Philip Morris International Presents IQOS World Revealed by Alex Chinneck at Milan Design Week 2019

Jaa

Philip Morris International Inc. (PMI) (NYSE: PM) today presents IQOS World revealed by Alex Chinneck at Milan Design Week 2019, the pinnacle event in the world of art and design. IQOS, the flagship innovation in PMI’s smoke-free portfolio, will host the exhibition to the public April 9-14.

The IQOS World exhibition—which is expected to be visited by more than 50,000 people during Milan Design Week—is an artistic expression of the future, brought to life through a collaboration with well-known sculptor Alex Chinneck, whose art is distinguished by his bold and disruptive vision. Alex’s unique talent for combining art, architecture and theater in his work manifests on a monumental scale: The architecture itself, both inside and out, becomes transformed into a work of art, taking on new and unexpected shapes. The walls and floor become metaphors for a process of transformation, evoking—through imaginative portals—seemingly infinite routes to a newly imagined future.

“By taking familiar materials and architectural forms and making them behave in extraordinary ways, we are working with IQOS to change visitors’ perceptions of what is possible,” said Chinneck. “Through the repeated use of the zipper, we have opened up the fabric of a seemingly historic Milanese building to playfully re-imagine what lies behind its facade, floors and walls. Ethereal light pours through each opening, filling the space with color and filling the work with a sense of positivity and potential.”

Milan Design Week is the most important event in the world related to the topic of design—it premieres the latest trends and plays host to events, exhibitions and presentations that complement the unparalleled design of IQOS.

“PMI is leading the transformation of the tobacco industry—one that is based on science and innovation. Our aim is to create a smoke-free future; that is, a future where smoke-free products like IQOS replace cigarettes to the benefit of society,” said Frederic de Wilde, president EU Region, PMI. “It is precisely this thought, aimed at revealing an alternative vision of the future, which naturally guided our collaboration between IQOS and Alex Chinneck.”

IQOS 3 and IQOS 3 MULTI represent the latest versions of the flagship smoke-free device from Philip Morris International. They are characterized by an ergonomic and elegant design; the latest innovation uses a state-of-the-art system that involves heating the tobacco sticks, thus preventing smoke. Design and innovation, therefore, have the power to have a positive impact on the lives of people who smoke and, collectively, the future of public health. As a company, our priority is clear—to help adult smokers who would otherwise continue to smoke to switch as quickly as possible to potentially less harmful alternatives. To date, more than 6.6 million adult smokers in 44 markets around the world have quit smoking and switched to IQOS—playing an instrumental role in building a smoke-free future.

Philip Morris International: Building a Smoke-Free Future

Axonics® Announces U.S. Food & Drug Administration Approves Use of Full-Body MRI for Pivotal Study Patients18.6.2019 13:00:00 EESTTiedote

Axonics Modulation Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: AXNX), a medical technology company focused on the development and commercialization of novel implantable sacral neuromodulation (“SNM”) devices for the treatment of urinary and bowel dysfunction, today announced the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (“FDA”) approved the use of full-body magnetic resonance imaging (“MRI”) using 1.5 Tesla MRI scanners for clinical study patients implanted with the Axonics System. The approval was a result of a supplement filed by Axonics with the FDA under the Investigational Device Exemption (“IDE”) regarding the Company’s ARTISAN-SNM 129-patient pivotal clinical study. The FDA concluded that Axonics provided sufficient data to support full-body MRIs. Raymond W. Cohen, CEO of Axonics, commented, “Allowing full-body MRI scans for our clinical study patients means that none will have to undergo an explant of their neurostimulator device should they require an MRI. We view this as a very positive step by the FD

Norsk Titanium Marks Milestone in Additive Manufacturing18.6.2019 11:00:00 EESTTiedote

Officials with the University of Notre Dame Turbomachinery Laboratory (NDTL), Norsk Titanium (Norsk), Pratt & Whitney and TURBOCAM International announce the continuation of testing of an additively manufactured integrally bladed rotor (IBR). Building on initial testing completed in 2018, this next phase of testing examines the dynamic properties of the IBR. Manufactured using Norsk’s revolutionary Rapid Plasma Deposition™ (RPD™) process, the IBR was inspected to the same quality specifications used in Pratt & Whitney’s current turbomachinery components. The tests are being conducted at NDTL’s world-class turbomachinery test facility in South Bend, Indiana. After completion of the initial testing, where the IBR met 100% of all design, speed and pressure ratio test points, the current test program looks at low and high cycle fatigue characteristics of the IBR. Testing will include multiple acceleration/deceleration cycles and investigate synchronous vibration effects on the additively m

Hansol Paper and Iconex Announce Mutual Decision to Withdraw from Agreement Governing Sale of Schades and R+S to Iconex18.6.2019 11:00:00 EESTTiedote

Iconex and Hansol Paper announced today that the companies are withdrawing from their definitive agreement signed November 2, 2018, under which Iconex would have acquired Schades and R+S from Hansol Paper. This decision, reached by mutual agreement between the parties, is due to the ruling of The United Kingdom’s Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) to move the approval process for this transaction to Phase 2. This allows the UK CMA an additional six months to reach a decision, which was deemed to be too long of a delay by both parties. The parties believe that the proposed transaction met the relevant legal criteria for approval in the UK, and that it was in the best interests of our customers, employees and the marketplace in the United Kingdom and beyond. This UK CMA decision was unexpected by both parties given that the European Commission cleared the deal earlier this spring. Like elsewhere in Europe, the UK market is highly competitive with a significant number of players. “Th
