“We celebrate small businesses every day at T-Mobile — they are the backbone of our communities. Today, we’re going even bigger for small businesses with Microsoft 365 on Us, providing critical Microsoft tools to help them survive and thrive in the face of new realities,” said Mike Katz, EVP T-Mobile for Business. “Additionally, small business owners now have a new experience when they step into retail stores with highly trained mobile experts ready to serve them and other small businesses in the area. These businesses have endured such great challenges in 2020, and we want them to know — we’re with you.”

Small businesses are the foundation for economies worldwide. In fact, small-and medium-sized enterprises represent over 90% of all businesses, between 60-70% of employment and 55% of GDP in developed economies.1 The pandemic has hit small businesses especially hard, and they need help now more than ever.

“T-Mobile and Microsoft have a shared commitment to helping small businesses save time and money by providing the tools and technology they need to succeed both now and into the future,” said Mark Kroese, General Manager, Microsoft 365 for SMB. “With the new offering, T-Mobile is making Microsoft 365 tools available to T-Mobile for Business customers, and in the process helping small business owners stay connected and productive in a new world of remote work.”

Today’s announcement builds on T-Mobile’s tradition of supporting small businesses and helps to ensure business owners are equipped with the plan, devices and solutions they need to navigate new realities. When COVID-19 hit, T-Mobile quickly sprang into action to offer up to 90 days free service to new customers who switch their employees to T-Mobile — the offer is still available today. And, the Un-carrier launched a web series — Taking Care of Business — hosted by Mike Katz, EVP of T-Mobile for Business, featuring SMB leaders sharing new insights and stories to navigate these uncertain times. Now available as a podcast, “Taking Care of Business” explores the world beyond COVID-19 and dives deep with trailblazing business leaders to learn how they build leadership skills, lead successful organizations and innovate within their industries.

Plans Built for Business

T-Mobile has ranked #1 in Business Wireless customer satisfaction from businesses of ALL sizes for the last three years by J.D. Power.

National Litigation Firm Labaton Sucharow Announces Investigation of HSBC Holdings plc (NYSE: HSBC) in the Wake of Money Laundering Allegations

National Litigation Firm Labaton Sucharow Announces Investigation of HSBC Holdings plc (NYSE: HSBC) in the Wake of Money Laundering Allegations

NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–
Labaton Sucharow a global investor rights law firm, announces an investigation on behalf of purchasers of the securities of HSBC Holdings plc (NYSE: HSBC).

On September 20, Buzzfeed reported a comprehensive investigation of global financial institutions, having obtained “twenty-two thousand pages of never-before-released government documents.” Among the documents were more than 2,100 suspicious activity reports, or SARs, which banks and other financial institutions submitted to the US Treasury Department’s Financial Crimes Enforcement Network, or FinCEN, when they observe transactions that suggest money laundering or other illegal activity. Such reports can support investigations and intelligence gathering — but by themselves they are not evidence of a crime. The FinCen files included suspicious activity reports filed by nearly 90 financial institutions.

The FinCEN Files investigation reveals that global financial institutions, including HSBC, appeared to have facilitated $2 trillion of suspicious transactions that were flagged to the U.S. government over nearly two decades.

The report said banks such as HSBC, among others, engaged with and facilitated the movement of criminal money even after raising their suspicions.

On September 21, premarket, HSBC was trading down on heavy volume.

If you are a current stockholder, derivative, or options holder of HSBC and wish to learn more or discuss the issues surrounding the investigation, please contact David J. Schwartz using the toll-free number (800) 321-0476 or via email at dschwartz@labaton.com.

S&P Global Platts Launches First Sustainable Aviation Fuel Price Assessments in Americas

New Assessments Add Transparency and Aid Sector’s Energy Transition

PR Newswire

HOUSTON and NEW YORK, Sept. 21, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — S&P Global Platts (“Platts”), the leading independent provider of information and benchmark prices for the commodities and energy markets, today announced the launch of the first-to-market Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) price assessment for the Americas, aimed at bringing transparency to a developing market as the airline industry embraces energy transition. This follows the Platts launch of Europe’s first-ever independent price references for sustainable aviation fuel on August 17, 2020. 


