In the context of the worldwide financial crisis, our liquidity may be constrained.


As of December 31, 2008, the Group’s net debt amounted to €1.8 billion. In addition to debt outstanding, the Group has contracted a number of credit lines and put into place commercial paper and medium term note programs with the aim of providing liquidity. See “Item 11. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures about Market Risk.” In the context of a market-wide liquidity crisis, the Group may be faced with reduced access to sources of financing, including under programs currently in place, or less favorable conditions. Were our sources of financing to be substantially reduced, we cannot guarantee that the Group would be in a position to refinance existing debt or incur new debt on terms that we would consider to be commercially reasonable if at all.
