Takko: taking on Primark with new fascia

Following the success of Takko's three 1982 test stores, the retailer is extending the portfolio across Germany and the Benelux region. The store's fast-fashion offer and town center locations will directly compete with Primark. As well as attempting to curb Primark's growth, 1982 will enable Takko to attract a wider demographic and secure store locations in areas where Takko is underrepresented.

Targacept: potential shift in research focus for ADHD candidate

Targacept's investigational neuronal nicotinic receptor agonist has failed to meet its primary endpoint in a Phase II trial in adults with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. Datamonitor expects that future development focus for TC-5619 will shift towards schizophrenia, in view of Phase II data demonstrating efficacy in the treatment of cognitive dysfunction associated with the condition.

Tchibo's revitalization program fails to make an impact

Tchibo's sales have continued to contract, profits are down, and the management have continued to blame the discounters. Furthermore, with more and more store closures, and one failing initiative after another, the outlook for this beleaguered retailer is bleak.

Tchibo: hoping for H2 turnaround

Germany-based retail group Tchibo Holding's first half results have suffered from the impact of hard discounters Aldi and Lidl on non-food sales. Top line sales at Tchibo declined by 4% during the half to E1.7 billion, while EBIT dropped 57%. Tchibo needs to speed up its premium repositioning to achieve an improved second half performance.

Tchibo: tensions among the board members

According to newspaper reports, a parting of the ways between Tchibo and its CEO seems increasingly likely. Suffering from the non-food assault of the hard discounters, Tchibo could combat declining sales by leveraging the significant synergy potential the Beiersdorf acquisition has given the coffee maker and retailer. This strategy change might require a new face at the top.

TeGenero Mab causes shock side-effects in UK trial

A phase I UK clinical trial of TeGenero's TGN1412 has stirred up a storm of controversy after trial participants suffered serious adverse events soon after taking the drug. While this event could have a number of implications for drug developers, it needs to be weighed against the need for new medicines, especially in chronic disorders.

TeGenero: bankruptcy beckons

German biotech firm TeGenero has filed for bankruptcy just four months after a catastrophic safety trial with its immunomodulatory drug candidate TGN1412 left six healthy volunteers fighting for their lives. However, this does not necessarily signal the end for TGN1412, which may still have a future if anyone is brave enough to take it on for further research.

Telefonica/Sonera: Quam-ing customers onboard

Quam (once Group 3G) is currently acting as an MVNO, reselling E-Plus' 2G services. Its aim is to win a customer base now, and migrate users to its own 3G services late next year. But while this is a good customer acquisition strategy, it is also certain to be expensive. It looks like Germany's 3G market will not be a good place to make money for some years.

Telefonica/Sonera: ungrouping in 3G

Telefonica and Sonera have axed their German joint venture Group 3G, which traded as Quam. But although it shows how hostile the German mobile market is to new entrants, the closure shouldn't be taken to mean that 3G is dead in Europe. For firms with large enough resources and customer bases, data services should still offer the chance to make money.
