EMMAC is the Largest Independent European Cannabis Company with Low-Cost Cultivation, EU-GMP Manufacturing and Processing, and an Import / Distribution Network in all Key European MarketsNEW YORK, Oct. 26, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Andina Acquisition Corp. III (NASDAQ: ANDA, ANDAW, and ANDAU) (“Andina”) and EMMAC Life Sciences Limited (“EMMAC”) jointly provided an update regarding their continued progress towards signing a business combination agreement, pursuant to which EMMAC is anticipated to become a publicly traded company on the NASDAQ Stock Market with EMMAC’s shareholders receiving equity in the combined public company in exchange for their equity in EMMAC. As consideration for the transaction, it is anticipated that the current EMMAC shareholders would collectively own a majority of the equity of the combined public company. Andina and EMMAC previously announced that they had signed a non-binding letter of intent (the “LOI”) relating to a business combination on July 22, 2020. The Companies anticipate being able to announce progress towards the execution of a business combination agreement in the near term. In the interim, EMMAC continues to receive support from its shareholders, among them leading institutional investors, allowing it to continue its investment in its business and maintain its growth trajectory.Completion of the business combination is subject to, among other matters, the completion of due diligence, the negotiation and execution of a definitive agreement for the business combination, satisfaction of the conditions negotiated therein and approval of the transaction by Andina stockholders. Accordingly, there can be no assurance that a definitive agreement will be entered into or the proposed transaction will be consummated on the terms or timeframe currently contemplated, or at all. Any transaction would be subject to the approval of the board of directors and shareholders of each of Andina and EMMAC, as well as other customary conditions.Luke Weil, Executive Chairman of Andina, and Julio A. Torres, CEO of Andina, said, “We remain confident that EMMAC is an attractive investment opportunity and would be a tremendous merger partner for Andina. We therefore look forward to providing additional information regarding the status of the proposed transaction soon. EMMAC continues to invest in its business to cement its position in Europe, and the recent operational progress of EMMAC gives us great confidence that it can deliver significant value for shareholders in 2021.”Lorne Abony, Executive Chairman of EMMAC, and Antonio Costanzo, CEO of EMMAC, said, “We continue to pursue opportunities within the European cannabis market and the third quarter of 2020 was one of continued investment in the business and growth for the Company, with the operational team achieving a number of important milestones despite continued headwinds caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and ongoing regulatory change. We are also working hard to reach a definitive agreement with Andina, as their team possesses significant experience assisting companies like ours and will add significant value to us as a strategic partner.”EMMAC is Europe’s largest independent cannabis company, bringing together cutting-edge scientific research with the latest innovations in medical cannabis cultivation, extraction and production. EMMAC is a trusted cannabis partner for the medical and wellness communities and a leader in the production and supply of medical cannabis, wellness CBD, hemp, and other derivative products with large scale, low-cost, cultivation, EU-GMP manufacturing and processing, import/distribution network across all critical European markets. EMMAC has established pharmaceutical and medical cannabis manufacturing credibility and a direct-to-patient pharmacy license, multiple take-or-pay contracts for wholesale cannabis, and a strong portfolio of wellness brands and wellness products. EMMAC is also the first European cannabis company to sell and export product to Israel and is anticipated to launch white-label CBD products in the U.S.Cowen and Craig-Hallum are serving as financial and capital markets advisors to Andina and Ellenoff Grossman & Schole LLP is serving as legal advisor to Andina. Stifel is serving as financial advisor to EMMAC. Winston & Strawn LLP is serving as legal advisor to EMMAC.Recent EMMAC Business Developments * On October 16, 2020, EMMAC announced the commencement of UK manufacture of its range of premium medical cannabis products. Rokshaw Laboratories (“Rokshaw”), EMMAC’s wholly owned subsidiary and a leading UK MHRA-approved Specials Manufacturer, received its first commercial shipment of medical cannabis Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient (“API”) from Medalchemy S.L., EMMAC’s subsidiary that operates its Good Manufacturing Practice (“GMP”) certified manufacturing site in Alicante, Spain (“Medalchemy”). Medalchemy will begin exporting medical cannabis API to other countries in the coming months. We believe the shipment also validates EMMAC’s business model, as it demonstrates that the vertically integrated supply chain, from its cultivation facilities in Portugal to its two EU-GMP processing facilities, laboratories and importation and distribution capabilities in key markets across Europe, yields high-quality product and the most competitive price points. The integrated supply chain significantly reduces the market price of medical cannabis for patients in the UK, and notably brings costs below black-market prices for many patients (who may be currently self-medicating). * On August 18, 2020, EMMAC announced that EMMAC SAGL, the Group’s pharmaceutical entity in Switzerland, has secured its Good Distribution Practice (“GDP”) license for the distribution of medicinal products. EMMAC now has the ability to import, distribute and export medicinal products, including medical cannabis, for the domestic Swiss, EU and international markets. * On July 28, 2020, EMMAC announced that Medalchemy, the Group’s Good Manufacturing Practice (“GMP”) certified manufacturing site in Alicante, Spain, has secured approval from the Spanish Health Authorities (“AEMPS”) to cultivate medical cannabis. Medalchemy now has fully integrated cannabis supply facilities, with a license to grow medical cannabis commercially as well as extract and manufacture cannabis extract as an API. EMMAC now holds multiple medical cannabis licenses in four countries across Europe. About Andina Acquisition Corp. III Andina Acquisition Corp.

