Cerved Rating Agency ha confermato il rating B1.2 a Battistella Company S.r.l

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 15 febbraio 2020

La holding finanziaria e capogruppo dell’omonima realtà di Treviso, riconducibile alla famiglia Battistella, dalla fine degli anni Sessanta produce e commercializza arredamento giorno e notte a marchio “Novamobili”, nonchè camerette e soluzioni per casa e ufficio con i brand “Nidi” e “Cinquanta3”. L’agenzia di rating europea che fa capo al Gruppo Cerved, infatti, ha collocato il Gruppo Battistella in un’area di solvibilità.Dai dati di pre-chiusura 2019 emergono ricavi consolidati pari a 104 milioni di euro, in crescita rispetto ai 97,8 milioni del 2018, grazie soprattutto a un aumento dei volumi, a fronte di un sostanziale mantenimento dei livelli di marginalità (Ebitda margin 12% circa). Per il 2020 si stimano ricavi in crescita a 114 milioni di euro e un miglioramento delle marginalità, trainato dall’ampliamento dell’offerta con prodotti a maggior valore aggiunto. Nell’ultimo triennio la capacità di generare costantemente flussi di cassa attraverso l’attività operativa ha consentito al Gruppo di finanziare le Capex senza ricorrere a risorse esterne. Una migliore gestione del circolante, che si è tradotta in minori utilizzi delle linee a breve termine, ha determinato una contrazione della Posizione Finanziaria Netta (PFN) al 31/12/19 a 35,4 milioni di euro (40,9 milioni al 31/12/2018), trend atteso anche nel 2020.

Emerson Named ‘Industrial IoT Company of the Year’ for Third Year in a Row

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 5 gennaio 2020

Emerson (NYSE: EMR), a global automation technology and engineering company, has been named the “Industrial IoT Company of the Year” by IoT Breakthrough for an unprecedented third consecutive year.The honor recognizes Emerson’s commitment to helping customers in industries such as chemical, life sciences, power, and oil and gas define and execute a practical and successful path to digital transformation. Emerson recently introduced a new, dedicated digital transformation business that combines Emerson’s leading sensing technology, operational analytics and broad services capabilities to deliver targeted digital solutions to customer challenges.
IoT Breakthrough, which received more than 3,700 nominations for the 2020 competition, recognizes companies, technologies and products worldwide that set themselves apart in IoT categories ranging from industrial and enterprise, to consumer and connected home. Winners are selected by a panel of senior-level professionals experienced in the IoT space, including journalists, analysts and technology executives.Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) capabilities can enable a step change in performance, but many companies lack a clear path to get there. A recent survey by Emerson showed more than 70% of companies do not have a vision for data analytics with a clearly defined roadmap to success. Emerson’s new digital transformation business brings together critical resources, along with its existing expertise in consulting, project execution, smart sensor technologies, data management and analytics, to help manufacturers develop and implement pragmatic digital transformation strategies.“The IIoT space is crowded and can be confusing, so the goal of this organization is to help customers achieve measurable business improvement through a focused strategy and relevant technologies,” said Stuart Harris, group president for Emerson’s digital transformation business. “This award reinforces our leadership with capabilities that are proven to deliver measurable results.”To help customers realize the promise of digital transformation, Emerson’s Plantweb™ digital ecosystem is highly scalabe, enabling companies to focus on priority areas with a practical roadmap tailored to their business needs and readiness. This is critical because, according to the same Emerson survey, only 26% of respondents are scaling digital transformation pilots, hindering the potential of new technologies to enable widescale improvement.Emerson continues expanding its Plantweb capabilities through strategic partnerships, investments and innovation, building the industry’s most comprehensive operational analytics portfolio. Together, these dedicated resources are helping guide customers to the right digital transformation strategy and programs that accelerate Top Quartile performance.

Murata: Notice of Acquisition of MIRAISENS, a 3DHaptics Company

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 1 gennaio 2020

Murata Manufacturing Co., Ltd. (TOKYO: 6981) (ISIN: JP3914400001) and MIRAISENS, Inc. (head office: Tsukuba City, Ibaraki Prefecture; CEO: Natsuo Koda; hereafter “MIRAISENS”), which offers haptic solutions technology using 3DHaptics technology*1, have signed an agreement for MIRAISENS to become a wholly-owned subsidiary of Murata Manufacturing. However, the specific terms and conditions of this agreement have not been disclosed. Demand for tactile experiences has been rising in various markets in recent years. Such markets include the entertainment sector, in which realistic gaming experiences are expected due to the spread of virtual reality and the coming expansion of 5G, and the medical sector, which requires tactile feedback for patients during remote treatment.MIRAISENS is developing 3DHaptics technology based on “Illusionary Haptics*2,” the world’s first haptic technology established on a neuroscientific basis by the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (Tsukuba head office: Tsukuba City, Ibaraki Prefecture; president: Ryoji Chubachi; hereafter “AIST”).2 Discovered for the first time in the world by Dr. Norio Nakamura at AIST. By generating illusions in the human brain through dermal stimuli, this technology creates a mental illusion.
MIRAISENS’s haptic solutions technology differs from conventional technology based on physical engineering, and lets humans perceive various textures and tactile sensations by generating illusions in the brain through specific stimulation patterns on the skin.
For example, this technology can make it seem as if one were actually feeling the softness or texture of objects expressed as digital content in VR games. MIRAISENS is achieving these outstanding product characteristics with small and low-cost hardware through its original programming and housing design.Through this acquisition, Murata Manufacturing aims to offer original products and services by combining the device design technology it has cultivated in its sensor and actuator business with the haptic solutions technology owned by MIRAISENS.

