In a research paper published on Thursday, Curtis Deutsch and other bright minds of oceanography at Standford University Jonathan Payne and Erik Sperling, it was discovered that a massive cataclysm of marine species occurred 252 million years ago leaving only 4% of them behind. And that's not all, over two thirds of the terrestrial life was also wiped out in that great extinction. According to the paper, these massive wipe outs of organisms were as a result of the huge spike in temperature...

RACINE, Wis., Dec. 07, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- *JOHNSON OUTDOORS INC. (NASDAQ: JOUT), *a leading global innovator of outdoor recreation equipment and technology, today announced all-time high revenue and earnings for the second consecutive fiscal year. Strong marketplace demand for new products in the Company’s core Fishing and Diving brands propelled an 11 percent increase in sales as operating profit grew 38 percent and net income rose 16 percent over the prior fiscal year. The seasonally slow fourth quarter net sales nearly equaled prior year results.“Unprecedented growth in our flagship Fishing business has driven record results two years in a row on the strength of revolutionary, consumer driven innovation. Our goal is consistent bigger, better new product success like this across our entire brand portfolio,” said Helen Johnson-Leipold, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.
“Importantly, deeper, richer consumer understanding is at the core of everything we do. Going forward, our ability to connect with more consumers in new, more meaningful ways will enable us to fully leverage and maximize investments in digital transformation, marketing sophistication and ecommerce to enhance performance in all segments and channels. Much progress has been made in transforming Johnson Outdoors for future success in a changing marketplace. More work and more investment will be needed to ensure continued sustainable growth and profitability.”
*FISCAL 2018 HIGHLIGHTS *
· New product success
· Sustained momentum in Fishing and Diving
· Enhanced digital sophistication
· Strong cash flow and a debt-free balance sheet
· Increased quarterly dividend to shareholders
*FISCAL 2018 RESULTS*
Total Company net sales grew 11 percent to $544.3 million versus fiscal 2017 net sales of $490.6 million. New product demand across the Company’s Fishing, Diving and Camping brands more than offset declines in Watercraft Recreation. Key factors in the year-over-year comparison were:
· Exceptional new product performance fueled double-digit revenue growth in Minn Kota^® and Humminbird^® brands in all key categories, channels and markets.
· Continued momentum for award-winning innovation in life-support categories gave a 3 percent boost to SCUBAPRO^® brand sales.
· Growth in Eureka^® and Jetboil^® brands nearly offset the loss of sales resulting from the divestiture of the non-core Silva brand.
· Kayak market declines across all segments and channels negatively impacted Watercraft Recreation revenue.
Operating profit soared to a record-high $63.0 million, a 38 percent increase over $45.6 million in the prior fiscal year, due to significantly higher sales volume and margin improvement year-over-year. Higher volume-related expenses and increased digital marketing expenditures and R&D investment primarily accounted for the year-over-year uptick in operating expense dollars. As a percent of sales, fiscal 2018 operating expense declined versus fiscal 2017.
Net income for the fiscal year increased 16 percent to $40.7 million, or $4.05 per diluted share, versus $35.2 million, or $3.51 per diluted share, last fiscal year. The effective tax rate of 40.3 percent reflects $8.4 million in charges resulting from changes in accounting for taxes prompted by U.S. tax reform legislation enacted during the fiscal year.
*FOURTH QUARTER RESULTS*
Due to the seasonality of the warm-weather outdoor recreation equipment industry, the Company’s fourth quarter results reflect the industry-wide slowing of sales and production. Total Company net sales in the quarter dipped slightly year-over-year to $91.1 million, a decline of less than 1 percent. Operating loss was ($2.0 million) in the current year fourth quarter versus ($0.1 million) in the prior fourth quarter, primarily due to continued digital investments. Net loss of ($5.0 million), or ($0.49) per diluted share in the current year quarter compared unfavorably to net income of $0.6 million, or $0.06 per diluted share, in the prior year quarter.
*OTHER FINANCIAL INFORMATION *
The Company reported cash and short-term investments of $150.6 million as of September 28, 2018, a $40.2 million jump above the prior year, with no debt on its balance sheet. Depreciation and amortization was flat year-over-year at $13.1 million. Capital spending totaled $19.2 million in fiscal 2018 compared with $11.6 million in fiscal 2017.
