Miss Cougar International Speaks Out Against CougarLife Billboard

Amy Luna Manderino, the reigning Miss Cougar International, is calling out the dating site Cougarlifecom, for its recent advertising ploy.

San Rafael, CA (May 31, 2013) -- Contact: Tom Andrews, 415-479-3800

Amy Luna Manderino, the reigning Miss Cougar International, is calling out the dating site Cougarlifecom, for its recent advertising ploy. The Los Angeles billboard depicts a woman breastfeeding with a thought bubble balloon from the (presumably male) baby's head saying "Jealous?" in order to promote their dating website for older women and younger men.

Ms. Manderino, a popular educational speaker on the aging revolution and s*x and gender evolution, regularly speaks about dating sites that use s*xually graphic images of older women to sell their product. "A few individuals have managed to brand the cougar archetype and, as a result, they have p*rnified, objectified and trivialized an entire generation of confident, empowered women who are exercising new choices and freedoms as society evolves."

In her blog, Age and the S*x Evolution, Ms. Manderino explains how Cougarlife and its parent, Avid Life Media, are perpetuating a harmful, regressive image of mature single women. "Women who are s*xually knowledgable, comfortable and open lead happy, healthy lives as the s*xual equals of their partners. Characterizing confident women as 'hunters' reinforces the obsolete and dangerous idea that human s*xuality requires a 'predator' and a 'prey' which creates a climate that contributes to s*xual assault as well as unsatisfying consensual s*x." The full blog is at http://www.amyluna.com/blog.

Manderino is a performing artist, academic scholar, public speaker and lifelong advocate for gender equality and healthy s*xuality. She competed to win Miss Cougar International in order to acknowledge the exciting cultural shifts occurring for women and men and to debunk the obsolete "Mrs. Robinson" stereotype. She is also a member of Mensa (high IQ society), Omicron Delta Kappa (national leadership honor society) and the Alumnae Leadership Council of the Public Leadership Education Network for women. Amy Luna Manderino is available to the news media for interviews by calling 510-666-7626 or by emailing misscougarinternational@gmail.com.

Market Rates Insight Releases Findings from its New Consumer Study: Growth and Revenue Potential from Emerging Financial Services

New fee optimization study reveals perceived value of new financial services and how to optimize fees with service bundles to generate new revenue.

SAN ANSELMO, Calif. (May 30, 2013) -- Market Rates Insight, Inc., a leader in financial services intelligence for deposits, personal loans, mortgages, and fees, has completed the analysis phase of its latest consumer research and fee optimization study, "Growth and Revenue Potential for Emerging Financial Services." The study examines 13 emerging financial services and assesses consumer attitudes about the importance and value of each service, segmented by banks and credit unions as well as demographic groups. The study findings will be reviewed in a webinar to be hosted by Market Rates Insight on June 18.

This study is the only one of its kind to measure consumer attitudes about banking fees and services and was conducted nationwide to help banks and credit unions better understand consumers and identify new revenue sources from fee-based services and service bundles. Banks and credit unions are facing new challenges from non-banking competitors offering banking services, and they need to identify new ways to attract and keep customers. This study provides empirical data on the importance and value of emerging services to help financial institutions create service offerings that attract and retain customers while building revenue.

Some of the preliminary findings reveal that identity theft alerts (70.8%), credit score reporting (71.4%), payment protection services (64.6%), and same-day bill pay (58.7%) currently ranked with the highest consumer demand. Other services such as eldercare services, prepaid reloadable cards, and location-based coupons showed the greatest growth potential with consumers.

This study also reveals for the first time how consumers value certain combinations of services. Consumers typically value service bundles more than individual services, and will pay a premium for bundled services. The study reveals which combination of services command higher fees because of increased consumer demand.

"For the foreseeable future deposit rates will remain flat and loan demand will stay soft, so financial institutions will have to rely in fee revenues for income growth. But to convert services from 'free to fee,' banks and credit unions will have to identify new services that consumers want and are willing to pay for. Our new study shows banks and credit unions how to use service fees to expand profits and penetration with both existing and new customers."

