AIM: Atiku Stands for a Better Nigeria


LAGOS, Nigeria, Feb. 15, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Nigerian voters have been asked to "ensure a new dawn that will usher a better Nigeria" by voting for Atiku Abubakar as the next President of the country. Making the request at the continuation of the South East Zone Advocacy and Stakeholders meeting on "Voting Right" by the Atiku Immutable Mandate (AIM) Group in Awka, AIM Group's South-East Zonal Leader Mazi Omife I. Omife noted that the main objective of the meeting is to further enlighten voters on the need to vote for Atiku and how best to thumb print the ballot paper to ensure that their votes really count.

Chairman of Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC), Senator Olabiyi Durojaiye, congratulating Channel VAS founder and CEO Bassim Haidar for his company’s growth and latest achievements, during Africa Com in Cape Town, South Africa recently.

Omife restated his stance that the present Buhari government has made Nigeria the poverty capital of the world. He disclosed that "Studies have shown that Nigerians are worse off today than they were four years ag! o", and t hat "Nigeria's GDP per capita has contracted every year since 2015 when it peaked at $2, 693 per head. In 2016, it fell to $2, 171 and $1, 828 in 2017." Quoting the Brookings Institution, he regretted that "about 8, 000 citizens are falling into extreme poverty on a daily basis."

Alluding to data from the World Bank and Renaissance Capital, Omife noted "With 87 million Nigerians living below the $1.90 poverty baseline, almost one out every two nationals (44 percent) lives in extreme poverty. Incidentally, India, which is second in the poverty scale, has 57 million people that are extremely poor, representing just 4.4 percent of its 1.3 billion population."

He lamented that "access to capital by entrepreneurs remains a problem as only 23 percent of businesses can get needed financing," hence the nation's economy is in dire strait. He therefore urged Nigerians to ensure that electing Atiku Abubakar as the next President of Nigeria turns around the present situation that has occasioned a very precarious socio-economic situation in the country.

Omife reiterated the ten reasons advanced by Atiku why Nigerians should vote for him. The first is that Atiku will build and empower the youth. The second is that Atiku will create jobs. The third is that Atiku will not discriminate. The fourth is that he will respect the Rule of Law. The fifth reason that Nigerians should vote for Atiku is that he will revamp education at basic and higher levels. The sixth, Atiku will lift 50 million people out of extreme poverty. The seventh is that he will rapidly develop infrastructure. The eight is that he will ensure resource control. The ninth is that Atiku will make power work and the tenth reason while Nigerians should vote for Atiku is because he will protect Nigerians.

Lamborghini Super Trofeo Middle East Celebrate Super Speeds with OPPO


DUBAI, UAE, February 15, 2019 /PRNewswire/ --

This weekend the Lamborghini Super Trofeo Middle East 2019 racing championship will kick off at the Dubai Autodrome, with OPPO - a leading global smartphone brand-bringing UAE fans even closer to the action. The Middle East racing series first debuted in 2017 and runs alongside three long-standing continental series in Europe, Asia, and North America.

This year will be the first Lamborghini Super Trofeo season since Automobili Lamborghini and OPPO announced a global partnership covering a range of brand activities and product innovations. This included the launch of an OPPO Find X Automobili Lamborghini Edition in 2018, which was the first smartphone to include OPPO's proprietary SuperVOOC flash charging technology-enabling a full recharge in just 35 minutes as the fastest smartphone charging technology in the world.

The partnership will come alive again at the Lamborghini Super Trofeo Middle East races as OPPO invites racing fans, partners, and celebrities from the region to experience the thrill of Lamborghini Super Trofeo live from the track.

Races will begin at the Dubai Autodrome on February 15 and 16 and then move to Yas Island in Abu Dhabi from February 21 to 23. For the first time, the winners of each class will be admitted to the World Finals, Jerez de la Frontera (Spain) - October 24 - 27, the culmination of the sports season of Sant'Agata Bolognese. Racing fans can attend the two UAE events free of charge.

"Today OPPO and Lamborghini share core company values, such as the relentless pursuit of perfection in product design and user experience," says Any Shi, President of OPPO Middle East & Africa. "Visitors to the Lamborghini Super Trofeo Middle East 2019 will see those values come to life on the track, and together we are thrilled to be giving OPPO fans this unique experience."

