 2022, the Company will need additional financing.*Net working capital*

    Since its creation, the Company has financed its growth by strengthening its equity through successive capital increases, and by obtaining public grants for innovation, the reimbursement of research tax credit receivables and through bank borrowings through bond issues.

    The cash balance was at EUR33.1 million at September 30, 2018 and EUR28.8 million at October 31, 2018. The Company has completed a specific review of its liquidity risk and considers that it is unable to honor the terms for future payments (based on a qualified situation of deficiency as of the September 2019). The working capital deficiency would attain a maximum amount of EUR6.8 million within 12 months, i.e. end of December 2019. The Company however considers the net proceeds of the Offer will be sufficient to meet its obligations and operating cash flow needs during the twelve months. This Offering is the Company's preferred solution for obtaining positive net working capital for the next twelve months.

    The Company will continue to have significant financing requirements in the future. The Company will consider different sources of financing (equity, debt or other non-dilutive solutions) to guarantee the Company's continuity as a going concern after December 2019. Until the end of March 2019, and subject to fulfillment of certain conditions, the Company has an option to raise an additional EUR10 million from Athyrium in connection with the March 2018 bond issue.*Profit-sharing plans adopted before the Company's initial public offering*

    After reviewing the situation of the share price and its consequences for profit-sharing plans set up pursuant to the delegations of authority granted by the shareholders' general meetings of February 19, 2015 and July 17, 2015 (for BSPCE warrants) and June 21 2016 (for stock options), and in light of notably the exercise price of the instruments in question, i.e. 236,413 BSPCE warrants exercisable at a price of EUR16.80 for two new shares and 52,579 stock options exercisable under the same conditions, and the shares limited liquidity, on October 29, 2018 the Board decided, on the recommendations of the nomination and compensation committee, to propose to each beneficiary employed by the Group on October 29, 2018 to substitute a fixed amount of EUR4.20 per dilutive instruments (or EUR2.10 per underlying share) or a total amount of EUR418,198.20, in exchange for waiving their rights to said instruments, it being specified that the beneficiaries are corporate officers who waived theirs rights to these instruments without compensation.

    The offer of substitution was opened to beneficiaries until November 30, 2018, the date on which the beneficiaries had responded favorably. On that basis, the summary of potentially dilutive instruments on the Prospectus date is as follows:
     

    *Nature of the dilutive instruments* *Number of instruments* *Potential new shares*
    BSPCE founders' warrants (Bons de souscription de parts de créateur d'entreprise)
    Stocks options 418,705 418,705
    Warrants 217,320 492,320 *
    Restricted stock units 406,360 406,360
    *Total* 1,042,385 1,317,385 **

     

    * Increase to a maximum of 612,320 new shares, taking into account the 120,000 new shares that could be issued from exercising the BSA warrants attached to the bond subscribed by Athyrium in respect of the second tranche of EUR10 million, not yet issued on this date.

    ** Increase to a maximum of 1,437,385 new shares, taking into account the 120,000 new shares that could be issued from exercising the BSA warrants attached to the bond subscribed by Athyrium Capital Management L.P. in respect of the second tranche of EUR10 million, not yet issued on the date of the Prospectus.*Biom'up USA, Inc.*

    Biom'up USA, Inc. is the US subsidiary of the Company responsible for the distribution of the Group's products in its priority market, the United States. On September 18, 2018 Biom'up USA Inc., appointed Mr. William Spotnitz, also the Group's Chief Medical Officer, as Chief Executive Officer, in replacement of Mr. Etienne Binant, also the Company's Chief Executive Officer (directeur général), now occupying the offices of Chairman of Biom'up USA, Inc. In light of the progress and success of the US subsidiary under Mr. Etienne Binant's management between March 2015 and September 2018, this subsidiary granted him a bonus of a net amount in US dollars equal to EUR490,095.*Availability of the registration document and the interim financial report*

    Detailed information about Biom'up, notably relating to its business, results, outlook and the corresponding risk factors is provided in the Company's registration document for 2017, filed with the AMF on May 28, 2018 (No. R.18-043), and in the interim financial report for the six-month period ended June 30, 2018 which may be consulted along with other regulated information and all press releases of the Company at the Biom'up website (www.biomup.com).*Contacts*

