Comments by Rokus van Iperen, Chairman of the Board of Executive Directors:
Océ realized revenues of € 676 million, exactly the same amount as last year. We significantly increased our EBIT, excluding certain Canon related one-off items. This improvement reflected the better utilization of the supply centers as well as our action program related to approximately 2000 job reductions in 2009 and 2010.
As already anticipated in the first quarter earnings release, Océ absorbed substantial one-off items in the second quarter, following completion of the offer by Canon. These one-off items amounted to € 103 million on reported net income and €48 million on free cash flow.
The second quarter was marked by the successful completion of the transaction with Canon on 9 March 2010. In the second half of 2010, our compelling combination is expected to show the first commercial results via cross-selling of Canon products in Océ channels and vice versa."

The cash flow from investing activities was – € 22 million (2009: – € 27 million).

The one-offs recorded under operating expenses amounted in total to € 27 million due to the fact that Océ impaired intangible assets related to supply contracts with certain OEM suppliers as well as to the future harmonization of Océ IT systems with Canon. Additionally, Océ incurred advisory fees related to the Canon transaction.
Océ, through Canon Inc., has refinanced both the multicurrency revolving credit facilities and the United States Private Placements.
The total one-off finance expenses related to the refinancing amount to € 40 million. The refinancing by Canon does not include financial covenants or commitment fees and is at more favourable interest margins than the aforementioned facilities. The positive effect from the refinancing is not included in the abovementioned one-off items and will be visible in finance expenses from the third quarter onwards.
The income tax effect of in total € 20 million results from the abovementioned items and from changes in the valuation of tax assets and liabilities. For example, as a consequence of the change of control, some of the tax assets in Germany and the United States were (partially) forfeited due to local tax laws.
