Ediland Meeting 2019

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 19 giugno 2019

Bologna “Una platea numerosa anche per questa edizione, che a dispetto della crisi dimostra la volontà degli imprenditori dell’informazione e dell’industria editoriale di continuare a fronteggiare le difficoltà con creatività e immaginazione, anche mettendo in campo sinergie nuove”. Così Gianni Paolucci, Presidente dell’Asig – promotore dell’incontro odierno insieme alla FIEG e all’Osservatorio Quotidiani Carlo Lombardi’ – nell’aprire i lavori di Ediland Meeting 2019 oggi a Bologna. Fabrizio Carotti, Direttore Generale FIEG, premettendo che “la domanda di informazione rimane sempre molto alta (quasi 40 milioni di italiani ogni mese fruiscono di titoli stampa, fonte Audipress)”, ha ribadito “la necessità di misure urgenti. Tra queste, in particolare, il finanziamento del credito d’imposta per la pubblicità incrementale per il 2019, misura attesa da piccole e medie imprese e professionisti, e interventi sulle regole di pensionamento nel settore, per accompagnare situazioni industriali di ristrutturazione e favorire il ricambio generazionale”.Una panoramica sull’informazione giornalistica nel mondo – con i nuovi attori globali rappresentati dai motori di informazione, di opinione e di intrattenimento e con l’informazione veicolata principalmente attraverso social network –, a cura di Sergio Vitelli (Asig), è stato il primo degli interventi, che si è chiuso con alcune “good news” dall’estero, come le sinergie tra editori basate su nuovi concetti di collaborazione e di creatività nella produzione di diversi, efficaci, format di informazione, spesso anche personalizzata. Alcune “good news” anche dall’Italia a partire dalla stabilizzazione del calo delle vendite, che da un valore di circa il 15% si sta assestando intorno al 5%, fino a iniziative editoriali originali quali Freeda, tutta informazione sul femminile e tutta online. Per quanto riguarda l’industria dei media in Italia e nel mondo, il trend rimane per il momento quello della concentrazione delle imprese, in USA in atto in modo sempre più veloce.Ediland Meeting – quest’anno con il titolo “Verso il futuro: best practice e strategie per una nuova visione” – è un evento annuale, che richiama i professionisti dell’industria italiana dei quotidiani a confrontarsi sui temi più attuali dell’editoria giornalistica: trends internazionali, mercato pubblicitario, riorganizzazione dei modelli produttivi (anche attraverso nuovi progetti grafici), prospettive di un contratto nazionale poligrafico immaginato in un’ottica di Filiera, ruolo delle relazioni sindacali oggi, riorganizzazione dei modelli produttivi dei quotidiani, fino all’andamento dell’industria della stampa quotidiana. Anche in questa edizione, i rappresentanti di importanti centri stampa hanno condiviso le loro best practice per gestire i cambiamenti nell’organizzazione produttiva.L’evoluzione del lavoro nell’industria editoriale – e le sue prospettive in una logica di Filiera – è stato oggetto di una tavola rotonda, moderata da Alberto Di Giovanni (Asig), alla quale hanno partecipato Franco Capparelli (FIEG), Paolo Polidori (Asig), Massimo Medugno (Assocarta), Pietro Lironi (Assografici), Roberta Mussu (UIL Comunicazione, Giulia Guida e Luigi Pezzini (Fistel CISL). È emersa una convergenza sull’opportunità rappresentata dalla possibilità di addivenire ad un contratto di Filiera – che includa le categorie dei lavoratori poligrafici, grafici e cartario-cartotecnici – quale ulteriore strumento per fronteggiare la crisi del settore. Questo sia per cogliere l’occasione di semplificare le singole normative contrattuali, sia per poter avere un interlocutore unico nei confronti dei soggetti istituzionali, al fine di rappresentare le problematiche dell’intera Filiera.
Non poteva mancare un focus sul mercato pubblicitario, illustrato da Massimo Martellini (Presidente FCP-Federazione Concessionarie Pubblicità). Gli indicatori, anche se evidenziano una leggera ripresa nei primi mesi dell’anno, stanno risentendo di un momento di marcata incertezza politica. Le aziende dichiarano una riduzione della fiducia di ben 4 punti percentuali. Un livello che non può non destare una certa preoccupazione.
Dati, numeri e indicatori-chiave di questo importante settore industriale sono stati anche quest’anno raccolti nello studio “Rapporto 2019 sull’industria dei Quotidiani in Italia”, realizzato dall’Osservatorio Quotidiani ‘Carlo Lombardi’ e distribuito nell’occasione. I suoi esiti – su vendite, pubblicità, panorama internazionale, occupazione e retribuzione poligrafiche, rete produttiva, anagrafe delle imprese – sono stati restituiti nella presentazione di Alberto Di Giovanni, Presidente dell’Osservatorio, Il Rapporto, così come i materiali presentati nel convegno, saranno disponibili sul sito dell’ASIG, http://www.ediland.it.

