PARIS -- November 08, 2012

Regulatory News:

Despite an uncertain economic context, Capgemini  Group(Paris:CAP)reports Q3
2012 consolidated revenues of €2,523 million, up 6.1% on published revenues
(i.e. at current Group structure and exchange rates) for the same period last
year and 1.0% like-for-like (i.e. at constant Group structure and exchange
rates): the difference between the two rates is mainly due to favorable
exchange rate effects.

Revenues             Revenues                                 Q3 2011
€2,523 million    €2,378 million    published        + 6.1%
                                    like-for-like    + 1.0%

This growth in revenues breaks down as follows:

  *by business, Consulting Services, Technology Services and Local
    Professional Services reported average revenue growth of 1.3%,
    like-for-like. Technology Services (+3.4%) continued to grow at the same
    rate as last quarter, while Consulting Services and Local Professional
    Services (Sogeti) contracted (-4.0% and -2.4% respectively). Outsourcing
    Services reported growth of 0.5%.
  *by region, North America – which emerged as the Group’s number one market
    in Q3 in revenue terms – continued to report excellent performance (+24.9%
    on published revenues and +10.9% like-for-like). The United Kingdom and
    Ireland region enjoyed ongoing growth (+12.7% on published revenues and
    1.4% like-for-like), with increases across all businesses more than
    offsetting the foreseen drop in revenues with the UK tax authorities.
    France reported a 4.0% drop in revenues in the quarter. Benelux revenues
    continued to fall (-13.8%), although measures taken by the Group from last
    September should enable a marked recovery in profitability in this region
    from 2013. The other regions reported average revenue growth of 3.9%,
    driven by the dynamism of the Asia Pacific region (+18.5%) and the Nordic
    countries (+10.7%).

Bookings recorded since the beginning of the year total €7,173 million, down
slightly on the same period in 2011. Bookings recorded by Consulting Services,
Technology Services and Local Professional Services (Sogeti) are broadly
stable.

As of September 30, 2012, the total headcount of the Group was 123,229, up 5%
on one year previously. Capgemini recruited 30,000 new employees over the last
12 months. The headcount includes 47,943 offshore employees, representing 39%
of the total headcount, including 38,731 in India at that date.

Bolstered by this solid performance, Capgemini confirms its objective of
like-for-like growth in excess of 1% for the year as a whole and an increase
in the operating margin over the whole year, in line with the general
consensus.

For Paul Hermelin, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Capgemini Group:
“Our continued revenue growth, the stabilization of prices and the rise in our
headcount are all signs of our resilience, despite macro-economic
fluctuations. The development of our offering portfolio towards high
value-added segments and of our geographical mix in favor, primarily, of the
United States, as well as the continuation of our offshore strategy, allow us
to provide an optimal response to client demands.”
