A new significant acquisition: BS Vision

Acquisition of 100% of the capital of BS Vision

Générale Location announces the signature of the protocol of agreement over the entire capital of BS Vision.
BS Vision anticipates net sales of about 27m€ for the year 2002.

Taking into consideration the net profitability and an important net cash flow, this acquisition will proved relutive immediately. In term of valorization of acquisition, this action lies perfectly in the line of acquisitions realized during the course of the past few years.

Therefore, Générale Location plans to introduce this competence to all the Group 's subsidiaries which practice a related activity.

For Olivier GINON, President, "this new acquisition demonstrates the Group 's capacity to even out in an harmonious manner its portfolio of activities, while securing its profitability by placing it beyond the impact of economical fluctuations."
