In 2009, the incidental gains reported in other operating income/(expenses) related mainly to results from acquisitions and divestments (PTA Pakistan, LII Europe).

In 2008, the incidental losses related to costs of external advisors for the integration of ICI, the costs of our new corporate identity as launched in April 2008 and the foreign currency results on a legal provision in the UK.
