The assessment of the numerous attractive bids was conducted in accordance with financial and qualitative criteria, as well as taking into account the potential for future development of Airest. These exclusive negotiations to finalise the contractual details are expected to result in the transaction reaching a conclusion in the first quarter of 2006. Both companies have agreed that the transaction shall remain confidential until that point.
