3. Net general expenses

In the first quarter of 2015 net general expenses amount to €4.7 million. The decrease of €0.8 million compared to the same period of the prior year (€5.5 million) is mainly due to the reduction in personnel costs.
The balance includes the notional cost of EXOR’s stock option plans of approximately €0.8 million (€1.2 million in the corresponding period of the prior year). The reduction of €0.4 million is attributable to the forfeiture of the options on the EXOR Stock Option Plan 2012-2021.