Imbed Biosciences Reveals New Brand Identity for Company and Flagship Product

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 11 dicembre 2019

Imbed Biosciences Inc. (Imbed), a privately-held biotech company emerging as a leader in the development of advanced therapies for burns, chronic ulcers, and surgical wounds, announced today the launch of its new corporate and product brand identities, redesigned logos, and websites. These changes come at a time when the company is seeing wider clinical adoption of its novel FDA-cleared next-generation antimicrobial matrix product, Microlyte® Matrix.
Microlyte® is made with bioresorbable polymers and a patented antimicrobial silver nanotechnology. Its ultrathin form factor – thinner than a human hair – allows the matrix to intimately conform to the underlying wound bed, kill bacteria hiding in deep wound tissue, and prevent biofilm colonization. The matrix is ultimately absorbed into the body, eliminating painful removal. “In the last year, Microlyte® Matrix has experienced increased usage in settings across the healthcare spectrum,” said Jeff Dalsin, PhD, Vice President of Products. “The new brand identity for Microlyte® reinforces it as the ‘go-to’ product for the management of all surgical, traumatic, and chronic wounds. The refreshed Imbed logo and color scheme speak to the company’s vision to build advanced therapies in the broad area of controlled drug delivery.” The newly redesigned website features easy-to-navigate pages for both patients and healthcare professionals with information appropriate for each audience. “We want Microlyte® website to be an educational resource for both patients and clinicians,” said Dalsin.
Imbed partnered with the team at Altabos, a Cincinnati firm, to build the brand. “The new branding represents a significant step forward in the commercial life of the company and its products. I am thrilled with the outcome of this effort and expect it to be well-received in the marketplace,” noted co-founder and CEO, Ankit Agarwal, PhD.

AM Best Assigns Credit Ratings to National Insurance Company

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 20 ottobre 2019

AM Best has assigned a Financial Strength Rating of B- (Fair) and a Long-Term Issuer Credit Rating of “bb-” to National Insurance Company (NIC) (Jordan). The outlook assigned to these Credit Ratings (ratings) is positive.The ratings reflect NIC’s balance sheet strength, which AM Best categorises as adequate, as well as its adequate operating performance, limited business profile and marginal enterprise risk management.The positive outlooks reflect AM Best’s expectation that NIC’s risk-adjusted capitalisation will improve from 2019 onward, benefiting from internal capital generation. In addition, AM Best views positively recent actions taken by the company’s management to improve the reserving adequacy of its motor book and reduce its asset risk exposure.The company’s balance sheet strength assessment is underpinned by very strong risk-adjusted capitalisation in 2018, as measured by Best’s Capital Adequacy Ratio (BCAR), which is expected to return to the strongest level. Whilst the company’s asset base is exposed heavily to the high financial system risk in Jordan, its investment portfolio is weighted toward liquid asset classes such as bank deposits and fixed-income securities. In the medium term, the company plans further divestment of some of its real estate holdings, which in 2018, accounted for approximately 12% of its capital base. Offsetting factors in AM Best’s balance sheet strength assessment include the company’s small capital base and moderate dependence on reinsurance for large risks.NIC has generated positive operating earnings over recent years, with the five-year (2014-2018) weighted average combined ratio of 94.3% and return on equity of 8.8%. However, its underwriting results deteriorated markedly in 2018, due to the weak performance of its motor and medical segments, which contributed to the company reporting a combined ratio of 110.3% and a net operating loss of JD 0.9 million. NIC’s management has taken steps to reverse this trend by pruning its underwriting portfolio and strengthening its reserves, which AM Best expects to support technical profits going forward. At half-year 2019, the company reported improved performance with profit after tax of JD 0.4 million and a combined ratio of approximately 98%.AM Best’s assessment of NIC’s business profile as limited reflects its relatively small size and concentration to Jordan’s intensely competitive insurance market, where it maintains a 3.6% market share (based on total market premiums in 2018). NIC’s risk management framework is developing, and AM Best views its risk management capability to be marginal relative to its risk profile.
