the Deal is worth almost a billion crowns.

We have a long-term relationship to the OKG and this shows that they have confidence in us, says Westinghouse Electric Sweden managing director Aziz Day on the phone from Ukraine where he visits customers.

Westinghousefabriken is in Västerås and the company has provided Swedish nuclear reactors with fuel in more than 50 years.

The new agreement means that the supply will continue to 2030 – provided that the reactor O3 remains in operation.

2015 decided OKG's principal owner, Eon to the two other reactors, O1 and O2, shall be taken out of service due to declining profitability.

Private equity suitors TPG, Advent International Corp. and a partnership of Sycamore Partners and Vector Capital Management are into the final round of bidding for Yahoo Inc., according to people familiar with the matter.The three buyout groups join Verizon Communications Inc., AT Inc. and Quicken Loans Inc. founder Dan Gilbert in the last weeks of the bidding process, with each vying to win Yahoo s core Internet business, as well as some of its intellectual property and real estate assets.All of the offers value Yahoo from about $4 billion to $6 billion except for Verizon, said one of the people, all of whom asked not to be identified as the matter is private.

TPG, which sees itself as Yahoo s best chance to turn around a struggling business, has had preliminary talks with strategic partners, although it continues to bid alone, one of the people said.A winning bidder for some combination of Yahoo s assets will probably be chosen early next month, the people said.Sycamore and Vector, two investment firms that have teamed up to bid, typically invest in smaller assets.

Sycamore focuses on retail and consumer investments, rather than technology firms, and owns stakes in shoe retailer Nine West Holdings Inc. and department store chain Belk Inc., according to its website.

Vector invests in tech companies including Gerber Scientific Inc. and Triton Digital.While the group is still in the running, Sycamore and Vector probably don t have the capital resources to win, one of the people said.Apax Partners and a group comprising Bain Capital LP and Vista Equity Partners are no longer involved in the process, the people said.AT and Gilbert, whose effort is backed by Warren Buffett, each bid about $5 billion for Yahoo, including at least some of its patents as well as the real estate assets, people with knowledge of the matter said last week.To listen to Bloomberg reporters discuss Buffett s decision to back a Yahoo bid, click hereRepresentatives for Apax, AT, TPG, Sycamore, Verizon and Yahoo declined to comment.

Given Yahoo s declining profitability and revenue, lenders aren t likely to provide financing of more than four times adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, appreciation and amortization, the people said.Yahoo projects adjusted Ebitda of $700 million to $800 million this year.

Using the midpoint of the range would imply a ceiling of about $3 billion in debt, based on the four times multiple.

With inspiration from, among other things, trollsländors wings can wind turbine blades operate more efficiently in different types of weather conditions, writes Science.

the World's largest coal-fired power plants close, and not even the american president Donald Trump can do something about it, reports the Washington Post.

Declining profitability due to competition from natural gas is the big reason.

Inc. could be a death knell to efforts by private equity firms hoping to acquire the beleaguered internet company.The telecommunication giant s presence puts pressure not just on Verizon Communications Inc. and Quicken Loans Inc. founder Dan Gilbert -- backed by Warren Buffett -- to raise their offers.

It also adds another deep-pocketed strategic company to the mix of bidders for Yahoo s core web assets.Private equity firms, which often rely heavily on debt to finance buyouts, realize they would struggle to win a bidding war with well-capitalized acquirers while still generating the types of returns demanded by their investors, according to people familiar with the situation, who asked not to be identified because the information is private.Yahoo s core assets could fetch at least $4.5 billion, or six times adjusted earnings, according to Jason Helfstein, an analyst with Oppenheimer & Co.Given Yahoo s declining profitability and revenue, lenders aren t likely to provide financing of more than four times adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, appreciation and amortization, people familiar with the matter said.

The company, which had said it would be open to looking at Yahoo if it were for sale, submitted a first-round proposal, people familiar with the matter said in April.Both telecoms could benefit from the infusion of online users.

Yahoo still boasts about 1 billion, putting it among the largest online players in the world.And both companies could tuck Yahoo away within their quarterly earnings results, choosing not to break out the relatively small earnings the company may generate in the near term.

This could help give Yahoo the cover it needs to refocus.That s something the private equity firms also offer: financial sponsors could restructure the business more quickly, unencumbered by pressure for top-line growth or to consider earnings per share.Yahoo -- more than three years into a turnaround process under Chief Executive Officer Marissa Mayer -- put itself up for sale in February.

We ve been very thoughtful about running a high-quality process, designed to keep interested parties engaged and highlight the tremendous value in Yahoo, she said.
