    Dublin, Nov. 05, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Global Commercial Vehicle Electrification Potential and Trends, Forecast to 2025" report has been added to *ResearchAndMarkets.com's* offering.

    Drop in Battery Pack Price Below $100/kwh Compounded by Slew of eTruck Product Launches to Capitalise on Subsidies are Poised to Push Electrification in MD & HD Truck Segment to 11.1% by 2025 Translating to 250,000 Market OpportunityGHG emission regulations are ever strengthening in North America, Europe, and China. Climate change concerns among the public is especially propelling the automotive industry to reduce carbon footprint. Countries are looking for options to improve air quality in their communities and to contribute to mitigation of global climate change through electrification.

    This study provides an overview of the key trends in medium commercial vehicle ranging between 6.1 tonnes and 16 tonnes, and heavy commercial vehicle ranging above 16 tonnes segments of global electric truck market from 2016 to 2025. The various factors attracting adoption of electric trucks and the top challenges are studied in brief.

    The study reveals that the Chinese truck market will dominate the electric truck market with aggressive plan of subsidy rollout coupled with deployment of charging infrastructure systems in large scale. China is leading the electrification and contributes to 50% of the global electric truck sales in today's scenario, and the trend is expected to remain the same by 2025.

    North America, mainly Canada and the US, is expected to be the second largest market for electric trucks, having new disruptors emerging from the market. The incentive policies and stringent emission regulations in Europe, North America, and China will motivate the buyers, and the growing consumer demand for electric trucks will be satisfied by the product line-ups planned by OEMs.

    New entrants like Tesla and Nikola are expected to disrupt the North American market, while Chinese manufacturers are eyeing on export markets to uphold the market dominance in terms of electric truck sales volume. The electric powertrain adoption is poised to accelerate post 2020 due to the fall in battery prices.

    This study provides a summary on the available drivetrain technologies in the industry and future adoptions. By 2025, the penetration of electrification is expected to be 28.5% in medium-duty trucks and 6.5% in heavy-duty trucks in China. In North America, the penetration of electric powertrain is expected to be 8.3% and 12.3% in medium- and heavy-duty trucks, respectively.

    Several Western European countries are planning to adopt the ICE ban from 2025-2030, with expanding low-emission zones planning to ban diesel and gasoline engines. The new GHG emission regulations in Europe are pushing hard to achieve CO2 and fuel economy standards to satisfy EISA lead-time requirement. The electric powertrain adoption is expected to be 15% in medium-duty trucks and 5.2% in heavy-duty trucks in Europe.

    The world of batteries is changing very rapidly making it very hard to predict the most promising battery chemistry; however, some trends are already visible when limiting to lithium-ion based batteries. With battery prices dropping nearly 80% during 2010-2017, electric vehicles have become the favourite alternative powertrain for automakers both incumbent (such as Daimler, Volvo, and Scania) and startups (such as Tesla, Orange EV, and Nikola) ahead of hybrids.

    Fuel cell electric vehicles will be the future trend and will start acquiring the market from 2020 due to the intensity of energy in hydrogen and light weight, making the technology suitable for trucks.

    The rapid technology developments in electrification and huge market potential are inviting new technology participants and startups to invest in the CV space, whereas the transition is compelling the existing manufacturers to adopt the next-generation technology.

    With wide range of fiscal incentives and other benefits by government, emergence of eMobility value chain, and rising consumer awareness on usage benefits and cost savings, the market opportunity for electric medium- and heavy-duty trucks is predicted to be 250,000 units by 2025.

    **Mestre (Venice), 8 November 2018 – The Board of Directors of Banca IFIS met today under the chairmanship of Sebastien Egon Fürstenberg and approved the financial results for the first nine months of 2018**.

