    · *Asia sees red as major indexes decline across the board.*
    · *Investor confidence is evaporating as quickly as it appeared earlier this week.*
    · *Canada arrests Huawei CFO for extradition to the US.*

    Pacific-Asia equities are red across the board for Thursday as investor sentiment continues to sour further, and traders are punishing the major indices in the Asian market window, pummeling Japanese and Chinese bourses, while Australia remains surprisingly upright despite a big miss for the Aussie Trade Balance. Canada's arrest of Huawei's global CFO is also expected to see a rise in trade tensions between the US and China, and the move is poorly timed as the two nations were supposed to begin sitting down to a three-month period of trade negotiations.

    Japan is steeping in the red for Thursday, with the Nikkei 225 down over -2.5% into 21,360 while Tokyo's Topix index sees declines of -2.25%. China is similarly in retreat, with Hong Kong's Hang Seng index declining -2.60% while Shanghai's CSI 300 see declines near -1.95%.

    Emerging markets are also seeing weakness with the MSCI broad Asia-Pacific (excluding Japan) index in the red for -1.10%, but Australia's ASX 200 is down a scant -2.0%, a surprising turnout given the Aussie's $600 million miss on Trade Balance figures early in the day.

    Trade war fears and increasing signs of a global economic slowdown have left Pacific-Asia investors risk-averse, and the souring mood surrounding the Trump-Xi tariff truce is doing little to help as traders brace for reheating trade tensions in the near future.

    · *Study should further enhance competitive positioning of MagnetOs*

    · *Sheep animal model is one of the most relevant preclinical models and believed to be predictive of outcomes in humans*
    · *12-week fusion rate with MagnetOs granules & putty 92% & 83% versus autograft 75%*

    SCHLIEREN (ZURICH), Switzerland, Dec. 06, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Kuros Biosciences (SIX: KURN) today announced the publication of data from a clinically-relevant preclinical model comparing MagnetOs with autologous bone in instrumented posterolateral spinal fusion in sheep. Utilizing multiple assessments for fusion, the study concluded that MagnetOs is a suitable alternative to autograft when used as a standalone graft.

    The publication, which is entitled "Biphasic calcium phosphate with submicron surface topography in an Ovine model of instrumented posterolateral spinal fusion” was included in the December issue JOR Spine, an open-access Orthopaedic Research Society (ORS) journal.

    Joost de Bruijn, Chief Executive Officer of Kuros, said: “This latest study demonstrates early bone healing and physiologically-appropriate graft resorption for MagnetOs in this clinically-relevant model of posterolateral spinal fusion and adds to the growing body of evidence proving that MagnetOs is a reliable alternative to autologous bone graft.”

    Professor Bill Walsh, University of New South Wales, Australia, who was principal investigator of the study said: “I’ve investigated many of the leading synthetic bone grafts in this model and, in my experience, MagnetOs leads to the most compelling fusion outcomes of all the grafts I’ve tested.”

    *About the study*
    MagnetOs Granules and MagnetOs Putty were implanted standalone and compared to autograft bone. Twenty-five adult, female Merino sheep underwent posterolateral spinal fusion at L2-3 and L4-5 levels with instrumentation. After 6, 12, and 26 weeks, outcomes were evaluated by manual palpation, range of motion testing, micro-computed tomography, histology and histomorphometry. Fusion assessment by manual palpation 12 weeks after implantation revealed 100% fusion rates in all treatment groups. Similarly, the three treatment groups showed a statistically significant decrease in lateral bending at the fusion levels at 12 weeks and 26 weeks compared to the 6-week time-point, which further confirmed spinal fusion. No significant differences in range of motion were observed between the treatment groups at any of the time-points investigated. Histological assessment at 12 weeks showed fusion rates of 75%, 92%, and 83% for autograft, MagnetOs Granules and MagnetOs Putty, respectively. The fusion rates were further increased 26 weeks post-implantation. Similar trends of bone growth were observed by histomorphometry.

    MagnetOs promotes local bone formation equivalent to current gold standard, autograft. A substantial number of clinically relevant and predictive studies have demonstrated its equivalence to the current gold standard (patient’s own bone, which may not be available in sufficient quantities and/or involves morbidity, costs and pain associated with its harvesting from another healthy site of the patient’s body). MagnetOs is a bone graft comprising biphasic calcium phosphate with an advanced submicron surface topography that directs bone formation after implantation. With its unique submicron surface topography, MagnetOs preferentially directs early wound healing toward the bone-forming pathway, resulting in an osteoinductive claim in Europe. MagnetOs is available as granules and as a putty formulation.

    *US indications statement*
    MagnetOs is an implant intended to fill bony voids or gaps of the skeletal system, i.e., posterolateral spine. MagnetOs must be used with autograft as a bone graft extender in the posterolateral spine. These osseous defects may be surgically created or the result of traumatic injury to the bone and are not intrinsic to the stability of the bony structure.

    *EU indications statement*
    MagnetOs is intended for use as bone void filler for voids and gaps that are not intrinsic to the stability of the bony structure. MagnetOs is indicated for use in the treatment of surgically created osseous defects or osseous defects resulting from traumatic injury to the bone. MagnetOs is intended to be packed into bony voids or gaps of the skeletal system (i.e. extremities, spine, cranial, mandible, maxilla and pelvis) and may be combined with autogenous bone. MagnetOs should not be used to treat large defects that in the surgeon’s opinion would fail to heal spontaneously. In load bearing situations, MagnetOs is to be used in conjunction with internal or external fixation devices.

