INFORMATION ON VOTING PROCEDURES AND REGISTRATION OF ADDITIONAL DRAFT RESOLUTIONS

Any request for the registration of additional, draft resolutions may be made by those shareholders meeting the conditions set out by article 128 of the 23 March 1967 decree number 67-236, as amended on 11 December 2006, by sending a registered letter to the registered office of the Company no later than twenty-five days ahead of the meeting date. A certificate of ownership in the Company’s shares must be attached to such requests.

In accordance with article 136 of the above-mentioned decree, any shareholder of a company whose shares are admitted to trading on a regulated market or to performing transactions of a central depositary is entitled to participate to a meeting of the shareholders provided that the shares he holds in the Company be registered in his name no later than three business days before the date of the shareholders’ meeting at 00.00 CET, either with the Company’s share registrar for shares registered in the name of the shareholder, or with a registered intermediary entitled to keep securities’ accounts.

The record of bearer shares in securities’ accounts kept by a registered intermediary is duly evidenced by a certificate which may be delivered by the registered intermediary, including by electronic means, which has to be attached to the postal vote form, the proxy statement, or to the request to get an entrance card mentioning the name of the shareholder or the name of the registered intermediary which represents the shareholder. That certificate may also be delivered to the shareholder willing to attend the meeting should he not have received his entrance card at 00.00 CET on the third business day immediately preceding the meeting date.

Should they not be in a position to attend the meeting, shareholders may give a mandate to their spouse or any other shareholder of the Company, send a proxy statement to the Company, or vote by postal vote.

Any shareholder who has followed any of the above-mentioned procedures may still dispose of part of all of the shares he holds in the Company. However, should such disposal occur no later than 00.00 CET on the third business day immediately preceding the meeting date, the Company will be entitled to cancel or amend the postal vote, proxy statement, entrance card or certificate of participation of the shareholder based on information of such disposal provided by the registered intermediary to the Company or its share registrar. The registered intermediary has no obligation to notify the Company of any share disposal or other types of share transactions which would be entered into after 00.00 CET on the third business day immediately preceding the meeting date, even in the existence of an agreement providing for the opposite.

A single form which may be used either to vote by proxy statement or by postal vote will be mailed to all shareholders who have registered their shares with the Company’s share registrar.

Shareholders may obtain the documents set out in articles 133 and 135 of the above mentioned decree by sending a request in writing to CACEIS Corporate Trust, 14 rue Rouget de Lisle, 92862 Issy-les-Moulineaux Cedex 09 (France). These documents will also be available for inspection at the registered office of the Company.

Should a shareholder decide to vote by postal vote, he will no longer be entitled to vote by proxy statement or attend the meeting in person.

The postal voting form shall be sent to CACEIS Corporate Trust no later than three days ahead of the meeting date.

In accordance with provisions of article 135-1 of the above-mentioned decree, any shareholder is entitled to put questions in writing to the Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Company from the date of issue of this notice. Such questions shall be asked by sending a registered letter to the registered office of the Company no later than four business days ahead of the meeting date. A certificate of ownership in the Company’s shares must be attached to such requests.

The present notice is valid as the notice of the meeting, provided that no modifications are made to the agenda subsequent to requests for the registration of draft resolutions submitted by shareholders.
