GOFORE PLC STOCK EXCHANGE RELEASE INSIDE INFORMATION 7 MAY 2021 AT 16.45 EETGofore Plc's Business Review 1 – 30 April 2021: Growth continued in AprilGofore Plc’s net sales in April 2021 amounted to EUR 8.5 million (2020: EUR 6.4 million). At the end of the period, the group employed a total of 791 persons (596 persons).CEO Mikael Nylund comments: “Net sales in April amounted to EUR 8.5 million, totalling a growth of more than 30% from the previous year. Our growth strategy has bitten well recently, producing growth both organically and through acquisitions. From the customer front, I would like to highlight the agreement signed in April with DigiFinland Oy on the implementation of artificial intelligence enabled chatbot software platform. The implementation is part of the national AuroraAI programme, and its implementation phase in 2021-2022. We have been part of the programme since its beginning. We have been excited about the opportunities offered by the application of artificial intelligence to develop people-driven services. In the implementation of the platform, we will be able to utilise our extensive expertise in agile software development and service design, as well as in artificial intelligence and cloud technology. The value of the agreement is approximately EUR 1.4 million over a two-year agreement period (1 + 1 year option). Our cooperation with the City of Helsinki's Education division deepens. Our experts are strongly involved in the pilot project launched in May, which directs city’s services to the early childhood education division. The aim of the project is to obtain information from families about their possible day care needs, and based on this information to optimise services to suit families when the need for day care arises. The project is a direct continuation of the development of the information system for electronic services that we have previously carried out in the so-called ASTI project. The pilot project will initially last until the end of 2021, after which the further development of the pilot will be decided. The value of the agreement is approximately EUR 0.61 million this year. In April, we announced the share issue of new 1,000,000 shares to eligible international and Finnish institutional investors. As a result of the issue, we raised EUR 19 million to support the execution of the company's growth strategy. A key part of Gofore's growth strategy will continue to be growing through acquisitions, alongside strong organic growth. The six acquisitions we have completed so far have successfully boosted our growth and supported the development of our service offering towards a holistic offering that supports our customers in their digital transformation. The share issue will enable us to continue this effective strategy, in the future also in markets outside Finland. For the share issue, our second target was to make a controlled change to the company's owner base. The arrangement really interested the international investors we were looking for. More than 75% of the shares offered went outside Finland. We believe that the expanded owner base will serve the company's growth well in the future. Also April was an eventful month and we estimate the pace to continue as such. During the beginning of the year, we have succeeded in further increasing the number of our personnel. Billing rate improvement can also further improve performance.” In the Business Reviews, the monthly number of employees and net sales with comparable information is published. The reviews also include other key indicators that further facilitate monitoring of the company's growth strategy and comparisons between different periods. Reporting has been supplemented with the Full Time Equivalent (FTE) figure as well as subcontracting FTEs. Additionally, in the monthly Business Reviews for the quarter ending in March and September, the company publishes the Group's EBITA, adjusted EBITA and adjusted EBITA-% as well as corresponding figures for the same period in the previous year. The figures are unaudited. The table is updated as the year progresses.

Pfizer Inc and German partner BioNTech SA have filed for a full approval for their COVID-19 vaccine, which is now authorized only for emergency use, the drugmakers said on Friday. A nod by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration will make it the first approved COVID-19 shot and likely help ease hesitancy by raising confidence in the vaccine as an approval will be backed by longer-term data. The Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine was the first to be authorized in the United States for emergency use in December based on two months of safety data for a 44,000-person clinical trial.

Sterling rose versus the dollar and euro on Friday and was on track for weekly gains against both, as disappointing U.S. job data added pressure on the dollar, while traders watched for British local and regional election results. The pound rose 0.5% in minutes, to a one week high of $1.3972 versus the dollar after data from the Labor Department showed U.S. employers hired far fewer workers than expected in April. Of most interest to sterling traders is the Scottish election, where the pro-independence ruling Scottish National Party has vowed to call another referendum on breaking away from the United Kingdom if it wins a majority of seats.

