The following nominees will be proposed for appointment to the General Meeting

developing  management  talent  and  corporate  efficiency  drives  to   human

over the  chairmanship  of  the  Nomination  and  Remunerations  Committee,  a 
position currently held by Myriam MAESTRONI.

Daniel VALOT, an honorary member of  the French Court of Auditors, spent  most 
of his career in the energy sector,  first at Total (1981-1999), where he  was 
head of the Exploration and Production Division, and then at Technip (a  world 
leader in oil engineering), where he was CEO from 1999 to 2007. Mr. Valot  has

After beginning  his  career  as  an aerospace  project  engineer  at  Société

He was head of  several departments and subsidiaries  at Lafarge before  being 
appointed Deputy CEO in 2000 and a member of the Executive Committee in  2007. 
Jean-Carlos Angulo  will  bring to  Séchilienne  Sidec's Board  his  extensive 
knowledge of Brazil, a market that is a major priority for the Group.

Jacques PETRY, Séchilienne Sidec's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said:
"Personally and on behalf of  the entire Board of  Directors, I would like  to 
thank Mr. Jean  STERN, Mr.  Guy RICO and  Mr. Xavier  LENCOU-BAREME for  their 
important contribution to the  success of our Group.  We will now put  forward 
three new  candidates to  the Board  for shareholders'  approval. The  special 
skill sets and years of international experience these candidates possess will
have a durable effect on the  Group's growth. If the candidates are  approved, 
the Board will then  include two women,  each of whom is  destined to chair  a 
Board Committee."
