A Beneficial Owner who took no action in respect of the Meeting can give instructions for the adjourned meeting by following the same procedure.


2. Participation in and Voting at the Meeting

In accordance with Article 94-2 and 94-3 of the law of 10th August, 1915 on commercial companies as amended and in accordance with the terms and conditions of the Bonds 2010, the quorum at the Meeting is 50% of the outstanding Bonds 2010. The resolutions will be passed by 2/3 of the votes cast by the bondholders present or represented.

The attention of Bondholders is particularly drawn to the fact that the meeting can take valid resolutions that will validly bind all the Bondholders (even those not represented at the meeting).

In addition, Article 94-5 of the law of 10th August, 1915 on commercial companies as amended provides that when a Bondholder representative has been appointed in accordance with the provisions of the law of 10th August, 1915 on commercial companies as amended, Bondholders may no longer exercise their rights individually.

As is customary for securities such as the Bonds 2010, the Bonds 2010 are generally held through banks or other financial institutions (“Intermediaries”) which have accounts with the clearing and depositary systems, Euroclear France ("Euroclear"), through which transactions in the Bonds 2010 are effected.

All of the Bonds 2010 are represented by a bearer global bond (the “Global Bond"). The Global Bond is presently held by Euroclear France.

Each person (a “Beneficial Owner”) who is the owner of a particular principal amount of the Bonds 2010, through Euroclear France or its respective account holders (the “Accountholders”), should be entitled to attend and vote at the Meeting in accordance with the procedures set out below.

Voting instructions may be delivered only through direct Accountholders with the type of vote: in favour of / against / abstain from the proposed resolutions and by stating the Principal Amount of Bonds 2010. A splitting of the resolutions is not accepted.

In order to obtain a voting certificate or instruct the Paying Agent to appoint a proxy to attend and vote at the Meeting (or any adjourned meeting, as the case may be) in accordance with a Bondholder’s instructions, an Accountholder must procure delivery of an electronic voting instruction, in accordance with the procedures of Euroclear France, to the relevant Paying Agent prior to the Expiration Time on the Expiration Date all of them as defined below.

If a Bondholder is not wishing to attend and vote at the Meeting or any adjourned such meeting in person, he can instruct the Paying Agent to appoint a proxy to attend and vote at the Meeting or any adjourned such meeting on his behalf with the type of vote: in favour of / against / abstain from the proposed resolutions. A splitting of the resolutions is not accepted.

Bondholders may also allow their voting right in the Bondholders meeting to be exercised by an authorized representative, e.g. allow another person of their choice to act as proxy. The authorizations must be issued in writing.

Beneficial Owners who are not Accountholders must arrange through their broker, dealer, commercial bank, custodian, trust company or other nominee to contact the Accountholder through which they hold their Bond(s) 2010 in order to procure delivery of their voting instructions via Euroclear France to the relevant Paying Agent prior to the Expiration Time on the Expiration Date.

The expiration time shall be 12.00 pm CET (the “Expiration Time”) of December 11, 2009 (the “Expiration Date”). The Company has the right to postpone the Expiration Date; in that case, notice of such postponement shall be given to the Bondholders.

Once the Paying Agent has issued a voting certificate for a meeting in respect of a Bonds 2010, it shall not release the Bond 2010 until either (i) the meeting has been concluded or (ii) the voting certificate has been surrendered to the Paying Agent. A vote cast in accordance with a block voting instruction may not be revoked or altered during the 48 hours before the time fixed for the meeting.

Beneficial Owners should note that they must allow sufficient time for compliance with the standard operating procedures of Euroclear France and, if applicable, such Accountholder in order to ensure delivery of their voting instructions to the Paying Agent in accordance with the time-frame set out in the present Notice. Beneficial Owners are urged to contact any such person promptly to ensure timely delivery of such voting instructions.

Once instructions to participate in the Meeting or to vote by proxy have been given, the Beneficial Owner’s interest in the Bonds 2010 will be blocked until the conclusion of the Meeting or the adjourned meeting. This means that it may not be possible to sell such Bonds 2010 until the conclusion of the Meeting or any adjourned meeting.

Any instructions to participate at the Meeting or to vote by proxy given by a Beneficial Owner will remain valid and effective for the adjourned meeting. Beneficial Owners who took no action in respect of the Meeting can give instructions for the adjourned meeting by following the same procedure set forth above.