Automobili Lamborghini has been part of the evolution of the automotive industry and has become an iconic brand across the globe. Lamborghini's choice of OPPO as an exclusive smartphone partner was announced in June 2018, with the OPPO Find X Automobili Lamborghini Edition making its way to the UAE in September 2018.

The partnership was in part inspired by OPPO's VOOC Flash Charge technology. The industry's first flash charging system implements a more efficient and powerful charging design, making it safer to use OPPO phones while charging and allowing for much faster charging speeds than ever before. The technology is now used in over 100 million smartphones worldwide.

This year OPPO will continue to adjust its product line to offer more premium series to young consumers in the region. To support that repositioning, OPPO has recently launched its second regional hub in Dubai as its new center of operations for the Middle East and Africa (MEA) region.

Kochava Announces Latest Enhancements to IdentityLink, Giving Marketers a Clearer View of Their User Journeys


Delivering deterministic attribution to mobile web channels, IdentityLink adds improved visibility into performance across all devices and marketing channels.

SANDPOINT, Idaho, Feb. 15, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Kochava Inc. (, the industry leader in measurement, attribution and data solutions for connected devices, announced the latest enhancements to its IdentityLink offering, extending deterministic attribution to mobile web channels. Marketers gain an even more complete view of users' true interactions with their advertising.

Kochava offers a unique, unbiased analytics platform to measure mobile attribution, track app installs, and optimize media spend.

Kochava first released IdentityLink in 2012, enabling the platform to digest unique identifiers about audiences from customer sources (CRM, POS, or other internal user identifiers). This powered people-based attribution for comprehensive cross-device measurement for marketers.

Mobile marketers have long faced the challenge of obtaining precision attribution for ads displayed on mobile web channels, with probabilistic methods imparting an unwanted margin of error. Now, data-driven marketers can put the guesswork behind them and benefit from deterministic attribution on all their digital marketing campaigns. Through IdentityLink, Kochava builds a unique bridge between a user's interactions with ads across in-app and mobile web environments on the same device.

In today's complex landscape of digital advertising, performance marketers require innovative, performance attribution for a detailed understanding of users' device profiles and behavior. Kochava measures signals across mobile and online ads, in-app promotions, SMS, search, social, email, wearables, ibeacon, TV, AR, VR, OTT, FireTV, home automation, connected auto, chat bots, and more. All these vectors of data are fed into the Kochava data model where, through the presentation layer, marketers are able to slice and dice their data with great granularity to visualize and improve performance, optimize in real time, and drive ROAS and business outcomes.

For some brands, a great majority of their advertising dollars may be spent through media partners on an increasing variety of platforms; the arrival of deterministic attribution in this space will have a major impact. Brands can now understand the true reach of their marketing campaigns. The outcome is improved visibility and accuracy of performance across all devices including both organic and paid channels.

"Over the past few years, we've pulled our ad spend from dozens of networks because probabilistic attribution, which is the only way anyone has been able to measure over mobile web, is inherently susceptible to fraud. Our position has been one of zero tolerance," said Scott Bauer, Head of User Acquisition, GSN Games. "The addition of deterministic attribution for mobile web from Kochava means we can revisit opportunities with traffic sources in that space. It's a game changer."

"We are pleased to announce the latest enhancements to IdentityLink, providing our marketers with the clearest view yet of their users' journey," said Jason Hicks, VP Marketing & Client Partnerships. "Our longtime offering for bridging user activity across platforms is now even more powerful with our latest deterministic matching capabilities extending to mobile web."

PRN: Citycon Plans to Carry out a Reverse Share Split Fri, 15 Feb 2019 13:24:06 +0100 PR Newswire Turismo PR Newswire Turismo

Citycon Plans to Carry out a Reverse Share Split


CITYCON OYJ   Stock Exchange Release   15 February 2019 at 18:25 hrs

HELSINKI, Finland, Feb. 15, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Citycon Oyj ("Citycon" or the "Company") plans to reduce the number of all shares in the Company through a reverse share split procedure so that each five shares shall be merged to one share. The Board of Directors of Citycon proposes the reverse share split to the Annual General Meeting to be held on 13 March 2019. The proposal by the Company's Board of Directors in its entirety may be found from the Company's website and in the notice to Citycon's Annual General Meeting that will be published later on 15 February 2019. This Stock Exchange Release is a summary of the mentioned proposal of the Board of Directors.

