On a reported basis net revenue was 14% lower than in the third quarter of 2019 and included a negative foreign exchange impact of €34 million and the effect of Healthcare France disposal.Over the quarter, the Retail Business Unit reported a net revenue of €348 million, showing a decrease of 5% on a comparable basis. On a reported basis, net revenue decreased by 7% during the quarter and included a negative foreign exchange impact of €6 million and the effect of Healthcare France disposal. Compared with Q3’19, the various activities performed as follows on a like-for-like basis: * SMB (down 6%): The third quarter performance was slightly above our expectations with a positive performance on the non-travel verticals. SMB continued to deliver a steady onboarding rate of merchants on its platform with c.1,000 net new customers per month (c.4,000 gross new customers), thanks to an ongoing decrease of the churn rate during the period and a strong dynamic on online merchants. During the third quarter, the all-in one instore offering, Bambora connect, tailored for ISVs, is continuing to gain traction with a significant ramp-up of one of the contracts signed in H1’20 and good growth prospects expected for the fourth quarter of 2020. * Global Online (down 14%): The third quarter performance came in line with our expectations driven by a good dynamic in the non-Travel verticals such as marketplaces, gaming and digital goods continuing to grow double-digit, but not able to fully compensate the Travel impact. The latter vertical remains impacted by the fall of international travel traffic, as expected, despite some domestic and intra-regional travel recovery, and less refunds flows accounted than in Q2’20. On the regional side, APAC continued showing good momentum again growing double digit. During the period, Global Online pursued its geographical and acceptance network expansion with new client wins during the quarter and expanded relationships with existing clients such as Shein, Zendesk or Mindbody. * Enterprise (up 4%): Performance came slightly better than expected during the third quarter despite the high comparison basis in Q3’19 driven by Healthcare Germany activities. Excluding this specific effect, Enterprise was up 9% on an organic basis. The division is benefiting from a strong traction on both sale of POS and transaction activities. In the latter, the transaction business continued its double-digit growth, driven by the European omnichannel instore platform (Axis), in which processed volumes recovered during the third quarter after a Q2’20 strongly impacted by the lockdowns in Europe. POS activities enjoyed a good dynamic. North America has been a strong driver this quarter, with an activity back to normative levels. * Payone (down 5%): The third quarter performance came in line, with transaction activities fuelled by an acceleration of the shift towards electronic payments, in the trajectory of Q2’20. Usage of card payment in the German market continued to strongly increase, thanks to the improvement of payment threshold leading to a higher usage of contactless payments that represent today c.60% of electronic payments vs c.50% pre-Covid. The conversion of saving banks customers to Payone payment solution remained steady during the quarter, driven by the one-stop shop offering and digital onboarding capabilities, with more than 1,000 net new merchants joining the platform every month. The DACH region shift acceleration towards electronic payments will benefit to Payone performance in the coming quarters.The B&A Business Unit posted a net revenue of €297 million, a 14% decrease on a comparable basis. On a reported basis, the activity decreased by 22% and included a negative foreign exchange impact of €28 million. Compared to Q3’19, the various regions performed as follows on a like-for-like basis: * Europe, Middle-East & Africa (down 4%): The third quarter performance came in solid and slightly above our expectations with a steady improvement of the dynamic quarter to quarter. In Q3’20, France was back to growth, while countries such as DACH and Iberia have shown a good dynamic, fuelled by Terminal as a Service contract signed in H1’20 and the first deliveries of Android POS for the latest. In the meantime, the UK and Italy remained impacted in the current environment. As expected, Eastern Europe, after being back to growth in H1’20, has pursued on the same trajectory, while Russia has continued to suffer from a high comparison basis and a low pipeline of projects. The trajectory of the region should remain solid in the coming quarters with an improvement of the overall performance. * Asia-Pacific (down 27%): The dynamic in the region came in below our expectations during the quarter. China has been still impacted by a very low pipeline due to the lack of projects initiated in H1’20. The situation should continue in the coming quarters. In parallel, India has been strongly impacted by the ongoing lockdowns that are still implemented in the country. As during H1’20, South East Asia came in softer on the back of Indonesia suffering from a high comparison basis. In the meantime, the Pacific region has shown a good dynamic, benefitting from the ongoing impact of commercial successes and pipeline of projects that would continue to deliver good growth basis in Q4’20. * Latin America (down 13%): The dynamic in the region came in slightly better than our expectations with Brazilian market still impacted by the Covid-19 spread during the quarter, combined with high comparison basis. This situation should continue to weight in the coming