Let X be a compactification of C2 such that a polynomial p can be extended to a regular mapping p: X → CP1. If generic fibers of p are irreducible, then we show that the number of reducible fibers is less than the number of horizontal components of the curve X-C2. If p is rational, then the restriction of p to every horizontal component except one is a one-to-one mapping.
