In the case of a transfer decided by the Executive Board in compliance with the law, the board is authorised to modify the articles of association accordingly.

Article 5 - Duration

The duration of the Company is set at ninety-nine (99) years as from the date on which it is registered in the trade and company register, except in the case of early dissolution or extension.

Article 6 - Registered capital

The registered capital is set at 4,708,416.54 euros.

It is divided into 70,626,248 ordinary shares with a par value of 1/15th of a euro each, all fully paid-up and all of the same category.

Article 7 - Share type

The fully paid-up shares are either registered shares or bearer shares, at the choice of each shareholder in his own case, subject to the application of the relative legal provisions concerning the form of shares held by certain natural or legal persons. Shares which are not fully paid-up are obligatorily registered shares.

The shares are registered in an account in accordance with the terms and conditions specified in the applicable legal and statutory texts.

The ownership of shares issued as registered shares results from their registration in a named account.

Article 8 - Share transfers - Identification of the bearers of the shares -Thresholds exceeded

The shares registered in the accounts may be transferred freely by means of account-to-account transfers, pursuant to the applicable legal and statutory provisions.

Moreover, in accordance with the applicable legal and statutory provisions, the company may request from any authorised body, subject to remuneration at its own cost, the name (or the company name in the case of a legal person), nationality and address of the owners of shares immediately or eventually possessing voting rights at its own shareholders' meetings, in addition to the quantity of shares held by each of them and, where applicable, the restrictions which may apply to these shares.

3

Any natural or legal person acting alone or collectively, who directly or indirectly comes into possession of a fraction equivalent to three per cent (3%) of the capital or voting rights in the company, in any manner whatsoever, under the terms of Articles L. 233-7et seq. of the French Commercial Code, must supply the company with the information mentioned in Article L. 233-7-1 of the French Commercial Code by means of a registered letter with acknowledgement of receipt, or by any other equivalent means for persons residing outside France, addressed to the head office within a period of four stock market trading days as from the date on which the above-mentioned threshold was exceeded.

This obligation also applies in accordance with the conditions mentioned above, whenever a new threshold of 1% of the registered capital or voting rights in the company is reached or exceeded, regardless of the reason for this, including beyond the legal threshold of 5%.

All shareholders whose holdings in terms of capital or voting rights falls below one of the thresholds provided for above is also required to inform the company of this within the same deadline of four stock market trading days, by the same means.

Should these requirements not be respected, following a request by one or several shareholders holding at least five per cent of the capital or voting rights in the company, the shares exceeding the fraction which should have been declared will be stripped of voting rights for all shareholders' meetings held until the expiry of a period of two years following the date on which proper notification of this was issued.

Article 9 - Rights and obligations pertaining to the shares

The rights and obligations pertaining to a share follow the share from owner to owner and the transfer includes all dividends due and unpaid and those coming due and, where applicable, the share of the reserves and provisions.

The ownership of the share automatically constitutes the bearer's approval of these articles of association in addition to the decisions of the general shareholders' meetings.

Except in the event that the law states otherwise, each shareholder has as many voting rights and may wield as many votes in meetings as the number of shares he owns, for which all required sums are fully paid-up. At an equal face value, each capital share or dividend-right share creates an entitlement to one vote.

Each share creates a share in the company's assets, in the sharing of profits and in the liquidation surplus proportional to the number and face value of the existing shares.

The General Manager shall, subject always to any applicable laws and regulations relating to the central securities depository system concerned and these Articles, has the power to implement and/or approve any arrangements he may, in his absolute discretion, think fit in relation to (without limitation) the evidencing of ownership of any rights attached to the Company's shares and any transfer of such rights in any form (in the form of a deposit, Instruments or securities). The General Manager may from

4

time to time take such actions and do such things as they may, in his absolute discretion, think fit in relation to the operation of any such arrangements.

Article 10 - Paying up the shares

The sums to be disbursed in order to pay up the subscribed shares in cash during a capital increase are payable in accordance with the conditions stipulated by the Special General Meeting.

During a capital increase, the initial payment may not be less than one quarter of the face value of the shares. When applicable it includes the entire issue premium.

The Executive Board will issue a call for the payment of the balance in one or several instalments, within a period of five years as from the date on which the capital increase is performed.

