ions will be broadened so that we further develop creativity within R&D and deliver innovation to patients. The position of Chief Strategic Officer has been created at the Executive Committee level to achieve this integrated approach to strategy and business development.

This transformation program has already led to the rollout of a number of initiatives, the conclusions of which will be implemented from the summer of 2009.

Commenting on the objectives of the program, Chris Viehbacher, sanofi-aventis Chief Executive Officer, said: "Our ambition is to become a diversified global leader in healthcare, with one of the most productive R&D in the sector. Our objective is to deliver EPS growth ahead of current expectations of financial markets, while strengthening or building platforms for growth for 2012 and beyond."