    «Over the past nine months, Banca IFIS has continued growing and supporting Italy's economy, even against a gradually deteriorating macroeconomic backdrop» says *Giovanni Bossi, Banca IFIS CEO*. «We present ourselves to investors with a robust financial position and performance. The Bank has one of the smallest holdings of Italian government bonds among financial institutions in Italy, totalling approximately 29% as a proportion of equity. In addition, it can rely on liquidity in excess of its needs, resulting in a liquidity coverage ratio (LCR) of over 2.000%, compared to a minimum regulatory requirement of 100%. We are able to offer products designed for and tailored to struggling small businesses and households, demonstrating a continuing ability to innovate and promptly meet needs as they arise. The lack of strategic legacy burdens and the positioning in markets largely overlooked by the conventional business models of other lenders help strengthen our role in Italy».
    «The Bank has been very active in each segment, growing the individual businesses and supporting companies. Special emphasis was placed on supporting the working capital of SMEs, expanding volumes as well as the number of customers served.
    As for the NPL area, as expected the Italian market is undergoing structural changes that Banca IFIS duly takes into consideration. The pressure on portfolio prices seen in early 2018 is abating, giving rise to a more interesting competitive landscape characterised by falling prices. This is why we resumed buying portfolios in the third quarter, with prices hovering around 5% for unsecured receivables with a gross book value of approximately 1,8 billion Euro. We remain firmly focused on making delinquent borrowers reperforming; the steady increase in profits as well as overall and expected cash flows as a result of these conversions is evidence of our success in this area.
    The determination to consciously play an increasingly crucial role in supporting Italy's economy, in the interest of both market participants and the Bank's growth, continues to guide our day-to-day operations».

    *Highlights*
    RECLASSIFIED DATA^4-5

    *Net banking income*

    Totalled 403,6 million Euro, +7,5% compared to the first nine months of 2017 (375,3 million Euro at 30 September 2017). The NPL segment was up 55,3% year-on-year thanks to the strong performance in the management of existing portfolios, resulting in better payment arrangements, and the value derived from part of the judicial portfolio previously recognised at cost, as detailed below. The Enterprises segment's net banking income was down -7,3% year-on-year, as the growth reported by the Trade Receivables business area (+12,6% compared to 30 September 2017) was offset by the lower contribution of the reversal PPA^6  in the Corporate Banking area compared to the prior-year period, which had been mainly affected by some early repayments.

    *Net impairment losses*

    Totalled 68,9 million Euro, compared to 11,0 million Euro in net reversals of impairment losses at 30 September 2017. The change (-79,9 million Euro) was largely attributable to 41,3 million Euro worth of individual provisions set aside on bad loans and unlikely to pay, referring to two long-standing counterparties (the relationships date back to over 15 years go) with individually significant exposures, as well as the absence of a number of net reversals recognised in the first nine months of 2017 following the successful completion of restructuring transactions.

    *Operating costs*

    Totalled 208,9 million Euro (180,7 million Euro at 30 September 2017, +15,6%). The cost/income ratio stood at 51,8%, compared to 50,1% in the prior-year period.
    Personnel expenses amounted to 83,3 million Euro (73,8 million Euro in September 2017, +12,9%). At the end of September, the Group's employees numbered 1.622, compared to 1.433 at 30 September 2017 (+13,2%). 87 employees were acquired following the inclusion of the subsidiaries Cap.Ital.Fin. S.p.A. and Credifarma S.p.A in the Group's scope.
    Other administrative expenses amounted to 133,8 million Euro, up 28,5% from 104,1 million Euro in the prior-year period. The line item included 20,1 million Euro in costs associated with NPLs previously recognised at cost and reclassified to amortised cost in the first nine months of 2018, as well as 1,6 million Euro in expenses related to the new subsidiaries.
    The Bank reported 8,2 million Euro in other net operating income at 30 September 2018, compared to 2,8 million Euro in other net operating costs at 30 September 2017; this change was attributable to the recovery of 7,0 million Euro worth of stamp duty costs for retail funding, which are charged back to customers as from 1 January 2018, as well as the gain on bargain purchase^7 arising from the acquisition of Credifarma, provisionally estimated at 3,9 million Euro.

    At 30 September 2018, *the Group net profit for the period* totalled 89,0 million Euro, down 40,3% from 149,1 million Euro at 30 September 2017.

    As for the contribution of *individual segments* to the operating and financial results at 30 September 2018, here below are the highlights:

    · *The Enterprises segment's* net banking income, which accounted for 59,9% of the total, amounted to 241,6 million Euro, down 7,3% in the first nine months of 2018 from 260,6 million Euro in 2017, as the growth of the business areas included within this segment was offset by the lower contribution of the reversal PPA in Corporate Banking (50,1 million Euro at 30 September 2018, -30,1% from 30 September 2017). The Enterprises segment's receivables totalled 5.669,5 million Euro at 30 September 2018, up 3,8% from the restated amount at 1 January 2018.