A post-mortem examination gave Maria Jane Rawlings’s preliminary cause of death as neck compression and possible blunt force head trauma.
MINNEAPOLIS — Three former Minneapolis police officers involved in George Floyd’s arrest and death appeared in federal court Friday, following a grand jury indictment. Thomas Lane, Tou Thao and J. Kueng appeared via videoconference in U.S. District Court in Minneapolis. The charges against them were not read in open court, but a grand jury was investigating whether they and former officer Derek Chauvin violated Floyd’s civil rights. Chauvin was not part of the court appearance. Floyd died May 25 after Chauvin pressed a knee against his neck to hold him on the ground. Chauvin was convicted last month on state charges of murder and manslaughter in Floyd’s death and is in Minnesota’s only maximum-security prison as he awaits sentencing. The other three former officers face a state trial in August, and they are free on bond. They were allowed to remain free after Friday's federal court appearance. Floyd, 46, died May 25 after Chauvin pinned him to the ground with a knee on his neck, even as Floyd, who was handcuffed, repeatedly said he couldn’t breathe. Kueng and Lane also helped restrain Floyd — state prosecutors have said Kueng knelt on Floyd’s back and Lane held down Floyd’s legs. State prosecutors say Thao held back bystanders and kept them from intervening during the 9 1/2-minute restraint. Chauvin’s attorney, Eric Nelson, argued during his murder trial that Chauvin acted reasonably in the situation and that Floyd died because of underlying health issues and drug use. He has filed a request for a new trial, citing many issues including the judge’s refusal to move the trial due to publicity. Floyd’s arrest and death, which a bystander captured on cellphone video, sparked protests nationwide and widespread calls for an end to police brutality and racial inequities. ___ Balsamo reported from Washington. ___ Find AP’s full coverage of the death of George Floyd at: https://apnews.com/hub/death-of-george-floyd Amy Forliti And Mike Balsamo, The Associated Press

The growth is mainly due to the companies resuming their operations and adapting to the new normal while recovering from the COVID-19 impact, which had earlier led to restrictive containment measures involving social distancing, remote working, and the closure of commercial activities that resulted in operational challenges. The market is expected to reach $7.43 billion in 2025 at a CAGR of 8%.The organic soft drinks market consists of the sale of organic soft drinks and related services. Organic soft drinks are drinks made from fresh organic fruits or vegetables grown on farms without insecticides or pesticides, products made without ionizing radiation and without the use of a wide variety of food additives.Increasing awareness of the benefits of organic foods and beverages have contributed to the growth of the organic soft drink market.Organic soft drinks are made from products produced by organic farming which does not contain artificial flavours and preservatives which contain natural sweetening agents, low calories and high nutritional value.People are becoming more health-conscious and are looking for more organic food products that they feel are healthier and safer for the environment.According to a report by Mintel in October 2019, new launches in the food and beverage industry which are certified organic have seen growth from 6% in 2009 to 10% in 2019.According to the organic trade association (OTA) organic food sector report of 2019, organic food sales rose 5.9% to $47.9 billion, outstripping 2.3% of overall food sales. The increased awareness of the benefits of organic foods has helped in the growth of the organic soft drinks market.The high cost of organic products including soft drinks acts as a hindrance to the organic soft drink’s markets.The cost of organic soft drinks is high when compared with that of conventional soft drinks.For example, the cost of Galvanina - Cola sparkling soda 350ml is $82.99 for 12 bottles, whereas the cost of 15 bottles of coco-cola 330ml cost around $27. Some of the factors which contribute to the high price of organic soft drinks are that these have no chemicals and need more labour, the gap between demand and supply, post-harvest handling cost, organic certification, cost of covering higher loss, organic food grows more slowly, all of which are a cost to the company that eventually leads to an increase in the product cost. Consequently, the high cost is causing a hindrance to the growth of the organic soft drinks market.The organic soft drinks market covered in this report is segmented by product type into organic soft fruit drinks; organic soda pops; others and by distribution into supermarket; convenience store; online store.Cannabidiol and hemp (CBD) are a new category of drinks that are fast-growing among organic soft drinks.According to the survey of 230 natural brands by New Hope Network in January 2019, 65% of the respondents are ready to launch a new CBD product within a span of 1 to 2 years.Organic soft drink companies are coming up with new CBD drinks especially in the USA, owing to the USA farm bill in 2018 that supports the companies to sell CBD beverages.Sati organics is selling CBD infused soda in 3 flavours.There will be a rise in the CBD drinks in the forecast period.In January 2020, Purity Organic, LLC, an organic food company based in Oakland, CA acquired Dunn’s River Brands, LLC for an undisclosed amount.Through this acquisition Purity Organic will focus on delivering operational excellence, refreshing the Sweet Leaf Brand, and increasing market share across all its portfolio brands.Dunn’s River Brands, LLC, a USA based company that produces and distributes organic beverages.Read the full report: https://www.reportlinker.com/p06070241/?utm_source=GNWAbout ReportlinkerReportLinker is an award-winning market research solution.
