Poland leading NATO on transforming air and missile defense, ensuring coalition interoperability and acquiring flexibility for addressing future threats

WARSAW, Poland, March 28, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The government of Poland has signed a Letter of Offer and Acceptance (LOA) with the U.S. government to purchase the Northrop Grumman Corporation (NYSE:NOC)-developed Integrated Air and Missile Defense (IAMD) Battle Command System (IBCS).

The LOA allows the U.S. government to start contracting with Northrop Grumman for production and delivery of IBCS that enables Poland's modernized air defense capabilities.

Poland becomes the first international partner country to purchase the IBCS. By implementing IBCS, Poland will transform its IAMD capabilities in a manner consistent with how the U.S. Army is revolutionizing IAMD. Poland will also ensure seamless integration of its air defense forces in allied operations.

"We congratulate Poland on its recent anniversary of accession to NATO," said Dan Verwiel, vice president and general manager, missile defense and protective systems, Northrop Grumman. "With IBCS, Poland sets a new standard for NATO for the most cutting edge IAMD capabilities possible."

"Northrop Grumman looks forward to working with the Polish Ministry of National Defence and Polish industry to help produce and sustain IBCS for the WISLA program," said Tarik Reyes, vice president, business development, missile defense and protective systems, Northrop Grumman.

IBCS continues to confirm the effectiveness of a net-centric, enterprise approach to IAMD for getting capabilities to the warfighter that make a pivotal difference on the battlefield. IBCS replaces stove-piped legacy C2 systems to deliver a single integrated air picture and offer the flexibility to deploy smaller force packages. By integrating sensors and interceptors, IBCS provides wider area surveillance and broader protection areas. With its truly open systems architecture, IBCS enables incorporation of current and future sensors and weapon systems and interoperability with joint C2 and the ballistic missile defense system.

Key to IAMD transformation and the Army IAMD portfolio, the IBCS is managed by the U.S. Army IAMD Project Office, Program Executive Office for Missiles and Space, Redstone Arsenal, Alabama.

LeoVegas kommentar på information gällande ändrade förutsättningar på den norska marknaden25.4.2018 14:32Pressmeddelande

I LeoVegas finansiella mål om intäkter på minst 600 MEUR år 2020 och minst 100 MEUR i EBITDA år 2020, som presenterades 19 april, har det tagits i beaktning att marknadsförutsättningar kan förändras. Meddelandet igår om förslaget till norska stortinget är ett exempel på ändrade förutsättningar som LeoVegas strategiska planering tagit höjd för. LeoVegas strävar efter att vara ett transparent bolag och väljer därför att ange storleken på den norska marknaden för att ge en ökad förståelse. I mars 2018 stod den norska marknaden för 4,6% av koncernens totala intäkter. Oavsett utgång påverkar utvecklingen i Norge inte LeoVegas finansiella mål. "Ännu finns det inga detaljer kring förslaget men i alla branscher får man räkna med att förutsättningarna kan ändras. Vissa marknader stängs ner och andra öppnas och regleras. Norge har idag inget lokalt licenssystem och istället för förbud hoppas jag att Norge rör sig mot en lokal reglering likt den utvecklingen vi ser i Sverige.", säger Gustaf Hagma

In March 2018, the Norwegian market accounted for 4.6% of LeoVegas total revenues. Regardless of the outcome the development in Norway, it does not affect LeoVegas financial targets. "There are still no details about the proposal, but in all industries, one can expect that the conditions can change. Some markets are closed and others are opened and regulated. Norway currently has no local licensing system, and instead of prohibition,