Altai Capital Responds to Amber Road’s Postponement of Annual Meeting

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 20 aprile 2019

Altai Capital Management, L.P. (“Altai Capital”), one of the largest shareholders of Amber Road, Inc. (NYSE: AMBR) (“Amber Road” or, the “Company”), today issued the following statement regarding the Company’s sudden announcement that it will postpone the 2019 Annual Meeting of Stockholders (the “Annual Meeting”), which was originally scheduled for May 7, 2019, by more than a month to June 18, 2019.“The unexplained decision of Amber Road’s Board to postpone the Annual Meeting appears to us to be a clear attempt to further entrench the Board and avoid accountability. We believe investors deserve the opportunity to voice, without delay, their frustration at the strategic missteps of the Company’s leadership. By delaying the shareholders’ right to elect directors at the appropriate meeting time, we believe the Company is perpetuating the pattern of self-serving actions and value destruction that have characterized Amber Road to date. We see no valid purpose for postponing the Annual Meeting and question the Board’s decision to do so only days before the scheduled date and after proxies have already been delivered to shareholders. In the absence of any explanation, we can only conclude that the Board is trying to buy more time to gather support they do not believe they have. As we have stated all along, Amber Road’s Board is in critical need of improvement—fresh, independent minds are essential to hold management accountable, to properly explore strategic alternatives and to provide shareholders with the transparency they deserve. This Board’s delay tactics only reinforce our concerns, serving as an acute reminder that the Company’s current Board, in our view, prioritizes its desire to stay in office over respecting the rights of its shareholders. To the extent that the current Board is deliberating on material decisions, we strongly believe that such deliberations should be conducted by a new, duly elected Board best-positioned to represent the best interests of all shareholders.

ERYTECH Presents Findings at European Red Cell Research Society Meeting

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 15 marzo 2019

LYON, France and CAMBRIDGE, Mass., (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — ERYTECH Pharma (Euronext Paris: ERYP – Nasdaq: ERYP), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company developing innovative therapies by encapsulating drug substances inside red blood cells, announced that an oral presentation entitled “Comprehensive proteomic profiling of erythrocytes following hypotonic dialysis-based drug encapsulation process“ will be presented today at the 22nd meeting of the European Red Cell Research Society (ERCS) in Ascona, Switzerland. A poster highlighting the results of this work will also be presented at the ERCS Meeting and will be available on the Company’s website at http://www.erytech.com after March 11, 2019.The lead investigational therapeutic produced using the Company’s ERYCAPS® encapsulation process, eryaspase, consisting of the enzyme L-asparaginase encapsulated inside donor-derived red blood cells, is currently being evaluated in the Phase 3 TRYbeCA-1 trial in metastatic pancreatic cancer. In an earlier 141 patient randomized Phase 2b trial of eryaspase in combination with chemotherapy for the treatment of second-line metastatic pancreatic cancer, significant improvements in overall survival and progression free survival were observed versus chemotherapy alone with no apparent increase in toxicity2.
The erythrocyte proteomic profiling study being presented at the meeting was performed with the participation of the 3P5 Proteomic Platform (at the Paris-Descartes University, France) specialized in high-performance mass spectrometry protein identification and microanalysis. With the exception of L-asparaginase, profiling analysis revealed no significant difference in the proteomic landscape when comparing packed RBCs, ERYCAPS®-processed RBCs without enzyme, and ERYCAPS®-processed RBCs encapsulating L-asparaginase.These results confirm the notion that the ERYCAPS® process does not significantly alter the properties of RBCs and that apart from the encapsulated drug substance, RBC-based therapeutics produced using this process have similar characteristics to that of unprocessed packed RBCs.
ERYTECH plans to advance candidates using the ERYCAPS® platform and to explore the field of RBC-based therapeutics, building on these proteomic results and future findings regarding RBC biology.
