1. The company believes that EBITDA is meaningful measure of performance, because it presents the company's results of operations without the non- cash impact of depreciation and amortization. EBITDA is reported excluding stock-based compensation expense.


According to the AMF regulations in use, targets may not be considered as forecasts. Net income may not be estimated on the basis of the above mentioned EBITDA and on the basis of non-cash expenses previously recorded.

Impact of Exchange Rates

The company serves large enterprises on a worldwide basis. As a result, it has extensive international operations and, thus, significant exposure to exchange rate fluctuations, in particular those of the U.S. dollar. In 2006, and continuing through the third quarter of 2007, the U.S. dollar has fluctuated compared to the euro. As a result, the comparability of the company's revenues and results of operations expressed in euros were affected.
