The Arrangement Letter specified that the Audited Condensed Consolidated Special Purpose Financial Statements and the Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Special Purpose Interim Financial Statements had to include a note summarising the significant accounting policies. Under the Arrangement Letter it was specified that the Audited Condensed Consolidated Special Purpose Financial Statements and the Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Special Purpose Interim Financial Statements do not include the necessary disclosures in order to provide a true and fair view in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards as adopted by the EU for the purpose of the bondholders of the Bonds.
These Reports are confidential and so the Issuer has sought Deloitte’s consent for the Report to be disclosed to you. This Reliance Letter determines the terms and conditions on which Deloitte will provide the Issuer with its consent to the disclosure of the Reports to you and on which Deloitte assumes a duty of care (“middelenverbintenis” – “obligation de moyen”) to you. For the avoidance of doubt, any restrictions on use and disclosure of the Reports or parts thereof do not apply to any confidential information, which is or comes into the public domain otherwise than by breach of any undertakings from this Reliance Letter or which was already known to you prior to the disclosure of the Reports or which is independently developed by you without using (the) confidential information or which is lawfully received and is to your knowledge free from any obligation of confidentiality and which Deloitte authorizes to be disclosed.
Although this letter is addressed to you, you acknowledge that Deloitte was not instructed by you and that the Reports were prepared on the basis of instructions received from the Addressees only and addresses issues solely from the Addressees’s perspective in connection with the Bonds. The Reports have been prepared solely at the direction of the Addressees and may not include all procedures. Consequently, the issues covered in the Reports and the emphasis placed upon them may not address or reflect the specific requirements, interests or circumstances of you. You should consider the extent to which the Reports meets your specific requirements and make any additional enquiries you consider necessary.
Deloitte has not carried out any work since the date of the Reports. The Reports do not incorporate the effects, if any, of events and circumstances which may have occurred or information which may have come to light subsequent to that date. Deloitte makes no representation as to whether, had Deloitte carried out such work, there would have been a material effect on the Reports. Further, Deloitte has no obligation to update, and Deloitte will not update, the Reports nor does Deloitte have any obligation to notify any party to whom Deloitte has assumed a contractual duty if any matters come to Deloitte’s attention which might affect the continuing validity of Deloitte’s comments or conclusions.
In signing this letter, you agree with the above and the following terms and conditions:
Deloitte’s aggregate liability to all parties that are or will be allowed to rely on the Reports (the Addressees and other third party beneficiaries, including you, included) is strictly limited to the maximum amount as determined in the Agreement (EUR 3 million);
the limitation reflected above will expressly, but not solely, apply to any liability deriving from any fault for which Deloitte Bedrijfsrevisoren BV ovve CVBA is liable, except in the event their liability results from a personal intentional fault (“faute intentionnelle” / “opzettelijke fout”) or a personal fraud; as a consequence, these limitations will expressly apply to any liability deriving from any other fault for which Deloitte is liable;
where it appears that two or more cases of damage result from the same fault committed by Deloitte, they will be deemed to constitute one single liability event, and therefore Deloitte’s liability thereon, will be limited to one time of the highest liability amount under any of the relevant engagements or Agreements;
unless otherwise mandatorily provided by law, in no event will Deloitte be liable for damage in respect of (a) loss of profit, goodwill, business opportunity or anticipated savings or benefits, (b) loss or corruption of data or (c) indirect or consequential loss or damage.

You acknowledge that, where you do so, a third party might bring, or threaten to bring, an action, proceeding or claim against Deloitte or other Deloitte Entities (as defined below);
other than for any inadvertent, accidental or mistaken use or disclosure of confidential information from the Reports provided that you have exercised the same precautions as a reasonable party would take to safeguard its own confidential information, you agree to indemnify and hold harmless Deloitte and/or the Deloitte entities against all actions, proceedings and claims brought or threatened against Deloitte and/or the Deloitte entities, and all loss, damage and expense (including legal expenses) relating thereto where such action, proceeding or claim has arisen out of your access to the Reports or results form or is connected with your failure to comply with the terms of this letter;
this consent to allow certain access to the Reports by you does not signify that Deloitte has been engaged by you, or that you have entered into a client relationship with Deloitte. Furthermore, Deloitte makes no representation as to the sufficiency of the Reports for your purpose;
