i. SVR is the most recognized brand of the group of companies belonging to the Applicant. The use of the SVR brand started in 1962 in the pharmacy of Simone and Robert Veret in Picardie, France and quickly gave birth to the compagnhy Laboratoires SVR manufacturing, promoting and selling dermo-cosmetics under the SVR brand. Since then, the recognition of the SVR brand has never ceased to increase. The SVR brand became an important asset of the company Laboratoires SVR wich got organized in 2006 as follows : ALAUZIS SARL– not to be confused with the recently created SARL Alauzis which is a holding company and the director of SVR Group SAS – was created as the holding company under whose umbrella Laboratoires SVR SAS and Emulscience SAS were active compagnies in the dermatological and cosmetics industry (respectively for promotion, marketingand sell and for production and research & development). In 2011, the above mentioned group of three compagnies has been reorganized under the umbrella of the holding company SVR Group SAS (the Applicant), replacing the former Alauzis SARL (same registration number - new name).

ii. From the Applicant’s perspective, .SVR will bring a high degree of recognition and specialization to the currently existing name space.
