As a result, Shareholders´ Equity decreased from EUR36.9 million as at September 30, 2009 to EUR5.5 million as at December 31, 2009.

Pursuant to the terms of the voluntary takeover bid for CWT´s shares launched by GLV Inc. in October 2009, CWT´s shareholders have until February 19, 2010 to tender their shares.
