The first quarter is traditionally of low activity, the dividends being mainly received during the second quarter. Consequently, the quarter is not very representative for the whole year.

On March 21st, 2010, the balance sheet structure of the Compagnie is almost unchanged compared to that of December 31st, 2008.
