3. General Comment
The 2005-1 warrant exercisable from 10 to 20 June 2012 at EUR 239.00 per share is currently out of the cash and will expire and without value at the date of the capital reduction.
The adjustment of the procedures for converting the Compagnie du Bois Sauvage bond and the strike price of Compagnie du Bois Sauvage warrants and stock options result from the application of the anti-dilution clauses mentioned in the prospectus of the various issues and in the Stock option plan.