Summary With about $1tn of construction and transport projects planned or under construction, there is no shortage of potential opportunities in the GCC’s construction market.New York, Oct. 26, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Reportlinker.com announces the release of the report "GCC Construction Outlook 2020 - Opportunities and Challenges in GCC Construction - MEED Insights" - https://www.reportlinker.com/p05978810/?utm_source=GNW And with a further $1.2bn of developments promised through long-term transformational masterplans and megaprojects, such as Saudi Arabia’s $500bn Neom future city, the potential of the GCC construction market is not likely to disappear anytime soon. But while there are abundant opportunities for construction companies in the GCC, there is no shortage of challenges.Over the past five years, contractors, consultants and manufacturers have faced considerable pain and uncertainty as a result of the fall in oil prices in 2014. Cuts to government spending and a growing oversupply in the key real estate markets such as Dubai reduced new project opportunities and increased competition for work, while delayed payments hit cash flow. In terms of contract awards, 2019 was the worst year for the GCC construction industry since 2012 with only about $57.8bn worth of construction and transport project contracts awarded in the Gulf. The figure is 9.5 per cent down on award levels in 2018. And is far below the $107.5bn of contract awards seen in 2013, the best year on record. By the end of 2019 however, construction companies were looking forward optimistically to a long-awaited rebound in construction activity, led by the giant Saudi Arabian market.The stabilisation of oil prices and the launch of the kingdom’s megaprojects promised a new dawn for GCC construction. By March however, the optimism was dashed as it became clear that the Covid-19 pandemic was not going to pass quickly, and companies shifted their focus to simply surviving the crisis. While the Covid-19 lockdowns have disrupted supply chains and on-site delivery, a new slump in oil prices in March and April, has raised new doubts about future project opportunities. The problems of the past five years have accelerated in the first five months of 2020, and construction companies must rethink their processes and strategies in order to prepare for the new GCC construction market in a post-Covid-19 world. Key to rethinking business development strategy is understanding where the future growth will come from, and who the key clients will be. Written by MEED, the Middle East market experts within the Group, "GCC Construction Outlook 2020" is the latest premium intelligence report from MEED Insight. It assesses the prospects for construction in the coming two years in the wake of Covid-19 outbreak, and analyses the opportunities and challenges for contractors, consultants and suppliers across the region’s six markets. It is a powerful resource for anyone seeking to do business in the GCC construction and infrastructure sector at a key point in the development of the market.

Swiss banks have so far weathered the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic well, Swiss National Bank (SNB) Chairman Thomas Jordan said on Monday, cautioning that a strong franc could pose a problem for the Swiss financial industry. Jordan said the Swiss franc was one of the most solid currencies in the world and as such tended to appreciate strongly in times of high uncertainty. "We have witnessed this again recently," he said, adding the central bank's negative interest rate and willingness to intervene in the foreign exchange market served to counteract the attractiveness of Swiss franc investments.