The purpose of merging the shares is to facilitate trade in the Company's shares by increasing the value of an individual share as well as to increase flexibility in connection with a possible distribution of funds. The Board of Directors thus holds that merging the shares is in the interest of the Company and all of its shareholders and that the Company therefore has a weighty financial reason for the reverse share split and the related redemption of shares. The reverse share split does not affect the Company's equity. The reverse split requires the approval by the Annual General Meeting.

The procedure of reverse share split will not require actions from the shareholders. It will not decrease the value of the investment of a shareholder and will not have an impact on the aggregate amounts or payment schedule of any dividend and/or equity repayment to be distributed for the financial year 2018.

The reverse share split will be carried out by redeeming without compensation, in deviation from the proportional shareholdings of shareholders as set out in the Chapter 15, Section 9 of the Companies Act, from every shareholder of Citycon a number of shares corresponding to the result of multiplying the number of shares on each book-entry account on the reverse split date by a coefficient of 4/5, i.e. for each existing five shares, four shares will be redeemed. The number of shares owned by each shareholder will be determined separately for each book-entry account. In order to avoid share fractions, the number of shares redeemed from each shareholder will, if necessary, be rounded up to the nearest whole share.

The fractions of shares redeemed due to the rounding-up will be merged, sold and paid to the respective shareholders in cash. If a shareholder owns less than five shares, all of the shares owned by the shareholder in the Company will be redeemed. In such an event, the shares will be sold on behalf of the shareholder and the proceeds from the sale will be paid to the shareholder in the same way as the proceeds acquired from the sale of the fractions of shares redeemed due to the rounding-up. In other respects, the redemption will be carried out without compensation. The total amount of shares to be redeemed without compensation, and cancelled immediately in connection thereto, is a maximum of 711,994,100 excluding the fractions of shares redeemed due to the rounding-up.

The reverse split date, on the basis of which the shareholders' right to proceeds acquired from the sale of shares redeemed due to the rounding-up is determined, is 15 March 2019. The reverse share split will be executed in the book-entry system after the close of trading on the reverse split date. The cancellation of shares and the new total number of shares in the Company will be evidenced in the Trade Register on or about 18 March 2019 at the latest. Trading with the new total number of the Company's shares will commence on Nasdaq Helsinki with a new ISIN code on or about 18 March 2019. Proceeds acquired from the shares sold due to the rounding-up will be paid to shareholders entitled thereto on or about 25 March 2019.

It is also proposed to the Annual General Meeting that it would resolve to revoke the earlier authorisations of the Board of Directors to decide on the issuance of shares and special rights entitling to shares as well as on the repurchase and/or acceptance as pledge of the Company's own shares and substitute these with new authorisations, which take into account the reduced number of shares due to the reverse share split.

If the general meeting approves the reverse share split, the Board of Directors will amend the Company's share-based incentive schemes in such manner that the reverse share split will be taken into account therein.

Before carrying out the reverse share split, the Company will, if necessary, cancel such number of its shares that the total number of issued shares in the Company will be divisible by five before the reverse share split. Based on the current total number of issued shares in the Company, the Company has today resolved to cancel three of its shares at the request of a shareholder.

Health Conscious Consumers Turn Attention to Advanced Food Processing Tech

  [15-February-2019] News Commentary

NEW YORK, Feb. 15, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Food processing equipment is profoundly popular among consumers and companies involved in the food industry. Processing equipment is used to transform raw materials into food items through various chemical and physical means. The equipment allows the user to transform the food in a much faster and simpler way and is even available in various categories such as slicers, dryers, separators, chillers, mixers, grinders, and homogenizers. According to data compiled by Acumen Research and Consulting, the global food processing equipment market is projected to grow to around USD 718.9 Billion by 2026 while growing at a CAGR of 25.2%. The research also suggests that increasing health consciousness and dietary changes are causing the acceleration of the market. Among the types of equipment, pasta and bakery equipment are projected to increase at a ! faster ra te. Based on application, the poultry, meat, and seafood sub-segments account for the largest shares of the market, followed the beverage sub-segment. PCT Ltd. (OTC: PCTL), Conagra Brands, Inc. (NYSE: CAG), Darling Ingredients Inc. (NYSE: DAR), BRF S.A. (NYSE: BRFS), Dean Foods Company (NYSE: DF) 

