High rate of contract renewal (example France) Water: a significant renewal rate - above 90% – 2004-2007: €320m in renewed revenue, €29m lost, €31m won and net revenue won of €58m thanks to new DSP-type service contracts – Average residual length of existing contracts = 7 years - average length of newly won contracts greater than 11 years Waste management: – 2004-2007: €614m in renewed revenue, €183m lost, €291m won and net revenue won of €108m – A diversified industrial and tertiary client mix representative of the main sectors, with low exposure to any one sector (the four main business sectors making up the client portfolio represent only around 1/3 of revenue generated by industrial and tertiary clients) Energy services: renewal rate above 80% (84% in 2007) – More than offset by new contracts won and extensions, taking the average growth rate in France to +8.2% since 2003 – 38,000 contracts in France.
