GREAT WEST GOLD, INC. - RESTRUCTURING OF COMPANY Company outlines the salient points of its restructure


 

Promens hf. the world leading rotational molder has decided to build a new green-field rotational molding plant in Poland. The construction of the plant will start in a few weeks and it will be in operation mid next year. The plant will be built on 5.6 hectares (13.8 acres) of land in a new industrial park in Miedzyrzecz where Bonar Polska Sp. Z o.o., a Promens subsidiary has been operating a rotational molding plant since 2001. The initial size of the plant will be 9.900 m2 (106.500 square feet), but the site will accommodate a plant more that double that size. The new factory, which will replace the current plant, will be highly efficient. Its design will be based on the newest production principles and it will increase the production capacity in Poland considerably. The plant is strategically well located near Poznan in Poland with good availability of highly qualified workers. It is erected to meet the growing demand from the market for rotational molded products in both east and west Europe, a market in which Promens is, and intends to continue to be an active player. Today Bonar Plastics Polska employs 90 people and supplies products to customers from multiple industries in both east and west Europe. The Managing Director of Bonar Plastics Polska is Mr. Tomasz Dyszkant.

1112 [Dow Jones] STOCK CALL: Macquarie Equities suggests competing bids to Hospira's (HSP) A$4.10/share cash offer for Mayne Pharma (MYP.AU) may come from Abraxis (ABBI) and Actavis (ACT.IC), with Teva (TEVA) and Novartis' (NOVN.VX) generics unit Sandoz "likely to have already played their hand in ensuring a full price was paid." Adds, "The value of the (HSP) bid is well above our estimate for an opening offer level... But again, this is a reflection of the confidential auction process run by the company. We see the potential for materially higher, all-cash bids as being relatively low." Keeps Neutral recommendation. Last trade up 6 cents at A$4.22. (ABH)

Berlin, Sept 22, 2006 - Jerini AG (FSE:JI4) will host an audio webcast and conference call, including an open question and answer session, on Friday, September 22nd, 2006, to discuss the results of its two Phase III trials.


 

Berlin, Sept 21, 2006 - Jerini AG (FSE:JI4) announced today the results of its two pivotal Phase III trials (FAST-1 and FAST-2) for the subcutaneous treatment of hereditary angioedema (HAE). In the FAST-2 study, the primary endpoint was reached, showing a significant reduction in the time to onset of symptom relief. While FAST-1 results were clinically relevant, the primary endpoint was not reached. A supportive analysis combining both studies showed a significant reduction in the time to onset of symptom relief. Secondary endpoints, such as patient and physician reported time to first improvement of symptoms, and the time to almost complete relief of symptoms showed highly significant results in favor of Icatibant. Based on the clinically relevant and consistent results of the two trials, the company intends to apply as planned for expedited reviews by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the European Medicines Agency (EMEA) starting submission at year end 2006, with potential launch in 2007. In one study comparing Icatibant against tranexamic acid, 74 patients were randomized in Europe and Israel (FAST-2). The primary endpoint was met with a median time to onset of symptom relief of 2.0 hours for Icatibant versus 12.0 hours for tranexamic acid. Secondary endpoints entered in the analysis also showed statistically significant differences in favor of Icatibant. Icatibant showed an excellent safety profile in this study.

As already announced, Stork Fokker AESP and Stork SP Aerospace, operating companies of Stork Aerospace Industries, are taking measures to improve competitive strength and profitability and to counter the delays in a number of major new aircraft programmes. The operating companies are currently migrating from portfolio-building to the production phase of aircraft programmes in which further improvement of productivity and margins is necessary. In addition, delays in the production schedules of important aircraft programmes such as the A380 and the NH90, which have already been announced have led to the need for these measures. The measures mean that employment will be reduced by a total of 185 jobs at the Hoogeveen and Papendrecht locations of Stork Fokker AESP. Approximately 30 further positions will be lost at the operating company Stork SP Aerospace in Geldrop. Some 110 temporary positions have already been phased-out since the beginning of 2006. A reorganisation charge estimated at a total of ¤ 10 million will be taken in the fourth quarter. Initiatives have also started to optimise business processes. The total savings from these initiatives and from the reduction in employment are expected to be approximately ¤ 25 million and should be achieved by the end of 2008. A part of these savings will be reflected directly in the result. The trade unions have been informed of the intended reduction in employment and the plan has been submitted to the Works Council for their review.

Kenmare Director Appointment


 

Hannover, 7 September 2006: In a survey conducted by the widely respected US-based Flaspöhler Research Group, Hannover Re came out as the best overall reinsurer for the second time in succession. Not only that, the company's standing showed further appreciable improvement in the assessment of the participating brokers, 63.1% of whom chose Hannover Re as the best reinsurer on the North American market. The company's lead over the second-best player stood at around 15 percentage points, and Hannover Re received almost double the number of votes of its third-placed competitor. 366 experts at leading reinsurance brokerage firms took part in the study, giving their opinions on 28 reinsurers active in the US market. Bearing in mind that North American reinsurance business is predominantly handled through brokers - they place more than two-thirds of the total market volume -, these findings take on considerably greater significance. Particularly favourable reference was made to the good personal relationships with the underwriters in Hannover and the company's quick, responsive handling of business. This is all the more remarkable given the fact that Hannover Re writes its entire North American portfolio from its Hannover Home Office. In terms of market know-how and client orientation too, geographical distance is quite obviously not a drawback for Hannover Re. In this, the most important survey of the North American market, the participating brokers rated Hannover Re as the best reinsurer in the following categories:
