EBITDA pre exceptionals for the reconciliation amounted to minus €52 million, on a par with the minus €50 million reported in the prior-year quarter. For the first half, EBITDA pre exceptionals was minus €91 million, against minus €92 million in the prior-year period. Earnings in both periods were affected by the planned expansion of our central research activities, among other factors.

The €2 million in exceptional charges reported in the reconciliation for the second quarter and the €5 million for the first six months related primarily to expenses for the design and implementation of IT projects.
