distribution costs, the €70.2 million in restructuring costs (including
those incurred by the voluntary separation plan) and the €11.7million
in strategic consulting fees in relation to the Group’s reorganization, all

recognized in 2011. In 2013, the most material additions to these
provisions concerned the shares of Accor Partecipazioni Italia
