With summer in Geneva in full swing, PEG S.A. welcomes you to its fourth edition of the
company newsletter. Here at PEG S.A. we have had a very successful past few months,
with our business ever increasing in size and scope. We attended the IEEE-IAS/PCE
conference in Miami, as well as the Cemtech Asia Conference in Singapore, and the
Intercem Conference in Mumbai, all of which proved fruitful in relation to the acquisi-
tion of new contracts. Since our last newsletter, we have increased in size with 17 new
members added to our team.
We wish you a pleasant read of this fourth edition, and wish you success and prosperity
for 2009.

                                Yours Sincerely, Marc Lambert - Chief Executive Officer