The "Growth and Revenue Potential lf Emerging Financial Services" study is being offered in both an Essential and Premium package. The Essential package includes copies of the complete 150-page study and a competitive survey of 10 financial institutions and their adoption of the 13 emerging financial services. The Premium package includes the survey and competitive data, as well as an optimization analysis of service bundles, an online optimization consultation, copies of the Emerging Trend Spotlight quarterly update, and access to trend analysis and service integration online seminars.

_____________
* The decline in net profit was due to the revaluation of the Company’s share in Minudobrenia (Perm) carried out in 2012, as well as to the foreign exchange gain in 2012.

Dmitry Konyaev, CEO of URALCHEM, OJSC (the Russian holding company of the Group), commented on the results, "In the first quarter of this year, URALCHEM increased its revenues and the adjusted EBITDA grew substantially. This shows how effectively the Company is working. URALCHEM is still focusing on production of high-margin products demanded by the market. The first three months of 2013 showed the sort of results which we had anticipated. This is a positive testament to our strategy of strengthening our position in the nitrogen segment."

Financial Results

Revenue for the first quarter of 2013 grew to US $683 million, compared to US $673 million in the first quarter of last year. Operating profit amounted to US $220 million, or 32% of the revenue, compared with the operating profit of US $178 million, or 26% of the revenue, in the first quarter of 2012. Net profit for the first quarter of 2013 amounted to US $161 million, compared to US $354 million in the first quarter of 2012.

During the first quarter of 2013, adjusted EBITDA reached US $250 million, compared to US $207 million the year before, a rise of 19%. The adjusted EBITDA margin for the first quarter of 2013 comprised 37% of revenue compared with 31% of revenue for the first quarter of 2012.

Revenue, EBITDA margin and adjusted EBITDA increased during the first quarter of 2013 as compared to the same period in 2012. The difference in the net profit is due to revaluation of the Company's share in Minudobrenia, Perm carried out in 2012 and foreign exchange differences that showed opposite dynamics in 2013.

Markets

Ammonia
During the quarter, the price of ammonia was slowly declining. The main factor determining the price dynamics was the lack of demand in both the agricultural and the industrial segments. Reduced production of phosphate fertilizers in North Africa and India resulted in lower demand for ammonia in these regions. US demand for ammonia for direct application was satisfied by supplies from Trinidad and from domestic market. The growth of the industrial segment in East Asia appeared to be insufficient to cover spot volumes and the demand was met by contract supplies. Ammonia production in Egypt decreased due to the limitations of gas supplies for nitrogen production, but at the same time, capacities utilization in Trinidad increased to 90%.

Urea
At the beginning of the quarter prices for urea increased rapidly. Quotes for prilled urea in the Black Sea ports showed growth from $375/t FOB in early January to $445/t FOB in mid-February. In the Baltic, the corresponding figures were at $360/t FOB and $430/t FOB. The most significant factor that determined the dynamics of prices at the beginning of the first quarter was the shift of the market balance towards demand.

On the one hand, the early part of the year is traditionally a period of high demand from Europe and the USA, and European importers had low stocks at the start of the purchasing season. On the other hand, restrictions on the supply of gas to nitrogen production facilities in Egypt at the beginning of the year led to a substantial reduction in export supply.

Shortages of supply of Egyptian urea increased the interest of European buyers in products from other countries, including the supply of prilled urea from the CIS. However, from mid-February, there was a reduction in prices, which continued until the end of the quarter. In the ports of CIS, price reduction was associated with the sale of long positions by traders. A decline in prices for ammonium nitrate in Europe produced additional pressure on the price of urea.

Prices continued to decline in March due to lower demand in the US and Europe, caused by the delay in fertilizer application due to adverse weather conditions. Latin American importers, the biggest buyers of Russian urea, switched to purchasing for current needs, focusing on the dynamics of prices. Toward the end of March, supply increased in the Ukrainian ports in connection with the completion of the season in that area.

Ammonium nitrate
Quotes for ammonium nitrate generally followed the trends in the price of urea. During January and February there was a steady growth in the quotations for the product at the ports of the CIS because of the shortage of the product available for export, due to supplies being allocated for domestic use. In mid-March the trend changed markedly due to lower domestic demand.

