Business and earnings over the first half of 2008 The Group's revenues came to 92.5 million euros over the first half of 2008, compared with 99.3 million euros in H1 2007, down 6.8% (-4.9% at constant exchange rates).

The Pharmaceutical Synthesis division recorded a 10.5% drop, primarily reflecting the impact of:
- The delivery in H1 2007 of an exceptional order produced in 2006 for 4.2

million euros,

- A reduction in finished product stocks with the main client for 2.2

million euros,

- The dollar's depreciation for around 1.0 million euros. In the Fine Specialty Chemicals division, business is down slightly, falling 1.3% (+ 0.9% at constant exchange rates), primarily in light of the continued client portfolio selection policy aimed at eliminating products that are not deemed to be profitable enough.

Despite an unfavorable dollar effect, representing 1.4 margin points or 1.3 million euros for all the divisions, and despite the slowdown in activity, the EBITDA margin came in at 14% (15.4% at constant exchange rates). Current operating income therefore represents 6.0 million euros, compa
