    *Jussi Pesonen, President and CEO, comments on Q3 results:*

    "The third quarter was excellent and sets a new benchmark for our performance. Our customer demand continued to be healthy and we were able to increase sales prices in nearly all businesses. In five of our six business areas, the price increases were sufficient to cover the impact of higher input costs. Our business model continues to deliver results.

    Our sales grew by 6% and comparable EBIT increased by 20% to EUR 420 million. Our comparable EBIT margin reached 15.9% illustrating well our current performance level compared to the first half of the year. Operating cash flow was strong and our balance sheet was practically debt-free at the end of the quarter.

    The biggest improver was UPM Biorefining, which achieved record quarterly earnings. Pulp, Biofuels and Timber all achieved higher prices. Biofuels reached a new level of production after the turnaround shutdown in Q2. However, our pulp deliveries were held back by temporary production issues at the Fray Bentos mill, where thunderstorms caused four production shutdowns during the quarter.

    UPM Communication Papers overcame higher input costs and lower deliveries with higher pricing and reported good, stable earnings. Unfortunate turbine damage and downtime at the Plattling mill caused extra costs, particularly as electricity prices were high. UPM Energy benefitted from the higher electricity prices, and increased its earnings even though dry weather limited our hydropower generation.

    UPM Raflatac and UPM Plywood performed steadily. They were able to raise sales prices and offset the cost increases. Both also encountered some headwind from unfavourable currencies.

    UPM Specialty Papers experienced a negative earnings development despite solid demand. The main reason for this was the continued increase in pulp costs. In label papers we were able to raise prices, but not sufficiently to fully compensate for the increase in pulp costs. In fine papers, prices decreased due to additional market supply in China.

    Our transformative prospects provide us with unique and exciting opportunities for significant long-term earnings growth. In Uruguay, preparations for the potential new world-class pulp mill are proceeding. The rail tendering process is in its final stages and the port concession tendering has started. UPM has submitted the Environmental and Social Impact Study for the mill to the authorities. Engaging in active dialogue with local stakeholders has been an important part of the process. Next we expect tangible progress in infrastructure construction and labour protocols.

    Preparations are also ongoing in our attractive biomolecular businesses. In UPM Biochemicals, we are continuing the basic engineering work for the potential first industrial-scale biochemical refinery in Germany. In UPM Biofuels, we completed the Environmental Impact Assessment for a possible Kotka Biorefinery in Finland and submitted it to the authorities for their final conclusions.

    Overall, UPM is in great shape and ready to grasp the limitless opportunities that bioeconomy offers for value creation and business growth. We believe that growing sustainable businesses can offer solutions to the global challenges such as resource scarcity and climate change. During the quarter, our responsible business conduct as well as our efforts to deliver responsible solutions were recognized by United Nations Global Compact and Dow Jones Sustainability Indices. Our innovations create value and business opportunities for an era when the world is no longer dependent on fossils."

    *Outlook 2018*

    UPM's comparable EBIT is expected to continue growing in 2018 compared with 2017. H2 2018 comparable EBIT is expected to be significantly higher compared with H1 2018.

    The fundamentals for UPM businesses in 2018 are favourable. Sales price increases in 2018 are expected to outweigh the increase in variable costs, compared with 2017.

    The blockchain company will lend its services to implement a high-tech infrastructure to monitor water usage, a pressing issue after the water crisis this year

    SAN FRANCISCO (PRWEB) October 24, 2018

    The severe drought that brought Cape Town - one of the biggest tourist destinations in the world and the legislative capital of South Africa - into the headlines, served as a wake-up call to the growing water crisis afflicting major urban settlements around the world. Governments and municipalities are soliciting the expertise of software development companies to devise ways to sustain their water reserves. HashCash Consultants is one of the first to be enlisted for this service.

    The drought which is said to have been triggered by El Nino two years ago took a toll on agricultural production and economic growth throughout the country, but it was Cape Town's predicament that had it declared a national disaster. The severity of the crisis was evident when the water level behind the Voëlvlei Dam dropped low enough to raise alarm. The government has even been preparing for a Day Zero when all public taps would be switched off in the city as a measure to bring wastage of water under control.

    Apart from global warming, the primary reasons that exacerbated this situation have been recognized as rapid urbanization, a failure to harness rainwater (a large percentage of which flows into the sea), and lack of education on water preservation in the population. Resorting to a blockchain system to plan out ways to tackle these areas of contention streamlines its execution.

    HashCash Consultants is working with regulators to record the rainwater footprint on a decentralized, immutable ledger that can be accessed by all for verification and reference. The platform will take a net-positive approach to track water usage by manufacturing units, housing complexes, and agricultural lands. Currently, Cape Town has a population of 4 million, and auditing their daily water consumption is a huge challenge, and requires a computing base with unlimited storage to prevent system crashes and delayed processing of data. This requirement is also met by blockchain technology.

    The team is focusing on promoting water resilience and is part of the advisory council of projects projected to build new dams. The company also plans to take on board interns during their work there to educate the populace on the application of blockchain to preserve water sources.

    As Cape Town citizens continue to live under strict water regulations, the impact of global warming has reached other shores. Mexico City, Jakarta, Melbourne in Australia, certain cities in India, and some urban settlements in North and South America face threats of running out of drinking water soon. Efforts by the I.T. sector could help alleviate that plight.

    In the wake of increasing scalability of blockchain, software development companies like HashCash Consultants are being sought to customize the technology to optimize the efficiency and profitability of various industries. The ones with impressive track records are often roped in as reliable technology providers to partner with to address crucial environmental issues. Reported by PRWeb 2 hours ago.

Wo Hing’s first order is for more than 50 tonnes of harvested greenlip abalone, estimated to be valued at about US$1.95 million. A monthly delivery schedule has been agreed between OGA and Wo Hing up to the end of December 2019.
