His laboratory played a major role in developing the first 3 agents approved by FDA specifically to treat the AIDS virus, Retrovir (AZT), Videx (ddI), and HIVID (ddC). After serving as the Director of the NCI from 1989-1995, Dr. Broder served as Senior Vice President, Research and Development and Chief Scientific Officer at IVAX Corporation. He then joined the Celera Corporation, as the Executive Vice President for Medical Affairs and Chief Medical Officer, and helped advance the human genome project, the elucidation of the 3 billion letters of code that make up human DNA.

Azelio and Svea Solar sign MoU for joint projects using energy storage coupled to solar PV

gbafNews28

STOCKHOLM, Jan. 25, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Azelio and Svea Solar have signed a MoU to develop projects using Azelio's long-duration energy storage, TES.POD®, coupled to PV systems. The collaboration will span over at least 3 projects in 2021, 5 projects in 2022, and 10 projects in 2023. A total of 8 MW of installed power and more than 100 MWh in equivalent storage capacity.

Svea Solar is Sweden's largest solar PV installer. In support of expanding its business offerings into the energy storage segment in Sweden in particular and Europe in general, a collaboration is initiated with Azelio, as a developer of long-duration energy storage.

Azelio's storage solution, TES.POD®, stores renewable energy in recycled aluminum. The energy can be dispatched on demand as electricity and heat during the dark hours and at times during the day when direct production is not sufficient.

“I am proud to initiate this collaboration and glad that Svea Solar wants to address the energy storage segment together with Azelio. Our solutions complement each other perfectly, extending the use of renewable energy for all hours of the day”, says Jonas Eklind, CEO of Azelio.  

Svea Solar is leading the power shift towards renewable solar energy in the Nordics. Together with Azelio we will proudly offer a superior long-duration storage solution. This is yet another great step towards sustainable living through innovation for customers across Europe, says Erik Martinson CEO of SVEA Solar”.

Lleida.net sales increased by 20% in 2020

gbafNews28

MADRID, Jan. 25, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Technology services company Lleida.net (BME: LLN) (EPA: ALLLN) (OTCQX: LLEIF) reported 2020 sales of €16.42 million or 20 per cent more than in 2019.

This notable advance in the company's turnover resulted from the boom in its Software as a Service (SaaS) line, which registered an increase of €2.11 million, or 59 per cent, to €5.69 million.

“2020 represented a before and after for the Digital Signature industry and also for Lleida.net. Despite the catastrophic situation caused by COVID-19, the company's performance was the best in its history,” explained Sisco Sapena, CEO and founder of the company.

“For 2021, our strategy is to continue to focus on our three pillars: internationalisation, innovation and intellectual property,” he added.

This growth was also due to the expansion of its international sales, with significant growth in Colombia or South Africa. 

Furthermore, this year, the signing of global agreements, such as those with Emirates Post, and national contracts, such as those with Santander Merchant Services and Indra, were particularly significant. 

In the last quarter of the year alone, sales of the SaaS line grew by 107 per cent compared to the same period of the previous year, to 1.97 million euros.

2020 was a year characterised by the changing and accelerating digital behavioural habits of businesses and users. The company posted EBITDA of EUR 2.57 million, up 17 per cent from EUR 2.19 million in the previous year.

Its annual gross margin was 8.015 million euros, almost one million euros more than last year.

Net financial debt continued to decrease.

During the period, the company's workforce grew by 15 per cent to 100. The latest additions have been aimed at boosting international sales, creating a specific European sales department and reinforcing the teams that operate and service, and sell, in Latin America, Africa and the Middle East.

In 2020, the company was one of the companies whose stock market value grew the most, with a value increase of up to 940%.

During the year, in the stock markets, the firm moved 180 million euros in cash, or 32 million shares, 89 times more than in 2019.

Lleida.net is Europe's leading company in the field of certified electronic notification and contracting.

It holds almost 200 patents within the Digital Signature industry, granted by more than 50 countries on five continents. Its intellectual property portfolio is one of the largest in the sector worldwide.

Today, more than 75 countries recognise the legal validity of its electronic methods as a means of certifying legal notices in procurement processes.

The company is listed on the OTCQX index in New York, Euronext Growth in Paris and BME Growth in Madrid.

The company, which has a market capitalisation of more than 100 million euros, has increased in value by more than nine per cent since the start of 2021.

Important notice

The Offer is not capable of being accepted by persons who are located or resident in the United States unless they are qualified institutional buyers (“QIBs“) (as defined in Rule 144A under the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, as amended), and any purported acceptance of the Offer by persons located or resident in the United States other than QIBs or which, at the sole discretion of Castellum, appear to be made in respect of Entra shares beneficially held by persons located or resident in the United States other than QIBs will not be accepted. By accepting the Offer, Entra shareholders, unless participating pursuant to the exception for QIBs referred to above, will be deemed to represent and warrant, on behalf of themselves and any person on whose behalf they beneficially hold Entra shares, that they are not located or resident in the United States. (See “Notice for U.S. shareholders” below.)