The portions for which payment is required, and the date by which the corresponding sums must be paid, will be notified to each shareholder at least 15 days before the payment due date.

Any shareholder who fails to make the required payments by the payment due dates for the shares for which he is the holder will automatically be required to pay the company late payment interest as of right, and with no prior notice, calculated on a daily basis, based on a year of 365 days, as from the payment due date, at the official business rate plus three percentage points, without prejudice to any action the company may wish to take against the defaulting shareholder and any enforcement measures provided for by law.

Article 11 - The Executive Board

The company is administered by a board comprised of natural or legal persons, the number of which is set by the ordinary general meeting, in accordance with the limits established by law.

At the time of its appointment, any legal person must nominate a natural person as the permanent representative to the Executive Board. The length of the representative's term of office is the same as that of the term of office of the legal person he represents. When the legal person revokes its permanent representative, it must immediately replace him. The same provisions apply in the event of the death or resignation of the permanent representative.

The board members are appointed for a term of three years. The board member's term of office ends at the end of the ordinary General Shareholders' Meeting having ruled on the accounts for the financial year gone by and held during the year in which the said board member's term of office expires.

The board members are always eligible for re-appointment. They may be revoked at any time by means of a decision by the General Shareholders' Meeting.

In the event that one or several seats on the board become vacant following the death or resignation of board members, the Executive Board may proceed with appointments on a provisional basis, between two General Meetings

5

The appointments made by the board under the terms of the paragraph above will be submitted to the next ordinary general meeting for ratification.

Should these not be ratified, the decisions taken and the acts accomplished previously by the board nevertheless remain valid.

When the number of board members falls below the legal minimum, the remaining board members must immediately call an ordinary general meeting in order to appoint the required number of new board members.

An employee of the company may be appointed as a board member. His contract of employment must however correspond to an actual job. In this case, he does not lose the benefits of his contract of employment.

The number of board members working for the company by means of a contract of employment may not exceed one third of the serving board members.

The number of board members aged over 70 may not exceed one third of the serving board members. When this threshold is exceeded during the term of office, the oldest board member is automatically considered to have resigned at the end of the next General Shareholders' Meeting.

The Executive Board will elect a Chairman from among its members who should be a natural person. It determines the length of his term of office, which may not exceed that of his term of office as a board member, and may revoke him at any time. His remuneration will be set by the Board.

The Chairman organises and manages the board's work and reports back to the general meeting. He ensures the satisfactory operation of the various company bodies and in particular ensures that the board members are in a position to fulfil their mission.

The Chairman of the board may not be aged more than 75 years old. If the Chairman reaches this maximum age limit during his term of office as Chairman, he will automatically be considered to have resigned.

His term of office will however continue until the next Executive Board meeting during which his successor will be appointed. Subject to this clause, the Chairman of the Board is always eligible for re-appointment.

Article 12 - Executive Board meetings

The Executive Board will meet as often as the company's interests require.

The Board members are invited to the Board meetings by the Chairman. The invitation may be issued by all means, in writing or verbally.

The General Manager may also ask the Chairman to call a Board meeting based on a specific agenda.

6

Furthermore, board members representing at least one third of the members of the board may validly call a board meeting. In this case, they must state the agenda for the meeting.

When a works' council exists, the representatives of this council appointed pursuant to the French Labour Code must be invited to all Executive Board meetings.

Board meetings are held either at the head office or at any other location in France or outside France.

In order for the decisions taken by the board to be considered valid, at least half of the members must be present.

The Executive Board's decisions will be taken based on majority voting. In the event of a tied vote, the person chairing the session will have the casting vote.

Internal rules possibly adopted by the Executive Board may state among other things that when calculating the quorum and the majority, board members participating in the board meeting by video- conferencing or other telecommunication methods pursuant to applicable regulations are considered present. This provision will not apply for the adoption of decisions covered by Articles L. 232-1 and L. 233-16 of the French Commercial Code.

Each Board member will receive the information necessary to fulfilling his mission and his mandate, and may obtain copies of all documents he considers useful.