                 
    Specifically, the *Trade Receivables area* generated 123,6 million Euro in net banking income (109,8 million Euro at 30 September 2017, +12,6%); turnover rose to 9,5 billion Euro (+20,0% from 30 September 2017), and the number of corporate customers was up 9,9% compared to the prior-year period. Outstanding loans in the trade receivables segment amounted to 3,4 billion Euro, in line with 1 January 2018.

    *Corporate Banking* generated 70,4 million Euro in net banking income, down 30,2 million Euro largely because of the inevitably lower contribution of the reversal PPA. Lending was up 8.4% in the first nine months of 2018 compared to the prior-year period. The Corporate Banking segment's outstanding loans totalled 801,8 million Euro, up 18% from 1 January 2018—mainly because of the growth in new lending in the Structured Finance area.

    Over the first nine months of 2018, the new financing extended by the *Leasing business area* was up 8% from the prior-year period (503 million Euro in the first 9 months of 2018 compared to 466 million Euro in the first 9 months of 2017).  The main drivers were the Equipment Leasing and Capital Market segments, while Auto Leasing maintained its market position despite the contraction in car sales. Loans to customers totalled approximately 1.346 million Euro, up 5,9% from 1 January 2018. Net banking income amounted to 38,4 million Euro, essentially in line (+0,6%) with 30 September 2017. The rise in loans offset the decline in profitability caused by increased competition and the fact that old and more profitable portfolios reached maturity.   

    · *The NPL segment*^8, dedicated to acquiring and converting non-performing loans into sustainable and mostly unsecured settlement plans, reported 168,2 million Euro in net banking income (108,4 million Euro in 2017, +55,3%). This was the Group's fastest-growing segment, thanks to the higher number of court-issued garnishment orders (+72,8% compared to 3Q2017) as well as the strong performance in converting existing portfolios. In addition, during the reporting period the Bank further refined the statistical models for measuring expected cash flows, especially concerning the positions undergoing judicial operations in the pre-garnishment order stage—which were previously recognised at cost with no contribution to profit or loss. This allowed to reclassify these positions to amortised cost, causing the segment to recognise approximately 47 million Euro through profit or loss in the first nine months of 2018.

    At 30 September 2018, the nominal amount of outstanding receivables totalled 14,7 billion Euro, and their net value was 945 million Euro. Cash receipts rose from nearly 84,4 million Euro in the first nine months of 2017 to approximately 125,7 million Euro in the first nine months of 2018; the sales of portfolios carried out during the reporting period generated an additional 8,0 million Euro in cash receipts.
    In the third quarter of the year, Banca IFIS seized upon favourable market opportunities and resumed buying NPL portfolios. It purchased unsecured portfolios for a gross book value of 1,8 billion Euro at a price of approximately 5%, bringing the net value of acquired portfolios in the first nine months of 2018 to 103 million Euro.

    In 2018, the Bank continued with its strategy to consolidate wholesale funding, so as to strike a better balance with retail funding: the first half of the year saw a number of transactions with institutional investors on the debt market. At 30 September 2018, the Group's funding structure was as follows:

    · 60,5% retail;
    · 13,8% debt securities;
    · 12,6% ABS;
    · 8,8% TLTRO;
    · 4,3% other.

    As for the assets backing the collateralisation of part of the funding, at 30 September 2018 the Bank held 423 million Euro worth of government bonds (fair value: 405,6 million Euro, -5,1% from 1 January 2018) with limited duration, classified as financial assets at fair value through other comprehensive income.
    The fair value loss on said bonds had a negative 20 bps impact on CET1 (8 bps in the 3rd quarter of 2018 alone).

    Below is the breakdown of net non-performing exposures in the *Enterprises segment*^9 (totalling 361,9 million Euro):

    · *net bad loans* amounted to 74,5 million Euro, compared to 62,9 million Euro at 1 January 2018 (+18,5%); the net bad-loan ratio was 1,3%, up slightly from 1,2% at 1 January 2018. The coverage ratio stood at 70,7% (71,0% at 1 January 2018);
    · *the balance of net unlikely to pay* was 165,0 million Euro, +1,2% from 163,1 million Euro at 1 January 2018; the coverage ratio rose to 33,9% from 26,5% at 1 January 2018;
    · *net non-performing past due exposures* totalled 122,4 million Euro, compared to 112,0 million Euro at 1 January 2018 (+9,3%). The coverage ratio of net non-performing past due exposures stood at 10,7%, compared to 10,6% at 1 January 2018.

