41 operations carried out compared to 37 in 2009 and 47 in 2008
4 total acquisition operations compared to 1 in 2009 and 10 in 2008.
520,280,000 euros of total investment compared to 85,700,000 in 2009 and 175 million in 2008, a very significant increase in investment, even discounting the 250 million from Edreams which would leave it at 270,280. 000 euro. In 2010 three times as much was invested as in 2009 (according to the data we know)
