(Bloomberg) -- Volkswagen AG said a robust sales recovery in the second half of last year led to strong annual earnings despite fallout from the Covid-19 pandemic.Operating profit before special items related to the diesel-emissions scandal fell to around 10 billion euros ($12.2 billion) last year, VW said in a statement Friday, from 19.3 billion euros in 2019. Automotive net cash flow shrunk almost in half to about 6 billion euros.Robust demand in China, VW’s largest market, helped the German manufacturer rebound from the coronavirus outbreak forcing the most widespread shutdown of global car production since World War II. Worldwide vehicle deliveries fell 15% to 9.3 million vehicles, but the group gained a small amount of market share as some peers were hit even harder.VW shares reversed earlier losses, rising more than 2% in Frankfurt trading. The automaker will report detailed full-year earnings and provide guidance for 2021 at the end of next month.VW said in November it expects a “transition year” as the pandemic continues to weigh on operations and warned it might not return to pre-crisis financial planning before 2022. The company stuck to its mid-term financial targets for 2025.Chief Executive Officer Herbert Diess is making an aggressive push into electric cars to challenge Tesla Inc., which became the world’s most valuable auto manufacturer by far last year. The namesake VW brand will roll out the ID.4 compact sport-utility vehicle, and the group’s Porsche and Audi luxury brands will expand offerings of their Taycan and e-tron model lines.“We argue that in 2021, VW will rival Tesla as the No. 1 seller of battery-electric vehicles globally,” Timm Schulze-Melander, an auto-industry specialist at Redburn, said in a note Friday. He estimates the group will ship as many as 800,000 fully electric cars to customers, up from 231,000 last year. Tesla narrowly missed its target of 500,000 global deliveries in 2020.(Adds 2019 comparison in the second paragraph.)For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2021 Bloomberg L.P.

President Joe Biden is hiring a group of national security veterans with deep cyber expertise, drawing praise from former defense officials and investigators as the U.S. government works to recover from one of the biggest hacks of its agencies attributed to Russian spies. "It is great to see the priority that the new administration is giving to cyber," said Suzanne Spaulding, director of the Defending Democratic Institutions project at the Center for Strategic and International Studies. Cybersecurity was demoted as a policy field under the Trump administration.
Oslo (Norway), 22 January 2021 – PCI Biotech (OSE: PCIB), a clinical-stage biopharma company developing innovative therapeutics that address significant unmet medical needs in cancer today announced that it will present at the 12th Annual RNA Therapeutics Virtual Conference, a UK based online event taking place February 10-11, 2021. The 2021 conference is set to explore the latest developments in RNA delivery agents and RNA-based therapeutics with the latest case studies on advanced mRNA technologies, oligonucleotide delivery, therapeutic applications and future trends and innovations. PCI Biotech is also a sponsor of the event. On Wednesday, February 10, 2021 at 13:10pm (CET), Dr. Anders Høgset, CSO, will present an overview of PCI Biotech’s proprietary platform technology, focusing on the delivery of RNA molecules, including the most recent data on the use of the fimaNAc delivery technology in the exciting field of RNA based therapies. The presentation slides will be made available through a separate press release around the timing of the presentation and the full presentation will be made available on PCI Biotech’s website (www.pcibiotech.com) under “Scientific publications & presentations” after the event. Contact information: Per Walday, CEO email@example.com Mobile: +47 917 93 429 About PCI Biotech PCI Biotech is a biopharmaceutical late stage clinical development company focusing on development and commercialisation of novel therapies for the treatment of cancer through its innovative photochemical internalisation (PCI) technology platform. PCI is applied to three distinct anticancer paradigms: fimaChem (enhancement of chemotherapeutics for localised treatment of cancer), fimaVacc (T-cell induction technology for therapeutic vaccination), and fimaNAc (nucleic acid therapeutics delivery). Photochemical internalisation induces triggered endosomal release that is used to unlock the true potential of a wide array of therapeutic modalities. The company’s lead programme fimaChem consists of a pivotal study in bile duct cancer, an orphan indication with a high unmet need and without approved products. fimaVacc applies a unique mode of action to enhance the essential cytotoxic effect of therapeutic cancer vaccines, which works in synergy with several other state-of-the-art vaccination technologies. fimaNAc utilises the endosomal release to provide intracellular delivery of nucleic acids, such as mRNA and RNAi therapeutics, thereby addressing one of the major bottlenecks facing this emerging and promising field.