    At the end of the period,* the* *Group's consolidated equity* totalled 1.397,4 million Euro, compared to 1.371,7 million Euro at 1 January 2018.

    The *consolidated Common Equity Tier 1* (CET1), Tier 1 (T1), and Total Own Funds Ratios of the Banca IFIS Group alone, excluding the effect of the consolidation of the Parent Company La Scogliera^10 at 30 September 2018, amounted to 14,63% for both the CET1 and T1 ratios, compared to 15,64% at 31 December 2017, while the consolidated Total Own Funds Ratio amounted to 19,6%, compared to 21,07% at 31 December 2017.

    *The consolidated Common Equity Tier 1 (CET1)* and Total Own Funds Ratios including the effect of the prudential consolidation in the Parent Company La Scogliera at 30 September 2018, amounted to 10,67% (compared to 11,66% at 31 December 2017), while the consolidated Total Own Funds Ratio amounted to 14,74% (compared to 16,15% at 31 December 2017).

Please visit the “Institutional Investor Relations” and “Media Press” sections of the institutional website www.bancaifis.it to view all press releases.
    Here below is a summary of the most significant events occurred during the period and before the approval of this document:

    *Acquisition of control of Cap.Ital.Fin. S.p.A.*
    Concerning the binding offer to acquire control of Cap.Ital.Fin S.p.A. submitted on 24 November 2017, on 2 February 2018 the Bank finalised the acquisition of 100% of Cap.Ital.Fin S.p.A., a company on the register as per Article 106 of the Consolidated Law on Banking that operates across Italy and specialises in salary-backed loans and salary or pension deductions for retirees as well as private- and public-sector and government employees.

    *Preferred unsecured senior bond placement*
    In April 2018, Banca IFIS successfully completed the placement of its first preferred unsecured senior bond issue. The 300 million Euro bond has a 5-year maturity and a 2% fixed coupon rate, and the issue price was 99,231%. The bond, reserved for institutional investors except for those in the United States, was issued under Banca IFIS S.p.A.'s EMTN Programme and will be listed on the Irish Stock Exchange. Fitch assigned a “BB+” long-term rating to the bond.

    *Agreement to acquire FBS S.p.A. *
    On 15 May 2018, the Group finalised an agreement to acquire control over FBS S.p.A., a servicing specialist (including both master and special services), manager of secured and unsecured NPL portfolios, due diligence advisor, and investor authorised to conduct NPL transactions. The finalisation of the transaction, which was originally expected to close by September 2018 with the Group's acquisition of 90% of FBS for 58,5 million Euro, is pending approval from the Bank of Italy.

    *Transfer of Banca IFIS's business unit dedicated to Non-Performing Loans*
    IFIS NPL S.p.A., the Banca IFIS Group company into which Banca IFIS spun off its NPL segment, became fully operational on 1 July 2018.
    IFIS NPL has obtained the authorisation to extend financing and was entered into the register of financial intermediaries pursuant to Article 106 of the Italian Consolidated Law on Banking effective 1 July 2018.

    *Acquisition of control of Credifarma S.p.A.*

    On 2 July 2018, the Group finalised the acquisition of 70% of Credifarma S.p.A., a company specialising in pharmacy lending. The deal was finalised through Banca IFIS's acquisition of the combined 32,5% stake of UniCredit and BNL – BNP Paribas Group as well as the acquisition of part of Federfarma's current interest in the company, amounting to 21,5%. Finally, the lender finalised a capital increase reserved for Banca IFIS to provide Credifarma with a robust financial position for regulatory purposes as well as to pursue future growth plans. The deal required an overall investment—including the capital increase—of approximately 8,8 million Euro.

    *Fitch confirms BB+ rating, outlook stable *
    On 13 September 2018, Fitch Rating Inc. maintained the Long-term Issuer Default Rating (IDR) at ‘BB+’, outlook “Stable”, originally assigned in September 2017. The confirmation of Banca IFIS's rating and outlook testifies to its strength as well as the soundness of its growth and development plans. For more details, please see the ratings agency's press release, available at www.fitchratings.com.

    *Renewal of EMTN Programme for issues of up to 5 billion Euro*
    On 26 September 2018, the Group renewed the non-convertible bond issue programme named “EMTN - Euro Medium Term Notes Programme”, launched in September 2017. This allows Banca IFIS to continue seizing financing opportunities on the debt market in a timely and flexible manner through bond issues.  The programme has an overall issue limit of 5 billion Euro and is reserved exclusively for institutional investors in Italy and abroad except for the United States of America, in accordance with Regulation S of the United Securities Act of 1933.