Oslo, 26 October 2020Reference is made to the stock exchange release 20 October 2020 regarding the notice of Extraordinary General Meeting in Saga Tankers ASA.

(Bloomberg) -- Tropical Storm Zeta gathered strength as it bore down on the Mexican cities of Cozumel and Cancun, where it was forecast to dump heavy rain before turning north to threaten the U.S. Gulf Coast from Louisiana to Mississippi with another direct hit.Zeta was churning southeast of the Yucatan and getting more powerful as it moved over warm waters, the U.S. National Hurricane Center said Monday. The storm will likely arrive at the Mexican resort towns as a Category 1 hurricane early Tuesday, pummeling a region that suffered widespread flooding from Hurricane Delta only weeks ago. As much as 8 inches (20 centimeters) of rain could fall across the Yucatan, parts of Cuba and even into Florida as Zeta moves north.“Zeta is forecast to become a hurricane this morning, and continued strengthening is likely until Zeta moves over the Yucatan peninsula this evening,” Dan Brown, a meteorologist at the center, wrote in his forecast. “Zeta is forecast to be at or near hurricane strength when it approaches the northern Gulf Coast on Wednesday, and there is an increasing risk of storm surge, rainfall, and wind impacts from Louisiana to the Florida Panhandle.”Zeta is the 27th named storm in a supercharged Atlantic hurricane season, just one short of the record reached in 2005, when Hurricane Katrina devastated New Orleans. So many storms have formed this year that the hurricane center has run out of official names and is using Greek letters to designate systems.The U.S. has been particularly hard hit, with Hurricanes Isaias, Laura, Hanna, Sally and Delta all hammering the coastline, causing billions of dollars in damage. A handful of tropical storms have struck the U.S. as well. Zeta would be the record 11th storm to come ashore in the contiguous U.S. this year, and if it makes landfall in Louisiana, it will be the fifth time that state has been hit this season.Chevron Corp. and BHP Group Ltd. have already begun pulling non-essential personnel off oil and gas platforms in the Gulf, where Zeta is expected to become a Category 1 hurricane before making landfall Wednesday. Noble Corp. moved its Globetrotter II rig out of the way, while Equinor ASA plans to shut production at its Titan platform.The disruptions will likely be short lived because Zeta is moving quickly and should be on land by late Wednesday, said Matt Rogers, president of Commodity Weather Group LLC.Zeta will approach the Gulf Coast as Category 1 hurricane, but cooler water and wind shear, which tears at its structure, will likely keep it from strengthening and could even weaken it, said Elizabeth Palumbi, a meteorologist with commercial forecaster Maxar.While some storms, including Isaias and Fay, hit the East Coast, the majority of systems struck the Gulf Coast between Texas and Florida. That includes Hurricanes Laura and Delta, which both came ashore near Cameron, Louisiana, providing a double-dose of misery for residents in the western part of the state.A typical Atlantic hurricane season only spins up 12 storms. The six-month season theoretically ends on Nov. 30, but a number of storms formed before its official start date of June 1 this year, and some meteorologists think they could keep coming into December.(Updates with offshore energy evacuations in sixth paragraph.)For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.

Nearly every senior executive has experienced a point in time in their career ascent that has helped to define them. For female executives, these junctures have often given them the confidence to reach higher and pursue their ultimate goals. In this panel, female executives will share their first-hand accounts of positive and difficult moments that helped shape their careers, along with motivational and inspiring messaging for female technology executives to path their own path. “Women are a powerful yet underrepresented group in the technology sector who often face unique barriers to advancement,” said Jennifer Wesson Greenman, CIO, Cancer Treatment Centers of America Global who is both a Chairperson and a speaker at the upcoming summit. “I’m honored to participate in the HMG Global Women in Technology Summit so that I can learn from other female technology executives and contribute to the professional growth of my colleagues across all industries.”Strategic Partners for the 2020 HMG Live!