    HEMOBLAST Bellows is a hemostatic product to control bleeding in a broad range of surgical procedures, such as cardiac surgery, general surgery, and orthopedic surgery, etc. Biom'up conducted a successful clinical trial in the United States with 412 patients admitted to cardio-thoracic, abdominal or orthopedic (lower limb) surgeries which met all of its primary and secondary endpoints. Given the compelling preliminary results (93 % effectiveness at 6 minutes, compared with 74 % for the control arm), the Independent Data Monitoring Committee (IDMC) unanimously recommended to stop the study after an interim analysis of the data, which allowed the company to accelerate the submission of its filing for premarket approval (PMA) to regulatory authorities in June 2017.

    After obtaining expedited FDA approval for HEMOBLAST Bellows in December 2017, 7 months ahead of original plan, Biom'up's efforts are focused on industrial and commercial activities and the recruitment of sales and marketing teams in the U.S. to prepare the planned commercial roll-out of our lead product in the United States.

    On July 12, 2018, Biom'up obtained CE Marking for its HEMOBLAST Bellows Laparoscopic Applicator designed to deliver the HEMOBLAST Bellows powder in minimally-invasive procedures. This has opened the way for the Company in a new market segment representing approximately 500,000 surgeries per year in Europe. In addition, on July 2, 2018 the Company filed a PMA supplement to obtain approval for HEMOBLAST Bellows for all laparoscopic surgical procedures in the United States.*About Biom'up*

    Founded in 2005 and based in the Lyon suburb of Saint-Priest (France), Biom'up designs hemostatic products based on patented biopolymers that aim to simplify surgical procedures in numerous specialties (spine, cardiothoracic, general, orthopedic, plastic) and give patients a better quality of life.

    Since its creation, Biom'up has benefited from the support of prominent European investors such as Bpifrance, Innobio, Gimv, Lundbeckfond, Mérieux Participation, SHAM and ACG, as well as all the company's managers, who have invested EUR2 million in equity. Biom'up successfully completed its IPO on Euronext Paris, raising EUR42.5 million in October 2017. This has been followed by a EUR16 million capital increase in February 2018 and a EUR25 million bond financing agreement with Athyrium Opportunities III Acquisition LP, a US fund specializing in innovative companies in the healthcare sector, in March 2018.*Warning*

    · *In European markets, the two standouts, for opposites, were Italy that outperformed due to 'positive' progress on a budget agreement with the EU while for the UK, Brexit continued to create just about enough angst in government concerns to send the FTSE lower that was also weighed by some pretty shocking services data. *
    · *In France, the CAC 40 continues to be troubled by political challenges and public unrest, despite Macron caving in under the pressures and backing down on the gas tax. *

    European markets are still feeling the heat following a switch up in sentient surrounding global growth prospects and global trade relations. At the same time, the political environment is as uncertain as ever, on both mainland Europe and Britain. While there may have been some clarity found today over legalities over Article 50, it still does not bode well for UK politics and the future of the Conservative party.

    *Closing percentage changes for European indexes*

    · UK FTSE 100 -1.44%
    · German DAX -1.19%
    · French CAC -1.36%
    · Italy MIB -0.1%
    · Spain IBEX -0.55%

    Germany stocks were in the doldrums again on Wednesday with the Technology, Insurance and Software sectors weighing on Frankfurt's major index.  The DAX dropped 1.19% with the worst of the index coming from Wirecard AG which dropped 2.67% or by 3.700 points to trade at 134.850 by the end of the session. Infineon Technologies AG NA O.N.fell  2.39% or 0.450 points to end at 18.355 and Fresenius Medical Care KGAA ST dropped 2.18% or 1.600 points to 71.720. Helping to support the index was Heidelbergcement AG O.N. which added 0.46% or 0.260 points to trade at 57.360 and Bayer AG NA also rose 0.43% or by 0.28 points to finish the day at 65.61. RWE AG ST O.N. added 0.41% or 0.080 points to 19.390 by the close.

