Consolidar A.F.J.P. (undergoing liquidation proceedings): On December 4, 2008, Law No. 26,425 was enacted, providing for the elimination of the capitalization regime that was part of the Integrated Retirement and Pension System, and its subsequent merger into and replacement with a single pay-as-you go system named the Argentine Integrated Retirement and Pensions System (SIPA). Consequently, Consolidar A.F.J.P. S.A. ceased to manage the resources that were part of the individual capitalization accounts of affiliates and beneficiaries of the capitalization regime of the Integrated Retirement and Pension System, which were transferred to the Guarantee Fund for the Sustainability of the Argentine Retirement and Pension Regime as they were already invested, and the Argentine Social Security Office (ANSES) is now the sole and exclusive owner of those assets and rights. Based on the foregoing and taking into consideration that it was impossible for Consolidar A.F.J.P. S.A. to comply with the corporate purpose for which it was incorporated, the Unanimous General and Extraordinary Shareholders’ Meeting held on December 28, 2009, resolved approve the dissolution and subsequent liquidation of that company effective as of December 31, 2009, as they considered that decision was in the best interest of the company’s creditors and shareholders. To date, Consolidar A.F.J.P. S.A. is still undergoing liquidation proceedings.
Rombo Compañía Financiera S.A.: Rombo Compañía Financiera S.A is the main finance company of Renault’s network of dealers, both for new and second-hand vehicles.