Producers in the food industry are now replacing their old machinery with new technologically advanced equipment. The innovative equipment is allowing these producers to meet the demands of consumers while also cutting costs. While providing cheaper alternatives is a bonus for many companies, equipment is required to meet the regulations set forth by the Food Safety Modernization Act. The act calls for sanitary and disinfected equipment to be used in order to avoid contamination and the spread of potentially harmful germs. As a result, many companies use chemical products like chlorine and quaternary, however, now there is equipment that disinfects food for the producers themselves. "Cleaning and disinfecting in the food industry is a crucial part of the production cycle; these activities can have devastating consequences if not done properly. Both form the basis of being able to deliver and guarantee a safe end product. However, it is not an easy task," said Mike Taylor, Senior Chemist and Regulatory Manager, Christeyns Food Hygiene.

Jody Read, CEO of PCT LTD, commented, 'PCT's history of providing its customers with quality equipment that is designed for supportability and built with higher standards has allowed PCT's systems to last longer and with minimal downtime. Our R&D group, headed by Stuart Emmons, P.E., has developed newer and better designs as well as improved reliability.'

PCT's new design is being incorporated into all its large volume Hydrolyte® systems that are being used in Agricultural and Oil & Gas markets. The ability to produce thousands of gallons per day, per system, allows for the post-harvest disinfection of fruits and vegetables for agricultural food processing. The Hydrolyte® fluid solutions can also be used to treat existing oil or gas wells to reduce hydrogen sulfide in "sour wells," to reduce maintenance problems, and also to disinfect fracking water used in hydraulic fracturing.

Business Reporter - Dealing With the Deluge of Data from Smart Cities


LONDON, Feb. 15, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- The "Global Interconnection Index Volume 2" (GXI Vol.2) published by Equinix, is a comprehensive market study that measures and forecasts data growth. To manage the challenge of unprecedented data growth, it is imperative to develop digital infrastructures that can handle current and future data demands.

Our increasingly digitalised world bears testament to the ubiquity of data and IoT devices. Cisco predicts that by 2022, the number of connected mobile devices around the world will reach 12.3 billion, up from 8.6 billion in 2017. The Internet of Things (IoT) has also provided a foundation for smart city technology. Smart cities integrate information technology with IoT devices, to optimise the efficiency of operations and services.

However, the adoption of smart city technology will place huge levels of strain on legacy infrastructure, due to the large quantities of data generated. The GXI Vol.2 alludes to the growing demands of data. It predicts the growth rate of interconnection bandwidth â€�“ the private exchange of data between companies away from the public internet â€�“ will outpace the growth of internet traffic by nearly two times, and will be ten times the volume by 2021. This itself highlights the pressing need to have a good understanding of data growth to support digital infrastructures.

5,000 Jobs Now Created by Business Wales Accelerated Growth Programme


CARDIFF, Wales, Feb. 15, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- A Welsh Government programme offering individual support to SMEs looking to grow and expand has created its 5000th job, Economy Secretary Ken Skates has revealed.

A Welsh Government programme offering individual support to SMEs looking to grow and expand has created its 5000th job, Economy Secretary Ken Skates has revealed.

Business Wales' Accelerated Growth Programme has been an enormous success since its inception in 2015, and reached the impressive milestone as Tiago Szabo, a factory operator for Wrexham based automotive design and manufacture company Hi-Mark, began work at the company's 25,000sq ft site.

Economy Minister Ken Skates was at the factory to witness their growth and to meet Tiago. He said:

"The Business Wales Accelerated Growth Programme has been a real flag bearer for Business Wales and it's fantastic to see that it's now been directly responsible for some of our most ambitious and high potential SMEs creating 5000 new jobs across Wales. It's a success story that's testament to the Welsh Government's proactive support for business and the hard work and expertise of the team there.