Any board member may grant an authorisation to another board member, by letter, telegram, telex, fax, e-mail or any other remote transmission method, to represent him at a Board meeting but each Board member may only possess a single proxy vote at each meeting.

Copies or extracts of the Executive Board decisions may be validly certified by the Chairman of the Executive Board, the General Manager, Board member temporarily fulfilling the Chairman's duties or a person duly authorised to this effect.

Article 13 - The Executive Board's powers

The Executive Board determines the guidelines for the company's activities and ensures that these are implemented. Subject to the powers expressly attributed to shareholders' meetings and within the limitations of the corporate purpose, it will handle any issues concerning the satisfactory operation of the company and via its decisions will settle all matters concerning it.

In its dealings with third parties, the company will be bound by the acts of the Executive Board even when these do not fall within the perimeter of the corporate purpose, unless it is able to prove that the third party in question was aware that the act exceeded this purpose or could not fail to be aware of it in view of the circumstances, with the publication of the articles of association alone being considered insufficient to constitute such proof.

The Executive Board may perform or organise any inspections and verifications it considers appropriate.

7

Additionally, the Executive Board will also exercise the special powers conferred upon it by law.

Article 14 - General management

The general management of the company is assumed, under his responsibility, either by the Chairman of the Executive Board or another natural person appointed by the Executive Board and bearing the title of General Manager.

The General Manager possesses the widest possible powers to act in all circumstances in the name of the company. He exercises his powers within the limits of the corporate purpose and subject to those powers attributed by law to shareholders' meetings and to the Executive Board.

He represents the company in its dealings with third parties. The company will be bound by the acts of its General Manager even when these do not fall within the perimeter of the corporate purpose, unless it is able to prove that the third party in question was aware of the fact that the act exceeded this purpose or could not fail to be aware of it in view of the circumstances, with publication of the articles of association alone being considered insufficient to constitute such proof.

The General Manager may not be aged more than 65 years old. If the General Manager reaches this age limit he will automatically be considered to have resigned. However, his term office will continue until the next Executive Board meeting, during which the new General Manager will be appointed.

When the General Manager has the status of Board member, his term of office may not exceed that of his term of office as a Board member.

He may be revoked at any time by the Executive Board. If the decision to proceed with this revocation is not based on justifiable grounds, it may result in the payment of damages, except when the General Manager assumes the duties of the Chairman of the Executive Board.

By means of a simple decision taken on the basis of a majority vote among the Board members present or represented, the Executive Board will choose between the two options for exercising the general management duties mentioned in the first part of the paragraph.

The shareholders and third parties are informed of this choice in accordance with the legal and statutory conditions.

The choice made by the Executive Board will therefore remain applicable until a contrary decision is taken by the board or, at the board's choice, for the duration of the General Manager's term of office.

When the general management of the company is handled by the Chairman of the Executive Board, the various provisions applicable to the General Manager will also apply to him.

Pursuant to the provisions of Article 706-43 of the French Code of Criminal Procedure, the General Manager may validly delegate the power to represent the company in any criminal proceedings which may be taken against it, to any person of his choice.

8

Following a proposal from the General Manager, the Executive Board may grant a mandate to one or several natural persons to assist the General Manager in the capacity of Assistant General Managers.

In agreement with the General Manager, the Executive Board will determine the extent and duration of the powers granted to the Assistant General Managers. The Executive Board will set their remuneration. When an Assistant General Manager has the status of board member, the duration of his term of office may not exceed that of his term of office as a Board member.

With regard to third parties, the Assistant General Managers possess the same powers as the General Managers. Among other things, the Assistant General Managers have the power to sue.

The number of Assistant General Managers may not exceed five.

The Assistant General Manager(s) may be revoked at any time by the Executive Board, following a proposal from the General Manager. If the decision to proceed with this revocation is not based on justifiable grounds, it may result in the payment of damages.

The Assistant General Manager may not be aged more than 65 years old. If the Assistant General Manager reaches this age limit he will automatically be considered to have resigned. However, his term office will continue until the next Executive Board meeting, during which the new Assistant General Manager will be appointed.

When the General Manager ceases to perform or is no longer able to perform his duties, unless decided otherwise by the Executive Board the Assistant General Manager(s) will continue to perform his/their duties until the new General Manager is appointed.