“Looking ahead to next year, while we expect revenue to grow, recently enacted tariffs are estimated to have a negative impact of $6.0 - $9.0 million on fiscal 2019 operating profit, which includes foreseeable mitigation efforts at this time. In addition, we expect our fiscal 2019 tax rate to decline, reflecting the reduction in the US federal corporate income tax rate,” said David W. Johnson, Chief Financial Officer.
The Company will host a conference call and audio web cast at 11:00 a.m. Eastern Time on Friday, December 7, 2018. A live listen-only web cast of the conference call may be accessed at Johnson Outdoors’ home page. A replay of the call will be available for 30 days on the Internet.

Canada’s hospitality event of the year shares upcoming food and dining trends
Toronto, Dec. 07, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Restaurants Canada has just released a carefully curated list of the top food and dining trends you can expect to see at the 2019 RC Show, Canada’s largest foodservice and hospitality trade event.
The upcoming RC Show is leading the conversation around the true meaning of sustainability for the restaurant and hospitality industry. Recognizing that the future of foodservice is tied to the health of the planet as much as healthy profit margins, here’s a look ahead at the culinary and technological innovations coming to kitchens and menus near you:
1. Root-to-Stem Cooking — A new trend addressing food waste has taken root. Like the nose-to-tail practice when cooking meat, root-to-stem cooking focuses on vegetables and making use of all the parts we’d typically remove and throw away. Chefs have found that ingredients like broccoli stalks and leaves, beet greens, asparagus stems, carrot tops, jackfruit cores etc. all bring unique tastes, textures and colours to a dish and are 100% edible.
2. Restaurant Robotics — Bring on the bots! In 2019, a new generation of gizmos, gadgets, autonomous robots and artificially intelligent technologies will be making their way into our dining experiences. Innovations like the hands-free sushi-making machines from AUTEC and Sally from Chowbotics — the robot that serves customizable made-to-order salads, snacks, breakfast bowls and grain bowls — are revealing that the future is here, and the kitchen is evolving faster than ever. Expect everything from robots delivering meals, to AI providing training, to ordering systems replacing waiters and cashiers.
3. Clean Motherless Meat — As more and more meat lovers are becoming opposed to eating animals and concerned about the impact that raising livestock has on the environment, interest is growing in innovative alternatives. Lab-grown meats, or “clean meat”, is meat grown from small samples of muscle tissue from animals like cows, pigs, chickens etc. These small samples are then combined with stem cells to multiply growth and generate large amounts of meat without having to raise and kill any animals. Companies like Memphis Meats are working to get these products to market as soon as possible, and are expected to greatly impact the world by reducing water usage, taking up less land and significantly cutting greenhouse gas emissions.
4. Incredible Edibles — Now that Canada has become the second country to legalize recreational use of the herb nationwide, interest in cannabis is taking the country’s hospitality industry by storm. With regulations around edibles expected in 2019, new doors might be opening for chefs to introduce this green to their menus. With the potential for infusing dishes and beverages just around the corner, the possibilities are endless, and consumer expectations are high.
5. We Sea Greens — This year, expect to see more marine greens — anything from kelp noodles and jerky to fish alternatives made from algae. Seaweeds have been found to be a natural source of vitamins A, B1, B2, C, D and E, as well as being rich in minerals like zinc, iodine, magnesium, iron, copper, potassium and calcium. Turns out the ocean floor is a literal breeding ground for healthy, green ingredients with unique flavours that will add diversity to menu offerings.
6. The Plant-Based Movement — If you aren’t adventurous enough to test out lab-developed meat, you will still have a growing number of plant-based protein options in 2019. EcoIdeas Organic Jackfruit is working to bring innovative plant-based food to the mainstream with their delicious and convenient alternatives to meat dishes. With ingredients like heme and innovative products like Beyond Meat, as well as plant-based milks derived from pea protein and barley proving to be worthy animal product replacements, the future is looking greener than ever.