    *Transactions involving the parent company La Scogliera S.p.A.*
    The holding company La Scogliera S.p.A. notified the Bank that it has planned a series of transactions intended to achieve regulatory results essentially equivalent to the abandoned reverse merger between the Bank and La Scogliera. In addition, La Scogliera S.p.A. informed that it has held early discussions about these transactions with the Bank of Italy and hopes that, subject to the approval of the competent authorities, the process will be completed ahead of the next meeting for the approval of the Bank's financial statements.

    *Significant subsequent events*

    No other significant events occurred between the end of the reporting period and the approval of the Consolidated Interim Report at 30 September 2018 by the Board of Directors.

    *Declaration of the Manager charged with preparing the Company’s financial reports*

    Pursuant to Article 154 bis, Paragraph 2 of the Consolidated Law on Finance, the Manager charged with preparing the Company’s financial reports, Mariacristina Taormina, declares that the financial information contained in this press release corresponds to the related books and accounting records.

    2 Net impairment losses/reversals on receivables of the NPL segment were reclassified to interest receivable and similar income to present more fairly this particular business and because they represent an integral part of the return on the investment.
    3 The reported total own funds ratio refers only to the scope of the Banca IFIS Group, thus excluding the effects of the prudential consolidation in the parent La Scogliera S.p.A. Consolidated own funds, risk-weighted assets and solvency ratios at 30 September 2018 were calculated based on the regulatory principles set out in Directive 2013/36/EU (CRD IV) and Regulation (EU) 575/2013 (CRR) dated 26 June 2013, which were transposed in the Bank of Italy's Circulars no. 285 and 286 of 17 December 2013. Article 19 of the CRR requires to include the unconsolidated holding of the banking Group in prudential consolidation.

    *Reclassified financial statements *

    Net impairment losses on receivables of the NPL were reclassified to Interest receivable and similar income to present more fairly this particular business, for which net impairment losses represent an integral part of the return on the investment.

    Dublin, Nov. 08, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Sterilization Equipment Market By Product And Service [Equipment (Moist Heat, Dry Heat, Hydrogen Peroxide, Ethylene Oxide), Consumables (Sterilization Indicators, Sterilant Cassettes), Services (E-Beam, EtO, Gamma)] - Global Forecast To 2023" report has been added to *ResearchAndMarkets.com's* offering.The global sterilization market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 7% from 2018 to reach USD 10.51 billion by 2023, driven by the factors such as increasing volume of surgeries performed globally, growing need to reduce occurrences of HAIs, and focus on reducing the cost of healthcare by minimizing hospital readmissions attributed to HAIs.

    Furthermore, the technological advancements in the medical device industry and increasing need for advanced sterilization equipment are expected to drive the technological growth of the sterilization equipment market by 2023.

    The low temperature sterilizers segment dominated the sterilization equipment market. However, the radiation sterilization segment comprising, e-beam and gamma sterilizers is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR during the forecast period, owing to their benefits, such as shorter sterilization cycle time, lower cost of sterilization, and compatibility with majority of the advanced medical devices available in the market.

    An in-depth analysis of the geographical scenario of the industry provides detailed qualitative and quantitative insights about the five major geographies (North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa) along with the coverage of major countries in each region. North America accounted for the largest share of the sterilization technologies market in 2017.

    However, during the forecast period, the APAC market is expected to register the fastest CAGR. The growth in this geographic market is primarily attributed to the government initiatives to improve healthcare infrastructure in this region, increasing number of hospitals in this region, and rising number of surgeries being performed and thereby growing demand for sterilized instruments. India and China represent the fastest growing markets in this region and globally as well.

    The major players operating in the sterilization technologies market are Steris, Getinge, Sotera Health, Advanced Sterilization Products, 3M, Belimed, MMM Group, Matachana Group, and Cantel Medical.

    While there are numerous regional and local players in the sterilization equipment and consumables market, the contract sterilization services market is dominated by Steris and Sotera Health.

    Some of the other key players in the contract sterilization services market are Cretex Companies, Medistri, COSMED Group, E-BEAM Services, Cantel Medical, Stryker Corporation, and Centurion Medical Products.