Article 15 - Advisory board

Following a proposal from the Executive Board, the ordinary general meeting may appoint advisers. The Executive Board may also appoint them directly, subject to ratification by the next general meeting.

The advisers, (the number of which may not exceed five) constitute a college. They are chosen freely according to their skills. They are chosen freely according to their skills.

They are appointed for a period of three years, expiring at the end of the ordinary general shareholders' meeting ruling on the accounts for the financial year gone by

The advisory board considers those questions which the Executive Board or its Chairman submit to it, in order to examine such questions and to issue its opinions. The advisers attend the Executive Board meetings and take part in the decision-making processes, in a consultative role only, without their absence affecting the validity of the decisions taken.

They will be invited to the board meetings in accordance with the same conditions as the board members.

The Executive Board may pay the advisers, with such sums being deducted from the total value of the attendance fees allocated by the general meeting to the board members.

Each financial year lasts for one year, beginning on January 1 and ending on December 31.

Article 21 - Profit - Legal reserve

At least five percent (5%) of the profit from the financial year, reduced where applicable by prior losses, will be allocated to the constitution of a reserve fund known as the "legal reserve". This deduction will

12

no longer be compulsory when the total value of the legal reserve equals one tenth of the registered capital.

The distributable profits are comprised of the profit from the financial year reduced by prior losses and the deductions provided for in the previous paragraph, and increased by the profit carried forward.

Article 22 - Dividends

If the accounting results from the financial year, as approved by the general meeting, reveal the existence of a distributable profit, the general meeting will decide to allocate this to one or several reserve funds, stipulating the allocation or purpose, to carry it forward or to distribute it in the form of dividends

After having confirmed the existence of the reserves available to it, the general meeting may decide to distribute the sums taken from these reserves. In this case, the decision must expressly stipulate the reserve funds from which these sums will be taken. However, the dividends will be paid out as a priority from the distributable profit from the financial year.

The dividend payment terms are set by the general meeting or failing this by the Executive Board.

However, the payment of dividends must take place within a maximum period of nine months after the closure of the financial year.

The general meeting ruling on the accounts from the financial year, may grant each shareholder, for all or part of the dividend to be distributed, the option to choose between the payment of the dividend in cash or in shares.

Similarly, in the case of the payment made to each shareholder of a down payment on the dividends decided by the Executive Board, and for all or part of the said down payment on the dividend, the ordinary general meeting (ruling in accordance with the conditions stipulated in Article L. 232-12 of the French Commercial Code) may authorise the Executive Board to grant an option to pay the interim dividend either in cash or in shares.

The total value of these down

13

payments may not exceed the level of profit described in the paragraphs above. In such cases, the Board of Directors may not use the option described in the above paragraphs.

Article 24 - Loss of half of the share capital

If, following losses duly recorded in the accounting documents, the company's shareholders' equity falls below half of the share capital, the Executive Board must call a special general meeting within the four months following the approval of the accounts revealing this loss, for the purpose of deciding whether there are grounds for the early dissolution of the company.

If dissolution is not announced, then at the latest by the end of the second financial year following that during which the recording of the losses occurs, and subject to the legal provisions concerning the minimum capital stock of public limited companies, the capital must be reduced to a level at least equal to that of the losses which it has not been possible to deduct from the reserves, if during this deadline the shareholders' equity has not been reconstituted to a level at least equal to half of the share capital.

Article 26 - The appointment of liquidators

Upon expiry of the company's duration or in the event of early dissolution, the general meeting of shareholders will specify the liquidation method and appoint one or several liquidators, whose powers it will set and who will perform their duties pursuant to the law. The appointment of the liquidators will

14

terminate the powers and duties of the board members, the Chairman, of the General Manager and the Assistant General Managers.

Article 27 - Liquidation

After all liabilities have been settled, the balance of the remaining assets will firstly be used for the payment to the shareholders of the value of the capital paid on their shares, which has not yet been depreciated.

If there is a surplus, this will be divided among all shares.

The shareholders will be invited at the end of the liquidation process to rule on the final accounts, to acknowledge and approve the liquidators' management activities, to discharge the liquidators from their duties, and to confirm the end of the liquidation process.