7. Pretty Please, Without Sugar — Once upon a time we were fighting against fat and now another opponent is in our crosshairs — sugar. The quest for creative ways to reduce sugar and sugary counterparts continues in 2019. We will start to see chefs substituting sugar, honey and agave on their menus for equally sweet but more nutritious alternatives such as carrot, sweet potato, golden beet, butternut squash and corn.
8. Culinary Cocktails — Forget the fruity and sweet. In 2019 we’ll be sipping on endless, refreshing blends of juiced herbs and vegetables, edible flowers, and splashes of tequila, brandy, rum or vodka. The bar industry has seen a shift in pallet from sweet to savoury. This can be attributed to the introduction of bitters and the resurgence of spirits like amaro, vermouth and sherry. The food and hospitality industry’s move to more sustainable practises can also be credited for these bar glass innovations, as chefs now have uses for the leaves and stems and veggies that aren’t quite plate perfection. Culinary cocktails have been popping up all over Canada’s finest bars and cocktail lounges. These drinks stray away from the typical tastes and work to bridge the gap between bar and kitchen by incorporating flavours and techniques used in dishes, all to provide customers with a flavourful experience from glass to plate.
9. In and Out — Kale has officially outstayed its welcome! In 2019 you can expect to see this leafy green replaced by gut flora-friendly ingredients, such as dandelion greens — a natural prebiotic — and amaranth — a hypoallergenic grain substitute for wheat, both pushing the notion that food really is medicine. Other trends you can expect to see making their way into your dining experiences include: oat milk and other dairy alternatives, dry and hot pot cooking, more substitutions for diners with food sensitivities, creative approaches to reducing waste from single-use items, virtual restaurants and cloud-based dining, spice palettes from countries such as Kazakhstan, Tajikstan, Azerbaijan, Uzbekistan, plus edible flowers are back — and they’ll be in your water glass!
You can check out these trends and more at the upcoming RC Show taking place from February 24-26, 2019 at the Enercare Centre in Toronto. To learn more or to register for media accreditation, please visit rcshow.com.

Dublin, Dec. 07, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "2019 Intellectual Property Litigation Hourly Rate Report" report has been added to *ResearchAndMarkets.com's* offering.The 2019 Intellectual Property Litigation Rate Report TM analyzes the hourly rates of Attorneys specializing in Copyright, Patent and Trademark Litigation from over 200 Law Firms. The Report has 6 Sections: 1) Overall Rates by Firm Revenue Groups 2) Overall Rates by Individual Firms 3) Practice Area (Copyright, Patent and Trademark) Rates by Individual Firms 4) Companies Represented and Overall Rates Billed by Their Outside Counsel.
IP matters especially Patent litigation, representing two-thirds of all IP litigation, continue to grow annually and will continue to do so in 2019 by an estimated 5% over 2018 matters. Rates will also increase overall but with some discounting (10% or more).
A word on the publisher's research and compilation methodology. The publisher has a research team that identifies hourly rates that are publicly disclosed. About 2,000 hourly rates per week of Attorneys and Support Staff for over 1,200 Law Firms globally are added to the database. Further research is required to connect the dots by adding detailed Attorney Profile information and linking the legal work performed to specific Clients and Client Industries.
Through this process we are able to provide actionable data to users - Law Firms and Corporate Counsel - of the the publisher Attorney Hourly Rates and our Analytical Reports, including this one, to make important monetary decisions in terms of legal services offered and purchased. In terms of the Report, not all timekeepers will appear in every year so sometimes average rates may vary; in this case the trend line and averages over the 2014 - 2019 period are the best indicators.
In the event that the publisher has no rates for a given field (Year or Position), an algorithm is used to estimate a rate or rates. In Sections 5 and 6, Engagement Summaries by Client and Law Firm, respectively, those averages are Blended (Total Fees divided by Total Hours for all Timekeepers).
The publisher considers Senior Partners to be ones with 25+ years of experience from law school graduation, Partners with 24 years or less experience and Senior Associates with 5 years or more experience. Of course, those experience levels may vary by Firm but seem to work for both Large Law Firms and Middle-Market ones.