    On 21 November 2018, Nyrstar NV ("Nyrstar" or the "Company", together with its subsidiaries, the "Group") announced that it had signed a binding term sheet with Trafigura Pte Ltd ("Trafigura") under which Trafigura would extend USD650 million of committed liquidity in favour of Nyrstar Sales & Marketing AG ("NSM").  Nyrstar is pleased to announce that this has been documented into a New USD650 million Trade Finance Framework Agreement (the "New USD650m Agreement") which has now been signed. 

    The USD220 million interim prepayment agreement equally announced on 21 November 2018 will now be replaced and refinanced by the New USD650m Agreement. 

    The New USD650m Agreement comprises a USD450 million committed revolving prepayment facility (L+5% p.a.) and revolving open account and revolving letter of credit guarantee facilities totalling USD200 million.  The agreement matures on 30 June 2020.

    The New USD650m Agreement will benefit from a comprehensive guarantee and security package comprising financial guarantees from 12 Group companies that are (together with NSM) currently the guarantors/issuers under the Group's bonds pledges over shares of certain subsidiaries; and pledges over some assets as published on 21 November 2018. It contains customary financial covenants, events of default and other undertakings. The New USD650m Agreement incorporates a right to participate for up to 50% of any future financing or recapitalisation arrangements entered into by the Group, for a period of two years after the date when the new facility becomes effective.

    NSM's existing USD250 million working capital facility agreement with Trafigura, which was originally entered into in May 2016 as amended from time to time, will be cancelled and replaced by the New USD650m Agreement.

    The New USD650m Agreement significantly strengthens the Group's liquidity position following certain working capital outflows experienced in the period.  Nyrstar, together with its advisers, will now continue to focus on the previously announced and ongoing capital structure review.

    Risk-off sentiment remains the main underlying theme in Asia across the financial markets this Thursday, mainly driven by the renewed tensions between the US and China after the Chinese company, Huawei, Chief Financial Officer (CFO) was arrested by Canada on the US” request and faces extradition to the US. In response to this, China is enraged as the Global Times reported that the US and Canada have no right to detain a Chinese citizen.

    As a result, the safe-haven assets got a boost at the expense of the risk-assets took, with the Aussie hit the hardest amid a sharp drop in the Australian trade surplus. The Kiwi followed suit as a sell-off in the Asian equities and oil prices added to the weight on the prices. The Yen, on the other hand, outperformed that pulled the USD/JPY pair back towards the 112.50 level while gold prices on Comex consolidated in multi-week tops below the 1250 upside barrier. Meanwhile, the US dollar traded broadly subdued, pressured by the inversion of the Treasury yields.

    Core Lithium Ltd (ASX:CXO) has intersected substantial new spodumene mineralised pegmatites from recent drilling at its Finniss Lithium Project in the Northern Territory. The company is awaiting drill assays from this exploration/resource drilling and will aim to complete the resource assessment process for each of Carlton, Hang Gong and Lees-Booths Link. Core is expected to reveal substantially expanded resources for the project over the next two months. READ: Core Lithium releases maiden lithium resource for Sandras, shares rise Given the expected material change in the resource, Core has formed the view that the definitive feasibility study (DFS) process needs to recognise this in order to deliver an optimal outcome in terms of the size and scheduling of the mining operations. Core managing director Stephen Biggins said: “It was a difficult decision to defer the release of the DFS, however the positive exploration results and expected substantial mineral resource increase meant that we would have released a study that would have dated very quickly, and would not reflect the project we believe Core will ultimately develop. READ: Core Lithium reveals high-grade lithium hits at Finniss project ahead of resource update “In the context of the recently announced $1.58 billion deal to sell half the Wodgina Lithium Project from Mineral Resources (ASX:MIN) to Albemarle, Core is understandably keen to maximise the resources and valuation potential of the Finniss Lithium Project. “Given we are not expecting regulatory and other approvals before the start of Q2 2019, we believe it makes much more sense to incorporate the new information and ensure that we have the best project possible before we commit shareholder’s funds to development. “We look forward to the release of the mineral resource upgrades over the coming weeks and our plans to be Australia’s next lithium producer.” Capital raising Core’s binding offtake partner Yahua and non-binding offtake partner Ruifu, being two of China’s largest lithium producers, have committed to $1.5 million of new equity at 5 cents per share to accelerate resource drilling programs of the recently discovered prospects and delivery of the expanded scope of the DFS. Both Ruifu and Core continue to work diligently towards execution of binding agreements, with the expectation of completion in Q1 2019. In addition to the $1.5 million strategic placement, Core is finalising plans for the balance of additional new equity up to a further $2.5 million to be raised on the same terms.

    Matthew Hassan, Research Analyst at Westpac, points out that Australian retailers reported a 0.3% lift in sales in October, in line with market expectations but better than Westpac's forecast of a 0.1% gain.

    *Key Quotes*

    “While sales growth is still not strong its looking a touch better than it did mid year, annual growth having lifted from 2.9% in June to 3.6% currently.”

    “The detail shows a more uneven story. By store type, the October month saw a strong rise for clothing (2.6%mth) and a solid 0.6% gain for household goods but mixed results for 'small ticket' discretionary store types – 'other retail' up 0.5% but cafes and restaurants down 0.9%. Basic food posted a 0.2% rise.”

    “Overall, the October retail sales gain is of some relief given yesterday's disappointing September quarter update on wider consumer spending. That said, the softer tone around some 'discretionary' categories and the slowing in NSW add a clear note of caution. Risks still look skewed to the downside as we head into the all important Christmas period.”