    *Brexit draws **most** attention*

    The main news came from London on Wednesday. UK multinationals shares were weighed by a strong pound while the FTSE 100 was down 1.1% at 6,943.23 as Brexit angst continues to linger despite some positives have come of recent legal advice which could mean that Brexit may not happen at all. As for shares, housebuilders rallied, with Berkeley, Barratt Developments, Persimmon and Taylor Wimpey the top four performing stocks on the FTSE 100 as the prospect of a second referendum became more real.

    UK P May's the government was defeated on two contempt of Parliament motions for not publishing the full legal advice on the withdrawal agreement. Backbenchers approved an amendment which gives them a greater say if the Brexit proposal is defeated in next week's meaningful vote.

    Should parliament not support any deal before the Article 50 window expires, the chances of leaving without a deal are greatly reduced. It also raises the prospect of the UK not leaving at all should the public vote against it this time around in a second referendum. JPMorgan upped its odds on the possibility of Britain remaining in the EU to 40% from 20% and said it now sees the chances of a no-deal Brexit at 10%, reduced from 20%, and an orderly Brexit at 50% now versus 60% before. Comments from pro-Brexit International Trade Secretary Liam Fox also provided a boost, as he told a parliamentary committee that no Brexit was now a possibility.

    As for the performers, Berkeley Group Holdings (The) (BKG) 3,485.00p 7.89%. Barratt Developments (BDEV) 479.90p 6.46% and Persimmon (PSN) 1,978.46p 6.14%. The non-performers were Ashtead Group (AHT) 1,683.50p -5.21%. Reckitt Benckiser Group (RB.) 6,401.00p -3.32%. Hargreaves Lansdown (HL.) 1,914.00p -3.28%

    *UK Services data shocker*

    Activity in the UK's services sector for November was reported to have softened to its weakest level for more than two years in November. Confidence levels also slumped due to Brexit angst. IHS Markit/CIPS UK services purchasing managers' index dropped from October's reading of 52.2 to 50.4, the lowest since July 2016. A reading below 50 indicates a contraction - A number of services sector companies said Brexit had prompted clients to delay investment decision, and there had been a slowdown in new business growth. There has now been a slowdown in new business growth for three consecutive months. Confidence for the year ahead showed the weakest degree of positive sentiment since July 2016.

    *Technical levels*

    *FTSE:*

    The FTSE is negative on the charts with long bodied candlesticks that point to further downside as the bears remain in control will little in the way coming in from the bulls at this stage of the week, so far. The price is testing the barrier s of the daily Bollinger bands and the prior November lows, which could bring in some support. However, daily RSI has room to go until overbought conditions might encourage a buy-in or paring of shorts on profit taking and the next target is the S1 pivot point located at 6888. A break there opens YTD lows of 6850 and then S2 at 6820 and S3 at 6715. On the flipside, the pivot point is located at 6993 and above the daily high of 6977. 7016 was a prior low with the confluence of the 50-4hr SMA which guards the 21-4hr SMA at 7022. R1 is located at 7061 and the 2018 range 23.6% level is located at 7100. The 38.2% Fibo of 2018's range at 7262 is the primary objective thereafter. 

    *DAX:*

    We have a bearish bias on the charts still with the index consolidating below the gap after yesterday's drop. The index is in the lower end of the Bollinger bands and below the descending 21-D SMA now located at 11344. A break of the recent lows of 11141 leaves scope for a run to the 11007 level as the 19th Nov low. 10860 comes as the 2016 Aug-Nov level as the critical downside target.  Bulls need to get back above the 50-D SMA at 11559 ahead of the 23.6% Fibo target at 11617.