quarters. In other countries, such as Columbia, Argentina and Peru, the momentum keeps ongoing on the same trajectory as H1’20, fuelled by the contracts signed and the pipeline of projects. * North America (down 8%): The third quarter performance came in line with a level of activity stabilizing sequentially after four quarters of strong growth. On the regional side, Canada is back to a normative level of activity during the last quarter. US-based activity remained strong benefitting from the early implementation of our ISV vertical initiative showing a continuous strong dynamic fuelled by project delivery and development of partner programs. In the meantime, the first Terminal as a Service contract has been signed during the Q3’20. The ongoing demand on back of the EMV cycle renewals remains robust and some consolidation of market shares has been achieved. Overall, the pipe should sustain sequentially the level of activity in the coming quarters. All 2020 objectives confirmed * Net revenue: a mid to high single digit organic decline * EBITDA: an EBITDA margin above 21% (20.9% in FY’19) * Free cash-flow conversion: a FCF conversion above 50%The 2020 objectives communicated in April have been built on the three following scenarios structured around different recovery curves: * Scenario 1: return to the pre-Covid-19 guidance of 4% to 6% organic growth in Q4’20 leading to a mid-single digit organic decline in FY’20; * Scenario 2: return to the pre-Covid-19 guidance of 4% to 6% organic growth in December 2020 leading to a mid to high single digit organic decline in FY’20; * Scenario 3: return to the pre-Covid-19 guidance of 4% to 6% organic growth in Q1’21 leading to a high single digit organic decline in FY’20.After nine months of activity, the Group’s business assumptions remain unchanged, i.e. a progressive pick-up in consumption while stores re-open depending on health constraints, a central scenario on travel with no recovery of international travel before 2021 and a gradual pick-up on regional travel, and some possible short and local re-confinements in the countries in which the Group operates.Based on the recent performance with a third quarter better than expected driven by a post-confinement pick-up in activity, Ingenico anticipates for the fourth quarter a gradual recovery curve.Despite this phasing, the overall group’s performance for the full year should remain in the mid to high single digit organic decline, confirming the expected growth scenario.Based on this scenario, Ingenico Group confirms its strong and holistic action plan activated early March, aiming at adapting its cost structure, protecting profitability and preserving cash. Consequently, on top of the Fit for Growth plan that will deliver €35 million EBITDA impact in 2020, this C19 action plan implemented during Q1’20 will deliver €100 million added EBITDA impact in 2020.Ingenico Group’s long-term growth drivers remain intact and we are convinced that the Group should come out of the current crisis even stronger with the engagement of all of the teams serving our clients for the benefit of all of our stakeholders.

IFRS net operating income was negative USD 2.02 billion and the IFRS net income was negative USD 2.12 billion, following net impairments of USD 2.93 billion mainly due to reduced future price assumptions. * Solid results from operations in a low-price environment * On track to deliver on USD 3 billion action plan to strengthen financial resilience * Strong value creation from renewables * Net debt ratio(1) increased to 31.6%, due to net impairments and payment for government share of share buy-back“Our financial results are impacted by weak prices as regions across the world are still severely affected by the pandemic. We see the results of our forceful response to the market turmoil, with significant cost improvements and strict financial discipline. Net impairments in the quarter are mainly due to reduced price assumptions. Significant uncertainty remains around the future commodity price development underlining the importance of increased competitiveness and financial resilience,” says Eldar Sætre, President and CEO of Equinor ASA.“We deliver solid operational results in the quarter with an underlying production growth of nine percent. We progress our competitive project portfolio, supported by the tax policy measures in Norway, with the delivery of Plan for Development and Operation of the Breidablikk field. Our specialised organisation for late-life production at the Norwegian continental shelf had a successful start-up showing improved production efficiency and reduced cost,“ says Sætre.“We continue to capture value from our renewable energy portfolio and position ourselves for profitable growth in value chains for carbon capture and storage. This quarter we announced our partnership with BP, including the divestment of half of our share of offshore wind projects Empire Wind and Beacon Wind in the US. We are progressing H2H Saltend, a project for large-scale production of hydrogen in the UK, and in Norway we are progressing the Northern Lights project as part of creating full value chains for carbon capture, transportation and storage,” says Sætre.Adjusted earnings  were USD 0.78 billion in the third quarter, down from USD 2.59 billion in the same period in 2019. Adjusted earnings after tax  were USD 0.27 billion, down from USD 1.08 billion in the same period last year. Low prices for liquids and gas impacted the earnings for the quarter.Equinor is on track to deliver on the action plan launched in March 2020 of USD 3 billion to strengthen