Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte said on Monday he was prepared to send his military ships in the South China Sea to "stake a claim" over oil and mineral resources in the disputed part of the strategic waterway. With some critics complaining Duterte had gone soft by refusing to push Beijing to comply with an arbitration ruling, he said the public can be assured he would assert the country's claims to resources like oil and minerals in the South China Sea. Duterte has sought to build an alliance with China and has been reluctant to confront its leadership, having been promised billions of dollars of loans and investments, much of which have yet to materialise, frustrating nationalists.

Press Release Paris, April 19, 2021 iliad Group employee share offer Up2Share financial release The iliad Group is launching another Up2Share employee share ownership program, aimed at giving its people a stake in the Group’s strategic objectives and business development. On January 25, 2021, iliad’s Board of Directors decided on the principle of carrying out a share issue for employees who are members of iliad Group’s employee stock ownership plans in France (“PEG”) or outside France (“PEGI”), in accordance with Articles L. 3332-18 et seq. of the French Labor Code. The Board set the maximum number of shares to be issued at 296,552, representing 0.5% of the Company’s capital at December 31, 2020. Formulas offered: Employees who are members of the French employee stock ownership plan (PEG) – i.e. employees of the Group’s French entities – will have the choice between two types of investment formula with matching payments by iliad. Both formulas involve the employees' investments in iliad shares being held through specific compartments of the iliad corporate mutual fund (FCPE): a "Standard" formula, under which employees can subscribe for iliad shares at a 25% discount; and a "Leveraged" formula, under which employees are provided with a guarantee covering the original amount of their subscription and a multiple of the “protected” average increase in the iliad share price. In Italy, only the "Standard" formula will be proposed, with employees who are members of the PEGI subscribing directly for the shares at the discounted price. Lock-up period: The shares subscribed for directly, as well as the corporate mutual fund units representing subscribed shares, will be locked up for a period of five years, except in the case of one of the specific events authorizing an early exit. At the end of the lock-up period, the shares held under the "Leveraged" formula will be sold on the open market. Those held under the "Standard" formula, either directly or via a corporate mutual fund, may be kept by the employee shareholders concerned. Exercise of voting rights: Subscriptions for the shares issued under the Up2Share plan will take place via the iliad corporate mutual fund in France and directly by the employees concerned in Italy. The voting rights attached to the shares held via the iliad corporate mutual fund will be exercised by that fund’s Supervisory Board. The voting rights attached to shares held directly will be exercised by the employee shareholder concerned. Provisional timeline: The timeline shown below may change if any events occur that could impact the effective implementation of the overall operation. Reservation period: up to April 16, 2021 Pricing date: scheduled for May 18, 2021 Subscription/revocation period: scheduled for between May 19 and May 23, 2021 Share issue: scheduled for June 15, 2021 Listing of the shares: A request to list the shares on Euronext Paris (ISIN: FR0004035913) will be made when the share issue is carried out. Hedging transactions: The implementation of the financial mechanisms relating to the "Leveraged" formula may require hedging transactions to be carried out by the financial institution that is the counterparty to the swap agreement concerned, both before the share issue takes place and throughout the duration of the “Leveraged” formula. This press release has been issued in accordance with the requirements of Article 223-2 of the AMF’s General Regulations and Article 3.1 of AMF Position-Recommendation DOC-2012-10.

SAN FRANCISCO, April 19, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hagens Berman urges Canoo Inc. f/k/a Hennessy Capital Acquisition Corp. IV (NASDAQ: GOEV) investors with significant losses to submit your losses now. A securities fraud class action has been filed and certain investors may have valuable claims. Class Period: Aug. 18, 2020 – Mar. 29, 2021Lead Plaintiff Deadline: June 1, 2021 Visit: www.hbsslaw.com/investor-fraud/GOEV Contact An Attorney Now: GOEV@hbsslaw.com 844-916-0895 Canoo Inc. (NASDAQ: GOEV) Securities Fraud Class Action: The complaint alleges Canoo misled investors before and after going public through a SPAC closing on Dec. 21, 2020. Specifically, Defendants repeatedly touted a three-pronged strategy to generate revenue and growth: (i) an engineering services segment; (ii) the sales of subscriptions of vehicles to consumers; and (iii) the sale of vehicles to other businesses. Canoo also emphasized its agreements with established OEMs, including with Hyundai for the co-development of a future EV platform In truth, defendants concealed that Canoo (1) had decreased its focus on its plan to sell vehicles to consumers through a subscription model; (2) would de-emphasize its engineering services business; and (3) did not have partnerships with OEMs and no longer engaged in the previously announced partnership with Hyundai. On Mar. 29, 2021, the truth emerged when Canoo abruptly announced its CFO was being replaced, that it would deemphasize its engineering services business, would no longer focus on subscription sales to consumers, and try to make and sell its own vehicles to commercial operators. Moreover, on a call with investors, Canoo’s Chairman characterized senior management’s statements concerning the company’s partnerships as “aggressive” and that “they weren’t at our standard of representation to the public markets.” In response to this news, analyst Roth Capital downgraded the company’s shares from buy to neutral buy and slashed its price target, and the price of Canoo shares crashed. “We’re focused on investors’ losses and proving defendants intentionally misrepresented the viability of Canoo’s business model and business partnerships,” said Reed Kathrein, the Hagens Berman partner leading the investigation.