"But what's special about this programme isn't just the growth it drives in companies but also the impact that in turn it is having on individuals the length and breadth of Wales. It's 5000 jobs that may otherwise not have been created and it's a source of great pride for me that we have been able to help people like Tiago into a job at a company with a proven track record of delivery that's looking to the future with vision and confidence.

"Hi-Mark's plans to invest in robotics and automation to drive efficiency and further growth are particularly exciting, with this the third such job we have supported there through this scheme. I would encourage businesses in Wales with strong ambitions to grow and expand to explore whether the Accelerated Growth Programme can help them too.

"It was fantastic to meet Tiago and the hard working team at Hi-Mark today. Creating 5000 jobs is no mean feat, and, as I look to the future of the programme, I feel confident in predicting there will be many more milestones to come."

Hi-Mark has been designing and manufacturing injection moulded products for over 40 years. The firm's 40-strong workforce use cutting edge technology to manufacture products that are used by some of the largest automotive companies in the world.

Jack Yates, Managing Director of Hi-Mark:

"The support we have received through the Business Wales Accelerated Growth Programme has been invaluable to us. It helped us through a tricky negotiation phase with a major customer, resulting in us securing a significant order which we may not otherwise have been in a position to win.

"Having access to a highly-respected sales specialist meant we were able to set up a new framework for the way we approach sales and networking. Even though it's early days of adopting these new ways of working, the results speak for themselves.

"I'm delighted that we are the company responsible for creating the 5000th job, which is a great honour for our team. Tiago is settling into the team really well so far and we are confident that our team will continue to grow over coming months.

"I would strongly encourage other businesses looking for support to apply for the programme. Since signing up Hi-Mark has gone from strength to strength, and I'm very grateful for all the help we've received."

Singular Announces Global-First Cross-Device, Cross-Platform ROI Analytics


Marketing Intelligence Platform releases the first ever cross-device and cross-platform measurement of marketing return on investment

SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 14, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Singular, the Marketing Intelligence Platform for growth marketers, is announcing the first cross-device and cross-platform ROI analytics solution.

Photo -

Most marketers can't connect global marketing efforts with customer/user acquisition and sales results across platforms and devices. They advertise over a wide range of publishers, platforms, and devices, and prospective customers engage with those messages in apps, on the web, via streaming TV, or on their wrists. When conversions happen, marketers can't connect the dots.

In addition, getting accurate ROI for each campaign or even each piece of creative is simply impossible.

One impact is non-optimizable marketing â€�” poor data quality that can cost brands an average of $15 million annually, according to Gartner. A second is treating one customer as if she is two or three people, resulting in missed opportunities for growth.

With the release of Cross-Device Attribution, Singular's Marketing Intelligence Platform now connects marketing spend data to conversion results across devices and platforms. First, we ingest granular spend and marketing data from thousands of sources. Then we connect it with attribution data from our easy-to-implement in-app and web SDKs as well as direct integrations with customer data platforms, analytics solutions, and internal BI systems. Finally, we match the two datasets.

The result is the most accurate ROI and CPA metrics for the most granular reporting, giving growth marketers essential context such as exact creative customers engaged with, audience segments they belong to, and precise and accurate cost of customer acquisition and ROI per platform and channel … and even per campaign, publisher and per creative.

This is accurate cross-platform and cross-device ROI analytics for the first time. Singular data shows the best marketers achieve 60% better results simply by getting better, more granular, more accurate, and more insightful data. Adding cross-device ROI gives them even more opportunity to optimize.

This clearly resonates with the most sophisticated marketers in the world.

"Being able to measure marketing performance and ROI across platforms and devices with Singular is valuable for Lyft," Sherry Lin, Growth Marketing Operations Lead at Lyft, said recently at a Singular event in San Francisco. "This ability enables us to intelligently optimize our marketing efforts and grow our business."

Getting a more complete picture enables brands to optimize marketing campaigns and make smarter advertising investments. Marketers can now create more accurate segmentation, helping them personalize offers and streamline customer journeys. Knowing who your most profitable customers are â€�” and where they came from â€�” is critical to achieving profitable growth.

"This capability has literally never existed before," says Singular CEO Gadi Eliashiv. "Marketers have been making spending decisions based on partial and inaccurate data. I think we will see massive tectonic shifts in marketing activities and ad spend when marketers see what's really happening with their campaigns."

