Swiss Economy Expands 0.3% In Q1

BUZ INVESTORS  Swiss Economy Expands Swiss economy grew 0.3 percent on quarter in the first quarter of 2016, following an upwardly revised 0.2 percent expansion in the previous period but slightly below market consensus of a 0.4 percent gain. It was the strongest expansion since the second quarter of 2016, supported by exports and business investment.

Exports of goods increased by 3.9 percent, reversing from a 3.5 percent decline in the previous quarter, mainly boosted by chemicals and pharmaceuticals and by the precision tools, watches and jewellery segment, which had its highest growth in six years. Exports of services also rose 3.2 percent after falling 1 percent in Q4 2016. Meanwhile, imports declined 1.5 percent, following a 0.2 percent increase in the previous period, as purchases of chemical and pharmaceutical products fell, while those of energy, machinery, precision instruments, watshes and jewelry rose.

Investment in equipment and software gained 1.7 percent, rebounding from a 0.5 percent drop in Q4 and investment in construction advanced 0.4 percent after falling 0.3 percent in the previous period.

Meanwhile, household consumption rose 0.1 percent, much slower than a 0.9 percent increase in the previous quarter. While spending on health supported the economy, the residential and energy contributed negatively to the GDP.

Government spending went up 0.4 percent, also weaker than a 0.9 percent rise in the prior quarter.

Year-on-year, the economy grew by 1.1 percent, faster than an upwardly revised 0.7 percent growth in the prior quarter but below market expectations of 1.3 percent.

BUZ INVESTORS  PRESS RELEASE Tetra Bio-Pharma Inc. (“Tetra” or the “Company“) (CSE:TBP)(TBP.CN)(CNSX:TBP)(TBPMF), announced today that it will also commercialize novel cannabinoid based formulations for the treatment of pet conditions.

Over the last year, Tetra demonstrated its leadership in the development of human prescription cannabinoid drugs and will use the same strategy to become a leader in the field of veterinary cannabinoid drug products. Tetra will adopt a similar regulatory approach of transparency and collaboration with the veterinary drug authorities. In fact, Tetra is well suited to tackle the veterinary drug market since the ACMPR was created to allow human patient’s access to medical marijuana and does not provide any measures to allow testing of cannabis or cannabis derived products in pets.

According to a USA Federal Trade Commission May 2015 report, in 2014, Americans spent approximately $58 billion on their pets, including medications. This number more than doubled since 2001. This market is expected to enjoy excellent growth over the next decade as new therapies provide better and more tolerable treatment for pets. According to Andre Rancourt, CEO of Tetra Bio-Pharma, “After carefully studying the veterinary pet market and potential partnerships, the company decided to expand its development activities in order to tap into this lucrative market. In addition, Tetra is very fortunate to have Dr. Chamberland who has considerable experience navigating the regulatory affairs in the veterinary industry.”

Tetra had announced the successful completion of several corporate milestones associated with the development of its prescription drug products. These announcements lead to discussions with veterinary specialists who expressed the need for novel cannabinoid therapies for pets.




Tetra Bio-Pharma Inc

 

Tetra will create a Veterinary Advisory board consisting of veterinary specialists in the fields of ophthalmology, oncology and pain. This board of veterinary experts will help guide the development to ensure that the products target unmet veterinary needs for domestic animals. Tetra will use the veterinary drug development program to expand its potential revenues from the sales of a drug product in both the human and pet drug markets. The corporation will also establish partnerships with pharmaceutical companies specialized in the sale and distribution of veterinary products.

About Tetra Bio-Pharma:

Tetra Bio-Pharma is a multi subsidiary publicly traded company (CSE:TBP)(TBPMF) engaged in the development of Bio Pharmaceuticals and Natural Health Products containing Cannabis and other medicinal plant based elements.

Tetra Bio-Pharma is focused on combining the traditional methods of medicinal cannabis use with the supporting scientific validation and safety data required for inclusion into the existing bio pharma industry by regulators physicians and insurance companies. More information is available about the company at: www.tetrabiopharma.com.

In a message seemingly tailored to the Trump Administration’s focus on U.S. paramountcy, Mr. Girling also said the $8-billion (U.S.) pipeline project will strengthen U.S. energy security, support tens of thousands of direct and indirect jobs, and contribute approximately $3.4-billion to U.S. GDP. He noted that TransCanada employees live in 38 U.S. states where the Calgary-based firm operates, and the company is committed to working productively with stakeholders and tribal leaders. “The project is an important new piece of modern U.S. infrastructure that secures access to an abundant energy resource produced by a neighbour that shares a commitment to a clean and healthy environment,” Mr. Girling said. On Wednesday, Mr. Girling told an audience at the CIBC Whistler Institutional Investor Conference that the company has only just re-engaged with potential shippers to see if they’re still interested in committing to the project. Keystone XL was first envisioned in 2008, a time when crude oil prices topped $100 (U.S.) a barrel, and before Canadian oil producers faced intense competition from U.S. shale.

New Activity in Quebec Supports Developments at Lowe’s

Winning Brands Expands Its Reach

Winning Brands Corporation (OTC PINK:WNBD) www.WinningBrands.com has started implementing a plan to raise its profile in new digital and physical markets that are language-based. In the first such initiative, Winning Brands has gone live with a new French language portal and introduced an additional sales agency relationship in Quebec for its 1000+ Stain Remover brand. www.1000PlusFrancais.com.

Quebec is the French-speaking Canadian province, with a population of 8 million, where U.S. home improvement giant Lowe’s recently acquired Canada’s largest home improvement retailer, RONA. 1000+ Stain Remover is listed with Lowe’s in Canada. The new portal will help Winning Brands to provide best possible service to Lowe’s future interests in Quebec, and to project brand awareness of 1000+ Stain Remover in that market generally. It is estimated that 295 RONA stores in Quebec will convert to the Lowe’s name and join Lowe’s other Canadian locations under the Lowe’s banner.

The next “language market” that Winning Brands will address is Spanish, with additional initiatives to be announced for digital and in-market relationships in that sphere.

Winning Brands’ projection of its 1000+ Stain Remover brand into other language markets has been limited, yet 1000+ Stain Remover generates loyalty amongst consumers who have discovered it in foreign markets. Language support will accelerate this awareness. Foreign distribution of 1000+ Stain Remover is achieved in part through Winning Brands’ listing with U.S.-based Do it Best Hardware group and Lancaster Distributing, both of which provide container shipping consolidation points for overseas, Caribbean and South American destinations. The strategy behind the Winning Brands new “language market” initiative for 1000+ Stain Remover is to foster discussion in these markets about the brand for growth synergies and local investor engagement. Winning Brands already has shareholders outside of North America.

Winning Brands CEO, Eric Lehner, summarizes: “Winning Brands operations are picking up in 2017. Our scope is broadening again in relationships and product factors. We are laying the foundation for a stronger, better and more exciting company going forward.”

Winning Brands is coming out of a quiet period during which it was assessing how to regain momentum. A recently announced $1.5 million Tier I offering under SEC Regulation A will enable Winning Brands to take new steps to support its brands, present and future. These brands will eventually include new items in launch partnerships with innovators whose inventions represent exceptional opportunities for public shareholders.

Mr. Lehner maintains a CEO weblog for the benefit of shareholders at www.WinningBrandsCorporation.com/blog . It is a journal of the company’s mission, providing answers to many shareholder questions. It is a regular source of public information pertaining to the company pursuant to SEC Fair Disclosure guidelines.
