Dear Sir or Dear Madam,

Following the agreement signed between Caisse des Dépôts and Caisse d’Epargne Group which provides for the two partners to bu ild a major full-service bank together, CDC
IXIS Group is set to undergo two major changes in the next few months. This letter marks our intention to keep you personally informed of the ensuing process.

The first change concerns capital ownership. On July 1, 2004, Caisse Nationale des Caisses d’Epargne (CNCE), the Caisse d’Epargne Group’s lead company, takes control of
CDC IXIS in a transaction that will see the bank and its subsidiaries join one of France’s leading banking groups, offering maximum financial security, with €17 billion of
consolidated shareholders’ equity (pro forma 12/31/03) and ratings of AA/Aa2/AA. Caisse des Dépôts will be the Group’s strategic partner, with a 35% equity stake in CNCE.

The second change concerns organizational structure. In the final quarter of 2004, CDC IXIS and its French and international subsidiaries will be reorganized to form Caisse
d’Epargne Group’s investment banking arm, operating under the IXIS brand name. As part of this process, all of CDC IXIS’s liabilities and commitments will be allocated to the
business lines concerned. Its various activities will be carried out via three subsidiaries controlled directly by CNCE:
• IXIS Corporate & Investment Bank, which will be created out of CDC IXIS Capital Markets,
• IXIS Asset Management, a financial and real-estate asset management specialist,
• IXIS Investor Services, a new institutional custody and investor services subsidiary.

Caisse des Dépôts’ guaranty in favor of CDC IXIS will be transferred in identical form to IXIS Corporate & Investment Bank. C aisse des Dépôts will continue to guarantee
transactions already concluded by CDC IXIS until they are completed as well as new transactions effected by IXIS Corporate & Investment Bank up until January 23, 2007. To
complement this guaranty, within the framework of Caisse d’Epargne Group’s financial solidarity mechanism, CNCE will act as g uarantor for transactions that do not fall within the
scope of the Caisse des Dépôts guaranty.

Our integration into a major banking group offering a diversity of business lines and services will ensure we can continue to accompany you in your development and act as
partner for your financial transactions and risk & investment management needs, all in a fully secure manner. You will retain your usual contacts while at the same time having
access to a broader range of banking and financial services. We are naturally keen to ensure your company personnel are kept regularly abreast of the operational implications of
these changes and we will therefore shortly be sending them full documentation on the subject. Our own staff is also available to provide any additional information they might
require. Rest assured that we will continue to pay the same high level of attention to maintaining quality relations and to the reliability of our transaction execution.

                                                                                 Yours truly,

                                                                                        Anthony Orsatelli                       Laurent Vieillevigne
                                                                                   Chairman of the Executive Board          Member of the Executive Board

                                                                                                                                                                         Page 33
