                                               business
              Paris, April 1, 2008                                           1/2




Carbone Lorraine has finalised the disposal of its rail and motorcycle braking 
business to the Faiveley  group, which will continue to run it at the 
Gennevilliers plant (Paris suburbs - France), Carbone Lorraine's advanced 
technology facility.

The business generates sales of €17 million and has 80 employees. The agreement 
leads to an amount of sale of 26 million of euros.

The carbon-carbon composite aerospace braking business will remain part of 
Carbone Lorraine. New fast-growing applications of this technology are 
developing in the Group's Advanced Materials and Technologies division.

This disposal will sharpen Carbone Lorraine's focus on its core business. It 
will also boost its financial resources and facilitate execution of its 
profitable growth strategy predicated on upbeat markets and selective 
acquisitions.