financial resilience, including a reduction of operating costs of USD 0.70 billion. Unit production costs are significantly reduced from third quarter last year. In the E&P Norway segment, Equinor saw weak prices impacting the results but took advantage of the flexibility in gas production as gas prices in Europe recovered through the quarter.Results in the E&P International segment were impacted by low prices, partially offset by a substantial reduction in costs. The E&P USA segment was also impacted by weak prices, while continuing efforts to reduce activity and costs.The Marketing, midstream and processing segment captured value from gas sales to Europe, offset by slightly negative refinery margins in the quarter.New energy solutions delivered a positive result in the quarter, including costs related to maturation of new projects. A capital gain of around USD 1 billion from the divestment of a 50% non-operated interest of the offshore wind projects Empire Wind and Beacon Wind in the US is expected to be booked in the first quarter of 2021.IFRS net operating income was negative USD 2.02 billion in the third quarter, down from negative USD 0.47 billion in the same period of 2019. IFRS net income was negative USD 2.12 billion in the third quarter, down from negative USD 1.11 billion in the third quarter of 2019.Net operating income was impacted by net impairments of USD 2.93 billion mainly due to reduced future price assumptions as well as some reductions in reserves estimates. Net impairments include USD 1.38 billion in the E&P USA segment, of which USD 1.21 billion is related to US onshore. Impairments in the E&P International segment were USD 1.18 billion, while impairments within the E&P Norway segment was USD 0.37 billion. In total, USD 0.58 billion of the net impairment was recognised as exploration expenses.Equinor delivered total equity production of 1,994 mboe per day in the third quarter, up from 1,909 mboe per day in the same period in 2019, with an increased share of gas. Adjusting for portfolio transactions and government-imposed curtailments, this represents an underlying production growth of around 9% compared to the third quarter of 2019.At the end of the third quarter Equinor has completed 26 exploration wells with 13 commercial discoveries and two wells under evaluation. At the quarter end, 16 wells were ongoing. Adjusted exploration expenses in the quarter were USD 0.30 billion, compared to USD 0.26 billion in the same quarter of 2019.Cash flows provided by operating activities before taxes paid and changes in working capital amounted to USD 10.2 billion in the first nine months of 2020, compared to USD 16.6 billion in the first nine months of 2019.

At the closing of the quarter net debt to capital employed(2) was 31.6%, up from 29.3% at the end of the second quarter of 2020, mainly impacted by the net impairment in the quarter, as well as share buy-back from the Norwegian state.

Myanmar's civilian leader Aung San Suu Kyi cast her ballot Thursday ahead of Election Day next week with hundreds of thousands of elderly voters across the country expected to follow suit to reduce the risk of coronavirus.
Tel Aviv, Israel, Oct. 29, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- There is a rapid evolution taking place in the cannabis industry. Increasing research into the myriad potential that chemovars, or strains, of hold for our health holds promise for millions suffering from a variety of health complaints around the world. At Cannigma, researchers have compiled a comprehensive index of cannabis strains intended to make this information more accessible to those who can benefit most from it. Those seeking relief from a wide range of complaints and conditions – from insomnia and anxiety to cancer, bipolar disorder and epilepsy – can filter and customize their search to find a strain according to which research and broad anecdotal evidence suggests the highest potential for relief. There are thought to be hundreds of unique cannabis strains in the world today, which are often categorised into ‘Indica’ and ‘Sativa’ — or hybrids of the two. Each of these strains is thought to offer differing effects, in part due to their unique profile of terpenes (responsible for smell, flavour and differences in the effect brought on by the plant) and CBD-to-THC ratios. The team at the Cannigma Tree LTD brings consumers and patients the best information out there on cannabis and its benefits. About Cannigma:Cannigma Tree LTD is a firm based out of Herzilya in Israel who report and research independently on all things to do with cannabis.

The market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 10. 6 % during 2019–2027. The growth of the pulmonary devices market in Asia Pacific is attributed to the increasing prevalence of respiratory diseases and growing number of COVID-19 cases.New York, Oct. 29, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Reportlinker.com announces the release of the report "Asia Pacific Pulmonary Devices Market Forecast to 2027 - COVID-19 Impact and Regional Analysis By Type ; Application ; and End User and country" - https://www.reportlinker.com/p05978832/?utm_source=GNW Factors such as unfavorable reimbursement scenario associated with the pulmonary device are likely to restrain the growth of the market. Additionally, strategic activities by manufacturers and increasing preference of home care products are likely to fuel the growth of the pulmonary devices market during the forecast period. Pulmonary or respiratory devices are used to remove mucus and secretions from the respiratory tract.