Nobody likes the high operating costs associated with gas-guzzling SUVs or the horrid smell that results from commercial trucks and buses spewing diesel exhaust. But internal combustion engines, along with their high costs and heavy pollutants, have been both a necessity and part of our reality for decades. But times are changing. And thanks to a multi-year decline in the cost of lithium-ion batteries, aggressive policy support from governments around the world, and increased commitment from leading automakers, we finally see momentum building behind the transition from internal combustion engines to electric vehicles (EV). According to Bloomberg’s NEF Electric Vehicle Outlook for 2018, sales of EVs will increase from a record 1.1 million units worldwide in 2017, to 11 million in 2025, and then exploding to 30 million in 2030 as the costs to manufacture EVs fall to beneath that of internal combustion engine vehicles. Bloomberg’s EV report went to say that by 2040, 55% of all new car sales and 33% of commercial vehicles will be electric. Simply put, we’re in the first inning of a likely extended innings ball game when it comes to the transition and migration from internal combustion engines to EVs. A diversified approach Longmont, Colorado-based UQM Technologies Inc (NYSE: UQM) is a $65 million company that “develops, manufactures, and sells power dense, high-efficiency electric motors, generators, electronic power controllers and fuel cell compressors for the commercial truck, bus, automotive, marine, and industrial markets.” In simpler terms, UQM makes motors and propulsion systems for electric vehicles. UQM isn’t a one product company, and they’re not locked into selling only within their backyard. In fact, when UQM hosted investors and analysts on its third quarter 2018 conference call, CEO Joe Mitchell made a point of highlighting the strong growth across the company’s propulsion systems, auxiliary products, and engineering services divisions, and underscoring several essential developments that relate to the company’s work in China and India. Mitchell highlighted UQM’s continued shipment of explosion-proof E-drive systems to the Chinese commercial vehicle manufacturer KESHI, as well as his company’s initial deliveries of fuel cell compressor systems to several new customers. Away from China, Mitchell discussed UQM’s continued delivery of PowerPhase DT electric drivetrains to the Indian automotive giant, Ashok Leyland Ltd, as well as his company’s ongoing worth with Meritor Inc (NYSE:MTOR), Lightning Systems, and Proterra. Under the leadership of CEO Joe Mitchell, UQM is actively executing its growth plan, nurturing customer relationship in strategic areas around the globe, and laying the foundation to take advantage of what is likely to be years of growth as cities, states, and countries transition away from internal combustion engines and toward cleaner and more efficient electric vehicles. Tripped up by Trump’s tariffs Long before President Trump went to war with Chinese President Xi over his country’s trade practices, UQM signed a joint venture (JV) agreement with China National Heavy Duty Truck Group Co. (CNHTC) and Sinotruk Global Village Investment Ltd, a Hong Kong-based LLC owned by CNHTC. Now, UQM’s strategic partnership and joint venture with CNHTC was a multifaceted arrangement. Part one involved CNHTC giving UQM more than $5 million in cash for a 9.9% stake in the company. Part two, which required approval by the committee on foreign investment in the United States (CFIUS), would transfer 34% of UQM’s outstanding shares to CNHTC in exchange for a $28.3 million investment. And part three revolved around the formation of a mutually beneficial joint venture between UQM and CNHTC. Under the JV agreement, UQM was to be a 25% partner with an option to increase its ownership to 33% after the first year of operation. UQM would contribute $6 million of the venture’s $24 million cost. A seemingly steep sum for such a tiny company. But according to UQM’s management, the joint venture would have a production capacity of 50,000 E-drives and E-axles. And production of that magnitude would be HUGE for a company the size of UQM. When the joint venture was signed here’s what UQM’s CEO Joe Mitchell said about the transaction: “Our strategy for many years has been to align ourselves with a Chinese partner that would enable us to have a local manufacturing presence in China. This JV agreement gives us the opportunity to manufacture and sell our electric propulsion systems to the largest market in the world for electric vehicles.” Unfortunately, on March 5, 2018, UQM and CNHTC were forced to withdraw and abandon their application to CFIUS for investment approval when the government committee informed UQM that: “The second stage investment [the $28.3 million cash for stock swap] would likely not be approved in its current