At an extraordinary general meeting scheduled for December 2004, the planned capital increase by a non-cash capital contribution against shares subject to the exclusion of subscription rights is to be submitted to the shareholders for approval. The effective execution of this contribution is to be concluded in the first semester of 2005.