The Offer is not being made, and this press release and any other documentation related to the Offer (including copies thereof) must not be mailed or otherwise distributed, forwarded or sent in or into, nor will any tender of share be accepted from or on behalf of holders in, any jurisdiction (including without limitation Australia, Canada, Hong Kong, Japan, New Zealand, South Africa or Switzerland) or the United States in which the distribution of this press release or the Offer would require any additional measures to be taken or would be in conflict with any law or regulation in any such jurisdiction. Persons who receive this press release (including without limitation banks, brokers, dealers, nominees, trustees and custodians) and are subject to the laws and regulations of any such jurisdiction will need to inform themselves about, and observe, any applicable restrictions and requirements. Any failure to do so may constitute a violation of the securities laws or regulations of any such jurisdiction. To the extent permitted by applicable law, Castellum disclaims any responsibility or liability for any violations of any such restrictions and Castellum reserves the right to disregard any purported acceptance of the Offer resulting directly or indirectly from a violation of any of these restrictions.

Statements in this press release relating to any future status or circumstances, including statements regarding future performance, growth and other trend projections and the other effects of the Offer, are forward-looking statements. These statements may generally, but not always, be identified by the use of words such as “anticipate”, “believe”, “expect”, “intend”, “plan”, “seek”, “will”, “would” or similar expressions. By their nature, forward-looking statements involve risk and uncertainty because they relate to events and depend on circumstances that could occur in the future. There can be no assurance that actual results will not differ materially from those expressed or implied by these forward-looking statements due to many factors, many of which are outside Castellum's control. Any forward-looking statements in this press release speak only as of the date on which they are made and Castellum has no obligation (and undertakes no such obligation) to update or revise any of them, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.

Notice for U.S. shareholders

The Offer is not capable of being accepted by persons who are located or resident in the United States unless they are QIBs, and any purported acceptance of the Offer by persons located or resident in the United States other than QIBs or which, at the sole discretion of Castellum, appear to be made in respect of Entra shares beneficially held by persons located or resident in the United States other than QIBs will not be accepted.

The Offer is made for the issued and outstanding shares in Entra, which is domiciled in Norway, and is subject to Norwegian disclosure and procedural requirements. The Offer is made in the United States to QIBs pursuant to Section 14(e) and Regulation 14E under the U.S. Securities Exchange Act as of 1934 (“Exchange Act“), subject to exemptions provided by Rule 14d-1(d) under the Exchange Act for a “Tier II” tender offer, and otherwise in accordance with the disclosure and procedural requirements of Norwegian law, including with respect to the Offer timetable, settlement procedures, withdrawal, waiver of conditions and timing of payments, which are different from those of the United States. In particular, the financial information included in this press release has been prepared in accordance with applicable accounting standards in Norway and Sweden, which may not be comparable to the financial statements or financial information of U.S. companies. The Offer is made to Entra's shareholders resident in the United States that are QIBs on the same terms and conditions as those made to all other shareholders of Entra to whom an offer is made. Any information documents, including the Offer Document and/or the Supplement, are being disseminated to U.S. shareholders that are QIBs on a basis comparable to the method that such documents are provided to Entra's other shareholders.

To the extent permissible under applicable law or regulations, Castellum and its affiliates or its brokers and its brokers' affiliates (acting as agents for Castellum or its affiliates, as applicable) may from time to time and during the pendency of the Offer, and other than pursuant to the Offer, directly or indirectly, purchase or arrange to purchase, the shares in Entra or any securities that are convertible into, exchangeable for or exercisable for such shares. These purchases may occur either in the open market at prevailing prices or in private transactions at negotiated prices. To the extent information about such purchases or arrangements to purchase is made public in Norway, such information will be disclosed by means of a press release or other means reasonably calculated to inform U.S. shareholders of Entra of such information. In addition, the financial advisers to Castellum may also engage in ordinary course trading activities in securities of Entra, which may include purchases or arrangements to purchase such securities. To the extent required in Norway, any information about such purchases will be made public in Norway in the manner required by Norwegian law.

Neither the SEC nor any U.S. state securities commission has approved or disapproved the Offer, passed upon the merits or fairness of the Offer, or passed any comment upon the adequacy, accuracy or completeness of the disclosure in the Offer Document and/or the Supplement. Any representation to the contrary is a criminal offence in the United States.

It may be difficult for Entra's shareholders to enforce their rights and any claims they may have arising under the U.S. federal securities laws, since Castellum and Entra are located in non-U.S. jurisdictions, and some or all of their respective officers and directors may be residents of non-U.S. jurisdictions. Entra's shareholders may not be able to sue Castellum or Entra or their respective officers or directors in a non-U.S. court for violations of the U.S. federal securities laws. It may be difficult to compel Castellum and Entra and their respective affiliates to subject themselves to a U.S. court's judgment.