Ian Dudden, Global Content Director, Metals and Agriculture at S&P Global Platts, said:
 “The commitment to decarbonisation is alive and well within the airline sector, despite the travel-related demand devastation brought about by the coronavirus pandemic. While the spot physical market for Sustainable Aviation Fuels is in its infancy, we’re pleased to be facilitating this market’s emergence with our new cost-based price assessments, which allow for side-by-side comparisons between hydrocarbon-based jet fuel and a green alternative.”

As recently as Sept. 14, 2020, the oneworld alliance of 13 major airlines around the world, along with their affiliates, pledged to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050. While members such as British Airways parent IAG, Japan Airlines, Qantas and Finnair had previously set such targets for themselves, they are now being joined by major US carrier American Airlines, also with Alaska Airlines as a oneworld member-elect. 

In the US and Canada, the aviation industry in 2019 accounted for around 5%, or nearly 300 million metric tons of total energy CO2 emissions annually, according to S&P Global Platts Analytics, equivalent to 250 kg of CO2 emitted per thousand passengers carried.

With increased focus on transitioning towards a lower carbon future, cleaner fuels are emerging as a compelling solution to achieve emissions reductions within the aviation sector itself, rather than through the purchase of outside offsets – even as consumer awareness grows around the environmental impact of transportation.


Roman Kramarchuk, head of energy scenarios, policy and technology, S&P Global Platts Analytics, said:
“Unlike any time in recent history, the world has experienced an industry-crippling destruction of travel and jet fuel demand due to the Covid-19 pandemic, which has had a profound effect in the Americas. Platts Analytics estimates a 35% reduction in US jet fuel consumption this year, but expects a path to recovery by mid-decade, though still remaining below the levels of recent years. New US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) efficiency standards for aircraft built in the United States could contribute to the continued improvement of the energy intensity of air travel in North America. But SAF uptake in the US is particularly incentivized through federal and state policies – with the ability to earn California Low Carbon Fuel Standard Credits, Federal Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) D4 Renewable Identification Numbers (RINs) and to take advantage of the federal biomass based diesel blenders tax credit – which together can total several dollars per gallon.”

SAF deliveries have been initiated at a number of US airports to fuel flights – with San Francisco and Los Angeles airports among the pioneers, and with Chicago O’Hare, Toronto and Montreal receiving batch deliveries. Facing demands for cleaner energy, some US refiners also have accelerated plans to retool refineries into renewable fuels plants, including Marathon and Phillips 66 refineries on the West Coast.

The new Platts Americas SAF assessments follow active market engagement with producers, consumers, traders and others in the Americas oil and biofuel markets, as the demand for sustainable aviation fuel has grown, as has supply sources.

The cost-based price assessment will be published from September 21, and will reflect the cost of SAF produced from tallow. The daily price assessments will be expressed in US dollars per gallon and reflect the production costs of SAFs for blending into jet fuel. The assessment assumptions will be calculated by S&P Global Platts Analytics based on existing Platts assessments and other fixed costs. The SAF inputs are costs of tallow and hydrogen, added to fixed renewable aviation fuel refinery costs, then deducting the by-products of naphtha, propane and diesel. Platts will also publish a US SAF value that takes into account environmental credits, by deducting the Renewable Identification Numbers under the US Renewable Fuel Standard, credits from the Low Carbon Fuel Standard administered by the California Air Resources Board and, when applicable, the US Biodiesel Tax Credit.

S&P Global Platts is committed to ongoing review of its methodology specifications and assumptions as the SAF market continues to develop and evolve and as Platts continues to engage with the marketplace.

Additional details about the S&P Global Platts Sustainable Aviation Fuel cost-based price assessment methodology can be found in the Subscriber Note: https://www.spglobal.com/platts/en/our-methodology/subscriber-notes/092120-platts-launches-us-west-coast-saf-ex-refinery-prices

Tints of Nature - Simply Healthier Hair Color: American Shoppers Look for Socially-Responsible Brands

Tints of Nature Organic Hair Color is Cruelty-Free, Vegan, and Socially Responsible

BOCA RATON, FL, Sept. 21, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — American shoppers have a conscious.