    · Improved lead production and additional time required to optimize production: anticipated non-fulfillment of the provisional financial target for the Group's German perimeter set for December 31^st 2018 due to current production levels and to 2018 backlog
    · New discussions with financial partners to adapt and enlarge the framework of the German sub-group financing to its current cash flow generation and forecasted working capital requirements
    · Cash situation closely monitored and remaining € 4 M from existing financing recently drawn
    · Launch of a 24-month modernization project for the German group's organization and internal processes, aiming at succeeding in turning around sustainably

     

    *Suresnes, December 5^th 2018: *Recylex S.A. (Euronext Paris: FR0000120388 - RX) announces today having started new discussions with all concerned financial partners in order to adapt the framework of the financing obtained by its German perimeter in December 2016 (and amended in September 2018) to its current and forecasted cash flow generation.
    Since the second quarter of 2018, the Group's main lead furnace (BSF) production has experienced an important slow down^1 due to the technical adaptations required for its connection to the new reduction furnace. Improvements have been achieved which resulted in higher lead production in November but the current levels are still sustainably lower than forecasted in December 2016 when the financing was granted. Current financing commitments are no more adapted to the financial performance of the Group's German perimeter. In this context, the Group anticipates its German perimeter will not be able to reach its forecasted financial target at December 31^st 2018. Therefore, the financing framework of the German sub-group must be deeply reviewed.
    Recylex S.A. will keep its investors informed of the development and the outcome of the ongoing discussions.

    *Sebastian Rudow, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Recylex S.A., commented: *

    "Whilst the new reduction furnace has started its operations, the main furnace production has been severely impacted for several months by its technical modifications. Teams are particularly committed to fix this situation and improvements are real but come at a slow pace. We are all doing our best efforts and working on sustainable solutions. However, we must also act responsibly and face this change in our horizon. Our lead segment business model is functioning and would be sustainable with an adapted financing: the current one is not anymore in line with the German perimeter's cash flows which are still lower than forecasted in 2016. In this context, we have started to renegotiate current financing with the target to reach arrangements that will give us the frame to focus not only on improvements of lead production, but also on management and organization. We all at Recylex are committed to this key challenge, in the interest of our employees, our shareholders and our business partners. I am dedicated in this context to develop adapted solutions to enable the Group to face its challenges. In addition, the Group has to modernize its organization and internal processes to succeed in turning around sustainably, we are therefore entering a 24-month internal project in this perspective."

    1. *Update on the lead production situation*

    Since the commissioning of the new lead reduction furnace in June 2018, the Group's lead production has experienced an important slow down^1 and has not yet recovered a satisfactory level. Indeed, since the second quarter of 2018, the availability rate of the main furnace (BSF) has been strongly impacted by the technical adaptations required for its connection to the new reduction furnace. Notably, the operation mode of the main BSF furnace has been modified from "continuous mode" to "batch mode" to be connected with the individual operation mode process of the reduction furnace. This change generated important technical difficulties which had not been fully forecasted during the preparation of the reduction furnace project and its construction phase.

    During the last months, further modifications have been made to the BSF furnace to mend this situation both on the industrial equipment (such as the revision of certain pieces sizing or the change in certain processes) and also on the input mix of materials and its preparation. Moreover, due to the change of process of the smelter, the teams of Weser-Metall GmbH have been reinforced by experts and assisted by independent specialists. In the meantime, local management has been changed notably in the aim of giving teams the means to be more focused on their operations.
    In parallel, with the reduction furnace production phase being successfully started as scheduled, the Group is gaining experience on managing this new equipment with its innovative technology.

    Improvement works and measures are being currently pursued and teams continue their efforts with improvements being recorded since September 2018. More adjustments are planned which will require more time.
    The current production of the two furnaces has been raised from 8,245 tonnes in September 2018 to 9,600 tonnes in October 2018 and 11,500 tonnes in November 2018. The next objective is to increase production above 12,000 tonnes per month and above 13,000 tonnes per month on a long term perspective.
    Yet, the current production levels and the backlog accumulated in 2018 impact the Group's German perimeter's financial situation and consequently the Group's.

