3. Net general expenses

In the first quarter of 2013, net general expenses amount to €5.9 million, with an increase of €0.5 million compared with the same period of the prior year (€5.4 million).
The balance includes the nominal cost of the EXOR stock incentive plans for about €1.2 million (€0.5 million in the first quarter of 2012). The increase of €0.7 million derives mainly from the new grants awarded during 2012 under the EXOR 2008-2019 Stock Option Plan and the new Incentive Plan approved on May 29, 2012.