A 2019 study showed that 72 percent of Americans want companies that reflect their values. A 2018 study showed that 64 percent of consumers would switch, avoid, or boycott a brand based on its stand on societal issues.

“We are glad the world is catching up to us,” Raoul Perfitt, CEO and formulator of Tints of Nature, a United Kingdom company that manufactures natural, organic, cruelty-free, and vegan hair coloring systems. “We’ve been a socially responsible company since day one.”

Another important factor driving socially-responsible shoppers are Millennials, who already exhibit key shopping patterns, such as buying from corporations with pro-social messages, sustainable manufacturing methods, and ethical business standards.

“We have been a socially-responsible company since we founded Tints of Nature in the mid-1990s,” Perfitt said. “No animals are harmed. All of our products are cruelty-free and never tested on animals. We work with sustainable suppliers.

“Tints of Nature is internationally recognized by animal welfare organizations PETA and Choose Cruelty-Free as a cruelty-free brand,” Perfitt added. “We have learned that even non-vegan consumers are beginning to seek out vegan products.”

Tints of Nature, however, has not had to sacrifice quality in their products.

“We offer hair-salon level hair coloring. Our unique blend of natural and organic ingredients, combined with plant-derived extracts and vitamins C and E, will enhance, protect and moisturize as you color your hair,” Perfitt said.

Tints of Nature, which offers a line of permanent colors and semi-permanent henna colors, contain more than 75 percent certified organic and 95 percent naturally-derived ingredients. Tints of Nature does not contain ammonia, parabens, gluten, formaldehyde, propylene glycol, silicone, mineral oils, and color stripping salts.

“Since our hair coloring system is organic and plant-based, we avoid harsh chemicals whenever possible,” Perfitt said.

Tints of Nature is already available at many top retailers, such as Sprouts Farmers Market, but now plans to expand its retail distribution network throughout the United States. It is already available on Amazon and VitaBeauti.com, a popular health and wellness e-commerce portal.

CleanSpark Commissions Software on New Microgrid Featuring Tesla Batteries

PR Newswire

SALT LAKE CITY, Sept. 21, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — CleanSpark, Inc. (Nasdaq: CLSK), “the Company”, a diversified software and services company announced the commissioning of its software on a new solar plus storage microgrid project in Central America. CleanSpark is partnered with an energy developer to deploy this unique solution for Micro Technologies SA, a major international assembly and manufacturing company. This microgrid is for their new factory located in the San Jose, Alajuela Province of Costa Rica.

The local clean-energy developer focuses on distributed power generation, storage, and management. They have installed some of the first microgrids in Latin America. This collaborative project between the two companies will incorporate grid-tied solar and energy storage systems primarily to offset utility energy costs. The secondary function of the system is to provide backup power during utility outages from construction through commissioning of the complex, as well as when facility is fully operational.

CleanSpark is providing its patented mPulse controls with market-based forecasting and operation. The Company has also procured and will incorporate the Tesla (Nasdaq:TSLA) PowerPack 2 battery energy storage system which will provide 558kW/1115kWh storage. Additionally, the project’s solar installation includes 480kW AC, 531kW DC of PV (photovoltaic) solar panels. This represents the second microgrid located in Costa Rica with an mPulse controller paired with a Tesla energy storage solution.

MicroTech is a components and systems manufacturer for Fortune 500 companies which represent a multitude of industries including robotics, automotive, aerospace, and telecommunications. CleanSpark’s mPulse controller will provide MicroTech with a means of reducing utility operating costs. This is accomplished by storing and/or shifting solar production through operation of the Tesla Powerpack ensuring consistent operation and resiliency. In the event of a power disruption from the grid, the energy storage system will be utilized to provide backup electricity to the manufacturing facility. This will help significantly reduce the financial impact associated with power outages during the manufacturing process of these sensitive products and equipment. The utilization of the AC-coupled solar array, also operated and managed by CleanSpark’s mPulse software, will further extend the resiliency of the system.