    1. *Information on the Group's financial situation*

    In this context, the Group anticipates that its German perimeter will not be able to reach its financial targets at December 31^st 2018, as defined in the financing signed in December 2016 and revised in September 2018^2. Target at December 31^st 2018 applicable to the Recylex's German sub-group was a cumulative EBITDA^3 for the rolling 12-month period, of at least € - 8.1 million (loss) whilst the German sub-group anticipates to reach € -10.1 million.
    Considering the lenders rights under the existing financing agreement, in the event of non-compliance with any financial targets, the lenders could in theory suspend their financing and request immediate repayment of the amounts borrowed, which totaled € 59.6 million, as of October 31^st 2018. Moreover, this situation could generate the activation of the trusteeship arrangement put in place as a condition to the granting of the loan agreement to the German subsidiaries signed on December 29^th 2016^4, which would lead to the deconsolidation of the Group's German perimeter with the Trustees being able to exercise full shareholders' rights of the Group's companies Recylex GmbH, Weser-Metall GmbH and Harz-Metall GmbH. Finally, this breach of fulfilment of obligations by the German companies of their obligations under said loan agreement, would constitute an event of default within the framework of the € 16 million loan^4 contracted by Recylex S.A. with Glencore International AG. In this case, the lender could request the immediate repayment of the fully drawn amount^5.

    Although the Group needs more time to solve its current industrial issues in order to optimize its lead production levels, from a metallurgical perspective, Weser-Metall GmbH smelter's process, with its two furnaces, is operational. Its business model would be sustainable in the future with a financing framework in line with its current and forecasted cash flow generation.
    In this context, the Group has started new discussions with all its financial partners in order to adapt and enlarge the financing framework (granted in December 2016 and amended in September 2018), to its German perimeter's financial performance.

    As already disclosed in its previous press releases, measures have been taken to adjust the Group's working capital requirements to the lower lead production. As a reminder, Weser-Metall GmbH being currently Recylex S.A.'s sole client, its cash flow is highly dependent on that of Weser-Metall GmbH. In this context, the Group's cash situation is tight and is being closely monitored.
    As a reminder, in accordance with the conditions for the granting of the 2016 financing, Glencore International AG gave commitments to the Group's German subsidiaries to cover notably their specific cash requirements (up to maximum € 25 million). Given the forecasted need of cash by the end of December 2018, the Group's German perimeter has drawn the remaining € 4 million on this available financing commitment^4 which is now fully used.

    In this context, the consolidated net debt^6 amounted to € 101.4 million as of October 31^st 2018 compared to € 101.2 million at June 30^th 2018 and the Group's net cash position^7 stood at € -7.1 million as of November 30^th 2018 compared to € - 8.8 million as at June 30^th 2018.

    1. *24-month modernization project for German group organization and internal processes*

    Considering the context described above and willing to anticipate the challenges ahead, the Group has launched a 24-month modernization project for management organization and internal processes in Germany, aiming at succeeding in turning around sustainably.
    The objective is to bring the Group to more modern operations notably in terms of industrial, management and administration efficiencies.

    In order to develop more synergies between the Group's companies, all departments and processes have started to be reinforced.

    1. *Pursuance of the L'Estaque site rehabilitation*

    Recylex S.A. is pursuing the rehabilitation works of its inactive L'Estaque site in Marseille. Remaining works amount to € 8.3 million as of June 30^th 2018 (compared to € 9.9 million as of December 31^st 2017).

    Recylex S.A. does not anticipate any potential future sale of this site before its rehabilitation works are completely finalized.

    1. *Information of Weser-Metall GmbH regarding potential misbehaviour of a Nigerian lead acid battery treatment plant*

    Weser-Metall GmbH has become recently aware of potential misbehaviour, regarding Health, Safety & Environment, of some Nigerian companies.

    Weser-Metall GmbH has only identified one of its suppliers based in the U.K which has sourced lead secondary materials from one of the Nigerian concerned companies. Weser-Metall GmbH had no direct commercial purchases from this Nigerian company and has not been informed by its supplier of any legal infringement or misbehaviour by this company. All deliveries of concerned secondary materials to Weser-Metall GmbH were validated by the environmental authorities.
    Weser-Metall GmbH decided to stop all deliveries of secondary materials from this source and is carrying out further analysis.

    Weser-Metall GmbH produces lead ingots in an environmental sound manner and is certified with ISO 14001, ISO 9001, and ISO 50001 and as a waste management company (Entsorgungsfachbetrieb).
    Weser-Metall GmbH as such contributes to worldwide circular economy in accordance with European standards and the most advanced recycling expertise.