About Singular 
Singular is a Marketing Intelligence Platform that transforms marketing data into accurate, granular and actionable insights to drive growth. By unifying marketing campaign data with attribution data, marketers can measure ROI from every touchpoint across multiple channels for a single source of truth.

Scala to Demonstrate Marketing Technology Solutions that Drive Retail Transformation at EuroCIS 2019


SITTARD, The Netherlands, Feb. 14, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Scala will demonstrate how in-store marketing technology can be used to optimize the shopping experience at EuroCIS 2019, "the leading trade fair for retail technology." Through innovative retail technology solutions â€�” including digital signs, augmented and virtual reality, mobile sensors, computer vision technology and artificial intelligence â€�” Scala helps retailers deliver an immersive shopping experience that inspires repeat visits. Scala, part of the STRATACACHE family of marketing technology companies, can be found in booth F03 in hall 10 at EuroCIS 2019, being held 19-21 February in Düsseldorf, Germany.

Additionally during the show, Harry Horn, GM of EMEA and VP of Marketing at Scala, will present "Creating Smart Stores: Using Sensor Tech and Data Insights in Retail" during the EuroCIS Forum on Wednesday, February 20 in Hall 10, stand F04 from 2:20 - 02:40 p.m. "Retailers are realizing the power of analytics gathered throughout the store, informing and driving the customer experience as well as streamlining store operations. Making these insights actionable is key to helping inform a successful in-store shopping strategy," said Horn.

Booth highlights include:

Shopper and store operations dashboards: It's more important than ever to have real-time access to business-critical information wherever and whenever needed. An extensive display of dashboards, showing deep visitor and operational insights tied to each retail experience, is included in a "back of house" area of the booth. Experts will show marketers, retailers and brands how to leverage the power of real-time retail analytics, mobile sensors and artificial intelligence, using STRATACACHE's in-house platform Walkbase to inform and optimize the in-store experience and increase sales.

Virtual reality collaborative design demonstrations: Virtual reality shopping demonstrations will run continually in the booth throughout the show. These live demos show practical, multi-user, real-time, collaborative VR and will highlight use cases for: considered design, virtual inventory, collaborative consumer engagement, internal workflows for pre-visualization, sales engagement possibilities, concepts for flagship enterprise-level immersive interactive experiences and experiential destinations. Bringing immersive design experiences to the retail market, STRATACACHE debuted VR shopping last month, created by Scala Professional Services integrating the NVIDIA Holodeck™ immersive VR environment.

Scala-branded hardware: Scala media players are featured in the booth, including single-, double- and quad-output. All Scala media players are designed for performance, stability and compatibility while ensuring the reliable, timely delivery of rich media experiences. Additionally, on display will be Scala Content Accelerator multimedia caching devices which ensure reliable, timely delivery of rich media experiences in any retail environment.

Guided shopping experiences, focusing on value-add narratives for retailers and marketers: 

Personalisation at Scale: The advent of social media influence has evolved and shaped the way we shop online, and our fashion-focused concept leans into this behavior and makes it more actionable by bringing it into a retail environment. Using a touchscreen display, shoppers browse through looks with the ability to view them from a 360-degree perspective on the red carpet. From there shoppers can share or buy their preferred "look" with one tap.

Service Automation: Scala has integrated ordering kiosks with facial recognition technology and a robotic cocktail machine to create a memorable, streamlined ordering experience. After choosing or designing a favorite drink from our self-ordering kiosks, featuring our own commercial-grade tablets, the robot gets to work preparing the order. By automating certain tasks in the customer experience, sales associates are free to concentrate on shopper interaction and store operations.

Assisted Selling: This concept focuses on two key areas that drive the in-store experience â€�” clarity when comparing products and delivery of a personalised, memorable shopping trip. Visitors use a tablet-based guided selling concept to create their ideal bicycle, comparing features from other bicycles along the way, ensuring they are guided toward the perfect product. Product discovery is streamlined, offering unobtrusive upsell opportunities throughout the experience. The concept also provides a tool for sales associates to have insight into the shopper's preferences before offering assistance, ultimately delivering a concierge-level shopping experience.
