Much of the enormous additional costs incurred for the business to be put into service on 10 October 2014 are still pending, as we notified by letter on March 29, 2013 to get your support. This cost, which is approximately 200 million dollars, includes approximately 120 items.

I sincerely hope that financial matters related to the support of your individual will be settled and paid without delay.