Phosphate fertilizers
Until mid-February, global decline in prices continued due to the lack of current demand. In February, major suppliers decreased production, which made it possible to stabilize prices. Then, due to increased demand in Latin America, prices started to restore. By the end of March, indicators of export prices in Tampa rose to $515/t FOB against the lowest prices of $465/t - $475/t FOB. Still, Latin America remained the single largest source of demand. Indian buyers refrained from transactions; closed tenders were held, mostly to test price expectations.

Production and sales

In the first quarter of 2013 the fertilizer market was stable and the Group's products enjoyed strong demand. Volume of production by the Group's enterprises remained at the level of the first quarter of last year. A significant portion of production output was sold in April 2013 due to adverse weather conditions and late start of the sowing season.

Annex to the press release about the unaudited financial results
for the first quarter of 2013

EBITDA is a profit / loss from financial and economic activities during the reporting period, before deduction of income tax on profits, income and interest costs, depreciation and amortization. "Adjusted EBITDA" is EBITDA for the reporting period before goodwill, profit / loss from associates, profit / loss on foreign exchange differences arising on financial performance and profit / loss on operations with derivative financial instruments. Adjusted EBITDA is operating profit before depreciation and amortization and financial results of operations with derivative financial instruments. In accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards ("IFRS"), depreciation and amortization are included in cost structure, and in the selling, general and administrative expenses. IFRS does not require the disclosure and does not describe the calculation of EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA, among other financial indicators, so they can not substitute for net profit for the period when evaluating the results of operations or the measure of cash provided by operating activities when evaluating liquidity. Approach to the calculation of EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA, as described earlier, may not coincide with the approaches used by other companies, therefore, comparability may be limited. We believe that EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA provide useful information to investors because they are indicators of the stability and efficiency of our business and our ability to fund discretionary spending such as capital expenditures, the acquisition of subsidiaries and other investments, as well as indicators of our ability to incur and service debt. IFRS classifies depreciation and amortization to operating costs, while in fact they are distributed to the current period non-cash expenses for the acquisition or creation of fixed assets, incurred in previous periods, and are not affiliated with the movement of funds.

For Futures Magazine, Edgar Perez's The Speed Traders An Enlightening Read on High-Frequency Trading

Edgar Perez Presenting at Hong Kong Securities Institute
Edgar Perez, Author, The Speed Traders: An Insider's Look at the New High-Frequency Trading Phenomenon That is Transforming the Investing World, Published by in English by McGraw-Hill Inc. (2011), Mandarin by China Financial Publishing House (2012), and Bahasa Indonesia by Gramedia (2012) and Course Director, The Speed Traders Workshop 2012 (Hong Kong, Sao Paulo, Seoul, Kuala Lumpur, Warsaw, Kiev, Beijing and Shanghai).

New York City, NY, USA (May 28, 2013) -- An enlightening read is how John Siewers III, a commodity broker for more than 20 years with 15 years experience on the Chicago trading floors, summarizes Edgar Perez's book, The Speed Traders for Futures Magazine. "When a successful money making machine enters the picture, the expansion from the few to the many will occur naturally. The book is very clear on the evolutionary line. Perez has cornered a few of the success stories and had the luck/gumption to interrogate (er, interview) the few who would sit for it. It's seems to be a cross technique he follows, while not exactly exposing the traders, and not exactly a promotional piece. I am sure their publicist, if they have one, couldn't have been happier."

"The fact that active players in this high-speed shuffle have different ideas of what constitutes high-frequency trading is logical when a new strategy evolves out of breathtakingly fast technological changes. High-frequency trading developers and entrepreneurs have chosen to remain, from inception through the recent flurry of regulation, litigation and bad press, in the shadows as any extremely profitable format of trading logically would. Many rumors and preconceived ideas have sprung up among the general public as well as the animosity of more traditional investors. As a natural result a continuation of secrecy remains, as you would expect in any number of highly successfully systems. An insider's look is right. Perez does a fine job of laying out the argument FOR high frequency trading."

The Speed Traders, An Insider's Look at the New High-Frequency Trading Phenomenon That is Transforming the Investing World has been published in English by McGraw-Hill Inc.