Health Secretary Matt Hancock said 103 cases of the Indian variant had been identified in the UK.
The latest news on COVID-19 developments in Canada (all times eastern): 1:45 p.m. Nunavut's chief public health officer says all those currently infected with COVID-19 in Iqaluit are adults. Dr. Michael Patterson also says about three-quarters of them are in their 20s and 30s. Nunavut is reporting six new cases of COVID-19, all in Iqaluit, bringing the city's total to 28 cases. Patterson declared an outbreak in the city on April 16, after its first case was reported on April 14. The city of about 8,000 people, the only place in Nunavut with active cases, is under a strict lockdown with schools, non-essential businesses and government offices closed. --- 1:35 p.m. Manitoba is lowering the age eligibility for COVID-19 vaccines. Anyone 40 and over can now get the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine. The change follows similar moves by Ontario and Alberta on the weekend. Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna doses are available for First Nations people in Manitoba aged 34 and up and for others aged 54 and up. The province reported 108 new COVID-19 cases and no new deaths today. --- 1:30 p.m. New Brunswick is reporting nine new cases of COVID-19 today. Health officials say the hard-hit Edmundston region has six new cases while the Moncton, Fredericton and Bathurst areas each have one new case. There are 158 active reported cases in the province and 21 patients are hospitalized with the disease, including eight in intensive care. New Brunswick has administered more than 200,000 doses of COVID-19 vaccine, with 27.5 per cent of the eligible population 16 and over having received at least one dose. --- 1:15 p.m. Nova Scotia is reporting 15 new cases of COVID-19 today and now has 63 active cases. Eight of the cases are in the Halifax area, six are in the eastern zone and one is in the western area of the province. Seven of the 15 cases are related to travel outside of Atlantic Canada, five are close contacts of previously reported cases and three are under investigation.

Rotational workers and truck drivers who arrive in the province will need to isolate until they receive a negative COVID-19 test even if they are vaccinated. --- 11:30 a.m. NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh wants Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to consider invoking the federal Emergencies Act given the dire pandemic outlook in Ontario. In a letter to Trudeau, Singh says such a declaration could help ensure a more co-ordinated delivery of vaccines to those who need them most. Singh says it would also allow workers to prevent the spread of COVID-19 by taking paid sick days and time off to get vaccinated. The NDP leader says in Toronto, the wealthiest neighbourhoods have higher rates of vaccination than neighbourhoods where racialized and working-class people live — areas that have higher levels of COVID-19 positivity. --- 11:20 a.m. Manitobans 40 and older will soon be able to get the Oxford-AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine. A government source has told The Canadian Press the province is lowering the minimum age eligibility following similar moves by Ontario and Alberta.

Currently, the AstraZeneca vaccine in Manitoba is available to those 65 and older and to people between 55 and 64 with certain underlying medical conditions. --- 11:15 a.m. Alberta says residents born in 1981 or earlier will be eligible to get the Oxford-AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine. Premier Jason Kenney announced last night the province would lower the minimum age to receive the shot to 40 from 55. Bookings for the younger age cohort are to start tomorrow. Health Minister Tyler Shandro says lowering the age offers roughly 575,000 more Albertans access to a COVID-19 vaccine. --- 11 a.m. Quebec is reporting 1,092 new COVID-19 cases today and 15 more deaths attributed to the novel coronavirus, including two in the past 24 hours.
