COMPANY STATEMENTS

* EFG International has reached an agreement with the U.S. Department of Justice, bringing its participation in the Category 2 U.S. Tax Programme to a close. The $30 million cost, however, was nearly triple what the bank had provided for, “primarily as a result of certain clients taking actions inconsistent with the information they had provided to EFG International,” EFG said in its release.

* Temenos Group AG will be adding chief operating officer to the title of Chief Financial Officer Max Chuard effective immediately, freeing up more of Chief Executive David Arnott’s time, the banking software maker said on Friday.

* Kleinkraftwerk Birseck AG is starting the new year with a new name: as of 2016, the green power producer will be known as Aventron. The company plans to grow its business, adding Spain to its country mix and increasing capacity to 500 megawatts by 2020 from a current 180 megawatt installed capacity.
