Financial assets held at fair value through profit or loss consisted of equity instruments of listed companies. We have no restrictions on the sale of these equity instruments and the assets are not pledged under any of our liabilities. These instruments are designated as financial assets held at fair value through profit or loss which qualify for level 1 fair value measurement based upon the closing price of such securities on Euronext at each reporting date.

Fair value changes on financial assets with fair value through profit or loss are recognized in other financial income/other financial expenses.