form.” Now, abandoning this JV was a blow to UQM’s business. The tiny company needed the cash and, likely, may need to sell stock (or issue debt) to raise some money over the next 12 months to further their growth initiatives. That said, the CFIUS setback isn’t a death blow, and the company appears to be taking it in stride as they work with their Chinese partners to further their business relationship. On the road to profitability When UQM Technologies reported third-quarter financial results Wednesday, October 31, what stood out was its impressive top-line revenue growth. Thanks to a surge in product sales and the addition of contract services (which didn’t exist in the year-ago period) UQM reported a 59% surge, from $2.8 million to $4.4 million, in year-over-year revenue. And while growth in the top line failed to produce a positive bottom line figure, the company appears to be on the right path. Here’s what David Rosenthal, UQM’s CFO, had to say about his company’s performance during the November 1 conference call: “Top-line results were at record levels, and we’ve achieved sales of nearly $9 million year-to-date which tops 2017’s revenue in total. The third quarter was another excellent one for UQM with record sales, including a strong service component and a positive outlook on order trends heading in 2019. We will continue to manage cash appropriately while investing in the business and ramping up production which should lead to higher margins on our path to profitability.” The biggest hurdle UQM most overcome on its path to profitability is managing its costs and margins while the business transitions from prototype work to long-term, high-volume production. Provided UQM can meet the future demand of a rocky and unpredictable EV market, it’s the jump from single unit sales to more significant, high volume orders, that should light a fire under UQM’s top and bottom line growth. An improving chart After a spectacular 250% advance from May through November in 2017, UQM has been trapped in a trading range between $1 and $1.50. But I believe the stock is building energy to break above its October 2018 $1.50 swing high and push up toward its March 2014 $3.45 swing high. Now, the most critical part of UQM’s technical development will be a close above $1.50. But I’m not interested in a single daily close above the October swing high. I want to see a weekly close above $1.50 at a bare minimum. As the stock gains acceptance above $1.50 we’ll see a near 10-year downtrend line broken, a new bull trend in shares of UQM take hold, and an upside target of $3.45 become a logical and realistic possibility. The bottom line is Joe Mitchell is making all the right moves to position UQM for long-term success in the electric vehicle revolution. At the time of publication, Bob Byrne had no positions in the stocks mentioned.

Outdoor recreation equipment specialist Johnson Outdoors (NASDAQ:JOUT) said the success of its fishing and diving equipment division offset the seasonally slow fiscal fourth quarter. The Racine, Wisconsin-based outdoor gear company enjoyed revenue growth for its Minn Kota, Humminbird, Scubapro, Jetboil and Eureka product lines, which lifted group sales for fiscal 2018 by 11% to $544.3 million from $490.6 million the year before. Unprecedented growth in fishing business drove record results However, Kayak market declines across all channels negatively impacted watercraft recreation revenue. Fishing and diving brands propelled an 11% increase in sales as operating profit grew 38% and net income rose 16% over the prior fiscal year. “Unprecedented growth in our flagship fishing business has driven record results two years in a row. Our goal is consistent bigger, better new product success like this across our entire brand portfolio,” Johnson Outdoors CEO Helen Johnson-Leipold said in a statement. “Going forward, our ability to connect with more consumers in new, more meaningful ways will enable us to fully leverage investments in digital transformation, marketing sophistication and ecommerce to enhance performance in all segments,” she added. Due to the seasonality of warm weather outdoor recreation equipment industry, the company’s fourth quarter reflected industry-wide slowing of sales and production. For the quarter ended September 2018, the company reported a loss of $2 million, or $0.49 per share on revenue of $91.1 million, primarily due to seasonality and “digital investments.” The consensus estimate was a loss of $0.05 per share on revenue of $94.9 million. Revenue fell 0.7% compared to the same quarter a year ago. Johnson Outdoors is engaged in the design, manufacture and marketing of brand name outdoor equipment, diving, watercraft and marine electronics products. Shares in Johnson Outdoor toppled nearly 19% to $55.71. Contact Uttara Choudhury at firstname.lastname@example.org Follow her on Twitter: @UttaraProactive
