      Pursuant to the provisions of Article 112 of the French General Tax Code, to the extent that all earnings and other distributable
      reserves have previously been distributed, this distribution, paid from additional paid-in capital, would be considered a return
      of capital distribution to shareholders. As such, the amount does not constitute a distribution of earnings.
