Company Announcement No 02/20212 March 2021 Sydbank’s 2020 Annual Report Sydbank ended 2020 with a satisfactory profit. In 2021 profit is expected to be higher than in 2020 Sydbank’s 2020 financial statements show a profit before tax of DKK 1,021m compared to DKK 1,081m in 2019. The decrease of DKK 60m is primarily attributable to impairment charges for loans and advances which represent an expense of DKK 47m compared to an income of DKK 97m in 2019. Profit before tax equals a return of 8.6% p.a. on average equity. Profit for the year after tax represents DKK 799m against DKK 853m in 2019, equal to a return on average equity of 6.6%. At the beginning of 2020 profit after tax was projected to be in the range of DKK 700-1,000m. CEO Karen Frøsig comments on the year’s results:- It is good news that after a challenging year affected by Covid-19 we can deliver a profit at the very top of the most recently announced range of DKK 700-800m and also achieve our objective of a top 3 ranking among the largest banks measured in terms of return on equity. - As a result of the acquisition of Alm. Brand Bank, total credit intermediation has risen sharply by more than DKK 20bn. The acquisition shows that Sydbank wishes to acquire and merge with banks with Sydbank as the continuing bank. It also shows that we are interested in visionary partnerships that create value for customers and partners. Karen Frøsig comments on banking in Covid-19 times:- Covid-19 has turned the world upside down. Our employees have been extremely flexible and have succeeded in providing advice to customers during a difficult time. It is particularly gratifying to see that our customers acknowledge that Sydbank has been excellent at setting up online meetings and ensuring their quality. - I am pleased that so far Sydbank’s customers have handled the coronavirus crisis well. For reasons of prudence the management estimate related to Covid-19 was raised by DKK 100m in Q4 2020 and now totals DKK 325m. Despite this increase impairment charges only represented an expense of DKK 1m in Q4 2020. Board chairman Lars Mikkelgaard-Jensen comments:- After a year when the dividend was cancelled and the share buyback programme was terminated prematurely, it is positive that we can distribute dividend to our shareholders again, which represents 30% of profit for the year. At the same time the acquisition of Alm. Brank Bank creates long-term value for shareholders as profit before tax in 2022 is projected to increase by around DKK 200m. After the acquisition of Alm. Brand Bank and a dividend distribution of DKK 238m the Bank will continue to be well capitalised. 2020 highlights A 2% increase in total incomeA decline in costs (core earnings) of DKK 9m Impairment charges of DKK 47mProvision for potential Covid-19 losses of DKK 325m, including DKK 100m in Q4 2020 Negative investment portfolio earnings of DKK 31mDecrease in profit for the year of DKK 54m to DKK 799m Bank loans and advances of DKK 60.2bnDeposits of DKK 95.9bnA capital ratio of 24.0%, including a CET1 ratio of 18.8%A proposed dividend of DKK 4.00 per share.

Pinduoduo doubles agricultural GMV to record 270 billion yuan in 2020 Growers pick fresh pomegranates for consumers on Pinduoduo SHANGHAI, China, March 02, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Pinduoduo Inc. (“Pinduoduo”, or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: PDD), China’s largest agriculture platform, doubled the value of agricultural orders it handled last year, exceeding the company’s earlier estimate as the pandemic pushed more people to order food and groceries online. The Nasdaq-listed company recorded more than 270 billion yuan ($42 billion) in agriculture-related GMV in 2020, up from 136 billion yuan in 2019. The firm had said last December it was on track to hit 250 billion yuan in GMV for the category. Sales were helped in part by the pandemic, which pushed more producers to seek alternatives to traditional wholesale channels. Lockdown restrictions pushed consumers to embrace digital offerings. Pinduoduo has focused on agriculture since its establishment in 2015, transforming the way food is grown, transported and sold by connecting more than 12 million farmers directly to a user base of 731 million consumers. The company was recognized earlier this month by the central government for its work alleviating rural poverty.“Agricultural produce is our bread and butter and making groceries affordable and available to our 731 million consumers wherever they are, whenever they want, is our calling,” said Chen Lei, Chief Executive Officer of Pinduoduo. “Digital agriculture increases the efficiency of the food supply chain and safeguards food security at the same time. We’re just at the beginning of the digital revolution in agriculture and are glad that we're making progress every day.”Last year, as Covid-19 disrupted food supply chains and threatened farmer livelihoods, Pinduoduo held livestreaming sessions with poverty-stricken farming communities to promote their agricultural products and created a dedicated “Help the Farmers” channel to showcase fresh produce from affected areas. The company has applied its pioneering team purchase model to bring economies of scale to smallholder farms, by aggregating scattered consumer interest into sizable, coordinated demand. Connecting sellers directly with such demand helps eliminate added costs and wastage due to unsold food. In August 2020, Pinduoduo introduced Duo Duo Grocery, its next-day pickup service, to help local farmers sell directly to local consumers. Orders placed before 11 p.m. are fulfilled by local farms and dropped off at designated collection points by 4 p.m. the following day, providing consumers a more economical option to premium same-day delivery services. Pinduoduo raised $6.1 billion in November 2020 to strengthen its balance sheet and make strategic investments. The company is investing in creating a logistics infrastructure that is more suited to handling perishables. It is also investing in upstream agri-food technology that can help raise agricultural productivity and quality. The company is actively evaluating global investment opportunities in areas including alternative proteins, food safety and precision farming. About Pinduoduo Inc. Pinduoduo provides an online marketplace that connects millions of agricultural producers with consumers across China. Pinduoduo aims to bring more businesses and people into the digital economy so that local communities can benefit from the increased productivity and convenience through new market opportunities.

World Rugby’s head of match officials Joel Jutge says referee Pascal Gauzere has acknowledged key mistakes made in England’s Six Nations defeat by Wales in Cardiff. Eddie Jones’ defending champions saw their 2021 title hopes effectively ended by a 40-24 loss at the Principality Stadium on Saturday evening. While in the end England - also defeated by Scotland at Twickenham on opening weekend - ultimately only had their poor discipline to blame for the loss after levelling the match at 24-all with 20 minutes still to play, the decision to award Wales two first-half tries proved hugely controversial.