Zach Bradford, CEO of CleanSpark commented, “We are extremely pleased to have partnered with local energy professionals on another microgrid project in Costa Rica. In addition to assisting the developer to provide resilient power and cost savings for MicroTech on a remote location, this system provides renewable clean-energy, an objective stated by the country of Costa Rica, in their pursuit of being powered by 100% renewables This edict is enthusiastically supported by CleanSpark and our local partners. We look forward to continuing to utilize our technologies to provide energy certainty, clean power, and cost avoidance throughout the region.”

National Litigation Firm Labaton Sucharow Announces Investigation of Standard Chartered PLC (Ticker: SCBFF) in the Wake of Money Laundering Allegations

National Litigation Firm Labaton Sucharow Announces Investigation of Standard Chartered PLC (Ticker: SCBFF) in the Wake of Money Laundering Allegations

NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–
Labaton Sucharow a global investor rights law firm, announces an investigation on behalf of purchasers of the securities of Standard Chartered PLC (Ticker: SCBFF).

On September 20, Buzzfeed reported a comprehensive investigation of global financial institutions, having obtained “twenty-two thousand pages of never-before-released government documents.” Among the documents were more than 2,100 suspicious activity reports, or SARs, which banks and other financial institutions submitted to the US Treasury Department’s Financial Crimes Enforcement Network, or FinCEN, when they observe transactions that suggest money laundering or other illegal activity. Such reports can support investigations and intelligence gathering — but by themselves they are not evidence of a crime. The FinCen files included suspicious activity reports filed by nearly 90 financial institutions.

In the September 20 report, Buzzfeed reported, among other things, that: Standard Chartered moved money on behalf of Al Zarooni Exchange, a Dubai-based business that was later accused of laundering cash on behalf of the Taliban. During the years that Al Zarooni was a Standard Chartered customer, Taliban militants staged violent attacks that killed civilians and soldiers.

On September 21, premarket, Standard Chartered was trading down.

National Litigation Firm Labaton Sucharow Announces Investigation of Deutsche Bank AG (NYSE: DB) in the Wake of Money Laundering Allegations

National Litigation Firm Labaton Sucharow Announces Investigation of Deutsche Bank AG (NYSE: DB) in the Wake of Money Laundering Allegations

NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–
Labaton Sucharow a global investor rights law firm, announces an investigation on behalf of purchasers of the securities of Deutsche Bank AG (NYSE: DB).

On September 20, Buzzfeed reported a comprehensive investigation of global financial institutions, having obtained “twenty-two thousand pages of never-before-released government documents.” Among the documents were more than 2,100 suspicious activity reports, or SARs, which banks and other financial institutions submitted to the US Treasury Department’s Financial Crimes Enforcement Network, or FinCEN, when they observe transactions that suggest money laundering or other illegal activity. Such reports can support investigations and intelligence gathering — but by themselves they are not evidence of a crime. The FinCen files included suspicious activity reports filed by nearly 90 financial institutions.

The FinCEN Files investigation reveals that Deutsche managers, including top executives, had direct knowledge for years of serious failings that left the bank vulnerable to money launderers. Documents show two warnings sent to committees that included Paul Achleitner, Deutsche’s chair, and one sent to the bank’s supervisory board.

Buzzfeed reports — Another top Deutsche executive, Christian Sewing, ran the audit division when one of its teams gave the Moscow office a clean bill of health, despite evidence that it could not even produce a list of its clients, let alone verify that they were who they said they were. Sewing is now Deutsche’s CEO.

On September 21, premarket, Deutsche Bank was trading down over 7% on heavy volume.

If you are a former or current stockholder, derivative, or options holder of Deutsche Bank and wish to learn more or discuss the issues surrounding the investigation, please contact David J. Schwartz using the toll-free number (800) 321-0476 or via email at dschwartz@labaton.com.
