Q3 2006
   Major investment projects in final negotiation phase

At 30 September 2006, the Net Asset Value per share    (Limited Partners' share), net of any tax liabilities, came to 12.82 euros,    up 5.1% on the float price of 12.20 euros at the end of March 2006.

This increase primarily reflects the revaluation of the interest in Financière    Hélios (holding company for the acquisition of Séchilienne-Sidec),    carried out for the first time at 30 June 2006 after the stake had been held    for 12 months.

At 30 September 2006, the NAV per share was down slightly in relation to    the end of June 2006 (12.90 euros), reflecting the management costs incurred    and the amortisation of costs linked to the initial public offering, with the    company not having sold off any interests at this point.

Since it was floated, Amboise Investissement has invested and committed 51.9    million euros in eight companies, including France Telecom Mobile Satellite    Communications (investment currently being finalised).

Several investment projects are at an advanced review stage, including three    major projects in the final negotiation phase.

At 30 September 2006 , total NAV came to 127.1 million euros and can be broken    down as follows:

  • Unlisted companies: 40.8%
  • Cash: 54.6%
  • IPO costs: 4.6%