(Bloomberg) -- Germany trimmed its prediction for economic growth this year to 3% due to an extension of coronavirus lockdown restrictions that’s expected to weigh on activity in the first quarter.The government cut its forecast of 4.4% made at the end of October, according to a person familiar with its annual economic report to be published next week. Germany entered a partial shutdown -- including the closing of non-essential stores -- at the start of November and it has since been tightened and extended until at least mid-February.Economy Minister Peter Altmaier is due to present the latest report at a news conference on Wednesday. Europe’s biggest economy has not suffered as much as some countries from the effects of the coronavirus crisis, in part thanks to generous government support.Growth of 3% next year -- which is in line with the Bundesbank’s prediction -- would follow a contraction of 5% in 2020, and most forecasts indicate that the economy will take until 2022 to recover the ground lost because of the pandemic.The International Monetary Fund said this week that Chancellor Angela Merkel’s administration should consider additional aid for companies and maintain support for the labor market to avoid more permanent scars. IMF staff predicted a “choppy” and unevenly distributed rebound that will only strengthen once Covid-19 vaccines have been widely distributed.Investors expressed confidence in Germany’s recovery on Tuesday, with a gauge measuring expectations for the next six months rising to the highest since September -- before a second wave of infections triggered the new curbs.The economy probably avoided a contraction in the fourth quarter, thanks in part to a strong manufacturing sector that isn’t as directly affected by restrictions that have hit restaurants and the travel sector.However, recent indicators suggest it’s struggling to keep up momentum. Private-sector activity effectively stagnated in January, as manufacturing growth and rising goods exports were canceled out by a slump in services.Germany’s updated forecast was reported earlier Friday by Der Spiegel magazine. A spokeswoman for the Economy Ministry declined to comment.For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2021 Bloomberg L.P.

The Senate Finance Committee will vote on Friday on Janet Yellen's nomination for Treasury secretary, an early litmus test of bipartisan support for President Joe Biden's ambitious plans for coronavirus relief, infrastructure investment and tax hikes. Yellen, who would be the first woman to head Treasury after breaking that same barrier as Federal Reserve chair from 2014 to 2018, is highly regarded by both her fellow Democrats and by Republicans. The vote two days after Biden became president is quick by recent standards.
Economic activity in the euro zone shrank significantly in January. Lockdown restrictions to contain the pandemic hit the bloc's dominant service industry particularly hard. Hospitality venues have been forced to close across much of the continent, prompting a sharp contraction in IHS Markit's PMI survey on Friday (Jan 22). Overall the survey, seen as a good guide to economic health, fell further below the 50 mark separating growth from contraction, hitting 47.5 in January. That was down from December's 49.1. Chris Williamson, chief business economist at IHS Markit, said "a double-dip recession for the euro zone economy is looking increasingly inevitable". A PMI covering the service industry dropped to 45.0 from 46.4. But the survey revealed manufacturing remained strong as factories largely remained open. The manufacturing PMI held well above breakeven at 54.7, albeit slight weaker than December's figure. A Reuters poll this week showed the bloc's economy is expected to grow 0.6% this quarter. And will return to its pre-crisis level within two years on hopes the rollout of vaccines will allow a return to some form of normality.
Retail space is a valuable commodity, and once a chain installs Freshpet's refrigerators, it's less likely to give dedicated space for a similar product to one of its competitors. Freshpet is thus well-situated to profit from a booming market. Management recently issued guidance that Freshpet's sales for 2020 would come in at $318.8 million -- a rise of 30% year over year -- and forecast that revenue would more than triple from there to $1 billion by 2025.
This month, the average Social Security recipients will start seeing an extra $20 in their checks. The boost comes courtesy of the 1.3% cost of living adjustment (COLA) that beneficiaries will receive in 2021. Before you even add in the 2021 COLA, the average monthly check for longtime recipients would already be $380 higher.
